This what some of you guys missed when watching the Anaconda video by Nicki Minaj
wow this analysis is so good
this also makes the parallel between drake in the video and shinji actually have substance when you think about it
What’s funny is that people are so full of it. They accuse her of making shallow 2-dimensional music, so they must be pretty damn deep and analytical, right? WRONG, because as soon as they see asses shaking, they’ve already made up their minds. They’ve missed everything this person is saying because they’re the ones who are shallow. The only place where these people could ever truly be considered analytical is within the confides of their own minds.
THANK you, I knew there had to be more to that video than what I was seeing but I couldn’t figure it out myself.
All of this. The only thing I don’t agree about in that video is the tasteless “skinny bitches” comment. I love that she is glorifying having curves, but I dislike the fact that she downplays another body type to do that.
She doesn’t though go and listen to the song again. My analysis of the last part of the song could be way way WAAAY off base here but let me explain how I understood it. In the same way that one of the above posters explained that the whole song is about subtly. It is so subtle in fact that if you don’t pay enough attention you miss the fact that it’s incredibly feminist. Personally I’d say that the last part isn’t really about body type because the song isn’t actually about body type if you really think about it. The skinny bitches comment is actually about race in my opinion. I know it’s a massive generalization to say that white women don’t have fat asses but if you roll with the stereotype for a second. The song isn’t just about feminism it’s about feminism as a person of color. Not only does Nicki have to fight against sexism she also has to fight against the fact that white women are idealized over women of colour. So yeah the song really is for the “bitches with a fat ass in the fucking club” read: women of colour and not the “skinny bitches” read: white women because yeah fuck them. I say this as basically a white woman myself because I’ve been on tumblr long enough to see and read enough things to know that feminism for a person of colour and feminism for a white person is not the same fucking thing and I’m often equal parts disgusted and frustrated by the things that white people do. Like don’t project your idea of feminism onto Nicki (because I’m pretty sure there are women that have plenty to ‘say’ about the video) she is a feminist and I don’t think anyone has a right to undermine that or tell her she’s not because she’s not doing it the right way or something. I personally don’t have a problem respecting something that I know I’m not exactly a part of. You can still enjoy the song and learn from the song while understanding it’s not about you. Honestly I really believe Nicki is saying all of this and that is pretty fucking deep.
this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts….
do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?
stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.
THIS SO FUCKING MUCH. IT IS ONE OF MY PET PEEVES. THIS ACTUALLY MAKES ME SO FURIOUS ESPECIALLY WHEN CELEBRITIES JUMP ON THE BANDWAGON OF THINGS LIKE ‘STOP POISONING YOUR KIDS WITH UNHEALTHY FOODS ETC ETC’. DO YOU THINK THE PARENTS WANT THEIR KIDS TO LIVE OFF OF BAD FOOD? IT’S NOT THEIR FAULT, ITS THE FOOD CORPORATIONS AND ADVERTISING COMPANIES THAT HAVE CREATED THIS PROBLEM. HEALTHY EATING IS BASICALLY A LUXURY FOR THE WEALTHY. IN MY LIFE I’VE AT LEAST BEEN EDUCATED ON WHAT IS A GOOD DIET (NOT EVERYONE EVEN GETS THIS MUCH) BUT HAVE AT TIMES HAD TO SACRIFICE MY HEALTH BECAUSE I CANNOT AFFORD TO EAT HEALTHILY. I’VE WANTED TO, I’VE TRIED BUT WHEN I END UP SPENDING 30 DOLLARS ON ONE FUCKING MEAL!!!! I DETEST THE WAY THAT THE BLAME IS PUT ON THE INDIVIDUAL BECAUSE THINK ABOUT IT I GET STRESSED AND I’M JUST TRYING TO FEED MYSELF. IF I REALLY REALLY WANTED TO EAT HEALTHILY ALL THE TIME I COULD SACRIFICE OTHER THINGS IN MY LIFE THAT ARE DEEMED LUXURIES BUT IF YOU’RE SAY A SINGLE PARENT TRYING TO SUPPORT THREE CHILDREN 120 DOLLARS GIVE ME A FUCKING BREAK. WHEN A SINGLE FUCKING TOMATO COSTS OVER A DOLLAR AND YOU CAN GET A FULL MEAL AT MACDONALD’S FOR 5 WHAT DO YOU THINK PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DO. IF I DIDN’T KNOW BETTER (AHEM) I’D SAY THERE IS A CONSPIRACY GOING ON TO MAKE THE RICH RICHER AND KEEP THE POORER DOWNTRODDEN AND UNABLE TO HAVE ACCESS TO THE THINGS OR THE LIFESTYLE THAT SIGNIFIES AFFLUENCE AND SUCCESS.
its really important for men to stand up to other men who say terrible and sexist shit
because sexist men dont listen to what women have to say
literally the most important thing men can do if they want to call themselves feminist allies

from various reddit threads
at dinner last night, a coworker was talking about hanging out with his white friends and getting fed up with the racist jokes, and asked them to tell a white people joke. nobody had any, so he googled and found these. after a few of them, people were a lot less comfortable.
white folks, next time you hear a racist joke, maybe lead with one of these in response. tag this “I’m white” when you reblog it, if you are.
I’m fucking screaming at the last one tho.
