Half of the women I spoke to said , would he admit that’s he’s bit of a sexist, misogynistic — he sees women only in sexual terms?  (x)

But what those women don’t seem to be stopping to think about is, he’s willing to admit that he might not realise something he says or does is sexist because the only viewpoint he’s lived is that of a “relatively privileged” white male. He’s not sitting there going “no, no, I’m not sexist, I just believe in traditional values and the family unit” like so many sexist misogynists are (I’m looking at you, Tony Abbot). You have to respect that about him. Equally, you have to respect that he’s willing to admit, apologise and contemplate, whether it be about potential sexism, mistakes in his past, whatever. Those three things are more than a whole lot of white males are willing to do, relatively privileged or otherwise.

Reason number 45-60754280865’11B I won’t go on a mission trip.

I am soooo done

Mission trips make me sick

ugh


This baby girl is being treated like a tourist attraction or a wild animal and I am not here for this. This picture says so much about the owner of that white hand.

This photo makes me feel so uncomfortable

this photo makes me fucking angry.and a mission trip? .. yeah, aka colonialism.

Get OUT of our countries with this fucking bullshit, honestly. Missionaries are already fucking so much up in African countries. As a gay Nigerian I LIVE the repercussions of this daily. I’ve been exorcised, had bibles thrown at me, been sent to priests for a “cure”, been given spiritual baths which burn my skin to “wash the devil out of me” you name it. Done by my own family and people at the behest of “our Lord and Savior”. It’s traumatic, and especially hurtful when we understand that general acceptance of same sex love and eroticism and more nuanced, varied understandings of gender were the norm PRIOR to colonization and missionary activity.

And then we have pictures like this to remind us of the OTHER bullshit these missionary fuckers do. They roll up in our countries as “white saviors” and are constantly doing racist bullshit like this. Objectifying us, casting us as “primitive” and in need of being saved from ourselves and our “heathen” ways. Let’s not even start on the rampant sexual abuses priests committed against Africans across the continent. The ways in which they destroyed and suppressed our cultures. Made us hate ourselves to the point that today we call our own grandfathers and grandmothers with traditional beliefs “despicable heathens” and Satanists. Where they have so warped our cultures, identities and understanding of self, to fit THEIR white colonial mold.

We forget that missionaries came as colonizers first and foremost, and in many cases caused far more egregious and long lasting damage than the colonial administrators themselves. And they are still doing it today. Look at the rise of Christian fundamentalism in Africa in the last 30 years and you will see a direct correlation with a rise in hate and animus against same sex loving and trans people in many African countries. Watch the movie “God Loves Uganda” if you don’t believe me: the legacy and impact of missionaries on Africa is DAMNING and is getting WORSE, especially for those of us who identify as LGBTQ.

It makes me sick. This picture makes me sick. Missionaries make me sick. What they have done to our cultures and communities and traditions makes me sick. Their racism cloaked with a smile and their “good Book” makes me sick. The fact that they think that they’re “doing good” while they’re just reproducing white supremacist patriarchal colonial structures of control, domination and subjugation makes me sick. They don’t see us as full people, but as spectacles for their white gaze, as this picture makes so bitingly clear, and they don’t give a damn as long as they make their God “happy”

You have caused so much pain in my life and that of many of my friends. It hurts.

GET THE FUCK OUT OF AFRICA (or wherever this pic was taken) AND LEAVE OUR CHILDREN ALONE!!!!

And a big fuck you to all of the people doing mission “service trips” to ~*aFRicA*~ too. 
 
I’m utterly and completely done.

As a daughter of black missionaries who have taken predominantly white people with them on short term missions to black and brown countries, I can attest that these people are often poorly trained with little to offer except demonstrations of their supposed superiority (as Christians, as white people and as westerners).  It gives them a huge white savior high and then they come back taking abut how the trip changed their lives (nothing much about the people they were going to “help” because you can’t do anything in a week).Mind you, these are the same Fox News watching republicans who don’t want a penny of “their money” going to healthcare or WIC or homelessness or schools. But these foreign brown and black people are somehow better, more noble and more worthy of their attention than the starving and impoverished people whose gaze they avoid and plight they ignore in their own countries.  Not so scary and argumentative and more appreciative. [huge eye roll]
