What if it doesn’t work out?
Ah, but what if it does.

Real talk, I’d throw a couple in her, even if her song makes me want to kick a small child.
…to understand the allure of Lana Del Rey, but I swear to God, I just don’t get it. She’s mediocre at best. And I mean, I don’t if I can talk because I like a lot questionable artists myself, but she’s just… such a shitty singer/songwriter.
This is probably gonna get tons of Tumblr hate, but don’t care.

THIS IS LITERALLY THE MOST ACCURATE/BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN ON TWITTER.
PATRICK KNOWS US BETTER THAN WE KNOW OURSELVES.

The Treatment of Down Syndrome
Glee’s treatment of Becky Jackson can fluctuate between “pretty empowering,” “totally normal, which is great” and “questionably horrifying” (and I still don’t really know what to make of her inner monologue being voiced by Helen Mirren), but last night’s characterization was just plain nasty. Not only was this oftentimes strong young woman with agency horribly infantilized in “Shooting Star” — she was also literally deadly. I don’t buy for a second that Becky lacks the sense not to bring a gun into school, and I’m appalled that the writers chose to take away her strength as a teenager with Down Syndrome in order to martyrize Sue. Even just from a critical angle, this was just plain bad retconning; we’ve learned that Becky knows right from wrong (and when she does choose the “wrong” thing, it’s about her choosing to defy what’s expected of her). More importantly, Glee has actually taken some strides to try to destigmatize her condition, and this pulled the rug out from under that.
This is the EXACT reason I stopped watching this shit-pile of a show in the middle of season 2.
