On March 8th activists celebrate International Women’s Day, which dates back to the early 20th century and has been observed by the United Nations since 1975.
In the run-up to the event, Reuters photographers in countries around the globe took a series of portraits of women and their daughters. They asked each mother what her profession was, at what age she had finished education, and what she wanted her daughter to become when she grew up.
They also asked each daughter at what age she would finish education and what she wanted to do in the future. The series of images offers an insight into the lives of women and girls around the world. (REUTERS)
What did I say? Did I not say this was dark-sided?
how about putting some POC on your show?
Can I get a black/brown person thats not a damn barbarian/slave or lying snake? How bout that for drawing my attention?
Does ANYBODY of color work at HBO? Like, this is the classic example of Missing the Point(TM). Wow, that they think to draw in more Black/Latino people is to use Hip-Hop and not cast them in diverse and significant roles in their programming, or hire them to write shows, or direct shows, or run shows, is really all kinds of problematic and why nearly 75% of their viewership is white. Don’t act like that concerns you when you pull nonsense like this, HBO. I mean seriously.
FUCK YOU HBO. FUCK YOU.
how about they cast the martells correctly
how about they not erase powerful woc from the books (i.e. chataya & alayaya)
how about they not whitewash characters, kill off the people they made poc who have their white counterparts STILL alive in the books (Daxos)
how about they stop turning dany into a messianic character when her actions are liberal imperialism (where the imperialism is justified because it’s “for the best”) and dany is NOT some pure and noble character, she just isn’t
