note to critics of the world: When you’re talking to African-American women, don’t use the tired “angry black woman” stereotype.
New York Times critic Alessandra Stanley, whose journalism career includes a laundry list of inaccuracies and errors, published a disgusting assessment of how Rhimes and her hit ABC series Scandal have changed the television landscape for black women.
"When Shonda Rhimes writes her autobiography," Stanley begins, "it should be called How to Get Away With Being an Angry Black Woman."
it’s so weird that men can make endless misogynistic comments and not have to reassure people that they don’t hate women but when women, especially those in the spotlight, talk about things concerning women they feel an overwhelming need to constantly reassure the world that they don’t hate men, that they love men.
and by weird i mean a cultural norm to demean women and overvalue men.

“The beauty of women and girls inspire me, I always do my best on each work. I try to be real. My style is the difference between the reality and my skills”
THEY ARE PAINTINGS?!?!
I have a weakness for gorgeous men who get adorably nervous around their ladies
This is the exact thing as when you’re trying to get white people to understand and sympathize with the struggles of people of color. You literally have to tell them: “What if that was you or your sister/brother/parent? What if you were in their shoes?” It’s not until they see themselves in that situation that they can have sympathy. Like I saw this ad for international aid a while ago where they had replaced the “poor starving african stereotype” with white people in some sort of pathetic attempt to make them feel bad. Is that what it takes for you to understand other people’s struggles? Seeing yourself in their place? You can’t just sympathize with them because you’re a human being with feelings?
Here’s the thing about being pro choice that people don’t get…
You don’t have to morally agree with abortion to be pro choice. That’s why it’s not called pro abortion. It’s an understanding that you can’t make that choice for someone else and they have full control over that not you. It’s pro I’m not the boss of everyone else.
This is important.

“It is still a drama and as much as we’d like to just have the two of them order pizza and watch Netflix, I think our fans – even though some of them would like to see that scene – would be bored.”
