We asked twenty strangers to kiss for the first time….
This guy knows his shit on how to kiss a girl.
Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
Sometimes I want to tell someone how proud I am about not hurting myself. Then I remember I don’t have anyone.
We are proud of you!
This absolutely disgusts me beyond anything. NO ONE should ever be bullied based on their sexual preference. It is NOT a choice and bullying someone for something they can’t help is what’s wrong with today’s society. I was Googling articles on suicidal stories for gay teens and found MILLIONS of results. That’s disgusting. This “choice” that people like me are making has resulted in the highest rates of suicide among any group of individuals. If it was a choice wouldn’t you think we’d change to avoid all of this? Unfortunately that’s not how it works and just as teens start accepting themselves they get even more shit from people. If that’s not bad enough imagine this. Imagine being kicked out of your home because your parents don’t agree with you. Imagine not being able to go to church because you’re seen as a walking sin going to hell. Imagine walking down the halls and getting beat up. All of these are things that happen in the life of a gay adolescent. Why is it people hate people solely on liking someone of the same gender? WHY! How does that possibly bother you in any way?? It’s not even any of your business anyways. In no way does it affect your way of living. I really hope you didn’t scroll past this simply because it had the word gay in it and you don’t want to have anything to do with it. Please just know what a gay teen like me struggles through EVERY day. I’m not going to make you reblog this but if you did that would be nice to help show people how hard it is to live like this. I hope it opened your eyes and maybe if you see a gay person walking the halls; please say hi and let them know it’s okay. That’s all we really want is to have people who care. When we have no one there for us, that’s when gay teens decide to take their own lives.
The guy who wrote this is my god.
We can’t change who we are, we are born homosexuals and I really don’t understand what’s wrong with it. Everybody likes different clothes, music, hobbies; so why can’t we love who we want?! In my school I always hear people using the word “gay” as an insult and it pisses me off, but reading this, it makes me so sad. We live in such a fucking broken world. RIP for all those guys who didn’t deserve all the hell they have been trough for their sexuality.
