Yo I'm Ember and this is pretty much my blog where I reblog stuff that's funny and be a general doofus on the internet. I'm hoping that in the near future I can start taking myself more seriously.

I thought I’d make a post summarizing Taylor Swifts video “Shake It Off” for the people who don’t want to give her more hate views on VEVO. Maybe instead of giving her 4,000 angry views on youtube we can just give her my one view and reblog this hella so no one else watches it out of irritable curiosity? 

Anyways the video is basically just her dancing singing an anthem that every White person appropriating another culture says, “The haters gonna hate.” There’s no real content or plot to the video, just a lot of dance shots where she’s being really awkward. It’s actually amazing how someone could really pretend to be so innocent and naive yet still convey a very harmful message.

Above I posted some screen caps of the video and after only watching it once I got all I needed to know.  Already from the beginning of the video you see a hard clash between the dancers. There are the prima ballerina types who are all white women, elegantly leaping and stretching and dancing. Then there are the faceless black women who are shaking their asses. Yes, faceless, literally every shot of the “twerkers” are only their asses. There’s also other groups of dancers which include some break dancers (which are all brown men,) and contemporary dancers (which is a group of white people and one girl with an afro.) Oh, yes, I forgot the cheerleading group which was all white cheerleaders and one black girl in the back. I just find it hard to believe that they couldn’t have a solid mixed group of people in each category. She pulled a Miley and Iggy and probably said something like “Well I want a more urban feel! But keep the safe ballerinas white!!” Literally the only group that had a saturation of black women was the twerking group. She even had them squat and shake their asses while she crawled through their legs! So edgy! So urban!

This is the problem I have with Taylor Swift. She’s always trying to convey herself as the innocent one who is “man worthy” (as if being man worthy is even important) while slut shaming other women for being sexual, or even just dressing in “short skirts” and “high heels.” All of the sudden now she wants to say, “To hell with the haters I can have as many problematic exes as I want! Now I’m going to be single and edgy! I’m going to shake it off! And to be single and edgy and sexual I have to dance with a bunch of ass shaking black women!  USE A BUNCH OF BLACK WOMEN AS PROPS

Long story story, Taylor Swift is not only a slut shaming misogynist, she’s ignorant and has obviously racist/stereotypical views of brown and black people.

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

This is an important message on how privilege really works.

it’s good to remember that we shouldn’t only define ourselves by our marginalized identities. for example I am cis, I am middle class, I am educated, I speak English, I am a documented citizen—remember all of those identities you possess that give you privilege.

Always check your privilege. Everyone has one in some way

the black lady is me, my exact expression

remember when this asshole compared being discriminated against for being black to having to clean up your look (aka cut off long hair)

If I remember correctly, the white lady is also the same woman in the video who during break, when they thought they weren’t being filmed, admitted that she was surprised that black and white people are both red on the inside. Like, she’s a school teacher and one day one of her black students fell down and scraped her hand and started bleeding, the woman was telling another white woman that she was “shocked” and “surprised” because she didn’t think black people were pink/red on the inside too.

When I saw that I was like, “Damn, so the whole thing in America about ‘we all bleed red’ being stupid is still more advanced than this English woman’s understanding of racism.”

deviantfemme:

I want support for ugly girls and lazy girls and girls that can’t ever get their eyeliner right. I want feminism that includes girls who are too big or too black to be on body positive blogs. 

I want girls with acne scars and girls who don’t “pass” and girls with facial hair. I want girls who are, in fact, man hating lesbians. I want poor girls.

I need the girls who never took a course in gender studies but who still know the way that society treats them is bullshit. 

It doesn’t feel like a revolution when we’re only showing more of the same, when we only raise up the voices of some women.

I need to do better. We all need to do better.

[Designing Women]

I hated the in game design of Jensen in DE:HR, the way the camera worked he ended up looking like a black brick with sunglasses most of the time, rather than a sleek cyber organic design like you see in some of the promo art. I also thought is was kind of a cop out or significantly missed opportunity that most of Jensen’s augmentations were so easily hidden, as opposed to the Russian who had this goat-like appearance to her legs that made her immediately identifiable as an Aug. In the story, Jensen is augmented against his will, and the visual reminder of this in the game would have had a much more profound psychological impact on me as a player, that he was forced to not only be less human, but also look less human to everyone he met.

Well, he does have sunglasses embedded in his face. That’s distinctly inhuman. Heh.

I totally agree about the brick thing though, his proportions are kind of awkward. The characters in general are stylized in a way that doesn’t work for me 100% of the time.

Poor Pritchard.

windycarnage:

also people should keep in mind that sometimes when an artist says “doodle" what they mean is "stress-free art”. that doesn’t necessarily mean that the “doodle” they made is something that they didn’t work hard at or didn’t spend a long time on. some people get really out of control when they see impressive works and the artist write “just a doodle” and they think, this is it, this is the end, im no longer going to be an artist, how can i possibly compare myself.

sometimes “just a doodle” means “not working on commissions or something work-based”, so don’t fret yourselves. plus not everyone who posts art plans on a bunch of people seeing it. you don’t really expect your stupid poorly written artist caption to be seen by a lot of people via reblogs,

So I get Dragon Age II, pining to play some of it. I take it home, put it in my 360 and the fucking thing falls off my shelf and scratches the disc making it unreadable. 

I JUST GOT IT YOU USELESS BRICK.
