And then i realized that I should really think about how I’m obtaining all these deep meaningsingful messages from children films.
lets play a game called ‘find a shade that would suitably match an African American or any person of any color different than white’. Very tired of white washing.
while there’s obviously a couple of shades for POC up here. there’s so so so so much whiteness. no one needs to wear make-up but anyone who wants to should have the option.
And even those that would work for POC are still on the light end.
Another thing I’ve noticed, which might be a microaggression, is that a lot of the darker skintones have food related names. The lighter shades will be stuff like beige, ivory, and nude (don’t get me started on the word nude), but the darker shades will be honey, chocolate, cocoa, caramel, etc.
If I wanted a caramel machiatto, I’d have just gone to Starbucks.
Sorry but I lol’ed, and you are very correct. Our shades usually have some sort of food attached to them, its annoying. They can take the time to find all these different names for beige but they can’t come up with a few names for brown?! Like maybe sienna, sepia, mahogany, bronze, sable…we come in a variety of brown shades and there are many ways to describe our skin tone without calling us chocolate or cafe au lait.
The drugstore is pretty much 50 Shades of Beige…
None of this drugstore shit is WHITE. It completely ignores all of us who are whiter than fresh snow. Don’t even get me started.
Drugstore makeup just sucks ass for everyone who isn’t in that specific color range.
I ragequit foundation.
Nope. You’re complaining about something completely different. They don’t have your exact shade but at least they try for you. My colour is not even on the colour chart. This whole industry caters to you, stop derailing this discussion. Shut up white women!
clusterfuck of retarded downsyndrome tumblrist arguing about something irrelevent.
I’m still mad.
One time in class we were looking at world press pictures and a pic of a dark skinned men with scars like this appeared and everyone was like awww the poor men why did they do this to him? etc..
So i told them those are tribal marks, people (especially from Yoruba and Hausaare in Nigeria) are given these marks at birth or other rituals.
Than the entire class (plus my wannabe history teacher) laughed at me telling me im cray and that those are obv scars of abuse or something
they clearly are marks of abuse, as you said they are given to them at birth, and last what looks like their entire life. so yeah I’d call that abuse.
smh people havin sex before losing their virginity….
I too am amazed by that, How is it even possible to have sex before losing your virginity?
Well then just fucking kill yourself. You are the one choosing to hurt yourself, no one is is making you do it. That’s like saying being fat is a medical problem, just stop eating so goddamn much and get some fucking exercise. As for the factors that cause it, aside from retardation i really can’t think of any. Then again stupid people do stupid shit, I know I do. I just wouldn’t be stupid enough to harm myself and then blame it on others, and then go outside like a fucking retard and show everyone how lonely and sad i am.
female logic is just repugnant.
The girl wrote this on Facebook: ”I went to the beach the other day, for the first time since I was a child, I didn’t wear shorts or anything to cover up, this is a massive deal for me, I hate my body even without the scars, I believe I am fat and disgusting but, I pushed through the major anxiety, shaking and almost crying and made it to the water. Its a big deal, I did it.
This took a whole fucking lot of courage to post..”
And now this dickhead comments this. I can’t, i really can’t Facebook.
See this is what is wrong with humanity. This girl is mentally injured, But she takes a step towards better times. She tries to get back. She even go to the beach, only wearing a minimalistic piece of clothe. She convinces her biggest fear, the fear of people laughing at her. And she’s even more brave. Afterwords she posts this remarkable photo on Facebook. It maybe took her minutes to post this. Sitting there by her computer, with her finger on the mouse. Should she press ”Upload” or not?”
And she did it. She was brave enough to do it.
And then this is what she gets. A hate comment. And there was of course more comments than that. And if that isn’t enough, that comment up there, got 5 likes. 5 LIKES. People agree with that terrible person?
My faith in humanity is almost gone now. I want to show this girl, that i’m with her. I’m a supporter.
yo this pisses me off real bad people are awful
People who don’t understand and say mean things make me wonder how in the fuck they became such a nasty creature. HOW DO YOU EVEN GET THAT MEAN? I CANNOT WRAP MY HEAD AROUND THIS.
Wow! Fuck FB and fuck people!
Constantly afraid to show my arms.
What idiots actually think.
She is in fact an attention whore and should simply stop cutting herself, because no one is making her.
the movie was excellent, well written and flowed great. Without any spoilers it is definitely a must see movie of the summer. Can’t wait to buy the DVD.
