My 99 year old great grandfather was at my house for Christmas and we were watching cake boss because it’s his favourite show, except it was already recorded so I fast forwarded through the commercial and my grandpa screamed and said “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?? ARE YOU TIME TRAVELLING?? ELLIE YOU CAN’T DO THAT”

Probably wouldn’t be terrible, but I’ve decided not to tell her unless I actually end up with a girl or something (and since I’m v cozy with boyfriend, unlikely). She’s odd about such things, like she brags about having known gay people who were lovely and then she’ll turn around and call Sue Perkins a nasty dyke. *shrug*
the fact women are viewed as being more sexy at 15 than 40 is the creepiest thing in the world
when i was 12 years old my health teacher told us all that he thought girls were the most beautiful at age 14-15 and we would never be that beautiful again for the rest of our lives back then it scared me that i wouldnt stay pretty once i got older it scared me that he found no shame in saying that, and neither do countless other men
FUN STORY: my grandma lives in a city that was currently taken over by drug dealers and gangs and it’s now divided in two and my grandma is the oNLY CITIZEN IN THE WHOLE CITY who can go walking freely through both sides of the town because she used to do community work and feed the poor kids and those gang members were all fed by her so they let her come and go as she wants SO WHAT WE LEARN TODAY IS TO BE FUCKING NICE TO KIDS BC U MIGHT BE DEALING W FUTURE GANG MEMBERS
Friendly reminder that it’s ok to enjoy media that doesn’t always feature or represent different genders or orientations or races but it’s important to recognize flaws and legitimate criticisms of it and not blindly defend it to the death just because you like it.
