fuck your white body positivity. fuck your cis body positivity. fuck your able-bodied positivity. fuck turning the shame on people, not power.

you’re doing it wrong if you don’t understand the legacies of colonialism and racism in beauty standards, in the states and abroad. if you don’t understand their relationships to eating disorders in poc communities. if you don’t understand how brown and black people struggle to love their racialized bodies.

you’re doing it wrong if you don’t understand how trans people, most especially trans womyn, due to the culture of absolute violence that is reserved specifically for them, perpetuated even by other trans people, struggle to love their bodies in this cissexist world (thanks, white gender binary). if you don’t understand that sometimes, trans people just hate their bodies because they aren’t right at the time, that they will never be able to achieve the bodies that they want. if you don’t understand that trans people will always have a complicated relationship with their bodies.

you’re doing it wrong if you don’t understand that disabled people struggle to love their bodies in this ableist world. if you don’t understand that some disabled people view their bodies as being wrong or bad, and are struggling with making peace with that. if you don’t understand that disabled people will always have a complicated elationship with their bodies.

you are doing your boring feminism so wrong if you don’t understand that you’re hurting the most marginalized.

All whites are racist in this use of the term, because we benefit
from systemic white privilege. Generally whites think of racism
as voluntary, intentional conduct, done by horrible others.
Whites spend a lot of time trying to convince ourselves and
each other that we are not racist. A big step would be for
whites to admit that we are racist and then to consider what to
do about it.

racism & die cis scum

the fact that you are even able to name one form of oppression and throw the weight of a prominent “die cis scum” tattoo behind it is as much a statement about your privilege as it is your oppression. The absence of “die racist scum” or “die colonialist scum” tattoos on your body is jarring

Straight White Male: The Lowest Difficulty Setting There Is – Whatever

Dudes. Imagine life here in the US — or indeed, pretty much anywhere in the Western world — is a massive role playing game, like World of Warcraft except appallingly mundane, where most quests involve the acquisition of money, cell phones and donuts, although not always at the same time. Let’s call it The Real World. You have installed The Real World on your computer and are about to start playing, but first you go to the settings tab to bind your keys, fiddle with your defaults, and choose the difficulty setting for the game. Got it?

Shit White Germans Say to Black Germans

Dieses Video soll die alltäglichen Rassismuserfahrungen Schwarzer Menschen in Deutschland parodieren und kritisieren.
Und ja, es hat eine unterhaltsame Verpackung. Aber wir haben den Weg der Comedy nicht gewählt, um die durch solche Erfahrungen entstandenen Verletzungen zu verleugnen, sondern um sie, sofern das überhaupt möglich ist, positiv zu verarbeiten.
Allen die noch von ihrer eigenen „Weißheit" ergriffen sind, empfehlen wir herzlichst sich den Titel des Videos noch einmal genau durchzulesen.

I sometimes visualize the ongoing cycle of racism as a moving walkway at the airport. Active racist behavior is equivalent to walking fast on the conveyor belt. The person engaged in active racist behaviour has identified with the ideology of White supremacy and is moving with it. Passive racist behaviour is equivalent to standing still on the walk way. No overt effort is being made, but the conveyor belt moves the bystanders along to the same destination as those who are actively walking. Some of the bystanders may feel the motion of the conveyor belt, see the active racists ahead of them, and choose to turn around, unwilling to go to the same destination as the White supremacists. But unless they are walking actively in the opposite direction at a speed faster than the conveyor belt - unless they are actively antiracist - they will find themselves carried along with the others.

You probably can’t make yourself non-racist, but you can make yourself anti-racist. And in the end, being anti-racist is actually more important.

White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack - Peggy McIntosh

As a white person, I realized I had been taught about racism as something that puts others at a disadvantage, but had been taught not to see one of its corollary aspects, white privilege, which puts me at an advantage.
