I’m a disgusting despicable horrible cheater.
I don’t deserve to live or to ever be happy again.
redlightdistrictresident said: Jess, you mentioned you're marrying a white guy, right? My boyfriend is white, and his parents are hesitant about him dating me because I'm Mexican. They think that I want to get preggers with his kid so that I can claim child support, they've judged me based on the fact that my parents are divorced, and his dad has straight up said "oh great, another minority without a degree." Have you dealt with this level of bigotry from your bf's parents/family? (sorry if it's too personal, love the blog!)
Yes I do plan to marry my astounding boyfriend who is white, and I do have to deal with the same level of bigotry from his family. For first impressions, I stayed quiet and just ate my food and bit my tongue, but when I’m with them again, I’m not gonna be silent. They think I’m a sweet Black girl but I’m much more than that. His family didn’t even want him in L.A because there are Black people and Mexicans being gangsters over here omg!!!!
I had to get my boyfriend out of that mindset and it wasn’t easy, but now he knows and he’s educated because of me. Do the same with your man and never censor yourself around him OR his parents/family. Call them out but don’t do it in a mean way. Laugh and agree with them and say “Oh my gosh, you’re so right! Then I might get deported lol how funny!” Laugh really loud and make the situation very uncomfortable. End it with something like “What are some other racist stereotypes white people came up with to shame and dehumanize my people?” like do that shit. It makes them so uncomfortable and it’s hilarious.
My buddy Tom baked a cake for his Argentinian friend to cheer her up after the world cup loss.
…they are no longer friends.
I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.
Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)
And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.
Oh, and by the way…
Because you wouldn’t want to be historically inaccurate.
Reblog this if you want a LONG anonymous message saying what they think of you.
