FAVORITE CELEBRITY CHALLENGE
(1/5) favorite outfits
ALL I SEE ARE LEGS.
Also, why is there such a correlation between late night talk shows and women in short dresses? I don’t even know.
genderbent mulan where ping is terrible at combat so instead of joining the war he dresses as a lady, calls himself mulan and becomes betrothed to shang to keep his family’s honour without going to war, but shang finds out his wife is a man after they’re already married so it’s like a secret gay affair
i want this to happen
Anonymous asked: I'm sorry you went through what you did but I have to say I don't understand how such a smart, confident, beautiful girl like you could allow yourself to be treated that way by Luke. It doesn't make any sense to me that you would let him manipulate and use you like that. Sorry to say but he's not even that cute and you are way too good for him. I hope you find someone better who treats you right <3
This message has sat in my inbox for awhile and while I haven’t responded to most of the hundreds of anonymous messages I’ve received about this situation (which is still exhausting and emotionally draining to talk about publicly, so forgive me if I’m terse), I feel compelled to respond to this one simply because I think it’s representative of some damaging misconceptions & misunderstandings about victims of emotional abuse.
First of all, I understand that you’re trying to compliment me, so thank you for that. But intelligence, confidence, and attractiveness have little to no bearing on whether someone is susceptible to being victimized - anyone can be vulnerable to a sociopath, and all of the girls who have come forward about their abusive experiences in the past month or so have been smart, confident, attractive girls. In fact, sociopaths are excellent at identifying ways to use positive traits against their victims as weapons in the process of systematically breaking down their identity, autonomy, and self-esteem (see: Traits of the Pyschopathic Victim and Stages of the Psychopathic Relationship).
Two additional breakdowns of how emotionally abusive relationships work that I found extremely helpful in identifying how to categorize and come to terms with my own experiences, that might also help you & others who struggle to comprehend how victims of emotional abuse can “let” their abusers manipulate them: Covert Emotional Manipulation and How To Tell If You’re Being Manipulated. I recognized all of my experiences in those links, just as I’ve received so many private messages from girls who recognized their own experiences in my post and the posts of others - if you’ve been there, you Get It. You’re fortunate that you haven’t, and therefore don’t. Hopefully you never will.
I’ve tried composing something to concur with Whitney, but it really boils down to this: No one ever “allows” manipulation into his or her life. It happens and it changes you, and every day is a new challenge to cope and to rebuild and to strengthen. Every day is a new day to tell that lingering noise to shut up, that you’re not the person the manipulator told you you were.
You were made to be awesome. You were made to do more. You were made to love and to receive love. Sometimes REAL EFFED UP SHIT HAPPENS and it’s not your fault. And you just have to keep remembering that.
DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.
