So let’s get this straight: when male soldiers stand on a runway, Fox News says it is ‘disrespectful’ and ‘insensitive’ for President Obama — the soldiers’ commander in chief — to hold a caffeinated beverage while saluting them. But when a female pilot flies a combat mission in a US-led war, it’s apparently fine to speak about her as if she is nothing but a pair of breasts, and to suggest that despite her history-making status as the first female Emirati fighter pilot, she must not be able to park her aircraft. The segment must be seen to be believed.

Vox responds to Fox hosts labeling the first female UAE pilot to bomb ISIS “boobs on the ground,” among other sexist insults.

People magazine tried to delete this real quick, but I just wanted to let y’all know that no matter what, we’ll always be maids to some folks. 

Not surprising….folks are especially hateful when things are done well and we succeed. The only thing left is the spite, envy and petty. I think it is ingrained in the DNA for some. Not going to steal our shine at all…because Viola is kickin’ ass in her LEAD role  with an amazing supporting cast to boot. Shondaland rocks!

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS VIOLA

STRONG  BLACK WOMAN  ACTUALLY BEING PORTRAYED AS SEXUAL INSTEAD OF “A STRONG BLACK WOMAN WHO DON’T NEED NO MAN” 

YAAAAS YAAS YAAAS

Word!

Can we just talk about how important it was that Ichabod came back for Abbie? →

gotsteph:

Like.. all too often black women are caught up in this ‘strong, independent, don’t need no man’ trope and are forced to figure out how to get out of horrible circumstances by themselves. Or hell, sometimes they are even forgotten.

Any other TV show would’ve had Abbie out there figuring things out…

Great post!

If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones.

What we do is we keep filling the internet world with things like this so that the assholes can’t help but see it. And see it. And keep seeing it until it starts getting through. Because it’s the constant flow of assholery that normalizes their behaviour, and that’s what we have to supersede.

Obviously these are from the magazine as they aren’t online yet, so in a way it’s more authentic right? (haha!)
