I’m in ruins because of these two
"My body tells the story of my life, a map of my self discovery. My physicality has both protected me and isolated me. As a child, primary school was unkind to me. Growing up in a small country town where coming from a mixed-race family was alien, the racial tones were abundant, my thick black hair and my dark complexion were a dead giveaway that I was different, let alone my proud filipino mother. Emotionally too weak to deal with the racial slurs, my body responded and became my saviour. I learned to use my physicality as a means of defence. I was the kid so puffed up with aggression yet so full of pain…and I carried this peacock posture all the way through high school, making sure I was the biggest, strongest and angriest as a device to ward off the would be tormentors. Bruce Lee and Arnold Schwarzenegger hung on my wall, my inspiration to keep up the facade of the alpha male. My heroes…my idols. Both strong and indestructible. If there was a problem it was resolved with a clenched fist. I subscribed to this mentality and it served it’s purpose through my schooling years. However, when it came to dealing with the real issues that laid beneath my skin, I found it was the very same aggression that protected me, now hindered me. In retrospect, I was never happy with my body and I’m…I’m still not. I always felt uncomfortable in a change room or on swimming sports days. I would look at the other boys running around with their shirts off, absolutely oblivious to the discomfort that I was feeling. I didn’t want to take my shirt off. I was ashamed of what hid underneath it and I still live with that shame. My body is the story of my life…or so I thought. I began acting at University. I didn’t know why, I just knew that I loved it. Nowadays my reasons for the choice are much clearer. Acting for me is the ultimate escapism. It’s the chance to have a completely out of body experience and maybe it’s a chance for me to escape the unexplained shame…yet it isn’t. Mentally and emotionally, I may be able to transcend who I am but physically I can’t and this became glaringly obvious to me when I began working in the film and television industry."

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.
also, having spoken with both parents about the shitshow that is Lucy, we are all in full agreement that Luc Besson and the writers did absolutely zero research on Taiwan and that the movie is not worth our time or money.
like dad told me: they didn’t realize that Taiwan is one of the safest places in the world, below Sweden?
and the look on mom’s face was laugh-out-loud hilarious.
I hope to hell this movie tanks in Taiwan, if not everywhere.
#why I will never watch lucy#why you shouldn’t support lucy#because fuck luc besson and the creators for depicting my ancrestral homeland as a crime-ridden hellhole#and backdrop for your white heroine#all so she can murder Asian guys and be in the right because of authorial fiat#at least they’re not running the you speak English BS ad anymore#but they should be ashamed for having that scene in the movie#because it’s fucking ridiculous#that’s like being in the US and shooting someone in the head for not speaking Mandarin#except if Lucy shot the guy in the head she would be all over the news for it#because GUN CONTROL IS A THING over in Taiwan#if she’s so goddamn smart and superpowered#why didn’t she realize that she’d draw attention to herself that way#OH WAIT#THIS IS A MOVIE THAT COULDN’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT EVEN LOOKING AT THE WIKIPEDIA ENTRY ON TAIWAN#clearly my expectations are way too high here (via isanah)
I’m so fucking mad about this movie.
Because when I first heard “ScarJo gets superpowers” it sounded awesome.
But then everything about it was awful and racist and fucked up.
