this picture is very offensive to me because 

1. hold on to spinning around, confetti falls to the ground, may these memories break our fall. will you take a moment, promise me this, that you’ll stand by me forever but if God forbid fate should step in, and force us into a goodbye if you have children some day, when they point to the pictures, PLEASE TELL EM MY NAME, tell them how the crowds went wild tell em how I hope they shine etc. 

2. she’s literally waving goodbye??? like where is she?? what is she doing??? when are we gonna see her again??  how long will her hair be the next time she appears??

“Didn’t you see The Graduate?”

A motivational speech.

“I was the girl who didn’t get invited to parties. My friends turned into the girls who stood in the corner and talked about me. But as soon as I picked up a guitar…I literally played until my fingers bled. My mom had to tape them up, and you can imagine how popular that made me: “Look at her fingers. So weird”. But for the first time in my life, those girls could say anything they wanted about me, because I was just going to go home after school and write a song about it.“

so i reached a goal this week and i decided to make a follow forever because they’re fun and i love you guys so much

if you’re bolded, you’re one of my fave people or blogs or i just really admire you a hella lot but tbh you’re all a gift to the world. ps not everyone is necessarily mutuals with me i just love you okay

Darryl Ayo (Press (A) To Talk), Ron Wimberly (Lighten Up), C. Spike Trotman (Iron Circus Comics), and Whit Taylor (The Fabric of Appropriation). Moderated by Keith Knight.

Hello. I’m here to talk to you about a very important issue.

3 years ago Taylor did an interview for Rolling Stone. It’s a really great interview, you should read it, but one thing Taylor said really hit me.
She talked about having kids, and then talked about a nightmare she has:

“I have a kid and the paparazzi is taking pictures, and it’s scaring my baby. And I know that I caused it, and I can’t figure out how to stop it” 

This was the day I realized how horrible the paparazzi is and the day I stopped reblogging or posting candids (we’ll talk about that later), but after Taylor liked @whit-tay13‘s post I decided it’s time for me to speak up.

Let’s look at 2 pictures I found from the last month.

You can CLEARLY see how much she hates the paparazzi in the first picture. I mean, this intense stare can kill a man.
It’s less obvious in the second one, but after I showed it to a couple friends of mine who know Taylor as good as I do, they agreed that you can see she’s annoyed by this whole situation, and I’m sure you can see it as well.

And these are even worse.

She needs to hide behind umbrellas and bags. Try imagining how it feels for her. This was taken when she was with Selena (you all remember the harness). All she wanted to do was to spend some time with her friend and instead she needs to hide behind her purse. It’s just horrible. And of course there was this one time that she hiked a whole trail backwards just to avoid the paparazzi.

And lets not forget about these videos!
This is just crazy. They follow her to HER OWN HOUSE. This violates her privacy in so many ways.
The hike one wasn’t the only time Taylor walked backwards to avoid the paparazzi. There’s this video where she walked backwards again. 
I think this one is the worst. All she tried to do was have a nice lunch with her friend, but instead there were paparazzi photographing and documenting her every movement. And her response just says it all. In the end of the video, when she notices the paps, and you can see in her face how annoyed and frustrated she was.

And I’m not even done yet.

Let’s talk about this one. I trust Calvin and I trust his driving skills. If Taylor does, who am I to judge? But when you’re being followed by a camera crew, you can’t help but being distracted from driving, even just a little. You drive faster and recklessly, Taylor said it herself a few months ago. And you can see that they noticed the paps, because Taylor is pointing right at the camera. Taylor’s safety is more important to me than anything.

This is the last one I want to talk about:

Taylor took The 1989 World Tour crew to a vacation, and all she wanted to do was have fun, and she couldn’t even leave her room because of the paparazzi. Again, think about how this might feel for her. Imagine going on a vacation in a beautiful island and not being able to leave the room. I feel so bad for her.

Now let’s talk about the real question-

What can we do to stop it?

The answer is that I don’t know. I have absolutely no idea. The paps get their money from selling the pictures they take to entertainment websites, and there’s nothing we can do about that. But there might be something we can do to make Taylor feel better, and this is the part where I’m going to talk about not reblogging or posting paparazzi pictures.

I don’t know about you but for me, posting those pictures feels like supporting the photographers, giving them my approval to keep doing that. And even the thought of supporting someone who makes Taylor feel this way disgusts me. I never talked to Taylor, and I don’t know if it would actually make her feel better, I’m just guessing. But I can tell you from experience, it makes me feel better to know that I don’t support them, and over the course of the last 3 years, it happened only a couple of times that I wanted to reblog something and didn’t because the post had paparazzi pictures.

Now it’s time for you to make your own decision. Either you do the same thing I did, and stop posting those pictures and supporting the paps, or you keep doing it, which is fine as well. This is your decision. But please, just think about it. And I would appreciate it a lot if you can reblog this so other people can see and make this decision as well.

Thank you for your time.
