you honestly need to find some fucking sense
Cate Blanchett’s acceptance speech may have read feminist, and her wording was beautiful. Except of course her thanking of Woody Allen (whose adopted daughter Dylan Farrow has come out publicly about her abuse at the hand of her proto-father) and intentional framing of him as a feminist film maker, that everyone seems so fast to ignore in congratulating her for ‘calling out the Academy.’
Blue Jasmine saw no other nominations or awards for a reason, and her acting deserved all it won, but Cate Blanchett chose to reinforce an industry that values male filmmakers and celebrities like Woody Allen over the children and young women they abuse and violate. That doesn’t sound very feminist to me.
Popstars and their struggles
I feel like this is really important.
Also other celebrities,
Miley Cyrus - Bullied at school.
Mary J Blige - Raped and sexually abused, drug addiction, alcoholism, depression, abusive relationship
Azalea Banks - Abusive mother
Jim Carrey - Homeless at a young age
Oprah Winfrey - Sexually abused alcoholism, drug addiction
50 cent - Born to a 15 year old drug dealing mother who was murdered when he was 8, started drug dealing at 11, carried gun and drugs with him to school at 12, was later shot 9 times at close range.
Demi Moore - Born to an 18 year old alcoholic, bipolar mother, grew up seeing her mother and step-father abuse eachother.
Christina Aguilera - She, her mother and sister were subject to her abusive father, bullied at school.
Friendly reminder: celebrities are people, not fucking objects for you to constantly judge.
girls aren’t “easy”, girls don’t have difficulty levels. some girls like sex and some girls don’t. you aren’t winning anything by getting either of them to sleep with you.
Some girls only want sex after emotional closeness develops, but to call this “difficulty” says some really disturbing shit about what you think emotional closeness is for.
But you walked out on your drug addicted husband so, are you really “winning” Khloe?
What the fuck? Yes she’s winning; she walked out on her drug addicted husband who turned away her support and continued to abuse his relationship with her by continuing his irresponsible behavior and entertaining his drug habit instead of accepting the endless help offered to him.
Khloe is not responsible for his habits, nor is she for his behaviors, nor the fact that he cheated on her. She has endless love for that man but, at some point or another, a person has to look out for themselves.
Being with Lamar was hurting her more than it was doing anything else—especially knowing that her being there for him wasn’t changing his decisions about how to carry on his life. Her presence didn’t really seem to make him a better person when he decided to hook up with his awful friends, cheat on her, and dabble in drugs.
So, yes, this bitch is winning because she took her broken ass heart and demolished trust and was like, “Fuck this, I love you Lamar, but I deserve better. I love you and I will always be there for you, but I will not be your wife, I will not be your romantic partner.”
Khloe is strength and power and resilience so fucking check yourself before you go implying blame on her for his actions.
“Pro-life guys get a hard time, but there are good reasons to be pro-life. For example, you might fear women or hate women or be dumb as a rock. The thing about anti-abortionists is that they’re generally a fairly compelling argument for abortion.”
Frankie Boyle, “Scotland’s Jesus” (via eflind)
While being angry is a valid emotional response:
- Anger is not a free pass to do whatever you want.
- Anger is not an excuse for damaging, or abusive behavior.
- Anger is not protection from repercussions of that behavior.
You are accountable for what you do, even while angry.
SO DAMN IMPORTANT
