"talk dirty to me"
Real Disney princess Lupita Nyong’o
I was gonna do this!
Her outfit actually looked a lot more like Cinderella’s but I guess she’s black so she HAS to look like Tiana right?…..
I’m actually sorry for your brain because I don’t want you to be so stupid. The reason I hate Lupita being compared to Cinderella is because Hollywood is trying to make her story look like Cinderella, “oh look this african girl who made it big on Hollywood and now she has an Oscar, Hollywood is magical” LOL NO
The reason I compared her to Tiana is because Tiana worked hard to get her dream, just like Lupita. And yes, Tiana happens to be black AND THAT FUCKING DRESS LOOKS LIKE TIANA’S SO SHUT THE FUCK UP.
Very protective of her. But, this year there have been times when I have wanted to hug her and there have been also been times when I have wanted to smack her bum and give her a time out because she pushes her luck this year, on more than one occasion! I remember someone said to me in an interview, ‘is it important to you that everyone likes Rae all the time’, and I thought, nah, not at all. Because if everybody liked her all the time then I’ve failed at my job. My job is to make it real, and I hope this year that people will see that because it took me some courage to go with it. (on being protective of Rae)
White feminists calling other white feminists “White Feminists” gets under my skin in a way I can’t quite explain…
probably because they are trying to separate themselves from their whiteness which is literally impossible. like acknowledge that you are also a white feminist and that you get benefits from white feminists. take it gracefully and challenge your sisters in ways that brown feminists cannot.
