IT'S MY BIRTHDAY AND I AM SO HAPPY
Seriously, I have everything I could ask for. I live in my favorite city in the world, I have an incredible family, an amazing boyfriend, wonderful friends on both sides of the Atlantic and a dream career I never would have thought possible until it happened. So many things are happening in my life right now that I am so thankful for, I can’t even put it into words. I’m 23 today...

boysofdisney: “We all know that no one is more of a model for your own future knight-in-shining-armor than a good, old-fashioned Disney Prince.

cousindampier asked: Hey - so this is the "you don't know me, but I think you're a good writer and enjoy reading what you put out" two cents statement, but neat video. I'm always curious as to how people, who I know through reading, sound - because when you read somebody's work often, there gets to be a certain style/voice which comes to mind. Then you hear somebody speak and they sound...
youcanleadahorticulture replied to your post: On Vigorous Consent And Why It’s Problematic This is an incredibly well-articulated explanation of your views. I really appreciate your moderating, realistic stance on a lot of these really polarizing internet issues. Thank you very much. I don’t think that I’m a moderating voice, because I don’t think I have an objective,...
sofaloveseat asked: i've really liked the stuff you've posted recently on consent. i'm curious what you think of this column. a student at my old university (AU) wrote it and started a huge uproar, and personally, i actually agreed with the article but was afraid to voice such an opinion since there were practically riots from the hugely liberal feminist student body. (it won't let me post the...
On Vigorous Consent And Why It's Problematic
As a few of you have seen, I responded today to a small quote which I find rather dangerous—not necessarily the quote itself, but the ideology it supports. This ideology, widely supported on Tumblr and feminist blogs, is the idea that only a vigorous “yes!” counts as consent, that anything less is non-consent, and that women are often coerced into sluggish, half-hearted...

This was just a… What I feel like the original quote somewhat implied, is that if a woman says “Oh, well,...

heyeverybodyitsdaniel: Nice job not only losing everyone’s respect but disgusting me to no end by playing that fucking miserable conservative bitch of a prime minister Margaret Thatcher in your new film The Iron Lady, you piece of shit.

Anonymous asked: I really liked your answer video! I like your writing as it is, it's funny and always eloquent and interesting, and I like that you're not afraid to have your own opinions - but then seeing you talk in person made me be an even bigger fan! I like your sarcastic style but knowing such a genuinely nice person is the one that's writing it makes it even better. (This is all coming...

Happy Birthday To You, Happy Birthday To You
So, I’m sitting here, sick as a dog, having just taken a sleeping pill yet unable to sleep, and it’s officially my boyfriend’s birthday. The same boyfriend who, a mere three hours ago, brought me dinner, more medicine, and sparkling water because I couldn’t leave the house. The same boyfriend who came to America with me, despite having never been before, and was the most...

Chelsea Fagan Changes The Format
For my next question-answering binge, I thought, instead of barraging my poor Twitter followers with all the Tumblr links I can’t disable—why not do a video? As many of you have asked me to do a video (I choose to assume for fapping purposes), I’ll just kill two birds with one poorly-recorded stone. So, if there is a question that’s been burning inside you about...

"How Much Money Do You Make, Chelsea?"
I get this question so often, and it’s odd—as I would find it rather rude to ask another stranger, blatantly, to tell me how much money he makes. Yet I get it all the time, especially through my various forms of social media. (Though that’s not to say that people I know in person haven’t disarmingly posed the question over meals or drinks.) I understand, of course, that...
I don’t see beauty in these silly pictures of half-naked women, just thin and dismayed enough not to be pornographic. These magazines, these ugly-sexy images floating around my head all day, the men with the glistening muscles hit by just the right amount of light—I hate them all. They’re grotesque, vulgar, screaming when a whisper would have sufficed. I know what real beauty...

But that is such a dick move. And I’m pretty sure this is the first time this guy’s getting laid since I’ve been living in...

For three years, his Dickens-novel charm had been so intriguing to her, so beautifully interesting, but about a year ago it had taken a sharp turn for the grating. Suddenly every quirky mannerism and hyper articulate conversation about wine or Proust had gone from being unique to being affected. It was clear that he was actively trying to cultivate some kind of personality, determined to be...
thefrustratedathlete asked: How do you begin writing your articles? I mean, do you have a step-by-step process that you follow every time? Or do you just go with the flow of your thoughts? (PS. I always look forward to reading your blogs! It makes my day whenever I see a Chelsea Fagan blog on Thought Catalogue)
samwitwicky asked: Loved the post about not writing about Paris. I went this year during my spring break while I was living in Italy, and I had a hard time explaining how I felt about it to friends. I constantly felt the need to explain why I loved the city to people. I loved it, but... became a regularly used phrase. I loved it, but I could've skipped the Eiffel tower. I loved it, but I don't think it...
