Genius, or Insanity?

Dear Women,
This halloween please say no to these costumes please just say no they are fucking insulting and Dia de los Muertos is NOT HALLOWEEN I REPEAT NOT HALLOWEEN THIS IS NOT A COSTUME PLEASE STOP TREATING IT LIKE ONE
Thank you


this hurts.

this is capitalism ripping through my memories i hold so sacred. Memories of walking through the streets of Chapala after school with my grandmother, and the smell of plants for the preparation of the big event. Memories of memories of memories

This is capitalism and white supremacy destroying, erasing and making new… something that has connected me with my elderes and ancestors,

This is whiteness telling me my body, our gente is unwanted, dehumanized and conditioned to death but at the same time extracting a part of my identity and wearing it as a mask.

This is a mask made of our dead and torn bodies… this is literally a mask made out of ripped bloody flesh. The flesh of migrants who die every year trying to cross.. the flesh of people who become criminalized and confined behind bars. The bloody flesh of torn bodies from years of exploitation in sweat shops, fruit and vegetable fields, dish washers.. domestic workers… 

this is our flesh ripped out cleaned, pampered and styled to fit a white face.

Anonymous said: Let me get this straight, Nicki Minaj can wiggle her butt six ways till Sunday and people can call her a black feminist messiah, but when there's a weak-ass Spider-Woman variant cover that make her look like she's posing like Nicki Minaj, it suddenly NOT okay and Marvel should be ashamed??? I'm honestly, seriously confused here :/




Nicki Minaj is also a real person who makes real decisions for herself and made a video and song that celebrated her own body and her own sexuality while outright critiquing the Male Gaze through visual metaphor

Jessica Drew is not a real person and was drawn by a man in a submissive position who visually objectifies her (spandex doesn’t work on asses like that come on) and every female superhero he’s drawn. And he can’t even draw a background right.

repeat it with me now everybody: made up women drawn for gross men to jerk off to are NOT equivalent to real life women expressing their sexuality for their own benefit

just some of my favourite secrets from this week originals sins

19 Sep 2014


sirius and remus talking quietly in the middle of the night and sirius (half-asleep) mutters “when we’re married, i want like. four dogs.” or something and remus just stares at him for a few seconds before going “what did you just say?” and sirius just goes bright red like “what? dogs. i just said dogs, that’s all i said. four of them.” and remus just grins “sure, pads. four dogs.” and then rolls over and goes to sleep

fun fact this is like 100% how Husband “proposed” to me the first time.

MCU Clint Barton: Rugged and Handsome Action Hero, defeats hordes of Chitauri without getting a scratch on him, lands sick jumps off skyscrapers, too cool to speak outside of quips

Comic Book Clint Barton: gets his ass kicked by russian gangsters in tracksuits on a daily basis, would probably eat floor pizza if Kate wasn’t around to stop him

True enough, HOWEVER: Comic Book Clint Barton has plenty of moments of sheer incandescent badass,


therefore it only stands to logic that MCU Clint Barton does indeed eat the floor pizza because there is no Kate around to stop him.

MCU Clint Barton has Natasha telling him not to eat floor pizza.

Are you kidding me Natasha dares him to eat the floor pizza before he even thinks about it

fandom hates characters of colour having their own narrative, having their own character arc and development.

fandom hates it when poc are the heroes for once, and don’t fit into any stereotype, or any racist trope. 

fandom hates scott mccall, princess tiana, skye and melinda may whilst simultaneously raising their white friend to levels of adoration and constant celebration. see: stiles stilinski, charlotte la bouff and jemma simmons. 

fandom always find an moc, most of the time, black men, to be suspicious of. see: alan deaton, sam wilson, nick fury, antoine triplett. and these are just a few of the countless others. 

fandom hates it when woc are paired up with white men on anything. ‘why can’t they just be friends?’ ‘she’s a strong female character, why does she need a relationship?’ they all say without realising that woc are severely underrepresented and we are rarely cast as lead roles. see: abbie mills, mako mori, reboot!uhura, gwen from merlin and joan watson. we need to note that most of the time this occurs exclusively to black women. fandom stamps a ‘brotp’ label on their forehead and desexualises them. 

fandom makes countless photosets ‘celebrating female characters’ but all of these characters are white.

fandom loves m/m slash but don’t give a shit about it if it involves moc. for them, it is exclusively for cishet white guys. see: more fics for ‘stony’ than tony/rhodey despite the fact that rhodey and tony have known each other longer, have a close connection and are best friends.

Actors/writers praising Sophie and Sansa

Kit Harington:

"I really like Sansa in the books. I have no objections to her at all. I think she’s misguided in a lot of ways, but she’s by no means in any way lesser than any of the other children. I think she does some brilliant things in the books." 

"You know who I really like and is turning into a really interesting character: Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner). She quite often is typecast as this little weepy girl, and what Sophie brings to that role is great."

"I think the very very interesting storyline is Sansa’s. Whereas Sansa’s always been the down beaten one, the one who’s had a really hard time, she starts fighting back which is really interesting. And I think Sophie Turner’s an incredible young actress."

Peter Dinklage:

"I’m just lucky enough to work with people like Sophie Turner, who is just, I think, one of my favourite actors"

 ”Sophie’s the best! I had so much fun working with her.”

Natalie Dormer:

"I have this sincere love and respect for this wonderful blossoming that’s happening in young Sophie as an actress"

"I remember this day and I remember the way Sophie, on her own, completely naturally cried on and off for hours. It was the most beautiful, natural performance. I know teenagers, they have hormones going around, but it was natural tears the entire time. She was beautiful"

"It was really good this season to join the family proper, you know? Really get in there and… [smiles at Sophie] …hang out with you.”

Sibel Kekilli:

"She’s like every 17-year-old girl, freaking out for Justin Bieber. [Laughs] She makes jokes of my English. She keeps telling me wrong words in English, and I believe her, so I will use these words, and in the end, she’ll start to laugh at me. “These are the wrong English words. I was just making fun of you.” That’s really mean! But that’s Sophie. I love her."

"I love Sophie! I feel like a mother—she’s growing so fast! She’s so tall, too! She was a kid in the first season, and now she’s a young woman, even more beautiful. I feel like I have to take care of her in private life. I love her."

"Last season, she had a really difficult scene where she had to cry as she watched Littlefinger’s ship leave without her. It was such a heartbreaking scene, and she did it so well—she couldn’t stop crying! She’s a really good actress."
"I got to see a lot of great actors — young actors — children, like Sophie (Turner). Seeing her grow up was very special."

Alex Graves:

One of my favourite scenes, actually, and Sophie really came into her own and is so wonderful in it, is the scene with Littlefinger, it’s the ‘Trial of Littlefinger’ as we called it. That scene is brilliant, and she’s incredible, they all are, but that’s the beginning of a big storyline and especially with Sophie pulling off the shell game of the trial.”

Bryan Cogman:

"Now I think Sansa gets a bad rap. I’m gonna— I’m gonna address some critics of Sansa. She is one of my favorite characters, and I have great affection for her as a character.  […] I think Sansa— she’s been told that the world is a certain way, and through the course of this season and indeed the series finds out that it’s not. And some people find her behavior annoying and selfish, but she’s a kid—she’s a teenage girl, you know.  I think in many ways some of the stuff she does in the later episodes are every bit as heroic as the things that Arya does. She just has to play a different game than Arya.”

"If you had to pick one character to give a hug, who would it be? I hemmed and hawed and went with Sansa"


"Sansa has been a piece that other people have moved about the board to achieve their own goals - using her, discarding her, using her for a different purpose. You’re going to marry Joffrey - no, you’re going to marry Loras. You’re going to marry Tyrion. She’s beginning to at least try to understand how she can play the game of thrones and be not a piece but a player - with her own goals, and moving other pieces around. And she’s not a warrior like Robb, Jon… she’s not even a wild child like Arya, she can’t fight with swords, but she has her wits"

"[Who’s your favourite character] Tyrion, because he’s the wittiest. But I like them all. I like Arya, Dany and Sansa […]"
