Dude, I love your videos….I really do..They make me happy….But you are missing the point here.
So here is a challenge for you. I want you to ask for short clips from your minority viewers on a moment they faced (legitimate) discrimination and listen to WHY they have no respect for someone who demeans their existence. Telling them that they should? Is a tactic used in abusive relationships.
Being a good friend doesn’t mean excusing bullshit….that is being an enabler. Being a good friend is CALLING your friends on their crap. The battle against discrimination isnt just the big things, it is small things too (e.g. when people say/do unacceptable things).
This “Treat everyone with respect” thing? Doesn’t exist and it isnt logical. When you demean a person’s entire being? You don’t get respect.
Respect is a two way street you have to give it to get it and vice versa.
For example: I am black. If someone makes antiblack/racists remarks with regards to who I am? I do NOT have to respect them….because they disrepected my people, my existence as a whole.
You can’t honestly tell me you would be cordial and respectful to someone who called you every slur in reference to being asian or of mixed heritage. That is hella unreal.
That’s like telling a kid to be nice to a bully who constantly harasses them. The kid doesn’t get anything other than a furthered ass kicking. That makes no sense. You either teach the kid to defend themselves and call the bully on their garbage or You step in and stop the bully.
This is literally as simple as I can make it.
For the love of god, don’t make me put you on the “People I enjoyed but, they wouldn’t give a flying fuck about combatting ignorance” list.
Don’t do this. I swear if I have to stop watching your videos because you lack competence…I may seriously cry.
I was tagged by @thedoorintosummer (thank you!!) to post songs I’ve been listening to lately. I originally thought it said albums, not songs, so I’ll just go along with what I’ve started here. LOL I haven’t done one of these tag things in so long apparently I’ve forgotten how to do them.
1. “Cost of Love” by Linda Ronstadt
2. “Anything That’s Rock n’ Roll” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
what’s it about? it’s a show about a rape victim going all vigilante and fighting rapists. there is absolutely no victim blaming and the show never tries to make you sympathise with the rapists or humanize them. a fair warning: there is a lot of heavy content, so it might not be for you if you’re triggered by sexual assault or violence. there is a lot of comic relief though, like… the picture below? it’s jules and ophelia breaking into a musical with a dead body in their trunk (yeah you read that right)
so…. if you want to watch two girls beat up rapists in between developing friendships/relationships and dealing with their problems it’s definitely a show for you listen look at them they’re all so good

“Love between siblings grow when you are rough with each other. If you see her from afar, what should you do? Run up to her, just run. Lock her, lock her in first. Act as if you will pet her, and keep locking her in. Hold her down till she surrenders.” - Advice from SooHo, an Experience Brother.
