My name is irrelevant and I have an intolerance to wool (I don't I lied it's a quote and if you don't get then go away) no! No! I was kidding! Don't go, I think I love you! I'm 15, freckled, owner of 6 cats, enjoyor of food for fat people and am secretly made up of two midgets in a really long coat. If you want to be my friend/secret lover/fellow fangirl then send me some messages or pictures of cats.
shout out to people with abusive mothers who have to deal with the world acting like every single mother’s love is so expansive and unconditional and tender when that is the opposite of what we experienced
You two are not fit for raising a child. I feel bad for your kid.
I mean she may only be 7 months old but so far she hasn’t sent anyone anon hate so I think we’re doing better job than your parents did, just saying.
Earlier today Laura Chernikoff made this tweet
Which prompted this conversation
And that got me interested in working out what the demographics have been for the Special Guests (as listed on their websites) of the past four major YouTube events. I feel like we’re all generally aware that women and people of color are underrepresented at these things, but when you look at the numbers it becomes embarrassingly clear how ridiculous this disparity is.
The highest percentage of female Special Guests at any of these events was 32% at Summer in the City. LESS THAN 1/3.
The highest percentage of Special Guests of color* at any of these events is 16% at the current Buffer Festival. LESS THAN 1/6. (And SitC only had ONE PoC on their Special Guest list this year, which is fucking absurd.)
I don’t want to rant about this too much, I just sort of want to make these numbers known because I find them maddening. And if you guys do too, I encourage you to message the organizers of these events, let them know your thoughts, and maybe recommend them some of the incredible prominent women and PoC we have in this community.

- Buffer Festival: firstname.lastname@example.org (Corey contacted me not too long ago about female representation at Buffer and I gave him a ton of names, but I don’t know if he had time to take any of those suggestions on board in time for the event. Hopefully it’s something he and the team are genuinely serious about and that next year will be better on that).
C’mon YouTube events. I love you, but you seriously need to get your shit together.
*Note that my count is based primarily on looks and the people whose races I know for sure. If I made a mistake and missed anyone who’s white passing, let me know.
taylor swift is like that aunt that tries to be “hip” with the young’ns and “with the times” and then asks you what does bae stand for and after you tell her she starts calling everything bae even the lamp next to the couch
HEY YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE LAMP NEXT TO MY COUCH AND I WILL HAVE YOU KNOW THAT IT IS, IN FACT, VERY MUCH BAE.
Deleted scene - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1
WHY WAS THIS DELETED
THIS IS VERY SIGNIFICANT CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
WHY THE FLYING FUCK WOULD YOU DELETE THIS
they also deleted Dudley saying that Harry isn’t a waste of space.
because they thought a creepy-ass scene where harry does up ginny’s dress was more worth the screentime
SOMEONE SAID IT
In case you needed proof that Peta is literal scum.
Not to mention that in a 2010 inspection conducted by a VDACS veterinarian, it was discovered that 84 percent of the animals Peta took in were killed within 24 hours. [source]
A quick reminder that PETA is literal scum of the earth.
PETA is crap.
The autism one makes me the most furious.
Sometimes I wish I wasn’t on this planet.
I fucking hate PETA, and I’m a vegetarian.
‘it’s not cold’ said the PE teacher with a coat on
“running for 20 minutes isn’t that bad”, said the PE teacher from the chair
‘you’ve got to stay healthy’ said the PE teacher eating a mars bar
“Being on your period is no excuse.” said the male PE teacher with no uterus
