Gonna keep a tally of messages I get from a) white feminists completely proving my point and b) people who think this comic proves feminism is worthless because I criticized one part of it. (Even despite me writing these words underneath the comic.) Then I’ll add them all up, see which column has more, and then drink myself to sleep either way.

Haha… this is why we can’t have nice things.

I’ve been following this artist since the beginning of high school, maybe earlier. As a black womanist/feminist, seeing this comic makes me smile. White feminist tend to silence the voices of black women and other POC, steal their work and not give them credit. And instead of being more inclusive, white feminist tend to want to gear the conversation towards themselves. Being a POC or queer while being female adds to our human experience as a whole, which is generally erased in mainstream feminism. I am black and female, my experiences are different than those who are white and female. Awesome comic :)

DEAR PORNBLOGS OF TUMBLR

Things that are ok to say to a person’s nudes / selfies:

  • you look gorgeous / stunning / cute / lovely / awesome
  • you have (a) beautiful body / face / arms / legs / hair / booty (if you absolutely MUST isolate one body part, but it’s more respectful if you don’t)
  • I love this set of lingerie / your captain america shirt / nailpolish

Things that are NOT ok to say to a person’s nudes / selfies:

  • ride my face
  • i want to shove my dick in your face
  • come to daddy
  • you make my dick hard
  • {follow for more bbw cuties} / [welcome to lady cassandras playpen] / (insert link to your creepy blog)
  • LITERALLY ANYTHING that implies that the person in the photos would / should have sex with you.
    You have absolutely no right to assume that. It’s disrespectful and makes a lot of people (certainly not all of them, but still) uncomfortable.

Things I’d also like to include in things that are NOT ok to say to a person’s nudes / selfies:

  • How you’d like to do anything rapey / non consensual and
  • Talking about women people as objects (eg for both of above:”I’d tie that down and fuck it”, “the things I’d do to that” etc)
  • Slurs as compliments, no. Slut, whore, bitch, cunt, rape-bait, fattie etc aren’t compliments to me.
  • Don’t jerk off with your right hand and point with your left either. If you enjoy my work or view porn you don’t get to judge those who make it! Have some respect for us, and some self respect!
  • Use our pics to advertise *anything* we haven’t consented too. If you designed or made the products we are wearing or using, it’s totally fine to be like “Wow looks grat wearing our xyz thingy!” etc, but I’m not here to advertise for you, unless you’d like to pay me to consensually advertise for you

people complain about people “faking disabilities”
you know what happens way more often than people faking disabilities?
people pretending not to be disabled so they won’t get treated like shit

so they won’t lose their jobs

their relationships

so they won’t be abused or beaten

so they won’t be denied access or care

so they won’t be killed.

or they have internalised what society has told them for so long. what their peers have told them. what their loved ones have told them. i am not sick enough to warrant help. it’s not worth it. i don’t need help. if i need help, i am weak, and there is something wrong with me on the inside that makes me bad. that makes me less.

or they have tried to get help, and it’s failed. the people around them have been untrustworthy, the medical community has been untrustworthy, they don’t have insurance or the money to get proper care or continuing care, they need the job they have because they have to support their family. a lot of disabled people are poor. are homeless.

i don’t know a single human being who wishes that they had a crippling disability. but i know a whole lot of people who fear for their very lives to speak out about what’s disabling them.
