white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when

God! Can white people appreciate nothing??! Everyone knows everyone has every race in there blood line by now right? Seeing that we’ve been around for fucking 200,000 years… You’d think we could over look something as stupid as race by now.. Fuck!

Using people like props isn’t fucking appreciating anything.

Poc are not just here to be our props in movies, music videos and dance routines.

When PoC start to gain as much visibility as white people then MAYBE just MAYBE we can ‘forget about race’

P.S. You’re a racist biggot and I think you should do me a favour by unfollowing me.

Maybe instead of name calling someone who doesn’t get it and doesn’t get why glamorizing the cultures of POC is still a race issue, you could educate them. You’ll catch more bees with honey than vinegar <3

Or I could let someone know that they are what they are because if they had any interest in educating themselves they would have done it already. But you know keep defending people who are contributing to the oppression of others. Real cool.

;)

I’m not defending any one. It’s not like schools teach about the deep seeded oppression in our world and the fact that racial issues still exist and still are a big deal. As I recall, my school taught me that racism went away in the 60’s. Ha!

How the hell do you expect people to want to educate themselves when you call them names and belittle them? Now it is totally possible that that person IS racist or a biggot. But it is also possible that they don’t know better. It’s like having a rule for a little kid that you’ve never told then about, then getting mad at them when they break that rule.

I read a story about an African American musician who befriended numerous Klansmen and collected their hoods when they left the KKK after he had shown them human kindness and opened their eyes to the way the world really is. If you’re interested, his name is Daryl Davis and there is a great article on guardianlv.com. I’m not saying you have to be friends with everyone disagrees with you, but considering how passionate you are about race and equality issues it is striking to me that you would rather offend and ask people to unfollow you rather than reach out and educate them on why they might want to think twice on their views of modern racial issues.

So like I said before… You can catch more bees with honey than you can with vinegar.

While I agree with you, and to unfortunately erase racism, we have to confront it heads on and work together.

However on tumblr, I see that a lot of PoC considering this their safe place to vent their anger. They shouldn’t need to educate someone because if one did some digging, it isn’t too hard to find the information you need and narratives from other PoC that don’t have an antagonistic tone. They shouldn’t also feel like they have to cater to the ignorant.

Now in the long run, is it that productive? Ehh… Well we see that the social justice movement has its own problems..

But outside of a PoC safe space/real world applications, yes, your suggestions are definitely the most effective methods.

A friend/mutual follower who happens to be a PoC just private messaged me about this too, and she had similar sentiments and among our discussion I told her that I would never dream of policing someone’s behavior on their own blog, especially if they were venting their hurt/frustrations etc.

However, it really irks me when someone takes the time to call out someone in a negative way, name-calling and belittling when that person could easily have no idea that they should know better, especially when the same time could be taken to address the matter in a more positive “You’re misguided, please go educate yourself” kind of way.

If this hate was something I saw only occasionally on my dashboard (which usually it is) I would ignore it, or tell the “ignorant” person myself why their comments were taken negatively… but when I see it repeatedly from a blog I usually enjoy following, it begins to have a negative impact on my experience, and so I felt the need to say something… and I got lashed out at as well, so c’est la vie. You can’t win them all. But I don’t regret saying what I said and I hope that seeing this back and forth narrative sparks someone who doesn’t think that these pictures are unacceptable to do a little research and educates themselves. :)

I’m sorry, but its not anyone’s job to “educate” and ignorant person. If people decide that they don’t want to be fucked up and racist, they need to educate themselves. 

Feel free to take a look at my response to the blog I originally reblogged that from.

I don’t think anyone should have to educate anyone else but I also think it’s weird as fuck to write people off and call them names when you could just as easily a) ignore them b) unfollow them or c) explain to them WHY something “as stupid as race” is still such a big fucking deal.

gynocraticgrrl:

Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.

(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

where the fuck are the boxer briefs for ladies 

just make underwear that are just like boxer briefs but without the bulgy package area in front for fuck’s sake

you don’t need to make them shiny or lacy just make them comfy and streamlined without awkward seams and maybe in some basic colours that aren’t white or that awful “flesh tone” colour 

I would wear the shit out of these.

keep in mind many men don’t really like women, they like the high regard afforded them by other men when seen with a certain kind of woman. they like the confirmations of their masculinity and sexual prowess when engaging physically with a woman, and they like the ego boost of being attractive to many women. but they do. not. like. women.

yessssssssssssssss

Reblogging because when I see these kinds of semi-aggressive “damn them all” posts, this is the kind of ish that makes people get that “bra burning femi-nazi” picture of feminism in their head. And the way it is phrased just really rubs me the wrong way.

What defines many men? 100? 1,000? 1 million? The men in my life aren’t like this. And if they are… they aren’t in my life anymore. I could ALSO accurately say many men really do like women. 100… 1,000… 1,000,000. For every man that doesn’t “really like women: I could find you one who did. Maybe he grew up around a man that doesn’t like women, and maybe he has had macho moments where you can make a snap judgement about whether or not he “likes women”. But at then end of the day, if you really know the man and the way he loves his woman, his mother, his sister, his aunts, his cousins… you see that he genuinely LIKES women. I hate this “guilty until you’ve proven yourself innocent” kind of social issue stuff that crops up on Tumblr. 

tl;dr: “Many men” is a poor way of phrasing what is otherwise a really good point about the unacceptable behaviors of SOME men.
