(see ktempest’s feed for context)
an outbreak of gang violence in a low-income racialized community triggers a symphony of racist dog whistles across the city and the horrifically right wing tabloid and bleeding-heart lefty paper both engage in it and then some wide-eyed ingenue on your feed is like “but how is this racist if you don’t educate me how will i learn” and you rip their fucking throat out with your teeth
project don’t piss off well-meaning liberal white guys lasted exactly three weeks.
but I am tired, bone-dead tired, of choking on my anger at systemic, structural injustices to appease insecure white men who are really trying.
I know I made a “lol white people” post just yesterday but I need to make one again.
OMG YES YOU ARE SO ENLIGHTENED, WHITE BOY. YOU ARE LITERALLY TOO HIGHLY EVOLVED TO COMPREHEND WHY EVERYONE ELSE STILL CARES ABOUT RACE AND ETHNICITY, LIKE WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME SOMEONE GOT LYNCHED? 1135, RIGHT? IT’S TOTALLY ~ILLOGICAL WHICH YOU KNOW BECAUSE YOU ARE BASICALLY A VULCAN! HOW COULD ANYONE POSSIBLY ASSIGN ANY DEEPER MEANING TO SKIN COLOUR AND, WHILE WE’RE AT IT, HOW IS BABBY FORMED?!
god I hope no one from Twitter finds my Tumblr
Pro-tip for everyone:
The guy that does ‘animals talking in all caps’ is a huge fucking creep.
Juuuust a reminder.
And let’s remember the time he said that people who make use of trigger warnings are giant ‘pussies’, while simultaneously crying about how his girlfriend’s elective medical procedure left him traumatised for two years.
Ugh not this shit again
like it’s bad enough when the Jewish harpy stereotype is exploited by Jewish men for lulz, but when this dumb goy thinks he can get in on the action
You stupid fuck, you are the reason that women feel insecure about ethnic features. Why so many of my Jewish girlfriends rushed to get rhinoplasty as soon as they could afford it, why my own fucking family compliments me by reassuring me I “don’t look very Jewish” in a photograph.
You contribute to the ideal of whiteness as beauty with your bullshit “curves like black girls but nice light skin” statements. You further the fetishization of Asian women.
Because nothing you said in this hateful tirade is anything new, it’s a regurgitation of societal views using what I’m sure you thought was a totes hilarious metaphor. Go on fucker, try to argue “satire.” Not that you will, because your M.O. is to post offensive shit and run.
DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW DISGUSTING IT IS TO COMPARE JEWISH PEOPLE TO INSECTS? DO YOU NOT GET THE IMPLICATIONS HERE, BESIDES THE RAGING MISOGYNY? YOU FUCKING FAILURE? HEY LOOK, I’M A CAPS-TALKING ANIMAL, DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME BETTER NOW?
Fucking hipster scum.
ps. bisected by a train
Oh my god! It’s a double fetishization! All the way across the sky! WOOOOOOOO!
I bet he thinks lesbians are hot, too. Oh my god! It’s even starting to look like a triple fetishization! Oh my god. Double fetishization! *cries tears of joy*
my heart just stopped. i just read on a feminist site a (presumably) feminist say “What’s the point of feminism if feminists don’t believe people can change?”—and this was said about a man who attempted to murder a woman, who has abused women, who has slept with women students, on and on and on and on….
What’s the point of feminism if feminists don’t believe
men who try to murder womenpeople can change?
i feel as if i should go out into baby sugg’s field and apologize to all the women who have fought and died for gender justice.
what is the fucking point of feminism if you can’t count on other feminists to have a woman’s back, shun the fuck out of a dangerous slimy predatory douchebag, kick him out of the community, and make his name dirt?
I mean I thought that was the whole point of the thing
Yeah this is why I don’t call myself a feminist anymore
Is anybody else besides me going D: at the latest post on Feministe? The one on commodification, that is.
Oh for fuck’s sake.
I find it far too difficult to keep up with all the menz all of Tumblr seems to find attractive.
Tell me about it. It’s an endless beige parade of hiddlebatchfassavoy…JESUS CHRIST I DON’T CARE.
Today, at 72, [Shirley] Williams is a professor at Trent University and one of a number of survivors of Canada’s notorious residential schools for native children who will tell her story Wednesday at a special panel at Queen’s Park, part of a cross-cultural dialogue hosted by Lt.-Gov. David Onley…
And this is the shit that Canadians refuse to recognize in the present world. It’s funny because Canadians like to pat themselves on the back for being such peacemakers and good to people when this abuse has been going on for about a century. The last residential school closed at 1997, that was only about thirteen years ago.
I’m Canadian, and from what I’ve seen, Canadians generally know about the residential schools, but the average person doesn’t realise how bad it was, and they definitely don’t think of it being recent. Our education system has some serious holes when it comes to Aboriginal history.
every time residential schools get mentioned I want to fucking bawl. also, holy shit my grandfather and other elders went to the one in spanish too.
my grandmother never ever spoke about what happened to her in residential school when she was alive, not even to my mom, not even before she died. my uncle has told some pretty awful stories though.
I did a school project on residential schools for the Heritage Fair and you would not believe the sheer amount of people who went “??????” at my board. It was fucking shameful. I went home so angry that so many people - in an institution of learning - could be that ignorant about such a thing. But I guess they learned? kind of?
I also got a lot of shit about how I was lying about my heritage, but whatever.
I only learned about the residential schools (and local native history in general) because a parent had a job on the reserve near the small town we moved to when I was 10 or so, and got to know the community. Once when we had to do speeches (do kids still have to do speech competitions?) I decided to do one on the residential schools.
Idealistic Kid WUH: This thoroughly researched speech which covers like 300 years of history will appeal to both the emotions and the intellect of my audience and bring to light this important historical issue which has been unaccountably ignored in our education!
Audience of white people: *crickets*
Bewildered Kid WUH: …was it something I said?
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a fictional story which reflects the diversity of the world’s future population by featuring characters of various cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. While these characters are meant to portray people living in the year 2027, it has never been our intention to represent any particular ethnic group in a negative light.
Square Enix responding to criticism of their treatment of race in Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Kind of reminds me of the old “it’s a fake world so it doesn’t matter,” argument. Either way it’s not an apology or a promise to do better next time, which is a shame.
The uploader says this scene is in Detroit, which is just the icing on the cake. I shouldn’t have to say this, but ‘ware racism and transphobia in the Youtube comments…and probably everywhere else.
