Do you think it’s better to sit idly by while something is happening that you don’t agree with, for fear of punishment/termination, or to say what you believe in with possibility of the aforementioned punishment/termination? I’m curious.
“… And just this sort of world that we’re bringing children into where girls are more self conscious and terrified than they ever are. And then then these older people are saying, ‘Oh these girls are so fucking slutty.” And it’s like they’re damaged, terrible, ruined people that are over stimulated and are constantly surrounded by people more beautiful than them. They have magazines that are telling them, that make them hate themselves, that are promoting musical artists that sell songs that then say ‘I love you’ in them. Do you know why all these songs about ‘I love you’ are selling so well? Because these girls need that so desperately because they feel fucking hated by everything.”—Bo Burnham (via lloydboner)
