This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy. 

Yup.

So this.

I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.

Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.

One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.

There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.

I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.

There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.

And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.

It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.

16 years ago… September 30,1998, Pop Superstar (and now named the Queen of Pop) Britney Spears released her first ever single, …Baby One More Time.

on November 1998, alongside the video, the single propelled to #1 in Billboard Hot 100. Simultaneously, it started climbing to the top spot in every music chart worldwide. Considering this was the first ever single Britney Spears has released, the single garnered a world record for being a debut single by a new artist to have achieved #1 around the world. Not even a single country that this song peaked at #2, it dominated the top spot in every country. 

Moreover, she has achieved this feat with only PHYSICAL SALES. there wasnt anything such as itunes, and digital downloads that time! Literally, no one will be able to reach the success, the timeless hit “…Baby One More Time” has achieved.
16 years in the business and still relevant (having 6 #1 albums, selling more than 100 million albums, breaking records, selling out tours, winning awards including a Grammy Award and many more achievements). Britney Spears’ entire career is proof why she is recognized as a living Pop Legend.

This suggests that Nicki Minaj also wrote little bits and pieces of “Baby Got Back.” Which would be impressive… except it’s a lie. LIES NICKI MINAJ.

tumblr user literarygingerfox deadass doesn’t know what sampling is smh

I do. I’m also aware that she said every word she spits is hers. I’ve chosen to take her literally. Which makes her wrong.

tumblr user literarygingerfox thinks that Nicki Minaj playing a recording of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s actual voice in her song is the same thing as Nicki Minaj spitting her own verses. tumblr user literarygingerfox deadass doesn’t know what sampling is.

moment of silence for tumblr user literarygingerfox …

“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her.  She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.  
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly.  “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.” 
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”

this is why performance art is important


So every single person who told me ‘ignore them they’ll go away’ and ‘you can’t let them know they bothered you’ and ‘They’ll stop if they don’t see you react’ and all that bull shit, my entire school career, I want you to look good and hard at this.
I want you to think about what you said.
What you keep saying.
What you are telling your children.
You are making them powerless.

that last comment. actually crying.

Sam Pepper - The Real “Reveal” (Explicit Content)

I can back that this story is true… I met Sam Pepper over a year ago on Santa Monica Blvd in Hollywood. I had no idea who he was until my friend that I was with at the time told me. Apparently he was really famous on YouTube and I was never really into keeping up to date with YouTubers. He came over to me, sat next to me without saying anything and texted himself on my phone so that I had his number. He left and started texting me, telling me to come over to his place. He did it multiple times. I said no. Naturally, I posted about what happened on here because I thought it was funny that this “famous” YouTube “star” was hitting on me and somehow, he found the post. (It’s deleted now) But he texted me furious that I said something about it and held it against me. He tried making me feel like I owed him for it and that I now HAD to come over. I didn’t go. He tried hitting me up again. I didn’t reply. If I did end up going, I’m sure these events in this video would have happened to me too… And it makes me SICK to hear that this had to happen to someone. And I’m sure there are others. But I know for a fact that this girl is telling the truth. The number she posted on her account (@anonsurvior111) matches up to the one I have saved in my phone and it sounds like he’s had this plan with many girls before. But this guy is still out there. He’s still harassing girls PUBLICLY in his videos. And we can’t let this bullshit happen anymore. No one deserves to feel what this girl has experienced. People need to know about this and Sam Pepper needs to be put in his rightful place. Spread the word.
