Ahh, the joys of childbirth.
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Miss America Pageant
Trust me, watch this segment. It’s fantastic, not just for the humour, but for the excellent investigative journalism that they put into it too.
Dear pan and ace people,
Fckh8 have said they’re going to bring out products for pan and ace people in light of this summer’s giant fuckup.
PLEASE DON’T BUY THEM.
FCKH8 have a long history of being a horrible organisation, focussed solely on cis gays and lesbians (and maybe bisexuals sometimes too). Check out http://stopfckh8.tumblr.com for info on lots of the shit they’ve done.
They aren’t creating these products because they suddenly care about pan and ace people. They’ve just seen that there’s a market for this stuff, and what FCKH8 cares about isn’t LGBTQ+ people, it’s money.
Please don’t fund this horrible, for-profit company. They don’t truly care about LGBTQ+ people, and they don’t deserve our support.
My hair’s only just past my shoulders, and it already seems too long and boring. I want to get my money’s worth out of the balayage (and don’t want a tiny bit of blonde left on just the tips), though, so I’ll leave it a bit longer until I get it lopped off again, but I’m already itching to. I don’t know how I ever let it grow to hip-length. I’ve well and truly joined the bob club.
I do kind of miss my mane though. It looked hella majestic and shiny.
(I look about 12, and my eyes look vaguely murderous, but you get the point.)
People shared iterations of that story well over a million times, because it serves that child right for being so…child-like.
Sounds like you need to bail and dive head first into the industry. Find the people working in Australia in our industry and hassle them for volunteer work, internships, anything. Take their kids hostage if you have to.
It sure does! Now that the feeling of being an idealistic fool has passed, I’m more determined than ever to push harder, work harder, and succeed, to prove that I can make something of myself, on my own terms, if I put my mind to it.
