i changed the coloring on this

Listen, Nadia Pym is an inspiration and I can’t believe she’s on the possible chopping block of comics Marvel is thinking of cutting/cancelling. Young girls NEED Nadia, need to READ The Unstoppable Wasp and see girls and girl geniuses are important and valid and sought out and that they should dream big, reach for their goals, and never give up. All the girls mentioned and all girls recruited by Nadia thus far are girls of color and different ethnic backgrounds with relatable stories so far! I love Janet with my when being; Janet inspired me as a kid, but I understand she can’t reach younger audiences as easily anymore, but that doesn’t make her any less desirable, or replaceable, or insignificant. Times are changing and so are young girls. Young readers, new readers, NEED Nadia and these Unstoppable Wasp comics.

I finished it!!!! I might change the colors tho idk the background is probably. Too pastel???? So maybe it’s not finished but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ have my tiny gaymer bf anyways

anonymous asked:

can I ask how you feel about studying anthropology? I want to do so but as a woc am wary of the field (if you choose to answer this, thank you✨).

anthropology is an extremely interesting field of study & i think everyone should take at least one physical (biological) anthropology and cultural anthropology class if possible. but, like with most social sciences (& sciences in general), anthropology has a history of being used as a tool to support / perpetrate racism, ethnic supremacy, imperialism, sexism, etc. unfortunately, there are still professors, researchers, and archaeologists who subscribe to and teach students anthropology rooted in an ethnocentric worldview. but there are many who don’t, & i wish for their teachings and research to mold anthropology and other sciences into what they were developed to do–to deepen our understanding of our world. 

women, people of color, & other marginalized groups entering these fields will fuel this change. my interest in cultural anthropology developed out of my interest in my own culture(s) and the connection i felt when learning about other people in the world–our differences & commonalities. my worldview is and has been entirely different from one of ethnocentrism, sexism, etc. & i was, of course, timid and concerned when i chose to study a science that has such a deep rooted history in such things. but i knew that i, and other women of color, have the power to transform it with time and effort. science needs us. 

one thing that inspired me was learning of an archaeological finding of graves belonging to a paleolithic tribe. the graves were of women, and they had been buried with animal skulls & other valuables. the archaeologists concluded that these items could not have been hunting trophies or be of spiritual worth because the circumstance that they were buried with women. i realized how so much of our history and understanding of the world has been completely misunderstood simply because scientists project their own western-centric & sexist ideas onto evidence that deserves no such bias. it’s extremely important for us to know that theories & conclusions that were and have been believed need to be re-examined and revised. 

i could talk forever, but believing that we can change sciences with shameful histories comes with needing to evaluate our own selves. we cannot hold the belief that the western world and our language is the basis for which all other cultures, societies, languages, and religions compare. we can’t believe that tribalism is less evolved. we can’t exploit people under the guise of wanting to understand them. we can’t disrespect spiritually sacred tombs. we have to truly look into ourselves & understand our reasonings for choosing to study anthropology, archaeology, sociology, linguistics, etc. and to let go of any harmful mindsets we might hold onto, so that we can do transformative work and research, and so that we can use what we learn to help others in impactful, inventive ways 

i can write so much more tbh, & i will probably edit this with new ideas as they flow through my mind, but this condenses my feelings about the topic!

my opinion on some jin stans

i’m sure someone will find this ignorant.

i just want to say, first and foremost, that i’m keeping all lines of communication open here. this was made for discussion. you can talk to me. if you disagree, by all means. go ahead.

jin stans are a thing. i’m pretty much a jin stan. and i think jin stans do have it hard in lots of ways. the only thing that makes me feel like im not a jin stan, is that i dont constantly feel sad about whatever “plight” i have.

being a jin stan is not my plight. it is not the color of my skin, the gender i’m seen as. it’s not a body type or a mental illness. it’s not my sexuality; it’s not some sort of disadvantage that’s been put onto me by society. it’s nothing i can’t change. 

it’s certainly not making me marginalized in any way or shape or form, especially not in a way that will physically harm me in the future. the fandom experience i have is completely within my control. if there’s anything you should have power over, it’s your fandom experience.

So, I had some thoughts..

To start off with: I am not shipping Kara with anyone else other than her being a strong and independent woman.

I am not the biggest fan of Mon-El and here’s why:
It has nothing to do with him being a white boy, it has everything to do with him being the Prince of Daxam. He was a slave owner. Yes he might have “seen the errors of his ways” now, but that doesn’t change the fact that he did own slaves and as Kara said, benefited from it.

So here I am, a person of color, having to watch a superhero that I respect and love, being written to be in a relationship with a slave owner.

When Kara finally learns who he really is and says that she deserves better, I’m over here like “Yes, girl! That’s the Supergirl I know!”
Only for her to seemingly forget all about it in the Flash episode… If the network insists on pushing this redeeming villain scenario, they should have stuck with Kara trying to teach him how to help others.

To end this off, I know it’s just a tv show, but I think season 2 has unfolded in an unfortunate way. 
I have nothing against the actor playing him, but I have everything against the character.

I just needed to get this off of my chest.
