true self control is waiting until the movie starts to eat your popcorn
why would the movie eat my popcorn
nevermind i get it
It really amazes me how people will argue that we can’t have an character of color be played by an actor of color for the sake of it, but they will fight tooth and nail to make sure white characters are played by white actors and actresses.
Because white people are totally better at playing people of color than people of color.
The continuation of patriarchy? Whatever that’s the just way it is.
Making a joke about female supremacy and misandry on your feminist blog as a way of coping with patriarchy? Worse than hitler.
‘Asexual characters are boring’ is writer code for ‘I am too lazy and unimaginative to come up with character conflicts that don’t revolve around sex.’
Street harassment is not a compliment.
Something so many goddamn men don’t seem to get with all this “what is wrong with catcalling” crap…
closet-racists like to claim that they’d be totally fine and dandy with traditionally white characters being portrayed by actors of color whilst they’re casually dismissing the prevalence of white-washing in hollywood. hate to break it to you, but that is NOT the typical response that actors of color receive, and if you can’t acknowledge that, then you’re only adding to the problem.
remember that time hunger games fans flipped their shit because rue, who IS actually black in the books, was rightfully cast as black in the film? apparently their rose-colored white-is-default glasses made their eyes gloss over that tidbit of info. (let’s not even get wholeheartedly into the fact that katniss was described as having olive skin and jet black hair but her casting call specifically asked for only white actresses…because non-whites could never be expected to have dark hair and tan skin amirite?!)
remember that time people actually boycotted thor because idris elba was in it? http://www.comicsalliance.com/2010/12/16/racists-thor-idris-ebla-racism/
remember that time donald glover got hoards of letters calling him the n-word because there were rumors about him possibly being the new spiderman? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lgko-xReFSs
or that time the film adaptation of avatar: the last airbender (a show with OBVIOUS asian inspiration) was almost an entirely caucasian cast except for the “bad guy”, who, in the cartoon is actually light-skinned? http://io9.com/5111680/avatar-casting-makes-fans-see-white
or remember that time all those fans said it was wrong to have angel coulby play the role of gwen in merlin because it wasn’t era-appropriate. because, ya know, being era-appropriate in a made-up story about magic is srs bsns.
so that’s why i don’t give a shit if you think i’m “overreacting” about jj abrams having a white actor play khan noonien singh. i’m not that surprised by it, since actors of color are routinely dismissed, but i still reserve the right to be pissed.
SO THERES THIS SHOW ON THE HUB….
It’s called Shezow. It’s a show about a boy who puts on his aunt’s ring and it gives him super powers but the ring was supposed to be for a girl so it dresses him up as one.
There’s a kid’s show about a cross-dressing super hero and I think that’s pretty cool.
I’m intrigued yet skeptical.
This is realllllllllly weird lmao
This is really NORMAL.
Except we never see it-so it is terrifying and uncomfortable when it happens.
(Mostly because people would laugh or be unkind)
I own a sex shop. Once a woman bled on our chair during an interview. She was horrified and felt ashamed because it was in some way unprofessional. We weren’t bothered. We said ‘what better place to work on being ok with your body than at a feminist sex shop?’
Bleeding is normal and dealing with it is one of the most pervasive ways women are complicit in their silence.
Some men bleed too. How would you react to that? For many men who are Trans the act of bleeding is a security threat.
Fuck off with your lolz.
Reblogging again for above commentary ^^^^^
So happy that the above commentor included trans* men.
cultural genocide in North America
This, this right here, this is why “white people” cannot wear our things, cannot appropriate our customs or languages. Because y’all did this. y’all continue to do this too.
white people can constantly disrespect black people and then demand we respect their ‘opinions’ about how we’re inferior
how about hell no
