im literally always looking at my reflection not because im conceited but because i just think it feels kind strange to have a physical form and im constantly trying to process who and what i am
but also i’m hella conceited
i always want to watch new movies, watch other anime, play all my favorite games, read all the books i want, watch new shows, but at the same time want to stay all day on tumblr
you know how when you go to a concert or show of some sort and the person on stage is like “HOW’S EVERYONE DOING TONIGHT?!?!?!?!” and the audience cheers back? why? you’re not answering the question, you’re just yelling. imagine if we did that in daily conversation. “hey jeff, how are ya?” and jeff just starts screaming and clapping in your face
Went to a concert the other night and the drunk guy behind me doing his best to have an actual conversation with the stage
guys who rarely wear suits look at least 385% hotter when wearing a suit while guys who usually wear suits look 451% hotter when wearing casual clothes trust me this is science
And he meant it.
I feel like we should start taking everything Fury says literally…
Vengeance Chase With Wyoming’s “Phantom Grizzly” http://ift.tt/1rMBO2g
I’m not sure what’s the most magical, “Phantom Grizzly” or “Those Secret Female ‘Super-Sensitivity Zones.’”
When this came up on my dash only the top half was visible and my first thought was definitely “Bears are truly the great equalizers”
I knew I missed something in London!
Hoxton Street Monster Supplies exists.
can we just start a movement where we go to male politicians events and we ask them sexist questions like “if you are elected who will take care of the kids” and “what designer are you wearing tonight” “do you think that your stunted and constipated male emotions will affect your decision making”
that last one tho
Well, here’s the thing. The basic premise of this whole deal is that what is or isn’t assumed to be “historically accurate” is used to exclude people of color from participating or being represented in historical and fantasy media of all kinds. Which is why the question from yesterday about white people being in Asia or Africa in “ancient times” is loaded. Because you cannot pretend that this works both ways equally.
What I am doing is trying to show that the same idea, being “historically accurate”, can be used to include people of color. Sadly, there is so much pressure to exclude, that people really feel the need to justify the presence of say, characters of color in a film, or a book, with some kind of historical facts and figures. Even when it’s ridiculously, almost comically, irrelevant-for example, people who seem to think that the history of Denmark has something to do with representation of characters of color in the Disney film Frozen.
What I hope is that by taking care of this end of things, creative types will have free rein to imagine whatever they want, to create what they envision without having to be bludgeoned with “not historically accurate!!!!” every time they turn around, whether or not it’s relevant to their creation.
The bottom line is, what we NEED is more films like Hercules, and fewer films like Exodus. What we see will trump what we KNOW every time-almost everyone knows and understand what The Silk Road was, yet the obvious facts that people traveled on it doesn’t come into play when someone starts insisting that “there were NO people of color in Medieval Europe!!!” Or Ancient Egypt. Or Classical Greece.
Because what we have here:
is a direct result of depictions like THIS:
more than anything historically accurate.
