The phrase “black on black crime” needs to go. 90% of all crime in America stays within a racial group yet only this one has a name.

Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.

These Women Are Using Selfies To Reclaim #Latina Identity On Tumblr

reclaimingthelatinatag:

Reclaiming The Latina Tag was featured on BuzzFeed!

Here’s the story, which includes some quotes yours truly provided for the piece and a few of the beautiful selfies some of our followers have submitted:

Tumblr — like Twitter and now Facebook — uses hashtags to categorize conversations on various topics, but what Xochilt Montano found browsing the #latina tag in late 2012 shocked and angered her.

 The Reclaiming the Latina Tag founder told BuzzFeed that when she “dared to peek at #latina on Tumblr,” she was shocked to see it was “ALL porn.”

 “That really pushed me over the edge and made me incredibly angry so I had the idea to ‘reclaim’ the tag.” 

Montano sees the selfie as an “act of resistance” against stereotypes.

RTLT regularly makes calls for “Bomb the Latina Tag” sprints, where readers submit photos tagged #latina with information “anywhere from descent, memories, achievements and goals, or random thoughts.” 

Many contributors have been reblogged by fetishists when they tag their selfies.

“It’s pretty tiring having to block all the fetishizing perverts, but it’s worth [it] if we stop seeing hypersexualized (without permission) or demeaning memes on the latina tag. And to creepy people who fetishize yo y mis hermanas: this GIF is for you.”

Readers also submit questions or comments regularly via Tumblr’s Ask feature.

Taking back the tag is about celebration, says Montano: “I want to let people know that there are Latina politicians, writers, activists, scientists, athletes, academics, artists, and award-winning actresses and musicians.”

“I want to celebrate the accomplishments of Latina women and also show that Latinas have different nationalities, races, sexual orientations, ethnicities, psychical characteristics, and social classes…”

“Reclaiming The Latina Tag strives to be a safe space for Latinas to get to know their history and also become inspired by the amazing achievements of other Latinas.”

Montano is the founder but there are four other contributors who also reblog and create content.
