Nicki Minaj is not a woman who easily slides into the roles assigned to women in her industry or elsewhere. She’s not polished, she’s not concerned with her reputation, and she’s certainly not fighting for equality among mainstream second-wave feminists. She’s something else, and she’s something equally worth giving credence to: a boundary-breaker, a nasty bitch, a self-proclaimed queen, a self-determined and self-made artist. She’s one of the boys, and she does it with the intent to subvert what it means. She sings about sexy women, about fucking around with different men. She raps about racing ahead in the game, imagines up her own strings of accolades, and rolls with a rap family notorious for dirty rhymes, foul mouths, and disregard for authority and hegemony.
While Beyoncé has expanded feminist discourse by reveling in her role as a mother and wife while also fighting for women’s rights, Minaj has been showing her teeth in her climb to the top of a male-dominated genre. Both, in the process, have expanded our society’s idea of what an empowered women looks like — but Minaj’s feminist credentials still frequently come under fire. To me, it seems like a clear-cut case of respectability politics and mainstreaming of the feminist movement: while feminist writers raved over Beyoncé’s latest album and the undertones of sexuality and empowerment that came with it, many have questioned Minaj’s decisions over the years to subvert beauty norms using her own body, graphically talk dirty in her work, and occasionally declare herself dominant in discourse about other women. (All of these areas of concern, however, didn’t seem to come into play when Queen Bey did the same.)"30th SeptemberSource: Nicki Minaj’s Feminism Isn’t About Your Comfort Zone: On “Anaconda” and Respectability Politics | Autostraddle (via becauseiamawoman)Reblogged from: femscum+18,164 notesnicki minajfeminismqueen nicki
"The key is dedication. I didn’t really have to diet. I’m pretty skinny naturally. So for the most part, when I try to get big, I have to eat everything.”
- Chris Evans, on how he got ‘big’ for the role of Captain America (x)

ARE WE NOT GOING TO DISCUSS HOW SHE FOLDED HER HIJABS TO LOOK LIKE THE HAIR OF THE CHARACTER, THAT IS SUCH A LOVELY AND GREAT IDEA. OHMYGOD
UGH SHE IS SO CUTE AND ADORABLE AND THE THING WITH THE HIJABS IS SUPER COOL BECAUSE IT LOOKS ACCURATE TO THE CHARACTERS AND CAN LEGIT INSPIRE MUSLIM COSPLAYERS.
Couldn’t Muslim cosplayers still cosplay without hijabs as long as their hair was covered, like with a long wig? I’ve wondered this for a while.Reblogged from: aterribleterriblefate+72,414 notes
IF this is ALL they left, this is violence.
It’s some Christians imposing THEIR religious beliefs on you,
While bucking the unwritten, unspoken social contract to tip waitstaff for their service.
I’ve actually had this happen to me before when I worked at Red Lobster. Some guy left his business card and wrote on the back that I should apply for a real job instead of “begging for tips”.
I should have pissed in his drink.
