I’ve got mixed feelings about making fun of Lorde, y’know?
Because there are legitimate criticisms to be had of her songs/messages (like this), and there are ‘white people have no rhythm’ jokes, which are totally harmless.
But there are a lot of white folks making fun of her appearance (which is weird because, like, have you seen you?). A lot of men, especially. Most of these people are older than her. She’s seventeen. If you’re not coming from a place of mocking the euro-centric beauty standards she embodies (which the white people mocking her definitely aren’t), then you’re coming from a place of misogyny- “She’s not pretty (and women are required to be pretty)”
And most of the jokes center around the way she moves, uses facial expressions, and emotes. And let me tell you something: If you look at Lorde and see ‘odd’ movement, that is because you are trained to only accept allistic physical mannerisms. The way Lorde rocks and contorts her body, struggles to find the ‘right’ facial expressions, and physically interacts with other people are all autistic/neurodivergent traits. I’m not saying Lorde is autistic, because I have no clue if she is or not, but I’m saying that she moves like a lot of us move, and to make fun of her for that is to say that only allistic movement/physical carriage is acceptable.
tl;dr: If you’re making fun of Lorde, you should really think about what place you’re coming from, because a lot of the time it’s either misogyny or ableism
i went out on a boat today
are her legs?? purple????
i want to say that they’re tights or s/t but honestly. if toei coloured her legs purple i wouldn’t be surprised because i have very little faith in them after whatever the fuck this is

McDonald’s has been forced to open its first ever restaurant with a turquoise coloured sign after city planners said the signature yellow sign would be too garish. Officials in Sedona, Arizona told the fast-food giant they were unable to open a restaurant with the trademark yellow logo.This is due to the city’s strict regulations which prevent buildings from ruining the picturesque view of the desert.
