I have to get my thoughts out on this situation.
If all of the allegations and everything reported is true, I know two things.
1. Sarah, I’m proud of you for getting out of that.. No one deserve to be abused, in any way. No matter how much the person has helped you or cared for you in the past.
2. Now, I am in no way defending Matt. He is absolutely wrong for laying hands on Sarah. There is no excuse for every abusing your significant other, or anyone for that matter BUT It’s obvious he needs help.
Let me explain..
It’s been reported that Sarah filed because he just got out of rehab. That explains a few things. The main being that he is not in the right state of mind. Whether it be drugs, alcohol or mental illness he needs help.
It’s easy to sit here and just attack Matt and I understand.
Growing up in an abusive home, I know how easy it is to just blame the abuser and wish harm upon them only not to contemplate the reason for the abuse.Based on twitter, and my long time following him on there and other social media, it was evident to be a long time ago that something was off. Matt seems very short tempered and depressed. Although he was always there for Sarah publicly, as well as helped her in her time of need I always had a feeling he had something going on within himself. That is now being confirmed by the accusations being made by the articles and court documents in the case.
I know Sarah is a victim here, I do. I commend her for having the courage to leave the relationship and make a better life for herself
I just don’t think sending death threats to someone who is reportedly already suicidal is necessary. It is more harmful than helpful.
Fans, please let the courts handle this and be respectful. Not all of the facts are known. Let this be handled privately.
This is just my opinion on how I see it based on the articles, court documents, and facts we’ve seen such as tweets and other posts,
as well as personal experience.
I wish Sarah nothing but happiness and hope she finds someone to treat her right.
I also hope this is all a wake up call for Matt to get help in whatever way necessary.
Semi-friendly reminder that for fuck’s sake, Jeff Davis did not kill off Allison because he’s evil and hates the character and had no plans for her past season 3B.
He wrote her an epic and emotional death because Crystal Reed asked to leave the show.
#Jeff Davis is not the antichrist of fandom#like I see people complaining all the time that Allison deserved so much better and was so wasted#and I’m like ARE WE WATCHING THE SAME FUCKING SHOW OR DID YOU PUT IT ON MUTE AND START PLAYING WORDS WITH FRIENDS OR SOME SHIT#DID YOU MISS ALL OF HER CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT IN SEASONS TWO AND THREE#DID YOU MISS HER JOURNEY ENTIRELY#do you actually think about things at all#or do you just get mindlessly bitter?
#repost and save someone a LOT of struggles deleting stuff because this actually works. I did it with iOS 7.
whitecolonialism told me this
how do boys actually dry their ducks after they shower like
do you just grab it in the towel and roll it between your hands like a dough snake
or do you swing it around to air dry
I need to know

Are fucking kidding me? I have been sitting at home and constantly watching the news after the events of yesterday. For those of you who are wondering, I am a junior at REYNOLDS HIGH SCHOOL! I was there when the shooter kept running in the halls trying to open the doors and get in. I was there in the dark praying and crying while my librarian kept saying ” they’ll have to kill me before they touch my kids” I have known her for three years, her determination to keep us safe broke her heart. Seeing this, that little children need protection in school. Are we sending kids to a battlefield? I have three little brothers ranging from 5-10, and still people have the nerve to speak about the second amendment? Really? I can’t even type anymore. I’m so disgusted and frustrated. When will you realize that it’s important to have gun control? When a shooter is pointing a gun at your child? Is that when you’ll realize that guns aren’t something to be kept around. People say it’s a free country but honesty, this country is more oppressed and diseased than any other country.
Show me ONE instance where gun control and gun free zones prevented school shootings.
Let me tell you guys a story.
In 1996, in a little town in Australia called Port Arthur, a gunman killed 35 and injured 23. This place was a tourist attraction, with plenty of visitors and locals going about their business.
35 people died.That’s 35 marriages, anniversaries, birthdays or uni degrees. 35 people left Port Arthur in body bags.
At the time, we had a pretty conservative government, and the Prime Minister at the time (in hindsight) was kind of a dick. But within two weeks of the shooting, Howard instituted a massive reform and buyback of all firearms.
But it must be a statistical flaw, you say, there weren’t that many massacres before 1996, right? No, WRONG.
In the eighteen years leading up to Port Arthur, there had been 13 mass shootings.
But April, you ask, this couldn’t possibly have worked could it? Wouldn’t it only have reduced the mass shootings? WRONG.
Since 1996, there have been ZERO mass shootings. That’s right, ZERO. FUCKING ZILCH. There have been scattered homicides, however:
How many schools have been raided and children murdered? NONE.
How many film buffs have been murdered in their seats? NONE.
How many innocent lives have been lost to the barrel of a gun? NONE.
On top of this, homicides involving the use of guns, and youth suicide involving the use of guns has declined dramatically, by up to 60%
Australia, however much the environment tries to kill you, is a safe haven, and you can walk the streets with 99% assurance that you won’t fall victim to a drive by shooting.
Your move, America.
in 1987 a lone gunman killed 16 people, wounded 15 and then committed suicide. within six months the uk government passed an amendment to the firearms act effectively outlawing all high calibre, high frequency, high capacity rifles and shotguns.
in 1996 another lone gunman killed 16 children and their teacher, and then committed suicide. again within six months the uk government outlawed all handguns. special dispensation had to be issued in order to hold shooting competition as part of the 2012 olympic games, and british hopefuls had to train overseas.
you can legally own certain types of shotgun, .22 calibre rifles over a certain barrel length, and antiques. that’s it.
in the nigh-on twenty years since the uk has had one mass shooting. one. and we’re down to about 30 gun-related deaths annually.
there is not one example of gun control laws reducing mass shootings and gun-related homicide. there are dozens. it literally works every time. the usa is the anomaly not because it didn’t work but because it hasn’t tried.
this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts….
do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?
stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.
