glitterlion:

So you have Seth MacFarlane sexualizing 9 year old Quvenzhané Wallis with the joke:

just to put it into perspective how young quvenzhane wallis is, it will be sixteen years before she’s too old for george clooney

You have The Hollywood Reporter feeling the need to publish the “brutally honest” ramblings of an Oscar voter who stated that they wouldn’t vote for Quvenzhané because they couldn’t pronounce her name.

I also don’t vote for anyone whose name I can’t pronounce. Quvez—-? Quzen—-? Quyzenay? Her parents really put her in a hole by giving her that name — Alphabet Wallis. The truth is, it’s a very sweet but immature performance from a 9-year-old. I’ve directed children. They probably did a thousand takes and put the best ones together.”

And it’s not limited to this one person.

And you have the Onion calling Quvenzhané Wallis a “cunt” because that’s apparently what everyone is thinking.

And I’m sure you can imagine what other lovely tidbits are floating around the interwebs from the white folks who outraged at the fact that she’s going to be playing Annie. Oh wait.

As Quvenzhané becomes more and more prominent in the media, the vitriol and ridiculousness will grow and become more prevalent and more targeted. I can only imagine what things I could find if I actually devoted time to trolling the internet or what words will be written when promotional media starts coming out for Annie.

And we’re supposed to believe that their isn’t an attack on Black women and girls in this country/world.

uh huh. okay.

love love love:

♥ Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials;
♥ Margaret Atwood (especially the Mad Adam series & The Handmaid's Tale);
♥ The Hunger Games;
♥ The X-Files;
♥ (Mostly) everything Joss Whedon; and
♥ Unicorns, narwhals, time travel & zombies (not necessarily in that order).

Also, I'd rather pretend that season 6 of Lost never happened, and that Alias ended with the 2003 Superbowl episode.
