    WHY DIDN’T THEY TEACH YOU ABOUT THIS IN HISTORY CLASS?

    The Christian Movement for Life, aka, MOVE

    • a pro-green, vegan, anti-technology group
    • living in a house in West Philadelphia
    • BOMBED by the Philly PD, from the air, on May 13, 1985
    • YES, 1985!!!
    • the city killed 11 people (5 children), burned down 65 homes in a Black, middle-class, West Philly neighborhood, and caused $50,000,000.00 damage - all to “evict” the group and recover two shotguns
    • You know of Mumia Abu-Jamal (3rd photo from bottom) but did you know he was affiliated with MOVE?
    • Ramona Africa (2nd photo from bottom) and one child survived
    • MOVE leader John Africa was murdered that day

    This was not the ONLY time an American city was bombed, btw. The first time, it was ALSO whites bombing Black people. And you want to talk about TERRORISM??? 

    And what else don’t you know about your country and it’s treatment of Black people?

    Get to Googling… AND Youtubing…

“Me love you long time” came into prominence with Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket,” (from 1987) as a Vietnamese prostitute tries to pick up Matthew Modine’s character with broken English. The phrase was then popularly picked up by 2 Live Crew in the song “Me So Horny.” “It’s so many different kinds of slurs in one,” comedian Margaret Cho said. “It’s instantly putting you in the position of being a foreigner, an outsider and a sexual stereotype. It’s an all-in-one combo.”

The popularization by Mariah Carey’s ‘Love You Long Time,’ Fergie’s ‘London Bridge,’ and Nicki Minaj’s ““Muahhhh me love you long time like I’m asian” demonstrates how this exotification of Asian/A.American women is constantly recycled in the media, perpetuated by celebrities to obtain the hyper-sexualized image needed to make it big, especially if you ain’t got the talent.
I would get started on Nicki’s whole hyper-sexualized, Japanese dolled up shit, but racialious says it best. Well researched: here http://www.racialicious.com/2010/11/01/the-orientalism-of-nicki-minaj/

  4. Heteronormativity isn’t just about the presumption that everyone is heterosexual. The expectation that boys woo girls feeds into your mind the expectation that relationships are necessary for fulfilment, and you are less than if you are not having particular kinds of sex with a particular, and a particular kind of, person at particular intervals. It’s about what Lauren Berlant calls the love plot, in which love is produced as a generic text enabling society to interpret your life as following certain conventions. It’s not about what you want, it’s about what you’re supposed to want. You’re not encouraged to think about what you want in relationships, if anything, so much as you are encouraged to fit a script. Heteronormativity messes things up for everyone, straight people included.

    Commonly confused medieval weapons, a powerpoint by me.

    Now stop screwing them up, seriously, or I will put a medieval weapon in your head.

    Tumblr is endearing me to being lectured at in Comic Sans

    THIS is a WAR SCYTHE, a scythe actually used in combat. Notice it is not a useless piece of shit and is an actual functional weapon.

    The only reason why death is pictured with a FARMING scythe is because he harvests souls.

    I received a package from the Bisexual Resource Centre today containing the goodies that I won for my entry in the I’m Bi, Out, and Proud contest that they held. Little did they know, they also supplied a nice gift for my oldest cat who is in love with both boxes and newspaper. It is hard to see in the photo, but the pin says “bi-serious”

    Bisexuals! We’re also useful for cats.

    "Your too fat."

    "I didn’t know [insert character] was black!"

    "Why don’t you do more black cosplays?"

    "Cosplay to your size!"

    "I don’t think that looks right on you, why don’t you cosplay [insert character] instead?"

    "Why is [insert character] black? They’re not black in the show."

    "You shouldn’t cross-play, it looks weird on you."

    "Your boobs are too big for [insert character]."

    To everyone who as ever posted a comment or question like this, my answer:

    I am a black plus size female cosplayer, if you don’t like it… well honestly I don’t care. The more you comment like an idiot, the more it feeds my will power to prove I’m an amazing cosplayer, not matter what you say. I may have days, or even weeks when I feel down about myself, but that will never stop me from doing what I love. I may have large boobs, chubby stomach, double chin, hair on my face, dark spots around my face and body, and a flat butt, but I rock any cosplay I put on. So grow up, and get out of my face. <3
