Where everybody could wear whatever they want to work. Even restaurants and stores. What is the point of a uniform? As long as the person is helping me/waiting on me I don’t care what they are wearing. And if anyone dressed inappropriately then they could get written up or lose their job but it should just be based off a loose dress code like schools have like not too much skin exposed and no inappropriate words.
Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak, on the question “Have any readers ever asked questions that shocked you?”
Read that again. Read it again, and again, and again. Over and over guys have asked her why Melinda was so upset about being raped. This is a girl who went to a party with friends. She was thirteen. She had a drink, because everyone else was. And a senior held her down and raped her while she was too drunk to get away.
And guys don’t understand why she was upset.
Read that again and then come back and tell me again why I should just shut up and take a joke when a comedian blows off rape as a big deal, or women’s bodies are casually treated as commodities in media. Remind me why I shouldn’t care about the very real harm that society’s treatment of women and sexual assault does.
I have gotten one question repeatedly from young men. These are guys who liked the book, but they are honestly confused. They ask me why Melinda was so upset about being raped.
The first dozen times I heard this, I was horrified. But I heard it over and over again. I realized that many young men are not being taught the impact that sexual assault has on a woman. They are inundated by sexual imagery in the media, and often come to the (incorrect) conclusion that having sex is not a big deal. This, no doubt, is why the number of sexual assaults is so high.
OH MY FUCKING GOD
she hates friday just as much as we do
she is the robert pattinson of the music industry
REBECCA BLACK IS MY QUEEN.
THIS IS SO GOOD
But guys. Saturday isn’t any better. It’s the same shitty music. Just because she’s making fun of her own song doesn’t make her funny or cool…
In case you’re in need of motivation, have some from the Doctor.
You can do it!
Like I said, Elsa has 400,000 strands of hair, as opposed to Rapunzel’s 150,000, and as far as animation has come in the past few years, there are still some things that are trickier to animate. Trying to get the hair to pass over the model would’ve been a pain in the ass, and I’m not talking ‘a little nuisance’, but it would’ve required extra animators to work extremely hard to get it right. There are cheats that need to be used sometimes so that the Maya program will cooperate. Many other animation studios do things like this, but in this scene, Disney has done well to make sure it’s unnoticeable. Here we’re focused on Elsa’s facial expression as she’s singing, and with the way that she’s standing, it looks as if her braid could have just gone around her shoulder. If they would’ve tried to avoid this, the result would have been something like that bloopers video where Rapunzel’s hair freaks out and ends up wrapping around her body or shooting off into hundreds of different spots on the screen (you know the one)
now that’s all i notice! D:
