not degrassi

  • Jimin: I'm not even supposed to like people like you. People who wear black and just hate everything and everyone.
  • Yoongi: I don't hate you. Even if you are one of those people who drinks lattes, and is overly friendly, and who laughs way too loud.
  • Jimin: I have to laugh when I'm around you. I can't really help it.
  • Yoongi: And I have to be better when I'm around you. I can't really help it, either.

“We all have one thing in common - we want to be loved for who we are. We need to celebrate our differences. For instance, I’m gay. I’m not bragging about it but I’ve always been afraid to say it and I’m not anymore. I want this place to be a safe space where everyone feels free to be themselves. Welcome to Degrassi.”

happy international women’s day! (march 8th)

“when i wrote that song, i didn’t even call myself a feminist yet. but i had seen first-hand how women are treated differently. for me, it was just small stuff like catcalls at shows. but the harassment that i’ve gotten lately, it all comes from the same thing. it’s people saying ‘i’m allowed to do this to her because she’s just a girl’. words like ‘slut’ and ‘rape’, they matter. they make us feel devalued and threatened. they choose words that inflict pain, and then they tell us it’s our fault for getting upset about it.”
