30 Days 21 Hunger Games Argo Drive Pay it Forward Lone Ranger Fantastic 4

Lemme reblog again and let you know why casting that white woman as the female lead in “Drive” was so fucking wrong and fucked up.

Director literally gave her the part because she looked like someone he would want to protect (read: innocent, delicate, helpless).

These traits were ones he literally did not consider a Latina for. He picked her specifically because he fit that damsel in distress imagine that’s been coded as white (and what’s made women of color “unrapeable”).

Rape jokes are not jokes. Woman-hating jokes are not jokes. These guys are telling you what they think. When you laugh along to get their approval, you give them yours.

a 14 year old indian kid figured out that if the federal government changed their official font from times new roman to garamond they could save $234 million a year (source)

his name is Suvir Mirchandani

omitting identity from these things is how poc contributions and achievements end up getting erased altogether

I made these to put up around my school for my school’s GSA. They are quotes from some little known bisexuals about their bisexuality.

Lets stop bisexual erasure and remember, bisexuality is real!

Bisexual erasure is a huge thing, even in the LG community. Let’s raise the awareness!

Mary Bowser, former slave of the Van Lew family, infiltrated the Confederacy by working as a servant in the household of Jefferson Davis. Bowser was assumed to be illiterate, and as a black woman was below suspicion. Practically invisible, she was able to listen to conversations between Confederate officials and read sensitive documents, gathering information that she handed over to the Union.

This needs to be a movie. Like, now.

I’d watch this movie.

How is this not a movie?

The logic of those who argue “Get Over It” is set up to privilege reckless behavior by placing the blame on the audience. But if the joke isn’t actually racist, then why have so many racist slurs been hurled at those of us promoting #CancelColbert? The outrage surrounding our criticism is about white liberals feeling entitled to engage in hate speech under the guise of “satire.” These white liberals are not mad that we pointed out racism, they are mad that they now have to consider the ways in which they may be racist.

Okay we have quite a few anon asks regarding our tone here of being “too harsh” or “too angry” and I want to address this idea of “debate” and “argument” that keeps coming up in several of them.

Speaking out on harm caused by racism, cultural appropriation, exotification, fetishization, objectification, IS NOT A DEBATE OR ARGUMENT for others not affected to argue otherwise.  OUR HUMANITY IS NOT UP FOR DEBATE.

Perhaps unthink that mentality first before framing what we say here as some debate team competition.  Also consider how royally fucked up the whole concept of being “rational/objective” (meaning not emotionally invested) is when applied to speaking out about harm, abuse, etc. and how it benefits abusers, racists, etc. by taking away our emotions and how show of emotion has been used to invalidate our words, to silence us, by taking our agency away from us to talk about how we are affected.

If someone doesn’t “seem” disabled to you, maybe it’s because they’ve been forced to develop a huge and complex system of coping mechanisms in order to try and survive in an ableist world. It’s probably that.

There’s over 300 languages spoken in London

Less than half of the population is white british

There are large areas with little to no white population

so if your show is set in London and has an all white cast you’re not even being remotely accurate
