we need to talk about william!!!

Can we just talk about how calling Jessica Williams "baby" during her last condescending statement was the literal equivalent to using "sweetie (:" on an internet platform.

I’m so disgusted. I’m also disgusted because I’m not surprised. Non black Women of color often tend to feel the need to speak over black women and verbally assign us with what they think we should do in most situations and how we should feel emotionally.

When it comes to invalidating experiences it is no better than a white Woman invalidating a Black Woman of her intersectional experiences.

I truly feel like throwing up. Not an exaggeration, I’m really sad. I have always looked up to Salma Hayek and for this to happen certainly took me aback.

Rachel’s Rambles - 5x12 Bratva

I really, really loved tonight’s episode. It made me truly excited for the rest of the season. There were so many great character moments. And it also left me with a bunch of feelings I need to ramble about so….venture behind the cut if you dare. ;)

y’all we need a university aged!melbourne vicbourne au tho

like 1910s/1920s brideshead revisited feelin’ and he’s hanging around with the romantics and causing trouble and ignoring the whispers about his legitimacy in favour of gallivanting around with his friends

his father’s favourite son has already graduated and accepted his place in society, while letters are sent home about william’s blasphemy and insolence and the bad influence shelley and byron have on his studies (because university isn’t just about an academic education)

and then he gets firsts in all his essays and his lecturers are suddenly more lenient, though his father still suggests he find some better, more useful friends

victoria is the dean’s daughter who’s secretly using the books in the library to educate herself – percy catches him staring one day, and a few days later he’s dragged out of bed into a park where she just so happens to be sitting waiting for him

(george tells him a few months later that they forged a note from him with only a time, place, and a sonnet)

(he tries to write her poetry to keep up the rouse but it’s more embarrassing than just admitting to his friends’ intervention; she raises an eyebrow and asks to hear the poem as compensation for his tricks)

(he rhymes victoria with euphoria and she teases him until he blushes)

sneaking out into the quad at night to see each other, their first kiss bathed in moonlight, a little awkward at first but perfectly right after that. sitting together under oak trees as they read – her father catches sight of them through a window, and suddenly his tutorials become a lot more nerve-wracking for william, finding himself being asked to answer questions far more often than before

lazy summer days of her reading him shakespeare and him quoting de toqueville and descartes and explaining how the government works, because he can’t write poetry and stories like his friends but he can quote pages upon pages of their essays and arguments and talk his way around any tory policy

he brings her flowers and teaches her the meanings, but every time she threads one into his hair or behind his ear, he forgets, and his friends laugh for hours at the sight. the next time he tries to stop her, but she stops him and draws him - how she sees him - and he walks away proudly with the picture in his hand and the flower in his hair

william lamb being as a young man full of idealism, believing that he can change the world, because england may not be a revolutionary people but dammit things can change

the second son, not expecting a title or an estate, having to make his own way in life and excited about it – not the pragmatic old man who experienced so much loss and disappointment in his life, but a young man with hope and freedom and a future

18-year-old victoria without the burden of a crown but with the expectation placed on women of her age and status. suitors paraded in front of her and constant protests of, “no, papa, you know i love william”.

18-year-old victoria wearing suffragette pins under her coat, reading their literature by candlelight in case anyone proper sees. complaining to william about women’s lot in life, and him promising her (earnestly) that their life will be so much more

victoria writing essays based on the things he teaches her; william submitting them to academic journals in his name, reading her the praise her work gets (and feeling guilty and annoyed that it has to be directed to him), reminding her that one day (once they’ve changed the world together) she’ll be able to take credit for it and the world will realise she’s the real brain behind them

eight months after meeting her he finally proposes, down on one knee in the park they met – a little worried that with her feminism she’ll say no, too indignant to get trapped by the patriarchy. – a feminist himself, a little unsure that he should even be asking in the first place. but of course, feminism, is about choice, and her choice is him – her choice is to change the world with him.

Noora’s abuse

Something that really got to me in Skam was when the 2nd season took a darker turn. I hadn’t felt that bad or cried so much just by watching something in a while. 

I kept putting myself in Noora’s shoes the whole time she was thinking that she had been raped. When she couldn’t get out of bed, when her boyfriend finally found out and even though he knew that the person who did it had a history of being an asshole, he blamed her and didn’t believe her at first, and then in the end she had to basically beg him to stay with her. It’s fucked up. Honestly, the only person who seemed really the most concerned about her was Eskild, and that made me love him even more.

Anyway, it’s just something that I feel like I don’t see people talking about, because everytime I see a Noora/Noora&William post it’s just about how pretty she is, or how cute they are together, and I think we need to talk about this darker (yet very real) side of season 2 more often.

From JoJo

“Save My Soul” is about addiction. Of all kinds. I wanted to convey the feeling of powerlessness I’ve felt in my life in an uncomplicated way and show a range of what it might look like for others who’ve been there. Working with one of my best friends, Zelda Williams (director of SMS), was a highlight of my 2015. We’d been talking about working together for like 10 years! Because of the content of the song and the way it touched us both, “Save My Soul” felt like the natural place for us to finally collaborate.
A group of us young, crazy, creatives drove out to the magical desert of Joshua Tree and got naked - most of us emotionally, and a few literally. It was a safe space to be vulnerable and free from judgment and the need to be/ look/ act “perfect”. Everyone who participated connected to the song and brought their truth to the table.
We filmed this video about a month before my father lost his decades long battle with addiction. His death honestly felt like it came out of nowhere…and yet I had been mourning him for years…if that makes any sense. I know all too well from seeing it around me that the fight is not easy. It’s every day. All consuming. I’m not mad at my dad. I love him and I’m sad. He is my greatest heartbreak. This song, which had always been personal to me, takes on even deeper meaning now. “I try to run but it hurts every time I try… Lord I try and I can’t say no.” Makes me think of the universal struggle of seeking victory over the feeling of powerlessness to a situation, a lover, a drug.
Losing my father at the end of last year and knowing the propensity for addiction of all kinds that runs deep in my blood from both sides makes it next-level important for me to LIVE - not just be alive, but THRIVE in his honor. I can do this. And so can you. If you’re struggling, believe the only way OUT is THROUGH. Keep going.

Love, Jo.

P.S. Thank you to the beautiful crazies who dedicated their time and energy to come together and make this video possible. It wouldn’t have happened without you.

‘It is important that parents understand that you can’t be brilliant at everything. It is totally fine to talk about it and to seek help and to speak out, because we’re not all superheroes.

‘There is a lot of pressure on parents, and most of it is self-made by parents themselves, where you feel you have to be able to handle everything. You have to show strength and resilience to everything. But there are some times when it all gets too much and you need to reach out, and that’s totally fine.’

—  Prince William

The war begins… but who’s fighting who?

All Jesus knows is he’s on Daryl’s side.

This high key pissed me off.

Nah, we ain’t the same JT, we need to stop giving people like Justin Timberlake, The Clintons, Robin Thicke whoever the hell us “black cards.”

Justin will never face what our people have gone through in his lifetime. So… nah we ain’t the same.

People in the comments are such coons talking about we bleed the same or whatever Kumbaya shit y'all want to come up with.
Yeah we may bleed the same, have the same organs, but unfortunately our skin has divided people since the beginning of time. In the last 400-500 years we Black people, Justin Timberlake, have never been treated as equals.
Look at how our people get longer sentences.
How we are killed for no damn reason by police?
Why our children get shot by police for holding toys?
How we die in police custody?
How we never get recognition for our vernacular, instead we get laughed at and called ignorant, but we find it at Urban Outfitters & Victoria’s Secret PINK 6 months later?
How our children get their hair cut off or get kicked out of school for wearing protective styles?
How we have to change and damage our hairstyles to go on job interviews?
How about how we don’t get jobs because our names are too ethic?
Feel free to list anything else… please.

So, again no Justin Timberlake, we aren’t the same.

People are saying, “oh he’s from Memphis, he has soul…He’s Black somewhere down the line.”
Tf wrong with y'all? Are y'all serious?

Do you guys seriously think someone who has been entertaining since they were eleven (Star Search, Mikey Mouse Club, N*SYNC) has ever witnessed Black struggle? Just because he was born in Memphis and went to a Baptist church, y'all think he’s down?

Has he ever spoken about BLM movement? Has he ever used his platform to talk about social injustices, just because & not for convenience? I need answers, ahora.

You, Justin Timberlake, are a heterosexual White male living in Tennessee, United States. You have privilege written all over you.

Why does everyone worry about black men so much? I mean I understand the shit they face, but being a woman sucks, being black sucks, so why would those two be a good combo? Why would me being a black woman be less of a struggle than being a black man?

Every time there’s an incentive to help the black race it starts with “We need to do better for our black men…” That’s why when Jesse Williams spoke out for us, I just couldn’t stop thinking “Someone noticed us? Someone cares for us?

And I was so angry black men were getting mad at him and saying the girls only like him because he’s light-skinned, yet scroll through their twitters it’s a bunch of non-black women, or talking shit about black women. I just want to matter too! I want the same programs put in place for black men, for black women too!

Alright, but do you know what I need? I need a scene where Kira sits down with Stiles and talks about accidentally killing someone. Because Kira killed William Barrow, the murderer who kidnapped her in season 3, didn’t she? We see his body mangled by grotesque electrical burns, at least.

Stiles would argue, of course, that their situations aren’t the same – he pulled down the poles, while Barrow attempted to electrocute Kira to death and it just backfired. But then Kira would turn it on him, ask if he meant to kill Donovan with those poles. She’d talk about how maybe if she had more control over her powers, the electricity would never have backfired so explosively.

And sure, Barrow was already a mass murderer, but it seemed clear enough that, in Stiles’ fight against Donovan, the only way one of them was going to leave would be in a body bag. It was accidental, and self-defense.

One conversation won’t fix everything, of course, but it’s a start. And maybe sometimes in the first couple of months Stiles calls at three in the morning, shaken by night-terrors of Donovan’s blood on his hands, but Kira’s no stranger to those kinds of dreams.

(For weeks after killing Barrow, she didn’t touch her parents, terrified that any second she could lose control and kill them, too.)

So yeah, it’s slow, but it helps, having each other.

Dear Sam

Breaking my Tumblr rant dry spell to say, Sam Heughan, I’m going to need you to stop encouraging misogynist William Shatner on Twitter. He has show blatant hatred for Outlander’s lead female character, you, your costars, your fans, and the show itself, which gives you a paycheck. The fact that we’re sitting here in March talking about this insecure has-been, a washed up actor who is still milking the same role, when this started in September rests entirely on you, because you continue to feed him. Enough is enough Sam. At least Rankin knows what’s up and had the balls to step in and defend himself and his costars when you didn’t.
