“Little did the reader know that the author’s dad routinely abused her, and kept up an affair with the school teacher. The school teacher knew of the molestation but didn’t say anything out of her love for the author’s father. Lisa was protecting this girl, because Lisa was also a victim of sexual abuse from her father as well.”
ARE WE ALL IGNORING HOW UTTERLY FUCKING CREEPY THIS IS HOLY SHIT
no, this is the cutest thing i’ve seen all my life!!!
Stop saying you want an Augustus Waters, if you’re not going to be a Hazel Grace.
A guy with good intentions
dear broni friendzoni, it is almost impossible for a girl to go anywhere without fear of getting assaulted, if a guy walked up to us and immediately said he wanted us to go to the movies with him alone the very first time he met us, we have every right to be creeped out and weary, stop telling girls that if they want to find love they have to trust every “nice guy” they meet.
sincerely a girl who got sexually assaulted because she was left alone with a boy she only met that day <3
I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”
- Sacheen Littlefeather in Reel Injun (2009), dir. Neil Diamond.
They were MAD, CONFUSED AND PRESSED that Marlon Brando would betray White Supremacy in this way.
To this very day, they are TWISTED over this.
And when Littlefeather got up there and READ THEM FOR FILTH, they GAGGED. For eons.
So I imagine there are people like me out there who’ve never even heard of Marlon Brando and are extremely confused over why this is important.
Marlon Brando was the Don in The Godfather, and in 1973, he was nominated for and won an Academy Award for it. However, he was also a huge Natives rights activist, and boycotted the ceremony because he felt that Hollywood’s depictions of Native Americans in the media led to the Wounded Knee Incident (which I was always taught as “the second massacre at Wounded Knee” but apparently that’s not the real name). He sent Sacheen Littlefeather, an Apache Native rights activist, in his stead. Wikipedia’s article on her explains the rest:
Brando had written a 15-page speech for Littlefeather to give at the ceremony, but when the producer met her backstage he threatened to physically remove her or have her arrested if she spoke on stage for more than 60 seconds. Her on-stage comments were therefore improvised. She then went backstage and read the entire speech to the press. In his autobiography My Word is My Bond, Roger Moore (who presented the award) claims he took the Oscar home with him and kept it in his possession until it was collected by an armed guard sent by the Academy.
That is what this gifset is about.
You have GOT to read up on this. The Wounded Knee Incident, Marlon Brando and Sacheen Littlefeather, Anna Mae Aquash. ALL OF IT.
So here are the vines, in order, that are a part of the addicting forrest nymph (who still hasn’t found his berries) saga.
god bless you
i love how with each vine, he becomes more and more the forest nymph and less the human he once was

"The press is so powerful in its image-making role, it can make a criminal look like he’s the victim and make the victim look like he’s the criminal. This is the press, an irresponsible press. If you aren’t careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing."
