angry girl rants

Latina Girls Deserve More

Jesus Christ.
I’m going to rant for a hot second.
We’re either considered too black, too Latina, or too white.
If you’re mixed, you’ll never be considered a part of either culture.
Lighter skinned babies are idolized, but when they grow up, they’re no longer Hispanic enough.
Afro Latinas are too dark for many to consider Hispanic but not often considered a part of the black community.
LBTP+ Latinas are rarely recognized in LGBT+ groups and organizations.
Even light skinned Latinas are ignored by white feminists.
The “chola” style is ridiculed and considered “ghetto”, but fashionable on white girls.
Thick eyebrows on Latina girls are made fun of but on whites it’s yet another fashion statement.
The most famous and incredibly talented Latina artist is only noted for her eyebrows and not her art or story.
Speaking with a heavy accent is ridiculed.
Not speaking Spanish is ridiculed.
Deportation jokes, especially towards Mexicans, are considered ok by society.
Indigenous descent isn’t considered “native” to white standards.

I have so much more I am so angry.

The 13th Doctor: It shouldn’t matter, but it does.

Carrie Fisher. Robin Wright. Gal Gadot. Daisy Ridley. Melissa McCarthy & Leslie Jones & Kate McKinnon & Kristen Wigg.

Jodie Whittaker.

It shouldn’t matter. It shouldn’t matter, but it goddamn well does.

You know why I chose the women I did, up above? You know why I didn’t include Weaver & Hamilton & Theron on that list?

Because Ripley and Connor and Furiosa were given to us. They were put on the table by filmmakers who said either “it doesn’t matter if this character’s a woman or a man,” or who specifically chose a woman as the vehicle for the main story. Alien & Terminator were always ours. We didn’t have to ask, much less plead and beg, for Ellen Ripley and Sarah Connor. We weren’t looking for Furiosa, and Theron came out of nowhere the same way Weaver & Hamilton did.

But Carrie Fisher? Robin Wright? Yeah, Princess Leia & the Princess Bride were integral to their stories, but Buttercup was a pretty passive observer in her own story and Leia wasn’t there FOR GIRLS. She was there as the token female. The fact that she had an important role & agency is almost beside the point. I read something recently–maybe in Empire Magazine–where someone said something like “If you think about it, Star Wars is really Leia’s story,” and all I could think was WOULDN’T IT HAVE BEEN AMAZING IF IT HAD BEEN FILMED THAT WAY?

So General Antiope? General Organa? I feel like we *fought* for them. Diana? Rey? I feel like they’re from us saying “we want this so much, we deserve this, we hold up half the fucking sky, people.” An all-women Ghostbusters team? We kept saying “oh god please we want this this would be so awesome.” And so now, a female Doctor? It feels like another one we fought for.

And it shouldn’t have to. We shouldn’t have to be pleading for 1/13th of the pie (or less). We shouldn’t have to be THIS HAPPY to get it. And yet I am.

And I’m also SO ANGRY that it takes so little, such a crumb, to make me THIS HAPPY, when it shouldn’t even be a conversation.

And none of that even STARTS to touch on how 8 of the 9 (or 11/12, depending on how you wanna count it) women I’ve talked about are white ladies.

I don’t want white women to be the only ones gaining ground here. I don’t want increments. We don’t NEED increments. The actors are there. Storm Reid proves it. Zendaya proves it. Hannah John-Kamen & Frankie Adams prove it. And I want to see women of color in all these big amazing roles and films too. I don’t want this to just be a moment for white girls and indistinguishable blondes.

I want more, god damn it. I want it all, for all of us.

Another thing that pisses me off is the internet’s disapproval of OCs… and I’m not talking about ones made for specific series, even though they feel the same towards those, I’m talking original characters made for original worlds.

For the most part, people are really quick to judge someone bc they have an OC, bc that’s a “cringey 14-year old” thing to do. And like, fuck off? How is anyone supposed to create an original world without creating characters for it?

How do you think all your favorite series came to be? Someone had an idea for a character. And sure, a lot of those ‘someones’ in question are professionals, but that means jack shit. Everyone started somewhere. And that somewhere was with a small idea, be it for an original world or for the character that would live in that world.

All of fiction is just… the creator’s own characters. Own, original characters. OCs. 

Furthermore, why not just fuck off and let people have fun? They’re not bothering you by creating, are they? No. 

Just… just let people have OCs.

Things I Hear at School Everyday

“Boys will be boys”

“The wage gap between men and women isn’t real”

“Feminism is a nice word for misogyny”

“She’s wearing that to get the wrong kind of attention”

“Well if that nice of a guy abused her then she must have been dressed like a slut”

“Yeah I’m a girl but I’m not a feminist because I love boys”

“Yeah I’m a feminist…omg she is such a whore she made out with another guy last weekend”

“Girls bodies are not sexualized. You’re over reacting”

Over reacting.

I got dress coded for wearing leggings as I watched a boy walk by wearing a muscle tank and a speedo…it was spirit week. My leggings were black and completely solid.

My teacher told me that girls wear skirts to get attention from boys. I told her I wore skirts so I could feel good about myself and simply because I want to. She told me I was being disrespectful.

A boy in my class told me I was a misogynist. The definition of “misogynist” is “woman hater”. I told him what it meant and he told me it was rude for a girl to correct a boy. I told him I was a feminist and proud of it and he said…

“You don’t look like a feminist. Feminists are ugly lesbians who don’t shave and dress like boys.”

If I have to get dress coded, written up, and disrespected by men to show people what a feminist really is then so be it. I am truly disappointed in my generation.

so I watched the ep where Jess tells Rory he loves her last night

and what stunned me more than anything was the incredible… insight we get into Jess’ character that episode. lbr, more so than the entire season where he lived in Stars Hollow.

first of all: Jess returns to Stars Hollow for his car. He clearly isn’t with his father anymore and is sensible enough to know that, if he has a car, he has a roof over his head. It gives him some stability. It shows just how fiercely independent Jess is (a recurring theme this episode).

(tldr; Jess Mariano is a complex character who seeks emotional and physical independence due to the turmoil in his childhood caused by shitty parents, and everyone treats him like an asshole for it, and they shouldn’t because that boy is my cinnamon roll and I will fight anyone who says otherwise)

[[rest under the cut bc I went into full on rant mode and I’m not even sorry]]

The Clique

How many people hate us? More specifically me?

~ I’m black. +1 for the racists.
~ I’m female. +1 for the misogynists.
~ I’m pansexual. +1 for the homophobes +1 for the people who don’t believe that exists.
~ I got in the Clique when they were at their peak. +1 for the people who say “fake fans”
~ I’m in the Clique +1 for the people who say I romanticize suicide and depression and anxiety and that I like being like this
~ I like music that people around me don’t like +1 for the “special snowflake” insults
~ I like to call myself emo because that’s generally what my favorite bands are called and I feel comfortable with the term another +1 for the “special snowflake” insults


I’m sick of y'alls shit. Leave me the fuck alone, and leave the Clique the fuck alone.

How about we all agree to not have any more serious relationship drama happen to me for a few weeks? So my friendships and family relationships will all just be good and I can enjoy chats again without these constant looming worries in the back of my mind…please.

let’s just talk about maya hart for a second

this is a person who has been brought up in an unhealthy environment (what with her father leaving and finding another family and her mother always never being there to keep food on the table) and her escape from everything apart from art has always been riley. she found another family in the matthews’, considers cory and topanga her second parents and they all consider her a part of their family. through the years, she’s found safety in the matthews family and farkle, and now shawn, lucas and zay.

so just imagine how she feels like when her best friends, people who know her better than anyone, constantly undermine her feelings and use her life to make people feel better (in a sense “look, your life might be bad right now, but at least it’s not as bad as maya’s!”).

no.

i just don’t understand how everyone finds that completely acceptable, especially riley. “oh, farkle is feeling sad, maybe comparing his life to maya’s will help!” “maya, you like lucas? i better tell him right away without your consent!” “no, you don’t understand maya, everyone’s feelings have to come before yours even though you’re my best friend!” if they were really best friends like they always say they are, riley wouldn’t practically bully maya by constantly reminding of how her life is.

also, maya has grown up with the phrase “don’t hope for anything, don’t get disappointed” engraved into her head like a motto, which is why she pushes her feelings for lucas away for a YEAR AND A HALF to make her best friend happy. she keeps him at an arm’s length by teasing him, not realizing it’s what draws him to her. finally, she slowly starts putting her walls down and opening up to lucas, only to have to put them back up because her feelings get thrown around like they’re nothing. 

i want maya to have a breakdown and just scream at all of them. scream at riley for never actually listening to her and ignoring her feelings. scream at lucas for messing with her head and basically fucking her up emotionally in texas 2 and 3. scream at farkle for being there for her and then practically telling riley that her feelings don’t matter. scream at zay for being all in for lucaya to happen, but then question it when something actually happens. scream at all them for making fun of her and making her feel less than them, yet all she’s done is be loyal to them and stand up for them, no matter if they’re right or wrong. 

scream at them because she deserves better.

I really don’t get people saying you can’t ship Kurtbastian or Kurtofsky and think Blaine is a bad boyfriend because the other two bullied him. Do any of you watch the show? Both of those characters showed notable development, which Blaine still hasn’t done. And I swear to god if I hear the slushie argument against Kurtbastian again I may flip, Blaine is smaller than Kurt of course it would go in his eyes when it was aimed at Kurt’s CLOTHES.

Why I hate the ‘Black Magic’ music video

Okay so I’ve wanted to rant about this for a while so

They’re “unattractive nerds” (cause apparently messy hair and normal clothes is unattractive and makes you a nerd) and have a crush on this guy but oh no 

he has a girlfriend that is constantly making bitchy faces at them (ok but like I feel her cause you’re all there making googly eyes at her boyfriend) 

so after they discover ‘magic’ which makes them “beautiful and desirable” (as you can somewhat see by glitter surrounding them) and what do they do with their magic?

of course they use it to humiliate this girl (who really didn’t do much???) and she goes off running probably crying, (farting isn’t even bad, it’s natural??? but that’s the implication of the video k…) 

HMMM SO LITTLE MIX WHAT IS THIS SONG ABOUT AGAIN???

I guess you forgot to mention that you should make fun and demean another girl in order to get your confidence and man :/ 

BUT WAIT 

you see this ‘nerdy’ guy here? The girls behind him are laughing and bullying him. 

aww they all feel sorry for him, Little Mix will probably use their magic to make him more conventionally attractive to get the girls like they did on themselves right?

apparently not… (the photo isn’t that clear but they’re all surrounding him and end up all around him and kissing him)

so basically if you’re a guy you shouldn’t have to change yourself in order to get hot girls but if you’re a girl you need to change in order to get your man even if you have to bring down other girls on the way :)

It’s kind of funny. I was just thinking about how my friend always laughs at me because she notices how I respond to people who aren’t black and are complimenting me on my hair (I’m usually having long box braids or various styles of twists). After thinking about it for some time, I’ve just recently come to realize that I don’t think I necessarily like it when someone who isn’t black compliments me on my hair. It’s like a bittersweet. I can take the compliment, smile and say thank you, but then afterwards, this person wants to proceed to have a conversation to discuss with me what little knowledge they think they have about Black hair. First, they toss up a question like, “How long did it take to get it done”? I answer. Then they proceed to say something like, “Oh yeah, cause my friend also says hers take the whole day to do too.” Mind you, this friend they like to cite as their reliable source is most likely the single black friend they have… Okay girl. 🐸☕️  Now, even though this isn’t the most ignorant of conversations I’ve ever had with a non-black person regarding my hair, this is probably the most frequently taken route. Either way, the one thing they all have in common is that they end with my lack of patience.

Okay, but the fact that so many underaged cg/l blogs actually have to try to justify themselves in their bios to the adults in this community to avoid getting hate-mail is a really sad problem?? Hate-mail is a problem in general here. Like I completely understand if littles/caregivers who aren’t underage don’t want to have anything to do with younger community members. That is completely their choice and that should be respected. but this is supposed to be a place where littles and their doms can come to express themselves and act how they want and feel safe, regardless of age. Whether or not you support them, there are always going to be young littles, and going out of your way to harass them just because they’re underaged is terrible and it needs to stop. Yes, at one point cg/l stemmed from BDSM, and there is definitely a good amount of people that are involved with it in a solely nsfw way, but things have changed. Everyone interprets the lifestyle differently, and you all need to realize that. Regardless of it’s roots, some Cg/l relationships can be and are sfw, and seriously, if you don’t like seeing a blog, there’s a block button for a reason. There’s a living person behind that computer screen. A person facing accusations and derogatory remarks in the one place they were supposed to be able to let go. Saying hurtful things to them just because you don’t approve of their choices or think their life-style isn’t ‘legitimate’ because they’re younger is literally improving nothing, it just ends up ruining someones day, so stop it. You’re supposed to be the adults here, act like it.

“Why are you a feminist?”

because people are still asking that question

because women are payed less than men in approximately 99% of professions

because chris brown can still have a career after assaulting rihanna but miley cyrus takes her clothes off and there’s a huge scandal about it

because currently it is estimated ten million more girls are out of education than boys

because we’re expected to be mature but hairless like a child, in control but not bossy, sexy but not slutty and definitely not a prude, intelligent but not opinionated, independent but reliant on men, natural but look like the girl in the magazine etc etc

because men are expected to be tough yes have some feelings, love their women but not to let them take control, to assault and let women assault them etc etc

because being called a girl, pussy or a bitch is an insult

because my best friends boyfriend and 90% of my male friends think girls who wear revealing clothing are asking for rape

because every person who identifies as female should be allowed to get married, have kids, have a career, go to college etc etc without expectations

because tampons and sanitary pads are stupidly expensive

because some people reading thing will have flinched at the fact i just said “tampon”

because there are men out there whose job it is to make young girls feel like absolute shit about themselves just so they can sell the next best beauty product

because female masturbation isn’t considered normal while men can talk about their own penises for hours on end

because feminists are still seen as crazy lesbians who don’t shave and some still feel like they have to defend themselves by claiming they’re not any of those thins when in fact if i want to be a passionate lady who likes other ladies and can’t be bothered to shave my legs every twenty minutes then that’s my choice and if i want to be someone who wears make up and shaves and goes out partying then that’s my choice and if i want to be a combination of the two or anything in between then that’s. my. choice.

because i believe anyone who identifies as a female is a fucking badass and deserves the same rights as every privileged old white man sitting around and making laws about our bodies

because how can you not be

So this just happened....back me up here

I go to a small catholic school and we are taking a trip to the city. We have been discussing the rules of what we can and can’t do. First of all the boys and the girls, while on the bus, must be separated to boys in the front girls in the back. Okay, that bothers me a bit, but I can sort of understand that.

But what REALLY ticked me off is the dress code.
Now, understand, I do not like to dress, showing off much of my body and I understand there has to be certain rules about dress codes but ALL OF THE DRESS CODE IS ABOUT GIRLS. Our teacher literally JUST said this and I am fuming. She said

“Girls, you are not allowed to wear shorts.”

Then one of the boys asked, “Can we wear shorts?”

She said yes.

We politely asked why we could not wear shorts and the boys could. I even explained to her that we would not be wearing shorts that are up our butts. She said no. I am so angry, please like and reblog if you agree! Please back me up on this so we can prove a point. If this isn’t sexism, I don’t know what is.
