Forever 21 have stolen some designs of mine, quite blatantly. You can find the originals in my Etsy shop - www.knickerocker.etsy.com
Please reblog xxx
Support the original artist y’all.
Why do I seem to think that this isn’t the first time Forever 21 has done this?
It’s not, by far, the first time
I literally just went from aw to wtf.
NO BUT THIS IS WHY I LOVE LAIKA THO,
there was this big uproar over a character from paranormal being gay, so what do they do? next movie, they make a commercial that THROWS THE GAY IN YOUR FACE. They’re literally not being subtle at all about their queer representation and I fucking love them for it
Throw the gay in your face is perhaps the best thing I’ve heard all week.
And then the magical traveling circus of scholastic would randomly show up
at the motherfucking BOOK FAIR
I seriously miss the book fair.
Wait, you mean these don’t exist anymore?
We even had them in Pakistan and they were a big hit.
Oh the good old days
if you don’t think this carries an important message about our society then you are what is wrong with human society today
And this is why when you see a post empowering and uplifting black women, do not invade it with “don’t you mean all women.” No, because this is not the reality of “all women.”
Ok, guys? This isn’t some distant study, either. I REMEMBER LOVING MY SKIN TONE WHEN I WAS LITTLE. AND I REMEMBER GROWING ASHAMED OF IT, HATEFUL OF IT, HATEFUL TOWARD OTHER BLACK PEOPLE. THIS HAPPENED TO ME. THIS ISN’T SOME DISTANT THING THAT HAPPENS ELSEWHERE.
White supremacy makes black children hate themselves and one another. And it takes a lot of work to decolonize one’s mind after that’s taken root.
And you know what? That’s the whole fucking point. We’re not supposed to love ourselves or each other. Because, according to Western society, WE ARE WORTHLESS.
