there’s an incredibly homophobic and transphobic page on facebook called heterosexuals inspiring pride and they make awful clip art comics that literally make no sense and im laughing so hard

as a certified Gay i can confirm that all of these are 100% correct

"Sometimes you’ve just got to du-rag you. This vegan leather du-rag has a tie closure at back and is unlined. Perfect with a black tee dress and slide sandals." (source: x)

i give up. this planet is not for me.

I was actually talking about this phenomenon the other day. This whole thing, along with the trend I’ve seen in SoHo/East Village/LES area for the last few months of white women wearing extremely expensive designer outfits with Nike or Adidas tall socks and sandals, represent white people grasping at anything that has touched blackness and trying to make it fashion.
Like the whole “Nike/Adidas socks and sandals” thing is mostly something black kids wear to or from playing basketball or while running errands around the neighborhood (or for black and Latina mothers to discipline their children), not a fashion statement. But white people see anything black people wear as simultaneously done for fashion, inherently stylish, inherently comedic and worthy of derision, and by definition ready for adoption and “elevation.”
These trends represent white people’s thirst to copy everything black people do, which is so deep that things don’t get looked at critically before they’re stolen.
Alternate summary: this woman has never so much as seen a wave and throwing a fake leather durag on her head’s not going to change that no matter how much you mark up the price.

Sometimes you’ve just got to du-rag you

*throws the fuck up*


Someone dummy out there is paying $50 for a fake-leather du-rag that wouldn’t even give you waves, cause you’d sweat them out before your hair could set. 

I’m confused- I thought du-rags were to keep your hair from catching on your bike (or other) helmet and to catch the sweat. What are they actually for?

No thanks

A guy at a princess store in Disneyland was asking me if I related to Merida in any way and I was like

“I don’t know man. I’m more of an Elinor.”

And he busted out laughing.

What I love most about this movie is that shows that being a princess is not wearing a beautiful dress, marrying a prince and live happily ever after, but a job, a hard job with duties and responsibilities were a lot of people depend on you

being the Lady of a medieval estate was SUCH AN IMPORTANT FUCKING JOB AND SO FUCKING FULL OF HARD WORK WHICH MEDIEVAL MEN ACKNOWLEDGED TBH

(one problem with perception of medieval gender roles is that most of the people who were writing, especially those who were writing HISTORY, were CLERGYMEN who had never been married and lived in a weird situation cut off from the way the rest of the world worked and had like no actual life experience with the real world - and then popular culture’s idea of it has been heavily informed by VICTORIAN choices of who and what to translate and popularize)

upper class medieval women were expected to run and manage the entire estate that they got from their husband (or that they already had in their own right through inheritance or as their marriage portion), a job which was acknowledged as being way difficult and requiring a wife with strength and fortitude and business sense if you wanted to be a successful person

they were the HR managers of households that might have over a hundred people in, and tho a duchess or a queen would certainly not go to the store to do the household shopping, and she probably had a steward to assist her, it was ultimately her responsibility to know what things were needed for that household, to make sure that the appropriate people obtained those things, to oversee the use of the household materials, to make sure that EVERYTHING got done so that ALL those people could live and work smoothly. they wrote letters and managed the business of the estate and networked with other members of the nobility for both important game-of-thrones political reasons and for smaller more personal reasons like ‘that guy has a really nice deer chase, so if i send him some marmalade from our garden, he might send some venison back as a return gift”

even in lower class households mom managed everything and women were basically considered to be shrewder and have better heads for that particularly kind of business than men and choosing a wise wife was the best thing you could do for yourself as a man who intended to be successful

they were like hands-on CEOs and shit yo and don’t get me wrong society was sexist as fuck and they were limited as hell in what they could do and everything was classist beyond belief but no way was being a noblewoman just a matter of sitting up a tower looking pretty & the contributions that they made are so important

also, the ladies of castles were responsible for defense when their husband was away at war (which happened a lot), so while personally participating in battle was unusual (though not entirely unheard-of) they did often find themselves in strategic command. and in wartime they frequently functioned as a sort of de facto logistics officer.

oh, and has anyone mentioned diplomacy. because an arranged marriage is only the START of a princess’s diplomatic career. the alliance she forges with her marriage is one she’s responsible for maintaining her entire life. unless she decides to go ahead and take over the country; that’s been an option too from time to time. :D

suddenly i really want to see a disney movie about a princess AFTER the wedding — forging a political bond with her new husband, defending the castle, sending troops and supplies to make sure he comes home from the war, reading secret reports from her spies in the enemy’s court… *swoon*

image

YES.

And I’ve tried to touch on this with Merida, because ALL OF THIS? THIS is why Merida has absolutely ZERO desire to get married or (eventually) become Queen. Because it means her life - every second of her free time - going down the drain as she becomes more and more tangled up in running the castle AND the kingdom.

(This is also why Elinor’s such a freaking BAMF, she’s got this shit down, man.)

‘Cause people seem to only post the 20-something Audrey Hepburn.

Audrey Hepburn was the granddaughter of a baron, the daughter of a nazi sympathizer, spent her teens doing ballet to secretly raise money for the dutch resistance against the nazis, and spent her post-film career as a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, winning the presidential medal of freedom for her efforts.
…and history remembers her as pretty.

AND HISTORY REMEMBERS HER AS PRETTY

note

this is the first time I have ever seen a picture of her older than 20 and I think that’s scary

i legit thought she died when she was 30, whoops…

Who’s Alex?
Billboard demonstrating gender stereotypes as most people automatically assume that Alex is the boy.

I agree with the point the billboard is making entirely. However, there are many more variables that make you assume Alex is the boy, for example:
The boy is looking directly towards you, while the girl has her eyes closed.
The boy is also center frame, giving the illusion that the billboard is about him. 
The name Alex is directly next to the boy.
The boy has his hat backwards, revealing his face, making it the center of attention, while the girl has her hat forward and it shades her face - diverting the attention away from her. 
My point is, that if the girl was center shot, posing in the same manner as the boy, with the boy alternatively on the right. People would assume Alex is the girl, as she is the center of attention in the billboard.
I agree with what the billboard is representing, but know that there is many more variables that affect our perception of who Alex is. 
Edit: I also failed to mention that the writing in the bottom right hand corner is hardly visible, and the boy is lit up better than the girl. 

my point has been elaborated^^^^^
