joe is literally my favorite

I will never stop praising Steve Harrington’s character development. He is such a kind individual who deserves all the love in the world. Even after he and Nancy weren’t together, he still loved her and did not spite her whatsoever. Also, may I remind y’all that he did not have to stay when shit was going down. He could have been like “fuck all of you guys!” But he stayed to protect all of the kids. HE HAD NO OBLIGATION TO DO THAT BUT HE STAYED BECAUSE HE IS SUCH A GOOD PERSON! He literally took on a mom role for kids he barely knew. When Billy came looking for Max, Steve protected her and acted like he didn’t know anything, even when Billy started to threaten him. He jumped in front of them when something went wrong. He did not hesitate to put all those kids’ safety before his own. He became like a brother to Dustin, giving him advice on girls, hair care, etc. He isn’t some typical jock that he was made out to be in the first season. He is a hero. He is kind. He is selfless. He loves those kids. If I see any Steve Harrington slander, I won’t hesitate to drag you through the dirt.

GUYS THIS WAS WORTH 80% OF MY FINAL EXAM GRADE FOR OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT AND I GOT AN A

I think my role is to shut up and listen. A lot of white people should shut up and listen. They really don’t know what the African-American experience truly is. When you have people getting shot in their cars for no reason and being put in fucking jail cells and it’s for profit, we have a serious problem, and the first thing you need to do is get educated. Don’t try to do this, like, ‘Blue lives matter.’ Don’t try to do the 'All lives matter.’ Just shut up and listen to the experience. And then move forward after that.
