I saw these “tween” shoes being sold at my local supermarket today.

They are a line of skechers sneakers with a hidden wedge heel, “Daddy’$ Money”.
The tagline is “Get spoiled with Daddy’s money, ultra cool shoes that will put you in the spotlight with a dose of swag and a 2-inch hidden wedge.”
There are different kinds of shoe, all starting with “Gimme” - like “Gimme wicked” & “Gimme kisses”.

atopcat asked: Sure I'm bothered by the costumes aimed at women, but they're grown adults. The costumes for little girls on the other hand made me sick, wtf are little girls doing wearing that much makeup and posing like they're grown women instead of little kids who just want sweets?! The pirate costume is the worst one tbh

I agree that the costumes for little girls are a lot worse, I find them sickening as well. I found these costumes and these poses particularly disturbing.. 
I think the issues are connected though, little girls are being taught that they need to be pretty, wear revealing clothes and makeup, so they get the message very young.

RAINN insists that a focus on rape culture is misguided because most young adults know rape is wrong, thanks to “repeated messages from parents, religious leaders, teachers, coaches, the media and, yes, the culture at large.” But knowing that “rape is wrong” means little if you don’t know what rape is.

When one witness in the 2012 Steubenville rape case was asked why he didn’t stop the assault on a high school girl, he testified that he didn’t know the attack was rape: “It wasn’t violent. . . . I thought [rape] was forcing yourself on someone.” Earlier that evening, this teen took car keys away from a drunk friend. At some point he got the message that drunken driving is wrong, but never that penetrating an unconscious girl is rape.

Even some politicians don’t seem to fully understand what rape is. “Rape, when I was learning these things, was the violation of a chaste woman, against her will, by some party not her spouse,” Tennessee state Sen. Douglas Henry said in 2008. It was only two years ago that then-Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri suggested that “legitimate rape” doesn’t cause pregnancy, and the FBI revised its definition of rape, which had included only women (no mention of male victims) who had been “forcibly” attacked.

you people have absolutely no critical thinking skills
one is a disrespectful, extremely inaccurate and highly romanticized and steteotyped ‘interpretation’ of native american imagery, appropriated to serve as a novel, kitschy piece of native culture that for white people to consume and use as they please, while actual native americans are having their culture, languages and land stolen from them.
the other is a fictional comic book character, playing a fictional race of peoples, that is loosely based on norse myth. without Idris playing that role, the entire population of asgard would have been as pale as the driven snow. this is a film meant for a modern, global audience but you want less PoC in it? and if you’re going to argue that it would have been ‘historically accurate’ for all norse gods to be white then you can go throw yourself into a pile of horse shit because the idea that anything in the Thor movies or comics is ‘historically accurate’ is extremely ludicrous.
so you can all stop with the inane comparisons now and go back to eating your mayo and crackers or whatever it is white people do when they’re not screwing over other races.

You people have absolutely no critical thinking critical thinking skills.
One is a disrespectful, extremely inaccurate and highly romanticized ‘interpretation’ of a norse god, appropriated to serve as a novel, kitschy piece of norse culture for Pickers of Cotton to use as entertainment as they please while northern europeans are having their culture, nations and women raped by immigrants. 
The other is a costume made for children to wear on halloween that is loosely based on old American Indian clothing. 
So you can stop with the inane complaining now and go back to eating fried chicken and watermelon or whatever it is black people do when they’re not sponging off of the achievements of other races.  

Don’t you love it when racists prove your point for you and look like absolutely the most deplorable kind of human trash while doing so?

Party America’s “Boys Totally Skelebones Costume” is a classic skeleton costume with the body covered in black and a plastic white skeleton on top. The “Girls Skullerina Costume,” says Party America, is “pretty in pink and bones” and features a pink tutu and a hair bow. At least this costume is better than the “Sassy Skeleton” sold on Party America, which assures wearers they’ll look “good enough to wake the dead.”
