girlanarchy:

this website’s attitude toward gender non-conforming children and it’s universal insistence that boys who wear skirts aren’t really boys and girls who like short hair and non-feminine colors aren’t really girls is SO primitive and harmful.

how is ~othering~ children who don’t meet your performance standards for their sex NOT reinforcing oppressive patriarchal gender roles and expectations?

aside from the interpretation of the results, this is a great way to help you understand the power in the numbers when it comes to whiteness, specifically, and in polling in general.
look at the “has gone too far” bars on the far left. 
For Blacks, that bar is set at 65%. For whites, it was 33% saying the police went too far. If the populations were about equal in size, you would see a about (65+33)/2 = 49 for the overall bar (another way to view this is 49 is equidistant from 33 and 65 …16 away from 33 and 16 away from 65). That’s what would happen if the populations were near equal in size. But they aren’t. So, what happens instead is the overall number is 25 points lower than it is for Blacks, in favor of the opinion of the whites…. such that it’s only 7 points higher than the white percentage.  Even though Blacks reported in favor of this nearly twice (200%) as much as whites, Blacks were only able to raise the overall percentage from that reported by whites by about 21% (7/33 = 0.21).
remember this the next time they try to blame Black people for something that happens at the polls.

Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed, poor black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a high school athlete shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
