There’s this post about how if your feminism doesn’t include destroying racism it’s white supremacy.
This is why it’s white supremacy. Like yeah Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a man, but he’s also a man of color. Gloating about how Lucy, a film where a white woman who’s shown to be shooting men of color for not speaking English in a country where English isn’t widely spoken… isn’t intersectional feminism. Instead it’s the essence of white feminism because it’s glorifying the white hero in a non white country, when we are less than a century away from white Europe having colonized the majority of what is now referred as “third world countries” make no mistake colonialism is not dead. So basically if you see Lucy in the theater unfollow me rn.
Boycott Lucy watch Hercules.
I watched Hercules today. It was a good film, with great supporting actors, quite a few funny moments, Ian McShane (YES) and a lot of action. The Rock proves to be a very good actor, and really sells the character of Hercules.
I’m not surprised the imagery being used around Lucy leading Hercules in the box office. It feeds on all the negative views of the “Far East” that Hollywood has been milking for years. Nothing has changed really. I will say this… we’ve already known that white women lead movies (action or otherwise) sell. We know that by looking at all the romantic dramas, adventure shows, and YA adaptations lead by young white women that make money. So yeah, we’ll get MORE white women lead dramas, action, romantic comedies, and sci-fi movies. But will that mean we’ll see Black, Asian, and Latinas getting to lead movies, too, since female lead action movies are selling and have been for the last 10 years? NOPE.
But “yay feminism”… or some shit.
Opportunity follows struggle. It follows effort. It follows hard work. It doesn’t come before.

Start ignoring people who threaten your joy.
Literally, ignore them.
Don’t invite any parts of them into your space.

Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.

These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them.
