You seem like a really beautiful, creative, funny and intelligent person. I have a major friend-crush on you. ^_^ I hope this does not appear creepy. You seem like you would make an awesome friend.

thank you so, so much for this wonderful message and all those amazing compliments!<3
Anonymous asked: How are you so fluent in english and swedish? Do a lot of people in sweden speak both? Do you know any other languages? What do you speak the most? What do you speak when you are with your friends? Do people frequently come up to you and ask to take a picture with you like what happened in the documentary you were in? Sorry for all the questions you are just so damn interesting
well I was… 8 I think, when I started learning english in school. but to be honest, at that time I already knew a lot of english. also, it wasnt until I was 10 that I realized that not everybody thinks in english. I thought that everybody spoke different languages depending on what country they lived in, but that everyone in the whole world thought in english :P but I dont have any family members that speak english, so I guess I just picked up a lot of it from tv and movies. I mean, my english was far from perfect at that age but I could still make myself understood.
I prefer to speak english, and I still think in english :P but I kinda mix swedish and english a lot, especially with my friends. like, I dont speak “swenglish” (swedish and english words put together in really awful ways xD), but I say one meaning in swedish and then several in english, and vice versa. I dont really control it, it just happens. sometimes swedish comes out of my mouth, sometimes english :) but when I’m talking with family members or strangers I always speak swedish.
when it comes to strangers wanting to take photos of/with me, that really only happens when I have my mohawk up. but then it happens aaaaaall the fucking tiiiiiiiime. it can be quite annoying sometimes, like for example when me, my boyfriend and a friend of ours sat down on a bench just to take a break from walking and shopping, and people started gathering around us and formed a huge crowd, and they were kind of lining up to sit down and take photos with us. it took us aaaages to get out of there! but people coming up to me and asking for a photo and actually TALKING to me is always more fun than people just sneaking around and taking photos of me when they think I wont notice. that just feels strange and rude.
and dont worry, it was nice to get so many questions at once! thank you! :)
Anonymous asked: your right though, its not just shitty in russia, its shitty everywhere else. i think its because russia got the whole olympics thing going on. but i also feel that people now-a-days are looking for excuses to get offended
well there certainly are people that like to argue about stuff, and seek out opportunities to speak their minds. and there’s always the kind of people that try to escalate the discussion. but I dont agree that people in general are looking for excuses to get offended. I mean, you dont have to look for it. getting offended isnt something you can control. it’s an emotion, if you get offended then you are offended. simple as that.
what bothers me the most about this kind of stuff is that a lot of people go right into attack-mode when voicing their opinions. you know, the kind of people that seek out discussions but then dont actually discuss anything and instead just runs over everybody else’s opinion. those people has put me off the whole thing and I very rarely share my opinions on the internet. when I do it’s mostly because I’ve gotten an ask about it here on tumblr. or when I’m annoyed. like I was yesterday, and still am, because my dash is full of “russia sucks, the rest of the world ruuuuules” kind of posts.
I’ve lost 20 followers since I reblogged the russia/skittles/taste the rainbow thing. first time ever that I get a big drop like that. oh well.
Anonymous asked: What do you mean by that? Are you against gay rights? You know, basic human rights? Or are you saying that this is just another distraction and most of the world is still full of shit and still not accepting gay as a natural thing?
I mean that I think that post is disrespectful to all lgbt+ people all over the world. The fact that Russia is in the spotlight right now doesn’t magically make the rest of the world all loving and accepting. Everything that’s going on over there doesn’t somehow make every other crime against gay(=human) rights everywhere else less awful and less real.
I know that’s not what the people who make those kinds of posts mean to do, but I still feel like they’re giving people an excuse. Like “Hey we’re not so bad, I mean at least we’re not Russia!”.
Just, the world isn’t tasting a rainbow. And it’s not projectile vomiting a rainbow onto anyone either. Let’s not pretend that it is, not even for a second, not even for a “funny” tumblr post.There’s nothing to “love” about this situation.
i love how russia has all these anti-lgbt+ laws and the rest of the world’s just like
These posts really fucking annoy me.
Yeah it’s fucked up in Russia but the rest of the world sure as hell ain’t tasting no rainbow.
“But you’re not fat, don’t say that,” he responded.
Tell that to the hips that got caught in a turnstile yesterday and everyday that she forgets to turn sideways. Tell that to the stores that stop at size 12 (or size 10 if she wanted to look her age). Tell that to the small woman rolling her eyes beside me on the subway as my booty spills over into her seat. Tell that to the holes my inner thighs have rubbed into every pair of jeans I own. Tell that to the rolls on my back & the crevices in my ass.
Tell that to the silence at the end of your sentence that should say “because fat people are ugly, because if I think you’re attractive you can’t be fat because I’m saving fat to degrade a woman two sizes smaller than you but with a flatter chest & a spare tire. Because you’re not fat is a compliment even when it’s not true because what I’m really saying is you don’t repulse me the way fat people are supposed to repulse me. Because I get final say on your body, not you & I’m giving you a pass for the same dimpled ass I laughed at on another woman yesterday because your waistline is smaller than hers and a normal woman would just be happy with that.”"
