This is a personal blog where I post and reblog about me, fandoms, history and anything I find interesting.
Feel free to speak to me if you wish so. Let's be friends!
I was browsing Jung Seed’s new catalog when I found this:
It’s a bearded iris called “Dracula’s Kiss.”
And I don’t think I’ve ever wanted a flower more. Seriously, look at this thing. People go on and on about black roses, but this is the gothiest flower I’ve ever seen.
I hate how people think it’s insensitive to call someone out for just feeling sorry for themselves. Yeah, it’s okay to be sad. We all have been depressed over something at some point in our lives. But, Jesus Christ, self-pitying whenever it’s not that big a deal or when it’s something that’s your fucking fault is the most annoying thing ever. Okay, you’re sad or someone screwed you over or you fucked up……accept it and move forward. You’re not a goddamn martyr.
Saying that people of color can’t be racist, simply because they’re people of color, is like saying women can’t be the ones that deliver spousal abuse, simply because they’re women.
“I can’t be racist, I’m black, my people have been oppressed for hundreds of years by governments, individuals and entire continents,” = “she couldn’t have been the one to give him those wounds on his face, she’s a woman, her gender has been oppressed for hundreds of years by governments, individuals and entire continents,”
It also goes to say that saying white people can’t be victims of racial discrimination, simply because they’re white, is like saying men can’t be victims of abuse, simply because they’re men.
“No, white people can’t face discrimination. They’re white. They have privilege,” = “no, men can’t be abused, they’re men. They’re men. They have privilege.”
Racism can go all ways.
If a white boy is beaten because he goes to a school predominately ran by equally aged children of color, and he is beaten solely because he’s a white boy, that is racism.
If a person or if people of color forbid their child from dating a white person, simply because they’re white, it’s racism.
if a person or if people of color beat a white person simply for being white, it’s racism.
Racism against white people isn’t as often as racism against people of color, I realize, but it does happen. Even a little.
White people have, as a group, fucked things over for a very long time, and the behaviors of white people, as a group, are not to be ignored, I realize.
I am in no way excusing racism against people of color.
I am trying to make a point that racism goes all ways.
The color of your skin does not exempt you from racism.
If you show hatred toward and shun people, black, asian, middle eastern, native American, european, australian, canadian, you are exhibiting racism.
And for people of color showing racism, no matter who towards, you are no better than the racist people you’re fighting against.
I don’t get why everyone seems to be under the impression that feminists hate men.
That’s not true at all! We Love men!
…Well, not ALL men.
I told myself I’d reblog this when I got home if it was still funny.
get out your VCR’s it’s time to watch The Prince of Egypt. or you can watch it here.
please don’t watch exodus: gods and kings because it’s icky and racist. you deserve better. you deserve the prince of egypt.
May I also add that The Prince of Egypt’s accuracy has been approved by not only Christianity, but by Judaism and Islam as well! So it’s actually the most accurately told version out there!
true friendship is feeling comfortable talking about your deranged and potentially illegal fetishes
i’m like an npc i won’t do anything unless you interact with me
I know Free! might be confusing to the uninitiated, so I made a helpful table describing the characters:
