A radical feminist critique of dentistry

  • Teeth are hard, white protrusions into soft fleshy sockets, often used for intimidation and violence — sound familiar??
  • Dental “tools” are just proxy phalluses used to act out dioramas of sexual violence on submissive orifices
  • Dentists use their oppressive influence to force you to apply mechanical force and lab-created chemicals to your mouth, to privilege your patriarchal teeth over your feminine gums and prevent your gums from reaching their natural yonic state of oozing blood

Why white people making “white people” jokes is a form of appropriation

  • It is a form of orientalism and “noble savage” worship.  PoC culture is not yours to use in this way.  You are not allowed to celebrate it, because it’s not yours.
  • It’s just a hidden way of begging for ally cookies.
  • Lena Durham does it and she’s already totes problematic.

Signalboost this because it’s important.  We must stop white people from making white people jokes in 2014

ENGLISH CLASS taught me how to express myself clearly and understand others
SCIENCE CLASS taught me how to observe, predict and test the otherwise unexplainable phenomena that make up the world
HISTORY CLASS taught me that the world has billions of stories that continue to resonate and affect us today
ART CLASS taught me the value of self-expression and craft
BUT THANK GOD THE MAGIC ALIEN WAVED HIS DOOHICKEY AT THE PAPIER-MACHE MONSTER FOR 22 MINUTES AND SAVED THE WORLD WITH THE POWER OF LOVE

Wouldn’t it be nice if those classes actually taught those things.
SCIENCE CLASS taught me that other people will decide my actions and I must do them even if I think they are cruel (dissection) or useless (memorizing dates). Independent thinking is not just frowned upon but punished.
HISTORY CLASS taught me that white straight cis non-disabled men have the power and everyone else better obey or die, that we’ve always been powerless (a lie) and always will be (a lie very effective at making us ineffective).
LITERATURE CLASS taught me that to be a famous writer, you have to write about boringass white default men who moan about their sadness or lack of ability to make a decision or otherwise suffer purely existentially. Include some manly killing and a tautological love interest who must have no real personhood but be unattainable anyway. Then you’re called brilliant, otherwise don’t bother.
ART CLASS taught me that there was a little world most people ignored where you could actually express yourself. But if you wanted to get shit done you’d have to make it a small part of your life, because those in power are immune to changes inspired by art, yet they’re the only ones who can afford it. I knew this as a child because my family couldn’t afford even the tools we used in class.
MATH CLASS was where I learned I was bad at math because I’m female, even though factually I’m excellent at it (which I didn’t learn until decades later in a combined gwst/math class). It’s also where I learned math led to nothing interesting, even though factually it is the basis for many fascinating fields.

Hmm. All those things are still more important than magic boys or vampires

White girl on youtube: “I don’t like going to bed with my hair wet because I don’t want it to look like an afro when I wake up.”

You fuckin’ wish you were lucky enough to wake up with hair that nice. Bye. 

Good for her!! She’s taking care not to even accidentally appropriate the cultural currency of PoC, unlike you, who are allowing her to just steal whatever hair she wants.  Shame. On. You.

Anonymous asked: ahahahahahhah I can't even tell if you're trolling or you're really this retarded. What kind of a sad life do you lead? Do you just sit on kickstarter all day and masturbate to the thought of the projects failing? You're a pathetic excuse for a human being.

CAN WE STOP PITTING WOMEN AGAINST EACH OTHER? THAT WOULD BE NICE.

BUT WHAT WE CAN DO IS NOTE THAT THE WOMAN OF COLOR SOLD ALL OF THESE RECORDS WITHOUT ACCESSING THE NEOLIBERAL ORDER IN THE SAME WAY AS THESE WHITE WOMEN; SHE DID SO WITHOUT BEING A RACIST, A TOKENIZER, OBJECTIFYING OF OTHER WOMEN’S BODIES, OR PURPORTING TO SPEAK FOR OTHER GROUPS OF MARGINALIZED, OPPRESSED-IN-WAYS-SHE-IS-NT GROUPS OF PEOPLE; SHE CREATED THE FEMINIST ALBUM OF CONTEMPORENEITY BY HARVESTING BUT NOT DAMAGING TODAY’S SALIENT CULTURAL CAPITAL, WITHOUT HAVING TO SHAME, DEGRADE, OR REJECT ANYONE FOR LIKING AND BEING ATTRACTED TO POP CULTURAL PHENOMENA AND EPHEMERA.

looks like these white-ass motherfuckers are the real ownage music people
