Sometimes my opinions are really saturated. I believe in them a lot. If you can’t respect that, stop reading because you’re a fool if you don’t understand the fundamentals of people having opinions. People criticize because they didn’t live in a sheltered world like I did. I hate being upset about something that I know NOBODY will remotely understand. Those who claim to “understand” dont really CARE to understand, if that makes sense. So I’m in a box where everyones against me and thinks of me as inferior because I haven’t experienced life like them? Because they’ve SEEN life for what it is. And just when you think you can count on someone to get it, they don’t and now I know they never will and it makes me wonder what the hell I’m doing anymore with the people in my life.
Something as simple as a movie trailer can get me upset. Why? Because I believe it’ll revolutionize the amount of sexuality in the world. Period. And nobody cares because “its just a movie”. NO its not “just a movie”. Its a movie that children will see their role models being objectified. Another reason people don’t care is because they like it because right NOW is when they are seeing/experiencing it. Just thinking about having kids or a future is DEPRESSING because of the things I see NOW.
How many headlines/tv shows/media outlets are there about teen pregnancy? About kids having babies at the age of 9 in EUROPE? If you look on Tumblr theres teen GIRLS that WANT to be like the girls on Teen MOM. How many headlines are there about teachers sleeping with students? Were there movies about these things [YES]? How many headlines are there about YOUNG people getting shot these days? You really think theres no correlation? All the sexualized video games, the computer games, the accessibility of it all, doesnt it SCARE you? The other day I was playing a Shoot Bubble game on my phone [meant for children], and an add popped up for virtually making out or fighting other users of the app. PERFECT! Thats exactly what I would want my kid to see or my younger cousins when they’re playing a bubble game on my phone. And TV? Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars…shows like that, geared towards teenagers right? But who do you think REALLY watches them? Its the preteens that want to be older! Its the younger kids that think its COOL. And what do they see?
I care about people, I love people, I’m not evil… so I don’t understand why people can’t just accept that I have these views and be okay with them without being belittling, without being angry, without being degrading. So many people call themselves old-fashioned.. You haven’t met me yet. [And yet I’m no where near old fashioned]
I bet you someone will read this and get pissed and call me “prude” or a crazy person for having such strong beliefs, but that’s going to become OK for me now because whoever doesn’t GET it, can get OUT. I don’t have time for people that think I’m an idiot or think that I need to “get with the times”..maybe the “times” isn’t that GREAT.
People think I live in another world, at a different time- therefore I am stupid, a child or ignorant. They don’t have to say those words outloud for me to know that’s what they think. It’s in every breath they take.
Truth is, I wish I was living in a different world at a different time. Because frankly, this place, at this time, is a real crap hole. And it’s only getting worse.
I have three things to say.
1) Wow Elijah and Klaus
2) Good job photoshopping [except for the satin sheet], I’m impressed
3) [my opinion]- Again, why are they trying to use sex to sell The Vampire Diaries. These people don’t even HAVE sex in the show anymore. I just find it over the top. There’s no need for it [despite it being a lil sexy]. I just don’t think they should use sex as a marketing point for TVD.
Modesty is overrated.

Corona has changed since I last drank it…seems a bit, ehem, sexier.
