30 years ago today, The Breakfast Club met for detention.
"Hey, you shouldn’t eat that. It’s not good for you."
I Was Trying To Be Funny But It Came Out as Really Mean: A 5-part documentary starring me.
I Was Trying To Be Loving And Supportive But I Probably Overstepped My Boundaries And Came Off as Creepy: a feature-length film with two sequels and a TV series adaption.
I Was Trying To Tell You I Relate To Your Difficult Situation But It Probably Sounded Like I Was Making It All About Me: a novel saga with several side book adaptions and a movie.
Okay guys, this is crap.
I’ll agree with the paranoia about pads and the uncomfortableness of tampons, but that’s it.
Why on god’s earth would pads and tampons be free? Pads/tampons and condoms are very different things. The “free condom” thing is an attempt to give people a way to have safe sex, which in turn leads to less STDs and less unwanted pregnancies. Men AND women have access to free condoms to practice safe sex. Nothing is free. People are paying for them…it’s just not you. Stop pretending like you’re entitled to free things just because you have no control over menstruating.
And expensive? Are you freaking kidding me? Like what kind of pads are you getting, gold-lined? You can get a pack of 22 pads at Walmart for 3 bucks. $3. That’s 36 dollars A YEAR. You spend more money on one tank of gas than you do in an entire year for feminine products. Even the most expensive pack of pads that I found was a pack of 54 pads for ten bucks. That would last you 2 months (you’d need around 25 per month), so you’d buy 6 packages for a grand total of $60 per year.And the most expensive tampons I found was a 2-pack of 36 tampons each at about $13, which would last you around 3 months, for a total of $52 a year. So don’t even with that “it’s so expensive” crap. I buy them too. They are not expensive.
And very few people actually seriously judge women if they’re on their periods, and if they do they’re actual sexist pigs. Most people recognize the statement for what it is, a joke (because most people are rational and can recognize a joke when they see one, unlike a lot of people on here) and get on with their lives. Women do, on average, become more emotional and have lower thresholds while we are on our periods. It’s our hormones, and we have no control over it. I have burst out crying because I hit my head on my car door, even though it didn’t even hurt, because I happened to be on my period and my emotions were all out of whack that day. I’ve become very frustrated and snapped at my friends when I’m on my period before. Naturally I apologize, and they understand, and we move on. Normally it’s not a problem. But sometimes it is. My judgement is not impaired in any way, shape, or form save that I am more emotionally charged during that time. And there are very few people that actually think that being on your period actually damages your brain function in some way. This is what’s called a strawman argument, and it’s stupid.
Also free bleeding is disgusting. Seriously.
he looks so pleased with himself and that makes me happy
It wasn’t just that I hadn’t been there for her. It was that she had been there for me. And it wasn’t just reading a diary that made me realize it. I knew it.
Going on the MMFD tags seriously irks me, and that’s because of Rinn shippers. Nothings scarier than a furious shipper not getting what they want… I get that people want two characters to get together when they’re oozing with chemistry etc. But Rae and Finn…? Really? Finn might love Rae or…
