While many cheered the NFL’s move to (finally) punish Rice’s vicious behavior, too many media outlets immediately fell into a tired pattern of victim blaming.
Writer Beverly Gooden had heard enough. “I was watching the responses to the TMZ on my timeline, and I noticed a trend. People were asking ‘why did she marry him?’ and ‘why didn’t she leave him,’” Gooden told Mic. “When I saw those tweets, my first reaction was shame. The same shame that I felt back when I was in a violent marriage. It’s a sort of guilt that would make me crawl into a shell and remain silent. But today, for a reason I can’t explain, I’d had enough. I knew I had an answer to everyone’s question of why victims of violence stay. I can’t speak for Janay Rice, I can only speak for me.”
this is my favourite version you cant stop me
THIS IS GREAT BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT WOULD IT WOULD HAVE ACTUALLY SOUNDED LIKE FROM LIKE— ELSE’A PERSPECTIVE OR SOME TINY UNNOTICEABLE FAIRY THAT MAKES NO SOUND
REMEMBER, WHEN DISNEY CHARACTERS BURST OUT INTO SONG THEY DONT HEAR THE MUSIC, JUST THEM AND WHATS HAPPENING AROUND THEM
AND THIS REALLY PUTS INTO PERSPECTIVE JUST HOW
fucking weird these assholes are i mean like seriously what the fuck
omg but no what I love is the fact that despite the fact that when the full soundtrack/instrumental is going you probably arent gonna really hear all the sound effects that are happening but they put them in anyway! We mostly don’t consciously notice ANY of the noises like the snow whistling as she builds, her crown whooshing when she throws it away, her motherfucking heels clacking on the floor but the motherfucking sound artists and their goatflipping producers decided to make the soundscape as authentic as possible DESPITE THE FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE WILL NEVER HEAR THOSE NOISES BECAUSE OF THE INSTRUMENTAL ACCOMPANIMENT! say what you want about Disney but there are some talented pencilmunchers in that bunch who are FUCKING DEDICATED TO THEIR ART
