“No one sings songs for sad black girls. There’s no national outcry when black boys kills themselves due to bullying. Black tears don’t conjure feelings of empathy. No one writes love on the arms of black people.”—
“I’ve told the kids in the ghettos that violence won’t solve their problems, but then they ask me, and rightly so; “Why does the government use massive doses of violence to bring about the change it wants in the world?” After this I knew that I could no longer speak against the violence in the ghettos without also speaking against the violence of my government”—
“…But what the word “feminist” does do is acknowledge the very long history of the women’s rights movement. I agree with what [Joss Whedon is] saying: It should just be assumed men and women are equally important and equally capable—but it’s not, and it hasn’t been for thousands of years. So, “feminism” and being a “feminist” is an acknowledgement of that history and the culture we’ve lived in for a long time. It’s a reaction to that, but for me, that’s an important acknowledgement to make.”—JOSEPH GORDON LEVITT SPOUTING SO MUCH TRUTH (via carolineeand)
“Spiderman represents the everyman, but he represents the underdog and those marginalized who come up against great prejudice which I, as a middle-class straight, white man, don’t really understand so much. When Stan Lee first wrote and created this character, the outcast was the computer nerd, was the science nerd, was the guy that couldn’t get the girl. Those guys now run the world. So how much of an outcast is that version of Peter Parker anymore? That’s my question.”—Andrew Garfield’s Fucking Epic response to the backlash on his suggestion of a bisexual Spider-Man | http://comicsalliance.com/andrew-garfield-spider-man-gay-stan-lee-marvel/?trackback=tsmclip (via buried-and-breathing-in-regret)

“You’re going to have people who are going to say ‘Oh, you know like, she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends’ and I think frankly that’s a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says it about Bruno Mars. They’re all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love-life, and no one raises a red flag there.”—Taylor Swift on some peoples views on her songwriting (x)
