I can’t accept that. I can’t accept that there was only one black woman in the entire film, who delivered one line and who we never saw again. I can’t accept that the bad guys were Asian and that although in China, Lucy’s roommate says, “I mean, who speaks Chinese? I don’t speak Chinese!” I can’t accept that in Hercules, which I also saw this weekend, there were no people of color except for Dwayne Johnson himself and his mixed-race wife, whose skin was almost alabaster. I can’t accept that she got maybe two lines and was then murdered. I can’t accept that the “primitive tribe” in Hercules consisted of dark-haired men painted heavily, blackish green, to give their skin (head-to-toe) a darker appearance, so the audience could easily differentiate between good and bad guys by the white vs. dark skin. I can’t accept that during the previews, Exodus: Gods and Kings, a story about Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, where not a single person of color is represented, casts Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton to play Egyptians. I can’t accept that in the preview for Kingsman: The Secret Service, which takes place in London, features a cast of white boys and not a single person of Indian descent, which make up the largest non-white ethnic group in London. I can’t accept that in stories about the end of the world and the apocalypse, that somehow only white people survive. I can’t accept that while my daily life is filled with black and brown women, they are completely absent, erased, when I look at a TV or movie screen.

THIS GOES FOR EVERY ANIMAL EVER. if you get an animal for your kid, that animal is still your responsibility. you need to research their care and you need to double check that it’s carried out properly and if your kid gets bored, SURPRISE it’s your responsibility now.
basically, your 8 year old kid can barely take care of themselves don’t even pretend like they can provide proper care for an exotic animal with specific (sometimes very difficult to meet) needs without some sort of guidance. teach your kids the importance of looking into proper care and providing it like my mom did instead of letting the animal suffer while you sit around apathetic.
also, letting your kid make an animal suffer and ultimately die is not a “good lesson” for them. animals aren’t inanimate objects.

This is very important.

Anyway today I was watchin my main jam, Spider-Man, and Peter Parker’s fighting BONE SAW in the cage match and he’s like “cute outfit! did your husband make it for you??” and when I was 7 that line was hilarious but now I’m like, screw you nerd maybe his husband DID make it for him. And then I started thinking about BONE SAW's cute husband making his tight wrestler's outfit and wishing him a good day at the ring RIGHT as Peter Parker started beating the crap out of him. And I was like, gosh, Peter Parker's being a jackass straight boy rn, I hope something bad happens to him. Then Uncle Ben died and I felt like I went too far

What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?

i can’t even appreciate the beauty of the sunrise after staying up all night because it’s just like. fuck. there it is. there’s the sun. i fucked up. why am i laughing. nothing is funny. the sun is there and it’s harshly reprimanding me for being awake all night. “this is the life you’ve chosen for yourself fucker” it says. i’m not laughing. i’m crying. there’s the fucking sun
