clarabel is really opening up to me. #nofilter
The thing that teen girls don’t want to hear, which is universally true, is that there is no such distinction between “predators” and “not predators” here. Every 28 year-old man who has an even vaguely romantic relationship with a girl in high school is a predator.
teen boys are the scum of the earth. fuck them for practice if you’d like, use them for their lunch money and make them buy you nice things, and don’t listen to them at all. actually men until the age of maybe 28 (being generous here) are all fucking scum who don’t have their shit together and i’m usually embarrassed to be in the same room as them.
ok teenage boys are terrible true but “men are awful until age 28” is really really bad advice to give a teenage girl i feel like? at least without a caveat of “any man in his late 20s who wants to date you, a teenage girl, is a predator and much much worse than a literal teenage boy”
I have been thinking about this all day and I have decided that men, if anything, only get worse after 28

taylor swift is like that aunt that tries to be “hip” with the young’ns and “with the times” and then asks you what does bae stand for and after you tell her she starts calling everything bae even the lamp next to the couch
HEY YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE LAMP NEXT TO MY COUCH AND I WILL HAVE YOU KNOW THAT IT IS, IN FACT, VERY MUCH BAE.
STOP PUTTING SIDNEY CROSBY IN A POSITION TO INTERACT WITH CHILDREN MY UNSEEDED UTERUS CAN’T HANDLE IT
THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY
at some point along the line, advice and support giving has become a kind of way to enhance your status. it attracts people who want to look good to others and - probably even more crucially - feel good about themselves.
which means it attracts the worst kind of moralizing, condescending shitheads, and the worst part is that because of the nature of the task they’re performing, they can often hide behind a massive wall of pseudo-empathy that makes it really hard to call them out without looking like an asshole yourself.
why the actual fuck you would consider yourself capable or qualified to be giving advice - to be soliciting people into asking you advice - when you are incapable of wide-ranging empathy is a question for the fucking ages and one that regularly makes me foam at the mouth with frustration.
