As long as they are all cis, straight, and white right?
White women will always scream for female representation as long as it that representation looks only like them.
But when brown people tried to audition for the Hobbit, they were told no brown people.
Wasnt no fuckin diversity in LOTR
but why would they be in a theater for 9 hours
this was something I added in my reblog but this commentary basically covers it. only thing I would add again is that it was Maori and other Pacific Islanders who were denied casting in the movie even tho it was their land and not white peoples.
Just. Look at this lovely music video and tell me you don’t feel PAIN at the fact that THAT landscape is ripe in your mind with white people instead. Just. Ugh. The lost potentials to white people.
"The singer, it seems, is a proud graduate of the school of "If I don’t blink, they’ll think I’m acting!""
"But Underwood just looked like she was twisting her face into a joyful expression over raindrops on roses. She looked like an emoticon for being constipated, if such a thing existed."
"And yet, without Underwood and Moyer selling us on this legendary love story, The Sound of Music Live plays like very expensive karaoke.”
Trans Model Carmen Carrera Is Transforming Fashion
Like most women, Carmen Carrera finds it a little rude when strangers ask questions about her genitals. But Carrera, a reality TV star, model, and, potentially, one of next year’s Victoria’s Secret’s “angels,” is trans, which means people ask her about them anyway.
I got the chance to talk gender—and fashion—with Carrera a few days ago during a Skype date. The call connected and I asked her to go on video. “I look like shit,” she whined, and then went on. Needless to say, she does not look like shit. She’s already got the mermaid-like Victoria’s Secret waves going on, and she has on minimal makeup, with the exception of black eyeliner and mascara. It’s a Saturday evening, and she wears a bare-bones, gray spaghetti strap top—the uniform of an off-duty Cindy Crawford in the 90s. Carrera seems to be getting more famous by the week, thanks to some of the amazing work she’s done lately. Plus, her fans made a petition calling for her to become the first trans Victoria’s Secret model.
Although she’s obviously been quite successful at this point in her career, Carrera still struggles with intense insecurity issues, and is constantly fighting the labels people try to stick to her. I ask her if there’s one thing she can’t stand being asked in the flurry of media attention.
“Yeah, when they ask me if I got the sex change surgery. It’s kind of weird. At the beginning of my transition when people would ask me, I would answer. But now, it’s kind of getting to the point where I don’t think that that’s relevant. Like, I wouldn’t sit here and ask you about your genitals.”
and just try getting any decent latin@ films streaming from netflix—they know we’re willing to pay, mm.
damn. this is so true, this is like, very much a huge pasttime in our family despite the lack of representation. i was excited just to take my great uncle benji to see After Earth and he was so happy to see little white centrality. his eyes lit up with intrigue the whole time, it was wonderful.
These statistics are very important:
Across the 100 top-grossing films of 2012, Latinos (who constitute 17 percent of the U.S.) are the most underrepresented group, with only 4.2 percent of speaking roles, according to the study.
And yet Latinos, on average, attended 9.5 movies in 2012, more than Asian (6.5 movies), African-American (6.3) and white audiences (6.1), according toNielson’s market research. In terms ofmovie tickets sold in 2012, whites (78 percent of the U.S.) bought 56 percent of them, and Latinos (17 percent of the U.S.) bought 26
Note that Latinos, Asians, and African Americans go to the movies more often than white folks, even though we are less likely to be featured in those movies…
Yup I could bet my life on this before this statistic came into my view. Awful.
This is why you cant trust women, even when theyre mouth is closed theyre still lying to you
you do realize that this is really hurtful right?
i did not do this to show how i am ‘lying’ to men or anyone, it’s not about how you, as a man, should feel about it - it’s about myself.
to me your statement sounds as if the left side of this picture is something awful or horrible. and no, it’s not. it is my face - with and without makeup. and whether i chose to wear it or not is MY AND JUST MY decision. and when i do, i do it for myself - so that i feel good about myself - not for you.
not to mention it’s the fucking patriarchy that demands women always wear make up and look 10/10, but when we go natural we apparently look like shit to them (not that she does in the slightest), and when we show ourselves in make up, these same men call us vain, liars, etc
patriarchy = telling women to look pretty, then tearing them down for doing it
and as she said, makeup is for HER, not for MEN, and not for YOU, fuck you scorpsswimmer
I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.
