it makes them look pathetic

fake geek boys are getting upset over there being women of color in the new Star Trek trailer like there haven’t been loads even in the original series

I bet they can’t name even one other woman (let alone a woman of color) in any of the shows other than uhura. clearly they only say they like the show because it makes them look cool, not because they’ve actually seen it.


Harsh Reminders

ARIES: no one wants to be friends with a bully; putting others down to make yourself look bigger will leave you alone at the top. Don’t expect anyone to forgive you for the damage you do. They’re not obligated to.

TAURUS: the earth tries to take care of you, but humanity doesn’t bother. Don’t expect to be able to rely on the kindness of strangers forever; you’re going to have to fight for yourself sooner or later.

GEMINI: actions only speak louder than words when you take action. Don’t expect them not to listen to you when everything you give them is strictly verbal; they have nothing else to know you by. Make it count.

CANCER: you tell them to treat you like an adult, but then you say you want to be taken care of like a child. Don’t expect anyone else to pick for you; decide for yourself whether you are strong or small.

LEO: begging or forcing others to submit to or adore you makes you look pathetic, not powerful. Don’t expect them to bend to your will when your will is constantly bending over backwards in search of a mere throne.

VIRGO: in your pursuit of perfection, you are throwing everything else away. Don’t expect anybody to follow you down that straight & narrow path, and don’t expect not to feel empty when you reach the end with nothing but your ideals.

LIBRA: when you invent a new face for yourself everyday, your real one disappears. Don’t expect the masks to make you feel like you belong, because if anything, they just create more people for you not to fit in with.

SCORPIO: if you hide in the shadows forever, you’ll always be in the dark. Don’t expect anyone else to dive down there with you, and don’t tell me you’re never going to want them to. You will.

SAGITTARIUS: being honest does not always mean you’re telling the truth. Don’t expect other people to swallow your bluntness without questioning where those words came from, and don’t expect them not to find out.

CAPRICORN: if you never let any warmth in, you will always feel cold. Don’t expect their love to be as persistent as your walls are impenetrable; don’t expect anyone to continue to give it to you when you won’t even look at it.

AQUARIUS: your morals aren’t almighty, and your experience isn’t universal. Don’t expect everyone to follow in your footsteps when they don’t know where you’ve been, and you’re not even sure where you’re going.

PISCES: if you ask someone to share their pain with you, they will. Don’t expect them to apologize for bruising your sensitive heart when you’re the one who opened it up and you’re the one who said you were strong enough.

There are a lot of ways to interpret this. I wrote it with mainly the Ascendant & 12th house cusp sign in mind, but you may want to check the ruling sign(s) of planets in the 1st or 12th house, your sun, moon, Mars, Saturn, and/or Lilith signs as well. It depends on which ones have the most influence in your particular natal chart.

Too Black?: Why dark-skinned women are a threat to those who try to erase her...

“The Goddess Kali is represented as black in color. Black in the ancient Hindu language of Sanskrit is kaala. The feminine form is kali. So she is Kali, the black one. Black is a symbol of The Infinite and the seed stage of all colors. The Goddess Kali remains in a state of inconceivable darkness that transcends words and mind. Within her blackness is the dazzling brilliance of illumination. Kali’s blackness symbolizes her all-embracing, comprehensive nature, because black is the color in which all the colors merge; black absorbs and dissolves them.” 

No one can fuck with the divinity of a dark-skinned woman. NO ONE. When a dark-skinned woman is at her best, her power radiates through her pores, blinding anyone who dares to box her in. So why are dark-skinned women the most disrespected women on the earth? Why does her very existence ruffle so many feathers? 

       There have been many attempts to bastardize, infiltrate, and erase the power that dark-skinned women possess. As the first woman to walk the planet earth, she is the creator of all life forms. “Her black skin represents the womb of the quantum unmanifest from which all of creations arises and into which all of creation will eventually dissolve.” Dark-skinned women represent the first matriarch. Her femininity and her power transcend throughout society. Cultures around the world praise her as the first mother that possesses the power to breathe life and destroy life (ie. The Black Madonna and Kali Ma).  

       So here’s my theory as to why dark-skinned women are the most disrespected. Due to colonization and slavery, colourism emerged and the dark-skinned woman’s agency was torn to shreds leaving her as a representative of all things awful, bitter, and distasteful. Dark-skinned went from being revered to being a symbol of low status…a symbol of trauma and dysfunction. That is the reason why we have stereotypes that surround dark-skinned women as being angry, loud, boisterous, dirty, poor, and just all around evil, whereas lighter skin (due to it’s proximity to whiteness) is deemed as worthy, high class, pleasant, bougie, best of the best and all around more satisfying. We see this throughout all sorts of media such as music, art, text, movies (ie. jiggaboos vs. wannabes in School Daze). Colourism did a number on society, especially the black community. Colourism manifested in the black man so severe that the darkest black man believes that his dark-skinned female counterpart is grotesque while his skin is to be revered amongst women of all nations. Black men have adopted this mental notion that to love a dark skinned woman is to accept the fate of the damned. Eldridge Cleaver, a prominent leader in The Black Panther Party, wrote in his book Soul On Ice “ Every time I embrace a black woman I’m embracing slavery, and when I put my arms around a white woman, well, I’m hugging freedom.” The dark-skinned woman’s existence forces black men to come to terms with the fact that he wasn’t able to protect his own likeness. Diallo Kenyatta writes “If a man cannot protect someone that he is genetically and culturally obligated to protect it hurts him. So he has one of two choices: he must fight to gain the power to protect or pretend that he doesn’t have the obligation, he must pretend that women are unworthy of the protection, that women are instead worthy of his scorn and objection.” 

The color black governs power and control of the self and others. It creates fear and intimidation. Darkness forces us to face our fears and submit to what is ahead. It forces us to take responsibility for what was and what is to come. In the darkness, our conscience takes us over and we are forced to come to grips with our inadequacies. So what happens when you are too black? What happens when your skin tone reminds your male counterpart that he is, in fact, inadequate and lack the basic foundation to protect you… That’s where degradation and prejudice (which is masked as “preference”) comes in. In a world where men have to fight for a seat at the winner’s table, black men find it easier to assimilate than to fight for the reverence of his image. That is the reason why dark-skinned women are so disrespected. Disrespecting and dehumanizing dark-skinned womanhood is the black man’s way of aligning himself with white supremacy so that he MAY have a seat at the table. Contorting his prejudice into a “preference” is his way of being able to say “hey, I’m a black man, but I do not relate to those dark women. I got a light, bright, damn near white woman on my hip. See, I’m just as powerful as you.” Constantly creating caricatures that deem us unlovable and ugly is their way of sharing a big hearty laugh and a high five with white elitists in hopes of becoming an elitist themselves. What they don’t know is that it makes them look pathetic. They will NEVER have a seat at the table by denouncing their connection to dark-skinned women. They will never be revered as the KINGS they so desperately want to be. They will never be true patriarchs worthy of ruling any society. Why? The moment you disrespect the first mother, you put the gun to your own head. See the thing about self-haters is that they can’t just hate themselves and go. Their self-hate is a terrible concoction of inadequacy and narcissism. Thus, we have a group of men who work overtime to ensure that dark-skinned women have the same low self-esteem that they do. Dark-skinned women are not being scapegoated because they are ugly, insufferable or unworthy. They are being scapegoated because they represent blackness in its entirety. Many black men see this as a nuisance. They see your dark skin as a setback. To them, it’s easier to conform to white supremacy than it is to fight white supremacy, so they literally vilify dark-skinned women in order to be seen as a separate entity worthy of redemption in a white patriarchal society. DARK-SKINNED WOMEN. YOU ARE ROYALTY. YOUR IMAGE IS ALL OVER THE WORLD AS THE CREATOR OF LIFE. THROUGH YOU, ALL NATIONS WERE BORN. The wonderful thing about being too black is that you are intimidating in a way where your power blinds the opposition. Next time a black man or whoever disrespects dark-skinned women, just remember that your divinity reminds people that they are lack-luster and that their excuses are useless. They have to disrespect you in order to feel better about their own inabilities to navigate through the world. They hate the fact that through adversities, the dark-skinned woman is still here…still pushing through…still snatching edges…and still raising the standards. 

Quick disclaimer: Before you all start to bitch…No, this is not a jab at light-skinned women. No, this is not a jab at black men who fell in love with a light-skinned woman. No this is not a jab at all dark-skinned men. This is for the black men (specifically dark-skinned men) who’s self-hatred runs so deep that they condemn their own female counterparts. This is for the black men that do not know the difference between preference and prejudice. This is for the black dark-skinned men that have disdain for the same women he shares a complexion with. Save the “not all” and the “this is divisive” bullshit.

Stay With Me

Well, it seems i’ve still not satisfied my need for horrible angst and dysfunctional boys. Trigger warning for suicide and death, this will become infinitely sadder if you’re listening to Ed Sheeran’s cover of “Stay With Me”

It was some time around four in the morning when Kavinsky’s phone vibrated on the bedside table next to him. One long arm pried itself from the sheets and two black eyes winced as the white light of the screen cut through the night around him. The light must of awoken Proko, who stirred from behind him and shifted, craning his bruised neck to peer over Kavinsky’s scratched shoulders, anxiously watching to see who this mysterious text was from. Kavinsky said nothing, but there was a ripple of emotion through his body that could only ever be evoked from one person - Proko knew, he had tried - Lynch.

The thing that gets me about the donkey pic is Taylor posted a pic on her IG of the donkey further away from the door but w/out Margo. Margo being afraid of the donkey is so obviously fake to the point of almost being funny. She can stage all the 'quirky photos she wants, but trying to sell them as spontaneous makes her look pathetic. If I were as unoriginal in my IG posts as she is I'd have fun with it, like "obligatory x pic". Instead, she tries to make it look like an original idea.

Oh god, your last comments reminded me that it’s been pointed out multiple times how unoriginal Margarita is with her IG posts/captions. @themargaritalevievablog has a couple of posts about it here and here. (There are more examples, but I don’t have time to find them right now.) If Margo ever tries to go into screenwriting or push any kind of “original” work for profit, someone needs to go over it with an eagle eye for “familiar” content.

Hi, sorry to bother you, but how do you draw a pout?

Alight anon, I’m gonna be straight up, I am probably NOT the person you want to be going to for art advise. Mostly because I am constantly changing my own art style and how I draw things. But I’ll do my best to give you some simple pointers, so here we go!!!

Let’s start off by drawing one of my OC testers, Lex. He’s always wanting to help and usually helps me try out new poses and techniques. 

First draw a base, any pose is fine.

Now the eye’s. They can be looking any direction, but try to go for making them squished and squinted. Make a pout on your face right now, notice how your eyes automatically narrow. (If you ever need basic face gestures, I recommend keeping a mirror around, for a beginning artist, it really helps, and no one is a better model for what you want to draw than yourself. =) )

Now for the actual pout. Pouts tend to be pointed upward and outward, making them look bigger and basically more pathetic looking. (Lex, you pathetic trash bag you)

Lastly!!! EYEBROWS!!! I will scream this till the day I die, but the eyebrows are one of the most expressive body parts a human has, so absolutely abuse them!!! There are multiple types of pouts, I showed two of the major ones. Sad pout and angry pout, but those can be broken down into multiple categories (as feelings often are) so whatever pout you are trying to get across really depends on what your eyebrows represent.

And there you go!!! Some basics on how to/I draw a pout. (Thanks Lex, you can go back to your room now.) Hope that helps anon! =)

Look I just…I really have to say this:

The Steve/Sharon thing is creepy, unsettling and to me, haunting.I hate that we might be seeing it play out in the cinematic universe.

Sorry but I’ve got a long confession/rant ahead. Let me start off by saying that I am NOT a Stony fan in the least. I hate that pairing almost as much as I hate Steve/Sharon. To me Stony is the perfect example of a fan pairing,that no matter how strong or well developed a grudge is placed between two characters, people will just write it off as ‘sexual tension’. I feel a major reason why so many people ship it isn’t because of their actual dynamic as characters but rather because it fuels a homoerotic hot-guy-on-guy fetish.  Yet for all of that, I hate the Steve/Sharon thing just a little bit more.

Why, you ask?Because their relationship is based on wish fulfillment and the desire for replication.

Sharon is supposed to be the blonde image of her aunt Peggy. Sharon is a high ranking S.H.I.E.L.D agent who is skilled with firearms. Peggy was also a S.H.I.E.L.D agent who pretty much only used firearms. Steve and Peggy were attracted to each other and sometimes worked together when she served in the French Resistance during World War 2. They never entered into a committed relationship but there were definitely strong feelings between the two, and Steve was enamored by her at the time that he was frozen in the arctic. Steve still missed Peggy even after he had been unfrozen for some time, but more than that, he missed the time period and the world that he knew. At this point who walks into his life but Sharon Carter, the almost complete look-a-like of Peggy, the woman from Steve’s past, who has a similar job to the one Peggy had at the time Steve last saw her.

It’s doucy enough when you think that Steve views Sharon as just Peggy 2.0 but it’s actually more complicated than that.Those who’ve read the House of M comics know that in the alternate reality where Steve is never frozen, he and Peggy get married and then divorce not that long after. Peggy was not some big epic love of Steve’s life that he was trying to replicate with Sharon. He basically used Sharon to replace Peggy, a flame from his old life and as such was trying to hold onto that old life. His wish was that he’d never been frozen, so he could stay in that time period he knew and by replacing the woman he’d loved from that same era, with her look-a-like relative in the present, he was ultimately saying that he couldn’t let go. That makes Steve look so pathetic.

And let’s look at this from Sharon’s perspective; She grew up hearing her aunt (or half-sister in the early comics) telling her stories about how she, Peggy would shoot down Nazis, saving people and falling for, as well as aiding and sometimes being rescued by, the heroic Captain America. It’s those stories that inspired Sharon to join S.H.I.E.L.D., to become like Peggy, shooting the bad guys, helping to save the day, and eventually romancing with Captain America herself. And guess what? Sharon becomes a better fighter than Peggy was and she is able to enter into a romantic relationship with Cap successfully, unlike Peggy. Does that make her the new and improved Peggy? Steve might as well start calling her Peggy because that seems to be what they both want. That makes Sharon look so pathetic.       

It makes both of them look pathetic.

So now I’m going to let you guys in on the worst part of all. The reason why I feel so strongly about/against this is because I’ve been in a similar situation. I dated a guy who used to date my cousin, who has a lot of the same interests and job goals as me. The truth came out eventually and it was ugly; he was dating me because my cousin was no longer available, and because I was the next best thing. I don’t mean to completely demonize the guy because he was sorry for it and he was the one who broke it off but it was still very painful.

I’m really looking forward to seeing The Winter Soldier, the trailer looked great and I have complete faith in the cast but I’m really uneasy about the scenes involving Steve and Sharon.Emily Van Camp has said that she’s a potential love interest for the sequel(s) and I really hope that potential never comes to pass. I’m grateful to the casting directors for not just bringing Haley Atwell back,putting her in a blonde wig and asking her to use an American accent, like some people suggested. I’m glad that Van Camp has only a passing resemblance to Atwell but still the idea is there. Even if you take away the overwhelming physical resemblance that Sharon and Peggy have in the comics, there’s still both of them working in S.H.I.E.L.D., being handy with a gun, being relatives and then making Sharon Steve’s new girl.IT’S JUST TOO CONTRIVED. AUDIENCES AREN’T STUPID ENOUGH TO NOT SEE THAT.

I understand the way the superhero movie genre works. I get that,unless he has a heroic sacrifice, the hero always gets the girl in the end. I’m not shooting that down in some straw feminist way. I’m fine (if not happy) with it as long as it’s done tastefully and the girl isn’t constantly forced into really dangerous situations just so the superhero can assist her. I’m also not bashing Sharon as a solo character, because she has had some great development and storylines over the years.

What I’m saying is I really hope they don’t put her into that romantic role. If they need someone to be Steve’s lady love, then let it be Beth, the waitress in the Avengers. She was likable in her small part, and if they wanted to, they could make her into a modern day version of Betsy Ross, another love interest of Steve’s from the WWII period (who unlike Peggy, was actually a big part of those early comics and not retconned in). If not Beth then bring in Diamondback, Bernie Rosenthal,Connie Ferrari or even use Maria Hill. But no to Sharon being anything besides a friend and colleague of Steve’s. Please no to putting them in such a contrived relationship that makes them both look like tools. I know how painful that kind of relationship is, and I’d rather not associate that pain with my favorite Marvel superhero.

Sorry for any typos. I’m tired and upset.

To anyone that think that Zahra should be hired back because of a bullshit apology that took a week for her (or someone else) to write; FUCK YOU! This woman is still a hateful human being. You wanna forgive her for all the nasty shit she wrote on her Twitter before WWE and call people out for “Digging these photos up from her past”? Well, FUCK YOU TOO! You want this woman to represent a PG company and for your kids, or younger siblings, or Nieces and Nephews to look up to this woman? What is wrong with you? First off: The bitch never wrestled one match in NXT. So please enlighten me on what you’re  a “Fan” of hers for? You never saw her step into a ring so what are you a fan of and why do you want something back you never even had in the first place? Other than her fucking Seth Rollins, what else do you know about this women? The only thing you have to be a fan of his that she is fucking Seth. That is the only thing she’s known for. Stop validating a womens career by who she’s fucking! You make yourself look almost as pathetic as them. Zahara got what she deserved. She didn’t apologize for saying all that shit about Princess Tiana she only apologized for what really hit the dirtsheets and made its ways back to the WWE. Her replies on those photos don’t show a woman that isn’t racist, but a woman that feels she can post what she wants on HER IG page and the hell with you if you’re offended by it. basically, Fuck her and fuck you too if you agree with her or feel sorry for her in any way!

CONFESSION :: I’m disturbed by the “this once perfect person did a tiny problematic thing! Let’s run them off Tumblr!” mentality. Yeah, people make mistakes. It’s one thing to point out someone is a pedophile, faking illness for money or say an organization is actively hurting people, but causing public drama and dropping dox on somebody because you’re personally offended by their opinion is really, really sad. Ruining somebody’s life and humiliating them doesn’t make you superior, it makes you look pathetic.

Thanks for outing yourself as a supporter of larceny.  Seriously, do these people think comments like this are making them look “cool” or something, and not hilariously pathetic?  Do they believe I’m somehow increasing the popularity of these blogs when a large chunk of them have already deleted, and the rest will probably be taken down?  Like, no one is reblogging any of these messages from those people except people mocking the shit out of them.  Do you think you guys are “popular” or something?  Because you coulda fooled me, sparky, since absolutely no one is defending you dumbasses.  Hell, you’re not even defending each other.
