Anonymous said: Let me get this straight, Nicki Minaj can wiggle her butt six ways till Sunday and people can call her a black feminist messiah, but when there's a weak-ass Spider-Woman variant cover that make her look like she's posing like Nicki Minaj, it suddenly NOT okay and Marvel should be ashamed??? I'm honestly, seriously confused here :/
Nicki Minaj is also a real person who makes real decisions for herself and made a video and song that celebrated her own body and her own sexuality while outright critiquing the Male Gaze through visual metaphor
Jessica Drew is not a real person and was drawn by a man in a submissive position who visually objectifies her (spandex doesn’t work on asses like that come on) and every female superhero he’s drawn. And he can’t even draw a background right.
repeat it with me now everybody: made up women drawn for gross men to jerk off to are NOT equivalent to real life women expressing their sexuality for their own benefit

On September 11th 1973, US-backed General Pinochet overthrew the democratically elected leader of Chile, Salvadore Allende. Pinochet ordered an air strike on the Presidential Palace, labor activists and famous folk guitarists were rounded up for torture, disappeared, and killed. Pinochet converted the national football stadium into a detention facility like Guantanamo Bay. Chile’s economy was turned into a plantation for the 1%, as inequality and poverty skyrocketed under the imposed Milton Friedman-style economic model.
Over 40,000 Chileans became victims of Pinochet’s terror. In response, the Nixon administration committed more money, more training, more torture equipment.
The world didn’t begin on September 11th, 2001. Rather, for the first time in modern history, Americans were visited by the same violence the US has imposed since its creation. In Chile, the US murdered tens of thousands and impoverished millions. This wasn’t America’s first foray in international terrorism, nor would it be the last. The United States security state is a terrorist and a plague on the people of the world. Spread the word.
this literally has 45 notes. i feel sick.
as someone who grew up hearing about Pinochet im honestly shocked that others don’t talk about this more.
I don’t care if he was smoking a doobie a mile long, it wasn’t a shooting offense. Stealing cigars, if true, wasn’t a shooting offense. He could have been letting air out of the tires of the chief’s fucking tires and it still wouldn’t be a shooting offense, you know why? THERE IS NO CRIME IN THIS COUNTRY THAT IS A SHOOTING OFFENSE. Even if he’d been jailed, arraigned, gone through all the procedures of court for felony murder in a death penalty state, been found guilty and exhausted all of his appeals, no one could shoot him. As it was, he was walking down the street.
Walking. Because that’s what dangerous guilty horrible criminal persons do in this country, friends and neighbors, they walk down the street, ignoring the police officer in such a perverse, vicious, and heinous manner that the police officer, protecting and serving his tightly gripped ass off, shoots him. Multiple times. Because everyone knows the white policeman would never just plain haul off and shoot an innocent man in these United Racist States.
I hate this. There will never be justice here. Never.
British people will go ahead and generalize Asian accents as if it’s one thing but you slip up and say British accent instead of “English accent” and all hell breaks loose.
there is a spider SOMEWHERE in my bathroom and it’s huge and horrible and awful and I just can’t
don’t be a little shit to me on tinder
this is beautiful
bless your soul
I’ve been away all weekend so haven’t been able to upload daily selfies. This isn’t one, just one to show you the absolutely adorable friend I made at the annual sheep round-up in my mum’s old county! It was super awesome and I got to spend the rest of the weekend with a childhood friend and her adorable kid, playing games and eating food in her family’s summerhouse.
Feel exhausted but refreshed now, and have loooaaaads of photos to work on from the weekend! ^___^
