Why is the blame for romanticizing mental illness lodged at teenage girls documenting/trying to cope with their struggles with mental illness and not grown men who make movies about how medication is evil and schizophrenia is magic powers.

I’m just gonna reblog this every time I see it.

Also using autism as plot device for “super genius” deus ex machina tropes, and thereby dehumanizing them as only useful for their savant skill.



Jessica Simpson’s video for With You might actually be the worst music video of all time. It’s a wonder we made it out of 2003 alive. Background for the youngins: Jessica Simpson was a singer who had, like, moderate success, I guess, but then she did a reality show with her husband Nick Lachey, who was in a boy band called 98 Degrees, which had, like, moderate success.

So basically you’ve got two vaguely successful pop stars and you watch them live their life. Essentially, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey were trying to paint themselves as the next Super Couple that was all the rage around this time, and this reality show was supposed to help propel their music careers as well. 

But it turned out they were really trashy and Jessica Simpson was not too bright. She didn’t know the difference between chicken and tuna. Anyway, the single With You was supposed to be the big pop anthem about their life together where she talks about how she’s just goofy because she’s finally in love enough to be comfortable around someone. The video forces her goofy down-to-earth-ness so far down the viewers throats, I, to this day, can’t watch this video without cringing, saying aloud, “Alright, I get it, you’re a simple girl with simple tastes. Please stop this.” It was such a painful promotional tool.

  1. Video starts with an establishing shot of the house used in the reality show.
  2. Pan to Jessica Simpson laughing by herself at her overuse of dish soap, possibly drowning a small animal.
  3. She’s wearing a shirt that says “plata-ma-pus,” her pronunciation of the word platypus as demonstrated on an episode of her reality show. She’s also doing a lot of weird stuff with her face.
  4. Stop laughing. What are you laughing at?
  5. She seems really confused as to how to get the suds off her gloves.
  6. She shakes the suds off and then steps on them, I guess to make sure they’re dead.
  7. Why are you holding that plant? You’re washing dishes. Plants are not involved.
  8. She cannot, if her life was on the line, figure out how to use a fucking Swiffer.
  9. She puts the glove in her mouth, the glove she was using to do all her chores. That’s disgusting. This whole video is disgusting.
  10. I don’t like the way she’s looking at me. It makes me really uncomfortable.
  11. Pan to a picture of her and Nick Lachey, because we need another reminder of their reality show. Nick looks like he physically can’t stand being in close proximity to Jessica Simpson, and who among us could?
  12. Jessica Simpson is now on her couch eating tuna, or maybe it’s chicken.
  13. She takes a bite of the chicken tuna and can’t help but giggle at all the money she’s making right now.
  14. She tries to seduce an empty room.
  15. Stop looking at me like that.
  16. I’ll admit I don’t have a clue as to what she’s doing in the closet.
  17. She throws all her clothes on the floor and writhes around in them.
  18. Wait, I think she’s doing laundry, but I guess she couldn’t figure out how to get the clothes from the floor into the hamper. Have you tried using the Swiffer?
  19. She stuffs a bunch of clothes in her purse.
  20. Next, she’s sitting on the floor staring at a plate of BBQ chicken (or tuna). She bats her eyelashes at the gigantic pile of BBQ chicken (or tuna), holding it up, offering the viewer some.
  21. She careers the BBQ chicken.
  22. She’s literally singing to the BBQ chicken now.
  23. Stop laughing. There’s nothing funny about whatever is wrong with you.
  24. She sings into a boot.
  25. She sings into the BBQ chicken.
  26. Now she’s next to the pool with a golf club and for the love of god someone get that away from her before she kills someone.
  27. She’s wearing a t-shirt that says “Stinky Ass” in reference to a farting scene in her reality show.
  28. She gropes herself twice. Not sure why. Maybe to check if she still exists.
  29. She flicks her underwear at the camera. She finds this hilarious.
  30. She puts a pair of underwear on her face. Also hilarious. Wait, she threw those at the camera too, like it’s all a big joke to her.

Gandhi Spreads Racial Hatred of Africans

Gandhi was passionately prejudiced towards black Africans, as clearly displayed by his own writings over his 21-year stint in Gandhi’s writings during his 20 years in South Africa. He promoted racial hatred, in theory, and campaigned for racial segregation, in practice. In his newspaper, The Indian Opinion, he frequently wrote diatribes against the black community. Of particular concern to him was any contact between Indians and Africans. The following series of quotes, which is but a small selection of his extensive writings on the topic, documents Gandhi’s intense hatred for equal treatment of blacks and Indians, whether in culture or under the law. Indeed, his efforts to improve the status of the Indian community in South Africa were primarily focused on ensuring Africans were treated worse than Indians. His goal, thus was greater social inequality rather than universal equality.

All quotes taken from Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi (CWMG).

Sept. 26, 1896: “Ours is one continual struggle against a degradation sought to be inflicted upon us by the Europeans, who desire to degrade us to the level of the raw Kaffir* whose occupation is hunting, and whose sole ambition is to collect a certain number of cattle to buy a wife with and, then, pass his life in indolence and nakedness.” — Vol. 1, p. 410

Sept. 24, 1903: “We believe as much in the purity of race as we think they do… We believe also that the white race of South Africa should be the predominating race.” — Vol. 3, p. 256

Feb. 15, 1904: “Under my suggestion, the Town Council must withdraw the Kaffirs from the Location. About this mixing of the Kaffirs with the Indians, I must confess I feel most strongly. I think it is very unfair to the Indian population.” — Vol. 3, p. 429

Sept. 5, 1905: “The decision to open the school for all Coloured children is unjust to the Indian community, and is a departure from the assurance given… that the school will be reserved for Indian children only.” — Vol. 4, p. 402

Sept. 2, 1907: “From these views expressed by a White we have a lesson to learn: We must encourage the Whites too. It is a short-sighted policy to employ, through sheer niggardliness, a Kaffir for washing work. If we keep in view the conditions in this country and patronize the Whites, whenever proper and necessary, then every such White will serve as an advertisement for the Indian trader.” — Vol. 6, p. 276

Feb. 29, 1908: “The British rulers take us to be so lowly and ignorant that they assume that, like the Kaffirs who can be pleased with toys and pins, we can also be fobbed off with trinkets.” — Vol. 8, p. 167

Mar. 7, 1908: “We were all prepared for hardships, but not quite for this experience. We could understand not being classed with the whites, but to be placed on the same level with the Natives seemed too much to put up with.” — Vol. 8, p. 198

Mar. 7, 1908: “Kaffirs are as a rule uncivilised – the convicts even more so…. The reader can easily imagine the plight of the poor Indian thrown into such company!” — Vol. 8, p. 199

Jan. 16, 1909: “I have, though, resolved in my mind on an agitation to ensure that Indian prisoners are not lodged with Kaffirs…. I observed with regret that some Indians were happy to sleep in the same room as the Kaffirs…. This is a matter of shame to us. We may entertain no aversion to Kaffirs, but we cannot ignore the fact that there is no common ground between them and us in the daily affairs of life.” — Vol. 9, p. 257

Jan. 23, 1909: “I acquainted the Governor with what had happened and told him there was urgent need for separate lavatories for Indians. I also told him that Indian prisoners should never be lodged with Kaffirs. The Governor immediately issued an order for a lavatory for Indians to be sent on from the Central Gaol. Thus, from the next day the difficulty about lavatories disappeared.” — Vol. 9, p. 270

June 5, 1909: “I received from General Smuts two books on religion, and I inferred from this that it was not under his orders that I had been subjected to hardships, but that it was the result of his negligence and that of others, as also a consequence of the fact that we are equated with the Kaffirs.” — Vol. 9, p. 355

Dec. 2, 1910: “Some Indians do have contacts with Kaffir women. I think such contacts are fraught with grave danger. Indians would do well to avoid them altogether.” — Vol. 10, p. 414

The term “Kaffir” is a pejorative South African term for black people which is equivalent to the ‘n’ word. Use of this term has been a criminal offense in South Africa since 1975. Despite always using it to describe black Africans, Gandhi was fully aware of the offensive nature of the word. This is demonstrated by Gandhi’s comment during a religious conflict in India, when he said: “If ‘Kaffir’ is a term of opprobrium, how much more so is Chandal?” [CWMG, Vol. 28, p. 62] “Chandal” is a racist term for low-caste Hindus.

Up to a couple years ago all I heard was the “good” side of Gandhi.. Good to know though


Fuck him too
