Q:There's a new show called Black-ish about a black guy trying to get back in touch with his culture. Great, right? Tumblr loves it. The problem? They set up being Jewish as the pinnacle of whiteness (ex, his son wanting to have a bar mitzvah is (1/2)
seen as acting extremely white, and evidence that his family has assimilated into whiteness. Not like there are black Jews, or like Jews have been culturally and ethnically othered for centuries, and struggle to preserve our culture after (2/3)
forced assimilation, antisemitic violence, and the whitewashing of our entire tribe. It’s so upsetting to see this being applauded by tumblr without any mentions of antisemitism whatsoever. I guess they just think we’re extremely white people.
Why are Jews the punchline? Why is it ok to use OUR people and cultures and history as some big joke? Hahah, Jews!
I agree with your assessment completely. This erases Black Jews, this whitewashes Jews as a whole, and makes a laughingstock of our history, our people, and our oppression. (And ironically, there are large swathes of black goyim who “claim” Judaism and Jewishness, despite having NO connection to it, in order to discredit “white Jews” as people who “stole Judaism from Africans” which is some fucking horseshit.)
This is antisemitic.
And of course tumblr doesn’t give a shit, tumblr likes to believe right wing conspiracy theories about “Jewish privilege” dressed up in leftist jargon.
Goyim can get fucked.
Miley: “Dad I have something for Tanners bug collection”
my uncle: “that’s great”
Miley: “it’s a bird”
my uncle: “no its not”
They let it go and it flew away just fine, so we’re wondering how she caught it.
she caught another bird.
update: she caught a squirrel today
She is gonna rule the world one day with this power
is that you Snow White?
paging seananmcguire, i think we have an ATI incursion in progress…
Q:Little goy things: ignoring every post about anti-semitism on their dash, not even bothering to "Like" it in acknowledgement... and then posting the Postmodern Jukebox klezmer-style cover of "Talk Dirty To Me". ((Sorry to vent, but I'm really sick of this sj mutual follower ignoring Jewish issues 100% of the time.))
This is a place for Jews to vent! You are in the right place!
And yes, it’s really fucking frustrating. Like oh, you acknowledge Jews exist when you sample our music (only to make fun of it later??????) or tokenize us for your shitty politics, or use racist dogwhistles to talk about our looks or hair, or Are Jews White (lets ask every goy but ignore jewish voices!!!!!)
but talk about how we are brutally persecuted? LOL wat r j00z i dunno wat ur talking abut
Or when they use Yiddish while scoffing at antisemitism smh
I just realized that the lack of acceptance for asexuals is literally the dumbest thing.
Like, you can’t handle the thought of two dudes kissing? Okay you’re dumb and terrible whatever.
But you can’t handle the idea… Of someone… Not kissing anyone? What are you worried about? They’re gonna eat too much mac n cheese?? Draw too many dinosaurs??? Tell me

This, literally, is dead on exactly how I feel, and probably a lot of you guys too.
if you ever wonder why I’m surprised when you call me your friend or when you say you want to hang out or when you say you miss me
It’s sad some people think like this I want to give them a hug
Seriously, guys, if you’re ever confused about me being surprised you’re paying attention to me or calling me your friend or interacting with me at all?
It’s because of this. It is 100% because of this, because I feel like this 100% of the time.
something i just noticed rewatching the end of bioshock infinite:
our Elizabeth isn’t at the baptism with all the others.
There’s the first one of the multiple Elizabeths, the middle of the three who hold Booker under, but she isn’t our Elizabeth. Our Elizabeth, outside the doors, had her locket on.
None of the Elizabeths at the baptism had that locket.
watch the fat guy version of this video—where it’s a skinny guy turned fat and the girls meet up with him. it goes SO DIFFERENT. they actually talk about things other than his weight, and he even gets kissed.
go and look at the opposite video on youtube then look at the comments. Even though the women are clearly nicer and less judging than the men they still try to justify the men’s reactions and put down the women. It’s kind of disgusting actually. It’s one of those things that makes you sad that you live in this society.
"it makes me so sad to lie in a society where you can’t get sex or a free male out of a man you’ve lied to on the internet"
The experiment is actually a sham.
The ‘fat guy’ is an admitted dating expert. As in, he has a goddamn youtube channel. He knows how to date, he knows how to engage somebody and he knows immediately how to keep somebody sticking around. The woman? Not so much.
Look at the two videos. The woman literally talks about herself, doesn’t even attempt to engage the guy and doesn’t try to make him interested in her as a person. Like, when the girls call the guy out on being fat, guess what? He says “Yeah, it is an old photo, about 3 or 3 years”, she says “Oh, maybe 6 months” and CONSTANTLY tries to underplay it like she’s being cute.
The guy at least owned the fact that he was fat. The girl sat there was did pretty much everything to deflect. The guy did his best to put his dates at ease, when at the start you could see they were shocked and a bit put off. The girl didn’t, she deflected, made excuses, put the blame on the guy, and guess what? That doesn’t make somebody want to sit down and continue the date. It only makes them more agitated.
If anything, this highlights exactly what the problem is with hetero dating. uys are expected to be everything they can, to take the reigns, to lead the date by being engaging and funny. The girl doesn’t and is expected to sit there and be cute. Guess what? When all you’re expected to do is sit there and be entertained by your date, your date isn’t going to be fucking happy when you show up not looking like your profile.
Maybe if the girl actually, I dunno, acknowledged she was fat, didn’t try to shift blame, didn’t try to be ‘cute’ and tried to actually engage the guy, it might’ve worked.
And here’s the thing. Not only is this experiment massively biased, the fucking odds aren’t that bad either. Four men and four women. 4/4 women stayed, 1/4 men stayed. Guess what? With that margin of error you could’ve just had 4 nice women and 3 asshole guys. Hell, for all we know, they specifically selected women who listed “okay with fat guys” on their Tindr and picked men who listed “no fat women” on theirs.
As somebody who is actually taking courses on research, this is a goddamn travesty of a ‘social experiment’.
Always reblog schooling tumblr
Ah good, now i’ll reblog it.
Q:What does the birthday think of the sexy corn costume
The Birthday does not answer Asks that are not requests for admission. But I have some thoughts.
Look: I love sexy costumes. If you want to be a sexy lamp, go with the Great Pumpkin and be fabulous in your fringe and your heels and your sexiness.
What I have an issue with is the way that “sexy” is more and more consistently the only option offered to women above the age of four. Yes, four. Four and under, you get the unisex costumes. When I search “corn costume,” I find adorable toddlers dressed as ears of corn and big triangular candy corn, and it’s like something out of Gravity Falls. So cute.
But then you hit five/six, and the gendered costumes become inescapable. No more cute unisex for you: things are either cut too large to work on the average female body—the only non-sexy store-bought corn costume is for an adult male, and I know men who would be swimming in the thing—or they are sexy. Sexy sexy sexy. Why would you even be going out on Halloween, if you didn’t want to sexy? SEXY IS THE NEW CREEPY.
The sexy costumes, the short skirts and the low bodices and the package pictures with pouty lips and thrusting hips and “this is the norm,” start at six years old. Frequently, it’s just the adult costume sized down, maybe with some tights and a slightly higher neckline. Maybe not.
Going to the Halloween store should not feel like a trip to the lingerie store. Especially not when I’m going there with kids who want a costume that will stand up to collecting all the candy ever.
"Just make your own" isn’t really an option in a world where we don’t prioritize learning to sew. Paying someone to make you one is equally not an option: if you’re at the Spirit Store, looking sadly at the sexy corn, you probably can’t afford a bespoke costume.
If “Sexy Corn” was part of a range that included “Corn—large,” “Corn—small,” “Sexy Corn—miniskirt version,” and “Sexy Corn—assless chaps version,” I would be fine with it. As it exists, right now, it is representative of a larger issue with how Halloween has been sexualized, and how we start limiting the choices of our girls as early as FIVE FUCKING YEARS OLD.
The Great Pumpkin does not approve. And neither do I.
doesntafraid replied to your post “Sometimes I remember that it is literally confirmed canon that Billy…”??
And I will forever love him for it.
