Anonymous asked: Hey, on October 12th you responded to some idiot's submission by saying, "you are gay."

It'd be cool if you would refrain from disparaging other oppressed groups in your responses to the dumb white masses. Thanks. :)

Anonymous asked: Certain members of the white proportion of human being are and have been absolutely disgusting to people of other races and those people are monsters. However it is wrong of you to assume that every white person is horrible because that isn't how it is. Even if the vast majority of white people are racist pigs there are plenty of us who aren't.

Anonymous asked: I was immediately taken back by the term cultural appropriation. It seems to be a negative term for cultural assimilation but in a pejorative context. Most of the articles I've read have used it as only applying to those who belonging to a dominant culture (i.e. white people).
