whit girls are fucking weird

demons.

This is disgusting.

Remember, Charlie Manson’s most enthusiastic and violent followers were white women. So that should tell you plenty about the white female psyche and their penchant for fangirling over violent white males. And these are probably the same white women/girls who clutch their purses and lock their car doors whenever they see a Black person, and support cops and white vigilantes who gun down Black people.

The bold!

this sentence is giving me a migraine 

Iggy’s gonna be the first real superstar female rapper you guys ignore Lauryn and Missy’s grammy’s and critical acclaim ignore Nicki’s platinum albumS and sell out tours and critically acclaimed mixtapes ignore it all, ms crocodile dundee dropped one mediocre 8 track mixtape and did 2 songs that everyone only knows the chorus too SHE’S the one to watch!!! 

The most depressing part of this is that lat month Nicki Minaj actually broke the record for the most appearances as a lead, collaborative, or featured guest artist on the Billboard Hot 100. But nah, forget her, she’s not important, let’s all gush about how successful Iggy Azalea is instead.

Racism in advertising.
This is what we’re told constantly. That our brown skin is ugly and that we can only be beautiful if we’re white.

{These sets are comprised of Rapunzelsannalemon -Rapunzel, Elsa, Anna, Honey Lemon- and two special Disney guests! See if you can guess who!}

  1. I am being completely sarcastic in my awe
  2. None of these categories were made up for the sake of loaded language. Each has been used in at least one sincere/serious instance of justification or defense or denial of Disney design similarities.
  3. All these model carbon copies congruities factor right in to Disney’s lack of visible diversity!

Threw this together for a number of reasons. 

Partially because when confronted with this image (or this one or this one or this one or this one or this one or this one or this one or this one) or any of the comparison shots that show the similarity between Rapunzelsannalemon, defenders of the insipid character design consistently bring up the above features to highlight the perceived distinctiveness, or as examples of “unique” and “distinguished” character design differences between the girls.

But mostly because, for all the honey/strawberry/platinum contrast and various neck widths to be found among these characters, they’re all still scooped from the same puddle in Whitelandia. There are so many other manifestations that could be represented— countless other demographics that Disney keeps tossing aside in favor of revisiting the Nth White royal.

**It’s also worth noting that while criticism of the similarity among Rapunzelsannalemon has been mentioned as a standalone problem, I bring it up as a sub-point re: analyzing the lack of racial diversity in Disney (Princess) films.

"BUT #EYEBROWS" is also a shitty justification because it contributes to the sidelining of the valid concerns of people who are perpetually erased and marginalized in Disney films (specifically the princess line) let alone the media at large. #Eyebrows-Defense contributes to the belittling, ignoring, and trivializing of those concerns. 

White as default is no accidentDesigns have power. Representation is potent, influential, and formative— and who is sidelined is telling. 

Mind you, Disney is (SUPPOSED TO BE/has positioned themselves as) this outstanding inspiring modern paragon of creativity, design, diversity, and innovation. Yet they have tossed so many sameface white girls at us that one of the strongest defenses of recent designs boils down to hair color and nasolabial folds. Ok. 

This is a matter of them being able to knowingly fall back on the same model, the same design, the same type because they know that they are safe in recycling the same White starting point with new hair, or eyes, or eyebrows, or freckle patterns. They know that they will be defended in their choices to the ends of the earth, despite perpetuating an endless status quo reinforcing whitegirl avalanche.

In their own words, Disney is “the global leader in family entertainment”. The have operations in over 40 countries. They are agents of socialization for countless children. The fact that Disney possesses such power and influence (and that they have such a stake in childhoods) is why who they chose to represent and how often is important! 

Disney is failing to represent an overwhelming segment of their audience, and in that sense, they are failing not only their audience at large, but their own core values. Disney can and should do better. 

While you can certainly enjoy Disney and the work it produces (I do, perhaps surprisingly), please consider being more receptive to criticism and analysis, as well. It matters.

"Movies can and do have tremendous influence in shaping young lives in the realm of entertainment towards the ideals and objectives of normal adulthood."

peachtml:

a lot of people don’t know that mcdonalds fries contain beef in them and mcdonalds has been sued a long time ago for this but it’s still happening!!

the company says the “natural flavor” on the fries include beef flavoring

the official ingredients on the mcdonalds website for their french fries specifically says “natural beef flavoring”

art universities are so pretentious tbh why do we have expensive custom textbooks that dont exist anywhere else????????

 >:(

championofnevarra:

If you refuse to understand the difference between changing the concept of a character from white to PoC (giving more representation to a group that is either under-represented or represented in harmful/stereotypical ways) and changing them from PoC to white (actively taking from that group), then I have zero time for you.
