Anonymous asked: more on the whole 'never been a strong female before Lucy'. Have they ever seen a studio Ghibli movie? They have an abundance of brilliantly fleshed out female characters without romantic interests and not shooting anyone for not speaking english. But hey, I guess it doesn't matter because it's asain animation and the girls aren't shooting up folk.
giving trans women roles to cis men
- robs trans women actors (who can’t get cis women roles) and gives those roles to cis men who already have an enormous amount of roles and opportunities
- reinforces the false idea that trans woman are somehow equivalent or analagous to cis men in costume
like really thats all there is to it. theres nothing you can say that justifies this practice
Egan says he and other minors were passed around like pieces of meat at sex parties, and he claims Singer was not alone.
The home where the sexually-charged pool parties allegedly occurred was in Encino. It used to be owned by Suge Knight, who sold it Marc Collins-Rector. Suge is not involved in the case, but Egan says Collins-Rector was one of the main perps. Criminal charges were filed against Collins-Rector — he copped a plea to one count of having sex with a minor. Attorney Herman says Collins-Rector has fled the country.
Egan says the men at the party would pour liquor down his throat and then sexually assault him. In one case he says Collins-Rector put a gun in his mouth and threatened him (self-destruct programming).
Egan says other minors were also abused. Herman said “Hollywood moguls have been using their positions of authority (higher ups) to exploit children sexually.”
“I can tell you that the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That’s the biggest problem for children in this industry. … It’s the big secret (Shhh) I was old enough to realize what they were and what they wanted … till I went, They were everywhere. There’s one person to blame in the death of Corey Haim. And that person happens to be a Hollywood mogul. The big secret is, folks, that with Haim particularly, and especially it was present at the Academy Awards when he was snubbed. They didn’t even take the time to acknowledge his death in the [memoriam,] and that’s when I realized that there was a bigger conspiracy here. They were trying to sweep him under the carpet. They wanted us to be kinda erased from history so that one day when we were old enough to reveal these secrets, nobody would take us seriously anymore. I’m saying that there are people that were the people that did this to both me and Corey that are still working, they’re still out there, and they’re some of the richest, most powerful people in this business. An adult male convinced him that it was perfectly normal for older men and younger boys in the business to have sexual relations, that it was what all the guys do. So they walked off to a secluded area between two trailers… and Haim allowed himself to be sodomized.There was a circle of older men around this group of kids. And they all had either their own power or connections to great power in the entertainment industry (Higher Ups/Handlers).” - Corey Feldman
WARNING - PLEASE READ IF YOU HAVE A PEANUT ALLERGY AND LIKE TO SHMEAR MAKEUP ON YOUR SKIN TO MAKE YOU LOOK AS FLAWLESS AS YOUR PERSONALITY
I am one such an individual, and last night I was super pumped to try this concealer. Out of curiosity I read the ingredients and saw something called arachidyl behenate.
Anything with the root “arachi” such as “arachis oil” is probably peanut related. And, sure enough, I did some research and arachidyl behenate is peanut-derived. Which is the story of how I nearly smushed a deadly food allergen into my skin.
There’s a report here from last year that seems to indicate that some food allergens are neutralized when processed for cosmetics, but I’m not sure that applies for peanuts. And at any rate, they did indicate there was still a risk of a reaction if such proteins weren’t processed properly.
Now, I’m gonna say it outright - I’m not one hundred percent sure that a heavily processed peanut-derived chemical such as arachidyl behenate will cause a reaction. I’ve worn a lot of makeup over the years without checking the ingredients, so I could have easily used a product containing it without knowing. Still, better safe than sorry.
Alternate names for peanut products (anything with the prefix “arachi-” should be considered suspect):
beer nuts, earth nuts, goobers, groundnuts, groundnut oil, hypogaeic acid, katchung oil, mandelonas
Here’s some articles on the subject:
Stay safe, guys, and please signal boost for any peanut-allergic followers you might have!
YES THIS IS ACTUALLY VERY IMPORTANT
I T HINK YOU MIGHT HAVE JUST SAVED MY LIFE ??
cishet people be like NOOO U CANT USE THAT TERM TO DESCRIBE UR SEXUALITY/GENDER ITS MADE UP WORD!!! and then turn around and make up ridiculous terms like mancrush and guyliner and man-purse in order to keep their precious hetronormitive gender roles intact
this is an extremely important post
Because women of colour experience racism in ways not always the same as those experienced by men of color and sexism in ways not always parallel to experiences of white women, antiracism and feminism are limited, even on their own terms… The failure of feminism to interrogate race means that the resistance strategies of feminism will often replicate and reinforce the subordination of people of colour, and the failure of antiracism to interrogate patriarchy means that antiracism will frequently reproduce the subordination of women
A onetime aspiring actor alleges the filmmaker sexually assaulted him in the late 1990s, when he was 17 years old
This isn’t Terry-related, but seeing as how anything Marvel-related is Tumblr gold, it’s important to make sure this gets spread as much as possible. If supporting victims of abuse and taking down predators in positions of power is important to you, you won’t go see the new X-Men movie.
