A most excellent lesson in self-defense à la Agent Gracie Hart.

Friendly reminder that Miss Congeniality featured a practical self-defense lesson in the middle of a Hollywood movie while also dealing with with issues of sexual assault and victim blaming, dismantling the myth that all feminists need to look and act a certain way, featuring women of color in the pageant without it being any kind of issue, and bringing in an awesome female villain because women can be any kind of character thank you very much.

Rock on, Gracie Lou.

"recent adoption of twerking"

white women need to just shut the fuck up forever.

everyone you love will eventually disappoint you. 

I find it funny how they only attacked Beyonce and Rihanna (black women), but didn’t attack any white women like Katy Perry or Lady Gaga. I don’t even know who these bitches are and I plan on keeping it that way.

It’s so frustrating when white women talk about black female sexuality in famous black artists because our history of sexuality and liberation from patriarchy is SO FUCKING DIFFERENT from white women’s.

I don’t want to put all black people under an umbrella, but black people who were enslaved from the South and West parts of Africa didn’t all come from backwards-ass woman-hating patriarchal societies. Our earliest forms of music and dance include sex because NOT EVERYONE FUCKED UP SEX, WHITE PEOPLE. As it turns out tons of people have lived for millennia without equating sex to evil.

Like hello?! Our female artists were out here killin the music game throughout the whole history of African American music. All of the genres which we invented have prominent figures both male and female, before white woman singers were even taken seriously. AND WE’VE BEEN SINGING ABOUT SEX AND SELF EMPOWERMENT SINCE THE HISTORY OF AF AM MUSIC.

So back the fuck up white women. Stop talking about our artists. They are from a different culture than you that is struggling between being shaped simultaneously by your sexist culture and our music tradition. When Beyoncé sings about sex and self empowerment, it is not faux. She is LITERALLY following female African American musical tradition, which you don’t know about because nobody ever compelled you to care about black people. You are BEING RACIST when you assume all women experience what you experience.

And if you’re a white woman in the music industry you should be doubly ashamed of yourself. Is your music history whitewashed or what?

I think Hiccup and Astrid are the best animated couple ever.

I love how their relationship isn’t a major plot point for the films. Astrid isn’t there as a reward for the hero, she is also his best friend (next to Toothless of course). She didn’t stop being a warrior after she became a love interest (and Hiccup wouldn’t want her to, he loves her for it).

They talk about their problems. They fight their enemies together. And they trust each other.
