Anonymous said: Am I racist if (from a general perspective) I'm not attractive to women from African descent? There are certainly exceptions, but not many. I don't dislike them personally or mentally, but I'm hardly ever physically turned on by them. Is this considered racism, or simply preference?
Racists always write in thinking that this fake-ass dichotomy is somehow going to make it OK for them to spout their racist ideas about who they’re attracted to (short answer, uh, your preference is racist, you fucking idiot).
I’ve seriously answered this literally 100 times, but, one thing that’s always fascinating is to think about what kind of special brand of asshole is so full of themselves, so sure that their own whims, desires and preferences are somehow innate, unchangeable and uninfluenced by culture, that their mere existence somehow means that they’re automatically correct. Like, how little do you have to examine yourself and the world around you that this could even be a question you might pose, you piece of garbage.
Gentle reminder that people working in customer service are paid to be nice to you and you should not fucking flirt with them because you’re probably making them extremely uncomfortable you piece of shit don’t force us into engaging your gross ass
And after they tell you they’re married, don’t send them a huge bouquet of roses with a note saying “You look beautiful today,” especially if they haven’t even seen you that day and can only assume you’re watching from a distance through a high-powered telescope.
And if you screw up and do THAT, don’t follow up by sending an apology note - not for being a huge creeper, but because the last time you saw them they must have been terribly hurt that you didn’t mention how beautiful they looked when they’d clearly gone to great effort to impress you.
(And that, readers, is when I quit my job.)
Fuck I’m walking downtown and I pass a group of guys staring at me and I think “great catcall time” but then one guy goes “you look like you could kill a man a million different ways with just your bare hands”. This. This is an acceptable comment to give a girl on the street.
This was one of my favorite teachers ever, he didn’t believe in homework and was just the coolest dude ever
Teacher: I won’t be here tomorrow so I left worksheets for the teacher to give you.
Kid: why can’t we watch a movie?
Teacher: because the school board doesn’t like us to show you movies that don’t have anything to do with the curriculum. They say that movies are for home and we need to keep your home life separate from your school life.
Me: then why do they give us homework?
Teacher: Samantha, please. Whatever you do. Bring this up with the principal because that’s the best argument I have ever heard.
