Found this little guy outside of a Mexican restaurant last night. His name is Queso
THAT THING LOOKS LIKE A DEMON, WHY WOULD YOU NAME HIM AFTER CHEESE?
IT IS OBVIOUSLY A BLACK FLOOF AND HAS/WILL NEVER HURT A SOUL. DID YOU EVEN LOOK AT IT?!???!

THIS IS SO FUCKING IMPORTANT!
black ballerina excellence
So gorgeous and elegant
Why is this important? i see a girl doing ballet, stop outlining difference, its important we just admire the skills, and afore mentioned ellegance
First of all shut the fuck up and have several seats
and heres why in Michaela’s own words what she had to go through being BLACK and still goes through
When she was around 8 and rehearsing for The Nutcracker, just a few days before the performance she was told, “I’m sorry, you can’t do it. America’s not ready for a black girl ballerina.”
For Michaela, “to say this to an 8-year-old is just devastating. It was terrible.”
When she was 9, a teacher told her mother: “I don’t like to put money into black dancers because they grow up and end up having big boobs and big hips.”
The dancer looked down at her petite figure and protested, “I don’t have boobs. I don’t get it.”
Instead of getting her down, “It makes me more determined,” she said. “Because I’ve been through so much, I know now that I can make it and I can help other kids who have been in really bad situations realize that they can make it too.”
This is why it is important, for little Black girls to see a black ballerina made it despite being discriminated against because of her skin color!!!
GUYS GUYS GUYS
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY WAS LITERALLY WRITTEN BY A FEMALE ROCKET SCIENTIST
SHE’S THE FIRST WOMAN TO EVER WRITE A MARVEL MOVIE
WHY IS THIS NOT GETTING TALKED ABOUT
I did not realize this. This is good.
No one is more excited than I am that a woman finally got a credit for a Marvel movie, but she has a degree in film and dramatic writing. She’s on a committee to encourage writers to learn real science for scifi, but she’s not actually a rocket scientist.
Ooh, updated info! Thanks!
Adding to this, if anyone’s interested: at SDCC last weekend, one of the panels I went to was a “Women in Sci-Fi” panel that included a host of women writers in TV/film/comics, including Jane Espenson and Nicole Perlman, the woman who wrote GOTG. She talked about how she got the project in the first place, which was really interesting to me, and I think the info would be interesting to people who are wondering about the process of how Marvel even came across GOTG.
Basically, at some point a few years ago, Marvel brought her and a bunch of other writers in and handed them ideas for a bunch of properties (both well known and not well known) that they were considering making films for. She picked GOTG because it had those elements of sci-fi and science, which is what she loved and knew, as opposed to other well known entities (and no, she didn’t specify what they were.) Anyway, everyone picked their project and squirreled themselves away for about two years working on them, and then Marvel went through the scripts and picked the one they thought was the best to develop it further. And it was hers.
I’m super, super excited for this film, and even moreso after hearing her speak on this panel, which was really inspiring in a lot of ways. While there are people will probably still be upset we’re getting a film about space misfits over a BW film or something, it’s worth it to remember that this film was actually chosen BECAUSE Perlman was an awesome female writer who managed to catch everyone’s eye and wrote a really, really good script.
Damn, this post just gets better and better.
