We are gathered here today because SOMEBODY *glares at coffin* couldn’t stay alive.
emotional state: sad over female characters not getting what they deserve
today i realized that the phrase “can’t teach an old dog new tricks” is the old-man version of “boys will be boys”
like no, don’t tell jimmy to stop hitting his sisters. boys will be boys.
don’t bother telling grampa he can’t pinch the waitress’ bottom. can’t teach an old dog new tricks.
"don’t try to change their behavior" is what they’re really saying. "the people they’re hurting aren’t worth the effort."
