Nihilism: Life is without objective meaning, purpose, or intrinsic value. Morality does not inherently exist and any established moral values are abstractly contrived. Knowledge is not possible and some aspects of reality do not exist as such.
HOOOLD THE FUCKING PHONE
It’s actually a good thing that the zombie apocalypse starts in Florida because then the zombies only have one way to go and that’s straight up into trigger happy redneck territory. I give it two weeks before monster trucks and mullets save us.
can we talk about how this is still getting notes
The funny thing is that i can not actually come up with a counter argument for this.
There is nothing okay about racbending established what few Women of Color in Disney (Powhatan, African-American, Chinese and Desi/Arab) that are [barely] represented into non-descriptive caricatures of other cultures and peoples. It’s an act of racism, pure and simple, no matter the author’s “intent”. The fact that she continues this practice and is praised universally for it makes me angry.
The fact that I’ve seen this show up on several blogs focused on promoting positive/reaffirming artwork and media focused on People of Color without so much a critical thought or a second look at was being presented (most likely the attention is more or less drawn to the racebent white fairy tale characters like Merida, Snow White, Cinderella and etc.), bothers me. Who Mulan (a character based on a ballad/poem and legend of Hua Mulan), Pocahontas (a character who is already structured within a romanticized and racist account of what happened to the actual woman herself), Jasmine (a character based on the Princess from 1001 Arabian Nights) and Tiana (an African American woman living during in New Orleans in the 1920s, a time where there would’ve been no qualms about openly abusing her on the streets, much less hanging her, or throwing racial slurs at her without fear of repercussions, for attempting to make something of herself) are is fucking important, both within the media they appear in and the fanworks that attempt to depict them.
Excluding the absolute erasure of the history of Pocahontas (which is nothing to be fucked with, despite Disney’s firmly established lack of “we don’t give a fuck if she was a real person” with its animated feature) If this was merely a case of rewriting the story, say like Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, Shirley Climo’s Korean Cinderella or Rachael Isadora’s Rapunzel, then there likely wouldn’t be a problem. The fact that the artwork is explicitly targeting the characters without thought to their story’s general historic background and character arcs, more or less states that this is merely a case of playing dress up akin to that of a doll generator. a “East Asian Tiana” still deals with Anti-Black racism, a “Native American Mulan” still fights for her Chinese father’s honor against the Huns, so on and so forth.
This is the anti-thesis of the speculative nature of “chromatic recasting”, or as its more commonly known, “racebending”.
Behaving as though they are interchangeable, that People of Color are interchangeable no matter their life experiences, stories, and culture, is flat out racist. No, this being fan art does not give it or the artist a pass. “They can do whatever she wants” is not an excuse. The fact that they continues to do this explicitly expresses that they do not care.
I was unaware of this being racism until some of my followers pointed it out to me. I asked the original artist if they could make a photoset with just the white princesses, but obviously I was never answered.
They actually did every princess, with the exception of Anna and Elsa. This post is so misleading, I feel like OP was either purposefully trying to stir the pot, or they just didn’t care enough to do actual research. If you can find the Artist to contact them, why couldn’t you find ALL of their pieces? It’s called Google. Also, they pulled these Poc images out of sets that included their Caucasian counterparts :/ I rather like seeing other cultures represented that haven’t been otherwise.
On another note, Belle and Snow are stunning Appreciate, don’t hate =)
Yes to the above. Don’t twist things to make a flawed point.
It was about how if Disney can do these women of color then they could do others.
This is a picture of a Goldschmidt toad that has a mutation that caused its eyes to grow inward into its mouth. Therefore,it needs to open its mouth to see. It was found in a garden in Canada.
I ALMOST CRASHED ON THE FREEWAY BECAUSE I REMEMBERED THIS AND WAS LAUGHING SO HARD
Client: I threw out that black pen, it was out of ink.
Me: What black pen?
Client: The one that was lying on your tablet.
Me: You threw out my $150 Wacom pen?
Client: I tried writing with it and it didn’t work. It must’ve been out of ink.
this is my favourite vine tbh
Walk into the club like what up I got a big croc.
