who will think of the white people

anonymous asked:

Hey, do you think that whole weird 'smol bean' and 'pure' culture affects nonbinary people too? I'm not trying to derail the convo about trans men. I'm nonbinary and I'm really into pastel stuff and feminine/pretty things but I think a lot of the time cis people view me as a child for it and also sexualize it, and also assume I'm defenseless and ~submissive~

I feel like there’s multiple layers to the whole “uwu smol bean soft boy prince” thing and I’m kinda glad Tumblr’s starting to push back against it.

Because yeah you got the idea that anybody who’s non-binary is a white skinny Soft Prince. But you also have people treating binary trans men as this sort of transmasc non-binary ‘Men Lite’.

It even extends beyond trans issues even where you got wierdos putting flower crowns on characters like Space Nazi General Hux or, in the case of the true crime community, actual fucking serial killers. You got people using it to play into White Innocence by crying about how their just a soft fragile bean uwu when they’re called out for racism, trying to frame themselves as a victim.

And there’s so many more elements but the whole thing has become a mess.

anonymous asked:

do you think cishet aces are lgbt? this is for the unpopular opinion ask

send unpopular opinions!

strongly agree | agree | neutral | disagree | strongly disagree

Yes, and I’m sick of seeing seeing them used as weapons.

Anyone who thinks they’re not LGBTQ+ believes that aro/ace aren’t real orientations or that they’re “basically straight”, whether they wanna admit that to themselves are not.

“But you’re letting cishets in our safe spaces!!!!1”

This is the black-and-white thinking of tumblr that scares me. Cishets are automatically seen as demons and LGBTQ+ individuals as saints. Cishet aros/aces can be awful just as much as they can be good.

There are gays in our community that can be harmful.

That are bi people that can be harmful.

There are pans that can be harmful.

There are trans people that can be harmful.

We’re already LETTING bad people in our safe spaces, because it’s a space for all LGBTQ+ individuals, which – surprise, surprise – some LGBTQ+ people are horrible as the “cishets”.

It doesn’t mean we close our doors.

Gatekeeping has never done anyone any good.

alternative dreamcast: naomi tyler as rose tyler

i recently started thinking a lot about alternative dreamcasts, how a different ethnicity would affect a character’s history, and of course my mind went to rose tyler. i tried thinking about who i could see her, and through originally i was drawn to girls with fuller lips and cheeks, naomi scott caught my attention.

naomi is a gorgeous biracial actress (gurajati indian/white) who recently starred in the power rangers movie. i really liked the thought of a biracial rose tyler, whose indian dad died when she was really young, separating her from her culture. rose in the first episode clearly is not really connecting with the world around her, there are several shots of her looking bored and unhappy. i am not saying all biracial people are like that, but that being biracial heightens the feeling of not fitting in.

naomi is also young. i think that is something i really wanted to bring attention, because rose was nineteen when she entered the tardis. an older fancast (i looked at arden cho for a long while) might not have shown that really well. her youth, relative innocence and cheekiness are so important to her character. 

one thing that i think would have allowed her to transition into the parallel world a little better, would be contact with the other pete (pehal) who would introduce her to her culture, it would be a bonding experience,  and later on when tony comes around, rose gets to share it with him too.

You ever see messages to other Harry blogs that are anons like "I have big boobs, a fat ass, and a tiny waist, do you think Harry would like me?? :(" and then the blog is like "of course sweetheart, Harry loves everyone xx." and you're just like???? Who's sending these messages and why??

because its ridiculous how people rely on white men for compliments and reassurance for beauty, literally white men aint shit. you dont need a white man (or any man in general) telling you that youre beautiful, theyre ugly 90% of the time. harry’s receding hairline? why you need him to tell you youre beautiful, bitch youre most likely way more gorgeous than harry lmfao?

On The Adventure Zone Graphic Novel, Blue Taako, and Representation

 Yesterday, we revealed some pages for our graphic novel adaptation of the first Adventure Zone arc, and received some criticism of the direction we went with for Taako’s coloring. This artwork reveal came some months after the first reveal of some of our characters, for which we also received criticism of our three leads, all of whom were white in these initial designs. Us and the graphic novel team realized that, yes, that is extremely bad, went back to the drawing board, and had several long discussions about how to best rectify this situation, resulting in the artwork revealed yesterday.

More or less all of the criticism we’ve received centers on Taako, whose skin is a pale blue color in these designs. What we’ve heard most is disappointment that Taako is not realized in these pages as a person of color — or, to be more specific, a Latinx or explicitly Mexican character. There was concern we had failed to follow through on an opportunity to get better representation for Latinx listeners, instead opting to take a safe route, and make Taako a fantasy color without any kind of real-world connection. Much of the criticism also focuses on how that color (or, to be more specific, green skin) has anti-semitic connotations.

This conversation was happening in certain corners of our fandom long before the graphic novel art reveal took place yesterday. We’ve heard criticism from some folks over our policy of not having canonical visual representations of any of our characters — a policy that has resulted in a genuinely humbling ocean of fan art, but also some instances of in-fighting between members of the community who take umbrage with one another’s disparate interpretations of these characters. Another criticism of that policy is that it inherently does not foster good representation, and in fact represents a noncommittal way of handling racial representation on this show.

Here’s the truth of the matter: I think all of this comes from this underlying friction between where The Adventure Zone and us, its creators, were when we started doing the podcast, and where we, the show, and you, the community, are at now.

if your idea of a transgender man is a skinny, white 14 year old wearing a binder with a dyed undercut and a fucking flowercrown then you’re transphobic 

if you call trans men ‘soft boys’ ‘sweet babies’ or anything in the: ‘uwu my little boys’ ‘sweeties’ ‘kids’ ‘boys’ category then you really need to re-evaluate how you see transgender people. we aren’t all children and young teens. transgender adults exist, transgender elders exist, and besides that, don’t you think teens and kids deserve a little more respect?

trans men are a diverse group of people who dont have to conform to your weirdly specific idea of what a trans man is.

we aren’t all thin, prepubescent, white people with cutesy tumblr aesthetics.

grow up and stop with the condescending attitude towards transgender men

The Price We Pay

A thought occurred to me when I saw the BBC headline this morning of the Queen and Prince William visiting the area of the Grenfell tower fire. A fire that has left 17 people confirmed dead with 76 missing.

Buckingham Palace: Receives £370m for refurbishment.

Grenfell Tower: Doesn’t receive £300,000 for a sprinkler system.

As pointed out by numerous voices, one example being Aamer Anwar, these people died because they were poor. They continually raised awareness that fire alarms didn’t work and lifts repeatedly stopped.

People jumped.

People who were on the lower floors hurled whatever they could at windows to try and wake people up. They are at outside the incident now wondering whether they should have bothered as they think it would have been better if their neighbours had died from smoke inhalation in their sleep rather than in a panic to escape.

Aamer Anwar, human rights lawyer and current rector of Glasgow University, has said that a government inquiry is not good enough as it allows the government to set the parameters. He pointed out examples like the Hillsborough disaster and Bloody Sunday and how the government continually white washes these to make no one, especially the government, look at fault.

He wants an independent inquiry and a criminal investigation. This happened as a result of Tory austerity and cuts to both social housing and to the emergency services. That blood is on their hands.

When Boris Johnson was mayor of London he oversaw the closures of dozens of fire stations. We had Labour leader to Tony Blair, John McTernan, saying that ‘Only 2% of a fireman’s time is spent fighting fires.’ You cannot afford to cut emergency services to save a quick buck. Austerity does not work.

According to Akala, rapper and poet, rich people living nearby complained that the tower block was an eyesore and urged a refurbishment. This refurbishment results in 'pretty panels’ being placed on the outside, according to Aamer Anwar these panels assisted the fire.

https://www.google.co.uk/amp/www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/news/akala-grenfell-tower-fire-people-died-poor-london-rapper-block-flats-deaths-kensington-a7790906.html%3Famp

This is an absolute tragedy and it exposes the utter corruption at the heart of government and in Tory austerity policy. Like Anwar, we fucking hope it ends in criminal charges.

I don’t think people are actually tired of zombies and zombie stories. I think they’re just tired of seeing the same stories and characters over and over.

We’ve seen the law abiding white dude who’s slowly corrupted to an evil dictator. We’ve seen the small group who turn on each other over food and internal conflicts. We’ve seen the anti-social asshole who goes around killing zombies and committing crimes because he can.

There’re so many possible stories in the zombie apocalypse setting, but writers keep coming back to the same archetypes and formulas.

Laura Moon is not your “iconic badass female character” at all, and I’d appreciate it if white women stopped pretending otherwise. 

I do think it’s important and necessary to portray female characters who are complex, flawed, selfish, dangerous, and even a bit villainous. I also think it’s crucial to represent female characters with mental illnesses properly. So yes, in that sense, Laura is written quite well. Her depression is not aestheticized or glorified in the slightest, nor is it fetishized for a male viewing audience. She’s not a typical wife to a male protagonist because she is dangerous, she is apathetic, she is both a liar and casually blunt, she is self-aware, and she is cynical. These are not typical traits for the love interests of male characters. I get that. 

But Laura is also meant to be a character you dislike, or, at the very least, one that you should have quite a difficult time empathizing with. Not only did she cheat on her husband - she cheated on him with his best friend, a man who also happened to be her best friend’s husband. Her selfish desires caused Shadow to get imprisoned, and she committed adultery while he was in prison because she lied to both Shadow and to herself when she said she could wait for him. She chose temporary relief over honesty. She treated Shadow apathetically, selfishly, and patronizingly, and in fact even after her death she continues to condescend to Shadow and expects him to be at her beck and call. She was callous and flippant with a god (Mr. Jacquel, AKA Anubis) and expected him to listen to her whims. Mr. Jacquel is a serious but compassionate person - if even someone like him is irritated by her actions, then you know that Laura is not a nice or good person at all. 

You don’t need to justify her behavior. You need to accept that she’s a selfish and bad person. If you truly want complicated and different female characters, you cannot spend time trying to prettify or justify their awful behavior. 

Audrey, who justifiably hates Laura, still cares for her because Laura, albeit her actions, was her best friend. It’s difficult to fully hate someone when you found out about their death and their adultery at the same time. But she has no qualms about letting Laura know what she truly thinks about her. And she’s right - Laura did not love Shadow. Laura did not treat him properly. Laura was selfish. Laura is still selfish. Laura thinks of nothing but herself, and it doesn’t matter that she’s depressed; depression does not excuse treating your loved ones like toys to play with or manipulate. 

The only reason any of you are justifying Laura’s behavior is because Shadow is black. The protagonist of the show is a black man, and that’s exactly why you think the show is only good now that Laura is on it. I’ve seen people say “well the show passes the Bechdel test because of Laura now”. Setting aside the sad reality that the Bechdel Test was created by a lesbian to measure lesbian representation (so the show doesn’t actually pass the test since there are currently no lesbian characters on it), there are actually interesting and unique female characters already. These same fans who are touting Laura Moon as the height of “revolutionary” female representation ignore Bilquis. 

If Shadow was a white man, he’d definitely get more sympathy from white fans. Conversely, if Laura was a black woman, she’d get villainized by the same people who are currently defending her. Or alternatively, if Shadow had cheated on Laura, he would be deemed persona non grata by these “Laura defense squad” type fans. Hell, if Shadow was a white man, white fans would not be saying that the show was “boring” until Laura came along - they’d hype it up from the get go. 

This show is incredibly important because the main character is a black man who isn’t reduced to stereotypes at all, and it’s important because it has many characters of color who are written well and aren’t typecast into boring roles. Laura Moon is not what makes this show great. Sure, she’s one example of the great writing behind the show precisely because she’s such a challenging character to figure out and analyze. But even her actress, Emily Browning, acknowledges that she is supposed to be a character you have a hard time liking or empathizing with. Do not excuse her actions or lessen the degree of hurt she caused. 

The congressional shooting that happened yesterday in Alexandria was horrible. No one should disagree with that. 

But a year ago this month, nearly 50 people were killed at the Pulse night club in Orlando, Florida. 

Two years ago, nine people were killed at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. 

Five years ago, 20 children and six adults were killed during the Sandy Hook shooting. 

These are only the shootings I can think of off the top of my head. Just this year alone, and June hasn’t even ended yet, there have been 150+ shootings.

But it took an attack on old white men for the media to bring gun control back into the public mindset. It took this attack for Paul Ryan to proclaim, “An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.” 

It would’ve been nice if this anger from GOP politicians had been around for all the innocent people who have died from shootings. No one has died yet from yesterday’s shooting, and hopefully, Steve Scalise recovers soon. 

But could this please be the breaking point for the GOP? This country needs gun control. If our politicians had done something before now, perhaps they wouldn’t have become victims.

via a friend: A dispatch from a friend on the ground in Portland yesterday:

“I would guess 4,000 people showed up in downtown Portland today, to shut down an alt-rigt, racist, neo-nazi event. Even anti-fa was nonviolent, and really we acted the way you would expect Portlanders to act. Largely passive, glowingly Caucasian, and way too polite (in an self policing sort of way). This went on for hour upon hour until the police got bored and decided to pick a fight with two thousand of us that were standing in the park that anti-fa had rallied in. I was like, “are they really doing this? are they actually doing this?” Which are ridiculous questions for me to be asking myself because I was a LEGAL WORKER for almost a decade, and specifically worked on dealing with PROTESTS, and have had plenty of experience really critically analysing these riots afterwards. I damn well know THAT THEY DO THAT. That being said, it still spun me to see it happen AGAIN. Tear gass, flash bang granades, rubber bullets, dramatic orders and commands. WHY? WHY?

The police completely protected the group of Nazis, and decided to incite the locals to make us appear violent. And you should have seen us all. It couldn’t have been a nerdier group of people. Anyone who thinks antifa is made up of agro dudes, has it wrong. They are a very young, principled group. Our kids? They were giving out ice cream. For sure, many of them have never been in a fight in their lives. You can tell. And this is Portland, after all.

So PLEASE do not believe the local tv news that protestors rioted today. I wish we had, but we didn’t. The police got sick of waiting and attacked us. A very political move to paint a very specific story where the white racists, and perhaps the television viewers at home, are the real victims here…“

i’ve heard the police are claiming a brick was thrown and that’s why they HAD to start the violence.

I’ve heard from people on the front lines that someone threw tampons and one person threw a water bottle.
regardless, even if a brick HAD been thrown, that was one brick, 4,000 people, and cops covered in armour and helmets using gas, noise grenades, and batons against thousands of people who were unprepared for any of it.

and in the meantime the people in body armour with the guns chuckled and sang that basketball song.

i can’t get over how in season one it felt like all sun had was her dog? and her connection to the cluster primarily consisted of saving their asses. and suddenly she has her prison family, her teacher, even the fucking detective assigned to steal back her freedom, surrounding her with love and acceptance on all sides.

and from the holiday ep, the cluster converged, all for her. she’s not just Jean Claude Van Damme Korean Lady, the one who supplies physical labor for nothing but an occasional thank you. she’s precious to them. without a second thought, they save her from assassins, break her out of prison, put together a legit heist to end her quest for vengeance.

and all along they  tell her we’re here. we got your back. we love you and we’re not going anywhere.

it just makes me really emotional

The Performative Wokeness of Dear White People

“I plan to marry me a dark-skinned sister. Have the ashiest, blackest babies possible.” Says the character of Reggie (Marques Richardson) to his group of friends as they’re taking a stroll on the campus of Winchester University, the fictional university set in the world of Dear White People. Reggie’s proclamation came during a conversation about the character of Sam’s (Logan Browning) new white boyfriend.

The statement echoes a conversation that Sam has earlier in the series with her group of friends where she says that she prefers her men like she prefers her coffee “full-bodied with preferably Keyan origins.” Prompting Muffy (Caitlin Carver) to ask Sam, in Muffy’s words, “a dumb white girl question,” why it would be racist if Muffy was to only date white men, but not racist for Sam to only date black men. Sam goes onto explain that there are parts of her identity that white men will never understand in the ways a black man could. However, Sam does eventually start dating a white guy named Gabe (John Patrick Amedori), who only after being outed on his Instagram account, does she go public with.

Sam’s relationship with a white man becomes a point of contention for many of her closest friends, sparking an ongoing discussion in the series of whether a black person can really be pro-black, while also having a white significant other.

Reggie’s politics, however, are never challenged in the same ways that Sam’s are. His declaration of love for dark-skinned women, is dead upon arrival considering that the only other thing that he is known for outside of his pro-blackness, is his crush on Sam. A light-skinned biracial woman.

Based on the 2014 movie of the same name, Dear White People is a satire set at a PWI about college campus politics through the lens of black students. The show also explores the theme of identity. How often people assume identities or have identities projected onto them that contradicts who they really are. Identities such as being“woke.”

Used to describe a person who is socially and politically conscious, the word “woke” has surged in popularity within recent years due to social media and the rise of social movements such as Black Lives Matter. But what once was a way to describe someone’s political awareness, being, or staying woke, has seemingly dissolved more into a competition of who is more educated on race and other social issues.

Performative wokeness is examined within the world of Dear White People, with episode five featuring a scene where Reggie shows off an app he created called Woke or Not. The app shows photos of students at Winchester University and with a push of a button app users can determine whether a person is woke. Or not.

Even though Dear White People pokes fun at the absurdity and arrogance that comes from people who think they have the moral authority to decide who is or isn’t woke, the show itself falls into many of the same traps that it attempts to satirize.

In an episode centered around Gabe, he’s sitting at a table surrounded by Sam and other black women while they discuss white male privilege and how women of color are often passed over for opportunities that usually end up being given to mediocre white men. While he’s silently listening on, Gabe imagines himself banging his fist against the table as he looks directly into the camera and exclaims that sometimes people actually earn the things they get and that just because he’s a white man doesn’t make him an “asshole.”

“Asshole,” of course, seems just a tad bit reductive considering that being an “asshole” in this scenario is about benefiting from a society that prioritizes average white men over hard working black women. While the narrator says that only “a tiny part” of Gabe wishes he could make such a statement, it’s still concerning that Gabe, who is supposedly enlightened on issues of racism and sexism, is secretly harboring resentment against women of color for venting their frustrations about the institutions that systematically hold them back from opportunities

Is it possible that Gabe is being used as a conduit to discuss liberal racism? After all, episode five deals with how even “good” white people can be guilty of the same racism that they like to think they’re above. But this wasn’t Gabe’s first time making racially tone deaf statements without being taken to task. In the first episode, Gabe tells Sam that he wouldn’t let his friends make her feel like she didn’t belong in his “world,” after Gabe’s first uncomfortable meeting with Sam’s friends where he made a series of half-hearted attempts at trying to relate to the struggles of black students.  

 However, the most egregious occurrence of Dear White People’s lack of self awareness about their own performative wokeness comes with their handling of discussions surrounding colorism.  

The most improved upon element from Dear White People the movie is the colorism. In the movie, the character of Coco (Teyonah Parris,) a dark-skinned black woman, existed solely as a foil to Tessa Thompson’s version of Sam, a light-skinned biracial woman. With the movie being turned into a series, we see Coco, now played by Antoinette Robertson, develop into a fleshed out, fully realized character. But even with the series upgrading on the movie’s shortcomings, even going as far as calling Sam out on her light-skin privilege, the series began developing flaws of their own in regards to its colorism.

Joelle (Ashley Blaine Featherson) outside of being Sam’s best friend, also has feelings for Reggie, the guy who has feelings for Sam. This scenario is reminiscent to a flashback scene in episode four in which Coco longingly looks on as Troy, (Brandon Bell) a guy she has feelings for, flirt with Sam. Even though in that particular situation, the scene was a part of an episode that explores Coco’s relationship to colorism and how it affects her love life, the same motivation doesn’t appear to be behind the love triangle of Sam, Joelle, and Reggie.

The fact that the only light-skinned biracial woman of the show is constantly shown as the object of affection, while the two principle dark-skinned women of the show are depicted as coveting over color struck black men who constantly overlook them for said light-skinned biracial woman is disheartening to watch.

What makes this even more disheartening, is the fact that Joelle was walking right beside Reggie, struggling to contain her smile, as he declared that he was going to “marry him a dark-skinned sister,” only later to hook up with Sam. But Joelle, nor does anyone else, call him out about how his preference doesn’t align with who we actually see him dating.

Has Dear White People found itself stuck in the same tiny confines of identity that it sought out to expose through its characters? Can the contradictions that arise within the show merely be chalked up to poor writing? Or does it prove that inconsistency will inevitably happen when trying to voice the concerns of multiple people with varying opinions? A light skin woman can not speak to the struggles of colorism that a dark skin woman faces. A white man can’t relate to the problems a black man has. And one show cannot voice the opinions of all within a community.

Batman Black and White: Perpetual Mourning

Who Killed Pink Diamond?

Recently in the Trial it was heavily implied that Rose was not the one who shattered Pink Diamond. It’s a cop out, but that’s not important. The important thing is that now we have a mystery! Time to go over our 5 most likely suspects.

5. Rose Quartz:

Originally posted by saltblaster

Yes, I know I just said we found out it wasn’t her, but what if it was? What if the show was like, “LOL it was her all along!” That would be pretty dumb, but it’s not impossible. She does have the motivation, an eyewitness pins her at the scene of the crime, and all the gems are convinced she did it.  Still Rose is probably innocent. This might be ok because now Steven doesn’t have to be sad that his mom killed an evil dictator who was killing the Earth.

4. Blue Diamond:

Originally posted by sigilofmalice

They could go with Blue Diamond being the killer if they want to swerve us. They could have it where it’s actually the “nice” one that’s the killer. She would have something to gain from killing Pink Diamond, as it seems that some of Pink Diamond’s assets became her assets after Pink Diamond’s murder. The problem is that if they go with this twist, then her actions make absolutely no sense. It’s wouldn’t even be a case where she was trying to hide that she was the killer, it would just be nonsense.  If anything I think that she’s actually the next victim. Think about it, the Diamonds believe that Steven is still on Homeworld, thus Pink Diamond’s real killer could frame Rose for Blue Diamond’s murder as well. They might do that because Blue Diamond might be a bit too nosy for her own good.

3. White Diamond:

I’ve seen quite a few posts saying that they think White Diamond is the killer, and that Yellow Diamond knows, but is trying to protect her. The posters say that they hope that this is the case because Yellow Diamond being the killer is predictable, but here’s the thing. White Diamond being the killer would be a bit of a lame and slightly pointless swerve. “Surprise people! It turns out it’s not the evil dictator that’s the killer, it’s the other evil dictator that’s the killer”. It’s a pretty lateral move that probably won’t affect the plot any differently.

2. The Pearls: 

I imagine some of you might find this one absurd, but hear me out. The Pearls being the one who shattered Pink Diamond does make a lot more sense than one would think. Zircon suspected that it had to be one of the Diamonds because they would have access to Pink Diamond’s palanquin, but what she probably didn’t think about is that the Pearl’s would also have access. If they walked over to Pink Diamond’s palanquin she would probably let them in since she would assume that the other Diamond’s sent them to tell her something. Just look at the way that Yellow and Blue Pearl reacted when Zircon mentioned Pink Diamond’s Pearl not calling out. They know something. Maybe Pink Pearl didn’t cry out because she was a murderer. I say a murderer because one Pearl probably couldn’t kill a Diamond, but 3 or 4 of them fused might be able to. So yes, I’m possibly accusing Yellow Pearl, Blue Pearl, Pink Pearl, and White Pearl. Does this include CG’s Pearl, maybe it does. There have been some who suspected Pearl since Back to the Moon because of the way she reacted to hearing Pink Diamond’s shattering. If Pearl did it, then maybe Rose took credit to protect her, or maybe Pearl found a way to convince Rose that she did it. If that’s the case, maybe Yellow Pearl did the same to Yellow Diamond. Either that or Yellow Diamond reacted the way she did because she’s a bitch. Now this is probably the most interesting twist, but there might be some drawback. If they vilify the Pearls for doing this then we have another Bismuth situation where it seems like the show is saying that slaves rebelling against their master is wrong. If they have it where Pearl feels really bad about it, then we get a combination of “Killing an evil dictator is wrong” and more pity Pearl moments. It’s like the worst of SU’s unholy fusion. There are ways that they could make this work though, and this would definitely be the most interesting twist.

1. Yellow Diamond: 

Originally posted by yellowpeorl

This is definitely the most obvious one. She acted hella suspicious during the trial. Yes having her be the culprit would be predictable, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes it’s better to be a little predictable than it is to have a swerve just for the sake of it, or to have a swerve that messes up the plot.
