YES THIS HELLO
It’s why I don’t buy into these white girl pin-up/burlesque revival fantasies.
forever reblog coz pinup and burlesque were stolen from woc to begin with.
E3 was great! Just look at all brand new games they give us!
Just look at protagonists! Isn’t it great, how modern technologies let developers create so many different characters?! Just look at divercity of facial hair! Or how many hues of dark brown used for their hair!
White women really also need to realize that they often still have better opportunities than many men of color. They earn more than Black, Latino, and Southeast Asian men on average, for one. Not only that, but Black men have made virtually no gains in pay in relation to the white man’s dollar since the 1970s and Latino men have seen average wages drop - while white women have had wages rise tremendously since the 1970s, particularly over the last 20 years. Wage gaps due to race and gender shouldn’t be happening, but it’s not relation to men’s wages, but white men’s.
How to use your white privilege
If the “passing privilege” person is looking at this blog, this is one thing you can do, if you’re up to it.
Reblogging for excellence.
More passing people, and people who recognize white privilege should do this
for the white folk who ask “but what am i supposed to do about all of this”
soooooooosososososo so good.
WHITE PASSING/WHITE PEOPLE PLEASE WATCH THIS IF YOU EVER WERE GONNA WATCH ANYTHING WATCH THIS.
Just wanna state that I believe being hard femme also means using your privileges (whatever they may be) and your ability to be hard badass femmes to smash down on oppression just like this.
YES YES YES YES I’M FUCKING CRYING ALL OF THIS YES THANK YOU.
(and reminder to self and fellow white people, don’t fucking DARE act like this is a seal of approval for our white savior industrial complex. doing this and then loudly proclaiming it expecting cookies and accolades, or using it to shout down a person of color, is despicable and racist.)
the fuck is this imperialist crowdsurfing
The imagery in this scene hearkens back to every Victorian cartoon depicting mother Britannia taking care of unruly babies of color labeled India, Jamaica, etc. I understand that conquering is part of the story in A Song of Ice and Fire and these people are grateful for their freedom, but the visual of a thousand brown arms reaching for their white savior “mother” is extremely problematic.
This image is sickening, and emblematic of every movie dealing with race created by White America.
they’re really just scapegoats for white people.
“Oh, no, they’re racist. I don’t go around lynching people and setting crosses on fire so I couldn’t possibly be racist.”
So what? Do you make black jokes? Refer to things as “ghetto”? Appropriate AAVE? Believe black women are welfare queens/the main ones benefiting from welfare? Do you believe most black men are thugs? You’re still a racist, even if you don’t wear a hood.
At least I know the KKK hates me.
new. never before seen tv show. all white cast. forbidden hetero love. Brand new. no one has ever seen this.
Conventionally attractive white man is grumpy about being talented and special. Everyone loves him. He is perfect, solves all mysteries and fixes all problems. No one understands his pain.
new sitcom. white hetero married couple. man is chipper, incompetent, sexist everydude. woman is conventionally attractive and nags a whole bunch. kids or parents show up and are bratty. laugh track included with show so audience knows when to pretend something is Funny. so groundbreaking wow
anonymous said:Can you please explain to me how wearing a hijab is liberating? I am trying to understand how something that is forced upon only women, can be feminist? Why does Islam only promote women covering up their hair, and why are they seen as impure without it? Why can’t men be responsible for their urges, they’re capable of controlling themselves and we should hold them responsible for their actions.
so i think i would have been nice about this (maybe) if you had not come in with a slew of assumptions:
- that muslim women are forced to wear hijab
- that muslim women are seen as impure without hijab
- that islam thinks men can’t control their urges
- that the hijab has anything to do with men
- that i am obligated to explain jack shit to you (this of course, being the most egregious of them all)
if you had done any research in places that are actually informed about islam you would know that
- the hijab is an act of worship. the same way that prayer is an act of worship. the same way that hajj and fasting and charity are acts of worship.
- the hijab is not a protection against the male gaze. men are, in fact, according to the quran and hadith, required to lower their gazes away from women. whether these women are covering or not is not relevant. and if you in fact knew anything ever you would know that there are men that fetishize and objectify women in hijab. my wearing the hijab does not protect me from jack shit. it’s me choosing to submit to Allah the same way a nun who wears a habit submits to Christ.
- men are responsible for their urges. there are codified punishments for rapists. there are religious rulings on who men are allowed to look at. the expectation in the religion is that men control their own dicks.anyone who tells you different is a fucking liar.
the hijab is feminist because its my fucking choice. i get to choose how i want to dress my body, and this god damned western progressive ideology that in order to be liberated my skin has to show for you is so fucking problematic and enraging that i just??? my hijab is a feminist act because its an act of resistance and rebellion. im fucking up your gender expectations, shielding myself from your male gaze, refusing to be commodified by you
and that shit makes you uncomfortable
the fact that you came here and worded your ask the way you did means thatyou dont actually want to learn — you think that every muslim woman that makes a choice not to be dressed in a way that makes you comfortable is unfeminist. you think i have to be western to be feminist. well let me fucking tell you i am not going to strut myself for you so you can feel comfortable. im not going to take off my hijab so you can pat me on the back and say ‘wow you’re one of us now!!!’
my hijab is a huge fuck you to establishment
Part of the issue I have reading scifi is so much of it is “a wandering band of white men set out to colonize space” and it’s just like reading a history book except there are asteroids.
