This is literally a Tumblr classroom.
This movie was Feminist drivel and that’s why I have to pretend I didn’t like the poem she wrote about Heath Ledger.

Little girl you think you’re not good enough.
Little girl you think you’re not pretty.
Little girl, that complexion makes you a queen.
Little girl, learn your history.
Your value is not in your hips, thighs or sex.
You are valuable.
You are precious.
Don’t wonder why your hair is so militant.
It will help you tell your story,
It will twist and coil with emotions and meaning.
Black child, you’re not just a color.
Don’t let them profile you.
When you’re grown, they’ll pay for your profile.
I see you.
Looking for a familiar something.
Something to latch on to.
A doll, a woman a role model.
I’m not asking you to twerk.
I’m asking you to dance.
Open your arms and become.
Like your texture.
Like your ancestors.
Know that representation matters.
Even when you think no one can see you.
When a woman sexually empowers herself, it becomes suddenly ”threatening, trashy, pornographic and devaluing” When a man sexually objectifies a woman, the female body and her essence its the ”status quo, boys being boys, business and ”sex sells” “
I’ve seen the video for Booty twice. I like the song and I like both the women associated with it. Women are not allowed to have dominion over their bodies despite what positions they hold in society. This has nothing to do with ”music going to shit” Mainstream music has basically been shit since eh 2007? Or am I being generous?
Womanhood, our bodies, curves and sexuality are all things that have been long used against us in order to downplay what’s really important. You shouldn’t be defined by your pussy or ass or tits but you are no matter what you may or may not decide to do with them.
Policing female bodies isn’t new.
For the women with kids still holding it together.
Stretch marks and all. Wrinkles too.
Own that shit.
You get your lumps and badges from your journey and no one can take that away.
I’d also like to point out the backlash surrounding this song and its visual seemly dwarf Anaconda. The black community might not be pleased with Nicki’s fuckery but it seems like, everyone has an opinion about what a performer who has been famous for her body for at least 15 years decides to do with herself .
Sexuality/ Sensuality doesn’t stop because you get older.
Asking a performer in the public to adhere to the idea sounds like a half baked argument.
I’m just thinking out loud though.
it was literally gold
House of mouse was the best. Was awesome seeing all the classic characters together.
This post have over 50000 notes. I think we should do a petition to get this show back. No, really, why not?
Receipts, receipts, we got em, quite literally. Here are four receipts which have gone public via internet in the recent past:
- “Ching” and “Chong” — That’s what Chick-Fil-A labelled two UC Irvine students in December 2011. The image was posted on the internet, blogged on tumblr, and the offending employee named Lia got fired amid much defensive PR fluff from Chick-Fil-A.
- “Lady Chinky Eyes” — That’s how Papa John’s in New York City referred to Minhee Cho in January 2012. Cho tweeted the receipt, prompting Papa John’s to post on apology on its Facebook page and terminate the offending employee.
- “Chinx” — That’s how Hooters in Fresh Meadows, Queens, described Kisuk Cha and his girlfriend when they ordered wings and shrimp there in September 2012. Cha sued. The employee resigned and as far as I know the lawsuit is ongoing.
- “Ching Chong Lee” — That’s what CVS in New Jersey named Hyun Jin Lee in February 2013. Following Cha’s example, Lee has filed a lawsuit. CVS says the employee will be “counseled and trained”.
They keep giving us these receipts and we’ll keep filing lawsuits. Let’s do this.
Always keep fighting.
