I'm a lean mean learnin' machine who loves many things, such as: reading, writing, lifting weights, cycling, cooking, eating well (for the body and the soul), Pokemon, anime, and a variety of TV shows (Once Upon a Time, It's Always Sunny, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Buffy, Supernatural, Seinfeld, Parks and Rec, and more). Feel like I can never some up everything I'm into because my interests are very varied. Blogging about stuff I like is relaxing - Yay Tumblr!
It’s like when someone says, ‘How are you?’ Do you say, ‘Well, my head hurts and I’m lonely and depressed and I’m worried about everything and the world is collapsing and full of evil’? Or do you say, ‘I’m fine’?

Alex Graves, or LITERALLY WORD FOR WORD SOMETHING THAT AN ACTUAL RAPIST HAS SAID AND WOULD SAY BECAUSE THIS IS THE DEFINITION OF RAPE CULTURE, THIS MALE GAZE BULLSHIT THAT SAYS “I KNOW WHAT CONSENT MEANS BECAUSE I HAVE THE POWER TO DECIDE.” ALEX GRAVES HAD CONTROL OVER THIS SCENE AND BECAUSE HE SAID CERSEI SAYING NO AND LOOKING TERRIFIED IS CONSENT, IT OBVIOUSLY IS, RIGHT??? BECAUSE HE HAS THE CONTROL THAT CERSEI OR LENA OR ANY OTHER WOMAN DOESN’T, IT’S ONLY HIS VIEW THAT COUNTS, AND THE AUDIENCE AS A WHOLE BETTER LEARN TO LIVE WITH THAT BECAUSE THIS IS HBO AFTER ALL THIS IS SHOCK VALUE CENTRAL. WHO CARES THAT THE CLEAR CUT DEFINITION OF RAPE IS WHEN A PERSON SAYS NO, BECAUSE ALEX GRAVES AND THE WHOLE PATRIARCHAL STRUCTURE THAT COMES WITH HIM SAYS THAT SHE ACTUALLY WANTS IT, NO MATTER WHAT SHE SAYS. IT DOESN’T MATTER THAT PEOPLE LIKE HIM ARE USING DISTORTED AND INCORRECT VIEWS OF CONSENT, COUPLED WITH THE LANGUAGE OF OPPRESSION IN ORDER TO DISCOUNT VIEWERS REACTIONS AND ACTUAL LIVED EXPERIENCE IN THE FACE OF TRIGGERING FOOTAGE. ALL THAT MATTERS IS THAT IT GETS RATINGS RIGHT?? FUCK THIS MAN. FUCK THIS FUCK THIS FUCK THIS FUCK THIS FUCK THIS

Anxiety is not rude. Depression is not selfish. Schizophrenia is not wrong. Eating disorders are not a choice. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is not crazy. Mental illness isn’t self-centred, anymore than cancer is self-centred. It’s a medical illness.
