total8 asked: Hi! i have two questions. im white and im planning on maybe taking a course at uni this fall thats about race and racist theories and ideologies and where they stem from (from an anti-racism perspective). im interested in this and want to learn as much as i can to be a better feminist and well a better person. is this alright or is it unappropriate for me to do so? and how about white people adopting children that arent white? not cause i want a "cute exotic black baby" or be some kinda
(cont.) not cause i want a “cute exotic black baby” or be some kinda White Savior, but cause i just dont wanna have kids the biological way and when your adopting, well it could be a child from any country and of any ethnicity. i have never read anything on white people adopting children of color so i dont know what poc think about this? im asking this in the most humble way i can and im sorry if ive said or asked anything shitty and inappropriate.
Ok, well, what I want to tell you is that it’s a good thing that you’re taking a course and race and racism. There’s nothing inappropriate about that. It’s important to learn about those things mostly so that you can take the things you learn from those courses back to other white people and call them on their racist bullshit.
As far as how POC feel about white people adopting children that aren’t white, unfortunately I can’t answer that for you as I am white. I suggest asking someone who is a POC who might be willing to answer that for you, or perhaps asking that question when you actually take that class on race and racism.
Or, if any of my followers have answers for you?
If you think that the nice guy ranting only happens on the internet, you’ve never had to deal with your thoroughly drunken friend shouting about how no girls would go out with a nice guy like him, even though he’s surrounded by single women he ignores because they aren’t attractive enough for him.
If you think guys getting pissy and escalating matters because you told people to stop making sex jokes is a feature of the internet, well, you’ve never asked anyone to stop making jokes that make you uncomfortable.
If you think that inappropriate comments and requests for sex are an internet thing, you’ve never tried to stop a coworker or boss from hitting on you repeatedly, or a head of security, or the guy at the convenience store across the street.
If you think that being shouted at and asked to show people your tits just because you present as a woman only happens in chat rooms and online games, you’ve never walked past a frat house, or, unfortunately, through the main thoroughfares of either university I’ve attended.
If you think unasked for commentary on a woman’s looks only happens because girls post pictures on internet forums (which probably means they’re asking for it), you’ve never been at a bus stop, or the city square, or a mall, or… well, anywhere, really.
If you think insecure men trying to drive women out of activism only happens in online male-dominated communities, you’ve never paid attention politics. Or Fox. Or CNN, sadly.
If you think the reaction to rape victims is bad on twitter, try sharing that experience in person. Or try even standing up for a rape victim. Count how many minutes until someone points out “but men can be falsely accused! The woman just changed her mind! You just can’t believe those drunk *insert varying level of insulting reference to gender*!”—
Anonymous asked: 1. You think men don't fear rejection/humiliation from women? We live in a society where we teach them to respect, nay, revere women. Where when a man hits a woman, he's seen as a monster, but when women do the same, no one cares. 2. Generalizing men as violent brutes so women look like delicate victims who can't even be fucking nice to people lest they fear for their lives. Classic feminism. Go look up stats on rape/DV after pulling your head outta that echo chamber of a rectum.
Oh look, they’re even having a mother’s day sale. Probably because of matriarchy.
