"As Rhett tells Scarlett in a key early scene, ‘You need kissing badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how.’ For ‘kissed,’ substitute the word you’re thinking of. Dialogue like that reaches something deep and fundamental in most people; it stirs their fantasies about being brought to sexual pleasure despite themselves." -Roger Ebert

This is going out to all of those on Tumblr who might like to help me on a project.  I recently graduated College with a BA in Theatre, and one of things I hope to get into is playwriting. The first project I want to try and craft is a narrative of sorts about military dependents and the struggles present for military families. This is where you all come in.

I am asking that if you feel called to do so, could you write your story. Of course it wouldn’t be everything, but the little significant things that you’ve learned being in this position. Maybe it’s a story you recall, or just your feelings about being a military dependent. I’m not looking for something melodramatic, just something real. It doesn’t have to have a climax or even have a narrative at all, I just want to capture the feelings and thoughts of real people in this position and put it into a play. Write as you would a letter to a friend, or a diary entry, or how you would explain this lifestyle to another person. The main question I am asking is “What is it like being a Military dependent and how do people cope with that family dynamic”

Now if you do decide to help me with this, I have a bit of a disclaimer. I would be using your words, text, stories and feelings in crafting this piece, so you will have a direct part in creating this, but by sending me a piece, you are of course giving me permission to use your stories and words in my piece. Its fine if you are not comfortable with this, I understand. But I hope you guys trust me to not twist your words and to just tell the truth. I would of course not use your real names in this piece, in order to protect people’s privacy.

If you can’t send a piece to me I ask that you reblog this for to anyone you think would be interested in this project, and I ask that you keep me in your prayers as I tackle this project.

So if you are interested, here are the details. You can make your entry as long or as short as it needs to be, as long as it’s the truth. I don’t care about spelling or grammar, as long as it’s your own words. Because I want to protect people’s privacy, I ask you submit your contribution to this website, https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7CGWD6J

It’s completely anonymous and I will be the only one who can read your responses. I will not, however, be able to see your names and who sent me what, so you have privacy in your response.

I want to remind everyone that as a military kid myself, I will be reading these from that perspective, I have no intention of creating an anti military propaganda piece or taking advantage of these stories to create a separate agenda, I just want to tell a story of something that has been a large part of my life and my growing up, from the perspective of others who have also experienced this. I cannot stress this enough.

Please consider sending me something and please please reblog this message for anyone who would be interested in this project. I hope to get as many different stories and perspectives as possible. If you have any questions please let me know! Thank you and God Bless

Nobody gives the black girl mob credit for being smart as fuck. They clown but at the end of the day they are really intelligent.

And it’s not subtle at all.
Taystee is a math prodigy in addition to being well-read, Poussey is multilingual, Cindy just knows shit, Suzanne studies Shakespeare, Watson was a good student in addition to being a track star, Vee is basically an evil genius. Piper often learns the most from them; they taught her how to fight and helped translate Pennsatucky’s biblical threat.
The show flat out acknowledges the (academic) intelligence of the black inmates time and time again, but the audience collectively ignores it.

ALL OF THIS
