Hey, White America, You Need To Hear What These Ferguson Kids Have To Say

In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.

Watch the full video and see these kids explain how racism is still a huge part of even getting an interview for a job.

THIS IS THE SHIT

Watch the video. This actually angers me. They call for the end of racism through racism. In being racist, they are perpetuating the racist culture. We need acceptance and equality, not a blame game of he said she said. Two wrong don’t make a right. How many cliches do I need to pull out before this gets across. White people as a stereotypical whole, are racist. Black people as a stereotypical whole ARE racist. Quit.

That women are pressured to be hairless, and men can do what they want and no one cares, is neither morally nor logically defensible.

Parineeti Chopra responds to a male reporter who claims to know nothing about periods (menstrual cycle). [X]

SO IMPORTANT.

I started my period when I was 10 years old. But we didn’t tell my grandma for three years because she subscribed to the “old traditions”, where a woman on her period could not enter the house, not even to bathe. Where she had to sit outside in front of the house (where the whole village could be witness to her shame and isolation) for the entire duration.

My friend started her period unexpectedly while we were at our local temple (in America) for dance class. Asking around if any of the parents had pads (all of them apologized and acted like adults about it), I thought surely the front office has a first aid kit. Don’t they have pads? When we asked, not only did they not have any, when one of the women gave one from her purse, the head secretary told us “There are men who need to use the first-aid kit, ya? So we don’t keep period things there.” Not even ibuprofen (which has so many more uses than period pain).

There are girls in India and Nepal (and other places, but I just read an in-depth piece about the situations in Nepal) who have to go to the “period hut” when their period comes and not leave until its over. They can’t wash and dry their cloth pads in the daylight, so they do it at night when the pads won’t dry properly before their next use, making them vulnerable to infection.

It is incredibly important, especially in India, to break the taboo surrounding periods. Break the secrecy around an event that happens to almost every woman, every month for literally half of her lifetime. Break the hiding, break the cover-up, break the SHAME.

Just break EVERYTHING. So little girls can go to school every day of every month without feeling ashamed. So women can work every day of every month to provide for their families without being glared at. So single fathers can confidently take care of their daughters’ health. So that women can talk about how terrible their period is or isn’t and give each other advice on how to deal with it without looking around to make sure men aren’t listening.
So that Whisper doesn’t have to be called Whisper, it can be called SHOUT. It can be called PROUD. So that we don’t NEED to fucking WHISPER about our bodies and our health.

The difference between abuse & neglect and genuine love for a child that may be trans.

REMEMBER IF YOU DON’T CONFORM TO GENDER ROLES YOU ARE TRANS EVERYONE

FUCK ALLLLLL

I feel that assuming a non-conforming kid is automatically transexual actually reinforces the idea of a solid, inherent gender binarity instead of breaking it. If you’re a boy and you like “girl stuff” like skirts and dolls and hair accessories, does it mean you’re actually a girl? Or does it just mean that associations between gender and types of clothing and gendered play are taught instead of inherent? A non-conforming kid might end up being trans, or not. They might end-up being gay, which was my case. Or they might end up just being non-conforming.

Non-conformity doesn’t mean you need a new gender. It means the whole idea of gender is broken as fuck.
