Hey so there’s this petition petition going around which requires all police to wear a camera. Although it doesn’t do anything to stop the real problem (i.e. racism), it at least would help with a violent and often deadly symptom of it, that being police brutality. The problem with this petition is that there is frequently an error preventing you from signing it, and when you finally do sign, they now require email validation, which can take anywhere from 1-3 hours (I had to wait a very long time for my verification email, didn’t see it until the next day). This seems very intentional, reminds me a lot of voter ID, just the gov finding ways to make it harder for oppressed groups to be heard. I know it’s not as easy as a simple click anymore but please don’t give up on this petition. Check back every now and then if you’re getting an error, and make sure you give an email you know you will be checking often.

About 30,000 to go, let’s keep this one moving

When people dismiss concerns about diverse representation (the “best” examples in prominent media often still being less diverse than what should statistically be average) with language like “we’re not trying to cater to [a particular demographic]”, they’re revealing the fundamental truth that white heteronormative male-dominated stories are not something that “just happens”, they are not something that happens because “that’s how the story goes”, they are not the result of “hiring the best actors” or “giving the audience what they want”… or at least, not the whole audience.

The people who make these statements are in the business of serving up stories, and they make choices about what stories to serve and to whom they will be served.

They might not think about the fact that they’re catering to a select audience to begin with, but as soon as you propose that they shift their focus, this is the kind of language they find that best describes how they see such a shift.

Catering to.

"who cares about representation in video games, video games are meant for escapism"

how exactly is it escapism to switch from a world where white cis men are in charge to…….. a world where white cis men are in charge

also what does that say about you when you want to “escape” to a world completely devoid of poc and women

And queer folk.

and where are poc, women and queer folk supposed to ‘escape’ to

Help the fight against police brutality!

You should definitely do this, but please be safe and knowledgeable about it! Here are some resources for how to safely film/photograph police brutality, as well as information on YOUR rights as you do so:

Please be aware that different states have different laws on the matter.  Check into them so you can know you specific laws, and what to expect if you film the police.  Also check with your state’s chapter of the ACLU; many of them have tips on this matter, and some have pocket foldouts of your rights that you can use to convince the police that no, you aren’t doing anything wrong.

Stay woke.

  • Me: Did you find everything ok today Sir?
  • Male Customer: Yeah everything was fine, but prices on the cat food just keep going up! I remember when it was only .30 a can! But I bet you don't, you're like what...20?
  • Me: 21, but yes.
  • Male Customer: God you're young, I bet you'd never go out with someone my age, unless you have some Daddy issues
  • Me: ...........
  • Male Customer: so do you like working here? Are you in school?
  • Me: Your total today is 21.38 Sir.
  • Male Customer: Are you seeing anyone?
  • Me: ......Cash or Credit Sir?
  • Male Customer: When do you get off work?
  • Male co-worker comes up next to me: Everything ok?
  • Male Customer: Yeah we're fine
  • Male Co-worker: Actually I think you're being really rude
  • Male Customer: What are you her boyfriend?
  • Male co-worker: No I'm not. And even if I was, why would it matter? Her job is to ring up your items, make sure your shopping experience was pleasant and give you change. You're making really creepy comments to a young woman you don't even know at a cash register, it's not ok.
  • Male Customer: You can't talk to me that way! I want to speak to your manager.
  • Me: It's really ok, everything is Ok
  • Male Co-worker: No no, I'll go ahead and call our FEMALE boss up here to address any grievances you might have *Sir*
  • Male Customer: slams down 25 dollars grabs his bags and leave*
  • Male Co-worker: You don't even have to take anyone's shit here. If anyone even looks at you funny, pick up that phone, call a manager, call me, call another co-worker and it will be handled. You are a valued employee and you deserve to feel safe and respected at work by *everyone*
  • privileged people: the problem isnt the actual problem!! the problem is that youre not reacting to the problem the way i feel you should be reacting to the problem!! even though im not experiencing the problem in any way therefore i really shouldnt dictate the way the problem should be solved but--- HEY LISTEN TO ME YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO ME THATS EQUALITY!!!
