oh wait black people can wear long blonde weave but white people cant wear dreads? how does it work please let me understand

donniedarkos:

The difference is the fact that black girls are made to feel ashamed of their natural hair and are basically cornered into getting weaves to assimilate and be accepted in society, whereas when a white person gets dreads or whatever they do it because “cool” and “hip,” not because anyone mocks or puts down their hair, and they do it at the expense of sacred traditions/beliefs, dreads actually have religious/cultural significance, they aren’t just a fun hairstyle. And it’s even worse considering the fact that white people get to steal, disrespect, and extort black culture on a constant basis but don’t actually have to face the repercussions of being black in a racist society, they can take off the dreads or the corn rows or whatever at any time and they still have their white privilege intact. Hope that was clear enough for you to comprehend :)

❝You’re born with a ton of fucks to give, so you spend them like a kid with a credit card. You give fucks about your friends, about your grades, about your fashion sense, about strangers’ opinions. You give way too many fucks about way too many things. You have so many. Then, as you get older, you have maybe 10 fucks per month, so you learn to budget them. You allocate fucks to family and career, but there aren’t enough fucks to give to the newest fads. Oh, someone at work has something they need my help with that’s outside my job title? I’ll do my best to allocate some fucks, but this month is pretty tight. Then, as you get even older, you’re down to 1-2 fucks per month, and those fucks are pretty damn precious. You give them to your family and your hobbies and your job, and that’s kinda it. It’s not your fault – fucks expire too quickly. I would’ve liked to save my fucks from when I was younger but I can’t. Then, you hit fuck insolvency. You’re getting like 1 fuck a year, and you have to make it last. So you go without, and even previously fuck-worthy things, you just can’t give a fuck. Some people run out really quickly, Some people have a fuck trust fund that pays out a decent amount even into old age. But at some point, the fuck faucet runs completely dry and you’re out of fucks to give. It’s just basic Fuckonomics.❞

And depression automatically usurps at least three quarters of available fucks at any given time, often borrowing against future fucks and creating a fuck vacuum. I’m waiting for the day when my fuck debit and credit balance is back in the black.

Final Week - Call to Action!

A big thank you to every single contributor of our fundraising campaign! As we move closer to our closing date, we’re still trying to reach as many folks as possible.

If you’ve chosen to contribute to Probable Robot, we’d love it if you’d reblog this post and add a brief summary of why…

I contributed to this project because I get a huge kick out of being able to say that I helped “make” this album or this movie.  I’ve contributed to a few kickstarters and pledgemusic campaigns for some of my favorite artists and because of that, I’ve gotten autographed items, handwritten lyrics, exclusive swag, and for one of my favorite bands of ever, my name in the linear notes.  I think it’s pretty amazing when fans of something or someone can directly contribute to making something happen for it or for them.

In this instance, I am supporting my friend and fellow fandom person KBen as she goes about getting this movie made so there’s that part of it.  But also, yeah, I get really cool movie swag and I wormed my way into getting my name put somewhere in the movie.  MY NAME IN THE MOVIE!  As a Leo, I consider this a great achievement.

But, more importantly, I’m helping give KBen a chance to do what we all talk about wanting - having visibility and representation in entertainment.  This is an indie LGBTQ sci-fi film - three of my favorite things.  PLUS?  WOMEN.  WOMEN IN THE FILM, MAKING THE FILM, SUPPORTING THE FILM.  This is what I want more of and supporting Probable Robot is my chance to do that.  And when I talk about representation and visibility, as a robot here on Earth, I love this opportunity to see myself represented on screen. 

To any and all of my followers who are reading this, please consider going to the Probable Robot Tumblr page and seeing all the links to all their official sites, including the Indiegogo one where you can make a contribution.  If you think the $1 or $5 or $10 option won’t help, you’re wrong.  Every little bit, every dollar helps.  Plus you get stuff for your money.  Actual movie stuff.  It’s awesome.  And you’d be helping out someone in our fandom in making one of their dreams come true and i think that’s pretty awesome.

And if you can’t contribute, that’s totally okay.  Just please reblog this post or go to the Probable Robot Tumblr and reblog a few of their posts and spread the word.  Maybe someone that follows you might end up contributing.  You never know!  :-D

You know what the first rule of flying is? Well, I suppose you do, since you already know what I’m about to say.

I do. But I’d like to hear you say it.

Even Disney characters want to change it up sometimes. Isaiah Stephens has used his considerable talent and creativity to put some of Disney’s popular heroines in some awesome cosplay options.
1. Belle as Hermione Granger
2. Ariel as The Black Widow
3. Aurora as Danaerys Targaryen
4. Snow White as Wonder Woman
5. Alice as Buffy Summers
6. Jasmine as Chun-Li
7. Mulan as Xena Warrior Princess
8. Tinkerbell as Beatrix Kiddo

I don’t know what’s funnier:

-Watching Xena in a pink dress, fighting ninjas behind some pretty prince’s back, then patting him on the shoulder and telling him he’s “so brave.”

-Gabrielle telling some girly sheltered princess in a Xena costume to stop crying.

-Or just knowing both of them are Lucy Lawless.

We were thrilled to get this nod of support yesterday from fellow indie filmmaker, Alexandra Roxo.
There’s one week left. If you’ve been putting off your contribution to do it later, well… it’s now later. Remember that all contributors within these final ten days are entered into a drawing for a “Support Independent Artists” poster.
Be part of this change that we want to see in the filmmaking world. Help us make this movie so that we can make more movies that inspire others to make their own movies.
Contributions can be made @ http://igg.me/at/probablerobot/x/3610 until 11:59PM PST on Friday, October 3.
