This is the story of the three Baudelaire children. Violet loved to invent; her brother, Klaus, loved to read; and their sister, Sunny… she loved to bite.
Former Marine turned photographer Joel Parés’ series Judging America used real people dressed as stereotypes to remind us to not judge a person based on their tattoos, clothing, ethnicity, profession, or sexual orientation, but on their merits.
I’m not asking for anyone to be banned from YouTube. But hate speech is against the site’s terms of service and there should be consequences. It’d be nice if he’d acknowledge why these thing are problematic, apologize to his audience and stop doing them. But I highly doubt that’ll happen. The same way the YouTube community called for Sam Pepper to remove his “prank” videos where he sexually assaults women, I think the videos where Shane uses the n-word, does blackface and parodies black people and makes rape and molestation jokes should be removed from YouTube.
Numerous popular YouTubers came out to say they won’t stand for homophobia or misogyny in the community but remain silent on issues of racism, which their audience needs to hear about. It’s disappointing that POC don’t get the same level of support that more “mainstream” issues do on YouTube. And even if the videos aren’t removed, I’d at least like to see those same high profile creators take a stand and say this isn’t ok and we won’t support it. Start the conversation about why this isn’t ok. Normalizing racism has serious consequences, the same way sexism and homophobia have consequences. Unfortunately the majority of the YouTube audience isn’t going to listen or care unless it comes from a high profile (ahem WHITE) content creator. According to the fans I’m just “jealous” and “playing the race card”. And that’s a big part of the problem and a whole different story…
Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.
And they did it without mimicking AAVE (unlike the other one).
Harry Potter AU where someone sees Harry in his cousin’s over-sized clothing with his underfed body and hears him casually mention the cupboard in which he sleeps and calls the fucking police
#and then dumbledore finds out#and comes to visit him in his new orphanage#and is like well shit#this is familiar#please dont talk to snakes#OH FUCKING HELL HARRY POTTER#YOU HAD ONE JOB (via: zavocado)
YOU HAD ONE JOB
why the fuck would you write harry potter as gay when the phrase ‘the bi who lived’ is right there waiting for you
That’s what he gets
That is a great comic!
why comparing outdated promotional material to make the absurd claim that they’ve been using the exact same model for the past 5 years is dumb: a visual essay
