Wow, so today marks the very first time I’ve ever watched a video made by Grace. That means that 2 years ago today, I found someone that I could look up to and could really connect with. She’s made me laugh and feel like I could make other people laugh too. I owe so much to her for everything that she has ever done for me. She has no idea, but she is a monumental point in my life. Thank you, Grace. You’re my hero.

ATTENTION!!! THIS is the CEO of the popular online store shopjeen (Erin Yogasundram) proudly wearing fucking black face on her Instagram page. DO NOT support this business. I am appalled that I gave money to this bigoted scumbag. Not to mention, their website had LOADS of “omg ghetto fabulous!!” garments and accessories modeled by - you guessed it - white models (sometimes donning cornrows). PLEASE spread the word as I know that this store is popular for Tumblr users.

Hi, so this post is utter bullshit.

If you took 10 seconds to go to this women’s blog before reblogging, you could easily find out that the person in this photo is not Erin.  Erin is a WOC and looks like this:

Again I’m NOT a small child with blue eyes. I’m a WOC, small business owner who is now receiving death threats due to a disgusting, defaming tumblr post that is surfacing. I did Instagram that photo on my personal account, with a caption MOCKING the ridiculousness of the Lil Wayne costume. It was pretty convenient to leave that part out, and frame me to be the person in the photo (who I repeat is clearly a CHILD). I am a full-figured, brown skinned woman with colored hair and brown eyes. Not to mention, I would NEVER do this.     I employ an extremely talented, diverse team and they make Shop Jeen the amazing success that it is. The thought that the spread of this inaccurate post hindering the company’s growth makes me sick to my stomach.     PLEASE fact check before you reblog stuff like this- this is serious.    I am absolutely distraught that my company’s name is being dragged through the mud without probable cause. This is traumatizing.this is why I look like. The person dressed up as lil wayne in that photo is a small child. The caption, which was left out of the now viral tumblr post defaming me and my company was shaming and mocking the ridiculous costume choice.

From her tumblr, she wrote this:

and when the threats did not stop:

you can read those posts here and here.

But of course, have I forgotten where I am? Ah yes, the land of tumblr where gullible is always written on the ceiling.  Or so they say.

This really sucks for her. Tumblr is the worst at fact checking before spreading shit.

Who’s Alex?

Billboard demonstrating gender stereotypes as most people automatically assume that Alex is the boy.

Actually, I’ve studied design and advertising, and I can tell you that the reason people would look at this and immediately assume Alex is the boy is because, quite simply, the boy is the focal point of the ad.

English-speaking readers’ line of sight goes from left to right and up to down. This ad leads the viewer from the words MEET ALEX etc straight to the boy and then over and down to the girl. I didn’t even notice there was a set of parenthesis with words in them in the ad until I looked the fourth time. 

This is a fallacious confirmation bias, as anyone looking at it will assume Alex is the focal point (i.e. The Boy) and then if they’re perceptive they’ll notice the words at the bottom. Aha! Those damn gender stereotypes gotcha again! Except no, because the ad literally forces you to read it as “Alex is the boy” by the visual language and lines of sight. 

A better ad would have been structured from top to bottom instead of left to right, and wouldn’t have pushed the girl, the real subject of the ad (who, by the way, has been VISUALLY PUSHED OUT OF HER RIGHTFUL SPACE ON THE AD BY HER BROTHER) off to the corner as far away from her identifiers as possible. 

Here, I’ll make you a better ad.

Bam. Shitty stock photo but you get the point. If anyone sees this and assumes Alex is the boy, they don’t have the the ad layout to use as an excuse for their internalized gender shittery. Likewise, the ad isn’t actively trying to make you read it a certain way and THEN making you feel guilty for interpreting it the way they designed it to be.

EVERYTIME I DO IT MAKES ME LAUGH

I WAS WONDERING WHY THE COMMENTS SOUNDED SO FAMILIAR AND THEN I REALIZED.
