standard bullshit

stop teasing little latina girls for having more body hair than white girls. honestly. it’s so gross. that is a child. a child that cannot control how her body is developing. her natural body should not have to put up with ur bullshit beauty standards.

instead, tell her that u love her bushy eyebrows or that it’s a-ok to have a little hair under ur arms or that girls can have peach fuzz and there’s nothing wrong with that. make sure latina girls know that they are beautiful and loved!!!

  • Itachi: *massacres his clan, tortures his brother, joins terrorist organization and assists with their murders of jinchuuriki, continues to mindfuck his brother until his dying moment even though it's completely beyond obvious that this is having less than desired consequences on Sasuke*
  • Fandom: He had good intentions! He thought he had no other choice! He was just a teenager!
  • Sakura: *lies to Naruto about having feelings for him, a lie which is immediately seen through and has no real consequences at all*
  • Fandom: UNFORGIVABLE! EMOTIONAL ABUSE! SELFISH! MANIPULATIVE! DELUSIONAL!
  • Me: ...she had good intentions? ...she thought she had no other choice? ...she was just a teenager? Here are some citations--
  • Fandom: *blocks me*

So, to all these people saying Ghost in the Shell is racist for using a white actress.

If Kusanagi was cast as a black woman, would you SJW racists be complaining?

Also, why is it only Europe and America that have to be diverse? Why is no one asking Japan or China to be more diverse? Because if you’ve ever stepped out of your little box and went to an Asian country (I’ve been to Japan, Taiwan, India, and South Korea several times) you’d see that they have NO DIVERSITY.

Like, Japan is 99% JAPANESE people. They don’t have large percentages of white, black, Hispanic, ANYONE. They have strange stereotypes for foreigners. They have conscious bias against anyone different from them (in most cases). It’s ingrained in their society.

But is anyone outraged about their lack of diversity? Their, dare I say, racism against non-Japanese? OF COURSE NOT. It’s fucking JAPAN.

Same goes for South Korea. And Taiwan. NO DIVERSITY.

The double standard is staggering. It makes me throw up in my mouth a little.

FYI, my many many Japanese cousins LOVED the live action GitS. They thought it was amazing. When I asked if they cared about Kusanagi being played by a white woman, the replied with “That’s a silly question. She’s pretty and talented. She looks a lot like Kusanagi.”

tl:dr GitS was awesome. Racist will never be happy. If she was cast black, I bet you wouldn’t be complaining. Mah reprezuntashun whaaaaaa. Dumbasses.

Another thing that makes me extremely sad and angry is that no matter which role Sam tries to play within his own family, he cannot win.

Sam rebels against John because he doesn’t want to keep hunting forever, he wants a better future and a safe life? He is selfish and he should listen to Dean. Sam tries to make excuses for Mary’s behavior (Dean did the same with John tbh) and tries to keep peace (clumsily) between his mom and his brother? He is naive and he should listen to Dean.

Sam is always shown to be in the wrong dynamic and I’m sick of that, I’m sick of the narrative always being biased against him, I’m sick of seeing Sam being punished for trying to fit into in own family.

I’m fucking tired of this.

Why is being average at something a bad thing? C is an average grade, which means you understood the material just as well as most people do, because that’s how you get “the average” of something. Why weren’t we told more often that it’s okay to be average? Like teachers and parents and other adults always said “do your best” but then they were disappointed if your best wasn’t up to their standards, which is bullshit. If my best is a C, then I did my best and that should count for something damn it. It is okay to be average, in fact it’s unrealistic to expect yourself or anyone else to be great, or even good, at everything. 

When my plus-sized or fat girlfriends tell me, “I wish I had a body like yours,” or “I don’t feel good in my body,” I don’t say, “Well, skinny-shaming hurts too and I also have low self-esteem.” Even though the latter is true, I don’t try to one-up my friends’ experiences and plights. I say, “You’re beautiful and your body is fine the way it is. Do what makes you happy but society’s beauty standards are bullshit. People who put down women because they’re larger are ignorant and they’re not telling the truth.” I assure and affirm them and am aware of my thin privilege. I may have low self-esteem and don’t think I’m very beautiful either but that’s irrelevant when talking about thin privilege, which I have. I really wish people who have light-skinned, thin or white privilege would stop one-upping dark-skinned, black and large bodies whenever they express low self-esteem due to correlating beauty privileges and standards. I get tired of hearing, “Well, one hurt isn’t worse than the other.”

Some Thoughts about Choi Seunghyun

Whether you consider yourself a VIP or not, the amount of hate this man has received for his mental illness and his use of marijuana is astounding. 

If you even think for a minute that this is acceptable, then please bounce up off my page, sit in a corner and re-evaluate your life. 

He has a mental illness, everyone deals with things differently, and in MY honest opinion, if he smokes weed to chill himself out and give his brain a break. 

WHO THE FUCK CARES! 

I understand it’s illegal in Korea. 

However; in Arizona if you chop down a cactus you can get 25 years in prison. 

In New Mexico, It’s forbidden for a female to appear unshaven in public.

Now you’re thinking, these aren’t drugs Admin T, Marijuana is a drug. It’s a fuckin plant! You don’t do anything special to it, except dry it out, crush it and smoke it. It helps people (google that shit) and T.O.P. can smoke all he wants, as long as he isn’t hurting anyone. 

Opioid use is something else entirely and very dangerous. People are out here dying over their use, and killing their bodies, but y’all screaming over some weed. 

Stop. 

International fans kill me with all that double standard bullshit. Especially, the ones (wypipo) who cry for y’all to stop slandering TOP over his weed use, but ignore the POC in America prison system for weed as well. We get locked up at a disproportionate rate compared to white folk. You raving over your faves, how about we just legalize it, cause weed is DEFINITELY not COCAINE.

Netizens are just as bad and I wanna say twice as psycho but; I’m not a netizen so I won’t touch on them. 

If you have nothing positive to say about T.O.P., if you don’t care about BigBang, stfu about them. Ignore the posts. 

I’ve seen too much bullshit, dragging Seunghyun through the mud and dragging his momma too? Are y’all trippin?? I really want to tag the blogs I saw doing that, but I’m not gonna be messy today. (TODAY)

Leave the man alone and let him recover in peace. 

TBH, if he says he doesn’t wanna be an idol anymore, and let all that shit go, I will miss his voice; but as long as he’s happy, I’m cool with that. 

Some of y’all ain’t happy with shit until people say ok fuck it I’m gone…

Chill fam…

So I’m working on the Kakashi’s Wish translation (the time travel comic) and there’s a part where Minato is quoting Hiruzen as saying that a Hokage has to consider every person in the village as his own family, which definitely comes from canon. I don’t believe canon ever calls Hiruzen out for his hypocrisy on this one, especially given that Boruto heavily relies on the theme of “Naruto the Hokage must put the village’s needs above his family’s wants”, but Hiruzen is such a hypocrite on this one.

Why do I say that? Because you can compare the treatment of Konohamaru, the Sandaime’s orphan grandson, to the other orphans in the series, and it’s not even close.

The reader first meets Konohamaru–who gets called “Honoured Grandson”–with his dedicated tutor Ebisu, who was in fact a tokubetsu jounin who specialized in teaching–in short, the person who Konoha considered to be the best teacher in all of Konoha. Ebisu got assigned to Konohamaru when he was just starting out at the academy, to teach him one-on-one. And sure, Konohamaru showed talent, but certainly less than Sasuke did; and one could easily argue that if Ebisu was going to have one-on-one time with anyone, it ought to have been Naruto, who was so massively underperforming considering the potential of his heritage and his chakra pool.

So Konohamaru, the Third’s grandson, got the best teacher in Konoha as his personal tutor, whereas other orphans didn’t get any tutor at all. Plus I will bet you a hundred thousand ryo that Konohamaru didn’t live alone, didn’t have to cook and clean for himself, and didn’t have to budget to be able to afford enough instant ramen to live.

“Everyone in Konoha is like my family”. Hiruzen could be such a great character because he’s such a flawed person, someone who 100% believes his own bullshit and who sincerely thinks he’s doing the right thing. His nickname of “the Professor” is too right because he’s honestly the worst of that kind of ivory tower stereotype that has these lofty ideals and believes in them so passionately but lacks the self-awareness to see how completely he’s failing these ideals in practice. He believes so hard that he’s Kindly Grandpa Hokage, but so many of the worst tragedies of the series are directly traceable to his actions or inactions.

Naruto the series came so close to giving some really powerful examples of how just intending to do the right thing is not enough (Itachi is an even more tragic example). The story shows so clearly how their choices massively backfired that I honestly forget sometimes that the story right to the end seems to think that the only thing that matters is that they were Good Guys Who Did the Right Thing. Don’t look any closer than that, don’t ask yourself if they did have other choices (even if they honestly didn’t perceive any), definitely don’t ask if some of the “wrong” choices wouldn’t have been more moral or had better results than the ones they actually took. (Would the death toll of innocents have truly been higher if Itachi had allied with his clan’s coup? If he had taken out Danzo and his sympathizers covertly to allow Hiruzen and the more moderate elements control? If he had attempted to whistleblow to Konoha at large all the fuckery that was going on? If he had decided “fuck you, fuck you, and especially fuck you, we’re out” and took li’l Sasuke and ran off to another country to open a dango and tomato stand? But I’m getting down a rabbit hole now. [Somebody write me an AU about Itachi and Li’l Sasuke’s Tomato ‘n’ Dango Shoppe.])

IDK if I should tag this hiruzen sarutobi or not? Does this count as character hate? IDK. If there are any Hiruzen fans who feel offended that this is tagged that, let me know and I will remove the tag and/or throw down with you about Hiruzen’s fuckboy-ness at your leisure.

Black people are literally CRUCIFIED for protesting for our LIVES. We are told we are animals, thugs, “snowflakes,” and lazy looking for something to complain about. We should be at work “pulling our selves up by our bootstraps” rather than protesting (as if you can’t hold a job and engage in activism.) When the police literally show up in riot gear and tear gas us and we respond accordingly as any rational human being would, we are in the wrong. But these white men are out in the middle of the day, drunk, brandishing decapitated pigs heads and getting in physical altercations with the police and look at the support they receive. The worst part? These assholes aren’t even protesting for a good cause. This “protest” is anti-Islamic and has attracted white supremacists, xenophobes and fucking neo-nazis. If you can’t admit to this ridiculous double standard, just admit you’re a racist and go.

This is for the ones who like to call Zayn a drug addict and now are saying Liam is high in all his snapchats posts. Look at your golden boy/angel without wings. Now is it going to be normalized? He’s a rock star now, isn’t he? He can do it. Or are you going to say that the fact he wrote it, doesn’t mean he experienced what it’s written in the lyrics?

"Why do you want to look like a man?"

I wear clothing from the men’s section of the clothing store. My leg hairs are longer than most of the hair in my head. I never wear any makeup, no matter if I’m going out to buy bread in the morning or if I’m going to a party. People often call me “sir”. Others hurl slurs at me, sometimes calling me a “dyke”, sometimes calling me a “faggot”, both showing their disapproval of my physical presentation. I see little kids asking their mothers, in whispers, if I am a boy or a girl. And people ask me all the time, why do I want to look like a man?

The answer is simple. I don’t.

And I do not look like a man.

I look like a woman who refuses to perform femininity.

My unshaven legs do not make me like a man, they’re MY legs, and MY hair, and I am a woman. My “boy’s” clothes are worn on my body, the body of a woman. My naked, unpainted face is the face of a woman. I am a woman, and this is not defined by a haircut or a choice of attire, or by lipstick or high heels, or boxer briefs and men’s deodorant worn over fuzzy unshaven armpits. There’s nothing manly about me.

I am a woman, not by choice, but by fact. Because “woman” is a reality imposed to me, from the day I was born and given a woman’s name, to the day I was six and I was told I couldn’t take off my shirt in a blazing hot summer day because one day I would have breasts, to last night when I walked home in a state of hyper-awareness, my house keys tightly clutched between my fingers, tracking the movements of every man in the dark streets.

I am a woman because, since before my own birth, when an ultrasonography picture informed my parents that I would be born with a vulva, I have been groomed to be a member of the woman class, the breeding stock class, the sex class, the lower class. I was taught to be accomodating and speak softly, to not bring attention to myself and to spare men’s feelings. I was taught that the boy who pulled my hair and threw his toy train at me, aiming for my head, probably did it because he liked me, and boys will be boys anyway. I learned that, if I did the same to him, I was a troublemaker. That my assertiveness is unladylike. That one day I would bear some man’s children, and this was pretty much destiny. That my worth was in my looks, more than in my brain. I am a woman because I was taught all these things, and I am a woman because people expect me to know these lessons by heart, and follow every one of them.

When people ask me why do I want to look like a man, what they’re actually asking is why am I not marking myself as a woman. They’re asking why do I fail to perform the role of femininity, to make myself pleasing and unthreatening to the eyes of the upper class, the man class. My mother once voiced her concerns to me, that my looks would make me a target for male violence, and she is right to be concerned. I am perceived as a member of the lower class who refuses to bear the marks and play the role imposed to me. I refuse to shave my legs to look like a pre-pubescent girl, innocent and vulnerable, or to wear shoes that force me to walk on the tips of my toes, slow and precariously balanced, and this makes men angry, because this is a counscious act of rebellion. This is me saying I am not theirs. I will not please them. I do not desire their approval or their attention. And men often get violent when we refuse to cater to them.

My choices of visual presentation make me a cautionary tale. I am the hairy, ugly, lesbian feminist, the one they warn other women about. “Don’t be like her”, they say, “or no man will ever want you”. But I don’t want them either, and I do not want to look like them, or be like them, or have anything to do with them. I want to be free from men and their bullshit standards. I want to strut around proudly, shamelessly unladylike, looking like a woman looks when she’s not covered in face paint and restrictive clothing, when she doesn’t care about pleasing men.

I do not look like a man, and nothing will ever make me look like one. I am pure, unadulterated woman. I choose myself over them, I choose women over them. If that makes them hate me, so be it. Because I am a woman, they would hate me no matter what I did.

anonymous asked:

I'm not a fan of Zayn, but it has NOTHING to do with race. To me, Zayn asking for help as a personal favor for a close friend (which I'm ok with him doing) and Anne asking for money for a charity are completely different situations. ALL the boys have asked for help for charities. Did any of the other boys ask for help to pay for a family member or close friend's surgery? No. Obviously you see things differently, but it's not always about race.

Right. There’s also religion and and perceived social class. Thanks for the intersectionality reminder.

There’s also the fact that Harry is the Golden Boy, that Zayn was seen as the one to break up the band, that Harry and Louis’ families get passes on things that others would get dragged for.
