Realizing who your real friends are is simultaneously one of the most eye-opening and heartbreaking moments of one’s life.
Do you want to know the easiest way to get into a problem with me?
When you clearly see me visibly upset and walk up to me to ask me, “You got a problem?”
There will be a problem if you don’t get the fuck out of my face.
A woman tried to pull that at the gas station.
If you know that this podunk piece of shit little small-town gas station only has two pumps, and one of them is already occupied, and you see I’m signalling to you that I need to turn my car around for the other one, don’t fucking shove your car up my car’s tailpipe if all you’re going to do is get cigarettes.
That’s what the fucking parking spaces are for.
The parking spaces you could have used right behind you.
And don’t send your cracker redneck friend out of the car to come over to me and ask me what my problem is, because if she doesn’t get the fuck away from me, she will become my problem.

[Mary Poppins author P.L.] Travers was a feisty, stereotype-breaking bisexual — a single mom who adopted a baby in her 40s, studied Zen meditation in Kyoto, and was publishing erotica about her silky underwear 10 years before Walt had sketched his mouse. Now that’s a character worth slapping on-screen, instead of this stiff British stereotype determined to steal joy from future generations of children. With her longtime girlfriend and then-adult son erased, this frigid Travers seems like she may not even know how babies are made. Maybe Mary Poppins could sing her a song about it.
Why does it matter that Saving Mr. Banks sabotages its supposed heroine? Because in a Hollywood where men still pen 85 percent of all films, there’s something sour in a movie that roots against a woman who asserted her artistic control by asking to be a co-screenwriter. (Another battle she lost — Mary Poppins’ opening credits list Travers as merely a “consultant.”) Just as slimy is the sense that this film, made by a studio conglomerate in a Hollywood dominated by studio conglomerates, is tricking us into cheering for the corporation over the creator. —

welp there goes my interest in the film
I was wondering, given the truth about Travers’ disgust with Disney, how Disney was even willing to make such a film.
Now I get it.
I didn’t even know what this film was supposed to be about til now.
The trailer also hinted that Travers wrote Mary Poppins bc she wanted the nanny to “save” the father, which is so far from the point of the Mary Poppins series as to be ridiculous. Disney has literally done everything they could with this movie to remove all the female character’s autonomy and actual personalities and turned them into emotional prompts for the male characters to be inspired by and change.
Whoop, there goes my interest in this movie!
family guy is sexist, racist, homophobic, and transphobic on a regular basis but the people who watch it don’t get offended until seth macfarlane kills a dog that isn’t real

Beyoncé dropping her new album is the perfect real world application of that “surprise, bitch” meme.

Seriously though, why should she be asked to smile?
Asking a woman to smile is to make her more approachable. It’s to make you feel more comfortable - not her. I, personally, have zero fucks to give about being approachable to strange men on the street. Women are not here to entertain and please random folks.
Asking me to smile is akin to asking me to jump. Um, for what?
There’s this weird responsibility placed on women to be happy and lady-like and pleasant all of the time. It rids us of being able to express our own range of human emotions.
No one is asking for men and women to not interact with each other. That’s silly. This project is asking for women to be interacted with as if they have agency over their own bodies. — Tatyana Fazlalizadeh (via heal-your-bones)
