YOU’VE GONE TOO FAR
I was thinking about making a comic about this because this is the most annoying thing.
When I was 17, I went to otakon with a (white) friend of mine. She had red, pink and white dread extensions and piercings and what not and every 5 feet we had to stop so someone could get a picture with her. She wasn’t dressed up as anyone, she was just there.
We met a (black) girl with some of the most beautiful dread extensions I’ve ever fucking seen in red, black and white dressed up as Jesse from team rocket and I kind of lost my shit because she was so cute, but I was too afraid to talk to her. While my friend was getting her 1000th picture taken, I approached her and she found out it was my first time there and wanted me to go around with her so that I didn’t feel lost.
Walking around with her for a bit was so fucking awful only because people kept saying, “It’s a ghetto Jesse.” or that she wasn’t really into that stuff because black girls don’t like pokemon.
She was seasoned by conventions to handle this talk and I felt so awful for her. I am filipina and Irish American, no one questioned me being there. But so many people assumed that because of the color of her skin that she was any less of a fan and any less unique and wonderful. How fucking dare they.
Thus is the reason the nerd culture needs to be turned inside out. So we can lose these fuckers that think that if Ramona Flowers had been black that she’d be ghetto and unfuckable.
Gurl knows what’s up
Never thought id reblog Miley but she’s on point.
Just a fraction of the cool stuff I learned when researching women’s history.
Rosalind Franklin got fucking ROBBED. She did all the research and all the work to discover That DNA is a double helix which was like revolutionary at the time but she gave it to Watson and crick to look over and they took her research and published it as their own and won a Nobel prize for it (I’m pretty sure it’s been three years since AP bio) and she couldn’t do anything about it and no one believed her.
