if i had a dollar for every time i witnessed a white person be challenged about racist statements or images on tumblr only to have them delete their posts or change their urls… i’d be going out for dinner every night this week.
in the era of just simply deleting posts without apologizing or clarifying, or changing your url, where the fuck is accountability? and these are people who present themselves as fucking “third-wave feminists.”
get the fuck out.
naive, rude, ignorant chicken shits.
we’ve screencapped your racist diatribes, assholes. we won’t forget it.
edited to add: i appreciate your feedback, but i think some of you aren’t getting it. this is not like 1 time situations where one individual says something that “might be interpreted as misguided and maybe they just don’t know.” these are folks who call themselves riot grrls and critically minded feminists and/or fat positive folks, which is why i ever come across their blogs in the first place.
i’m kind a lot of the time, but i don’t think these situations merit kindness.
