To quote Wikipedia:</p> <p>“Jack Nicholson states in the documentary <i><b>Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures</b></i>, that Kubrick was great to work with but that he was “<i>a different director</i>” with Duvall. Because of Kubrick’s methodical nature, principal photography took a <i>year</i> to complete. Kubrick and Duvall <i>argued frequently</i>, although Duvall later said she learned more from working with Kubrick on <i>The Shining</i> than she did on all her earlier films. In order to give <i>The Shining</i> the psychological horror it needed, director Stanley Kubrick <i>antagonised his actors.</i> The film’s script was changed so often that Nicholson stopped reading each draft. Kubrick <i><b>intentionally isolated Duvall and argued with her often.</b></i> Duvall was <i><b>forced to perform the iconic and exhausting baseball bat scene 127 times</b></i>.

Kubrick has abused his male actors too, but of course didn’t know that in our patriarchal society no didn’t you. This has nothing to do with feminism but directors being dicks to their actors for their personal gain or for their art. Get over yourself.</p></blockquote> <p>Directors being cruel megalomaniacs with a God complex is nothing new and certainly not exclusive to female actresses.</p><p>Also</p><p class="npf_quote" data-npf='{"subtype":"quote"}'>Saying everything like this</p><p>doesn’t make your point any stronger <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mWk_Fago5SyKpyXk-KOUmbw">@an-average-sized-person</a> </p>

Baseball, Dating, and Future: Dear future wife, it is okay to be strong and independent and be vulnerable at the same time. FB/IG:@Blackcitygirl So what if a man falls in love with what he does and gives to a woman?! How does THAT affect everyday life for you, a single woman busy dating yourself and paying your own bills, what men do is none of your business right? Wrong. You see a lot of women have become so independent that when MEN offer to GIVE and DO for them they dismiss their offers, as if all men have an ulterior motive. For instance in the work place, she'll be carrying something heavy and he'll ask "do you need help?" she'll quickly say "no I'm fine" or he'll offer to open the door and she'll say "hey I can open my own doors" what this translates to him is "STAY AWAY FROM ME" whereas in your mind you're just showing how capable you are as a woman. Add to the fact sometimes you're tired and stressed and have on your screw face 😡I'm totally guilty of this btw so a few weeks ago no word of a lie, I decided to do an experiment, every time a guy offered to help I showed him a smile and instead of snapping I said "yeah sure thanks" let me tell you ladies the results have been ASTOUNDING in one month 1. I was carrying like 5 grocery bags on my way home, wearing no make up and a baseball cap and it was raining and a guy asked if I needed help w- my bags, normally I'd roll my eyes and think "he just thirsty" but I accepted and once he'd dropped off my bags he said "I've never done this before" 2. I got into an argument in a cheap hardware store over my headphones and a random guy intervened on my behalf, normally I'd have "given him the side eye" but I smiled and said thank you and he bought me a new pair of headphones 3. After smiling and getting into a convo with an older man one lunchtime, mid way through our convo he asked "what do you wanna eat I'll get you" I was floored!!! None of the guys above asked for my number! Nope there was no cleavage bearing "wink wink" sexually suggestive behavior, this was straight me being a warm and friendly version of myself. As strong and educated as you maybe it pays to be VULNERABLE in the presence of men. You may not need help and that man may not be your future husband but being open to men giving and doing for you starts in your SINGLE SEASON. Blackcitygirl

So what if a man falls in love with what he does and gives to a woman?! How does THAT affect everyday life for you, a single woman busy dati...

Namely, that she paid them…. Less than $2 per day, that is. </p> <p><a class="tumblelog" href="http://tmblr.co/mKuMF1F89cM5JN6kxv8--8A">madworldnews</a> makes a good point in the column, and that is <a href="http://articles.latimes.com/2013/oct/17/world/la-fg-wn-slavery-africa-20131017">that tens of millions of Africans are slaves in both Africa and Islamic Nation</a>s. Once again, that is not a historical figure – That is at the present time. </p> <p>While afrocentric and SJW racists are able to spew vitriol against white people at will because a minute fraction of the American population owned slaves almost 200 years ago, they are totally ignoring that slavery still persists in most of the world, and Africans are both the primary slaves and slave dealers in these transactions, while Muslims tend to be the ones purchasing the human chattel. </p> <p>This was not a slave trade that started in the wake of that <i>evil, western heteropatriarchal white oppressive colonization</i> – No, this has existed for as long as people in that region have had mobility. </p> <p>I hate to state the obvious, but I am happy to put money on that the reason why progressives are ignoring this sort of thing, not just this particular case but the international slave trade in general, is because it would put them in a very awkward position to continue to defend their core belief that slavery was invented by white people who kidnapped and forcibly enslaved Africans (<i>as opposed to buying pre-bonded slaves from other Africans</i>). It’s the same reason why they pretend the Barbary slave trade never happened. It’s the same reason why they pretend like the majority of slaves transported from Africa during the Atlantic slave trade didn’t go to South America where the black population is still marginalized and heavily discriminated against. </p> <p>Who’s going to break the news to this woman that she just doesn’t fit the narrative right now?</p> <p>All I can do is roll my eyes into the back of my head. There will be no justice. That much is certain. <br/></p> <p>She’ll be tossed into the public welfare system with no education or understanding of her surroundings because she was at the wrong place, at the wrong time, and her attackers were of the wrong race.</p> <p>#Blacklivestotallymatterthough. <br/></p> </blockquote>
