it’s so weird that people are shaming Beyonce for being sexual during her performance when literally in the speech in flawless says “We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are." Like how do you miss the point that bad
Faye, I find you so inspirational! Your work mesmerizes me. I've long taken self portraits and I've found them becoming more artistic and communicative since discovering your blog. I plan to start a blog of my own soon largely thanks to your influence. I still aspire to be as daring as you, all of my self portraits artistically obfuscate my face, but I have been working on becoming more brave. Thank you for sharing your vision and baring a bit of your soul for people like me to see.
Thank you so much for sending this to me. It makes me happy that you see this in what I post and that it drives you to try new things in your own week.
I needed a comment like this after last week. I know that’s a selfish comment but honestly - thank you so much.
What do you feel about Donald Glovers twitter comments about rape?
I’ve never seen him tweet about rape other than when he said “I hope I out grow Bro Rape” which is a comedy skit Derrick Comedy put out. That was really just saying that he doesn’t want to be known for that one skit alone since it was popular. In my opinion he’s already outgrown that 10x over.
So maybe I’m missing something?
I’m also not really sure where this question is coming from….?
Wouldn’t it have just been easier to ask me where I stand on the subject of rape? What I think about rape jokes? Have I ever been raped? Rather than wanting to judge me for listening to Gambino’s music because he MAY have made an offbeat comment about rape at some point which, lets be honest unless he posted it himself, may not even be something that he said or could have been taken way out of context as a lot of celeb remarks are.
He also fully admits to some of regrets he has about his past work - whether it be in comedy or in music. He thinks that CAMP came off as misogunistic and I honestly doubt that he hates women.
I like Donald Glover. I like Childish Gambino. I hate rape. I hate rapists and I find jokes about rape very distasteful.
I hate that rape is even a thing. I hate what it does to people. I don’t believe it’s right to joke about rape or rape victims. I wish that convicted rapists would serve more time than petty drug dealers. I wish that every person in the world who has been forced to experience that finds a way to feel whole again. I hope they heal, I hope they move on, I hope they forgive - but forgive in a way that allows them to be fully happy in life not in a way that I believe that their attacker deserves forgiveness - they don’t. Ever, at all because it’s never a mistake. I wish that attackers could feel every single day the pain and suffering they cause their victims.
“You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Dieting? Running after people who don’t see you? Be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. Take risks. You have this one life. Make yourself proud.”—(via anna-learns-to-love-herself)
