"Naming and shaming Internet creeps is the latest development in a centuries-long tradition among women of using gossip as a form of solidarity and even a political weapon. It’s still true today – I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard a woman say about a man, ‘He’s a little bit creepy,’ or, even worse, ‘I wouldn’t want to be alone in a room with him.’ To the uninitiated, it might sound like lazy character assassination, but phrases like that serve as keywords for women meaning stay away."
jessieflux wrote an amazing article about women using gossip and “calling-out” to expose online predators and creeps. She asked me to contribute my story, and I was really grateful for an outlet to talk about my experience.
If you’re coping with harassment and you’re scared you have no options, read her article! And I want people who are coping with harassment to know that there are ways to fight back, and that there are people who will defend them if they decide to make the situation public. I’ve been amazed by the support I’ve received. If you ever need to, and you feel safe doing it, know that you’ll have a lot of support and a lot of sympathy if you out that fucker.
i really wanna make a rad garnet cosplay. I could show mhy scares and lil kids will be like “garnet how’d you get that” and I’ll stoically reply “gem business” and they’ll be like wow cool and I’ll keep my self harm background story to myself while sobbing
tbh I don’t see the fuss about having waiters/waitresses not being happy and enthusiastic like I came here to eat I didn’t come here to be amused by employees as long as I’m getting my food and they’re not being blatantly rude I don’t see why y’all need to go on yelp to rank a restaurant 0/5 and have an outburst on why your waitress didn’t smile at you when she poured you water
huey’s afro is wrong there’s no music there’s no action and the plot is poorly written there are no metaphors/layers or social commentary about the complexities of black culture the show’s not funny anymore they switched the focus to new white characters who have nothing to do with the freeman family the characters swear more but say less and most telling of all huey has no lines (i think he said all of 3 words in the episode i watched)
all in all i’d have to say that the new boondocks is somehow as offensive as south park but with worse writing
That’s what happens when you let white people take your shit.
“I had a really interesting conversation with a white male educator and he asked me about the relevance. He went to an Ivy League school and said he would have really benefited from having women like the women who choose Spelman at my college. He said that would have really benefitted his education. I understood what he was saying, but he failed to realize the privilege in his statement. The parent who writes that check for their daughter to go to college is not thinking, “she’s going to help someone else get a good education.” They’re writing that check because this is the best possible experience for their daughter. And one of the benefits for American higher education is that there are a lot of different schools to choose from. If that guy really wanted access to smart, Spelman women he could have enrolled at Morehouse.”—
