Audrey says “fuck your gender roles”

This movie is super underrated.

Audrey is so underrated. How can you not love her?

I have a love-hate relationship with this movie.
On one hand it’s got awesome PoC characters who defy racial and gender stereotypes. It also discusses colonialism and how people tend to destroy indigenous cultures to obtain land and resources (which is why the crew ultimately decided a to pretend they never found Atlantis because they don’t want anyone else to try and destroy the culture).
But on the other hand, the whole plot is that Atlantis needs a white, cishet man to save it from extinction and for some reason he understand their culture and language better than they do.

hEY FUCK YOU OKAY
MILO WAS THE ANTITHESIS OF WHITE SAVIOR
HE WAS A NERDY USELESS LITTLE SHIT WHO WAS COWARDLY UNTIL OTHERS FORCED HIM TO ACT
HIS ONLY STRENGTHS WERE HIS MIND AND HIS ETHICS
HE WAS THE PERFECT DUDE FOR THE JOB AND THE REASON HE KNEW BETTER WAS BECAUSE HE RIGOROUSLY STUDIED TEXTS THAT HAD BEEN LOST OR DESTROYED IN ATLANTIS BECAUSE KIDA’S FATHER INTENTIONALLY LET HIS KINGDOM LAPSE INTO DECAY AND OBSCURITY

DO NOT PULL THAT WHITE SAVIOUR BULLSHIT BECAUSE MILO WAS A DAMN GOOD DUDE

Milo being the epitome of the White Savior trope doesn’t make Milo a bad person
It makes the writer a bad person

Stressed out…Need to figure out a way to relax

I’m going to rant a bit: One: I’m pregnant and everything seems 1000 times worst then it did before I was pregnant. It’s like someone turn up my anxiety levels with a flip of a switch. The baby is only 12 weeks away from being here I am 0% ready for it. Two: Being alone right now is harder then it was for me before I got pregnant as well. I used to love to be alone and even sometime prefer to be alone, but right now I’m on edge and I can’t wait for David to be home from Bad River. I also find it harder to cook just for one person, I’m like what do I eat? I swear if this baby wasn’t in me I would be living off of caned corn. Three: This fucking apartment of mine is killing me the landlord is a piece of shit human. We had the roof of our bathroom fall in a few weeks ago fucking up everything in the all ready not working bathroom. They come and “fix” the massive whole by just propping up more drywall, the apartment above me is still leaking and making mold every fucking place. From the massive hole came the mice, I have already killed 6 of them. Then you have the bugs the roaches and bed bugs. You are most likely reading this and I guessing you are thinking they must be dirty people. No we are not we wash and bleach everything all the fucking time, on top of that we have used every trap and spray out there. Only to find out that other people in the building are having the same issues. This add to the baby stress. I don’t want to bring the baby in here, so that means finding a new place in two months time.

No one should ever think you are unclean. I miss you and David, and I am so proud of the family you are. I’m sorry you are feeling alone right now babe <3 in a few weeks you will see this beautiful baby, and I am so jealous. Maybe try corn salad? Can you eat corn while pregnant? 

If you can, just drop some black beans with some canned corn, some salsa and avocados. Cold, will help with the heat, and healthy.

Can y’all stay at the AIC for a bit so that the mold doesn’t make you sick? Let me know if you need anything bae, y’all are the strongest people I know, and deserve strong community <3

Just know that even though I’m across the nation, all three of you are in my nightly prayers <3

Let’s talk about men who send woman unsolicited pictures of their penis.  I don’t believe that any man does this and thinks to themselves, “wow, she’s going to see this picture of my amazing dick and totally want to have sex with me.”  

Men send woman unsolicited pictures of their penis because they get a wicked little thrill out of violating women.  It’s a form of non-consensual sexual aggression, and it’s fucked up.  

and whether or not they expect to get sex out of it they don’t expect the woman to impose negative consequences because they’re accustomed to doing what they want without repercussions

like, I honestly think some dudes send dick pics because they enjoy violating women and they think they’ll get laid (maybe not because of it, but despite it, like because they’re dudes and it’s never occurred to them that women might not give them what they want even if they do fucked-up shit)

this kind of ties in to what I was saying earlier about women being told they have to make a huge effort to “get” a man and they need to put up with whatever crap they pull because they won’t find anything better

like I was just reading somewhere this story about a woman on a blind date that seemed to be going really well, he was charming and friendly and interesting and shit, and then he sent her a dick pic apparently because he thought it’d seal the deal

and she told him she didn’t like that he’d done that, but she also stayed and finished up the date because maybe she was overreacting and he did seem like a cool guy besides that and anyway if she tried to leave he might make a scene

like, this is how much we’re taught to question ourselves

This ‘personal space’ dress could solve all your public transportation woes.

CREDIT THE INVENTOR: SHE IS AN ARTIST NAMED KATHLEEN MCDERMOTT WHO IS FINISHING HER MFA IN HONG KONG

Also she is developing this technology literally to help women assert their space in public AND MAKE A STATEMENT about how women are treated in patriarchal societies! She is developing other clothes too! You can support her project here: http://www.kthartic.com/index.php?/class/about-urban-armor/

More info:

The dress is the second in a series of projects called Urban Armor, which aim to help women own their space in public arenas that often attempt to deny this right. As McDermott explains in the project statement: “The series arose partly out of my concern over the persistence of ideologies asserted at women in public space through advertising, architecture and socially normative behavior. I began to look for ways women could take more ownership over their personal space in public.”

Basically this woman is a badass artist. Please support her work and spread the word

"The reason women are turning you down for casual sex seems to be that, for one thing, a lot of you are calling them sluts afterward. Also, a lot of you aren’t bothering to try to be good in bed."

Terri Conley, professor of psychology and women’s studies at the University of Michigan ( link )

welp.
