[Pictured: four images displaying a Facebook “fan page” titled “Confused Muslim girl. The photos include three memes posted by the page which feature a Muslimah in a hijab making sarcastic, incredulous face behind captions including: “When your dad trades you for a camel.” “When your mother does not wear her burqa” and “When you cousin crashes a plane into an American building and forgets to invite you”. The fourth photo is a status update by the page saying: “who wants to blow up some shit? ;)”.]

Hey there Tumblr! I heard you hate racism! Cool, me too. I hate racism a lot. So I need your help.

The above photos are screenshots taken from this Facebook page. Content/trigger warning on that page - they’re not restraining themselves from joking about suicide, rape, and abuse.

According to Facebook rules, hate speech and speech that attacks a protected group should not be allowed. This page is a clear violation of that rule - it is a constant stream of Islamophobic vitriol and ignorance, mixed in with a fuck-ton of orientalism. Please report this page for hate speech and spread the word, and don’t let these fuckers get away with this blatantly racist minstrel show.

Thanks.

I don’t need feminism because feminists take invasive photographs of me wearing signs.[EDITOR’S NOTE: A submission from the excellent www.manfeels-park.com gal! Her site is pretty much the best place to go if you need to see cartoons of Jane Austen characters saying terrible Men’s Rightsy things. It’s really rather brilliant.]

lucillebruise:

I am 1000% done with fat activism that doesn’t include double chins, bodies that aren’t hourglass or “pear” shaped, or fat WOC (ESPECIALLY dark skinned Black women), or fat trans folk. 

"Idealized Fat", "Acceptably Fat", "GOOD FAT" is still exclusionary and harmful, and causes a lot of us to continue to hate ourselves. If you’re going to teach radically inclusive self-love, how about you step it up on the representation.

Caterpillars have “prolegs” along their abdomen that facilitate their slinky mode of transportation. Not considered to be true legs, prolegs are only present in the larval stage of lepidopterans (butterflies and moths).
