My brother sent me a picture of a few young girls protesting outside of Party City in Harlem, today. They want Princess Tiana back.
Amazing! “Kids don’t see racial differences.” “Tiana is available online only” You go girls!!!
"Representation doesn’t matter."
"Kids don’t see race."
These girls just proved you all wrong.
if your boyfriend tells you not to cut your long hair because he likes it cut it all off while he’s out and spell out “i’m leaving you” with the pile of hair
I fucking hate Judge Judy so much
my mom has her on and she’s just so fucking mean and rude
I like the judge on People’s Court so much better like she can get loud and mean sometimes but only when people actually deserve it
Judge Judy is just so fucking condescending and she interrupts people and thinks people who are nervous are idiots well guess what they’re in court they’re on tv and you’re screaming at them of course they’re fucking nervous shut the fuck up
So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’
Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize. —Why it’s so hard for men to see misogyny

This is the proper reaction.
