No but I can just imagine a person bursting through the door screaming “I NEED YOUR HELP. IT’S A NINE” and everyone in the shop stops and all collectively goes “Oh shit” and the florists start working frantically while the man/woman just stands there looking scared as fuck while the other customers are trying to figure out what they did.
that must be bad if it’s a 9 on an alphabetical scale.
IM FUCKGIN CRYING
Okay but this is really fucking sexist. Come on. If you’ve done something to piss your girlfriend/wife/whatever off, flowers aren’t gonna automatically fix the problems. Women aren’t materialistic shrews who pretend to be mad to get flowers.
^ I have seen this on my dash a lot of times and I assumed people were gonna comment on its sexism but nobody did, so thank you <3
I’m glad they actually included WOC in this (unlike the gay one >_>V)
There is truth to stereotypes, but this does not mean that somebody should feel pressured to follow one because it’s what society says they should do. A christian gay does not have to become agnostic. A femme does not have to become butch just to be seen as a lesbian (an issue known as Femme Invisibility). A masculine straight girl should not have to prove that she is straight by becoming feminine!
Stereotypes are not a tool for you to find out somebody’s sexuality or gender identity.
African men debunk stereotypes portrayed by Hollywood blockbusters.
Things like this are terrifying because they make me aware of prejudices and preconceived notions I wasn’t even aware I held.
Oh “it’s just a joke?” THANK GOD YOU CAME HERE AND CLARIFIED THAT. No one has EVER used that as an excuse to hurt other people/say horrible shit. By the way, this again, because people clearly still need it^
Those little things, the jokes and sterotypes. They are the foundation on which the pyramid is built, and why we need to fight so hard against them. The fertiliser out of which bigotry grows.
THIS EXACTLY THIS.
I want to hand this out like a fucking flier
The 4 Types of People on Welfare Nobody Talks About
It turns out, like anything spoon fed to us by the media and politicians, there are plenty of myths associated with people on welfare.
read this now. And sent this to your political representatives regardless of where you live in this world. This information needs to be spread throughout the land
mini twitter essay of the day
That is not a feminism I support."
There is good evidence that people, beginning as children, internalize the stereotypes that others have of them. As Ann Ferguson shows in her book, Bad Boys: Public Schools in the Making of Black Masculinity, black children, especially boys, are stereotyped as pre-criminals; not adorably naughty, like white boys, but dangerously bad from the beginning. And studies with children have shown that they often internalize this idea, as in the famous doll experiment in which both black and white children were more likely than not to identify the black doll as bad (see this similar demonstration of white preference on CNN and a discussion of the original doll experiment at ABC).
I think back to the video of 7 year old Latarian Milton and how everyone used his video to mock him and then mack comments about how he is a future car thief waiting to happen. Meanwhile Preston’s youtube video is full of people praising his ability to drive a car with no experience.
Yup, that’s what is known as white privilege. White kids get to “make mistakes” and be children. Black children are deemed criminals from birth. We are never innocent.
Know Anyone Who Thinks Racial Profiling Is Exaggerated? Watch This, And Tell Me When Your Jaw Drops.
This is one massive reality check, folks.
This replicates an old study where the participants were younger and vandalizing a car. The results? The white boys’ behavior was typically characterized as “mischief” and was not reported. The black boys? Not so much. (I wonder how long it would take me to find…)
And in the vandalizing car study, the white kids got away with it IMMEDIATELY.
Also, some man called the cops on a BLACK FAMILY SLEEPING IN THEIR CAR ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PARK (They were the relatives of the black boy actors)
He described them (the SLEEPING BLACK FAMILY) as dangerous, getting ready to go and ROB SOMEBODY.
Black people who are fuckign ASLEEP AND UNCONSCIOUS ARE CONSIDERED DANGERS TO HUMANITY OVER WHITE PEOPLE WHO ARE COMMITTING A CRIME RIGHT IN FRONT OF PEOPLE’S FACES.
So much truth here about every Eurocentric fantasy world.
i love how men mock women for being overemotional and then lose their shit over a team losing an over-glorified game of fetch
Because all men like watching sports, obviously, right? You just did what you hate men doing, putting generalizations on a whole gender.
i know i did
irritating, isn’t it?
