ah yes, valid criticism about frozen being a shit movie must be so hard on these fictional character’s self esteem.

Nevermind that the racism and sexism in Frozen hurts actual children, think of how ur tumblr posts would make these fictional characters feel

INCREDIBLE

I hate when people try to frame criticism of creative decisions by creators (especially large companies) as being attacks on the poor little characters.  This is just like when Stan Lee tried to deflect criticism of the way he writes Sue Storm by writing a comic where the F4 read fan mail and Sue was crying about how mean everybody was to her.  Sue Storm isn’t real, and acting as if people mad about the sexist creative decisions of a male writer is actually being mean to a fictional woman is really really really disingenuous.  Or when people act like Escher Girls isn’t about the way companies and the industry as a whole represents women, but is “shaming” the sexuality of the sad warrior women who just want to express themselves in boobs and butt fighting stances and battle bikinis.

These fictional characters are details in a product, and criticism of the decisions that go into making that product is no more awful than criticizing the design of the new iPhone.  It’s not hurting the iPhone’s feelings, it’s about Apple.  And trying to pretend that criticism of a multi billion dollar company like Disney is actually picking on a little girl is so so so amazingly dishonest, and willfully trying to dodge the real issues.

Anonymous said: um more simply a non-asian poc equivocating a chinese person for a japanese person :( so like I just need some solid reasons why equivocating chinese people for japanese people is bad D:

thisisnotchina:

oh okay, i think i read it wrong.

the assumption that “all asians are the same” arises from a racist conception of “asia” as a monolithic culture. while it’s true that china has historically exerted considerable cultural and political power over east and southeast asia (most prominently korea, japan, and vietnam, as seen by their current or historical use of hanzi), these countries still maintain their unique cultural practices and national identities. this has been directly responsible for racial violence against asians in the west, such as the murder of vincent chin (a chinese american assumed to be japanese). also, there still exists very strong tensions between japan, china, and korea, due to the legacy of japanese imperialism. the empire of japan colonized many east and southeast asian countries, including korea, taiwan, and parts of china (manchuria), and killed hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of non-japanese asians. to conflate all asian ethnicities is to erase our cultural heritage and our political histories.

Gaza August 19,2014.

"Extended cease-fire ends. Airstrikes resume. More than 30 Palestinians injured and 2  killed in Gaza."

Israel’s Operation Protective Edge

  • 2,019 Palestinians killed [80% civilians] , including 542 children and 251 women from Israeli bombardment
  • 64 Israeli Soldiers killed in combat and 3 civilians
  • 10,223 Palestinians wounded, including 3,486 children and 1,970 women
  •  UNRWA has exhausted its capacity to absorb displaced persons, and overcrowding in shelters risks the outbreak of epidemics.
  • 122 Palestinian families have lost 3 or more members of their family.
  • UNICEF estimates about 373,000 Palestinian children have had some kind of direct traumatic experience and require immediate psycho-social support.
  • 1.5 million people in Gaza have limited or no access to water supplies. 26 health facilities have been damaged.
  • More than 485,000 internally displaced are in need of emergency food assistance.
  • Shelling and bombing have damaged 142 schools — 89 of them run by the United Nations — , and multiple Israeli strikes on Gaza’s only power plant and other infrastructure have left it beyond repair.The cost of reconstruction will run to “hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars,” - Pernille Ironside, the head of the Unicef office in Gaza

All I can say is…wow. Not a good feeling. 
Officer Darren Wilson’s gofundme has more money donated than Michael Brown’s memorial fund. White privilege at it’s finest. 
I don’t usually post about stuff like this, but please share this in hopes of more people donating to Michael Brown’s family. You can find the gofundme page: here.
