don’t trust MoC from a different background to you who compliment/flirt with/constantly praise you, but at the expense of the women of their own race they refuse to date and push all their self-hate onto. don’t be complicit in that. it’s nothing to be proud of.

okay, but do you know what’s actually unhealthy? being so fixated on a stranger’s size, you feel the need to play (unqualified) medical examiner to justify your rudeness and continue holding onto the belief you have that anyone bigger than you’re comfortable with automatically deserves your crap.

I was clearing out a cabinet in the study and came across a stamp collecting album of my dad’s. my first thought was, “what a dweeb”, but then I realised I’d spent twenty minutes going through it. he wrote his address in Chandigarh on the inside cover so it must be just over forty years old.

and then I felt compelled to look through (a fraction of) his record collection and found my stylespiration in the form of the guy in pink fringe on the Sanyasi soundtrack.

predators literally love sex positivity and are the main supporters of it i just cant stress this enough obviously it started out with good intentions but its such an easy thing for evil manipulative people to latch onto and have people think theyre doing things under the guise of sexual freedom

funny how the people who constantly defend woody allen and roman polanski’s work by insisting their material is entirely separate from its creators are the same people who believe their work should have any bearing on whether or not they face the consequences of what disgusting people they are. and by funny I mean gross, shameful, not at all surprising, and an embarrassing display of cognitive dissonance and wilful ignorance.

I cannot deal with this inability so many white people have to understand that they’re not the centre of everything but actually a fraction of spectrum that encompasses everyone else too. like, you have to remind them that people of colour exist, that brown skin and its complexities exist. I’ll hear, “god, my hair is so curly” about a loose wave, and then a hurry to disclaim they solely meant white people when someone brings up a hair type with tight curls. no? it wasn’t intentional, it was obviously you forgetting that the line just doesn’t stop with you?

I’m so sick of hearing POC’s features are “too” dark/uneven/flat/high/big/small/whatever. in comparison to what? whiteness isn’t some fixed standard I deviate from. it happens to exist alongside me, and it’s exhausting having to know everything there is to know about it by virtue of it being treated as a default, when white people won’t even open up the parameters of what they think is “normal”.

that piece, the first one especially, is like…yeah. I’ve heard it all from people around me/not talking to me directly when we’re in a group.

"I wanna get some colour but I don’t wanna be too dark"
"pale and interesting"
"y’know nipples can tan too - if you’re tanning fully naked, can you go darker than pink down there as well? that’s so gross"
"if it isn’t pink, isn’t something wrong?"
"I’ve heard some people get dark patches around their knees, elbows, between their legs and that, and they say it’s normal but who gets that? do they probably just not wash properly or something?"
"it’s pretty when you’re golden but too dark and it’s just muddy"
"she’s beautiful, she’s so fair/tanned but not overly overly dark"

and then the inevitable embarrassment and fluster when they realise who can hear them or who they’re talking to. which isn’t enough but it’s something fun I feel I’m owed.

using size as a synonym for dirtiness, a bad personality etc. is gross. aziz ansari’s celebrated “if you’re clean, well dressed and mildly cultured, you’re super gay now. is that why the rest of you guys are so aggressively fat and dirty?” is gross. unnecessarily bringing up weight when justifiably criticising misogynistic fedora-wearing bronies is gross. letting stuff like that slide as a slim person because you don’t want to admit you hold those prejudices too is gross.
