SO MUCH LADY LOVE

I LOVE GISELLE YOU GUYS 

No, but what gets me in this movie

is that every woman is beautiful to Giselle.

Women who wear suits and aren’t cute and petite. Women with wide hips and large rear ends and small breasts. Women who are black and white and every other ethnicity she came across, I’m sure. Women with straight hair and natural hair and grey hair. Older women and middle-aged women and young women.

Everyone is beautiful to Giselle. There’s no reason anyone wouldn’t be beautiful. There’s no reason beauty should ever be just one thing, that being a princess should ever be just one thing.

Everyone is a princess to Giselle, and if one of the princesses politely corrected her and said they were a prince she’d probably nod earnestly and talk about how dashing and handsome they looked too.

Anonymous asked: What a childish way to answer a sincere inquiry. You realize you're making fun of a book based on the life of differently abled people, regardless of if you don't like who wrote it.

You clearly have /no clue/ what the issues concerning John Green as an author and an “educator” and why his works are problematic (at best). It’s really obviously that you’re trying to start a fight with me and attempt to discredit any standing I have to critique him as an artist. My issue with John Green concerns his romanticizing of people facing terminal illness and disabilities as “Mystic gatekeepers to truly understanding your magic white life”, his elitist approach to literature and education, his attempt to teach “nerdy girls” value by calling them “untapped romantic resources”, his unapologetic support of transmisogynist and otherwise problematic bloggers (including his bullshit brother), among a veritable ocean of other reasons.

Is it good that The Fault in our Stars puts the spotlight on individuals with disabilities and/or chronic/terminal illnesses? Yes.

Is the way he writes these characters and the tropes/archetypes he fits them into okay? No.

Does John Green incorporate his fuckton of privilege into the very fabric of a good deal of his work and undergoes little to no effort to apologize or undo the bad he does? Yes.

Anonymous asked: You are pro abortion because...?

sliceofbri:

I’m pro-CHOICE. No one WANTS more people to have abortions. I don’t want anyone to be in a situation where they need an abortion, they’re painful and expensive, but I believe they should be available as an option. I advocate for cheaper access to birth control and comprehensive sex ed so that less unwanted pregnancies occur to begin with, and I advocate for more clinics like planned parenthood so that more people can afford pre-natal care and won’t have to have an abortion because they can’t afford a child.

A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Since you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.


The Episcopal Church, everyone. I’m a fan.

Someone stood next to me under the heat lamp at the bus stop this morning. Maybe I’ve managed to stop having a scary aura?
