The American collegiate system in one gif set
As much as I dislike this show, this gif set is pretty damn accurate.
Yeah, this show’s pretty bad but this is the most accurate depiction of America’s workplace I’ve seen.
I love this.
“I always get asked, ‘Where do you get your confidence?’ I think people are well meaning, but it’s pretty insulting. Because what it means to me is, ‘You, Mindy Kaling, have all the trappings of a very marginalized person. You’re not skinny, you’re not white, you’re a woman. Why on earth would you feel like you’re worth anything?’”
deciding i was pretty was the best thing that i ever did
one day i was just like
fuck this im pretty
and i was
Some of these might seem obvious, but you’d be surprised. A compliment should probably never include:
- “For a” as in “You’re really pretty for a fat girl”
- “I guess” as in “If you like that dress I guess I like it”
- “such…but” as in “You have such a pretty face, but you need to do something about your weight.”
- “brave” as in “You’re so brave to wear a sleeveless shirt”.
Drop the “for a” and “I guess”. Drop “such”, “but” and everything after, consider adding an adjective.
- You look very pretty.
- I like that dress too.
Any mention of “brave” that is not followed by “for fighting off those wild animals” is a bad call. Try “You look great in that shirt.”
FOR REAL THOUGH! STOP TELLING ME I’M SO BRAVE!
