the confederate flag is racist

"omg no it’s not! i’m just proud of my heritage!"

which is treating other human beings as property

"The Civil War wasn’t about slavery it was about State’s Rights!" 

yeah the state’s right to own slaves lmao



Very Nice. ♥

Damn, I love this! The poofiness of her skirt and the cut of it/position on her leotard is perfect, it’s just like how I imagined.



White girls

what the fuck are you talking about “white girls” she’s 100% right take your misogynistic bullshit out of here

"white girls" more like "frighteningly independent women that don’t fit my idea of how they should act"

From Gaston Velle’s “La Fée aux Fleurs” (1905).


"i love gay rights i just hate poor people and food stamps and single mothers, but not black people just "ghetto" people, and im kind of pro-choice but only sometimes did i mention if you can’t afford health care get a job?"

-fiscally conservative but socially liberal 



Please consider emailing Time magazine at to get them to reconsider not putting Laverne Cox on their list. She overwhelmingly got voted in at 91.5%, but was not put on there. Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood had 25% of the vote and was put on there.
The erasure of trans*women, and women of color needs to stop. Ms. Cox does nothing but good work.

I emailed. You should too





the look

So the internet just gave my tumblr name a whole new (literal) meaning. I was alerted to a photo of me gathering massive attention via a friend who linked me to a Reddit post titled “Don’t worry guys, I’m taking hipster to the next level.”Apparently some guy on the train uploaded this photo to twitter it has been spreading like wildfire since. Surprisingly when I read the thread on Reddit a lot of it was positive/supportive. I’m surprised by how unfazed and genuinely funny I find the negative comments. People’s theories as to why I am dressed like this, and who I really am are also really interesting. I’m dressed like this for a number reasons. Firstly, and fore-mostly, I genuinely like the clothes I am wearing. I’ve described my look as “anywhere from hipster chic to kawaii gangsta Harajuku princess”. This is the epitome of the latter. I love sailor moon, I love pink, those converse are kawaii as fuck and yeah fuck you I’m wearing Prada sunglasses. I don’t really dress like this all the time, but I wish I did more often. I mostly don’t because I want to keep the look fresh. I wore this outfit because I had an art exhibition at my college and wanted to express myself.I also find men’s fashion extremely limiting in both types of clothes, cuts of clothes and colours. Women have so many beautiful options. So I pillage their aisles a lot because I wanna look pretty.This was also a statement. As an artist I think fashion is incredibly important. This day, I wanted something that not only reflected my personality and artistic sensibilities but also have some social commentary. A lot of my work, or what I want my work to speak about, is sex and sexuality and notions of gender and gender roles. How many of you knew pink actually use to be associated with boys, not girls? Personally I think the idea of “This is a boy colour”, “This is a girl colour” or “Barbies are for girls”, “Power Rangers are for boys” is dumb as fuck. Creating social and cultural boundaries does nothing but limit the potential of a person. By dressing like this I am breaking that boundary for myself and attempting to reflect that sentiment.

Keeps getting better. Rock on, man.

Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision  in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion: 
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!  

I don’t think all of this is true. I’m a white woman and although I agree that the media does oppress black women and we need to see more black representation within beauty and fashion, I actually do think that black women are beautiful and worthy of appreciation, a lot of white women agree with me, and also that Lupita is stunning. I think you are also forgetting that just about every woman is shunned from the epitome of beauty and womanhood within the media, because not even the girl in the magazine looks like the girl in the magazine. So my point is that although I do not know how it feels to be a black women and be under-represented within the media, I am still offended by the racism and I still believe black women are beautiful and deserve that representation, I’m happy for Lupita, although once again I think no woman wins within the media as I, and every woman I know, do not embody the standard set for us. 

yeah idk why they would generalize all white women by saying “white women are offended by…” because I know I am not. Lupita is gorgeous and I’m glad she’s on this list because she deserves it. Just don’t lump all white women into one category because that isn’t fair.

What offends me is the fact that just because I’m white I’m automatically put into a category that I must be racist and I must be offended when black women are made out to be beautiful. Guess what, EVERY type of woman is beautiful. Personally, I believe Lupita is absolutely stunning and she 100% deserved this because she’s not only beautiful and flawless on the outside, she has a beautiful heart. So let’s stop generalizing white women and white people in general by assuming we are all racist, because that in itself is quite racist. 

all y’all need to shut the unholy fuck up it is embarrassing
