- Receptionist: Don't you feel like your generation is just lazy?
- Me: Lazy? I'd say apathetic.
- Receptionist: Isn't it the same?
- Me: No. My generation is criticized and toiled with, and I don't see why not - just turn on the TV and watch what they're feeding us. But my generation is not lazy. My generation fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. My generation fought for womens rights in a fury that hadn't been seen since the 19th Amendment. My generation got our first black President elected. My generation fought for Gay rights for the first time in American history. And with all that, we are apathetic, and that's because things aren't going to be better for us down the road. We are the first generation expected to make less than our parents. We are the first generation to see America lose its status as a super power. We've lived through the worst economic times since the Great Depression, and are forced to take out thousands of dollars in student loans at the same time, all while our college degrees slowly turn into a highschool diploma. We've done plenty, and expect nothing. So no, I wouldn't say we're lazy, just apathetic.
If you compare marginalized people being mean to oppressive groups on the internet to some kind of violent civil war where people are murdered in the streets outside their homes in order to tell people to stop being so loud and annoying about wanting equality: You are an asshole. Go away.
so there’s that scene where clara goes ‘someday, you could just walk past a fez,’ and eleven responds with ‘never gonna happen’
and i bet that someday there’ll be a scene where twelve walks right past a fez and clara watches him and she looks so sad for a moment because it really hits home how much she misses him
