Quiet Confessions of an Awkward Girl's Mind

Ask me anything   Submit  
Simplicity at its finest

My name is Bridgid.
20 years old.
I am awkward.
I play the viola.
Music is my life.

And that is all.

what’s up with America leaving the u out of things

like they leave u out of colour

and they leave u out of favourite

and unless you’re a rich white cishet man they’ll try to leave u out of every political decision

omg.

SIGNAL BOOST THIS NEWS! Seriously, how come this isn’t all over tumblr? Angelina Jolie presided over the largest ever global anti-rape summit. She is using her celebrity for good. She is addressing rape in wartime and in conflict zones, which is where it is perpetuated on the most massive scale and in which context always has been used as a weapon.

Feminists of tumblr should get behind this woman. Let’s stop the perpetual erasure and trivialization of women in the media through their sexualization and start looking at the work that they do. Her acts here are easily in danger of being eclipsed by her image in the tabloids which is more concerned with her relationship to Brad Pitt and the fact that she is a sex symbol than the important feminist work that she is performing RIGHT NOW. 

I am such a fan of this lady… and she does not deserve to be trivialized for being a woman, a sex symbol, and a celebrity. Here, she is working for social justice for women all over the world. She’s doing what’s right.

That Johannes Brahms’s beard was a psychological disguise has always been admitted, masking Johannes’s inveterate shyness, self-pitying morbidity, and perennial sexual frustrations. But it’s not until now, and findings released in a new collection of essays (The Beard in Crisis: Masculinity, Subjectivity, and the Hirsute Performativity of Gender in 19th Century Central Europe – A Critical Reader (University of Bart College, Indiana), that the astonishing truth has come to light. Under one of the floorboards in Brahms’s bachelor pad in Vienna, a stash of fake beards in various stages of greyness has been discovered. This - at last! - explains why there are no photos or images of Brahms in between clean-shaven late-pubescence and full-on beardy-weirdy fulsomeness. What was he hiding? Something even more remarkable: a collection of hosiery, corsetry, and undergarmentry that correspond roughly to Brahms’s rotundity suggest that his performance of gender went beyond merely hiding behind a beard. Those otherwise inexplicable comments from Brahms’s favourite courtesans in Vienna’s cafés - “Johannes was one of us!”, Elisabeth Schwanenberg said after his death - now begin to make sense… [x]
OH MY GOD
