Every time a cis person reblogs a gender of the day a fairy dies
srsly cis friends
it’s in their FAQ stating specifically for you not to reblog the gender of the day. genderoftheday is a blog for non-cis people, their posts are for non-cis people. please respect that.
“My friend Quinn told me about a folder on her computer called, “The Ones We’ve Lost.” They are the letters she’s gotten from young girls who dream of being game developers, but are terrified of the environment they see. I nearly broke into tears as I told her I had a folder filled with the same. The truth is, even if we stopped Gamergate tomorrow, it will have already come at too high a cost.”
Oh, and the “proof” she provided? She claimed her classmates were “stupider” than her and got in because they were of color, but they got in because they had better SAT scores, better TAKS scores (which is the standardized tests Texas used at the time), better entrance essays, better extracurriculars, and better volunteer work than she did. She just couldn’t fathom the idea that a person of color could do better than her.White supremacy means even when you’re NOT better than a POC you still assume you are because the alternative is unfathomable. That’s why so many people ALWAYS assume affirmative action means the more qualified person isn’t getting the job. Surely the white person is more qualified! That’s why they’re more represented in these jobs and schools to begin with right???
