Abusive Expectations - Makes impossible demands, requires constant attention, and constantly criticizes.

Aggressing - Name calling, accusing, blames, threatens or gives orders, and often disguised as a judgmental “I know best” or “helping” attitude.

Constant Chaos - Deliberately starts arguments with you or others. May treat you well in front of others, but changes when you’re alone.

Rejecting - Refusing to acknowledge a person’s value, worth or presence. Communicating that he or she is useless or inferior or devaluing his or her thoughts and feelings.

Denying - Denies personal needs (especially when need is greatest) with the intent of causing hurt or as punishment. Uses silent treatment as punishment. Denies certain events happened or things that were said. Denies your perceptions, memory and sanity by disallowing any viewpoints other than their own which causes self-doubt, confusion, and loss of self-esteem.

Degrading - Any behavior that diminishes the identity, worth or dignity of the person such as: name-calling, mocking, teasing, insulting, ridiculing,

Emotional Blackmail - Uses guilt, compassion, or fear to get what he or she wants.

Terrorizing - Inducing intense fear or terror in a person, by threats or coercion.

Invalidation - Attempts to distort your perception of the world by refusing to acknowledge your personal reality. Says that your emotions and perceptions aren’t real and shouldn’t be trusted.

Isolating - Reducing or restricting freedom and normal contact with others.

Corrupting - Convincing a person to accept and engage in illegal activities.

Exploiting - Using a person for advantage or profit.

Minimizing - A less extreme form of denial that trivializes something you’ve expressed as unimportant or inconsequential.

Unpredictable Responses - Gets angry and upset in a situation that would normally not warrant a response. You walk around on eggshells to avoid any unnecessary drama over innocent comments you make. Drastic mood swings and outbursts.

Gaslighting -A form of psychological abuse involving the manipulation of situations or events that cause a person to be confused or to doubt his perceptions and memories. Gaslighting causes victims to constantly second-guess themselves and wonder if they’re losing their minds.

I think the fandom has gone off their rocker.

Honestly we maintained our sanity longer than I had expected.

"There’s a cure?!" asked the girl that kills everything she touches
"Hey shut up we’re perf" replied the girl that makes clouds. 

For real though. Storm has stopped an entire tsunami before. “Makes clouds my ass” she can conjure lightning and tornadoes and is revered as a god in her tribe. She literally changes atmospheric pressure and that’s how she flies. So fuck you. Storm is flawless.

I think you missed the part where the GIRL WHO KILLS EVERYTHING SHE TOUCHES wants to NOT KILL EVERYTHING SHE TOUCHES and everyone dismisses her incredible misfortune just because the lady who is the AVATAR OF THE STORM won the fucking SUPERPOWER LOTTERY

in America, black people are being gunned down simply for being alive, gay people can’t get married/can’t get jobs, politicians say women are asking for rape, trans people are being murdered every day, Middle Easterns are suspected to be terrorists, white men are defended for shooting up schools, teenage boys are building bombs to murder family and schoolmates and yet people still have the audacity to say this is the land of the free

They say it's twice as deep as Groby Tree is high,
and you can drop a penny in it and make a wish."
I hope that my role hasn’t ended because I wasn’t officially told, ‘That’s it.’ I loved watching it growing up and I’m amazed that young girls have an obsession with River Song. They consider her to be a great, strong role model, which is lovely.

Stupid teenage girls. I know there are at least a few that are actually going for the piece itself, but this just makes me angry. I have always had a very deep love for literature what with having two authors in the family, and I find the antics insulting. It shouldn’t matter who is playing who or what for that matter. I can’t say too much about stupid teenage girls since I’m nineteen, but I’ve grown up and am in my second year of college. So for that, fuck off. Now I’m in a bad mood because of this shit. Okay, RANT OVER. 😡😤😒

Dear Shakespeare-Lovers,
No need to complain about Cumberbatch’s fanbase buying Hamlet tickets.
a) Same as with the demographics of    Tumblr    in general, it probably would surprise you how many of Cumberbatch’s followers are in the 30 to 60 years’ range [ just for example : myself - I am 50 years old ].
b) Many have sat in the audience of Shakespeare theatre productions before. Having an appreciation for Shakespeare and having an appreciation for the acting craft of Mr. Benedict Cumberbatch are not mutually exclusive.
c) When Sir Laurence Olivier played Hamlet, or when Sir Derek Jacobi played Hamlet, a major part of their audiences had come to see those actors in that role, and not just any Hamlet. Why should it be any different with Benedict Cumberbatch, who has years of experience as a theatre actor under his belt ?
d) Regardless of the motivation behind coming, horizons get expanded, and maybe even new interests will get awakened …
e) Even newcomers to the theatre seats can learn theatre etiquette, I daresay most of them possess a natural reticience and politeness anyway.
