From teaching a multiethnic array of Cabbage Patch Kids (and a few Dollar Store baby dolls) about the Civil Rights Movement to writing a letter to my ineffectual second grade teacher explaining to her that I thought she was racist, it has always been about race for me. Once I grew a little older and had to saturate my beaten-up Keds with white shoe polish at the start of the school year because I couldn’t afford new ones, it became about class. Then, when I grew older than that, and saw a classmate being harassed (without intervention from the teacher) because his brother was gay, it became about sexuality. Skip over college, and I bring you to graduate school, where everything-race, class, sexuality, and of course gender, came together to occupy my every existence. Couple that existence with the mass amounts of popular culture I consume, and you have me, April Scissors. I take all of those commercials, political commentary, moments on TV, and scenes in movies that we all see and hear in our daily lives, but may not notice as problematic, and point out all of the lovely ways they protect, uphold, enhance, and perpetuate racist, classist, sexist, homophobic, heteronormative, white supremacist, and thoughtless stereotypes and ideologies. As a bonus, you will not only find engaging, thoughtful critiques of popular culture and how we as a society consume that culture, but also instances of “That’s so racist/sexist/classist/homophobic-ist/hegemonic-ist” that occur in our everyday lives. And as a double bonus (and to prove that I have somewhat of a personality and other interests outside of racism), I’ll break up the dreadful talks about how awful the world is with music, videos, and photos. Essentially, April Scissors’ Cease and DaSista is giving you a graduate level feminist Media Studies education for free. You’re welcome and enjoy.
