we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.




Obvious, but: this is especially poignant because they weren’t on speaking terms at the time. I mean John prettied himself up and had been on his way back to Sherlock when he was abducted, but I don’t think Sherlock knew about that. The last words John said to him before this moment appear to have been “Fuck off.” And Sherlock accepted that.

You may not want me in your life anymore, John Watson, but there’s no way I’m going to let you die.

how could you do this to me

So last week a police officer came to speak to my driver’s education class to talk about driving habits and such. During his presentation, he showed us a series of clips that went on for about twenty minutes. Each clip was a series of car wrecks, followed by the deaths of the people involved. It was extremely graphic and some of the clips were deeply disturbing. One of them actually showed an infant being projected through the dashboard. I was extremely angry after the video was over because the officer had given absolutely no warning to about the video being so graphic and disturbing. It could have very easily triggered to anyone with a mental illness or disorder. While I was watching, it caused me to have suicidal thoughts, and I don’t even have depression, anxiety, or any other mental illness. I completely understand that in those kinds of classes they use fear tactics to get the message across, but I think people need to be more aware of how videos and images such as that could effect the viewers.
