One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

Ask me anything   Submit   I could tell you so much about me. I really could. But I'm at once confused and fascinated that you would even care.

The first posters for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings, ahead of today’s trailer.

Um, no.

No. No. No.

Absolutely not.

Christian Bale can NOT be Moses. Christian Bale is whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiite.

Looks like Ridley Scott followed the 1950s casting choices of The Ten Commandments.

So progressive! Look how far we’ve come.  White people are still the default in Ancient Egypt. Not only do the play the Hebrews, the also play the pre-Ptolemaic Egyptians.  Who cares about ~~historical accuracy~~???

So um…who’s playing Moses’ Sudanese Sub Saharan nomadic wife?

Oh, it gets better.  Apparently, a white woman from Spain is playing Zipporah, Moses’ wife.

I’m telling you. Ridley Scott watched The Ten Commandments and said “This looks perfect.  No need to cast this movie ~accurately~”.

this shit looks like a projection of white feelings inadequacy through space and time.

All i’m gonna say is boycott this movie its the only way to send a message.

The next time you see someone with jewelry that says “trust no man,” don’t judge them for their “man hating” or “bougie” ways. Rather, commend them for their superb taste in music.

“Trust no man” is actually a reference to a reference to a 1926 song of the same name by Gertrude “Ma” Rainey, a Georgian and African-American pioneer of blues music. 

I want all you women to listen to me

Don’t trust your man no further than your eyes can see

I trusted my man with my best friend

But that was a bad bargain in the end

A feminist before there was really a term for it, Rainey was also notorious for getting into trouble with small-town authorities over her “women-only parties.” She was a brazen lady-lovin’ badass well-worthy of a 21st century signal boost.

Petition to ban old men from writing books just because they don’t know how to use an iPhone

Petition to have the youth in this country to actually educate themselves instead of spitting out some bullshit they read on some shitty post on facebook that’s untrue, and continues to spread like wildfire.

In 2012, young adults set the record of completing both high school and college and are on course to become the most educated generation in American history. Maybe you should follow the example of ‘the youth in this country’ and do the same.

The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland

At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.

The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”

It’s so fucking weird how girls can just tell when our periods start. Like the exact fucking moment. You’re just sitting in bed or standing in line for groceries and your face does that thing kind of like in That’s so Raven when Raven gets a vision
