black-quadrant:

don’t mistreat people who are sincerely kind

don’t use them for their generosity

and for fuck’s sake don’t take them for granted expecting them to always be there because they’re nice

good-natured people can be worn down so much that even they can become jaded

treat these people right

“ When you’re at the pool lounging on a beach chair and some little kids are running and the lifeguard screams out “no running” do you respond “excuse, not all of us are running”? No, you don’t. The lifeguard didn’t have to specifically state who they were talking to because you’re intelligent enough to comprehend that the comment wasn’t being directed at you. ”

I honestly can’t put into words how disgusted and disturbed I am about this After business. 

Domestic violence is never romantic, and if you are choosing to use After as a form of sex education, or as a template for your current/future relationship(s), I strongly encourage you to please educate yourself on domestic violence and to please seek help if this is a situation that you are currently in, or if it is a situation that someone you know is currently in. 

My judgement of your taste in literature aside, I cannot sit idly by when, statistically speaking, we know that rationalization for instances of domestic violence are usually a warning sign that domestic violence is being experienced in some way by the person who is rationalizing/making excuses.  Here are a few links you might find helpful, and if anyone else knows of more to add, please do:
