Happy Birthday, Idris Elba!
We’ve had a lot of discussions this week regarding privacy, consent, objectification, cat-calling, and a lot of other really important topics surrounding the way we treat women, celebrities, and celebrity women in our culture. It was great, by and large. A little heavy at times, but hopefully productive and enlightening in a lot of ways.
Now, lets all sit down and express some appropriate and healthy appreciation for the wonder of human beauty that is Idris Elba, who turned 42 today.
AND! And, let us also express that same healthy and appropriate appreciation for Naomie Harris, who turned 38. (Sorry for the lack of gifs, the internet was being uncooperative.)
Hey! Remember that time they played husband and wife in Mandela? They were great! The movie overall I have mixed feelings about, but the two of them were excellent.
Finding people sexy is never the problem. Treating them as though they are less than people, or feeling entitled to them in any way because you find them sexy is a problem.
