People of Latin American descent are regularly flooded with repetitive questions about who they are as a people and a culture. Whether they come from racist Twitter users or ignorant yet well-meaning colleagues and classmates, these comments only serve to homogenize disparate and unique cultures, as well as to further “other” Latinos in our society. It’s time to put the stereotypes to bed.

The differences between Spanish, Hispanic, Latino, Latinx, Mexican explained

if someone is talking about their faith, don’t you dare ever mock them or their religion. maybe you don’t believe in it, but they do, and it’s a source of love, courage, and hope for them. respect goes both ways.


Right firstly, I’m white so if I step over the boundary of supporter to **Whit3 Savour!!!1!!** please tell me.

But I was looking at Discworld merch & found my way onto the Paul Kidby website, and - well, putting aside for a moment the fact that every other character’s skin is painted white, whoever painted these (I assume Paul Kidby or someone endorsed by him) has actually painted Twoflower’s skin yellow.

How to make a character look Asian? Ah yes, let’s use the crudest, most garish, plainest, yellowist yellow paint there is -

Some people would probably argue that these miniatures are just caricatures and therefore simplifications are necessary - only Asian skin ‘simplified’ isn’t yellow, a requirement for caricatures is not an excuse for racism, and the other miniatures’ skin have been painted in such pain-staking detail to be exactly the right type of pink to convey an entirely realistic whiteness. The so-painted white characters are the opposite of simplified; it’s only when it gets to the Asian character that the racist caricatures are used.

Twoflower is also the only character of colour out of all the miniatures on the Paul Kidby miniature page (x). Characters whose physical appearance isn’t even specified have been assigned white skin. 

What worries me is that I don’t even think Paul Kidby (or whoever created and painted these) realises this is problematic.

Anyway - someone’s probably noticed this before and made a much better post on it, and again because I am white I don’t want to go all white saviour but given that I run this blog to appreciate & endorse Discworld, it’s crucial that I also highlight disgusting and very, very obviousracism like this, otherwise I’m running this blog wrong.

I have to write a paper about gender stereotypes in media
and my prof said we could do a song (and literally the entire reason she was inspired to let us do that is bc she heard Blank Space on the radio on her drive to class and I dleted)
but the point is what do you guys think is the most GENDERED song that Taylor has lmao
I feel…You Belong With Me or Better Than Revenge but I am NOT!!!!!!!! LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!! SUBMITTING A PAPER TO ANOTHER HUMAN BEING DETAILING TAYLOR’S PAST MISTAKES?!?!?!
I cannot BELIEVE….
then I mean wtf a g e n d e r s t e r e o t y p e from a taylor swift song and my best options are her slutshaming can I delete my blog please lmao like why did she do this to me why am I being HAUNTED!!
I mean every thing else is so like…miniscule haha
like I could do Fifteen? but the issue is that the stereotypes in BTR and YBWM are…obvious lmao and probably widely researched aLREADY!IT WOULD BE THE OBVIOUS!! CHOICE!! EASY!!

I’m gonna need people to comprehend that femininity does not equate “enforcing/enduring gender roles”.

Yes I like pink, and makeup, and like to curl my hair, and wear cute lingerie. No, I will not make you a sandwich.

Stop telling girls who are feminine that they are “supporting patriarchy”.

Over the years I’ve been less angry about petty things and more filled with this deepset rage against societal structures as a whole and it’s kinda like having a really fucking pissed off sun in my stomach and oh god I’m on fire right now I’m burning from the inside out someone pour water on me I am become ash what is happening asglausgoigajsjsd

I’m so frustrated right now because I’m being made to wear a dress simply because I was born with two X chromosomes and all the fun body parts that comes with them. Seriously, my band director is choosing gender stereotypes over functionality. Playing bass clarinet in a full-length dress is extremely difficult, especially when you have to switch really fast between bass and Bb clarinet and it’s something he’s never had to do so he’s making a decision over an issue he will never personally encounter. I love playing bass clarinet but if the director of the ensemble I’m in is going to force me to wear a dress while playing it, I’ll never play it in their ensemble. And I know it’s not just my director, it’s a district-wide policy but it’s FUCKING STUPID. Your genitals should not dictate your concert attire. I understand the need for uniformity but we should either get to choose between a tux or a dress (or whatever options) or have one uniform we all wear. I’d rather the entire band wear chicken suits instead of having to conform to gender stereotypes.
