- you have legitimate reasons to be triggered by it
- and i am not one to question those reasons
- so just send me an ask
- anonymous if you’re scared

- your wellbeing is worth twenty extra seconds of my time at least
omg one time I made a post about how I didn’t like some comments made about Victorias Secret model, Candice Swanepole, made about Brazil and its people and its culture and I said how here comments were generalization based on stereotypes and didn’t represent Brazil and how what she said could affect people. Anyways I spoke about some of my own experiences in particular and how I’ve had to deal with people who think the way she does.
After that there were a ton of people who supported what I said and gave their own experiences and I remember this one white girl in particular had the audacity to tell me that I should be grateful that the people in my country are seen as beautiful and have a ‘positive stereotype’ while people in her country (USA) were seen as being ‘unintelligent, ugly, lazy and fat’.
And its just like how self involved to you have to be to tell me that I shouldn’t think is a big deal that a grown man asks me if I like anal sex just be cause if my background because at least he doesn’t think I’m dumb and ugly. Like are you actually serious?!!! (Btw this actually happened to me when I was about 16 and she really did tell me that is not a big deal and to ‘shut up and stop whining’).-Maitê
