one thing i hate about this website is how we just loooove equality and tolerance and acceptance but heaven forbid someone be pro-life or politically conservative or go to church or be a straight white male

just because someone isn’t a minority or being obviously oppressed doesn’t mean they’re to blame and it doesn’t give you the right to automatically hate their guts

I’m officially naming this award season “the year stars stopped giving a fuck”

Far be it for me to dispute Cate Blanchett, or the larger point she’s making, but the guys are all wearing the same thing.  If the camera were to do that to the guys, it’d just be black pants over… and over…. and over…

I agree. In this particular case, it’s apples and oranges. Tuxes versus gowns. Photocopies versus unique work. Perhaps their real foul was not running the shot by her before hand.

I would like to point out, though, the salacious nature of the slow pan up a woman’s body. In this particular case, detail isn’t usually put on the hem of a dress (because no one wants to see hand beading or embroidery get dirty or ripped out by an errant stiletto), and a full-body shot would be better to showcase the drape and design of these beautiful gowns like in the fashion plate glossies. Starting at the bottom and slowly panning up dehumanizes women because you don’t see their faces until you’ve seen the rest of their bodies. Their identities don’t matter.

That’s a really good point, thank you.

I want to live in a world where 

My brother, Jacob, isn’t told he should feel guilty for having light skin and liking girls

My sweet baby cousin, Becka, will never get called a n***** or an oreo

My friend, Quinton, isn’t sneered at because he has tattoos and piercings and likes boys

My aunt, Mindy, isn’t made fun of for being a large woman who homeschools her 5 kids

My mother, Susan, doesn’t get derogatory comments because of her red hair

My cousin, Tommy, won’t get called an immigrant or a wetback

My little brother, Patrick, isn’t made fun of because he is skinny

My roommate, Shelby, isn’t called a dyke or a whore because she used to date a girl

My dad, Lin, isn’t laughed at because he’s a Christian man and doesn’t drink or curse

I want to live in a world where if someone raped my little sister, Katherine, the physical appearance, beliefs, gender, and sexual orientation of her and her attacker would not interfere with the punishment of the rapist.

Apparently there was a group of Native Americans protesting the Cleveland Indian’s racist mascot, Chief Wahoo, outside Progressive Field before an Indians game, and this totally-not-racist fan (we know this because allegedly he stated he had Native friends) decided to confront them IN FULL RED FACE AND A CHEAP HEADDRESS.
Much respect for the man on the left for not killing that racist right then and there.

This picture illustrates perfectly why the mascots need to change. Any other argument is invalid. Cc: @redskins @indians

The culture surrounding this baffles me. How hard is it, as the owner our manager of the team, to look at the original logo and go “holy shit, that IS really racist. Thanks for calling me out on that. The team is now known as the Pangolins and all merchandise and media will be changed immediately because we’re a well-funded major league team full of grown-ass adults.”

I’m only about 1/8th native.. personally I don’t really have a problem with the mascots. However, don’t fuck with people who do. That dude just needs to shut the fuck up. He’s lowering the intelligence of the whole block.
