I remember this!
I had to beg my mom to let us get a bottle of it. She got us the green ketchup and the first night we used it, my twin brother got it all over his shirt. That shit STAINS the fuck out of your clothes. She had to throw the shirt out, not before throwing a fit.
So I love ketchup with a mighty passion, but this was the nastiest tasting shit ever. My sister thought it tasted normal so we did a blind test with me when I was like 7 and I could totally tell the different between this and normal ketchup.
But seriously, who thought that shit was a good idea?
It is still fucking racism. God damn it open a fucking history book. Yes african Americans were slaves. So were white people. So were Mexicans, Hispanics and every fucking race. People have enslaved those of every single race. Hell it used to be if your city was conquered you were a slave regardless of color. Do not try to change the definition of the damn word.
So, pretty much what happened here was I said all injuries aren’t created equal ..
and I got the typical derailment “but they’re all injuries, wahhh, listen to me cry over my papercut while I shit on your well-informed analysis with my ill-informed psuedo knowledge (as if history books aren’t distorted LOL).
Man, it’s insane how unoriginal you bastardized roaches have become. I’m gonna start copying & saving my replies now, because its literally the same derailment every time.
hdu a paper cut is exactly like a gunshot wound
WE ARE ALL BLEEDING
even though a gunshot wound makes you bleed more
LET’S NOT GET INTO OPPRESSION OLYMPICS ALL BLEEDING IS BAD OK
You’re right. We should just forget our gunshot wounds and kiss white people’s paper cuts. And asking them to kiss out gunshot wounds is just asking too much…our wounds too bloody and ugly…

Shy Guy: Hey there..
Random Guy: Hey what’s up?
Shy Guy: Nothing much, just wanted to say you are really cute.
Random Guy: Thanks dude!
Shy Guy: So, are you here with anyone?
Random Guy: Yeah, my girlfriend just went to the washroom.
Shy Guy: Oh God, I’m sorry, didn’t know you were straight.
Random Guy: That’s alright it’s cool.
Shy Guy: You don’t mind me calling you cute?
Random Guy: A compliment is a compliment no matter who it comes from.
"And do not think you shouldn’t be standing on that chair, shouting ‘I AM A FEMINIST’ if you are a boy. A male feminist is one of the most glorious end-products of evolution. A male feminist should ABSOLUTELY be on the chair - so we ladies may all toast you, in champagne, before coveting your body wildly."
Caitlin Moran (via alysinw0nderland)
no, what will happen is I will kick him in the bits because I’ve yet to meet one ‘male feminist’ who wasn’t a manipulative misogynist wanker. this quote rly upsets me, because it’s bullshit; leaving aside whether men can call themselves feminists (they could if they weren’t almost all so mansplainy about it), I’m not licking someone’s arse just because they say I’m a human being. That is a very, very basic right.
is this quote a joke omfg i can’t
wow @ that entire quote
The description of her book, How To Be a Woman:
“There’s never been a better time to be a woman: we have the vote and the Pill, and we haven’t been burnt as witches since 1727. However, a few nagging questions do remain…
Why are we supposed to get Brazilians? Should you get Botox? Do men secretly hate us? What should you call your vagina? Why does your bra hurt? And why does everyone ask you when you’re going to have a baby? Part memoir, part rant, Caitlin Moran answers these questions and more in How To Be A Woman – following her from her terrible 13th birthday (‘I am 13 stone, have no friends, and boys throw gravel at me when they see me’) through adolescence, the workplace, strip-clubs, love, fat, abortion, TopShop, motherhood and beyond. “
this is jessica valenti on steroids
fuck memoir. and i know body image stuff is important but a lot of it and the mainstream feminist emphasis on dating and rooting men is just argggh.
you know, for some reason, I was *honestly* thinking that the few small nagging problems was going to lead into oh, men still are raping women at horrific rates, beating/killing them at home, etc..
which would mean she would be employing *sarcasm* when she was talking about those small nagging problems. but no! she was NOT employing sarcasm! she was not being ironic (on purpose at least)! she was being serious! she really DID write a book about small nagging problems!
and woah. let’s all get on a chair and covet mr’s body! cuz that’s the point of getting men to call themselves feminists! NOT, yano, getting them to stop beating us or raping us or whatever. the point is to get us all to HAVE SEX WITH YOU!!!!
i mean, really, she plagerized from mr. in a sense. he should really make her prove that she came up with that idea on her own.
I’m a male feminist… And I think that male feminists shouldn’t be on a chair shouting “I AM A FEMINIST”
Instead, we should be SITTING THE FUCK DOWN, SHUTTING THE FUCK UP, and appreciating that being cismale does not mean that we can, must, or should, be a leading element in the Feminist movement, purely by dint of gender.
These women are obviously the victims of an oppressive patriarchal regime and need white feminists to help them. Volunteers?

You know, some white people actually just like to play the djembe. And some white people know that they can’t keep a beat but they play anyway because it’s fun. Not every white person plays the djembe to look “cultured” as your tag says. White person + djembe doesn’t automatically equal “arrogant ass who wants to be “one with the African tribes” or whatever some people think of us white folks who own djembes.
yeah…….but see, in it’s native context, if you can’t play the djembe well, you’re not going to play it, period. at least not publicly. so i consider white folks banging away at djembes with no basic knowledge of specific rhythms (let alone the dances that go with them) to be arrogant asses. there’s also a basic respect with which you’re supposed to approach the djembe, it’s not something to be fucked with or taken lightly. so yes, i consider white folk banging away at djembes with no sense of history or decorum to be a form of cultural appropriation, and on top of that y’all got the audacity not to even be able to keep a damn beat? fuck outta here.

Attention white people
Yeah, I guess I’m going to have to write this again. Something that has been repeated by PoC and other magrinalized groups on here over and over…
Racism is NOT only about “getting your feelings hurt,” nor is any other oppression.
Personally, I didn’t decide to open up about my thoughts on racism just because my feelings were hurt by some white people one day. There was a HELL of a lot more to it than that. Dealing with an entire system and culture that oppresses you, automatically judging you as inferior and white people as superior, is a whole other monster.
If you think racism is only about hurt feelings or feeling uncomfortable, you are SO wrong.
And if you think you can experience racism from PoC just because some PoC hurt your feelings one day, what you experienced is discomfort and hurt feelings. NOT racism.
And if you were acting racist to begin with and a PoC told you to GTFO, then you didn’t deserve to feel comfortable or to have your feelings considered. And, lol no, reacting to you being racist and oppressive is NOT racism itself.
So can you PLEASE fucking stop claiming that white people can experience racism just because PoC being mean to you and calling you “whitey” hurts your feelings?
When you deal with a whole system and culture that oppresses you because of your skin color, then you can talk. But because white people benefit from that system, I don’t think you ever will.
So shut the fuck up.

Car Fax Fox, are you referencing the skilled World War II pilot Manfred von Richthofen aka The Red Baron? Because that guy was a Nazi responsible for shooting down 80 allied planes and killing hundreds, and you’re just a bargain hunting plush fox! Excuse me if I find the comparison hardly fitting.
Misandry is like reverse racism
or pixies and faeries.
Or Santa Claus.
If misandry exists, then
and reverse racism exists
and the poor have the ability to fuck over the rich’s wages
and able-bodied/minded people are degraded while people with disabilities are lauded for having them
and all atheists are considered morally superior, while those who subscribe to any religion are considered immoral and base.
It doesn’t work like that. There is no society in the world in which any of these things exist.
Just because I’m not black doesn’t mean I can’t feel just as angry and passionate about slavery. I mean, it’s still my people who were enslaved BY my people because all humans are my people just like I am “your people” even if you’re black, asian, etc.
I get some people don’t think a “whitey” can care just as much about racial inequality and some people will forever say that I don’t understand but I’m going to stand up for it just as much as anyone else cause these are my fellow people and it’s about human rights. <3
Ted Schmidt - Queer as Folk
“ Every year I always wish for the same thing - a boyfriend. Someone to love who’ll love me. This year I think I’m gonna wish for something else. The wisdom and maturity to realize that I won’t find what I want by looking for it. Not expect someone else to give me what I never gave myself. That I’m not a half waiting to be made a whole. And even if that special person never comes along… I’ll be just fine. ”
I love Ted, but I can’t stand how he fell into alcohol and narcotics abuse, and abused Emmitt.
Large swathes of me watching Queers USA was me shaking my hands at the screen shouting “Dammit Teddy, you’re tearing this family apart!”
as the great warrior-poet ice cube once said, “if the day does not require an ak, it is good.”
"That’s exactly what made America so different, we don’t have that colonial aspect of let’s go conquer somebody else and make our nation bigger and that’s because of the faith element."
I swear, some people will say anything.
Men are not the victims of sexism.
That is because sexism is aimed at women.
Men are hit with crossfire, i.e. strict gender roles imposed upon women relate back in the ways in which strict gender roles then effect men. But they do not do so as strongly.
To take a telling case, look at the incredibly wealthy men who lead fashion (haute couture). Most of them are pretty effeminate.
Now, look at all the butch women who are wealthy-
Oh wait, there aren’t any.
This doesn’t mean that men aren’t derided for being feminine, or that gender roles do not also hurt them. But they are not directly imposed upon them.
This plays out in the same way that trans men want to reclaim the t~slur. The word is aimed at trans women. Google it. Guess who shows up? Exclusively trans women. Guess what population that word is aimed at? Trans women. Exclusively.
However, trans men sometimes are hit by the word, because they can be misgendered as trans women. This absolutely does fucking not give them the right to reclaim this term. Because this term does not apply to them.
The same way, as if I were to be called a racial epithet to a race I did not belong to. I could not reclaim that term. Nor could anybody except for the people to which the term is levied at.
tl;dr: men aren’t the direct victims of sexism, they are collateral damage, in the same way that trans men sometimes get hit with the t~slur even though it’s aimed at trans women.
You Might be a Racist if… (Online Edition)
((Note: These are all things that crossed my dash in a 90 minute period of time))
Things you can say that would make me think you were a racist and why:
- Your opposition is specific-Your blog is filled with pictures and the only time you post something written is in opposition of the “African American History Museum” or something equally anti- (not your own) race specific.
- You Start your post/comment/reply with “I’m not racist.”-We’ve been through this but just a quick reminder, non-racists don’t need a “Qualifying statement.”
- Race doesn’t exist. It’s a social construct-This is just stupidity. As it was pointed out in the original post, saying “It is a social construct” doesn’t make it “Not real.” Most things we hold true are social constructs so this particular derailment is all kinds of dumb.
- I don’t see color (see also: We’re all human)-We’ve been through this as well but real quick, Example: If you don’t see color that would mean that you see police brutally attacking 100 unarmed people and since you do not see color you will refuse to see it as a racial issue. Even when it is pointed out that this kind of sick shit happens over 87% more often to non-white people. You will not allow yourself to see this as a “Racial issue” because you “Do not see race” and therefore are continuing to be part of the problem simply because you are incapable of being part of the solution. Ya know, ‘cause…color blind and stuff.
- I am Bi-Racial so I know both sides-I CALL BULLSHIT! Um…let me just point something out real, real quick honeybun. If one of your “Halves” is white, you don’t see anything “More clearly” than anyone else. This entire line makes me want to pounce on you and not in the fun sexual way. If you live in America or anywhere that has a predominately white society, NO MATTER YOUR RACE, you know the “White side.” It is the side that is chosen as “The norm.” Because it is “The norm” there is no great challenge to understanding. There is nothing to see more clearly. White is the voice of the nation. EVERYONE HEARS THAT VOICE. On top of that, from one Bi-Racial person to another, I think you are a real dick. That should mean more to you coming from me because ya know, “I see both sides too.” Pfft.
- Every race has been oppressed/enslaved at one time or another-Once again, been there done that. Still, I have yet to see this be brought up in a conversation that was specifically about slavery. This particular form of derailment is pretty damned disgusting because as much as you might like to shout “We were all…at one time” the lasting affects of each particular group IS NOT THE SAME. In order for this argument to be a valid one, the SYSTEMATIC OPPRESSION would have also had to be equal. They were not and are not.
SO MUCH WORD to the part about all PoC knowing white extremely fucking well.
I know what white people look like and do. I HAVE TO. It is REQUIRED for me to EXIST on this planet. The only motherfuckers who are completely ignorant of white people and how they roll is fucking WHITE PEOPLE THEMSELVES.
Transethnic: No, You Fucking Disgust Me
Fuck you. Fuuuuuuck you.
I will not, nor will I ever, accept this form of serious fuckery. Keep dreaming about your “pending acceptance” cause it ain’t fucking happenin’.
You white folks spouting this transethnic bullshit need to fucking evaluate your life, your choices, and the extent of your stupidity and racism.
It’s not even funny anymore.
The fact that you think you can take something like MY ETHNICITY and adopt it as a second skin makes me sick to my stomach.
Ethnicity in itself is a social construct. It is society that will judge you accordingly on your appearance and lineage (And if you fuckers even think of doing blackface…).
I don’t give a flying fuck if you acknowledge all your white privilege or go on an anti-racism crusade, you can never fully identify with the struggles or the aspects and burdens that come with being a part of my ethnicity. It’s not as simple as reading a couple of fucking books, hearing a few accounts and empathizing with our plight. You do not EXPERIENCE our dehumanization nor do you COMPREHEND the full extent of our suffering. I know you don’t. The fact that you identify as such nonsense makes clear light of that. To blatantly claim that you can or that you do is beyond insulting.
What you are doing is the most offensive/nauseating form of cultural appropriation. You are offending the very same ethnic groups you’re attempting to co-exist with.
You are also flaunting your privilege in our faces.
I’d love to identify as trans-white.
I want for me and my succeeding generations to be able to enjoy the life you all accept as simple normality.
But no. Society would look at me and, at best, see a skinny mulatto girl. I would never be seen as white, no matter how crackerish I’d feel on the inside.
With you morons, the story is slightly different, yet the slight difference really fucking matters.
Sure, you won’t be seen as what you “identify” as. But you won’t be treated as LESS THAN what you “identify” with. If you’re white and trans-Black, people won’t treat you like you’re a fucking Black person. Don’t you fucking get it? Our oppression is deeply ingrained into who we are. YOU CAN BE “BLACK” AND STILL KEEP ALL THE GLORY OF BEING SEEN AS WHITE AND TREATED AS WHITE.
And don’t you dare tell me you want them to treat you as if you’re “Black”.
Don’t even go down that fucking road.

There is no such thing as a pacifist labor strike. There has never been one in history. The success of a strike comes with the bosses’ knowledge that strikers will physically keep/push out scabs.
Labor historians and union folk need to publicly speak up about this when this debate is raised.
Even strikes in which no scabs are brought in and the strike is successful without violence only happen because the boss knows that the union has and will physically force their issue. It’s kind of like Mike Tyson calmly telling you to move out of the way at a nightclub. He doesn’t have to actually lay hands on you, but you know what will happen if you don’t, and the interaction can not be classified as non-violent.
There would be no unions right now if the union movement had been a non-violent movement. We would all be working 18-hour days from the time we were 8 years old."

this is stupid. what? just because you’re black you’re going to be mistaken as a worker? Excuse me, I may not be white but my skin sure is and people ask me if i’m…
I wonder how many people realize that this is just feeding fuel to the fire. I’m not saying there aren’t white people out there (or anyone in general) that hasn’t mistaken someone for working at some place they don’t. But this is just feeding to the stereotype that all white people degrade non-whites. This is the equivalent of someone posting a blog post stating some stereotype just to see how many people reblog and like, giving examples so that others can say “oh look. see! it must be true!” Yeah, racism is a problem, trying to solve it by being prejudiced against others, doesn’t help. And it’s funny how people just want others to agree with them. I’m oh so sorry for having a differing opinion than you. -rolls eyes- Whatever.
K, but u rong doe.
alright then. explain. I’d like to know how my opinion on the matter is wrong.
I would, but I don’t feel like it.
Anybody else wanna deal with this fool? Anyone? White allies?
Anyone who thinks the problem is POC talking about racism & how it impacts their lives instead of racism is probably a waste of time & energy. Just saying.
I was going to cite my experiences with white people coming to me thinking I worked at a place when I didn’t…and it’s always in retail stores or restaurants. It’s very rude, presumptuous, and inherently racist to assume that POC automatically are there to serve your needs.
Also, tell that white person to eat a bag of donkey dicks and go shut the fuck up somewhere. Why are white people always fucking interjecting their opinions in conversations that have nothing to do with them? He’s probably guilty, that’s why. Fucking spermwad.

Racism Is Boring.
Ever since that YouTube video of the racist tram woman was released a few months ago, the press and gov’t keep going on and on about racism, all of a sudden there’s a bloody racism story every other day in my papers and on my TV, therefore, I have concluded the press and gov’t just want us all to freak the fuck out, get more racist and turn on each other. Why is everyone buying into this?
I suppose Racism is boring to those who don’t experience it.

So, I didn’t see. You ran up from behind me, crazy sir.
Easiest headshot in the game.
No, white people, you don’t have any control over being white
But you DO have control over being oppressive.
This isn’t hard.
Feeling guilty for being white is silly and completely unproductive. But if you feel guilty for being oppressive? Then it’s up to YOU to deal with that guilt. Don’t ask PoC, whom you’ve probably hurt with oppressive actions and words, to do it for you.
And this is what happens when you whine about something I’ve repeatedly discussed before and something that has been said over and over again. I fucking hate having to repeat myself….

More on my loathing for the argument of ‘GODWIN!!!!!’
No. Sometimes parallels to the Nazi regime and policy are entirely valid and entirely necessary and should be pointed out. Saying that a guy who wants to deport all Roma people from his country or put them in internment camps is behaving in a similar way to the way the early Nazis behaved is entirely fucking valid. HE IS. THAT IS LITERALLY EXACTLY HOW THE NAZIS BEHAVED. THAT IS THE DEFINITION OF ‘HOLY SHIT GUYS THIS RINGS A BELL’. Saying that it is eerily post-Weimar of various state governments in America to want to register all immigrants and disallow people ‘with pronounced foreign accents’ to teach children is entirely valid because that is literally eerily similar to what the Nazis did during that period.
The Nazis were not some mythical bogeymen who were vanquished to the darkness along with the mythical magical Hollywood evil they brought forth. They were politicians. They were just Politicians who found a scapegoat during a time of major economic collapse and used it to brainwash the also entirely normal German public.
And guess what, it didn’t only happen in fucking Germany and it didn’t only happen once throughout history. The Holocaust is not this mysterious plague of evil which fell upon the earth out of nowhere and then vanished.
And to argue that any parallel to the very real, very recent, and very easy to replicate Nazi regime is just silly people overreacting is silencing and derailing and disgusting and I hate it.
YOU GUYS CANNOT POSSIBLY UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH I HATE IT.
