Anonymous asked: What does 87% mean?
Yesterday there was a general election in Sweden. 13% of the Swedish population voted for a racist, homo-and transphobic, anti-feministic party, making it the third biggest political party in Sweden.
But 87% voted against them, and it has become a trend in social media to write 87 or 87% on your hand, take a selfie and post it online.
It’s just a small way of showing that we stand together, that we are strong and that we will not let these idiots have their way.
Just one small example of what this party stands for: they want to stop immigration. Especially Islamic immigration.
Now replace “muslims” with “jews” and it’s easy to see a big problem growing here. But 13 % of our population apparently doesnt see it that way.
I just dont understand how we could get here. I am furious, frustrated, disappointed, disgusted and ashamed.
And I hear people saying “stop complaining, it’s only 13%!”.
Only 13%? ONLY 13%??…. I can barely control my anger when I hear that.
When are we supposed to start complaining? when they’ve taken over Sweden?
ugh… I’m pissed off, and worried about my country’s future. But I will not sit back and watch it all go to hell. I will fight. We will fight.
That is what 87% means.
Anonymous asked: i need advice. I really want a mohawk for a while now, not to show off or to be in centre of attention but purely becuase of myself. But there's a problem, my mom. She thinks I'll embarass her and that I'll lose my 'good student' reputation, she basically told me that I make and idiot of myself and that it's not normal for a girl my age (15) to look like that. I want it more than anything and I don't care what people but I don't want to hurt my mom, any advice? thanks xx
Be who you are, do what you want. Show your mom that your hair wont change who you are for the worse. Show her that you’ll still be a good student, and that you wont make a fool out of yourself.
If she’s embarrased it’s because she chooses to be. Show her that she doesnt have to, that she can choose to feel proud that her child has the courage to stand out- and stand tall.
I know it’s hard, and you dont want to hurt her. But you have to be true to yourself. It’s the only way to live. You said it yourself, this is for you, not for somebody/something else.
My mom had a hard time with my hairstyle in the beginning too. It took some time, but she came to realize that feeling embarrased was a choice she made for herself, and that it had nothing to do with me. We are not the problem, our hair is not the problem.
My mom had low confidence, and she didnt want to be seen by the world. She wanted to go by unnoticed. But me looking the way I do made her stand out too. It was hard for her, but she learned from it and grew stronger.
By getting this hairstyle you’ll probably put your mom in the same position, and she can either learn from it or not. But that is something that you cant control.
You can however be true to yourself, and lead by example. Show your mother and all the other people around you that you can be weird and proud and still be a good and succesful person.
I hope it all works out for the best for you and your mom!
Anonymous asked: What kind of paint do you use for your leather jackets?
I use the same paint I use for my Warhammer 40k figurines. I think they’re called Citadel. But I use Tipp-Ex for the white stuff.
and I got some free stuff! a cap, stickers and energy drinks.
(I really do look awful in caps xD)
I really cant stand people who dont know how to argue properly, but that does everything possible to start debates. People that dont know that to be a good debater you need to be able to argue for BOTH sides, even the one you feel strongly against.
You cant just bombard people with your opinions and resort to personal attacks when people dont comply. I mean sure, I expect that behaviour from kids and teenagers, because they havent fully learned yet. But if you’re an adult (20 and older) and debating is an interest of yours then I expect more from you. I expect you to be respectful, and to educate yourself on the subject at hand, not just the side you represent.
Ugh I dont know. I just get frustrated sometimes.
