13-year-old

With the 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina coming up in a day I’ve held how I felt about this in. Please y'all stop celebrating this day. It makes me REALLY uncomfortable. That day (which turned into MONTHS) wasn’t fun. Celebrating it mocks everything that we went through. You know what Katrina reminds me of? It reminds me that at 13- years old my entire life was changed LITERALLY overnight. I woke up on August 29th and an entire social base that I had was GONE. Friends that I STILL have never spoken to. Family that was RIPPED from me. It reminds me of chaos and bewilderment. That Hurricane was also the FIRST time I realized that people EVEN IN THIS STATE thought that people in New Orleans were violent and dumb. That Hurricane was also the FIRST time I was made aware of my skin color as a NEGATIVE. It was when I realized that racism existed. That Hurricane reminded me that my government didn’t give a fuck about people that looked like me. The years after that Hurricane REMIND me that my hometown is changing day by day. People that come here from out of town “for the culture” of the city and proceed to CHANGE that culture. That Hurricane reminds me of gentrification and the whitewashing of an Amazing Chocolate City. Hurricane Katrina is not something to celebrate. Stop with the parties, stop with the documentaries, stop with the FUCKING KATRINA THEMED SNOWGLOBES. STOP. Give reverence for the people who are no longer with us. Praise the people that came back to a city that was forgotten because they wanted to come home. Please, STOP ASKING ME A BILLION QUESTIONS ABOUT THE WORST YEAR IN MY LIFE. STOP MAKING PEOPLE FROM THIS CITY RELIVE TRAUMA. Pay RESPECT to the people who BUILT this city.

I lost my virginity at 13 and ended up pregnant. I lost the baby and mourn him every day but I still regret that I was so young. So to the anon worried about being a virgin at 13, stay that way. It hurts you more in the long run if you don't. I promise you're not missing out on anything right now xoxo

I hope the 13 year old girl see this. I’m so sorry to hear what happened to you Hun, I can’t even imagine, it must have been terrible for you😔 I hope you start to feel better over time if you aren’t already 💞

I have a lot of girls message me on here or Facebook or tumblr telling me that they would love to wear a bikini or cute lingerie but they have stretch marks so they don’t. I say, OWN THAT SHIT! I’ve had stretch marks since I was 13 years old when I grew from 5'8 to 5'11. Rock. That. Out. Girls. Don’t be afraid to be who you want to be because of something that majority of us have. I love you guys! #nowrongwaytobeawoman #stretchmarks #effyourbeautystandards #everyBODYisbeautiful #honormycurves #unedited

Are you alive after today's episode? Because I'm in pieces

honestly i’m not ok because i can’t stop picturing 13 year old stanley working himself up about even asking mullet boy to come to his party, let alone what his response was if/when mullet boy said yes. what if peter bought him a present??? what if balthazar still has it in a drawer in his desk???

Yeah, I'm 17 and I feel bad for 13/14 year old who are very mature because they are always treated like they are stupid. When they mention they're mature for their age everyone says "you're probably lying" and I just feel so bad for them. I feel like most 13/14 year olds on this site are very mature tbh

i would definitely not say most but some are for sure and it sucks that the mature ones have to deal w that :(

On the 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina

Ten years ago I went to school 5 minutes late because I missed the bus and my mom had to give me a ride to school. We were both glued to the tv. I went to class and the tv was tuned in to CNN. Horrifying images of the storm surge hitting New Orleans flashed across the screen. It felt like 9/11 all over again, the same stone faced silence permeating the room that did on that day.

We watched as people begged for their lives and made desperate attempts to be rescued. Rooftops of houses already inundated with storm  surge topped with black bodies waving anything  that they could find in the air hoping, praying someone could see them and that they would be rescued.

The most haunting image I saw was a rooftop that said “PLEASE HELP US WE ARE AMERICANS”

Was this America? Was this happening to Americans? It might not have clicked then for 13 year-old me but it certainly did later. That day I learned there are two different Americas.

There is the America of The American Dream, the great liberal democracy we all know and love, with liberty and justice for all.

And then there is the other America. The America that has the highest incarceration rate in the world. The America that has police killing black men at a rate that in any other country would be considered genocide. The America that rose to its empire status off the backs of the labor performed by African slaves, and the colonization of indigenous land. The America that has always viewed black life as inferior.

Black lives have never mattered in America and they never will so long as it exists as we know it. It’s a rotten system to the core and the only solution is the complete overthrow of the United States of America and the dismantling of the oppressive social relations that it stands for.

Thanks for maintaining this fun blog! I have a question, how old do you think Marinette and Adrien are? I read somewhere that Marinette might be 13, which I find hard to believe.

Hello! This is a very late reply. I kept putting this off until I noticed more people were asking about Marinette’s age. My answer is a bit long which made me put off this question.

The claim that Marinette is 13 comes from an article by Licensing Made In

Miraculous™ […] follows the adventures of a charismatic young Marinette (13 years old) who magically transforms into a vivacious superhero (Ladybug) …”

I cannot recall any other article that explicitly states her age. However…

In AB International Distribution’s site, the french synopsis contains something of interest (click “French Catalogue”)

Paris, aujourd'hui. Marinette et Adrien sont deux collégiens pas comme les autres. Ils ont été choisis pour sauver Paris !

The description caught my attention because it uses “collégiens”.

In France, there are two secondary school systems: the first being collége, and the second being lycée. Colléges typically have students between the ages 11 to 15. Word Reference equates collége to a US “middle school, junior high, junior high school” or a UK secondary school.

Lycées typically have students between the ages 15 to 18. At the end of lycée, most students take le bac (baccalauréat), which serves as an academic qualification.

The french synopsis refers to Marinette and Adrien as “collégiens” instead of “lycéens”. This means that their age range is most likely between 11 and 15. Marinette being 13 may actually be correct.

The thing that really irks me about that 13 year old pewey shipper getting hate is the people sending her hate are probably the same people claiming that bronies harass the target demographic of My Little Pony. When they're harassing someone in the target demographic of Steven Universe! (My guess is the target demographic for SU is 12-15 year olds.)

“Su fan” has pretty much become a synonym for “Hypocritical egotistical douchebag” so I can’t say I’m surprised.

thank you so much for reblogging that post about 13 y/o's! I'm 13 and I literally don't tell anyone my age because they'll automatically treat me like I'm idiotic and inferior to them when I'm probably more educated than they are. And people are always shocked once they learn my age because for some reason they thought I was 17 from how I carry myself. It's so frustrating that I have to conceal and even lie about my age sometimes to have my opinion be taken seriously like everyone else. +

+ not to mention how in fandoms people think being a 13 year old makes you a fake or a child-like fan. I’ve been in the 5sosfam since 2012 and it’s super uncomfortable when people refer to fans under 15 as though they should’t be in the fandom when I’ve been here since I was 10, and I was probably more mature at that age than they are at 17. Not even “mature” as in “I want to lose my virginity before high school lol!” but mature as in educated, wise, and opinionated. 

omg this makes me really happy oh my god thank you smol anon :’-) i actually reblogged it because i’m really young too and like i know everyone thinks i’m older than i am and when i tell them they do the same thing and its rlly rude so i feel you bro (also if you ever want a friend close to your age, i’m here. i’m not much older than you)

i need advice

alright i’m gonna try and make this short and sweet. basically my 13 year old friend sent nudes to this 17 year old guy who is actually dating her best friend. he’s pretty much cheating on the best friend because he lets my friend call him “daddy” (i feel fucking sick typing this) and he was the one asking for nudes in the first place. she basically sent him pictures of her entire body except her actual vagina. HOWEVER, now she really regrets sending nudes and is scared that he’ll end up blackmailing her. the thing is that they have met in real life but he lives a couple hours away, though he said he’ll end up moving here soon. my friend has only told my best friend who then told her squad (three people, including me) and her mother. her mother is really good friends with the friend’s mother, but she was just very shocked and never said that she would tell the mother. i want to get him arrested/whatever for child pornography, but i’m not sure if i can because there’s no vagina and he’s 17 anyway, therefore not an adult??? yeah, so i would really appreciate if people could tell us what to do (if it helps the legal age for sex is 16)
