"If you write/draw something that abusers use to groom then you're as bad as the abuser!" Interesting. I mean, when someone possesses an illegal firearm and murders somebody, obviously we go after the gun manufacturer, right? Or if someone steals a truck and uses it in a deadly attack on pedestrians, obviously we arrest the truck makers, right? Oh wait, no, we don't do that! Because what Person A chooses to do with a product (even ones MADE to cause harm, like weapons) is Person A's fault!
actually we DO go after the gun manufacturers because they’re fucking rolling in money while violence rises, and then try to use the argument “people kill people” and saying that the right to bear arms is why we should keep our guns
because having 11,000 counts of gun violence a year, whereas australia usually has maybe 3 and the UK in the hundreds somewhere, is really something to brag about.
but the whole gun thing isn’t for this blog so.
you’re right though. it’s the abuser’s fault for grooming. not the content.

Now that we’re under the 24 hour mark for my deadline, I’ll be switching over to rambling text posts soon just to get this stuff out of my brain and onto my blog. I normally like adding screencaps and careful explanations, but… not today.
do you know what i want to see in season 2 of shadowhunters?
maia being unapologetically black and loving it!
giving absolutely zero fucks about anyone who finds her loving herself for who she’s and her blackness as ‘intimidating’ or ‘threatening’. for real like goddamnit im sick and tired of seeing how the media continuously reprimands black woman for loving themselves. hence why most narratives surrounding black woman in the media always consist of so much self-loathing and hatred.
like damn black women deserve to be happy too!
because here’s the thing: BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL! BLACK GIRLS ARE AWESOME!
* i can already hear all the ‘white feelings’ i have hurt by saying that oops so not sorry about it*
it would be so refreshing to see a character like maia embrace her identity as a black woman as being a positive aspect about herself. that her being black is something she’s 100% proud of and cherishes; something she takes in every stride she walks.
the fact that an unapologetic black girl is deemed a ‘threat’ by white audiences (especially white female audiences) goes to show how the media along with society try to reinforce that a black woman that is confident and assertive about herself is inferior. trust me it’s so hard to unlearn internalised misogynoir. it’s a daily process in itself
no, it shouldn’t be like that! it should be encouraged, praised even! that’s why movements like black girl magic and black girls rock are so important to the black community in the first place. but some of y’all white feminists™ always have to come along spoil it for us. hmm i wonder why? anyways i’m off topic.
tl;dr : maia roberts being unapologetically black is a big YES!
