the media owes it to the people and viewers it has to show the entirety of an issue it addresses, whether that be anything ranging from sexuality to mental/physical health and illness, to disability or addictions or oppression.

if you start with something, it is on you, as an onus, to fully represent that issue in it’s entire and complete form, and not just leave it halfway in mid air for the casual viewer to decide or imagine its ending, because the effects of that can be so, so damaging and fatal, since the media is such a powerful force of influence, even in the most subtle way, in our lives, that we sometimes don’t realise ourselves how much we can relate to a certain issue, especially when we hear about it or see it. 

in time, we begin to connect ourselves so profoundly to it, and the media needs to realise this, that it teaches us things, and it is on the media to teach us the right thing about an issue that people can suffer from, as a means of helping out and reaching out to people.

The problem with the SJW community is that they’re more focused on people who aren’t apart of the problem rather than people who are.

If they actually cared about social justice and equality, they would actually do everything they could to dismantle people who are actually supporting white supremacy, transphobia, homophobia, classism, sexism and so forth.

Those are your oppressors.

Someone simply being white or cis doesn’t make them an oppressor. They have to have some type of prejudice attitude towards you and who you are in order to be an oppressor.

Look at this obviously reasonable person tripping over herself to be offended over some MEN talking on a panel at a convention for a medium that was built by MEN, that is predominantly enjoyed by MEN, to help pave a future for WOMEN! What a group of awful human beings. How dare they use their insight, years of experience and knowledge in this field, as well as their influence to help empower the other sex. Patriarchy and misogyny in the flesh!

You know, if you don’t like seeing an all male panel talking about women in comics, there’s a very simple solution to this: start your own god damn panel that people are going to give a shit about. People like this are the reason why people like me turn their backs to modern feminism.

UK Citizens will lose their human rights

The new government is a conservative majority, meaning there is little opposition to what they can impose. David Cameron and his party have made the decision to abolish the Human Rights Act (1998)

Abolishing the act means losing these rights:

  • Right to life
  • Freedom from torture and inhuman or degrading treatment
  • Right to liberty and security
  • Freedom from slavery and forced labour
  • Right to a fair trial
  • No punishment without law
  • Respect for your private and family life, home and correspondence
  • Freedom of thought, belief and religion
  • Freedom of expression
  • Freedom of assembly and association
  • Right to marry and start a family
  • Protection from discrimination in respect of these rights and freedoms
  • Right to peaceful enjoyment of your property
  • Right to education
  • Right to participate in free elections

Here is a link all about the act

This is only the first oppressive move the conservatives hope to make, and we can only hope this is the worst it will get.

Just to clarify a few things

-Although the conservatives have a seat majority (51%), they only actually have 36% of the votes.

-There are protests taking place in London particularly around the houses of parliament and downing street against the conservatives, and the media is not really covering it

-Although the Human Rights Act is being abolished, they are planning on creating a new legislation called the  British Bill of Rights. However the British Bill of Rights will not be exactly the same as the Human Rights Act, it is expected that a few of the laws will be lost or changed in the conversion. What is to be in the Bill of Rights is still to be decided

-Here is an article on the subject

-Here is an article about the protests

Sorry about any misunderstandings, happy to help!

White feminists like to pretend that they get it. They get it because they’ve been there. They’ve experienced sexism. They’ve experienced misogyny. They’ve been passed over for promotions, whistled at on the street, and had to listen to boring dudes at parties who require approximately ten years of your time in order to explain how fascinating they actually are. These white women have been down in the feminist trenches for years, and like your world-weary Grandpa, they’ve seen it all. They understand the oppression of all women, ok?

Except not. Intersecting forces of oppression mean that women who are queer, racialized, disabled or trans will experience misogyny in very different (and frequently more deadly) ways than white women do. Saying that just because you’re a woman you totally understand all different ways that women are marginalized is not only wildly inaccurate, it’s also just plain ignorant. Just because you don’t have male privilege doesn’t mean you aren’t the proud owner of a whole host of other types of privilege. And whether you like it or not, those various forms of privilege influence how people treat you.

White women don’t own womanhood, and they don’t get to explain it to women of color. End of story.

just a heads up

if you are cisgender and  arguing with a transgender person about what is or isnt transphobic then you have already lost

if you are white and arguing with a poc about what is or isnt racist then you have already lost

if you are straight and arguing with a queer person about what is or isnt homophobic then you have already lost

if you are part of a majority and arguing with an oppressed group about what is or isnt offensive to the oppressed group then you have already lost and your arguing is only helping to perpetuate oppressive ideals and commentary

Social justice is about destroying systematic marginalisation and privilege. Wishing to live in a more just, more equal world is simply not the same thing as wishing to live in a ‘nicer’ world. I am not suggesting niceness is bad or that we should not behave in a nice way towards others if we want to! I also do not equate niceness with cooperation or collaboration with others. Here’s all I am saying: the conflation of ethical or just conduct (goodness), and polite conduct (niceness) is a big problem.

Plenty of oppressive bullshit goes down under the guise of nice. Every day, nice, caring, friendly people try to take our bodily autonomy away from us (women, queers, trans people, non-binary folks, fat people, people of color … you name it; they just don’t think we know what’s good for us!). These people would hold a door for us if they saw us coming. Our enemies are not only the people holding 'Fags Die God Laughs’ signs, they are the nice people who just feel like marriage should be between a man and a woman, no offense, it’s just how they feel! We once got a very nice comment on this site that we decided we could not publish because its content was “But how can I respect women when they dress like – sorry to say it, pardon my language – sluts?”. This is vile, disgusting misogyny and no amount of sugar-coating and politeness can make it okay. Similarly, most of the people who run ex-gay therapy clinics are actually very nice and polite! They just want to save you! Nicely! Clearly, niceness means FUCK ALL.

In homeroom

Some girl- “I’m not doing that day of silence thing. Why should they get a whole day dedicated to them just because they’re gay?”

Other girl- “I know, right? Can we get a day of silence for being straight?”

Listen here.

-Straight people do not get killed because of their sexuality. -Straight people are not arrested because of their sexuality. -Straight people are not denied marriage to their true love. -Straight people are not bullied to the point of suicide because of their sexuality. -Straight people are not called names every day by bigots. -Straight people are not kicked out of schools for their sexuality. -Straight people are not disowned by their own families for their sexuality. -Straight people are not thrown out of public places and even churches for their sexuality.

-Straight people do not NEED a damn day of silence.

This is about the LGBT community. Let’s keep it that way.
