    vagrats:

    been working on a zine for the past week and a half… hopefully i’ll have hardcopies by Otakon… regardless, the pdf will be on ~gumroad~ by mid-August and i’ll sell hard copies in the near future.  wao!!!

    yes it is about exactly what it lookss like.

    How do you believe alienating and being so sour to white men contributes to any sense of agreement and integration of people of different races? Furthermore, isn’t it hypocritical to /exoticize/ a white guy but make some disgusting face over “i like your bow?”

    And it’s also self-defeating to use an angry persona against someone who will use it to mock other women. I’m a woman, affected by western standards of being unbecoming for any slight crude gesture, but I know that form of subversion is isolating and preaches to a choir.

    alright, i’ma address something right up so we can straighten out this mess y’all made for yourselves.

    y’all know i’m Black, right?  apparently not, because you’re criticizing me for being potentially racist/exoticist while projecting your own race onto me.  don’t worry though, i’ll pick my hair out and draw myself with a fro next time so it’s more clear.
    i had crushes on Black folk because i grew up in a predominately Black community and those were the people i met during my developmental stage, establishing them as the romantic norm; perhaps this contributes to my internal struggle of normalizing attraction to white boys?  a mystery.  contextualize your sorry asses.  oh wait, you can’t?  because you’re making embarrassing assumptions based off cropped preview photos?  awwwwwwww son.  son.

    now that we’re all clear on how badly you’ve embarrassed yourself, i feel like the rest of your beef falls apart entirely, but we gotta get to this:

    How do you believe alienating and being so sour to white men contributes to any sense of agreement and integration of people of different races?

    i don’t.  i never said anything about racial integration.  if anything, what you can interpret from the previews of this zine (the previews which generally feature 1-2 panels when the zine itself is around 24 pages), i’m promoting racial segregation.  it’s almost as if the entire purpose of the zine is to explain why i don’t like being attracted to white boys.

    since i’ve established myself as a racial segregationist, i’m gonna take this opportunity to continue being rude in response to your cheese eatin’ ignorance because i like making white people want to avoid me (maybe i should make a zine about it).

    Furthermore, isn’t it hypocritical to /exoticize/ a white guy but make some disgusting face over “i like your bow?”

    no, because i live in the United States where whiteness is the established cultural norm and is therefore impossible to exoticize in a societal context.  do you know what exoticism even is?  it is when a dominant culture sexualizes a culture that is foreign and/or oppressed.  how do you even exoticize white bread?  put sriracha on it?  that ain’t tasty.

    And it’s also self-defeating to use an angry persona against someone who will use it to mock other women.

    i’m not a woman.

    my bow is pretty cute tho.

    I’m a woman, affected by western standards of being unbecoming for any slight crude gesture, but I know that form of subversion is isolating and preaches to a choir.

    you are a white woman living in a western country affected by western standards.  you don’t experience the same cultural conflict of White Boy Thirst.  you don’t experience the same cultural implications of reacting angrily to unwanted advances.  this zine is not about you.  it is not about you.  it is a satirical look at the experiences of a feminine person of color who struggles with internal, familial, and societal conflicts over being attracted to someone who is a living representation of oppression, with a little look at a nice dash of internalized racism.  if you are curious about learning more about this anthropological phenomenon, there’s a zine coming out in the near future called “White Boy Thirst” that you may want to pick up to learn more!

    if not, take your trashy self-entitled salty cracker ass and get off my blog.

    also, note to my followers, because this is tumblr: don’t bother this person.  it’s not constructive.  i’ve made my response and i’m done with it.

    “will you and vagrats actually scream at each other if we buy art from you???????????????????” – asked by Anonymous

    oceanwrath:

    we will scream at each other if you buy art from us. we will scream at each other if you don’t buy art from us. we will scream at each other if you do not approach us at all. we will scream at each other long before and long after otakon 2014 starts or ends. we are screaming at each other right now

    i would like to confirm everything about this.

    i am preparing for battle.
