It was actually a huge disappointment for me, when I came of age and realized that I was sexually attracted to men. So when my sister came out, I thought, Thank God, someone in this family can truly represent my passions and beliefs.” - lena dunham

amazing.

Wow. Objectifying her own sister. That’s… wow.

And then in the article she basically has an “I’m not racist but…” moment about stereotyping gays. Bravo.

Anti-Gay Baker Brought To Tears Over Bakery Closing

lejacquelope:

Just think, folks… thanks to modern technology it is possible to build a violin small enough to be worthy of this story!

1. It isn’t like they’re a big business, it was a personal venture and she should retain the right to refuse service to whomever she wishes. So the law suit is quite frankly disgusting. ESPECIALLY in a country where religious freedom is apparently a human right (remember, she didn’t harm this couple in any way - they could easily have got someone else to make the cake, all she did was refuse her service). It’s like if prostitution was legal and a straight prostitute was taken to court for refusing sex with a woman. 
2. Harrassment for the sake of harrassment is just spiteful and disgusting. I doubt they thought harrassing this woman might open her up to accepting gay people. All they’ve done is cement her in her views and probably further cemented a lot of people who may’ve been starting to change their opinions.

I may severely dislike religion and bigotry, but responding to someone refusing to perform a service by harrassing her, her customer base, etc, to the point that her livelihood is essentially ruined… is quite frankly inhumane.

"My boyfriend/girlfriend won’t let me"
Excuse me
What was that?
LET ?
YOU ¿ 
How lovely congratulations on your 3rd parental guardian”

THIS

But seriously if your partner won’t let you do something (eg, hang out with your friends)? That’s actually a GIANT RED FLAG for an abusive relationship, please get help or get out of there.

Remember this isn’t 100% applicable, though. For example, if you’re generally a polygamous person but you’re in a relationship with a monogamous person, it’s not abusive for that person to not allow you to pursue polygamous relations.

That’s just one example (and my head hurts way too much to think past the first idea that comes to my head) but I think you get the idea.

Like everything it needs to be looked at on a case-by-case basis. On the whole though, yeah, it’s a very big problem and it’s terrible how people don’t seem to realise when they’re in abusive relationships.

Student Suspended for Speaking Native American Language

When Miranda was teaching a classmate to say “posoh” and “ketapanen” on January 19, her teacher scolded her. Native News Network reported her saying “You are not to speak like that! How do I know you’re not saying something bad? How would you like it if I spoke in Polish and you didn’t understand?”
The words Miranda was chastised for translate to “hello” and “I love you” in Menominee.


old news, but still gross

And THIS shows you why most Native American languages are either extinct or endangered.

#this is why you dont get to wear a headdress hipsters

I get the teacher’s point, but she’s an idiot. Let’s be honest, though. If you were living in Germany for instance it’d be rude as fuck to speak English in public because people would feel like you were saying things that you didn’t want them to hear (and thus they must be negative). Hell, I bet if the teacher muttered in Polish under her breath/to another teacher, the kids would’ve immediately thought she was cursing at them.It’s got nothing to do with hating Native Americans like some posters seem to think. Or, even if this one instance does, there’s actual reasoning behind it that isn’t blatant bigotry. It was a definite over reaction on the teacher’s part to suspend the girl, but her reasoning isn’t exactly flawed and it doesn’t “reek of bigotry” like some posters seem to think.

Cause it wasn’t no 18 year old boy raping a 15 year old but a woman that shit gonna be fucking over looked. An admitted rapist is going to get away with no backlash cause she’s a woman.

sickhypnotik is an admitted rapist and making a joke of the entire…

There is a serious point in here, though. There’d need to be serious fighting to get this case looked at (assuming anyone would bother even if the minor himself reported it), but if the genders were reversed a simple anonymous tip would have the guy in jail.

I don’t think this post should be about jailing the girl (assuming it was all consensual, I know jack shit about her so I won’t assume anything), but more about how the law seriously needs a re-write.

Although I guarantee you feminists would fight to keep females as victims because “men manipulate them into sex” and women should never have to consider the consequences of their actions.

I think that if they make abortion illegal, they should make men deserting women who they got pregnant illegal as well. Because if a women can’t back out of pregnancy a man shouldn’t be able to either.

It’s funny because men can’t back out of pregnancy even though women can.

Ignorance, thy name is tumblr.

I’ve seen some posts making this guilt trip of how the people who like to dress up as a sugar skull or the Catrina for halloween or whatever is racist and cultural appropriation.

Nah, it’s completely fine, as long as you are not totally ignorant about it or disrespectful.

Sugar skull represents the deceased, in a joyful manner. And the Catrina is just a social critic which became an icon later on for the day of the dead and Mexico. 

It is not offensive to turn this into a costume or an accessory because it already is, so if you want to dress up like sugar skulls on Halloween, do so, but atleast know it’s value.

Be open minded, don’t even hate, and share this rich culture we have with the rest of humanity, chill.

This post is about that eradicating guilt trip and blaming, and turn it into self awareness

I gotta admit, I am hugely inspired by the Day of the Dead, and imagery from it turned up a lot in my art, and tumblr made me stop referencing it for quite some time.

Now I can go back to drawing La Catrina to my heart’s content 

No. That is not how this works.

This whole post is a “I don’t want to upset the whites so here lemme just give the history of this cultural practice and pretend that’s enough education for you to be ‘allowed’ to use this imagery.”

You don’t get to pick and choose who you listen to. There are countless Mexican bloggers and descendants that have tried to preserve their culture in America explaining why white people taking this shit from us is hurtful but OH the one post you happen to agree with is what you’re actually going to listen to?

Fuck you.

"Fuck you!  You don’t get to decide what’s best for Mexico, ONLY I DO!!!!  You don’t get to pick and choose who you listen to!  Now disregard all the Mexicans that say this is fine and only listen to the ones that are offended!!!!"

Fine, but no more European clothing for La Catrina, if you want to play that card.   Unless bustle dresses are somehow sacred ancient Mexican traditions.

By the way,. is this only an issue when whites do it?  Does this mean black and asian people are free to wear sugar skull makeup?   

 But remember, it’s (conveniently) only wrong when it’s done to a minority. So it’s entirely fine for them to dress in Western/European clothing.

They act as if people are going to forget that these things originated in Mexico (actually since a lot of the traditions originated from European shit like the Spanish technique and the clothing, you could make the argument it’s just as much white culture - definitely the sugar skulls, at least). Regardless, people ain’t gonna forget that.
