TO EVERYONE WHO THINKS WE ARE LIVING IN A POSTRACIAL WORLD. FUCKING READ THIS. CITED FROM REAL PSYCHOLOGICAL RESEARCH.
To everyone who says they “don’t see color.” Open your fucking eyes and READ.
Microinvalidations are characterized by communications that exclude, negate, or nullify the psychological thoughts, feelings, or experiential reality of a person of color. When Asian Americans (born and raised in the United States) are complimented for speaking good English or are repeatedly asked where they were born, the effect is to negate their U.S. American heritage and to convey that they are perpetual foreigners. When Blacks are told that “I don’t see color” or “We are all human beings,” the effect is to negate their experiences as racial/cultural beings (Helms, 1992).
I need this.

“kill myself” was the most common answer when they contemplated the possibility of life as a girl
Yeah, tell me again how misogyny “isn’t real” and men and boys actually “love”, “like” and “respect the female sex”? This is how deep misogynistic propaganda runs in this world. Men and boys are so viscerally contemptuous of anything or anyone who/that is female or feminine, or perceived to be female or feminine, that they would rather commit suicide than to be associated with— or become a member of— the female sex. As Germaine Greer said, “women have no idea how much men hate them.”
they would rather die then be treated how they treat us
Attention, Sonic fans of Tumblr. I’d like to introduce you to your new fandom scarf to keep your blog warm this Winter.
If you’re unfamiliar with fandom scarves, they’re basically drapes that hang on the side of your blog to let everyone know what fandoms you’re in.
So, if you wanna try it out, this person can help you with the html to install it.
Okay, so I need an amigurumi squirrel crochet pattern that is quick and easy to make. I am going to need to make them in bulk (not to sell, but for a decoration project for a concert at my school…don’t ask. Seriously.), so it really must be small and quick.
Does anyone have one/know where I can find one?
I’m not going to sugar coat this: You’re an idiot.
I don’t think she was so much selfish as she was young, and it’s obvious as the episodes went on that she was learning and seeing things and developing. So, like, this confession is kind of… stupid. Yeah. Anyway.
She also said in one of the later episodes that when she had first been sent out into the field that she used to be scared all the time. I think her games and joking in the battles were her way of dealing with her fear and what was happening around her. I don’t think this was a stupid confession, just a different opinion.
It’s kind of…stupid to criticize another person’s opinion in such a rude way.
Come on, guys. Let’s not be like all the other fandoms. We’re better than this.
