I have a lot of opinions on Zach Braff’s kickstarter (for the record, they are mostly identical to my opinion on the Veronica Mars kickstarter and that’s a show I love to death) but it’s really all pointless because fuck it, he’s going to get enough money to make his movie and that’s fine and I’m going to continue to struggle to pay rent and that’s fine too because that’s how life is supposed to go! And eventually I’ll probably illegally download the movie and watch ten minutes of it before I say “UGGHHHHHHH WHITE PEOPLE” and turn it off (and then later put it back on so I can liveblog my hatred all over the internet). So who cares! Really, all I want to know is why you guys are encouraging another story about a thirtysomething year old manchild (named Aidan. AIDAN!) trying to *find his identity* because holy shit, aren’t you sick of that shit? Wouldn’t you rather watch anything else than Zach Braff traipsing around in a robot space suit to a soundtrack of sad white dudes singing about how they feel about being sad white dudes?
Black women aren’t allowed to be attractive
By anyone’s standards
But bitches stay jocking their shit
Nails, hair, dance moves, language… pretty much everything
i think part…
Why? It’s an ignorant post to even begin with to call out other females that aren’t black for supposedly jocking their shit, do you know how big of a generalization that is , really ignorant
No, whats ignorant is ignoring the fact that for years & years black women’s style has been shit on and called “trashy” or “ghetto” but seeing it get praise when someone non-black does it.
Many of today’s popular dances have roots in Africa but black people were considered classless for doing them. Now non-black people like Miley Cyrus do it & it’s suddenly the best thing since sliced cheese.
Long nails with elaborate art may not have been invented by black women but it was popularized in our communities and we often got picked on for that too…and surprise surprise, non-black women are getting praised for it too.
Instead of taking it personally, why don’t you educate yourself?
And btw idgaf if you unfollow me, lol how old are you really
Black bitches are just mad that we do it better!
^^^ this girl just said black bitches are mad they do it better. Loooooooooooooool. That’s why you look like a gallon of mayo with some door knockers and acrylics stuck in that blob somewhere looool
^^^ This is some shit that I really want to be mindful of, because even though I am a Chicana WOC there are times that Whiteness embraces me at the expense of Black women: I was raised in a middle class environment, have US citizenship, have a non-Hispanic surname, speak unaccented English and have a White parent and so it’s possible sometimes for me to be accepted by structures that are anti-black racist.
There are SO many cool things that I want to embrace (appropriate?) and I recognize that some people feel that there’s no non-appropriative way for me to participate in certain things I want to do like trying to twerk, or using AAVE-based slang like “side-eye”, or taking advantage of the fact that amazing Black women have generated the majority of the best reaction.gifs on the internet, or wearing fashion styles popularized by Black women. I can’t say that I 100% avoid every action that might be questionable but I try to consider things on a case by case basis and, as I said, be really mindful of the privileges at play.
(Apologies if any of my language is bad or if I’m jumping inappropriately into the conversation. If it’s not clear by how ~mindful~ I claim to be, I think about this stuff all the time so I couldn’t help myself.)
here in philadelphia, it is a balmy 83 degrees, and my thighs are free of their leggings and ready to say ‘hayyyyy’ to each other. the best chub rub trick i’ve ever encountered is dove unscented deodorant* (or any other solid white unscented deodorant) on the inner thigh (this is seriously a lifesaver and way cheaper than chub rub creams), but my (and everyone else’s) other favorite method is little shorts under a dress.
usually i wear my bike shorts, which have the benefit of being moisture-wicking and antibacterial, but they also have a butt/crotch pad for cycling that feels pretty weird when you aren’t on a bike, or i wear one of two pairs of danskin shorts from walmart, but walmart doesn’t seem to have these in plus sizes anymore in these.
SO, i’ve been asked by a few people if i have any under-dress shorts to recommend, and i don’t have any beyond that. do any of you dudes have recommendations? if i get any, i’ll update this post with them. thanks !
- first response ! Sara recommends woman within’s bike shorts in comfy stretch fabric. they’re only $12.99-$15.99, they range from a S-5X, and come in 9 different colors. backstagebethy adds that the 5X are a 38-40W, and that they’re having a sale right now where you get $2 off per pair if you buy 2 or more pairs. they’re also one of one stop plus’ hot 100 right now. haha.
- my irl buds kristen and diana reccomend these jawns from macy’s. kristen got the XXL and as a size 22, says she believes a 24-26 could comfortably wear them. they’re about $20/pair. also, macys apparently has a lot more colors in store, and a shorter length too. kristen’s ringing endorsement: “if you like teggings, you will love these chub rub shorts.” she also adds that at a size 22, she is able to pull the XXL to up under her boobs, so they aren’t as low-slung as they look in the picture depending on your size.
- i just remembered that many of my friends recommended allihalla on etsy- i have spoken to alli before and she will make custom bike shorts in any size, and she has a few cute styles that aren’t just plain black shorts. i think there might be a small upcharge for very large sizes, but they’re a great price for a garment custom made to your measurements (and the stock sizes vary from a 2 to a 20).
- marshaferz suggested pettipants as an alternative to bike shorts- these aren’t my style but are definitely more breathable than bike shorts.
Allihalla on etsy is a PORK magazine supporter/affiliate so as always I say boo to offering any promotion to their shop, because they participate in blatant racism. We all know that the plus size fashion has as much of a problem with Whiteness as regular fashion does and there’s no better example than the biggest new fatshion blog on the block having a big enough blind spot that they are promoting allihalla despite generally attempting to be intersectional.

As for chub rub cures, I swear by the Danskin Now brand bike shorts. It’s harder to locate plus sizes but the straight sizes do run large so in-betweenies be advised. I also use anti-chafing gel when shorts aren’t practical.
