Reporting of incident where this man fucking forcibly ran into @bdoulaoblongata with his walker while saying he is Darren Wilson. Protestors were protesting this location because owner stopped allowing black patrons to enter, only white patrons and pulled a gun out on protestors.

Video clips of him allowing white patrons only and locking door to come.

My castiel themed kimono I wore twice at the Supernatural #DallasCon 2014.This kimono surpassed any expectations I had. The wings! (squee). A new friend, http://isaisanisa.tumblr.com/, took all these wonderful pictures. THANK YOU!

Here is the link that lists all entries for making this kimono. => LINK

Original post and design: LINK

Can white people please not do re-designs of the kimono like this and then wear them like a costume to a con
just make a dress or something
not this
thanks

this is the most extra waste of money i’ve ever seen

also those shoes are something only school shooters and uncles wear

nOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO i’m so glad i didn’t go to the supernatural dallas con now that i know this level of appropriation was happening.

Alright, I can fully understand why people view this as appropriation.  I do however want to point out a few things:

1.) She did not sexualize the kimono in any way. 

2.) Her obi is actually being worn correctly and includes the correct usage of an Obiage (that blue scarf peaking out of the top) and includes an Obijime (the decorative cord). info source: http://www.wafuku.co.uk/kimonoinfo11.htm

3.) There are many different pop-culture stylizations of kimono in Japan.
A prominent example is the Lolita fashion style Wa-Lolita. 

4.) What the hell do her shoes have to do with any of this? Some people can’t wear Geta or Zori due to their lack of support and often limited sizes available and also the fact that some people have shitty feet and MUST wear supportive/orthopedic shoes.  I cannot wear my own Geta for more than short spurts of time when I wear my Yukata. 

5.) Her under-clothing (Hadajuban) is being worn correctly as which way you overlap the fabric can literally signify if you are alive or dead.

TLDR: She did her research on how to properly wear a Kimono.  Yes, this is a costume and if people view it as offensive that is understandable.  It is however, NOT a caricature of the artistry that goes into real kimono or women wearing a kimono (often Geisha are incorrectly portrayed). 

If you want to hate on a costume creator for appropriation then go protest stores that sell the shitty Halloween costumes that over-sexualize literally any “exotic” piece of clothing they can find.   

The fuck? So because she didn’t make something as bad as it COULD have been it’s supposed to be fine? White people should not do re-designs of the kimono. They can’t fully understand it’s significance, and because they have never been banned from wearing it or been forced to stop wearing it to assimilate they don’t have the right to do this. It’s gross. 

Secondly, why are we pretending it’s ok for you to tell me whether or not to be offended by something that affects me? Even if you are also Japanese (and lbr you probably aren’t) where do you get off telling me “oh you shouldn’t call them out, because there are worse ones out there!” especially when I actually do take the time to call those out too. 

TLDR, fuck you and your bullshit defense of this person

oh my fucking god

Acephobia in the LGBT+ Community from the documentary (A)sexuality. 

It is just…so fucking weird how threatened people feel when it comes to Asexuality.  I still can’t wrap my mind around it.

I’m so happy this post is being reblogged by LBGT+ people who aren’t asexual. I keep on reading posts by non-ace LGBT+ people of support to the ace community, and of being stunned by this reaction by a movement which should know better than to judge. AND THAT MAKES THIS ACE SO FREAKING HAPPY. The woman in the first photo expresses my sentiment. I know I belong in the queer/LGBTQIA movement. I want to belong. But I just don’t know if I’m welcome. I’m so happy that there are so many people on Tumblr who do not fall into the catagory of outright refusal of asexuality.

I know not a lot of people understand asexuality. And I know there’s confusion about it, about our experiences, and about how we fit in the movement. But let’s talk about this. Let’s have this conversation.

I mostly don’t delve into the ace tags, but I hear there’s a lot of ace-hate that and I really don’t get it.  I don’t understand how asexuality is threatening.

You know what I (as a queer ace-spectrum person) find most threatening?  Getting unwanted sexual unwanted advances from both queer and straight people. I’ve gotten them from people of all spectrums and it always makes me profoundly uncomfortable, and often unsafe.  It just boggles my mind how people are upset by the concept of asexuality.  That’s like getting really mad at someone who isn’t hungry.  What’s the point?  Just shut up eat your own sandwich. (And stop chewing on me.)

Wow, the fuck the people in those images.

Nobody has the right to disrespect anybody else’s sense of self. It may not be for, you but that does not give you the right to be an asshole.

We really need to push more for LGBTQIA+ to be a standard, instead of just LGBT, especially considering that even the B and T are already invisible in much of the community.

Not supporting some of us = not supporting all of us.

Not supporting some of us = not supporting all of us.

It really, really does bear repeating.

I couldn’t be further from ace, but for serious.

If we’re not in this together, we’re not in this at all.

This makes me so angry. I have friends who are ace, and they are just as much a part of the queer community as I am.

We need to embrace asexuality and treat it with the respect that it deserves.

You actually got it? I was just kidding about the leg, I just thought it’d be funny!

This is one of the things that pissed me off about this movie because like what is the point in having that line in there. Like useless to what your plan (because you kinda needed the technology in his leg which you actually lied about needing) so then he is useless because he has a prosthetic leg, like come on. This movie has so much going for it and shit like this ruin it.

On a serious note though people who idolize serial killers honestly disgust me. Especially when white men who are convicted rapists and murderers are celebrated by wannabe edgy fucks for their “beautifully twisted minds” who wax philosophically about how they shouldn’t be in jail because they’re just poor sensitive lambs lost in society’s evil machine… while black men on minor drug charges rot in jail and no one blinks an eye……

IT IS GETTING BETTER

When I first read about this woman’s plan I thought it was a strong idea but I was worried that it was a little bit much for one person, no matter how dedicated, to keep it up for too long, especially since she has, you know, college to commit to. I never thought about how, if other people helped her carry her burden, I never thought about how much it would look like pallbearers with a coffin. Which is simply one of the strongest visual symbols one can use to disturb people in the western world.

VIDEO:Introducing French Afro-Cuban Twin Sisters Ibeyi & Their Yoruba Doom Soul

Ibeyi, made up of Cuban-born, Paris-based twin sisters Naomi and Lisa-Kaindé Díaz, is an electronic doom soul duo who are forging a new spiritual sound with their debut EP Oya. The 19-year-old musicians are XL Recordings‘ newest signees, and their introductory singles “Oya” and “River” possess a hypnotic blend of hip-hop, electronica, and blues infused with Yoruba prayers and folk songs that will transport you to a higher realm upon first listen.

Singing in French, English, Spanish and Yoruba, Ibeyi count among their primary influences Nina Simone, Meshell Ndegeocello, James Blake and their late father, the celebrated Cuban jazz percussionist Miguel “Anga” Diaz. Ibeyi’s vocal range, which wavers from the raspy and wraith-like to the sonorous and divine, is ideal for their sonic palette which revels in the phantasmagorical groove of liturgical Yoruba songs. Besides singing in Yoruba–which was brought to Cuba by West African slaves–Ibeyi honor their father’s legacy and Afro-Cuban heritage through their percussive production and use of live instruments. Beatsmith Naomi plays both the cajón and the batá while Lisa-Kaindé remains more in tune with the musical mythos of Ibeyi’s sound by weaving Yoruba lore deeply into their lyrics. “River” is dedicated to the goddess Oshun (the mother of the Ibeyi, and their first single and EP are both named for  Oya (the benevolent orisha who took the Ibeyi in after Oshun was accused of witchcraft for birthing twins and kicked them out).

i’ve stopped trash talking comic sans after learning the font is actually one of the only dyslexia-friendly fonts that come standard with most computers and i advocate for others doing the same

In the event that you would like to continue hating Comic Sans, other dyslexia-friendly alternatives include Arial, Verdana, Tahoma, Century Gothic and Trebuchet.
