A Right To Be Hostile
23 November 2013 @ 5:23 PM
"A second pillar of white supremacy is the logic of genocide. This logic holds that indigenous peoples must disappear. In fact, they must always be disappearing, in order to enable non-indigenous peoples’ rightful claim to land. Through this logic of genocide, non-Native peoples then become the rightful inheritors of all that was indigenous—land, resources, indigenous spirituality, and culture. Genocide serves as the anchor of colonialism: it is what allows non-Native peoples to feel they can rightfully own indigenous peoples’ land. It is acceptable exclusively to possess land that is the home of indigenous peoples because indigenous peoples have disappeared."

Latino stereotypes and representation in the media

Watching this video makes me so fucking mad, especially at those parts when those scenes when the guy calls the half Puerto Rican half salvadoran woman a Mexican, the old stupid racist white guy telling those kids to “learn English” and that he doesn’t like to be spoken Spanish to in “his country”, and of course those fucking white people dressed up as labor workers with stereotypical latino name tags with the words “spic and span” in the back at “cinco de mayo parties”

"Heteronormativity isn’t just about the presumption that everyone is heterosexual. The expectation that boys woo girls feeds into your mind the expectation that relationships are necessary for fulfilment, and you are less than if you are not having particular kinds of sex with a particular, and a particular kind of, person at particular intervals. It’s about what Lauren Berlant calls the love plot, in which love is produced as a generic text enabling society to interpret your life as following certain conventions. It’s not about what you want, it’s about what you’re supposed to want. You’re not encouraged to think about what you want in relationships, if anything, so much as you are encouraged to fit a script. Heteronormativity messes things up for everyone, straight people included."

"Men celebrated our sexual liberation — our willingness to freely give and enjoy blow jobs and group sex, our willingness to experiment with anal penetration — but ultimately many males revolted when we stated that our bodies were territories that they could not occupy at will. Men who were ready for female sexual liberation if it meant free pussy, no strings attached, were rarely ready for feminist female sexual agency. This agency gave us the right to say yes to sex, but it also empowered us to say no."

"People don’t need to be saved or rescued. People need knowledge of their own power and how to access it."
The correlation of exploitative/culturally appropriated imagery and violence against Indigenous women is a hot topic right now. The mainstream narrative of Native American women is one that hypersexualizes us, and paints us solely as helpless victims in need of rescuing. Let’s all be part of changing that narrative. We know that our sisters are powerful, are capable, have agency, and self-determination.
