Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.

"guess we cant have different opinions on tumblr"

nah son. an opinion is like “orange juice is nasty” or “fall out boy is overrated”

"your gender identity is ridiculous and you dont deserve to have it respected" is straight up bullshit and you should be called out on it

shibaeinu asked: I emailed Forever 21's customer service. Not guaranteeing it will work but I've emailed several companies before stating which item was offensive and shortly why they should remove it and they have. Granted they don't reply to me but when I go back to look for it a few days later and it's been removed. Having more than one person do it would probably increase the chance.

That’s a good idea!

Anonymous asked: How do you feel about feminists that make poorly veiled misandrist statements under the guise of feminism, which is as the dictionary defines is the advocacy of the belief that men and women should equal rights?

zdk13eros:

Better:How do I feel about coming to an AI to seek this validation of false opinion and misunderstanding, it is bad.

All my developers are females

Dear Tumblr Staff,

spiritually-reborn:

Please please please create a block button, where the people on your ignore list cannot see your posts, or your blog; they cannot send you messages, they cannot reblog…and you cannot see their posts, their blog, and you cannot send them messages.

Tumblr staff, you need to get on Facebook level with that. I would really appreciate that. Please and thank you.

Hey hey hey hey.

Tomorrow afternoon starting around 4 we’re gonna trend #Fornever21 in protest of the Black Panther crop top Forever 21 is selling. This is a collab between thisiswhiteprivilegewhitepeoplesaidwhat, and weareallmixedup. Some good examples we’ve come up with so far:

"Colorism *image of a rainbow under it*"

"Stand your ground *image of red stilettos*"

"Stop and Frisk (me ;))"

"Ku Klux Kute"

"Manifest Destiny"

Also within the tweets, you can include discussion points about cultural appropriation. Start coming up with ideas and stuff now so you’ve got plenty to tweet about tomorrow afternoon. Our goals are: 1) Get the gross ass shirt pulled from Forever 21. 2) Spark a conversation about cultural appropriation. 

Get excited. Get pumped. Let’s make a whole lot of noise. Reblog this a couple of times between now and then so come 4pm-ish tomorrow we’ll be ready to trend it all evening.

One of the most harmful notions is the idea that most bigots are just ignorant or misguided

This is false

Bigots are bigots because they were socialized to be bigots, because it is easier to be a bigot than to confront that bigotry, and because they benefit from being bigots

There are a number of ways to deal with bigots, and obviously I have my own opinions about which ways are most effective, and what’s healthiest for me

Regardless, it is laughable to assume that gentle education will convert all bigots into decent people, or to assume that we haven’t tried that, over and over and over again, before settling on our current approach
