In which Jimmy Fallon nails it.
AKA Why Representation Matters.(via thebicker)
When I was playing Mystique in X-Men, I remember thinking, If I’m going to be naked in paint in front of the entire world, I’m going to look like a woman. I’m going to have curves and have boobs and have a butt. Because girls are going to look at that, and if I look like a scarecrow, they are going to think, Oh, that’s normal. It’s not normal. I’m just so sick of these young girls with diets. I remember when I was 13 and it was cool to pretend to have an eating disorder because there were rumors that Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie were anorexic. I thought it was crazy. I went home and told my mom, “Nobody’s eating bread, I just had to finish everyone’s burgers”. I think it’s really important for girls to have people to look up to and feel good about themselves.
women smh. they like different things and have different interests. why do some women like a thing and other women not like it? so difficult to understand. so confusing and hypocritical when one woman says one thing and another woman says another thing that disagrees. almost as if women are not a hivemind but are human beings just like men. ugh
You are not where you are from, but rather where you are going.
