extremely racist

Some reminders: 

  • Making fun of butch lesbians is lesbophobic. 
  • Making fun of lesbians for “embodying” stereotypes that were unilaterally and unfairly imposed upon them by cishet people is lesbophobic. 
  • Butch lesbians aren’t a stereotype. They aren’t overrepresented - in fact, they’re underrepresented. They are also constantly villainized. 
  • Butch lesbians who are fat or hairy or trans or all three deserve all the love in this world and deserve to have loving, meaningful relationships, and they do not deserve your ire, your jeering, or your mockery. 
  • Butch lesbians don’t have material privilege over women who aren’t butch lesbians, and claiming that they do is lesbophobic and erroneous. 
  • Butch lesbians aren’t your oppressors or your enemies. 
  • Butch lesbians do not have one “look” to them and they aren’t a monolith. Butch lesbians of color deserve to be supported and cherished. Fetishizing butch lesbians of color is extremely racist. 
  • Saying that “I’m a feminist but I’m not a lesbian” is lesbophobic. It’s fine to clarify what your sexuality is, but acting like being called a lesbian is a heinous crime or insult is lesbophobic. There are feminists who are butch lesbians, and you aren’t superior to them if you shave or conform to gender or are straight. In fact, can you really call yourself a feminist if you distance yourself from marginalized women in such a way? 
  • Butch lesbians have unique experiences and don’t all have the same connections to gender (and its performance/identification). 
  • Being LGBT doesn’t excuse you from lesbophobia! 
  • Support butch lesbians and their endeavors! 
The salty monk

Context: Our party is infiltrating a fancy party to get ahold of an artifact we’ve been hired to find. Our party consists of Ash'on the broody drow rogue, Thia the cinnamon roll elf bard, and Tas the salty human monk (me). During this fancy party, a woman is ‘murdered’, and everyone is trapped within the building. Attending the party, are also two extremely racist people who really, really hate drow. Tas ended up getting sick of the two partygoers shit. This happened more than once. 

Basically directly after the murder happens when Ash'on happened to step close to where the murder occurred along with everyone else…

Racist man: “YOU, drow filth! You must have killed her! These filthy drow are using their magic to trap us and are going to pick us off one by one!!”

Ash'on: “Seriously? How do we know YOU didn’t kill her-”

Racist man: “How dare you accuse me!? You filthy-”

Tas(me): “My apologies sir, but I believe perhaps this isn’t the time to be throwing about baseless accusations. I advise you stay calm-”

Racist man: “STAY CALM?!? How am I supposed to stay calm with these disgusting killers about??”

Tas(me): “It’s actually quite simple, first you take a deep breath, hold it, and then you shut your bitch mouth”

Needless to say, he was offended. He attempted to call the guards on me before the host interfered. This moment also solidly cemented Tas’s reputation as the salty monk.

i get that we all love malec and its the reason most of us even watch this show but i see so many of u talking about the homophobic aspects of the last ep but there was also so much racism some of it subtle and some of it not like

-the izzy storyline which was so blatantly racist it actually makes me sick

-the fact that maia and simons date was mostly about clary (a white girl) and her feelings more than maias

- the way cleophas’ storyline is going and her siding w/ valentine

-the way luke is treated in general but esp how valentine had the upper hand during their fight

-and the way magnus’ feelings are ignored and he barely gets any screentime to explore his character w/out alec 

so what im saying is if you guys wanna watch the show and criticize it when its homophobic you should also talk about how extremely racist its getting w every new episode

The Supergirl fandom (and by that I mean the Kara/Mon-el fandom) needs to stop saying Kara and Manuel are not white, that they are white-passing because they are aliens. THEY ARE WHITE. They are not white-passing and for white fans like me to be discussing that they are is truly offensive.

I get it, fandom, you are feeling “pressed” because people are RIGHTFULLY accusing your shitty ship of only existing through racist network decisions to erase Kara’s romance with James and to kick James out of the main storyline. You also realize that your ship taps into a few misogynistic tropes in that it’s the woman doing all the emotional labor to make the man a better person - as opposed to Karolsen, where they both supported each other and said how much they admired each other since the beginning. It’s hard to defend your shitty ship from these legit concerns. But co-opting social justice language to make your (extremely racist) point and pretend your white ship is “actually, really, interracial, if you think about it” is only making things worse. You wonder why everybody hates you? This is why everybody hates you.

PS. For the love of god stop saying Kara and Manuel are not white.

EDIT: I’d appreciate if S/upercorp fandom stopped reblogging this. I do not support the actions and often problematic opinions i’ve seen in a lot of people in this fandom and I’m not comfortable having this post connected to that side of fandom. My criticism didn’t come from a shipping stance (if anything I’m Karolsen) but a troubling comment I saw in fandom, I don’t want to see my words used as a weapon for a fandom I don’t support and that honestly I want to have nothing to do with.

Enter what I call “the alt-fem” or “alt-feminism”, a repurposing and expansion of white feminism to explicitly serve white supremacy. As part of this expansion, women like Megyn Kelly or Ivanka Trump are lauded as feminists advancing the cause of women’s equality, even though they both support extreme right and racist ideologies.

The new Alt-Feminism, when white supremacy met women’s empowerment – This Political Woman – Medium

I wrote about racist and nationalist ideologues co-opting feminism to support the advancement of white supremacy.

I think the whole issue with this turkish referendum is not even Erdogan. It’s the people who voted for him. There will always be politicians who aim for dictatorships. The statistics show that the majority of people in Germany, Belgium and France voted for the referendum. And why? Anyone who follows the news knows that Erdogan frequently promises Turkey a bright economic future and therefore Turkish people from other European countries voted for him in hopes that in the near future they can move/go back to Turkey and live a better life. Why would they want that? Simple. The Turkish nationality is absolutely despised in European countries (especially Germany), mainly because it’s the biggest ethnic minority, so they are often seen as ‘parasites’. People are extremely racist towards them and the Turks don’t feel welcome there. And then there’s Erdogan who promises all these nice, benefiting things for them, so they vote for him.
Dictatorship sucks. This is a nightmare. But people need to remember that the discrimination towards Turks is the main reason why things crumble down in the first place.

so, something pretty horrible happened to me today. 

i really contemplated on if i really should talk about this on tumblr, but from this experience, i want as many people to know what to do if this happens. 

so, nothing too bad happened, i wasn’t touched or harmed, but i could have been

basically, me and a friend (who i will keep anonymous because this is her private story as well) were coming back from a shopping mall via tram and whilst we were on said tram, (keep in mind that we are both asian and that i am currently only 14 and she was a few years older than me) an old, white man (probably 8-9 times older than me) had started talking (often directed towards us) about how he loved chinese people, specifically, young chinese girls, and that “we had very nice legs” and a lot of other extremely pedophilic comments that made us both very uncomfortable. he had even presumed that we did not speak english and started (prompted by the middle aged, white man sitting next to him) to say things to us like “ni hao” (hello in chinese), waving wildly at as and trying to converse with us as well as saying many, many extremely racist remarks. 

so, eventually, we decided to hop off the tram and walked to the nearest food store (hiding) where we were intending on meeting my friend’s mum where she was supposed to pick us up. but instead, we see the same man walk into this store and in the moment, we were so very frightened and didnt know what to do, because simply, we thought it was over, but it wasn’t. We went to a different store where again, waited for my friend’s mum

after her mum arrived, we walked out of the store where again, we see this man walking down the street (i don’t know what for) and like the hero she was, my friend’s mum went to tell him off (with another friend of hers). They ended up filing a report at the police station, but i was driving home back then.

so, if this happens to you, please

- go/stay in a crowded place

- tell someone or get someone to help you, even if you’re not sure if this person is a threat, do not risk it. please 

- if you’re alone, call someone

- don’t be afraid to defend yourself, whether physically or verbally (something we failed to do)

- go inside a shop, the people working there will help you, unless they’re completely heartless

- try not to show fear (hard, i know, but try) because this person might sense your fear and continue to ‘harrass’ you

- ignore them, don’t reply, don’t answer their questions, don’t give them a reason to keep talking to you.

so, everyone, please, please be careful. the most scary part is that i was almost going to take the tram alone and i, without any experience, would not have known what to do. so thank god i was with a friend. 

i know that i might be being a bit dramatic, but to me, this was my first experience like this (and it left me in tears). so, sorry!!

a little warning;

to stay away from kitsunecutie / flowerpriestess. sophia is a pedophile who is trying to convince others she’s some cute little japanese girl when really she’s white, and 22 yrs old. things that she’s done that should be watched out for:

  • pedophilia
  • racism
  • racefaking
  • manipulation
  • sexual abuse

i still have some proof of her being as disgusting as she is. she’s described to minors who range from 13-16 how she’s wanted to rape them. she’s also extremely transphobic and racist and i still have proof from september about most of these. she’s calling me and other people she tried to befriend her abusers. we are not. 

there was a callout blog specifically made for her around the time this was all blowing up, that’s at 2yroldalter if you need more information.

anonymous asked:

Woobification In Fandom Culture

I spend a lot of my time on Tumblr. Possibly too much time, however I don’t go outside. On Tumblr it isn’t uncommon to be immersed in something called a fandom. I have so far been in 3 Tumblr fandoms. My first one was Homestuck, however I joined really late. The comic ended about 2 years after I officially joined the fandom. It was a strange experience to be my first online fandom. Many people shipped sort of incestuous ships. However, a lot of the ships weren’t directly incestuous so it was more forgivable. You may be wondering how Homestuck and it’s weird fandom has anything to do with woobification.

The Homestuck fandom was mainly teenagers or young adults. The characters were all teenagers, it was a coming of age story. A lot of the characters were very violent. You could go anywhere in the fandom sphere and see someone say “I love Gamzee, he’s so precious. He doesn’t deserve to be treated badly.” However this wasn’t exactly the case. In the beginning, yes Gamzee did deserve to be treated better. However he had a mental breakdown and went on a murderous rampage. People in the fandom sort of ignored that until he started killing their favorite characters. Some still ignored it, shipping him with multiple of his victims.

I was able to escape the Homestuck fandom by entering another one. This one was even more hellish. This fandom used to rule Tumblr, some argue that it still does. This show has gone on too long and has a gif for everything, even if you don’t ask for it. This fandom is notorious for queerbaiting and shipping wars. I’m talking about the Supernatural fandom. Another one I entered late. I got into it between seasons 10 and 11. People are still arguing whether it’s okay to ship Sam and Dean, or if it’s better to ship Destiel.

The Supernatural fandom has woobified every character at least once. Prior to season 11 it was very common for fans to demand the writers bring back the antagonist Lucifer. They say he was misunderstood, that he wasn’t bad, that they love him, even though he literally wanted to kill every human on existence because his dad was mean to him.

The Supernatural fandom acts like Castiel, an angel, a literal warrior of God, is a precious child who doesn’t understand social interaction. In the canon of the show, at one point he could kill someone with the snap of his fingers. The fandom acts like Sam and Dean would not be able to harm them, when Dean would happily slit their throat if they stepped too out of line.

The third fandom I entered was the It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia fandom. You may be wondering “why is that a fandom?” well the answer to that is: I don’t know. It’s a good show. People like to bond over shows they like. This fandom is the calmest one I have ever been involved in. I entered the fandom during season 12, which is actually about when an actual Tumblr fandom rose. Prior to this, most people would have reaction gifs or images from the show. Even though I hadn’t seen the show yet, I saw captioned screenshots from the show on my dashboard from time to time. It was a well known show, it had been on for over a decade. I had seen promos for the show while having FX on as background noise, I remember the black and white promos from season 9 saying they were switching to FXX.

This show, at it’s core, is about terrible people doing terrible things. It’s a satire of ignorant white Americans. Some people call the characters sociopaths. All of them are damaged, there I no arguing. They all have trauma. Mac is gay and came out at 40 years old, due to his Catholic upbringing. Charlie is illiterate and stalks a woman, who he doesn’t even know her name. Dennis was raped at 14 and uses sex as a form of manipulation and a way to assert himself in society. Dee was abused by her parents and her peers, and she lashes out on other women to make herself feel better. Frank was also abused as a child, he grew to be greedy and neglectful. All of these characters are alcoholics and substance abusers.

These characters are also extremely racist and bigoted. They’re just plain awful people. The first episode of the series is titled “The Gang Gets Racist”. In the fourth episode of the first season, titled “Charlie Has Cancer”, in which Charlie pretends to have cancer so he can gain sympathy from the woman he stalks, Mac and Dennis try to set Charlie up with a woman, they fail miserably and Mac begins a relationship with a trans woman named Carmen. Mac and the rest of the gang refers to her as “the tranny”, which is a transphobic slur.

At the end of the day, none of these characters ever get what they want. Fans woobify these characters by treating Charlie like a five year old child who couldn’t hurt a fly, when in canon he regular kills rats by bashing them with baseball bats, one of which has a chain and nails sticking out of it. In the episode A Very Sunny Christmas, Charlie bites a mall Santa’s neck, causing terror and tremendous blood loss, possibly death. There is no arguing whether Dennis is a serial rapist or not. He is, it is literally canon, however many people don’t necessarily talk about it. No one talks about Dee also being a serial rapist. Both Reynolds twins manipulate people for sex, usually nonconsensual.

Mac and Dee are guilty of blackface and other racist costume types. People point out that it was a bad choice to include these things, as casual viewers, and people who aren’t aware of the satire, would normalize it. Plus it was just in bad taste.

Some people lower Mac to this husk of The Gay Man, and ignore his other extremely interesting character flaws. People lower Dennis to The Emotional One, when he is a very sinister person. People make Dee to be The Tragic Female, when she brings it on herself sometimes, she is an awful person. People think of Charlie as The Dumb One when he sometimes can be the most intelligent one, and the most manipulative. People don’t even talk about Frank. If you take one member of the gang away from the others and make 100% sure that they can not go near the others, they won’t magically become better people. They would wreak havoc alone.

Woobification takes dimension away from characters. It is important to take a step away from the fandom versions of characters and reevaluate characters. You can enjoy a character who is an awful person. You don’t have to apologize for liking them. Your favorite character can be the “villain”. Every character has their own motivations and reasons for acting the way they do. Usually it is due to their upbringing. You can like The Bad Guy as long as you don’t ignore all of the interesting facets of their personalities. Every character deserves to have multiple dimensions.

Why hasn’t my submission posted?

We get this question a lot so I thought I’d compile a list:

1.) You sent it through fan mail. We do not post anything sent that way since it does not include an option to queue or post it, just reply. We stopped copy pasting submissions a long time ago.

2.) You included a store name. Some of these slip through, but for the most part these get deleted for the safety of your job and this blog. There are actually people whose job it is is to hunt down stories like these and punish those who tell them.

3.) You requested to be anonymous without actually submitting on anon. Again, we do not copy paste submissions.

4.) You said something extremely offensive. Such as racist, ableist, homophobic, xenophobic, etc. Sometimes you might find we will call you out on it, but for the most part these posts are deleted.

5.) You sent hate mail. We will sometimes destroy you in response, but we delete 99% of these.

6.) The subject matter has been talked about to death. After a while we stop beating the dead horse with a stick.

7.) You posted a customer complaint. Yes, we will post good experiences praising an employee, but if you’re here to complain about an employee from a customer point of view then you’re in the wrong place.

8.) Rarely tumblr will eat the post. If your submission hasn’t posted in a month and it does not fit the rules above then resend it.

9.) Also extremely rare we might have accidentally deleted it. Again, if it hasn’t posted in a month and doesn’t fit the first 6 rules resend it. I think this has only happened twice to me personally though.

10.) It’s already queued or still in our inbox waiting to be queued or posted. We get a lot of submissions and asks, so you’ll need to be patient.

11.) Also, if you send a long submission through several asks instead of the submission link then we’ll delete them all. It is difficult to find all the parts.

With as many submissions as we get each day we do need to follow guidelines that ease the burden on our inbox and aren’t assholeish in nature. I hope everyone understands that these are in place to allow the blog to function smoothly and not stir the pot. -Abby

If someone says “18C is bad for free speech"...

…tell them this:

1. Do you know about s18D? *pause for an answer* s18D says your speech ain’t illegal under s18C if it was done “reasonably and in good faith”. That means only the more extreme/dishonest racist speech is outlawed. You can still get away with saying a hell of a lot.

2. We have a million laws that restrict free speech. Whether they’re good or bad is up to you but ‘pure free speech’ don’t exist in any country. Defamation laws (don’t say anything slightly bad about a rich guy or he’ll sue ya), public decency laws (used against homeless people heaps in sometimes dicky ways), immigration laws (asylum seekers and refugees can’t be heard, have to watch what they say if they don’t want to get deported for the smallest anti-government speech) etc. Why are the Libs big “free speech” advocates when it comes to racists, but don’t give a crap about the “free speech” of immigrants, the homeless and those scared if they say one bad thing about Murdoch or Rinehart?

3. Libs are using this s18C stuff as a distraction. They are failing at real politics - jobs, climate, homes, energy - so want to talk about symbolic politics. Cause they always get a boost in numbers when they do the ole 'political correctness has gone too far’ schtick.

eyepatchhaise  asked:

the presidental duel thing is on snapchat story. lepen is so full of herself

she’s the goddamn worst and I’m still so upset.

CW: Islamophobia, Homophobia, Antisemitism 

Among other things:

-All her sentences started with her trying to say Macron sucked, instead of defending her programs, it was all about “your program is bad because I say so”

-She wants to get out of Europe. Doing a Frexit like she says.

-She argues that the UK is doing better now that they are out of the UE

-She said that we should come back to Francs (our previous currency) because as the UK proved, they’re doing better now that they’re not using the Euro anymore (they… never used the Euro, Marine. Marine wake up.)

-She said that while it’s important we come back to Francs for “national pride”, “French people aren’t affected by it being Euro or Francs”. While guess what, yes we are, it’s our economy we’re talking about. 

-She basically dared to let us “try her” as a president

-She lied the whole time. The. whole time.

-She mentioned a Muslim guy who //allegedly// supported Macron and said Macron was trash over it because therefore he encouraged antisemitism, homophobia and misogyny. Which is big from a well known antisemitic person, who planned to go back on the gay marriage  and make law against LGBT+ people, and who is anti-abortion. And also which makes no sense whatsoever.

-She’s extremely racist and xenophobic and her anti-immigration politics are terrible, she wants to throw out anyone out of the country

-She kept bringing terrorist attacks and Muslims up in hateful ways, all the time, even on topic where it shouldn’t be mentioned. 

-When talking about the problems about education, the only thing she really had to say was that “we can’t allow people to wear veils in university and allowing so is making you terrible”

-Macron went in Algeria a few days prior to apologize about the Algeria War and called it a Crime Against Humanity, which it was and France was wrong okay. Lepen got angry at him and brought it up saying that putting the blame on France was a blasphemy and that you cannot say France is criminal if you want to represent it. (I will also add that it is a well known fact that her father, the founder of her party, tortured people during the Algeria War. He’s a war criminal. She can shut the fuck up.)

-To which Macron brought up what Lepen said a few days before: She argued that the Vel d’Hiv’s rafle (how, during WWII, under the Vichy Regime, Pétain ordered to get all the Jewish people living in the South, Men, Women and Children alike, and send them all in the Concentration camps, also taking into account the nazis only asked for the Men which resulted in countless of Women and Children being killed to be disposed of) - was not France’s fault and it wasn’t our responsability.

-To which Lepen replied that “France was in London during that time so it’s not our fault” (and guess what it fucking was. It’s not because some people of the Resistance was in London that it excuses what we did in FRANCE)

-She said that France used to be great but now we are “submissive” to Germany and the USA and that we have to go back to the glory days were we were admirated because we were France (so what time? When were we better? Because the time we were “world leaders” we weren’t that great. Marine. Marine shut the fuck up.)

-She kept insulting and interrupting Macron and then argued he was the one who kept insulting and interrupting her. 

-Taking into account that she stole 3 millions of Euro to the UE recently and refused to go to the Court when she was convocated about it, she called the Justice System in France to be not correct. To which Macron had to reply to her that if she went to her convocations maybe we would take her seriously.

-(he also said that “Sorry Miss Lepen, but France deserves so much better than you” and I’m thanksful for that. He’s not that great himself but look. Nothing is as bad as //Her//)

-She did this to interrupt Macron when he was talking about how there were problems in her party was and she was like “brrr raise the social network, everything’s bad”

-She mentioned that using our money to “heal immigrants” was to be irrespectful to any national pride and that we were failing French people, somehow. 

(and as a “fun” fact, there had been a terrorist attack a few days ago in Paris, a policeman was killed, but otherwise it was all. When the attack happened, the FN (her party) used it as a way to again, fuel their own agenda of hatred against all of this - until the policeman was buried and his husband made an ellogy for him, ending it by saying he loved his husband. To which JM Lepen, Marine’s Father (you know, the war criminal) said that it was truly shameful from France to honor “this kind of people”. that’s the kind of things she thinks as well. Let’s not forget that.)

And that’s just the things I noted down out of pure anger at some point because what the hell.

The Journalists themselves couldn’t take it anymore and when it was done, they mentioned it was the worst debate they’ve ever seen since the begining of the Vth Republic. Because instead of talking about solutions, it was all about attacks and nothing about real programs. They called Lepen childish and unprofessional. 

 And yet still, apparently still 40% of the people who watched the debate were convinced by her. 

I want to burn my eyes over how bad it was. It was seriously so cringeworthy. She’s arrogant, full of herself, hateful, encouraging to hate, dangerous, with no notion of economy (none of her plans makes sense on an economical standpoint) and it’s all about justifying her own hateful agenda. 

So ye that’s basically a summary of what I’ve been screaming about in French all night. It’s not that great. 

God I’m looking forward those elections to be over and I really hope we don’t screw up and elect //her//
