There’s my scarification a day after it was done. :) I’ll post pictures when it is healed.

Scarification by Mister Chris Saint.
I find the arguments about Rami Malek being “white passing” and somehow benefitting from white privilege to be like so…gross? Like, aside from the fact that it entirely erases the experiences of biracial and light skinned PoC and the unique struggles they face DUE to being neither white enough OR black/brown enough but it also is like. Self defeating? “Mr. Robot is racist because it doesn’t address Elliot’s ethnicity and Rami Malek is too light skinned he might as well be white he’s just like every other white guy” except here we all are. Super obsessed with his race and skin colour. White actors don’t get this shit. Rami Malek is kicking wholesale ass in his performance and so much of the conversation around his work is tied up in his race and ethnicity.
That’s not to say it’s NOT important to have these conversations because obviously it is. Yes, I want Elliot to be biracial. Rami Malek and Sam Esmail are both Egyptian and it’s fucking awesome to see an Arab lead on TV and an Arab show runner creating something so fucking awesome. And there are lots of important conversations happening around this issue and that’s awesome. I just think it’s kind of gross to completely ignore - or even more, violently decry - the struggles of a PoC because they aren’t PoC enough for you while inadvertently participating in one of the struggles and microaggressions many biracial and light skinned PoC discuss.
I don’t know. Maybe I’m an idiot and should just shut up.
Could my dreams be finally coming true??? Is this a hint of the Zombie Apocalypse i’ve been waiting for my whole life??? The Center of Disease Control issued instruction if a zombie outbreak were ever to concur. Shit just got real.
