LET ME JUST SAY
IF YOU DON’T ALREADY THINK THIS WOMAN IS AN AMAZONIAN PRINCESS
YOU ARE DOING IT TOO WRONG FOR WORDS.
ahhhhh fuck please
NO ONE WOULD MAKE ME HAPPIER
While every disabled person will have their own take on this for themselves, i am not “differently abled” and i kindly ask that you not insist on calling me that. It may seem like a trivial thing, but it’s not.
When you call me “differently abled” (in most cases this is regarding your perceptions and interpretations of my body), you are obscuring (however intentional or not) the reality that what is actually going on is in part just an ableist social construction made architectural: some people are actively ENabled to be part of their communities/ neighbourhoods/ spaces/ etc, and some of us are actively DISabled from doing so specifically because in general those who are ENabled to do so are the ones making the decisions about how and when and where the constructed environment is created and DISabled folks just have to suck it up because, yknow, ableism."
who told you resistance is supposed to be polite
so you just gonna ignore the violent resistance in India that happened along side Ghandi
what the uppitinegras just said. also…ffs ghandi? you mean the guy that called-off his non-violent activism whenever it got uncomfortable for the middle class?
also you need to stop citing ghandi as the beginning & end of all activism, the guy was racist as fuck
I’m violently against that particular white feminism where “Kill All Men” is shouted by pasty white feminists as a sign of being ‘radical’ and what the fuck not. No, bitch, I’m standing in front of detention and torture cells where black and brown men are killed in more than one way. Standing in front of Gitmo, in front of TSA, standing in front of borders where brown and black men are used as bullets against each other, I don’t have the patience for your feminism. You can kill your white men and do us all a fucking favor.
Where’s my peach smoothie. Bring it.
Dear Nicki Minaj,
Next time you dress yourself in animal print clothing and dance around in a cage while being a colored woman, you should realize that you the result of years and years of male-dominated media stereotyping colored women as exotic, hypersexual, promiscuous, animal-like things. Not even human, just things, objects. Hope you’re proud of yourself and how you make colored women look. So, next time…just don’t.
a disappointed young woman.
While I’m not a young woman…
How about “no”.
First off, the very fact that the word “colored” is used rather than “woman of color” is WAY wrong. Like, a million times wrong. “Colored” is NOT an acceptable term. It is a racist term. Full stop.
Second, when non-Black women decide to chide Black women about how Black women are hypersexualized, objectified, etc., that is absolutely anti-Black and overstepping basic decency.
Third, I am tired of this ridiculous notion that Black women need to present themselves a certain way because they represent everyone and how they “make us look”. Nicki represents Nicki. If you don’t like her stuff, hey, that’s cool. You don’t have to. But she isn’t representing you, she isn’t the one oppressing you, and it’s pathetic to blame her for patriarchy. You have issues with how male dominated media deals with women, and women of color in particular? Take it up with men.
Fourth, do you think we can’t read the slut-shaming coded into this? We need to get past this idea that we have to tear down other women to build ourselves up. If you believe in modesty, do your modest thing. If you believe in an open sexuality, do your thing. Neither one of those needs to talk down to the other. Just do you and stop policing everyone else. If a woman has real self-respect, she won’t feel the need to tear down the ways other women express their own self-respect.
Fifth, you clearly don’t even understand Nicki’s work or how she is taking those expectations and playing on them. And that’s okay. You don’t have to agree with her. But don’t assume that you understand her intentions or methods or purpose.
Sixth, sorry, all the love, but men agreeing with this need to sit down. When men get in on this, you aren’t supporting women/women of color. You are contributing to hurting a woman of color. You don’t need to inject yourself into this.
^ EXACTLY FUCKING THIS. Why is Nicki Minaj being torn down for reclaiming herself and her body? You call yourself feminists and you pull this shit?
Yep. Frankly, the OP can shut the fuck up with their slut-shaming of Nicki Minaj. Her two cents on the sexuality of a black woman, whilst not being black herself, is unwanted (by me).
Also, “colored”? I should’ve stopped reading the second I read that.
LOL @ non-black women lecturing black women on what it is to be hypersexualized by the media, and blaming her on top of that. “LOOK HOW YOU’RE MAKING ALL OF US LOOK.” Ha! No.
