- Abusers can do nice things for people they are not abusing.
- Abusers can do nice things for people that they are abusing.
- Abusers can otherwise seem like nice, caring, supportive people when they are not actively abusing someone.
- It does not mean they’re not fucking abusers.
I hate it here.
I hate the hypocrisy.
I hate how I can be straddled with so many rules while someone else can be treated like a saint.
I hate that I’m expected to follow along like I’m not hurt by anything, but if someone else’s feelings are hurt, it’s the end of the world.
I hate that living here makes me feel less of a human being.
I hate that for last four years I’ve felt neglected, abused, and mistreated and felt like I had to endure this.
I hate it here.
I hate how my standing up for myself suddenly means I’m the bad person in their eyes.
I hate their way of thinking.
I hate their blindness.
I hate how I want to write a book about the last four years of my life and call it "4 Years a Nightmare" just to get back at them.
I hate what they’ve made me become to survive.
And I noticed something…
so this is the first time we see the king of Atlantis, right?
Then he says this while his wife is drawn into the heart of Atlantis:
Notice how he’s not looking away. The next time we see the king, he is blind.
DOES THIS MEAN HE LOOKED INTO THE HEART OF ATLANTIS, RISKED LOSING HIS SIGHT, JUST SO HE COULD SEE HIS WIFE ONE LAST TIME??????
JUST FUCKING STOP RIGHT THERE
CANT STOP WONT STOP
I actually caught that the first time I watched it. I always thought that was why he was blind. :(
Being told I need to analyze my emotions, my reactions to situations, and learn to handle it better without looking into medicine to help alleviate these darker thoughts, these moments where my eyes water and I’m struggling to talk, is like stabbing me in the chest with the knife I imagine using before going to sleep every night hoping I don’t have anymore dreams and that tomorrow is better than the last. Telling me that I need to be mentally stronger and listen to Stephen Fucking Covey’s advice is just one more piece of evidence that you don’t listen to me, you don’t care, and that you can’t empathize with me at all despite your remarks that you “understand” where I’m coming from. That you sympathize with what I’m going through even though you’ve self admittedly proclaimed you don’t understand how people can get so worked up that they’re angry and violent over something. Like you lack that piece of Humanity for some reason and can’t relate on a base level to that. And how you claim because I was raised in a household where there was violence that my reaction to being so overly angry about something that I want to hurt or break something is a learned response since you don’t have that impulse because you grew up in a household of non-violence.
I know I’m depressed. Life hasn’t been the nicest companion lately, so my friend spontaneously made this, shipped it to me, and well, holy hell, it’s gorgeous. Just look at it.
Surprises like this are what makes the world seem a little less gray and makes everything seem a little more bearable. I’m looking forward to spreading this out on my bed after I move. My cat is staying here, and since she has no grace and could ruin it by snagging it with her claws, it has been staying on my chair against my back.
So I know that there’s someone out there who supports me in this struggle. So I know there are people out there who care and would miss me. So I have hope…

Some examples of how “men’s rights activists” are threatening and intimidating feminists. There is absolutely no justification for this kind of behavior, and I urge all anti-feminist men (and anti-feminist others) to at the very least not stoop to the level of threatening atrocities or publishing someone’s personal information. I may not agree with your points of contention when it comes to the feminist movement, but that will never cause me to harm you or your family. AVFM and similar MRA groups need to be stopped, for the safety of society as a whole.
