TUESDAY AGAIN NO PROBLEM
The thing that kills me about “Ur So Gay” is that Katy isn’t singing about a boyfriend who actually turned out to be gay. She’s using “gay” as an insult, because the guy was effeminate, not conforming to her expected gender roles. She shames him for being thin and wearing makeup.
In the opening line of the song she says he should kill himself.
But, you know, baby you’re a firework or whatever.
"Turn left. You monster."
“Oh, you missed your turn. That’s alright. It’s not like I gave you an advanced warning or anything. Oh wait. I did. Three of them.”
“Now I have to recalculate the entire route. Again. By myself.”
“Congratulations. You’ve gotten us so lost even I don’t know where we are.” *slow clap*

i also find it extra fucking sketchy that the UN has reached out to Emma Watson who has no feminist credentials past playing a character she didn’t write and giving one speech but has not reached out to Beyonce who has built a shelter for homeless women put on a performance where only women were featured on stage and has written an essay on feminism
“If we don’t do something to fix the glaring inequities in this economy, the pitchforks are going to come for us. No society can sustain this kind of rising inequality. In fact, there is no example in human history where wealth accumulated like this and the pitchforks didn’t eventually come out. You show me a highly unequal society, and I will show you a police state. Or an uprising. There are no counterexamples. None. It’s not if, it’s when.”
