– article:
'...The American Psychological Association (APA) officially labeled “traditional masculinity” as “harmful” in a new report.

The label is in the report titled “Guidelines for the Psychological Practice with Boys and Men,” a first of its kind for the association, which was featured in the January issue of “Monitor on Psychology” magazine.

“Traditional masculinity ideology has been shown to limit males’ psychological development, constrain their behavior, result in gender role strain and gender role conflict and negatively influence mental health and physical health,” according to an excerpt in the 36-page report...'

Yeah, I use anti-aliasing. Sometimes you just need something to take the edge off.

A lot of white people on here like to perform their 'activism' and 'desire for diversity, inclusion' but in reality that usually just means forgetting our cultural differences to find common ground on bland and ineffectual moralism.

White folks don't want to hear about how they are wrong and how the ignorance they cling to is a catalyst for marginalization.

White folks want 'diversity' and 'inclusion' as long as it is comfortable.

And when it isn't, they get just has hostile as any racist.

I think the headbanging, eyepopping phlegmatic frustration is from the realization that despite libraries, the internet, and institutions of higher education, white people are still asking us to teach them about us. We barely are coming to understand who and what we are. We didn't build and name these conditions. We are explorers here in this harsh terrain. Go read our findings. Leave us to survive.

I’ll never forgive the internet for training a generation of artists and writers to call what they make “content.”

Boxes have contents. You’re a fucking ARTIST. You make ART. Own it.

@interneteh this makes a really good point: if you show people a problem but don't give them anything to do with it, they just get used to the problem
