one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’
no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shittyAlways reblog this because becoming more socially aware makes you dislike a lot of people
Tv shows are less entertaining now.
And music sucks
I’m so sorry but its just that time of year
so totally not soorrryyyy YHEAAAA!!!!!!!!!
for you Courtney
i will reblog this again because teena loves me
i don’t want to be a part of a college system where plagiarism is a worse crime than rape
Gustave Caillebotte - The Floor Scrapers (1875-6)
Original on top, later version below
"Despite the effort Caillebotte put into the painting, it was rejected by France’s most prestigious art exhibition, The Salon, in 1875. The depiction of working-class people in their trade, not fully clothed, shocked the jurors and was deemed a ‘vulgar subject matter.’
The images of the floor scrapers came to be associated with Degas’s paintings of washerwomen, also presented at the same exhibition and similarly scorned as ‘vulgar’”.
I’ve never seen the later version before! Didn’t even know there was one. Neato.
You know that feeling when you get sucked into an internet vortex of one link leading into another leading into the comment section populated by misinformed probably-thirteen-year-olds, only to snap out of it two hours later despairing of humanity and also hungry?
