racism & sexism

anonymous asked:

I'm not cis either. I'm genderfluid as well as pansexual. And like I have no problem using something different. My problem was your reaction, the whole rolling your eyes thing. That actually kinda hurt a bit, especially coming from a blog that I really look up to. It kinda almost made me feel invalid because of a word choice. Do I think that was your intention, of course not. But, now it makes me feel terrified talking to you that perhaps I'm just not right or good enough.

I never react to things on tumblr, I just don’t. But this is something that genuinely bothers me and makes me grit my teeth when I see it. It is my reaction. There will always be people of groups that aren’t offended by things and say “yeah use it, I don’t care!” And there will always be people who do. This, racial slurs/racism, sexism, and cultural appropriation are the things I have major problems with. Other than that, I’m fine. I have a problem with the above list bc they either hurt others or are disrespectful to others.

Other than that, it’s fine. This is one thing I’ve reacted to in at least 6+ months, if not the whole time I’ve had this blog. I swore and I was mad because it makes me mad. It feels disrespectful, like I said in that ask, to the queer folks who have come out of the closet and literally been killed. It’s not comparable to me.

I’m not the witch queen or anything, I’m not your mom, I can’t tell you what to say or what to think. I’m not the end all be all, you’re entitled to what you think, just as much as I am. I just personally don’t agree. Just because we have one differing opinion doesn’t mean I would think everything you say or do is wrong. I go out of my way to be kind, open, and understanding to everyone who comes into my inbox, regardless of opinions. I was asked about my opinion by that person and I gave it is all.

If you want to call yourself a closeted witch, do it, that’s not my choice. Just to me personally, coming out as a queer lady vs telling people I’m a witch don’t hold the same weight, fear, and backlash. One is a choice and one isn’t. My rights don’t get taken away from me bc I’m a witch.

Didn’t intend for it to be mean, I never do. Just my opinion is all.

It’s wonderful that the Hamilton cast/audience made their voices and protest heard loud and clear, but ~DO NOT let it distract or misdirect~ from the real issues and horrors that Trump and his administration are HOPING YOU’LL MISS or FORGET ABOUT.

Fascism is misdirection of real concerns.

When a member of an oppressed group tells you to stop doing something that triggers them or to not use a slur, they’re not violating your free speech, because they don’t actually have any power to stop you. You won’t be arrested, fined, or penalized in any way if you continue to do the thing that bothers them. They’re simply saying that if you respected them and people like them, you would stop. By continuing, you’re simply stating that you’re willingly choosing to not respect them.

things tumblr needs to stop thinking are good, cool or constructive

- looking for things to be offended by
- glorifying certain demographics
- vilifying other demographics
- throwing around words such as ableist, sexist, transphobic, etc like confetti to the point where they are becoming meaningless (much to the harm of victims of actual hatred)
- self victimization
- censorship
- policing people’s language
- throwing tantrums over fictional characters not representing demographics you like
- pretty much reducing people to small aspects of their identity
- doxxing and bullying people who disagree with you
- conflating gender with personality traits or clothing style
- pretending that obesity is not a bad thing
- prioritizing hurt feelings over everything else
- pretending that you strive for equality when really you strive for special treatment

Also SJWs:

They only “love”, “respect” and “protect” these groups as long as they’re compliant, as long as they’re in agreement with the tenants of social justice, if they ever deviate from the group, they become a target.

You people don’t care about women. You don’t care about black people. You don’t care about Muslims, trans or gay people. You care about your political allies and your ideology, that’s all.
