I’m sick of magical worlds with no technology. I want fairy run coffee shops where you can get a latte with a shot of charisma, because you’ve got a big presentation you’re worried about, or witches working at Apple selling phones that automatically appear in your pocket if you accidentally leave it somewhere, or psychics running hair salons who always know how you want your hair to look, or aura reader therapists. I just really want normalized magic in modern society
Hey y’all I wanna tell you about a show called Jane The Virgin! It just aired it’s pilot episode on the CW, and you can watch the whole thing for free here.
The main character is a Latina woman named Jane who is in a steady relationship with her boyfriend, is working hard to get her teaching license, and has a strict plan she needs to stick to if she wants to achieve her goals. All of this is thrown off when at a GYNO appointment, instead of getting a PAP Smear, she mistakenly gets artificially inseminated.
POC who watch TV know that our stories get fucked up a lot. We’re soaked with racial tropes, dehumanized, are often reduced to being side characters as the white person’s funny/quiet/loud/over-the-top best friend, are often murdered, and a lot don’t even get the chance to be developed or have a back story.
This show is SO IMPORTANT because it gets it all right. It does a great job showing the real dynamics of a multigenerational POC household and everything that comes with it. Just in the pilot, each member of Jane’s family has depth and meaning. The relationships Jane has in and out of her family are real. Jane’s Latina heritage is not a side note, but instead is a prominent part of her story and the show. The tables are flipped when the virginal Latina woman is the protagonist and the conniving, manipulating sexual deviant is a white woman.
The show has huge Pushing Daisies/Ugly Betty vibes, a great cast, and I’m so looking forward to watching it every week and seeing where it goes.
THIS SHOW NEEDS TO DO WELL SO Y’ALL NEED TO WATCH IT, TOO.
Dentist pulled the tooth out yesterday. But it’s always a good idea to demonstrate to your coworkers that you are capable of withstanding a tremendous amount of pain.
Plus it’s always fun to see Tom faint.
Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.
People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.
I think we all needed this

oh just so everyone knows: if you’re like me and you get anxiety whenever you see someone vagueblogging because you think it’s about you even though you never did anything remotely similar to what’s being talked about, it is always okay to pop into my askbox and ask if i’m talking about you, and i’ll say “no” and i won’t be annoyed or anything no matter how often this happens.
the statistic is NOT “1 in 3 native women will be raped in their lifetime”
the real statistic is “1 in 3 native women will be raped AT LEAST ONCE in their lifetime”
this is a very important distinction to make please make it known im serious. also its worth noting that 70% of our rapes are carried out by colombus’ crew aka white men. murders also happen more at the hands of white men. this is all important information and im pissed it was ignored in that photoset
