That’s fucked up. That’s real fucked up. That’s some ice spider shit and I do not approve.
That is the sickest shit ever
i just imagined a tiny little ice-spider on the mirror singing ‘let it go’ as he builds his little icy webby fortress.

Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak, on the question “Have any readers ever asked questions that shocked you?”
Read that again. Read it again, and again, and again. Over and over guys have asked her why Melinda was so upset about being raped. This is a girl who went to a party with friends. She was thirteen. She had a drink, because everyone else was. And a senior held her down and raped her while she was too drunk to get away.
And guys don’t understand why she was upset.
Read that again and then come back and tell me again why I should just shut up and take a joke when a comedian blows off rape as a big deal, or women’s bodies are casually treated as commodities in media. Remind me why I shouldn’t care about the very real harm that society’s treatment of women and sexual assault does.
Too many people seem to think that this (and all other problematic romantic tropes let’s be honest) are solely found in YA novels for girls (because all books for young girls are so problematic nowadays right?) when actually they’re found in practically all forms of media. This trope is everywhere we look. It’s in practically every book for adults and children ever written. IT IS NOT A YA PROBLEM and targeting it in YA but ignoring it when it comes up in any other book/tv show/movie/romanticised news piece is the real problem here. How many teenagers are embarrassed to be seen reading YA now? How many are embarrassed to be seen reading at all? The only thing throwaway statements like this actually achieve is more blind hatred toward a genre aimed at two groups of people who feel enough hate directed towards them already: teenagers, and girls.
Showing off a few of my earrings, pardon me.
Crap pictures because laptop webcam. They won’t stop moving, so it’s hard to see them. They’re spikes on the ends of chains :D
Santa Barbara’s Fairy Tale Cottage Listed for $1.7 million.
I think we’ll take it. Where can I sign?
Holy shit. The house down the street is listed for almost this much and it’s not a fairy tale cottage. I don’t even understand property values. I can’t possibly scream enough to express how much I want to live here.
