Liminality Redux

Musings of queer dyke mama life in the Pacific North West.


On some real stuff though! Yes women in Delhi are saying what NEEDS to be said!

Anonymous said: So apparently it's ok for people of color to be proud of themselves but when whites do it it's racist? What the fuck kind of backward logic is going through your underdeveloped brain? You are not making things better. Fighting racism with racism is only making it worse. Get off the internet and go outside. Stupid cunt.

feministwomenofcolor:

And calling me a stupid cunt is helping anyone out how?

People of color are proud of themselves in face of white supremacy. It’s a means of RESISTANCE to the system that favors white bodies over people of color. It’s not that white people should hate themselves or be ashamed of being white, merely that they should recognize their white privilege and work every day they can to dismantle and challenge white supremacy not only in their surroundings, but in their own thinking as well. 

Also I have yet to see an example of white people celebrating themselves that wasn’t done with racist intentions.

lmfaoooooooooooooo Yes!

Lmao!
How can I be racist if I work with blacks
How can I be racist if one sold me slacks
I’m not racist I’m just like you. I’m best friends with a black or two.

i’m not racist, you see, it’s just a preference
i love eastern culture and its women’s deference
the west lost its way with no room for clemency
If I love Asian women, how’s that white supremacy?

i’m not a racist, i can’t be, you see
my great grandma’s grandma was part cherokee
plus one time i got called “cracker” to my face
don’t we all bleed red? i don’t even see race…

I’m not racist, blacks just need to stop complaining
Living in the past and white people blaming
I work hard, no handouts for every little fraction
If white privilege isn’t fair, then how is affirmative action?

I’m not racist man, I’m just right-wing
Plus reverse-racism is totally a thing
It’s not about power check the definition
Slavery wasn’t an evil thing, just asset acquisition.

How come I can’t say “nigga”, it just means brotha!
And ain’t I a brotha from anotha motha?
I didn’t use the ‘er’- so its a total difference.
You blacks give good white people such hindrance :(

'We can't handle spicy foods' ? Your jokes make me sad

See, if I joked and called you a “nigger”, you’ll be mad

You black people think we are always out here to ruin your day

Look, 'not all white people', …mmkay?

I can say “nigga” ‘cause of freedom of speech

And y’all always forget what MLK preached!

White privilege ain’t real ‘cause my life is hard

If you want to stop racists, don’t play the race card

Blacks can oppress. Shoot, they’ve oppressed me

I was the only white kid and the blacks were so mean

So I called one a nigger, but clicked anon first

yeah racism is real, but like… I’ve had it worst.

This will always be reblogged on my dash

These things actually permeate your brain and plant little seeds that people then carry around with them and influence how they behave. And it’s so important to analyze this, especially when you have an audience of MILLIONS.

such a needed campaign. i wish they’d have included native americans as well, though, as cultural appropriation of them in costumes is just as awfully common.

It’s that time of year again when these go around. And I will keep reblogging them. And if I see the joke ones I am likely to rip them apart with prejudice.

I will reblog this every year and unfollow anyone who posts joke fandom spinoffs of this very serious and important commentary.

Just when I thought I couldn’t love them more or they couldn’t get any cuter… they went and performed their song “Everything Is Awesome” from The Lego Movie. I died. Sara’s dancing is the cutest ever!

Recorded by me at the SAP Center in San Jose, CA on 9/23/14. (Tegan and Sara were opening for Katy Perry.)

11 ways to solve rape better than nail polish

The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send gallons of nail polish to colleges across the country.

UNHCR is reporting that number of Syrian refugees passed 3 million people, amid reports of horrifying conditions inside the country.

Almost half of all Syrians have been forced to leave home and flee for their lives. One in every eight has fled across the border, fully a million people more than a year ago. A further 6.5 million are displaced within Syria. Over half of those uprooted are children.

In the case of rape, pro lifers will say: “Well, why would you punish the child for the father’s crime?” They forget that they are instead punishing the pregnant person for being raped.
