I made that vest a while ago but don’t wear it too much anymore, anyone wants it? I need some money to go visit my best friend out of town so let me know if you are interrested to get that precious gem (size small, I can ship anywhere)
also I didn’t make the patch, I bought it at a zine faire and was wondering if any of you know who made it and if they were still selling the patch?
Cats against romance…
how come when a gay man hits on a straight man he’s a “predatory gay” but when a straight man hits on a lesbian it’s a “challenge”
A faculty member at Minneapolis Community and Technical College, Shannon Gibney, received a formal reprimand for her handling of a discussion about structural racism in her Introduction to Mass Communication course.
According to Gibney inan interview with City College News, a white male student asked her, “Why do we have to talk about this in every class? Why do we have to talk about this?”
She claims she was shocked, because “[h]is whole demeanor was very defensive. He was taking it personally. I tried to explain, of course, in a reasonable manner — as reasonable as I could given the fact that I was being interrupted and put on the spot in the middle of class — that this is unfortunately the context of 21st century America.”
Gibney says another white male student followed the first, saying “Yeah, I don’t get this either. It’s like people are trying to say that white men are always the villains, the bad guys. Why do we have to say this?”
When Gibney attempted, again, to inform the students that they were mistaking a systemic critique for a personal attack, the students continued to argue. Eventually, she told them that “if you’re really upset, feel free to go down to legal affairs and file a racial harassment discrimination complaint.” This is exactly what they did.
Gibney is familiar with white male students taking discussions about structural racism as personal attacks, as it has happened before: ina 2009 incident, an editor of the school newspaper took offense at a similar discussion. In both that case and this one, Gibney received an official reprimand. After the latest accusation, the Vice President of Academic Affairs appended a letter to her file, in which he said he found it “it troubling that the manner in which you led a discussion on the very important topic of of structural racism alienated two students who may have been most in need of learning about this subject.”
“While I believe it was your intention to discuss structural racism generally,” he continued, “it was inappropriate for you to single out white male students in class. Your actions in [targeting] select students based on their race and gender caused them embarrassment and created a hostile learning environment.”
Gibney told lawyers at an investigatory meeting for an anti-discrimination lawsuit she and six other professors are filling against MCTC that the vice president’s words “have helped those three white male students succeed in undermining my authority as one of the few remaining black female professors here.”
There’s a lot of irony in this story. In the students’ subsequent freak out about feeling “singled out” about structural racism they went over her head and tried to get the professor fired…indicating structural racism.
This is so intensely fucked up.
"I think people who commit suicide after transition probably do it because they’ve been treated horribly by bigots because of it. I think they’d be just as unhappy and likely to commit suicide if they were living a lie, though, and felt uncomfortable in their bodies.
What needs to happen is greater awareness. We talk about gay and lesbian issues all the time, which is great, but I think we need to be talking about trans issues just as much.
I’m often shocked at how little people know, even those in my generation, which tends to be more accepting than generation X and baby boomers. It’s quite a simple concept, really - that somebody was just born into the wrong body, but people don’t understand that. I think trans people deserve a lot of compassion, and I, for one, think they are so brave. I think a lot of people would agree with me, if we could just educate them a bit.”
Amongst this whole Tom Daley business, for those of you out of the loop Tom Daley is gold medal wining Olympic diver for GB who came out today and being in a relationship with a man, someone I knew back in high school decided to post a status relating. This status, which I cannot show a screenshot…
Next time a white person accuses you of #reverseracism, ask them if they have two and a half minutes to watch this
I may never stop laughing this is excellent
White guys are so proud of their ability to be not offended. When one of them tells a rape joke or uses a racial slur, they wink and pat themselves on the back and give endless attaboys for their superior skills in being not offended. They decry the “politically correct” society…
