One thing I hateon tumblr is that even me talking about my mental illness on my personal blog is romanticizing mental illness like no I'm allowed to talk about it...
I’m American and we have this incredible stigma against talking about any emotion beyond a sort of bland happiness, and I think that’s probably part of what motivates a lot of the “don’t talk about being sad or feeling empty or strange or alien, you’re just trying to be special!”
So yes I agree, anon.
passion is intelligent and beautiful and way underrated. fuck sadness and aloofness and apathy being associated with intelligence, and fuck world weary assholes who don’t get that and decide to romanticize the feeling of being disconnected and empty
I dunno, I’m pretty passionate about how sad and alienated I feel.

This is some fucked up game theory shit.
this girl just shared an article in class where it’s saying that blood transfusions in dracula are a metaphor for sexual penetration and blood is semen and this is why people outside of academia don’t take academic writing seriously and is it too late for me to quit institutionalized academia and just go rogue at this point
So Dracula is sucking semen out of women?
Dunno about the semen part, but I have seen writings saying dracula was very sexual. The bite was an act of penatration, and women at the time were so covered up that seeing the neck was viewed as a very erotic sight (actual mention of genitalia was still extremely taboo).
Sometimes I think I would have done well as a professional academic. It looks like 1% work and 99% pulling it out your ass.
Victorian women’s fashion didn’t cover up the neck until the late 1890s when women’s fashion was influenced by sports clothes. In the 1850s necklines for evening wear were worn low and draped, this was then lost in the 1860s in favor of dresses that were so tight across the waist and buttocks that it was difficult to move.
So I’m thinking you wouldn’t have done well as an academic because your comment is dumb as fuck.
