Crisis pregnancy centers are sometimes called fake abortion clinics because of their tendency to locate themselves near real clinics and use deceptive names and advertising. Their real goal is to prevent clients from having an abortion, even if this means lying. These myths are…

  • How teachers assume groups of three work: everyone does 1/3 of the work
  • How they actually work: One cunt does absolutely nothing, another person doesn't really understand but tries their best, and the third person ends up doing 70% of the work so that they don't fail.

It’s not John Green’s fault that Laverne Cox wasn’t included the TIME 100.

John Green did not make the decision to not include Laverne Cox in the TIME 100.

John Green being included in the TIME 100 and Laverne Cox not being included does not reflect badly on him— it reflects badly on TIME magazine.

Stop acting like children and place blame where it belongs instead of looking for a fucking scapegoat.

So these tweets are actually real.

I really like how she tries to defend herself by stating how much she loooveees Japanese culture

"You guys I did this with Japanese people it’s cool"

"I go to Japan like so much ok I know the culture"

"I know so many Japanese people and even the director was Japanese!"

God these bullshit statements alone just insinuates that hey Japanese people are working with me so I can’t be doing anything wrong or racist, otherwise they’d tell me! 

Yeah because even if you’re an artist at the end of her career and desperately trying to save it, you’re still a well-known name and PoC don’t have many opportunities in this industry and will take any job that’s offered to them. This includes everyone who worked on this video. Why?

Because People of Color are easily replaced. They’re expendable. 

Oh, you don’t want to work with her cause her entire music video is racist? Whatever. We’ll just find another director/choreographer/dancer. 

That’s it. That’s literally it. That’s how it works. So we suck it up and work with these people cause the industry doesn’t value us enough and not working only harms us, not the artist.

I mean, spewing random Japanese words that have nothing to do with your song is just short of saying Ching Chong Long Ting Tong, but you know. She’s just admiring the culture. 

Sure does remind me of this skit:

This is extremely racist and insulting. I’m an Asian American. I studied Japanese for two years. I’ve yet to begin to scratch the surface of Japanese culture and etiquette and I’m not even that confident or comfortable speaking or writing it because I don’t feel as if I know enough about it to say I can speak Japanese. 

Singing random words in a language you don’t know is racist when you use it for the sake of a song that just appropriates a part of their culture so much. 

Then you have your Japanese backup dancers. They all look the same, they’re silent, and “kawaii”. 

Of course, to you dear Avril, this sure doesn’t perpetuate the stereotype of cute, obedient, and submissive Asian women girls right? They’re just too damn cute and fit your set!

God. You’re turning 30. I don’t care if you want to act childish or dress a certain way. But grow the fuck up and stop making arguments that defend your racist actions and try to justify them by name-dropping everything Japanese.

You’re not Japanese. You don’t know Japanese. You don’t know Japanese culture. Your song doesn’t “honor” or “flatter” Japanese people or Japanese culture. It perpetuates the stereotype the West already holds and you try to pass it off as being cute and creative and appreciative and dedicate it to your Japanese fans.

No. Fuck you.
