“People of color, Women, Muslims, LGBTQ+ or any oppressed group in America, we stand and fight together, because we are #StrongerTogether.”
(I’m so devastated by what is happening right now. I don’t know how else I could help or contribute but..)
Some characters from Rick Riordan’s book series that represent minorities:
Reyna Avila Ramirez-Arellano - Latina Frank Zhang - Chinese Canadian Hazel Levesque - African American Samirah Al Abbas - Arab American muslim Leo Valdez - Latino Alex Fierro - Transgender and Genderfluid Piper McLean - Native American/Cherokee Nico di Angelo and Will Solace - Gay
Don’t attack me for the ones I had left out.. If I had the time I could’ve added more characters…
wanna know who the most underrated Orange is the New Black character is? fuckin GLORIA MENDOZA aka SELENIS LEYVA
- she’s a protective mama to all the latinas and is endlessly supportive and helpful
- she looks out for her family above all else, survived abuse, tries to make her sons be their best selves and takes no shit
- she helps out people who need her help even if they’re not her family (the weepy white woman, poussey, etc.)
- she is unapologetic in her practice and respect for her and other latina cultures, and seamlessly expresses her culture into a prison setting (while remaining real as shit)
- in real life she is a huge advocate for the LGBTQ community, particularly trans people as she has a trans sister. like i would bet MONEY that selenis leyva and laverne cox helped to write their plotline in OITNB season 3 in order to bring to attention issues trans people face in prisons
LIKE I LOVE THIS WOMAN LOOK AT HER BEING ALL CUTE IN POLKA DOTS
Let’s please stop hating on people because of the things that make people who they are.
Don’t show cruelty to cis people.
Don’t show cruelty to bisexual people.
Don’t show cruelty to gay people.
Don’t show cruelty to asexual people.
Don’t show cruelty to bigender people.
Don’t show cruelty to gender fluid people.
Don’t show cruelty to genderqueer people.
Don’t show cruelty to intersex people.
Don’t show cruelty to pansexual people.
Don’t show cruelty to third gender people.
Don’t show cruelty to transgender people.
Don’t show cruelty to transsexual people.
Don’t show cruelty to transvestite people.
Don’t show cruelty to males.
Don’t show cruelty to females.
Do not show cruelty based on someone’s gender or sexuality no matter the circumstances. It is not right to tell cis people to get over hate if they’ve never experienced how it is to receive hate for how they identify themselves. The point is not to turn the tables, the point is to make everyone viewed as equals. Putting down any identification goes against this, no matter what. It’s about tolerance, even if you may not like what someone else says. So also
Don’t show cruelty to Caucasian people.
Don’t show cruelty to Hispanic/Latino people.
Don’t show cruelty to African Americans/African people.
Don’t show cruelty to Asian people.
Don’t show cruelty to people based on the color of their skin or where they descended from. That does not define who a person is and what they can do. Being Caucasian does not mean they automatically go against any other race and those people should not be shown hate for what other people with their skin color have done. This is not how equality works. Equality is when all people are treated equal regardless of what their race or sexuality is so stop reaching for equality but going after those who are currently viewed as “superior”. That is not the way to equality and neither is the continued oppression of the “non-superior” groups.
(I tried to include everyone in this, so I’m very sorry if I missed anyone and know that I mean this to include all people)
Being latino, I’ve always been fairly hairy. I used to shave obsessively (even my hands!). I’ve been letting my hair grow and it’s surprising how much there is. I’ve found it lessens my dysphoria and I think of it as a good thing now.
Despite the administrations protest–Thursday night I was crowned my school’s Prom King at senior prom. As a Latino Transgender man I felt like this stride meant everything to me after how long it took me to get to this point. I did this for Blake Brockington. I hope he is always remebered, and he motivated me to do this. He will always be a king, he inspired me. Every transgender kid’s life matters and is valid. I am so proud of my senior class, and hope to see so many transgender boys and girls get crowns. Let’s make crowns more common than coffins.
Why do need more gay, transgender, people of color and people who are not christian in the media? because representation matters!
I am sick of being blinded in this snowstorm of white people! and I am white! I’m sick of no one gender bending or gay people in T.V. and movies always being so stereotypically “falmmn’ gay” and only in “the fashion business.”
