Love Moko. Her song Your Love is addicting, and her style is so pretty. Just felt like she’d make a great Sailor Moon. Also was inspired by Asieybarbie’s sailor moon redraws as well when doing this.

I’m gonna cry because I love Moko too and I love Sailor Moon and this is absolute perfection and everyone should just SEE THIS THEN LIKE IT IMMEDIATELY OK.

Eddie Murphy at the 60th Academy Awards in 1988

I had to cut this speech down to be able to fit it into a gifset so I uploaded the full thing to youtube and recommend checking it out for yourself.

I never knew this happened. Thank you for doing this.

Sometimes you gotta be that person to make things awkward because it’s necessary

I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”

- Sacheen Littlefeather in Reel Injun (2009), dir. Neil Diamond.

They were MAD, CONFUSED AND PRESSED that Marlon Brando would betray White Supremacy in this way.

To this very day, they are TWISTED over this.

And when Littlefeather got up there and READ THEM FOR FILTH, they GAGGED. For eons.

So I imagine there are people like me out there who’ve never even heard of Marlon Brando and are extremely confused over why this is important.

Marlon Brando was the Don in The Godfather, and in 1973, he was nominated for and won an Academy Award for it. However, he was also a huge Natives rights activist, and boycotted the ceremony because he felt that Hollywood’s depictions of Native Americans in the media led to the Wounded Knee Incident (which I was always taught as “the second massacre at Wounded Knee” but apparently that’s not the real name). He sent Sacheen Littlefeather, an Apache Native rights activist, in his stead. Wikipedia’s article on her explains the rest:

Brando had written a 15-page speech for Littlefeather to give at the ceremony, but when the producer met her backstage he threatened to physically remove her or have her arrested if she spoke on stage for more than 60 seconds.[5] Her on-stage comments were therefore improvised. She then went backstage and read the entire speech to the press. In his autobiography My Word is My BondRoger Moore (who presented the award) claims he took the Oscar home with him and kept it in his possession until it was collected by an armed guard sent by the Academy.

That is what this gifset is about.

You have GOT to read up on this. The Wounded Knee Incident, Marlon Brando and Sacheen Littlefeather, Anna Mae Aquash. ALL OF IT.

quote

Women and young girls are assaulted, raped, and killed everyday… All because they said no or did not make themselves more available to men…

YET all you have to say is “Not all men”

Not only are you disregarding all of the facts..all of the proof that men have the power to do horrific things when rejected or denied, but you are placing the blame on the oppressed… You are telling victims that they are not entitled enough to fear you.. How dare they fear YOU…even if they have every right to do so.
You are getting into their heads… making them second guess themselves.
Making them believe that the uncomfortable situations they were forced into could have been avoided if they had just accepted the advances.. Or that every single situation is harmless and should not be viewed as the same or with the same caution…. Because being cautious is offensive to you.

How selfish is that? To tell someone that their safety doesn’t matter because catcalls and street harassment are expected and part of the norm… That it’s flattering and not harmful…Because boys will be boys…

When you bring life to that phrase “not all men ” you are saying
“I am aware of the dangers that women face at the hands of men…..but I’m not willing to fix the issue or advocate for it.. But what I AM willing to do is point the blame in any direction other than my own..”

"I don’t truly care about women at all.."

— "not all men" is irrelevant (via black—lamb)
