I’ve been thinking of a way to explain to straight white men how life works for them, without invoking the dreaded word “privilege,” to which they react like vampires being fed a garlic tart at high noon.
This is indeed a good article. The comments… not so mature, but mostly OK.
I went to the cinema with my friends to watch Dark Shadows, then I saw this:
And I thought: “He looks like a very young Sherlock, rich but unhappy in his parents manor”.
I was starting to worry about my obsession over Sherlock (“What? Am I so obsessed that I think of it even when I am watching other films?”), then my boyfriend turned around and said: “He looks like a young Benedict Cumberbatch”.
Looks like I am not the only one being obsessed. Also, kind of amusing that I thought “Sherlock” and my boyfriend said “Benedict Cumberbatch”.
Planned Parenthood is excited to be launching our new Tumblr that’s all about sexual and reproductive health – bodies, birth control, relationship issues, “is it normal for this to do this?” type things. In the coming weeks and months we’ll be sharing what we know, answering questions, and just… tumblring.
There’s no way in hell I’m going to re-blog anything from this fuck’s shit stain of a tumblr.
Instead, I encourage you to email Tumblr Support (firstname.lastname@example.org) and request that fuckyeahwhiteprivilege be removed. Essentially, the OP is advocating for white supremacy, using an abundance of horribly offensive racial slurs, and is trolling blogs of PoC.
Lastly, I hope you will re-blog this and encourage other people to do the same. Thanks.
