“I wanted to say, ‘Hey ladies, you’re beautiful,’. Hopefully, this changes things and maybe it won’t change things, but I love it.” - Nicki Minaj on the Anaconda music video
Wait…when is anybody glorifying the less curvy body?
guurrrllll, they really are. and it catches you off guard, but its there
this is just a little sus. I want to fully agree but I’d love the musical references that support this claim :)
I feel like she was hinting at miley cyrus, iggy azalea, and other lames like them. i’m also thinking about how in her video, all of the women are curvy and thick in all the right places. i would love to have some big girls in there cuz dudes are glorifying curvy bodies, skinny bodies, but never fat bodies.
but ykno that’s my own agenda n such.
yeah and hinting at the whole, ya know Eurocentric idea of beauty in america, like dafuq

Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”
I’d be curious what any trans follower feel or think in response to this news. I don’t know very much about what kind of laws will/won’t be helpful to trans people so any info would be helpful, if you’re up to it.
