"Don’t mistake my kindness for weakness. I’ll choke you with the same hand I fed you with."
"Don’t you dare
For someone else’s comfort -
Do not become small
For people who refuse to grow."
"We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same."
"I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone."
"I find that most people worth knowing are fucked up in some way or another."
I suggest all females watch this.
*i suggest all humans watch this.
THIS SHOULD BE REQUIRED WATCHING FOR ALL HUMANS
I’m a 17 year old white guy living in middle class America. I’ve never exactly been a supporter of feminism because that kind of thing has never really affected me personally. I don’t notice it and I don’t care about it. But in nine minutes this video has made what is truly a serious problem extremely apparent. Those “why I need feminism” posts or those slut-shaming or rape culture campaigns never convince me of anything. But this video actually did I think.
tl;dr This video kicks ass, just watch it.
Stop what you’re doing and watch this
I watched this with my mom. This is really great. I love this.
