Just because Joan Rivers died does not make her a good person

She was awful to celebrities and harassed them constantly and with no degree of self control (ie. Rhianna)

Do not forget her remarks on Palestine. Do not forget all the horrible things she tweeted at Rhianna and hundreds of other celebrities. Do not forget that she became famous by abusing others.

You simply need to tell your daughters not to be like Jennifer Lawrence.

Tell them not to be beautiful, because then it’s inevitable that strangers will think of you as nothing but a meatsack.

Tell them not to be intelligent. Maths, sciences, arts, humanities – being clever is useless if you’re still female underneath.

Tell your daughters there is no point in being an Oscar winner. To achieve success in your chosen trade or profession, and to be recognised for it, cannot cure the disability of your sex.

It doesn’t matter how beautiful, moral, bright, pleasant or useful you are. If you are female, you will have trouble every day of your life.

After all, it would be too much to expect the handful of men responsible for it to behave better, be arrested, or be the least bit sorry.

Anonymous asked:

why do you use the word "queer" when it's a slur?

bi-characters answered:

So, assuming I’m feeling better soon, regular posts should start up again on Sunday. But in the meantime, I wanted to answer this ask because I think it’s important. Basically…

1. I’m a big believer in reclaiming the things the heteropatriarchy uses to marginalise us. I mean, that’s part of why I made this blog in the first place.

2. My personal politics tend to be more similar to the radical queer movement than mainstream LGBT politics.

3. It’s also my personal identity. I mean, I also identify as bisexual and pansexual, but queer just fits me better. Without getting too purple with my prose, queer identity feels like home for me. Mind, that’s just my personal feeling. I’m not suggesting that should be true for everyone.

4. Aside from the fact that it is still used as a slur, it’s actually quite a good umbrella term. This is especially true for characters who are in period pieces where the concept of sexual identity (as an identity) doesn’t really exist (i.e. Micheletto in the Borgias).

I understand not everyone is comfortable with that term, though. And I’m not going to argue with someone who says something like, “Oh Micheletto isn’t queer; he’s multisexual.” Like, I understand why some folks are adverse to the word queer. But it is a word I use and a word I’ll continue to use.

bless them for letting baby girl keep her heritage

I peep them braids and that dress

I was just thinking this. She actually takes the children back to visit their family in their home country and they study about their own cultures. She isn’t one of those white people trying to assimilate her non-white children. 

She doesn’t use her kids as props and accessories, and she loves and cherishes them all equally it looks like.

Not to mention how she lets John (Shiloh prefers to be called John) dress and act how they like

Also, I’m pretty sure her wedding dress has her kids’ drawings on it, which is just unbelievably adorable.

it does have her kids drawings on it, they also helped to write the vows and Maddox the eldest boy made the cake with his friends, which is probably why he looks so nervous in the picture of them cutting it.

Every single thing I hear about this wedding makes me so happy even though they’re complete strangers to me because it just seems so joyful.
