Remember when Disney was all like ‘fuck how races work and homogeneous casts and couples’?
Black and white couple produce fillipino-american child. White dude is the valet. White step mother, one white step sister, one black step sister. Just a jumble, and it ought to happen again.
First multi-racial cast performing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
Whitney Houston was producing Rodger and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” and was to star in it until she decided that Brandy Norwood would make a better Cinderella. Brandy would not do it unless her idol Whitney took the Fairy Godmother role.
Brandy Norwood became the first African-American to play Cinderella. This version broke viewer-ship records when it debuted, and it holds the record for the bestselling video for a made for TV movie.
So fuck any noise where people say audiences don’t want to see a mixed race couple, or more people of color. This was a success from television. I still remember Brandy singing Impossible.
That ought to happen again. Mixed race live action cast where the relationships don’t made genetic or racial sense.
This was my life when it came out…
It’s still my life and favorite version
In my own little corner in my own little chair…
June 5th is Barricade Day for the Les Mis fandom — the anniversary of the 1832 uprising that forms the climax of Victor Hugo’s novel and all subsequent adaptations. But that’s not the only anniversary we should remember.
One year ago today — June 5th, 2013 — a young antifascist student activist was killed in Paris by skinheads. Clément Méric was only 18 years old, but he was heavily involved in several radical antifascist and antiracist organizations. Weeks earlier, for example, he had taken part in counter-protests when the French right marched in opposition to marriage equality.
On the afternoon of June 5th, Méric and some of his friends ran into a group of young far-right neofascists outside a store; a fight broke out between the two groups and Méric wound up dead. It’s still not clear whether he died from the blows he received (from skinheads who were probably wearing brass knuckes), or from falling to the sidewalk afterwards. Today, four young men remain under investigation.
Méric’s death prompted a huge outcry in France with massive antifascist demonstrations throughout the country, and led to the banning of three far-right youth organizations. Many took it as yet another sign of the extreme right’s resurgence in Europe…a resurgence that was confirmed in the latest European Parliament elections.
I know Barricade Day is usually an occasion for fan work production and historical geeking. I don’t mean to be a downer, really. But I think it’s important to realize that the struggle against oppression and dictatorship isn’t over — it continues to this day, even in the very city where the barricades stood.
And today, at the heart of that fight, are the same people who fought and died in 1832 (both in real life and in Hugo’s story): students and the young.
That’s really something worth commemorating.
Gay does not mean interested in you.
Lesbian does not mean “probably going to hit on you”.
Homosexual isn’t a horny caricature trying to fuck you.
Get over yourself.
Bisexual does not mean “wants to have a threeway.”
Pansexual doesn’t mean ‘fuck everything and anything’.
Asexual doesn’t mean “just never had sex with you.”
Heterosexual doesn’t mean ‘I’m an asshole and bi/trans/homophobic.’
those pictures of you that destroy your self esteem

It’s like CPR for toilets
that sudden realization when you see someone you think you’ve met before in your past

the world needs feminism because UNDER AGED GIRLS are getting kicked out of their proms for wearing “revealing” dresses that cause ADULT MALE CHAPERONS to “lust” after them and nobody is doing anything about the ADULT MALE CHAPERONS who are lusting after UNDER AGED GIRLS
i can’t breathe
straight guys are absurd. i once asked one if they’d kiss a boy for $50,000 and they said no. at that point it’s not even gay it’s just the best option
