There Is Something On This Earth Worth Living For

Paralyzing Stupidity

9,156 notes

Beauty privilege is very real. None of us are imagining it, and if we aren’t born genetic lottery winners, our only option is to compensate with style, grace, and charm. Of course, none of that shit comes cheap. That’s kind of the whole point. It’s all meant to be aspirational and exclusionary. We’re supposed to feel depressed by our skin, agitated by our bodies, and anxious about our invisibility. That’s the insidious subtlety of social control. The worst part is that we know in our rational minds that it’s all bullshit, and yet we’re still plagued with self-loathing when we can’t live up to unattainable beauty standards. No matter how much self-acceptance we achieve, we can still look in the mirror and instantly catalog all the things about ourselves that we don’t think measure up. It’s maddening. It makes us feel like hypocrites even though it’s not our hypocrisy.

(I love this. There’s nothing that makes me happier as a writer than finding my work quoted and reblogged all over tumblr.)

Less love triangles, more polyamorous relationships and threesomes. 

Filed under especially when it's two men competing to have the heart of a woman where she's just the passive recipent of their affections and the only decision she makes through the entire story is deciding the guy she wants the one who paid the bigger price asserting in a very misguiding way that love can be somehow bought did she really choose him though? or did the plot decide it for her? in such scenarios the woman is a bundle of reactions never actions she's an invisible thread that carries the burden of two dudes fighting over it and only appears at the end to be cut never whole never was of any importance and the same things with two women fighting over a man but the difference is at the end where he gets to decide the woman for him but one of the two dudes decides the woman for the other have her she's yours my stuff

Mito Uzumaki. The White Chrisantemum
Inspired by ancient japanese verse from ‘Wakan Roeishu - 和漢朗詠集’, an anthology of Chinese and Japanese poems compiled by Fujiwara no Kintō: “Autumn tempests have devastated the orchids in the garden of the Imperial Palace.
One can see there only
the white chrysanthemums.” (My credits to pikacheeka for help in translation) This imperial flower is a symbol of nobility, joy and longevity. But a white chrisantemum is used for funerals and graves. Lady Mito survives her husband, her family, all her Land of Whirlpools. She lived with the memories… Paper, watercolour, acrilic, 46x33 cm.
Dedicated to Doctor Queenie, the sunshine of fandom.

"We’re born with infinite possibilities, only to give up on one after another. To choose one thing is to give up on another. That’s inevitable. But what can you do? That’s what it is to live." - The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness (2014)
