These are the names of the Republican Senators who voted to change the Senate rules to appease Trump and force through the confirmation of anti-choice ideologue Neil Gorsuch. The resistance will NEVER forget.
White are you so critical of only white women and not white men?
I felt like this questions was coming.
Why am I more critical toward white women? Because here on
tumblr, we’ve all collectively called out and agreed that white men are racist,
and in society the most racist and oppressive group. There is NO argument when
it comes to that and I agree, I am also happy that people, even white men and
women alike fully accept that.
But it’s differently for white women.
While I am happy that tumblr is basically the platform for
female positivity, there are extreme flaws in that movement.
Flaws that tend to excuse women for the terrible things they
do simply because they are women—but not all groups of women, specially white
women. Tumblr scrutinizes
and is always harsher toward women of color than they are white women, hating
on women of color for the same things they love or excuse white women for
Here on tumblr, it is not acknowledged or generally accepted
that white women can be racist and oppressive, while in my experiences white girls/women are the most racist group
here on tumblr and in fandom. Yet, no body knows this outside of the poc
community and when the topic of white women being racist or oppressive is
brought up, white girls get upset and try to dissuade the conversation with “all
women” or “let’s bring each other up, not tear each other down” bullshit. (Like
I cannot count how many exclusively woc posts that white women have derailed
and tried to erase a racial issue with “feminism for all”!!)
Tumblr does not scrutinize white women the way it should,
because they are women. Yet women of color here are usually brought down, or
ignored because of white women. White women are put on pedestals here on tumblr
as heads of social justice, but when a woman of color talks to them about
social justice issues or attempts to call them out on their racism, then the
white girl gets upset and her friends do to.
White women believe they are untouchable when it comes to
being racist/oppressive yet they execute some of the most racist tropes I’ve
ever seen in fandom and claim they are being revolutionary or progressive. White
women also fail to acknowledge or accept that men of color face prejudice and
oppression , and they as white women have more freedom and privilege and are
not nearly as oppressed as men of color—especially here in America.
Tumblr is filled with privileged, racist white girls who perpetrate
their white feminism and think they know equality but they do not. yet, tumblr
as a whole accepts the white woman as a sign of feminism, female empowerment
and idolizes her; tumblr accepts that white women can do no wrong because they are
girls and their feminism/social justice speak for us all.
And when a woman of color dares to speak out, the God help
So I will always be critical toward white women because as a
black woman, I have only been subjected to racism here on tumblr by privileged white
women/girls and I think tumblr needs to realize that while white men are the
ultimate oppressors, white woman are not far behind, not at all.
Also anyone can reblog this and if you see it I would encourage you to because this needs to be brought to light!
I don’t post much about my weight loss journey but Words can’t describe how proud I am of myself for losing 94 pounds in the last year and 3 months! Seeing the difference in pictures motivates me to keep going. I feel like a whole new person and it feels great to be so confident in myself and wear the things I want to wear without caring what anyone thinks. Never did I ever think posting my selfies through out the weight loss process would get me 20 thousand Instagram followers! But with your help I’ve learned to love my body and my journey ain’t over, I’m still going 😊💖
Why are so many people under the idea that Sailor Moon is progressive for women? I honesty think that feminism/female empowerment comes from rejecting the stereotypical girlish things, not standing beside it.
Feminism is about choice, whether it be liking stereotypical girlish things or rejecting them. Sailor Moon is empowering for many because it showed that one was not weak for liking “girly” things, that they need not be mutually exclusive.
A world without net neutrality is a world where internet service providers can censor our communications or create “fast” lanes for sites they would rather you visit. As a result, alternative and independent voices from women, communities of color, and LGBTQ+ folks could be relegated to the “slow” line.
On a hunt,
Y/N is surprised to find out in such circumstances, a kink that she has – as is
Dean. They try it out when they get back to the motel room.

“Come on Y/N this is where he’s going to be and it’s probably our only
chance to kill him.” Dean argued. “I have to go too.”
You snorted, “You get to wear clothes though, you don’t have to go in your
You had been on this case for the past two weeks trying to find the vampire
that was terrorising the city, so of course you wanted to kill the son of a
bitch. But the only problem was that he only showed his face once a fortnight
at a club downtown. The club looked like your average sort of club from the
outside but in reality it was invite only. Not only that but the invites were
for men who had girlfriends and partners that would come along only in their
underwear (or less) and then, “I don’t even want to think about what sort
of stuff happens in that club at night.”
