Allied Progress: the continuing battle with self and others against bias #privilege #blacklivesmatter
___________________________________________________

Had a bit of a back and forth with a former classmate and work colleague on Facebook about cultural appropriation. It's one of the biggest issues I am struggling with on this journey of awareness, intersectionality, privilege, and equality.

What the hell, +Macklemore & Ryan Lewis? With Same Love, I thought you got that gender equality mattered. Why are all the women eye candy or big and sassy black women? So sexist. And playing into racial stereotypes, too. I am so, so disappointed.

Former VFX technician, prior Marine, feminist, geek.
Introduction
Former VFX technician, prior Marine, feminist, geek. Current MA student at UCC. Sometimes travel blogger @tourabsurd. Academic tweets @questionsandtea. LinkedIn: http://t.co/7LkoSo9cm7

I'm a dual US/UK citizen who grew up entirely American (although I do like tea). Lived in Italy for 3 years, now living in Ireland. I wrote a travel / photo / humor blog for about 4 years before heading back to school to pursue postgraduate work. I've recently started playing Ingress, which is getting me out into the fresh air and keeping me active. Great, geekly fun!
