look who’s finally joined!
look who got pushed to the side
reason no. 12326543742624743 why i wasn’t super outraged about the Merida redesign
every single POC princess is shoved to the end of the line. Mulan is basically unrecognizable.
LMAO I was looking at this image, and I was like… did Snow White get stuck at the end because someone thought she was a poc?
I’m laughing to keep from crying.
True story…when I was a kid, I used to want to be Snow White. There were no princesses of color and she was the only one who even came close to looking like me because she had black hair. (Kind of sad, because my skin was never going to be white. But I wanted it to be.)
Any other PoCs have the same experience?
“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her. She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly. “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.”
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”
this is why performance art is important
So every single person who told me ‘ignore them they’ll go away’ and ‘you can’t let them know they bothered you’ and ‘They’ll stop if they don’t see you react’ and all that bull shit, my entire school career, I want you to look good and hard at this.
I want you to think about what you said.
What you keep saying.
What you are telling your children.
You are making them powerless.
La Cosecha / The Harvest (2011)
“Every year there are more than 400,000 American children who are torn away from their friends, schools and homes to pick the food we all eat. Zulema, Perla and Victor labor as migrant farm workers, sacrificing their own childhoods to help their families survive. The Harvest / La Cosecha profiles these three as they journey from the scorching heat of Texas’ onion fields to the winter snows of the Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humidity of Florida’s tomato fields to follow the harvest and provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of these children who struggle to dream while working 12 – 14 hours a day, 7 days a week to feed America.”
just goes to show you that not consuming animals does not mean you are supporting a system that is cruelty free
Yes and I’m sure that you only eat organic produce picked by unionized fairies in some kind of anti-classist Utopia.
I think the lesson here is “almost any kind of diet you take on to diminish suffering actually isn’t nuanced enough to deal with the complex issues of food production in modern society”
or in other words: everything is fucked
i’ve said it once and i’ll say it again: if you ever say you don’t like science, you just aren’t learning it right
