"Petition to ban LESBIANS from making films about STRAIGHT MEN" why would a lesbian wanna do that
the cover of this edition of my school’s paper just says “NAKED BUNGEE JUMPING” in really big letters. with a picture of a barbie, naked, bungee jumping
In which Snoop Dogg doesn’t give a fuck about your gender policing, and 50 Cent continues to be way too concerned about the sexuality of other male rappers.
this is wonderful
isn’t it interesting
how whenever lyrics by artists like Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and M.I.A are used on photo sets and gif sets and graphics of white women
it’s alway signifying some kind of Otherness or rebel status: white women who r warriors like Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss, or Emilia Clarke’s Danaerys, or in queer interpretations with Buffy and Faith. but i never see Nicki or M.I.A or Bey’s lyrics on photosets where white women are being deep and contemplative and innocent (Sansa Stark) or gentle and vulnerable and “feminine” and pensive and in love; no there’s a hundred thousand playlists of Florence and the Machine and Regina Spektor and Lana Del Rey and Marina and the Diamonds for that stuff right?
did y’all ever think, i mean you, white feminists on Tumblr who love to talk about ~weaponized femininity~ that maybe your use of Black and Brown women’s words is premised on seeing them as Other, as rebels, as not-quite-women, and that by appropriating these lyrics without considering the larger context of womanhood and race y’all are basically capitalizing off a marginalization that you created to affirm YOUR status as the Everywoman?
did y’all ever think it suspect that Nicki and M.I.A and Rihanna will be tokenized on a hundred “badass” playlists but none of y’all can name a single 90’s R&B song when it comes to a playlist about love and sensuality?
ever stop to wonder how affirmation of “rebel” white women like Dany and Katniss are constituted from the marginalization of WOC from feminist spaces y’all have defined as (implicitly) white?
maybe stop and think a little bit before taking catchy lyrics out of context?
Me and a jraf
I can’t seem to stop doodling now

idk much about captain america but i feel like this’d be a stronger argument if “tall strong white dude” weren’t… also the american ideal
i have a ton of cute girly things i no longer want, and i’d love for them to find some happy homes with some girls who need them!
everything is in good condition, and some items are brand new. clothes are all of varying sizes, which i will specify under the cut.
***just have a look under the cut, and send me an ask specifying what you’d like, and we can sort out everything from there***
some additional notes:
- to reduce the cost and stress of shipping, it would really help if everyone picks at least 10-12 items
- if anyone has questions about measurements, shipping, ingredients in the makeup, special requests, etc. go right ahead and ask!
- i will keep this post constantly updated as i send out items.
- finally this should go without saying but: DO NOT contact me with the hopes of ordering if you are cis! the intention of this giveaway is to provide for trans girls only!
go on and have a look:
also last time i went to lush i was just kinda chilling downtown so i ended up trying on so many colours on my lips… which is why i had cool indigo lips……. which i didn’t buy :(
i go to lush often, i frequent multiple lush locations (four??), i prefer the ones that have the friendliest most sample-happy employees, i make a bit of a show of my indecisiveness (which isn’t really dishonest bc i truly am very indecisive), and if they don’t offer samples i just ask nicely!!
can you literally just go in and ask for any sample? i never think to do it
UM well they can’t give samples of most of their solid stuff bc like how do you give samples of a bath bomb?
but yeah i’ve sampled facial cleansers and moisturizers, body lotions, shower gels, other body washes like ro’s argan and turkish delight, mask of magnaminty (i doubt they’d do samples of their other masks bc they’re all like for two uses anyway), shampoos, conditioners, leave-in conditioners, and even toners (they sprayed it on lil cotton pads for me and put them in a container. they clearly don’t do that often tho bc the one employee had to ask another one how to do it but it’s doable)
i’ve found that some lush locations are more pushy about giving you free stuff than others…. but if they’re not trying to give you samples yeah just take the thing and ask if you can have one c:
