just think about y’all millions and millions of little dark skinned black girls are going to go to the supermarket with their parents this month and when they’re waiting in line at the check out aisle they’re going to look up and see Lupita Nyong’o being hailed as the most beautiful woman in the world god is amazing
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 bet if you opened his mouth the AOL screeching sound would come out
i want to create a tv show about a group of friends where they’re all queer except the one token cishet friend who’s only there to say stereotypical “straight”…
i’m gonna create an anime and the first episode is gonna zoom in on the person with bright blue hair sitting by the classroom window, then pan over to the kid with plain hair, the main character
and then there’s a running joke the entire show about how no one knows why the hell that guy over there has such weird hair
like, i guess this isnt even a particularly “”“adult”“” blog but theres something very unnerving about clicking through to a new follower and seeing “age: 14” on the sidebar. i feel like a chaperon at a highschool dance. leave some room for jesus
I never thought this sound would be represented in letters.
If you didn’t try to make this sound after seeing this gif, then you’re way too normal.
I don’t think I’ve ever reblogged something so damn fast.
How can you not be happy after seeing this?
My favorite haiku that doesn’t really qualify as a haiku but I still like to call it a haiku
Me (located in Iceland) and my friend (located in New Zealand) made the biggest sandwich of all time.
