Important for ALL of us to consider.
Yesterday I attended a protest against Columbus Day in Los Angeles. The rally started on Olvera Street across the way from Union Station then to the cathedral in downtown L.A. We stood in front of the church for a half an hour, preaching of what obscenities the church allowed against the indigenous people of the Americas. The church was also built on sacred land.
While we were there, there was a group of white people staring at us as we protested on the other side of the street. A little whitey mocked us while the ignorant white girls sneered. An old white man we nicknamed Skip shouted “Boo!” while our words were said through the microphone of the injustice the church brought upon 100 million people.
Later, we marched with our signs held high to the Columbus statue in Grand Park of downtown L.A. It was set there in the park in 1976 (first picture of the set), the plaque stating the Columbus discovered America and is a “legend among immortals”. We returned to Olvera street where there were dancers celebrating the indigenous people that were once here.
It was hot but it was worth marching for this—to change Columbus Day just as Seattle has done. There should be no holiday marking a terrorist and murderer.
Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day!
If I had known, I would have gone. Though I would probably punch those white people mocking them. I just really hate Columbus Day, and my mother can’t understand why. She doesn’t understand what we fucking did to the native americans and that celebrating a fucking disgusting man who felt entitled to rule over a nation and stole natives for slaves and
Here’s a way for you ignorant white americans who celebrate Columbus Day to understand with a comparison. Columbus was literally on the same level of Hitler. But hey! If we’re celebrating one villain, why not celebrate another? August 19th! Celebrate Hitler’s Fuhrer Day by exterminating Jews! Then celebrate Columbus Day the second Monday of October by enslaving a peaceful nation!
hopefully you fucking get it now.
I really hate columbus day. i hate that this was what i was taught in school, and that i was just another ignorant white girl. But i’ve learnt so much more about the truth of the world since arriving on tumblr; the racism that is instilled since kindergarten.
it is sickening.

I wasn’t aware that strong, sexually empowered women are in fact a demeaning social trope.
If you had ever played the games, or even mildly researched them, you’d know that Bayonetta is both highly sexualized for the benefit of the viewer AS WELL as being sexually empowered for herself. If you want to hate the former, you have to hate the latter, and that’s rather misogynistic, don’t you think?
okay theres a difference between real people choosing to be sexualised for their own benefit and men designing female characters to be sexualised
no matter how you wanna dress it up as this Fictional Character Created By Real People as making her own choices. she still in fact was made by a person who choose to make her look like that
yes, it is a problem that the person criticizing games does not research or play the game but you have to remember who makes the games and who is deciding that the character is empower by those things [hint: its cis het abled white men]
the designer of Bayonetta is female, Mari Shimazaki. she said that the design was a self projection power fantasy to empower herself while feeling beautiful, what she “aspires to be like”. for her own sake.
do your damn research.
OH MY GOD
..I made a thing.
they saw the chance and fucking sprinted with it
