This man is going to change the world. I truly believe that.

also, this should be mandatory reading for every body every single dayCollapse )

Despite the fact that this news should be able to cure any ailment I am kinda having a crap time at the moment. But I plan to get extremely drunk by myself tonight and forget all about that.

running in slow motion.
there are ghosts in her past, but all she ever wanted was a happy ending.
original. 239 words.
  • Yeah so I wrote something. Woo me!
  • I seem to be having an obsession with fashion icons and graphics lately. I can't help it, they're so fucking pretty!
  • My internet provider (iinet) has this annoying setup where my monthly download quota is distributed between "on-peak" and "off-peak" times. Normally this frustrates the hell out of me because I generally like to be tucked up in bed after 12 pm when the "off-peak" period starts. Not, however, when I have Fascism Essays of Doom to write. Consequently, as a result of my procrastination I downloaded a shitload of music last night, some of which I'm really loving on at the moment. And because I'm so nice, I thought I'd share a bit with you all :)

these ballarina wings.

it was a fantasy, like believing in santa claus or the tooth fairy. like believing that one day prince charming would arrive gallantly on your doorstep and, with a kiss, wake you from the confusion which was wrapped so seamlessly around the package that was growing up.

the past.

it always leaves an icky feeling in her stomach. cold and greasy, tinged with regret and guilt and betrayal and pain.

I hate how we apparently live in a society of "tolerance", a society where supposedly it's ok to be different, when really if you look closely nothing has changed.

There's no such thing as tolerance in our society. People are still ostracized for being black, white, Asian, homosexual, a single parent ... If anything intolerance has evolved. Now, not only are people persecuted for their race and sexual preference, they’re attacked for their taste in music, the way they do their hair and make-up and how they dress. Instead of celebrating peoples’ differences society condemns them and sticks them with labels such as “Goth” and “Emo” - terms that are meant to be derogatory and segregating.

As a bisexual teenager living in Australia I understand the improvements that have been made throughout the world over the years. In most parts of the world it is no longer illegal to be homosexual. Many places are now legalizing gay marriage and the rights of same sex couples to raise a child together. However, what I don’t see changing is the attitude. I know it may seem as though homosexuality is reasonably acceptable in today’s society, but from my experience it really isn’t. People may not balk at the sight of a same sex couple, many people even believe that they’re completely fine with the idea of homosexuality - until they find out that someone close to them is gay.
