So I was asked if I could do for Merle what I did for Zach in regards to his influence on Bethyl. It’s a whole different thing. In the end, yes, Merle did indirectly help Daryl and Beth bond; however, to get to that point, you need to REALLY dissect Merle and Daryl’s relationship, and that gets… messy. There’s a lot of Beth intertwined and parallels to draw. So to keep it tidy, I tried to break it into parts.
Like when women hate men it’s frustrating at worst, maybe it hurts someone’s feelings, but when men hate women they are shamed, abused, patronized, demeaned, objectified, raped, and murdered, ya feel me, so even if I WAS a raging misandrist like worst case scenario I’d be a bummer at parties, meanwhile a girl somewhere literally can’t leave her house because it’s dark outside.
"Ain’t nothing sadder than an outdoor cat that thinks he’s an indoor cat"
Being a nice guy and being a “nice guy”: Know the difference.
There is LITERALLY no difference.
Women don’t owe you shit. We are not sex objects. Too bad if you’re sad about it. You don’t deserve anybody. You are not entitled to another human being.
That’s just how it works.
HOLY SHIT WHAT
IT’S PERFECTLY NATURAL TO BE SAD WHEN SOMEONE YOU’RE INTERESTED IN DOESN’T WANT TO BE WITH YOU
Jesus fucking Christ that’s not entitlement, that’s totally normal disappointment.
There’s a difference between the first and second pictures and if you can’t see it then holy fuck, I’m sorry about your failing vision.
I’m inclined to agree more with the person saying there’s no difference between the two. I mean. Okay. Yes. I see a difference. But honestly not a huge one. I don’t really like the idea that it’s good and normal to be disappointed by someone not meeting your expectations of what you wanted from them. You don’t get to be disappointed that someone only wants to be your friend. I mean seriously. When did it become okay to start considering friendship to be a consolation prize? It’s not. It’s not second best. It’s equally as valuable as having a romantic relationship with someone. It’s not disappointing when someone wants you for your friendship. The first picture does stink of entitlement. I see that point very clearly. The person is disappointed because they felt entitled to something they didn’t get. Even though you’re never entitled to any part of any person. I don’t know. I absolutely see the validity of the second commenters argument. I just want to say it one more time:
Friendship. Is. Not. A. Consolation. Prize.
I can see what y’all mean, in this context with the original caption and the drawings There. Is. A. Difference.
You’re telling me you wouldn’t be sad that someone you pined for said, “No, let’s be friends.” With what these photos show, the first picture is meant to indicate that they can’t have the romantic relationship he desired, so he’s a little sad about it.
People take rejection differently (and it is rejection, even if friendship was offered). Rejection can hurt.
You may not like it, but friendship in this case is the second best, because it wasn’t the first desired.
It’s like any other area. You were hoping for the VP position, but was offered the Secretary spot. You ordered for a smoothie and got a milkshake. You asked for a puppy and got a kitten. These wouldn’t make even a dent in your emotions? It happens and you often cannot change your very first response to any event, including ones of rejection.
I think the situation that brings such disagreement is how a person chooses to continually act after rejection.
If he continued to mope around and be sad and dejected and show this behavior to her in the hopes she would see and change her mind about not dating him, then that’s BS, and there is no difference.
Margaery was only married to Joffrey for like an hour, and it was STILL way too long for her.
The “Everybody is done with everybody” Wedding
Female friendships that work are relationships in which women help each other belong to themselves.
and think that there was EVER a period in time when they respected us.
for every other reason
besides saggy pants!!
oh nah… keep listening to people who preach self hate because the world respects THE FUCK out of black people in a suit and tie.
no matter what you do, say or dress like they’ll continue to do shit like
there’s no such thing as black empowerment while still shaming black people.
