Fun Fact

Pressing J while looking at a Tumblr blog or home feed will scroll up on the page, pressing K will scroll down. This is helpful considering a lot of the Tumblrs feature infinite scrolling.

ms-hells-bells:

it’s all about the origins. was the word invented/originally used to demean a group of people alongside their oppression? slur. was a word originally chosen to be used by a group and then gained negative connotations DUE TO being associated with that group? not a slur. huge difference. 

catlogicdefiesall:

Yes, when I heard slimy little brats saying “That’s so gay” they were taking a positive  word to use as an insult, not using one that was never anything else.

I daresay the genderspecials who think they can “reclaim” queer were saying  “you’re so gay” as an insult in the schoolground.

deputy-shayy:

I read dumbass posts like these and it makes total sense that American is trying to reopen. You are all so, so fucking stupid it hurts.

unholy-lesbian:

i just know that this is about you moron trying to defend qu**r, so: you’re trying to make qu**r a normal world AFTER it became a slur. the insult part of it was being weird or abnormal. homosexuals started using gay BEFORE it became an insult. the insult part of it is being gay.

feetpicdealer:

noah fence but that is NOT what a slur is. a slur isn’t using a word incorrectly, it’s a separate solely demeaning word.

someone negatively saying “wow you’re so mentally ill” doesn’t make “mentally ill” a slur, does it?

capcourse:

no problem! i dont think they were on air for a long time, so im sure there are a lot of people who dont know about ‘em! 

wheatleylaboratoriez:

hey, thanks for providing sources! i genuinely did not know these existed because i never saw these PSA’s

capcourse:

idk if this is a “i dont believe you” what or a “you mean there are people who havent seen these??” what but allow me to enlighten you

i havent watched this commercial in 10 years (which was also when it was posted) but yes i remember this playing on TV when i was younger

heres an article from 2009

heres an interview from 2009

in fact, these were so culturally relevant that i distinctly remember watching a dane cook special where he had a bit about it (i think he also mentions rape so tw for that) 

i grew up hearing gay be thrown left and right as a derogatory term, and its a small part of why i dont identify with the word.

if youre going to say that queer is a slur, then you have to mention that gay is used as one as well. otherwise, youre just spewing t///er/////f propaganda and im not about that bullshit   

wheatleylaboratoriez:

what

capcourse:

all these people who say gay was never a slur are too young to remember those psas that told you to say stupid instead of gay

“Words can change in meaning over time.”

Yeah, except you never even asked the group the words belonged to if they were willing to give you access to them, if you think stealing identities from minorities is progressive you’re just an evil homophobe.

cop-disliker69:

argumate:

crazy that the Kondo discourse is still rolling on, but I guess people care more about justifying their personal media consumption preferences than anything else.

I hate the entire concept of having to gaze at oneself as the type of person who buys X. Whether it’s a media product or any other type of product. It’s a cruel and psychologically destructive mindset imposed on us by advertising. This preposterous idea that a certain type of person buys X and not Y.

People all have to do this rhetorical jiu-jitsu to explain why they consumed X but they’re not the type of person you’d think consumes X.

And then you blend it with wokeness and it becomes this increasingly toxic horror show of madness and stacking levels of irony and self-awareness. God I hate it so much.

Advertising and marketing are a plague on humanity. Adbusters was right about everything. Fight me.

Ocean Ramsey and her team encountered this 20 ft Great White Shark near the island of Oahu, Hawaii. It is believed to be the biggest ever recorded

She’s so beautiful!! 💙💙💙

SO lovely!

LORGE PAL :D

FRIENDS HOLD HANDS

God, I’m obsessed with this video. The way you can see all the scars and craters on her skin, the way the gill slits wave in the current, the sense of just how massive she is compared to that diver… it’s incredible. Just this enormous animal lazily swimming by the camera.

When 99% of the time you only see sharks in sped-up footage accompanied by threatening orchestral music and some narrator dude ominously intoning that it is “the most perfect killing machine the world has ever seen”, you tend to forget sharks are such beautiful creatures. This video doesn’t show a “monster shark” or a “killing machine”. It shows an animal - and a fucking beautiful one at that.

What’s up just a reminder that the Hula Girl stereotype can go to hell and is in part responsible for Hawai’i being the tourist destination and getting invaded by rich white people, and for Hawaiian culture being disrespected and appropriated


Here’s a few sources on the topic:

How America’s Obsession With Hula Girls Almost Wrecked Hawai’i (the site is weird but the research is legitimate, gives a good overview of the issue and references a lot of sources that are harder to get your hands on read: books)

“Pop” Goes Hawai’i: The Twentieth Century Origins of Tourism in Hawai’i and the Impact of U.S. Pop Culture on Women in the Islands of Aloha (this one is very long but a really good read)

Misperceptions of the “Hula Girl” (this one is a personal essay but it’s an entry in the University of Hawai’i’s academic newspaper)

Cool cool so its Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month so I’m gonna uh. reblog this

Also if you don’t have the time and/or energy to read through these articles lemme give you the basic breakdown (I’ll try to keep this short, but I’ll put it under the cut because it’ll probably still take up space)

Keep reading

there’s not a person in this world who hasn’t embarrassed themselves or hurt someone or made a mistake. learn and grow from these things, rectify them if you can, but don’t dwell on them. we are all human; we are all imperfect.

Posts like this really show what libfem priorities are. They’re concerned about defeating toxic masculinity so that men can wear ugly pink clothes but when it comes to tackling toxic masculinity to defeat things like commodification of women and sexual violence, they suddenly switch off.

mooonbride:

“I was socially rejected because I like video games” no tyler, you were socially rejected because you turn every conversation you have into a competition and you call women “females”

mooonbride:

The funniest part about unlikeable geek men is they really are fully convinced people don’t like them because of their hobbies. They cannot even begin to process the idea that comics and D&D and shit have in fact always been kinda cool and their personslities might just be repulsive. The combined unwavering ego/persecution complex is… unreal.

Sylvia Plath was right

About what?

“Being born a woman is an awful tragedy. Yes, my consuming desire to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, bar room regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording —all is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yet, God, I want to talk to everybody I can as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night.”

Achievements of people born into excessive wealth mean nothing I’m sorry

it’s so interesting so many people keep repeating this same line of “it’s not like they could control where they were born”. and yet. absurdly rich folks do not take that into consideration when poor people need something they don’t immediately have. it’s always “well work for it! work for your food/water/shelter/health” there’s never any consideration to what life that poor person was born into even though they never had any control over it either. interesting how wealthy people feel comfortable playing that card.
