White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”

I will never understand why.

Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.

Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.

Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.

If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.

i finally put some thoughts into words // thedeathcats (via taint3ed)

This is nicely thought out and all, but to think that someone can’t experience racism because of their race, is ironically racist.

"but Joffrey in the books is still a 13-year-old kid. And there’s kind of a moment there where he knows that he’s dying and he can’t get a breath and he’s kind of looking at Tyrion and at his mother and at the other people in the hall with just terror and appeal in his eyes—you know, “Help me mommy, I’m dying.” And in that moment, I think even Tyrion sees a 13-year-old boy dying before him. So I didn’t want it to be entirely, “Hey-ho, the witch is dead.” I wanted the impact of the death to still strike home on to perhaps more complex feelings on the part of the audience, not necessarily just cheering."

just remember to clean your shit off D: also I wasn’t mad I was just trying to point out the obvious

I relate with this post so hard.

Things that don’t make people a weeaboo:

  • Liking anime
  • Liking manga
  • Being interested in Japanese culture or language
  • Enjoying Japanese video games/rpg games
  • Wearing clothing items or carrying bags with anime-related pictures on them
  • Owning any other merchandise related to the above things

Things that make people a weeaboo:

  • Being a complete and total disrespectful asshole who thinks that liking Japan makes them superior to everyone else.

I just had a funny realization.

My last girlfriend, of almost 10 months, broke up with me over a text.

I don’t know how I didn’t notice that when it happened. I was probably too pissed off to notice. But yeah…that’s a thing. Longest relationship I’ve had, broken up with over a text. Legit.

Why Hetrosexual men are afraid of rape

hier-stehe-ich:

I know what you’re thinking, and it’s not because they’re homophobes.

No, pretty much every hetrosexual man you have ever met is absolutely, to the pit of his stomach, terrified of hetrosexual rape committed upon women.

Let’s kick things off with a bit of background: Melvin Lerner’s ‘Just World’…

There Are People and They Are People

welcometomentalward:

It is too easy to forget how much people influence our lives, our moods, and our perception of the environment, so let’s remind ourselves the three types of people in terms of their outlook:

1. “Everything is horrible!” people.

These people would only notice and talk about the things they see…
