Angelica summing up what having responsibilities really means.
Breaking news: White fuckboys on twitter bitching how funny it is that Beyoncé is a feminist when she and her dancers were provocative and half naked. Despite feminism being about empowerment and a woman’s right to do whatever the hell she pleases with it, they just don’t seem to be able to grasp this concept.
In other news, men still don’t know what feminism is, still bitter that they aren’t Beyoncé and still making themselves look like asses on the internet.
And now the weather.
She played Chimamanda’s part about how feminism diminishes women’s sexuality but praises men’s and they still wanna act stupid. It’s not ignorance at this point, it is racism + woman-hating; point-blank, period.
This guy works for an extreme right-wing publication called Town Hall. He’s a sexist and a racist piece of shit, so no wonder he doesn’t know what feminism is.
all i hear when black folk criticize Blue Ivy’s hair is
"i hate myself"
if you use a slur toward a group youre not a part of your punishment should be saying that slur over and over while locked in a room with a group of ridiculously strong people of said affected groups. your only weapon is a tiny set of maracas
I would make it into a song and dance number in the stereotypical accent of that group. They wouldn’t stop laughing long enough to beat me up.
have you ever interacted with other people in your life
I was just going to say this.
If this isn’t about race, why are racists donating to darren wilson?
I may always reblog every gifset/imageset I see of this scene, if only to point out (over and over and over again) that Black Widow’s “very specific skillset” is not, actually, ass-kicking (as amazing as she is at that), because all the Avengers can kick ass to a pretty high degree. The Black Widow’s superpower (as it were) is emotional manipulation.
She is not interrogating this man not while tied to a chair. She is tied to a chair because that is exactly where she wants to be, because apparent vulnerability on her part is part of her interrogation. She uses the exact same trick on Loki later, when she leads him into gloating over having successfully pushed her buttons (and I have a theory that he did actually push her buttons, that she was genuinely distressed by the things he said to her because Loki is old enough and smart enough to know when someone is lying to him) and turns his gloating around on him, uses it to dig into the cracks of him, because that is what she does, and she can do it even when her target is expecting it. (Really, Loki knows that’s why she’s there. He was expecting to be physically tortured first, and for her to come be sympathetic later, if you recall, but Loki and Widow both know that wouldn’t work.)
And this is why she’s so unsettled by the Hulk. The Black Widow relies on emotional manipulation — and the Hulk, to the best of her knowledge, only has varying shades of a single emotion: anger. She doesn’t know how to manipulate a creature if it doesn’t have all the hooks to emotions like pride and lust and guilt and greed that she’s used to using.
This is a REALLY good character analysis of Natasha.
