[TW: harassment, threats, stalking, violence, slurs, racism]
So, someone decided to post this submission with a link to medievalpoc to a subreddit called “Tumblr In Action” this morning.
Let’s stop pretending we have no idea where this comes from:
And can we stop pretending as if these supposed “rules” actually mean anything, or are ever actually enforced:
Medievalpoc has received tens of thousands of hits from this particular subreddit from more than 60 separate threads, some of which have hundreds of derogatory comments, using slurs, threats, and racist ‘jokes’.
And it is somehow a “coincidence” that I have had to speak to police four times and make official reports due to threats, stalking, harassment, and other nastiness? That people have followed me around in person without my knowledge or consent because of this? People have circumvented the “ignore” function by creating accounts just to send racial slurs and threats.
The rest of this is going under a cut, because it is truly horrific. Please proceed with caution.
this. makes me so fucking livid.
fuck reddit, fuck alostbird, fuck savannah, fuck omgstopbeingashitty person. to hell. fuck big-gadje-world too, everyone who contributed to this over some sick, twisted version of “accountability.” nothing wrong that MPOC has done even comes close to this TARGETED campaign of harassment.
staff so you’re just going to do nothing as per usual? Kay.
i’m just really over everyone who talks down to black women who want to be open with their bodies and sexuality. like why does wanting autonomy have to mean embracing respectability politics and being one dimensional :/ it’s always the same people who wanna “uplift” one type of black woman who turn around and call black children thots on vine so what is it really
Same with me. My sister asks isn’t there some NAACP or Black Panther I should be getting to. And constantly says that this issue or that issue isn’t about race. Bitch is stupid yo
Naw, I get a lot of jokes, a lot of “Calm down Malcolm X“‘s but I ain’t tripping. Just remember that shouldn’t nobody down you for gaining knowledge. If someone does, they are ignorant, meaning they don’t know. I say try to educate the ignorant and if they’re not with it at all then maybe they’re not good friends. If y’all speak and they learn, then that’s great. Hopefully they do. If they don’t then you need to assess whether or not they holding you back in life. Also make sure you assess what you’re saying, yourself . A lot of brothers fall into traps of what “seems conscious” but is really just oppressive bs that that’s maladaptive to your mental health. When you fight oppression, remember that you should hate all oppression. When you fight for freedom, makes sure you keep the freedom of other oppressed communities in mind.
I feel exactly like this, but for me as a Black woman it sucks because most my “conscious” (read: seems conscious bs) friends IRL are mostly men who are anti-feminist and engage in misogynoir heavily everyday.
I’m in the same boat, just with my mother and grandmother. My mother calls me philosopher and my grandma calls me Angela Davis (thinking it’s an insult, although I prefer Elaine Brown lol).
My father calls me Angela Davis.
I been like this since 1999.
He SHOULD be used to me by now, but still with the jokes.
Being called a baby Malcolm X is a compliment

I’m actually concerned for boys who complain about how different girls look without makeup. Like did you think eyeshadow permanently alters a girls eyelid? Are you frightened when people change clothes
