Remember when Disney had a cute, disabled, poc mermaid?
When i was younger, one of my best friends was a deaf guyanese girl, and her fave princess was Ariel, mainly bc she related to her living without a voice (and her love of swimming)
When this episode aired, she cried and squawked and made sounds that were almost understandable… She saw herself as a mermaid, on tv, with her favourite character of all time
Representation matters, always, no matter what
If your happiness relies on what kind of people you see on the magic box, you are a slave.
Fuck you, don’t reblog from me, ever.
with glasses = einstein
without = marilyn
OMG WHAT IS THIS
i literally just moved my contact in my eye to see if it worked and holy shit
sHIT I TOOK MY GLASSES OFF AND IT CHANGED??
for normal-sighted people: look from far away or squint
I see Monroe even with my contacts in. But my eyes are bad enough that they can’t be corrected to 20/20. There’s no way I will ever be able to look at this and see Einstein.
what does it mean if i see einstein close up and marilyn far away?
I’m guessing you’re far sighted!
You would be near sighted. Thats the test.
My faith in pizza guys has gone up 123%
NO LET ME TELL YOU A STORY
So a few weeks ago I was in a hotel in Savannah with my grampa in the hospital next door, Mom was over staying with him, and the battery in the smoke detector went out so every 5 minutes it would let off this loud, high pitched ‘CHIRP’.
It was annoying as fuck, so I called the front desk to see if they had a battery for it, and they said the only thing they could do was change rooms. We’d already settled in for the night, and needed the next door rooms for my uncles the next day, so I said I’d deal. My uncles had my car in the next town over, so I couldn’t drive and get one myself.
An hour later, I’m ordering pizza and have gone insane because the damn thing CHIRPS. SO. MUCH.
So I begged the pizza guy on the phone to stop and get me a battery, told him I’d pay for the battery, and give him an extra tip for it, and he was chill with it. This adorable fucker gets to my room with the battery, opens it, asks to see the smoke detector, CLIMBS ON THE BED, CHANGES THE BATTERY FOR ME, and tests it.
My pizza was only 20 dollars, but I gave him 40 and told him to keep the change.
I am clearly not fully utilizing my pizza delivery person…..
What’s next pizza delivery hitmen
When I was injured, I told he delivery guy (also Domino’s) that I couldn’t move fast, so I would leave the door open and the money on the bench by the door… He did more than that. He came in, shouted for me, asked where I was, and BROUGHT THE PIZZA UPSTAIRS TO ME (I was sitting partway down the stairs making my way down)
Tbh one could only do that if you really know your local Domino’s, lol… But they’re really chill and often know i make late orders
I feel like a fraud in my CM Punk shirt. I havent been straight edge since highschool 🙈🙈
I think the idea of ‘cultural appropriation’ is a stupid ass reason for people to hate each other for little to no actual reason. It’s not ‘racist’ to wear a clothing design just because a non-white culture wore it first.
Nobody gets angry when an Asian or a Mexican person wears those types of…
'Tumblr's idea of appropriation' is actually an anthropological subject that's been around and been researched for decades, and it's not segregating.
Cultural appropriation is the misrepresentation, decontextualization or exploitation of traditions from marginalized cultures by individuals in relatively privileged groups. It’s a concept from the social sciences, particularly anthropology, is researched quite extensively and specifically describes the involvement of a harmful/exploitative colonialist/imperialist/racist power imbalance. It reinforces stereotypes, Eurocentric beauty standards, racist colonial/imperial power dynamics, and in many cases can be a form of visual/symbolic dehumanization and is a step in committing genocide against a group of people.
“Two ways in which cultural appropriation can be harmful are easily identified. The first sort of harm is violation of a property right … The second sort of harm is an attack on theviability or identity of the cultures or their members.Appropriation that undermines a culture in these ways would certainly cause devastating and clearly wrongful harm to members of the culture … Other acts of appropriation potentially leave members of a culture exposed to discrimination, poverty and lack of opportunity.”
And actually, plenty of people of color have been called out for appropriating others’ traditions, so there is no double standard. You just haven’t seen it.
Clearly the only close-minded person here is you because you’re trying to call people speaking out about being harmed ‘haters.’ How immature is that?
Rad not sad.
found this gem in the 1996 Cornell Women’s Handbook. it’s what to say when a guy tries to get out of using a condom
