actual queen alb calling out bullshit once again
This is the one time I’m gonna disagree with her (ironically the song just turned on the radio behind me). She literally said “tell those skinny bitches that, just playing I know y’all think you’re fat, but I’m here to tell you you’re perfect from the bottom to the top”. Amazing what happens when you take things out of context, isn’t it?
I’m not a “size 2” but by most people’s standards I am relatively thin. I think I span around a size 4 or 6 in US Junior’s, if not a 5 or 7 in US Women’s clothing. Not at all “big”. Growing up I was a bit chunkier (not really, but compared to friends who were 0’s for more than 2 months I felt like it) and I didn’t have any appreciation for that. Hearing this song actually made me smile, “skinny bitches” and all. The language could’ve been different but I’m not one to necessarily complain about things I use all the time unless it’s overloaded with sexist commentary on the whole.
The whole “a little more booty” comment was in reference to something which her mother (whether factually or not, but I’m assuming factual given her mother’s support of the video from the BTS reel) told her as a child. The entire chorus is literally"you’re perfect from the bottom to the top", which she alsosaid in reference to the skinny girls who, even fi they are thin, are generally still led to believe they’re too big.
She had girls of different sizes in her video, including two taller, thinner women (one of whom was not the “model” role) and the 3 “faceless” dancers who were doing the backup singing throughout. It was hardly demonizing of or ostracizing towards thinner women.
This just seems like another reason for skinny / thin women to readjust the attention to themselves instead of accepting that in general the “body positive” movement was created because of unrealistic standards which tend to favor us > bigger women, and that sometimes ‘empowerment’ doesn’t mean complacent acceptance of sugar-coated language that doesn’t make us consider the fact that a lot of women are constantly put down explicitly because they aren’t more lean, thin, or skinny body types.

White people can’t even let black anime characters prosper.
when i was in college we had to fill out the census & when it came to race we were confused too so we asked the (white) guy who was there for help. He “explained” how " all hispanics" are mixed with spanish and how we are “white” bc of our european ties & was adamant about us marking white. we ended up putting 'other'. We thought the whole thing was weird so we asked one of our chican@ studies professors &
our professor told us that the government gives us a “forced choice” to make whites appear as a majority
yup ur professor sounds right. its supposed to make white ppl feel better in numbers bc ive met so many white boys trying to tell me “technically ur white” like ok first of all who are you cos i cant even see you
Idk how true this is beacuse I don’t have any sources to support myself but I heard once that when people mark “other” ir tends to go towards the “white” category. -m

Members of the Red Warriors, an antifascist gang in France, 1985. Red Warriors used violent force to remove Neo Nazi gangs from France and provide safe spaces for immigrants during the rise of white nationalism and an outbreak of violent crime against people of colour. They formed a squat called “L.U.S.I.N.E” and were consideredthe most effective gang to counter nazi violence, working to instill fear in their opposition.
