A quick note on the n-word:
strangeasanjles: ethiopienne: If you were never a “nigger,” you should not be saying “nigga.” The word is not yours to reclaim, police/denounce (unless you hear other non-Black people using it), subvert, etc. It’s just not. Stop trying to paint on battle scars from wounds you’ve never had. The most brilliantly succinct explanation of this point I’ve ever read.

The United States of America on college education
Student: I'm not going to go to college because I don't want to go into debt.
USA: YOU USELESS PIECE OF SHIT. YOU'RE GOING TO AMOUNT TO NOTHING YOU FUCKING SCUMBAG. YOU'RE THE REASON WHY MY TAXES ARE SO HIGH.
Student: I'm just going to attend a small community college instead.
USA: HAHAHA YOU WERE TOO STUPID TO GET INTO A GOOD UNIVERSITY. ENJOY YOUR MCDONALD'S DIPLOMA.
Student: I attended a four year university and received a diploma in a field I am interested in. Now I am $50,000+ in debt.
USA: YOU DUMBASS. WHY THE FUCK DID YOU GO TO COLLEGE WHEN YOU KNOW YOU COULDN'T AFFORD IT? YOU DIDN'T EVEN CHOOSE A USEFUL MAJOR EITHER. GOD PEOPLE LIKE YOU MAKE ME SICK.
When POC characters are turned white: this isin't about race, if you think it is then you're the racist one, lets just enjoy the book/film as it is, this is about the character's personality god you're so sensitive, the new skin tone actually fits the character's personality IMO, I never imagined them as POC anyway, not all whitewashing is racist god get over it!!111
When white characters are turned into POC: omg how could they!?!?!? this is soooo racist and unfair! why cant they present that white character as WHITE, how dare they change the original skin color to suit their own terms! this is reverse racism!! this is about race! I NEVER imaged that white character to be a POC that is so weird, it doesn't fit, this is political correctness gone crazy!!
When POC characters stay POC but readers/viewers imagined them as white: THIS IS SO WRONG. This isn't how they looked. i don't care what it says in the booooook because i imagined they lookd different. ugh the film is ruined now. Ruined.

deltumbles: spacew0man: princess-scarlett-marie: uncutting: lezgirlsrock: If you search for “Penis” on safe search, you get over 254,000,000 results. Because, clearly, the legitimate medical term for a woman’s anatomy is dirty and “unsafe.” Oh wow. For shame, Google.
