If you’ve never read Melville’s Bartleby the Scrivener, I implore you to do so immediately because it is hilarious but also disturbing at the same time. Kind of like Erik. Hands down, one of my favorite short stories ever.
I read it during my junior year of high school and instead of writing the essay over it, my entire class turned in pieces of paper that said, “I prefer not to.”
OH MY GOSH my class did almost the same thing! I read it for the first time in my sophomore year of college and the next day, the lecture went something like this:
Professor: Okay, general reactions. What did you guys think of Bartleby?
Professor: Really? You’re going to make me call someone out? Okay, fine then. Um…David. Tell us what you thought.
David: I would prefer not to.
Professor: Don’t EVEN, man.
And literally the rest of the semester, every time she mentioned we had to write an essay, we’d all go, “I would prefer not to.” Obviously, we wrote them and it was all in good fun, but I think she probably had a dartboard with Melville’s face on it at home.
straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bus, pretty much anywhere.
the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.

Okay so this one time in freshman year biology we had a student teacher who thought we were all five. He was like:
"Does anyone know what the word biotic means?”
And we were all just like, “Alive?”
And he goes, “Yes! The word biotic means alive! Can you think of some things that are alive?”
And someone called out “Animals!”
And he was like “Yes! Animals are alive!”
And then somebody called out “Plants!” but I guess he didn’t hear them because he was like “Can you think of any other things that are alive? You eat them in your salad sometimes…”
And I just blurted “CROUTONS.”
