On why Donald Trumps so-called run for presidency was a joke no one should have given any attention. Talking right at you, news media!

“The Untitled Black Lesbian Elder Project,” which will highlight several black lesbian women in their 60s, 70s and 80s, talking about their experiences.

The documentary will be a collaborative effort between filmmaker Tiona McClodden and Lisa C. Moore, publisher of Red Bone Press, which publishes books by black gay and lesbian authors. It’s fitting that Moore is one of the masterminds behind this project, since she saw Red Bone as a way to cultivate understanding between black queer culture and black mainstream culture when other publishers said there was “no market” for that kind of work.

Then I thought, “There’s no reason why we should limit ourselves to Black romance. Why don’t we take on all the rom com bullshit? Let’s subvert the fuck out of what this cliche-ridden drivel shovels to us about sex, love, and romance!”

Take something you hate about rom-coms, then flip the script and make it something awesome!

I don’t really have particularly thinky thoughts about this. It’s just something I felt I needed to flag. I think I’m too sickened and angry right now to get very thinky. I guess the central thought I have is that this is wrong. This can’t be excused, it can’t be right. No one should want to see this. And yet, apparently, the rape of delicate blonde women seems to be something that Starz, HBO and Showtime assume their viewers want to watch. The aesthetic of Camelot and Game of Thrones is particularly sickening - they give us rape with soft lighting.

While I love fantasy novels, I’m a Black woman and I can’t help but get a little sad, that I always feel just a little bit out of place as a fan and reader. And not because we don’t show up. But because when we do, we are murderers, thieves, prostitutes. Or in other words, we are on the periphery, in the margins. And if I wanted that I would just watch the evening news.

Inherent in these observations of the film industry are powerful messages about what it means to be female in the United States. In this “post-feminist” era, where we are frequently told the problems of girls are yesterday’s news – that girls are awash in the largesse of civil rights, and it is boys who really require our attention — it is worthwhile to consider the comments of these executives and writers. Perhaps because this article is about an industry, rather than society itself, and because the film business seems both powerful and trivial, can it say such jaw-dropping things about the sexist ways women are treated, talked about and portrayed.

And while they continue to hemorrhage financially, they still refuse to acknowledge that POCs can make an impact—even though we’ve proven it time and time and time again—and will make the flimsiest excuses to justify why POCs shouldn’t be visible in the media and why our dollars don’t count. Excuses I’m about to debunk and with this post.

It is with great pride that pleasure that I am able to join you here today to announce the passage of House Resolution 217, better known as No Gender Left Behind, a comprehensive plan for gender reform.

I know I am never going to reach the people who are genuinely cruel and are just using concern as an excuse to exercise that cruelty. This is for the friends, family members, and loved ones who genuinely want to be kind, want to help us, want to find the right tactic to make us understand why we must lose weight and how to do so.
