in order to make a gif as your tumblr icon if you’re a chrome user you have to download an add on in order for you to see it; however, firefox, ie and opera users don’t need any add ons to see it :—))
so doing that, you’re going to need a .gif to .apng converter NOT .png…
K - How do you feel about the other people in your current fandom
do you really want to know how I feel about other people in my current fandoms do you
I’M ANSWERING IN THE TAGS
[Image Description: A twitter conversation between lizzie c and British feminist writer Caitilin Moran:
lizzie c: “what a surprise @caitilinmoran loves lena dunham. white feminists who ignore the experiences of WOCs have got to stick together guys!!!”
Caitilin Moran: “@lizziecoan THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT”
lizzie c: “@caitilinmoran did you address the complete and utter lack of people of colour in girls in your interview? i sure hope so!”
Caitilin Moran: “@lizziecoan Nope. I literally couldn’t give a shit aboutit.”]in which caitlin moran reaffirms her status as an arsehole
caitlin moran legitmately just told me that she could not give a shit about the representation of WOC. SHE JUST SAID THOSE EXACT WORDS. as one of the most prominent feminists in the UK today, her particular brand of white middle class feminism is THE FUCKING PITS AND I HATE HER. please excuse my rage but CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS.
her book is called ‘how to be a woman’. HOW TO BE A FUCKING WOMAN.
can i not be a woman if i think representation of WOC in modern media is really important? more important than the representation of white women?
guess who just dropped their brand new ipod touch on the pavement and cracked it all across
fucking kill me today is the worst
One way that psychologists have found to test whether something is seen as an object is by turning it upside down. Pictures of people present a recognition problem when they’re turned upside down, but pictures of objects don’t have that problem. So Bernard and his colleagues used a test where they presented pictures of men and women in sexualized poses, wearing underwear. Each participant watched the pictures appear one by one on a computer screen. Some of the pictures were right side up and some were upside down. After each picture, there was a second of black screen, then the participant was shown two images. They were supposed to choose the one that matched the one they had just seen.
People recognized right-side-up men better than upside-down men, suggesting that they were seeing the sexualized men as people. But the women in underwear weren’t any harder to recognize when they were upside down—which is consistent with the idea that people see sexy women as objects. There was no difference between male and female participants.
And yet another study with this conclusion….
