Oh god thank fucking christ.
I usually don’t reblog these, but I feel like some of my followers could probably use the reassurance. I definitely have these kinds of thoughts sometimes.
so i’m not crazy for randomly thinking such thoughts? what a relief!
Edgar Allan Poe had a name for it too: The Imp of the Perverse. he compared the impulses to a demon that urges people to do the wrong thing simply because it can be done
The compulsion to jump from high places is called “l’appel du vide" in French. The call of the void. I think it’s specific to that one instance, but I think it’s a cool phrase for this phenomenon in general.
I think about this with random sharp objects laying around, too. “What if I just jammed this into my eye or throat right now? … oh god WHAT.” Just… fucking christ, brain. Don’t.
Reblogging this again because most people don’t/never know how normal these thoughts are, and that can be a major source of stress. It’s okay. You’re okay. Just, you know, don’t follow through on that shit.
oh man my cousin used to ask me if I feel the family madness this is so reassuring

|Feminists:||Hey. We'd like for women to be treated as equals.|
|Society:||Oh sure. You want "equality" but then you expect men to open the door and pay for meals, is that it? That's not equality! That's special treatment!|
|Feminists:||Um, no not really. You don't have to open the door and pay for our meals. We can do that ourselves.|
|Society:||*gasp* What? You don't want men to open doors for you? Why do you hate nice people? No wonder chivalry is dead! You'd yell at a man for just being polite and opening the door for you?|
|Feminists:||No! We're just saying you don't have to do it just because we're women!|
|Society:||And while we're at it, how come you don't protect male victims of abuse and rape, huh?|
|Feminists:||Actually, we think it's really terrible that men are forced to stay quiet about their abuse because they're worried about not being taken seriously. It's this Alpha Male myth that causes it. Men are abused and raped and they're not helped because men are supposed to be tough and able to handle it. This also goes for men not being able to express emotions.|
|Society:||Oh, so you just want men to be a bunch of pansies then, huh? You hate men for wanting to be strong LIKE NATURE INTENDED THEM TO BE. You'll be sorry when you end up married to some weak, simpering fool who likes to talk about his "feelings"!|
|Society:||Also, you can't have equal rights because women aren't aggressive enough to want higher pay and stuff.|
|Feminists:||HOW ABOUT YOU GO FUCK YOURSELF AND THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON?|
|Society:||Jesus, calm down. No need to be so aggressive.|
