“The female doesn’t want a rich man or a handsome man or even a poet, she wants a man who understands her eyes if she gets sad, and points to his chest and say : “Here is your home country.””—Nizar Qabbani
i wish there wasn’t a stigma about doing things alone. you can’t go out to eat alone, you can’t see a movie alone, basically anything fun, you’re looked down on for doing alone and it’s so stupid you shouldn’t need other people to validate your decisions
i say fuck that stigma. i do things alone all the time and i am happiest that way. going to eat alone is kick-ass - you can eat where you want and what you want and no one cares. movies are best alone - you can sit where you want. you can travel alone and go to concerts alone and do whatever you want alone. who cares what other people think? you literally do not need them.
“In the original pilot for Bob’s Burgers, Mintz’s character was a teenage boy. That fundamental difference aside, Daniel Belcher and Tina Belcher are the same character—but looking back, that choice had enormous implications for the show, because a TV audience has never seen a girl growing up like this. She’s nothing like an archetypal teen, but she’s also unmistakably one. She daydreams about kissing her crushes—and also about touching the butts of all the cute boys in her class. She fantasizes about being a prettier, bolder version of herself, who talks politics with adults and is an object of affection among the guys at Wagstaff School. Her efforts in this direction lead her to hide in the dairy section of a grocery store in season three’s “Lindapendent Woman,” waiting for a handsome boy to stop by. In season four’s “Turkey In A Can,” she shows up to Thanksgiving dinner wearing baggy pantyhose and too-big high heels. Puberty and dating have a typical arc on shows about teenage girls, but Tina’s arc on Bob’s Burgers is something else entirely. It’s gross. It’s messy. It occasionally encourages threesomes. And it’s hilarious, but the show is careful to never make Tina the butt of any jokes. (Tina touching butts, however, is okay.) If the viewer is laughing, it’s most likely with Tina—or at the very least, with the people who love her.”—
It’s happened. The Victoria’s Secret catalog is in your mailbox, there’s a definite increase in tanning bed commercials on the radio, and Target has traded out it’s scarves for bikinis. It’s time. Despite the layer of snow on the ground, you come to realization that your spring break/girls…
“Backstreet Boys make me want to scald my inner thighs with the hottest substance known to man: strawberry jam PopTarts. They make me want to spend months learning how to drive, then years of working hard, saving up all my money, so I can buy a Land Rover and run them all down. They are everything that is wrong with the world. They are destroying music.”—Rae Earl
i wish more people in america watched "my mad fat diary"
because then i’d have someone to talk to about how much i love the show and how everything hurts and nooooooooo
also i am not sure i have ever encountered a television character (or movie character or basically any character) who i feel so closely related to because of how she feels about herself and her relationship with finn and her friendships and and and.
