I’ve been playing Pokemon X literally ALL DAY, today.
Like, I bought this 2DS on Tuesday, and I regret nothing. It is literally RIGHT next to my work laptop, and I am putting forth little-to-no effort to hide it. This is serious.

Tight crew. Good peoples. We’re all extremely busy working hard on Black Dynamite Season 2. 2014!!!!
They have all created beautiful work. Thank you. MUTHUFUCCKKAAAAAAAAAA
Look at all the hard working black people!!!! Love it!!
considering all the work/sacrifice you have to do to get and keep them , then consider how many people actually gonna see them shits ? fuck that
Shit, if I had six pack, I’d be shirtless like a muthafucka
I’d walk around shirtless in sun, rain, sleet or snow. If I’m gonna work for it, everyone’s going to see my work.
I’d throw every shit I own in an incinerator, fuck that shit.
Oh, if I had a 6 pack, I’d be out here always just wiping my forehead with my shirt so everyone can see like “Damn, it’s too hot in this room, right now… Oh… Can y’all see my abs ? Whoops. *continues wiping for 3 more minutes*”
Instagram ? Shirtless pics. Facebook ? Shirtless pics. Tumblr ? Shirtless gif sets.
Like, thirst trap game Team Rocket.
Speaking of different body shapes. These are all basically peak human bodies.
How come 99% of them don’t conform to what the entertainment industry tells us is the perfect body?
This is a FABULOUS set of body refs. So glad this came back across my dash so I could reblog it here :D
I’ve seen this before somewhere in the internet. Fit bodies don’t have to look the same.
And let’s face it, Jon, there’s no way this man could be Santa. Because the moment white folks saw a Black man with a big old bag coming down the chimney, it’d be time to grab a gun and stand your ground.
I’ve been waiting for this oneTalk about it!
And this is why Jessica Williams is one of my favorite people.
okay, so first of all: this example is not “over sexualised” - this is someone who very possibly has never done a day’s worth of stripping in her life performing some moves in a dance studio. She’s very likely to have had a lifetime of dance and gymnastics training behind her and decided to take poledancing classes when it became the new hit craze. She’s learned in a formal class environment.
But poledancing was developed by strippers in a stripclub environment. Many of those strippers also had a lot of dance and gymnastics and cheerleader training behind them and they developed pole moves partly as a way to kill time when the club was quiet. They taught each other in an informal setting and innovated and created for themselves. Without getting paid explicitly to do so.
Their talent at being able to do things like this has never been recognised. Even though the first pole schools were opened by strippers and taught by strippers, it has now been appropriated by hundreds of people who have never done sex work and who have no respect for sex work, who think it is “sad” that poledancing has a history inextricably entwined with sex work, who only view poledancing as a legitimate artform once it becomes detached from its sex work context despite the fact it was conceived and built in a sex work environment by sex workers.
Poledancing is not “overly sexualised”. It IS a sexualised dance/athletic art and rightly so - it belongs to strippers and it is strippers who made it. Its beauty and athleticism and skill doesn’t change because it was used in a sexualised environment to help its practioners make more money (although now it is seen as just for middle-upper class non-sex workers to pay big bucks in a formal class environment to learn to titillate boyfriends and husbands whilst staying appropriately fit!). That’s a part of its history. Sexualised things are not inherently worth less because of their sexual nature. To believe so is just to devalue the hard work of the sex workers who innovated it and that is done more than enough as is.
Poledancing is still cool and amazing and requires great skill and talent to execute even MORE SO when it is sexualised. Just being able to perform it impressively is one thing; being able to make it a fluid part of a character performance (which is what stripping entails) is another. If you can’t appreciate that, you don’t understand it, so STFU.
this fucking commentary is perfect
