My attempt at making sense

fknvileplume:

Sometimes I just get really angry because society still thinks it’s okay to treat dwarfism as a joke.

It’s a physical disability and deserves respect and understanding.

Not “midget jokes” and dwarf tossing scenes in movies.

All objectification is dehumanisation, which becomes oppression and violence against those you objectify.
Respectful representation is so important!
If you have the power to control how someone is represented in your film, your jokes or your general language, take that power seriously and be a decent human!

Well helLO there, Mads Mikkelsen. This … this is a good look for you. 

prettyarbitrary:

He looks like some ineffably rugged, badass post-apocalyptic video game character.

And this is the dude who plays Hannibal.

hva faaaan, Mads! det ser kraftedeme godt ud !

BAHAHAHAHA American fan’s view of Mads Mikkelsen will never not amuse me! That last photo is the least serious thing I’ve ever seen this guy do!

An Open Letter

Dear Feminists,

Please read this letter until the end.

You are a hypocrite because you say that, “men cannot _____” how is this any different from you saying that society tells you, “Women cannot ____” ?

The entire point of feminism when it was established was equal rights and being proud of who you are no matter who you are. And by that definition I am a feminist as well. There are always going to be issues with equal rights, racism, sexism, and ignorance still exist and they always will. 

You can never win by fighting hate with more hate; it’s like fighting a fire with gasoline instead of water, you only make the flames bigger and they consume more of what you are trying to save.

As I said before I believe everyone is entitled to equal rights but there is no such thing as being MORE equal than someone else, Orwell told us that in Animal Farm. You say men can not be oppressed but that is not true, if you believe that we are all equal then men can be mistreated as well, if you say that everyone is equal but men can NOT be oppressed you are a hypocrite.

I don’t expect a positive response to this but I want to leave you by saying this:

At what point does this become a fight against men and not a fight for women?

File under: People who don’t understand feminism who send in “scathing critiques” as though they are some internet martyr

Also who don’t understand the sociopolitical context of Animal Farm -.-

What are you so afraid of!?

I’m REALLY sorry but it looks like they’re about to rap battle

My heart goes out to anyone who is risking their very lives to exist in a world where your existence generates hate.

hausofriya:

In case no one told you, or you haven’t felt it yet?

I’m so proud of you.

You are such a warrior.

I love you.

Please stay strong.

"It’s the age of celebrity. It’s the age of social media. But for we old school girls who don’t want to show up at every single event just ‘cause… I don’t tweet–I have nothing to say. I’m not on Facebook. I mean it sounds like I have plenty to say, but that’s to people who I’m in a room with. I’m not that interesting, and the rest is none of your business." - Gina Torres

There’s a change.org petition going around that is asking for Comedy Central to give me my own spot after The Daily Show! People keep bringing it up to me and it’s like, a strange thing to ignore (for the sole purpose of being politically correct). SO I want to like, take a moment and say thank you to those that created it and signed it. That is unbelievably nice of you. And I am so very very honored to like, even be a person that some people would consider a candidate to slip into that 11:30 spot. (sounds like sex!)

That being said, I’m sure Comedy Central already has something dope in the works to take that particular spot (teehee sex again!) after the Daily Show. I’m sure it will be great and funny and wonderful! I can’t wait to see what it is.

BUT whatever happens with that slot, just know that I appreciate your support. Also know that right now I am in the middle of creating and working on some VERY dope things. Not necessarily the exact way that you lovelies have envisioned it, maybe something, dare I say it- ESPECIALLY & MAGNIFICENTLY DOPER. Y’all shall see soon, ya hear?!

um so lemme get this straight…tiana starts her own business in a time where black women had next to no rights….mulan pretty much saves china and becomes a top ranking military official….but the annoying sister in frozen makes a throwaway line about being gassy and gets lauded as the the first feminist princess??
