Ya'll be like: Black girls with afros are amazing...as long as they got light skin.
Ya'll be like: Black girls are beautiful...but just the ones who are white passin' or as racially ambiguous as possible.
Ya'll be like: Natural hair is the best hair...as long as the curls are really really loose.
Ask companies like Adobe and Fiftythree, and they’ll tell you that tablets are the future of drawing. Give in, and get used to the concept of touching a stylus to your screen. Because as hardware and software get better, you’ll be able to create the sorts of things you can only dream about creating on paper.
Moleskine—the preeminent journal company with no lack of self-interest in keeping paper alive—has presented the vision of another possible future.

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
Here we take our Disney very, very seriously.
Milo was a good character, yes. Milo is also very much the definition of a white savior. The trope’s at play in this movie, regardless of how much you love Milo or how broken your caps lock is, that’s still true.
Of course the narrative has to come up with an excuse for people not to understand their culture as well as a complete outsider, it doesn’t change anything.
"i like this character therefore he can’t be a white savior"
that’s not how it…exactly works…

Oh this is really cool.
All i’m getting from this is that three babies are born every time somebody breaks an iPhone screen
Ok so I didn’t even watch the MTV VMAs but I was on Facebook and came across a buzzfeed article about the moment of silence for Mike Brown at Ferguson and I was shocked at the comments that people posted.
