"Looking at the racist histories of the United States’ government and its legalized enforcers, we are presented with this question: why do we continue to seek justice from our oppressors? We must recognize that we are complicit in crafting the strength and legitimacy of police forces across the country each time we equate our ideas of justice with theirs… [O]ur collective allegiance to the penal and criminal justice system necessitates the police as enforcers of a racist, sexist, classist and violent society."

hajme:

white nb people have a really fucked up definition of what binarism is lol

binarism is a feature of colonialism and western imperialism in which poc (namely black people) are forced to conform with the white gender binary system

its not the invisibility of nonbinary people in society, thats just called nonbinary erasure (like refusing to use gender neutral pronouns, say stuff like “both genders” etc)

before colonialism came in and enslaved poc, they were already expressing their genders in ways that european white people didnt understand and forced them to identify as either man or woman and entirely erased the genders specific to those cultures, wiping out a large part of individualism and expression in poc societies


Seriously, the shit these colonialists did is never ending and everybody has to pay now for these fucking bastards deciding to be god awful eternal hellfire bastards.

"Society often blurs the lines between drag queens and trans women. This is highly problematic, because many people believe that, like drag queens, trans women go home, take off their wigs and chest plates, and walk around as men. Trans womanhood is not a performance or costume."

white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when

Notice how they are all just in the background too. It’s like this image of a superior white woman leading inferior people behind her. It’s really disgusting, I don’t understand how anyone at all can see this as acceptable.

White Heterosexuals in Love

Coming to theatres next spring, a love story that is vaguely forbidden between two kind of sarcastic, innocent cisgender people who grew up in middle class american families.

"

Most men never think about patriarchy—what it means, how it is created and sustained. Many men in our nation would not be able to spell the word or pronounce it correctly. The word “patriarchy” just is not a part of their normal everyday thought or speech. Men who have heard and know the word usually associate it with women’s liberation, with feminism, and therefore dismiss it as irrelevant to their own experiences. I have been standing at podiums talking about patriarchy for more than thirty years. It is a word I use daily, and men who hear me use it often ask me what I mean by it.

Nothing discounts the old antifeminist projection of men as all-powerful more than their basic ignorance of a major facet of the political system that shapes and informs male identity and sense of self from birth until death.
