straight people couldn’t last a day of Real, Actual Heterophobia. they can’t read a joke made at their expense without kicking up a fuss and resorting to queerphobic behaviours, can you imagine what they’d do if heterophobia began actually affecting their lives outside of a small subsection of a fucking website
as corny and cheesy as yousef may seem, he weirdly wants to make people happy…which is weird, cause i hate humanity….
but he was thinkin of a way to brighten a strangers day and came up with an idea of handing a flower to somebody and letting them know they are appreciated…
to anyone…men and women (except children haha, we werent tryinna get arrested or beaten)

and just a lot of things werent workin out
so irvine was a fail.
then we went to USC….figured people were coming out of mid-terms, coming up on finals…school can get rough, maybe a little nice comment could make someones day, or at least make them smile which was the goal.
it was an interesting experience…but never the less, the goal was achieved, many people were genuinely touched, and they truly appreciated the gesture. so it was awesome

the hunger games aren’t amazingly unique or flawless or anything but I think katniss as a character is very important and i think the media misunderstands
we aren’t in it for the cute boys. we’re in it for katniss. thousands of young girls were introduced to an introverted, angry girl born into poverty and watched her become the savior of the world and the media doesn’t seem to understand that she, as a character, is important to girls. not who she dates, but her
