Admit it. We’ve all watched slightly questionable movies and tv shows just because our favourite actors were in it for .03 seconds
This would be a fun island to be trapped on
OooOoOo so pretty aah
me: hey i’m kinda good at this writing thing
*reads other people’s writing*
me: i am a literary potato
there’s so many parents who don’t recognize that they are abusing their kids
it is critical that children become aware of abuse from adults and that they recognize what abuse can look like, and that’s why I very strongly believe that schools need to start talking about parental abuse
otherwise, you get people like me who didn’t realize it was abuse until they’re 16-17 and already have PTSD
This is one of the most insulting things that I have ever seen, it makes me so mad I actually want to cry. I can’t believe magazines think that they can just dip a woman in brown paint, give her clothes from my culture to put on for a couple hours and then have audacity to call her an “African Queen”. Growing up I heard every joke about Africans and saw the negative stereotypes portrayed by the media that tried to make me feel so bad about where I come from. Yet Ive noticed when fashion magazine want to do spreads portraying poise and exoticness they often turn to Africa ( and many other foreign continents/nations) proving time and again that Africa is more than the negative images you see in the media) but this time, to try and take parts of my beautiful culture just to have white women play the role of an “African Queen” proves that beauty cannot be seen in our countries/cultures unless it is represented by White people.
not to mention that fucking photographer used every backhanded “”apology”” in the book.
"oh, im sorry that YOU misunderstood, all of us smart white people over here knew that its not blackface!!!!"
