Lately, feminists like Annie Lennox, bell hooks and Emma Watson have taken issue with Beyoncé’s sexual openness. While trying to discredit Beyoncé as a feminist, they seem to have forgotten one of the most important parts of Chimamanda’s speech in ***Flawless.

"What does a lady dress like, exactly? And who decided what a lady looks like? What bearing should one’s clothing have on one’s identification as a feminist? This is exactly the kind of misogynist policing we’ve fought tooth and claw against for decades, and to level this line of “reasoning” at Beyoncé is not only antifeminist, it is despicable." (x)

Sometimes this really seems to shock people. They appear genuinely upset when I say ‘this conversation is over’ or ‘I’m actually not interested in debating this with you.’ There’s an expectation that if you care about social justice and political issues, you’re always ‘on.’ You’re always ready to debate, you’re always ready to have theoretical discussions about your own lived experiences and the issues you care about, you’re always ready to defend yourself. That’s manifestly ridiculous and unjust, an expectation that’s simply not reasonable.

"I don’t want to talk about this with you," is a surefire way to cause aneurysms too.

I’ve broken this out a couple times and each time the person has refused to stop talking about it. They talk at me until i respond.

Rita Hayworth

—Put The Blame On Mame - Acoustic Version

rogersandastaire:

While it is well-known that in Gilda Rita Hayworth’s voice was dubbed by singer Anita Ellis for the major musical numbers, it must be noted that Hayworth’s own voice, as well as guitar-playing, can be heard in the film as Gilda reprises the song “Put the Blame on Mame” while sitting at the casino bar.

is now a bad time to talk about how sex trafficking exploded in eastern europe after the collapse of the USSR since a huge amount of women were instantly out of food/shelter/work or is that inconvenient for liberal feminism

“I think that… maybe the problem is… I mean, I don’t have any regrets whatsoever, because any regret would mean that I wish that I hadn’t done the series [“The X-Files”] or had Piper [her first child], but I guess if I were able to talk to my younger self, I might have wished for a little bit more consciousness. And I wish I had known that I had choice. Not choice in terms of whether or not I had the baby. I just think there were a few times in my life when I could have said no, or I could have stepped back. But I always just went whichever way the wind blew me.”
