Mixed two requestes: “Hiii lovely, don’t know if you’ve written one like this before but maybe an imagine where y/n really likes Kendall but she’s insecure about herself and doesn’t think she likes her back because of the other models that always surround Kenny? Sorry for the awkward wording, hope you’re well :) xx” requested by poshspicehaz. And “Hi I love your imagines and I was wondering if you could do an imagine where you and Kendall aren’t dating but people keep flirting with you and you flirt back so she gets really jealous and pissed off? In the end you get together tho :) Thanks” requested by anon.
“Are you going to stare at her all day and do nothing at all?” You hear Harry Hudson say.
“Yep,” He rolls his eyes and sits next to you. Kendall and some of the girls are swimming at the pool and you can’t help but stare at her. But not in a pervert way, more like in a loving way.
“You know, as your friend I think you should say something to her,”
Ah yes. It’s that time of year again when this stupid and judgemental meme pops up on my social media or it is sent to me purposely as I post about the fun I’m having at EDC. This meme in particular was obviously made by someone who has never attended Electric Daisy Carnival. It’s right off the bat condescending and insulting.
“Pull me over I have drugs”, such a gross and misinformed stereotype. Drugs are in EVERY SINGLE MUSIC SCENE. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. Weed and alcohol are still drugs incase you forgot and caffeine is also considered a drug and they are readily available everywhere. Whether some one does them or not is absolutely NONE of your business if it’s not affecting you directly.
“I have shitty taste in music”, no I don’t. I value and appreciate a different form of music that you do not regularly hear being regurgitated over and over again on the radio or whatever Hot Topic tells you to like. EDM is different and there’s nothing like it. Because radio stations wouldn’t play EDM or sell them at record stores, distribution had to go underground and make own shows and events long before social media became the norm. And in the underground concerts and events, the rave culture began, PLUR was created, and has been thriving for 30+ years. And even now, it’s still not welcomed or accepted in the mainstream.
“I make stupid financial decisions” first of all, HAH! I have been going to EDC since 2007 and this weekend is my 10th one. Every year, I can afford my ticket, my travel expenses, and my hotel just fine. You know, having a job and all helps out with that, and I’m pretty sure the other 125,000+ people there have jobs too. “Paying $200 to watch some people press ‘play’” Actually no, djs create their own music and mixes and remixes for every show and during the show as well. They engage with the crowd, set up visuals and designs to play during their sets, and really, truly care about their fans. BTW, EDC tickets are up to $450 for the 3 night event. Sorry you can’t afford to go. Maybe you should have made better financial choices huh?
When I first attended EDC 10 years ago, I knew nothing about EDM or the rave culture, but I’m an open minded person and I don’t judge others until I can experience something for myself first hand. That night was huge game changer for me and I really learned what PLUR was, peace, love, unity, and respect. The rave culture is so amazing, accepting, and non judgemental people I have gotten the pleasure to get to know. I have met some many great people and some of my best friends there. Not once have it ever felt ashamed of being who I am, of my body or gender. Do you want to know who the most judgemental people I have ever met are? Cosplayers. I enjoy cosplaying but I can’t stand most of the people in the scene. They’re clique-y, get over protective of a character that is 'theirs’, body shame on each another, spread rumors about each other, and judge your costume in how accurate it can be all while trying to sell prints because they couldn’t make it as a model the old fashioned way. I have never met people like that in all the years I have been raving. When I run into other Harley Quinns at a rave we run up to each other, hug, dance, trade kandi, and take pictures. There’s no competing over who has the better costume or more followers, it’s straight, pure fun and I can nerd over a character i love with a stranger while listening to a set.
You want to know another post I’ve fact about raves? They are SO MUCH MORE SAFER than attending a bar or club. Not once have it ever felt threatened or unsafe there. I have never been verbally assaulted or groped by a man there like I have at a club because I turned them down. The EDM community is an incredibly respectful group of individuals and help each other out. The police the attend EDC absolutely love working the event. They do a lottery to draw names to see if they can work it. I see cops walking around enjoying themselves and taking pictures and having the attendees come up and dance with them, give them kandi and thank them for working the event.
Bottom line, EDM may not be for you and I respect that and will never shame you for what you like and enjoy, but don’t judge me on what I spend my hard earned money on and music taste, especially if you have never attended before. So while you spend your Sunday night watching reruns or doing chores, I’m going to be dancing with my rave family from dusk til dawn on the Las Vegas Motor speedway and you are always welcomed to join us under the electric sky
Here’s Lena Dunham’s apology to Odell Beckham Jr. (key points in bold) …
I owe Odell Beckham Jr an apology. Despite my moments of bravado, I struggle at industry events (and in life) with the sense that I don’t rep a certain standard of beauty and so when I show up to the Met Ball surrounded by models and swan-like actresses it’s hard not to feel like a sack of flaming garbage. This felt especially intense with a handsome athlete as my dinner companion and a bunch of women I was sure he’d rather be seated with. But I went ahead and projected these insecurities and made totally narcissistic assumptions about what he was thinking, then presented those assumptions as facts. I feel terrible about it. Because after listening to lots of valid criticism, I see how unfair it is to ascribe misogynistic thoughts to someone I don’t know AT ALL.
But really what Dunham did to Beckham is no different than what feminists do to all men on a daily basis for the exact reason she describes above.
In that light, this wasn’t just a feminist apology to one individual - it was a feminist apology for the behaviors of the movement to all men who have been treated likewise.
Thank you Lena. Keep up the good work now that you acknowledge the ugly truth about yourself and the movement you promote.
