The reason a lot of people are apparently pissed off about Mockingbird #8: Bobbi wears a shirt that proclaims that she’s a feminist.
The reason people should be pissed off about Mockingbird #8: The retcon that not only turns Bobbi into a cheat and a cold-blooded murderer, but also comes with a side of victim blaming as it’s implied that strong, in control women can’t be raped (which is actually at the opposite end of the feminism spectrum from the cover.)
I don't think Harley Quinn and the joker from the movie being shipped is that bad, only because in the movie he is more romantic than abusive. Although, Harley does it to herself. She wants the abusive joker. She wants the psychotic clown king that she is dating, and she would have him in any other way. In one comic the joker goes through intense therapy and becomes legally sane and normal and she does everything in her power to change him back. She does it to herself, she wants to be evil.
“Harley does it herself”
First off, listen up buttercup, because what you just said right there is victim blaming. Most abuse victims go back to their abusers because they sympathize with them.
I’m pretty sure I speak for a good portion of everyone who supports Harley when I say that she did not want to be manipulated. She did not want to be abused. She sure as hell did not ask for it. Dr. Harleen Quinzel is not evil. She sure as hell is no angel, but she is definitely not a heartless person.
Also, “psychotic clown king”? Joker is psychotic but he is no king. He is a criminal and a gangster who has no regard for anyone’s life, not even his own.
On the note of whether or not Harley and Joker being shipped together is “bad” or not. it should be pretty self-evident that they shouldn’t even be considered a ship. A ship is a couple that is full of love,admiration, and happiness. Their relationship was shit.
I agree slippery slope indeed @drivebyanon. Personally I have a thing about shooting yourself in the foot with bad situations that you know are terrible…i.e. Don’t. But I get what your saying. It’s slipping into victim blaming and yea I wouldn’t want to do that (because I hate it)
Personally I’m staying far away this time. I already made this mistake before. I don’t need the insanity this time around. I’ll be back when it’s calm just like before. Maybe.
saying “you shouldn’t cheat when you’re in an abusive relationship because you could get KILLED” is victim blaming.
it’s insinuating that the victim should know better and therefore, cheating on their abusive partner has earned them the punishment of being beaten, or even killed because they should have just not done it. so keep that up, good job tumblr!
So I am absolutely fuming. A few weeks ago, I was called to the dean’s office to discuss the antisemitic bullying I’ve been enduring since freshman year (I’m a senior now). Here’s a brief run down of some of what I’ve had to suffer through these last three years (this doesn’t even scratch the surface):
• A swastika carved into my desk, along with the words “ich haße juden” ie “I hate Jews” in German
• Intentionally spit on, usually accompanied by the word k*ke, the most vile word a Jewish person can be called
• Pushed into lockers/to the ground
• Called a “dirty Jew” more times than I can count, usually once a day
I identified the main perpetrator by name. There is proof he is a Nazi as he has a fucking swastika tattoo on his arm for everyone to see. Close after I went to the dean, the boy I accused was called to the dean. He denied everything, and received NO punishment.
I have several witnesses to these events, he is very vocal about being a Nazi, and he is the head of a neo-Nazi gang that is very active on campus. And the administration did NOTHING. I want everyone to know that antisemitism is alive and thriving, and affects Jews everywhere every day, and the world does not care. The world remains silent.
Do not, I repeat, DO NOT ever tell someone who survived through abuse that they might have done something to deserve it, whatever the abuse might be. Defending the abuser is not going to get you anywhere. It makes me sick that these people are victim blaming. If you do this, you should be ashamed of yourself. No More victim blaming.
i wanna raise awareness to this issue that someone posted anonymously to Twitter!! please if u can send this person encouraging words. it doesn’t matter if one is under the influence, alone, or not dressed ‘appropriately’ NO means NO.
- safety tips for preventing a crime (this includes lists of areas and activities to avoid/take a friend if you’re going there)
- teaching self defense or encouraging the teaching of self defense
- requiring proof of a crime in order to prosecute
- doubting a crime was committed in the absence of evidence
- being angry at being lied to
There is a massive difference between being a victim and playing the victim. Telling you to watch out for yourself, or ignoring the claims of a proven liar, is not victim blaming. You cannot victim blame someone who is not a victim.
