remember when la/—lond/es said nicki minaj was “”“appropriating lesbian imagery”“”
And remember how they stan lady gaga but hate nicki minaj
And went on a witch hunt about nicki “lying about bisexuality” but didnt say a word other than like one sentence when lady gaga blatantly said she lied about being bisexual to get fans
"I’m glad that Shonda Rhimes saw me and said “Why not?” That’s what makes her a visionary. That’s what makes her iconic. I think that beauty is subjective. I’ve heard that statement [less classically beautiful] my entire life. Being a dark-skinned black woman, you heard it from the womb. And “classically not beautiful” is a fancy term for saying ugly. And denouncing you. And erasing you. Now … it worked when I was younger. It no longer works for me now. It’s about teaching a culture how to treat you. Because at the end of the day, you define you."

Clouds Crashing Over Nebraska
Storm chaser Alex Schueth captured timelapse of a rare cloud formation called undulatus asperatus during a storm over Lincoln, Nebraska earlier this summer. The term, which translates to “roughed or agitated waves,” describes the bizarre rolling pattern formed by the clouds. Observers have noted that the phenomenon gives the impression of being underwater looking up at the surface at waves. Margaret LeMone, a cloud expert with the National Center for Atmospheric Research has taken photos of asperatus clouds for 30 years, and considers it a likely new cloud type.
THE ONGOING SAGA OF THE FRAGILE WHITE
The Daily Show aired its long awaited segment on the Washington, D.C., NFL team name, in which fans were confronted by Natives on the set.
Before it even aired, the segment proved controversial. The satirical cable television news program had recruited team fans for the segment via Twitter; four were ultimately chosen to participate. But those participants told the Washington Post they felt like they were attacked.
Kelli O’Dell, who says it was unfair for The Daily Show to have her debate Amanda Blackhorse—the lead plaintiff in Blackhorse v. Pro-Football, Inc., which resulted in cancelling six of the team’s trademarks—says she felt like she was placed “in danger.” O’Dell later called authorities to pull The Daily Show tapes she had consented to appear on:Two days later, O’Dell said she called D.C. police and tried to submit a police report, but authorities told her no crime had been committed.
People want their right to be racist. But the minute they approach facing real life consequences—and mild ones, given what they should expect for years of violence and slurs—look how they shake and cry. Look how they flee and fly to the po-lice, understanding fully the institutional role played by cops.
she tried to file a police report, hahahahaha! foolish.
don’t use uteruses as symbol for feminism ok
- you’re excluding trans women
- you’re including some trans men
- you’re excluding cis women who may not have a uterus because they’ve lost it because of or to avoid #cancer
stop doing this it’s so gross
Sorry, every month my uterus gives me shit. (I have PMDD.) It apparently gives people with more privilege license to give me shit. So the choice to claim or ignore MY UTERUS IS MINE.
I want to be a good ally to my trans sisters, but some of you really need to examine the desire to police cis women’s relationships with their own bodies in an effort to validate your womanhood. I for one, am not having it.ETA: Okay, I’m gonna go there. I’m betting the original poster is a white MTF trans person. The imperialistic colonial style self-centered need to police and deny others’s realities to make oneself feel better just oozes from every crevice of the original post. Now THAT is gross.
