The town I live in has a Facebook page run by a rich white dude who has lived in the community forever and he posted a picture of a black man who rides his bike around town and generally brings a smile to everyone’s face and called him a “mascot” of the community. Someone (a POC) commented and said that they think its racist and that they’re offended and now there are literally hundreds of white people commenting and telling them that they’re wrong and it isn’t racist and they need to stop getting offended about everything and I honestly think my head is going to fucking explode
Honestly can’t wait for the 50 shades movie to normalize the manipulation of lower-level female employees. Can’t wait for the new wave of “consent is sexy” banners on the cover of cosmo. Can’t wait for teen girls to think that a controlling relationship is romantic. Can’t wait for sexualized violence to become increasingly mainstream. And most of all, I can’t wait for BDSM to be labeled a feminist revolution.
Goddess bless the people who don’t say “so what have you been up to!” when you run into them for the first time in a very long time
