We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.

Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.

#when will people start giving names to young non-white scientists??#bc that shit is getting old

boost the fuck out of this, and make sure you include their goddamn names and country of origin.

Suey Park about the new ABC sitcom, Fresh Off the Boat based off of the book Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir by Eddie Huang. After watching the trailer released by ABC, she addressed the show’s several shortcomings including: a criminal misrepresentation of the Chinese and Taiwanese community (by the use of Korean American actors), the manipulation of the term “Asian” to erase heterogeneity between cultures, an immigrant stereotype perpetuating premise, and the use of FOB as an identifier when it is clearly used against immigrant poc. (x,x,x,x,x,x)

What’s stupid is I’m pretty sure Koreans are Asian too right? How is that a problem, they do look a lot alike as a community what the hell is this how’s problem ?

You’re right while we’re at it we should replace 80% of white actors in Hollywood with giant expired containers of molded ass cottage cheese y’all look a lot alike as a community anyway

It’s like calling a Jamaican a Haitian.

THIS.
