more change than I know how to cope with right now
No it’s not racist. Racism isn’t getting your feelings hurt, racism is systematic. A tumblr post aint racist to white people. Stating facts isn’t racist. White people CAN experience discrimination and prejudice, not racism. White people are not systematically oppressed for the color of their skin. Someone tripping you in the hallways isn’t racism.
Get over yourself.
Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan
Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.
You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.
As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.
Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.
My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.
You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.
So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.
“oppression is not a competition”
thank you so much for this wording
ya hes cute…….but is he conscientious of the social inequalities and corruption in hierarchies of power that plague this world
the fucking worst is when people are like “you hate people for having a different opinion than you!!!!” like im not shitting on this guy because he thinks pistachio ice cream is gross im shitting on him because he actually believes that i and people like me dont deserve basic human rights and respect and safety
Taking naked pictures of yourself does not make you a bad person. People who share them without your permission are bad people.
"Do you remember the happiest moment of your life?"
"One day, I was sent home from my final exams because my mother had not been able to pay the registration fees. On the way home, a man came up to me and asked what was wrong. ‘Nothing,’ I told him. He asked me again. So I told him that I’d been sent home from school. He then gave me the money I needed to take my exams. I’d never seen him before, and I’ve never seen him again."
If you spread leaked nudes you’re just as bad as the shithead who leaked them. Don’t be so fucking disrespectful.
