Sexual attraction patterns are set early in life and are very resistant to change. I'm generally not attracted to black women, and at almost 30, that's really unlikely to change. It doesn't make me racist, it just means I grew up in a racist culture, which affected me when I was a preteen, which I've consciously worked on overcoming. Berating people for being honest about something they have no control doesn't do much to further the goal of equality and just makes people more defensive.

Hey asshole, first of all, if you somehow think all black women are the fucking same, you’re fucking racist as shit, and the fact that you think you have no control over this, or can’t at least find the basic decency to shut the fuck up and be embarrassed about this terrible part of your racist brain, that’s what makes you extra racist. Who the fuck cares if racists get defensive, they fucking should, you idiot.

[here she talks about different levels of racism]

But at the same time I don’t think it’s ok to berate someone for their sexual attraction, because that’s like saying someone’s emotions are wrong.  Even if the underlying reason for those emotions is wrong, that doesn’t mean the emotions themselves are wrong.

I don’t think anyone should ever have to justify a statement along the lines of “I am not attracted to X person”. But “I am not attracted to black people” is a statement based on the belief that all black people look/are the same, which is a) untrue, and b) racist. Like, if I’ve met 17 people who watch a certain tv show and i am not attracted to them, I wouldn’t say “I am not attracted to anyone who watches x show”. So why would you make statements like that about race? It’s a racist thing to do. Especially someone who feels a need to make such a statement and then write into a blog to defend it. At that point I absolutely think they deserve to be called out.

man, i feel like you can’t really say “well i was raised in a racist society and it impacted my thought patterns, but i’m not racist”. if you were raised in a racist society and it impacted you, then you are racist. the next step is to work to be aware of your racism and try to change it, the way this guy is (supposedly) doing - but that work can’t be done if you don’t admit your racism in the first place. 

i should add that this definitely applies to me - I am white and I grew up in america, so I definitely was trained to be racist. It is my job to discover and be aware of my racist thought patterns, keep a critical eye on myself so they don’t affect my behavior towards other people, and work towards unlearning them entirely.

I’m cracking the fuck up at this. In which a horrible criminal is momentarily baffled at Goyim and their Mysterious Ways.

ITS SO CONFUSING THOUGH. Like i get conceptually why for some people its like no look my family is christian and I celebrate christmas but like I don’t go to church or believe in god so i’m not christen and it’s like MAN. THIS IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN HOW MY PEOPLE DO THINGS. Like I GET IT. I GUESS. but it is MOMENTARILY CONFUSING SOMETIMES. 

well, what the hell else ya been?

oh my god, wadanohara + regina spektor. i’m so happy right now.

Starting from the end and working backwards - Art Assignment Five! The goal was to head out from home and find the quietest place you can. I’m in my parents’ house in Maryland right now, which means the quietest place I could find away from traffic would be in the nearby park. 

Like a lot of people have been saying, it was harder to get away from the noise than I thought! It was a really nice warm day, so lots of kids were at nearby playgrounds, calling to each other. There were also tons of birds out. And no matter where we went, we couldn’t escape from the airplanes that went by overhead every few minutes.

The best place we could find was under the power lines, where people don’t build and no one really goes. We could still hear some planes and vague traffic noises, but it was about as quiet as it gets around here. It was really nice to sit in the grass for awhile and just absorb it.

I put some captions on the photos if you wanna see more about the steps along the way. The last two photos are where we ended up. :)

While I’m on the subject of cute games that can be creepy, I can’t believe I never made a post about Anodyne. I *loved* this game. It is similarly adorable, and the music is awesome.

There are puzzles and fights both, and they are actually a bit challenging in places, although mostly fairly straightforward. The game is mostly about exploration and plot.

It’s not nearly as creepy as wadanohara, so I recommend it if you thought wadanohara sounded too intense. But it does have some creepy/dark bits which I quite enjoyed. 

Unfortunately it isn’t free, but I would absolutely pay ten bucks for it. If you have some free cash, go for it!

Oh yeah, and did I mention your main weapon is a broom and a lot of the game mechanics involve sweeping up dirt? :P
