Okay you know what I was just gonna reblog this and say nothing but you know what, I’m pissed off and you wanna know why?
Ted is a Nice Guy. I don’t mean a nice man, no. I mean the motherfucking “Nice Guy” who moans and complains about how women just won’t flock to him and be exactly who he expects of them. He knew from the beginning Robin wanted to focus on her career before marriage. He knew from the beginning she didn’t want kids. She rejected him time after time before they dated the first time. She rejected him time after time after that, for nine goddamn fucking years. His refusal to stop pursuing her, and accept she did not fucking love him, destroyed his relationship with Victoria TWICE. He is the whiny high school teenager bitching because the popular girl he obsesses over just isn’t into him. He is the goddamn Nice Guy, the kind whose every action, every so-called kind deed is done purely out of trying to get Robin to date him.
Robin motherfucking Scherbatsky was an independent woman who not only relied on herself, but expected the men she wanted to be with to be independent and rely on himself, as well. She was career-minded and strong and independent and self-reliant. Those were the traits that doomed her and Ted.
In this gifset we see that Ted did not respect Robin for who she was. He didn’t want her to be self-reliant—he wanted her to rely on him. He’s like so many men out there, so many Nice Guys. Baby, let me take care of you while you put me before everything else, You’re too independent, Robin. I need you to need me, I need you to rely on me. The reason they didn’t work out was because they both wanted and needed different things in relationships, and that’s okay—what isn’t okay is that instead of accepting that, Ted blames her. Tells her that SHE is the reason why they broke up, and something about her is WRONG. He insults her, tells her that her fundamental personality is wrong, and that she is why their relationship failed; that they they just aren’t compatible, no; because she is broken.
She is so upset at this she goes to another ex. He’s the Jerk, you know; the guy who all the Nice Guys in the world call The Asshole. And you know what? You know what this Asshole does? He comforts her, he compliments her. He tells her that those traits, teh traits she’s been belittled and taunted over, the traits that make her broken, the reason why She Can’t Find A Man, are what make her wonderful. Barney loved her for her insecurities, and he supported her independence. He supported her self-reliance. In one scene, this Asshole prove to be far more accepting and mature than the so-called Nice Guy.
So who do she end up with?
how i met your mother ending is bullshit
Let me know what you think!
She always turned to her dad.
ARGH LET ME TELL YOU A THING.
I saw this little article about “10 Reasons Why Frozen is the most modern disney movie” or something blahblahblah, and reason number one was that Elsa’s parents were abusive.
noooooooooo. no no no no no.
FROLLO was abusive. MOTHER GOTHEL WAS ABUSIVE.
Elsa’s parents did their darn best to make sure none of their daughters got hurt. Her dad didn’t know how to handle ice powers! He didn’t have ice powers! Nobody else had ice powers! No! All he knew was that Elsa had to learn to control her powers, and he did his darn best to help her. Maybe he didn’t go about it correctly. Maybe he accidentally contributed to her anxiety issues. MAYBE HE MESSED HER UP.
But it wasn’t on purpose.
Look at this man. Look how much he cares for his daughter. He’s not afraid to touch her. He’s not afraid to hold her. He gave her the gloves FOR HER OWN PROTECTION, and Elsa turned them into a prison because she was afraid of herself.
This movie is fascinating, not because it showed abusive parents, but because it showed LOVING, WELL MEANING, ADORABLE parents trying to help their daughter in the best way they could. Even if they did it wrong. Even if they didn’t have all the answers. They TRIED.
And that’s the saddest part. Because sometimes, even when parents try their best, they can still mess their kids up. It’s reality. But I don’t think Elsa ever blamed him for trying.
¿?¿?Or just do the smart thing and not put yourself in danger by going to parties?¿?¿?
WISDOM, ladies. Don’t go to parties. Don’t go out to social events. Don’t go out in public, there are strangers there who could be rapists. Don’t attend family gatherings or friends’ houses, sexual assault is most often from people we know and are close to. Close yourself off from the world. Don’t grocery shop. Don’t shop at all. Shop online and don’t answer the door for the fedex man. Live in a darkened room with the drapes closed. You don’t get to have fun, fun is for people who don’t have what rapists feel entitled to. Your body is the cost you pay for fun.
Women can have social lives. Don’t you dare, even for a second, suggest that the cure for our rape culture is by avoiding any situation where rape could occur, because let me fucking tell you, it can happen anywhere, anytime. It can happen in your home, it can happen in your neighborhood, it can happen in your car or in your mother’s car or in the mall.
The fact that we need these kinds of precautions are already sick enough, don’t you victim shame. Make parties safer.
Fuck you and the horse you rode in on.
Real friendship is when your friend comes over to your house and then you both just take a nap.
And/or flop somewhere comfortable and tumble and not talk much except to show each other some stupid thing you found online
A sense of humor can make everything better. Sex isn’t like it is in the movies or in porn. There will be strange and weird and awkward sounds, there might be a silly interruption like the cat or a kid… you might knock heads or trip getting undressed. Sex is funny, foreplay is funny and sometimes you need to just laugh. It will keep things from getting awkward! If you take sex too seriously you aren’t truly enjoying it!
Not to mention a sense of humor can be really sexy no matter what your gender identity is!
this comic is literally my favorite thing on tumblr.
i’ve always said if you can’t laugh with the person you’re having sex with while you’re having sex with them you shouldn’t be having sex with them.
My husband once walked up behind me while i was sitting in the living room just watching t.v…and he put his penis on my shoulder and said “hello..”
THIS WAS HIS SEDUCTION.
THIS WAS HIS IDEA OF HOW TO GET ME INTO BED.
it worked, but not before I laughed for days.
For that last comment.
I always had a ton of weird funky condoms at my place because I volunteered with Planned Parenthood and did a lot of sex education and sex positive work. I literally had no less than like thirty different types of condoms at a time. So when it came time to grabbing a condom it was a grab bag of WHO KNOWS what you’ll end up with.
Long story short, my boyfriend grabs one, puts it on, heat of the moment type thing, a some point we both look down and see it’s an ELECTRIC GREEN condom. Dead pan he looks me straight in the eye and in his best impression goes “HEY HO. KERMIT DEE FROG HERE.” And I COMPLETELY LOST IT.
On a completely different occasion I said “don’t stop” and he sang ALL of Don’t Stop Believing. All of it. All of it. Right then and there. Without stopping.
Can I add the story about how me and one of my partners had a very enthralling discussion about deserts while I was on top of him?
Or the time my partner’s friends blasted “Eye of the Tiger” through the door and we rocked it out to the beat while quoting the movie?
I was with this girl during a trip out to Washington, we’d hung out a few times, and hit it off really well. So we got together one afternoon. Her dorm-mate came home, saw the “Do Not Disturb” sock on her bedroom door and called out “Thrusters to full!”
Not missing a beat the girl and I yelled back “We’re giving it all we’ve got, Captain!” and her roommate started fucking dying outside the door.
Probably should have proposed right on the spot, but whatever.
It got better.
I love this post forever.
Yesterday was my grandparents 45th anniversary and my grandma was like “if I had killed him 20 years ago I would be out of jail by now” and that basically sums them up
