I sure as hell don’t know how to begin to write this, and in all honesty I was never sure I’d have to. But the sun still sets in the brightest cities, just like sometimes the greatest loves, burn out. I owe a lot to you, you not only taught me how to love you, but how to love myself. You gave me reasons to smile on the darkest days, and because of you I slept peacefully knowing that when I woke your eyes would meet with mine and there would be nothing I couldn’t face - because I had you. But that’s just it, I ‘had’ you, and I don’t anymore. And that is what I am struggling to accept. Because I’m not sure when it happened, I’m not sure at what point the love began to fade. I can’t pin point the exact moment when the light fell from your eyes when you told me you loved me. I didn’t see the signs, I didn’t see the packed suitcases at the front door, and I definitely didn’t see your tail lights fade as you drove away for the last time.
Perhaps I wasn’t ready to accept it, perhaps I never will. My head was saying “baby, prepare yourself because here comes goodbye” while my fragile little heart said “tell him you love him, tell him you will forever, because if this is the last time you are ever going to see him, that is what you’re going to want to be sure that the knows.”
Every breakup is an educational and humbling experience, for you learn that you were wrong.
I thought I’d make a post summarizing Taylor Swifts video “Shake It Off” for the people who don’t want to give her more hate views on VEVO. Maybe instead of giving her 4,000 angry views on youtube we can just give her my one view and reblog this hella so no one else watches it out of irritable curiosity?
Anyways the video is basically just her dancing singing an anthem that every White person appropriating another culture says, “The haters gonna hate.” There’s no real content or plot to the video, just a lot of dance shots where she’s being really awkward. It’s actually amazing how someone could really pretend to be so innocent and naive yet still convey a very harmful message.
Above I posted some screen caps of the video and after only watching it once I got all I needed to know. Already from the beginning of the video you see a hard clash between the dancers. There are the prima ballerina types who are all white women, elegantly leaping and stretching and dancing. Then there are the faceless black women who are shaking their asses. Yes, faceless, literally every shot of the “twerkers” are only their asses. There’s also other groups of dancers which include some break dancers (which are all brown men,) and contemporary dancers (which is a group of white people and one girl with an afro.) Oh, yes, I forgot the cheerleading group which was all white cheerleaders and one black girl in the back. I just find it hard to believe that they couldn’t have a solid mixed group of people in each category. She pulled a Miley and Iggy and probably said something like “Well I want a more urban feel! But keep the safe ballerinas white!!” Literally the only group that had a saturation of black women was the twerking group. She even had them squat and shake their asses while she crawled through their legs! So edgy! So urban!
This is the problem I have with Taylor Swift. She’s always trying to convey herself as the innocent one who is “man worthy” (as if being man worthy is even important) while slut shaming other women for being sexual, or even just dressing in “short skirts” and “high heels.” All of the sudden now she wants to say, “To hell with the haters I can have as many problematic exes as I want! Now I’m going to be single and edgy! I’m going to shake it off! And to be single and edgy and sexual I have to
dance with a bunch of ass shaking black women!USE A BUNCH OF BLACK WOMEN AS PROPS"
Long story story, Taylor Swift is not only a slut shaming misogynist, she’s ignorant and has obviously racist/stereotypical views of brown and black people.
sometimes i think i’m sassy and then i realize i’m just too sarcastic and borderline mean
They’re just so adorable, aren’t they?
