And “bitch” is attacking women for their right to call you on it (via creatingaquietmind)
Seriously, every single time I see this floating around without commentary I’m gonna reblog it with the needed intersectional points. IT ONLY WORKS THIS WAY FOR WHITE WOMEN (and even more pointedly for cis hetero white women who aren’t poor)! The “purity” of upper and middle class cis het white women was created and only existed on the back of an inherent lack of purity in Women of Color, poor women, and women who deviated from cis het normativity. All Women of Color, poor women, and women who aren’t actively heteronormative automatically got and get assumed to be filthy slutty whores as their inherent default no matter what. There’s no opportunity for them to ever be “pure.” The fact that upper and middle class cis het white women have had the opportunity to even have a “right to say yes” for which they can be deemed sluts is because everyone else who deviated from the social norms were already ruined beyond hope from birth. Being able to choose to be a slut, to choose to take actions that would get you labeled as a slut instead of just being assumed to be a slut no matter what you do or do not do is a massive privilege of whiteness, wealth, and heteronormativity.
TL;DR STOP ACTING LIKE ALL WOMEN ARE THE SAME AND HAVE/HAVE HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCES!
blah. tired of dudes arguing this nerd - jock dichotomy. there are more archetypes of dudes in high school stories than that.
Also, it’s totally not cool for…
|white person:||*looks at news story of klan burning down black babies, watches documentary about genocide, picks up history book and learns about slavery*|
|white person:||the most meaningful thing I can say about this is, we're not all like that.|
|poc:||excuse me b-|
|white person:||shut up, I said WE'RE NOT ALL LIKE THAT NOW SHUT THE FUCK UP END OF STORY OKAY|
The Refutation of “Good Hair” is a powerful new project by the brilliant Nakeya B. In this series, Nakeya has chosen to explore the literal meaning of the historically used phrase “good hair”. In her own words, “In each image a woman of color is seen poised upright while consuming a handful of hair. Accompanying the portraits are a selection still life arrangements placing hair and traditional African-American cuisine in the same setting. Doing such suggests “good hair” is nothing more than something to be consumed as if it were food”.
