You see, the term “Basic Bitch” and has been Columbus-ed. White people want so badly to be in on the joke of making fun of white people (so as to seem hip and down and to escape criticisms of whiteness, supremacy, and racism themselves) that they picked a group of white people they can lampoon and make fun of, all while distancing themselves from whiteness, a very tragic practice summed up neatly as “White People Be Like ‘White People Be Like.’”

Have you ever seen something completely baffling but also technically excellent? I can’t believe how well this person edited Jane into Treasure Planet so she and Captain Amelia could fight the bad guy from Osmosis Jones. “Man,” I say to myself, “I could never make this bizarre music video about beloved animated characters becoming ghosts.”

Before you know it, you’re 20 years old and wondering what happened to that 13 year old girl and why did she spend so long hating herself? But you realize that 13 year old girl didn’t ever see herself to be 20, she didn’t think she would make it that far, but she did, and oh God, she’s so proud of herself for doing so.
Please don’t ever give up. It may be a hard battle, but I promise it’s worth the fight for your life. You can do this. (via cats-tats-recovery)

trigger warning: mentions of sexual & physical violence,  transmisogynoir

This is so incredible to have three Black trans women talk about their experiences with transmisogynoir, police profiling, and trans community erasing their Blackness. Like!! On national television?? This is HUGE.

Falling in love with myself has been the best decision i’ve ever made in my life. Being a big girl my whole life, I struggled with accepting my body in its entirety. I always broke myself into pieces. “i love my hips, but not my thighs.” “my ass is great, but my arms are too big." But, it took a heavy dose of reality and lots of self awareness and realization to see that I am fat AND I am beautiful, all of me. My beauty and my size can coexist peacefully, and they do not determine one another. There is power behind my confidence, and every day is part of the journey of positivity in my body, mind, and soul. Being a plus size woman is a part of my path in life, and I choose to accept it so i can grow and live in my greatness. [thebutterflyeffect]
