Laverne Cox has always been a fav of mine, but what she is supporting is so past problematic. 

Leap off that bandwagon Laverne!!!!!

Text 27 Aug 221 notes Laverne Cox removed video of Cox supporting a convicted murder and rapist to have SRS and be moved to a women’s prison. Here’s a download of the video and an archive of the transcript.

Because it’s still happening, i’m making this post

STOP USING THAT MILKY WASHED OUT PSD ON PEOPLE WITH OLIVE/BROWN/DARK SKIN

not only is it ugly anyway, but it lightens skintone, and that’s obviously a problem. that psd is only made for pale people and it’s meant to only compliment pale people - do not use it on brown/black! this is a problem not only found in the 5h fandom, but all around tumblr as well. you need to understand that whitewashing poc is wrong and if you honestly don’t know why please google it.

don’t be afraid of vibrance and high saturation, it doesn’t matter if it was a 2011 trend or w/e, it looks better than those milky psds. use more yellows and reds in your curves - brighten your colors!

i’ve made two things to help people edit less like this and here are the links:

tutorial on coloring edits with dark skinned people

psd that doesn’t lighten dark skinned people

if you want another psd or tutorial you can request me, i’ll do it

JUST STOP USING THAT UGLY MILKY WASHED OUT PSD

Y’all remember that time when I told these roleplay helpers to stop whitewashing people of color’s skin when they make edits, and lost some friends over it? Yep.

Yo, genderists.

Let me give you a laywoman’s introduction to the concept of root words, specifically in reference to the word you made up “transmisogynist”.

"Miso-/mis-/misia-" is Greek for hate, hater, hatred, disgust for

"Gyn-" is Greek for woman

Therefore, when you concocted the word “transmisogynist” you accidentally created a word that describes trans hatred for women.  The word you’re looking for is misotransgynist.

Thank you.

I am laughing so hard.

Oops.

Namibia:

So many tourists do this with little to no interaction with the people they’re posing with.  To them, these Himba women are so odd and strange (I’ve read a substantial number of travel posts/personal blogs that attest to this) that their humanity is not apparent.  Sadly, it is not just White people, but anyone and everyone so Westernized that to them, the Himba are simple artifacts of Namibia not unlike the wild safari. 

There are of course photos that exhibit some interaction (read: the Himba/s in the shot are smiling at least), and I know the Himba are open to meeting other people and interacting with tourists.  But they are not always treated like human beings with expectations of privacy and dignity.

Their rejection of western culture is not why the Himba people receive this treatment.  Let’s be clear about that.  It is because of their lack of proximity to white supremacy.  Being non-European is an oddity that must either be ogled or exterminated, whether you’re in Namibia or the US, whether you’re bare-chested in Windhoek or walking down the street in Ferguson, Missouri.  Not even money and fame can protect you from the standard shame of being Black.

Being Black is treated as a situation one only employs away from “civilization”, even in Africa.  Our existence is not accepted in the current world as is as this video shows.  A Himba man must fold and stash his culture (read: soul) away in order to shine outside and he is lauded as “exceptional”.
