sometimes I think about how I have followers that never reblog or like anything I post/reblog and I wonder what they’re doing here.
but then I wonder if I am that follower for someone else’s blog. like, i see their stuff and i take it in, but I just don’t reblog or like their things.
A lot of people, since watching the trailer for The Fault in Our Stars, have suddenly started realizing that Augustus’ dialogue is unnatural and awkward and I saw that post that said that he seems like a douchebag when you hear his lines out loud.
I just always felt like that was the entire point.
Dear internet, this is how you gently and thoughtfully change people’s minds. No shaming, no yelling, just a nice nudge to, “Aha!”
I will aspire to use classy same tone next time I try to educate someone about something!
or maybe we could focus more on how felicia responded correctly to being called out instead of making sure oppressed people are polite enough when they’re calling people out on their bigotry
seriously, most people start out with gentle nudges. it’s when the people who are being nudged react as if you just ran over their fucking cat that leads to people getting fed up with being nice. I honestly am tired of this fucking dialogue where someone says “well if you were just nice…” You think they didn’t already try that????
Yeah. The person didn’t have to be nice. What’s great is how Felicia reacts. She accepts she was wrong and that’s it. No excuses or anything.
