EVERYONE PLEASE. PAY ATTENTION. Especially if you’re Asian.
On January 30th, 2014, California Senate just passed SCA-5, a legislation that would repeal portions of California Proposition 209.
In condensed words, this bill allows schools to DISCRIMINATE AGAINST ASIANS.
People want to believe gender is something that’s essential, and people repeat these essentialist ideas all the time. ‘Oh, women do that’ and ‘Oh, men do that’ and the reality is that all women don’t anything. We as individuals do what we do, you know, and sometimes that’s informed by gender and sometimes it’s just who we are. And I think all that just makes people really, really uncomfortable because they don’t want to think about who they are.
don't talk to your parents like that! they deserve unconditional respect, love, and obedience even though i've never met them and have no idea what kind of people they are
Do you want me to call your PARENTS and tell them how you were behaving? *assumes parents aren't abusive*
family is awesome!
blood is thicker than water!
your parents love you!
Adult media producers:
*create thousands of stories where families love each other ~~no matter what~~*
It's really easy to get out of abusive families! just tell an adult :)
*don't teach kids how to recognize abuse*
*normalize physical abuse as 'discipline'*
It's hard to take anything kids say seriously haha
*takes abusive parents' word over their kids'*
