stop being white

Okay, here’s the problem with the idea that oppressed groups can “alienate allies” by not being nice enough:

You shouldn’t be an ally because oppressed groups are nice to you. You should be an ally because you believe they deserve basic human rights. Hearing “I hate men” shouldn’t make men stop being feminist. Hearing “fuck white people” shouldn’t make white people stop opposing racism.

Your opposition to oppression should be moral, and immovable. Your belief that all humans should be treated with equal respect shouldn’t be conditional based on whether or not individual people are nice to you.

Support muses of color.

Stop ignoring them for white muses.

Dismantle whitewashed/ faceclaims. 

End the idea that a muse can’t ship with a non-white muse because the muse ‘isn’t into ___ people.”

Destroy labeling roleplayers of female muses of color as ‘they only care about shipping/smut’ because they like to write romantic threads.   

Avoid racist stereotypes in writing. 

Stop being overcritical of non-white muses that have the same flaws as white muses. 

 STOP. MISTREATING. MUSES. OF. COLOR. 

Stop being a dick to white people, stop being a dick to straight people, stop being a dick to men, stop being a dick to cis people, just because they’re not the minority does not make it cool to be disrespectful toward them. Be kind to people no matter their race, sexuality, sex or gender, if you fail to do that then you are part of the issue you claim to be fighting.
Tumblr White Guilt

So I follow people like @ummquestion and see all the white guilt posts and it’s just so… cringey. Like, you see posts like

“Ugh white people are so stupid (p.s. I’m white, watch how I hate myself so you POC people will see me as an ally and feel better about yourselves. please love me)”

Or

“On behalf of all white people, I’m sorry! We’re horrible people, myself included!”

And I just shake my head because it’s so pathetic. They’re like groveling at our feet and it’s so unwarranted and unnecessary. I’m just like, ugh please stop. It’s not being humble, you’re not atoning for the sins of your ancestors or other white people. You are you, and you don’t represent or hold the guilt of the actions of anyone but yourself. Get off the floor, you’re just making your own self look pathetic. Stop looking for brownie points because you’re not getting any. Not from any self-respecting person at least. The only thing you do get is my pity as I just shake my head at how undignified you’re being.

Ghost in the Shell

I’ve seen a lot of dislike and controversy over the new live action movie. I’m a fan of the series, so I can understand why people are a bit upset. However, I also am a firm believer that if some one is better for a job than some one else, then they should have it. I honestly think the movie will be good and I’m willing to give it a chance. Even Sam Yoshiba, a Kodansha director said, “Looking at her career so far, I think Scarlett Johansson is well cast. She has the cyberpunk feel. And we never imagined it would be a Japanese actress in the first place… This is a chance for a Japanese property to be seen around the world.” But everyone wants to shit on it because “she’s white.” Who the fuck cares? If you think the movie is gonna be bad for plot holes or bad acting or something, that’s fine. But if your argument has “she’s white” in it, you’re a moron. Scarlett is a great actress. The trailer looks pretty damn good. I hope it does well. And besides, if you want to complain about her being white. Then you should also complain that the Japanese live action adaption to Black Butler and the new Fullmetal Alchemist movies are bad because they are dominated by strictly Japanese casts, both series set in Europe. All I’m trying to say is, if you want to judge her and the movie as a whole because she is not Japanese, then don’t see it. I’m just honestly sick of the hypocrisy of this website. Come on, guys. Chill the Fuck out.

Here’s one thing that gets me:

You have a character who loves gentle things, who just wants to read and play Stevie Nicks. A woman who goes into battle shaking because even if she CAN fight, she doesn’t want to. Someone who’s trying so hard to comfort those around her and make them feel heard.

And yet…

Because she’s tall, funny and black, she’s regulated to being a device. To be sassy and strong because that’s all you want to see. Nevermind the mountain of evidence that the woman is the definition of a cinnamon roll. No, because she’s not small and white, she’s denied the ability to be seen as soft, awkward and terrified.

Okay, here’s the problem with the idea that oppressed groups can “alienate allies” by not being nice enough:

You shouldn’t be an ally because oppressed groups are nice to you. You should be an ally because you believe that they deserve basic human rights. Hearing “I hate men” shouldn’t make men stop being feminist. Hearing
“fuck white people” shouldn’t make white people stop opposing racism.

Your opposition to oppression should be moral, and immovable. Your belief that all humans should be treated with equal respect shouldn’t be conditional based on whether or not individual people are nice to you.

The more people hear things the more normal they seem

This is just how the brain WORKS

The more people repeat Trump’s platform the more it will seem like the way things have always been here, because brains are experience-based learners. It’ll be JUST LIKE how the no-fly lists etc now seem like the way things have always been.

white leftists keep saying that at some point it’ll be bad enough that everyone will revolt together. That’s not how it works. We will keep getting used to worse and worse “normal”s, and counterarguments will start sounding more and more out-there, unless we fight hard and constantly and actively to stop fascism being normalized.

We can’t wait politely for it to “get bad enough” holy shit it’s already well beyond “bad enough”. White people who are saying it’ll be ok, stop being so difficult about it? You’ve already caved to the new normal. See how easily so many of you are doing that? How much energy you’re putting into silencing more marginalized folks now, instead of trying to address your more violent bigots? If you call yourself a moderate or a liberal or anything other than a white nationalist, maybe *think* about how easily you’ve compromised yourself for convenience.

here’s what the dominators found in everyone’s heads:

thea: the entire marina and the diamonds discography

sara: places it is okay to put your tongue, places it is not okay to put your tongue, guilt, guilt, GUILT, places it is sometimes okay to put your tongue

diggle: siri how do you stop being friends with white people

ray: family recipes, kendra, kendra, Reasons Kendra Left You You Useless Monster, kendra’s boobs

oliver: sir this is just a pile of rocks

Straight cis white women need to realise that a. they are not going to face the worst things that will come out of trump’s presidency and b. 66% of white women voted trump so we should maybe stop pretending being a white woman makes you exempt from racism
