vend-etta said: Why do black people straighten their hair if non-black people can't get corn row/ box braid/ whatever you consider a "black" hairstyle

why do white people always try to make this non-point false equivalence when they know these are two completely different realities that don’t compare on any plane whatsoever

white people not only make black people hate their hair at an individual emotional level but literally at a systemic level in which black people are and have been for the last century unable to get jobs, attend colleges, enlist in the armed forces, etc. because of the treatment of their natural hair. there literally is nothing white people have to compare…

white people are not getting box braids because they feel pressured to, or out of fear that they won’t have access to a job or anything, but instead because they know it’s an “edgy black people thing” that they’re doing to be counter culture and subversive. there is literally no pressure on earth for anyone INCLUDING BLACK PEOPLE to worship or utilize Black hairstyles or Black hair in its natural state and you fucking know it. It’s literally the complete opposite for white hair. grow up

white people are not gelling down baby hairs for social mobility or financial security or comfort or assimilation.

Read the ads

"MEN WHO GO PLACES" "WAS IT HER RESUME OR HER RELAXER?" white people don’t have ads telling them "you will not be successful in life unless you have cornrows and box braids with gelled down baby hairs" because that isn’t the case. address this in the context of reality, maybe???

All of this. ALL OF THIS. READ THIS ^^^^^^

White people didn’t invent straight hair either. There are Black people with straight hair. That’s not a “White style”.

The Boxtrolls is transmisogynist →

So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.

I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very…

This is… Upsetting. I’m upset. When this was explained to me without reading the whole thing, I thought ‘Oh gosh nah this doesn’t sound too bad I’m sure I can manage it’ and then I read it and I am so fucking distressed.

I was really looking forward to this movie. Like, really looking forward to it. I might still see it, when I can get it from Netflix, but this makes me so fucking sad I want to fucking cry. Like. No. I want to see one fucking movie that doesn’t make me feel like a fucking freak for shits and giggles. Do you understand how hard that is? I literally am constantly afraid that something I watch will make a trans joke. I am constantly afraid that someone will say a slur just because it’s so damn funny.

Guess what? I was watching the Shrek musical a long while back with my primary, and we were generally giggling at how shitty it was. Then, halfway through I think the second song, the Wolf says the words ‘hot t****y mess’. All the giggling stopped. That, too, is based on a children’s film. 

What the fuck is wrong with the world? I want to fucking die the more I see this shit because goddammit it’s really clear that I’m not fucking welcome in the world of these cisgendered fucks.

I’m sorry for all of this, I’m aware it’s a big long rant and not quite related to the original post, but I’m so fucking tired of it and I’m just… I’m exhausted. Being in this fucking culture constantly guarding myself for the next time something or someone I like is going to remind me how much of a fucking abomination I am. 

I hate the society that makes me feel this way. I hate everyone who defends it.Do you want to know why? It’s because you make me hate myself.

Thank you and sorry to anyone who bothered to read this mess of a rant. I’m just so angry and so sad and so hurt and I am crying and I want this fucking bullshit to never come back again.

hey sooooo remember how the police in ferguson were going to start wearing body cameras

the police officers’ union is bringing out every last excuse to keep it from actually happening

actual quote from the article: “This gotcha discipline that we have with the dash board cameras is what we’d be afraid of,” Roorda said.

"gotcha discipline"

basically “any tangible way of holding us accountable for abusing our power is what we’d be afraid of”

My father recently lost his job, we lost our house and now on top of this he has been diagnosed with cancer of the lymph nodes. 

He is a professional machinist and has been working as one for over 30 years, only to then have his work stolen from him by his own mother and sister.  We’ve been scraping by since then and now that he lost his job we have absolutely nothing to live off of.

He is such a strong person and until yesterday I have never once seen him cry.  We’re absolutely devastated - he has cancer and we have no way to help him.  

He has always refused to take money from other people and he has spent his life helping people in need, and now we are the ones who need help.

My mother’s best friend has made a gofundme to try and help us pay our bills (we currently have no income whatsoever) and get him the treatment he so desperately needs.  

If you can’t donate then (please, please, please) signal boost this.  I’ll also share with him any supportive asks I receive regarding this..

I love my father so much and I am so afraid to lose him right now.

GOFUNDME

Wow this is horrible :< signal boost this up!

I SHOULD POINT OUT THE OP HAS A PAYPAL DONATION BUTTON ON THEIR TUMBLR PAGE! So if you don’t wanna do a credit/debit card for GOFUNDME, you can go to their tumblr page and donate via paypal!

being a cishet looks boring why do people do that

Idk maybe bc sexuality/gender isnt based on how cool or interesting an individual wants to look

yeah but why be boring when u can be awesome and not cishet

yeah but why treat lgbt+ identities like some trendy fashion accessory that ppl can just slap on to look cool when u could not act like a complete idiot

Anonymously tell me your feelings for me.

It doesn’t have to be romantic (though if you did feel that way, it’d be perfectly fine). Just how you feel in general. I get curious of people’s impressions of me.
