being a feminist is like trying to fix a giant hole in the wall and discovering that the entire wall is rotting and filled with termites and you have a lot more work to do than you thought you did
not all termites
can she just get an award or something
I reblog this whenever it pops up on my dash.
So many directions she could have gone with this joke…out of infinite possibilities…she picked the best possible direction.
Best video in the world
Honestly.. When PoC get to an age where they are able to deeply realize and internalize how intensely and directly racism affects them, as well as able to recognize the little racial microaggressions against them, it truly IS a traumatic experience. Its draining and depressing and painful and scarring. It can very easily make you lose the will to do anything or dream anything. And that is something that whites will never experience, thus never understand how deep this goes.
THIS is exactly why I get so heated about these boys. These girls who aren’t even old enough to understand the damage these boys can cause are just blindly following their every word. These boys are role models. They are celebrities, and they need to learn that they affect a lot of people. It doesn’t matter if they were “just kidding”. The words they are saying are still teaching pre - teen and early teenage girls that homophobic and racist tendencies are okay. The fact that this boy can say whatever he wants because he is “cuddly baby cam” is what’s sick, not the people calling him out for his ignorance and blatant disrespect for the role model status he has been given.
I keep seeing comments posted as “So many fathers are like this” and “Omg tons of people say this stop targeting him”. NO. First of all, just because other people are saying it, that doesn’t make it okay. Second of all, THEY. ARE. NOT. JUST. NORMAL. PEOPLE. They are celebrities. What they say doesn’t just affect one or two people. It affects millions. Their ignorance is ruining a generation and I will not fucking stand for it.
"Please stop selling shirts carelessly" wtf are they supposed to interview the people buying them like what does this dude want
you KNOW if he saw a dude wearing it he would not have said anything, he’d assume the guy knew the music, because this is not about music snobbery it’s about men thinking women are fucking idiots, and behaviour like this REINFORCES that belief because this guy will harass and belittle women, finding them to be “wrong” but he will leave men alone ASSUMING that they are “right” thereby providing himself with skewed inaccurate evidence to prove that women are idiots, completing the vicious cycle of misogyny that so many men perpetuate daily but are COMPLETELY FUCKING BLIND TO
literally one of the most annoying things ever. like blame the misfits and other bands for shamelessly selling their band logos/merch to major corp. and etc. and who gives a fuck? someone liked a shirt and it happened to have a band on it or maybe it has sentimental value to it. and apparently you’re entitled to grill them. and this usually happens solely to women.
