HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!!!
happy international women’s day
Why isn’t there a white/Caucasian female? We’re supposed to be celebrating the endless and powerful spectrum of women all over the world.
Because not only do women of colour face oppression by men on a daily basis, they also face oppression by white people on a daily basis White women are very well represented in comparison to women of colour - they’ve had numerous TV shows that are white feminist-centric - eg Girls, Sex and the City and also movies like Mean Girls. A celebration of solely women of colour is necessary in order to empower us and bring us at least to the same status of white women.
Women of colour are not represented very well in white media, and are told to get their own shows but when they do get their own shows they’re told “wow, an all coloured show? isn’t that kinda racist???” In fact, white people make about only 30% of the world, meaning white women are 15% of the world’s population.
Basically what I’m trying to get at is if the white population represented women of colour better then we wouldn’t need a separate celebration of our achievements. But they don’t, so we do. It’s like that post about Mario Kart - you don’t get the blue shell if you’re already in first place. I’m sorry if this didn’t make sense, it’s 1:30 in the morning.
bless you for replying to this is a manner much better than i could have done.
to put it bluntly i’ve seen 12 different photosets celebrating international women’s day, this is the only one that doesn’t have a white woman on it, 9 of the others didn’t have a single non-white woman on them, 2 were mixed,
when 2/3rds of women are non-white and they only appeared on 1/3rd of these photosets, and only got 1/12th to themselves, shit is fucked up, that is not proportional representation
In addition, please do not refer to white women as Caucasian, as there are actually Caucasian people from Caucasus.
When you, as a white person, say, “But why are there no white people here? Why is this only POC?” you sound like Dudley Dursley asking why Harry gets one present all to himself at Christmas when Dudley has thirty-five of them stacked up behind him that he will never, ever share. That’s how childish you sound
Except, of course, for the part where some of the white people “presents” are and have been ownership of POC and murdering them and getting off scot free and structurally benefiting at their expense and so on and soforth. We white people have so fucking much, and we have done so fucking much horrible shit to people who aren’t white, and you want to complain because they get a fucking gifset all to themselves? Jesus fucking Christ, how petty can you be? (Not to mention racist.)

afrotuga and I visted Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium yesterday and it was great. All the cats (who are rescue cats) were so sweet and had perfect temperaments, loved the café food too. The staff were all really lovely too and the whole place had such a chill atmosphere.
This has only been the first week and they’re still working on improving stuff, but I thought it was great.
This cat café is the cutest.
As a MtF transgender woman, it is very important for me to have this surgery. However I cannot pay for it. The cost of blood tests, hormones, and medical visits and college are all consuming all the money I make. If you could help this college student out, I would really appreciate it. This is the one of the final major steps that I need to complete my transition- if you could help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.my cousin posted this on his facebook and she has only been donated $5 so I thought I should boost. please reblog, donate, or boost if you can. raising that money isn’t easy and she needs help!
Not cosplay related, but I think signal boosting here would be a good idea.

Shout out to the black girls who arent included in the usual “black is beautiful” mantra
The black girls who dont look like white girls “dipped in chocolate”
The ones whose natural hair black folks love to insult as “too nappy”
The ones who “black dont crack” didnt apply
The ones who didnt get the Hottentot Venus body we put on a pedestal.
Because you are valuable.
