In some ways, the laws of physics are comforting, because you can see them and be reassured that the Universe seems to run based on a series of mathematical equations which are, at least in principle, fundamentally comprehensible to the intellect.

But then you remember that mathematics aren’t always well-behaved, and are wholly indifferent to human perceptions of normalcy or comfort, and that these equations can give rise to (seemingly actual physical) places like black holes. And you imagine that you can go near a black hole’s apparent horizon and, even if you escape, a hundred billion years could go by in the rest of the universe within minutes of your time, but that, from the mathematical perspective, it’s all just the same as what makes a ball fall onto the ground.

Give me “Gorgeous” characters with scars and stretch marks, characters who have keratosis pilaris or pigmentation problems, give me dark characters with rough skin and worked hands, characters whose beauty isn’t defined by soft pale skin.

I am so tired of people feigning shock and outrage over others not wanting to remain friends with those who are directly or indirectly fueling discrimination. 

At the end of the day, I cannot and will not be friends with people who think that we should be directing resources toward conversion therapy, for people “suffering” from homosexuality (like Pence). I will not be friends with people who think that it is okay to subject black people to practices that were deemed unconstitutional, because they deprived them of the very civil liberties our Constitution was intended to protect (like Trump). I will not be friends with people who think that those who subscribe to Islam are any less deserving of love, respect, or refuge than their Christian counterparts. I will not be friends with people who think that it is morally sound to indiscriminately murder the children of terrorists. Nor will I be friends with people who speak ill of immigrants, when without immigrants, none of us would even be here.

A Look into Amanda’s Vision, The Princess Advert and IDW Comic Canon: Mona Wilder revealed? (Theory Post)

Theory:

“Mona Wilder” is the seventh Black Wing subject alias MOLOCH, trapped within the squeaky ‘stress toy’, and currently communicating through dreams and commercials.

She is “The Princess” in both the commercial seen in the main series, and possibly the insane ‘Princess’ child in the IDW Comic Series.

She is who persuaded Bart to get to (and possibly to kill) Dirk Gently.  

Evidence:

Amanda’s “vision” in S1 E3.

White Gaze did Miles Morales & Blackness Wrong

I’m typing this up all anxious so excuse the typos. Did yall see the recent issue of Miles Morales/ Afro-latinx spiderman being written by Michael Bendis? I have high hopes for characters like Miles but not when it’s written under white liberal bias view of blackness. In Spider-Man #2, the writer Michael Bendis gets the chance to insert Miles point of view on how he’s seen as the “Black Latino Spiderman” and drops the ball entirely. Peep:

I honestly don’t care about the Bendis fan appreciation that throws on they “I dont see a problem” goggles when he fucks up like this because this is a touchy sensitive subject for Black, Latinx, and Afro-Latinx folk who are constantly being erased in stories. What ever your personal views on the guy or his intent, forget it, his delivery of Blackness under white gaze failed Miles Morales badly and you can’t convince me otherwise unless he undoes this fuckshit in later issues that address the topic more maturely and further away from whiteness. Like I went into a heated discussion with my non black latino friend who was urging that because some non identifying Black, Latinx, Afro-Latinx folk exist (and I know they do trust me I come from a family of them) that should give Bendis enough reason to represent THAT type of Blackness to the world.

BULLSHIT!

You can’t just give these white writers a pass just because you feel represented and like the space is welcome to you. Oh! they at least got Miles reppin his Latinx side tho!

Interesting so Bendis has him openly identifying as ‘Hispanic’ no problem (even though younger ‘Hispanics’ mostly identify as Latinx - not that other reagan ass moniker) while getting all weirded out that someone is praising him for not being another white super hero. He [Bendis] clearly made the youtuber/fangirl of this fact seem like an annoyance, like her point of view is too much for Miles (in reality Bendis though cause he writting him..). I don’t give a fuck, that fangirl is all of us Afro-Latinx, Black, Latinx folks who were jumping at the fact that they encompassed a bit of all of us in the new Spiderman. She had every right to be excited of seeing a Spiderman that was Brown/Black, that’s a real world reaction of today! That was sadly minimized to a supposedly annoying caricature of fans. It’s unfair to those of us who have been clamoring to be represented. Most fucking government applications wont even acknowledge we exist, give us a damn break! It’s a slap in the face to those of us who already deal with that Miles Morales set up where you weren’t excited about being Black.

You coulda tactfully used those pages to incite excitement in other little Black babies and grown folk in general about being Black but nah you chose that white liberal garbage “Why does it matter?! Blackness should be nonexistent in anything ever cause make me uncomfortable when it are not about me!!”. It’s so aggravating. Marvel needa stop letting white people write Black characters if they’re gonna make us into the people they wanna see rather than who we actually wanna be. Like it’s so easy to be far removed from this issue and read right past it but it’s like how many times are you gonna allow yourself to be erased cause it makes a white person more comfortable to box Blackness into simplicity? I’m so tired of this and I’m more tired at the fans who jump at us for trying to talk about this. Give Miles Morales his Blackness back.

It’s okay to be a stereotype. It’s okay to be a flannel wearing, soft ball loving, butch lesbian. It’s okay to be a vibrant haired, loud feminist. It’s okay to be a smart Asian. It’s okay to be a ugg boot, PSL drinking, Tumblr loving white girl. You’re a twenty one pilots loving, fringe having, black Wearing emo kid? That’s okay. Are you a feminine, clothes loving, sassy gay man? Good. You are you. Are you a sassy, weave wearing, “fight a bitch,” black woman? More power to you. You’re a person and if you happen to fall under a stereotype that society placed upon you, you shouldn’t feel invalidated. You are you and that’s enough.

“Dark Skin girls don’t look that good in makeup” Look if they can do it so can we! And don’t try to tell me she doesn’t like BOMB AF!!

Then they come with “Ok so she so looks great but what about natural beauty?” Makeup simply amplifies what you have already. I don’t think she tried to reconstruct her face. #BlackGirlMagic

“As a Black woman filmmaker I feel that’s my job: visibility. And my preference within that job is Black subjectivity. Meaning I’m interested in the lives of Black folk as the subject. Not the predicate, not the tangent.[These stories] deserve to be told. Not as sociology, not as spectacle, not as a singular event that happens every so often, but regularly and purposefully as truth and as art on an ongoing basis, as do the stories of all the women you love.” - Ava DuVernay | Making Black History 10/28

One thing I’m hating seeing on social media is people patting black women on the back for being mules regarding this election. I hate it with the deepest hate I can conjure up. I hate that black women think that’s some badge of honor.

Because these people have been silent when black women have continuously been mistreated in this country, in our community and globally. I just sat and watched over the years black women be subjected to brutal mistreatment and nobody not give a damn.

Lets not act like black women aren’t constantly told to shut up or be completely ignore when we want to fight for our own rights by the same people telling us how great we are for carrying the burden of other people’s liberation.

Fuck outta here with that. Stop only caring about black women if we fight for other people, I hate that shit. I’ll join this shit once I see people do the same for black women. Until then I will not make myself apart of this shit, I’ll hate Trump’s stupid ass from a distance.
