Happy 24th Birthday, Kristen Stewart (April 9th, 1990)
"You can’t really define why someone’s cool."
1) Stop slut-shaming
2) One wrong decision doesn’t make someone a bad person, or bad at their profession, or unworthy of my interest.
3) You’re not a saint. I bet you’ve lied to someone you love before. Does that mean you’re not allowed to have anyone care about you, because you’re a terrible person for lying that one time about that one thing? No. You made a mistake. If you don’t learn from that mistake, and repeat it ad nauseam, then yes, people can judge you and tell you you’re a terrible person. Because you are. But if you recognize the error in your action and work to rectify it, then you’re a goddamn human being worthy of respect and admiration, because there are always going to be people going, “Why do you like her? She did this terrible thing one time, she’s awful.” People who won’t give you a chance to redeem yourself. And if you rectify your actions DESPITE these gross people who won’t give you a chance, then you’re terrific and worthy and I’m proud of you.
4) I hate that I have to explain this, because it’s like you’re living in some weird bubble where no one around you has ever made a mistake they regretted and wanted to atone for. What kind of world are you living in, that you can judge someone like this? Who the hell are YOU, anyway?
I shouldn’t be the superhero’s girlfriend. I should be the superhero.
