i feel like whenever a person with more privilege uses some excuse like “oh a black kid was mean to me once” or “a woman friendzoned me”
and they say that they are equal or don’t deserve the same rights,
is that they’re going off of three or four people that were “mean,” that if they were an asshole then they don’t deserve to have rights.
Bruh, you don’t get to decide who the fuck is worthy of human rights because they’re an ‘asshole’, Plenty of privileged assholes are on the block and they’re pretty free.
Why is it really that difficult to have some empathy and want everybody to enjoy the same rights?
Faun make up when I was at a friends house. Yeah I know the make up is overused but I wanted to try it anyways to see how it would look on me.
major cutie alert txt it
well, for real.
you don’t “throw up” when you see two straight people together.
do you know how uncomfortable it might make somebody if you say “oh, don’t kiss or hold hands in front of me i might vomit because woah two guys that’s nasty”
pedophiles are having sexual relations with a body that is not capable of consent, they’re fucking kids
a legal person that can consent can fuck another consenting and legal person.
why does it even bother you? that hurts people when you say that and think in a way that is making them feel like they need to hide or else get hurt, get shamed, and hell, even getting killed.
so my cousins are homophobic saying they’d throw up if they saw two men kiss
aaaaand my friends don’t think feminism is necessary because women can all demand equal pay
and at college i’m surrounded by discourse of social justice topics 24/7, no rest, no ‘maybe i don’t want to keep thinking about how many ways me and other people are oppressed’
it’s either non-stop or non-existent
and both are bothersome
but right now i just want to shake sense into them because they think they’re above the culture we’ve all been fed
I want companionship but I hate people
if you feel this way, you’re probably an introvert! because an introvert’s brain stays at a higher state of arousal than an extrovert, lots of socializing can cause overstimulation (which translates into feeling overwhelmed). this is why introverts do well with just a few strong relationships and need lots of alone time to recharge after being around people.
introverts make up around 30% of the population, but that number is likely much higher on Tumblr (it’s an activity that attracts introverts).
how do u
tell ur friend
that spending three hours running rings around the city to find your family because you made a simple request /months/ ago
a little creepy?
I will scream the next time a person says ‘internet friends aren’t real friends’.
Bitch just because I can’t physically touch them doesn’t mean it’s a robot on the other side or some shit.
I’ve dated via the internet.
I’ve met new friends via the internet.
I build communities via the internet.
Next person to say it gets a STOP sign
shoved up the ass.
Also if you seriously try to speak to me while I’m crafting a reply to a thread I’m going to get agitated.
You keep speaking and I don’t care.
I am trying to write a thing.
Can you not.
i obviously don’t think there’s anything wrong with interracial relationships for fuck’s sake, considering i’m in one and would also not exist without them…but people seem to think that interracial couples and mixed children solve everything or are even a relevant metric of “how far” we’ve come.
it’s so fucking annoying and i see this shit from pseudo-intellectual people on tumblr all the time. they ignore the power dynamics in the way in which interracial couples are presented (white savior, watering down and “bettering” people of color). they ignore that interracial couples are usually only thought of and represented as person of color + white person. they ignore that mixed children who are represented and glorified are usually lighter and with features typically thought of as white and glorified by eurocentric beauty standards (including light eyes, lighter and straighter hair, and lighter skin). they ignore that mixed usually is represented only as half white/half not white (usually Black or East Asian).
they ignore historical fucking cases where interracial unions and mixed kids solved nothing in terms of race relations. mixed children are not new. see: plantation slavery in the US. the fact that the majority of Black Americans have white ancestry because of slavery. the fact that white plantation owners would rape black women and have kids by them and then not have a damn thing to do with them. or Brazil where race mixing was encouraged to “better the race”.
plus in case you haven’t learned, you can fuck or want to fuck someone without it being a revolutionary or subversive act. quite often it’s the opposite, with white people fetishizing people of color and still ignoring their humanity. plenty of these people know that misogynists fuck women and it doesn’t make them love women so why do white people fucking or dating people of color make society less racist and oppressive?
