iv;e been playing final fantasy x
When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett [Johansson] does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that. There’s so many of these little people out here doing awful things for money in the world of being famous. And little girls see that. They should have the opposite spectrum of that to look up to.
Dreamboat, check, awesome human being, check.

Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
worstbest part is that this would be perfectly normal for Utena…
I love how Saionji is really focused on out-kreeTHUDing Touga.

Ableism is Helen Keller being an outspoken political activist and lecturer, publishing 12 books, being the first deaf and blind person to ever earn a college degree, a member of the Socialist Party in America, and an activist for women’s rights and labor rights, but never being portrayed by deaf or blind individuals in the numerous movie portrayals of her life (nor her teacher and companion, Anne Sullivan), and being the subject of countless jokes about her disabilities, and the subsequent sound of her voice due to her inability to hear.
Ableism is Christy Brown publishing 7 books that have been translated into over 20 languages, designing a fully adapted home for himself and his family, and teaching himself to write, draw, and paint entirely with his left leg, and people still making jokes ‘that are better read in his r****ded voice’, and having a movie about his life erasing the fact that he was abused and likely killed by his wife and caretaker.
Ableism is Howard Hughes setting and breaking numerous aviation records, winning an oscar, producing over 25 movies, establishing the now 4th largest medical institute in America, and surviving several near fatal plane crashes, but people being more upset by the fact the abled actor who played him didn’t win an oscar, rather than the jokes about him pissing in jars and uncontrollably repeating himself.
Ableism is Stevie Wonder being a child prodigy who was able to play piano, harmonica, drums, and bass at an early age, being signed to Motown at age 11, having over 30 number ten hit singles, receiving the Gershwin Prize, being appointed Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters, winning 22 Grammy’s and a Lifetime Achievement Award, and selling 100 million records worldwide, and still being the subject of countless numbers of jokes about not being able to see.
Ableism is Stephen Hawking developing mathematical proof of black holes, redefining the Big Bang Theory, proving Einstein’s theory of General Relativity, surviving 50 years past the 2 year life expectancy doctors gave him, writing a record-breaking bestseller, being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and being made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, but still being made into a joke about incontinence and shitting himself, and the appearance of his face from his disability.
Ableism is abled/able-bodied people thinking the term “Person(s) with Disabilities” has humanized these people in the public mind by putting the person before disability.
Ableism is abled/able-bodied people thinking that “overcoming” a disability means success and living without accommodations, when these people often did both and are still disabled by an abusive, violent, and oppressive society.
Ableism is abled/able-bodied people still seeing your existence pathetic and laughable, no matter - by any standard - the astounding level of your achievements.
Ableism is being measured by your “contribution(s) to society” as a disabled person, and still being seen as subhuman either way, whether you’re considered exceptional or not.
This is important
A friend and I were out with our kids when another family’s two-year-old came up. She began hugging my friend’s 18-month-old, following her around and smiling at her. My friend’s little girl looked like she wasn’t so sure she liked this, and at that moment the other little girl’s mom came up and got down on her little girl’s level to talk to her.
“Honey, can you listen to me for a moment? I’m glad you’ve found a new friend, but you need to make sure to look at her face to see if she likes it when you hug her. And if she doesn’t like it, you need to give her space. Okay?”
Two years old, and already her mother was teaching her about consent.
My daughter Sally likes to color on herself with markers. I tell her it’s her body, so it’s her choice. Sometimes she writes her name, sometimes she draws flowers or patterns. The other day I heard her talking to her brother, a marker in her hand.
“Bobby, do you mind if I color on your leg?”
Bobby smiled and moved himself closer to his sister. She began drawing a pattern on his leg with a marker while he watched, fascinated. Later, she began coloring on the sole of his foot. After each stoke, he pulled his foot back, laughing. I looked over to see what was causing the commotion, and Sally turned to me.
“He doesn’t mind if I do this,” she explained, “he is only moving his foot because it tickles. He thinks its funny.” And she was right. Already Bobby had extended his foot to her again, smiling as he did so.
What I find really fascinating about these two anecdotes is that they both deal with the consent of children not yet old enough to communicate verbally. In both stories, the older child must read the consent of the younger child through nonverbal cues. And even then, consent is not this ambiguous thing that is difficult to understand.
Teaching consent is ongoing, but it starts when children are very young. It involves both teaching children to pay attention to and respect others’ consent (or lack thereof) and teaching children that they should expect their own bodies and their own space to be respected—even by their parents and other relatives.
And if children of two or four can be expected to read the nonverbal cues and expressions of children not yet old enough to talk in order to assess whether there is consent, what excuse do full grown adults have?
NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY
This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.
this is disgusting
I don’t understand why all of these terrifyingly, recklessly misogynistic articles I’ve been seeing lately are being written by women…
The problem with the male “box” getting smaller as the gender roles for women expand isn’t feminism, it isn’t women, it isn’t “female privilege”, it’s masculinity, male privilege and the idea that being a man MUST BE BETTER than being a woman, that MAN STUFF CANNOT TOUCH WOMAN STUFF, that being a woman is bad, that being called a girl is the WORST THING EVER, that being told you throw like a girl will DESTROY YOU.
That’s the problem.
And the solution isn’t to push women back, and take all their stuff, and put up a flag saying I PROCLAIM THIS LAND IN THE NAME OF MANHOOD, it’s for “manhood” to get the fuck over itself, and understand there’s nothing wrong with sharing qualities, interests, traits, and identity with girls and women.
Just dug up this article and thought I’d share the most crucial part of it. Ami masterfully examines how hurtful are patriarchal views on gender.
