    I cannot believe Curvy Kate’s audacity to outright steal the work of a high school student for some insipid marketing message.

    Shame on you, Curvy Kate. Shame on you.

    THEY COMPLETELY RUINED HER MESSAGE AND TURNED IT UPSIDE DOWN. WHAT THE FUCK. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK I’M SO FUCKING MAD

    I saw another reiteration of this image recently too but I can’t remember where.

    In this town we literally get what we pay for. It’s been wonderful screening this film across the country, but now it’s time to show some box office love. Don’t do it just for me. Buy a ticket for Dear White People if you want the culture to represent the complexity of the people it entertains and informs. Buy a ticket because you care about seeing nuanced characters of color on the big screen. Do it because the art house could use some color. Do it because one serious movie per awards season and a couple romantic comedies isn’t enough to do our experiences justice. Do it because everyone who worked on this film poured their hearts and souls into crafting something outside the box. Outside the industry formula for getting folks in “niche audiences” to cough up cash for the same tropes and stories. Do it cause Rolling Stone said we’re the shit! Just do it. Chances are you’ll dig the movie, and even you don’t you’ll be helping to open the door for the next kid who’ll do it better. Love ya’ll!

    Cosmetics companies = billions and billions of dollars of profits for men from the pockets of women.

    Feminist Theory would not exist had it not been for radical Black women (particularly Black Lesbians). Audre Lorde, bell hooks, Angela Davis, Barbara Smith, Kimberle Crenshaw, Flo Kennedy, Alice Walker, Patricia Hill Collins, Dorothy Roberts, Shirley Chisholm, etc. Never fucking forget that.

    Nancy Wake, who has died in London just before her 99th birthday, was a New Zealander brought up in Australia. She became a nurse, a journalist who interviewed Adolf Hitler, a wealthy French socialite, a British agent and a French resistance leader. She led 7,000 guerrilla fighters in battles against the Nazis in the northern Auvergne, just before the D-Day landings in 1944. On one occasion, she strangled an SS sentry with her bare hands. On another, she cycled 500 miles to replace lost codes. In June 1944, she led her fighters in an attack on the Gestapo headquarters at Montlucon in central France.

    Ms Wake was furious the TV series [later made about her life] suggested she had had a love affair with one of her fellow fighters. She was too busy killing Nazis for amorous entanglements, she said.

    Nancy recalled later in life that her parachute had snagged in a tree. The French resistance fighter who freed her said he wished all trees bore “such beautiful fruit.” Nancy retorted: “Don’t give me that French shit.”
