Please stop focusing only on ableist slurs in anti-ableist activism 2k14

Also recognize that not all ableist language is slur-based and until we change people’s value concepts stoping people from saying specific words isn’t gonna do a whole hell of a lot

"I am an Inuit seal meat eater, and my fur is ethical," wrote Alethea Arnaquq-Baril, bundled in a sealskin coat, pants and boots. She also wrote a letter to DeGeneres and posted it online.

Samsung vowed to donate $1 for every retweet of DeGeneres’ celebrity-packed Oscars selfie to a charity of her choice. She raised $1.5 million for the Humane Society of the United States, which campaigns annually against Canada’s seal hunt.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s website calls the seal hunt “one of the most atrocious and inhumane acts against animals allowed by any government.”

The Inuit have long defended the hunt as a sustainable practice, deeply rooted in Inuit culture, which helps feed people in a region plagued by hunger.

"The meat feeds families, which is important to an area where many households have identified that they face issues of food insecurity," said Sandi Vincent, who posted her own sealfie Thursday.

The pelts also come in handy in the cold northern climate and provide a needed source of income, she said. She also countered the idea of the hunt as “inhumane.”

"In Inuit culture, it is believed seals and other animals have souls and offer themselves to you. Humanely and with gratitude we accepted this gift," she said, reminiscing about catching her first seal at age 15.

The stereotype of the ugly, unfuckable feminist exists for a reason – because it’s still the last, best line of defence against any woman who is a little too loud, a little too political. Just tell her that if she goes on as she is, nobody will love her. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’ve always believed that part of the point of feminist politics – part of the point of any sort of radical politics – is that some principles are more important than being universally adored, particularly by the sort of men who would prefer women to smile quietly and grow our hair out.

if I ever see a girl in public who is clearly going for something really bold with her look (crazy hair, makeup, outfit) and looks like she’s maybe uncomfortable or nervous about rocking it, I make sure to go up to her and tell her she looks fierce. It took a lot of courage to go out like that and somebody ought to notice.

changes lives. be sure to do that at least once a day.

you’re the type of person this world needs

bless you

Seriously.

And don’t you dare make fun of her. Don’t you dare laugh at her bravery and self expression. Not even “just to your friends”, cuz I guarantee you, she knows.

You praise the hell out of that girl for existing as loudly as she can in a world that tells her to make herself smaller and quieter and more palatable (but be creative and unique and quirky too!!); you praise her and celebrate her or you shut your damn mouth because nobody cares about your shitty opinion

white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when

Gross

Also notice how these women are made to look so exactly the same and interchangeable, to hold the same expression (which isn’t about looking happy and okay with this shit at all but we for care because why should their feelings matter? Hell most of us don’t think they have feelings), to wear the same clothes with the same makeup and props and everything.

Like we already stereotype the hell out of Asian folks (specifically Japanese women in these cases, but it extends to other East Asian ethnicities) as interchangeable and not individual, real people with real valid emotions and thoughts and desires.

So much about this plays into those stereotypes and let’s the white girl play off of whatever good things they can get from associating with the “exotic”, while juxtaposing them with these other women so they don’t get the bad.

We really need to stop this shit. We need to stop doing it, stop supporting celebrities that do it, and start supporting actual Asian women who are influenced by their own culture and history (or aren’t in any way) to produce music and fashion and media of all kinds.

I have the same issue so badly, which is why I’m shaving just the side(s)

Also I have what me and my friend refer to as “mullet chops” which are like mutton chops but instead of on your face they hang from either side on the back of your head cuz your hair doesn’t grow back evenly.

Yeah

Need to get rid of that shit pronto

I know you think you’re disabled, but I googled ableism, and you really should be calling yourself ‘differently abled’.
