This is awesome. It’s true women aren’t meant to think good things about themselves—men, and other women, tell you that you suck all the time, and are unworthy of attention, and disagreeing with the fact that you suck makes you SO MUCH WORSE.

Every which way, you suck. A woman talking as if she expects someone to listen is a target. A woman looking pleased with how she looks is a target.

It’s an awful lot of energy, spent convincing women they are worthless, and should act like it and accept that. If we’re worthless, then what does it matter if we accept it or not?

Why, it’s like they’re lying, and we matter after all, and people are terrified we’re going to realise it.

Men who are threatened by women who are confident in their own identity are taught as boys to instill doubt in defense of their own ego.

That’s how you weed out the weaklings. When they say shit like “Oh you think you’re so [this or that]” simply because you exist.

YES, thank you. Could not have come at a more opportune time.

Storytime, assholes: The fact that we revel in our identities as smart, confident, self-assured women does not mean we’re attempting to upstage you, or make you feel stupid, or otherwise pander to your whims. In fact, we literally don’t give one fuck about your myopic little opinions. This is not about you. So cut the narcissism and the shaming and suck it the fuck up.

Amy Poehler was new to SNL and we were all crowded into the seventeenth-floor writers’ room, waiting for the Wednesday read-through to start. There were always a lot of noisy ‘comedy bits’ going on in that room. Amy was in the middle of some such nonsense with Seth Meyers across the table, and she did something vulgar as a joke. I can’t remember what it was exactly, except it was dirty and loud and ‘unladylike.’

Jimmy Fallon, who was arguably the star of the show at the time, turned to her and in a faux-squeamish voice said: ‘Stop that! It’s not cute! I don’t like it.’

Amy dropped what she was doing, went black in the eyes for a second, and wheeled around on him. ‘I don’t fucking care if you like it.’ Jimmy was visibly startled. Amy went right back to enjoying her ridiculous bit.

for our class we were all asked to choose one person/topic about which to research/give a 10-minute presentation. i chose “Phillip K. Dick,” since the professors mentioned that he tinkered a lot with history and the future—basically, alternate universes? and i love love love love AUs that mess with the timeline like that!

and here’s a line from his wikipedia page:

I want to write about people I love, and put them into a fictional world spun out of my own mind, not the world we actually have, because the world we actually have does not meet my standards,” Dick wrote of these stories. “In my writing I even question the universe; I wonder out loud if it is real, and I wonder out loud if all of us are real.”

SCREAMS THIS IS EXACTLY HOW I FEEL ABOUT FANFIC AND LIT AND WRITING AND THE FUCKING UNIVERSE IN GENERAL I CAN’T WAIT TO READ HIS STUFF AAAAAHHHHHHH

Yeah, Robert Pattinson really did give me his electronic cigarette at the Beyonce concert tonight. When I asked him for a lighter, he thought I was fucking with him. Honestly though, I assumed it was a one hitter until he showed me how to use the damn thing. Bizarre little moment, and of course, he’s a total sweetie.

maybe it’s the gold strip, maybe it’s the serif lettering, or maybe it’s the crazy nails—but this picture fucking exudes class
