Anonymous said: I headcanon every single protagonist of the pokemon games as nonverbal or partially nonverbal. This is such an important headcanon to me because I often go nonverbal and I am very scared of going nonverbal in public places. When the protagonist in pokemon only has to nod yes or no and their friends and family never underestimate them or get angry at them for only nodding yes and no, it feels safe.

How many times do I have to hear someone say some kind of fluff along these lines in response to discussing the oppression faced by a specific minority group?:
"Oh my gosh, why are you so focused on the issues of one group of people?! What about the issues faced by groups X, Y, and Z? We can’t build everyone up as equal if everyone is constantly separating us into different categories! "We’re all just one big human race! All of us as human beings face adversity. Why can’t we just focus on the struggles everyone has to face, instead of focusing in on the issues that group A faces?"
Not every discussion regarding oppression has to focus on every group that is oppressed at once. The argument that we’re “all just one big human race” and we need to stop separating everyone is an argument that I almost exclusively hear from white cisgendered men. You know, the people who already have all the power and aren’t actually oppressed by sexism, racism, transphobia, etc. I’m a fat, Autistic, queer, woman of color. All of my minority statuses effect me in different ways.  You can’t mash all of the issue caused by each of my minority statuses into one tiny segment, because then we aren’t able to delve very far into each one. The entire point gets lost. For example, lumping Disabled people’s issues in with every other minority issue is a problem because it prevents us from deeply exploring the issues and struggles specifically faced by those with disabilities. Then these problems go unaddressed and we see absolutely no change. You’re actively minimizing and trivializing the issues faced by that specific minority group.

So take off the privilege- colored glasses you’re viewing minority issues through and look at their problems with common sense and a dose of reality. We can’t look at things from the view point of “We’re all just one big human race.” We can’t view everyone as equal while huge segments of society are oppressed and the other segments participate in and/or benefit from that oppression. Until the day comes that humankind stops oppressing its fellow members, we have to look at minority groups through separate lenses to become aware of the specific problems each one faces, and to find ways to alleviate their group- specific struggles.

So when someone is discussing, or advocating for, or trying to empower a specific group of oppressed people, please don’t be that asshole to chime in with “OMG, but what about everyone else in the world with problems?” Just don’t.

THE TRUTH OF NATIVE AMERICANS BEFORE THE GENOCIDE

Gotta put this on blast.
We never needed a white savior.

I hate this country.

What I learned from this video:

  • 100 million Native Americans died at the hands of white colonists
  • Instead of planting crops the colonists spent their days digging random holes in the ground looking for gold. They started starving and dug up Indian corpses to eat. They took Indian prisoners and forced them to teach the colonists how to farm
  • Native Americans had massive cities with tens of thousands of well constructed houses, intricate water canals and large merchant areas.
  • The Native Americans used soaps, deodorants and breath sweeteners while colonists never bathed or even took of their clothes
  • There was a delousing policy with the mantra Nits create Lice; nits being Native American babies, so their goal was to kill every Indian, including babies 
  • In the 1700’s 80% of the Federal Budget went towards eradicating the Native American population so they could take their developed farmland
  • Colonists leaders went town after town killing men women and children under the approval of George Washington
  • "Pursue Indians to extermination" -Thomas Jefferson
  • California governor (1849-1851): “extermination must continue to be waged until the Indian becomes extinct”

The main factor which prevented Native American extinction was the fact they were used for slave labor. The most prized Native Americans were young girls who were said to be valued for labor and lust (that one white dude in your ethnic studies class that says he’s 1/36th Cherokee?)

In modern times children were forced into Indian Boarding Schools whose goal was to “Kill the Indian in them”. It was federal policy. They were beaten if they used their native tongue, they were forced to dress and style their hair like whites 

This country was literally built on terrorism and mass murder. White people are savage terrorists.

This is Susan. She’s friendly and very sick. I found her today and I believe she was possibly dumped at the side of the road by someone.
I am opening up donations to fund her recovery. She’s going to need expensive vet care. From examining her myself, she’s going to need cat flu medication, flea treatment, worm treatment and ear mite treatment.
All of which will add up to an expensive vet bill that I will struggle to cover myself. I am a student and I do not have family support and am surviving on allowance I get from the government which barely feeds me, covers my cat Henry’s food or pays the rent.
Any money you give will help Susan without leaving me hungry or my rent unpaid. NONE of the money I get will go into my pocket. Extra money that is unneeded in current treatment will go towards vaccinations and eventual neutering and microchipping for Susan. Any money past that will go to The Irish Blue Cross. 
I will post progress photos after she comes back from the vet and until she is better. 
Please reblog this and donate so I can help her as soon as possible. 

Signal Boost for Susan.

an important factual presentation by me

All the facts.

 ourladyofthe-missionary-position:

I’m all for accurate representations of people of color, but Cleopatra is a terrible example to use in this situation. Even though Cleopatra is one of the most Iconic Pharaohs of Egypt, she didn’t have a drop of Egyptian blood in her. She was actually Greek. She didn’t even speak Egyptian at first, but later chose to learn it to better communicate with the Egyptian people. So in all actuality, Cleopatra was white.
Hatshepsut, Nefertiti, and Nefertari are much better examples, as they were actually of Egyptian ethnicity.


Though I do agree that both portrayals of Cleopatra by the white actresses you provided are pretty terrible. Unlike Nefertiti, Cleopatra wasn’t infamous for her beauty, she was actually quite plain looking, even a bit homely, and she didn’t dress very ornamentally at all. She was instead beloved for her wisdom, intelligence, and cunning. All that gold and makeup is completely uncharacteristic of Cleopatra, and the wig the woman on the left is wearing was fashionable among Egyptian royalty during the 12-1300’s BC, back during Nefertiti’s rule. Cleopatra didn’t rule until 69 BC, long after it had gone out of style.

The FBI supplementary homicide report for 2010 showed 38% fewer women are shot to death in states that require a background check. Do you think background checks should be mandatory for all gun sales?

It’s insane that’s even a question.

Thankfully I live in Canada, where in order to buy a handgun you must get a police background check and pass a mandatory safety course for restricted firearms. There are also a number of regulations for storage and transport.  In 2009 there were 173 homicides committed using firearms in all of Canada, or 0.5 per 100,000. In the same year in the United States, there were 11,101 gun related homicides or 3.6 per 100,000, over 7 times as many per 100,000 in Canada. Hmmm, wonder which gun control policy works better…
