doyouplaybasketball: How tall are you?

neutralize:

I recently measured this to make sure I knew exactly! I’m exactly 6’0.5” tall. I have been accused of being as tall as 6’4”, which was the biggest fucking eyeroll of my entire life*. I have also been accused of being as short s 5’9”, which was similarly absurd. 

* Fellow beautiful and powerful trans women, while we’re doing all this rad stuff around building stronger communication within our community, can we fucking stop the constant competition to see who in the room is shortest? It bores the absolute fuck out of me. I’m however tall you need me to be to feel your fucking best, sweetheart— I’m 6’10”, I’m two stories high, I’m actually a 50 foot woman bending down very far. You’re the daintiest gal in the room, so fucking relax. If I strike up a conversation about height, it’s because I myself am insecure about my height and would like to get your perspective on your own height. I’m not trying to strip you of your title as Most Delicate and Effortless Beauty on This Earth because I probably really do think you’re the most delicate and effortless beauty on this earth, and when you offer shady speculation about my body it can hurt. So stop it? Like stop it forever.

just think about y’all millions and millions of little dark skinned black girls are going to go to the supermarket with their parents this month and when they’re waiting in line at the check out aisle they’re going to look up and see Lupita Nyong’o being hailed as the most beautiful woman in the world god is amazing

Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision  in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion: 
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
