Hey y'all my name is Mila! and I reblog/like commentary of the social variety and on what ever else I'm feeling.
Whether it's Pop Culture or something random.
Bonnie Bennett, Tara Thornton, fan and more...
I try my hand at Fan art now and again and i'm a bit of a Fanfic'er--(comics if I can make em') as well. My blog is a mess of random shit.There's a lot of fashion reblogging too and I put art up when I can.
Also; if me reblogging or posting things on important issues such as racism, sexism, lgbtqiap+, misogyny, etc...makes you uncomfortable or angry? Then you have two options; don't follow, and/or unfollow. It's as simp as that.
This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.
This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.
I would literally punch him and I wouldn’t stop
black people taking selfies and posting them online means normalizing black skin and black beauty! it means redefining what is beautiful and acceptable! it means getting our faces out there to be appreciated and loved without needing to wait to be called by a casting director for a movie, tv show, or fashion show! it’s self-love of everything they told us was ugly!
WE’RE FINE AS HELL AND WE’RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE

Help a sista out -
Hello, my name is Zeba. I’m a freelance writer based in NYC. Recently, my Macbook, which I have owned for about 4 years, has been on the fritz. It’s been slow, glitchy, and unable to hold a charge. This week it finally said “bye, Felicia” and died, permanently. I went to the Mac store and was told I could either try getting a new battery, or get a new computer. Since the comp was already old and giving me drama, I’ve decided that I want to buy a new laptop, but I could use some help towards that.
Why I need a laptop tho -
Basically I am a freelance film critic, recently out of university. I’ve written for the Huffington Post, Indiewire, The Village Voice, Slant Magazine, Essence, and Film Quarterly, amongst others. Every week, I record and edit the pop culture/feminist podcast Two Brown Girls. I’m associate editor of Golly magazine, and have to keep up with team documents and Skype meetings to work on issues. I am also currently working on the final draft of a book (about growing up African with a mental illness haaay) that will be published next year. Having a working laptop is really important, because I need to be able to file reviews and work on articles/essays at all times, as well as keep track of screenings, interviews, and other obligations in my schedule.
Next month, I’ll be covering the New York Film Festival, and in January I will be attending Sundance, and not having a laptop will make it impossible for me to work!
Where the coins will be going -
If I get fully funded, I would like to purchase a 15-inch Macbook Pro. I currently pay $600 a month in student loan payments, and am also trying to save up to get my own apartment next year, so to save up for a new laptop on my own would take me into next year, and I urgently need a new one before the year is out! Anything helps, and I appreciate you taking the time to read this because I have no idea what I’m doing. Thank you!
Other ways to help -Feel free to share this with other folk! Or if you got an extra Macbook you don’t need give it to me please!!
La Secretaría de Gobernación inició un proceso administrativo para sancionar a la cantante pop Miley Cyrus, quien durante su show de este martes 16 de septiembre, en la Arena Monterrey, se inclinó para que uno de sus bailarines le golpeara los glúteos con una bandera nacional-
Lo curioso es que es el PAN quién pide la sanción siendo que ellos junto a los otros partidos se limpian el culo diario con ella y la pinche constitución.
i hope they charge her
Basically Miley Cyrus is in trouble with the Mexican government for rubbing a Mexican flag all over her fake butt that she was wearing. She could face a fine, like that matters, seeing as how she has plenty of money. Personally I don’t think it should be illegal to deface a flag, that falls under someone’s right to freedom of speech. But Miley is being extremely disrespectful by doing this in Mexico, and this isn’t the first time she’s accessorized black culture or disrespected people’s culture/national symbols in general.
Mexico’s laws regarding the national flag differ from those in the United States. You can’t use the Mexican flag on shirts, or merchandise, let alone burn it or express your opinion destructively using it. I’m guessing it has a little to do with the nature of the flag’s design; the story of Tenochtitlán, founded by heeding a Mexica oracle, indigenous pride in all of that, and the history of colonization (which, ironically, provided impetus for that flag). Given Mexico’s past of occupation & revolution, laws are strict on certain political expressions—especially when it comes to outsiders.
Miley Cyrus would know nothing or care nothing for understanding any of this. She is of the vampire clan, puro appropriation, whitewash, & disrespect to raise her own profits. I heard she got fined 200K for this, I hope it’s true.
She also did this on Mexican independence day, which adds another layer of disrespect and a lack of understanding for our history and our culture. Also “freedom of speech” means different things in different countries. Just because she has an American sense of entitlement doesn’t give her the right to ignore local laws and customs due to ignorance.
