I went to the Indian food store today with my mom and I stumbled upon these, among a dozen other skin whitening products marketed towards both men and women. I’ve always known Fair and Lovely is a thing but Fair and Teens, a skin whitening product targeted specifically at young girls, makes me so so sad. That image alone comparing the before and after images of skin tone is so sickening to me and only perpetuates the shadism desi people experience every day in an effort to look as white as possible because apparently the only way to be beautiful is to be white. It just makes me so angry that products like this exist and that they’re indirectly responsible for a lot of young brown girls internalized hatred for their skin and their race. Speaking as someone that’s been there, please don’t fall into this trap. Your skin is beautiful no matter how dark or light it is.
We still haven’t even gotten past the 19th century yet around here.

"Gina can land all 8 blows in a blistering 3 seconds. And how much does this maelstrom combine to generate? An amazing 4,800 pounds of force. That’s like a North Pacific giant octopus pounding you with all 8 of it’s arms. Translation: In 3 seconds, Gina could brake your ribs, give you a concussion, shatter your nose, rupture your spleen, cause internal bleeding, and put you down for the count."
but women can’t be superheroes
I want to be her.
ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW THIS SHIT.
Gina you are amazing and attractive and an example to us all.
You ALSO look like a buffed up Abby from NCIS so

I’m not the most well spoken person in the world, my thoughts move too fast for me to be verbally eloquent.
But, if you bring up the topic about why you only consider “work that disrupts the status quo, should always require some higher level intellectual interaction, and…
on the issue of racism, this is a great illustration.
minority racism towards white people is at most an inconvenience. a singular experience where their race works against them. a truly escapable type of experience because after it, they return to a society tilted in their favor. in fact, even during the experience, they never leave it. they never lose the advantage.
white racism towards minorities is systematic and destructive. we get jailed, shot dead, have our rights ignored, our rights slashed, neighborhoods targeted, job opportunities decreased, healthcare options constrained and more. all these things work together to create a understandable hatred towards whites. a hatred born out of pain, experience, oppression and disenfranchisement. a hatred that makes way more sense than white racism which is born out ignorance. a hatred that is fueled by the knowledge that whites, even those who swear to not be racist, by their actions and words perpetuate the system of oppression. their words of solidarity ring hallow.
i for one have never trusted easily but white people have a even harder time gaining my trust. very very few do. what’s most disheartening is when you extend that trust only to be betrayed. i had that happen to me a few months ago. that cut was deep but it was a learning experience. 99.99999% of whites are programmed to hate us. that’s just the truth.
False rape accusations are an anomaly.
True rape accusations are a norm.
You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.
Re-blog now, read later.
"Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”
All lost in a book. Another image that will never make it into the mainstream media.
