Repeat after me
On a tv show having ONE black character in a sea of white people is tokenism.
Having ONE queer character in a sea of straight people is tokenism.
Having ONE woman in a sea of men is tokenism.
Having ONE POC in a sea of white faces is tokenism.
Having ONE trans person in a sea of cis people is tokenism.
If you are dedicated to real representation and developing real fleshed out characters then you will write black people with other black people in their lives who aren’t just family members, queer people with other queer people in their lives who aren’t just love interests, women with female friends both cis and trans, trans people who’s support network are like 90% trans.
If my identity only exists as a singular counterpoint to everyone else’s it’s not representation IT IS TOKENISM.

Is this for real?! Please tell me this is a parody site. I mean I don’t like her anyway but this is just… *walks away hands up*
oh my godddddd there is a new swedish reality tv show where they are tracking down internet trolls and confronting them about the death threats they’ve sent to people, since it’s actually illegal.
watching them try to explain how it’s not them is the best entertainment i’ve ever seen.
this episode ended with them fining him 5000 SEK to be paid to the victim!
guess what America should do
did everyone just quietly forgive pharrell for being in blurred lines
Oh my god! Fucking thank you!
Defenders of Black women can be full of shit too, don’t think that because occasionally a dude speaks up for us, that he is immune to being a complete ass at times. There is no shield from irresponsibility, just because a person does a good thing periodically. Don’t get it twisted and put these dudes up of pedestals, but get rough with a Black woman when she isn’t impressed with remedial effort.
