what the fuck

Articles like this will be passed around and well respected by 90% of the population and that is so fucking frightening to me. Regardless of how you feel about the initial incident in question, it is extremely offensive to categorize an entire group of people as being “too stupid to understand politics” or “irrational lunatics” similar to that of an organization whose main intent is to harm and kill. Using the word “terrorists” loosely is something that a lot of people in this country thoroughly enjoy, and the ignorance of that action is too much for me to bear. It’s funny how in a situation laced with racism, sexism and ignorance, I am most perturbed by the fact that this what written by a WOMAN who has no business shitting all over her own kind. When will people begin to understand that articles like this quickly mask over the campaigns saying “Love your body no matter how you look” or other vapid campaigns directed at women of all ages regarding their bodies, and instead say to teenage girls “you are way too fucking stupid to comment on this matter.” Being a One Direction fan has ZERO to do with being politically informed but this gal has no problem grouping all fans (“teenage girls”) into this category of overzealous morons. It’s easy to find a couple of screen grabs of some admittedly “crazy” fans, but if this reporter had devoted another five seconds to perusing that hashtag, I’m sure her pea brain would have been surprised at the eloquent and thought provoking responses she would have seen. The ideas you are projecting onto these girls will not fade away when they get into their 20s and 30s. Telling young girls they are too stupid to comment on a textbook example of “lazy and accidental racism” is mental terrorism, ya fuck.

Maybe they did like me. Maybe they liked my kookiness. I could be—I could be like, the cute one in the office, y’know, the ditzy one who always gets it wrong. Y’know, the office clown. I’ll be like ‘Oh Yolanda, I’ve lost the file!’ And she’ll be like, ‘That’s alright, Daisy, we just like having you around, y’know? Because you’re like, crazy and wild. You’re like, an asset to the office dynamic.’

*pause*

It’s a no.
