Misha: Hi again!
Me: You remember me from earlier?
Misha: Yeah, I do!
Me: Okay… well, then… when’s the wedding?
Nicki Minaj shining a light on the differences on acceptable sexuality from white women and black women.
While it has a good deal to do with color, it also has to do with the fact of how her sexuality is used.
The women above her could arguably be said to be catering to the sexual needs/wants/fantasies of men (Sports Illustrated is ESPECIALLY known for catering to a male gaze.) While Nicki Minaj has continuously used her sexuality to empower herself. Her sexuality isn’t for men, it’s for her own self. And THAT is a huge problem. Sexuality that isn’t designed for male consumption is deemed unacceptable and threatening. She is powerful, demanding, uncompromising, and men are weak, so that scares them.
And it’s also because she’s of Indian/Black background, no doubt about it. It’s not just racist, it’s also sexist.
#reblog again*Lemongrab voice* UNACCEPTABLE
so here’s a fun story about this movie. guess who loves this movie? me! i do! i love this movie. i love this movie so much that when i was in the 7th grade and i saw “first wives club 2” on pay per view i was like: HELL YEAH!! FIRST WIVES CLUB TWO!! NO ONE TOLD ME THERE WAS A SEQUEL!!!
here’s the synopsis for first wives club 2:
disgruntled first wives take their ex-husbands’ new lovers under their wing.
sounds great, right? awesome viewing material for a precocious 11-year-old.
so i buy this movie, and like, three minutes into it i’m starting to feel suspicious?? like it’s really low quality and my girls are nowhere in sight?? how come none of the first wives are the same?? how come they’re alone in a bedroom with mood lighting?? why is she taking off her shirt?? why are they both taking off their shirts?? WHY ARE THEY—
here’s what i did not know about first wives club 2:
- it is a lesbian porno of no relation to the beloved 1996 classic.
so of course i, horrified that i’ve accidentally bought porn on my family’s account (and in that state of panic that kids work themselves into whenever anything regarding sex is mentioned), quickly shut off the TV and go upstairs and watch an episode of veggie tales to like, cleanse my soul and apologize to jesus, and that’s that.
EXCEPT, OF COURSE:
- you have to pay for pay per view.
so the end of the month comes and i have completely put this incident out of my mind, haha, i accidentally bought porn, how funny, TELL NO ONE. right? and i’m sitting at a nice dinner with my mother, my stepfather, and my very religious aunt deb, and we’re just talking about farm things, whatever, when suddenly my mother puts her fork down and says, “okay, there’s something we need to discuss. as a family.”
- AS A FAMILY.
and i’m like, running through a list of people i know who could conceivably be dead, and fantasizing about my mother announcing that she’s going to buy me My Own Computer Just Because U Earned It Kiddo, and she pulls out a piece of paper that says DIRECTV across the top. and i’m like: OH NO.
"i received the tv bill today," my mother said, and i was like, shoveling potatoes into my mouth as fast as i could because i knew that when i went to PORN PRISON they weren’t going to feed me this kind of quality starch. "does anybody want to tell me who purchased the pornography?"
as a reminder, a quick table survey:
- my mother, surprised and disappointed by the porn bill (innocent)
- my stepfather, a grumbly old cowboy who just wants to sing along to kenny chesney and watch the hunt for red october (innocent)
- my aunt deb, a super religious catholic whose best friend is a nun named Sister Placid (innocent)
- me, the 11-year-old with a mouthful of potatoes who definitely purchased the lesbian pornography
my mother said, “i’m not going to ask again.”
my aunt looked at my stepdad. my stepdad looked at my aunt. NOBODY LOOKED AT ME, THE 11-YEAR-OLD WITH A MOUTHFUL OF POTATOES WHO DEFINITELY PURCHASED THE LESBIAN PORNOGRAPHY.
my mother shook her head and put the bill down. “this was incredibly inappropriate,” she said. “skip, deb, whoever. buy that shit on your own time. i’m not paying for it. what if molly had seen it?”
- WHAT IF MOLLY HAD SEEN IT?
"don’t expose my kid to that crap."
- MY KID
- TO THAT CRAP
"if you want to watch porn, fine, but do it in private and don’t expect me to pay for it. i can’t believe one of you did that in the living room."
- I CAN’T BELIEVE ONE OF YOU DID THAT
- IN THE LIVING ROOM
but molly, why didn’t you own up to it and explain that it was an accident?
- are you fucking kidding
- i did not want to go to porn prison
the fun conclusion to this story is that i never owned up to it, which means that there are 3 people in the world who have not solved the mystery of the lesbian porn. a quick survey:
- my mother, who lives every day wondering whose porn she paid for
- my stepfather, who probably wishes he knew less about his wife’s sister’s porn preferences
- my aunt, who probably wishes she knew less about her sister’s husband’s porn preferences
but molly, why don’t you own up to it now, with the safety of time and distance and the knowledge that porn prison isn’t real?
- are you fucking kidding
- this is the best thing i’ve ever done
The eleven year old with a mouthful of potatoes who definitely purchased the lesbian pornography.
Never ever tell.
Remember when Showtime tweeted this picture with #IanandMickeyforever? Everyone, I mean literally everyone loves and ships Ian and Mickey.
Oh Jared… [x]
also I really wish I could see the rest of what he wrote below…I am guessing it says “This is un fucking believable” or something…
Can we just appreciate the absolute gem that is Jared Padalecki?
I know “actors are people too” but I just really love watching him get pissed about shit I get pissed about.
I feel like that’s exactly the thing. It seems like Jared uses Twitter like he’s chatting with a million of his personal friends, so he complains and says stuff like any of us would on our blogs. I bitch about my life on here, I say things that are mock offensive, I air my controversial opinions, I chatter… cause I feel like you guys get me. Which is why I feel like people should calm down when they call Jared a baby or a jerk, cause he’s just acting like we’re his friends.
Was that a bit of human emotion we glimpsed in Crowley as he sat by Dean’s body before that startling resurrection?
"That’s not just residue of human emotion," Carver reveals. "When Crowley was shooting up human blood, whether they admit it or not, a kinship developed between these two. Call it humanity or call it friendship, it’s definitely there."
"How will Sam feel about his older brother palling around with the King of Hell?"
"Crowley will have his hooks deep into Dean when the show returns," Singer notes. "Once Sam finds out the truth about Dean, he’s just not going to have that!"
Can’t The Winchesters just get along?
"The boys are in a pretty unique place when they go into Season 10," is all Carver will tease.
What’s happening up in Heaven?
"How Cas will deal with his impending death and where he sees himself in the firmanent of Heaven and angels will be addressed in the first episode of the season," Carver promises. "Some angels are still down on earth. What those stragglers are doing could be interesting." And what about Metatron, who is now incarcerated in Heaven’s dungeon? Have we seen the last of him? "Hell no," says Carver. "As long as Metatron is alive, I don’t think his story is over yet."
So what’s the big theme for the season?
"This might sound mysterious," says Carver, "but to me, Season 9 was about choosing the kind of person you wanted to be, like Cas deciding whether to stay human or become an angel again. I think Season 10 will be about everyone looking up and saying, ‘You know what, I am what I am.’ We’ll see that play out in each and every character."

Back when 9x01 aired, I wrote about how I think the key to breaking the brothers’ codependency is to have Dean accept himself for who he is: Dean has to find value in his own existence. This week’s episode only strengthened my belief that the way to Dean’s heart is Castiel - and that, in return, is going to change around a lot of the restricting and manipulative ways all of them tend to treat each other.
I loved the episode because it conveyed a few very important things for everyone in ‘Team Free Will’:
- Castiel’s love for Dean is pretty much unconditional.
- Dean is slowly but surely losing himself and his purpose in life.
- Sam has a very good grasp of how messed up his and Dean’s relationship is. And yet, he is way too caught up in all of it to change anything.
Essentially, none of them are free. Dean is spiralling out of control into inhuman levels of self-loathing, Sam is caught between righteous anger and his care for Dean, Castiel is deeply affected by Dean’s anguish but is left immobile in his helplessness.
Although, as you can see, It all traces back to Dean.
What we are witnessing this season is Dean honest-to-god finding himself - but not without hitting the absolute rock bottom first - and it I think it will result in a) Dean accepting that he is loved and worthy of being loved and b) Sam and Dean (and Cas) finding back to actually trusting each other again.
Dean is the one with the ‘power’ to set Team Free Will truly free and he has to do so by becoming his own man. The following review is my take on what happened in “Road Trip” with focus on Dean’s emotional development and what I think is going to happen once Dean overcomes the internal crisis he is currently experiencing. I have also talked about this in my earlier review of 9x01 (which ties in a lot with this one here): Dean’s answer to this season’s theme of “who do you love” has to expand from ‘family’ to ‘myself’ and I think this is exactly where we are headed.
