I see on this blog that preference is bad? I hope I don't come off as bad for this, but I am a woc and prefer other races than black men. Growing up my mother always told me and my siblings how black men are most likely to cheat, go to jail, have baby mamas, and lazy. I used to go to an all black school were the boys were horrid to their girlfriend and threaten them. I know not all black men are like this, but I just can't shake off the things my mother who is a woc say and the things I've seen.
Yeah everything you’ve just said is disgustingly anti-black. Like what you just wrote not only holds absolutely no basis but is some of the most disgustingly racist anti-black racist bullcrap I’ve ever read. I am disgusted, and if I’m honest based on what you just wrote black men don’t need someone as gross and anti-black in their life as you.
I was thinking about something the other day and I was wondering what you thought about this: We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.
I can very easily love those who deserve my love and withhold my forgiveness from those who haven’t earned it at the same time. They are not mutually exclusive. I am also not interested in what measure of good and evil exists in those who hurt me or betray me, or hurt and betray others. What matters to me are words and actions that display to me what a person is really like.
trans women of color are literally the reason we have a queer rights movement and have always been a major factor in all forms of social revolution. trans women of color are the most important people and nothing you say will change that.
people act like cis is something “tumblr SJWs” made up but the term cisgender was first coined in 1994 and has been used academically for years. wikipedia has had a page explaining the term since 2002 (half a decade before tumblr was even a thing)
YES, ALL CASES OF CULTURAL APPROPRIATION ARE BAD. It does not fucking matter if one or two people disagree with what is or is not cultural appropriation because cultural appropriation is not determined or defeated by the select few who have been sipping the white colonialism tea.
Again, why the fuck are you still talking about this? Stop. Enough. Get the hint. You do not have a say in what is or is not cultural appropriation as a white person.
I don’t see how that means that guy has no perspective on different cultures. Would you consider an Indian or Chinese person wearing a western-style suit to be cultural appropriation? It’s not that far off from a white person wearing Indian or Chinese style clothes.
Colonization. Look it the fuck up. You might learn something.
what im saying is that bisexuals, pansexual, and asexuals should all join together so we can be in the fictitious trifecta. enough people will say we’re not real and we’ll all converge together in a massive, fierce mass only spoken of in myth. dont come near us or you too will cease to exist
As a MtF transgender woman, it is very important for me to have this surgery. However I cannot pay for it. The cost of blood tests, hormones, and medical visits and college are all consuming all the money I make. If you could help this college student out, I would really appreciate it. This is the one of the final major steps that I need to complete my transition- if you could help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
my cousin posted this on his facebook and she has only been donated $5 so I thought I should boost. please reblog, donate, or boost if you can. raising that money isn’t easy and she needs help!
Not cosplay related, but I think signal boosting here would be a good idea.
If you’re not upset about Katniss, Tonto, or Kahn being played by white people, but you are upset about Annie being played by a black girl, you’re probably racist.
And by probably I mean definitely.
As much as I agree with this post, I must remind people that Johnny Depp (who played Tonto) is a very proud descendant of various Native American nationalities, specially Cherokee. He supports entities of protection of native american rights and the only film he’s ever written and directed (called Bravo) is about the situation of native americans in the US. He doesn’t identify himself as a white person, so choosing to ignore his racial identity is also a bit of racism.
Richard Allen, Policy Analyst for the Cherokee Nation in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, agrees. He says that many celebrities have claimed Cherokee heritage—often based upon family stories they’ve heard—but like Depp they never try to verify it. “They all tell me they have high cheekbones,” Allen says.
If you’re proud of your heritage, you would at least try to back it up. Depp never bothered, so how proud of being Native American could he actually be?
So because he doesn’t think he needs to prove his origins to believe the “family stories he’s heard”, it completely invalidates his racial indentity? I’m sorry, but saying a person needs to prove their race not to be classified as white sounds extremely racist for me.
You know what I find fascinating?
That all this “I have Native American roots sorta kinda because my grandma was sorta Native American like Cherokee or something” talk from Depp is enough for people to completely dismiss the fact that someone who is 100% confirmed as Native American could have been given the role JUST LIKE IN THE ORIGINAL TV SHOW.
If producers could cast a Native American in a TV show to play a Native American IN THE FUCKING 50s, there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be happening today.
None of this, “I think I might be Native American because my grandma was maybe Cherokee” bullshit.
I mean, it’s not that fucking hard to find Native American actors, and Disney, with all of its resources, could have found one. Johnny Depp himself could have played the Lone Ranger. I love Johnny Depp as an actor, but he screwed up on this one.
Not to mention, the fact that the movie completely BOMBED should give you some hint concerning what people think about Depp playing Tonto.
I found another person who dislikes the Kinsey scale! \o/ THANK YOU! I have such a huge problem with it in that it contributes to the belief that being bi is being half gay or that it is somewhere between the 2 extremes that are heterosexuality and homosexuality. Except I'm not a fucking half way point between the two for fuck's sake!!! I'm not 50% gay/50% straight or 25% gay/75% straight. I'm 100% bisexual and fuck everyone who claims bisexuality is a middle ground. Anyway. Have a great day. :)
Exactly! Plus it’s erasive of non-binary genders and relies on your sexuality being fixed and compartmentalised to the point that if you don’t fit neatly into any category you can “fail the kinsey scale” lol.
I’m going to say this again because I literally can’t believe some people actually say this shit.
Being enslaved and being a trans woman are NOT comparable.
Being enslaved is something that happens to you AGAINST YOUR WILL.
Being a trans woman is something that you decide for yourself in order…
"Being a trans woman is something that you decide for yourself in order to feel MORE COMFORTABLE WITH THE GENDER YOU IDENTIFY WITH."
Did you really just imply that being trans is a choice?
No. How did you get “trans is a choice” out of that? I am cisgender, therefore I have always identified myself as a woman. A woman who is transgender has ALSO (very likely) always identified hirself as a woman, as well. My point was that being a black woman, a trans woman, or a black trans woman are all manners of self identity, whereas enslavement is an event that is maliciously inflicted upon another against their will.
