if you want to kill someone stab them with an icicle because the icicle will melt and then there will be no murder weapon

Better yet, make like one of my favorite short stories and murder them with big frozen leg of lamb and then cook the lamb. 

Then when the police arrive offer them something to eat and then have the police eat your murder weapon.

I love that story

Fun fact: Said story is by Roald Fucking Dahl.

“If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad.”

I look at people holding hands in the hallways, and I try to think about how it all works. At the school dances, I sit in the background, and I tap my toe, and I wonder how many couples will dance to ‘their song.’ In the hallways, I see the girls wearing the guys’ jackets, and I think about the idea of property. And I wonder if anyone is really happy. I hope they are. I really hope they are.

Vampires who look and dress like fourteen-year-old budding goth kids because no one will ever believe that they’re actually vampires, no matter what they might see or hear.

Vampires wearing bad plastic fangs and tacky red contacts everywhere they go and telling people to call them things like “Lord Bloodfang McDarkness the Third” and “Salacia, Mistress of the Night”.

The thing that’s so disgusting about the murders of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Sean Bell etc (a very long list) is that it’s not like we’re trying to figure out who killed them. We know perfectly well. We’re just trying to figure out if that black kid deserved to die. They’re humanity is put on trial, like being a person wasn’t enough. Black people literally have to prove that we’re worthy of living.

Anonymous said: I was recently shopping with my little brother for clothes and he found this really cool shirt which was like pink and purple that he really liked and I told him he should get it but he decided not to because he was afraid his friends would think it was "girly" because it had "girly colours" instances like these have happened quite a lot with my siblings lately any advice on how to explain to them about what their saying and how it is problematic?

feminism5ever:

Hm, I think the way to deal with that isn’t to tell them that what they’re saying is problematic, but to explain to them that their friends (and anyone else) are wrong in saying that there are some colors that are girly and therefore inappropriate for boys.

I wouldn’t go into social constructs and huge things but I’d ask them like “what’s a boy color?” and if they say blue/etc then I’d ask “well, you see blue dresses and girls wearing blue skirts, right? and girls wear jeans too, and jeans are blue too” and just use that as an example to show that there are no “girl” or “boy” colors.

I’d just say that we should wear whatever we’re comfortable with and what people say or think don’t matter. Like I’d just drill it in that anyone can wear anything. And to encourage him to wear a “girly” color if he’s afraid or anything, maybe you can offer to wear a pink shirt of your own too with him and kind of like make it a sibling thing, so he won’t feel so self-conscious.
