I went to bed at 2:30am and woke up, several hours later, to a cold house and drenched in sweat and freezing. I was still exhausted and bleary eyed when my mom finds me a few minutes later still freezing my butt off and reading on my laptop. Then she yells about her laundry, she went to bed at 11pm, didn’t get up until 7am, and gets upset and rude because I didn’t remember in my drowsy state to do her laundry. I have a job, I’m still trying to study 3 foreign languages, cope with being poor and having no future, and pretend I’m not emotionally unbalance or unwell, all along with doing this grown ass woman’s laundry. F*ck this I’mma go back to bed and pray that I wake up in Narnia.
Imagine you have a Rolex watch. Nice fancy Rolex, you bought it because you like the way it looks and you wanted to treat yourself. And then you get beaten and mugged and your Rolex is stolen. So you go to the police. Only, instead of investigating the crime, the police want to know why you were wearing a Rolex instead of a regular watch. Have you ever given a Rolex to anyone else? Is it possible you wanted to be mugged? Why didn’t you wear long sleeves to cover up the Rolex if you didn’t want to be mugged?
And then after that, everywhere you go, there are constant jokes about stealing your Rolex. People you don’t even know whistle at your Rolex and make jokes about cutting your hand off to get it. The media doesn’t help either; it portrays people who wear Rolexes as flamboyant assholes who secretly just want someone to come along and take that Rolex off their hands. When damn, all you wanted was to wear a nice watch without getting harassed for it. When you complain that you are starting to feel unsafe, people laugh you off and say that you are too uptight. Never mind you got violently attacked for the crime of wearing a friggin time piece.
Imagining all that? It sucks, doesn’t it.
Now imagine you could never take the Rolex off.”—The Wretched of the Earth: On Rape Culture (via exoticwild)
Sudden attack of feels over the fact that Sam eats salads and grilled chicken because he can (at least sometimes) see a life after hunting, a life where he grows old, so he’s going to take care of himself, while Dean eats burgers…
