to do stuff after already having a busy day
Use the fucking specific ethnicity or race. “People of color” is not a new, “politically correct” term for “colored people” (I often see people use “people of color” in place of “Black”) but rather a collective phrase of solidarity. “People of color” is not necessarily interchangeable with “Black people” or “Asian people” or any specific group.
"Women of color" haven’t been twerking for years, Black women have. “Women of color” aren’t stereotyped as welfare mothers, Black women are. “Men of color” are not targeted by the stop-and-frisk program, Black and Latino men are. “People of color” are not targeted at the airport for “random searches”, people who appear to be Arab or South Asian (or otherwise have markers people associate with “terrorists”) are. I could go on.
Sometimes the phrases are interchangeable, like “people of color experience racism” or “women of color are fetishized”, but often they aren’t. When they aren’t, just use the group name! People of color all experience racism but often in different ways.

important Thing happening Outside House tomorrow and im afraid of becoming anxious while outside nooooooo
i cant believe what its like NOT to have unnerving dreams about people you’ve erased from your life every single night o_o
I’m just done with ~implied~ queerness, with ‘nods’ to queer fans, with speculation and almosts and queerbaiting in all its forms
I am done with subpar representation and breadcrumbs
I want canon queer characters and I want them now
Create them. Put them into the world yourself, if you really care about it.
like do these people think i control the mass media or something
it’s worth saying again: i will not be angry if you call me out on casual oppressive behavior so feel free to do so if i do something gross, even if it’s just a tiny thing!
im really sorry for being disrespectful about japan as a country when i was making fun of my 12-year-old weeaboo self!! behaving like this is a common trend on tumblr and i noticed it far too late. i will definitively stop being gross in this aspect.
I compiled some personal tactics and crowd sourced DIY remedies for the sads (clinical term) into a mini comic! Enjoy xoxo
