neapolitanswirl asked: P-H-I-L-L-I-P


That was quick!  Well okay here it goes.

P-Who is your best friend?:  I’m going to have to go with my friend Ev.  I talk to her fairly often (such as 4 am last night) and I’ve known her since high school.  She is one of my friends who has visited me in Chicago and I tell her everything.  We had one rough patch at a certain point (I’d rather not talk about it) and I’m really glad we got past it. :)

H-Longest relationship and with who?: I think it should be “with whom” (because I’m that kinda guy)…  And this isn’t really a fair question.  I’ve only had one other boyfriend before and that lasted for a year.  I met him my junior year of college and we started dating during my senior year while we were living in the same house.  He was a sophomore at the time and was double majoring in Religion and English/Gender Studies(?).

I-5 turn ons: Holding hands/touching, communication, smarts, moaning, and boxer briefs (didn’t know that until recently).

L-Would you ever date someone of another race?:  Yes.  I’m the “in it for the person, not appearance” type of guy. :)

L: Yep still would. :P

I:  You’re not getting five more.

P:  Still Ev.  And I’ll also throw in my friend Corinne.

Thanks for the ask, Phillip! :)

Awww it was totally heartwarming to scroll through my tumblr and see this post by my best friend Jon <3

One of the most disturbing scenes in Disney’s “Aladdin” is when Jasmine must pretend to seduce Jaffar in order to distract him. The clothing that the animators chose to put her in, complete with the shackles, are all a white, colonial wet dream. And she’s the only Disney princess who’s had to use her body in this way to distract someone. Then there’s this scene in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” where Esmeralda is shimmying her hips and breasts and basically ends with a pole-dance sequence: a far cry from the delicate waltzes and pirouettes that Belle and Aurora dance. The simultaneous fascination and revulsion that Whiteness has for WOC bodies are unmistakably evident in Disney’s posturing of Jasmine and Esmeralda.
