I would just like to point out…
so I hate to tell you but “Taylor Swift appropriates black culture in her Shake It Off music video” is kinda the next big drama we’re gonna have to deal with
and frankly it’s the worst of them all bc I have no way to defend that…
when I got up on my BOO WHITE FEMINISM horse and shot down Lily Allen and Miley Cyrus and Iggy Azalea for doing the exact…same…thing….like after that I don’t have a place to speak in Taylor’s defense I’m rly sorry to say push comes to shove I will not defend Taylor on that one 15 second part of her music video
what Miley and Iggy do is THEIR ENTIRE CAREERS are based on using black culture all right. Taylor for 15 seconds being in a hip hop dance scenario with black girls shaking their asses is not comparable, and I’m telling you here and now it will NEVER happen again haha, but I’m not gonna pretend like it’s not a legitimate problem aight just everyone know this!!!!!
I dunno I felt like the whole video was about appreciating and celebrating forms of dance. Like, the ballet dancers could say she’s insulting their trade but I didn’t really get that feel from it at all and I wasn’t looking as hard at that as some people do about race (NOTE I’M NOT SAYING PEOPLE ARE PICKING THINGS FROM NOWHERE I’M JUST SAYING THAT BEING SO PASSIONATE ABOUT DEFENDING SOMETHING LEGITIMATE CAN MAKE PEOPLE A LITTLE OVER PROTECTIVE SOMETIMES sorry if it came off as offensive I really don’t mean it that way). It just totally seemed like she was trying to be like “Look at all this awesome dancing that I am also trying to do because it is awesome” and show appreciation.
I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -
Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.
Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.
If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.
And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.”
"If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time. "
i’ve reblogged this before, but after watching “last comic standing” with my boyfriend and hearing way more period jokes than i thought would pass in 2014, gonna just put it out there again.
""but that book character has blue/grey/light eyes so obviously they’re white!!"" ://///
(Reminder that light eyes and blonde hair can be caused by conditions, such as Waardenburg Syndrome and albinism, but they are still real people that can (and should) be represented in media and such)
And also I can add that I have news for y’all, people can be black and naturally blonde
And literally people from ANY KIND can be a redheadand have freackles and such
So please, stop pretending only white people can have those characteristics, jfc, it’s sofucking annoying.
Boom de yada
Just to add on - While race is a very, very, very significant issue, race as we know it is a social construct. When you acknowledge that all people on earth have veeeery little genetic variation in the scope of things, it’s much easier to break oneself from the training of “only white people have this, only black people have that, only asian people have this trait, etc”
I’m always outraged when I see posts like this come around because I’m white and I live in whiteville, Canada where most people are white and never once did I ever think that poc couldn’t have freckles/blonde hair/x color eyes until I came on tumblr and other sites and heard people arguing that a character from a book couldn’t possible be a poc because of the aforementioned features and I’m just like do these people even understand how to human?
In which Minerva McGonagall doesn’t see failure, only special talents best reserved for the future.

US National Anthem in minor key.
Can this be the trailer music for the next dystopian movie?
If our government ever collapsed like in a book or a scary movie I really would love to see this become the national anthem
I mean I don’t think it makes sense as a national anthem… Nobody would choose this for a national anthem. Music for cinematic sweeping shots of a desolate and blighted apocalyptic America? Hell yes
