NO COUNTRY FOR TOLD MEN
”Do I have an intimidating face? Not many men come up to me and give me one-liners.” — Natalie Dormer for GQ Magazine (x)Oh mygod
I don’t understand the tumblr-wide obsession with lumpy-faced reptilian oatmeal men.
It baffles me just how many people think these men are the physical embodiment of sex. I know everybody has different tastes in what they find attractive, but I’d be willing to bet the majority of fans wouldn’t give any of these men a second-glance if they were just average, everyday guys walking down the street.
I’m starting to wonder if there’s some sort of tumblr-wide competition that I’m not aware of where everybody looks for the ugliest men in tv or film, then attempts to build the biggest fanbase for them.

Anonymous asked: I volunteer in a second grade classroom, and one of the little white girls asked a little black girl if she dreamed of being white. The little black girl looked at her and said "No, because I only dream of my life being better, not worse."

This man definitely speaks through his actions and his genuine and sincere aesthetic! A representation of who he is and what empowers him! Much Respect!

avril lavignes hello kitty video was deleted from youtube and then billboard posted this
I’m willing to reblog this screenshot. There’s no way in fuck I was going to subject my followers (or anyone else) to that fucking video, though. I saw and heard this shit yesterday And so many times I was just like “what the FUCK are you doing?!” Six SECONDS in, and it was like the creepy ‘japanophile’ checklist had been totally filled out. Like, really? FUCKING really?!
And can I just mention how fucked up and weird it is that she had the backup dancers (and I’m using the term loosely because they didn’t get to dance much) as like a living prop wall or background behind her? Like, I don’t understand! How do people not see how that shit looks? And really, she has to have seen Gwen Stefani, right? Like…. what the fuck is she doing?!
I saw a few people writing bits here and there about how fucked up this whole thing was (and I salute them because that list could roll down the street if it were written in full) and I was just stuck on “what the fuck are you doing?!” I still am, actually.
But yea, don’t watch this. Or do, to understand that it’s actually worse than you think. The post that convinced me to press play actually stated very clearly that it’s worse than you think. Lawd. I’m just glad that I can’t hear it in the back of my head anymore.
Please excuse my ranting. That song and video really are terrible.
I did. I watched the whole damn thing.
It never gets better. All you see is a white girl equating certain aspects of Japanese secular culture in terms of : language, fashion, food, style, etc. and making herself the lead in this fantasy of silent fawning Japanese. As if Japan doesn’t have their own music artists and would go gaga over AVRIL LAVIGNE!
And when she did the CAMERA thing? The old tourist camera cliche…thing?! “Asian people take a lot of photos right? Isn’t that what they do?”
I just…It’s the 21st century!!!And yet that’s the time when this appropriation takes place (specifically, of Japanese culture). I’d say this even if Avril Lavigne was Black or Hispanic or Indian or any of ethnicity: STAHP!!!
IMPORTANT MOMENTS IN HISTORY
Y’all don’t know the feelings I have about Njena.
Also, she’s mad nice in person.
"Be the bigger person"
is bullshit advice.
My bigness is not determined by my capacity to quietly absorb bullying, degradation, or abuse.

our hundred and seventy-six people were aboard the Sewol, which tragically capsized on Wednesday — one of them was 22-year-old Park Ji-young. She worked in the cafeteria, not as part of the crew. The ship’s communication officer announced to passengers that it was “more dangerous to move” than to risk a disorderly evacuation. Frigid water was filling the ferry’s lower levels, causing it to list hard to one side.
The crew didn’t stick around to help anyone else. It was Park who stayed behind to calm down frightened children and pass out life jackets. She didn’t save one for herself, and she told passengers that she wouldn’t leave the boat until every passenger was safely off and accounted for. "After saving you, I will get out," she reportedly said. "The crew goes out last."
"Park pushed shocked passengers toward the exit even when the water was up to her chest," said one witness.
