ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER IS AN ASSHOLE
this guy was watching the vmas with me and now he’s educating himself how precious is that
he keeps asking me all these questions about aspects of feminism and he’s like “so basically it’s about letting women do what they want without being judged for it” and I was like yea and he was like “oh okay that’s so simple why isn’t everyone a feminist” it’s precious
update: I banged him
can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda
and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind
and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move
Sometimes I get huffy about tumblr but then I see that 260,000 people got the same kind of chills I did reading this…
mainstream tumblr feminism may have many glaring faults but it has bred an army of teenage girls who understand the common ways that misogyny is reinforced in society and who know that they’re better off loving their fellow woman than fighting with her and that’s actually pretty damn revolutionary
Fox News is now comparing the Michael Brown funeral to Margaret Thatcher’s funeral. The subtext is that Margaret Thatcher was important (as a conservative white woman in a position of power) and Michael Brown was not important (as a black man not in a position of power), so how dare the Obama administration send people to his funeral but not to that of the Iron Lady.
I guess it’s a slow news day and Fox News wanted to be assholes?
Fox values whiteness over blackness to the extent that they’ll ignore the fact that Thatcher personally covered up child sexual abuse by a politician close to her.
I hold Margaret Thatcher personally responsible for whatever the fuck Morrissey is today so fuck her.
Why do you assume they are comparing it saying it is a bad thing, and not just pointing out how much Obama cares about this issue (RE: more than he cares about foreign relations)?
Because they’re casting it in terms of this being a criticism of his priorities. Just read the article yourself: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/08/25/more-white-house-officials-at-michael-browns-funeral-than-thatchers/
This is all part of the Fox News cycle. For a refresher on how the Fox news and opinion pieces work together, watch this clip from The Daily Show.
"As a child I never heard one woman say to me, “I love my body.” Not my mother, my elder sister, my best friend. No one woman has ever said, “I am so proud of my body.” So I make sure to say it to Mia, because a positive physical outlook has to start at an early age."
