With all the heat Anita Sarkeesian gets for her Tropes series, you’d think it was a new topic, but Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert had a discussion on a similar theme when they were talking about the influx of slasher movies on their show in 1980.

34 years later and this is STILL relevant

so this is what i ended up with for the “make your audience angry” assignment
i dont know about ya’ll but that phrase pisses me right the hell off

Side tip: if anyone ever grabs your hair like the above, clamp one hand HARD down on your scalp where the hair is coming out (think of how you try to immobilize your hair when brushing tangles out so it doesn’t hurt as bad, only do so at the scalp and not further down the hair). Then use your other hand to start hitting the other person (go for the face!) and blocking any blows they may try to make with their free hand. You can also step into them (which removes the tension on your hair) and start throwing your knees into their groin, stomach, kick the side of their knee, etc. 
The reason hair-pulling works is A) it HURTS and B) it’s an effective handle, especially because your instinct is going to be to pull away. But reduce the pain and the tension on the hair and you have more room to work with until the other person lets go, at which point you can run like hell or otherwise defend yourself as needed.

“I was the youngest in the family. I went to Israel first, and the rest of the family was supposed to join me. Nobody made it. We sent letters to each other for the first few years. The last letter I got from Poland came in 1941. It was from my mother. It asked me to send food. Then the letters stopped. I knew that the Germans had occupied Poland, and I heard rumors about the things that were happening. I never learned the specifics of what happened to my family. I never wanted to.”

I have heard that I am “pretty for a black girl” my entire life. Men have always insinuated that there was no way I could only be black. “Yeah yeah, I know you’re black. But…what else?” They would point out my features or hair texture or something really stupid that made no sense. They said black as if it was a curse. Black women are some of the most colorful women in the world. We come in all shades…have so many hair textures..eye colors..body types. In this generation, it’s sad to see so many black girls claiming ethnicities that they know nothing about in hopes of impressing a man or appearing ‘exotic’. So many people act as if being black and beautiful is impossible. It’s not. If we wanna get technical and look at our history, almost every black American is mixed. But we must stop implying that a woman’s beauty comes from a part of her that is not black. This shirt is to die for. The link to purchase is in the location. 👑 (at 💳💵: teespring.com/blackgirl)
