I’ve always loved Gonzo. I think this is why.
i need to stop seeing this shit come up on my dashboard. stop mimicking “black men” when you invoke predatory sexuality. recognize it and stop doing it. recognize the part youre playing in perpetuating the deadly myth of the black male rapist.
and read this: "Rape, Racism and the Myth of the Black Rapist" from Angela Davis’s Women Race and Class
THANK YOU FOR COMPILING THESE, OP. This fucking shit.
I HAVE WAITED FOR THIS FOR SO FUCKING LONG
THIS IS WHAT I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SAYING AND THAT THIS IS ALL HELLA ANTIBLACK
yeah these things try to be real feminist but theyre just racist as fuck
This is the samsung building in Mauldin, SC. It is owned by Samsung but operated by Alorica. It operates as a call center primarily and I a few months ago relocated to south carolina for a job there. I worked two whole days of training before the shit went down.
Before I get into what happened to me here is a bit of back story. I am a transwoman and have been transitioning on hormones for 2 years now. They knew I was a transwoman upon hiring me and I made sure of it. Now we get onto what went down my second day of training.
I walked into the training room as I had the previous day and class was going as it had the first day. We get released for lunch and I grab a bite to eat from my car, use the restroom, and sit back in class. Class starts back up again and for the first 20 minutes it was okay. Suddenly I get pulled out of the class by the head trainer and The head of human resources. This is where everything goes horribly wrong.
The Head of human resources informs me that they saw me use the womens restroom (I identify as a woman and it IS the appropriate restroom for me to use) I am now informed by her that I am no longer allowed to use the womens rest room. In her EXACT words she tells me this “There are a lot of issues with allowing you to use the womens restroom, primarily we don’t want anyone yelling rape, so understand that you now have to use the mens restroom" I stand there, shocked, and ask if there is a private restroom I could use instead seeing as I do NOT want to put my well being at risk. They swiftly tell me, no. I am then told that I have to be addressed by my legal name from then on and they can’t use my preferred name. I must also now dress by the mens dress code and cease the way I was currently dressing.
I head back into class, now shaking violently after all of this. I pull the instructor aside and tell him I was informed of an emergency to excuse myself from class and head home. I have a complete breakdown and can no longer show up to the job.
I talk to a few lawyers and no one wants to take the case even though what they did violated the law big time. I eventually filed a report with the EEOC (equal employment opportunity commission) which tells me that what they did was a clear violation of my rights. Sadly 4 months later, I have heard NOTHING back from them.
Since I see them never being held accountable for the shit they put me though I decided to post this here. I know 2 other people who have gone through the same thing at this facility previously and I don’t want anyone to have to go through this again.
transmisogyny and rape culture combined.
This is extremely close to my hometown. And while I’m heartbroken for the people that have to go through this, I can’t say I’m surprised. SC is one of the most intolerant, bigoted, close minded, judgmental places in the US. I love my Southern roots, but I hate what we, as a people, represent.
Yup. The south is amazing. Southerners are awful.
17. Animals and environment, health, finance. I chose this order because my first concern will always be the suffering of animals and the planet. I’ve said many times before that if I was told veganism was detrimental to my health, I would still be vegan, and I generally don’t care about money.
Same. I would seriously rather eat lentils and vitamin supplements every day forever than switch back to a diet of corpses.
I’m v happy I don’t have to do that, though haha
Hahaha vegans are so stupid you don’t kill cows to make cheese you rape them into a near-constant state of pregnancy, take away their calves, stick them in the most horrific living conditions imaginable for the entirety of their woefully short, brutish lives AND THEN you kill them hahaha dumb vegans
Look, I dont give a flying fuck if you like someone’s pronouns are not. I dont give a single shit if you think someone’s pronouns are “real pronouns” or not. (hint: all pronouns are real pronouns) and I dont give a single shit if you think they “sound weird” or not. Use people’s
preferredpronouns and keep your harmful ass opinions to yourself. k?
honestly wasn’t expecting that post to be repesctful
They still took a picture of this person without their permission, posted it on the internet, and called them a fatty. Yeah, i dont exactly find that respectful.
They also assume that bc the person is fat, they must hate themselves and want to be thin. They assume that the person is fat because they ate or drank too much or were lazy for some period before they began exercising. They aren’t showing respect to a fat person, they’re showing respect to a potential thin person.
Borrowed a couple signs from a pro-life rally going on outside of my work and edited it a little bit. The perks of living in Nebraska ladies and gentlemen.
Because you may have Native blood, but do you have the heart to pump it?
If a person of colour tells you that what you’re wearing is offensive then don’t wear it.
Disclaimer: This comic only applies to those [“you” meaning those who wear headdresses where it does not apply to them or their culture, hense cultural appropriation] or have in some way done offense in the term of cultural appropriation and this post was created specifically for said people in order to perhaps gain a better understanding of why cultural appropriation is offensive to many Native Americans [and to whom it applies within any person of colour] and strictly for educational purposes. This post does not mean to offend those who have done some sort of act of unintentional offense to Native Americans in the past by means of cultural appropriation and presently understand the offense that was made and regret it.
"But do you have the heart to pump it?"
If you’re not upset about Katniss, Tonto, or Khan being played by white people, but you are upset about Annie being played by a black girl, you’re probably racist.
And by probably I mean definitely.
kids… cover your eyes…those are heterosexuals
