So here's what you need to know:
1. I'm Holly
2. I love Jesus
3. The rest doesn't matter.

Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision  in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion: 
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!

people who laugh so hard at their own jokes that they can’t even finish the joke because they’re laughing so hard are my favorite kind of people

I DO THIS. I AM SO GLAD TO BE VALIDATED RIGHT NOW.

holdingontojoy:

after I was in the hospital for 72 hours because of a “major depressive episode” (aka constant anxiety attacks/unable to get out of bed/bad thoughts) we got a bill in the mail for $11,000. thankfully, my parents have great health insurance, but what if they didn’t? i can’t…

I recommend moving to canada.
