[TW: harassment, threats, stalking, violence, slurs, racism]

So, someone decided to post this submission with a link to medievalpoc to a subreddit called “Tumblr In Action” this morning.

I’ve posted about this before.

Let’s stop pretending we have no idea where this comes from:

And can we stop pretending as if these supposed “rules” actually mean anything, or are ever actually enforced:

Medievalpoc has received tens of thousands of hits from this particular subreddit from more than 60 separate threads, some of which have hundreds of derogatory comments, using slurs, threats, and racist ‘jokes’.

And it is somehow a “coincidence” that I have had to speak to police four times and make official reports due to threats, stalking, harassment, and other nastiness? That people have followed me around in person without my knowledge or consent because of this? People have circumvented the “ignore” function by creating accounts just to send racial slurs and threats.

The rest of this is going under a cut, because it is truly horrific. Please proceed with caution.

Just re-blog if you agree with her, because, quite frankly, the article speaks for itself. Horrifically.

How come the actors we tend to like the most are the ones with the least fame or recognition? And why do we seem to value looks and popularity over talent?

A few days ago, a video made the rounds about the water crisis in Detroit, where a community activist exposed the biased and inaccurate claims of a reporter. The reporter, who works for a local news outlet in Detroit, claimed that a significant amount of Detroiters whose water were being cut off, actually had the money but spent their funds on luxuries rather than necessities.

In other words…Friday.

New military uniform regulations limits black women’s hairstyles to expensive and time-consuming styles instead of natural styles.

So, let me see if I have this straight:

The hairstyles with the most convenience are banned from the Army, yet the ones that are the most time-consuming and expensive are accepted…

Are they that fucking stupid?!?

From Wikipedia (as of May 2014):

OK, a few questions:
Who, exactly, would wear a mink jock?
If you give him one in a small, would he be insulted?
I understand “Ebony” but…what the hell colors are “Ranch” and “Champagne”?
How much would this “hot new idea in erotic apparel” cost in 2014 dollars? And, why would you need more than one?
After sexytime with whomever, do you keep it in cold storage?
