And if for any reason you find yourself in that bottom two, you better fight that motherfucking fight, because - hey, listen to me. Think about every little dark-skinned brown girl out there that anyone has told they didn’t deserve it, they didn’t belong, that they’re not worth it, and that it was too much for them to want it. You do it for all of them. Not just you. Every single one of them. We are doing this for more than just us. You understand what I’m saying? So do not give up. Because if you give up, you tell them that it’s okay to give up in the situations that they’re dealing with and that ain’t okay. Because this road is way too rough for them to give up.

So I started doing this thing where I count the points for each queen during their season, with the system:

  • win: 5 points
  • top: 4 points
  • safe: 3 points
  • bottom: 2 points
  • bottom 2, but not eliminated: 1 point
  • elimination: 0 points

and then also calculated overall score per episode for each queen, so the current rankings for season 9 are (overall points) (bold means the queen is still in the race)

  1. Shea: 20 points
  2. Valentina: 19 points
  3. Sasha: 18 points
  4. Alexis: 17 points
  5. Trinity, Nina, Peppermint, Eureka (in that order): 16 points each
  6. Aja: 14 points
  7. Farrah: 13 points
  8. Cynthia: 10 points (keep in mind she wasn’t there for episode)
  9. Charlie: 8 points
  10. Kimora: 4 points
  11. Jaymes: 3 points

Now, this is to some extent an unfair ranking system, because, for example, if a queen wins the first challenge but gets eliminated the second episode she’ll have 5 points, but then another queen spends 5 episodes in the bottom and is eliminated on 6th episode, she’ll also have 5 points, so the correct way to rank is to see how many points a queen has earned per episode (of course now there won’t be no change cause we’re only 5 episodes in):

  1. Shea: 4 points per episode
  2. Valentina: 3.8 points per episode
  3. Sasha: 3.6 points per episode
  4. Alexis: 3.4 per episode
  5. Trinity, Nina, Peppermint, Eureka: 3.2 points per episode
  6. Aja: 2.8 points per episode
  7. Farrah: 2.6 points per episode
  8. Cynthia: 2.5 points per episode
  9. Charlie: 2 points per episode
  10. Jaymes: 1.5 points per episode
  11. Kimora: 1.3 points per episode
  • You: there is a gay white character in Beauty and the Beast for about THREE seconds! I'm glad they are representing the LGBT community :')
  • Me, an intellectual: 4/5 of the power rangers are POC and they're all of different nationalities, there is an autistic black character and a Latina lesbian character and a HOT Asian character who are actually leads and not just there for publicity and a false claim of diversity, the autistic character is loved and not once asked to go out of his comfort zone, they're all teenagers who love and protect each other and also save the world while being huge nerds,
Reasons why you should see Power Rangers (NO SPOILERS)

1. VERY FIRST ON SCREEN AUTISTIC SUPERHERO

•  Said autism is not treated as a weakness and really makes said character the stand out of the movie

2.VERY FIRST ON SCREEN LGBTQ+ SUPERHERO

 • It’s not a topic that is dealt with throughout the whole movie. They talk about it for like two minutes 

• No one treats said character any differently after the reveal

3. THE WOMEN ARE NOT ONCE DOUBTED TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE THEMSELVES

• Not a single sexist comment throughout the entire movie. Not. One.

• (At least I don’t remember any. I may be wrong but I’m 99% sure I’m right)

4. EVERYONE IS FLAWED OR HAS A ‘disability’ 

5. ONE OF THE MESSAGES IS THAT DOING AN AWFUL THING DOESN’T MAKE YOU AN AWFUL PERSON

• I can tell you a lot of people need someone to tell them that

6. IT TACKLES A SHIT TON OF ISSUES AND I LOVE THE MOVIE FOR THAT

7. ALPHA FIVE ISN’T HELPLESS AT ALL

8. ZORDON ISN’T PERFECT AND KINDA SELFISH

9. THIS MOVIE WILL FUCK YOU UP WITHOUT A DOUBT

• I cried like three times

10. THE SOUNDTRACK IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

• Includes The Score, twenty one pilots, Fitz and The Tantrums, and Tove Lo

11. IT’S STILL POWER RANGERS JUST LESS CHEESY

12. IT’S PRETTY FUCKING FUNNY AT SOME PARTS

13. THEY DON’T GET ALONG AUTOMATICALLY 

• It takes a lot of the movie for them to be able to be open with one another

14. THERE IS CAMEO FROM THE ORIGINAL PINK AND GREEN RANGERS

(KK THAT’s ALL I CAN THINK OF RIGHT NOW SO PLS GO SEE IT)
