Inception (2010) dir. Christopher Nolan
I’ll tell you a riddle. You’re waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you don’t know for sure. But it doesn’t matter. How can it not matter to you where that train will take you?

As a little girl growing up in Southside Jamaica Queens, if anyone would’ve told me I’d have my own perfume one day, and be able to inspire young black girls everywhere, to go into Macy’s or Nordstrom’s and see their face staring back at them - I wouldn’t believe them.
sometimes I can whip out a sweet essay in two hours and sometimes it takes me four tries to spell prevalent
a thin girl sings a song about how sexy she is, about how men always want her, about how men find her body sexy, and y’all are like “YAAAS!! QUEEN!! SLAY!!!! THIS SONG MAKES ME FEEL SO GOOD!!!”
but a fat girl sings “boys think fat bodies are sexy” and y’all are all like “Whoa. whoa. This is really heteronormative and is all about male gaze! Why can’t you be confident without relying on men? This is the opposite of body-positive! I dont like this at all!”
actually no. there’s an underlying difference between the two. the first one is saying something along the lines of “I’m sexy so men want me!” whereas all about that bass is about trying to validate that sexiness using the male’s gaze, as in — “it’s okay to feel sexy because men want that!”. there’s a huge difference.
it’s a metaphor, you see; you put the textbook in front of you, but you don’t give it the power to actually teach you anything
