"All the hardest, coldest people you meet,
were once as soft as water.
And that’s the tragedy of living."
"Another problem with the sex positive movement is the idea that questioning the ethics of a fetish is always “kink shaming”. I think that whatever two adults do consensually is fine, but I also think that it’s important to critically examine why so many people fantasize about rape or have really racist sexual fantasies. Any sex worker can tell you that people have disturbing and fucked-up fetishes, and the idea that we shouldn’t question where those come from is ridiculous."

"Each and every one of us has the capacity to be an oppressor. I want to encourage each and everyone of us to interrogate how we might be an oppressor and how we might be able to become liberators for ourselves and for each other."
The 90s were a time of PEAK makeup looks for black women. I’m not here for airbrushed beauty blogger eyebrows and super contoured noses tbh. Why aren’t we aiming for Laura Winslow and Myra here? Why aren’t we trying to look like we should be in a Foxy Brown or En Vogue video? The maroon matte lip is powerful.
I still feel this way. FYI.
I stay talking about not contouring noses.

Lemme reblog again and let you know why casting that white woman as the female lead in “Drive” was so fucking wrong and fucked up.
Director literally gave her the part because she looked like someone he would want to protect (read: innocent, delicate, helpless).
These traits were ones he literally did not consider a Latina for. He picked her specifically because he fit that damsel in distress imagine that’s been coded as white (and what’s made women of color “unrapeable”).
