At this point I think I want to express my level of frustration with:

  • The unfettered capitalism which has led to Martin Shkreli and the Volkswagen scandal

  • The unbelievable racism in the treatment of Ahmed Mohamed

  • The unseeing denial of the privileged to even acknowledge privilege, let alone discuss it

  • The unhelpful nature of white feminism: YOUR FEMINISM WILL BE INTERSECTIONAL OR IT WILL BE BULLSHIT

It's pretty high, folks.

*fumes with you*

on the bright side, the public response (generally speaking, at least) to ahmed mohamed was pretty great, so at least western society isn't a totally lost cause.

also, WOW at that tiger beatdown post. just... wow. fucking amen. i didn't know about the n* slutwalk controversy, and it's so easy to miss issues surrounding black woc in canada because there are just so much fewer of them here, but i'm glad you linked that and glad i read it. PEOPLE. WHAT EVEN.
