*sighs* really? it’s just so much easier for yall to declare lorca a villain rather than deal with a morally ambiguous character with severe ptsd? is it really that much easier to be on a black-white spectrum? i mean michael is pretty much a morally grey character as well. she’s not a perfect cinnamon roll, she has her (pretty big) flaws and that’s what makes her character interesting and her storyline captivating. for fucks sake just learn to consume fiction that’s not simply good perfect uwu babies and bad horrible villains, oh my godddd
The point is you came up on a post discussing how in light of how poorly these white women treated black people, the discomfort of their beauty rituals is nothing, and in hindsight, as a member of the oppressed, it's not sympathetic. You inappropriately defended the white women. And instead of listening to the oppressed, u keep defending white women. Yes, we're all humans, but in a world that doesn't treat us that way, it's naive and offensive for u to oversimplify it like that.
im saying that reducing those experiences to “discomfort” is fucked up, because of aforementioned massive health problems caused by those rituals. that matters. its significant
i love your black and white photos. I like the general visual of it and then I look deeper and its a world I dont know so im interested and i look deeper. this is rare. so many things are things ive seen and yes its a beautiful photo but im not mystified. i know what it is. you are photographing a world that I dont know. i went to art school 👻 and i remember the day i saw Millet paintings. Millet painted field workers when no one had painted field workers before. This is what you are doing ❤️
Aww, thank you. I think maybe I like black and white more sometimes because it shows detail better. Also, I’m in places, doing things, that are completely ordinary to me, but normally unseen or unnoticed by most. Not to be pretentious (intentionally) but I think there’s beauty, or at least bits of beauty, hidden in everything.
