I'm a CSE major at UCSD, spend most of my time coding and sleeping. I like to write and read in my free time, and am trying to figure out a social life at school. I'm bisexual, polyamorous, and very verbal about social justice. Feel free to use any OC on here however you wish, but please notify me beforehand.

Bioshock Infinite and Racism - Part I

I wanna play this so bad

I don’t think I ever want to play this game. Especially with the first pic of what looks like a witch hunt and 2 black people about to be burned at the stake…

This left a bad taste in my mouth…I don’t want to play this shit.

should somebody tell these kids that racism like this actually existed here in the US or should we just wait until they get to high school and take history

??? ? ? this game was like??? amazing??? like jesus fucking christ, it’s supposed to show you how racism was back then and a big part of it is doing what’s right like in that first one you get a choice to stone the couple or the douche bag guy in the top hat??? like come on u guys

Yeah the whole point of this is not only to criticize racism at the time, but racism still present in modern society. It’s an active condemnation of racism, and portraying the extremes is a very important tool for doing that. We are not going to sweep racism under the rug, we have to remember it always because to do otherwise is to deny its continued existence in our society.

"What the fuck nobody should be in the army this is not a thing we should be fighting for" Sorry, I'm joining the army and will love every minute of it. There are a ton of benefits and you're protecting those you love. Fuck off

Congrats on that imperialism dude

Get out of my inbox and never return please

Lololol protecting those you love? If you wanted to protect the ones you love, maybe you’d be at home making sure they can identify and present however they choose without fear! You’d be campaigning to make sure that their disabilities, physical or otherwise, do not lessen their value as a person. You would be doing your utmost to make sure that the oppression they face every day gets addressed and fucked the hell up because what really matters to the people you love is that they don’t get ridiculed, hurt, or looked down upon for who they are. Not you learning to shoot a gun at other motherfuckers just looking to get out of the oppression they were born into. Stop rationalizing and heroizing what amounts to marching as a conquering soldier. Being in the military is not good, it does not make you good, it does not make you brave. It is supporting a system our country never stood for, a system of blind faith and closed lipped following of orders. Reassess your patriotism, because it is misplaced.

Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.


It actually has nothing to do with cancer, since skin cancer doesn’t typically kill people before reproduction. Its more likely associated with UV damage to cells causing serious medical conditions that kill you much earlier.

Honestly the hand movement really grossed me out, and I know that’s what Mads had in mind. Cracks in the human suit.

For a long time I referred to my girlfriend as my partner because it was gender ambiguous and I liked the idea of people not knowing if I was straight or not. Now I’m steadily dating two people and partners is the simplest way to refer to them, and no one assumes I’m straight after that
