*bully pushes you*

*you push bully back*

bully: wtf you piece of shit, that’s reverse bullying

everyone around you: yeah you cant fight hate with hate why can’t we all just be nice to each other

u know this literally happens right

in schools

for real

kids get suspended for being bullied because they fought back or were considered a distraction to the bully it’s not just a metaphor it’s literally reality

if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao

I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior.  I had a real sword with me, too.  I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion.  Some woman walks by, with her little girl.  The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight.  But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.”  You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?”    And the girl looked around and saw me.  I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood.  So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?”  And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating.  Like she thinks I’m going to say no.  So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her.  And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.”  I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.



This post was good but then it got better

Okay, so let me tell you something.
When I was a little girl, I would watch a lot of cartoons like any other child and I noticed something a lot of other kids around me didn’t seem to notice: All the people in the cartoons with southern accents were the dumb ones. The ones that had no idea what was happening, especially the southern girls. And it hit me that I was a southern girl.
This began to bother me. So much that (especially with the release of Harry Potter and seeing how smart British girls were portrayed as) I actually would try and change my accent. For years, I worked on hiding the way I spoke, not to sound like I was from North Florida (I was actually somewhat successful in that.) I was already smaller and younger looking than the rest of the girls my age, so I definitely did not want to be seen and spoken to as less intelligent just because of of how I spoke. 
As I got older, I realized that it didn’t have so much to do with the accent as it did with the area of origin. It hit me that Southern people were actually thought of as less intelligent and more ignorant than the rest of the USA. I couldn’t understand this. Was it because of the Civil War? That happened 150 years ago, so no. The amount of religious people and conservatives? Maybe.. but there are those kinds of people spread everywhere outside of densely populated areas. So why? 
Its bothered me for a while. Seeing the way my New Yorker family acted around my dad and Florida. I tried to push myself away from it as much as I could because I didn’t want to be ignorant, or closed-minded. I think too, it still plays a small role in my reasoning for why I want to move out of state after college.
Sometimes, I think that maybe I’m just over-reacting. But then I see posts like this one, and I realize that this sort of thinking is still very much alive. 
Now, how the hell are we as a country supposed to be fully accepting of minorities and other sexualities when we still insinuate even a small bit of prejudice over what part of the country people are from??????
Brings my spirits down, ya know?
