I Don’t Always Get Into Tumblr Battles.

But when I do, I apparently do it with people who worship Kirsten Dunst.

I’m never changing my mind on this. The laugh and the “I don’t give off that vibe” and the “some people court that” are plenty of victim blaming for me, even if she was talking about bullying.

And she wasn’t. Please. 

Also, to suggest the question wouldn’t come from a friend and colleague? I don’t know about you, but I’d be more comfortable being asked and answering that from a friend than a complete stranger.

Whatever. Think Kirsten Dunst shits rainbows. I think her statement is victim-blaming.

Seriously.

Jesus.

Wow, this quote seems to be taken way out of context, not to mention how vague it is. There’s a whole lot of extrapolation being done by everyone who’s freaking out here. It’s a shame that we live in a soundbite culture where we can pull one quick phrase from a (WRITTEN & EDITED) interview and pile on the bandwagon to condemn someone. In case you wanted to know what this quote looks like in context,

I feel like you and I are so on the same page about how to approach things. Have you ever worked with a director you didn’t agree with? And if so, what did you do? 
I have, and it takes all the fun out of what you do. You just get through it instead of having a meaningful experience.

What if a director pounces on you while working? Has that ever happened?
No [laughs]. I don’t give off that vibe. I think that you court that stuff, and to me it’s crossing a boundary that would hinder the trust in your working relationship.

That’s it. No mention of rape or anything physical.

Don’t extrapolate. Don’t jump to conclusions. Don’t be an asshole.

If this was a person you knew, the proper protocol would be to ask them further about it and what they meant and then explain why it sounded bad to you. But this is a person you don’t know personally and a noted introvert who’s had trouble with the media. Good luck on getting her to make a statement after all the mass vitriol she’s experienced recently.

Wait, what?

What do you mean she didn’t mention anything physical? The question was has a director ever “pounced” on you.

She laughed and said she “doesn’t give off that vibe” and said people “court that.”

How is that not suggesting that people who are “pounced” on are to blame for someone else’s aggression?

CBO: Obamacare Will Cost Less Than Projected, Cover 12 Million Uninsured People This Year

progressive-politics:

Excerpt from article:

The Congressional Budget Office has released updated estimates on the Affordable Care Act’s impact on both the budget and the health insurance industry. The findings show that the president’s signature health care law is actually growing cheaper to implement, costing the government $5 billion less in 2014 than was previously projected. The law also is projected to cover more individuals than previously believed, owing, in part, to some broader workforce trends.

Holidays.

For the first time in years, I don’t have Patriot’s Day as a holiday.

For the uninitiated, Massachusetts has a state holiday on the third Monday in April. Many people call it Marathon Monday because it’s when the Boston Marathon is held. But it’s not, it Patriot’s Day.

Anyway, my employer is not based in Massachusetts, so holiday for me. On the plus side, I do now have Good Friday as a holiday, so I’m am off tomorrow bitches.

Okay no. Fucking no. You think your sandwich is cute with peanut butter and jelly hearts, fucker? Well you’ll change your mind once you put it together and try to eat it. First you’ll get a mouthful of just bread and disappointment, then when you take another bite your mouth will be assaulted by copious the amounts of sticky peanut butter and sugary jelly and there won’t be enough bread to save you from it. A sandwich like that is what failure tastes like. The pb and j may be shaped like hearts but there’s no love in that sandwich. It’s about balance. Life needs balance, and so does your fucking sandwich. You disgust me. Don’t talk to me until you know how to make a proper sandwich.
