Hey you guys I’ll be making a youtube video discussing the “friendzone” and I’d like to include your opinions on the definition of it and your personal experiences. So if you’d like to put your two cents in just reply to this or reblog with what you have to say. Also if you wish to stay anonymous feel free to message me!
All opinions are welcome but don’t be ignorant please.

My freshman year of high school, this guy Blake asked me to go to homecoming with him. I wasn’t interested in him romantically (and I told him so) but I told him we could go as friends if he wanted, and he said yes. 

When I got there he presented me with a corsage and wouldn’t let me dance with anyone else. After homecoming he tried to ask me out and I turned him down, again telling him I was not interested in him romantically. 

A few months later, he found out that I had hooked up with another guy since turning him down. He cornered me and threatened to tell my parents about it, and I told him I didn’t know what he was talking about (I truly didn’t, he was being incredibly vague in an attempt to get me to admit something out of a guilt that I didn’t have). When he realized I wasn’t going to give him the submissive reaction he wanted, he let me go and walked back to our group of friends like nothing had just happened. 

After that, he literally told every single person that he knew as well as some people that I didn’t know that I was a stupid slut and told a story that I can only guess was based on what he imagined happened between me and this other person. Thankfully, the close friends that I had at the time didn’t abandon me, though many of my mutual acquaintances did. He also told this story to our drama teacher, who then became really hostile towards me and reluctantly cast me in the next school play—as a ditzy, promiscuous 2-dimensional character. Eventually, he switched schools and people moved on to different rumors and I left high school relatively unscathed. 

I am eternally grateful that I didn’t end up dead because of this guy’s obsessive entitlement. When I hear my male friends make jokes about getting friendzoned, there is a part of me that makes a note to never, ever let my guard down around that person. It’s not me being paranoid. This shit happens, and it happens way too often.

#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.

This is why honey is not vegan.

The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.

literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey

Do not test Reza Aslan.

We must train and retain our ability to listen and process critically.

Nobody told me that @RezaAslan knew how to read.

(Not read as in books, but read as in reveal your scalp to the world.)

Because homie read Bill Maher, Don Lemon, Alisyn Camerota, Benjamin Netanyahu, and just about everyone else for points.

Hair all over the damn floor like it was a barbershop and nobody had a broom.

He got ALL his kee-kee’s in.

Watch.

Former Marine turned photographer Joel Parés’ series Judging America used real people dressed as stereotypes to remind us to not judge a person based on their tattoos, clothing, ethnicity, profession, or sexual orientation, but on their merits.
