I love Lupita Nyong’o. I do. But I am uncomfortable with her image.

Red, the blood of angry uteruses
Black, your eye when you ask if I’m on my period
i hate people who take posts like “black ladies are beautiful” and say “YOU MEAN EVERYONE IS BEAUTIFUL”
its like showing up to a little celebratory function for an unappreciated tech crew of a movie and going “DONT U THINK THE ACTORS ARE IMPORTANT TOO???”
son the actors already have the red carpet and four billion dollars sit down
I don’t hate you because you’re cis, I hate you because you’re a creepy oppressive douchefuck who won’t even acknowledge it so you can deal with it
I’m fucking angry and full of love and feminism has given me too much fucking life for me to watch it be desecrated by fools and heathens
