Ha'dih, my name is Whess: 24, nonbinary, pan, very herbivorous, Carrier nation. Currently residing most northernly and hocking teeny bopper jewellry.
Huge nerd. Like, quantum level dork.
like famous poc are held up to these incredible standards to be an acceptable role model and if they do one thing wrong suddenly everyone withdraws their support completely bc “um, they’re a little bit problematic”
but scarlett johansson can literally stand by a child rapist and support apartheid and it’s like “yeah but i can still like her movies……….”

If you’re poor, the only way you’re likely to injure someone is the old traditional way: artisanal violence, we could call it – by hands, by knife, by club, or maybe modern hands-on violence, by gun or by car.
But if you’re tremendously wealthy, you can practice industrial-scale violence without any manual labor on your own part. You can, say, build a sweatshop factory that will collapse in Bangladesh and kill more people than any hands-on mass murderer ever did, or you can calculate risk and benefit about putting poisons or unsafe machines into the world, as manufacturers do every day. If you’re the leader of a country, you can declare war and kill by the hundreds of thousands or millions. And the nuclear superpowers – the US and Russia – still hold the option of destroying quite a lot of life on Earth.
So do the carbon barons. But when we talk about violence, we almost always talk about violence from below, not above."
