♥ pocecil defender ♥
love how even one of the most social justice favorite blogs in this fandom has a mod who threatened to cut people for interpreting cecil and carlos as sexual and the other mod backed up that behavior lol
it wasn’t even so much about headcanons as much as they threatened to cut people for it with very violent phrasing though, and they had the forethought to tag it “tw: violence” but you know, not to actually not say that
because as a qpoc i love running into threats of physical harm on account of my sexuality lol
and ofc when i told them that was terrifying the other mod showed up and told me i’m terrifying for shaming ace headcanons or whatever because obviously that was what this was about
i should probably signal boost it or something because obvious reasons but i don’t have the energy or the original post
but i do have this thing where he tried to derail the topic (nobody ever said anything about asexuality not being queer? queer people can be terrifying to other queer people?) and made the strangest fauxpology ever
reminder: whatwouldcecilwear is not a safe space
a sexy historical night vale AU where tamika is still a revolutionary leader and dana is still an intrepid reporter because contrary to what all ur fave white ppl period dramas tell you, PoC did exist before 1960 and did have roles outside of servants and slaves~*~*~*~
California Senate passed a Discrimination bill.
EVERYONE PLEASE. PAY ATTENTION. Especially if you’re Asian.
On January 30th, 2014, California Senate just passed SCA-5, a legislation that would repeal portions of California Proposition 209.
In condensed words, this bill allows schools to DISCRIMINATE AGAINST ASIANS.
To understand SCA 5, we have to remember what Prop. 209 is. In November 1996, Proposition 209 (also known as the California Civil Rights Initiative) amended the state constitution to prohibit state government institutions from discriminating against, or granting preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment , public education, or public contracting. In the 18 years that Prop 209 has been in effect, California has become the most diversified state in the US.
State Senator Ed Hernandez, the one who introduced this bill, claims that due to Prop 209, Non-Asians have a harder time being admitted into state universities.
This bill will ALLOW THE STATE to use RACE, SEX, COLOR, ETHNICITY, OR NATIONAL ORIGIN as a consideration for accepting students or hiring employees. SCA-5 is out to punish Asian-Americans simply because we set the bar too high for getting into schools with high exam scores.
Asian-Americans often need test scores hundreds of points higher than applicants from other ethnic groups to have an equal chance of admission.
This bill goes against EQUAL PROTECTION, our 14th Amendment, as American citizens!
IF WE ALLOW THIS BILL TO PASS. WE HAVE STUNTED GENERATIONS FROM GROWING AND EXPANDING THEIR MINDS, THEIR HORIZONS OF UNDERSTANDING.
IF WE ALLOW THIS BULLSHIT BILL TO PASS, WHO’S NEXT UNTIL THE LAST RACE WHOM IS DEEMED “WORTHY” OF EDUCATION IS LEFT STANDING?!
Xudong Sun, president of American Anhui Association of Scholars and Students, told Xinhua that this legislation is racial and is a serious discrimination against Asian Americans.
He said right now at the University of California and state universities, Asian students account for 36 percent, but Bill SCA-5 would restrict Asians to 13 percent.
He said under-represented minority groups, like African Americans and Hispanics need protection, but such protection should not be made at the expense of Asian Americans.
Here is the Whitehouse.gov petition: WE NEED 100,000 SIGNATURES BY MARCH 18TH. THAT’S 10 DAYS FROM NOW.
Here is the Change.org petition.
PLEASE SIGN THESE TWO TO GET THIS BILL TORN TO SHREDS! and PLEASE. SPREAD THE WORD.
