AnonymousHey the gofoundme twitter page just updated that they have closed the Darren Wilson campaign!!!

postracialcomments:

The campaign is still up and people are still able to donate. They just “deleted” the comments

So basically all they’re doing is hiding the obvious racism involved, making it even harder for people to show how the existence of the fund is inherently bigoted in nature.

Amazing. Talk about pretending to work for one group while stabbing them in the back.

Yeah

So fyi to everyone, find another crowd funding website to use!

Reminder to my readers, take care not to penalize or bury currently running gofundme campaigns because of this; that’s exactly what the white supremacists would love, if the campaigns to benefit Mike Brown’s memorial fund and the health and safety of Ferguson residents - and all the other fundraisers for minorities in need, good grief - were to quit bringing in money and quietly die off because of this. It takes time for people to change platforms.

But yes, unless they do a 180 and get rid of this piece of shit and make a huge public apology, I fully intend to avoid using their website in future and recommend that others also avoid it. 

This is what pops if you go to report the page now:

Looks like the organizer is getting out while they thing they can still be funded.

Whoops, changed to update. But yeah, they’re trying to run away with whatever money they managed to get now that people have gathered evidence of the blatant racism. Reeks of guilt like a landfill.

Since i’m seeing lots of posts saying “don’t mess with boys who: x” i’m gonna make one.
Don’t bother with girls who:

  • identify as a “misandrist”
  • ignore men’s problems
  • have a misandry tattoo
  • abuse men as a way to “empower” themselves
  • find ways to blame men for anything
  • reblog male tears posts
  • are assholes in general toward boys

just bc someone has low self esteem or has depression doesnt mean theyre not fucking disgusting and manipulative and i keep having to learn this lesson over and over

If someone uses their mental illnesses as an excuse to hurt you without apologizing you get the fuck out of there. My abuser would use it as an excuse and make me feel guilty for my hurt feelings because it wasn’t his fault he was cruel to me.

If I hurt someone while deep in depression or anxiety or what have you, I would feel terrible and take the blame since I clearly lost control. Just because you have something or something happened to you doesn’t give you the excuse to hurt someone else. Around when my mom’s sister died (my aunt) she got really upset one day and told me to just get it over with and kill myself already. She later told me it was because she was really stressed since she lost a couple family members that summer. But I still haven’t forgiven her. She did that before I had to drive to class. I seriously might not have returned that night. I was lucky that I have gotten really good at fighting my suicidal thoughts these past couple of years. So yeah.

AnonymousFeminist Frequency is asking for more money, to make the videos they promised to deliver ages ago.

That’s Anita Sarkeesian right?

Can’t say I’m a fan of her. Honestly wish she would stop talking about video games actually. Usually wouldn’t say that but she does not deserve her position in the gaming community, she completely misrepresents the games she “plays” and clearly either is an outright con artist or is terrible at money management.

I’m in agreement with Dawes. Her research, if you want to call it that, is done in a tunnel vision fashion. What really irks me about her project is that she was taking others walkthrough footage, and artists personal work without permission.

I’m not able to find anything where she blatantly is asking for more handouts. I’m not going to link to it, but on FF’s website it does have a donation page.

Sarkeesian has been tweeting the link to the page rather frequently in the past week. The donation page also says that FF is recognised as a non-profit organisation.

Some food for thought.

Two brides have become two of the most kickass women in the world by marrying to protest against homophobia in Russia.
Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole. ‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.


holy jesus look at these two warrior princesses
they are my heroes
YOU GO GIRLS

"Oh, you don’t wanna recognize my gender? Okay then lol guess you have to recognize my marriage"

They both look so badass and beautiful.

Life update! I’m all moved into college and started classes a few days ago! My college has some cool stuff and is pretty diverse with opinions and people which is pretty great. I still don’t really have time to post often but once things die down here you may see more of me. 

What do I have to say about the drama on the blog? I don’t like it, I don’t like when mods are rude and I don’t like when mods don’t follow rules. If I see it when I come back, those mods will not be coming back. Follow rules, be considerate of others, and don’t be a fuckin dick. That’s all darlin’s.

AnonymousMy parents say they don't care about who I'm dating, but they constantly tells me not to date any of Muslim origin because one friend (theirs) got a 'bad nut' and the guy I like happens to be Muslim. How can I approach this without them freaking out?

Who you date is up to you and not them. They should support your decisions and who you love. If the only problem they have with someone is their religion, then they need to rethink some things. That’s on them and not on you. 

Love who you love darlin, don’t let others tell you who to love.

AnonymousThe more I think about it, the more convinced I am that white and male privilege are total bull. Cis, Hetero, maybe even class privilege, sure, but really, they get racism and sexism too, the difference being it's more acceptable when it's "reverse "

the-triforce-of-justice:

disneyvillainsforjustice:

Acceptable or not, there still is such thing as white and male privilege. Go ask non-white people and women how often they feel discriminated against in any setting. People become more wary and defensive of their property when non-white people are around. And women, are kept from doing many things because they are still seen as weak. For a situation that requires strength and/or courage it will be assumed that any man is fine with it, but if there is a woman, at least one man will ask “are you sure?” If not completely refusing the woman because she wouldn’t be able to “handle it”. Being a man means not being pushed behind someone else when you are threatened in any way. If you are a woman, men will push you back thinking you need to be protected.
And then white privilege, if you are white, you aren’t viewed with skepticism when being hired for a job or when you are acquiring property. And many other things.

I hope you don’t mind me butting in!

I definitely agree with what you say about white privilege. I have seen the mistrust of non-white people firsthand, especially by people who claim to not be racist! People saying such things as “I wouldn’t answer the door if there’s a strange black guy knocking.” etc. I live with someone who fears his neighbours because they are brown (and therefore Muslims, so not only is he racist but also Islamophobic). He’ll interact with them kindly if he sees them outside but he doesn’t trust them.

However, when it comes to male privilege, I’m not entirely sure I agree that women being seen as the weaker gender is privilege for men. Sure, they’re seen as stronger, but in that regard they’re also seen as disposable, and certainly more prone to injuries, especially work-related injuries and violent crimes. Due to their perceived strength it’s harder for them to seek safe spaces and treatment for mental illnesses - they have to “tough it out” or “man up.”

Personally, I don’t think either men or women have ‘privilege’ over the other, but that both* have their own sets of advantages and disadvantages that come with being the gender that they are.

*(Not trying to erase NB folks here, just that I’m talking about cis men and cis women. I am aware that cis people in general have privilege over trans/NB people, but that’s not the topic of discussion.)

I am not saying women don’t have privileges too. Op asked about white and male privilege, so that is what I answered. Both men and women have different privileges and disadvantages. Men are basically obligated to be big, tough, and disposable for women. While women are supposed to clean, cook, and raise a family. Men are having less privilege’s because feminism is upping the rights of women and negating a bunch of that privilege, but the same is not being done to lift men up either. Yes men are seen as disposable, but both men and women can be kept from doing what they want to do solely because of their gender. Men will still be trusted a bit more than women on some issues because women are still seen as too emotional for some things, or too irrational. Basically gender roles. Gender roles define what you can and can’t do. And I hate that.
