"fabulous" isn't my middle name, but it should be. this is mostly a mirror of my blog (jaythenerdkid.wordpress.com), a sanctuary for my inner fangirl and a place where I share pretty things made by people more talented than me.

This is such a boss pic. 
If I had a posse- we would look like this. 

They all look so epic. They literally look like they’re about to take down an army and come back victorious. 

DAMN

Also, there aren't enough smutty fic with dominant Mindy! It's basically canon that she likes being in charge, so I'd love to see a fic where that happens :)

But there is *some*!

I agree though, Mindy as the boss is good fun and I’d love to see more people tackle it! I’m tagging in some people who’ve done a little smutty fic in recent months in case they feel inspired to add more to the collection nakedmonkey mindyanddannyfineanddandy jaythenerdkid jsmapdi

Why I hate the term African-American

Let me preface this by saying, no, I am not a white man here to “whitesplain”(Seriously with your stupid made up words.) something to you. I’m a black man. And over the years I’ve been called an African-American, but that bugs me. Fuck your political correctness, you’re black.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but as I understand it, when Africans immigrate to the US they don’t become African-American, they become Kenyan-American, Ghanian-American, etc. African American refers to a specific ethnicity, namely the descendants of slaves in the United States. This makes sense given that descendants of slaves in the US don’t know where in Africa they are from and instead would identify with the continent, whereas African immigrants would identify with the country they came from (the same way a Caribbean American would identify with Jamaica, Martinique, etc.). Because of the way we construct race and ethnicity in the US, people who are not African American often get folded into the label, but that doesn’t mean that the term can’t have specificity or validity.

It may also surprise you to know that African American is not some made up PC term but one coined and adopted by African Americans themselves as part of a larger struggle for self-identification and determination. Feel free not to identify that way, but trying to throw it under the bus as some bullshit is lame. Nothing wrong with people wanting to affirm a connection to the place where they came from even if they only have a vague idea of it.

see, I knew this would be bad when he started by trashing “stupid made up words.”

Wow. You repeating a sentence multiple times totally made me want to retract my statement.

it’s not my place to tell anyone what to call themselves. I just wanted to point out that your ideas about language are fucking absurd and wrong and that you’re a patronising shitheap for talking about terms coined to describe acts of structural violence and oppression as though they’re less valid because they were coined this century instead of five thousand years ago. you can carry on being wrong about race all you want. I see black folks are already schooling you on that and do not need my help.

My own people are schooling me on an opinion. Which isn’t going to change. And neither is my opinion on language.

"Whitesplain" has nothing to do with structual violence. It’s a made up word. Made up by my fellow people of color who seem to be afraid of white people.

congratulations on adamantly refusing to stop being wrong. you must be so proud.

Nicholas Lord, a Navy sailor since 2008 currently on active duty, is under investigation after threatening to rape a young woman who is a Navy recruit.
The young woman posted a photo of herself on Facebook, captioning it to say she’s proud of how she’s working hard to get in shape for the Navy, and she’s excited to be leaving soon. The photo was shared on the page for her Delayed Entry Program for her fellow Navy recruits.
Nicholas Lord, who is not a current recruit and who has been serving in the Navy since 2008, then commented:
You’ll end up pregnant real soon you fucking wh***. If I could and I knew you, I’d hold you down and rape you.
The next day, Lord gloated about his threat on his Facebook page, updating his status to say he’d been “trolling feminist pages.” In case it needs to be said, the Facebook page for a Navy program is not a “feminist page.” It’s a Navy recruiting page. (x) (x)
I don’t know what the Navy’s punishment system is like, but I hope he gets the worst possible. I hope they investigate his past history in the military, too. If he’s bold enough to outright threaten female recruits, under his own name, on public, Navy-run social media, I seriously doubt he hasn’t harassed and threatened female sailors. He may even have raped them.
Especially given the military’s problem with letting men get away with harassment and rape, they need to severely punish him.

Send it viral, and he will see ramifications.

If you only reblog one thing today I hope it’s this.

Drop the victim act. The most powerful man in the world is black. You are not in a position of second class citizenship any more. Jesus, you should come to Manchester & see how many fucked up weird little white boys walk around the streets 'acting black' - like the stereotypical black boy we see on the American TV. 'Hey Dawg' & all that shit. Society loves POC. Also let me say, as a 1/4 Nigerian, 1/2 Italian @ 1/4 English girl - if you ever called me 'pale face' TO my face, I'd fucking kill you.

whitepeoplesaidwhat:

So you’re saying white boys in Manchester acting black is indicative of society loving people of color…

hmm…
