"What if women had minstrel cycles instead of menstrual cycles? You’d just have a guy with a lute follow you around for a week every month and play you songs constantly?"
My boyfriend (via thecarrionlibrarian)
#no but can you imagine if that was how you learned once a month you weren’t pregnant#by some dude singing songs about the victory of it#you wake up and he’s there and you are so happy#this dude becomes your favorite dude#but then you realize you haven’t seen your friend’s minstrel in a while#I mean everyone notices#like half the people are on the same cycle so for one week out of four your job is just flooded with fucking minstrels everywhere#the cacophony#but Mary over there is all alone#and she’s like my minstrel is late#but we all fucking know#her minstrel has gone off to find her a baby#a nine month journey he must make alone#and until he comes back there is no music in her life#what a glorious world this would be#I love the minstrels (@onionjuggler)
Can we please have a story about this?

narutos idea of what a hot woman is
narutos idea of what a hot guy(s) is
it’s like with girls he had no idea so he imagined a girl version of himself and went with it but with guys he had so many ideas he just couldn’t pick the best one so he went with all of them and… I’m not saying he’s 100% gay but he certainly is not 100% straight either

"Elmo is with his good friend, Lupita. They are talking about all the great things about their skin. For example, Elmo’s skin just happens to be very ticklish. Lupita’s skin happens to be a beautiful brown color. Skin can come in all different shades and colors. Isn’t skin just the best? However, ticklish or smooth or black or brown or white or tan, be sure to love the skin you are in."
I love this. I LOVE THIS. I love this. Children need to see this. Adults need to see this.

When TMZ released video of Ray Rice brutally knocking out Janay Palmer, national outrage ensued. But not everyone condemned this incident of domestic violence. Many people, mostly conservatives, praised it and said Palmer deserved it. That includes South Carolina Republican troll Todd Kincannon, who wins the prize for worst tweet about domestic violence ever.
Who wants to bet he considers himself a pro-life, family values-conservative?
Oh, he is. When the 2013 filibuster with Wendy Davis was going on, he was the dickhead who linked to a coathanger sale, and has said that transgender people belong in camps.
He’s literally human garbage.
Oh, he’s that troll? Good to know. Let’s keep an eye on this fuckwit. It’s only a matter of time before he’s caught beating his own wife or snorting coke off a male sex worker’s ass and trying to find a way to blame feminism for it.

"supporting" trans children by misgendering them
It’s really fucking funny to me because after the first him her mom corrected herself and then continued on with calling her daughter “her”
This is fukh8 who is quoting wrong and actually changing the quote to make sure you know this girl was assigned male at birth
It’s not the mom who fukh8 was quoting.
I hate them so much

"When I was doing my first movie, the only thing I knew is that I wanted a female editor. Because I just felt a female editor would be more nurturing. To the movie and to me. They wouldn’t try to be winning their way just to win their way, all right? They wouldn’t be trying to shove their agenda or win their battles with me. They would be nurturing me through this process."
Quentin Tarantino, “The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing”
this is a weird documentary. they use the default pronoun “he” to refer to editors, yet time and again there’s creepy shit in there about the way male directors, with their massive egos, have used these “invisible” non-celebrated women collaborators for their own self-aggrandizement
also tarantino sounds like a fucking sexist prick here
esp. given the fact that women in Hollywood are simply not allowed the opportunities as a director that a white man like him received
they’re second-place little helpmeets who are disallowed from the big time
and they’ve got to ~nurture~ you without getting the kind of credit you get as a white male director
It’s double gross because the drop of editing quality in Django was SO DAMN OBVIOUS. Sally Menke was who defined that delicious postmodern visual handwriting for him (and it’s shameful I only learned that late in art school, after years of considering myself “a film buff”), and her passing is a great loss to the craft.
I didn’t know Sally Menke’s name or how much of the work attributed to The Great Tarantino is hers before tonight
it’s sickening how women’s artistic genius is erased
and Tarantino got exactly what he wanted: someone to “nurture” him and make him look good as an artist
and never be spoken of
never take any of the limelight from him
because fucking nobody cares about women and their achievements
and white male directors have been and continue to be the little feted monstergod babies of Hollywood
Film editing is one of those positions that women take because they can’t get hired as directors. Kind of like how women in the comics industry end up as colorists because noone wants them as the headline artist.
How many great directors have partnered consistently with female editors? A lot of them. Scorsese is a great example. Thelma Schoonmaker has edited every single one of his films since 1980, starting with Raging Bull. She is instrumental to his success. But is she a household name like Scorsese is? Of course not.
Imagine a world where she directed her own films, and what those films could have been like. I’m not saying all film editors wish they were directors or anything. But it’s no coincidence that the position most open to female moviemakers is the most unsung, and that’s part of why there are so few female directors today.
