Can someone who speaks spanish explain to me the use of the word ‘real,’ which I believed meant ‘royal?’
when i see a clothing item i like and check the price tag
I literally found a $1000 jacket at Macy’s the other day
There has only been five female characters comfirmed playable compared to fifteen male characters.
you can play as foxes and pikachus and shit and yet adding some more female characters is a STEP 2 FAR
I’d love the option to pick between a female pikachu and a male pikachu! I think that’d be cute c:
you can only play as female pikachus and jigglypuffs, that’d show ‘em!
dont worry kiddo, when tumblr is telling you youre a piece of shit for existing as who you are, you can just log off and go back to your life of luxury
come here, i need to talk to you for a second
being white, cisgendered, and heterosexual does not mean you have never struggled or suffered or known hardship. obviously that’s not true, and obviously you can have a pretty shitty life and still be white, cisgendered, and heterosexual.
but here’s the thing: even if you have struggled or suffered or known hardship, you have never struggled or suffered or known hardship on the basis of your race, gender identity or sexual orientation. that doesn’t mean you’ve had it better or worse (though i would hazard you have had it better, since there are very few people who will outright murder you for being a fiscally challenged white kid). the word “privileged” doesn’t mean “materially wealthy” and it doesn’t apply universally. example: i’m white, and i’m cis, but im also queer and a woman and not that materially wealthy. this doesn’t mean i’m not privileged by my cis-ness and my whiteness. it also doesn’t mean that i don’t know the hardships that come along with being a queer woman without a lot of money. what it means is that i know certain hardships but i don’t know others — some of who i am entitles me to things that others do not or can not have, based on institutionalized systems of oppression of which i am inevitably a part.
i understand that the word “privileged” carries certain connotations with it — material wealth, a carefree, happy-go-lucky lifestyle filled with candy and unicorns. but that’s not what privilege looks like. privilege is being able to go through life with the assumption that you will not be discriminated against for your race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. it’s being able to call the police or approach an authority figure without fear for your own safety. it’s being able to expect representation in all forms of media, and respect and understanding from your peers. “privilege” manifests in many, many ways, just as hardship does.
privilege doesn’t mean you have an easy life. it means you have certain attributes that give you an advantage over people who don’t. that isn’t your fault, and it isn’t something you need to feel guilty about having, but you need to be aware of it so that you aren’t ignorant to its affect on other people, and so that you’re aware of the fact that it is something special that you got and other people didn’t. your privilege comes at the cost of someone else. you didn’t ask for it, but that’s how it goes. you didn’t ask to be poor either, but that’s where you’re at — and do you think that someone with more money than you doesn’t have more power? more representation? more privilege?
being poor and living in an abusive household and being white, cis, and hetero are not things that are mutually exclusive. you can be all of those things. very few people are purely privileged. but thinking that you can’t be poor and possibly have advantages over someone who is a person of color, or trans, or queer is a mistake. that doesn’t mean you don’t have hard times. it doesn’t mean your struggles aren’t valid. but it does mean that they are not the struggles that other people have.
and that? is a privilege.
This comic is basically implying that her experiences invalidate those of others and that’s not anyone’s point at all. Your experiences don’t devalue anyone else’s and theirs don’t devalue your experience. Your life can be tough. Your individual existence might be more difficult than another specific person’s as a queer woman of color, but the point is that each person’s experience is there own. I will never know what it’s like to be queer, a person of color, or a woman. That’s my privilege, that I don’t share in that experience. Similarly, if I never have to experience an abusive relationship or living on food stamps, that’s a privilege.
It’s like in Kindergarten, there’s the chart on the board with ‘line leader,’ ‘first to lunch,’ ‘caboose,’ ‘attendance taker,’ ‘goldfish feeder’ ‘door holder’ On your birthday you get to pick which privilege you want. All the privileges are different and you can’t be the line leader AND the caboose. If you’re the line leader, you get to talk to the teacher, if you’re the caboose, you don’t have to wait for the rest of the line to process before you start eating. Everyone’s privilege is different.

Nice little map.
Love this. … though it’s still incredibly strange to me that Gotham is located in New Jersey. I’m almost used to it.
