just so we’re clear:

  • getting called out for doing something shitty is not the same as “getting hate”
  • if someone is telling you that you did something shitty, they are not criticizing you as a person
  • messing up does not make you an irredeemably awful human being
  • but how you respond to criticism can be a pretty good indicator of your awfulness

I think it’s really important to note that if I take the time to call you out rather than just dismissing you as a piece of shit it means that I am giving you a chance to be a better person. You should take that chance instead of hurling abuse at me, or bursting into tears.

What gets scary is when your self-worth is tied up in what strangers think of you.

If you’re a guy who likes looking at pictures of naked girls but loses respect for a girl if she posts a naked picture of herself, you can get lost

Parker + love

Sophie: This life is not worth living without the people that make us want to tear down those walls; the thrill of vulnerability, the danger of opening your heart. It makes us feel alive.
Parker: I feel alive when I’m jumping off a building.
Sophie: Maybe that’s why they call it “Falling in love.”

I want [female characters] to be allowed to be weak and strong and happy and sad – human, basically. The fallacy in Hollywood is that if you’re making a ‘feminist’ story, the woman kicks ass and wins. That’s not feminist, that’s macho. A movie about a weak, vulnerable woman can be feminist if it shows a real person that we can empathize with.
