the writers’ strike of 2007-2008 haunts me to this day
I blog what I like, and I like what blog. I reblog a lot of stuff.
Just a heads up, my fandoms are all over the place, just check out the About Me.
Got questions? Don't be afraid to ask.
the writers’ strike of 2007-2008 haunts me to this day
got no problem with watching a full season of tv in one sitting but when it comes time to pick a movie im like “am i really ready to pay attention to something for two hours”
The Croods is the best
ahh the creature design was so excellent in this film
my baby brother was really upset so
he was crying
until he realized he was taking selfies on my laptop
Best post on tumblr omg
Preach, bb.The hilarious part is these whiny, self-absorbed hipster girls go absolutely apeshit when the evil yucky nasty penis-having poo poo head menzzzzzz try to “invade” their “little girls clubs”, like My Little Pony, Sailor Moon, Pretty Cure, Powerpuff Girls ect ect. I actually do get to decide whoever is worthy of my respect, man or woman. You can stamp your foot and roll your mascara’d up eyes all you want sweetheart, you are not automatically entitled to my respect. Why should I respect you? You’re an annoying, obnoxious, self-pitying, self-absorbed, pseudo-intellectual hypocrite who seems to be enchanted with the sound of her own voice. “I’m a woman therefore I am entitled to your respect.” How old are you? You’re probably too used to preferential treatment, and squeal like a schoolgirl when you don’t get it.
She kinda looks like Danielle from king of the Nerds, (I’ve seen the video though I know it’s not her)
Funny thing is that real nerd girls don’t find the need to whine about this kind of stuff or care what others think. Also we don’t label ourselves nerds to seem cool or special
I’m not a comic book fan (except for X-Men), but I feel like I can debunk this from personal experience.
When I tell guys that I watch anime, they actually get excited and think I’m the dopest female they have ever met. I also have female friends that are into anime too. I don’t know what guys ALB is talking about because I have never encountered negativity for enjoying anime.
Also, poppypicklesticks makes an excellent point.
What in the actual fuck..i back up and support every bit of information that is spewing out of her perfectly glossed lips. listen, it isn’t a crime for us girls that are into comics, anime and cosplaying to enjoy what we love. but if people like you are degrading us for cosplaying characters that you guys designed in skimpy outfits and then accuse us for being attention whores by wearing those exacts same outfits, you should sit back and think about how much of a double standard you’ve created for yourself. you should probably watch her videos you might learn a thing or two. and we do not get mad if youre interested in my little pony, sailor moon and other “little girls club” sorts. we get angry when you over sexualize it in a disgusting way that makes me want to throw up on my hairless cat. so do us all a favor and dont be an asshole. why cant we just sit back and enjoy the things we love without judgement. and PS its mostly the guys that have never seen a woman half dressed in the flesh that usually complain about things like this. good day!
My birthday’s next week. I know what I’m doing.
I’m going to AwesomeCon!
why touch her hair though? Dammit…
Reason number 45-60754280865’11B I won’t go on a mission trip.
I am soooo done
Mission trips make me sick
This baby girl is being treated like a tourist attraction or a wild animal and I am not here for this. This picture says so much about the owner of that white hand.
This photo makes me feel so uncomfortable
this photo makes me fucking angry.
and a mission trip? .. yeah, aka colonialism.
Get OUT of our countries with this fucking bullshit, honestly. Missionaries are already fucking so much up in African countries. As a gay Nigerian I LIVE the repercussions of this daily. I’ve been exorcised, had bibles thrown at me, been sent to priests for a “cure”, been given spiritual baths which burn my skin to “wash the devil out of me” you name it. Done by my own family and people at the behest of “our Lord and Savior”. It’s traumatic, and especially hurtful when we understand that general acceptance of same sex love and eroticism and more nuanced, varied understandings of gender were the norm PRIOR to colonization and missionary activity.
And then we have pictures like this to remind us of the OTHER bullshit these missionary fuckers do. They roll up in our countries as “white saviors” and are constantly doing racist bullshit like this. Objectifying us, casting us as “primitive” and in need of being saved from ourselves and our “heathen” ways. Let’s not even start on the rampant sexual abuses priests committed against Africans across the continent. The ways in which they destroyed and suppressed our cultures. Made us hate ourselves to the point that today we call our own grandfathers and grandmothers with traditional beliefs “despicable heathens” and Satanists. Where they have so warped our cultures, identities and understanding of self, to fit THEIR white colonial mold.
We forget that missionaries came as colonizers first and foremost, and in many cases caused far more egregious and long lasting damage than the colonial administrators themselves. And they are still doing it today. Look at the rise of Christian fundamentalism in Africa in the last 30 years and you will see a direct correlation with a rise in hate and animus against same sex loving and trans people in many African countries. Watch the movie “God Loves Uganda” if you don’t believe me: the legacy and impact of missionaries on Africa is DAMNING and is getting WORSE, especially for those of us who identify as LGBTQ.
It makes me sick. This picture makes me sick. Missionaries make me sick. What they have done to our cultures and communities and traditions makes me sick. Their racism cloaked with a smile and their “good Book” makes me sick. The fact that they think that they’re “doing good” while they’re just reproducing white supremacist patriarchal colonial structures of control, domination and subjugation makes me sick. They don’t see us as full people, but as spectacles for their white gaze, as this picture makes so bitingly clear, and they don’t give a damn as long as they make their God “happy”
You have caused so much pain in my life and that of many of my friends. It hurts.
GET THE FUCK OUT OF AFRICA (or wherever this pic was taken) AND LEAVE OUR CHILDREN ALONE!!!!
And a big fuck you to all of the people doing mission “service trips” to ~*aFRicA*~ too.
I’m utterly and completely done.
As a daughter of black missionaries who have taken predominantly white people with them on short term missions to black and brown countries, I can attest that these people are often poorly trained with little to offer except demonstrations of their supposed superiority (as Christians, as white people and as westerners).
It gives them a huge white savior high and then they come back taking abut how the trip changed their lives (nothing much about the people they were going to “help” because you can’t do anything in a week).
Mind you, these are the same Fox News watching republicans who don’t want a penny of “their money” going to healthcare or WIC or homelessness or schools. But these foreign brown and black people are somehow better, more noble and more worthy of their attention than the starving and impoverished people whose gaze they avoid and plight they ignore in their own countries. Not so scary and argumentative and more appreciative. [huge eye roll]
The phrase “words to live by” gets thrown around often these days, but these are absolutely words to live by.
You forgot to add the part where he’s teaching this to his daughter, which is a pretty goddamned important omission, if you ask me.
