'straight passing privilege' and 'cis passing privilege' don't exist. What's happening is called erasure, it’s not privilege, it’s part of oppression and a result of heteronormativity and cisnormativity. It isn’t privilege to have your orientation and gender constantly assumed wrongly, it isn’t a privilege to be erased and treated like you don’t exist.

Really feel like there’s a solid child-endangerment case to be made against anyone who doesn’t vaccinate their children.

I agree

Natalia Kills ran her mouth today about how “All About That Bass” is a song that bullies and victimizes thin girls. I then ran my mouth about how that is a load of bullshit on a variety of levels. (x)

the sooner you realize that the criminal justice system is about maintaining order (racial/economic/social order), not about maintaining justice

the more the way this country works will make sense to you

#oh my goddddddd #i’m automatically a million times more interested in rich kind of dickish superheroes when they are poc tbh #because like imagine being a little black boy growing up so so so smart and so so so alone #half your teachers dismissing you when you get bored and restless because you already KNOW all this stuff #and focusing on your disruptive behaviour that results from that combination of boredom and loneliness #you grow up without any real peers because the other kids at your rich fancy private school are all white #and nobody would ever dare say anything but you’re self-conscious anyway #so you deal with it by being as outrageous as possible because then at least you can control why they look at you askance #your dad’s been trying to prove himself to long gone heroes for as long as you can remember #and your mother loves you but she doesn’t always understand you #they die young and you go off the rails and it doesn’t even sting that they all think you’ve proven them right #because you kind of believe it as well #you’ve grown up never seeing a black boy on the television who wasn’t violent #and even when you get straightened out some with help from rhodey there’s a long fucking way to go #but you reach out and you /demand/ respect because you’re angry and you want justice for all your wrongs #the media never really accept you; they’re hungry for more of your misadventures so they can paint you like a villain (via peppermoonchilds)

Wow, OK, I had kind of conceptualized that Joss Whedon post along the lines of “here are some random thoughts that I’m gonna store behind a cut in case a few people are interested,” not expecting so many people to reblog it. But since there was so much interest, I ended up thinking about it more. And the direction my thinking took me in was this: what is it that women find attractive in male and female characters, and to what extent does this match up with what men assume that women find attractive in these characters?

All the this. 
What women want is subordinate to what men decide that women want, and the latter is then culturally broadcast as the ideological “what women want” that becomes accepted.”

Both of these posts are amazing. Well worth reading

Reminder that the plot for the Matrix was stolen FROM a black woman BY a white transwoman

Reminder that the plot for the Matrix was stolen FROM a black woman BY a white transwoman (look up the court  case, she sued and won - because she submitted a script and it was denied and then used without giving her credit).

Don’t get it twisted in the search for heroes.

reminder that the matrix trilogy was written and directed by a trans woman (lana wachowski) along with her brother

one of the most influential and iconic sci fi movies was created by a trans woman and MORE PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS!! lana wachowski is a babe and an inspiration, one of the few female directors in hollywood as well as one of the few transgender people in hollywood.

ETA: I’m putting the truth all over this effing post. (And also reblogging) Cause I’m tired of seeing reblogs that cut off the truth and promote the lie that this white transwoman didn’t play on her varied privileges to STEAL from a black woman.

I’m not here to promote that lie.

Fact check before you repost, people.

Sophia Stewart did not win her case. The one news article from October 2004 which said so was from the Salt Lake Community College Globe, and the journalism student who wrote it mistook a summary dismissal hearing for the actual case.

Stewart’s case was therefore not summarily dismissed at that time… it was dismissed in June 2005 when Stewart failed to show up at all for the preliminary hearing of the case. The judge then dismissed the case for lack of evidence, pointing out that Stewart had not only not shown up, but had not entered into the record any actual evidence supporting her claims or demonstrating any direct similarity between her work and the multiple films (not just the Matrix) she claims were plagiarized from her work.

i read up on that, but she went to court again in june 2014 and submitted her evidence.

her webpage says she won the case (couldn’t find any other sources).

___

I just posted how she’s still fighting in court (though she is getting Terminator Credits now) but she won judgement against her LAWYER not showing up in the Matrix case. And I’m pretty sure she won THAT one early 2014.

People keep choosing and picking what they want to link to and what they remember, as long as it’s about a black woman going against someone white and failing.

And it’s seriously pissing me off that there’s this expectation that people replying with facts DON’T KNOW THEM. When we have to be 2x as good and 3x as sure ALL the time. Cause yt ppl will always be ‘PROVE IT’.

But then y’know, they don’t want the proof. They’ll ignore the proof.

I’m just done with all these racists. Just. Done.

Its the new fucking ‘Draptamania’.

"Oh they couldn’t possibly be right, so I’m gong to make up something that makes me the right one and act rightest about it, and make it a definition."

I was not aware of this. Signal boosting and posting to go with my other Matrix post from last night.

Eff You and Rocket Racoon

seekingwillow:

If someone took my cane from me, because it’d be ‘FUNNY’ to see me hobbling around and falling down - it’d be a sign of what a colossal ablist asshole they were.

And my prosthetic isn’t even attached to my body.

Can people on my dash PLEASE stop reblogging things about Rocket Racoon, which involve him making jokes about stealing people’s limbs?

Just because he’s not sawing it off at the joint, doesn’t make it any less deplorable.

Everytime you do it,  I imagine you stealing my cane and watching me fall and laughing. I imagine you stealing someone’s wheelchair and watching them crawl, and laughing. It makes me want to get the eff away from you in extreme measures.

I have reached a point just before not caring you don’t understand what you’re doing and not caring it doesn’t reflect who you are as a whole. Life’s just too damn short - and some of us are slow on the journey anyway.

Thank you!
I’d say this was the most horrible part of the film, but there were quite a few contenders =/

"Belinda McClory plays Switch in The Matrix. At her audition she was only trying out for half of the role, though. The original idea for Switch was that it would be played by two androgynous actors. 

In the real world, Switch was  to be a man, but in the Matrix he was a she. That is, Switch was represented in female form whilst in the Matrix. Hence the name “Switch.” Warner Brothers revised the idea, though, and McClory won the role of Switch as a single female role in both environments.” X

I was watching The Incredible Hulk cartoon from the 90’s, and in one of the episodes She-Hulk chases on foot after a stolen sports car. My brain suggested this. I liked the suggestion.

Brilliant.
