Tatiana tears up as a fan thanks Tatiana and the show for giving her the courage to come out and for writing Cosima as a character who is more than her sexuality. (x)

#orphan black #representation matters 

"

“If you really believe that representation doesn’t matter, then why the fuck are you threatened by it? If not seeing yourself depicted in stories has no negative psychological impact - if the breakdown of who we see on screen has no bearing on wider social issues - then what would it matter if nine stories out of ten were suddenly all about queer brown women? No big, right? It wouldn’t change anything important; just a few superficial details. Because YOU can identify with ANYONE.

So I guess the problem is that you just don’t want to. Because deep down, you think it’ll make stories worse. And why is that? Oh, yeah: because it means they wouldn’t all be about YOU.”

Gonna keep a tally of messages I get from a) white feminists completely proving my point and b) people who think this comic proves feminism is worthless because I criticized one part of it. (Even despite me writing these words underneath the comic.) Then I’ll add them all up, see which column has more, and then drink myself to sleep either way.
Haha… this is why we can’t have nice things.

"One of the most durable paradoxes of white supremacy - the idea that those who are closest to an experience of oppression are its least credible witnesses."

Walter Johnson, Soul by soul: life inside the antebellum slave market
(via drapetomaniakkk)

This is the type of violence—from microaggressions to epistemic violence to emotional/physical violence to enslavement/genocide—that gets justified by asserting that the oppressor is “objective” and “logical” and thereby “credible.” As if there is objectivity in choosing to oppress. As if the emotions of entitlement, indifference, greed or hatred aren’t involved.

Congressman: Some Border Kids Are ‘Not Children’ 

privilegetoengtranslationservice:

blood-just-like-the-atlantic:

Holdon, I speak Old White Man. Let me translate.

"These kids are from places that have been ravaged by American via imperialism and ludicrous drug policies, and as such have been robbed of their childhood and innocence, are forced to grow up too fast and are forced out of their home countries, and therefore do not meet my standards of what it means to be a middle-class white American child, so let’s send them back into places where they may well be the victims of violence, because fuck ‘em."

An expert in one of the newer world languages—Old White Man—has thoughtfully translated this oration for us!

While we celebrated LGBT Pride in June, four trans women of color were murdered across the country.
What will we do to protect our sisters?

There is so much to laugh at in this gif. The kittens randomly falling off, the one who just sits there and lets the Roomba run into him and push him 8 inches across the floor…

There needs to be more cosplayers like this.

"That’s the worst Batman cosplay I’ve seen in my life!"
"BATman? Well that explains it"
"What?"
"Why he looks like he dressed in the dark!"
"D’OOHHHHOHOHOHOOO"
