Attention: TRIGGER! Really life or death topics:
Selena Gomez is an exec producer of “13 Reasons Why”, a Netflix show based on Jay Asher’s best-selling book about suicide.
Selena Gomez – Same Old Love:
“Take away your things and go
You can’t take back what you said, I know
I’ve heard it all before, at least a million times
I’m not one to forget, you know
I don’t believe, I don’t believe it
You left in peace, left me in pieces
Too hard to breathe
I’m on my knees right now
I’m so sick of that same old love, that shit, it tears me up
I’m so sick of that same old love, my body’s had enough”
Quote from: Louis C.K. 2017 (2017) Movie Script
“Two reasons I think women should be allowed to kill babies.
Number one: I don’t think life is that important. It’s just not. It is not.
People get too excited… about life.
“Oh, life.” Fuck you. It’s not that… Make a list of every shitty thing ever, that’s in life.
Life is okay. I like life. I like it. I don’t need it. I’d be fine without it. I like life, though. I do.
You know how much I like life? I have never killed myself. – That’s how much I like it. – Whoo! That’s exactly how much I like it, with a razor-thin margin.
I like it precisely enough to not kill myself. It’s an option, though. It’s totally an option. I mean, I’m 49. I have two kids. I’ve flipped through the brochure a few times. I’ve thought of killing myself just to win an argument.
Not supposed to talk about suicide, even to your shrink. You ever go to a shrink and they’re like, “Have you had thoughts… of suicide?” And you’re like, “No, because if I say yes, you’ll press a button, and folks will run in and hold me… “Hold him down!”
You should talk about it. The whole world is just made of people who didn’t kill themselves today. That’s who’s here. It’s all of us that went, “Okay, fuck it, keep doing it.”
It’s… It’s an interesting thing about life. Life can get very difficult, very sad, very upsetting. But you don’t have to do it. You don’t have to do it. You don’t have to do anything. You never have to do anything because you can kill yourself. If they send you a letter from Motor Vehicles, come in and: “No, I don’t. I’ll kill myself.”
You can do that. You can do that once. But you can do it. It’s interesting because even when life gets bad, people choose it over nothing. Even the worst versions of life, even a shitty, shitty life, is worth living, apparently. ‘Cause folks are living the fuck out of them.
Have you ever seen somebody, you’re like, “He should kill himself. Why did he not… that dude…” Ever been driving and you look in the next car, you’re like, “Ugh, shit. I wish I hadn’t looked in that car. That was difficult to glance at… let alone being it.” Just a guy in a… In a tan car. Nobody chooses tan. Nobody picks tan for their car. They give you tan. “Is that mine?” “Yeah, it’s yours, fucking loser. Made it tan.” They shouldn’t even make tan cars. It’s mean to make them. You look over, you see a guy in a tan car with dents all over it and a garbage bag for a window. What is holding up his suicide? What is delaying it? What is keeping him from stopping being that? And what would it take? What would it take? What would it take? Both windows are garbage bags? Is that…? Seriously, do you know how much misery is involved in a garbage bag for a window? Do you know how many separate moments of shit misery? “They canceled my insurance. I broke my window. Duct tape.”
Here’s the truth. Running away will not solve your problems. That’s totally true. But killing yourself solves all your problems. It actually does. It even solves world’s problems. For you. “Hey, what about ISIS?” “Kill yourself. Then they’ll never get you.” Seriously, if everybody who’s afraid of ISIS kills themselves right now, then ISIS loses. Because they live in a world of people that don’t give a shit. “We’re gonna cut his head off!” “Yeah, okay.” “It’s not fun now.”
So, that’s the first reason. That’s the first reason I think women should be allowed to kill babies. ‘Cause life is not so important.
The second reason is because that’s their job. Women have to decide who lives and dies. That’s because they’re the female of the species. In the reproductive arena, that’s what the female does. They are the selectors. They have to decide this.”
