"I wanted to write about the moment when your addictions no longer hide the truth from you. When your whole life breaks down. That's the moment when you have to somehow choose what your life is going to be about." - Chuck Palahniuk
So many men have internalized the lie that they have uncontrollable sex drives, and no way to control their anger. They aren’t ashamed of their abusive behavior because they see it as a something natural to them and maybe even central to their masculinity. It’s scary as hell.
haha what? if you wanna talk about people being mixed, why don’t we say that europeans are mutated africans. after all, the first humans came from east africa. but besides: europeans are just as mixed. if you have fuller lips, curly hair or a flat/small nose I’ll claim that your ancestors got mixed with africans. which makes you potentially not purely european. ka-ching. (which you would think is stupid, right?). and then again (to bring even more stuff into this) europeans are not the only people who can have fair skin. that occurs among all races. just as blue and green eyes or straight hair. thus your skin/eye colour, face are not determinential of your race but you see, I’m assuming again, ain’t I? because you might be a poc, as by far not all british people are white. and that btw is a big problem I personally have with tumblr, 1.assuming people’s race by judging where they are coming from (europe has many inhabitants who are poc, white expats might be livign anywhere from iran to kenya and from japan to chile), 2. dividing the world into people of colour and white people as if that is a straight line. but come one, look at eastern europe, south africa or any area that has been colonialized: you’ll find not only ‘recently’ mixed people but a lot of people who just are ‘in between’ and let me tell you that being white passing/not white enough yet not ‘coloured’ enough isn’t a cake either. sure the ‘real’ poc have it much harder, because they are being singled out much faster because of their looks, but if you’re not really either, then you’ll end up not being wanted by either ‘team’ and that sucks. please note I’m not here to diminish the struggle of poc! just wanted to add this, as it often gets overlooked/forgotten and the binary that is often made on tumblr is a pain in the ass.
According to your criteria, I’m not African
yo anon, fuck off with your bullshit. you have no goddamn place to tell someone what race/ethnicity/etc someone is.
