well fuck ellen for joinin in the anti-black, anti-rap crusade. bitch, is you callin for white rockers to talk to you nice? have you heard socially conscious rappers? no, right? ok. white woman lauce #94875984768745786854.
I really want to know what people hear when they listen to a lot of rock or pop lyrics, because the only difference is the bass & the beat. Country music is full of violence & misogyny too for that matter.
This is hella late but Franklin Turtle from the kids show Franklin is an asshole. He pisses me off so much. Just put the fucking fort away you douche! GAH!
Wait… Franklin still comes on? You seem really upset. lol
Yeah he comes on at like 5am on Nick Jr. He took Maggie and the Feroucious Beasts spot. I am a bit upset. I feel like that show teaches kids to be assholes and that bothers me. And no one is a parent in that shit and says HEY FRANKLIN SHUT UP FOR I WHOOP YOUR ASS.
I know I need help but watch the show and tell me that him and his friends don’t suck.
Surely In a post feminist society, we should abolish rap music. It’s racist and sexist.
it’s a good thing you’re open to being corrected if you’re wrong, because
A) we’re not a post-feminist society, assuming we hail from the same society, especially because
B) Feminism deals with internalized racism, which is pertinent since
C) your statement in itself is probably racist since rap is predominantly a black music genre and this fact has surely not escaped your observation. It would appear that
D) you have bought into the white-culture myth that ALL rap music- ALL of it- is 100% the same. That all of it is racist (how, anyway, is that true even sometimes? Because less white people are involved than in every other industry where they dominate, it must be racist?), all of it is sexist, even though
E) you would never say that about an entire genre of music where white people are the majority of performers. You will never- unless in jest because I am saying it now- see a post on tumblr that says simply, “Correct me if I’m wrong, but surely we should abolish rock music because it is sexist and racist.” Et cetera. I can only assume that
F) going back to D, you really have never taken the time to talk to anyone about rap, or listened to more than just the songs that make it into the general top 20, which is hardly representative of all rap music. And yet you still felt comfortable making a grandiose statement about an entire musical genre including thousands of different artists, and hundreds of different types of rappers. And yes, it’s true that
G) some rap music- perhaps even a majority- often espouses sexist, gay hating, rape culture supporting, et cetera lyrics, and often has themes and statements that are generally distasteful. But that’s like anything. You’ll find a lot of bad ish in any music genre- or any film genre (Disney!)- or any television genre. But that doesn’t mean there is an issue with
rap music, in general. Sometimes it is bad. Sometimes it is empowering. Sometimes it is offensive- and sometimes it is beautiful.
“So, I don’t think Mercedes particularly owed him her vote because he was her “best friend.” The writers completely screwed that friendship up, I’m not seeing how Alex’s character will even know to go to the two of them for advice in the back half much less be their “love child” since that would require them to surgically remove Kurt from Rachel’s ass and remember that he has friends other than Finn and Blaine. I mean, Rachel pretty much spent most of this season so far destroying Kurt’s chances for NYADA, first screwing up his second audition (well, making it worse by laughing in his face and proving the directors’ point), then by running against him in the election, then by being a complete idiot and over stuffing the damn ballots, and yet everyone’s all “ooooh hummelberry, you’re awesome”, when really, it’s kinda a horrible friendship. A real friend would have reminded Kurt that he wanted to run a clean campaign, and that even if he lost that way, he’d be able to hold his head up high. Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that, until Finn said something to her, Rachel was completely willing to let Kurt take the fall for her stuffing the ballots so she wouldn’t get suspended. What the fuck kind of “best friend” is that? Even in her reasoning for wanting him to go to NY, it’s to give her makeovers and for some other stupid shit that I blocked out.”—
Let’s just forget that you and Kurt were bestfriends and did everything together. But you’re just gonna vote for him becasue you don’t want to hear all about Brittany winning? I lost all respect for you.
LOL and where has Kurt been? Friendship is a two-way street, and Mercedes walked it as long as she could even after Kurt dumped her for Blaine, Rachel, and New York. Mercedes always carried the water in that relationship anyway, and she’s still carrying it. Fuck the male gaze. She doesn’t owe him a damn thing.
And you didn’t lose respect, you never had any for Mercedes as a character, obviously. Only what Mercedes could do for Kurt, how could she prop him up. Which is fine, but don’t lie. C’mon now.
The bolded is so accurate and is really the problem with this fandom. They only like Mercedes when she’s fine with being a prop and catering to everyone else’s needs. As soon as she starts to display her own human qualities, though, it’s a problem. Can’t have that.
Kurt dropped her and replaced her with Rachel, yet no one wants to talk about the respect they lost for him. There is no responsibility on his side to actually treat Mercedes well, yet she’s supposed to be falling over herself to support him? Give me a break.
All these people who are making Mercedes out to be a terrible friend to Rachel and Kurt and think the way Rachel and Kurt treat people is a good thing, I honestly wish friends just like Rachel and Kurt on you.
Why is it that I feel like I’m the only person who isn’t blaming one or the other for the fall out of their friendship? I’m blaming both of them. They both should have fought for their friendship, yet neither of them did. Neither of them tried to get their friendship back.
So Kurt’s to blame. So is Mercedes.
So how about people stop hating on two of my favourite characters and stop being biased in the favour of one or the other, and understand when they’re equally to blame.
To be fair, if ever an argument was presented like this, I probably wouldn’t feel the need to jump all over it. But that is exactly the point. This fandom will allow Kurt human characteristics and flaws, but not Mercedes. Most every argument presented about the Kurtcedes friendship falling apart (in fact EVERY one I’ve seen before this one) only looks at what Mercedes did and tries to make her seem like a bad person. No one talks about Kurt, who is equally to blame.
It’s sad that no one can see that neither of them are inheritantly bad people, they’re just characters humans, who make mistakes, and have faults and flaws and weaknesses, like everyone else.
I’ll happily admit to Kurt being in the wrong here too, because it’s the truth. Sadly it’s also true a lot of the fandom is willing to overlook Kurt’s wrong doings (which do exist, guys) and tend to hate on other characters (like Mercedes) when they slip up even the slightest bit. Double standards, people, no one likes them.
Well, I don’t think it was ever an equal friendship in the first place. Mercedes gave a hell of a lot more than what she received from Kurt, and this is why Kurt will get the brunt of the blame for me than Mercedes ever will. I do think Mercedes allowed the drift because she noticed Kurt found people he valued more. I mean, that doesn’t make him bad nor do I dislike him (even if I do have Kurt!fatigue, ngl), but she shouldn’t have to make him a primary focus of her life when it’s very obvious she’d stopped being one as soon as he marched himself into Dalton, probably even before, when they didn’t automatically become each other’s partners in “Duets” thus to set up another Kurt!crush and the “Kurt is so alone, ergo Rachel must swoop in and save the day” storyline. It is what it is, but don’t act like Mercedes didn’t try, even with her various missteps, to keep the relationship going and seemingly all on her own. A prop, his support, and very rarely in return.
THE BOLDED. I can’t think of one time Kurt stepped up, on his own, to be there for her. In “Home” Quinn did it, and actually, Mercedes was really in the position she was in because she was trying to please Kurt. So maybe Kurt and Rachel deserve each other on that score. Rachel is his karma.
“I don’t know why we even say education REFORM. The word reform suggests that we only need to patch a few holes in the system. But, no the entire system is messed up. I don’t understand why people want to reform a system created to destroy people of color and perpetuate privilege and advantages for majority students. Rather than reform we need a REVOLUTION. Shut the schools down and recreate and redefine how we want them to function and serve communities.”—My Cornell Professor, Travis Gosa, in class today! Last day of my education class and he started preaching! (via theangryblackwoman)
“A small church in Pike County, Kentucky has voted to ban interracial couples from most church activities “to promote greater unity among the church body.” Melvin Thompson, former pastor of Gulnare Freewill Baptist church, proposed the ban after Stella Harville brought her fiance, Ticha Chikuni, to services in June. Harville, who goes by the name Suzie, played the piano while Chikuni sang. Before stepping down as pastor in August, Thompson told Harville that her fiance could not sing at the church again. Harville is white and Chikuni, a native of Zimbabwe, is black. Last Sunday, church members voted 9-6 in favor of Thompson’s proposed ban. Others attending the church business meeting declined to take a stand on the issue.”—
Because that’s what Jesus would do, y’all. He totally would say “I can’t do interracial couples, so lets ban them from being a part of the community.” It says so in the book of Idiots. Chapter 17. Verse 4.
“The best ones are the people saying that Mercedes is trying to trap Sam into a relationship, yet they’re wishing their brains out for another shot at Fabrevans, while Quinn is playing the ULTIMATE man-trap by trying to find a guy to knock her up again.”—
“You have nothing to feel ashamed of. I want you to know you didn’t do anything wrong. Please know that you were chosen by a monster. It’s not your fault. You didn’t ask for it and, most of all, you didn’t deserve it.”—Writer-director Tyler Perry • In an open letter, published by The Daily Beast, to an 11-year-old alleged victim in the Jerry Sandusky case. “Do you know that at the young age of 11 you had more courage than all the adults who let you down?” he writes. “All of the ones who didn’t go to the proper authorities, all of the ones who were worried about their careers, reputations, or livelihoods. All of the ones who didn’t want to get involved. Or even the ones who tried to convince your mother not to fight. You are stronger than them all! I wonder what they would have done if it were their own child.” You rock, Tyler. (via shortformblog)
See when i see overweight people getting bullied or even just generally being called fat sometimes it makes me so angry. Not everyone wants to be super skinny, not everyone cares about what guys or girls think of their appearence and not everyone needs to be picked out…

Just paid for my seatbelt ticket online with a 5 dollar processing fee.
The 161 dollars wasn’t enough you needed 5 more bucks.
I’m really pissed at this ticket b/c it’s from a racist ass county and the motherfucker commented on my Obama bumper stickers before issuing it and then proceeds to go on his merry fucking way and doesn’t pull anyone else over.
