Step back, peeps, and fasten your seat-belts. Time to bring in a puberty professional.
…. wait. That’s not right. Hold on.
Let’s fast-forward about five more years.
Ah, yes, there we go. Right after I sold my soul to Satan.
Naw son you can’t be hot in both genders you fucking cheated
happy international women’s day
Why isn’t there a white/Caucasian female? We’re supposed to be celebrating the endless and powerful spectrum of women all over the world.
Because not only do women of colour face oppression by men on a daily basis, they also face oppression by white people on a daily basis White women are very well represented in comparison to women of colour - they’ve had numerous TV shows that are white feminist-centric - eg Girls, Sex and the City and also movies like Mean Girls. A celebration of solely women of colour is necessary in order to empower us and bring us at least to the same status of white women.
Women of colour are not represented very well in white media, and are told to get their own shows but when they do get their own shows they’re told “wow, an all coloured show? isn’t that kinda racist???” In fact, white people make about only 30% of the world, meaning white women are 15% of the world’s population.
Basically what I’m trying to get at is if the white population represented women of colour better then we wouldn’t need a separate celebration of our achievements. But they don’t, so we do. It’s like that post about Mario Kart - you don’t get the blue shell if you’re already in first place. I’m sorry if this didn’t make sense, it’s 1:30 in the morning.
bless you for replying to this is a manner much better than i could have done.
to put it bluntly i’ve seen 12 different photosets celebrating international women’s day, this is the only one that doesn’t have a white woman on it, 9 of the others didn’t have a single non-white woman on them, 2 were mixed,
when 2/3rds of women are non-white and they only appeared on 1/3rd of these photosets, and only got 1/12th to themselves, shit is fucked up, that is not proportional representation
In addition, please do not refer to white women as Caucasian, as there are actually Caucasian people from Caucasus.
When you, as a white person, say, “But why are there no white people here? Why is this only POC?” you sound like Dudley Dursley asking why Harry gets one present all to himself at Christmas when Dudley has thirty-five of them stacked up behind him that he will never, ever share. That’s how childish you sound
Except, of course, for the part where some of the white people “presents” are and have been ownership of POC and murdering them and getting off scot free and structurally benefiting at their expense and so on and soforth. We white people have so fucking much, and we have done so fucking much horrible shit to people who aren’t white, and you want to complain because they get a fucking gifset all to themselves? Jesus fucking Christ, how petty can you be? (Not to mention racist.)

richard waters is the man who saved the lady
he was just there taking photos when he saw her climb over the rail
“she did it so smoothly.. it was like she was going to her own club house.. like she was going to go sit on the ledge and eat lunch..
so i got a couple of pictures of her climbing over, and i started taking pictures of her standing on the ledge.. and then i realized that this girl was about to jump.
but because i was behind the camera, it was almost like it wasn’t real..
so i got up on the rail and i reached out and grabbed the back of her jacket, and once i grabbed it i just lifted her up and over the rail”
never not repost people
I will always reblog not only because of the picture but also for the person who wrote the first comment !
