[IMAGE: A series of gifs.
First Gif: John Barrowman holding a black card and asking the question “On a clothing label, which instruction is indicated by a solid black triangle with a cross through it?”
Second Gif: A bald white man with a sleezy expression replies “This is where we want the women back on the team, don’t we?”
Third Gif: John Barrowman with a mocking expression saying, “Or maybe you could help with the cleaning of the clothes every so often.”
Fourth Gif: John Barrowman smiling at the camera.]
i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant
"hahahaha women do laundry right john? you with me, john?"
"don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”
This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.
I hope I live long enough to attain even a tenth of Barrowman’s “you fucking martian” face.
Since your blog is well known, I figured I could submit to you to gain awareness about this issue. I go to a school in NY, and these kids decided it would be funny to bring a Confederate flag to school. There was a European handball game against a group of black kids, and they won, so to commemorate their win, they decided to bring out the confederate flag. These kids are all over their twitters and ig’s talking about “#confederate flag”, and calling black people niggers. The school only suspended them but we want more. Teachers are trying to silence us and other white students are telling us to stop talking about it. Today a kid got suspended for tweeting “my cab driver is a nigger” and he got suspended. Now #freeray (the kids name, because our white student body feel as if this is an injustice to him) is trending in my school. I just want awareness basically. There are many racist incidents that happen in my school but my deans do NOTHING. Please help, thank you.
