i feel sick every time i see an obviously candid photo of a japanese school girl’s legs/thighs/body on my dashboard
like the ones of them just on trains or walking or in a store where either you cant see their face or its cropped out
those are taken by perverts/pedophiles and are a huge problem in japan
the girls in the photos are generally underage (and anyway school uniforms are ALWAYS used as age markers so….) and DONT know the photo is being taken
this kind of thing (as well as upskirts, etc.) are SO common in japan that its actually illegal to produce/sell phones or cameras that allow you to silence the shutter sound so that you cannot take a secret photo of someone
and every time i see the photos on my dash i get chills because its no a cute “kawaii” photo for your pale blog its disgusting

Where are all the libertarians and conspiracy theorists rn? Your prophecies/fears are being realized but I guess you really only meant martial law in affluent, white communities

The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything.
