the fact women are viewed as being more sexy at 15 than 40 is the creepiest thing in the world
when i was 12 years old my health teacher told us all that he thought girls were the most beautiful at age 14-15 and we would never be that beautiful again for the rest of our lives
back then it scared me that i wouldnt stay pretty
once i got older it scared me that he found no shame in saying that, and neither do countless other men
If you’re following me you may have noticed that I’m not in a good financial situation right now. My family is only made of my brother, my parents and I, no one else, and we’ve been having troubles paying the bills because my brother lost his job last month, and my father got an accident earlier this year that doesn’t allow him to work anymore. I would have liked to earn some money this summer just like last year but my health has been a problem for a little while now so I won’t be able to. And unfortunately it’s not like we have savings, we’ve always been poor…
What’s different now is that the amount of difficulties we recently encountered are seriously making me consider abandoning my studies in cinema, abandoning the idea of having a diploma and getting into a prestigious private school just so I can find a precarious job, which is for me and my parents the worst case scenario.
This school I’m talking about is the only one affordable for me - because it’s the only one offering scholarships - and it’s basically my only hope for a decent job in the field I love. All the money I’ve ever earned has been saved to pay this school but we can’t save money anymore because we live with the bare minimum. And I’m going to admit it: I am terrified.
That’s why I’m asking for your help. Because if it continues like this I may as well have never studied anything, have never hoped for a career. Understand that I don’t want to make anyone donate more than they would be comfortable with, if you can’t afford donating it’s fine ! But maybe consider signal boosting ?
The smallest amount would be welcome, if enough of you donate 0,5$ or 1$ this could actually allow me to finish my studies and get a decent future. I have never asked for money before and I never thought I’d come to such an extremity. I’m thankful for anyone who would offer me some help. Thank you so much for just reading this.
You can donate here or via the donate button on my blog
Also an alternative to donations would be to commission me, I’m going to open commissions for my art in a month. If you’re in the fandom of any film or series I hope you’ll be interested, I love drawing for films or series and this would obviously be really helpful.
Thank you again.
Murasaki Shikibu (English: Lady Murasaki) (c. 978 – c. 1014 or 1025)
Murasaki Shikibu was a Japanese novelist, poet, and lady-in-waiting at the Imperial court during the Heian period. She is best known as the author of The Tale of Genji, written in Japanese between about 1000 and 1012, which is considered to be one of the world’s finest and earliest novels. Some argue that Murasaki is the world’s first modern novelist.
Though it was improper at the time for women to learn Chinese classics, Murasaki was taught them alongside her brother in her younger years. In her early twenties, she was married to a distant relative with whom she had a daughter. It is uncertain when she began to write The Tale of Genji, but it was likely while she was married or shortly after she was widowed. In about 1005, Murasaki was invited to serve as a lady-in-waiting to Empress Shoshi at the Imperial court, likely due to her reputation as a writer. She continued to write during her service, adding scenes from court life to her work. After five or six years, she left court and retired with Shoshi to the Lake Biwa region.
The Tale of Genji became popular from the moment of its release. Within a century it was recognized as a classic of Japanese literature. Scholars continue to recognize the importance of her work, which reflects Heian court society at its peak.
There are as many sorts of women as there are women.
- The Tale of Genji
Honestly can’t wait for the 50 shades movie to normalize the manipulation of lower-level female employees. Can’t wait for the new wave of “consent is sexy” banners on the cover of cosmo. Can’t wait for teen girls to think that a controlling relationship is romantic. Can’t wait for sexualized violence to become increasingly mainstream. And most of all, I can’t wait for BDSM to be labeled a feminist revolution.
this doesnt have enough notes…..
Reading Builds Up Your Imagination :)
I literally could not scroll past this without reblogging
I have that quote on my wall lol
Still my favorite story from the Lord of the Rings set: Viggo Mortensen bonded so much with the horse he rode in the movies that after filming was over he bought it from its owner. If that doesn’t warm your heart I don’t know what could.
don’t forget that he also bought arwen’s horse for her stunt rider when she couldn’t afford it awww
#also don’t forget that for the rohirrim they put a call out for locals #bring a horse show us you can ride it and get a part in the battle scenes #and one women went out roped a wild horse and rode for a few days to set #and got to be a rider of rohan
also sort of relevant viggo also bought the horse that costarred with him in the movie hidalgo and subsequently took the horse (tj) with him to the red carpet premier.
Also most of the Riders of Rohan are actually women because when they put out that call mostly women showed up with their horses and the costume team just stuck beards on them.
if this isn’t the best post i don’t know what is
new zealanders are actually rohirrim tho
