free race

Attention TSR Blogs

@welcometothisby and I had so much fun watching Free Rein tonight, we want to do it again on the regular. And we were thinking, “The more the merrier!” So anyone who would like to join us is welcome!

Tech requirements:

  • A computer with Chrome installed + Netflix Showgoers extension
  • A Netflix account (you can get a 30 day free trial)
  • Free time between 9:30-10:00pm EST.

Netflix Showgoers is a cool browser extension that lets you share a stream through a link. It also has a built in chat feature that allows you to choose a nickname. We found it to be simple and easy to use.

If you’d like to join us, please send me a message or reply to this so I’ll know to send you the link when it’s time. We had tons of fun and we’re looking forward to the next time!

Hogwarts Houses as Nostalgic Things
  • Gryffindor: the sound and smell of bonfires at night, being free to race among the trees wherever you want, the sound of a tent zipper being opened or closed
  • Slytherin: digging up old toys and relics, flipping through photo books and seeing your old face, the sight of the room you used to take lessons in
  • Ravenclaw: the smell and sound of your old classroom; glue, children giggling, a teacher's soft voice. The smell of the art room- paint, clay, and something indistinguishable
  • Hufflepuff: the smell of a freshly opened box of crayons, untouched and perfect, the sound your drawer makes when it opens and shuts, the feeling of sunshine and a slight breeze as you stand somewhere you do every year

hey? I really enjoy your voltron art. But you really really shouldn't use McClain in Lance's name :(

i understand where ur coming from anon.But i just want to state my personal opinion on the whole matter so u understand why i do use it. i don’t think your name identifies your race/ethnicity that’s kinda close minded.im mixed and my last name sounds p white but does that diminish my filipino blood?Does that make me less filipino?To say your name has to fit the race you’re born kinda feeds into stereotypes.

I find it funny when people will tell kids of mixed ethnicity’s to choose one ethnicity over the other but will tell bi/pansexual that it’s ok to like both/all genders and there’s no reason to choose. 

How about before you tell that precious mixed baby that they need to choose, instead of celebrating themselves to the fullest, maybe you should a) look at yourself and b) realize that whatever ethnicity a person chooses to be is none of your goddamn business then c) log off and think about your double standards.

Focus on yourself and your culture and sexuality and stop intruding on other people celebrating who they are. Ok?

Hi. Sorry my English really bad. I see your thread on twitter about poc. Can me (white girl) say 'SH has much POC' so i not have to say 'sh have one chinese man, one half mexico half lebanese woman, etc.' Or is it mean to say? Please educate me!!! Thank in advance.

Okay, I’m going to clarify the proper use of the term people/person of color (POC).

Where does POC come from?
It’s important to note that the term of color came from people-first language so it would not be quite right to say POC women or POC actors. It’s not the worst if you do this but it’s still awkward in the “ATM machine” sense. You should instead say women of color or actors of color.

When can you use the term POC?
POC is a great term to quickly encompass all non-white people, especially when referring to instances where they appear as a group like your example with a diverse cast containing many different races and ethnicities. Using it in that case is 100% fine. 

When should you not use POC?
When referring to individuals or to media that speaks directly to a specific race, it’s important not to throw it under the umbrella of POC. Magnus is an Asian* bisexual; Moonlight is about a gay black man. These characters and stories speak specifically to certain groups, so designating it as overall “POC” media erases the individual race/ethnicity for whom the characters/stories speak to.

*Truthfully, even “Asian” is a bit of a large umbrella because Asians are a huge diverse group within themselves. Issues that affect East Asians do not always overlap with those that affect South East Asians do not always overlap with those that affect South Asians. For example, my sister, a SE Asian who is very light, does not have same difficulties moving through airport security as her husband does, who is South Asian.

Why is it not okay?
This erasure is significant because for several reasons:

1. It leads people to assume that POC can be interchangeable. And when people feel that one “POC” can stand in to represent “diversity” for all POC, it results in them thinking they’ve done enough to cast one or two brown people and call it a day. So when I talk about how I don’t have a lot of rep, I get given a long list of non-white characters as if to say, “You have these, why are you still complaining? Isn’t it enough?”

First of all, even with the entire list of POC it isn’t enough to make up for the number of white characters that have dominated media for decades and second of all, once you reduce that already small list to their individual races/ethnicities, there’s even less.

2. It results in people not understanding the specific stereotypes that apply to certain races/ethnicities. For example, Magnus is especially susceptible to desexualization and feminization as an Asian man so things that are okay to talk about with him (i.e. being very…large) would not be okay to do with a character who is a black man, as black men are frequently hypersexualized.

Why do POC sometimes use the term POC instead of their race then?
These questions spawned after Harry did, in fact, use the term person of color and I want to clarify that a person of color using that particular term to stand in solidarity with other people of color is completely different than white people using it to lump us all together. For those of us who aren’t white, I think it was clear to us what he was doing – underlining the importance of any LGBT+ POC being recognized over white LGBT+ – which is a nuance I guess gets lost when you are outside the community.

So yes, some of us under specific circumstances will choose to use the identifier POC rather than our specific race for purposes of solidarity. However, as I said in that thread, white people cannot stand in solidarity with us. They can only stand beside us as allies. So it carries completely different connotations when used by them. It only serves to throw all POC under the same umbrella.

Anyway, I hope this helps clear things up; I realize it can be complex and especially on social media platforms where people like to type shorthand, it’s easy to just throw it in wherever. And frankly, some of us are guilty of this, too. But basically, just remember that while diversity of all kinds is important to all people of color, each race/ethnicity has unique issues to overcome and unique experiences they identify with. So the continued use of POC as an umbrella perpetuates the idea that one “POC rep” is enough for all of us and meant to be shared among us, which is a concept that really needs to end if we are to further push diversity in media.

“Are you sure you can stay on the phone? You won’t fall asleep?”

Yoongi being so far away was always like slow torture, and you weren’t sure if your nightly phone calls made it better or worse. Tonight he sounded extra lazy after a long day, but insisted on calling you anyhow.

“I’m sure; I just really wanted to hear your voice.”

I'm watching Free Rein on netflix right now, and while I'm not sure how I feel about it, Freddy Carter is definitely my new Sean fancast.

I haven’t seen that show or heard of him before BUT OH MY GOD THOSE CHEEKBONES????
