Why

holy shit okay this is, again, people applying western race relations to other countries and i will not have it
japan is notorious, absolutely notorious for fetishizing and being outright racist when it comes to stereotypes and other races. if you live in japan or you’ve ever experienced what it’s like to be a non-japanese person in japan,
japan is not the united states. the race dynamics are incredibly different. there are plenty of restaurants and businesses which have the sign ‘japanese only’ brazenly hung outside their walls. if you’re korean in japan? good fucking luck taking on the immense amount of racism that both the government and the general populace will hurl your way. there are third generation korean kids, who for three generations have had their families live in japan, who do not have japanese citizen ship purely based on the fact they have korean blood in them.
black people? a joke too. in japan they’re all buff, they’re all angry, and there is little presented to the country outside of outrageous stereotypes.
white people? you’re ignorant or you’re all idiots. that’s the truth, and it starts to deviate once you get into country by country. americans are all loud and fat and ignorant. british people are all upper class or fucking royalty of some kind. 
so yes, it is offense. it’s offensive to not ‘white people’ in america, it’s offensive to the white demographic of japan, who funnily enough, don’t benefit from white privilege in a country in which they are not the ones on top of the ruling power structure.
i’m so sick and tired of westerners applying their racial dynamics to countries that have nothing to fucking do with them. 
what’s even worse is white bloggers reblogging this going ‘oooh lmao’ about a country that has nothing to do with their racial politics in an attempt to seem more open-minded, which has the opposite effect when you’re basically imprinting your own views and your own country’s status on to another country’s. but i guess colonialism is dead, right?
not everywhere is america for fuck’s sake

monday morning. the sixteenth of september.
seven sixteen to seven twenty-four, ante meridiem.

oh, why not? it’s very rare that you get full nudes from me. let’s just call it a special occasion, brought on by a bout of body-positive feelings in the past couple of days.

i love the way these turned out. i sometimes worry that full nudes will take away from your image of me. but in addition to matters of emotion and spirit, i think most of you also regard me very much as physically female, both because of and in spite of my body.

i am not wearing any makeup at all. (i’m sorry.) i literally got out of bed, put my hair in a ponytail and went out onto my front porch. and, i should tell you that i haven’t edited these at all except for just a bit of toning.

i also should tell you that it was 39 degrees (F) outside when these were taken. quite an invigorating start to a gorgeous september day.

nobody should be shamed for liking sex, but nobody should be shamed for being uncomfortable with sex or not liking or wanting it either and if you think that sex positivity means a culture in which enjoying sex is compulsory you can go start a colony on mars far away from me where that’s a rule but don’t do that here i swear to fuck

Just a message to everyone watching tonight: binding with ACE bandages is EXTREMELY dangerous, and you should never, ever, ever, EVER, EVER do it. Friends of mine have broken ribs and had serious, permanent damage done to them from binding with ACE bandages.

Stay safe, beautiful trans people! Your bodies are so important, and you’re important, and I love you. Each and every one of you. <3

OKAY NO EVERYONE HOLD YOUR HORSES HAVE I GOT SOME GREAT SHIT FOR YOU!!

you see these binders? They may not look much, but these fucking things bind like the CHAINS OF HELL THEMSELVES. I’ve got HUGE tits, up in the DD range, but this simple little binder works some goddamn MAGIC on them. It’s comfortable, it binds, it provides perfect support and whatever the hell else. And they look like plain tank tops, so you can wear them out as regular shirts!

These are perfect for both trans* and crossplay-related purposes! What’s the catch though, right? They’re probably super expensive?

HOW DOES $8.28 WITH FREE SHIPPING SOUND???

With a booming economy in Nigeria and more black children than anywhere else in the world, Taofick Okoya was dismayed when he could not find a black doll for his niece.

The 43-year-old spotted a gap in the market and, with little competition from foreign firms such as Mattel Inc, the maker of Barbie, he set up his own business. He outsourced manufacturing of doll parts to low-cost China, assembled them onshore and added a twist – traditional Nigerian costumes.

The dolls represent Nigeria’s three largest Ethnic Groups; Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba so far.

Seven years on, Okoya sells between 6,000 and 9,000 of his Queens of Africa and Naija Princesses a month, and reckons he has 10-15% of a small but fast-growing market.

"I like it," says Ifunanya Odiah, five, struggling to contain her excitement as she inspects one of Okoya’s dolls in a Lagos shopping mall. "It’s black, like me.”

Like Barbies, Okoya’s dolls are slim, despite the fact that much of Africa abhors the western ideal of stick-thin models. Okoya says his early templates were larger bodied, and the kids did not like them.

But he hopes to change that. “For now, we have to hide behind the ‘normal’ doll. Once we’ve built the brand, we can make dolls with bigger bodies.”

The Black body, more so of women, have stood on the opposite side of the narrow Eurocentric standards of beauty. Black hairstyles have defiantly rebelled against and even when straightened added creative magic of Blackness and Boldness. 

Black hair, whether relaxed or natural, locked or shaven is beautiful. Black women are beautiful.

"Swedes are shaking up their language with a new gender-neutral pronoun. The pronoun, “hen,” allows speakers and writers to refer to a person without including reference to a person’s gender. This month, the pronoun made a big leap toward mainstream usage when it was added to the country’s National Encyclopedia."
