So, I was reading through my comments the other day when I came across one that really disturbed me…This girl is really pretty. NO HOMO. I know what you’re thinking “It’s 2012 who still says that”. I thought the same thing too. But for those of you who don’t know. No Homo is a qualifier that is used to assure your present company that you are not in fact a homosexual. Because this phrase makes my skin crawl. I decided to make up a few qualifiers of my own and with your help I hope that I can make these really popular in 2012. - Chescaleigh

from this Variety article, along with some initial thoughts

Although her highly-anticipated Louis Zamperini biopic “Unbroken” doesn’t bow for another three months, Angelina Jolie already has another true story in the works. Jolie has been tapped to direct “Africa for Skydance Productions from a script by Eric Roth.

white american women set to direct a film called “Africa”. we’re already off to a bad start.

The pic is based on the true story of paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey’s battle with ivory poachers, who threatened the existence of the African elephant population and the very soul of Africa. Jolie, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Jon Peters are producing.

i’m very interested in knowing what these people know about the “very soul of Africa”. Also the conservation work in question occurred in Kenya, as in ONE OF THE MANY NATIONS OF THE CONTINENT OF AFRICA. Would you call a movie about the French Revolution “Europe”???? NOPE

“Based on Richard Leakey’s inspirational life, ‘Africa’ is a story that deserves to be told,” Ellison said. “It is very close to my heart, and I know that it will exceed my expectations in Angelina’s hands. She is an incredibly talented filmmaker and is sure to turn Eric Roth’s impeccable script into the project I’ve always wanted Skydance to be involved in.”

though Richard Leakey (a white man of british parentage) has no doubt led an interesting life and done a lot of important work and made a lot of wonderful contrubutions… is his biopic REALLY the story about Africa that “deserves to be told”???!?!?!?!! Off the top of my head i can think of about 20 that i’d rather see on the big screen.

“I’ve felt a deep connection to Africa and its culture for much of my life, and was taken with Eric’s beautiful script about a man drawn into the violent conflict with elephant poachers who emerged with a deeper understanding of man’s footprint and a profound sense of responsibility for the world around him,” said Jolie.

I was actually really disappointed by Jolie for this. As a former Goodwill Ambassador who has visited several different African regions and nations in her humanitarian work, she should really have a better perspective on how Africa is NOT A MONOLITH. What is this single African culture that you feel so deeply connected to? What is this “soul of Africa” that you somehow think you know? And why does the story of Africa that “deserves to be told” have a white face plastered on top???

One day, John may just punch her.

I know I would if someone continually called my best friend “freak”

This is why I dislike Donovan, it’s got nothing to do with her gender, colour or how well she does her job. It’s this.

Then I would hope you also dislike Sherlock because he deliberately tortures a man, drops another out of a window, laughs when investigating a crime about kidnapped children, makes general unkind and arsey comments to strangers and friends alike, scared the old lady at the Surrey boarding school, continually refers to Anderson as ‘idiot’, drugged his best friend and put him through a traumatic experience with little to no remorse, forces a man with PTSD (or whatever he had) to go to a triggering place and then does an Edmund and denies he’s seen the Hound, also getting excited after Henry almost kills himself because he enjoyed the case, commented on a woman’s sex life therefore attempting to shame her and embarrass her in front of her peers at her place of work, calls murder ‘Christmas’ and belittles everyone he ever interacts with.

Otherwise it would seem you are holding this female poc character to a different standard to the white male character, and being unnecessarily harsh on her for merely reacting to a person who demeans her and her colleagues often and doesn’t show much kindness. 

I also want to point out to the op that Sherlock calls Sally’s best friend/lover/colleague ‘idiot’ often. Think about that. Yet I don’t think Sally would descend to the level of violence. 

Seriously. Sally is a police officer who CONSTANTLY has a “consulting detective” bombarding her crime scenes and her investigations, insulting her, insulting her co-workers, generally being a patronizing asshole, belittling her and her co-workers as he saunters around the room. 

I mean, in the first interaction, REALLY look at the dynamics at play. We have a cis able-bodied affluent privileged presumed-heterosexual white man showing up at this woman of color’s job site where he proceeds to not only insult her, but make “deductions” about her giving blow jobs to a co-worker in front of the rest of her co-workers. This man who is a former drug addict, and would go on to engage in MULTIPLE crimes through the series (including torture, assault, breaking and entering, and whatever the hell drugging people without their knowledge is) 

But no, no, Sally is the bad guy here. Fuck that noise. 

BBC Sherlock has the potential to be a really interesting, innovative program. To bad they cast the antagonist as the sympathetic protagonist. 

Yeah that’s something that does annoy me about Sherlock: Sally Donovan, in theory, should be shown as a complex and determined character that doesn’t take any shit. But instead the writing and narrative tries to frame her as a bully.

This is very creepy, possibly triggering, and generally not okay. I just want to warn everyone of that in advance.

Someone recently alerted me to this blog called Nonkepedia.

This is apparently one of those gross fetishizing porn blogs that post pictures of Asian men. Except this time, it appears the owner of the blog takes pictures of random men and posts them - without consent.

To make matters even worse, there’s quite a bit of this:

image

There’s quite a few pictures where the caption says “highschooler”, “boy in highschool”, etc. Which.. presents an obvious fucking problem.

I don’t know if this is a expat taking and posting these pictures, although there’s two things that make me wonder. One is tagging of #asian guys, #east asian guys, etc. The other is the fact that it’s constnatly reblogged and possibly affiliated with other gross fetishizing blogs, including a few that have in the past reblogged and said gross perverted comments about me.

At very least, it appears this person is fetishizing young men (possibly boys) and posting gross pictures and gross captions without consent.

This is really beyond vile. Why the fuck someone thinks this is okay, is really beyond me.

Please report Nonkepedia.

We. are. not. public. property.

I’ve got to run errands then go to the office, please keep reblogging AND REPORTING this scum.

WARNING - PLEASE READ IF YOU HAVE A PEANUT ALLERGY AND LIKE TO SHMEAR MAKEUP ON YOUR SKIN TO MAKE YOU LOOK AS FLAWLESS AS YOUR PERSONALITY
I am one such an individual, and last night I was super pumped to try this concealer. Out of curiosity I read the ingredients and saw something called arachidyl behenate.
Anything with the root “arachi” such as “arachis oil” is probably peanut related. And, sure enough, I did some research and arachidyl behenate is peanut-derived. Which is the story of how I nearly smushed a deadly food allergen into my skin.
There’s a report here from last year that seems to indicate that some food allergens are neutralized when processed for cosmetics, but I’m not sure that applies for peanuts. And at any rate, they did indicate there was still a risk of a reaction if such proteins weren’t processed properly.
Now, I’m gonna say it outright - I’m not one hundred percent sure that a heavily processed peanut-derived chemical such as arachidyl behenate will cause a reaction. I’ve worn a lot of makeup over the years without checking the ingredients, so I could have easily used a product containing it without knowing. Still, better safe than sorry.
Alternate names for peanut products (anything with the prefix “arachi-” should be considered suspect):
beer nuts, earth nuts, goobers, groundnuts, groundnut oil, hypogaeic acid, katchung oil, mandelonas
A full list can be found here, another cosmetic-specific one here.
Here’s some articles on the subject:

Stay safe, guys, and please signal boost for any peanut-allergic followers you might have!
