Imagine your favourite character invites you over to a place that has a piano. They sit down, seeming very serious, making you wonder what they might play and guessing it’ll be a classical piece, when suddenly, they start playing a piano version of “Talk Dirty” instead.
"Don’t say you hate your fam-" No.
"Omg you should love your fami-" No.
"Be grateful they’re your famil-" No.
If you have been bullied, hit, teased, put down, hurt, lied to, or hated by your own family; you don’t need to justify how you feel. You don’t need to explain yourself. You are allowed to hate a family member or dislike a family member if they’ve given you a reason to.
This is so fucking important.
There is no system of oppression in America that actively works to oppress and subjugate white people. Sorry to break it to you, but your individual suffering is just that, individual. The individuals acting against you do not have the institutionalized power to actively oppress you in every facet of your life, nor would their racism be upheld and supported by government, media, and legislation if they did. Because you’re white.
Reverse racism isn’t real because we live in a culture that supports and enforces whiteness as the norm and PoC as other. If you experience discrimination, prejudice, or bigotry, it’s valid to be upset about it and want to talk about it. It is not valid to claim that it is reverse racism, and certainly not valid to claim that it is racism on par with anything like the institutionalized racism that PoC will come into contact with."
"I’m tryna find the words to describe this girl without being disrespectful…
Damn, you’re a sexy bitch”
Shoutout to all the Scorpios who have to suffer through their horoscope readings because of Steve Carlsberg.
The thing that amuses me about Yowamushi Pedal is that I know a guy just like Sakamichi Onoda:
- kinda short
- short black hair
- anime otaku (who loves magical girls)
- ended up joining the cycling club after starting school here
Though our anime club is actually active, we’ve been making jokes about how he’s practically an anime character now.
