|—||A girl in my creative writing class said this in response to a story we read about witnessing intimate partner violence and it really fucked with my head because I’ve never, ever, ever, thought of it that way. (via astronomized)|

Lemme reblog again and let you know why casting that white woman as the female lead in “Drive” was so fucking wrong and fucked up.
Director Nicolas Winding Refn literally gave Carey Mulligan the part because she “seemed pure,” like someone he wanted to protect.
No, really. He literally said that shit.
These traits were ones he literally did not consider a Latina for. He picked her specifically because he fit that damsel in distress imagine that’s been coded as white. Latinas were not even given the opportunity to audition for the role.
Let me post this again so people can see how we continuously allow (require?) movies to whitewash and erase POC out of media/our consciousness
When you see this sort of thing, its obvious what spawned the cute gamer girl selfies.
I am that 200 lb girl with a bag of chips next to her and you know what I am still cute as hell.
Sorry, but I hate it when I see shit like this like “lol, see, I don’t fit your standards thus you are the loser!!” Like what if I am 200 lbs, like whoa you got me I’m a loser I can only gain respect from society if I fit their standards of beauty.
I know that is not the intention of this post but fuck me if I am sick of replies like this. You don’t gain respect from people like this by fitting into their standards. You did not put down their arguement by putting down others. You make them respect you even if you’re 200 pounds and eating chips because I am a cute as hell human being.Reblogging for comment, because well said. Thank you.
My ninja Elon goin inwards!!
The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water.
I need feminism because females students made up the majority of my 12th grade high school classes: math = 82%, chemistry = 77%, physics 80%, english = 82%. But we’re not even close to being equally represented in what we’re learning in school.
The # of pieces of literature we read with a female lead character: 1
The # of female authors we read: 2
The # of women in history we learned about in-depth (in the entire course): 1 (Margaret Thatcher)
# of women we learned about in the sciences and math: the textbooks made some attempt to occasionally mention females in sciences. HOWEVER, they were always placed to the side of the page, out of the main text.
FEMALES made up the majority of my classes.
So why can’t we be equally represented in our own education? WE DESERVE BETTER! <3
I went to a small school in a rural area in Canada, so I know that my class stats may be different from others in city schools. However, this is still a problem in our education system!
