This is why 4chan raided Tumblr, nobody likes Tumblr feminists, NO ONE.
i can’t believe people eat this shit up like it’s real
people can just type up the wildest fake “SJW” text they can think of and it just travels infinitely around communities desperate enough to get their anti-SJW rocks off that they’ll jump at the chance to attack this fake ass manufactured SJW strawman garbage
you’re thinking “damn i’m the strongest tiger in the zoo, let this be a lesson that i will catch and kill every rabbit that dares to encroach upon my domain” meanwhile everyone else is laughing watching you rip apart a stuffed animal because you can’t tell the difference
"this is why 4chan raided Tumblr" no, this is a picture of 4chan raiding tumblr
R.I.P to all the friendships where we acted like lovers at some point, and now we barely talk.
did some research, and gave it a second try!
i matched the image of a sari to an EAH silhouette, since cupcake dresses show up a LOT in eah
nah but like
if you are the person who adds shitty “tumblr won’t care about this because it happened to a man” type comments on things
you are a terrible person
like you are literally using that person’s suffering to take a jab at a group of people (who actually probably do care)
you are the person who doesn’t actually care
Omfg Melody, I love you for pointing it out. If you ask me, she also does look pretty tanned. From all we know she could be multiracial. And what does it matter if a white girl wears a bindi? I think it looks pretty on her.
Because the brown people who invented bindi and wear it to express their culture are murdered, raped, denied jobs, spit on, attacked, ridiculed, etc. for it. Meanwhile, white women who wear bindi stripped of its cultural significance are hailed as “trendy” and even said to “wear it better”.
Like, look up the term “cultural appropriation” if you have time. Just because non-white jewelry looks good on white people (and that’s a rather subjective matter) doesn’t mean they should wear it.
As far as representation is concerned, I do hope you understand how off it is when a story refuses to include characters not up to Eurocentric standards but for a tokenistic handful, but does eagerly includes the inventions of the people left out.
the fact that someone could have no idea why it would be a ‘big deal’ for a non indian person to wear something important to their heritage says EVERYTHING I’ll ever need to know about you. This isn’t the 90s & Gwen Stefani - everyone should know definitely know better by now.
lets play a game called ‘find a shade that would suitably match an African American or any person of any color different than white’. Very tired of white washing.
while there’s obviously a couple of shades for POC up here. there’s so so so so much whiteness. no one needs to wear make-up but anyone who wants to should have the option.
And even those that would work for POC are still on the light end.
Another thing I’ve noticed, which might be a microaggression, is that a lot of the darker skintones have food related names. The lighter shades will be stuff like beige, ivory, and nude (don’t get me started on the word nude), but the darker shades will be honey, chocolate, cocoa, caramel, etc.
If I wanted a caramel machiatto, I’d have just gone to Starbucks.
Sorry but I lol’ed, and you are very correct. Our shades usually have some sort of food attached to them, its annoying. They can take the time to find all these different names for beige but they can’t come up with a few names for brown?! Like maybe sienna, sepia, mahogany, bronze, sable…we come in a variety of brown shades and there are many ways to describe our skin tone without calling us chocolate or cafe au lait.
If you can find something darker than a Werther’s candy in the store, I’ll kiss you right on the mouth.
Because unless you go to a drugstore and they carry Iman, Black Radiance, or Cover Girl’s Queen Collection, you not gonna find shit for dark-skinned girls. Ever.
The best you can hope for is a nice eyeshadow quad, eyeliner, mascara, lashes, and lipstick.
