y would u do that 2 a person ever
I am so tired of seeing female characters getting raped, beaten, and killed—all for titillation or to move along a male character’s arc. Call her the Manic Pixie Dead Girl.
Or ‘raped girl’, for that matter. I won’t be watching the new season of [SPOILER] because I found out that a major female character will be sexually assaulted. It’s become impossible to enjoy most quality television shows because the hurt or endangered women device is so frequently used. And if a character is pregnant, forget it—you pretty much know she’s a goner.
Yes, dead or harmed women in television is nothing new. There are entire series dedicated to the practice (I’m looking at you, SVU!). But lately, I’ve just found it too…stressful. I watch my favorite female characters with my heart in my throat, just waiting for the inevitable to happen. Women have to fear and anticipate violence and sexual assault in their everyday real life—I don’t want to fear for it in my entertainment as well. It’s bad for my soul.
Edgar Allan Poe once wrote, “The death of a beautiful woman is, unquestionably, the most poetical topic in the world.” Too many male writers and directors buy into this narrative. But I don’t have to."
also something that’s been bothering me for a while
It’s okay to date someone that you don’t love, or don’t think you’ll ever love. It’s okay to date someone and have absolutely no intentions of marrying them ever. It’s okay to have…
Would you care for some refreshments?
oh that’s cool they made the bottles look melted into the gr-
What is love?
Apparently only for white people.
Dude, you do realize this ad is Italian right? Those people are Italian, because it’s an Italian ad. Italian people are typically white. This ad is suppose to be about acceptance in THEIR country, why would they have models that don’t look like they’re from their country?
I’m gettin’ real tired of tumblr’s attitude. I’m probably going to get a lot of hate for this, but here we go.
Not everywhere is as mixed as North America. You go to places like Japan and it would be really weird to see a white person in their ad, it’s no different for places like Italy and Germany where people are mostly white. In North American we seem to have a decently even mix in a lot of areas so it’s a little off-putting when there’s only a certain race -generally all white people- depicted, where it’s completely normal and would appear really strange otherwise for other countries. Like you wouldn’t go to China and demand they show white people in their ads there, so why would you do the same for a country that has very few PoC compared to it’s population?
As the person above me said, why would they have models that don’t look like they’re from their country in their ads?
Seriously, I am Italian, and FUCK YOU. Our country has huge problems with homophobia, there isn’t even one single law to protect homosexuals. Most European countries have legalized marriage and adoption (or at least talked about it), but not Italy. The Catholic community does everything they can to block the law against homophobia. Last month, a 14 years-old killed himself because he was gay. You have no idea how much that kind of thing matters in Italy, all you can fucking do is whine about Tumblr about the fact that they are all white. Yes, in Italy the majority of the population is indeed white. Not the rest of the world is like fucking North America. So before you come whining about it on Tumblr, get your facts right.
I love it when reality slaps the fuck out of Tumblr.
Jon Snow interviews Charlie Brooker on Channel 4 News [x]
YOU KNOW NOTHING, JON SNOW
A coffee pot can be a coffee mug if you just don’t fucking care
It’s a mix of hell and outer space.
how are u going to tell me mermaids dont exist then
Yes I got some messages
about how my art is apperantly racist and once I got one telling me to kill myself
but guess what I’m still here
My way of dealing with it is to never ever give in
I just fire my shots right back. Not with insults because I refuse to lower myself to that level. If a arguement is totally unreasonable I point that out.
If it’s something ridiculous like saying I should kill myself I use humor
Because humor is the thing I do best and that’s closest to me and it makes the feelling les worse for yourself :)
And you know
noone ever EVER deserves hate.
You are not a horrible person or whatever that person said to you.
They just make you think that way about yourself.
Just look at this message you send me. You sound like an incredibly sweet person.
Haters are just bored peolple that want attention
And guess what for every one of those there are at least 10 people that have YOUR back. Look at all your followers if they didn’t like you they wouldn’t follow you. Think of you friends and family they care about you.
Don’t EVER let them get you down. Don’t feel bad or ashamed if it hurt you because it does.
But don’t give in to them! Go back on tumblr! post everything you want! Your blog is yours and you decide what you like and who you are.
If they come back, kick them in the troath and let them run away scared.
even works better if you don’t get agressive.
Just remember I’m right here. If you want to talk about what happened exactly I will not hesitate to help you out :)
