“The characters of Rollo [Ragnar’s brother] and Floki [Ragnar’s best friend] were already taken — I thought they were the more interesting characters, a lot more flawed and all that. But Michael knew sort of what I wanted, and I just wanted to make sure that Ragnar had a lot of flaws, and Michael was very available to that idea. I wanted an anti-hero more than a hero. I love that for Ragnar, it’s not about the treasure and all that stuff, it’s about helping out his people. He wants to do it his way for sure, he’s really there to just help out his people and hit a few people in the head with an axe along the way.”  Travis Fimmel

If I was dating you we wouldn't have any sex. Because I'm a giant prude. And we would basically just hold hands and kiss. I don't think I even like to make out. But I would argue with anyone who insulted you. And I would give you advice if you asked. If I didn't have an answer, I'd offer to make up an answer. I would suggest books to read and read your favorites to try to connect to them. I would serenade you 24/7, even if you had a migraine and told me to shut up. And I would quote a lot.

okay i’m in love w all of this

“I’m quite domestic, I like to just stay at home. I do see little rumours on twitter and stuff about fans thinking I’m a robot and I’m not real and I don’t really exist because I don’t really go anywhere, but that’s because I’m quite boring when I have time off. I like to stay at home and just relax and do normal things, chill out with my family. Mainly doing a lot of artwork, stuff like that. Write songs and chill out. I’m just a normal 20 year old, I think. I’m just having fun.”

I think its so easy to misread people and at times we may be prone to form opinions, and also make assumptions on individuals of whom we know very little about. So, this is just a reminder, that we should always opt for kindness - even when it’s not reciprocated - because as Maya Angelou quotes: “Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world, but has not solved one yet.”

Pepper’s given first names were Pippin Galadriel Moonchild. She had been given them in a naming ceremony in a muddy valley field that contained three sick sheep and a number of leaky polythene teepees.

Her mother had chosen the Welsh valley of Pant y Gyrdl as the ideal site to Return to Nature. (Six months later, sick of the rain, the mosquitoes, the men, the tent trampling sheep who ate first the whole commune’s marijuana crop and then its antique minibus, and by now beginning to glimpse why almost the entire drive of human history has been an attempt to get as far away from Nature as possible, Pepper’s mother returned to Pepper’s surprised grandparents in Tadfield, bought a bra, and enrolled in a sociology course with a deep sigh of relief.)

I’m sorry I’m complicated
I’m sorry I’m a pill
I’m sure it gets tiring you always have to tell me to chill
To love me isn’t a walk in the park
But you still love me despite our differences being stark
You keep me anchored through life’s anxiety inducing undertow
I know that you need to lean on me too though
You’ve got a lot on your plate
I will try harder to pull my own weight
Just remember you are my sweetest endeavor
I will love you forever

So, recently there has been a lot of accusations that Hayley is transphobic, homophobic, racist, cissexist & anti-feminist. (Some tweets & posts above) I really just wanted a place to be able to rant about these horrid accusations.

Hayley isn’t homophobic. Just because she is a Christian, just because she believes in God does not make her an automatic homophobe. Quote from Hayley “I respect and admire gay men and women.” She has also said this about gay marriage “The only opinion I have is that I could never look someone in the eye and tell them that they didn’t love someone that they know they love. It’s not my job to judge and it’s not a job I’d want. I love people a lot. All kinds. If we were meant to be the same then we wouldn’t be human.” She has called people out & blocked people for using “gay” as an insult & has always been supportive of gay rights, in fact she’s been supportive of the LGBTQIA+ community as a whole. Also, her best friend/makeup artist & hair stylist, Brian is gay and she supports him & his husband fully, she’s also good friends with Tegan and Sara and she loves them all dearly, she shows that so much.

She isn’t transphobic. She never has been. That “Ovaries before brovaries” tweet is a quote from Parks & Rec so if you have an issue with that, take it up with the writers of the show. Hayley has shown that she supports trans rights, trans workers safety rights, and even praised a band on their video on gender. If she was transphobic I do not think she’d be doing any of that. Also, she isn’t cissexist on purpose, she unintentionally is/was and honestly all cis people are, not just Hayley. 

The whole “she’s racist” is literally just someone talking straight out their ass because there is nothing to prove she is racist, that claim is just absolute bullshit, like the rest of this. Her Christian faith does not make her any of these things, she has stated she has always kept a very open mind with it & has done a wonderful job doing so. Therefore she is not racist.

And now down to the infamous line in Misery Business that people can’t seem to get over, even though it’s been 8 whole years. ”Once a whore you’re nothing more.” Let me remind you, Hayley grew up in a time when the word “whore” & “slut” weren’t taken seriously, by that I mean it was never treated like it is today. It wasn’t treated as a gross thing to call a woman, unfortunately it was “normal” to hate other women back then because a lot of people got taught it. Even I remember being 9 years old at the time & thinking it was just normal & okay to throw those words around. Hayley was also 17/18 when writing that song, here’s a post Hayley made about the song. Yes, the post isn’t an excuse for Hayley to use the word, but people make it seem like she was just out to get a random boy from a random girl. Hayley grew up in the time where there weren’t sites like this & twitter to help people learn & understand that those things are wrong to say about girls, to help teach about feminism. Fact is, she apologised a lot for those lyrics, not just that one line, she’s even said she finds it immature too & has said she’s glad she isn’t ignorant like that anymore. Yet, she is still getting hate for it to this day, how many times does she need to apologise for people to let it go? You can’t sit there and say “Hayley isn’t a feminist bc she said whore 8 yrs ago!!!!” That’s not fair, that’s not right. She grew up, she became aware like we all did, she became educated on feminism & is a very active one now, and let me quote her again, “When someone asks me, “Are you a feminist?” I’m gonna say yes. Cause I’m a girl - why wouldn’t I be?” She promotes healthy self-expression, strong messages to young women & just all women in general, encourages girls to be themselves, date whoever they want, wear whatever they want, do whatever they want & to support each other. The fact any feminist here hates on Hayley for writing that song, specifically using the word “whore” just makes you look bad, you aren’t helping stop misogyny or just petty girl hate, you’re participating in it & helping it continue. She grew up, recognised it was immature & has said so countless of times, move on with her, see who she is now, not who she was at 17/18 years old. Basically- Hayley Williams is a feminist, a very active feminist. The whole “I’m not a feminist because I believe everyone is equal.” isn’t true. Also she’s never said homophobic things.

The last image I included is someone saying to me how Panic! using the word “whore” in “I Write Sins…” is “different” since they used it to show someone else was calling the bride that. It’s the same thing. They used the word to call a woman a whore, just like Hayley in Misery Business, it’s the same. But, I don’t see anyone calling out Brendon/Ryan on it, I mean if you’re gonna call Hayley out on it then you should call them out too, right? And all those other male bands that use the words “whore” and “slut” and other shaming words. But of course they don’t get called out, I have no idea why though. That’s a bit hypocritical & misogynistic don’t you think? Cause I think so since it really is only Hayley getting called out. If you’re gonna call out Hayley for 8 years then at least make an effort to call the other bands out too that happen to be mostly male. Misogyny isn’t cool, it’s not fun, so let’s not do it.

People ask me who am I. The answer? I don’t really know. A few years ago, I would have said I was a girl who loved life. A few months ago, I would have said I was a girl who loved a boy with everything she had. now, I guess you could say I’ve been through a lot and i’ve been broken in too many places and too many ways. I guess you could say i’m just trying to find my place.
