A quick value study for a fairy tale assignment.
I decided to tell the story of Jack and the Beanstalk as a Norse myth. Jack is the child of Odin’s two ravens and instead of a beanstalk he climbs Yggdrasil (the World Tree).
do u think aggressive white athiests can ever understand that for many people of color not only our belief in a deity but also our organized religious spaces are essential sources of comfort and strength when facing the institutionalized and cultural racism thrown at us every day?
that abandoning our faith would mean assimilating into a culture that actively dehumanizes us?
spoiler alert: no
Tumblr really doesn’t seem to care much about disabled people and ableism. Seriously, I’ve seen multiple posts with 1000+ notes ripping at the TIMES list (and damn rightfully so!), however I’ve only seen one about the fact that the man that made the horrendous “I Am Autism" (major tw for ableism in the video) was on the list, and it only has 15 notes.
white nb people have a really fucked up definition of what binarism is lol
binarism is a feature of colonialism and western imperialism in which poc (namely black people) are forced to conform with the white gender binary system
its not the invisibility of nonbinary people in society, thats just called nonbinary erasure (like refusing to use gender neutral pronouns, say stuff like “both genders” etc)
before colonialism came in and enslaved poc, they were already expressing their genders in ways that european white people didnt understand and forced them to identify as either man or woman and entirely erased the genders specific to those cultures, wiping out a large part of individualism and expression in poc societies
