I CAN’T HANDLE THIS
This ended completely different from what I expected
I like this. Don’t try to win someone’s love with gifts and flattery, just try to relate. It’s beautiful.

A young black girl decided to not bleach her skin after seeing the success of Lupita Nyong’o.
Lupita Nyong’o was inspired to be an actress after seeing Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg in The Color Purple.
Whoopi Goldberg realized she could BE an actress after seeing Nichelle Nichols in Star Trek
- Being white doesn’t automatically make you a racist.
- Being a man doesn’t automatically make you a sexist.
- Being a heterosexual doesn’t automatically make you homophobic.
- Being cisgendered doesn’t automatically make you transphobic.
- Existing as a part of the majority does not automatically make you an oppressor to the minority.
Say it with me, kids:
When you grow up white in a racist culture, you are a racist.
When you grow up in a sexist culture, you are sexist.
When you grow up in a heterosexist culture, you are heterosexist.
When you grow up in a cissexist culture, you are cissexist.
When you grow up in a culture that indoctrinates you with these ideals, these ideals become inherent to you.
Even if you question these ideals (good for you!) many of them are implicit or subconscious (see Harvard studies on implicit racism as an example).
When you exist as a privileged group, you benefit from oppression.
Oppression does not work on a scale of “bigot or not,” and is actually much more complicated than that.
Oppression is not just simply about the attitudes you have but about living in a system which benefits you automatically for being white, male, heterosexual and/or cisgender.
Let’s reiterate: As a privileged group, you benefit automatically from oppression.
PS: Maybe before talking about oppression do some research into the fields which study oppression (like sociology).
There we have it.

I am now 100% convinced that Good Omens Crowley is behind the posts-reblogging-as-links default function…
A. Because it’s just the sort of tiny annoyance that balloons into frustrated misanthropy that he would appreciate.
B. Because that joke I made about the Good Omens movie keeps getting reblogged from Neil Gaiman’s blog as a link, which cuts off at “
The Good Omens movie is announced. Neil Gaiman publicly states his approval with every aspect of the movie,” and I keep reading the tags on the post and seeing comments like “I SAW THIS AND HOUGHT THIS WAS GOING TO BE AN ACTUAL ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE MOVIE NOOOOO”, and maybe I’m just evil but I’m getting more amusement out of it than I got out of the joke to begin with.
That actually makes a disturbing amount of sense.
someone mentioned april fools today, and it reminded me that last year a couple of radio DJs got taken off the air and almost faced felony charges because they told their audience that the local water supply was contaminated with “Dihydrogen Monoxide” and alot of people panicked
Dihydrogen - (two hydrogen)
Monoxide - (one oxygen)
some guys almost got arrested for telling people there was water in their taps.
step aside other fandoms
we’ve got evil snowmen
Ours is better.
How is that relevant to evil snowmen?
You”ll never know.
this post made my day
[whispers] and if u want to tag it for archival/saviour purposes you can avoid being an asshole by adding forward-slashes #likethis/////
Only on Tumblr would proper use of the tagging system (the second example shown) be frowned upon
nah. it’s called “tagging hate”. people track tags of fandoms they’re in, or other shit they’re interested in, because they like seeing info about it, fanart, theories, discussion, all that jazz. being a douche in a tag for no real reason is like… basically walking into a convention about the thing and angrily screaming about how much you hate it
tumblr’s different from most blogging sites in that a tag is more like a small community instead of just a category to organize things in. which can make organizing things hard, admittedly, but also makes it easy to connect with people who likes the same thing you do. case in point, i’ve managed to make a couple friends via the TPP tag community
apparently you can’t be employed by the CIA if you’ve ever illegally downloaded music
breaking news: in 20 years, the CIA will operate out of the president’s basement, staffed by four old men and six guinea pigs
