I will be writing a sociological research paper about the effects of the lyrics in Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines.
Please reblog this if you are a female who finds the lyrics of this song offensive or upsetting.
But she cute irl jus big
that’s sounds like a personal problem for some. She know who she is and doesn’t let that hold her back. She got a man. Don’t be using her as some standard for your ego
Look at Gabourey at her job.
Look at Gabourey at an awards while folks sit at home.
Look at Gabourey being unbothered
My dude over here gets it
All these comments I approve. It’s a personal issue you must solve. Gabby is doing the damn thing.
SHE IS SO PERFECT, THIS OP IS TRASH. FAT SHAMING AIN’T CUTE.
It’s so silly when people think women who don’t fit into society’s conventions aren’t deserving of love, and see it as a diss when these women find love and they don’t. Salty as hell.
and stop calling her “Precious” that is a character not who she is, her name is Gabourey Sidibe. Use it.
it’s so weird when cool, good looking, talented people have significant others, but spiteful insecure internet dorks don’t. right? i mean, wouldn’t you rather date a spiteful insecure internet loser than a beautiful famous hilarious woman????
Maybe whomever made this doesn’t have a man because they are a raging fucking asshole?
Most people have heard of Koko, the gorilla who could speak about 1000 words in Sign Language, and understand about 2000 in English. What most people don’t know, however, is that Koko was an avid Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood fan. When Fred Rogers took a trip out to meet Koko for his show, not only did she immediately wrap her arms around him and embrace him, she did what she’d always seen him do onscreen: she proceeded to take his shoes off. Love is love :)
OW MY HEART
In interviews, Dr. Angelou used the term “prostitute” to refer to her previous employment without rancor or shame. She spoke candidly to her family about it. She told her mother, brother, and son she would redact the information from the book, but only if they were uncomfortable with it. She had no issue whatsoever with speaking her truth. So why do we not know about it, save for hushed whispers and the occasional salacious reference in reports about and interviews of her? What’s so wrong with our beloved and lovely Maya Angelou having been a sex worker and brothel manager?
Respectability politics no doubt play a role in the erasure of her history as a sex worker. With a wide brush, details on it have been painted over by those who won’t acknowledge such a thing, brushing past it to talk about her awards and accolades. But she had no problem stating plainly: “There are many ways to prostitute one’s self.”
It comes to this: there is no way, in the minds of most people, to have worked as a prostitute and not be ashamed of it. Most people believe there is no way to have held this job (and it is a job), move onto other things, and not consider it a “seamy life” or “shameful secret.” To most people, there is no way a woman of Maya Angelou’s caliber could ever have performed as a sex worker. The idea just won’t gel for them, but that doesn’t mean it’s not the truth. Maya Angelou: Poet Laureate, Pulitzer nominee, Tony Award winner, best selling author, poetess, winner of more than 50 honorary degrees, mother, sister, daughter, wife, National Medal of Arts winner, Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, consummate and powerful woman, artist, and former sex worker. Yes, the woman you love, the woman we all love, the incomparable Dr. Maya Angelou was a sex worker and she proved, in her life and her stories, that there’s nothing wrong with it.
I think I want to write a new rock opera called “MISANDRY!” It’ll feature sure-to-be-instant-hits such as:
“Not all men!”
“But false accusations!”
“Beware the Feminazis!”
“But we always pay for dinner!”
“Why won’t you just make me a sandwich?”
“Just me, my fedora, and I”
And of course, its crowning glory, the breakout blockbuster hit, “BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MENZ?!”
C’mon, folks, chime in. What songs am I missing? Help me write lyrics!
The one that sticks out in my mind is: “how could you think that? (You must be mentally ill, I mean you no harm)”
The notes make this really depressing as a guy reading this :(
I think I was about 11 maybe 12. Me and my mum went on a diet together for the first time.
im not even 16 yet and im really self concious about my…
I was 8 for my first diet. Mom and I did them together. I wasn’t fat, but I was chubbier than the other kids my age in my neighborhood and who I went to school with. Food has been a complicated, maddening issue for me for nearly 25 years, rife with stretches of bulimia, fasting, and binge eating.
I was um, yeah real young. I don’t totally remember.
I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama
that came from taxes I paid.
Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.
what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.
