A COUPLE OF FACTS

Hawaiian pizza is not a thing that most people like in Hawaii (I personally think it’s fuckin disgusting)

Pineapples are South American (possibly Brazillian) not Hawaiian

Wearing a “Hawaiian” shirt to a party does not automatically make it a luau nor does it make you Hawaiian

There is a difference between “Hawaiian” shirts and Aloha shirts

Authentic Hawaiian lei are made out of actual flowers and not that fucking neon plastic shit you haoles keep wearing

Hawaiian is an actual race ethnicity, therefore not all people from Hawaii are Hawaiian.

Hula is a fucking hard thing to master. Just because it looks pretty doesn’t mean it’s easy.

Hawaii is an illegally overthrown country that had it’s sovereignty violently ripped away from it in 1893 when our queen was held captive in her own home.

There is so much more to Hawaiian culture than this stupid neon beach party pineapple grass skirt tiki bullshit that you all keep spreading around. 

Please stop.

Witches Being Misunderstood is an Understatement

As I research this brilliant topic of Wiccan practices, origins, and history- lm learning of how stereotyped Im raised to believe witches and witchcraft alike are. Here’s some examples and rebuddles of what I mean…


“DEVIL WORSHIPPER” 

Who has ever claimed that was the point… Because I do not follow Christian beliefs to a T doesn’t make me a worshipper of satan. These claims were made by Christians who believed the worship of ANYTHING besides “God” (the big guy in the white robe) is their devil.


“Dont do black magick on me!”

 Anyone who has ever been remotely freaked out thinking we would curse their soul or ruin their lives with magic, has obviously never read the Wiccan Rede… what was it again? “An Ye Harm None, Do What Ye Will”? Huh…


“Eye of *animal*, Wing of *bird*” 

These ingredients aren’t literal, at all… Although my young, shameless self believed it to be, these are just names made up for herbs, plants, and flowers that are ingredients to remedies witches didn’t want abused.


“Why don’t you carry your broom to fly on?” 

This one makes me laugh. Woman used to literally ride broomsticks… maybe it’s a long story but people wanted to use an LSD like ointment and it was most affective on arm pits and … genitals. So they would lather up the broom handle and well… ride the broom into the night causing hallucinations. Weird shit right?


“You’re too colourful to be a witch” 

How? Did I miss the dress code assembly? Because I can wear whatever the fuck I want. Being Wiccan is positive and peaceful and colours have magick their own. If a witch does decide to wear only black, good for them- black means protection, safety, and grounding (amongst other things).


“Where’s your black cat?” 

Cats were once worshipped as symbols of multiple goddesses. In the beginning of the agricultural age, people brought cats with them where they went to ward off mice. Kittens were even wedding presents. Men went to war and women were stuck with the cat and were often widowed… since the woman lived alone- she was also likely to be accused of witchcraft. The Pope also claimed cats were satanic (?) so cats were burned alive - just like witches… but then the mice and rat population went sideways and here comes the Black Plague! Jokes on you - “Whatever you do shall be returns to you three times over”.


So here’s my explanation on stereotypes through research and the ability to look things up and not assume. These are based off of personal experience, first reactions… I also stuck to Wiccan beliefs along with my own personal thrown in the first one (sorry). There are witches out side of Wiccan who do worship Satan and that don’t follow the Rede but this is all biased. Correct me if I’m wrong anywhere here- I apologize already!

Blessed Be! )O(

The Zodiac Signs Stereotypes

Aries: “Fight me”
Taurus: “I need food” *hungry*
Gemini: talks shit
Cancer: cry me a river
Leo: “LETS PARTTYYY!”
Virgo: *organized* *prepared* “NO GERMS”
Libra: gossip girl. *FAKE ASF*
Scorpio: death.
Sagittarius: flake & can’t do relationships
Capricorn: basic bitch
Aquarius: aliens
Pisces: fish, just keep swimming.

Things can’t LOOK like a sexuality. It’s very tempting to make easy jokes about Dan looks like a lesbian, Dan the pastel video is gay - that’s actually problematic to say that. Stereotypes. I mean obviously correlation between behaviour and stereotypes do exist but when things are kind of feeding into heteronormativism and the harmfulness of everyone’s living inside of a patriarchy and the bullying that exists within the male system with things threatening their masculinity that's just a bad thing, you know. Stereotyping sexuality and behaviour and gender isn’t a good thing. So you can say “oh, that guy looks like a lesbian” or “oh, the flowers that’s a bit gay” and it’s not necessarily the most offensive thing but on a level it is slightly bad ‘cause you are reenforcing those things, you know.

Quotes from Dan (31/?)

I’m so happy he spoke up about this. I also love how he did it in such a non-threatening manner. He’s hoping to educate the people, who might not be aware of how harmful their actions and words can be. I stan the right people.

Every gay/bi female character on Degrassi has had a bad experience with a guy before dating girls. I’m really hoping that the writers make Rasha a character who hasn’t, because it’s important to break the false stereotypes that women only like women because they’ve been hurt by a man.

Eren is the best protagonist for a series like Attack on Titan.

A lot of people get frustrated that Eren is slow to jump into fights, like when he couldn’t transform to fight the female titan and when he froze up last episode during one of the Top 10 Anime Betrayals of all time. I think this misses out on a crucial point. Eren is actually very quick to join the action - but only when the situation fits the narrative of a sterotypical shounen. He’s the first one to go after killing the colossal titan when it appeared in episode 5. He saves Armin from being eaten alive while bleeding and missing a leg. Getting revenge for his mother and saving his childhood friend - classic shounen plotlines.

Eren is, essentially, a sterotypical shounen protagonist trapped in a storyline that subverts shounen tropes. He’s in the wrong genre. He views the world as very clear-cut good vs. evil. Humans are good, titans are bad, and humans will eventually succeed because they are on the good side. He believes it, so we believe it too. This is what makes it so shocking when the story deviates from shounen norms. (see: Levi’s squad and how the power of friendship failed to save them)

This is also the real reason why Eren hesitates when it is revealed that his friends were his enemies all along. It’s not because he’s a wimp or because he’s the new Shinji, it’s because his character isn’t prepared for a morally ambiguous world. However, this is what makes him a such a great protagonist for us. While we come to terms with the fact that the world of Attack on Titan isn’t as black and white as it first appeared, so does Eren, right alongside us.

C: I am so SICK and tired of everyone labeling black women and black girls for having an ‘attitude problem’ when we get upset! I get enough of this from strangers – especially white people – but I can’t stand getting it from my own father. It’s like when I have a VALID reason to be upset and unhappy because of something you did or how you put me in an uncomfortable situation and I tell you about it, or we are vocal about it SUDDENLY there’s a problem! Why are black women expected to be silent and just take abuse? Why aren’t we allowed to defend ourselves without being labeled as being angry or having a bad attitude?! Every ‘bad’ thing I’ve ever done or every time I defend myself from taking abuse is a reflection of how bad my attitude is! I won’t just keep taking abuse and not speak up for myself! Stop telling me to fix my attitude. Stop telling black women and black girls to fix our attitude! Start treating us with some respect! Then *maybe* we won’t have an “attitude” problem!

It never fails to surprise me how there are people who still think EVERYONE in Italy has olive skin, dark eyes and hair and/or think we all look like Italian-American gangsters in American films.

And of course we all speak with that fake stereotypical Italian accent, sometimes leaning more towards Super Mario, sometimes towards the Godfather. 

"Many of the anti-black women stereotypes originated during slavery.Long before sociologists perpetuated theories about the experience of black matriarchy, white male slave owners created a body of myths to discredit the contributions of black females; one such myth was the notion that they were all masculinized sub-human creatures.Black female slaves had shown that they were capable of performing so-called "manly" labor, that they were able to endure hardship, pain, and privation but could also perform those so called " womanly" tasks of housekeeping , cooking, and child-rearing. Their  ability to cope effectively in a sexist-defined "male" role threatened patriarchal myths about the nature of woman's inherent physiological difference and inferiority. By forcing black female slaves to perform the same work tasks as black male slaves, white ale patriarchs were contradicting their own sexist order that claimed woman to be inferior because she lacked physical prowess. An explanation had to be provided to explain why black women were able to perform tasks that were cited by patriarchs as job women were incapable of performing. To explain the black female's ability to surie without the direct aid of a male and her ability to perform tasks that were culturally defined as "male" work, white males argued that black slave women were not "real" women but were masculinized sub-human creatures."

C:I believe that people in this world don’t know that introverts exist and that it’s rather insulting to assume that I’m a rude bitch because my face isn’t plastered with a smile 24/7. I’m just feeling some type of way because my co-workers and people at school are always telling me that I look mean or that because I keep to myself that I’m some dull person who lacks personality. Usually I don’t care what people think about me but it gets irritating when others negative assumptions of me prevent them from even giving me a chance to get comfortable and show them my true self. I’ve tried in the past to smile more and to look less like I’m “mean mugging,” but it just didn’t feel genuine, since when I do smile at people I know it’s from the heart and a genuinely happy place, not because people are forcing me to smile more. I also believe the fact that I am black has something to do with my intimidating face but that’s a whole new conversation. I’ll just stick with the friends that I do have because they know I have a good heart.
