people act like cis is something “tumblr SJWs” made up but the term cisgender was first coined in 1994 and has been used academically for years. wikipedia has had a page explaining the term since 2002 (half a decade before tumblr was even a thing)
deb morris specializes in photographing tiny waves - three to thirty centimeters high - breaking on the coast near her home in new south wales. “my ‘waveart’ is my photographic passion,” she explains. rather than just capturing frozen moments from this beautiful landscape, i have found a whole new hidden world to investigate. i endeavour to capture those moments the naked eye misses, trying to provide an alternative look to the average wave shots of today.”These make my eyes feel comfortable and relaxed I don’t know how else to explain they’re just beautiful but in a calming way
Certainly, a majority of whites do not seem to view most racist joking, commentaries, and other routinized racist actions out of the dominant racial frame as morally wrong. Such actions tend to be viewed as harmless and “no big deal,” indeed often just good interactive “fun.”
This no-big-deal viewpoint prevents most from perceiving how such racialized performances cause substantial harm, and it also links to a common defensiveness when they are asked about their racist commentaries. When challenged, most whites will feel defensive and assert their virtuousness. Many will say something like, “No, of course we don’t intend our jokes to hurt anyone,” “They’re just jokes,” or “You people are too sensitive.” This reaction is a contemporary version of the old notion that whites are morally superior. Even when they do racist performances targeting Americans of color, the old racial frame accents that they, as whites, still should be considered to be “good” and “decent” people. The dominant racial frame not only provides the fodder for whites’ racist performances, but also one means of excusing those performances. For most whites, at least some white-racist commentaries and performances are just part of the normality of U.S. society. For that reason, most people do not reflect much on them.
