Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
notactuallysherlock asked: What are your thoughts on Laverne Cox not making the time 100, despite her getting like the fifth most votes in the polls?
Laverne Cox is the most visible trans person of color in the world and she has helped millions of people to learn about trans people and the discrimination they face. I think Laverne Cox is one of the most important and influential people in the world and should’ve been included in the TIME 100.
I would force a Jewish hospital to do an organ transplant if it meant saving a life.
I would force a Jehovah’s Witness hospital to do a blood transfusion if it meant saving a life.
I would force a Muslim hospital to house men and women together if it meant saving a life.
I would force a Catholic hospital to preform an abortion if it meant saving a life.
Why? Because hospitals, places where you go when you are at your most vulnerable, cannot pick and choose what they do simply because ‘it goes against their faith.’ We jail Christian ‘Scientists’ for allowing their children to die.
There is a clear and defined line between keeping to religious tradition and saving a person from death. It’s not okay to let someone die or simply live a life of pain or insufficiency because ‘my god said no!’
Then go to a hospital that believes what you do? Who the fuck are you to force your agenda on anyone else when you pro choice arseholes are the ones who always shout “my body my rules” well if a religious group owns a hospital it’s “their hospital their rules” and you can go somewhere else for your abortions idiot.
Because typically EMTs have an obligation to take you to whichever hospital is geographically closer. And a hospital is full of doctors. Doctors who took oaths to treat patients, to give them the best quality care and help their patient. Who is the one who can tell them where it hurts or has physical presentation of what’s wrong.
Also, pretty sure they swear along with everything else,”I will not permit considerations of gender, race, religion, political affiliation, sexual orientation, nationality, or social standing to influence my duty of care."
Notice that bit? How it says they can’t let their personal preferences interfere with whatever care their patient needs? It’s almost like going into the medical field - you can’t let your own personal beliefs influence how you treat patients. Now.. what’s a hospital? A great big building with a bunch of doctors. So, what’s that?
A building full of people who swore to not let anything get between treating patients and are. So, strip ‘em of their license and let them work at some building that doesn’t require such oaths. Like a McDonalds. ;)
I’m still amazed.
There are people here who are literally advocating that when you’re having a medical crisis, you should have to drive out of your way to have life saving treatment, just so the doctors and nurses can feel more comfortable breaking their Oath.
once my sister got rejected for a job at a web design company that she really wanted to work for so that night she hacked into their website and redirected it to her blog and the next day the CEO called her and hired her on the spot so moral of the story: if at first you don’t succeed, hack their website and make them beg for mercy
THIS IS SO BRILLIANT
