What is love?
Apparently only for white people.
Dude, you do realize this ad is Italian right? Those people are Italian, because it’s an Italian ad. Italian people are typically white. This ad is suppose to be about acceptance in THEIR country, why would they have models that don’t look like they’re from their country?
I’m gettin’ real tired of tumblr’s attitude. I’m probably going to get a lot of hate for this, but here we go.
Not everywhere is as mixed as North America. You go to places like Japan and it would be really weird to see a white person in their ad, it’s no different for places like Italy and Germany where people are mostly white. In North American we seem to have a decently even mix in a lot of areas so it’s a little off-putting when there’s only a certain race -generally all white people- depicted, where it’s completely normal and would appear really strange otherwise for other countries. Like you wouldn’t go to China and demand they show white people in their ads there, so why would you do the same for a country that has very few PoC compared to it’s population?
As the person above me said, why would they have models that don’t look like they’re from their country in their ads?
Seriously, I am Italian, and FUCK YOU. Our country has huge problems with homophobia, there isn’t even one single law to protect homosexuals. Most European countries have legalized marriage and adoption (or at least talked about it), but not Italy. The Catholic community does everything they can to block the law against homophobia. Last month, a 14 years-old killed himself because he was gay. You have no idea how much that kind of thing matters in Italy, all you can fucking do is whine about Tumblr about the fact that they are all white. Yes, in Italy the majority of the population is indeed white. Not the rest of the world is like fucking North America. So before you come whining about it on Tumblr, get your facts right.
I love it when reality slaps the fuck out of Tumblr.

Reality bitch-slapping whiny fuckers on tumblr brings me such joy. And props to my countryman up there layin down the facts.
I ordered some clothes and stuff online…
and I think I am pleased with half of the stuff, which is mostly the accessories and maybe 2 or 3 dresses.
:| I’m really not surprised, but of course basically all of the clothes have large arm holes and not enough space in the front, so basically everything shows my bra on the sides. Like, seriously, what the fuck. Do companies think that women buying larger sizes have flat chests, or something? Newsflash: most women who shop in larger sizes are busty AND NEED MORE ROOM IN THE FRONT OF CLOTHING FOR THEIR BREASTS.
Fucking seriously, bro. You can’t make larger sizes the same way you make a size 2. >.> This is why I hate shopping period. Shopping online, shopping in stores…nothing fits me properly. Two of the dresses I bought fit pretty alright in the bust/hips, but the waist is WAY too big. Like, I know my waist measurement is 3 or 4 inches smaller in proportion to my other measurements than “the norm”, but seriously, those waists are WAY too large. >.> Clothes are always ill-fitting in the bust (because they are designed for like, a maximum of a c-cup no matter what size they are) and are always too large in the waist for me.
One dress fits me REALLY well and looks really nice. Two dresses I really like, but I have to fix them up (mainly for the bust fitting problem)…and hopefully I will be able to fix that problem. The fourth dress I bought…I’m not sure. I have to try it on again, but that is the one that has the giant waist and back, so I pretty much have to take it in all over. :x
I just hate shopping. I love clothes, but I hate shopping. u_u

Said a man who advocated for State violence, interesting. I agree with the overall sentiment, but I find the hypocrisy interesting.
