Okay did any other big boob girls see this as superheroines readjusting their tops because obviously their titties is falling out because these tops are totes not big boob friendly?
Like I am not even wearing a top right now and looking at this makes me want to readjust my boobs.
gods, I miss SGCTC.
I watched the very first episode, expecting the ole “SPAAAACCEEE GHOST” shit, I had no fucking clue what it was….but I still watched it.
The Gladiator Spider can make an expandable sticky web like a net. When an insect passes below it, it stretches out the net, lunges downwards and flings the net over the prey.
I wish this were true, putting in 150+ hours every 2 weeks last summer and barely took home 3,000, I don’t know where honkies get the idea we don’t pay taxes…fuckin’ idiots
So I don’t normally post personal things such as snippets from Facebook and what not.. but this really had to be posted after I made a status about Forever21 and their disgusting appropriation of the West Coast Panthers wing, with a joke included about the KKK being Forever21’s next biggest thing.
This really all started because I made a status about 2 weeks about saying “Forever staying away from white people, they’re toxic. Gotta be someone pretty special to be an exception.” - obviously meaning that if you’re not an insensitive twit and you know your place as a white person, THIS DOESN’T APPLY TO YOU. There was a massive argument about it and all the people, including scribbled out blue person, claimed they’ve always been against racism and they definitely won’t stand for it “white people experience it”.
I would’ve added in more info about the BBP and what the movement was actually about in more detail, but I knew the response was going to be something dismissive, so I didn’t bother. I gave them the general info (explaining my BBP status that brought it all on and this person STILL acted like this).
When white people dismiss non-white voices, when they speak over and tone police us.. that’s when I lose respect. That is when I put my foot down and say enough is enough. When they act like this after basically being told that, they’re wrong.. it shows that they don’t really care about our struggles.
I won’t let you silence me.
