Wow, where do I fucking begin?

Listen up because this is going to be a shitload and I don’t fucking care because I stopped an amazing NerdPanel of Badass Women for this absolute shit. I got updates on my phone where I’m literally fuming. I’m not putting this in a read-more, everyone needs to read this.

I’m so done with the sexism and male entitlement of this season and how it’s literally ruining a girl’s chances of playing this game that she wanted to do. Big Brother isn’t made for men, it’s made for all people and you have got to respect that. Everyone. Not just your male entitled ass.

That being said, Caleb Reynolds is up on the block now and you bet your fucking ass I’m about to cut his head off from the chopping block. 

The fact that a women who has REPEATEDLY said she doesn’t like him, nor wanna be with him and has REPEATEDLY proven that she can play this game for herself should be enough for you to back off. Amber does not owe Caleb anything, she is not leading him on, she is not doing anything wrong. She has said she doesn’t like him. 

Caleb is horrible. He is literally ruining this girls game along with all of the guys because she won’t date him. Zach is going to call out Amber because she doesn’t like Caleb. Because Caleb bitched about it so much that Amber is going to be verbally attacked because she said she doesn’t like a person. They’re putting her up as if to teach her a lesson for not liking Caleb.

People have constantly bashed on Amber and most of the time it’s to due with her not liking Caleb back. A women does not own anyone anything, same goes for a man or any other gender. Nobody owes anybody anything because you like them. No means no.

So Caleb you can ship your ass back to where you came from (or even further away) and you can get off your damn high horse because Amber does not like you one bit.

She does not owe you anything, she’s playing this game by herself but because you can’t accept that a girl doesn’t like you now you are ruining her chances at this because she’s getting backdoored. You, Caleb, are saying you WANT her to feel small and intimidated by you because you can’t deal with a girl not liking you. You are treating her as if she’s an animal. You are being horrible. You are a horrible human being. Nobody should be treated that way.

This is not okay.

You are ATTACKING a girl and making her feel bad because she simply doesn’t like a person and is now ignoring them because he’s basically obsessed with her.

Take this as a tip and learn from it, women are not objects. We are not toys you can throw around. We are not things you can belittle and make fun of. And we do not owe anyone anything. We do not owe baby, country boys who can’t take no for an answer one bit. Good day.

Three dimensional characters for the win.

"It feels better, right?" is the part that gets me, because it explains everything about Flash ever.

malikmydick:

Caleb is the biggest joke ever and it’s disgusting that he thinks that Amber should sit on the block and be voted out simply because she does not want anything more than a friendship with him…. What’s even more disgusting is that all of the guys are helping Zach plan his attack on Amber to make her feel bad and I’m so embarrassed for them cause they honestly think that America will love it when America will think they are all complete douchebags

I need white people to stop pretending consent was possible during slavery.

Stop lying to yourselves that those black cousins are the result of illicit love affairs & grasp that slaves could not say no.

When consent is not an option, when you’re only seen as 3/5ths of a human being & you have no legal standing? You can’t say yes.

I need white America to sit down for a sec. Look into the faces of black Americans with the same last names & figure it the fuck out.

Our ancestors were raped by your ancestors. Regularly. Some of the kids were treated kindly. Most were not. They were sold.

White mistresses punished the slaves for “tempting” master & congratulated themselves on that bloody work. Read the narratives.

Not the cleaned up ones either. Read Incidents in The Life of A Slave Girl & understand that Mammy was a victim, not the one who loved you.

She couldn’t care for her kids, couldn’t choose her husband or their father most of the time. She was a slave.

Millions of people died on the Middle Passage. Millions more died here at the hands of your ancestors. Own that.

Now you want to sing Kumbaya & keep oppressing our communities & erasing our contributions. Spare me the tired bullshit.

Male slaves fared no better. There’s a long history of them being raped, tortured & killed too. That was slavery. Stop romanticizing it.

Our children were fed to alligators as bait (feel free to look that up) died of starvation or exposure & that was slavery too. Yep, we were livestock & you use sickly livestock as bait.

Stop watching Gone With The Wind & fantasizing about beautiful plantations if you can’t accept what happened on those plantations.

House slaves had it better in the sense of access to food & possibly better treatment, but they were still slaves.

14 year old slave girls weren’t falling in love with the men who could beat them & everyone they loved to death.

Read the tales of enslaved women who killed their children to spare them. Read about people beaten to death as an example.

Sally Hemings could have left Jefferson in Paris. Of course her entire family was still in his power. And his “love”? Didn’t free her. Ever.

Go look at the pictures of former slaves backs. Whipped until they bled & left to scar so they were maimed for life & couldn’t run.

Also before you talk about the cleaned up narratives, remember that the people relating their stories knew lynching was always possible.

Records of slavery were deliberately destroyed so that former owners wouldn’t have to pay anyone.

That “peculiar institution” was generations of blood, pain, & terror. That’s what built America. Never forget that.

Now stop talking about anyone’s white ancestors like they deserve the fucking credit for the success of people descended from slaves.

American slavery began in 1619. June 19, 1865 was the last official day of slavery. Do the math on how long it takes to heal that wound.

After slavery was officially over? Black codes & Jim Crow laws followed. America’s history of oppression is longer than that of freedom.

Also before any dumb motherfuckers land in my mentions. I have a degree in history. I will read you to filth & bury you in sources.

Trust & believe there is no country here for people who want to romanticize a system that is still grinding away at my community.

All this fluffy fucking talk about American history to coddle white kids feelings & engender patriotism? You won’t get it here.

My ancestors built this country, I served this country & I will tell the damned truth about this country. Don’t like it? Fuck you.

Now let me get in my feelings about slavery before Africans were brought here. Because we weren’t the first people enslaved.

We were deliberately sought out for our skill sets & resistance to disease. Know why we were resistant? We’d had contact for years.

All of that “My ancestors never owned slaves so it has nothing to do with me?” Go look at those NDN ancestors again. See how many were free.

While you’re in there checking that out? Look up those old country ancestors & see how many benefited from slavery indirectly.

Also while we’re talking about NDN relatives? Yo, learn a name besides Cherokee. Better yet, learn about the genocidal tactics they faced.

Look up immigrant groups becoming white in America. Find out who had to bleed so they could gain access to white privilege.

Let’s really talk about the Red Summer of 1919 & how it wasn’t an unusual occurrence. Tulsa, Rosewood? They were just famous.

Let’s talk about welfare & who could access it. Hell let’s talk about who is collecting more of it right now.

Let’s talk about the primary beneficiaries of affirmative action (spoiler! White women!) & what it means to attack black people instead.

Shit, let’s get into the Great Depression & the Great Recession & who is hurting the most financially through both.

Let’s talk about conditions on reservations, in the inner city, & the violence faced by POC who try to leave those areas.

Hell, let’s talk about why we don’t see shows that reflect the American population set in the past, present, or future.

Go read Columbus’ diaries & see what “civilization” really meant to the people he encountered.

For that matter go read up on King Leopold & the Congo. I’ll wait while you cry.

That’s the thing about whiteness as a social construct in America. It’s not about white people, it’s about white power over others.

When we’re talking about white privilege? We’re talking about what it takes to shape this society based on oppression.

America is a young country with a lot of power because of genocide, slavery, & continuing oppression. Individuals build institutions.

All of these conversations aren’t about bringing out white guilt, they’re about ending this institution developed over the generations.

Also let’s be clear that America is sick with this ish across the political spectrum. It may manifest differently but it exists everywhere.

Before I go, let me also suggest that people who are curious about anything I tweeted about take a tour through Google with terms.

It’s not that I won’t answer questions, but there are books out there that I think everyone should read on slavery, whiteness, & America.

Courtenay McKay created a series of posters for the Gender Based Violence Prevention Project (GBVPP) at the University of Alberta to spread awareness about rape culture.

The Gender Based Violence Prevention Project is a new project of the Students’ Union that promotes a campus free of gender based violence. Gender Based Violence exists in both visible and invisible ways on our campus and affects the lives of many University students, staff, faculty, and community members. Through education, awareness, and institutional change, we are striving to create a campus free of gender based violence where everyone can feel safe and supported.”
