Everybody should watch this video because, it caught JeriorLiz and I by surprise. This is the most beautiful and tear-inducing video I have seen in a long time. The video shows so many women, all women, every woman which makes this video a dedication towards all women. Many people were represented in a way that is hardly found in the mainstream media.

Many people discuss this video by stating it shows “real” women, but I really think it shows everyday women. Women of different physical and mental abilities, skin tones, age, health status, genders and sexual orientation. As the video progressed, it just got better.

Transitionally, throughout the part of the video that got me was the intensity of the emotions and the various different situations that every person was going through. Especially, with the queer representation of all ages.

Both Unknownshadeof and I completely lost it when the video portrayed an elderly woman taking off her bra revealing her mastectomy. This is emotionally heavy because, you don’t get to see women with medical/physical scars or anything close to showing any bodily ‘imperfections’ in the media.

John Legend has always been the romantic crooner who can steal a few hearts, but now he has socially stolen the stage, calling out quietly for a wider representation of the perception of ‘women’.


Ok, listen, this is 100% one of those emotionally manipulative things and also blah another song where a dude sings about how beautiful his lady is because she doesn’t see it in herself, but shit, the video, though.

Openly weeping, is all. I am, apparently, highly susceptible to this thing. 

Agreed, the song is decent but the video is worth the song. I appreciate the effort of the video.

Above is the “Know Anon” code that allows you to expose any hateful anons you wish at your own whim. If you know anyone who’s struggling with anonymous hate, reblog this for them.

  • How to install

Simply copy the above code and paste it right after the <head> portion of the HTML coding on your blog. This is with the jQuery script included, so everything should be covered. Once you’ve done this, update and save, then exit your customize page.

Re-enter your customize page, and under “appearance” should be a button called “Enable Know Anon”, which may be on or off automatically, depending. Flip the switch to enable or disable it, then save.

  • How to use

When you get anonymous hate or anon messages you find offensive, simply exit your Inbox, enter your Customize page, flip the switch to “on”, then save and exist. Re-enter your inbox, and any and all anonymous messages will be exposed with a URL, if they have one. Note that this includes everything, not just the hate. Another thing to note is that, once you expose anons in the inbox, you can’t un-expose them. Flipping the switch back to “off” does nothing.

Answer a message people thought was on anon, and gee, they’ll get a nasty little surprise, hmm? It’s better than a fake anonymous button because while you still can’t control who it exposes, you can control when to do so.

Remember though, that this isn’t the only way to stop anonymous hate. As always, there’s simply the “turn anonymous asks off” button. And thanks to the update from a few months ago, anons CAN be blocked.


That little hand right there? That’s the ignore button. It’s present on all asks sent, whether anon or otherwise. When you block an anon, you have the option to report them for spam or harassment, and it will permanently block them. It also blocks the IP address and computer, so that person can’t take advantage of extra accounts to continue sending you hate. It effectively wipes that person right out of your Tumblr life. They cannot contact your blog again, ever.

For the website that gives you the Know Anon code, with or without jQuery script, in case that causes trouble (most themes come with it pre-installed, but not all), go here.

[ Goodness, wow thank you very much for letting me know this existed! That was very considerate of you! ]


Here you go. <3
