google it yourself

a guide to when tumblr says someone/something is problematic
  • look for sources in the post if there are no sources they are probably making shit up tbh
  • if there are sources READ THEM the poster could be taking stuff out of context or misreading and besides its good to actually read them and be informed about the whole topic not just the highlights
  • don’t blindly trust the call out posts
  • if you doubt something google it yourself and if you feel the need to make a correction on the post

Nope, sorry. If you wanted me to ignore you, you probably shouldn’t have publicly commented on my post. This is not the only comment like this. You are one of many people to try to find a way around what was said/meant/implied, whatever. Because there MUST be some other meaning.

First of all, the person quoted was not the only person to make such comments and they ALL mean the same thing. “I can overlook that she’s black because the costumes are well made.” There is nothing positive about that statement. Period. Just stop trying to pretend that there is. It implies that if your costume isn’t good enough, people won’t overlook the fact that you aren’t white. As if being black is some negative factor that should be counted against you. 

Second, you are also wrong about “literally almost all of the cosplays you did were of characters who are actually white”. No. No. No. I am going to assume you do not read comic books and correct your ignorance here. Out of the 10 characters I am cosplaying in that set, guess how many have black versions in the comics. Actually no, we’re going to say out of 8 because 2 are aliens. Martian Manhunter is NOT WHITE. He’s an alien who happens to shape shift into a black man for his secret identity sometimes. Dejah Thoris is also NOT WHITE. She is also from Mars but not the same comics as Martian Manhunter. White is not the default race of the whole galaxy, people.

 So that’s 8 characters left in the set and guess who are the ONLY ones out of 8 who DON’T have a black version in the continuity that I based my costumes on?? She Hulk and Colossus. Yep, the ones with full body paint. 2 out of 8. That’s it. That’s all. Everyone else is either black all the time, or black in the continuity that I based my costume on. 

This once again proves my point, that this type of discrimination is not based on ‘accuracy’ or anything else. White supremacy allows people to make the assumption that everything SHOULD be white, and that deviations from this norm must be noted, detracted OR if you’re so 'lucky’, can be 'overlooked’ if you’re 'good enough’.

I want to thank every person on this post who complimented me on my work, or expressed joy at seeing their favorite character represented, and even the people who negatively criticized my costume work based on my sewing skills not impressing them enough. Because they saw me as a whole person and not just my race being something they had to overlook.

I randomly remember an old high school english teacher complaining about not making enough money, though he was making 56k a year. He went this rant how about it was nothing and he should be making more money. This was years ago.

I recently found out that to be in the top 1%, your income has to be just 34k a year. That really puts things in perspective. What might not be a lot to one person can mean a fortune to another.

*I should mention this is to be in the top 1% of the entire world, not just within the U.S*
My 5 reasons to love Zayn

1)He’s strong. You always need someone like that in your life, or you need to be that person. He’s gone through a lot of shit for 5 years but he dared, he was brave enough to make the whole world hate him again, but he tweeted freepalestine despite he knew a lot of hateful tweets coming. Hell sometimes I don’t reblog a shit because I know my followers on tumblr can unfollow me for that. But, since Zayn doesn’t have the mentality of “let sleeping dogs lie” he risked losing followers, getting hate and all.   

2)He’s generous. He donated a lot of money to many charities. I don’t have an exact record of those donations, but you can google it yourself.

3) He’s caring. We know how much Zayn loves his family and friends. I personally love his love for his mom. He always says that he’s grateful to be a part of one direction, bc thanks to this, he could help his family financially. 

4)He has a steady personality. Even though he’s a super star at a young age, he’s never lost himself. He’s never abandoned himself to fame and he’s kept being the person he’s always been. He’s never played to cameras, never showed off. He’s just kept being this awkward, shy guy. 

5)He’s an intellectual. I’m not saving gifs on my pc, but we all saw masterposts showing that Zayn’s such an intellectual boy. He reads, he loves Shakespeare, he sometimes invents new words and he always sounds  distinguishingly intelligent.

I was utterly disgusted when I was told to look up “nigga house” on google maps..this shows that the “nigga house” is the WhiteHouse where our current president Obama resides. Oh and if you dont believe me, then go onto google maps yourself and search “nigga house”. Please reblog this & get this post the attention that it deserves.

Not that poster but just came to say biromantic homosexuality is a legit thing?! You can be romantically attracted to men and sexually attracted to women. That is not bisexuality. Please don't shut people out like that- google it and educate yourself please please please. Don't marginalize people's sexualities just because they aren't as well known or as oppressed secure as yours .

Nooo, that is literally called bisexuality.

You literally CANNOT be a lesbian if you are attracted to men at all. Period.

If you are attracted to men romantically, sexually or both, I don’t care! YOU’RE NOT A LESBIAN. You are bi! It’s the very first part of the very first word in that horrendous little setup you’ve got going there. jfc.

Well hell. Why even bothered getting your head checked when you can just Google symptoms and diagnose yourself? But really. As a professionally diagnosed autistic, all I have to say is good luck getting help from professionals with a label alone. :/

i give this troll a 2/10 and i personally wont be answering egotistical asks like this one, they will be deleted.
