A male author can write about unlikable male characters. They’re called anti-heroes and it’s called a novel.

Gillian Flynn on people calling her writing misogynistic in Glamour magazine, the October 2014 issue. The level of sass and taking no shit from both her and Rosamund Pike-who Flynn interviews in this article-is strong and gives me life. (via samishoward)

Nobody’s called me misogynistic or misanthropic.  What am I doing wrong?

Oh, right.  I write A) genre, B) kids’, C) teenagers.  As far as adult literature is concerned, we don’t count.

Too bad.

Force kids in school to read crappy, overrated books that are “the best books ever written” solely because they’re “classics” and then call those kids idiots because those aren’t the kind of books they like to read and sit back and wonder why we have a nation full of multiple generations worth of people who willfully and proudly refuse to read.

hello

Don’t forget that most of them are written by white guys who died before 1900. (Bitter much about the DWG?  Oh, a tad.)

one of my roommates used to work with 5th graders in a creative writing class thing and they had to write a romance and most of the kids wrote stories about princesses and crap but this one little girl wrote about how a marshmallow fell in love with a mug of cocoa and he loved the cocoa so much that in order to be with her he melted and died like wow kid that’s some shakespearian shit right there

For those of you who don’t know

licoriceplease:

First/second/third world terminology refers to whether or not a country was allied with the US during the Cold War. First world = allied; second world = opposed; third world = neutral

It literally has nothing to do with how “developed” a country is

These terms are outdated and we need to stop using them

In Sociology, this week’s module is on propaganda and marketing.  For homework, we were asked to make a poster for an imaginary campaign either for a made-up product or a current social issue.  This is mine.  

So strong

gawd.

As a graphic designer, let me just say that PSA ads, even if you already have the verbage, are hella hard to come up with in a way that it has the impact it should
this just fucking blows it out of the park.

You’ve gotten to know all my crazy, but I still know nothing about you. You don’t trust people. Not your employees, your clients….nobody. Not even your husband.

"Oh, no," I whisper as I catch sight of the hospital. What used to be the hospital. I move past the wounded, past the burning plane wrecks, fixated on the disaster ahead of me. People screaming, running about frantically, but unable to help. The bombs have collapsed the hospital roof and set the building on fire, effectively trapping the patients within. A group of rescuers has assembled, trying to clear a path to the inside. But I already know what they will find. If the crushing debris and the flames didn’t get them, the smoke did.
