Me to the person cutting my hair
Jared Leto has been winning multiple awards for playing the transgender character of Rayon in the film “Dallas Buyers Club.” The transgender community has then watched him throw them under the bus.
1. LETO: "It was the role of a lifetime," he said. "It was an incredible thing to represent this…
why are most transgender people so over sensitive? chill the fuck out and live your life the way you want to. and most importantly, stop trying to make other people stand up for you- do it yourself.
this post is this person standing up for themselves. which i guess bothers you, because you’d rather we all shut up so you can continue living your ignorant, oblivious life.
maybe we’re “over-sensitive” because shit like this results in unemployment, discrimination and and even violence against trans women. why do you think you know better than trans people do? did it ever occur to you that maybe, just maybe, we’re not “over-sensitive” but you’re just insensitive? that you don’t understand why these jokes and these actors do so much damage to trans women? the idea that trans women are men in dresses literally get trans women killed.
do you honestly think that trans people have some special quality that makes them over-sensitive? don’t you think it’s more likely that this society is cis-centric and caters to YOU and is built to exclude and marginalize and discriminate against us? did you ever think that maybe, just maybe, there’s a reason that almost every time you see a man in women’s clothes or a trans woman appear or be mentioned on tv it’s a joke? if you look at the statistics of violence against trans women, levels of unemployment, discriminatory laws, homelessness, and lower rates of pay, you’ll see these jokes and this bad representation has real world ramifications
so to you this might just be some “hysterical” or “oversensitive” people nitpicking about shit, but to others it’s their lives
Well there goes the rest of my life.
WE PRAY ALL NIGHT.

You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything."
I’ve posted this before but I’m posting it again because it’s just so important and really gets at the heart of why so much advice about procrastination, much of it targeted at people who have ADHD but are just considered “lazy,” fails. Before you can tell someone to “just do it already,” you need to think about the reasons they’re NOT doing it, like all the meanings they’ve attached to vague terms like “success” and “failure.”
That resonates too much. As I sit on tumblr at 1 in the morning, avoid studying for a test I have at noon today.
OK..so this is why I end up doing most of my stuff near the deadlines.
This explains so much about me, man.(via kyssthis16) ←

White privilege is being the #1 consumers of welfare, food stamps, general government aid, and illegal drugs, but STILL blaming POC for all of those things as well as incarcerating them at an exponentially higher rate.
