seriously though, imagine if commercials for “men’s” razors staunchly, fearfully avoided ever showing a beard or stubble or any trace of facial hair whatsoever, as if made in a bizarre and inexplicable alternate universe in which the thing their product exists to groom doesn’t exist

just dudes grinnin’ coyly as they mime running razors over their baby-bottom smooth jawlines, eyes glazed over, not knowing what it is they do, or why, knowing merely that they must

best arthur and eames fics | #2 | i’ve got nothing to do today but smile (the only boy living in new york) by gyzym (food gif credit)

“Arthur wants to curl into him and never let go. Arthur wants to do this forever—Arthur wants to get to know every angle of his mouth, every plane of his body. Arthur wants to trace the lines of those tattoos with his tongue and he wants to mock every hideous pair of pajama pants and he wants to work behind the counter of the fucking shop, wants to wake up in the morning and go to bed at night for this, and this, and this.

But Arthur’s never been particularly good at taking what he wants.”

I think one thing you can do to help your friends who are depressed is to reach out to them not in the spirit of helping, but in the spirit of liking them and wanting their company. “I’m here to help if you ever need me” is good to know, but hard to act on, especially when you’re in a dark place. Specific, ongoing, pleasure-based invitations are much easier to absorb. “I’m here. Let’s go to the movies. Or stay in and order takeout and watch some dumb TV.” “I’m having a party, it would be really great if you could come for a little while.” Ask them for help with things you know they are good at and like doing, so there is reciprocity and a way for them to contribute. “Will you come over Sunday and help me clear my closet of unfashionable and unflattering items? I trust your eye.” “Will you read this story I wrote and help me fix the dialogue?” “Want to make dinner together? You chop, I’ll assemble.” “I am going glasses shopping and I need another set of eyes.” Remind yourself why you like this person, and in the process, remind them that they are likable and worth your time and interest.

Talk to the parts of the person that aren’t being eaten by the depression. Make it as easy as possible to make and keep plans, if you have the emotional resources to be the initiator and to meet your friends a little more than halfway. If the person turns down a bunch of invitations in a row because (presumably) they don’t have the energy to be social, respect their autonomy by giving it a month or two and then try again. Keep the invitations simple; “Any chance we could have breakfast Saturday?” > “ARE YOU AVOIDING ME BECAUSE YOU’RE DEPRESSED OR BECAUSE YOU HATE ME I AM ONLY TRYING TO HELP YOU.” “I miss you and I want to see you” > “I’m worried about you.” A depressed person is going to have a shame spiral about how their shame is making them avoid you and how that’s giving them more shame, which is making them avoid you no matter what you do. No need for you to call attention to it. Just keep asking. “I want to see you” “Let’s do this thing.” “If you are feeling low, I understand, and I don’t want to impose on you, but I miss your face. Please come have coffee with me.” “Apology accepted. ApologIES accepted. So. Gelato and Outlander?”

P.S. A lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses have trouble making decisions or choosing from a bunch of different options. “Wanna get dinner at that pizza place on Tuesday night?” is a LOT easier to answer than “So wanna hang out sometime? What do you want to do?”

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
So much this…

When I’m at my worst, just being invited to drive with you while you run errands is often enough to keep me from doing a complete downward spiral, but please don’t guilt people for not being able to hang out… It’s the worst feeling of shame for having depression in the first place on top of worrying that you will lose those you love for being a shitty friend.

Developing the ability to piss other people off (or even to RISK pissing them off) without knuckling under is pretty much the Holy Grail of emotionally abused kids, I think. We are programmed to respond at the first sign of displeasure, and we don’t have the faith in ourselves and our decisions to weather the storm– or even a mild sprinkle– so we tend to freak out as if the world was ending if a cloud crosses the sun. We freak out about the possibility that we’re wrong, that we’re doing the wrong things, that we’re making the wrong choices, that we’ll make someone angry, because there’s this awful certainty lurking at the back of our minds that says “If you do the wrong thing, you will be in TROUBLE.” And being in TROUBLE is the worst thing, ever, because that part of our brain is forever three years old where our parents are our whole world and being in TROUBLE is the end of everything.

It takes a lot of practice to gain that sort of gut-level knowledge that we’re strong enough to handle this stuff and that the world doesn’t end if someone else is angry at us. It’s not an innate quality that some people have and some don’t; people who grow up in non-abusive homes learn it when they’re young, is all, and the rest of us have to learn it when we’re grown up. And it sucks, and it’s not fair, and it’s not fun, but there’s no getting around it, and you can do it, you CAN.

You can piss people off.

You can be wrong.

You can fuck up.

You can do stuff that everyone thinks is weird.

AND IT IS ALL OKAY. The world won’t end. You will still be a good person. And the likelihood is that most of the things you do WON’T be wrong, and WON’T piss people off, and WON’T be up-fuckery, and WON’T be weird, but if it is? The hell with it; fix it, if necessary, and move on.

You guys are all posting cutesy gifsets of Benedict Cumberbatch and his mom and all I can remember is that time she advised him not to use his last name professionally to avoid being the target for reparations lawsuits. For the slaves their family owned. 

Super cute!

a fun trick is to quote the article and then mash it up with Benny’s wikipedia page:

“There are lots of Cumberbatches in our former Caribbean colonies,” he says. “When their ancestors lost their African names, they called themselves after their masters. Reparation cases are ongoing in the American courts. I’ve got friends involved in researching this scar on human history and I’ve spoken to them about it. The issue of how far you should be willing to atone is interesting. I mean, it’s not as if I’m making a profit from the suffering — it’s not like it’s Nazi money.” But the Cumberbatches, he thinks, were “pretty dodgy”.

I mean, it’s not as if I’m making a profit from the suffering 

He grew up in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. His great-grandfather, Henry Arnold Cumberbatch CMG, was the consul general of Queen Victoria in Turkey. His grandfather,Henry Carlton Cumberbatch, was a decorated submarine officer of both World Wars, and a prominent figure of London high society.

I mean, it’s not as if I’m making a profit from the suffering 

Cumberbatch attended boarding schools from the age of eight.[5] He was educated at Brambletye School in West Sussex and was an arts scholar at Harrow School.

I mean, it’s not as if I’m making a profit from the suffering 

After leaving Harrow, he took a gap year to volunteer as an English teacher at a Tibetan monastery in DarjeelingIndia.

But, you know. Its not as if he’s making a profit from the suffering 

And your point is…? Slavery existed, slavery was a thing, people owned slaves. That’s how things were then, that is how the economic system of the first world WORKED. Just because our ancestors owned slaves doesn’t mean we, today, should be apologizing for it. So coming off as hostile toward Cumberbatch because, what? His family owned slaves and this lady is descended from them? That their slavery and his ancestor’s merchant business or whatever forms the foundation of their wealth today, and he should feel bad about that?

Because that’s what it was, a foundation. He’s not making a profit from slavery. He’s made his own money, he’s made his own career and profited from it.

What’s your fucking point?

I’m honestly just reblogging for the lols. What possible lasting effect could centuries of theft, exploitation, mass murder, assault, and sundry other institutionalized oppression possibly have on the perpetrator’s sense of and actual entitlement, AMIRITE??? Fer sher it’s cool to just forget about that. NO BIGGIE, GUYS. REST EASY, YTS. No need to trouble your darling heads considering how some turnip-looking mayo-man happened upon such good fortune in life! Thank goodness for the healing passage of time! Now you can all get back to the serious business of trying to twerk to Macklemore while ironing your khakis.
