Never say that you “don’t care” about a person’s orientation, gender, disabilities, illnesses, ethnicity, religion, or any other aspect of their identities

Because all of those things are inherently a part of that person and their identity and by “not caring” about those things you are saying that you don’t care about them as a person, and also erasing important aspects of them

"Not caring" is not the same as being accepting, and it is certainly not respectful

"What is interesting, is that the Frida Kahlo venerated by American feminists is a very different Frida Kahlo to the one people learn about in Mexico, in the Chicano community. In her country, she is recognized as an important artist and a key figure in revolutionary politics of early 20th century Mexico. Her communist affiliations are made very clear. Her relationship with Trotsky is underscored. All her political activities with Diego Rivera are constantly emphasized. The connection between her art and her politics is always made. When Chicana artists became interested in Frida Kahlo in the ‘70s and started organizing homages, they made the connection between her artistic project and theirs because they too were searching for an aesthetic compliment to a political view that was radical and emancipatory. But when the Euro-American feminists latch onto Frida Kahlo in the early ‘80s and when the American mainstream caught on to her, she was transformed into a figure of suffering. I am very critical of that form of appropriation."

I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.

Then I spend time with teenagers.

And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.

Today I wore this shirt to school. Not ten minutes into first period I got called down to my principals office and was asked to change my shirt. I was told by the assistant principal that teachers may see my shirt and go off on a tangent from the lesson to talk about it. God forbid we talk about real issues in the world. The principal thought that “people may perceive it as a challenge” to the announcement she made the day before about girls not being allowed to wear short shorts or shirts that expose their midriff. I wasn’t in school that day and had no clue about the announcement. Every girl that i showed the shirt too said it was ridiculous. I checked the school handbook and the dress code and the only offense of my shirt is that it may be “”“distracting”“”
The only reason I didn’t fight back on this issue was because its so close to graduation and I don’t want to risk my graduation being taken away from me. I’m not going to be spent though, I’m already making plans for a new shirt for tomorrow.

It’s fucking ridiculous that the only response you got from this was somebody
Telling you
How
To
Dress

"We will sing to you, Doctor. The universe will sing you to your sleep. This song is ending. But the story never ends."

ooooooooh i actually like this a LOT

#so many amazing men and women of colour portraying one character through the ages #why couldn’t we have this?

I find this to be REALLY dumb on numerous levels. The reason Doctor Who is great is because of the actors, white though they were. If you wanna go off and start your own show that’s wonderfully imaginative and highly addictive that runs for 50 years, then by all means, go ahead. But Doctor Who is a man, and the guy(s) who invented Doctor Who wanted it to be that way. Re-appropriating this character isn’t constructive, it’s tearing down another human beings work and saying “This isn’t as legitimate because it’s a white dude playing this character.”Am I gonna get called a racist? Probably. Am I a racist? No. Fuck you. The point being, someone else made Doctor Who, a bunch of white guys made Doctor Who. It was THEIR PROJECT. IT’S NOT YOUR VEHICLE FOR DIVERSITY.  IT’S WHATEVER THEY WANT IT TO BE. The fact that Doctor Who is a white male is only the symptom of a problem. People of color were not and are not properly represented in modern media. It’s not Doctor Who’s fault he’s a white guy, but you can’t change that. Come up with a better show, come up with a DIFFERENT SHOW. Politically, the idea that people would want to change a property, or desire change within a property because of the skin color of the protagonist is disgusting, come up with your own.

How can someone be so obtuse? Is Doctor Who not a being that supposedly transcends race and gender? Portraying this character as a different crusty white man each time goes against this very principle. And yes, you are racist.

EVERYONE POINT AT ayn-randroid AND LAUGH. HAHAHAHA WHAT A DUMBASS HAHAHA 

And you do realize that the creator of Doctor Who wanted a female Doctor?

When the original series was struggling with ratings in the 1980s, the show’s creator, Sydney Newman, wrote a letter to BBC One Controller Michael Grade, admonishing the state of the show. He called for a temporary return of Patrick Troughton, who played the Second Doctor, before metamorphosing The Doctor into a female incarnation – a Time Lady.
So if The Doctor has the ability to regenerate into a woman, The Doctor could also regenerate into a person of colour as well. It would have been much more imaginative to have this iconic character transcend race and gender, especially since The Doctor is meant to transcend time itself. 

There’s no reason Doctor Who can’t be diverse yet still authentically English, especially if it wants to last another fifty years.

Can we talk about how ANGRY at a FANCAST that someone only made for fun this jackass got? 
Yes, you are being racist. Reexamine yourself.

also, doctor who wasn’t even the creation of a bunch of white men: it was mostly the creation of a woman and a south asian director
so, you know, get your fucking facts right before you get your bigotry all over my show, you goddamn casual

So if The Doctor has the ability to regenerate into a woman, The Doctor could also regenerate into a person of colour as well. It would have been much more imaginative to have this iconic character transcend race and gender, especially since The Doctor is meant to transcend time itself. 

There’s no reason Doctor Who can’t be diverse yet still authentically English, especially if it wants to last another fifty years.

Can we talk about how ANGRY at a FANCAST that someone only made for fun this jackass got? 
Yes, you are being racist. Reexamine yourself.

also, doctor who wasn’t even the creation of a bunch of white men: it was mostly the creation of a woman and a south asian director
so, you know, get your fucking facts right before you get your bigotry all over my show, you goddamn casual

"We will sing to you, Doctor. The universe will sing you to your sleep. This song is ending. But the story never ends."

ooooooooh i actually like this a LOT

#so many amazing men and women of colour portraying one character through the ages #why couldn’t we have this?

I find this to be REALLY dumb on numerous levels. The reason Doctor Who is great is because of the actors, white though they were. If you wanna go off and start your own show that’s wonderfully imaginative and highly addictive that runs for 50 years, then by all means, go ahead.
But Doctor Who is a man, and the guy(s) who invented Doctor Who wanted it to be that way. Re-appropriating this character isn’t constructive, it’s tearing down another human beings work and saying “This isn’t as legitimate because it’s a white dude playing this character.”

Am I gonna get called a racist? Probably.
Am I a racist? No. Fuck you.
The point being, someone else made Doctor Who, a bunch of white guys made Doctor Who. It was THEIR PROJECT. IT’S NOT YOUR VEHICLE FOR DIVERSITY.  IT’S WHATEVER THEY WANT IT TO BE. The fact that Doctor Who is a white male is only the symptom of a problem. People of color were not and are not properly represented in modern media. It’s not Doctor Who’s fault he’s a white guy, but you can’t change that. Come up with a better show, come up with a DIFFERENT SHOW.

Politically, the idea that people would want to change a property, or desire change within a property because of the skin color of the protagonist is disgusting, come up with your own.

How can someone be so obtuse? Is Doctor Who not a being that supposedly transcends race and gender? Portraying this character as a different crusty white man each time goes against this very principle. And yes, you are racist.

EVERYONE POINT AT ayn-randroid AND LAUGH. HAHAHAHA WHAT A DUMBASS HAHAHA 

And you do realize that the creator of Doctor Who wanted a female Doctor?

Don’t let boys who get turned on by cartoon ponies tell you shit about life

Don’t let people who judge your fetishes/taste in film and television tell you shit about life.

Don’t let people who dismiss the relentless and extreme sexualisation of a children’s television programme, who are therefore dismissing also the unavoidable availability of such explicit content to any child viewing related internet search results and webpages, as merely personal ‘fetishes/tastes in film and television’, tell you shit about life.

Teen Girl Ejected From Prom Because Horny Dads Can’t Stop Staring

A 17-year-old girl says she was kicked out of her homeschool prom because some lecherous dads complained that she was arousing “impure thoughts.”
In a guest post on her sister’s blog, a Richmond, Va., high school senior named Clare related how one of the women organizing the dance disapproved of her dress, even after checking it met the “fingertip length” dress code requirement. When she got into the ballroom, Clare, who is 5’9”, was amused to find herself surrounded by shorter girls in much shorter dresses.
On a balcony above the dance floor, a group of dads was, she said “ogling and talking amongst themselves,” which grossed out Clare and her friends a little bit.
After the kids had been “swaying with the music and talking and enjoying ourselves” for a while, the same chaperone who had complained about Clare’s dress pulled her aside to tell her that some of the dads felt her dancing was “too provocative” and liable to cause “impure thoughts.”
Clare protested that she hadn’t even been dancing, and was told once again that her regulation finger-length dress was too short. She was kicked out of the dance, and her friends decided to go with her.
The dance organizers said they would refund the group’s tickets, but only Clare got her money back, even after some of her friends’ parents called to ask about it.
In her post, Clare asks the Richmond Homeschool Prom to “refund my group as they verbally promised to do, and issue an apology for kicking me out of my senior prom because their husbands felt as though my body was something they had a right to control.”
"I’m not responsible for some perverted 45 year old dad lusting after me because I have a sparkly dress on and a big ass for a teenager," she concludes. "And if you think I am, then maybe you’re part of the problem."
The administrators of the prom’s Facebook group don’t seem to be swayed. They got so many negative comments about the incident that they gave up on deleting all of them and shut down the page instead.
