Do you hear the people sing, singing the song of angry men?
It is the music of a people who will not be slaves again!
so the maccabeats have done a passover-themed rendition of les miserables, in absolutely gorgeous a capella form
if you have not seen it what are you doing, watch it immediately
How BEYONCÉ should have opened.
omg i almost spit out my hot chocolate - that intro though slayed. things i gotta remember to be honest.
LOOK. IT’S EVERY SINGLE STEREOTYPE ABOUT MEN’S RIGHTS ACTIVISTS PUT INTO ONE HANDY-DANDY DEMOGRAPHICS SURVEY SO IT CAN BE STATISTICALLY VALIDATED!! [x]
I think it’s hilarious when people criticize minorities for complaining about their oppressors with “hate breeds hate” like yeah lol why do you think they’re mad at you
even if this has been done already I don’t care I’m still proud of myself
this is literally the most obscure thing I’ve ever experienced how the fuck would someone have done this already
Oh no, I got a B, my mom is going to kill me!
OKAY NO. Listen up. There are obviously people who struggle in school and there are obviously people that rub the fact that they have good grades in other people’s faces so I’m not saying those problems don’t exist.
But there are kids whose parents are so ridiculous and so demanding of perfection that they are literally scared of their parents.
In seventh grade I was almost denied the chance to go on a school field trip because if we had late homework we had to get homework slips signed by our parents. I was so frightened to tell my mother that I had forgotten to do homework that I forged her signatures. I also got some behavioral slips that I needed to get signed and was equally scared and yeah it was just a big shit fest.
There’s a reward for getting the highest grade on the chemistry test in my class. Most kids see it as a fun little competition to help improve their grade. My parents view it as a failure if I do not receive this award every unit.
Both of my sisters got 4.0s through high school, both of my sisters managed to be okay with this disgusting system of expectations.
But there are plenty of kids, myself included, who cannot keep the expectations set for them.
But what I’m trying to say is that for every kid that is failing there are kids that are so stressed by the expectations their parents put on them that crying about a B is basically just normal.
So shut the fuck up okay this pissed me off so much and gah
It’s the arrow that matters.
The man under the hood isn’t important.
