folks please look at what you’re reblogging there’s a v popular post going round ‘explaining’ the brexit vote and here’s an honest to god quote from the post
“During the campaign, Michael Gove, Boris Johnson (conservatives) and Nigel Farage (UKIP) stressed on immigration laws if the UK leaves the EU because immigration/refugees have been a big problem for the UK as its reducing jobs being given to UK locals/residents”
like no thats a fucking lie and racist xenophobic propaganda, immigrants and refugees are not a ‘big problem’ and its that kind of thinking that’s encouraging all this insidious nationalism
ETA: the OP has said that they absolutely were not supporting that position but were explaining the named parties’ positions! I misread and jumped to conclusions since I’m on edge right now
Tumblr's reaction to opposite-sex friendships:Assuming that a man and woman who are friends HAVE TO BE IN LOVE is REALLY shitty and heteronormative. It erases opportunities for diversity and representation in the media. PLATONIC RELATIONSHIPS ARE A THING. We need to teach society that a man and a woman can be regular friends without automatically assuming they're in love upon realizing their friendship.

actual mental illness positivity: educating yourself on mental illnesses, their treatment and coping methods, constantly working on your self-awareness, broadening and improving your self-help methods, accepting yourself in order to move forward and grow as a person, knowing your weaknesses, seeking to achieve a comfortable, stable condition in order to live happily with yourself and surrounding people
tumblr mental illness positivity!! ☆☆☆
: these toxic behaviors and shitty traits are ~~totoes alrighty~~ if you self-dxed with these mental illnesses! don’t forget to prove everyone you’re mentally ill by publicly showing off those symptoms you read about on wikipedia that you might not even actually have. this post i made is about anime but i myself have 20+ disorders so if you don’t have those don’t reblog uwu
I feel like the whole over-celebration of an ~exceptional~ disabled person is really tied into like the refusal to make the world accessible?
Like a disabled person puts years of effort and resources into achieving something that people say that should not be able to do, that the world has been built in order to prevent them doing
And instead of having a conversation about the masses of extra effort disabled people have to put in to even survive let alone do these things, about how someone should not have to be dedicating all their time and effort into carving out a space for themselves while everyone else looks the other way, about how things need to be accessible for every single disabled person, not just those who can perform well enough for abled people
we get articles about this magical inspirational disabled person!!! wow look at that!!! doesn’t it warm your heart!!! the only disability in life is a bad attitude!!
wlw can’t have the male gaze. Yall are women, women can never have MALE gaze. wlw finding other women attractive and beautiful and sexy is normal and not inherently creepy bc women don’t systematically prey on women the way men do
