Now accepting horny asks… because why not?
FILM: “MARRY ME”
A beautiful gay love story directed by Elvis Di Fazio for the closing act of Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras 2014. Music by Macklemore.
Still eye rolling at the fact that this is the billionth scripted “love story” that features two, chiseled white guys. Because this is what people accept. Can we see two, average looking men? Fat men? Men of color?
Q:which city do you live in, cutie?
(1) thank you (2) boston (3) are you an eligible bachelor? (4) are you hugh dancy? because we could go behind claire danes’ back. i got no qualms.
This guy wears yoga pants and hides his face, then confronts guys who look at his butt.
Lol what the actual fuck.
Yes. I would grab.
Is anyone else freaked out that when these men realize they’re looking at a man’s ass, and are then confronted on it, they turn violent? Like––they externalized their own internalized homophobia when they figured out they liked the way a dude’s butt looked.

I have now stooped to the level of begging boys to cuddle with me.
Nobody uses a condom for oral sex.
Shosh, you’re a cruel drunk.
And yet this is my favorite character and my favorite scene.
There’s no need to terminate sex just because we’re not meant for each other. God you’re so dumb, Parker.
Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter represented by the Princesses (and a Queen)
are you sure they dont all represent winter because everything looks pretty white
okAY LISTEN UP
TO MAKE THEM BLACK
WOUD BE INACCURATE
BECAUSE RAPUNZEL IS FROM GERMANY
MERIDA IS FROM FUCKING IRELAND
AND FROZEN TAKES PLACE IN SCANDINAVIA
NOW, CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG,
BUT IM PRETTY SURE THAT PEOPLE NATIVE TO THOSE ARE ARE USUALLY WHITE
Do you have an issue with the fact that there’s a chameleon in Germany (Tangled), since you are so opinionated about accuracy?
Do you have an issue with the fact that there’s magic in Scotland and Denmark (Brave, Frozen), since you are so opinionated about accuracy?
Reblogged for the above commentary. Nobody is beating themselves to death over accuracy here, so arguing that every pixar movie’s main character must be the same race as her country’s perceived majority race is just bananas. The decision to create a more diverse cannon of princesses can and should be made at a screenwriting level, but they’re not. Don’t type in all caps just because you’re mad that someone’s pointing it out.
Brave is the only movie on there with a connection to Pixar. The rest are solely Disney. They are part of the Disney new renaissance, which kicked off with a PoC princess: Tiana. There are three movies in the new Disney renaissance, two of which feature white protagonists. We will ignore your apparent decision that all white races are the same; Lord knows white racists do the same to races elsewhere.
Disney’s next film will be Moana, an Odyssey-like film about a Polynesian princess. In 2018 when the movie enters theatres, fully half of the new Disney renaissance movies will feature PoC princess.
There are currently 13 Disney Princess:
- Snow White
Of this list, four are PoC: Pocahontas, Mulan, Jasmine, Tiana. When Moana drops, it will be five.
US Census Data from 2012 reports that the total population of the United States is: 308,745,538. The total population that identifies as white is: 241,937,061. Which means there are 90,538,477 non-white people in the US.
# non-white / total population: 29%.
The proportion of PoC disney princess roughly matches the proportion of PoC people in the United States, the cultural context to which Disney markets the most.
Am I saying there ought to be satisfaction with equivalent representation? No. But what I am saying is that movies take time to make. The decision to include more PoC princesses has already been made, and continues to be made. Take some time to recognize that and refocus your efforts where they will have a greater impact, or at least the potential for it: institutionalized racism and other systems of oppression that tangibly affect peoples’ lives.
LOL so I have to choose to either focus on the portrayal of princesses OR “tangible” racism? One, not true. Two, neglectful media representation does, tangibly, hurt. Exclusion hurts. They are part of the same problem which is: institutionalized racism. Because media is an institution, get it?
I choose to focus on both, and the fact still remains that Disney movies are not just US phenomena but world-wide, and the overwhelming majority of the princesses are white. I’m glad that the climate appears to be changing, but being happy with 30% (split between chinese, african american, indigenous, and middle eastern) is ridiculous. Less than half of the world’s people are white.
See this… this is how it’s done.
No “you don’t look chunky, you look beautiful.”
No “you don’t look chunky” at all.
Just complete acceptance. Yeah, you look how you do, and how you look is beautiful. Mama gets it.
My friend says things like this, I’ll say I look big in something and he’ll just agree and then say he likes it. At first I would get upset and think “but isn’t he supposed to tell me I’m not fat?” It’s great to see a little girl learning what I’m only just learning now - that the size isn’t what makes you beautiful
