I think that the USA needs to move on from September 11th.

Now before all you pseudo-patriots come attempting to sway my opinion with your “unwavering loyalty to the country”, let me just take a minute to explain things. I am an American. I’m a female. And I was a young girl when the events took place.

The events are tragic. I’m not saying that they aren’t. But the US government and the media make it out to be some worldwide catastrophe that claimed the lives of millions of people around the world, when really, the event only killed about 2,600 people, which in the grand scheme of things for a large country like the United States isn’t a huge number.

Also, we’re Americans. Not only are we extremely self-absorbed with our ignorance, fueled by the liberally biased media, we’re hardly sympathetic for our victims. We forced unspeakable violence upon the natives when we came here, we killed almost 150,000 people in dropping the atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and we’ve pointlessly murdered innocent people in the Middle East.

I understand that a lot of people died, and I should be respecting them. But while we honor the dead, we can’t have these extravagant 2-hour TV specials reading the names of all these people who died 12 years after the disaster. You don’t see Japan having these insane specials reading off the names of people who died in their terrorist attacks. Yes, that qualifies as a terrorist attack.

I honestly don’t care anymore. Terrorist attacks happen all the time in other countries every day. Just because this one happened in America doesn’t make it any different. It was a terrible thing that happened, but it’s been 12 years. We killed Osama. Why we are still in Iraq, I will never know, but that’s a story for another time. The USA is comparable to a person who still clings to their ex-spouse or significant other years after they broke up.

We have to move on with our lives. Not forget about it completely, but just move on and keep in it the back of our thoughts.


Finally someone says it.


im Canadian and I even felt gulty saying it. but this post is true as fuck.

Here’s the thing about September 11th: It happened 13 years ago. In the grand scheme of things, that isn’t a whole lot of time. The vast majority of the country remembers where they were and what they were doing when this happened. Its personal to us. It will become less personal as time goes on. I remember on the one-year anniversary, news coverage was dedicated to this and it was all anyone talked about. Then we hit five years… ten years… soon to be 15 years. We still hear about it every year, but less so. We’ve grown, we’ve healed, we’re in the process of moving on.

Let’s compare this to Pearl Harbor: the last major attack on our country. People hardly care anymore. It happened almost 70 years ago, it’s in the past. Few people alive remember it or were even alive for it. Its not personal to us anymore. This wasn’t so in the years following the attack. People were still in shock, as we are now. 

Sure maybe not millions of people died. Sure it’s not the worst disaster the world has ever seen. Far from it. And I’ll be the first to admit America has a gigantic ego. However, any loss of life (no matter how small) for such a horrible reason is something we get emotional about, and something we have a right to get emotional about. 

Soon 9/11 will be history, something kids learn about in middle school, just one more thing they have to remember for a test. It will be less and less personal as years go by and we hit more anniversary milestones. Give it time.

Preach it hun.

^^^^^ I still remember the people I lost that day. And yes it’s been 13 years. But that’s not long enough for me to forget them. A lot of us need more time.

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.

"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."

"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.


are dogs even real?





I made a political cartoon for English class about issues in school

It focuses on how teens are expected to make career defining choices with barely any experience, and also how parents often take so much authority that their child’s decision is not actually their own

If this gets some notes then I’ll make a colored version

thank fucking you. this defines me a few years ago really accurately


story time! At college some of us were talking about tattoos we want. Our teacher said “you don’t want to get a tattoo at eighteen because you might change your mind.” I said “I had to decide my entire career path when I was fourteen when I chose my GCSEs. I think I can decide on a bird on my wrist at eighteen.”
