"If more girls wanted to be scientists, there would be more female scientists"
*takes a deep breath* WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT ACTIVELY DISCOURAGES FEMALE INTELLIGENCE BY PAINTING IT AS A NON FEMININE TRAIT AND SETS UP MALES TO BE IN POSITIONS OF ACADEMIC SUPERIORITY DESPITE THERE BEING NO CORRELATION BETWEEN GENDER AND ACADEMIC ABILITY thank you for your time
why is it ok for white people to define the standards of beauty, but whenever a black women even begins to love her natural hair it’s considered “exclusive” or “cocky”?
why is it called “ghetto” or “ratchet” whenever i embrace styles natural to my culture but it’s “classy” and “alternative” when a white girl in Vogue does it?
why is “being black” a phase for white people (who then can always go back to being white again and still receive the benefits of their privilege) but it’s something i need to tone down in order to get a job?
why is it that i have/still get denied access into public places because of my natural hair and skin color?
why is it that a black boy with a hoodie is considered “dangerous” when a white boy with a gun is called “emotionally unstable”?
why is it that we must never forget the atrocities of the Holocaust or Pearl Harbor but i’m supposed to get over the effects of slavery?
why is it ok for white people to talk about their 1/3 German, 1/4 French, etc roots, but the rest of us are “immigrants” who need to “go back where we came from”?
why is it that Ebola has been killing brown people for years, but it’s suddenly curable when someone with white skin contracts it?
basically white people will spend so much time worried about stupid shit like why they cant use other cultures as fashion or why they cant say the n word…
So go ahead and rock your box braids..nobody is stopping you..the rest of us will be busy dodging the system of oppression that’s forced upon us every single day…
but i mean shouldn’t basic human rights be available for everyone???
there is no “tumblr hivemind” tumblr does not “contradict itself” nor is tumblr “welcoming and accepting” tumblr is not a single person it’s a fuckton of people with different opinions. those two contradictory text posts by sj bloggers you saw today were made by different people

MRA assholes are reblogging one of my posts while adding stupid comments.
This is exactly what I needed.
How can you watch the news or read the papers, and STILL don’t believe that there’s white or male privilege.
Yeah just ignore crimes by black people and women to enforce your shitty idea based on literally nothing if it helps to stroke your ego
Lovely. The same way you’re ignoring the fact that poc are arrested for petty crimes much more frequently than white people.
But yeah. Let’s look at crimes committed by women, thank you for mentioning that.
Now let’s look at the fact that they make up >50% of the population. Do me a favor and google by yourself how many women commit crimes compared to men.
