American newspapers just seizing the opportunity to have a little fun with slavery. Totally accidental and/or harmless.
In other news: microaggressions are common verbal, behavioral, and environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile or negative slights to marginalized groups. (via Donovon X Ramsey)
What do you think? Catchy headlines or microaggressions?
The last two I could write off as just lazy editing
The first two? Motherduckers playing games
All of them are intended to demean. You could shorten the film title to “12 Years” just as easily and actually more descriptively, but throwing the word “Slave” around with “master” and pictures of Lupita Nyong’o is a way of re-emphasizing how US society views Black people.
The American white media never fails to disappointment me.

notice how violent some of them turn. the only thing that angers them more than being rejected by women is being attracted to men. stop trying to tell us women aren’t in danger. Stop acting like you don’t get how trans women are in danger for simply existing.

Learning to speak to children in a constructive, positively reinforcing, non-abusive way (which was hard to unlearn due to my own abuse) is one of the most important things i have ever learned to do. It’s also dramatically changed how i speak with adults.

Isn’t it amazing how a group of adult men can completely take over a show meant for little girls; making it virtually impossible to search or do anything related to the show without being exposed to over-sexualized, misogynistic, sexist crap, and they get a documentary that praises them for stepping outside of their perceived gender roles? Meanwhile 45% of the gaming community is comprised of women and I get dick pics and rape threats if I try and go on xbox live.
There’s one for every era:
Dangerously in Love - The “Uh-Oh” Dance
B’Day - “Get Me Bodied” dances
I Am… Sasha Fierce - “Single Ladies” Hand
4 - The “Run the World” Head/Shoulder Bop
BEYONCÉ - The “I woke up like dis”
I would also argue the “to the left” hand gesture move from Irreplaceable and the “stanky leg” with hair flip from Run the World
