Agent Coulson has taught me that if you deny a character death completely, that character will come back.

When comments are better than the article, Atlantic edition (“The Cheapest Generation: Why Millennials arent’ buying cars or houses, and what that means for the economy”)
Every time someone says we’re a lazy and entitled generation I’m going to show them this
They should be happy most of us haven’t moved to the moon yet

I keep having conversations like this with my parents. For their generation, their entire identity was tied to signs of success like owning a home and having a nice car. For my generation a mortgage is nothing but a ball and chain. People tell me all the time “Oh you should have bought that condo you’re living in!” Oh yeah fucking great idea. Then I’d have MORE debt and, if i ever had to leave and rent it out - the responsibility and potential liability for maintaining it. My generation doesn’t know where we’ll be in 5 years. We dont’ know where we’ll be NEXT year. Why would we want to chain ourselves to massive financial investments that may not be able to go with us, and are - thanks t o the still shitty housing market - not that great of an investment anyway?
A catcall is entirely about reminding you that you are not yours. The purity myth is entirely about reminding you that you are not yours. The fetishization of female purity in a world where catcalls are an acceptable form of communication telegraphs one thing very clearly:
“Women, stop sexualizing yourselves—that’s our job, and you’re taking all the fun out of it.”
The sexualization of women is only appealing if it’s nonconsensual. Otherwise it’s “sluttiness,” and sluttiness is agency and agency is threatening."
