Salome dances her dance of the seven veils,
The men all eye her like wolves on the hunt, this beautiful girl
finally undressing for them. Finally they can see her
exactly as they want to.
The first veil drops.
In 2007, Kim Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend
released their sex tape against her will.
Kim Kardashian, rather than hide in shame
Used the publicity to promote her own career.
Salome moves like a dream half-remembered.
Salome dances like a siren song. All the men ache
to see the hot sugar of her hip bones.
The second veil drops.
In 2014, Kim Kardashian walks down the aisle
As the whole world watches. If only all of us
were so successful in our revenge.
If only all of us stood in our Louboutin heels
on the backs of the men who betray us,
surveying the world we created for ourselves.
The third veil drops.
Kim Kardashian knows exactly what you think of her.
She presses the cloth tighter against her skin
Her smile is a promise she never intends to keep
We can almost see all of her.
Salome shows us her body
but never her eyes.
The fourth veil is dropping.
The four things most recently tweeted at Kim Kardashian were
@KimKardashian Suck My Dick
@Kim Kardashian Can I Meet Kanye?
@KimKardashian Please Fuck Me
@KimKardashian I Love You. I Love You.
Women are told to keep their legs shut.
Women are told to keep their mouths shut.
Some women are kept silent for so long,
They become experts in the silent theft of power.
The fifth veil has dropped.
Kim Kardashian made $12 million dollars this year
Yesterday, uncountable men in their miserable jobs,
told their miserable friends that Kim was a “dumb whore”
Kim Kardashian will never learn their names.
The sixth veil has dropped.
The seventh veil has dropped.
And Salome sat beside King Herod. And he swore unto her
“Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give to thee
unto the half of my kingdom”
And she smiled, and said
“Bring me the head of John The Baptist.
Punish the man who hurt me”
"#it’s sad that op does not know that wE ARE ASSIGNED GENDER AT BIRTH TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE PROPER NUTRITION FOR A NEWBORN BOY OR GIRL"
I know omg I know omggggggggggggggggggggggGGGgggGGggGggGggg
newborn boys are fed honey produced by workers, newborn girls are fed royal jelly to transform them into egg-laying queens, in order to start new colonies
This is one of the most accurate things I have ever seen.
There are two core effects in play here:
First, there’s microaggression. Basically, this is the fact that minor shit adds up to major shit if you’re constantly experiencing it from pretty much everyone around you.
Second, there’s the fact that something which seems minor to someone in a position of privilege is often very much not minor from the perspective of the actual victim.
“Tumblr overreaction” is a function of people having a reasonably safe space to sincerely vent from the net result of all the shit they’re experiencing in their lives, not people who “want to be offended by everything”.
Anyone ever consider that the second graph is in fact accurate, but not because “lol sjws get mad at everything” but instead because EVERYTHING REALLY IS THAT APPALLING?
i feel like “tumblr” is codeword for “marginalized people speaking openly about oppression” so the dichotomy is “normal people” and “oppressed people who don’t know their place” so literally if you agree with the original post i have nothing to say to you except you’re garbage
A lot of people are asking what exactly Jared and Aisha said and I am literally too angry to want to retype it all but I just tweeted about it, so here:
And that’s basically the summary of it, there was more but I was a bit distracted by rage to catch all of what was said.
I am just so angry because it shows just such disrespect and misogyny and I can’t even describe how hurtful their comments were, as a female fan, as a woman and a person who values the stories and lives of women, to see such blatant disregard and scorn for the idea of female characters, especially after Jeremy Carver’s condescending remarks earlier, and I just…
I don’t like hating people. I really don’t.
But I really hate Jared Padalecki and Aisha Tyler right now.
THE WIGGLES HAS A GIRL NOW
OKAY SO APPARENTLY THREE OF THE ORIGINAL MEMBERS QUIT SO THEYRE CALLING THESE GUYS “WIGGLES: THE NEW GENERATION” (PLUS ONE GUY FROM THE OLD WIGGLES)
They all look like they’re regretting being in the group.
that’s not the wiggles, that’s the blue guy and three liars.
Thor, I love you to bits, but we need to talk about your definition of ‘in my youth’:
The Jotuns must pay for what they have done. March into Jotunheim as you once did. Teach them a lesson. Break their spirits so they’ll never dare to try to cross our borders again.
#I remain intrigued by this quote#because like many of the films statements about time and asgardians it makes no goddam logical sense#but meta to the rescue:#I like the idea that this is how the aesir experience time#not as a progression#as we do#where yesterday is recent#last year a while ago#and ten years ago a long time ago#but in epochs and eras#marked by changes in themselves#they don’t age much#not like we do#whether you think they are young for the same-ish time we are and in their prime longer#or if they are still kids at 300+ years old#either way#for them time is purely relative#and nothing changes much#not technology not culture not the people around you#so you judge time by internal markers#thor judges his own maturity as beginning on the day he regained mjolnir and lost loki#so before then he was a youth for all he thought himself a man#for only a youth would court war#and now he knows himself a man#though still battle-hungry#(because it’s THOR c’mon)#but not war hungry#and there is a difference#and it’s about putting others wants and needs and safety before your own#which is what he was lacking in thor 2011 ( amberfox17 )
