Dear Anonymous,

Before I start responding to this, I want you to know I’m happy to discuss this with you more in a private conversation. Please feel free to message me off anonymous with further questions. I have a policy on tumblr to only answer anonymous questions publicly. Anything asked without anonymity will be answered privately (which you are welcome to share my response).

I’m not too familiar with the term “Social Justice Warrior”, but if by SJW you mean I’m an active voter who puts his name on petitions he believes in, then you are describing me. While I wouldn’t say I get off on it, nor do I consider myself a wannabe, I am proud that I fight for what I believe in.

Political correctness is defined by Merriam-Webster as “agreeing with the idea that people should be careful to not use language or behave in a way that could offend a particular group of people”. I don’t believe that opposing rape, sexual harassment, oppression, human equality, etc is advocating political correctness. Whether I am correct about that or not, I will not stop fighting for the health/safety/rights of all people (no matter the gender, race, culture, etc).

In case I missed anything, I’ll answer all your questions/comments more bluntly:

1. Do you get off on being a wannabe’ SJW?

-No

2. You act like every 16 year old girl on this website making out like “rape culture” and female oppression is a real thing.

-It is a real thing and I’ll take this as a compliment.

3. Think it’ll make people like you more?

-Probably not.

4. Fucking wake up and stop being an advocate of political correctness gone mad.

-I am awake and I will not stop advocating for what I believe in.

<3

I need help with my documentation art concerning trans violence

lychgate:

after doing a performance piece last project, I became very interested in the documentation process and wanted to improve on that so I am going to do a documentation art piece.  

image

I want to create a piece on something very specific so at first I know it might sound weird:

I would like to do a piece on transgender people who have faced violence specifically from objects being thrown at them. From a car, from the sidewalk, out of a window, etc.

I want to take the information and create a piece with it, from it will have lots and lots of typed papers, documenting the injuries taken, and images provided, and all of the objects thrown will be repurchased by me and i will display them in the center, organized

If you are mtf or ftm in any way and have faced this situation, I would appreciate any information you can give about the incident

this can include:

item thrown

person who threw it

words that were said during the incident

your name (real name, alias, or anonymous, i  wont post your name if you do not want me to)

images of the injury if you took any, documents from hospital, police reports or incident reports filed, x rays of any kind

if you are willing to take a picture of yourself as is currently, straight foward, bust image for further documentation

area where the object hit you, date of when the incident occurred, time of day, anything you can remember about the entire situation. what you were wearing, where you were going, who you were with, any information you feel comfortable saying

if all you feel comfortable saying is something like “i am ftm and once a guy threw a water bottle at me from his car. i dont remember anything else and i didnt take any pictures” thats completely fine, 

you can contact me through tumblr, or my email which is hrybykmp@miamioh.edu  

title the email with trans violence and your name you would like to go by

If anyone could please reblog this for me, the more people I can get the better this project will be. i want this piece to be very powerful so i appreciate any signal boosts

I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

Just to add on- Hong Kong is one of the rare examples where it did kind of end up being better off under colonial rule. And before I get jumped on for being a neo-colonialist- I’m saying that as a person with Chinese ancestry whose great grandparents left China because of the accumulated poor situation caused by the Opium Wars and political strife in the early 1900s. Do not dichotomise conflicts outside the world as “White people oppressing POC”. Yes Chinese people have been victims at the hands of the British, then the Japanese- but today the Chinese government is culpable in corruption and human rights abuses- even against its own citizens in the mainland. There were thousands of disturbances last year in China over various issues like land grabs, corruption and pollution. The government has also been oppressing ethnic minorities like the Tibetans and Muslim Uighurs. What you see happening here in Hong Kong is another pattern in the behaviour of an authoritarian government that really needs to be held more accountable.  

Yes, the Opium Wars fucked China up, but the Communists really ruined the country during the 1950s onwards with the disastrous Great Leap Forward. There was a horrible famine caused by state mismanagement- and by the end of it all, it’s estimated anywhere from 18 million to 45 million Chinese died. Far more than died in WW2. And then of course, the infamous Cultural Revolution where there were basically witch-hunts which just caused enormous upheaval and strife, where people were “outed” as “bourgeois” or capitalists or whatever and imprisoned, tortured and publicly humiliated. University students and professors were accused of being traitors. Even the Communist Party today acknowledges it was a complete disaster. While all of this was going on, by comparison, Hong Kong flourished under British rule.

The China you see today that is the world’s second largest economy is a product of Deng Xiaoping’s reform in the 1970s- which involved throwing out huge parts of the Communist economic policies to embrace capitalism- and putting a stop to the blind and rigid adherence to Communist ideology. Economically, China is in many ways very open to capitalism BUT politically, the government is pretty authoritarian still. And quite capable of oppression.

Do not lionise the Chinese government as this heroic “POC” country standing up to “white supremacy”, give them a free pass, or somehow think whatever they do cannot be as bad as Western imperialism. People with my skin colour are perfectly capable of oppression when they have institutional power. And they darned well better be called out for it. 

^^^^ YES

can we talk about this lady please? How she was an elderly, single woman who literally left all of her property to her cats and how the artists could have just made her a stereotypical crazy old cat lady but instead they made her absolutely fabulous and graceful and she still twirls in front of her mirror like she’s pretending to be a princess at age 60/70/80-something?
