haikumoon, I’m 3/4 the way to level 44, and I have 118,542 gold.
Loling from when I had 6k and you were appalled.
Jenassa’s so deep. I’m mining and she’s commenting on how the poor man mines to sell gems to the rich man.
Sometimes I think it’s okay to just admit that you like looking at certain kinds of people naked and that’s okay.
I have had the less friendly iteration of this message bouncing around in my head all week. Thank you Cube!!!!
Huh, I thought this was a satire on how some male writers and artists will claim that their female character is feminist but are in fact drawing for themselves and not as a character per say.
^^^ That’s what I was thinking too.
Or casting and writing for themselves.
Just let this sink in for a bit. #ferguson

"….an unarmed BLACK 18 year old six times".
Because Mike Brown being black is why the officer is getting so much support.
Since when I look around at the groups of friends around me, they more or less bunch off according to race. (Whites, asians, jocks (I know this is not a race), mainly). It just seems easier to make everyone white, why is that a bad thing? (2/2)
These will tell you why it is a problem that white people are the default and why representation is important:

Reasons why I have never and will never turn on anon, #5,409.
Anyhow these are all great resources on race and representation, and why it’s very, very important (if it wasn’t already obvious from the anon ask).
White is the ‘default’ race? … yeah, maybe it seems that way to you because you’re white and everything in the world is made to cater to you.
But there is no ‘default’ race. That’s like saying there’s one race that’s ‘normal’ and the rest are only necessary as ‘extra.’ This post reads as insinuating that white people are more deserving of being represented somehow.
When people make even ONE character in a work of fiction black, white people are like IDK I JUST CAN’T SEE THEM AS BLACK I CAN’T RELATE TO THIS CHARACTER…
Think about how people of color feel when EVERYTHING that is made for the general public is whitewashed and they have to go out of their way to go to specific magazines, TV networks, radio stations, etc. just to see people who look like them or to have their own culture and heritage represented accurately and respectfully.
People who go into an uproar about one character not being white and then can’t even mildly empathize or even sympathize with people of color after having this specifically pointed out to them baffle me.
I googled ‘knockoff mcdonalds’ and was not disappointed
The upside down M makes it look like a Satanic symbol.
Ugh my former manager is commenting on something I posted about being worried about interviewing because I’m likely going to have to disclose that I’m trans…
And she’s like YOU DON’T HAVE TO JUSTIFY YOUR GENDER IDENTITY TO ANYONE. No, I shouldn’t have to, but I probably will or else be called female pronouns or have people be confused.
She’s also asserting that I wasn’t dressed very femininely to my interview. No, but I was wearing a top clearly made for women and wasn’t wearing a polo or a tie. I’ve tried going to interviews in ties on numerous occasions and have NEVER been hired when I presented in masculine attire.
And she’s saying WELL IF THEY CARE ABOUT YOUR GENDER IDENTITY YOU DON’T WANT TO WORK FOR THEM ANYWAY.
Well yeah, but if enough places that I interview for are confused or prejudiced during the hiring process, then I’m going to continue being jobless and not having money.
It’s a problem and she’s trying to explain it away??
Which is weird because she was the only person to call me by my preferred name and pronouns at my old job unquestioningly and without making me feel uncomfortable or have to explain myself. Idk. I guess even though she was great she still doesn’t get that people are fucked up and institutions are fucked up. And not understanding that when I’m explaining it to her makes her a part of the problem.I literally mentioned that she was the ONLY person at that job that I disclosed my trans status to who DIDN’T ask Mr uncomfortable questions or make a big deal about it. And she still didn’t get it.
