I hate the “take responsibility for the problematic people in your community” posts I see in the ace positivity tag.
It’s legit NOT ok. There are ace people avoiding The Discourse, there are some that aren’t but want to use the positivity tag for, like, positivity.
I mean, call problematic people the fuck out, but don’t put it in positivity tags? Like, that shit would not be tolerated with other communities. If I saw people spamming “bi positivity” with negative shit I would mind. I know lesbians who would SERIOUSLY mind if their positivity tag was subject to such nonsense.
Also, no one is part of a hivemimd. Like, don’t tell people they can’t speak on their own issues or have any positivity until they deal with every single piece of shit in their community.
That is a silencing tactic. I recognize it because that shit has been used on LGBT people for… Ever? “Like, XY and Z are a problem so deal with them before you talk.”
Fuck, I still see Milo Yianoppolous being used as an example to silence gay men from being allowed to talk.
Stop using the same tactics as homophobes. They are BAD tactics.
