stereotyper

I’m in college, so for spring break I went to see my family. While away, I continued to text my close friends (three other girls), and we all went through the same thing. Each of our families (especially our mothers) commented multiple times on our weight. We all were being told that we had gained weight, were “too fat,” that our clothes were too tight, that we shouldn’t wear certain clothes, that we better not gain more weight and should be on a diet, etc.
To my family, I wish I told them that my weight isn’t their concern. I wish I told that I am healthy, so that is the only thing that matters.
To friends’ families, I wish I could tell them their daughters are perfect the way they are. That they can wear what they want to wear, that they are beautiful, that their health matters (not the weight), that they aren’t fat (and even if they were, that has no bearing on how beautiful they are).

“You shouldn’t stereotype us—”

If you have actively stereotyped minorities for years, the majority is definitely getting stereotyped too. You don’t get to start whining about stereotyping now that people aren’t afraid to throw similar insults back at you.

You’ve made your bed, now lie in it and stop complaining, because you sure as hell didn’t give a damn about stereotyping when you were the one doing it.

This Gorgeous Photo Series Crushes Stereotypes About Black Masculinity

Loftin shot the photo series after seeing the stark contrast between the Google results for “black boy in hoodie” and “white boy in hoodie.”

In contrast to the images of black men depicted in the Google image search, Loftin’s poses are sweet, affectionate, and sometimes silly.

Black people, and black men specifically, exist outside of the stereotypes that have been created for us by the media and those that control it,” he told.

They always portray us as dangerous thugs in black hoodies, nothing new. And the fact that whites still believe that black people are dangerous to them proves just how ingrained white supremacism is in this country!

This man just wanted to say that racism is still a reality we have to deal with. Inferential racism certainly won’t go away by no one talking about it. We have to accept that there is a serious problem in America, that many white Americans are raised with these subtle cues all around them telling them to “fear blacks”.

Stop making up false stories about us, we are just people, just a little darker.

Kal Penn is tweeting out his old audition scripts — and they’re incredibly racist

  • Stereotypes, accents and nameless “foreign” characters are all the reality when looking for work as a South Asian actor.
  • On Tuesday, actor Kal Penn tweeted out a series of snapshots from scripts that he’d auditioned for in the past, most of which included racist caricatures of South Asian culture.
  • The first screenshot showed a call for a “Gandhi Lookalike,” “Snake Charmers” and “Fire Eaters.” Read more. (3/15/2017 1:15 PM)

Trans guys are allowed to and desire to be strictly masculine in their presentation.
Yes gender norms are total horse manure but I’m a guy who wants to present entirely masculine. Not just androgynous.
Stop telling trans people that ‘you of all people should understand that boys should wear dresses or makeup, too!’ I wanted to die when I wore dresses and I don’t think that’s changed. I don’t mind makeup but even still I don’t wear it in a way that society sees as typically feminine so leave me and other masculine trans guys alone!!!
If you’re a trans guy who doesn’t feel comfortable presenting typically feminine in any way this post is for you. I totally understand. You aren’t a bad person and you aren’t reinforcing negative gender stereotypes.

The fetishization of “opinion” and “free speech” is horrifying, people thinks it means they can saying anything anywhere without ever being criticized or held accountable or disagreed with regardless of their education on a subject.
