Tegan: Every time I see it I just wanna punch her in the face because I’m so excited for her.

African American flappers and Jazz Age women
HOLY SHIT I HAVE NEVER SEEN BLACK FLAPPERS BEFORE!
There were many fabulous African American flappers. No wonder - it was African American musicians who put the Jazz in “The Jazz Age”! The Charleston dance iteself, which so epitomizes the era, made its debut in the all-Black musical “Runnin’ Wild”, and no one danced that flapper number better than Josephine Baker…save possibly for fellow Black artist Florence Mills, who claimed credit for inventing it (she said she debuted it in her “Plantation Revue” in the early 20s, developing it from a dance popular among slaves). The Charleston song was written by Black composer James P Johnson. Without women and girls like those above, the 1920s would never have roared.
without black women there’d be no flappers, no jazz babies, no liberated (white) women.
Reblogging for flappers and a piece of history that never makes it to movies.

This fucking woman

But if she has a girlfriend, why don't they have sex like heterosexual people and she can skip the surgery and keep her penis?
Ok it's like this... I give you a fork and tell you to eat some soup. And you want the soup, but you don't want to use the fork. So you ask for a spoon, but I tell you to just keep using a fork, because that's what you already have. Even though it won't work out, people keep telling you to use a fork because why bother getting a spoon if you already have one utensil? And you get frustrated and finally tell them all to fuck themselves and go get a damn spoon because that's what you need and what you want and you're going to have it.
I CANNOT BREATHE
I'm an aspiring Aerial Circus Artist and Contortionist who is obsessed with Canada and Sara and Tegan Quin. I just need to hug those little musical, pixie geniouses. Well, this has been sufficiently awkward.|
