Miranda. 23. Useless wastrel who daydreams in sequins, comic book expressions and musical numbers.

You might know me from that one glasses meme.

Prone to posting feminist quotes, various and varying babes, items of the literary and comic nerd culture and the more than occasional tentacle.

Any reaction images/gifs I post (unless they are of my face) are almost definitely not mine.

Shout out to all the POC who’ve ever been made to feel as if they’re being a bad representation of their race just because they enjoy “stereotypical” activities racists expect them to enjoy.

And fuck off to all the POC who’ve ever made their brothers and sisters feel that way.

The only person “holding back the race” are those who think the feelings of racists should in anyway dictate the actions of POC.

what if “lucy” was about lucy liu casually beating up pervy white dudes instead

and the story was about an asian woman who gets justice from the white men who used and abducted her

and it was an effective commentary on white imperialism, the violent commodification of asian people and asian culture by western society, the demonization of asian people, and the continuing history of violence on unwilling asian bodies especially those of asian women by white people

and what if when a pervy white dude asks the asian woman “do you speak english” while he’s in fucking taiwan, she shoots him in the head instead

what if this movie wasn’t going to be a bunch of white imperialist nonsense masquerading as something “progressive” at the expense of faceless nameless asian bodies

apocalypsecanceled:

why do white feminists think ‘BUT WE NEED MORE LEADING WOMEN IN THE ACTION GENRE’ is a good excuse to watch lucy do they honestly believe hollywhite just completely missed GRAVITY and the ENTIRE MOTHERFUCKING HUNGER GAMES FRANCHISEwhat do they think the funding for ‘lucy’ is coming in the wake of?

they boycott pacific rim (which, yknow, had a japanese woman shoving some of hollywhite’s most racist & sexist tropes so far back up its own ass it was still tasting them the week after) for not passing the bechdel test but blatant violence and racism, well that can slide, that’s great representation, that’s empowering for women.

Hey, guys, guess who still has ALL HER TUMBLR’s!!

Yeah, that’s right, it’s nationalisthousewife.

Here, I’ve even included an email so all you guys have to do is copy/paste to send an email to abuse@tumblr.com to GET HER BANNED

I would like to report thenationalisthousewife for hate speech, racism, and tag spamming.

This user goes by multiple usernames, those I know of being:

- thenationalisthousewife.tumblr.com
- nationalisthousewife.tumblr.com
- polite-and-white.tumblr.com
- whitenationalist.tumblr.com
- queennationalist.tumblr.com
- racistdesu.tumblr.com

The use of multiple profiles is done in a direct attempt to avoid a ban. Her blogs, all of them, contain hate speech, use of racial slurs, and racism. She also spams the tag for pocecil (Person of color cecil), which makes users who are people of color feel directly unsafe. She has stated she does so specifically to make these people feel unsafe.

This user needs banned from tumblr on all of her accounts. She is making sections of this site dangerous for individuals in minorities to be on. This cannot continue.

after hearing about it through the submission to @angryasiangirlsunited, i checked out the trailer of Lucy and am even more disgusted. and so not surprised. whiteness is getting too old.


the upcoming movie lucy will feature the age-old racist narrative of pure white woman (scarlet johansson) being violated by scary, brown men. and the new white feminist trope of women gaining their power by violently eliminating brown men. who needs the white male savior when we now have white female saviors, taking it into their own hands to save their whiteness from all that non-whiteness. so radical.



My favorite part are the white feminists who are raving about this movie because “strong independent woman yaaaas!!”

i’m just wondering why there are herbs and fruits and vegetables written in a faded, creepy red on a prison-like wall in chinese.  are herbs and fruits and vegetables in chinese supposed to be part of some sort of scare tactics?  or am i missing something here?

HAHAHAHAHA

The above makes this so much better

OMG THIS MOVIE IS BULLSHIT OF THE HIGHEST ORDER THEY COULDN’T EVEN BOTHER TO GET SOMEONE TO WRITE ACCURATE SHIT IN CHINESE ON THE WALL THEY PROBABLY GOOGLED A TAKE-OUT MENU OR SOMETHING THIS IS WHAT A $20MIL BUDGET BUYS IN HOLLYWHITE EVERYONE! 

I just asked a family member to translate this. They came back with “Keep Clean. Apple, scallop & ginger, orange, tomato, grape”

Okay so like. Here’s the thing Night Vale fans should be doing.

Stop pretending the Night Vale fandom has any potential of becoming a safe space, ever. Stop pretending it is one. Stop pretending it can ever be one. Stop pretending that pockets of safe spaces can exist in this all- scorching, all-burning hellhole. Don’t let folks of color let their guard down. Come up and front with the announcement this fandom is fucking OVERRUN with racists. It’s not only extremely difficult to make a safe space on the internet operate in any capacity on a platform like tumblr (where the community is tag-based and unmoderated), this false notion only serves for the whites present in the fandom to backpat themselves over some bizarre notion of creating an inclusive space. While other whites, usually in droves, dive right into said safe space and start shitting and pecking at all and sundry. Don’t let folks of color get their guard down. Come up and front and tell them this fandom is notorious for drumming out people of color, tell them this fandom is notorious for whitewashing characters of color, tell them this fandom has a history for sending people of color violent death threats and goading them into suicide for talking up about racism. Let them know exactly what kind of space they will be participating in because their emotional and psychological safety is worth so much more than your white-ass self-congratulatory “safe space” nonsense. Tell them blogs have been made to silence people of color, one of them named white-cecil-only. Tell the queer people of color that a blog called fucknocecilos exists, the mod of which uses racist slurs in addition. Come up and front and tell them they will be participating in a fandom that finds every wiggle room to whitewash, silence, dismiss, threaten death to and belittle people of color, and if they ask you how that’s even possible with a progressive canon such as Welcome to Night Vale remind them that it’s exactly like reading the comments on a progressive and popular article.

No, better yet, remind them that sometimes media is created that caters to and is inclusive of a particular audience or demographic and the very opposite decides to hijack the shit out of it for their own ends.

Like racists dicking all over WtNV. Or you know, bronies. They should be familiar with bronies.

This is what you should be doing, unless you’re too busy being complicit and enjoy the false sense of security and heightened sense of grandstanding this fandom offers you. Because tackling this situation is obviously going nowhere and the number of people being vocal about this rampant problem of racism is only growing smaller in numbers by the day. Either get your shit together and sort this nonsense out and COLLECT YOUR TRASH AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY POSSIBLE or don’t expect people of color to be placated with your half-assed liberal activist nonsense and don’t lead them into letting their guard down.

i am a white male and i speak for all white males when i say i am uncomfortable with how we are portrayed on this website  

We only report the way that you guys behave irl, so perhaps that’s a signal to you guys to fix that.

i like how he can only complain about how he’s portrayed on fucking tumblr by a handful of bloggers and everyone else complains about how they’re portrayed ON TELEVISION AND IN HOLLYWOOD AND IN THE NEWS AND IN CLASSROOMS AND HOW THEY’RE TREATED IN REAL LIFE

Also: Why would I listen to a white male who has a racial slur in his username.

annoyance

hypergrl:

"You hate white people," she said,

flipping her blonde hair over her shoulder,

the strain of indignation flashing in her blue eyes.

"You’re too political," she continued.

"It’s annoying."

And I stare back at her with my nostrils flared,

anger bunched into my fists, heat…

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)

I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.

I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!

this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.

I CAN’T WAIT

So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway.  Ask box is open, slam away.

When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people.  By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.

Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it.  A BLACK orphan?!  Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.
