People are so isolated, and so alone, and so suspicious, and so competitive with each other, and so sure that they are about to be conned by their neighbor, or by their mother, or by their sister, or their grandmother. What’s the use of having fifty percent of the world’s wealth, or whatever it is that you have, if you’re going to live this pathetic, terrified life
Thank you for hating us Italians@Anonymous
OMG I sthis going to be a thing for real ?? Where RACIST people are upset because I pointed out how racist they are and how it affects ME??
Don’t you realise how ridiculous you are?? ITALIANS ARE RACIST AS FUCK!! They are up there with Austrians as some of the most racist people in Europe, hands down and I will not let such petty emotional manipulation silence me!
Italians men DO dehumanise and exploit African women like myself. I said earlier that about 40% of prostitutes in Italy were from Nigeria alone because I remember seeing it mentioned in this documentary. Now some other sources like this one claimed that it is actually as much as 60%!! What does that say about a WHITE country in Europe where the overwhelming majority of prostitutes is from the heart of Africa?? Other than that most Italians men are sexual, racist deviant and pervert who find pleasure in dehumanising and exploiting us!!
I will not get silenced on this!! NO, NO NO!! Especially since most of these prostitutes are trafficked, tortured and killed. There is a RACIST, SEXUAL trafficking of African women that feeds the monstrous, fetishistic needs of Italians men and NO ONE talks about this!
“The team begins their journey in northern Italy. As many as 20,000 Nigerian women work as prostitutes on Italy’s streets.
They meet Rita, who tells Kleeman she sleeps with up to 10 men a day, seven days a week, for 20 euros a time. After five years of prostitution, Rita still hasn’t paid off the 50,000 Euro debt she owes her traffickers. She is also forced to pay them 300 Euros a month in ‘rent’ to solicit from her particular patch of pavement beside a highway.
Rita says customers had beaten her badly in the past but she has no choice but to continue working on the streets. She tells Kleeman she has sworn to repay the debt to her traffickers”
I will let no one try and silence me on that. You, Italians are absolutely gross. To have the audacity to come at me for talking about the vile shit going on in your country, the vile shit you put black women and black people through, while acting as if you were the victim is another proof of how irrepressibly nasty you are.
Mediterranean men are just gross. They would throw racial slurs at us then in the same fucking breath proposition us for sex. This is what I have been through with these pigs as soon as my breast started showing!! This here, is sexual abuse and harassement and I should not have to shut the fuck up about it, just to please people as gross and racist as you!
And yeah, Italians are not ashamed of their racism, very very far from that actually!! They are not ashamed of treating immigrants of colour in their country like shit. They are not ashamed of throwing bananas at black football players during matches. They are not ashamed of making monkey noises when black players touch the ball. They are so racist that they would even racially abuse the first black player of their OWN fucking football team. Who does that, if not racist savages?? Who?? Italians do!!
While many Europeans football teams have so many players of color that white players are even in minority in some cases, Mario Balotelli, has to go through the racism of his OWN country men. Calling him all type of animal name, throwing abuse at him and contesting his nationality because he is ‘black’.
For anyone who still has any doubt out there about this, ITALY IS A RACIST SHIT HOLE, one of the most racist places in Europe. Which speaks volume considering how incredibly racist Europe already is as a whole!
I would advise dark-skinned POC not to visit that hole and spend any of their money on a people that do not respect us and still see us as animal. Especially if you are a black woman, watch your back out there and be safe!
A lot of the discussions on this website about women of colour revolve around convincing white people we are capable of free thought/action, while attempting to silence the women of colour who feel like there are societal barriers that make us incapable of doing so. This perpetuates the idea that there should be shame in oppression. Keeping up appearances and showing a unified front to white people seems to be the most important thing and I disagree with it and would like pan-African and pan-Muslims blogs to remember that while unity is important, it is oppressive to treat us like a monolith with only one mind and experience.
There always seems to be this need to pander to the white gaze and I’d like to see folks move away from that. You can’t speak for WOC if you pander to white feminists because they have yet to fully give a damn about intersectionality.
And from what I’ve seen on Tumblr lately, WOC haven’t mastered intersectionality either. We have a long way to go and I hope that pride and egos don’t get in the way of us educating ourselves.
Blechk. The more I see of this Olympic coverage on Tumblr the more my belief in that people who scream liberation are far too interested in slogans, symbols, and repetition than critical thinking on the images they see.@vagabondaesthetics
I know right?? Most of them are safely sitting in their house in the west while their peers back home are going through hell.
I am beyond fucking sick with EVERY western feminist WOC. All of them, I just can’t anymore.
Mehreen Kasana who is an AMERICAN PAKISTANI, has been bullying Saudi women for mentioning that Saudis women are FORCED to wear the Hijab so they are indeed OPPRESSED. And that stating otherwise is very dangerous and is following the rhetoric of those who oppressed these women!!
CAN YOU FUCKING BELIEVE THAT THESE WESTERN ASSHOLE FAUX-FEMINISTS HAVE A WHOLE BLOG DEDICATED TO SHUTTING DOWN THE VOICES OF NON-WESTERNERS WHO DISAGREE WITH THEM AND SPREADING MISLEADING AND DANGEROUS INFORMATION, JUST TO FUCKING PROVE WHITE FEMINISTS WRONG??
Can you believe this??
Mehreen Kasana is a vile piece of shit and she is very dangerous and arrogant at that!!
we are dying but you keep telling me to smile.
Some of you are so busy worrying what white people think, about colonialism . that you forget that poor WOC in the GS ( global south ) are dying at the hands of MOC
You so busy with whitey. that you forget that the fucking revolution need to happen at home by any means necessary. or Poor WOC in the GS will keep dying..
you class and educational privilege, and academic feminism , can’t stop feminicide.
Pride , patriotism , Nationalism .. can’t stop feminicide either.
A women a tumblr told you that her oppression was real. that no matter what what racist people say or do .. the motherfucking point is that the oppression is real. and you triggered her but dismissing it cause Goddess forbid that whitey be looking, because you would have to acknowledge how fucked up fucked our people are. ( and by all that is sacred .. if you motherfuckign dismiss this point because it happen in withey country’s too . I’m going to go all fucking hulk on your asses. )
WE ARE NOT THE SUM OF COLONIALISM! y’all need to cut that shit out..
patriarchy is killing us .. the few women of the GS who make it out , or either very fucking lucky or class privileged. look if some of you are not being oppressed i’m real fucking happy for you. but when you dismiss the oppression that is very real for poor WOC in the global south to shut down white feminist, white racist fucks, then you ain’t about revolution. you’re just about yourself and racist white people. In fact you are like those white feminist you hate so much.. talking about agency .. and shit.. when some of us do really fucking need to be saved… if we didn’t why the fuck did Harriet Tubman needed to exist to go save her people ,.. why the fuck did we need a Haitian revolution.. you so busy .. with protecting the country’s image and defending MOC ( who by the motherfucking way are the one killing us now are the primary motherfucking oppressor in our day to day lives) from the white feminist and the white people .. you forget. that some do need help getting out.
but hey .. you deserve protection.. not some Poor WOC in the GS nope.. after all what is the most most fucking important fight in your life is to fight white feminist with all your might.. too bad so many poor WOC in the GS will be dead . when you get to tackling the in country fuckery they have to deal with
Reasons why if you’re a Black woman with a time machine you should head to Igboland first
- Igbo women were the breadwinners. They dealt in the market and handled money, their husbands gained their wealth from working on the farms. If you’ve read Buchi Emecheta’s “Efuru” you would have seen a perfect example of this, and of how a good woman was one who had a great sense of business.
- If you’ve read “Efuru” you would also notice the ease with which an Igbo woman could marry and divorce.
- A good wife-to-be was expected to have had boyfriends, Igbo society generally did not try to control female sexuality.
- Igbo people did not frown upon sex work. “Free” women were accepted as being part and parcel of society and could carry out sexual liaisons as they saw fit.
- There were no restrictions on a woman’s movement. Igbo women could travel far and wide in the name of business, visiting friends or family, running away from home etc. They did not require a chaperone.
- Igbo society had spaces for trans women (and trans men too!).
- Women could marry women once upon a time in Igboland.
And I will tell the women to tell the men and kids and animals, “DON’T LET THEM GET OFF THE BOAT!”
being a fat brown woman you’re fighting two ugly wars
- the thin is beautiful war.
- the white is beautiful war.
Wouldn’t this have to be clarified a bit? Something along the lines of having it be the last 20 murders of trans women that we know about?
Honey, that sounds kind of like a derail. Fact is trans WoC have it much worse than white trans…
Not to mention that all confirmed deaths are reported. ALL OF THEM. ESPECIALLY murders. They might not be on the evening news, but they are documented SOME PLACE. And the documentation allows us to know that of all transfolk that have died or been killed, MOST of them are people of color.
Unless there are hundreds of thousands of dead, white transfolk whose bodies have never been discovered, then we can safely say that you’re more likely to be the victim of death if you’re transfolk of color. That’s not to say that white transfolk aren’t in any danger, but it IS to point out that white privilege PROTECTS EVEN white transfolk comparatively.
The desire to follow the “scientific,” “legal” letter of the law (rather than the spirit of the law) in regard to this is not simply an attempt to derail; it’s an attempt to lessen the potency of the disparity between what happens between white transfolk and people of color transfolk. It’s an attempt to discredit the reality of trans people of color so that trans whitefolk don’t have to bear the burden of being complicit in a system that privileges even queer Whiteness. It’s the adult way of saying, “I have it bad, too. So you don’t get to say you have it worse.”
In other words, it’s, irrefutably, racism. Plain and simple.
Regardless of what peanut gallery derailments occur in every conversation like this on the internets… I just have a question and some input.
I would LOVE to know who all of these white trans women this contentious blowhard is in contact with that they’re basing this inflamed crap on. Issue is real, but this is crap. Sorry!
I’m not amused by men, trans or otherwise, and queers in general, or anyone, butting in to politics surrounding trans women and dividing us on race lines, and responding to some supposed segregation within trans women’s experiences and lives and getting mad about it based on some casual observation of what trans women do and say online.
I actually give no concern to opinions like this! I don’t care.
Segregation and white-vs-PoC issues just being stuck onto trans women’s lives like a stamp is SO ridiculous. This might TOOOOOTALLY SHOCK YOU but racism happens to play out in a way different for trans women than you might know, just like it plays out differently for everyone.
But since everyone is so eager to hear what a man says it’s REBLOG-REBLOG-REBLOG. If amplifying a PoC sounding off about a bunch of trash makes them less guilty about being a white person for 5 mins, COOL! Why question anything?
Trans women experience a specific type of segregation: TOTAL AND UTTER SEGREGATION FROM ONE ANOTHER ON AN ABSOLUTELY ONE-ON-ONE PERSONAL BASIS. NO COMMUNITY WITH ONE ANOTHER WHATSOEVER outside of online interaction.
So everyone who thinks they have a lot to say about this, have fun being right all the time! I laugh at you. If I wasn’t white, I would probably also cry.
I am the woman who originally pointed out this was a derailment made by a friend of mine. I am a trans woman of color. Fuck you and check your privilege, you racist fuck. It’s racist. We deal with the same fucking kinds of racism that other groups have, just with little extras. You obviously do not get how racism plays out if you think shit like that doesn’t affect trans women. When everyone would rather talk about a white trans woman being kept out of a beauty pageant rather than a black trans woman being arrested for defending herself, there is racism in the trans community. YOu do not get to decide what is actually racist, cracker. I am trans. and a woman. And a person of color. Your racist if you don’t see the racism that is affecting trans women of color and just generally shitty too. We are the ones who mainly get killed. You honestly make me so mad and are great proof that just because someone is trans, that doesn’t mean they can’t still be a total racist. This isn’t about men. I made the point it was a derailment. This is about racist shit like this
