A film about the parents of a five year old boy who wears a dress to a costume party. The other parents attending the party are not fond of the boy’s choice.
In the past year I have become increasingly aware of issues surrounding gender in our society. The internet has helped a great deal with educating me on several subjects. Tumblr has had a very big part in this. After all the education and understanding, I wanted to try and do something myself.
I decided to make a film. As a film student in his final year, making a short film is what I had to do to graduate. I decided on gender as the theme for my film. And now, a couple of months later, we have a script and are in full production to get it shot and edited.
I can really use some help with this project. And I truly believe it can be something more than just a very nice short film. So I’d like to ask YOU for help!
The link above is a link to the Indiegogo campaign. You can find out what exactly it’s about, how I plan to shoot it, what my goal is with the project, etc. Every contribution is much appreciated and helps us along.
But you can help in more ways than one. Share/Reblog this project. On Tumblr, but also Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc. You can help me make this the film it deserves to be, and very little thing you do is appreciated to reach the goal!
So to end this post: Thank you very much for any help you can offer!
I am rather disappointed at France. 25% of the population were in favor of the FN, the far-right wing. Voting far-right wing at the European elections is such a paradox, and I can’t believe that some people actually believed what Marine LePen (the party’s president) said.
Also, did you know that…
as much as everyone should be talking about the UC shootings and creating an online discussion about misogyny and gun control, please don’t forget that there was a shooting at a jewish museum in brussels today too.
let’s scream and shout about the war on women but - especially with regards to the EU elections - let’s scream and shout about the rise of anti-semitism in Europe too
Now try and tell me women overreact and that we have nothing to be afraid of. There are people supporting what this guy did, he killed innocent people because women had rejected him, because he wasn’t popular, because he was a virgin at 22. People are making excuses for him and his actions, women are being told that murder is what they should expect when they reject unwanted sexual advances. I should not be afraid for my life because I say no.
FUCK THIS GUY.
This is glorious and even thought it doesn’t fit in the range of all the paranormal, I MUST share
It works like this: You tell Kitestring that you’re in a dangerous place or situation, and give it a time frame of when to check in on you. If you don’t reply back when it checks your status, it’ll alert your emergency contacts with a custom message you set up.
It doesn’t require you to touch anything (like bSafe) or shake your phone (like Nirbhaya) to send the distress signal. Kitestring is smarter, because it doesn’t need an action to alert people, it needs inaction.
reblogging because this is seriously amazing.
This video is so, so important. A Jewish girl, and a Muslim girl, both poets, deliver a powerful piece on stereotypes.
Forget what we’ve been indoctrinated to think by our parents, schools, communities, religions and governments. We are all human. Let’s be the generation of peace.
More Macklemore, less Robin Thicke.
And yet a huge percentage of Tumblr hates him. Not trying to be confrontational, but could someone please explain to me why this is?
Because he is a straight white guy and Tumblr isn’t always right.
oh my god if i have to see this post on my dashboard one more time
all right, okay. let’s talk.
last year on a slow day in law/society class, my teacher showed us a movie where charlize theron was one of the only female workers in a mine in minnesota. she experienced a fuckload of sexual harassment, ofc; it was when she started daring to complain about the sexual harassment that shit got really bad.
i remember watching charlize theron go through all these awful things, and i remember getting vaguely invested in her as a heroine; yeah, you go charlize theron, you continue to work despite these harassment and assaults, you stand up for yourself when people shun you in the community, etc
and there was this climactic scene where the miners’ union was having a meeting, and charlize theron was going up to complain about something or tell people she was suing the company or smth, i can’t remember, and she stood there in front of this huge crowd of angry men who were booing her and catcalling her and shouting the worst things at her and she’s getting really miserable
and then her father, who also works at the mine, goes up and says “hey, you’re all jerks, think of your mothers & daughters, would you treat them this way,” and the miners are like “oh wow charlize theron totally does deserve our support etc” and then the movie continues
but all i could think was— what, so they’ll listen to a man but not to the woman who’s actually affected? why doesn’t charlize theron get to save the day and be the hero? in a conversation about sexism, why is his voice more important than hers?
we’re not mad at macklemore. or— well, we are mad at macklemore, but we’re more mad at the system that prioritizes macklemore over actual queer rappers, over actual rappers of color, who have been saying exactly the same shit for decades and been ignored.
we’re mad at the system that gives more attention to straight allies than queer activists.
we’re mad at the system that only supports queer rights when they are quiet and polite and have cute graphics.
we’re mad at the system that makes macklemore a hero of of the queer struggle but doesn’t know marsha p. johnson’s name.
we’re mad at the system that will listen to macklemore when he comes to defend us— but won’t listen to us.
we’re mad at the system that has constructed itself to make damn certain that only straight cis white boys can be heroes.
it’s fuckin’ great that macklemore thought he was gay in third grade. but the system would rather give his third grade gay freakout the spotlight than our actual whole-life queer experiences— and that’s not okay.
