Anonymous said: what are your privileges and how do you check them?

skeptikhaleesi:

Well, my main privilege is that I’m whiter than snow, and I check it by not making assumptions about the experiences of POC, and not talking over them and by trying to examine the ways our racist society has shaped my worldview and acknowledging that I benefit from white privilege, and that non-white people have every reason to be angry towards and skeptical of white people. I also try to support and promote the accomplishments and voices of PoC whenever I can and use my white privilege to destabilize white supremacy

Eh idk really what else you want me to say here without writing a novel lol

Charts show how history’s most brilliant people scheduled their days

Based on research from Mason Currey’s Daily Rituals: How Artists Work, Podio created beautiful charts that show how some of modern society’s greatest thinkers, writers, artists and philosophers spent their days. It begins with the earliest risers and reveals how much time each of them spent sleeping, working, socializing, relaxing, exercising and at their day jobs or doing administrative stuff like managing their holdings or paying taxes.

Zanan, a 16-year-old feminist magazine in Iran, relaunches after being shut down for six years. The monthly Zanan, meaning “women,” focused on the concerns of Iranian women, ranging from politics and domestic abuse to plastic surgery. It argued that gender equality was Islamic and that religious literature had been misread and misappropriated by misogynists. The magazine was shut down in 2008 under Iran’s ex President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who termed it a “threat to the psychological security of the society.”

The British Film Industry Institute announced today that projects wishing to receive funding must first meet industry guidelines designed to foster diversity both on-screen and behind the scenes. If money has to talk, at least it’s saying something useful for once.

The new diversity quotas will operate on a “three-tick” principle, and require participating productions to meet at least “two ticks” by showcasing a wider swath of socioeconomic backgrounds as well as disabled persons and individuals of different races and sexual orientations. In addition to qualifying productions for BFI funding, under the new measures producers who meet standards will have an opportunity to enter a lottery to fund greater diversity in their projects.

One can only hope America would get onboard with something like this!

This is definitely a step in the right direction.

Hundreds braved the rain to join the Pride march in Chennai, India.  

For those wondering what the “377” in some of the photos are, Article 377 is a colonial law that calls Homosexuality “Against the order of Nature” and criminalises it.  India is still holding onto this archaic law.  Organisations like Orinam are fighting to get it repealed.

Anonymous said: Can you or shuttersmiley please tell me why there is no such thing as racism against white people?

lookatthewords:

I have some questions for you, actually.

Are you systemically oppressed?

Do you have a history of genocide, enslavement and oppression which still actively leaks and informs your daily life and opportunities?

Is the worse discrimination you’ve experienced being called a cracker in the 6th grade?

Meanwhile;

Whoa, it does not stop

x

Racism against White people does not exist. Me calling you a cracker might hurt your feelings but it could never oppress you. Was never used to oppress you. Your history is being Oppressor, not the oppressed.

Meanwhile you calling me a racial slur only enforces the engraved white is right superiority that is literally seeped in everything, from beauty standards to a human value and innocence. All around the world.

You have a million and one links provided for you. Now go learn.

It’s really not that hard to understand.
