Alright, so let's start. These are just my opinions. I'm using you as a general term.
People always say you are perfect as you are. And yet we still taunt celebrities about a new look, and there's the whole issue with models for things. I get it, you wall sell the clothes so you go for skinny women BUT a lot of the clothes would look much better with a curvy woman, or at least someone who isn't the barbie figure. Even guy models, half of them seem to be quite skinny. You wanna sell clothes? show them on random people pulled from the street and don't photoshop the pictures so much because if we see more "normal looking" people wearing these clothes, we might start to think "hang on a sec, that looks good and I have a similar look, I might go and try that!" make up, same again. I have really small lips and i find it hard to find a good make up look, so why don't they show something for that? it'd be so useful. It's annoying. Also the figure thing might actually give people more confidence in wearing something.
This is probably going to be long and is a touchy subject. A lot of people are bullied in school, a hell of a lot. I was bullied, and it was horrible. Just because someone doesn't have as much money as you, doesn't look like you, or speak like you, IT DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO TORMENT THEM AND DRIVE THEM TO INSANITY AND SELF LOATHING!!! You have no idea what they could be going through at home or anything, so be nice. Also, they're probably really nice and lovely, but because you choose to bully instead of getting to know them, you wouldn't know. They want to be your friend? LET THEM! Don't push them out because they have different ideals! There are people out there killing themselves because of bullying, but what are people doing about it? NOTHING! unless something like the Amanda Todd thing happens, nothing ever gets done. Teachers hardly do anything and turn a blind eye to it mostly, as long as you're doing well in class they don't care if you're suffering. There are children scared to go to school because of bullying, I was one of them. School should be a safe environment for learning and making friends, not a bloody battlefield of words and physical abuse! Words can haunt forever, I know this from experience. If you keep hearing the same words enough, you'll start believing them, and it takes a bloody long time to get over it. Apparently Bullies do it because it makes them feel better. Why don't they just try being nice to people instead? It makes you feel a damn site better and it'll help you and that person out. It's just a horrible thing to do, to torment someone to the point where they feel worthless, paranoid, scared, lost, alone, and above all, not able to feel anything, which leads me to my next point.
Dear god, DO NOT get into it. It may give you a temporary high, but it is an ADDICTION, and a very dangerous one. It may feel good when you do it, but it will just get you wanting more and more to the point where you're cutting or whatever you do to an extreme level. I you feel yourself at the point where you want to do something, TELL SOMEONE. friends, family, someone who can help you and support you. Do not isolate yourself at any point, it makes it terribly worse and increases negative feelings about 50% more. If you can prevent it from happening, DO SO, or at least do it before it gets out of hand, as you never know if the next cut, burn, overdose, alkaline cleaning product will be your last. Also, don't do it just to be "cool". That's just mocking the people who do it because they feel they need to. a good site to go to is www.selfharm.co.uk , they have many stories on there about self harm, you can submit anonymously and there are people to help and advise you. So even if you feel you cannot tell someone close to you, the people at selfharm.co.uk will always listen and provide help. there are also national helplines in each country who provide help, god bless them, so give them a call or email. And if anyone wants to speak, I'm also open to listening and helping.
anyway, onto a lighter topic...
Okay, everyone seems to have a fandom they're a part of and follow religiously. I myself am a part of The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Dr Who, Merlin and a few more. They're a fun enviroment where you can speak about what's happening in the series, chat about which characters you think would be good together and weep about which parts make you sad. But remember, just like religion, it is not good to try and force someone to like what you like. Also, don't cross fandoms unless it somehow naturally seems to fit. Some of the fandoms I have had the worst encounters with are:
Weeaboos/Anime fans: I'm a fan of anime, but weeaboos tick me off. It's nice you like something, but don't glorify a country based on what you have seen in their cartoons, that's just dumb. If you're seriously interested in the country or even the stuff like fashion or anime, fine, but do proper research about it instead of watching Naruto and Hetalia all day then claim you know so much nihongo desu neee!111 Hetalia ones are the worst for it. Hetalia is pretty funny, yes, but it is in no way accurate, and is very stereotypical and offensive to each country. It's been banned in South Korea for a reason. Also the whole Jashin thing, it's not a religion, it's a goddamned cult and it's scary as hell to think about! Also, the people who like "lolitas" in a sexual way, you realise it's a form of pedophilia right?! It's sick and wrong, and so is hentai in general.
Bronies: Definitely the worst for it. I feel sorry for the sane ones. sane bronies, I do not include you in this. The ones that claim "love and tolerance" then tear people up over the fact they dislike MLP, I mean you. You have to put your MLP into everything, it's annoying. Also, the people who find these ponies sexually attractive, WHAT. THE. HELL?! SERIOUSLY?! It's sick, and it's basically beastiality! same with furry yiff! it's disgusting! My Little Pony is aimed towards little girls, and yes, older people can watch it and enjoy it, But enjoying it that much? it makes me shudder!
Twilight seems to have calmed down now but basically Bella is a whiny unappreciative girl who is a mary sue, Edward is a Gary Stu, and Jacob I feel sorry for you.
That's all my brainpower gone for the night really, if you wish to comment feel free to, and if you ever need to speak to someone, I'll be happy to listen and help should you want to and need a friend. Stay safe and happy~
