Eartha Kitt as Catwoman

before she was replaced by a white woman because batman was going to start going out with catwoman and the producers didn’t want a white man and a black woman flirting on television

A trend which Hollywood has seen fit to perpetuate in virtually every narrative in which a relationship between a white man and Black woman is still forced to be seen as uncomfortably taboo.

I’m real tired of seeing skinny white kids painted as THE AVERAGE QUEER. Like please show me a curvy Indian agender kid from Brooklyn, a hispanic lesbian and her black girlfriend. A trans demisexual dude from Korea. GIVE ME SOMETHING OTHER THAN LANKY PALE PEOPLE WITH COLORFUL HAIR PLEASE GOD.

I will never stop linking to this article: Black People Make Up Largest Share of LGBT Community

Let’s stop pretending otherwise, OK Media?

Deadpool Annual (2014) #2

I am literally just sitting here with my mouth hanging open.

Deadpool: 

1) is capable of human relationships, be they romantic, platonic, or anywhere in between. 

2) considers Spiderman his friend, even if Peter’s a little leery on the subject.

3) Would kill for his friends. Has killed for his friends.

4) Is awesome. 

Never forget that Deadpools defining character arc during his best run (when Joe Kelly was writing) was his desire to be a hero and good person despite a world that literally insisted he couldn’t be.

CULTURAL GENOCIDE:  Before and After photo of a young Cree boy, forced to attend a Canadian “Indian school.” (1910)

Despicable.

I want to show this to white people who say that cultural appropriation isn’t a big deal because you’re taking a part of someone’s culture that was insulted, attacked and taken away from them for years and years and now you want to wear it as some sort of costume or fashion trend. But your ancestors were the ones to forcefully take away and obliterate OUR cultures for centuries. We STILL aren’t allowed to freely embrace our cultures because white people love to insult us and make fun of us, but white people themselves love wearing it because they think their mayo asses are entitlted to everything. Nope fuck off.

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

It does not matter if a boundary makes sense to you. It does not matter if it seems inconsequential to you. Boundaries are the prerogative of the person who sets them. You do not know that person’s story, and they are not obligated to justify their boundaries to you. That touch that seems insignificant to you may be uncomfortably intimate for someone else. That interaction that is fine with others may trigger someone’s PTSD. You do not know more about someone than they know about themselves. Trust that they know what they are doing when they set a boundary with you, even if you do not understand why.

When someone sets a boundary with you they are saying “no.” No means no. Do not push people on their boundaries or ask for explanations that are not readily given. Doing these things indicates that you do not respect their boundaries. For many people, saying “no” once, setting a boundary, is difficult enough. Do not put them in a position where they must repeatedly do so. No means no the first time. Pushing them on it suggests a hope that you can wear them down, which is problematic at best and predatory at worst. No means no.

Our biases exist in us and in our society, but they aren’t CALLED “biases.” They’re called “The Way Things Are.”

We need to remember at every step of the way that nothing simply “IS” “a way.”

The minds of those in or who benefit FROM authority do everything they can—consciously or not—to create…

Here, let’s make the Invisible Architecture of Bias SUPER Visible:

1) Guy, suspected of drugs, has his house entered on a no-knock. Guy, fearing for his life, shoots one of the intruders, in accordance with Texas law. Intruder dies.

“Intruder” was a cop.

Drugs are FOUND.

Guy is out on…

This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.

This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.

One: this guy is a sexual predator
Two: bystander intervention may help but will not deal with the root cause of a culture that enables sexual predators
Three: the reason this guy is being a sexual predator in public is that he knows what he can get away with, what the limits are, and that cloaking it in a “Candid Camera” framework will get him a pass. Even from his victims.

Four: Rapist culture, where we excuse, allow, and defend behavior that is actually terrifying as normal or funny or cute, won’t go away because someone steps in for ONE PERSON. We have to dismantle it entirely. It’s on us, yes, but not on the individual level, on a cultural one.
