It’s a shame that this happened. Her comic was perfect and nobody deserves death threats.
I love her comic and its a shame she got bullied off for telling the truth.
that comic was great. jesus white people y’all need some serious humility and love in your life.
White people need to chill.
Doesn’t this just prove her point?
From her page:
Please do not send me any more messages about how awful it was that I received death threats. I am beyond pissed that everyone has taken my comic about white privilege and the effects of institutionalized discrimination, and has turned it into a rallying cry against online bullying. This was not the point I was trying to make. Stop making me the face of bullying, and do NOT make me the face of “White Allies”. ——————-THERE ARE COMICS AND POSTS LIKE MINE BEING MADE BY PEOPLE OF COLOR ALL OVER THIS WEBSITE, AND THEY DON’T RECEIVE 1/5TH OF THE ATTENTION THAT I HAVE GOTTEN. THE FACT THAT MINE GOT POPULAR SPEAKS VOLUMES TO WHAT EXACTLY WHITE PRIVILEGE IS. I may not have deserved this hatred, but I do NOT deserve ANY praise. I want you all to know that Education is NOT where oppression ends, it’s where it begins. Thank you all for your kind and thoughtful words, but it’s over now. There’s nothing left for me to say.
“Consider the results from a 2013 study of more than 24,000 students from 22 different American colleges. When asked if they’d lose respect for a man or a woman who “hooked up a lot,” 28 percent of men said “yes” for a woman but “no” for a man. (Only 4 percent of women said the same thing.) Another 2013 study of almost 8,000 students at a Midwestern university arrived at a similar conclusion: Both men and women disapproved more of a woman who had casual sex (defined as sex with someone whom they’ve known for less than one month) than of a man. Even more interestingly, these studies reveal that guys who seek out casual sex are the ones who are more likely to disrespect females with the same interest. For example, in one study referenced, each additional hookup reported was associated with a 4 percent increase in the odds of men holding the double standard (while the opposite was true of women). To put it another way, “sluttier” men are more likely to slut-shame women—or at least, hold negative views toward women whose promiscuity approximates their own. This not only exposes a serious hypocrisy, but it seems counterproductive: Disrespecting women on whom your casual sex depends can only lower your chances of finding willing partners in the future, right? So why would slutty guys feel this way?”—Bros, This Is How Your Slut-Shaming Is Backfiring. A Sex Researcher Explains (via ryeisenberg)
