So, for those of you who are unaware, tomorrow marks the start of Black History Month. I am so not looking forward to this. Since this year is a leap year, I have 29 of whitewashed history and white people complaints and tears to look forward to. Hip hip hoo-fucking-ray. I fucking hate Black History Month with a god damn passion.
In school, it was nothing but a fucking joke. The history teacher would pull out a specialized lesson plan for a few weeks. We would do reports on the same few people and hear the same bullshit stories. If you were lucky, you might have watched a movie.
The media is even worse. McDonald’s has that “Black History 365” campaign that you suspiciously only see in February. The Disney channel will play the movie “The Color of Friendship”. Trust me, it will happen. February is the only time during the year you will see that movie. There will be more commercials featuring Black people, someone will show “The Color Purple”, and bullshit campaigns will come out of the woodwork saying they want to “help the Black community”.
I’m expecting twitter and tumblr to be out of fucking control when it comes to white whine. “Anti-racists” will misquote Martin Luther King Jr. in an attempt to show how “not racist” they are. White liberals will try to teach Black people about Black history. The “pro-life” community will go out of their fucking minds talking about “Black genocide”. White hipsters will complain about there being no W.E.T. and not being able to say n***er. Someone will (inevitably) pull out the black-face and say they “were only trying to honor our culture”. Last, but not least, someone will wave around a confederate flag while screaming “heritage not hate” and “why can’t I be proud to be white”.
I love Black history. Real Black history is a thing of beauty. When you learn about what Black people really had to face, you see that it’s a damn near miracle that we’re still in this country and surviving. The whitewashing that goes down during Black History Month is a damn shame. It’s not bad enough that we have the shortest fucking month of the year, but you have to dilute our history too???
I just want this to be over already. If you’re Black in America, February is probably not a good month for you.
go to the mantra of “objectification”, and all that when someone talks about porn? While I’m not defending porn per se, since I don’t have a stake in it, but why are women so anti-porn? Because it objectifies women? It seems that people who chant as the opposition seem to forget that the women (as well as the men) in porn are willingly there. They signed up, they understand what porn is (hello - they are intelligent people who are fully aware of what pornography is about), and choose to be in it. If that’s the case, and it is, then why would anyone bitch and moan about how it’s degrading, etc?
Now while I have my own opinions on what’s degrading, etc, it just seems a bit one-sided. Men aren’t kidnapping women, drugging them with mind-control drugs, and putting them on camera having intercourse with another person. While I’m sure drugs are quite present in porn (as they are just about anywhere in the world - since porn isn’t synonymous with drugs), they are also present in the world in general.
Why are men never a victim of porn? Why are they never looked upon as a victim? If everyone is on camera fucking - then how are both people not victims (given that it’s an objectification of people in a sexual manner)? Are gay men victims more than straight men? Is it because men are the ones in a dominant position? How about when women are in a dominant position or situation? Are they less of a victim since they’re in control? Do you see the idiocy of the initial claim of degrading to only one party?
There’s a great saying - if you don’t want to be treated like a victim, stop acting like one.
Because bukkake just isn’t that empowering.
I could point out everything that’s wrong with this but I’m being lazy.
The fact that the majority of teenagers would rather listen to Justin Bieber or Taylor Momsen over Jimi Hendrix or Pink Floyd makes me want to fucking kill myself. Literally.
up next on MTV’s “White Girl Problems”: special snowflake and part-time tumblr user felicefawn is literally contemplating suicide over people having different music taste than her and thinks she is better than everybody else because she kinda sorta knows who jimi hendrix and pink floyd are
