George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.
when privileged groups want rights, safety, and respect, it’s called “basic human decency”
when oppressed groups want rights, safety, and respect, it’s called “social justice”
Please report this tweet and this man’s twitter, it would only take a minute or two. What this implies is absolutely horrific and people like him are why we have major issues like child molestation and rape. Just because this young girl is “more developed” it doesn’t make this ok in any way, shape or form. This could be considered child pornography, people are treating this like a joke. People are even talking about her in the replies, and siding with the man…I think I even saw the “what she was wearing” excuse being accepted. This needs to be treated as a potential predator. The tweet url is here -> https://twitter.com/yung_wifebeater/status/492389414900101120 and you are going to need to copy and paste that for when you file a report for harassment. I am absolutely disgusted at how far the internet has gone to make a “joke”. Signal boost this, this isn’t something that needs to be taken lightly.
Oh FUCK no. Fucking pedophile.
I really don’t care if they re-name Moana to Spirited. I don’t care if they did the same thing for Tangled and Brave.
If Disney thinks that’s what they need to do to convince boys to see the film, good, fine, do it.
I’d much rather have Disney make a film…
i don’t care how a child is dressed or how mature their body is, they are a CHILD and they don’t need to be sexualized. thanks
In response to Idaho Native Americans canceling one of his performances, Ted Nugent displayed the behavior that caused the tribe to do so in the first place.
“I take it as a badge of honor that such unclean vermin are upset by me and my positive energy,” Nugent hatefully said. “By all indicators, I don’t think they actually qualify as PEOPLE, but there has always been a lunatic fringe of hateful, rotten, dishonest people that hate happy, successful people.” -Ted Nugent.
Haaaaaaaaaa fuckin weak ass su’yapi, stay the fuck off my rez.
Omg I can’t believe that this isn’t satire
i need to stop seeing this shit come up on my dashboard. stop mimicking “black men” when you invoke predatory sexuality. recognize it and stop doing it. recognize the part youre playing in perpetuating the deadly myth of the black male rapist.
and read this: "Rape, Racism and the Myth of the Black Rapist" from Angela Davis’s Women Race and Class
I understand what is said here, and agree. But I think the pictures/gifs used to demonstrate were a bad choice, only one directly points to the “Predator” being a black man. Just an observation.
find out what aave is and come back
Point made, I was just giving an observation. I agree with your post 100% , but I think there are better examples
absolutely there are. but i made this post as a direct response to seeing the first two gifsets go viral around tumblr’s feminist community. i added the third screenshot to further contextualize my point. a lot of feminists i followm reblogged the hell out of the first two, obviously not seeing that they were using racism to fight sexism.
i also still think you’re failing to see that these are GOOD examples. because in neo-liberal media, overt racism isn’t as pervasive as “subtle” racism. so it’s exactly those first two posts that ppl need to be more aware of. because they might not be trained to see the racism in those situations where it’s not blatant. and that’s exactly what happened when those posts went viral.
this post is going around again a little bit so i want to add a thought process i’ve developed since this post’s conception. if you don’t actually think this is a thing (like some of you reblogging this to say black ppl are reaching bc you assumed op, i, was black) keep a notepad with you for a few weeks and write down every time a non-black person slips into aave (in speech, in a text message, on facebook, whatever.) then next to that, write down why. i’ve done this, and the second column never strayed from three overlapping categories:
1) jocose sexual predation (as in the examples above. real life examples: “AY GIRL, lemme holla atcha!” “lemme get cho numba.. ay yo where you goin’?” on someone’s selfie/profile pic: “DAYUM.” “damn ma, you is fiiiiine.”) verbally, this is, without fail, accompanied by a faked very deep voice. wonder why?
2) jocose aggression (real life examples: “YO FUCK DAT NOISE I AIN’T ABOUT DAT, FUCK DA HATERZ” “WHO IS YOU” “YO ima STOMP that FOOL!” "im finna snatch this bitch weave")
3) being loud (real life examples: “MUH FUCKIN HOMIE” “FO REAL DO” “ooo girrrlll!!!” )
so we slip into aave when we’re putting on sexual predation, aggression, and loudness. what does that tell us about stereotypes of black americans?
your solidarity is so real I wanna weep.
TODAY’S SPECIAL (2009)
I would like to give Planned Parenthood and their Teen Council forum 10/10 stars
idk about you all, but this made me cry
and i know not all forms do this, this might be the only one, but knowing that at least one organization recognizes me as a person, doesn’t ask me to lie to fit their box, is one of the most calming and beautiful things to experience.
and i’m just waiting for the day when government forms use this, when schools ask for preferred pronouns, when everywhere has an other category for gender and pronouns.
we’re getting there, y’all. we’re demanding to be seen and it’s working
PLANNED PARENTHOOD YES. Thank you, so awesome.
