Gif added for the reaction I’d like to have to someone who said this stuff around me.
Gotta admire someone fitting SO MUCH WRONG in one status.
Another gem of his states “I refuse to apologize for something I have never done or tolerated so fuck off #YesAllWomen”
Let’s be clear y’all…if this is your reaction to something like this, I read it has, “Blah blah rape apologism blah blah totally insensitive blah blah derail.”
And I’d like to note, I’m REALLY glad the main submitted story didn’t come through in full because I’m always nervous when someone tells their friend’s story and doesn’t explicitly say, “Shared with her permission.” While we’re on this subject, if you submit something here and it starts with “this happened to my friend” etc and you don’t say “shared with her permission” I won’t publish it.

I'm currently studying in a field where I'm surrounded by people who deny their privilege and who almost always dismiss what I say when I try to call them out on it. It's very frustrating, but tumblrs like yours and people like you always give me the energy to keep going =)
That is super frustrating :( Thanks for the kind words!

spoopy-bat-trash said: I know this maybe isn't really considered racism in and of itself (well, I think it is because the person who posts this stuff is like "no more overseas trips, keep the African people away from us") but it really frustrates me that I have a fearmongering friend as far as Ebola goes. She'll take any excuse (including a satire article) to make a pass at just why Ebola-infected folks just shouldn't do things like the rest of us. She's never said anything about the flu, which is more dangerous. Idk.
I think, in general, there’s a ton of anti black racsim that plays into the Ebola frenzy.
This is a post from the eating disorder support group, Anti Thinspo Pro Recovery! which Facebook wrongfully deleted last night. As well as inspirational posts like this one, the group provided members with support, ED resources, tips for positive coping skills, somewhere to vent or share recovery successes, or just talk to people going through similar struggles.
There is a petition here encouraging Facebook to reinstate the support group with more information there.
PLEASE SHARE THIS POST AND SIGN THE PETITION. We need Facebook to take notice!
THIS IS WHAT FACEBOOK ACTUALLY REMOVES?!???
The Snoop Dogg/Iggy Azalea beef illuminates the intersectionality burdens that black feminists face when it comes to Hip Hop.
Either we’re forced to excuse Snoop’s misogynistic comments towards Iggy because we’re black, or we’re forced to defend Iggy because we’re women…when they’re both wrong.
And misogyny was never an issue in regards to any black female rappers, but when it’s a white female rapper, the world capes for her.
There’s levels to this.
So I was on Facebook and I saw this picture and looked at the comments (I know, why in the world would I do that) but wow.. I did not expect to see pages of positivity and people sticking up for this woman. (I have a lot more screen shots) Incase anyone is losing hope, just know that as hopeless as things may seem with all the misogyny and sexism we’re exposed to.. Things are gonna change. Slowly, but surely. Don’t give up everyone!
This is the first time I ever seen someone saying something positive on facebook
Her name is Makeupd0ll on YouTube and she is a BEAST!!! She’s talented .
Bolded for emphasis. THANK YOU! So many people have asked and I am not a youtuber in the slightest so I had no idea.
hulkip said: I was going to start a facebook sexism blog after I got into a facebook argument with a whole bunch of mysoginistic asswipes who went at me because I called someone ugly and a sexist pig. They proceeded to call me irrationally emotional, but not before calling me every name in the book and raging at me. I mean, irony, much? Great blog, btw.
Sorry that happened to you. Feel free to put them on blast here aaaaaanytime you’d like.

I’d really love for you to show me one single place I have stated ANY opinion on that case.
But while we’re at it, I am not the legal system, so if my default is to believe victims of abuse, that’s my prerogative and I don’t need your input.
