  • GET TO KNOW ME MEME || (2/5) royal palaces: Frederiksborg Castle (Denmark)

    Frederiksborg Palace is a palace located in Hillerød, Denmark. It was built as a residence for King Christian IV between 1602 and 1620. Frederiksborg Castle is the largest renaissance castle in Scandinavia. The palace is located on three small islands in the middle of Slotsøen (Palace Lake) and is adjoined by a spectacular formal garden in the Baroque style. Since 1878, Frederiksborg Castle has housed the Museum of National History and since 1693, the Palace Church has been used as the knight’s chapel for the Order of the Elephant and the Order of Dannebrog.

    On 18 November 1995, Prince Joachim of Denmark and Alexandra Christina Manley were married in the Palace Church. Following their divorce in 2005, Alexandra was created Countess of Frederiksborg by Queen Margrethe II in honour of where her marriage to Joachim took place.

Not even sorry for this one.

Wow. This boy’s sense of ENTITLEMENT to this girl, even after she has made it BLATANTLY AND DELIBERATELY clear that she doesn’t want to date him is actually really predatory. 
1. He forced himself to be her partner when she didn’t want to and then tried to pressure her into going to his house, which she was CLEARLY uncomfortable with. 
2. He gives her an uncomfortable amount of romantic gifts, which she clearly does not want. 
3. He corners her at a dance, making her so uncomfortable that she has to LEAVE THE DANCE to avoid him.
4. Another over the top gift in an attempt to coerce her into spending time with him- which she has made clear she is uncomfortable with. BUT he has made it clear that he gets angry if she doesn’t accept his gifts, so she takes it and tries to use it in a way that won’t force her to be alone with this asshole. 
This girl is not a dick. this girl has been harassed by some asshole entitled boy who can’t see that his behavior is inappropriate.

Let’s use a metaphor.
You have a shot gun. 
When you shoot the gun, you can seriously wound of kill other people. But the gun will also kick back, and that can REALLY hurt. It can leave a big ass bruise. Hell, if you hold it wrong, and the gun is big enough, you could break your shoulder. Maybe you even shoot yourself in the foot every now and then. 
But you are still the one holding the gun.

    And “bitch” is attacking women for their right to call you on it.  (via madgay)

    I literally do not care about your gender, sexuality or skin colour.

    I literally only care about whether you’re a nice fucking human being or not.

    so basically you’re racist, sexist and homophobic

    my govt. textbook has a short section on the “gay/lesbian civil rights movement”

    and doesn’t even mention bisexual or transgender people

    or that the Stonewall riots (which it considers the genesis of the LGBT rights movement) was started by a bisexual transgender woman named Sylvia Rivera
