You’re right about one thing: i couldn’t care less about her, her career, her life & her involvment with Weinstein..
However, I have every right to express an opinion, and to try to connect a few dots about the Weinstein scandal & other things….
But out of respect, YOU contacted me, and sent me 6 or 7 Anons in less than 4 hours, to try to justify her link to Weinstein…And then you sent me this “How about you stick to Taylor and Karlie and leave other people alone
“ … really ??
So why don’t YOU leave me alone, unfollow me, i don’t care if you’re the chief of her fanbase, or part of her publicist team…
Tumblr is a free space, if i believe that she slept with Weinstein, took advantage of his power to advance her career, and somehow it helped her win an oscar.. then i have every right to write it….If you disagree and don’t like it: then just unfollow me or block me…That’s all..
Like she would have been the first/only one to have done this anyway ?
a lot of you all were never taught to think critically about your own actions, nor how to separate your behaviors from your core personality, and end up trying to play Johnnie Cochran and justify the very shitty things that you do, which is just sad and telling. don’t be afraid to hurt your own fucking feelings if it’ll make you better in the long run.
I am seeing a lot of posts saying how calling out what happened at SDCC as homophobic is ‘ridiculous’. I’d like to address first the scope of what homophobia is, then move onto how the incident was driven by homophobia.
When you hear the term homophobia, it conjures up images of assault or of slurs being thrown out in the open. This is often not the case. Incidences of homophobia can range from the above to smaller instances that make you question whether of not you’re being ‘hysterical’ or ‘dramatic’ for thinking you’re being discriminated against or not. Merriam-Webster defines homophobia as: irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals.
On Lord of the Flies, and why not all stories are gender-free...
So today, my
Twitter timeline was all about the planned movie of LORD OF THE FLIES, written
by two men, and remade with an all-female cast. I think it’s the worst movie idea
since two white men decided to rewrite ROOTS, and here are a few of the reasons why.
LORD OF THE FLIES was originally written as a response to Ballantyne’s THE
CORAL ISLAND; the quite revoltingly racist tale of “civilized” white boys stranded
on a Polynesian island. It’s a piece of colonial propaganda: in it the boys are
decent, honest, Christian lads: the natives are ignorant, savage cannibals.
Golding’s book took that myth of white superiority and Empire and made of it a
fable about toxic masculinity, colonialism and the fact that “civilization” is
just a veneer.
Now the problem
is not the fact of just retelling a story with an all-female cast. We’ve seen
that before with GHOSTBUSTERS, and welcomed it as a step towards greater
inclusivity. Some stories are gendered for no reason: stories about gender, however, are not. And in this case, the basic problem is the fact that a couple of men are aiming to retell a fable about a patriarchal society while actually cutting out the role of the patriarchy - effectively ignoring the very society that made the story possible.
The boys (the
white, British, privileged boys) in Golding’s novel have been raised with a
fixed view of what it means to be a (civilized, white) man. Their descent into
savagery forces them to question their view of themselves, their role in society, their colonial Empire and their assumed superiority over others. To
remake that story with women (or indeed with POC) seems not only absurd, but looks
like an attempt to modify and soften the role of white men in colonialism. And
of course the fact that it’s actually written by men adds further insult to
injury. White men have already had their say on virtually every subject
imaginable for far too long: we need to hear women’s voices now - especially those
of women of colour.
mean silencing men, or saying their voices shouldn’t be heard. But basically, the
principle of an all-female LORD OF THE FLIES is a lot like the All Lives Matter
movement. Yes, all lives matter. But some lives are more at risk than others. And
saying that All People Are Capable of Brutality overlooks the fact that some
groups are historically responsible for more brutality than others. It suggests
that everyone is equal within our society. And ironically, it does so (again, again) from a
position of historic privilege and entitlement: that of the straight white
A much more
interesting take on the nature of society and violence is Naomi Alderman’s THE
POWER, which suggests that if society were different and gender roles reversed,
women might be as brutal as men. However, it’s fundamentally different (as well
as being more relevant) because by a woman, about women. It doesn’t make claims
it can’t justify; doesn’t try to whitewash the past, and doesn’t suggest that a
repressive female-led society would be any better.
So let’s not
pretend that this is about putting more women on the big screen. Sure, we’d all
like to see more women in film, but not in any old context. After all, the porn
industry is full of films starring women. What matters is listening to women’s
voices talking about themselves: not listening to men telling us what women are
i’m sure most everyone who follows me and/or is active in the hamilton fandom is aware of what’s been happening to my good friend jay/umbronydraws during the last few weeks or so. with jay’s consent i’m here to explain the situation on his behalf since he wants absolutely no further part in the fandom or in this situation and honestly? I don’t blame him whatsoever.
tl;dr congratulations, you harassed another queer artist of color to the point of considering suicide. both people outside of the fandom AND people within the fandom have been guilty of this. how many more times is this going to keep happening?
caps (provided by jay) and explanations are below. content warnings for slurs & just. shit. many names have been left uncensored. (reblogs are ok & encouraged, we need people to know and understand what happened here so that we can work on making sure it doesn’t happen again.)
zen accuses jumin of being an alcoholic, and points out how he keeps uploading pictures of alcohol on the messenger. cue seven’s comment, which suggests that jumin is posting a lot of pictures. seven is messing around, but just for fun, let’s do the math.
(note: this assumes pricing is the same as our universe. everything calculated on Oct 10, 2017)
seven owns a herrari, which is the mysme universe’s version of a ferrari. since we don’t know the exact details, let’s be very conservative and go with the cheapest ferrari model, which is around ₩227,331,116.59 or $200,000.
since jumin loves wine, let’s look at how much each bottle costs. jumin says the price for a single bottle of wine is ₩200,000 or about $175.84. we can use this as the average price of the premium, expensive wines he’s buying.
ultimately, jumin would be uploading at least 1,137 bottles of expensive wine to match the price of seven’s car. this is assuming seven has the cheapest car on the market, which he probably doesn’t.
seven’s exaggerating to make a point about how many pictures jumin’s uploading, so the math is just for fun. but even if he hasn’t uploaded over a thousand bottles of wine in total, i think seven and zen might have a point about his drinking. jumin, are you okay?
