the only reason y’all hate jennifer lawrence is because there’s a convenient little list of everything bad she’s said floating around the internet and you read it and decided yes she’s a horrible person. what if someone compiled a list of everything stupid and ignorant you’ve ever said and done and sent it to everyone they know. are you a bad person? probably not. are you gonna seem like one? probably
"The reason Jennifer Lawrence is allowed to be a body-positive role model to young girls and “chubby” women is because she is representative of conventional beauty. She is a thin woman, exhibiting the thin privilege (and I know how much people hate that phrase) of making self-conscious body remarks while the rest of the world rushes to assure her that she’s gorgeous. Jennifer Lawrence’s public image has been built on a foundation of fat girl drag. She can call herself fat in interviews. She can actually believe she is fat, if she wants to. But she is not a fat woman, and her experiences do not speak to the experiences of actual fat people, no matter how strenuously Tumblr works to make it seem so." [x]
What’s even more troubling is that this mythos of the body-image warrior that the internet has created for Jennifer Lawrence has allowed her to say some pretty shitty things without much consequence. [all of you should read this]
I don’t hate her or dislike her but she tries too hard to be what her fans seem to like, and now everything she does seems fake to me. It has gotten to the point where her fans glorified her way too much, she can get away with pretty much anything as long as she keeps saying how much she loves to eat, how fat she is (she’s not), and be this “quirky, awkward, weirdly” person in front of the cameras.
So we all probably heard about Scarlett Johansson’ s pregnancy and I just want to say that I think we should all be happy for her and not complain about how it “ruins Marvel ‘s cinematic plans”. I’m sure everything will turn out fine and Marvel can easily film around that or push back the release date of AoU. Either way, I don’t think it’s fair to say bad things about her.
Here’s the thing about being pro choice that people don’t get…
You don’t have to morally agree with abortion to be pro choice. That’s why it’s not called pro abortion. It’s an understanding that you can’t make that choice for someone else and they have full control over that not you. It’s pro I’m not the boss of everyone else.
This is important.
Because people on tumblr seem to forget this a lot
- Discriminating against people of color is not okay
- Discriminating against white people is not okay
- Discriminating against anyone because of their skin color is not okay
- Discriminating against white people is not cool or edgy. It’s still discrimination.
- Discriminating against people of color is not cool or edgy. It’s still discrimination.
Discrimination in any form is not okay. So please stop that shit.
