someone should invent a music service where you can listen to metal without the vocals because i’m not always in the mood to listen to someone that sounds like a grizzly bear belching fire

I’ve just seen a photoset with reminded me Alfie Enoch was in Coriolanus.

He’s been in everything this year, hasn’t he? Sherlock, Coriolanus, How to Get Away With Murder… It feels like he disappeared after the HP movies ended, then decided that 2014 was his year. Not that I’m complaining.

A list of red flags for potentially abusive parents. This list comes from my experiences with folks that have been abused.

NOTE: You DO NOT have to have all of these markers. I have know people that read through a list like this and go “but they don’t hut me”. Emotional and financial abuse do exist and are forms of abuse.

  • If your parents either have access to your bank account OR regularly FORCE you to check your accounts with them present.
  • If you are told not to talk about things that happen at home to others.
  • If you’re over the age of 15 and still have filters/time limits on your computer.
  • If your parents seem dismissive or paranoid of your online friends.
  • If you are afraid to speak your mind because “someone will yell at me” or “I’ll make someone angry”.
  • Being hit or hurt by your parents.
  • If you think of all of your actions as “bad” and all of your parents actions as “good”.
  • If, when an issue arises, your parents blame you instead of helping you or using it as a teaching point.
  • If you spend most of your time taking care of your parents or taking on their responsibilities.
  • If you are constantly scared to speak to your parents.
  • If your parents force you to quit a job.
  • If your parents control your life in a micro managing fashion (Every aspect of what you wear, what you eat, when you do things).

Please read this and know that it is not your fault, you can get out of this.

I disagree with - 

  • If you’re over the age of 15 and still have filters/time limits on your computer.
  • If your parents seem dismissive or paranoid of your online friends (kinda) 

mostly because if you are under 18, your parents have every right to limit your time on electronics and be paranoid about online friends. there is nothing wrong with time limits for electronics in children. you are still developing during your teenage years and there are tons of studies about how extensive time on electronics can hurt development. 

the other one, well that should be self explanatory. teenagers can be very naive and trusting. as a parent you should always be cautious of who your children are talking to online and if they are giving personal information. you never know who someone is on the internet. i mean, yesterday a YA author admitted to stalking a book blogger, so…

of course there is a line between cautious and controlling but i don’t think those two are prime examples of abusive behavior. 

I agree with what punkfarie said. Plus there have been repeated news stories with teenage girls going to meet people they’ve connected with online and being assaulted/killed by them. a) It is a real danger and b) Parents see those stories and naturally want to ensure it doesn’t happen to their child, even if they’ve inflated the danger in their own mind. It’s not abuse, it’s good parenting.

Also, lots of people take on the responsibilities of their parents or caring for them not because it’s something the parent wants, but because the parent genuinely needs that care (through mental or physical disability) and unfortunately the child ends up shouldering that burden because of gaps in state care.

The prison-industrial complex is just a myth…right?

Jesus he didn’t even have us do the damn math. He just said it.

…yeah. I suppose there’s no point in finding flowery rhetoric for it. “Putting people in jail is good for business” is pretty much the size of it.

On the upside, the film industry has made an ART of making things seem as though they are not made out of safe soft foam.  So it’s unlikely that head crashed down on glass.

More importantly, what the hell is this FROM? Seriously!
