We are not the lovable nerdy protagonist who’s lovable because he’s the protagonist. We’re not guaranteed to get laid by the hot chick of our dreams as long as we work hard enough at it. There isn’t a team of writers or a studio audience pulling for us to triumph by “getting the girl” in the end. And when our clever ruses and schemes to “get girls” fail, it’s not because the girls are too stupid or too bitchy or too shallow to play by those unwritten rules we’ve absorbed.
It’s because other people’s bodies and other people’s love are not something that can be taken nor even something that can be earned—they can be given freely, by choice, or not.Your Princess Is in Another Castle: Misogyny, Entitlement, and Nerds, by Arthur Chu (via catholicaramis)
Hey tumblr! Did you know that if you suffer from depression / anxiety or any other mental illness, you can register your dog as an emotional support animal, making it illegal for a landlord to refuse to rent to you? That’s right. No breed restrictions, no weight restrictions, no matter what, they are not allowed to refuse.
This includes cats, rabbits, birds, guinea pigs, etc.!! Go here to register your pet as an ESA :~)
This is a scam.
The website linked (and many others) will sell you fake IDs in for a fee and it literally doesn’t qualify you for anything. Unfortunately, (at least in the United States) emotional support/therapy animals do not qualify as service animals. This means you can very well be legally rejected by a landlord, public transportation service, etc.
Please read this and stop spreading false information that will scam people out of their money. Taking advantage of people with mental issues is one of the most disgusting things you can do.
