People run from rain but
sit
in bathtubs full of
water.

Charles Bukowski (via bittersweetsongs)

Wow bukowski so profound do you also bathe fully clothed you dickhead. “Oohh isn’t it funny that a person will eat when they’re hungry but will duck if you throw an apple at their face”

that smile when you know you’re getting away with something

You know how when you’ve decided to tell somebody something, you sometimes plan it out in your head and rehearse it, even if it’s just a single sentence all the way up until the moment you say it? But even then you don’t really think you’re going to actually say it until suddenly your mouth is open and saying the words you were practicing? You end up feeling like you’re another confidant to this person who technically is you, alongside from the original person you were telling. 

It’s a strange sensation.

stop saying leg shaving is empowering because ‘you choose to do it’.

women don’t actually ‘choose’ to shave their legs, maybe you don’t MIND shaving your legs or you like having hairless legs, that’s fine, but you didn’t choose that because you were never given the choice of ‘shave or not shave’

you can’t really say you chose something when you were only given one option 

Actually sometimes it is a choice. I’ve definitely gone in shorts and dresses and swimsuits without shaving my legs before and not given a single fuck. And sometimes I’ve done that and felt really self-conscious. But then again, sometimes I feel the same way about wearing short sleeves or having my hair done up or walking barefoot in public. 

No, I’m not going to argue that there isn’t pressure sometimes to shave your legs, and I’m not going to say that that isn’t a significant part SOMETIMES of whether or not to shave, but arguing that shaving is not a choice that you decide to make because society’s gender standards approve of it is the same as saying that showing cleavage or wearing short skirts and heels isn’t a choice because it also conforms to society’s gender standards.

So don’t you dare tell me what is or is not my choice. And, yes, when you use words like “always”, “never”, “everyone”, or “women” in such a way that it is an absolute, you are telling me directly that you are speaking for me, as part of that group. 

And how, exactly, is “you like having hairless legs” indicative of how you are being forced to shave? If I didn’t like having hairless legs I wouldn’t bother. Sometimes I don’t, sometimes I do. Sometimes I go along with society’s expectations for my gender because they happen to align with my particular life decisions, and you can’t say that I was “forced” to do it.

I really don’t see how I was only given one option here. And I really don’t see why a significant segment agreeing that they enjoy something, regardless of whether or not men or society approve of it, means that we lack the ability to decide for ourselves. “Feminine” and the things often associated with it in modern western society does not mean weak. Women who don’t shave their legs are not the only ones to have made a choice.

Original 1980 French Cast - Les Amis de l'ABC

I think it’s very important that we all remember just how hilariously disco the Original French Concept orchestration is. I just imagine Enjolras singing this and groovily swaying his head and sexily smirking at the camera. And disco lights, obviously.

I love the concept album so much you always know Enjolras is somewhere nearby when the disco starts. Every. Single. Time.

Reblogging on Request: DISCO ENJOLRAS.

My fave thing about disco Enjolras: guessing they did it that way because, like, so I’ve gathered from meta that the Brick posits him as the priest of the glorious revolutionary tomorrow? And at the time the concept album came about, disco was probably the most futuristic music the composers could imagine. Like his sheer force of personality forces the score into anachronism.

Which kind of suggests that if the concept album had been written today, his every appearance would be intro’d with dubstep:

"LAMARQUE IS DEAD"

WOM WOM W-W-WOMMMMMMMM

The best part is you can do it in any era. In the later 1980’s, it’s like WHY IS THE SCORE SUDDENLY ALL NEW WAVE DANCE POP, OH WAIT PROBABLY ENJOLRAS IS ABOUT TO SING ABOUT THE FUTURE.

In the 1910’s, Enjolras walks on and SURPRISE RAGTIME PIANO SOLO.
