Apparently, Asian, and Bitch: Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott orn Asian opponent: Don't vote for the ching-chong! by Violet lkonomova August 16, 2018 at 11:09 AM comment v bizarre-transmission: thettasigma: ferventfox: awesome-everyday: internetdumpsterfires: Black people can’t be racist. Ugh, okay. The remark by this black woman was disrespectful and based on race. It was rude, bigoted and uncalled for. But no, in an anti black world, black people do not have the social, political or systemic financial power to be racist. Racism implies that beyond hurting and insulting that asian woman that this black woman is connected to a system that has the power to negatively impact this woman’s existence. That dark skinned black woman who’s an incumbent running for state office likely has about the same amount of systemic power as i do. And furthermore, there could be an argument made that deteoit is chocolate city and perhaps she does have that infrastructure of black networks to truly effect her opponent, but idk I was in Detroit last year and it looks a lot like Brooklyn does now. White and gentrified. White people with money, who control our political systems, finances, and predominant social narratives are claiming urban space like they’re colonizing pioneers looking to take the new world. Detroit isn’t the same anymore. Anyway, black people can be shitty insensitive bigots but we do not have the social capital to be racist, particularly not in the united states. “That dark skinned black woman who’s an incumbent running for state office likely has about the same amount of systemic power as i do.”  Ahahaha: No. A congressperson is the definition of systemic power. You can’t bitch about lack of political power when we are talking about elected politician.  Clearly the world isn’t so anti-black that it couldn’t vote her in.  Chang is also a first generation American, while Scott, to my knowledge, is not, and she specifically made anti-immigrant comments. She also has “power” within the context of her own ethnic community and she used that power to direct racism towards other African-Americans who supported Chang by implying they were somehow traitors, essentially dictating how they ought to act based on their race, particularly Chang’s husband for his interracial marriage (I don’t give a flying fuck what race you are, negative comments about interracial marriage and mixed race people are racist. period. end of story).  Even if I did accept the prejudice + power model or racism (which I don’t as that is neither the etymology or common usage of the word) Cook’s comments would certainly fit the bill. She made race based attacks on people based on types of marginalization that she is exempt from; and did so from a position of power partially gained by the fact that she is exempt from these types of discrimination.   It’s racist. Stop making excuses.  “That dark skinned woman who’s an incumbent running for office likely has about the same amount of systematic power as I do.” Is this person on drugs? They’re claiming that… A political person… A congresswoman… Has no power in the country in which she was elected… By the populace… As a politician. That, or they’re a politician too. Apparently we can say anything now and it makes sense. Huh. Also these remarks are the absolute epitomy of racism and if anyone refuses to see it, they’re not purely misinformed. They are delusional. *literally calls an Asian person ching chong*“How dare you say I’m being racist??” Thank you for attending today’s lecture on cognitive dissonance.
Butt, Club, and Girls: RuPaul Would'Probably Not Let a Transitioning Queen on Drag Race Strai Ta wi Photography: Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP <p><a href="https://ithelpstodream.tumblr.com/post/171523211800/in-a-new-interview-with-the-guardian-rupaul-stood" class="tumblr_blog">ithelpstodream</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>In a new interview with the Guardian, RuPaul stood firm on his stance that trans women and bio-queens are unwelcome on Drag Race. After explaining that drag’s political power lies in the dissonance of “men dressing up as women,” Ru was asked if he’d allow a “biological woman” to compete on the show.</p> <p>“Drag loses its sense of danger and its sense of irony once it’s not men doing it, because at its core it’s a social statement and a big f-you to male-dominated culture,“ RuPaul tells Guardian. &ldquo;So for men to do it, it’s really punk rock, because it’s a real rejection of masculinity.” When asked if trans women can be drag queens, he brings up season nine contestant Peppermint, who was the first out trans woman to compete on the show. “Mmmm. It’s an interesting area. Peppermint didn’t get breast implants until after she left our show; she was identifying as a woman, but she hadn’t really transitioned.”</p> <p>The interviewer goes on to ask if RuPaul would allow a trans woman who was actively transitioning to compete. “Probably not. You can identify as a woman and say you’re transitioning, but it changes once you start changing your body. It takes on a different thing; it changes the whole concept of what we’re doing. We’ve had some girls who’ve had some injections in the face and maybe a little bit in the butt here and there, but they haven’t transitioned.”</p> <p>These statements go to show how antiquated RuPaul’s conceptions of trans identity and the queering of gender really are. For someone who is deservedly lauded as an icon of genderfuckery, the fact that RuPaul still sees drag as a boys’ club is disappointing, not to mention the fact that he reduces trans identity to whether or not a person has had surgery. The notion that the only true power to be found in an art form that has expanded so much since RuPaul came up seems insulting in the face of the incredible female artists — both cisgender and trans — who are doing drag today, largely thanks to the influence of Drag Race.</p> <p><a href="https://www.out.com/popnography/2018/3/03/rupaul-would-probably-not-let-transitioning-queen-drag-race">https://www.out.com/popnography/2018/3/03/rupaul-would-probably-not-let-transitioning-queen-drag-race</a></p></blockquote> <p>Wait&hellip; if he won’t let cis women be on the show, then isn’t he just being consistent here by viewing trans women as real women?</p>

My point still stands. </p> </blockquote> <p style="">Okay.</p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="140" data-orig-width="618"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/622d61bb2e7ac576fec909f06c428dd2/tumblr_inline_p1utegrCoU1tb6pwe_540.png" data-orig-height="140" data-orig-width="618"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="472" data-orig-width="658"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/0e078dbb13b933860fa6fe5db9b83f05/tumblr_inline_p1utfa5aoA1tb6pwe_540.png" data-orig-height="472" data-orig-width="658"/></figure><p>The guy also has 6 honorary doctorates of science from Johns Hopkins, Rutgers, and other universities.</p> <p style=""><br/></p> <p style="">You can say that his professional work is engineering and not science, and be correct.</p> <p>I’m making the assertion that he has the accolades and professional experience, especially enough overlap, that it’s a distinction without difference in his case.</p> </blockquote> <p>The honorary thing is iffy. People who worked for those degrees tend towards disliking an honorary overstepping, especially with how little you can do to get one.</p> <p>It’s less Bill Nye is like the above and more like Bill Nye is just like Linus Pauling.</p> </blockquote> <p>I don’t know if he’s that good, but let me tell you something<br/><br/>when non science communicators start talking science, people get scared. we talk about wierd funguses and parasites and hyperparasitoid wasps and viruses and what not and the strange (and exicting!) shit they do and the next thing you know, you have 398 different books and video games and webcomics exploring zombies and aliens parasites/virus and fungal zombies and a whole nine yards. which at least the audiance of those only has a mini freak out when they find out that, say, cordyceps(<i>last of us</i>) is a real thing (but only a few insect species are susceptible).<br/><br/>so for big mainsteam infodumps, we give very safe and secure and generally well recieved science communicators a long lead.</p> </blockquote> <p>I meant more in Pauling’s thing on megadoses of Vitamin C. Great chemist, but knows fuck all about nutrition and medicine. And part of me gets the idea that people don’t get that Bill is a damn fine engineer, but his science credentials, are of the pop variety, which can be good to get kids into the sciences, but the way people treat him as an authority on anything aside from mechanical engineering leaves a pretty bad taste in my mouth, especially given that I know exactly how he got his start, and I’ve seen more accomplished people do a better job.</p> </blockquote> <p>and then people ask how we get there and we say, well we’d have to start with stem cell research and then we’d have cloning tech and organ donoation wouldn’t even be a thing and then (and then people get VERYVERY SCARED) next thing you know there’s a human born human front and everyone is rewatching gattaca and blade runner and getting VERY SCARED again. I mean damn, if people find out what we’re doing with parathanogenisis research in the mean while, y’all would flip a lid. <br/><br/>also, “vitamin megadose therapy”: actually very effective for some nutritional defecencies and related diseases(scurvy is an old one: large doses of vitamin C which yes is water soluble and is thus pissed out, treats scurvy faster than the exact capacity dose, rickets and some others), but yes negligble effect on healthy people. and it promoted people looking at world hunger as a problem to be solved to look at total nutrition(something not thought of in the 1960′s), not just kcal quantity. and for healthy people, megadosing does nothing that a placebo doesn’t do unless it’s once of the few fat soluble ones, and thus is altogether harmless as a ritual.<br/><br/>and of course, it serves as an mental innoculation against leaving things like bright’s disease(s) declared ‘untreatable’.<br/><br/>sometimes you have to come at a problem or set of problems squirrelly and sideways.</p> </blockquote> <p>I’m referring to megadoses being a panacea, which Linus kinda started (and has been shown by other to be not the case) of somebody with a particular degree going out of their element and making a fool of themselves.</p> <p>What I’m going on here is that Nye wass great for getting kids into the sciences, but he’s not an authority. He’s an entertainer first and foremost. He’s not an authority on most of the stuff he purports either, and even then has problems in still being the guy from Almost Live who had science demonstrations that three Brits who actually work for Universities and have relevant degrees as well do an even better job of teaching while entertaining (helps that the three have some education credentials to back it up). Like I said his knowledge is of the pop and elementary variety, and very often (especially nowadays) strays into guy who doesn’t even try to research what he’s talking about in the slightest.</p> <p>As for squirelly thinking, that’s great when it produces repeatable and verifiable results, but often it tends toward pseudioscience, which gets debunked time and again. And when I say pop science, I’m talking things that have come around that stick because they’re popular, even if they’re actually wrong (for example elemental Iodine doesn’t boil ever, it just sublimates, which is something various home chemists have accidentally discovered isn’t true).That’s some of what’s going on with Nye, people are now taking him as an authority when he has none, and may in fact be wrong.</p> </blockquote> <p>Okay, lay it out. what is it that you’re scared that Nye maybe wrong about?</p> </blockquote> <p>LEts see fors starters on the more recent one his whole gender show. On the older one, it’s had some stuff that’s gone the way of the dodo (how he described atoms, even by 6th grade I knew it was long out of date), the whole myth of freezer batteries, his newer thing on nuclear power, hell have a video by somebody else.</p><figure class="tmblr-embed tmblr-full" data-provider="youtube" data-orig-width="540" data-orig-height="304" data-url="https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DjwZs226GTWI"><iframe width="540" height="304" id="youtube_iframe" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/jwZs226GTWI?feature=oembed&amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;origin=https://safe.txmblr.com&amp;wmode=opaque" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></figure></blockquote> <p>Also can we please stop pretending that honorary degrees mean jack shit?</p>
