IT IS GETTING BETTER
When I first read about this woman’s plan I thought it was a strong idea but I was worried that it was a little bit much for one person, no matter how dedicated, to keep it up for too long, especially since she has, you know, college to commit to. I never thought about how, if other people helped her carry her burden, I never thought about how much it would look like pallbearers with a coffin. Which is simply one of the strongest visual symbols one can use to disturb people in the western world.

I have phases where I am so obsessed with kdramas that I give up reading for days at a time because I have to plow through 20 episodes as soon as I can so I can admire gentlemen like Choi Jin Hyuk.
It can be difficult, especially for younger generations, to remember that, before she was a celebrity, Joan Rivers was one of the first major female comedians in America, at a time when people really did assume that women weren’t funny and couldn’t tell jokes. But Rivers did.
Johnny Carson served as a “mentor” for Rivers, giving her a big break and establishing her as the permanent guest host for The Tonight Show in 1983. When she left for her own late-night show, Carson shunned her publicly, and she had her moment of being down, a showbiz pariah. But she kept going. She would keep going for the rest of her life, and she would have comebacks galore, embodying a certain tenacity in Hollywood that was aggressively unpretty but still somewhat admirable in its own, uniquely American way.
What Rivers had were jokes. So many jokes. Her first topic of comedy was herself, and how she functioned in the world, as a woman railing against the expectations of the times.
well he really should have worn more protective clothing if he didn’t want that to happen
sounds to me like he was asking for it
Are we really sure he was actually shot and decapitated? Idk, sounds like something he would’ve made up. Guys make false decapitation accusations all the time, you know.
If he didn’t want to be decapitated, he shouldn’t have worn a shirt that showed off his neck
If it’s a legitimate decapitation, the male body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down
Feeling so negative today, like very useless and also really profoundly ugly, you know?? Like fixating on minute details and blowing them way out of proportion. Like “ugh what’s wrong with my wrists?! Why are they so thick and like sloped downwards?! WHO COULD LOVE SUCH A HIDEOUS MONSTER”
Rises slowly from the crowd, hands raised, tears glistening in her eyes as she shouts, “I DO I LOVE THAT MONSTER AND IF YOU ARE A MONSTER SO ARE WE ALL”
Wow. This is all amazing. But the stealth amazing is that first line.
