REMINDER: if you have a vagina and want to use Plan B as an emergency contraceptive, it loses effectiveness if you weigh more than 165 lbs (74.84 kg) and is completely ineffective for those that weight more than 176 lbs (79.83 kg) (x)

Whhhhat?
Excuse me.
Let me spread the shit out of this.

This is horrifying. And sadly true.

  • White people to Asian people: We don't trust you, so we're going to put you in internment camps. Go back to where you came from.
  • White people to Latinx people: You're not allowed to come into this country. We don't want you.
  • White people to Black people: You can't use that bathroom or that school. That's for us. Use that other one.
  • White people: Wow, you using the term "people of color" is awfully divisive. Why are you making this an "us versus them" thing?

"He’s essentially obsessed with Patsey." — Michael Fassbender on his character Edwin Epps

"Patsey is a young slave girl on Master Epps plantation. She is the object of the master’s affection and cruelty. He’s madly in love with her and he takes it out on her violently." — Lupita Nyong’o on her character

"Lupita [Nyong’o] is a complete newcomer. Straight out of drama school and so bright and so poised and prepped. Is really impressive." — Michael Fassbender

"It was a dream come true to get to work with Michael [Fassbender] on my first film. What gets captured on camera is what it’s actually happening in the scene, so he’s terrifying but he’s also really a gentle person in real life, which made it safe to do the things I had to do with him." — Lupita Nyong’o

I WOULD NOT CALL THIS “LOVE”

she needs to. read enslaved women narratives … if that was love .. you need to redefine what it means .. cause none of our ancestors were experiencing love. from Masters

That is not love. It is rape, manipulation and abuse and I am tired of people sugar coating the amount of rape, mutilation and abuse Black women suffered at the hands of white men (and white women, who would abuse the slave women after they were raped by the slave owners and overseers, and even more so if they bore the child of their rapist.)

Black women had no legal protection. They were not even seen as human beings. Stop this bullshit

People need to read Kindred and stop deluding themselves about the realities of how shit really goes down.

If this was “love”, why did Epps viciously whip Patsey for leaving the plantation to get a bar of soap because his evil, racist wife restricted her from having soap for bathing.  

Why did he repeatedly rape her to the point where she asked Solomon to help her commit suicide.

This isn’t love, it’s abuse. 

Stop romanticizing the abuse Black women suffered at the hands of white men. 

It is so disturbing that anyone could describe THIS as “love”. *shudders*

When disabled people say they don’t want to be treated differently, we mean we don’t want to hear your voice go up 5 million octaves as you talk to us like we’re toddlers, or see your face contort into a big plastic smile when you see us. 

We mean, treat us with the respect and dignity a human being has every right to.

We do not mean, ignore our disability and hold us to abled standards. 

Abled people just don’t get that.

ok i love feminist critiques of the simpsons (there are never enough of it!!) but the differences in gender dynamics of the simpsons v family guy is always something people leave out when they compare the two and i was just so happy to see something about it!!!! i LOVED the last line about how seth macfarlane sees women so much, im always trying to say something like that but you put into the perfect words!! ive been fighting with macfarlane stans for the past two days (one of them called me

2/2: called me the c-word WHILE defending macfarlene’s misogyny so you know they’re classy!!) and this paragraph helped me with half of the rebuttals!!! ok i just had to say something but it was so good!!!

Wow thank you a TON elisabethmoss! I’m completely BLOWN AWAY that you quoted me like that, That’s never happened to me before on tumblr and it feels pretty darn good :D

I’ll be honest though. I have no idea what a “macfarlane stan” is. Even still, I’m glad that I helped you find the words to defend your point! Another confession I have to make is that I’m not at all informed on the current debates about “Family Guy” and “The Simpsons”. I really just jumped into this discussion to make my point about the gendered dynamics of the show, which I noticed hadn’t yet been really discussed (There is still SOOOOO much more to be said though and I encourage everyone to consider contributing to the discussion!!!). 

Thanks again elisabethmoss!!! YAY, you really brightened up my day with this!!! I hope that more people will read my critique of The Simpsons/Family Guy crossover, like it, learn from it, and reblog it  too!!! (that’s asking a LOT though lol)

Cheers friend!!!

"One aspect in particular that got to me was Meg and Lisa’s story and how they were really the only female characters to GET a story this episode. And I think their story is SO INTERESTING because it compares and contrasts how both shows deal with the social construct of girls and girlhood. While in “The Simpsons” girls are encouraged to educate themselves, be independent, and strong, and really to ask questions (through the character of Lisa), the “Family Guy” will throw girls’ attempts to develop themselves as human beings in the trash (like when Peter throws the Saxophone Lisa gives Meg in the trash). MacFarlane demonstrates here for the zillionth time that Meg’s utility in the show is purely as the (unfunny) punchline of a sexist joke; someone to make fun of, call ugly, physically assault, and so on. This, I think, is really definitive of how MacFarlane views girls and women in general: A lame, unfunny, sexualized, usable, disposable, joke." by feministingforchange

HEY SPOONIES LISTEN UP !!

Some of you may know this but some of you may not

If you have an IPhone and you updated to iOS 8 you can make a medical ID bracelet with the health app!

As someone who always carries their phone around in case anything health related may happen this is really, really great.

You can put medical conditions, medications, allergies, medical notes, emergency contacts, and blood type. 

The best part is that you can access it through the lock screen by hitting the emergency buttion so it’s pretty easy to get to 

This is great for when you’re in the ER, need to give info to paramedics or just want to carry around important medical info in case you need to share it for whatever reason

I’ve been wanting to get an actual Medical ID Bracelet but you may be able to store more info on this 

Thought I would share !

The ONLY reason white people really believe black pride is white hate, is simply because white pride IS MOST DEFINITELY black hate (along with all the other colors)

100% true. You should follow the same logic with jealous partners. If they don’t trust you when you’ve given them NO REASON to distrust you, it’s probably because they can’t be trusted… Time to move the fu*k on!!!!!!

i wish you’d move that bullshit on somewhere. this post has nothing to do with relationships.

I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to offend you or try to change the subject. I just saw what I consider to be an interesting and important connection and drew it. I usually fight the urge to make these types of off-topic connections because you’re right, they muddy the discussion. But I have fibromyalgia and I’m feeling particularly foggy and shitty today and this just got past me. Consider this my formal apology.
