This is one of my favorite John Lennon songs.
At the 2:30 mark he says “I don’t believe in Beatles”, the music pauses, and he goes on to say “I just believe in me.”
The first time I heard it, it felt like a punch to the gut. How could he say that? How could he just disregard everything they were? The little pause after that lyric almost feels like a “fuck you” to all the Beatles fan. Like he’s proud of what he’s said.
My heart drops every time I hear that part of the song. It’s yet to lose it’s impact.
Rivaille just loves to scare Eren
it’s fucking adorable how Eren tries to act tough all the time and when he sees Levi he just tenses up like a nervous kitten
i’d be scared too if i was kicked in the face 18 motherfucking times by alternate universe napoleon goddammit
it does not matter how slow you go as long as you’re not in front of me

“I’ve been riding the pine a long time. But I’m in the game now, and I’m not on your side, or Michael’s. I’m on theirs.
i never have liked the “just girly things” series.
So, this is awesome.
So, there are a number of things wrong with this.
All right, you don’t like the “just girly things” series. That’s perfectly your right. However, the main thing that strikes me here is that, by comparing the posts to photographs of war tragedies, you are basically saying “how dare teenage girls be upset when all this horrible stuff is happening in the world/has happened in the past”. That’s not OK.
The wars were terrible. War is terrible. We all know this. But that doesn’t change the fact that falling out with friends is terrible. That feeling as though you’re all alone is terrible. No, this isn’t comparable with the horrors of war. Not at all.
So why are you comparing them?
The tragedies illustrated in this post are heartbreaking, but you should not be appropriating said tragedies in order to shame teenage girls and what you clearly see as their “silly” problems. Regardless of what you may think, the problems faced when you’re a teenager are serious. They can feel like the end of the world. Remembering the Holocaust isn’t going to magically make you feel better about your own situation, because it doesn’t work like that. All this photoset says to teenage girls is “shut the fuck up, girls, you don’t have real problems”. That’s invalidating and it’s really horrible behaviour.
Moving on to address the pictures that don’t rely on emotional manipulation and invalidation: are you honestly comparing a girl wanting some new jewelry to the abuse of people? Are you really associating a fun beach visit with a friend to storming the beaches at Normandy? What are you trying to say? That whenever a girl visits the beach, she should be thinking about D-Day? That she shouldn’t want jewelry because some people are bound in chains? That when she says “everything happens for a reason” in regards to her own life and her own experiences, she’s saying “hey, war’s OK!”? I fail to understand what you’re doing by associating these horrific pictures with innocent enjoyments from a girl’s teenage years, aside from continuing to say “how dare you be happy and enjoy things, when this has happened/is happening”.
According to this post, teenage girls aren’t allowed to be happy because there’s tragedy in the world, and they’re not allowed to be sad because there’s tragedy in the world. This post implies that their suffering isn’t real, that they’re silly and superficial, and that they should spend their lives thinking about all the horrors that have happened.
Newsflash: it’s perfectly possible to have your own emotional problems in your personal life and be capable of empathy for the tragedies that befall other people. Maybe you should think about this before shaming teenage girls for feeling things with graphic photographs of war and death.
reblogging for commentary. Stop shaming teenage girls just for being teenage girls.
WOW THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I JUST SAID ONLY IT’S EXPLAINED SO MUCH BETTER.
Reblogging this again for that A+ commentary!
this picture should have more then the amounts of notes it has, this shows us that not ever thing is “picture perfect” and that behind that smile and those eyes there is fear . So i beg you to please reblog this instead of a pair of shoes, someone smoking a blunt, and clothes … because this picture is literally worth 1,000 words
This is insanely powerful.
