The fluorescent insides of an opinionated mind

I am a blah blah blah, no. I am me and I do not like defining myself by labels. I agree with that they are important to identity with but I think it is absolute bullshit to use them to define you. You are you. These interests do not define me but gives you a little bit of insight into what makes my life that little bit sweeter: the 60s, intersectional feminism, vaginas, penises, full hairy sexy man legs, music, 20th century literature, vegetarianism, politics, anti-organised religion, musical instruments, antique furniture, lying by candlelight, fucking by candlelight, history, debates, pot, the Beatles, freak folk, trippy music late at night, floral. Lots of floral. I am brash and abrasive on a social level. Awkward on a first sight. Mushy on a personal level. I count myself as an Intersectional feminist, believe that feminism MUST be intersectional otherwise it's bullshit, and believe deeply in Queer Theory. Call me out if you wanna bro! Still learning about so much. I want to get my PhD in Gender Studies. Currently completing my Honours in Gender Studies and Politics. Feel free to ask anything or to start any debates about any topic.

Coachella is capitalizing on offensive Native American appropriation

Needless to say, many Natives are not fans of the trend. But that hasn’t stopped the festival from capitalizing on the “white kids playing Indian” motif and offering tipi rentals for the low weekend price of … $2,200? Paying rent in a New York City rat hole never sounded so good.

"White kids playing Indian"

An asexual and pansexual become room-mates and have wacky adventures

The show is called ‘All or Nothing’

Plot twist: the asexual is really super outgoing and is a huge flirt while the pansexual is extremely socially awkward and has trouble ordering coffee let alone getting a date.

"Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey."

To all the offended white males: We aren't referring to you personally when we criticize white males. (It's ironic, though. Leave it to white males to make everything about themselves.) We're referring to the white male institution; the population as a whole, not necessarily individuals. It makes me furious when I see men try to make it all about themselves and assume that we're talking about them specifically.

misandry-mermaid:

I mean, sometimes I am talking about them specifically though.  There’s a rape culture, but culture doesn’t rape people.  Individuals do.  Oppression happens on the macro-and-micro level, and it’s important to make that distinction because saying we are solely targeting white male supremacy as an institution takes responsibility off of the white men who continue to perpetuate oppression at the interpersonal level.  But you’re right too.  It’s just complex.

I find it annoying that white people keep saying Cleopatra was greek. Do you believe this or is this just another regurgitated lie attempting to white wash our history.

fucknofetishization:

reverseracism:

I do not believe it. The Egyptians were black. I do not care what the white washed history says. Most of it is lies created by old white men.

People assume Cleopatra was Greek because of her name. If an Asian woman is named Britney does that make her white? My name is Susie… Am I white? Hell Nope.

Many people do not realizing the Greeks and Egyptians were much like middle America and North America. They traded cultures, languages, Etc.

If in 500 years people look back on United States look back on the American English language and see that the Spanish language is being taught in school and quickly dominating English, will they believe the current North American society was in fact of middle American descent and not “culturally diverse”? People seem to find it hard to believe that older societies participated in cultural exchange and that black people did INFACT travel the world eons before the transatlantic slave trade.

With that being said, the Egyptians didn’t even call themselves the Egyptians, it was a name given by the English. The Greeks referred to them as “melampodes” (black footed ones).

Just like how Brazil is actually “Brasil”, but English speakers call it Brazil and the Spain is actually “Espana”, but the English speakers call it Spain. The Egyptians called their country the “Kemet” which directly translates to ‘land of the blacks’ and referred to themselves as the “Kemets” which translates to the ‘the black ones’.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I find it very hard to believe that a land supposedly full of white people would be referred to as black footed and then call themselves the blacks.

Another reason why many like to imagine Cleopatra as white, it because she was said to be incredibly beautiful (black woman supposedly can’t be beautiful). She was given hundreds of proposals, gifts, live stock, diamonds/jewels, etc (black women supposedly are undeserving of praise). Also, she was said to very emotional and sentimental, keep in mind the stereotype that black woman are either bitter, sassy, or strong; none of these stereotypes fitting the image of Cleopatra.

She was seen as graceful and elegant. Many Mediterranean (white) men lusted over her “exotic features”. Keep in mind that a white man wouldn’t say a white woman has “exotic” features. Also, with that being said, exotic isn’t a compliment.

It directly correlates to the hypersexualization and the desexualization of the black body.

The black body is often hyper sexualized, but seen as not worthy of praise or kindness. Which is why when her elegance is shown through media, you get what the western societal bias wants, a white woman. Apparently the only woman who is worthy of such praise
