AND ANOTHER THING….at a certain point, seeing a Woman of Color and being like “I want her to punch me in the mouth and push me off a cliff” kind of ‘compliments’ on her appearance gets SUPER CREEPY and PERFORMATIVE. Speaking specifically about Black Women (because *I am one) it lets me know that you project a certain kind of aggression into us and want to make it clear that you’re not like ~other people~ who find us unattractive and unworthy, you’re one of the ~good people~ who just neeeeed to make it abundantly clear that you’re just SO IN AWE AND ATTRACTED TO US that you say really weird violent things.
And I’m not talking about you saying it once or twice or the exaggerated humor we’ve developed as a consequence of being here on Tumblr. If you look at a WoC and CONSTANTLY have stuff like that to say….you’re a creep.
*gender presentation wise not gender identity
