I’m tired of the same X-Men characters in the movies. I’m tired of Wolverine. I’m tired of backstories. Everyone knows where they came from now. Why can’t they do a cool X-Men movie where Cyclops and Emma Frost lead? Why can’t they do a cool origin movie about Storm? She’s one of the most interesting X-Men.”

#even little white boys are tired of the same old shit
If I see another hero origin movie I’m going to blow my brains out.
Reminder: You are under no obligation to look pretty.
Not when you are laying around the house, not when you go to the grocery store, not when you sit in a classroom, not when you go to the gym. You are never obligated to get dressed up just so you are pretty for others.
Pretty is not the rent you pay to exist in the world as a woman.
A lot, a lot, a lot, a lot of your lived experiences on Earth actually have nothing to do with you, but with the narrative that your body presents — at least that’s what I’ve deduced. The narrative can change, sure, but if it does, it’s got nothing to do with what you’ve done to subvert it, and everything to do with other people doing a better job of restraining their inner asshole.
As the genius comedian Chris Rock said of Pres. Barack Obama’s election in 2008: “You could say that black people made progress, but to say black people have made progress would mean that black people deserved to be segregated,” he said. “The reality is that white people have gotten less crazy.”
This brings me to the recent Harvard Business Review article by a Harvard professor that aggregated a bunch of studies which all said that the social and inter-office political implications for women who “lean in,” AKA aggressively negotiate for pay or other things at work, are much more catastrophic than they are for men.
Worth reading, as well as related studies.
Trying to figure out if this is #Dior ? #RobertoCapucci ? Or ?
