cuz my fb post about jared leto’s role in dallas buyers club being likened to blackface … yeah.
just … points being missed all over.
You know why women often say “nothing’s wrong” when something is definitely bothering them
It’s because men have been belittling, minimizing and mocking our emotions forever
And we are socialized to be as passive and undemanding and selfless as possible, and not to run any risk of bothering or angering a man lest he abandon or hurt us
It’s not passive aggression, it is fear
oh my god
it’s not passive aggression, it is fear
"no, it’s okay"
"i’m going to be fine"
you tell yourself these things so you can get from moment to moment, simply because you’re terrified of what’ll happen if you DON’T.
