Finding pictures of myself online where I’ve been photoshopped to look thinner, but the post claims to be about body positivity.
I think they missed the point.
I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”
- Sacheen Littlefeather in Reel Injun (2009), dir. Neil Diamond.
They were MAD, CONFUSED AND PRESSED that Marlon Brando would betray White Supremacy in this way.
To this very day, they are TWISTED over this.
And when Littlefeather got up there and READ THEM FOR FILTH, they GAGGED. For eons.
So I imagine there are people like me out there who’ve never even heard of Marlon Brando and are extremely confused over why this is important.
Marlon Brando was the Don in The Godfather, and in 1973, he was nominated for and won an Academy Award for it. However, he was also a huge Natives rights activist, and boycotted the ceremony because he felt that Hollywood’s depictions of Native Americans in the media led to the Wounded Knee Incident (which I was always taught as “the second massacre at Wounded Knee” but apparently that’s not the real name). He sent Sacheen Littlefeather, an Apache Native rights activist, in his stead. Wikipedia’s article on her explains the rest:
Brando had written a 15-page speech for Littlefeather to give at the ceremony, but when the producer met her backstage he threatened to physically remove her or have her arrested if she spoke on stage for more than 60 seconds. Her on-stage comments were therefore improvised. She then went backstage and read the entire speech to the press. In his autobiography My Word is My Bond, Roger Moore (who presented the award) claims he took the Oscar home with him and kept it in his possession until it was collected by an armed guard sent by the Academy.
That is what this gifset is about.
You have GOT to read up on this. The Wounded Knee Incident, Marlon Brando and Sacheen Littlefeather, Anna Mae Aquash. ALL OF IT.
What a fucking brave woman.

It’s true what he says though - there is no subject position from which it’s ok to talk about inequality - if you’re poor you are doing it out of jealously, if you’re not poor you’re doing it out of guilt/saviour complex, if you are young it’s just a phase, if you’re old you are hankering for times long gone and trying to recapture your youth, if you’re not well educated you just don’t understand the complexity of the situation, if you are well educated you’re in an academic bubble divorced from reality, if your politically apathetic you’re not allowed to complain, if you’re politically active you’re just trying to push your own sectarian agenda…
For every possible type of person there’s an established reason why your opinions on inequality are invalid. That’s not an accident.
Relevant, and important to understand.

Really like how this came out. I wanted to try another variation , but my body did not want to stretch that way.
I love rainy days, with exception of today. Went on a bike ride this morning and it was completely clear, then all of sudden near noon it starts to pour.
at what point in history do you think americans stopped having british accents
Actually, Americans still have the original British accent. We kept it over time and Britain didn’t. What we currently coin as a British accent developed in England during the 19th century among the upper class as a symbol of status. Historians often claim that Shakespeare sounds better in an American accent.
I thought so too, person whom I don’t know.

Kulik Larissa aka AnnMei is an visual and digital artists from Ostrov, Russia. She has an expressive ambient, fantasy-like world. By manipulating and taking photo’s she creates her surrealism through photoshop and a tablet.
…I live in a small Russian town of Ostrov. In my childhood I dreamed to become an artist and finished a children’s art school. But in future I do not have the opportunity to engage in the arts. I got married and worked as all normal people.When grown children, a lot of free time ,and this time, I gave creative
It all started with the usual photos, which to me seemed boring, I wanted to make her something nice that would be to please their friends- then I don’t know that everything will be so seriously…
I always work with my favorite graphics editor PhotoshopCS3. Lots of time I spent for the monitor, examining the program – it was very difficult. But then I realized that I need to work very few tools : eraser, clone,smudge,dodge and burn tool. also, I take corrective layers(Adjustment Layer). For work I use only high quality fotos and very well cut out all the things. It is so seamless picture. But most importantly in the work – the idea and composition – this is the most difficult….
