Saying things like “we’ve gone from white hoods to business suits” is one way to seem to speak to contemporary racism’s less vocal, yet still insidious nature. But it does a disservice to the public understanding of racism, and in the process undercuts the mission of drawing attention to contemporary racism’s severity.

It wasn’t the KKK that wrote the slave codes. It wasn’t the armed vigilantes who conceived of convict leasing, postemancipation. It wasn’t hooded men who purposefully left black people out of New Deal legislation. Redlining wasn’t conceived at a Klan meeting in rural Georgia. It wasn’t “the real racists” who bulldozed black communities in order to build America’s highway system. The Grand Wizard didn’t run COINTELPRO in order to dismantle the Black Panthers. The men who raped black women hired to clean their homes and care for their children didn’t hide their faces.

The ones in the hoods did commit violent acts of racist terrorism that shouldn’t be overlooked, but they weren’t alone. Everyday citizens participated in and attended lynchings as if they were state fairs, bringing their children and leaving with souvenirs. These spectacles, if not outright endorsed, were silently sanctioned by elected officials and respected members of the community.

It’s easy to focus on the most vicious and dramatic forms of racist violence faced by past generations as the site of “real” racism. If we do, we can also point out the perpetrators of that violence and rightly condemn them for their actions. But we can’t lose sight of the fact that those individuals alone didn’t write America’s racial codes. It’s much harder to talk about how that violence was only reinforcing the system of political, economic and cultural racism that made America possible. That history indicts far more people, both past and present.

CATS HAVE LIMITED OBJECT PERMANENCE AND DON’T ALWAYS UNDERSTAND THAT TWO DIFFERENT DOORS CAN LEAD TO THE SAME ROOM

#SO IS THIS WHY MY CATS ASK TO BE LET IN BECAUSE IT’S RAINING #AND THEN IMMEDIATELY GO TO THE OTHER DOOR AND ASK TO BE LET OUT AGAIN? 

YUP, THAT’S WHY. CATS ARE BIG DUMMIES AND OFTEN SEE NO REASON WHY TWO DIFFERENT DOORS SHOULD LEAD TO THE SAME PLACE, SO THEY FIGURE THEY’LL CHECK IF IT’S ALSO RAINING IN THE OTHER OUTSIDE BEHIND THE OTHER DOOR. 

WHEN THE PROPRIETOR OF THIS BLOG WAS A CHILD, THE KITCHEN LED INTO THE DINING ROOM, WHICH LED INTO THE LIVING ROOM, WHICH LEAD INTO THE FRONT HALLWAY, WHICH LED BACK INTO THE KITCHEN, SO WHEN THE CATS WERE HUNGRY, THEY WOULD CHECK THEIR BOWLS, SEE THAT THEY WERE EMPTY, AND WALK ALL THE WAY AROUND THE HOUSE TO SEE IF THE OTHER BOWLS IN THE OTHER KITCHEN WERE ALSO EMPTY.

I’m not saying this theory is wrong.  I just want to propose “cats are total assholes” as an alternate theory.  Teach the controversy please.

the problem with publicly loving & identifying with jenny schecter is that “jenny schecter” is shorthand for “horrible self-obsessed drama queen” for 99% of people who watched the l word, and like i get it, but 1) i sort of fundamentally don’t understand people who don’t love jenny schecter-type characters, annnnnd i often think about how her behaviour would have been received if her character was gender-flipped, like see: fan response to walter white-type characters, for example, and 2) as badly as jenny’s character was written in the last two seasons, i had no trouble accepting that jenny’s more batshit self-involved behaviour was a direct response to the trauma she’d experienced: she’d tried self-destruction and it didn’t work out for her, so she finally decided she was going to get what she wanted, take no prisoners, and get the right fucking colour ribbons for her dog’s fur, damn it, and 3) season 6 was a shitshow and mia kirschner’s brilliant comedic timing was the only redeeming factor

This is mostly a Jenny Schecter-positive blog, for those who didn’t already know.

I dont know but for me Jenny was very annoying at first, then she evolved and wasn’t as selfcentered, naive and manipulative as the first seasons and then the writers threw that away and she was more manipulative and selfabsorbed then before. I didnt like Tina either for most of the show but at least she became more and more developt as the series progressed. And I think that is was bugged me the most because we got to see what a great character Jenny could have been (should have been and was at one point) and then it was swept away again

But I think that is OP’s point: she turned more manipulative and self-obsessed because of the trauma she faced. That’s how they developed her. Think about how she was like in Season 1. She was this scared naive girl who knew nothing beyond her small town life and her college boyfriend. Then she moves to LA and meets all these lesbians who radically change her life. She realizes she is attracted to girls and develops independence. She learns to stick up for herself more and be more confident. She’s happy. That’s what her cutting her hair short in the beginning of season 2 symbolizes. She wants to begin a new life, start over. And she also wants to be noticed for the first time in her life. Before she wanted to be invisible. That’s a big deal. But things start to get worse for her. These repressed memories of her being gang raped when she was a young child start to resurface. And how her mom failed to protect her. Tim is about to leave, which feels a lot like abandonment to her because he is now the only connection she has to her old life, and before he goes he rapes her. While she is still dealing with her past rape. Marina attempts suicide and is fleeing town, which Jenny probably blames herself for. Carmen starts using Jenny to get to Shane, which plants the idea in Jenny’s head that she’s unwanted, unloveable. You can see how this occurs to her when she watches that video of Shane and Carmen in the kitchen (“jenny wouldn’t know the real deal if it bit her in the ass” “Jenny is so trapped in her darkness I think she likes it in there”). She has always been an outsider. Even with her new lesbian friends she is the odd one out. They all judged her or alienated her in some way at some point in the show. In the end they downright hate her. After all this she becomes self-obsessed. She only thinks about herself and what she needs. Is this wrong after all she’s been though? I don’t think so. No one else cares about her so she has to. And she becomes manipulative. She never gets what she wants and she realizes she never will if she continues being the sweet little Midwestern girl that she’s been throughout the series. So she becomes tougher and smarter. She starts using other people, and virtually stops caring how her actions affects them because you know what? The people around her never once thought about how they might hurt her. They never cared about her needs. They never gave one fuck about her. They failed her over and over and over again. So was she self-obsessed manipulative? Yes. Diabolical? Yes. Callous? At times, yes. But think about how the other characters drove her to be that way. They are not entirely the victims here.

Why is it that the real heartless, unapologetic  manipulative people such as shane who never hesitated to ruin other people’s lives and NEVER once get held accountable for it always get praised and forgiven but the moment a person who everyone loved to manipulate and shit on stands up for herself  everyone flips their shit? People love to demonise vulnerable people who finally learned to recognise their worth and demand others to stop treating them like dirt but they easily turn a blind eye to other people in the show who were cheaters, manipulators and abusers in the first place without a single remorse about their actions.

Anonymous asked: i have no account at the moment but I found this blog everwatchful(.)tumblr(.)com and could you tell everyone to report it and spread the word about it? It's ENTIRELY creepshots. Their description is "How often do we do risky things, thinking no one's looking...? Sometimes they are...Upskirt, downblouse, nip slips, pokies, see through clothes & other unacknowledged public displays of flesh...I have them all..." They need to be reported and get their blog taken down.

Guys please do the same, this is disgusting!

Don’t look at the blog, just block and report.
