Deleting this Tumblr

Hey guys.

Every once in awhile, I delete my tumblr and start anew. Most of the time, I refollow the people I follow but am unsure if I’m going to do it this time. I will be writing down names just in case. But it’s time for me to start over.

See you again soon.

Lemme reblog again and let you know why casting that white woman as the female lead in “Drive” was so fucking wrong and fucked up.

Director Nicolas Winding Refn literally gave Carey Mulligan the part because she “seemed pure,” like someone he wanted to protect.

No, really. He literally said that shit.

These traits were ones he literally did not consider a Latina for. He picked her specifically because he fit that damsel in distress imagine that’s been coded as white. Latinas were not even given the opportunity to audition for the role.

AND SCENE

Again, Earthsea- Ursula K. LeGuin said of the main character,  My protagonist is Ged, a boy with red-brown skin.”. Everyone in the book (with the exception of some folks whose paleness is specifically noted as strange) is some shade of brown. It was a deliberate decision on the author’s part, to divorce the books from the bulk of fantasy fiction on the market. This is how Syfy Channel cast Ged in their TV series:

Ow.

Silent

Over the summer, I realized that I unconsciously treat people who have lost myvrespect poorly. Not many can see that I am simply indifferent towards these persons without a comparison between them and someone I despise. I say despise because I try, and mostly succeed, in not disliking someone unless they have truly earned it. But not many are used to seeing someone have these blank feelings or gestures toward them without it being for a malicious reason. For example, I tend not to start conversations with persons I am indifferent with. I’m not interested, so why would I ask for information I don’t want to know. But people, in general, don’t like silence. And so when two people (who can speak) are together and silent, they are either doing the silent treatment or are in love.

I am a silent person. In public, I talk as much as possible around friends because I force myself to. I’ve gone days to weeks without speaking at home. So when I’m silent with a person I feel indifference towards, it’s because to me I feel alone.

And I get that that hurts feelings. I was in so many fights with children I barely knew because I was more myself at school back then. I didn’t actively try until high school. And I’ve been trying ever since.

But to me, silence is so beautiful. To just hear the natural world around you can be anything from calming to terrifying. And I live in NYC so there’s always life to listen to. Whether it’s the wildlife in the Botanical guarden or the randomly, huge parks in Queens, or a couple fighting in the middle of the street at 2am.

I remember I used to make detailed stories about people I listened to. I used to try to guess body type, sex, skin color, just by the sound of their voice. When I was very very little, a transgender woman “fooled” me. My mom told me she was male but I decided then and there that what people told her she was would never matter. She was female. And I have never seen it any other way (a rare thing in my neighborhood).

Today I took a stroll and basked in the silence of East 60th st. And thought how, because I am so quiet with the people I am indifferent to, they are one of two kind of people I am, ironically, truly comfortable around. Because there is absolutely no desire to impress. My repsect was lost, and therefore whether or not they respect me is irrelevant.

idk because im not physically or mentally attracted to him and ‘but he likes you’ or ‘but hes really nice’ isnt going to change the fact that im not interested

Damn, I don’t think women know how much that really hurts
