it really makes my skin crawl how much cishet people see the hatred and oppression of lgbtq people as like this hilarious joke??

they all just have a good old laugh about the people who preach for us to be burned, scoff at the parents who kick their children out on the streets, giggle about the governments who try to ban any mention of us and then turn around and continue to prop up systems that hurt us all while telling us what great allies they are

it grosses me out so much

Sexism is not some abstract concept. Neither is feminism. They are my life. I cannot ignore them. 

Sexism is in the books I read, the music I listen to, almost the air I breathe. It’s when I can’t find rapper who are women, or songs devoid of slurs and general disrespect; when I can’t find music or media that doesn’t imply objectification or disrespect. 

Sexism is when I walked down the street at 14 and got cat called by men in cars, going who knows where. Sexism is when I feel every day that I have to do twice as well to achieve half as much. Sexism was when I first began realizing it might be so much harder to do what I want to do because I am a woman. Sexism is when men have the audacity to call “picking up” women an “art” or a “science”, as if women are something less than they, as if women are objects to be won, prizes, not human beings with real thoughts and emotions and ideas. 

I am frustrated, most of all, that both men and women seem to divide feminism up into a word with a negative connotation, a word that no longer connotes what it is defined to mean. I cannot identify as a feminist with an asterisk. I simply identify as a feminist. 

I am frustrated every day of my whole life. Not a single day has passed since I was maybe 8 years old that I do not think about this, that I do not worry about this, that I wonder when this will change. Not one, single day. 

thinking about what’s going on in tibet makes me so mad. 

not only is our culture being destroyed by the chinese government (the GOV, not the people!), we aren’t even allowed to die in peace. our own spiritual leader, the dalai lama, was told by the chinese government how he will be reincarnated. 

yes, you read that right. that’s like saying the president of America will decide who goes to heaven or hell.

no one pays attention to us either. we have to set ourselves on fire just to get attention

unfortunately, pictures of tibetans self-immolation get turned into “funny jokes” on the internet. (note: commentary below is from me)

but no one cares about any of that. 

all america wants to do is sit down with the dalai lama and talk about how he’s able to eat dal everyday without rest. they just want to discuss how “peaceful” he is and how he’s such a role model. but really, the only reason he (and tibetans in general) are peaceful is because if they weren’t, they would die.

the “peaceful tibetan” stereotype is so disgusting because it makes it look like tibetans are fine with the way things are when, in actuality, they only have one reason they are forced to be nice, quiet, and respectful;

 they just want to survive.

im so tired of villains either

  • being noticeably physically disabled, with their impairment being used to mark them out as different next to the abled heroes and somehow represent them being morally ‘tainted’ by portraying them as not ‘’’whole’’’ or as ‘’’deformed’’’
  • being ambiguously mentally disabled and labelled simply as ‘mad’, ‘crazy’, ‘odd’ etc and used to suggest that people who are mentally disabled have no choice but to be violent
  • having a chronic or terminal illness or impairment which they go to any lengths to cure, ending up hurting people in the process, scarily this often ends up in a ‘master race’ plotline, blaming disabled people for an ideology often used to enact violence against us

im tired and angry, its been done hundreds of times, disabled people are always the fucking villains its harmful and unoriginal, do something else

Social Justice Survey

Hello!

  A friend and I are in a statistics class together, and for our final project we are required to survey a large population on any topic we want. So we chose Tumblr, and more specifically, social justice on Tumblr.

  This is a completely anonymous survey, and it will only take you about a minute (it’s all multiple choice). We’ll post the results publicly sometime in the next few weeks. It would help us a TON if you could take it! Reblogging this post would help us out a ton as well!

I kinda bothers me that nobody talks about how shit the term “politically correct” is. Like when white people are like “you can’t use the n word because that’s not pc anymore” or “it’s not politically correct to use the r word anymore apparently” like shut the fuck up and realize that you can’t say slurs because of hundreds of years of dehumanizing people with them, not because some omnipresent being named politics randomly decided that you can’t say that word anymore
