Racebent/American version of My Mad Fat Diary

Naya Rivera as Chloe

Evan Ross as Archie

Ellen Wong as Izzy

The thing I like most about racebending is that certain themes and messages change when certain characters races are changed. I think in MMFD there is a narrative about self care, self esteem, self actualization, and self acceptance that you don’t see with black women in media.

We don’t tell black girls that it’s ok to be hurt sometimes. We don’t help heal the ones who hurt. We just tell them to get over it. 

MTV needs to make this happen. 

AYYYYEEE I could be so behind this. MMFD having an all white cast was one of the ways it fails as a show. So if MTV were to cast some POC for the main characters especially the female lead, now THAT would be really interesting. That has potential to be really awesome!

I am totally into this! Even though it would never happen!

I could get behind this version of MMFD. I really could.

GOD YES PLEASE MAKE THIS SHOW BW REALITY

Laverne Cox, Keynote address, Creating Change 2014

This is such an important thing to say, though.

A lot of people are acknowledging this as a very powerful sound bite, but take a minute to really consider the context of this.

Every time you misgender a trans person, you are putting their lives in danger.

You aren’t just hurting our feelings - and there is nothing “just” about hurt feelings for people prone to suicide - you risk outing us to people we may not want to be outed to.

It opens us up to harassment, discrimination, and even assault. We could lose our jobs, our families, and our livelihood.

Every time you intentionally misgender a trans person, you tell us that you consider us to be less than animals.

Please don’t tell someone with some kind of depression that “happiness is a choice.”
Because it fucking isn’t.
Don’t you think we WANT to be happy?
We would be happy if we could.

It’s not that easy.

I’ll just tell my chemical imbalance that I choose to be happy

I’m sure that’ll work

Please consider emailing Time magazine at feedback@time.com to get them to reconsider not putting Laverne Cox on their list. She overwhelmingly got voted in at 91.5%, but was not put on there. Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood had 25% of the vote and was put on there.
The erasure of trans women, and women of color needs to stop. Ms. Cox does nothing but good work.

New Friend Application

fattastic-and-finally-happy:

I need new follower friends to bond with, so if you’re interested in getting to know me, you should send me:

Your name

Your age

Your pronouns

Your preferred means of communication (text, email, fb, Skype, etc)

A random fact about you that you think I’d like to know


I’m hoping to get lots of these so I can be friends with you all.

the-unpopular-opinions:

It is nice to know that Tumblr cares about gender-specific pronouns, but sometimes it gets out of hand. Animals could care less about sex or gender. What are you going to do? Check for their genitals or ask and call them a she/he/they/etc? It is perfectly fine to call an animal an “it”. They do not care.

This. Your pets do not give a fuck about the ins and outs of human language. You could speak to your dog in nothing but pig Latin, and as long as you’re consistent with commands, it isn’t going to give a damn.

thisisthinprivilege:

Thin privilege is speaking openly about body positivity and being respected and taken seriously, unlike a fat person being ridiculed because ”obviously they’re making excuses for not losing the weight.” I was bullied into losing weight and developed an eating disorder. It disgusts me that my opinion on body positivity is somehow more valid than it was when I was fat.

bisexual-community:

Friends of a blind bisexual asylum seeker from Cameroon are accusing UK deportation officers of beating him up.

Alain Kouayep Tchatchue fled after the people in his town discovered he was having sex with another man. Fearing being beaten or killed, the French speaker came to the UK in order to live and love freely.

The Home Office rejected his claim of asylum and issued a deportation order last week. Last Saturday (5 April), it was claimed immigration staff took him to Heathrow airport around 4am. It is claimed Tchatchue protested, saying he had a legal right to be there, and two male members of staff allegedly punched his wrists and upper torso in an attempt to make him submit. The blind man was then bundled into the van and taken to the airport, his friends claim.

They say he shouted ‘I’m gay, I’m gay! I don’t want to go back to Cameroon!’ as he was being attacked. A female member of staff, who was supposed to be looking after his welfare, then allegedly proclaimed Tchatchue was too ill to travel and the asylum seeker was returned to Harmondsworth Immigration Removal Centre close to the airport. On his return, the manager was so appalled by the injuries the police were called.

Reverend Andy Braunston, a friend of Tchatchue, has written to the director of public prosecutions Alison Saunders to ask the immigration staff to be prosecuted. ‘Alain is a blind man who uses a white stick to get around and who has fled here because of fear of the violence of the state in Cameroon,’ he said. ‘It is shameful that agents of our government have beaten this vulnerable man in an attempt to send him back to persecution. ‘We should be ashamed.’

The UK Border Agency decided in 2010 to allow gay men, lesbians and bisexuals if they were not allowed to live openly in their country of origin. Before 2010, those seeking asylum were often refused permission on the grounds they could behave with ‘discretion’ when returned.

However, some activists believe the attitude remains when it comes to bisexual refugees as it is apparently easier for them to be ‘discreet’.

When contacted by GSN, Harmondsworth Immigration Removal Centre refused to comment.
