IS this for fuicking real?
i would give my left kidney for asexual taystee jefferson.
she’s an extrovert who cares more about her family in all its forms than she is in dating.
none of her flashbacks or current prison drama revolve around fucking.
when poussey kisses her she says she’s “not like that” but cuddling is fine and she obviously enjoys that - why is everyone assuming she means she’s straight?
when she yells at p in the library she never says the issue is that she liked her, it’s that she liked her “like that” and “wanted her to take off her clothes and shit” - those are not the words of someone uncomfortable with a lesbian. those are the words of someone uncomfortable with sex.
she jokes about sex but it’s /always/ a joke. “a nubian king with a nubian thing”? come on. she uses it like a punchline. she uses it like an ace.
can you imagine? if any show were to have some ace representation, i could see it being orange is the new black. and can you imagine it being TAYSTEE? the fan favorite, loud and happy and dancing - sings like an angel, stings like a bee - can you imagine? taystee saying, “no, i’m asexual. not like a fucking plant, like a person. i just don’t like it.” can you IMAGINE? allosexual people being forced to see an ace character who wasn’t a novelty or a joke or treated like it was a disorder? can you imagine allosexual people actually /hearing/ the word asexual on one of the most popular tv shows that exists right now? can you even imagine?
reasons why halloween is the best holiday:
- you are not obliged to visit your relatives
- you are not obliged to get gifts for anyone
- people will give you candy for absolutely no reason other than halloween
- its the only day when its socially acceptable to go out in public dressed like a penguin
The term “gypsy” is actually a non-preferred and derogatory term (slur) for Roma people. The slur assumes that the Romani came from Egypt, which is not true. For those of you who aren’t aware of anti-Roma bigotry, the Roma are an indigenous people whom originated in northern India 1,000 years ago who continue to be pushed from nation to nation and mistreated. They are frequently denied legal status and social services and often suffer from poorer health status than that of the general population and other marginalized groups within the UK and the US. Up to 220,000 - 500,000 Romani were slaughtered in the Holocaust, though a definite estimation can not be determined.
There are many stereotypes about the Roma, but the most predominant is that they are all gazing into a crystal ball, reading palms and tea leaves or divining the future with a deck of Tarot cards and that they’re all sociopathic drifters who steal children and anything else that isn’t tied down.
Please don’t continue to use this slur in ignorance.
did you kno: Gypsy is and will always be a slur, no matter how you try to spin it. It’s where the terms “gypped” and “gyppo” come from. Sound familiar? It should do, because where I live in Britain people use those words constantly to this day to degrade and hurt Rroma. Did you kno: Gypsy is the word (Zigeuner, German word for Gypsy) that Rroma were forced to have tattooed on their bodies by Hitler before being sent to death camps, where barely any made it out alive? Did you kno: Rroma are called Gyppos, and Gypsies, while being beaten? That they are called this while they’re forced to leave their homes, while they’re assaulted and raped, while they’re being forcely sterilized? What about while they’re being harassed by both law enforcement and by citizens, and while they’re being fingerprinted for being ‘Gypsy’? Did you kno: Little Rroma children are ostracized and made to leave schools by classmates and teachers alike because they are ‘Gypsies’? Did you kno: Gadje still throw molotov cocktails into the windows of Rroma, while shouting out antiziganist slurs like.. oh I dunno, like ‘Gypsy’ for example?
did you kno: you ain’t shit
Do people see why I hate did-you-kno yet
