At dinner my family and I were watching TV and there was a guy on it and I was like “I know him from somewhere!” and I couldn’t figure out where I knew him from and then it said that he was a gay porn star and dinner suddenly became very awkward.
Well, yes. Plus they are following the results shows, how many people even give a fuck about the results show? I just want this show to burn now.
Yep. But you know what would be even better, if 2nd season of American Horror Story bombed, and that stupid ass sitcom he has on NBC tanked and then he tries to come running back to Glee to save it only for it to be cancelled.
I really just want Ryan Murphy to be laughed out of Hollywood is that too much to ask?
It will have high ratings because it’s gonna follow XFactor, the question is whether they will stay high.
IDK about that, didn’t the X factor kinda underperform in it’s first season in America. I mean at least that’s the idea I got from all the talk of replacing judges and whatnot. But you’re right folks who watch the X factor might stick around to watch Glee, but then again folks that are used to Glee being on Tuesdays might forget and miss the episode of Thursdays.
Oh my god this is going to be one great big trainwreck.
So, Samcedes is no more? Uh huh. Show of hands: who was NOT expecting this? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Welp! Now, I can REALLY not watch the show. That time slot just opened all the way up. It’s been real, Glee.
“I cannot emasculate you. I do not have any power to take that innate part of you away. Your masculinity is not tied to your looks, your hygiene (or lack thereof), or your car. Your masculinity is tied to your confidence, which is a product of your own self. So don’t you DARE assign me your insecurity, you piece of shit. Eating a piece of fruit or taking care of yourself is not going to cause your testicles to shrivel up and fall off. You become “emasculated” by those emotional issues you refuse to admit you have.
This is why doctors are full of shit. How you gonna lie to your patient and their family’s faces and say that it’s a “simple procedure” and they’ll be going home within a day, and everyone else says it would be about three days.
And then my mom comes out of surgery and is in severe pain, which again you failed to mention, and instead of giving like a morphine drip or something in the IV you wanna give her pills when the procedure that was performed was done on her NECK.
Doctors stay failing.
Oh oh oh and you gonna come out of the operating room and say that the artery wasn’t as blocked as you thought it was. Yeah I don’t trust white folks, let along white doctors.
I say BULLSHIT. That Shin woman should have gotten her other round and a detailed, extremely flattering apology from the judges. That touch didn’t take place for at LEAST 2 seconds, and with one on the clock, she should have won the round.
Bullshit Olympics politics shit. Why’s it nearly always the white people getting favored in these initial decisions? Swimming (South Korean champ is disqualified AFTER swimming the whole race for a false start no one can see from any of the film? It was corrected but should never have been called), gymnastics (Japanese team headstand doesn’t count until a formal complaint is filed? corrected again but still), and now fencing (and this one WASN’T corrected?). There’s something fucking fishy going on here, and I really don’t like it. Also these are only the events I’m seeing/hearing about. Who knows how much of this shit is happening in shooting, canoeing, horse dressing or whatever that’s called, etc?
I’m glad it’s not just me, I feel like if I could side eye the Olympics, NBC or the commentators any more my eyes would be stuck like that for the rest of my life.
The post talks about how Racial Preferences are inherently racist. Heads exploded.
The post itself was supposed to be dedicated to gay male cultures, but everyone felt they had a hand in the discussion and it soon turned into a clusterfuck.
So I decided that I’m going to go into further detail as to why exactly these “preferences” are racist.
Before we go into this conversation though, we need to understand several things.
You cannot compare racial preferences and racism to sexism and homosexuality. You can try and make the comparison if you want, but you’ll just be derailing and here’s why. Homosexuality, whether by nature, nature or some mixture of the two is an innate characteristic. It is independent of one’s personal prejudices. Don’t get me wrong, it is completely possible to be a sexist and be gay, but one’s gayness isn’t a defining factor or even a contributing factor in their potential sexism. It exists outside of it.
The reason why this is different from racism in respect to personal preferences is that while sexual orientation is innate and has been since the beginning of time (gays have existed just as long as heterosexuals, even before these identities had labels) race however, is a completely social construct.
What that means is that biologically speaking, race does not exist. That means race as we understand it today, is a completely social entity. That means race exists solely as a means to define and typify us on the most trivial of physical identifiers.
Race is not only a social construct, but is a construct that was created by and for White People as a means of legitimizing their claims of racial superiority. By this logic, it is not possible to be racist against White People. As the creators and benefactors of this system, they cannot be the victims of it.
Racism is a lot more than being consciously abrasive to People of Color (hereafter referred to as PoC). It effects every aspect of our society, meaning that the job market, educational institutions, personal interactions, and idealized standards of beauty are all effect by racism. This is a fact.
Just because you don’t think that what you did was racist, doesn’t mean that it wasn’t racist. Intentions aren’t magical, just because you didn’t intend for something to be racist, doesn’t mean it won’t be perceived that way.
Now that we’ve gotten all of these things out of the way, let’s begin. Here’s the thing about racial “preferences”, they usually favor White People.
In the gay community, the most common image you’ll ever see in the gay community is a conventionally attractive White Male.
Even in the subcultures of the gay community, the standard image is of a White Male. Bears, Muscle Queens, Circuit Queens. All of them have are represented by the image of an attractive White Male. Seriously. Think about it.
When gay media is saturated with images of White Men, it’s going to play into how the gay community operates in terms of it’s sexuality.
Seriously, go onto any gay website that has a community function or dating option (OkCupid, Adam4Adam,Gay.com) and count how many times you see the words “White Only” “Not into <insert non-white race or ethnicity here>”. You can literally go page after page after page and see it numerous times.
To act as if there isn’t a racist component to dating and attraction is to basically lie.
Seriously, just take a look at this survey from OKCupid (x)
It shows just how skewed our “preferences” are.
And the most annoying aspect of all this is that you all know it’s racist. You know it is. But rather than taking a look at yourself and trying to understand how you came upon these “preferences”, you pass it off as if you came upon them out of nowhere. You then rattle off the same basic-ass attempts to disassociate yourself from your problematic desires.
These “preferences” don’t come from nowhere. They come from being subjected to a whitewashed media, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told that people get past these “preferences” when they do just a little introspection and question where they come from.
Another aspect that’s annoying is that people are making these statements “it’s just a preferences, if I ever came upon someone who made me feel different, it wouldn’t be an issue.”
Here’s the thing, by claiming that you have a “racial preference” you making a statement that you have enough knowledge about whatever race your excluding to determine that people from this <insert race> race are not compatible.
This is literally an impossible assortment to make. To assume that PoC of any particular race are similar enough to determine their entire race incompatible is FUCKING RACIST.
No matter the intent.
If you don’t find PoC attractive, I can’t stop you. And personally, I don’t particularly care, but what I do care about is people trying to lie and say that these statements and attractions aren’t inherently racist and then try to lie and derail with false equivalencies to sexism.
You don’t get to engage or perpetuate a racist system and then remove yourself from responsibility when called out on it.
If you’re too lazy to do the introspection, then don’t have the audacity to try and refute the claims of racism when they’re clearly factually true.
co-signed a billion times by this Asian who has had their self-esteem ruined by white gay cis men. you motherfuckers are racist and usually don’t care.
Fuck you forever.
Let’s not get into what happens when White cis gay men are open about how much they looooooooooooooove Black men.
Oh, no. Not regular Black men.
Thugs. Gangstas. Mandingo. Beasts. Animals. And all that other dehumanzing shit that’s been done since forever.
that their beauty is forced down every woc’s throat. that’s why we can’t handle a movie claiming they suffer the most from oppressive beauty standards even if it was fictional, because in reality beauty standards are exclusively made with white women in mind and values you higher than the rest of us.
