You know, it’s funny, generally when men refer to their exes as “crazy” what I keep hearing is “she had emotions, and I did not like that.

I tried to explain punk to my mom yesterday but since I have never been involved in any kind of punk subculture I did a really bad job of it
I should have just sent her this turtle
Scott then told Zelda that, in addition to being a terrible ballerina, she was “a third rate writer.” Zelda told him that, “It seems to me that you are making rather a violent attack on a third-rate talent then,” and that she wanted a divorce.
Take a moment to clap for Zelda.
Scott proceeded to outline his divorce strategy in his journal. “Attack on all grounds. Play (suppress), novel (delay), pictures (suppress), character (showers), child (detach), schedule (disorient to cause trouble), no typing. Probable result – new breakdown.” So, Scott’s strategy was to gaslight her into having another nervous breakdown. Also, something about showers.
Wow. If I didn’t think F. Scott was a complete asshole before…

So you’re about to have sex with a woman you’re attracted to, you really want to have sex with her, but all you can think about is her getting pounded by tons and tons of dicks? That sounds like an entirely different issue.
Indeed, Zelda, who was ultimately diagnosed with schizophrenia and died at an insane asylum, spent most of her marriage struggling to define herself as an artist and her own person. Her husband copied liberally from her journals and letters for his novels. When she finally wrote an autobiographical novel of her marriage in 1932, “Save Me the Waltz,” he edited out several of the stories that he intended to use for his own, 1934’s “Tender Is the Night.
This makes me want to go back in time like Owen Wilson in Midnight in Paris, only I’d do it to PUNCH F. SCOTT FITZGERALD IN THE FACE.
Allie Brosh and Hyperbole and a Half are back after a year and a half of internet silence. That’s incredibly good news for people who like awesome things.
I point this out for two reasons:
- It contains one of the best evolutionary biology illustrations of all time (above), about how we are at the end of a long line of things that successfully avoided getting chewed to death.
- It is one of the greatest explorations and personal stories of depression and mental health that I have ever seen, and should really be read by every single damn person on Earth.
I know I’ve already reblogged the return of HaaH twice today, but this is a particularly good set. Also those tags sum up my general reaction to my own depression most days … why are our brains so easily turned against us?Yup. Allie’s commentariat on depression is always so spot on that often the realism of her cartoons reduces me to near-uncontrollable sobbing. Important read, but go in with caution.
But in 1925’s “The Great Gatsby,” Scott depicted a more dire view of flappers. Narrated by a man, the cautionary tale seems to warn against the wiles of The New Woman—the feminist ideal of an educated and sexually liberated woman that emerged in the 1900s. So instead of intelligent, independent women telling their own stories of rebelling and rejecting their mother’s values, you have male war buddies sharing how vapid, spoiled socialites carelessly wrecked their lives.
One in five women reports being sexually assaulted. For women of color, that number is much higher; one study says that over 50% of young black women are sexually assaulted. (One of your jokes: “I’m attracted to black women. I had sex with one once. The whole time I was fucking her, she kept using the n-word. Yeah, the whole time, she was yelling NO!”) On your Twitter, you warned people that they shouldn’t attend one particular set of yours if they’d recently had a miscarriage or been raped. So, like: Are you comfortable excluding that big a chunk of the population from your set? I always wonder this, about comedians who tell a lot of rape jokes. You presumably know that it happens. Do you know that it happens this often? Is it a realistic possibility, in your mind, that not just one but several of the women in your audience have experienced it?

anonymous asked: Yo, the fact that the role models of libertarianism were all white dudes profiting from slavery?
Yeah, it’s weird, it’s almost like that morally and intellectually bankrupt philosophy is just an extremely flimsy intellectual cover for preserving societies imbalances brought on by centuries of state sponsored injustice.
I know someone personally who also compared a higher minimum wage to a handout. This is a good sign of our times when a living wage is considered a “handout for doing nothing.” - zenodotus5
And minimum-wage workers are the hardest workers in America. I’ve worked minimum-wage jobs, and I’ve worked part-time jobs that pay barely above minimum wage. I’ve also worked well-paid desk jobs.
Compared to waiting tables and scrabbling at startups? White-collar jobs are a vacation. You’re not docked pay if you come in late. You take lunch whenever you want. You sit in front of a computer all day. Your legs don’t feel like cement pillars by the time you get home because you’ve been standing for so long. When you’re sick, you can take a day off without worrying about whether you’ll make rent. You can afford to take a vacation and relax for a few days. You can afford to visit your family at the holidays. You can afford to replace your car when it breaks down. This is paradise.
And there are fewer and fewer jobs like this in America, and more and more minimum-wage jobs that require physical labor and dealing with customers and not having benefits or health insurance, and the least - the VERY least - that we can do as a society is make sure that people who work those jobs, or two or three of those jobs, don’t have to struggle to pay for food and housing. Minimum-wage workers aren’t “doing nothing.” They’re achieving record-breaking corporate profits for their CEOs. They’re doing EVERYTHING.

Pentagon Study Finds 26,000 Military Sexual Assaults Last Year, Over 70 Sex Crimes Per Day
A shocking new report by the Pentagon has found that 70 sexual assaults may be taking place within the U.S. military every day. The report estimates there were 26,000 sex crimes committed in 2012, a jump of 37 percent since 2010. Most of the incidents were never reported. The findings were released two days after the head of the Air Force’s sexual assault prevention unit, Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinski, was arrested for sexual assault.
We air highlights from Tuesday’s Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on military sexual assault and speak with Anu Bhagwati, executive director and co-founder of Service Women’s Action Network. “The numbers are outrageous, and I think we’ve reached a tipping point,” Bhagwati says. “The American public is furious.”
Anuradha Bhagwati, executive director and co-founder of Service Women’s Action Network, or SWAN. A former captain and company commander, she served as a Marine officer from 1999-2004. Bhagwati testified in March at the first Senate hearing on military sexual violence in nearly 10 years.
This is the disgusting world we’ve created.
