such a needed campaign. i wish they’d have included native americans as well, though, as cultural appropriation of them in costumes is just as awfully common.



It’s that time of year again when these go around. And I will keep reblogging them. And if I see the joke ones I am likely to rip them apart with prejudice.

I will reblog this every year and unfollow anyone who posts joke fandom spinoffs of this very serious and important commentary.

WHO: Ebola death toll in West Africa tops 3,000

breakingnews:

Reuters: The death toll from an outbreak of Ebola in West Africa has risen to at least 3,091 out of 6,574 probable, suspected and confirmed cases, the World Health Organization said on Friday.

Liberia has recorded 1,830 deaths, around three times as many as in either Guinea or Sierra Leone, the two other most affected countries, according to WHO data received up to Sept. 23.

"There’s the three “men of Middle Eastern appearance” who were detained by police at a football match because someone thought the way they were checking their phones was “suspicious”.

There’s the Muslim guy who was detained by the cops for filming in the Melbourne CBD (read his account over the The Drum if you read nothing else; it’s mildly terrifying).

There’s that mosque in far north Queensland that was vandalised, that mosque in Brisbane that was vandalised, those Muslim ladies in Queensland being told to “fuck off back to your own country” and having coffee thrown on them, and that carload of white guys on the Gold Coast who threatened to behead a brown person in the street because they thought he was Muslim (seriously, Queensland, you are not covering yourself in glory on this one).

There’s the guy who walked into an Islamic school in Sydney armed with a knife, forcing children to be locked inside their classrooms and hide under their desks.

There’s the spat-upon mum, the kicked baby’s pram, the vandalised car and the pig’s head on a spike — the pig’s head on a spike — that have been reported in WA. There’s the rape and death threats being made against Muslim women, and the indifference it’s been met with.”

Fetishization of Lao women. Because we are “valued" for our: 
"Exotic" looks.
Supposedly traditional values. 
Docile and gentle mannerisms.
Very good with tasks such as cleaning, child-bearing, etc.
Because they think we won’t fight back. 
How can somebody, especially a foreigner (and even a Lao men), even try to understand a Lao woman as if she is a special specimen of an animal? Or how Lao women’s bodies (even Lao children) are used for the sex tourism industry, constantly violated and abused? And how half of tourists and expats that arrive in Laos only came for our women since their “American” ladies, etc. are too “unmanageable” and “newfangled”? Are we merely trophy wives? Your sex dolls? Your punching bags? We are not for sale. We are not for your disgusting fantasies.

OK SOME REALLY SERIOUS SHIT IS HAPPENING IN NORTH KOREA

According to South Korean newspapers, last week the North Korean government PUBLICLY EXECUTED 80 people in 7 cities for watching South Korean/Western shows, movies, and videos, “pornography,” or possessing a Bible.

Apparently people’s attitudes and conformance are changing SO THIS IS HOW THE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO SUPPRESS DISOBEDIENCE

They allegedly herded 10,000 innocent civilians into a stadium where they were FORCED TO WATCH THE EXECUTIONS BY MACHINE GUN FIRE

THIS IS HONESTLY SOME HUNGER GAMES SHIT HAPPENING IN REAL LIFE RIGHT NOW

10 Slides is not enough. So many other things I wanted to talk about, like Sex-Repulsed and Sex-Positive Aces and everything in between.
But in the end, I really wanted to give Aromanticism some visibility, and Demisexuals and Grey-As I thought rounded the thing out nicely by helping explain to people searching for their identity that asexuality need not be black and white.
