Anonymous asked : I think the links on Hitler's madman are down

Thanks for letting me know Anon, that’s because the website MegaUpload has been deleted so naturally the links are down.

nightsky1996 has linked a copy that you can watch online. It’s in English with hardcoded French subtitles.

1930’s Teen Delinquents

i.e. life role models

I’m just gonna reblog this again because it’s one of my favorite pictures ever.
That girl in the chair seems like such a badass I bet she was the leader of the crew.

I want to write about these girls.

When I was a teenager my mother found my grandmother’s (her mother) school scrapbook. It included things like photos, notes, and a two page spread of every demerit she ever received over the course of her formal education. Each of them set aside with little tags like she was so fucking proud of them. They were all for things like, “Unladylike behavior” or, “Skirt too short” or, “refuses to listen to authority”. I loved that spread so much.

I always have to reblog this.
