"After all I do for you, you lie to me? So you can sneak off with some other girl? That night we played video games… I don’t know what it meant to you, but ever since then, I can’t get the thought out of my head that you’re a good person. That night, I really thought… ‘Player 2’? Is that just you way of saying I could’ve been anyone?"
My mom is a detail oriented, sharp witted, sarcastic woman who needs to know everything about everyone in a conversation otherwise she thinks nothing has been accomplished.
I will ask for the bare bones of the story for the most part and just be a listener, I am more interested in how a person feels in a conversation, the details are not quite as important to me. It drives my mom nuts
My dad rarely speaks in conversation. He’ll go whole meals without talking. Occasionally he’ll make a manly sort of grunting sound. He and mom have only had like three intimate conversations in their 35 years of marriage. He only gets excited about cookies, and even then he just says one word, which is in fact, ‘cookies’
actually, you know what, I’m still pissed at that pole dancing comment so I’m going to deconstruct it
"Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport?" You know why.
"This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever." Yes it is. It’s very sexual. It’s supposed to be sexual. IT WAS MADE TO BE SEXUAL. WHY IS THE SKILL SET DEVALUED BECAUSE STRIPPERS DO IT.
"Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatized as a sexual thing that only strippers do?" BECAUSE IT WAS INVENTED BY STRIPPERS TO BE SEXUAL AND EXCITING. MORE LIKE, “WHY ARE STRIPPERS AND OTHER SEX WORKERS STIGMATIZED AND CONSIDERED SUBHUMAN?”
"I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here." OBVIOUSLY YOU DON’T BECAUSE THEN YOU WOULD RESPECT THE STRIPPERS THAT KNOW HOW TO DO THIS. YOU CAN’T SHIT ON THE CREATORS OF THIS ART FORM AND THEN SAY ‘I RESPECT PEOPLE WHO DO THIS’
How can you make the two greatest assassins in the universe completely useless and boring?
I loved GotG, but this is fantastic and true.
Whenever I say “nobody’s perfect” I always whisper under my breath “except for Laverne cox”

Pole dancing was fucking invented by strippers stop trying to erase the sexual origins of it and somehow make it ‘more dignified,’ Seriously. Go fuck yourself.
