This website is a competition of who can be the most oppressed

it’s just like so weird cause a lot of tumblrisms are clearly stemmed from aave and then killed by non-black POC & white people hence their constant misuse and eventual overuse, until black people come up w more terms to use 

terms like

  • basic
  • prayer circle
  • thirst/thirsty/the thirst
  • (example) game on point
  • (example) game strong
  • slay
  • shade
  • bruh
  • hunty
  • bae
  • stay in [pronoun] lane

etc etc etc

stop usin aave just because you learned it on tumblr

you’re still not entitled to it and you’re especially not if you just use it to seem hip and cool and funny

cause what it boils down to is that you don’t use it for expression and you were not raised to speak like that, nor do you live around people who speak like that— you just use it to be funny in front of your friends and that’s the thing I don’t like

this is a good post and im going to go ahead and add that the very popular word fuckboy is aave and existed pre tumblr in the black community stop using it

I love when little Tumblr babies think they can tell me what words I can and can’t use. I’ll tell you what—I’ll use these words, when I want to! No red tape, no blackout dates, I can use them in every sentence if I want to. Alright there, bruh? 

I don’t use this words…
Not because I’m “not entitled to them”
But because they sound unintelligent. And they make you sound like an idiot. "Shade" and "bruh" make any conversation significantly less intelligent.

She also considered very seriously what she would look like in a little cottage in the middle of the forest, dressed in a melancholy gray and holding communion only with the birds and trees; a life of retirement away from the vain world; a life into which no man came.

Shameless Plug: LAST GAME Chapter 30
Thu, 18th Sep — 8 notes

Sunlight hitting a doorframe in Weeks Hall, sometime around 2007, with a patient bedframe bizarrely overturned in the corridor.  Sadly, a few years after this photograph was taken, Weeks Hall - a ward building that had stood on the grounds of Connecticut Valley Hospital for over a century - was torched by an arsonist.

Most of Grafton State Hospital, the former farm colony for the asylum in Worcester, MA, is pretty well destroyed - vandals have gotten in, smashing things and leaving graffiti on the walls.  But this basement corridor, with some relatively unique ductwork and its pastel paint - has remained relatively untouched.  Perhaps that’s due to the labyrinthine nature of the building; some parts of feel like one is going in circles when one is actually navigating closer and closer to the more interesting parts of the building.  Or perhaps it’s due to the proximity of this corridor to the buildings on the campus that are still in use - as a Massachusetts Jobs Corps center.  In any case, I’m just glad that it remains in a state of undisturbed abandonment.
