And the worst part is that the most annoying of them and the ones who complain the most are the ones that draw badly. It’s not a big deal that someone steals your art, get over it, deviantart users.
"It’s not a big deal that someone steals your art, get over it"
No, I’m not. Out of curiosity, what made you think that I was maybe? Haha.
im really surprised and a little stunned that someone replied to it thinking “transvestite” is a slur
Some parts of tumblr go a little overboard(?) When it comes to commonly used words to describe us. Not a bad thing but seeing as that type of reply is more an individual opinion than … a factual statement? It should’ve just been an internal thought, lol
If Barbie was an actual woman, she would be 5’9” tall, have a 39” bust, an 18” waist, 33” hips and a size 3 shoe.
• Barbie calls this a “full figure” and likes her weight at 110 lbs.
• At 5’9” tall and weighing 110 lbs, Barbie would have a BMI of 16.24 and fit the weight criteria for anorexia. She likely would not menstruate.
• If Barbie was a real woman, she’d have to walk on all fours due to her proportions.
• Slumber Party Barbie was introduced in 1965 and came with a bathroom scale permanently set at 110 lbs with a book entitled “How to Lose Weight” with directions inside stating simply “Don’t eat.”
i’m always reblogging this.
I’ve reblogged this a million times and will ALWAYS reblog it. She is so beautiful…It’s a great message.
I always reblog this when I see it on my dash.
“If Barbie was a real woman….”
well she’s not so stop passing off your insecurities on a fucking doll
if your kid is more influenced by a hunk of plastic than you then you’ve already fucked up as a parent and you might have to start saving money for a child psychologist (and maybe better parents)
I love how all these posts ignore the fact that Barbie has taught millions of girls that they can be anything they want to be. When I was a kid I didn’t care how Barbie looked, only that I could be a vet, or an artist, or a model, or a doctor, or a soldier, or a spy, or a fucking president.
If all you focus on is her body, you are missing they point of Barbie. The point of Barbie is in the slogan itself, “Be who you want to be.” That’s the message.
That’s the message you should teach your kids instead of telling them she’s too skinny or too big breasted, because that just show how much you don’t care about the potential only the physical attributes. It means you’re shallow and that attitude will damage your kid more than a Barbie in a pink dress with a stethoscope and white coat.
this only has 800 something notes and that is seriously fucking sad
SIGNAL BOOST THIS SHOULD HAVE MORE THAN A FEW FUCKING NOTES REBLOG UNTIL WE BREAK THE LIMIT
plz direct yrself to THIS post if you think that comics like this are necessary and that cisphobia is a pressing issue thank you
it’s not to do with whether or not cisphobia is a genuine problem it’s about not fucking bullying people
No one is perfectly safe here unless they happen to be a person who is practically every repressed minority possible who conforms to all of Tumblr’s ideals, and even then someone would find a problem with you. No matter where you go you won’t find a true safe haven. people will always find reasons to send people hate. opinions, lifestyle, physical looks…
Seriously, guys. Just because Majority groups seem to have it made doesn’t mean that they don’t face their own problems because of it. And you don’t support one group of people by putting down another group of people. If you do that then YOU are creating the problem.
Its OK to be *insert Gender identity*
Its OK to be *Insert Sexuality*
It’s OK to be *Insert skin color*
Its OK to be *Insert body type*
It’s OK to be from *Insert country*
It’s OK to be struggling with *Insert mental or physical problems*
It’s OK to be yourself
It is NOT ok to shame, harass, bully, etc. other people for being different than you or being something they have no control over.
Even if you think cisphobia doesn’t exist, there’s a lot of aggression put toward cispeople. And it’s also toward folks that pass as cis, as well.
It’s fucked up. I’m not cisgender (though I am 100% cis passing), and I find that this “cis scum” shit is a large and growing problem on tumblr.
This is what Mozart actually looks like. The image was found in a radio station in Belgium. Fact - the Moors (Black people) brought Classical Music to Europe.
Not only that but when you read the REAL bios of him, he’s described as having brown skin, “negroid features” (broad, wide nose, etc) and wiry hair. There was a post going around back in February that was very enlightening.
Wasn’t Beethoven part Moor (Black) too? There was a book written about his hair because Europeans were so transfixed with it!
Yes, Beethoven was Black.
Real history returns.
Peep this shit though <——— click that.
GET THE FCK OUTTA HERE. Naw cuhhhh. Nawwww. But…..but…..those names are so….Germanic. Sigh.
WhaaaaaaaaaatMozart’s physical appearance was described by tenor Michael Kelly, in his Reminiscences: “a remarkably small man, very thin and pale, with a profusion of fine, fair hair of which he was rather vain”. As his early biographer Niemetschek wrote, “there was nothing special about [his] physique. […] He was small and his countenance, except for his large intense eyes, gave no signs of his genius.” His facial complexion was pitted, a reminder of his childhood case of smallpox. There is a photofit of Mozart, created from four contemporary portraits.
Even his childhood portrait, painted in 1763 on commission from Mozart’s father, depicts him as white:
This didn’t even take five minutes of searching. You people are so fucking full of shit it would be hilarious if it wasn’t so goddamned pathetic.
This shit has over 17,000 notes, too. There really is no hope for tumblr. Misinformation here spreads faster than a California wildfire in a gasoline-soaked forest.
A Staten Island man died Thursday after police placed him in a chokehold as they attempted to arrest him for selling untaxed cigarettes.
According to authorities, Eric Garner, 43, went into cardiac arrest and died at Richmond University Medical Center following the arrest that was filmed by several witnesses.
In the video, Eric can be seen telling police that he had not been selling cigarettes, repeatedly saying, ” I didn’t sell anything,” before insisting, “I’m minding my own business, please leave me alone.”
After a standoff, five officers tackled the 400-pound asthmatic Eric — with one placing him in a chokehold – and wrestled him to the ground as they attempted to put handcuffs on him.
As Eric lay on the ground, with one officer pushing his head into the pavement, he can be heard saying, “I can’t breath. I can’t breath,” over and over.
As the video ends, Eric appears to be unconscious as police clear onlookers while waiting awaiting paramedics.
According to his family, Eric, a married father with six children and two grandchildren, suffered from asthma.
“When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Eric’s wife, Esaw, told reporters.
Police stated that Eric has been arrested multiple times for selling untaxed cigarettes, and records show he was due in court in October on three charges, including pot possession and selling untaxed cigarettes.
Witnesses at the scene claim Eric was breaking up a fight when police arrived, with Eric’s family stating that he didn’t have any cigarettes on him or in his car at the time of his death.
“They’re covering their asses; he was breaking up a fight. They harassed and harassed my husband until they killed him,” Eric’s wife said.
Within hours after Eric’s arrest and death, residents in the area hung handwritten posters on telephone poles near the scene with phrases like “no justice, no peace” and “Another innocent black man has been killed by police brutality. The NYPD must be stopped!”
Sure, I think there are feminists out there with integrity. However I think the overall attitude of the movement is to eject those people because they conflict with what modern feminism is pushing which is misinformation, intellectual dishonesty, censorship, and fear mongering. It’s why feminists can’t stand women like Christina Hoff Sommers.
There are countless people just on Tumblr alone that have experienced the rather hostile and toxic nature of the mainstream feminist attitude that even those who identified as feminists before have decided to identify as egalitarians or anti-feminists instead but still maintain their support for human rights. I was once a feminist and it just seemed like the right thing to be because I had been told all my life that women were victims and men were victimizers. I understand why someone would want to be a feminist if they didn’t know any better but there are tons of people who in the face of the most comprehensive wall of facts disproving their argument will still vehemently defend feminism, parroting the same old debunked feminist biased statistics and studies. Sadly, it appears that these people have the loudest voices and make up the majority of the movement influencing sociopolitical issues and demonizing their critics as nothing but misogynists and rape apologists.
Now, I know how people like to romanticize the beginning of feminism as pure and fighting for the rights of all people but the truth is that the movement was started by upper-class white women for upper-class white women. In fact, black women were excluded from the suffrage movement due to the realization by white leaders that excluding them would gain them greater support. Black women weren’t even fully allowed to vote when the 19th Amendment was passed and had many problems voting up until the late 60s. Here is an excerpt from a post I made a while back dealing with the racism of the feminist movement:
According to Louise Michele Newman’s book, White Women’s Rights: The Racial Origins of Feminism in the United States, she writes:
"In the decades from 1870 to 1920, however, despite moments of interracial cooperation, the woman’s movement remained largely segregated. Many white leaders dismissed the concerns of black women—such as miscegenation, interracial rape, lynching, and their admittance to the all-women cars on the Pullman trains—as ‘race questions’, irrelevant to the woman movement’s foremost goal of ‘political equality of women.’ For instance, Alice Paul, president of the National Woman’s Party, refused to allow Addie Hunton, a black field secretary for the NAACP, to address the National Woman’s Party in 1921 about the disenfranchisement of southern black women, because Paul considered it more appropriate for this problem to be taken up by a racial rather than a feminist organization. The refusal of white reformers to address black women’s specific experiences of gender oppression meant that the white woman’s movement would remain mostly white, even when individual women of color were invited to become members of white-dominated women’s groups.
Anthony’s way to respond to the political complexities of black women’s intersecting oppressions of race, class, and gender was to slot black women into norms and roles delineated for white women. In 1900, for example, she urged the National Negro Race Conference to ‘include women of color,’ arguing that ever since the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments recognized black men as citizens, ‘from that hour [on] the colored wife owed service to a husband instead of to a slave-owner, so that legally she simply exchanged a white master for a colored one who controlled her earnings, her children and her person.’ Anthony was adopting the decades-old argument that white women had used to articulate their criticism of patriarchy, an argument they created in the 1840s to validate their own sense of subjection to husbands by comparing their suffering to that of slaves. Black women, however, rarely formulated such arguments in expressing their resistance to political oppression, since they generally considered black men their allies and protectors against a racist culture. Most black women supported the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments, which they considered advantageous to the black race as a whole and thus to themselves, even though their own rights to citizenship went unaffirmed.
Instead, black women protested the ways in which white culture sexualized and victimized them, exposing the unstated but implicit racism in the ideology of true womanhood, which stigmatized women of color as incapable of chastity, purity, and moral virtue. Finding that white women’s organizations often refused to take action on their behalf, black women formed national organizations of their own, such as the National Association of Colored Women and National Council of Negro Women, in which they worked to gain for themselves the respect, safety, and physical freedom that society routinely accorded white middle-class women.”
In fact, many black women resented feminism, even today. The term “womanism” arose during the early Feminist Movement, which was mainly led by middle-class white women advocating for social change in the form of women’s suffrage. While the Feminist Movement focused on ending gender-based oppression, it largely ignored race and class-based oppression. Linda Hogan asserts that the term “womanist” has come to represent a feminist of color, since the Feminist Movement has been experienced by many as intrinsically racist.
I have yet to meet a feminist who acknowledges this part of their history, probably because it’s embarrassing and is contrary to the belief that the suffrage and feminist movements were pristine, fighting for the rights of men and woman of all colors and sexual orientations. In reality, the picture is not so clean.
Feminism may have helped in some ways but only in the interests of straight white upper-class women first. So even if people want to claim that the radical attitude of today’s feminist third wave strays far from what it began as — the truth is that it’s all the same bullshit, just different piles.
