Being best friends with someone doesn’t mean that you Skype twice a week at a specific time every time. It doesn’t mean that you text each other all the time, or call every Sunday night before you go to sleep. You don’t have to litter their Timelines or their Ask Boxes with inside jokes or half-hearted “I love you”s in an attempt to keep the relationship as strong as it used to be.
Because if you really are best friends, you shouldn’t have to do any of that stuff to still be best friends. And you shouldn’t be upset if your counterpart in this relationship doesn’t do those things - people have lives beyond one friendship, and real best friends realize and respect that. Being best friends shouldn’t be work. It shouldn’t be hard. You shouldn’t feel threatened that the relationship is going to break just because your contact is somewhat lacking.
Being best friends with someone means that even when you’re apart for months, or sometimes even years, and you don’t keep up constant contact, and you both get other friends, and interests, and your personalities change, you still come back together at some point and you act like nothing has changed. Because nothing has. You’re still best friends. And if you feel like you need to prove that to each other, then you obviously never were.
Can I just say.
This is about ALL friends.
Not just ‘best’ friends.
Also, I have so many best friends. There’s nothing that says you have to only have one.
That said, all this is true.
two things that have been bugging me:
looooads of posts from “allies” on national coming out day? what the fuck is that about?
also, what the fuck is up with non-queer people wearing “pride” clothes?
fuck fuckity fuck
You have opinions okay fine yes good.
But why is there so much hate coming FROM the queer community? It just makes me really sad. Hate does not solve hate. Love thy neighbour and stuff. I dunno. This kind of negativity against allies just seems totally and completely counterproductive. Above all, we’re all people here.
Vice presidential candidates Joe Biden and Paul Ryan caught on the Danville, Kentucky Kiss Cam to the horror of hardcore conservatives and delight of tumblr blogs everywhere.
Somehow I knew that Cate would bring up the kissing thing. #reasonsIloveCate
Beat the Whites with the Red Wedge - El Lissitzky
Created as a piece of suprematist, political propaganda, this piece of graphic design depicts the Reds ( communists & revolutionaries) beating the Whites (monarchs, conservatives, liberals, and socialists against the Bolshevik Revolution). A powerful message during the Russian Civil War.
Every time I see this, I become obnoxious, and feel the need to tell everyone that I once wrote an academic essay comparing and interpreting FF’s album cover art against their Russian avant garde counterparts. Apparently the essay was good, because it got me into Grad school.
And then I feel like a fucking weirdo. Fact.
That is interesting. Also, I like the picture.
sometimes I feel like a seal is just a neutral sea lion
