“never cut towards yourself” what if i’m in every direction
its particularly insidious how the beauty industry has repackaged their products as being like, about self care and empowerment and loving your body. like YES girl! you are loving yourself by taking an hour and a half every day to shave your entire body, do a 12 step ‘skincare’ routine to make your face look as smooth as a doll’s, and then covering it in makeup until you look indistinguishable from what is currently trendy and conventionally attractive! the reason you feel ugly and disgusting when you dont do that isnt because youre brutally conditioned to hate your face, its just bc you arent loving yourself by spending a thousand dollars a month on beauty products! dont think too hard about why men dont have to do this
at my job we have to go through a training program that teaches us the library of congress classification system, and when i was first being trained my boss started to boot it up and she gave me a really anxious and guilty look and said “listen, i’m really sorry in advance, there’s nothing i can do about this, just…. just try to get through it” and i was like lol what’s she talking about and then the program loaded and i was greeted with a deliriously funny-looking photoshopped wizard with glowing eyes pointing at some intro message like “AH YES, JUST AS THE PROPHECY FORETOLD… APPRENTICE, YOU COME AT A TIME OF MOST DIRE NEED… YOU MUST LEARN OUR WAYS” and my boss just looked at me helplessly and was like “i’m so sorry. it’s like two hours long.”
thankfully it wasn’t an elaborate fever dream and i have found screenshots

biggest trick resident evil 1 pulled was acting like jill would have more inventory space than chris “pockets” redfield
seeing fanart of breaking bad characters hanging out is funny and i love it but it’s also insane in retrospect because i can’t think of any piece of media where every character hates each other so fucking much. like nobody in that show likes each other at all
breaking bad show:
walter white ruins everyone’s life around him in the most evil ways possible for basically no reason other than personal gain and dies a sad miserable lonely death and nobody mourns

also while i’m ranting about gender i always see debate about whether girls are rewarded for being tomboys or not and it’s like. actually girls are rewarded for mirroring whatever the situation demands of them. girls can’t be too prissy and refuse to play in the creek, but girls also can’t show up to girly events covered in mud. girls can’t have makeup art as a hobby or else they’re superficial, but if they never wear makeup they’re a slob and dumpy, etc. it’s not that girls are universally rewarded or punished for being tomboys, they’re rewarded for bending over backwards to always be exactly right for any given situation and punished for breaking those boundaries. so yes a classically pretty girl who cleans up nice is rewarded when she can ALSO be a tomboy. but a girl who is a tomboy all the time is definitely punished for never being able to achieve that prerequisite feminine side. this debate is over now thanks
this is so true. I was more of a tomboy and was made fun of for never wearing makeup. I started wearing make up because I wanted to and then I got made fun of for wearing make up. You do you. Girls will always be under scrutiny.
genuinely one of my favourite details about Bram Stokers Dracula that isn’t really transferred to the pop culture is that vampires have irridescent eyes, they appear brown at a glance, however when light is reflected on them they seem to go red!
another thing that pop culture latched onto is this idea that you might use a wreath of garlic bulbs to ward off a vampire, however, in the book there is a popular use of garlic blossoms rather than the bulbs. i think these are a lot prettier and way more versatile for stylisation! you could have a garlic flower crown.
also like the cowboy part can we please stop omitting the fact that there is a real ass cowboy in Bram Stokers Dracula and hes from real ass Texas and he has a fucking gun and he tries to fucking shoot Dracula
Futhermore: “tumblr” as you experience it is defined entirely by whom you’re following. If you think tumblr doesn’t focus enough on recovery or female artists or Jason Momoa, follow some recovery/female artists/Jason Momoa blogs, and tumblr will change.
THIS. People are always going on about “tumblr is so toxic” like there’s a singular tumblr experience and we’re all helpless to escape it. UNFOLLOW PEOPLE. If someone’s putting bullshit on your dash, just unfollow them. Follow new people. It really is that simple. Tumblr is what you make it.
