Honestly.. When PoC get to an age where they are able to deeply realize and internalize how intensely and directly racism affects them, as well as able to recognize the little racial microaggressions against them, it truly IS a traumatic experience. Its draining and depressing and painful and scarring. It can very easily make you lose the will to do anything or dream anything. And that is something that whites will never experience, thus never understand how deep this goes.

Truest post I’ve seen

”it’s fascinating how much of our sense of attractiveness and feminine identity is bound up in our hair”  — Natalie Dormer for Glamour USA, June 2014

When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty.

Truth.

Homer and Lisa’s relationship is one of my favourite things ever. He spent this entire episode trying to convince Lisa that she was beautiful, and he insisted to Marge that he wasn’t just saying it as a father, he genuinely believed that Lisa was the most beautiful girl in the world. Not to mention the fact that this episode ripped the shit out of the idea of child beauty pageants and how the self esteem of girl’s is diminished in general.

The Boxtrolls is transmisogynist

phoenixhobbit:

So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.

I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film. I’ll explain why below.

TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.

Dear Women,
This halloween please say no to these costumes please just say no they are fucking insulting and Dia de los Muertos is NOT HALLOWEEN I REPEAT NOT HALLOWEEN THIS IS NOT A COSTUME PLEASE STOP TREATING IT LIKE ONE
Thank you

TO ALL THE PEOPLE GETTING FUCKED OFF AT MY POST. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I MADE IT. FOR YOUR PINCHE GUERO PENDEJX ASSES. “WE DO IT OUT OF RESPECT,” MY ASS.

this hurts.

this is capitalism ripping through my memories i hold so sacred. Memories of walking through the streets of Chapala after school with my grandmother, and the smell of plants for the preparation of the big event. Memories of memories of memories

This is capitalism and white supremacy destroying, erasing and making new… something that has connected me with my elderes and ancestors,

This is whiteness telling me my body, our gente is unwanted, dehumanized and conditioned to death but at the same time extracting a part of my identity and wearing it as a mask.

This is a mask made of our dead and torn bodies… this is literally a mask made out of ripped bloody flesh. The flesh of migrants who die every year trying to cross.. the flesh of people who become criminalized and confined behind bars. The bloody flesh of torn bodies from years of exploitation in sweat shops, fruit and vegetable fields, dish washers.. domestic workers… 

this is our flesh ripped out cleaned, pampered and styled to fit a white face.

starburst98 said: on the flip side, you can't be so afraid that something could offend someone that you make it incredibly bland. an un-spiced dish may not offend, but no one will LOVE it.

cuteosphere:

Putting consideration into the weight of the words I use isn’t enforcing blandness. In fact, refusing to change because of “political correctness” is more bland than doing so. Bigoted jokes and content rely purely on the audience being “in on the joke” and nothing else, they’re little better than memes in terms of originality. Resorting to tired stereotypes and “shock” values isn’t exciting or explorative, it’s boring monkey-see-monkey-do.

I guess what you’re trying to get at is that if an artist tries to please everyone, their work will become bland and boring - and I agree, in a sense. I think that art that isn’t challenging or insightful is dull. But there’s nothing insightful or challenging about enforcing society’s pre-existing power structure. There’s nothing brilliant about creating content that comforts people who are already comforted by every other aspect of media. So I try to create art that is appealing to those who feel disrespected or ignored by other media, and I cannot do so by ignoring criticism from that very audience.

I guess what I’m saying is “offensiveness”, as it’s described by society, isn’t actually offensive to the audience most media is marketed to. It’s safe and familiar, and it has become so at the expense of marginalised people. And I don’t care for it.

Thank you for your message!
