I'm a fat gay black nerd and these posts reflect some of the things I'm interested in. Be warned not every thing that piques my interest is safe for work.
do you ever think of the deliberate classism in the prices of allergy-free foods because they’re considered to be for health trends for the rich rather than a necessity for poor individuals with severe food allergies who actually need them

- stop comparing Hong Kong to Ferguson JESUS CHRIST STOP. These are two completely different social and political situations fuelled by different forms of oppression and systematic power, you’re not helping one by dismissing the other.

"One aspect in particular that got to me was Meg and Lisa’s story and how they were really the only female characters to GET a story this episode. And I think their story is SO INTERESTING because it compares and contrasts how both shows deal with the social construct of girls and girlhood. While in “The Simpsons” girls are encouraged to educate themselves, be independent, and strong, and really to ask questions (through the character of Lisa), the “Family Guy” will throw girls’ attempts to develop themselves as human beings in the trash (like when Peter throws the Saxophone Lisa gives Meg in the trash). MacFarlane demonstrates here for the zillionth time that Meg’s utility in the show is purely as the (unfunny) punchline of a sexist joke; someone to make fun of, call ugly, physically assault, and so on. This, I think, is really definitive of how MacFarlane views girls and women in general: A lame, unfunny, sexualized, usable, disposable, joke." by feministingforchange
I wish more cartoons taught young girls that if a man harasses you or annoys you or whatever you should blow him up with a bazooka and feel no remorse :)))
What were these guys thinking, though!?!
I mean, they live in Gotham City.
So what, they’re driving down the street, and they see a car being driven by that lady with plant-based superpowers and the girlfriend of that sinister clown who’s constantly cutting up people’s faces with razor blades and they just naturally think: “Hmm, maybe I should harass these women.”
