She pointed out the sexism in video games, so men threatened her until she fled her home

On Monday, Anita Sarkeesian posted a segment titled “Women as Background Decoration.” It examined how gratuitous sexual abuse and violence permeates contemporary video games. By the next day, she had received so many violent threats that she had to flee her home. And these weren’t idle Internet threats — some contained accurate identifying information about Sarkeesian’s home and family, enough for law enforcement to get involved.

But she’s not wrong | Follow @micdotcom

I do wanna see more trans actors playing trans roles because trans people need jobs, you know? And also because the industry is not ready to hire trans people to play cisgendered characters, and that’s where I’d like to see us get to—to where being trans doesn’t matter. You know, I’ve always thought, OK, there could be a trans person on Grey’s Anatomy playing a nurse or a doctor. I know trans people who are doctors and nurses; I know tons of people who are lawyers, and they can be trans, but it doesn’t have to be the central thing. Some people are trans and it doesn’t envelop their entire lives.

Everything Beyonce does is careful and thought out. Her entire image is perfection crafted from planning ahead. She does not ‘wing it’ or throw things into her performances and public appearances ‘just because’.

What she did at this award show was amazing, especially because of how intentional and thought out it clearly was.

Feminism is a scary word for a lot of people. Many women are afraid of calling themselves feminist because they think it implies anger, hatred of men, or a rejection of traditional femininity. 

Beyonce presented everyone watching with two distinct images of what many viewers viewed as two very different women. There is the strong, independent FEMINIST. She is the woman who likes being in control and being in the spotlight. Then there is the WIFE and MOTHER. She is soft, sweet, smiling at the husband and child you can tell she loves and values so much.

For every girl watching who was afraid to be a feminist, afraid to be powerful, because of what she thought she would lose, this is an incredible message. You can be all the things you want to be. You can be both. Feminists can have amazing happy, full lives full of both traditional and modern womanhood. 

Feminism means gender should not be a source of persecution or a restriction of your choices. Feminism mean the type of person you should be is based on what you value, not what outside forces pressure you to value because of your gender or biological sex. Shout at the top of your lungs that you are a feminist and proud. Then go and be the exact person that you want to be.

It’s Bigger Than Blue Ivy

As someone who was raised on Just For Me (for none black folx thats a type of perm targeted at young black girls), It has been a process that will forever be continuing, to love my hair and deconstruct white standards of beauty.  This is why it’s bigger than just Blue Ivy, this is about anti-black-womanness.

For the first time in a long while both black women and little girls are feeling empowered enough wear their hair as is and put away the creamy crack. With Solange Knowles being one of the first major black celebs to make the intentionality and reasons publicly known behind why she was no longer perming her hair, you would think it would come to no surprise that her niece would then follow suit.  


But we’re talking about Blue Ivy though, and her mom just happens to be Beyonce, and for both blacks and non blacks she represents the epitome of what black beauty is supposed to look like. Long flowing blonde hair, curvy in all the right places, light colored eyes, and light skin, she’s the black Barbie doll.  This incredibly white supremacist standard of beauty, is one that not even her daughter can hold up to.

See it’s a double edge sword, and like most things for black people in this country you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. If Beyonce were to begin wearing her hair natural and leave the wigs and weaves alone, she would be faced with the same backlash as her daughter because she will no longer be easily digestible for white Americans. On the other hand, if Beyonce didn’t assimilate so well into white standards of beauty we wouldn’t be sitting here talking about her daughters hair.

The issue here isn’t that Beyonce doesn’t wear her hair natural; the issue here, and always is White Supremacy and Anti-blackness. We are all forced into assimilation by some way or another in this society. Black women’s hair whether we wear it natural or in weaves will never be good enough, our bodies will never be the right body type, our voices and words will never carry the right tone – we will never be white, and for that we will never be the right.

The reality is, white supremacy depends on the insecurity and destruction of black women.

Unfortunately for white supremacy, we are indestructible.

thewingedoctopus and I saw a lot of potential hints in this poster, so we compiled a post about them!
General character observations:
Angela has three breasts, while if you look closely, Evan has ectrodactyly, or “lobster hands.”
There’s also a shadow coming from outside of the tent. The last time there was a shadow in an American Horror Story poster it was Thredson, so that shadow is most likely the killer of the season.
There are also two men having a picnic in the background, and there’s definitely something strange about them, though we can’t place it.
Placement of characters and alignments:
The general placement of characters could potentially show which alignments they’ll have.
At first glance, it looks like Michael and Evan are just holding up the plank. But when you look closer, you’ll see that the opening of the tent forms a fulcrum and the plank becomes a balanced seesaw. On the left side of the seesaw are Denis, Kathy, and Michael. On the ride side are Angela, Franny, and Evan. These people are likely to be allies in the show. (This also makes sense because Kathy wouldn’t like Angela because Kathy is Michael’s ex-wife and Angela married Michael.)
However, Sarah is above all of this, with Bette and Dot pointing to opposite sides of the seesaw. This may be a sign that Bette and Dot are going to be fighting for opposite sides.
Sarah’s position is also reminiscent of the sword of Damocles. Like the sword hanging from a fringed rope above Damocles’ head, Sarah is hanging on a fringed rope. (Given that Sarah is also high up, she may die of a falling accident.)
The characters are placed on levels of one, four, and three, but we’re not sure what that means.
Character predictions:
Jess’ arms are hidden, which could mean that something will happen to her arms. Her boa is also wrapped around Michael, which could mean that she either kills him (strangling?) or he’s engaged in an affair with her.
Hands being hidden may also be a sign of ulterior motives. Jess, Denis, and Franny are all hiding their hands in different ways. Jess and Denis are holding their hands behind their back while Franny’s are gloved and she’s holding them nervously. 
Gloves may be indicative of more guilt, given that gloves are associated with hiding fingerprints, and (along with her nervous gesture) that may point to Franny being the clown killer. This doesn’t interfere with the shadow outside, either, because we aren’t meant to know Franny is the killer.
Hints in color scheme:
We’re not sure what exactly these colors mean, but there are similarities that are too strange to be overlooked.
Michael and Angela switched belts
Sarah, Evan, and Franny have the same color scheme
Angela and Jess have the same color scheme
Michael, Kathy, and Denis have the same color scheme
Kathy and Sarah are both wearing headbands, while Fran and Jess both have bows/flowers though that doesn’t HAVE to mean anything
Angela has different colored beads, which may indicate her being in two different factions? We’re not sure if this one is just a costume decision or a hint
The patterns behind the two girls balancing (forming the pillars) overlap their legs
Thoughts? Theories?

Just remembered this and died inside with laughter again. Seriously, if you’ve not seen it, some wonderful person has changed the music on the Man from Another Place dancing and it is ridiculously hilarious. He don’t want no scrubs.
