    Why was Tyler the Creater chosen? He has some pro-rape lyrics :(
    I’m just wondering, I don’t mean to be like second guessing you guys

    I believe #16 is by the photographer Holly Lindem.

    Some of this month’s backgrounds reminded me of those scenes in star trek tos where someone is squirming and having a seizure or something on the floor, with really loud trumpet music playing on the background. but in a good way.

    these are possibly my favourite backgrounds rookie has ever done aah

    I hope this isn’t too much of a non sequitur, but I just had this moment of realization of how much Rookie has influenced me as a person. Thank you.

    The photos are beautiful as well.

    Best backgrounds that Rookie ever had (in my opinion) esp. #2,5,9,11,12 and so many more of my favorites!

    Two things: New theme-month already??

    and, nothing makes me appreciate the beautiful weirdness of American culture more than this magazine.

    Whyyyy is Tyler the Rape-Joking Misogynist-Writing Homophobic Creator in here? :(

    everything else is beautiful as usual, but i don’t get that particular addition, unless there’s something about him that i don’t know…
    and according to me, anyone responsible for the lyrics “Rape a pregnant bitch and tell my friends I had a threesome” doesn’t belong on Rookie :(

    there’s something I just love above about #8, Yayoi Kusama is so amazinggggg

    I know several rookies are about to disagree with me but, I don’t see anything wrong with tyler the creator, yes he talks about rape in his lyrics but i hope you guys know that he actually isn’t pro rape. his songs tell a story, it shouldn’t be taken so literal. And he’s not homophobic either , he’s friends with frank ocean and frank ocean has never once been offended about what tyler says in his songs because he knows tyler is not homophobic. tyler says a lot of things for shock value to “piss off old conservative white people”(something he frequently mentions in in interviews). If you ever watch his interviews you’ll see he’s a pretty sensible guy. and in the beginning of one of his songs i think it’s “radicals” he has a disclaimer and says ” don’t do anything I say in the song it’s fiction and f*ck bill o’ reilly”. With that being said I am a feminist and respect what other rookies have to say about him but i just thought some of you should know that about him before you judge him.
