    I love Outkast and hip-hop in general, but things like this make it really difficult to defend the music and the musicians.

    “Rappers- er, *some* rappers…”

    How dare Arabic people think they can have something that is unique to their culture without some white people appropriating it! I mean, it’s not like there isn’t a long hisotyr of colonialism, racism, and ethnocentrism from white –

    Oh, there was?

    Mods, I can understand how ‘a male’s’ comment slipped by; he did manage to hide that racist link under a “bit.ly” URL. But Patrice’s comment? Anybody who claims that a Black man defending himself from three white teenagers who were caught breaking into his car has any similarity with the case of a white Latino [...]

    #1: I’m a womanist, not a feminist. #2: Africa has 54 countries and thousands of different cultures. Don’t speak about it like it one homogenous unit. Anyway, this girl has been used as a pawn for most of her young life. She was used by her rapist and now she’s being used by anti-choicers who [...]

    This…is trickly. There is no question that what the Chilean president said was beyond offensive. There is no question that the little girl should have legal access to an abortion. However, body autonomy goes both ways, doesn’t it? If the decision to have the baby is truly hers (repeat: is truly hers ), then she should be [...]

    Other valid reasons why some people refuse to label themselves as feminists is because Feminism(TM) has failed to be inclusive towards many people. All you have to do is read the comment sections on Feministing posts about immigration, trans* issues, Islamic issues, sex workers rights, or even racism.

    Where are these Target stores with the awesome plus-size selection? I’ve been to 2 different Targets in my area where they had stowed clearance racks full of clothes from the misses and juniors section. There were more X-smalls than there were 3Xs!

    The outburst didn’t bother me so much as the fact that she was “taken aback” when FLOTUS called her out. A commenter from Racialicious says it beautifully:

    I think heckling the first lady and then being scared b/c she was “in your face” is chock full of racist undertones. I would say not even undertones, just [...]

    I’m sure it will be right after their series on GetEqual’s “stellar’ record on racism. Oh wait…

    Yeah! How dare a site written for women by women post something about women!

    Nicole,
    Thank you for the apology. I apologize also for getting so nasty.

    Best wishes.

  • Angel H. commented on the blog post Intersectionality, let’s unite!   1 year, 4 months ago · View

    So that wasn’t your last post? Oh, well… BTW, I found your blog. The reason you hadn’t gotten any complaints is because only two other people have posted something about it and one was just a reblog. (No comments on the reblog, BTW.) It’s funny that you call yourself a freelance journalist. Especially when you [...]

  • Angel H. commented on the blog post Intersectionality, let’s unite!   1 year, 4 months ago · View

    If yours is the type of allyship that’s being offered through intersectionality, then it is neither wanted nor needed.

    You should really, REALLY do more reading on the subject before you make yourself look any more foolish.

    Goodnight!

    Oops. Meant to delete that last line.

  • Angel H. commented on the blog post Intersectionality, let’s unite!   1 year, 4 months ago · View

    When someone prefaces their apology with “I’m sorry you were offended *but*…” then it’s not an apology; it’s a cop-out, and it’s patronizing. I am trying to defend the use of the word because I did not mean it to be offensive and did not use it maliciously. The phrase “intent isn’t magic” applies here. [...]

  • Angel H. commented on the blog post Intersectionality, let’s unite!   1 year, 4 months ago · View

    Perhaps it’s the language barrier that’s preventing me from communicating clearly. I’ll try to write simpler from now on. My point is, simply, that it is not the place for a non-”Mulato” to say what is and is not offensive to one. This Mulato is offended. And if you were truly sorry, you would stop trying [...]

  • Angel H. commented on the blog post Intersectionality, let’s unite!   1 year, 4 months ago · View

    ‘Mulatto’ is an accepted term where I live Acceptable by whom? White Brazillians? Women and men pride themselves in being mulattos and upon research I did to write this, I found it is an accepted term. LOL! That’s like someone telling a Black American that’s it’s totally okay to call them a “nigga” because they heard [...]
