Because you may have Native blood, but do you have the heart to pump it?
If a person of colour tells you that what you’re wearing is offensive then don’t wear it.
Disclaimer: This comic only applies to those [“you” meaning those who wear headdresses where it does not apply to them or their culture, hense cultural appropriation] or have in some way done offense in the term of cultural appropriation and this post was created specifically for said people in order to perhaps gain a better understanding of why cultural appropriation is offensive to many Native Americans [and to whom it applies within any person of colour] and strictly for educational purposes. This post does not mean to offend those who have done some sort of act of unintentional offense to Native Americans in the past by means of cultural appropriation and presently understand the offense that was made and regret it.
• a transphobic woman is not a feminist
• a racist woman is not a feminist
• a homophobic woman is not a feminist
• exclusionary feminism is not feminism
If you’re not upset about Katniss, Tonto, or Kahn being played by white people, but you are upset about Annie being played by a black girl, you’re probably racist.
And by probably I mean definitely.
happy international women’s day! xo
I’m sorry, but I disagree with this statement. Women cannot do absolutely everything on their own. We need men in order to reproduce for example. Sexism against men does exist despite what most people think, and this is a perfect example. So tell me, how would you feel if you saw a post that said “Men are Everything”?
Sexism against men doesn’t exist because men are not oppressed.
Nice cissexism there. Men are not the only ones with penises. There are plenty of queer relationships capable of reproduction.
Stop policing marginalized groups because they’re trying to highlight their own importance for once.
Calm your shit.
Oh my god, really? :/ Just gonna hijack this awesome gif with your backwards opinion that men should have a men’s day/men are everything post? EVERY FUCKING DAY IS A MAN’S DAY. Congrats, you’ve just won the title of “Brainwashed by the Patriarchy”. Collect your prize by enduring debilitating sexism, skyrocketing rape rates, lower income, etc. Have a nice International WOMEN’S Day.
hi!!! it’s mish here. wow oops I made a typo. thanks for correcting me uwu I’ll fix it once I’m at a laptop.
please link me to wherever I said listing my privileges makes me more worldly because I never said nor implied that.
I said the “however” part to let whomever reads my about me that if they are experiencing the same thing they can talk to me, and to also let others know that I do have my own issues. I said “various other things” because some of my mental disorders complete and total strangers do not need to know about. if you really wanna know, message me off anon.
I’m really bad at writing about myself and just wanted to get my point across, so there’s also that.
flippant. nice use of a thesaurus.
I don’t think you’re in the right to say what I have and haven’t experienced.
I really don’t care where you live nor do I see the relevance.
I never said nor implied life was a competition for inadequacies.
If you have such a problem with me talk to me off anon and I’ll gladly talk!
but if you choose to stay anon, fuck right off and don’t you dare try and tell me what I have and haven’t been though you insufferable excuse for a human
- don’t ever feel bad for asking me to tag a trigger
- i do not care what the trigger is
- i will tag it for you
- you have legitimate reasons to be triggered by it
- and i am not one to question those reasons
- so just send me an ask
- anonymous if you’re scared
- and i will tag it all the time in future
- your wellbeing is worth twenty extra seconds of my time at least
I lost my mothers tongue
mãe me perdoa
I listen to her speak rapidly. words falling from her mouth, boca, like water.
Slang thrown, laughter, her melodic drawl smooth and intentional with each syllable.
eu te amo
I mimic her. curly my tongue around each letter, let it drip from my lips, lábios, like a child learning to speak.
quão bonita, minha menina negra
I try to copy her confidence in a language I can only understand brokenly. a culture I am nostalgic for but never knew enough about.
você fala português? Que vergonha! por que não?
how do I answer a question I cannot find the words to speak.
Something burns, fogo, inside me.
to find the half stolen by shame, vegonha, we never deserved to feel for raising daughters in languages, in cultures, that belonged to us too.
I envy my sisters who can speak their tongue. inveja
minha querida, I just want to go home too.
international womens day today
dont forget to include trans women, disabled women, women of colour, non-binary people who partly identify as women, queer women, all women.all of them. i don’t want to see any derailed posts today about shit like “international mens day” it doesnt fly like that
or to appear ‘well-rounded’ or ‘spiritual’ or ‘authentic’ or ‘enlightened’ or ‘hip’ or ‘radical’ (via theanimalnamesofplants)
This is for those who believe in the teachings in the Bible, if you don’t that’s fine! And my approval wasn’t even needed to say its fine, just letting y’all know I’m not ignorant (:
But I’m just going to say this once, and only once. To set this record straight: JESUS WAS AND NEVER HAS BEEN WHITE. EVER, ever ever ever. He is not a white man, I don’t think I can stress this enough. Remember the Bible describes Jesus as ordinary looking. Like a Jewish man of that time period, keep in mind the original Jews were brown skinned. Why were they brown skinned? Probably because of their geographic location, which SURPRISE SURPRISE! Wasn’t in any European country. Also, there are a lot of instances where the bible gives hints at his appearance, which signify a Jewish man of that time. The “White” Jesus was created by Europeans to entice people into jointing Christianity. No image of Jesus we see today is even close to being correct. These are all made up hierarchies that European church system thought up.
Don’t let these images them brainwash you. Remember “white Jesus” told the Europeans killing and enslaving races was okay. The REAL AND TRUE SAVIOR LORD JESUS CHRIST stated all men and women are created equal no matter their background, social status, ethnicity, or wealth. He sees us all the same and none the more superior.
With that being said, Happy 57th anniversary Ghana!
She was so cute back then I don’t understand why she got work done
Kim has actually spoke on it. its stemmed from self hate and the black men who have been in her life. she said something along the lines of herself (who she is) not being enough for them, she internalized over the years as many young black women do and thats she started with the surgeries. our skin is too dark, we arent light enough. our noses are too wide, our hair is not long enough, straight enough or we dont have that right curl pattern. its a lot to deal with.
Think about the fact that she was in love with Biggie, and he married Faith, while he was still having sex with Kim.
Are we going to dismiss the constant abuse she had experienced?
Her father was very strict, an ex military sergeant, who was so distant towards Kim & her brother she didn’t see him as a father, she experience him hitting her, her mother. She once stabbed him with scissors as he repeatedly was hitting her mother.
Biggie smalls was nothing better, he was very controlling and abusive. Kim loved him to death, she wore those big glasses because he gave her multiple black eyes & at one point choked her then put a gun to her head. He constantly made fun of Kim’s nose , He was so possessive and controlling her forced Kim to get an abortion when she was pregnant with his child.
Damion ‘world’ hardy was the worst. He was labelled ‘bipolar’ and possessive. Damion cheated on Kim multiple times throughout there relationship with lighter women and ‘exotic’ women. He’s mentally unstable, and is currently serving life in prison due to 6 MURDER charges. Damion was so unstable he had reportedly beaten kim over a game of checkers. He broke Kim’s nose TWO Times, second time was when she was still healing from the first. internally bruised her face causing mass blood clots, he also caused clots on her back and head.
People just jump to conclusions, there’s a reasoning for her change, that comes from a deep and dark place.
I hate that, when people she ‘why did she do this to herself’ , ‘she should of stopped, now she fucked up her face.’ we all know kim has had surgery, she is NOT hiding it or denying it. From being mocked and made fun of by hector extravaganza about her breasts to fellow female rappers, media and people in general How does that make you better than any of the ones who abused her? It still fucking hurts. She’s a human being.
Above from fuckyeslilkim proves to you just how deep her reasoning goes for it.
People ask how she can be an idol to people?
She is such a strong woman, with her being homeless living in a car with her mother, to making an empire for herself, to making music that empowers topics such a - Feminism, Equality in Women & LGBT She stands up for things others are and were.Lil’ Kim Started a foundation and organization that helped abuse victims and women who have been in abusive relationships.
Listen to her music, Her music is not all sexual.
" These next few lines it to you women abusers
Last nigga I was wit… straight fuckin’ loser
Niggas think ‘cuz you give ‘em ya heart
They can… dissect it and rip it apart
Mm-mm, not I, one nigga’s in my eye
Payback’s a motherfucker, put that on the Stuy
You lost a good bitch nigga you can’t front
Lil’ Kim is EVERYthing a man could EVER want
And that’s real” - Heavenly Father
“Oh how it hurts, like child birth
The wounds heal slow, you just don’t know
At times, I don’t know what to say
And all I do is pray, day to day
But still, I feel my strength might die
Like right now, I’m tryin’ hard not to cry
Even when I close my eyes, I still see it
Damn, I just don’t believe it
The bad times I buried, like the cemetery
Unworthy people playin’ beneficiaries
A lotta people eatin’ off of one man’s death
Don’t you worry B.I., I’ma ride to my last breath “ - Hold On
She empowers people in situations she experienced aswell, you feel the power and emotion she felt throughout the song, Her loyalty is the best attributes to her. As she was prosecuted FOR not snitching on her friends, which in return they placed the blame on her.
Rather than other female rapper fans and other People attack her, Learn and take something away from this. You might see someone who has had a change in appearance and comment or laugh, but you have NO fucking idea what events lead to it.
