one of my fav scenes to be honest, cause lawd knws if they allowed black folks in the league maaaaaaan listen, alot of what ifs possiblities 

This film, “A League of Their Own” dedicates so many scenes to issues like sexism.

Yet, blink too fast and you’ll miss this short scene…the one that shows how Black women were barred from the league.

The Black woman is supposed to represent Mamie “Peanut” Johnson (who actually did try out for the league). She wasn’t allowed to play and went on to be one of the few women to play with men in the Negro League. 

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE A FILM ABOUT JOHNSON AND THE OTHER WOMEN WHO PLAYED FOR THE NEGRO LEAGUE! But Hollywood …

Reblogging to include this really adorable picture of Mamie “Peanut” Johnson and Mo’Ne Davis:

How to suppress women's writing in the age of social media

Inspired of course by by Joanna Russ. And not set off by anything in particular, just an aggregate of comments and a good friend being treated terribly for posting some of her fiction for free online.

She tweets and tumblrs so she must not be working.

  1. Black Person: I have been followed in stores, called a nigger, stopped and frisked...
  2. Latino/a: I have been told to "go back to my own country", harassed for speaking Spanish, called a wetback...
  3. Asian: I have been called "ching-chong", had people call me submissive, ask me to help them with their tests...
  4. Native-American: Lots of rape against native women, cultural appropriation for days, told I am getting free stuff from the government
  5. White person: One time, a black person called me a cracker. It hurt my feels a lot. Why can't we all just move forward and not see color?

I want to do a rom-com with Melissa McCarthy. I even told her that at an awards show, and she said ‘Yes, Let’s do it!’
