Hi! I'm Jess, I'm a 20 year old nerdy feminist and I'm from Norfolk in England. She/Her.

I feel totally weirded out by Carrie’s Book Club and it feels really out of character for her channel and idk it feels wrong

like £16 for something worth about £2 or £3 and it’s not even really a book club and she’s selling it to a young impressionable audience who are likely to buy anything from her and idk

I’m a bit disappointed really

Anonymous asked: why do black people use you in the wrong context? such is "you ugly" instead of "you're ugly" I know u guys can differentiate, it's a nuisance

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

anagnori:

It takes a lot of courage to be honest with yourself, and to see yourself for what you really are. And it takes even more courage to admit that you were wrong and that you need to start doing things differently.

I wish more folks would appreciate the inner strength it takes for people—especially kids and teenagers—to question their identities and try out words for themselves, instead of dismissing them as “confused,” or “attention-seeking.”

To be confused about your identity doesn’t mean that you are weak or fake. Not knowing something doesn’t mean that you are foolish or inferior. Being able to admit you don’t know something, is the first step to learning and growing as a person.

Fun fact: if you approach an employee and insist that they go ‘check the back’ for an item that’s not on the shelf, there is a 90% chance that they’ll go to the back room, scratch their ass and check their text messages for five minutes, and come back out with a sympathetic smile and a ‘Sorry!’ because they know without even looking that the stock isn’t there.


Or the old “can you ask a manager?”

I sometimes laugh because I picture Tatiana Maslany standing up with that fire behind her eyes, delivering a venemous line as she stares ferociously at a tennis ball.

This woman gets paid to talk to a tennis ball. On a stick.

The joke that Bender tells but never finishes (while crawling through the ceiling) actually has no punchline. According to Judd Nelson, he ad-libbed the line. Originally, he was supposed to tell a joke that would end when he came back into the library and said, “Forgot my pencil”, but no one could come up with a joke for that punchline.

Did they just make up this entire movie on the spot.
