I have to admit, I also really dislike the whole implication of ‘It Gets Better’, that LGBTQ kids just have to wait it out until they are adults, and be miserable for now. They don’t want to have to sit in misery and wait for it to get better in 10 years time, they need people in their schools and communities making sure action is taking place to make things better for them right now.
'it gets better' allows adults to sit around and do nothing to help lol
Shortly after announcing his plans to direct a movie about first U.S. president George Washington, acclaimed director Steve McQueen (12 Years A Slave, Shame) revealed that he intended to cast Idris Elba, known for his roles in Pacific Rim, Thor, and the BBC program Luther, in the starring role.
The film, Washington, will chronicle the titular president’s life over the course of his eight years as President of the United States.
"I’m very excited for this project," McQueen told us. "It goes without saying, this was a monumentally significant period in history, and George Washington was, and continues to be, a very significant figure. I hope I can do it justice."
Following the announcement, the Twittersphere immediately went abuzz in confusion, outrage, and controversy. One person tweeted, “how can you cast a black man? washington was white #smh”. Another said, “damn hollywood. how u gonna change someone’s race? what if we did that 2 other races? they’d riot #hypocrisy”.
However, McQueen responded to this controversy, saying, “I understand it looks like an unusual decision. But at the end of the day, it wasn’t about casting someone who was the right race. We went with the person who was the most talented, the most qualified, and that just happened to be Idris [Elba]. I think people will agree when they watch the movie, he truly captures who Washington was on the inside.”
Washington is scheduled to release December 11, 2015.—

one thing to add to that fat girl post: never ever ever ever ask a fat girl if she’s pregnant. never ask anyone if they’re pregnant. unless you’re an x-ray technician and it’s required for your job. why would you ever ask someone if they’re pregnant I mean why would you want to know that that’s so
real talk if i ever meet Anna Wintour Imma ask her if she’s pregnant tho
ur an inspiration leela

so hey fun fact for anyone who wants queer history trivia: the first disco in Seattle was opened in 1973 and was a gay bar called “shelly’s leg” and it was named after a dancer named shelly who lost her leg in a confetti cannon accident and used the insurance/lawsuit settlement money to open a gay disco.
