My Name is Noelle, (prounced noh-elle). I’m not too great at writing about myself but I’ll give it my best shot. My personality type is INFP . Meaning, if you are too lazy to google it, that I am a deep thinker, enjoy helping others, make decisions based on emotion rather than reason, don’t think too highly off myself or give myself credit, enjoy the arts like writing and drawing blah blah blah… Something that you should do know about it me that I suffer from anxiety and depression. Not the kind of anxiety that is just getting worried before a test, I mean crippling anxiety, the feeling of you gut twisting up and your body going numb. Same goes with depression, I get sad at times, really sad, sometimes I dont leave my bed or I cry until my eyes burn. I dont want sympathy, just understanding. I am a senior in high school and am going to an alternative school (one of those schools where you call teachers by their first name basically. Ask is always open!
So I will be going to Cincinnati comic expo in a couple weeks and am at a lost at what to cosplay as. It helps if you look like the person and I don’t think I really look like anyone.I was Ramona last year. Any suggestions?
"White feminism" does not mean every white woman, everywhere, who happens to identify as feminist. It also doesn’t mean that every "white feminist" identifies as white. I see "white feminism" as a specific set of single-issue, non-intersectional, superficial feminist practices. It is the feminism we understand as mainstream; the feminism obsessed with body hair, and high heels and makeup, and changing your married name. It is the feminism you probably first learned. "White feminism" is the feminism that doesn’t understand western privilege, or cultural context. It is the feminism that doesn’t consider race as a factor in the struggle for equality.
White feminism is a set of beliefs that allows for the exclusion of issues that specifically affect women of colour. It is “one size-fits all” feminism, where middle class white women are the mould that others must fit. It is a method of practicing feminism, not an indictment of every individual white feminist, everywhere, always.
"i don’t support feminism because-"
lol nah we ain’t even gonna talk bye
