The Double Minority

In response to anyone who thinks they have an fierce inner black woman in them and is not in fact, a black woman

See the thing about that fire and that “fierceness” is that it’s born out of our oppression, out of always being told that we are ugly, that our bodies are too fat or too muscular, that we don’t have the right kind of hair — and having to deconstruct all those things and tell ourselves that we are beautiful even though society is telling us that we are not.  

That strength is born out of always having to defend ourselves against white supremacy and anti-black-woman-patriachy. From years of not seeing ourselves represented in anything aligned with beauty, of buying products that are made to make us look like not ourselves.

So there is no way you could have an inner black woman in you. You have not experienced our struggle, you don’t know it, you haven’t lived it, and you can’t imagine it. 

See, you can’t sit with us, because we haven’t been able to sit at your table since our existence in this country. And while we were being excluded from your table we made our own, and it is fabulous and fly. And of course you now want to try and have a seat at our table, take our table, use it and ignore all the labor that went into creating THAT table.

But nah, sorry boo boo.

You ain’t never going to be us, you can try to wear your hair like us, you can try to dance like us, talk like us, wish you were us, but know this —

YOU-WILL-NEVER-BE-US

White gay men & white women make me so sick with this shit, you could never in your saltine, tapioca, white bread, mayonnaise life ever encompass even a half of a percent of what a Black woman is.

I have always found this somewhat hypocritical. Since on many occasions I have had to deal with black females basically mimicking many of the behaviors and mannerisms of gay black men. We are all the minority here. Even if you are a white gay male. Can we focus on building each other up?

bless them for letting baby girl keep her heritage

I peep them braids and that dress

I was just thinking this. She actually takes the children back to visit their family in their home country and they study about their own cultures. She isn’t one of those white people trying to assimilate her non-white children. 

She doesn’t use her kids as props and accessories, and she loves and cherishes them all equally it looks like.

Not to mention how she lets John (Shiloh prefers to be called John) dress and act how they like

Also, I’m pretty sure her wedding dress has her kids’ drawings on it, which is just unbelievably adorable.

it does have her kids drawings on it, they also helped to write the vows and Maddox the eldest boy made the cake with his friends, which is probably why he looks so nervous in the picture of them cutting it.

Every single thing I hear about this wedding makes me so happy even though they’re complete strangers to me because it just seems so joyful.

I remember reading a while ago that when they hire nannies, they have a nanny from each child’s country of origin, who is fluent in their country’s native language, and can teach not just the individual child but the whole family about that country and culture. It’s really incredible how non-assimilative they’ve made their household.

John does realize that people are already marrying inanimate objects and dogs right?:

Korean man marries anime pillow

Man to marry his VW Beetle (and he has apparently already consummated the relationship over 1000 times)

Woman marries building to save it from demolition

Woman marries dog

Man marries dog

So you see John, when people who are against “marriage equality” use this as a reason to oppose it they do so because crap like this is already happening. We are already sliding down the slippery slope.

So it appears the only dumbass machine on the Daily Show, is you John.

Slippery Slope fallacy….

The slippery slope fallacy would only be in play if I didn’t have concrete examples and was making wild claims. However I have several examples and these are just the first few I culled from google search, trust me there are many more than these.

You’re creating a false correlation. You’re assuming that marrying animals/objects is BECAUSE of same-sex marriage. It’s not. Do not create a false line between two unrelated occurrences. The fact that two consenting adults are now allowed to marry is not the reason for the examples you provided. 

So you see John, when people who are against ‘marriage equality’ use this as a reason to oppose it they do so because crap like this is already happening. We are already sliding down the slippery slope.”

And, yet, in most places in the world, gay people still can’t even marry, so maybe instead of marking it down as the “slippery slope effect of same-sex marriage,” you should reevaluate how your society doesn’t want to give two consenting adults marriage rights because they are of the same sex but will let some random asshole marry his anime pillow and countless of heterosexuals marry and divorce three months later. Maybe the reason “we are already sliding down the slipper slope” is because heterosexuals have made an entire mockery of marriage as an institution to a point where it no longer holds so much weight that some person can marry his fucking car. But, no, I’m sure the problem is “the gays” and their need for trivial things like equal rights.

Take a seat, boo!

You’re quickly becoming one of my favorites for posts.

Thank you for cutting through the bullshit.

Thank you!

Oh, and just because I’m the mood to to keep bitches seated, let me also point out a few things:

"Man marries anime pillow":

"True love can take many forms. In this case, it has taken the form of a Korean man falling in love with, and eventually marrying, a large pillow with a picture of a woman on it.

As in: this man is interested in the female form, however it may be printed. Whether on a pillow, or a piece of cardboard, or a wall. He specifically “married” a pillow with a female picture on it. That makes him heterosexual, and delusional, because he seems to not be in love with the pillow as so much with the character:

"…the ‘magical girl’ anime series Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha."

Not that being in love with a pillow is less delusional, but he didn’t just marry the inanimate object for no reason. He didn’t pick a random pillow. He picked a specific one because he is in love with a fictional female character.

But, just so we’re also clear, it mentions nothing about the legal status of the marriage, only that a special ceremony was performed in front of a priest. Depending on the place in question, a religious/spiritual ceremony does not equate to a legal binding contract. In Korea, in specific, it does not. This is not a legal marriage sanctioned by the law. So keep your bullshit link to yourself.

"…has wed the pillow in a special ceremony, after fitting it out with a wedding dress for the service in front of a local priest.”

"Man marries VW Beetle":

"You see, Smith is actually GETTING MARRIED to his Volkswagen Beetle. He loves ‘Vanilla’ so much that he calls the car his girlfriend.”

Note: no mention of the car as an “it” or a male. 

As far as this article in particular is concerned, he didn’t marry the actual car. It reads:

"Smith has actually admitted to having, er, relations with his car and will be wed to it in due course.

Whatever that means.

"Woman marries building":

This, literally, has nothing to do with sexuality. The woman is an activist who is trying to make a point. 

"If corporations can have the rights as people, so can buildings,’ said Aivaz, referencing a Supreme Court decision on political advertising."

"On her Facebook wedding invitation page, she explained that her intent is to reclaim the warehouse as a place to address the needs of the neighborhood."

And, specifically, she is not performing a legal, binding ceremony. She wants to challenge the laws for a point, but her ceremony isn’t legal.

"Woman marries dog":

Full title: Woman marries DOG in ‘romantic’ wedding ceremony - after marriage to man didn’t work out.

Sorry, I couldn’t hear you over her HETEROSEXUALITY. 

There is also zero statement here on whether or not her marriage is legally binding.

"Man marries dog":

It’s satire.

Which brings me to my final point: I question the veracity of all of your links. Provide proper sources next time and I won’t feel compelled to shit on your entire life like it’s the Oregon Trail and about to die of dysentery.
