CANADA - As a response to people believing that Canada is fine and dandy and wow we’ve totally apologized and made amends with all the terrible things that happened… Check out this billboard project by (white) artist Cathy Busby called “We are Sorry” at AKA artist run centre in Saskatoon Saskatchewan. It highlights how much the gov “cares” about first nations people.

Nice response from The Liberal Party about the topic of false accusations in Attack Advertisements. Harper and his buddies are a bunch of criminals, literally.

“Years ago I learned a very cool thing about Robin Williams, and I couldn’t watch a movie of his afterward without thinking of it. I never actually booked Robin Williams for an event, but I came close enough that his office sent over his rider. For those outside of the entertainment industry, a rider lists out an artist’s specific personal and technical needs for hosting them for an event, anything from bottled water and their green room to sound and lighting requirements. You can learn a lot about a person from their rider. This is where rocks bands list their requirement for green M&Ms (which is actually a surprisingly smart thing to do). This is also where a famous environmentalist requires a large gas-guzzling private jet to fly to the event city, but then requires an electric or hybrid car to take said environmentalist to the event venue when in view of the public.
When I got Robin Williams’ rider, I was very surprised by what I found. He actually had a requirement that for every single event or film he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work. I never watched a Robin Williams movie the same way after that. I’m sure that on his own time and with his own money, he was working with these people in need, but he’d also decided to use his clout as an entertainer to make sure that production companies and event planners also learned the value of giving people a chance to work their way back. I wonder how many production companies continued the practice into their next non-Robin Williams project, as well as how many people got a chance at a job and the pride of earning an income, even temporarily, from his actions. He was a great multiplier of his impact. Let’s hope that impact lives on without him. Thanks, Robin Williams- not just for laughs, but also for a cool example.”

Just your daily reminders:

  • Racists are a problem

  • White people are not

  • Homophobes are a problem

  • Straight people are not

  • Transphobes are a problem

  • Cis people are not

  • Sexists are a problem

  • Men are not

And most importantly,

  • Hating an innocent person solely because of their race, sexuality, or gender makes you a fucking asshole

daily reminder that racism, homophobia, transphobia and sexism are institutional and literally kill people daily, so equating them to “cisphobia” is ridiculous. plus, marginalized groups have a right to be pissed with all the shit we go through.

daily reminder that posts like these actively put white, cis, straight, and non-male individuals in the victim position and take the focus off of actual issues that poc, lgbtia+ people and non-men go through daily, like fearing for our safety.

daily reminder that when you make and reblog this kind of post, you are most definitely the problem.

Detachment is a privilege held by people who aren’t targets.

"why are you so emotional about this" - unaffected people

read this. write it on your hand. repeat it to yourself.

so you can never ask me that again

“Annie (a pseudonym) is a Chinese-American, straight, female university professor. While she was in graduate school, she found it difficult to receive medical treatment due to the perceived psychiatric condition of simply being Asian and female: “I went to a doctor at the university because I had recurring abdominal pain. The doctor listened to my description, but rather than doing a physical exam, he explained to me that it was normal for Asian women to be anxious and stressed out, and anxiety was probably causing my abdominal pain.” But surprisingly, the doctor didn’t treat the anxiety either. He just said there was nothing he could do.”
