She is so cute, why do people hate her so much?
(because she’s a black woman who doesn’t pander to the male gaze or take any shit and is just really fuckin awesome)Nikki is a black woman who owns her own business and is making a name in a male dominated industrys but still feminine and that pisses people off lol
Come visit my town. Nothing bad EVER HAPPENS, YOU HEAR ME!!
this is perfect
Fat people and mobility/flexibility—- it exists! I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve ran past people in P.E. classes, and heard them snicker. Things about my body causing the earth to quake, or other really hateful unnecessary things. When I made the cut for soccer before the fifty other kids it was literally bewildering to most. It always has been, other than to the people who know me and see how apparent my abilities are.
That’s another thing, if I was ever right or better at something or made a joke that made more people laugh the immediate response was…
Well, you’re fat.
Why don’t you go eat something
Shut up, fatass.
At least I’m not fat.
Fatty runnin’! Lookout, coming through!
Oh gosh, the thoughtless remarks are endless, and usually along the same lines. It’s so silly that something that took absolutely no real thought to come up with can sting so badly. It’s not true, it was never true, and I knew that but that didn’t change the way it felt to be looked down upon simply for the extra fat I was carrying around—- and carrying well.
Nowadays on the soccer field when someone makes a comment about how I’m taking up more space than I should be allowed, I don’t feel that familiar ache to be something I’m not. I can just shake my head and know that this person is internalizing something that really has nothing to do with the way I look.
Isn’t it funny, too, how the same assholes will swear up and down that they are just worried about your health? Fat hate runs deep, friends. Fight it with flaming fists of fury.
it doesn’t change anything you’re still fat and that makes you unhealthy.
I’m sorry, what was that? I couldn’t hear you over your extreme assholery. It sounded like you were over there not knowing anything about my personal health, but pretending to. That would be pretty dumb considering you’re probably not a doctor and you’ve definitely never given me any sort of evaluation. If you think you can tell how healthy I am by just seeing that I’m fat, I’m sorry to say you’ve been grossly misinformed. Bummer city for you, jerk.
<3 <3 <3
well I think yo are extremely cute <3
Happy Birthday, Jessica Williams!
Jessica joined The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in 2012 at the tender age of 22, making her the show’s youngest cast member ever as well as its first black female correspondent.
“It’s impossible to be perfect, and you won’t do a good job if you’re too focused on proving yourself to others. Instead, I try to envision myself succeeding in whatever I’m doing.”
I LOVE HER!
My little sisters and I just finished the first season of Sailor Moon, and I can’t get over the fashion!!!
This was my interview with the Executive Producers from Constantine. I asked a question to David S Goyer regarding the rumors on Constantine and the bisexual erasure that has been floating around the internet.
I tried to keep my question respectful, as I’m a junior journalist, and didn’t want to rock the boat. …getting accused of being a fake geek girl, being told that because he wasn’t bisexual until 12 years into the comics it doesn’t really matter….was not what I expected. The guy picked a fight with me, and as someone who genuinely has loved his screen writing work, I was really disappointed.
I understand that he may be defensive, given the amount of questions he’s been getting on the subject recently, but speaking to me like this wasn’t…called for?
I will say the other producer, Daniel Cerone, was very nice and gracious, as was the entirety of the cast. I can only hope that Mr. Goyer was just running on little sleep.
But still, some of my followers wanted me to ask the question, and I did. Here is your answer. (Also I know I should have said Vertigo, not Image—that I got some of my facts wrong, but I was a bit flustered, so I think I can be forgiven the mistake).
I think the absolute worst part of this is the fact that both of them (meaning the producers, not Mr. Goyer and the interviewer) seem to be implying that the only way to explicitly acknowledge his bisexuality onscreen is to have him sleep with a man. That and the fact that he is basically saying over and over again that bisexuality is just unimportant (and yes, that really is the implication of “it’s unimportant to the character” it really really is.) Apparently being a smoker has waaaaay more affect on what kind of person someone is. That’s new information to me.
I won’t be watching this show and I honestly just utterly loathe this bigoted sack of shit who is reponsible for it
Any clueless fucking moron who thinks that a characters sexuality is ‘unimportant’ is the kind of cretin whose work I am not going to have ANY interest or desire to support with either my time or my money
Honestly seeing this bullshit from David S Goyer doesn’t surprise me in the least. I don’t know whether he’s got a problem with bisexuals or whether he’s just being a good boy and doing what the network tells him because their too fucking cowardly, WEAK and SPINELESS to have an openly bisexual hero starring in their show and he’s too pathetic to insist upon it…nor do I care. I loathe COWARDS as much as I despise bigots
Either way, I’m not wasting one second of my time on watching Constantine
You know why he wasn’t shown as bi until 12 years into the comic? BECAUSE THE CHARACTER WAS INTRODUCED IN 1985!! Are they seriously advancing the argument that his bisexuality isn’t important because it wasn’t part of the original story — which was written during the height of panic and misinformation about AIDS, in which gay and bisexual men were regularly demonized in media with virulent homophobia?
It isn’t 1985 any more and these excuses just don’t cut it. Especially not when delivered with a smug grin like David S. Goyer is excited to have a ‘gotcha!’. The cultural climate today is VASTLY different then in 1985. I don’t think he realizes how awful that makes him and his show look that they are building excuses around what was a really dark time for the queer community.
Also I’m not sure I understand what Daniel Cerone is saying about making the story darker and the lack of interference from NBC. It doesn’t really help their case. Is he arguing that no one at NBC told them to strip the bi from John Constantine? Because then it sounds like the change is just coming from their personal prejudices against bi men. There are more ways to show a character is bi then to have him jump in bed with a dude. Seriously. Your excuse is ‘it’s not network pressure we’re just lazy writers’?
David Goyer is canon a massive tool.
Also, they suck at math. Hellblazer #51 was March 1992. That’s seven years, not 12 (and it took me 21 to come out so they can kiss my heiney. Like no one’s ever stayed in the closet a while).
