this is the world of hashtag

ok but at what point did Qui-Gon realize he’d said “The Queen doesn’t need to know” to the actual Queen.

at what point in the battle planning did Padme very deadpan say to him, “the council doesn’t need to know?” or something like that

at what point did Qui-Gon realize that under no circumstances should Obi-Wan and Padme be allowed to become friends because they will sass him to death

at what point did the young Queen realize she and Qui-Gon were saltmates

Hey everyone, so if you don’t know what’s going on: yesterday, footage from Marvel’s Black Panther was released showing the romantic f/f relationship between Okoye/Ayo, characters from the comics the movie will be using as inspiration for the story. 

(x)

Of course, many fans were overjoyed to hear this, as we have been waiting for lgbt+ representation in MCU for a long time. However, Marvel has since retracted this, and released a statement saying that the relationship between these two women will not be depicted romantically:


This is more than disappointing to many, many people. We were teased with the possibility of representation, only to have it taken away from us. It’s long past the time for Marvel to step up and start telling more diverse stories, and we are tired of waiting. 

What can you do to help? Please, please, spare a moment to reach out to Marvel, their producers, representatives, etc etc, on twitter, using the hashtag #LetAyoHaveAGirlfriend. Social media is such an amazing tool and we can use it to make our voices be heard, and maybe make a change. I think it’s really important for us to try. 

Please take a moment to signal boost this post as well… the more awareness spread the better! It would mean the world to myself and so many Marvel fans if we were to have a canon, lgbt female character in the MCU.

Calling All Witchy Writers.

It’s getting harder and harder to connect with witches who are also writers. It is so, so important for us all to band together and form a helpful community where we can all celebrate each others’ works and give advice.

Doesn’t matter if you’ve been published on Witches & Pagans, posted fanfiction online, or have written in a journal you only keep to yourself. If you’re a witch who writes, I want to hear from you. 

Use #witchywriters to connect to each other on Tumblr and Instagram.

This hashtag is hardly ever used, so we might as well take advantage of that. And of course, reblog this to boost the word.

I want to connect! Make more friends! Read more work! Change the world one witchy writer at a time!!

Celebrity campaign for Somalia has raised almost $2 million to relieve famine

  • A viral aid campaign led by actor Ben Stiller, Colin Kaepernick and others has raised nearly $2 million for famine-stricken Somalia in just five days.
  • The movement began after French social media celebrity Jérôme Jarre, concerned about a lack of media coverage surrounding the famine Somalia is currently experiencing, put out a call to action to his followers.
  • After figuring out that there is only one airline currently making commercial flights to Somalia — Turkish Airlines — Jarre set a seemingly impossible goal: What if, using the hashtag #TurkishAirlinesHelpSomalia, his fans could get the company to respond?
  • Soon Stiller and other social media influencers joined in, posting short videos on their respective platforms appealing to the airline to let the initiative use one of their cargo planes to deliver supplies.
  • To their surprise, the airline didn’t just accept — it offered to make multiple trips. Read more (3/21/17 11:40 AM)

I just can’t stop thinking about Beauty Guru Cosette because it’s the absolute purest thing:

  • Cosette reclaims pastel pink as a fierce colour and makes it her brand, showing the world that softness isn’t a weakness but an act of bravery when the rest of the world tries to bring you down
  • She has this whole segment in which she reads hate comments and literally kills them with kindness, saying she’s sorry about their internalised anger and that she wishes them well, because a happy person wouldn’t leave comments like these
  • She promotes mental health and well-being, all with a cheerful and positive attitude, helping many people in the process
  • During the whole “Men can’t wear makeup” controversy, Cosette invited Courfeyrac and Montparnasse to do a video with her, and launched a #makeupisgenderneutral hashtag on twitter, which trended HARD.
  • Speaking of collabs, she often works with Musichetta and Bahorel on little fashion reviews and body positivity videos
  • Jehan records the little ukulele music that plays in the videos
  • She did a “My dad does my makeup” challenge, thinking it’d be hilarious since Valjean has seemingly no clue how makeup works. But Valjean did absolutely brilliantly? Cosette was totally blown away, but Valjean just shrugged it off: “Of course I know how to do it; I watch your videos. I keep in touch with what my daughter does and love, and I couldn’t be prouder.”
  • Cosette teared up on camera, ruining Valjean’s hard work, and hugged her dad so hard she couldn’t breathe. It remains, to this day, the most viewed video on her channel

So in 2015 something life changing happened;

I was on twitter one day and I saw some people joking about Africa (in terms of the stereotypes inflicted on us) and I was really tired, and frustrated.

So I gathered some friends and we started a hashtag called #TheAfricaTheMediaNeverShowsYou to combat stereotypes by posting pictures of our cities in our respective countries and that of others as well, and also highlighting the culture as well as other things not shown (enough) by the news/media.

I went around Accra (Ghana) and took several pictures of different places and posted them under the hashtag along with my team of friends, and other Africans/tourists who joined and the joy people got from using it was so amazing and heart warming to see.

Then it took off to limits we never expected, we’ve done interviews for some of the outlets in the screenshots, as well as many other online news/websites including BBC and an interview for Brussels Airlines which was featured in their brochure.

To top things all off, by God’s amazing will and works, the UNWTO (United Nations World Tourism Organization) was having their ‘Brand Africa’ Conference here in Ghana hosted by CNN And sponsored by Ethiopian Airlines.

I was asked to be a speaker on their panel and was also blessed to meet and talk to the Secretary General of the UNWTO Taleb Rifai (In the last picture)

Since then I’ve wanted to be a photographer, artist and a journalist surrounding most of my work on promoting African Tourism or all things African.

Major point of this post is that, I want to continue to urge the Africans and African Americans to try as much as possible to come visit and see the stunning and amazing beauty for yourselves! Your continent of origin is a GREAT one. The hashtag is used mostly on twitter and on Instagram, but I implore you to check the pictures posted under the hashtag on Instagram.

Again, our continent of origin is a great one and so are we!

People on Twitter are going in on Matt Damon with the #ThankYouMattDamon hashtag for his self conception as a white savior

“We have to stop perpetuating the racist myth that only a white man can save the world. It’s not an actual fact,” Constance Wu wrote in a tweet criticizing the film back in July. “It’s not about blaming individuals. Rather, it’s about pointing out the repeatedly implied racist notion that white people are superior to POC and that POC need salvation from our own color via white strength. When you consistently make movies like this, you ARE saying that. YOU ARE.”

BOOKS READ IN 2017: THE HATE U GIVE by Angie Thomas

I’ve seen it happen over and over again: a black person gets killed just for being black, and all hell breaks loose. I’ve tweeted RIP hashtags, reblogged pictures on Tumblr, and signed every petition out there. I always said that if I saw it happen to somebody, I would have the loudest voice, making sure the world knew what went down.
Now I am that person, and I’m too afraid to speak.

A/N: After listening to Beach Weather’s ‘Swoon’ and ‘Sex, Drugs, Etc.’ on an endless loop, I finally managed to write this update. Also, sending my love to @lovellylittlelonely for giving me feedback on this :)

Residing in the darkness, you stood quietly as everyone around you swayed to the music booming through the speakers, the melodies pulsing in your ears. Watching the performance, you spotted Viz behind the drums while he played the set with his bandmates. You figured your friends were near the front to get a better view with Wanda’s insistence. You knew she was determined to see her man up close.

Hello, all my kpoppers out there!

I don’t know if anyone besides us Bestfriends will see this, but if you do it would mean so much if you could help. 

As you may or may not know, Boyfriend is still a band! And their fans love them so so much, I have been a Bestfriend for six years and it’s been the most loving and rewarding experience on this earth, and I don’t want me or any of us to have to let that go. We have been forgotten a lot over the years, but we never lost our ability for compassion and kindness and the propensity to welcome anyone with open arms. We are truly a fandom who has done everything to emulate those we look up to and to live up to our name.

Recently some news has come out that a new band will be debuting on the say day Boyfriend debuted, and they happen to be going by the same name. I tried very hard to help solve problem internally, but we do not have the numbers that many fandoms do. We do not have a problem with these young children who are debuting, they are young and innocent, so we have no ill feelings towards them. But we are so heartbroken that our Boyfriend has been neglected for literally half the time they’ve been a band. We are tired of not seeing them, we are tired Starship didn’t root for them when they weren’t as popular when they wanted, we are tired because they didn’t fight for their own NAME. This is especially devastating because at this point it feels like their name is all they have left and now that’s been taken away from them. It’s cruel, it’s immoral and dehumanizing. One of our very own band members just is clearly so immensely distraught that there is nothing he can do, and I am distraught too that there’s nothing I can do. But there is something perhaps WE can do. These  boys, AND MAybe I’m biased….they are the six most wonderful, kind, talented, loving people who only from day one wished to spread joy. We can’t just lose them like we are, it’s not fair. I don’t want to go down without a fight but I need everyone I can to help me. It would so much to me, it would mean the world and I would be eternally grateful. Sending this out and hoping it gets read really is the last resort.

Please if you have a twitter, tweet and encourage others to tweet at Starship https://twitter.com/STARSHIPent with the hashtag #SAVEBOYFRIEND even if it’s one tweet if we can get a lot of people to do it maybe it will add up to something and if you can spare the time please sign this petition! 

Thank you so much in advance, and if anyone has any questions please don’t hesitate to ask, I am always available

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPgoodnight

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post every week announcing the latest project.

For some, the world goes to sleep at night. For others, it comes alive. This weekend, the goal is to capture both sides of that spectrum: the bright energy and the quiet rest. Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Whether it’s calming down or speeding up, notice how the energy shifts. Document your family settling in for dinner or take a Boomerang of your friends hitting the town.
  • Focus on light. Whether it’s the blue hue of dusk spreading over your neighborhood or a city skyline illuminated against the night sky, notice how light changes and evolves from bright to dim.
  • Look beyond your immediate circle — how do other people react to the shift from day to night? Take a portrait of a server heading to work or a video of downtown streets emptying as office workers head home.

PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPgoodnight hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.
