Are you fucking kidding me? Like, no, Shakespeare wouldn’t tweet a sonnet cause 140 characters is a bit short for that. Wrong medium. But you know what he would have? A very active twitter FULL OF DICK PUNS AND YOUR MOM JOKES okay. (And probably also a blog for the sonnets and longer works, that cross-posts links to twitter anyway.)
Get out of here with that pretentious anti-technology bullshit.
He’d have Tumblr for sonnets and Snapchat for his other escapades. Oh and Foresquare at the Globe. Imagine Queen Elizabeth I checking in.

Sorry, Sophie, he follows everyone: http://gawker.com/embarrassed-taye-diggs-explains-why-he-followed-everyon-1587078273
I THOUGHT I WAS SPECIAL
I THOUGHT WE HAD SOMETHING
The Oscar-winning actress and children’s author Octavia Spencer was cast in the Divergent movie series as Johanna Reyes, and fans flocked to Twitter to be awkwardly “not racist” about it.
Despite many people apparently picturing Johanna Reyes as petite and white, she is not actually assigned a race or many strict physical features in the books. She is simply described as being middle aged, having dark hair, and bearing a prominent scar down her face. Her name suggests she is Spanish or Latina, but there is no one skin tone for Latinas. I don’t know Octavia Spencer’s racial background, but black Latinas do exist.
This is not the first time fans have reacted negatively to racially ambiguous book characters being cast as people of color in movie adaptations. (Not to mention reacting negatively upon the stark realization that they were people of color all along, à la The Hunger Games’ Rue.) This is a sad reminder that white is considered the default.
Well this is terribly typical.
And more news: water is wetOh heybowtyesarecool, how about you go ahead and tell me again about how fandom doesnt hate poc and we just need to stop talking. I will wait, but I am pretty sure you won’t have a damn thing to say.
"i expected her to be younger and more peaceful looking"
because peace and Black women’s bodies can’t co-exist in the same place.
This is why media PoC representation is so important. Many white people picture every single character, even those depicted as Black (Rue from the Hunger Games) as white. It’s a big problem.
Yes, You are racist.
Really absorb that “more peaceful-looking” comment.
This is the reason why it’s important that Octavia Spencer did get that role. Hollywood has brainwashed people into thinking that black women can’t even be “peacful -looking”.
Hollywood has made certain that only white people can have a benign default setting.
There is a lot of damage that needs to be undone.
