The Diversity Gap in the highest grossing science fiction and fantasy films. Sad, right? You can see the full study here.

 I highly recommend reading the entire article. 
from the infographic:
Among the top 100 domestic grossing films:
only 8% of films star a protagonist of color
of the 8 protagonists of color, all are men; 6 are played by Will Smith and 1 is a cartoon character (Aladdin)
0% of protagonists are women of color
0% of protagonists are LGBTQ
1% of protagonists are people with a disability

i drew a bunch of elves of color!!

This post reminds me of something that happened a few years back.

I once served as art director for a project where the illustration spec called for characters of a variety of races (in the real-world sense, not the Dungeons & Dragons sense - though the latter was involved as well).

We had one particular artist, tasked with drawing a series of elves, who didn’t quite seem to get what that meant. Their output was basically “white elf”, “another white elf”, “white elf with a tan”, “white elf looking a bit pale”, “yet another white elf”, etc.

When this was pointed out, they were like “oh, yeah, now I get it - I’ll totally fix that with my next piece”.

They proceeded to turn in a picture of a blue elf.

In the end, we had to provide specific quotas for specific levels of racial representation in order to get the point across. It all worked out in the end, but it’s stuck with me ever since that this artist examined the original spec, looked at our feedback, and came to the conclusion a blue elf was more plausible than a black one.

In conclusion: this is awesome.

Read that last paragraph as many times as you need to.

Anonymous asked: Just heard CNN ask, "Should 'America the Beautiful' always be sung in English?" Why do the media always pretend like horrible bigots might have a point?

yoisthisracist:

Because the right wing have cowed our cowardly media into treating their racist views as if they must have legitimacy simply because they exist. Fuck those assholes and fuck CNN.

Many white feminists have claimed that Indians are not respecting “freedom of speech” by demanding that whites stop promoting and selling books that exploit Indian spirituality. However, promotion of this material is destroying freedom of speech for Native Americans by ensuring that our voices will never be heard… . Feminists must make a choice, will they respect Indian political and spiritual autonomy or will they promote materials that are fundamentally racist under the guise of “freedom of speech”? — Andy Smith, Native American scholar, activist, and former president of Women of All Red Nations (WARN)

Brain Shit

porpentine:

i’m feeling brain shit as a term less alienating, less infantilizing, and more familiar than mental illness/trauma/depression

their implicit framing of the subject as hopeless and pathetic (tho they are still useful terms that i will use (i hope i’m not moving towards a macho-ization of psychological pain))

like, everyone has brain shit

shit is something we deal with

Things that are creepy:

  • Persistence after someone has said NO or STOP, or has made it clear they are not interested in your advances
  • Invalidating someone’s “no”
  • Only stopping your advances when somebody informs you they are taken (you are telling this person their “no” alone is not enough, which means you do not respect them)
  • Asking “why” when somebody rejects your advances
  • Asking “why not” when somebody refuses to give you their phone number
