Still won’t hold up to the eggplant. But I guess that’s just personal preference :)

I’m not sure if cutting an admitted sexual abuser some slack is something I support. That may be just because I don’t support idiotic and ignorant ideas. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

janaegal commented on Jesse Williams Perfectly And Passionately Explains American Racism

at 2:15PM on Dec 20

I really adore him and have for a while. There’s a particularly special connection I feel with him, being half black myself. I appreciate him acknowledging how much easier he has had it versus darker skinned actors, but that doesn’t make his struggle any less valid or his passion any less real. This has been an incredibly dynamic year for race relations and this idea that racism isn’t only in existence still but it is thriving. I feel that a huge part of the issue is that for so long it wasn’t PC to be a racist, so these feelings were just pushed down deep where they began to collectively fester and boil. I really feel that’s why it’s so bad now, people just don’t care, they are tired of trying to pretend they are politically correct people and are letting their hatred shine through. I wish I had a fix for it, but I don’t and I’m not sure if there will ever be one.

I can actually take this a step further.

If these men (straight men) were to be treated this way by gay men, they would be angry, disgusted and infuriated. But it would still never change their way of thinking.

The comments are even more disturbing. It’s not my obligation to the world to smile on demand and talk to complete strangers or to get stopped and harassed for POINTEDLY avoiding eye contact. Doesn’t matter if my headphones are in and I’m reading a book, it’ll happen. If I smile politely and answer with a simple hi or thanks, it invites more unwanted attention. If I ignore them, more than often I’ll be called a bitch or stuck up.

It’s just further proof that women are not treated as human beings the vast majority of the time, we’re treated as objects.

janaegal commented on The Dallas Cowboys Have Cut Michael Sam From Their Practice Squad

at 7:11PM on Oct 21

I actually think it has to do with the Cowboys having such an amazing season, the asshole owner Jerry Jones (I can say that as a long time fan) doesn’t have a need for publicity right now like he did when he signed him.

Michael Sam is a great player, he should have been drafted in one of the first few rounds. I’m disappointed that he’s not with a team, but I’m still holding out hope!

I also read Jessica Lange is interested in doing another season. I’m curious if she’ll pop over on American Crime Story instead though.

My boyfriend is an obsessive Pearl Jam fan (almost to the point of being embarrassing but then I remember how I talk about Ryan Gosling so all is forgiven) and I have to say, I never really thought twice about them before meeting him. Now, 5 years later, I’m actually a fan of them and their music (don’t tell my bf) and they do some incredible covers.

I don’t know, i sort of agree with the essence of what she’s saying. Why do POC have to specify African American/ Mexican American while you NEVER hear caucasians say European American. There isn’t a qualifier on whites while there are a million of POC and the homosexual community. And as my dad found out the hard and expensive way, it’s incredibly hard to trace on Ancestry when you’re a POC because they weren’t exactly interested in keeping accurate records for slaves being brought to American, if they kept them at all. And names were changed and families broken apart. So it’s not as easy for me to go back past 5 generations as it may be for my boyfriend, who is white, and who was able to go back to the 1400′s for his family linage.
