things tumblr needs to stop thinking are good, cool or constructive
- looking for things to be offended by
- glorifying certain demographics
- vilifying other demographics
- throwing around words such as ableist, sexist, transphobic, etc like confetti to the point where they are becoming meaningless (much to the harm of victims of actual hatred)
- self victimization
- policing people’s language
- throwing tantrums over fictional characters not representing demographics you like
- pretty much reducing people to small aspects of their identity
- doxxing and bullying people who disagree with you
- conflating gender with personality traits or clothing style
- pretending that obesity is not a bad thing
- prioritizing hurt feelings over everything else
- pretending that you strive for equality when really you strive for special treatment
SJWs: “We love and respect Muslims. Listen to moderate Muslims”
They only “love”, “respect” and “protect” these groups as long as they’re compliant, as long as they’re in agreement with the tenants of social justice, if they ever deviate from the group, they become a target.
You people don’t care about women. You don’t care about black people. You don’t care about Muslims, trans or gay people. You care about your political allies and your ideology, that’s all.
Why do privileged people want to play victim so bad.
How can you possibly look at this world’s history, and think that the statements
“I hate men” and “I hate women”
“I hate white people” and “I hate black people”
“I hate straight people” and “I hate gay people”
are equally bad?
When, for example, a woman says she hates men, she’s not saying she hates men simply for being men. She’s referring to the oppression women face from men. She’s basically saying she hates misogyny.
The reason we don’t say that we hate misogyny is, because that way men can dissociate themselves from the statement. Many will just think “whatever, I’m not sexist so it’s fine”. But when we say “men”, we want them to think about and question their behaviour and really ask themselves “am I sexist?”. This is important because many people are, without thinking about it.
If you’re actually not sexist, you should know that the statement isn’t about you.
“I hate men” = I hate sexists
“I hate women” = literally just “I hate women”.
