no concessions


all for the game + hogwarts houses: neil josten | slytherin

you know, i get it. being raised as a superstar must be really, really difficult for you. always a commodity, never a human being, not a single person in your family thinking you’re worth a damn off the court— yeah, sounds rough. kevin and I talk about your intricate and endless daddy issues all the time. i know it’s not entirely your fault that you are mentally unbalanced and infected with these delusions of grandeur, and i know you’re physically incapable of holding a decent conversation with anyone like every other normal human being can, but I don’t think any of us should have to put up with this much of your bullshit. pity only gets you so many concessions, and you used yours up about six insults ago. so please, please, just shut the fuck up and leave us alone.

To the young people in particular, I hope you will hear this. I have spent my entire adult life fighting for what I believe in. I have had successes and also set backs. Sometimes really painful ones. (..) This loss hurts, but please, never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.

To all the women, especially the young women, who put their faith in this campaign and in me. I want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion. And to all the little girls who are watching this: never doubt that you are valuable, powerful, and deserving of every chance and every opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.

Let me tell you a story that melted my cold child hating heart

Today at work a little boy came in dressed as Kylo Ren with his family to see Rogue One. The family is going about their business purchasing tickets and concessions, filling their drinks and buttering their popcorn, and I’m just standing in the corner watching this tiny dark side loving little boy. Two of my employees were like “but.. Kylo isn’t even in this movie” and I almost smacked them because who cares. I mean, I’m wearing my BB-8 earrings all weekend so back off. Then it’s finally time for the kid to approach and he whispers something to his dad before handing us the tickets. “Go ahead and tell them,” the dad says. Tiny Kylo: “I’m here to see Darth Vader, my grandpa.” And then I died because that was a level of child cuteness I had never encountered before. I almost cried in front of all my employees, but none of them seemed as moved by this encounter so I held my shit together.

I sincerely hope he enjoyed the movie.


Clinton publicly concedes, says she hopes Trump will be ‘successful president’

Hillary Clinton, hopeful Tuesday that she was poised to shatter the nation’s “highest and hardest glass ceiling,” instead Wednesday publicly conceded the presidential race to Donald Trump, saying the nation owed “him an open mind and the chance to lead.”

“I hope that he will be a successful president for all Americans,“ Clinton told supporters, including her staff, as she tried to strike a hopeful note despite what she described as a "painful” loss.

“I still believe in American, and I always will,“ Clinton said, surrounded by her family, including former president Bill Clinton.

In introducing his running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine said Clinton “has been and is a great history maker.”

Several hours earlier, Clinton called Trump, to congratulate him on becoming the nation’s president-elect. However, she did not make an appearance before backers gathered at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center for what was expected to be a victory party.

To the young people in particular, I hope you will hear this: I have spent my entire adult life fighting for what I believe in. I’ve had successes and I’ve had setbacks, sometimes really painful ones. Many of you are at the beginning of your professional, public and political careers. You will have successes and setbacks too. This loss hurts. But please, never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.

and you know hillary didn’t speak tonight because they didn’t have a concession speech prepared. the fact that the *most* qualified woman had to work 500x times as hard as a sociopathic privileged man only to lose is truly Fucked up.
