help this generation

Someone on Twitter pointed out that the worst part of the year of deaths is not simply that we’ve lost celebrities, but that we’ve lost a whole group of the celebrities who helped an entire generation realize that being different was somehow okay. That your sexuality and sexual identity/presentation didn’t have to be set in stone, or conform to the conservative standards. That you could have a mental illness and still be happy and successful and loved. The people we lost this year helped so many people come to terms with who they were, and losing them hurts precisely because they were so comforting in those ways.

This year has become a parody of itself. I cannot wait to toast its end on Saturday.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - Chapter Ten: The Marauder’s Map


“Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs,” sighed George, patting the heading of the map. “We owe them so much.”

“Noble men, working tirelessly to help a new generation of lawbreakers,” said Fred solemnly.

“Right,” said George briskly. “Don’t forget to wipe it after you’ve used it —”

“— or anyone can read it,” Fred said warningly.

“Just tap it again and say, ‘Mischief managed!’ And it’ll go blank.”

This Generation: *helps the legalization LGBTQIA+ marriage, actually gives a shit about modern racism instead of brushing it under the rug, accepts each other regardless of gender identity, sexuality, religion, etc., promotes body positivity more than ever before, advocates for the rights of women, and is considered to be way more liberal than previous generations*

Last Generation: ugh, this generation is so shallow! Kids these days don’t care about anyone but themselves and their phones! They play on their devices all day without making any difference in the world! So lazy and selfish!

So, here’s why “standing with Pewdiepie” is a bad thing
  • You’re helping him normalize anti-Semitic humor
  • When you normalize something like that, you’re excusing neo-nazis who believe jewish people aren’t human beings, and neo-nazis who want another mass genocide to occur
  • when you normalize that you also shout at the jewish community that you may not think they’re lesser people, but you support the people that do believe this
  • letting him go unpunished by this validates what he is doing and gives him the opportunity to do this again
  • ??? you’re literally helping him raise a generation of tiny neo-nazis??? How do you not see the harm in that???
  • he fucking paid the two men in his video to hold the sign so they would get the bad rep and not him
  • You’re not letting him take responsibility for this
  • You’re letting him play the victim card, when in fact he is anything but the victim in this situation
  • The victims are those in the jewish community who are put in danger every time they leave their homes because of this mindset Pewdiepie is normalizing
  • He knows what he’s doing is terrible, yet he’s still doing it because y'all let him get away with it
  • He deserves every dropped sponsor and every unsubscription he gets
  • because promoting these ideals is dangerous, it’s disgusting, and it’s not a joke
  • This isn’t dark humor, it’s saying a race is lesser than yours and deserves to die
  • sympathizing with Nazis, neo-nazi’s, and other nazi-sympathizers is fucking disgusting, and you deserve to get called out on it

Girl Meets World was canceled when it was needed most. The next four years are going to be bad times for America, especially women, LGBTQ, POC, and more. We needed a show like Girl Meets World to help our younger generation know that what’s happening is wrong. We needed a show like GMW because we need leaders.
