a discussion we had in WLC concerning women.

What got me was the fact that the two black girls couldn’t fathom being chosen first.

:/

"It seems like preferences are okay as long as it’s not Black women. But then it’s also not okay for Black women to have preferences other than Black men."

Wow

But why is anyone surprised though? Everyday you get the same message that a black woman is not beautiful, is not special, is not anything. The whole world shits on black women and we at the bottom of the rung when it comes to everything and that includes love and appreciation.

It doesn’t surprise me but it still hurts when you hear it from people

PREACHHHH THAT LAST MUTHAFUCKING LINE !!!!!!!!!

And this is why I’m black women first foremost and ONLY!! I have zero internet in riding for any other race/gender. We’re the only ones who respect, love, and cherish us. I’m not keeping hope over no damn crumbs and I’m not mollycoddling a brotha. But I ask him this: will you still prefer black when you come up? Most likely hell no.

"Despite the outcries of people claiming that it would be "encouraging an unhealthy lifestyle", I do really believe that Disney should make a plus-size female character… Who ISN’T a villain or a side character! In a culture that tells people that they are inherently "bad" and not pretty if they don’t have a certain body type, I think it would present a really positive message to young people"

Anonymous said: Wtf do you mean consent to sex is not consent to pregnancy? lmfao that's how you get pregnant, are your retarded? Anyone having sex needs to be aware of the fact that you could get pregnant. It's not okay to abort an innocent just because you fucked up or "couldn't afford birth control". Sex is something to be taken seriously, and if one can't deal with the consequences, one should not be having sex. End of discussion.

pro-choice-or-no-voice:

End of discussion. Right. You send us an ask, but it’s the end of discussion. Are you ass-backward today or what? 

Consent to sex is not consent to pregnancy. Consent to a meal is not consent to food poisoning. Consent to driving is not consent to a car accident. 

Sex is not just for reproduction. Sex is wonderful.

Not everyone can afford birth control. Does that mean materially disadvantaged people do not get to have sex? 

Not everyone knows how to use birth control. Sex education pretty much everywhere is awful. Being misinformed or uninformed does not mean someone should be forced to have a pregnancy. 

It’s about time for you to crawl back into the hole you came from. And don’t every come by this page again if you think it’s okay to use ableist slurs. You’re actually such a joke. And I sound like a broken record.

And PatF is super underrated, people flat out shit on it when it had a VASTLY SUPERIOR story, characters, and soundtrack to Frozen and even Tangled. I actually personally know people who I love very much say they didn’t want to see The Princess and the Frog because “Disney just wanted to make a black princess,” and it breaks my heart.

curvellas:

that shit is wild true. i went to dinner at my ex’s gma’s house and met his aunt (who has two young, very handsome sons that i also met. one’s still in hs and the other is 19) and we got to talking about ‘kids these days’ as older black folk always tend to. so a few minutes into…

if everybody got a free miniature animal at birth that protected you, like a tiny elephant or dragon, the world would be a better place.

These are my extremely quick “fan” made designs for the upcoming Disney movie “Moana”.
Stop. There is a reason why “fan” is in quotations.
I am not a fan. I am full of dread. Disney is about to tackle a Polynesian princess and that terrifies me.
For one, I am so angry at all of the fanmade designs I have seen. The sexy stereotyped Polynesian designs that somehow condenses hundreds of different cultures into a tube top and a a ti-leaf skirt.
Do you have any idea how offensive that is. That would be like making Mulan and saying “Hey she’s Asian, let’s throw her in a yukata”. Do you know how offensive it is that people think that Polynesian is a singular race? Hint: Massively.
I picked four cultures out of the vastness of Polynesia and each design is clearly different from the next. Each design is 100% endemic to the culture it is from, and it’s not even the tip of the iceberg.
We are not a homogenized area of the world. We have different languages, traditions, and ways of life. We are not all the same. We are not coconut bras and grass skirts. We never needed compasses. We are celestial navigators - it hasn’t died out. We journeyed across the Pacific using the stars and waves to guide us. We perfected aquaculture and sustainable living. Our heritages are rich and varied and beautiful.
We are not a tube top and a ti-leaf skirt. We are not an indistinguishable fabric swathed on brown bodies with random flowers in our hair. Stop fetishizing us! You have the internet at your discretion, and this is the best you can come up with?
Secondly, the fact that Moana will be dealing with mythology in Polynesia makes me want to crumple up and cry. It angers me to no end that people keep playing fast and loose with things they think are obsolete. Most of us still believe in our Gods (myself included). My family has a heiau, as recent as one generation ago my family has stories of conversing with Gods. Yet, people act like it’s fair game. Last I checked if anyone made retcons to the undead carpenter millions threw a shitfit, but because we are a marginalized people our beliefs are not allowed some respect?
It makes me angry and I won’t apologize for it. It makes me angry that when I call out other minorities for falsely portraying or marginalizing my culture (and the cultures of my fellow Polynesians) I get the “well I’m a minority too so I’m excused”. That is the worst offense, when people who should know better still treat you like an obsolete toy to be bandied about as characters.
We are indigenous people and we deserve respect. We deserve for people to care about our culture. For people to be afraid that the nightmare which created whitewashed Pocahontas might happen to us. If you call yourself an ally, or self-aware, I demand that you fear for us. I beg that you question what may happen in the wake of what Disney has been spewing out. Don’t be part of the base that turns Moana into nothing more than a token.
We were too young to stop Pocahontas from being made. We are not too young to afflict a change and prevent it from happening again. Signal boost my words, or write your own. Do something. Don’t let a movie go out across the world that could damage those that have already taken heavy hits. Don’t be compliant, don’t be silent. Don’t DO that I beg you. I am begging you on my knees, I grovel to you.
Don’t condense our cultures to an easy stereotype. Don’t let our stories become distorted for entertainment. Fight for good writing, fight for good designs. Fight for a movie you would be proud to watch. Give us something more than a rebellious teen who is Polynesian simply because they say she is.
Please. Please. With all my heart, a’ohe hana nui ka alu’ia. No task is too big when done together.
P.S. The tattoo I did on the Samoan design is fairly incorrect. I ran it by some of my Samoan friends and while they gave me the all-clear, I should have done a better job (basically I should have asked their parents).
Traditionally, a Samoan woman would not have a shoulder tattoo or anything resembling a sleeve. She would, more than likely, have a malu tattoo on her thighs. I am so sincerely sorry. I thought I had my resources in order, and I didn’t. I am thoroughly ashamed and I beg forgiveness from any Samoans I may have accidentally insulted.
