Many skateboards were hurt in the making of this episode of Betty
Girls who say “bro” in every sentence are my kinda girls
You guys! Watch Betty on HBO. I’ve been on this site for six or seven years now and this show is literally what you all have been asking for. The movie that came before it, Skate Kitchen, is on Hulu and consists of the same characters. The every first iteration, That One Day is on vimeo but it’s the actual skaters, not their characters. Yes, I fell down a rabbit hole of content. Betty is about young female skaters navigating their lives in the male-dominated NYC skate scene and their lives outside of it. There are 5 lead characters, 3 of them are Black women and one is a Latinx woman. The HBO episodes are only 30-minutes long but so far they covered racism, coming to terms with sexuality, #MeToo, how women can internalize misogyny, and some other things I’m probably forgetting. I haven’t seen anything about it being renewed for season 2 so please try to support :)
Now tell me it’s been renewed for season 3!!!! Please!!!
The #metoo storyline was well done because it wasn’t heavy handed. And it was right for THESE characters. It was so good because it was done from the perspective of a girl going all out to defend her male friend she was so sure (or appeared she was) was being lied on because she loved him and thought she knew him and we see that in Hollywood so much with these stories. You see famous women not believing victims because they know the famous man in question. So it was interesting to see her challenged and have to face the truth. And the fucking gaslighting and him trying to fuck with her head and make her doubt herself and her own experiences like people need to see that. I think they did a great service there, young women need to see that part, specifically, in action.
The episode with Janay and Honeybear understanding in that moment as Black girls they couldn’t run from the cops because they would get killed so they had to just stand there and be arrested while Kirt ran DAMN !!! …damn. and I love they didn’t let Kirt just apologize and move on, no matter what. Like no you need to understand what you did and why you were free and we weren’t. Having their back would’ve been standing against that wall. Kirt causes a lot of mayhem because she doesn’t realize why she’s getting away with it and it’s a good example of how queer white people don’t understand that they don’t suddenly loose their white privilege because they’re not cishet.
And I lovvvee Indigo, Janay and Honeybear! Yes give me three Black girls from wildly different backgrounds, personalities, interests and styles and home lives that certainly couldn’t be more different.
THIS SHOW. You right, op, you right.
Are there any wlw couples on Betty that don't involve a yt girl, because if so I'd actually check it out. Otherwise I'm good lol
And quite frankly I’m extremely disappointed Betty isn’t more popular on tumblr dot com. It’s definitely got a following but based on what I’ve just seen it is absolutely slept on.
I don’t get it!
I don’t get what wlw of tumblr want anymore. Y'all different.
Also I’m not used to hearing my name on TV this is so weird and in real life I’ve only seen one person who spelled it the same way my name is spelled.
Yeah, you should watch Betty. It’s a very important show.
