One recent example of how racialized bodies are abused happened recently. At the New Chaucer Society Conference, I spent a portion of my conference tweeting one night at #NCS14 in a “twitter rant” or “PSA.” In it, I related the incident of another junior colleague who had an incident happen to her at one of the NCS cocktail hours. In it, a cisgendered, male, able-bodied, and white junior colleague decided to articulate vocally his surprise that she, a WOC (woman of color) medievalist, had such a “good job.”

Likewise, he also proceeded to school her in how she should be a medievalist by suggesting that she should teach “ethnic fantasy literature” to undergraduate students. My colleague replied, I have neither expertise in ethnic literature nor in fantasy fiction. However, even this clear response did not seem to stop this male white medievalist from explaining her place in the academic world. And her place is apparently not one of authority in medieval studies—where she has completed a Ph.D., written peer-reviewed articles, and obtained an academic job—entirely because her body is non-normative.

Intersectional racism/sexism means that my colleague’s non-normative body will always have questions and “advice” like this lobbed at her (and yes, also lobbed at me). Likewise, no one will ever ask or “advise” this white, male, cisgendered, able-bodied white junior faculty member to teach ethnic fantasy literature or wonder surprisingly or loudly about the fact that he has obtained a tenure-track job in medieval studies. This is a classic example of white, male privilege. And yes, his comments to my WOC colleague are a form of racism (racial/gendered microaggressions). The structures within academia and our field have imagined authority as white, male, upper-middle class, and cisgendered. Divergence from this standard operating body is imagined as a disturbance.

Whenever people point to Mary Shelley and say “a woman invented sci-fi you know” I just think “well, I mean, technically a woman invented the whole concept of authoring books as far as we can tell but hey who’s keeping track”

This is fucking bullshit right here.

No, not the Ferguson crisis happening because that is important and critical, but this fucking post right here.

Some people use tumblr as a getaway from the world around them. Sometimes this is quite vital to them. So you can’t fucking blame a person for not reblogging current news posts if it means protecting their goddamn mental health.

I’m all for educating oneself about what’s going on currently, and I encourage that people at least make themselves aware of what’s happening where and why. But don’t you dare fucking hate a person because they are doing what’s best for themselves and their mental health. We’re not being fucking ignorant. We’re aware. We’re informed, which is the most a lot of people can do from in front of their computers and desks, but don’t you fucking judge people for not reblogging something or whatever.

What’s happening is terrible, yes, but hating people for not putting their mental states at risk is also fucking terrible and disgusting.

I’m fucking pissed off at a whole fucking lot of you. Bye.

This is important, because there’s a difference between someone ignoring whats going on because they don’t care, and someone trying to protect their mental health so that they don’t spiral down even worse from all the negativity that’s going on.

If you harass, attack, put blame on someone because they’re trying to keep themselves from falling into a very, very bad pit of anxiety/depression/any other mental health issue that could stem from any of this, then you are horrible.
I understand that what’s happening in Ferguson is inexcusable, hell I’m reblogging what I can to spread awareness or news or anything of the sort because it’s not right at all. But people with mental health issues who are badly affected by what’s happening there and need to tumblr savior/post block what is happening should not be shamed for doing so, because what good does it do to put someone’s mental (and maybe even physical state) at risk as well with what’s happening?

it does no good at all.

So please just be aware that there are people out there who do genuinely care, but need to be safe for there own personal reasons and have to stay clear of what is happening, please.
Tag your posts, be conscious of and respectful of other people who are triggered by the events that are occurring.

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!

"PALESTINIAN GIRL, YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD"

"When someone enrols in the medicine school that one of the longest schooling required profession, by the time they finish school they will be around 30-or at least on their late 20s. But not for this girl; Eqbal Asa’d is a Palestinian Muslim woman that started the Medicine school when she was just 14 years old, ‘myhijab.info’ reports. Asa’d got her Bachelor degree in Medicine with Honors and was set by the Guinness World Records as the youngest doctor in the World, according to the report. She has been signed to go to Ohio, U.S to continue her education even further and become a Pediatrician."  - Source

YOU GUYS SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. SHE IS A FEMALE, A MUSLIM AND A MINORITY. AND SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. 

WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING MORE ABOUT HER?
