Watching the Rise trailer and she just has the absolute best facial expressions.
Go to your nearest target. Buy a two pack of pushup bras (24$ for 2), and target’s bra inserts (12$). Then go to your nearest Walmart and buy the Vasserette Control Shapewear Panties (2.50 each), they do wonders for helping your tuck. There you go! You just saved yourself a lot of money, you can afford to buy enough to wear every day, and best of all you look fabulous. -@twidx
recs for trans women are so rare on tumblr!! spread this, people.
please make asexual characters
please make aromantic characters
please make agender characters
please keep “ally” out of the acronym
folks who say otherwise have no fucking idea what its like to be practically invisible you dont get any say on any of those things
triple a representation and visualization is so important please give that to people
remember when these pieces of shit were everywhere and they were the best thing ever
and when you were too old to play with them you would just randomly move one when no one was looking
you’re never to old to move a bead from one side of the thingy to the other when no one is looking
I really like how she tries to defend herself by stating how much she loooveees Japanese culture
"You guys I did this with Japanese people it’s cool"
"I go to Japan like so much ok I know the culture"
"I know so many Japanese people and even the director was Japanese!"
God these bullshit statements alone just insinuates that hey Japanese people are working with me so I can’t be doing anything wrong or racist, otherwise they’d tell me!
Yeah because even if you’re an artist at the end of her career and desperately trying to save it, you’re still a well-known name and PoC don’t have many opportunities in this industry and will take any job that’s offered to them. This includes everyone who worked on this video. Why?
Because People of Color are easily replaced. They’re expendable.
Oh, you don’t want to work with her cause her entire music video is racist? Whatever. We’ll just find another director/choreographer/dancer.
That’s it. That’s literally it. That’s how it works. So we suck it up and work with these people cause the industry doesn’t value us enough and not working only harms us, not the artist.
I mean, spewing random Japanese words that have nothing to do with your song is just short of saying Ching Chong Long Ting Tong, but you know. She’s just admiring the culture.
Sure does remind me of this skit:
This is extremely racist and insulting. I’m an Asian American. I studied Japanese for two years. I’ve yet to begin to scratch the surface of Japanese culture and etiquette and I’m not even that confident or comfortable speaking or writing it because I don’t feel as if I know enough about it to say I can speak Japanese.
Singing random words in a language you don’t know is racist when you use it for the sake of a song that just appropriates a part of their culture so much.
Then you have your Japanese backup dancers. They all look the same, they’re silent, and “kawaii”.
Of course, to you dear Avril, this sure doesn’t perpetuate the stereotype of cute, obedient, and submissive Asian
womengirls right? They’re just too damn cute and fit your set!
God. You’re turning 30. I don’t care if you want to act childish or dress a certain way. But grow the fuck up and stop making arguments that defend your racist actions and try to justify them by name-dropping everything Japanese.
You’re not Japanese. You don’t know Japanese. You don’t know Japanese culture. Your song doesn’t “honor” or “flatter” Japanese people or Japanese culture. It perpetuates the stereotype the West already holds and you try to pass it off as being cute and creative and appreciative and dedicate it to your Japanese fans.
No. Fuck you.
DUDE, why are you shitting yourself over this? So what she throws in a few Japanese words? Isn’t that the same as what Shakira does in her songs? African, Spanish etc. - c’mon.
white girls tossing in random Japanese words is not the same as a bilingual Columbian woman singing in Spanish
"omg so wat if avril say stuff in japanese!! shakira, a fluent spanish speaker who is also half columbian, used spanish words!!! "
It’s not the place of the unaffected to judge whether or not a marginalized group’s pain or offense is legitimate.
Garry so moeeee
There are iconic moments in animation history that take my breath away, and make me realize why I became a lover of the Arts. This happens to be one of them.
Please consider emailing Time magazine at email@example.com to get them to reconsider not putting Laverne Cox on their list. She overwhelmingly got voted in at 91.5%, but was not put on there. Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood had 25% of the vote and was put on there.
The erasure of trans women, and women of color needs to stop. Ms. Cox does nothing but good work.
