Okay, seriously, this is a shit poster. Most minimalist posters are. But this one especially, because not only does it fail to aesthetically capture any aspect of the mood of the movie, not only does its minimalism utterly fail to say anything about anything, but it doesn’t even depict any aspect of the plot of the movie.
This is a picture of a flight to Mars. The silhouette of the space shuttle puts it in the context of space travel. We assume its point of origin is the Earth, and this is reinforced by what we assume is the moon in close proximity (which, in real life is about the width of the US). The third circle, much larger than the moon but smaller than Earth, would have to be the next planet out. Technically, that could as easily be Venus, but Venus is much closer to Earth’s size—this circle is about right for Mars. (Plus, I don’t know of any movies about going to Venus in a realistic modern shuttle). Armageddon is about a mission to a meteor about the width of Texas. Ergo, this is an iconographic representation of Mission to Mars, not Armageddon.
More to the point, this is a half-assed attempt at a lazy aesthetic. If you’re going to jump on design bandwagons, at least learn the language.
[edit] After looking at iamhingo’s other work, they actually seem like a competent and talented designer. There’s just something about the minimalist poster craze that seems to drain people’s imagination and judgement.

Aw fuck it, I’mma say it.

thebigblackwolfe:

White feminists need to understand that not all men are sexualized in a way that wholly benefits them. That is something exclusive to white men point blank period.

Because MOC are sexualized in ways that remove their agency and their humanity, and most times this is perpetrated by both white women and white men.

So when you’re talking about the sexualization of men giving men power, you need to be specific about which group of men you’re talking about.

the lgbt community oppresses me and makes me feel weary of my well-being while denying my freedom of speech. can someone please shut them up? thank you.

honestly thought this was sarcastic until I checked their blog. Either their entire blog is one horrible failed attempt at satire, or this person is genuinely this shitty and ignorant. 

I’m beginning to feel weary of their well-being myself…

they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it. 
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck

Go SISTAH!! *raised fist*

Holy shit! That was amazing!
