"You know how advice is - you only want it if it agrees with what you wanted to do anyways."

John Steinbeck, The Winter of Our Discontent

"I’m bleeding, I’m not just making conversation."

Richard Siken, excerpt from “Wishbone” 

"I am hands

and face

and feet

and things inside of me 
that I can’t see."

Laura Riding, “Forgotten Girlhood”

Anonymous: Hi, I'm sorry I really need to know this. Do you know at which part of the movie "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" did the quote "maybe we met at the wrong time, that's what I tell myself anyway...." appears?

Sorry but I don’t know the specific minute. Does anyone know?

aquariusagehippy: So you honestly think men aren't raised to think rape is a bad thing?

There are men who believe that drunk consent or “not saying no” or generally not getting consent don’t constitute rape and therefore aren’t bad, so yes I believe that men are raised in a culture in which it isn’t considered bad. Men might be raised to recoil at the word “rape” and say “I’d never do that” but they’re not raised to know the definition of rape.
