a discussion we had in WLC concerning women.
And guys on here get so bent out of shape when we voice our opinions on how we feel unwanted by men, especially black men. Like we’re a last option. And I’ve experienced this in all walks of life. This wasn’t just an isolated incidence. That way of thinking is prevalent. Regardless of the opinions of 50 or even a 100 black men on tumblr. Folks get on here and act like they forget how the real world operates and thinks and then points the finger at us when we voice frustrations. And this is not to say all black men feel this way, but I come across more that do than don’t. And many women react the way these women did because they’re conditioned to think they are a last option, if an option at all. It’s so sad to think we believe someone is lying when they pick us first. Sorry for all the commentary on your video, Walker.

Jill, a PhD student at York University, draws a parallel between ‘fatness’ and ‘blackness’ as disruptions to dominant thin centric/Eurocentric body ideals. Jill’s key message: “Fat is a description not a prescription, nor an invitation for hate!”
On Sunday April 13 at the MTV Movie Awards Jared Leto accepted the MTV Movie Award for best onscreen transformation. Jared’s performance in Dallas Buyers Club won him the honour, and he accepted it from Lupita Nyong’o, calling it “an award in itself” to get the trophy from his fellow Oscar winner.
