world topics

rant:

so i’m white. and i work my hardest to make my feminism and human rights activism as intersectional as i possibly can. because i know that as a white, jewish girl i am privileged. and i have some questions, because to be honest i am so confused by the messages i am getting from poc.

i am told that i cannot participate in blm marches or even help with the cause, because i am white.

but on the other hand i am shunned if i don’t show up to a blm march and called racist, even though it was expressed to me by the poc of social media that i am not allowed.

and then with the women’s march, i made my signs doubled sided.

one side with a uterus that says “grow a pair”

and on the other side it said “for all women: woc, trans, non-binary, jewish, muslim, gay, bi, fat, thin, etc.”

and i’ve seen a plethora of posts all over about white women marching and how we’re all ugly whites and how we are all ignorant.

FUCKING STOP. like there’s no need to be mean. DON’T BE MEAN TO POC, DON’T BE MEAN TO WHITE PEOPLE, DON’T BE MEAN. just fucking stop !! it’s so fucking conflicting.

like i’m going to college next year to study gender/women/sexuality studies !! don’t act like i’m stupid and get your shit together because i’m sick of being ridiculed for attending and not attending marches or being involved in a human’s rights group.

gosh. everyone just be nice to people !! if they’re on YOUR side don’t be a dick to them !!!!! like you’re taking your OWN side down.

@ my fellow white people

hello i am white ! and i make mistakes so be OPEN to the idea that we’re not right when it comes to certain world topics !!!

if you’re a POC pls call us tf out ( obviously kindly ) because not everyone is as educated on a topic and can make mistakes !!

but i know that i am open to constructive criticism and to be taught new concepts and ideas !! so please send me an ask and be nice !!!!

We’re sick of this shit.

youtube

100% truth.

Heed this or see this potentially repeated in Austria this winter, France and the Netherlands in 2017, and so on and on and on.

And no more #hashtags, please.

lgbt+ isn’t better than straight, poc isn’t better than white, jewish/muslim/anything else isn’t better than christian, trans isn’t better than cis, female isn’t better than male.

crazy concept to consider: no one demographic or group is inherently better than anyone else. we are all people and constantly seeing people saying boys are stupid or straight people are disgusting makes me kind of want to throw up.

can’t we please all drop it and just accept that no superiority complex is gonna fix things? and yeah, i might sound like some entitled brat right now (even though I am not straight, not christian, and not male), and i’m not saying you shouldn’t be proud of your race or gender or sexuality or what have you.

just don’t make it out to be better. better is what got us here in the first place. no one is better than anyone else. we’re all people. it’s that easy.

My boyfriend literally said this to me out of nowhere “you know what makes me mad? That men can be proud and enjoy a woman as they want and sexualise her in the way they want, but when it comes to periods they are horrified and leave her behind making her feel impure and dirty while thats the literal cause of everybody’s life, and yet men feel proud of sticking their glue everywhere even when the real honour is carrying a freaking baby inside them and in that time of the month all they need is comprehension and love and cuddles” i think i just found my husband thank you bye

There are a few things to know about Serbia.

Aside from the fact we’re nowhere near Russia. 

Pisano je na engleskom, jer je namenjeno onima koji ne poznaju ove krajeve. Složićete se da su to većinom stranci. :)

Serbia is in the heart of the Balkan peninsula, and is bordering Hungary, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Croatia. We are here, in orange. And Russia is way to the right. Miles and miles and miles away.  So we are in fact in Europe. 

The population is between 7 and 8 million, 2 of which are settled in the country’s capital of Belgrade. The city is a fusion of history, culture and many new trends. Belgrade is definitely tourist-friendly, so you can be admiring ancient sights, and then live it up in some of the hottest clubs out there. 

That being said, there’s no excuse for you to be pulling off crap in my country, that you wouldn’t even think of doing in your own. 

Running around, screaming in the middle of the street, drunk/high off your ass is not cool. Anywhere. Just like thinking that every girl will want you cause you’re not from around. Or starting a bar fight cause “it might be fun”. Tourists from all over the world are more than welcome, just please behave like the civilised people you’re supposed to be. 

Also, don’t worry, cause the war has been over for some 20 years.

Aside from our capital city, other big cities include Niš. Novi Sad and Kragujevac. But there are plenty of more rural sights for you to spend your time in, if you’re not a fan of big crowds and just want to rest. The mountaintops of Zlatibor, Kopaonik, Tara and many more are sure to offer gorgeous sights, all year round and great conditions for winter sports.

We’re a land bound country, but beautiful lakes and rivers will give you more amazing views and plenty of fun in the sun. 

The country’s currency is the Serbian Dinar (RSD). The exchange rate is around 120 dinars per 1 euro. Our time zone is CET. The prices of transportation will vary, depending on the city. 

But as in any other surroundings, beware of pickpockets, especially in public transportation. Lose the backpack. By that, I mean don’t use it. Aside from looking a whole lot more put together, it’ll be safer for your things. Carry a normal bag, with plenty of pockets, all zipped up. And make sure you distribute your cash in different places, just in case. Don’t carry around your passport, just an ID. Take a pic of your passport with your phone, just in case. You’ll thank me later.

At some point of your stay, people here will teach you how to cuss. :D

We take our sports very seriously, especially football (soccer) and basketball. The teams rivalries are a thing of legends, and you can encounter something like this, on a good day. 

You’ll be safe, just keep a low profile till you get a sense of your surroundings, and for the love of everything that’s normal, don’t walk around with a camera hanging from your neck.  There will be very slow traffic after a game, so walking for a couple of blocks won’t hurt. 

Talking about politics, religion, the EU and its legislations, etc. are sure to start up a conversation. Just make sure you’re willing to withstand it being a very, very long one, with tons of different opinions.

We’re very loud.  That doesn’t makes us hostile, it’s just that most people’s voice here doesn’t exactly talk quietly. That’s just how we are. 

The food is awesome, but I’m sure you’ve already heard that somewhere. 

Family matters, so we have different names for cousins, depending on the side of the family (they’re all somehow our brothers and sisters, just not actual siblings), and aunts and uncles as well. 

We’re Orthodox Christians, so our Christmas is on Jan 7th and is celebrated for three days. Easter is one to two weeks after the Catholic one, and every family has a patron saint, whose day is celebrated with going to church and other religious traditions, and a fantastic meal. This day is known as a Slava.

Finally, this is our flag. We all love it very much, and whatever chance for someone to show it off… Believe me, they’ll use it. 

Hopefully, this post cleared the air. And so… Welcome to Serbia!

Lakshmi Menon from Bangalore [x]:

Menon’s career had come up against an invisible barrier – and it’s one that “dark-skinned” Indians face every day.

“Back home very few people wanted to hire me. It became clear to me that my skin colour was not in demand,” recalls Menon who has the deep brown shade of a typical Bangalorean.

“I didn’t have much of a career apart from the odd editorial or campaign and the fact is that fairer-skinned models have found more success in India,” she says.

The prejudice Menon faced is nothing new in the subcontinent. The misconception that darker skinned Indians are somehow inferior and less desirable than their fairer counterparts has existed for centuries.

@surfacage is one of my favorite artists but every time I see their blog, they have some ask that nitpicks at what they wanna do. So I decided they should have some cheerleaders to keep them motivated. Itachi and Shisui cheerleaders to be exact. :3c I dunno if they’ll ever actually see this but this was fun to draw anyway ^w^ i know they’re probably doing just fine but I know being nitpicked can wear anyone down. Keep doing what you wanna do, draw what you wanna draw, and explore whatever you wanna explore.

🌺 💐 🍡 🍂

Gentle Asks

🌸- What’s your favorite color?

green, orange, and peachy colors

💐- Are you in love?

nope, never been

🍡- Name 3 things you love about yourself

i am smart;

i have learned to be there for myself, whenever i need someone to pick me up, just motivate myself, pick up my self esteem and tell myself to stop feeling sorry for myself and go get shit done;

i have grown to be a lot more confident in the past year and i love it

🍂- List simple things you can do to make yourself happy everyday

oh that’s good, there’s so many!! listen to your favourite songs and sing along, even dance, eat fresh but also tasty food, i feel a lot happier after eating fruits and veggies. cook !! cooking can be a lot of fun. talk to yourself, and say nice things!! when you’re feeling low, be the one to pick yourself up. talk to people you enjoy talking to/miss!! call your mom, go out with your friends, just spend time with people you enjoy communicating with. if there are none of those enjoy your own company! go for a walk somewhere where theres lots of flowers and trees and animals like a park or something. buy youself ice cream! listen to music/write/draw/ just relax honestly do whatever you feel like. also wrap yourself in a blanket and get some tea/ hot cocoa/ coffee and enjoy some indoors time. read a book/ watch a movie. and if you dont have time to realx, make your work fun. for example when im stuying i make my notes all colourful and it makes it a little easier. and sometimes you dont feel like doing anything and then all you need to do is say ‘fuck it’, drop everything and go nap. sometimes thats the best decision even if it might seem like the worst one. it will probably not affect your future in any ways so, go take that nap

I have to keep reminding myself that this 7th grade class I’m teaching is not a college-level theology class. I’m getting into Latin American Liberation Theology and its use of the Exodus narrative, and now I’m researching interpretations of the Exodus narrative in other faith traditions, and I’m also thinking about sacramentality and an Incarnational basis for tending to people’s physical needs and…Hanna dude calm down they’re like 12.
