Chef Ramsay tracks down every idiot who’s ever made a woman-belong-in- the-kitchen “joke” and forces them to explain why it’s funny while he’s shouting at them
I have a deep need for this.
The thing is, he would probably do this.
Donald Glover on the suggestion that he play Spider-Man
Doctor Who fans should probably be prepared for this, because this goes down every time a new Doctor is going to be cast and a black actor is suggested
The real concern over this was that he’d be playing Peter Parker. I would love to see Donald Glover as Miles Morales, but it’s the same as having other ethnicities portray characters that have already been set as something else. (A lot of people got mad at STID because of this). A character is a character, and while those with the license can take some liberties with the character they create, saying “it’s in another universe” doesn’t quite stand up under scrutiny. That being said, the Doctor will be the Doctor, whatever race he (or she) will be.
Miles Morales didn’t exist at the time of this controversy. Miles Morales was inspired in part by the incredibly racist backlash against a black actor playing Peter Parker. The thing Donald’s talking about in these screencaps is the reason why Miles Morales exists.
The fact is, there is no reason Peter Parker has to be white. His race is completely irrelevant to his character, so there’s no reason why a black actor can’t play him.
Now, for characters of color, there is a reason why they have to be played by actors of color: White actors are overrepresented and actors of color are woefully underrepresented. There are already disproportionately too many white actors in the media.
So, because racial representation in the media is so imbalanced:
- Every role for a white character that is given to an actor of color is a correction of that imbalance, and a step towards more equal representation
- Every role for a character of color that is given to a white actor adds to that imbalance, and is a step away from equal representation.
And that’s the issue. With Star Trek Into Darkness, people were upset because it was whitewashed. It added to a racist equality in a way that Star Trek in particular vehemently preached against.
However, casting Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury was a good thing because people of color are underrepresented in the media, especially in comics and science fiction. Casting him as a character whose race was incidental to their character rather than being their defining feature was a progressive step, while whitewashing a character of color like they did in “Star Trek Into Darkness” is a regressive step.
It’s only when there’s equal representation that you can make the argument that actors of color can’t be cast as traditionally white characters because they’ve always been white.
This is the clearest explanation for this that I’ve come across and I really like it.
Seriously, white people: Don’t we have enough characters that look like us already? Or are we worried that we won’t be able to identify with one that doesn’t? Maybe we just don’t feel like we should have to put forth the effort it takes to see ourselves when we look at someone else.
This is the kind of explanation I always wish I could come up with in real life arguments, instead of having my mind go blank. I should start printing these out when I find them and carrying them around.
DO YOU GUYS HAVE THAT ONE FRIEND THAT DOESN’T THINK SHE’S ANYTHING SPECIAL BUT SHE’S BEAUTIFUL AND FUNNY AND WITTY AND EVERYTHING AMAZING THAT YOU COULD EVER WANT IN A PERSON BUT SHE DOESN’T SEE IT AND YOU JUST WANNA TAKE HER AND SHAKE HER AND SCREAM IN HER FACE ALL OF THE AMAZING THINGS ABOUT HER JUST SO SHE WILL APPRECIATE HOW ABSOLUTELY LOVELY SHE IS
someone could be thinking this about you right now you never know
Vic and I played GTA pretty much all night while in a 6hr 20min skype call. At first, we were in this one session that had players who were using map glitches to spawn kill but then we both disconnected and wound up in a new session filled to the brim with aussies with tanks.
One of them killed vic so i went and air trusted at the tank until vic came and joined me, the tank glitched out and started doing cartwheels so vic and i went and put our sexy outfits on and went back to air thrust the tank in panties and stockings… and then we made around 8 new friends and ended up having a crash up derby and every time someone would kill me i would snipe them but the one guy always came rushing over to aid me and then the whole group followed oh my god. It was glorious. We all rode the roller coaster and rode the bus and randomly killed each other.
Me and this dude air thrusted each other for 3 minutes straight while vic stood there and was squeezed into the corner, being forced to watch in horror. If someone killed one of us or them, we hunted them down like a pack of wolves. This other chick got all jealous and kept killing vic over and over, and pulling her out of the shotgun seat in the car god it was so fun.
I really love GTA some days.
If you can’t handle me randomly blurting out song lyrics that relate to what you just said, we can’t be friends
why can’t we be friends why can’t we be frieeeendds
If my life was made into a disney movie it would be called “Booty and the Feast.”
mainstream tumblr feminism may have many glaring faults but it has bred an army of teenage girls who understand the common ways that misogyny is reinforced in society and who know that they’re better off loving their fellow woman than fighting with her and that’s actually pretty damn revolutionary
So since my account migration period is up, i moved my xbox back to my region and now can finish the wolf among us and get episode 3 of twd season 2!!
