A Tasting Menu of Female Representation:

cl-hilbert:

The Bechdel:

two or more women talking to each other about something other than a man

The Mako Mori:

at least one female character with her own narrative arc that is not about supporting a man’s story

The Sexy Lamp:

a female character that cannot be removed from the plot and replaced with a sexy lamp without destroying the story.

Chef’s Specials:

The Anti-Freeze:

no woman assaulted, injured or killed to further the story of another character.

The “Strength is Relative”:

complex women defined by solid characterization rather than a handful of underdeveloped masculine-coded stereotypes.

List of bisexuals whose identities are erased by the media.

rootbeersweetheart:

alaynas:

All or which have either been given the name “gay” or “straight“ by the media despite coming out. There are more than two sexualities and this is a fact that most people (even on Tumblr nowadays) forget. People tend to assume that since someone is with a person of the same gender, they’re gay. (Or vice versa in Angelina or P!nk’s case) This is incorrect to assume because you’re erasing their identities in the process. The people on this list aren’t gay or straight, they’re bisexual.No matter how much the media tries to erase that.

I will repost this forever

… Example number 4739208679 of how the media paints white criminals as simply adventurous, mentally incapable or troubled. In this case, adventurous.

dekutree:

this is infuriating me

egobus:

also the girl here is only 13 years old, her boyfriend is 18 and legally an adult. This relationship is illegal and technically rape if they’ve had sex. NBC referring to them as “teen sweethearts” is completely inappropriate.

lilbrat7:

This is both kidnapping, and rape.

hotpinkacrylicnails:

yet “mike brown was no angel”

Reaction to this gifset by swikes

taylorswi13ft:

huggableharto:

swikes:

No, we can’t fucking talk about either of those things. What we can talk about, though, is the fact that things like this are the reason that:

  • her new album has few love songs
  • she told Rolling Stone that she doesn’t date anymore
  • she finds it necessary to make fun of herself every chance she gets
  • why “Shake it Off” exists
  • why she DOESN’T DATE ANYMORE
  • why she refuses to date even though it’s her own personal life
  • did i mention that she doesn’t allow herself to date anymore lol

This isn’t funny. This is fucking disgusting. Sure, she looks like she’s shrugging it off like a joke. I get that it’s a joke. So does she. But do people not understand that Taylor Alison Swift’s entire future is basically ruined? She has dated six people in her entire eight year career. Six. Not fifteen in the last year. Not twelve. Not six people in eight months. Six people in eight YEARS. Still, though, she seems to get slammed for it by every media outlet, by every award show host, by every country music fan, by every One Direction fan, by every person who reads any magazine where they pull information out of their asses to get money. They have no problem ruining someone’s reputation for money.

Taylor Swift is a twenty-four year old girl who will eventually need someone to spend the rest of her life with. How is that going to happen now? Not only does Taylor get bashed, but any male she is seen with gets bashed. Taylor could be seen with her brother and get slammed for having a new boyfriend. Sorry, HollywoodLife, but I don’t think Taylor’s very much into incest. 

Whoever decides to date Taylor is going to get shit on by magazines and people everywhere. “Haha, bro, watch out. She might write a song about you” will probably be the end to every article about her future boyfriend and her relationship. Maybe some man out there will be able to brush that off, but what the fuck

A twenty-four year old girl with a heart of absolute gold shouldn’t be forced to go through that. She is trying to live her dream while leaving the greatest impact on the world she possibly can, and now she has to control what she released, who she dates, who she’s seen with, and basically just control every single little aspect of her life. I get that it’s the life of a celebrity, but take Adam Levine for example. He’s a great guy. He’s also idolized by women everywhere. He’s had more girlfriends in his career than Taylor. Do you hear about that?

Get rid of the double standard; let Taylor Swift live her life without the rumors, the jokes, and the hate. As someone who Taylor has impacted positively, it’s just really fucking annoying.

You know when you’re in class with someone who has no idea what the fuck they’re talking about? That’s what being a Taylor Swift fan is like, everywhere. Turn on the TV, false information. Open a magazine, false information. Scroll through Twitter, false information.

Instead of making jokes about Taylor’s relationship-life, why don’t they make fun of her for, I don’t know, something harmless? Tell her she’s addicted to Instagram because she is sometimes seen up at 4 in the morning commenting paragraph upon paragraph of comforting messages to tweens who are dealing with things they don’t know how to deal with.

God damn.

How does society brainwash the youth?

The media. Especially commercials, music videos & tv series. Targeting the young ones while their minds are still shaping.

Media, get your stereotypes right. The Jews like bombing other countries. The Arabs can't drive well. And the Chinese always thinks about money and getting more money. You seem to like switching these three when describing them.

tobiswife:

Why does it seem like everyone forgets about Kida, Pocahontas, and Mulan? All 3 of those princesses, though mostly forgotten, were never trying to find love, though they did find it in the end. Kida wanted to help her people/learn more about how to help them. Pocahontas also wanted to help her people and also wanted to stop a war from breaking out. Then Mulan wanted to find out who she really was/wanted to make her father proud of her. Everyone forgets about these wonderful princesses and it’s a shame because their strong, beautiful, and smart; plus they can kick some butt. 

Cuz we BROWN y’all… so so brown….

Therefore, we don’t exist lol

It only counts when it’s a White girl.

This is what irks me. MULAN ESPECIALLY. She did everything so she could save her father from death. Their was absolutely no romantic motivation involved. All other three princesses up above fit this as well.

Guys…was Belle or even Ariel at first looking for someone to love?

Was Jane?

How about Jasmine?

I don’t think any of them were looking for love.

Jasmine just started out wanting free from a life where she was told what to do.

Ariel wanted to be part of a different world, because she felt like an outcast and felt the human world would accept her more.  (she wanted to be human BEFORE she met Eric thank you).

Belle felt like no one understood her, and she even said in her song, she wants something beyond her, something bigger than her, something so big that she can barely even fathom it (that’s deep)

Belle: I want so much more than they got planned.

Heck she also wants a friend who would understand and accept her.  She noted how she didn’t have any friends in town, and in her I want song, this…

Belle: If someone could understand…

She wasn’t looking for romance.

Jane was looking for the gorillias for her and her father to study.

Oh and here’s an old school disney princess for you.

Cinderella

Was she looking for romance? NO! She wasn’t honestly.  She just went to that party because for once in her life she wanted to have fun, not being told what to do, and enjoy herself for once.  She wanted to do something for once, something she wants to do.

She met the prince and love at first sight happened there.

Megera only wanted freedom from Hades.

And how about Rapunzel from Tangled.  She only wanted to go outside for once, to see the lights.  Love wasn’t on her mind either.

So yeah….screw you media.

UGH GOD YES THANK YOU BLESS THIS POST LEMME KISS YOU

This is why I fucking hate the media, they twist everything around.

You don't say.
