(maybe there’s a happy medium, though, between overdosing on fan joy/intelligence/beauty and being scared away by pages and pages unread)
A couple of cleaning businesses where I am seem to have a sense of humour about masculinity… I saw one ad that said to “call for the hunks”. And another for a number of services, including rooftop cleaning, by “men in kilts”.
one thing we can all agree on is how awesome it would have been if they had made both watson and sherlock female
yes poc can appropriate too.
look up b-style in japan. because you know black style is static! only fashion trend that black people are involved in is hip-hop -_-
wtf do you think is happening when a kpop artists willing shits on black folk then get up on stage and bust out a rhyme?
and as much as i love 2NE1 side-eying the fuck out of them for that fire (space version) music video. deadass Dara? throwing on a sari and dancing to a generic indian melody?
domt worry i blame the shitty american media for forcefeeding other countries warped imagery.
And don’t forget the T-ara Ya Ya Ya MV where they were dressed up in faux Native garbs and hunted a dude, while doing a dance move that pats their hands over their mouths as they sing “Ya Ya Ya Ya!” and shit.
Oh, and B.A.P (who I have dubbed Black Appropriation People) who mother fucking stepped, STEPPED, on stage. And it wasn’t even a good step; most of the beats came from the song, and yet Kpop fans of all races shit their pants over it. Not to mention the general illusion of gun violence in the dance and MV for Warrior, even ganging up and pretending to shoot their youngest member at the end; something that would be “look at those violent niggers that can’t even do a MV without shooting someone” if a black hip hop artist did that.
Oh, and I have a link to something about the b-style. This dumbass Japanese girl was like “one day, my hair got frizzy.” And for some reason, that meant she should tan hardcore and dress like a “black” girl. CUZ OUR HAIR IS JUST FRIZZY GUYS. THAT’S ALL IT IS. IT’S JUST FRIZZY.
Asians appropriating blackness is a huge issue. HUGE.
absolutely no problem with east Asians enjoying and making their own hip-hop, music is fkr everybody imo. but the anti-blackness is a legit problem, only way they can lift our music amd style while shitting on black folk
Yeah, I’d like to see the Asians who talk about the cultural appropriation also talk about how fucked up it is when Asians appropriate black culture.
I mean, we know its not about appreciation, and we know its not a “fond tribute”, or whatever bullshit we might want to dress up K-pop’s antiblackness, or b-style in Japan.
We know because we laugh when white people try to defend their essentialization and exotification of us with those kinds of weak-ass arguments.
We shouldn’t play the same game.
rarely ever see this called out, especially by east asians who are often some of the worst fucking offenders
legitimate criticisms of feminism:
-transmisogyny and the lack of inclusion of transwomen
-the racist history behind it and the lack of inclusion of woc
-ignoring and invalidating women with disabilities
-pretty much anything that falls under lack of intersectionality
-internalized misogyny and girl hate
illegitimate criticisms of feminism:
-a feminist was really mean to me once
-they’re sexist against men
The comics world lost a pioneer last week with the passing of artist Tony DeZuniga, who died in the Philippines from complications from a stroke. DeZuniga is best known for being the co-creator of DC Comics characters Black Orchid and Jonah Hex.
DeZuniga’s association with Hex would span almost four decades: 38 years after introducing the character in All-Star Western in 1972, DeZuniga returned to draw Hex for a stand-alone graphic novel, Jonah Hex: No Way Back.
DeZuniga began working as an artist in his native Philippines as a teenager in the 1950s, during the country’s boom period for comics (or Komics, as they were called). In the early 1960s he moved to New York to study graphic design and advertising, a career he would pursue for a few years before returning to the U.S. toward the end of the decade and earning art assignments from DC editor Joe Orlando. DeZuniga became the first Filipino artist to break into the American comics market.
But more importantly, DeZuniga made sure he wasn’t the last to do so…” —Arturo García’s obit on DeZuniga is on the R today. (via racialicious)
Wait, why the fuck are people reading 50 Shades of Grey? This is not shit we want to be encouraging of the publishing industry.
Expect a long rant because I am so angry that I have cried and screamed and I need to channel my anger into something productive. Like Tumblr.
But I think I really need to talk about why it is totally and completely wrong that a WHITE actor like Liam is cast as an obviously ethnic character.
It’s so funny they have no problem casting Arabs as the baddies in many films but when they are the heroes nope sorry they need to be white.
The Persians in 300 were fucking demons and then in Prince of Persia you have Whitey McWhiterson Jake Gyllenhaal
