"If you have to have someone who looks like you in the media in order for you to relate then maybe you’re the one who’s racist"
"children don’t see/care about race"
"Color doesn’t matter! It’s about the actor/story!"
"there are bigger issues to talk about than representation"
"they whitewashed because they need to make a profit and attract their target audience"
"It’s a European fairytale/story so of course the characters will be white!"
"whitewashing isn’t real"
"they considered and picked the best actor for the job"
(The best actor? More like the best we can do at this time.)
(It’s not the best actor when you exclude a racially ambiguous role to one race.)
"why do we need minorities in European stories!? they wouldn’t do a story about Africa with white actors!”

from my anthro textbook. yes please keep telling us radfems that gender is a ~feeling~ and that the words of many scholars and scientists are invalid
I am sorry, I kept not doing this but simply couldn’t help it.
Your textbook is written for cis folk. Specifically white male cis folk. And you image proves it.
Or did you miss how women are cultural and men are society?

Radical feminists are okay with being excluded from society, if it means further subjugating trans women.
~MF derse: see this shit is why these pseudo-anthropologists/biologists get me
i am still w8ing on someone who can explain to me exactly what “makes” someone a social construct, scientifically speaking
we literally have gender studies as a separate discipline for several reasons

Be the better person. Call out the assholes.
This is not an AU or an RP Homestuck blog.
This is a blog dedicated to taking responsibility for all the horrible shit (with a particular emphasis on racism and ableism) that is rampant within Homestuck fandom. We can't pretend that it's not our responsibility to just let this pass by—the oppressive behavior of Homestuck fans has caused many people, fans and non-fans alike, to feel downright unsafe around anything Homestuck-related. This is OUR SHIT to clean up.
And this isn't just about fan stuff, either. Andrew Hussie is by no means exempt from being called out on his bullshit, since he's spewed fuckton upon fuckton of it, whether through characterization or plots within Homestuck itself or personal statements he's made.
It's time to make this fandom safe.
