  4. "Online activism changed me from a woman who actively put down other women to one who actively uplifts them. Online activism changed me from a white woman with unchecked privilege who actively oppressed people of color to a woman who has lost friends because she tells them to shut their racist mouths. Online activism has changed me from a woman who hated her body, to a woman who realizes just how beautiful she is. No one EVER tell me online activism isn’t good for anything."


    The above is so me. My gut reaction is to cringe at the phrase “online activism” but when you really think about it everything these online communities provide —  free information/literature sharing, community building, consciousness raising, and the free exchange of ideas and critiques are all (more within the self, more passive) forms of activism.

    One of my favorite rebuttals of some asshat saying the usual “SJ blogs don’t even do anything because it’s not in real life” was when someone said "If it wasn’t for online activism, I’d still be calling women sluts and whores."

    Same for me. And now I’m a sociology major and I go to a women’s college and constantly read/think/write about intersectional feminism. So fuck anyone who thinks online social justice conversations and blogs don’t “do anything.”

    Saving this for people who think that online activism and education doesn’t have value.

    (via moniquill)

    Through this little blogging website, I learned a fuckton about homophobia, sexism, racism, and took all of it to heart. I know some people scoff at “social justice”, but without it, I would still be homophobic, I’d still be a little sexist, and I’d probably still be saying unintentionally racist bullshit.

    Queer subtext in media is nice and all, but have you considered:

    • Including actual queer characters instead of vague metaphors for queer characters.

    Block. report. Work to make this fucking shit DISAPPEAR. 

    White “allies” who have previously expressed horror at the racism in this fandom, now is the time for you to actually do something.

  9. but seriously though - emma swan is a bamf and she can deal with any shit that green beyotch can throw at her and her family. because she is capable, and strong, and fierce and she doesn’t need no brooding pirate douche white knighting it so he can feel better after being a douche. 

    Also she has regina aka THE EVIL QUEEN on her side teaching her how to magic and holy shit how can you be so freaking ridiculous killian. just tell her about the threat, say, heeeyyyy ems, i mighta got cursed by Zolena (what’s up with that name btw - the wicked witch is elphaba ppl) and now she says if i don’t kiss you and take your powers away she’ll start hurting people you love eg henry. Oh hai regina, yeah i forgot that you are also very very fiercely protective of henry and have cast several protection spells over the charmings, and could do the same over other ppl. hey, why don’t you protection spell everyone in storybrook huh? 

    in other words, ouat is just as balls to wall confusing as usual and i love it because it is a soap opera with fairytales and yay


  10. captain swan is hitting all my feelings

    also killian is white knighting the shit out of this

    cap. stahp. let swan queen deal with it they have magic

    #john barrowman is having none of your misogynist bullshit

    i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant
    "hahahaha women do laundry right john?  you with me, john?"
    "don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”

    This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.

    Bolding mine.

    I hope I live long enough to attain even a tenth of Barrowman’s “you fucking martian” face.
