This is NOT the caption I want to see when I’m reading up on world news pertaining to Black Women.
Yes, you are stealing our subculture and erasing Black Women from it. Don’t pretend you’re innocent and blame less because you are fighting for your rights as well. You can still perpetuate white supremacy.
This whole article is pretentious, and why I’m skeptical about the use of the term “allies”. Activist and writers don’t live in the real word, In no way have wgm ever been an ally to us nor is it bw jobs to coddle them and ignore their bs. His entire view point is this romanticized relationship between BW and wgm. A relationship that does not exist. His dismissal of the article that started this shit storm is one of the most upsetting this about it. He’s telling a black woman her experiences are invalid and that we should be grateful for being ~allies~ even though said allies are constantly being racist and sexist, instead of telling his people to stop being assholes so we would want them as allies. It’s another article trying to use allyhood to tell black people what to do while simultaneously trying to hitch back on our oppression. Fuck all y’all.
Not even going to attempt to read it.
just reading the headline made me want to punch something

Too late. I already bought him a new video game and a pony. His bed time is never.
Adding to the problem, many male-skewing summer tentpoles are luring fewer females. That’s an issue because the women demo is wielding more influence. Moms and girls helped turn Frozen into one of the biggest successes of all time ($1.27 billion), and they have powered Disney’s Maleficent to nearly $670 million, including $222 million in North America — more than any other summer film aside from X-Men: Days of Future Past.
By contrast, females made up only 39 percent of Amazing Spider-Man 2’s debut audience, compared with 42 percent for 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man and 46 percent for Spider-Man 3. The same trend applies to Transformers: This summer’s Age of Extinction skewed 64 percent male during its first weekend, more than the previous two films, and it played the oldest. While the Paramount pic is doing huge business overseas, it is destined to be the lowest-grossing Transformers in North America. The same is true for Amazing Spider-Man 2, which has topped out at about $705 million worldwide, including a franchise-low $201 million domestically."
Hopefully this convinces Hollywood to diversify and take chances on more POC and female (and both)-led movies.
SAM WHAT DOES THIS SAY?
"I’m mouldy/rotten/dirty/filthy"…depends on the context. I’m not even joking.
I CAN CONFIRM THAT THIS MEANS “I AM STINKY/DIRTY/ETC” AND I AM GOING TO DIE I’M LAUGHING SO HARD
This pleases me greatly
This reminds me of that one time my friend convinced a bunch of Christians that the Hebrew phrase meaning “I eat ass” actually meant something else…
Oh Yeah I remember that, I convinced them that it meant “I thank G-d fr creating you” or something
My friend and I once managed to convince our other friends that the Hebrew word for “milk” was actually a really offensive swear word. It was great. We still call each other milk.
fyi ‘satire’ isn’t just ‘hyperbolic exaggeration of the same shit we usually see with a disclaimer that it’s different.’ There actually has to be, like, an element of condemnation in its thesis.
It’s not ironic if it actively celebrates what it’s condemning.
just wanted to put that out there
