"Girl Scouts promote lesbianism and abortion!"

Yes why do you think I bought 15 boxes of thin mints. 

Yes, but Girl Scout shouldn’t be a thing, it should just be Scouting of America!!

Girls Scouts became a thing because guys could not and still cannot handle women in their troops defend the girl scouts to the fucking death because we aren’t equal and taking away safe spaces for young girls won’t achieve that either

Or, y’know, that thing called “Passover.”

Or the whole thing with Noah’s Ark where he killed off everything in the world except Noah and his family, and two of every animal. Y’know, no big deal. Just millions of people.

90% of the Old Testament is about God killing people in temper tantrums

Are we not going to mention Jesus?

Nailed it.

*wheeze* 

Oh my god.

Nailed it.

I'm a white girl and I understand I'm privileged, however the other day I was trying to explain to my class how casting white actors for other cultured characters is racist and was instantly shot down by everyone and the professor who stated I'm not allowed to complain about such things because of the fact that I am white and privileged and I could never understand what that's like so I don't get the right to defend other races. Why did this happen, am I really not allowed to defend others?

bbrightstar:

Your professor is kind of an idiot because he somehow manages to understand white privilege, white washing, and how racism affects poc etc, but FAILS to accept that it cannot be the responsibility of only people of color to educate white people. Imagine if we lived in a world where his logic was applied, and only the oppressed were allowed to speak of their oppression. 

When people of color are expected to educate white people as to their humanity, when women are expected to educate men, lesbians and gay men are expected to educate the heterosexual world, the oppressors maintain their position and evade their responsibility for their own actions.

Also, if your class desires a representative of another race to tell them how movie castings are white-washed simply because they “understand what it’s like” point them in literally any direction, seriously. There is nothing a white person can say about racism that a person of color hasn’t already said, written books about, or protested in the past. But the problems still exist, why? Because people of color are not in a position of power and will likely be ignored, talked over, or silenced when we speak out. The only way to really end racism is not if all people of color speak out about it, it’s if WHITE PEOPLE LISTEN AND EDUCATE EACH OTHER. I applaud you for taking responsibility and using your privileged position to try and make others aware.

You are self aware and self critical, and you are trying to teach others to do the same by example. If your class opposes this crazy notion that a white person should defend another race, that in itself is a symptom of white supremacy. You never claimed to understand what we feel, you simply listened and understand that it’s disgusting when hollywood cast white actors to play historically black roles. 

If it helps you in the future to use this ask to support your argument, by all means sister.

Asexuality is an orientation in which a person does not experience sexual attraction to any sex and/or gender. They do not feel an intrinsic desire to make sex a part of their relationships with other people. However they may still be able to experience other types of attraction, and desire relationships with other people.
