distorte replied to your post: I honestly want to know why we have so many… I feel like this about the entire gamut of reality television, without exception. It has been eating me alive for twelve years. You cannot escape it. I understand that. I find some shows to be less morally offensive than others. I do hate other reality TV shows for their vapidity and uselessness, The Bachelor just...
I honestly want to know why we have so many Bachelors and Bachelorettes because I think it is killing us? Like I think we are all dying and I think The Bachelor is responsible for it. I wish I didn’t think this way, but I do, and it’s hard. But I think in 50 years we will all kind of stare at each other and think, “Why didn’t we stop this when we had the chance?”...

Up until that point, my life felt like a carefully plotted course… I get so happy when my friends are new contributors to BWDR. Yay Bailey!
Today I saw some 7-year old kid on the subway talking into his fake Spiderman flip phone. He was saying things like, “Oh yeah,” and “I see,” and “So there’s that.” His mom asked him who he was talking to. He covered his hand over the bottom of the phone and said, “It’s my personal business.” And his mom was like, “No, really, who...

brightwalldarkroom: I’M REALLY MATURE, BUT EVERY TIME I COME INTO YOUR ROOM I WANNA SLEEP IN YOUR BED. by Letitia Trent With all of the various reactions to Lena Dunham’s series Girls (from adoration to hate to claims of class blindness and racism), it is useful to look back at Dunham’s film Tiny Furniture, a movie that, in 2010, created a mini-version of the uproar that
