Some Ground Rules:

- This blog is free of all racist, ableist, sexist, fatphobic, queerphobic, and transphobic shit and I will tolerate no one who brings these things into my space

- I don't mind answering questions or asks about social justice topics but please remember that I am not here specifically to educate you or anybody else

- I will gladly tag all of my posts if anybody feels triggered or uncomfortable by what I blog but again please remember that this is my blog and I will always put my own safety and mental health first

- This is my space and if you respect me then I will respect you. Simple as that.

Let's keep it positive folks! : )

Did anyone else find Grouplove's song Colours super offensive? I understand that they were trying to sound supportive, but they ended up just sounding dismissive and patronizing on one hand (it’s the colours you have/no need to be sad/it really ain’t that bad) and suspiciously like white-privilege!splaining on the other (so when you see me flying by the planet’s moon/you don’t need to explain if everything’s changed/just know i’m just like you). Not to mention that they culturally appropriate the fuck out of the music video. I’m pretty sure you can symbolize how you and your white hipster friends are “othered” in society (HA) in other, less offensive/extremely racist ways Grouplove. The irony that your name is “Grouplove" is not lost on me. Oh yeah, and fuck you.
