On UrbanDictionary, it automatically generates a list of words related to the word you looked up. Notice anything?
Google image search “uppity” and look at the screen. Notice anything?
Seriously. “Uppity” has racist implications. Referring to the President of the United States — the person who’s at the peak of the government hierarchy — as “uppity” is racist.

YES i use urban dictionary as a real source for my social education. i’ve seen it cited in so many scholarly publications recently…
to be fair, uppity is never a nice term, whether or not it’s being used as a racist term. it’s an insult. but context matters. the source matters. 
i’m sick of this ‘insulting a man who is black automatically means it’s racist’ shit. 

I looked on JSTOR and found that 18 recent scholarly publications used UrbanDictionary.com in their papers. Guess we aren’t reading the same things?
YES, context matters. YES, the source matters. That’s why this is racist!! Just because YOU didn’t know it was racist does not erase its historical context, or stuff like this, where we can see that its current colloquial use is tied closely to perceptions of the Black community.

    Good to see you back!

    Thanks!  It’s very on and off at this point, I don’t think I’ll be able to keep the brief momentum I had at the beginning, but I’ll try to drop in here and there with a good eye-roller when I can!

    TUMBLR LOVES INCEST BUT NOT WEINER.

    I dunno about incest but yeah, some things that I have never really considered defensible are defended every day, but Anthony Weiner’s personal life is something we should forget about him over. 

    Ridiculous.

love for Anthony Weiner January 2011 - June 2011.

Christ, THIS is what I’m talking about…
the weak leaders of the Democratic party turning on Weiner, I guess, should be no surprise, but if the internet, and specifically the left leaning Tumblr Users, have also backed down then that’s absolutely pathetic.
People can agree or disagree with his politics all they want but THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS what Weiner did was an issue for two people: him and his wife. 
"DUHH BUT HE LIED ABOUT IT." You ignorant shit, I don’t know when we adopted such high standards for politicians but if you’re hiding behind this you’re completely full of it.
So, we ruled out “lying.”  All that’s left is his supposed “affair.”  Look, he didn’t cheat on his wife.  At least, within any definition that the general public should be worried about.  If his wife thinks he did, that’s for her to decide. 
People like the above GIF maker and commentator don’t like that he was caught with his pants down.  Maybe they’re parents and, like the great Louis CK bit goes, they’re too afraid to talk to their shitty kids for 5 minutes to say, “don’t send sexts, you fucking idiot, this is what happens.”  Maybe they decided, like the rest of Tumblr seems to, that NOW personal choices are worth crucifying people.  I’ve read the defense of some fucked up shit on this blogsite that I will probably never understand, so the fact that I can’t get away from people turning their back on Weiner on here is really just beyond mind boggling. 
Get your fucking shit together, friends.  Seriously.
Apparently Reese Witherspoon asking people to adopt higher starndards is worth throwing complete and utter fits over, but literally within 24 hours Tumblr Users can turn their back on someone for basically doing exactly what Reese discouraged.

    cute overload

    [Removed photo was of a grey squirrel so fat it was pretty much globular.]

    Things like this shouldn’t be seen as cute or amusing; animals like this one have been seriously neglected by their caretakers. 

    Humans are naturally quite fat creatures (compare a human infant to a chimp or gorilla infant). We have a continuous layer of subcutaneous fat, which few if any non-diving animals have, and we can cope much better with being overweight* than other animals. An obese human has way more stamina than, say, an obese horse. You just rarely see an obese horse.

    Pet/captive animals are dependent on their caretakers for supervising their health. Letting that squirrel get to that size is as neglectful as letting it starve.

    (Of course, I don’t know the story behind this squirrel and whether it was the result of neglect. It may be a wild one that lived by the dumpsters at a sweet factory, and this is a photo of it before it was put on a diet. It still shouldn’t be placed in a gallery of cute or funny animals.)

    *Leaving aside for now the discussion of what ‘over’weight even means

    I will rave about something and then admit that I have no background information or context to the subject that I ranted over but still assume I am right and just.

    Reese Witherspoon

    The general tumblr consensus is, “HOLY SHIT FUCK YOU REESE I AM A TOTAL SLUT AND THAT MAKES ME AWESOME”

    Nothing in the quote said anything against personal sexual choice.  No one gives a shit if you like to fuck, believe me.  But the fact that it’s well known that one can gain fame by showing their tits is pathetic and, yes, the system, the norm at this point. 

    Guess what, the system is dominated by men and isn’t going to change anytime soon (big fucking surprise).  So, maybe the means (or the influences people have) in which “celebrities” work their way to the top should be adjusted so that the work involved is actual work and not just putting out a sex tape in order to gain fame. 

    Or maybe I should just start posting n00dz to get my blog popular and shout down anyone who questions the quality of my output.

    what is ACTUALLY funny about that “white pride” blog

    is that it looks like pretty much every other tumblr blog in existence (a trove of reblogged images of Mila Kunis, Tina Fey, Katie Perry, etc)…

    it just sort comes out and says it specifically only gives a shit/focuses on white people.
