social justice blogger

Dear social justice bloggers:

Always remember that the people that harass you and make racist, misogynistic, ableist, transphobic, etc., comments on your posts are NOT the ones you’re trying to reach. Those are anti-SJ trolls and they have already made up their minds and will not listen to reason. 

It’s the people out there who are on the fence, who are still inquiring minds, the ones who most often don’t even leave a “note”, THEY are the people you’re trying to reach. In fact, any anti-SJ backlash you face is almost always a sign that you’ve hit a prejudiced nerve and are doing something right. 

So please do not lose hope. Keep on fighting for social justice no matter how many trolls surface from the nasty depths of the interwebz to try to stomp you out of existence. Bc the more they whine & moan, the more you can be sure that you are disrupting the white male supremacist (etc) status quo and promoting positive social change.

Personally, I plan to continue advocating for social justice for as long as I am able. I hope that you will all join me in solidarity!!!

tumblr drags people for being close-minded and i get it but at a certain point i’m like damn stop with the superiority complex and give people a chance to grow lord knows you didn’t come out of the womb a social justice blogger with a steve rogers obsession

there are three types of tumblr gays:

  1. the pokemon trade/ power bottom
  2. the twink with the pink blog who’s obsessed with a female celebrity that was popular somewhere between 2004 and 2008
  3. the hypersexual social justice blogger who also memes

So I’m like… really sick of social justice bloggers/activists in general caring more about semantics than ACTUALLY caring about social justice?? Like. If that hitler kin asshole just came out and was like “I’m a nazi” no sj bloggers would be defending them but because they said “I’m ~kin~ with hitler as a ~coping mechanism~” there have been people defending them??? Like damn. Same with goyische bloggers who make nazi punching edits and talk about how much they hate nazis but NEVER include Jews or rroma people in their activism I just. Ugh. This is a terrible website.

"omniphobia"

the way that oppression is framed in overwatch is so fucking shitty but all of you people just accept it as it is without questioning.

fans consider “omniphobia” to be a negative character trait of torb/zarya/junkrat/whoever and think that characters like genji or tracer or whoever else are more socially progressive because they dont hate omnics. which, if you follow overwatch’s portrayal of current omnic/human relations, makes sense. but like omnics still fucking like……committed genocide like twenty years ago. barely one generation ago they specifically targeted humans and killed them. and in present overwatch time, just twenty years later, it’s somehow bigoted to hate omnics? when people fucking died en masse directly bc of them??

this isnt how oppression works in real life and it is EXTREMELY irresponsible of blizzard to portray it as such. real life racism didnt happen because of something that black people and other poc did to white people, racism exists because of WHITE PEOPLE being systematic oppressors. racism is 100% WHITE PEOPLE’S fault and portraying oppression as the result of the oppressed group’s actions is horrible.

also i hate hate hate hate it when fiction portrays oppression between two completely different species. zootopia did this shit and it sucked. it’s like saying that white people and people of color are inherently and unchangeably different and unity was never possible. newsflash, RACE IS AN ARBITRARY SOCIAL CONSTRUCT. THE LINES BETWEEN RACES ARE NEVER AS DEFINITIVE AS YOU PORTRAY THEM TO BE. YOUR FICTIONAL OPPRESSION IS NOT PROFOUND NOR INSIGHTFUL AND YOU DONT UNDERSTAND RACISM.

the human/omnic conflict is nothing more than lateral aggression. neither humans nor omnics are oppressed by the other. characters who hate omnics arent bigots and their hatred is understandable. i see a lot of social justice bloggers here who treat “omniphobia” like they treat racism and it is worrying. please consume media critically.

  • Dave Cullen is on the news. Dave Cullen is on the talk show. Dave Cullen is giving a lecture. “There’s no such thing as bullying,” he says. You know he is wrong, but everyone around you nods like he’s right. He has to be. He did ten years of research. But then you see something in his eyes when he says the name “Dylan Klebold”. A hunger.
  • There is a photograph of a pouting girl in a Natural Selection t-shirt. There is a photograph of a pouting girl in a Wrath t-shirt. There is a photograph of a locket with Eric Harris’ face on it. You don’t know how long you’ve been scrolling. It seems like forever. There is a photograph of a girl in a Wrath t-shirt.
  • Everyone has been arrested by the FBI for reblogging Columbine-related things. Even the Columbiners who don’t live in America. The FBI are cracking down on the dangerous youths. They are coming for us all.
  • You have heard legends about a photograph of Dylan Klebold hugging a cactus, but you never see the photograph. You vow that you will not rest until you see the photograph. Years go by. Decades. Centuries. You can never die, never rest, until you’ve seen the photograph.
  • “13 victims,” they say, over and over again. You tell them that they’re wrong, that there were actually 15. They all turn to you in unison. “13 victims,” they say, as one. “The massacre left behind 13 victims.”
  • There is another school shooting. The shooter worshipped the Columbine killers. They kept a journal. They listened to death metal. They wore black. “See?” the media says. “The shooter worshipped the Columbine killers. They always worship the Columbine killers.”
  • “Dylan Klebold was a follower,” someone says. “Eric Harris was a psychopath.” You ask them how they know that. Their face twists and stretches, and they turn into a hideous and terrifying creature, with fangs and a forked tongue. “I read Columbine by Dave Cullen,” the monster says. “It explains it all in there.”
  • You go to a blog. “Stray Bullet” by KMFDM blasts out of your speakers, on autoplay. You close the tab, but the music keeps playing. I am your apocalypse. I am your belief unwrought. Monolithic juggernaut. I’m the illegitimate son of god. It has always been playing.
  • There is a Columbine documentary on TV. Brooks Brown is there. He is always there.
  • An angry social justice blogger posts in the tag. “You should all die!” The post says. “You love murderers! You’re sick!” They call for the staff. The staff do not come. The staff never come.
  • You hear they’re making a film about Rachel Scott. It will be factual, they say. It will come out on the seventeenth anniversary of the shooting. You try to protest the film’s accuracy, but the Christians cannot hear you. They’re too busy singing “Cassie” by Flyleaf.
  • There were 13 victims, they say. Isaiah Shoels. Cassie Bernall. Rachel Scott. John Tomlin. Such losses, they say. So much wasted potential. You realise that’s only 4 names, but still they say there were 13 victims.

I’m going to be that guy and make one of these posts because I’m tired of the stupid people I follow. If you’re into any of these bands and aren’t an ignorant social justice blogger, like this post and I’ll follow you #sweg

If the characters from RENT were on tumblr
  • Collins: A social justice blogger with a slight stoner vibe. The kind who can calmly dissect ignorant fuckers with a well-worded and thorough argument.
  • Maureen: Also social justice, but the kind who is very impassioned and is occasionally a bit too rude. A few theater posts here and there.
  • Joanne: That one blogger who adds legal advice and support to posts about the police and your rights as a citizen just in case you get arrested.
  • Angel: Half fashion blog, half sassy advice blog. Treats her followers like they're her children. Has the most followers.
  • Mimi: Grunge aesthetic blogger. Lots of glitter and black and white pictures of naked women. Mostly pictures. Lots of selfies, of herself and of her with Roger.
  • Mark: Tons of gifs and caps of movies. Reviews of movies. Links to places you can illegally watch movies. Most likely to post about his day and to put up pictures of the gang all together.
  • Roger: Reblogs mostly music as well as putting up some of his own original music. Occasionally reblogs some pictures from the others. Most of his followers are there for his snarky and hilarious documentation of stupid things Mark does.
  • Benny: Has been inactive since he married Allison, although he did put up a memorial post when Evita the Akita died.

who-took-my-crown  asked:

I really didn't understand the post in Italian and lets be honest Google translate sucks I know this sounds like shit but could you give a brief overview about why statues are becoming an arguing point?

that post you saw is a follow up to this one where someone randomly states that ”greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs.” the op was trying to sarcastically prove that wrong by posting the pictures of greek/roman statues that had missing noses as well (there are a ton, bc the nose is one of the first parts on a sculpure that get ruined with time).

the argument of the post actually quickly turns into one of our many rants - in the form of a series of inside jokes which i would find hard to explain tbh - about how a lot of social justice bloggers (especially ones from the states) think italians as poc when we italians don’t identify as such, which is an issue the italian community on tumblr had to deal a lot with lately (there are apparently several american-italians blogs on here spreading wrong informations which brought many italians to start speaking against them. but i haven’t really payed attention and i don’t really follow that many italian bloggers to know about all that happened in details tbh). 

I keep getting messages and reblogs from people who assume I just don’t understand.  That I need dysphoria or gender identity explained to me in the most hand-holding way possible and that if you just reiterate the same points that every entry-level social justice blogger knows I’ll get it and agree with you.  Guys, I’ve been there.  I’m probably older than most of you and I’ve been entrenched in all the pomo identity politic stuff for years.  My disagreement does not come from ignorance, it comes from an intimate understanding of it all, from direct experience.  I don’t expect everyone who disagrees with me to read my entire blog in order to see where I’m coming from but I’m probably gonna just scroll past your explanation of trans 101 because I already know it’s bullshit.

the biggest thing I have a problem with about social justice bloggers is

we’re not all from the US

we don’t all experience things the same way as you do

and we don’t have the same culture as you do

some places don’t have anything like white privilege but there’s still racism

some places have racism as in whites against whites or blacks against blacks for cultural differences

can you stop assuming everything is like in the US

It is absolutely telling that the anti-sjw community defends white supremacists against any criticism while also being a community that mocks and obsesses over social justice bloggers.

It’s absolutely telling that they misapply freedom of speech to white supremacists while doing their best to harass “"sjws”“ into silence.

anonymous asked:

My conservative Christian upbringing/lack of adequate sex ed being taught in school or anywhere else in my life was the reason I was sexually assaulted. I didn't know enough about consent to know that I wasn't consenting even though I wasn't fighting and saying no. Do regs really not understand that that's what happens when kids/teens aren't taught sex ed and about consent? Do they want more teens to go through what I did? They honestly terrify me.

Yea the exact same for me…..to see so called “liberal social justice bloggers” advocating for the backwards conservative bullshit that caused my abuse is a fucking nightmare

  • tumblr: welcome to tumblr, where everyone is accepting and kind.
  • 'social justice' bloggers: ugh straight people need to go die
  • 'social justice' bloggers: ugh white people are so annoying
  • 'social justice' bloggers: ugh cis people need to burn in hell
  • 'social justice' bloggers: privileged people shouldn't be allowed to live even though they can't help being cis or hetero or white more than i can help being trans or gay or another race
  • 'social justice' bloggers: boy i sure am doing good for the world

I’m gonna shut up I swear but I’ve spent too many years on this site watching even the most vocal socially conscious justice critical whateverthefucktheycallthemselves bloggers ignore the fuck out of the disabled, especially disabled folk like me (ie my disability can’t be treated as a nice bonus prop to whatever oppressed minority they actually deem important) to give a goddamn fuck now y'all are waging war intercommunity and treating the slightest possibility of an issue as as willful hateful homophobia or racism or other genuine blatant issue (willful or normalised social shit)

Whatever good beginnings social justice and critical fandom culture on this site began with is, with specific goddamn exceptions, long fucking gone and replaced with a vile, self destructive, delusional fucking renal track of self aggrandizing, masterbatory, spiteful shit

I’m a bi, severe chronic pain suffering disabled, sexual assault survivor (of both a man and a woman) with a goddamn terrifying paranoid psychosis and depression and not once has the general culture of this site made me feel safe or protected. That y'all fucking cared or called out shit for me. Nor the racism for my black friends, the lesphobia for my lesbian friends, transphobia for my trans buddies. Or more importantly, for everyone like us. It’s always been in favour of first and for most the various fucking echo chamber cliques, who want to be a certain level of angry about a certain thing. The reasons don’t matter, they’ll just find whatever means they can, twist whatever established theory they can to look like a valid argument- it’s so common to see aspects once loved suddenly THE WORSE THING EVER now they’re mad, with an argument never even considered till now- and they’ll get along till someone disagrees on something and then they’ll split into new subfactions. Sure, there’s plenty of angry people angry over valid fucking bullshit. But damning something as the worse over stuff that is at best tangential and unintentional, a complex and unwinnable situation, or dependant on several completely unrelated and out of fiction concepts, personal headcanons and opinions, I straight up do not trust that you have good intentions at heart. Not one fucking bit.

That’s the fucking rub. It’s the arrogant pageantry that they’re fighting for something important, that they refuse to consider they’re being selfish alarming pricks making things far goddamn worse and succeeding at nothing, changing nothing, but making everyone fucking miserable and jerking off in their little moral pile.

I’m so fucking done. I have zero fucking sympathy for anyone who thinks or acts this way any more and I pray they live the most miserable fucking lives possible because it’s the least they deserve

A handy guide to tumblr terms
  • Racist: used to silence white people criticizing those of another race
  • Homophobe: used to silence straight people criticizing homo people
  • Misogynist: used to silence men criticizing women
  • Bigot: used to silence anyone with a different opinion
  • Transphobe: used to silence cis people criticizing trans people
  • Islamophobe: used to silence anyone criticizing a Muslim
  • Ignorant: used to shame those who don't know much about a certain subject
  • Diversity: only PoC, but only my kind of PoC
  • PoC: black people
  • Black Lives Matter: only care about blacks dying when white people do it
  • Internalized misogyny: used by women to silence women against feminism
  • Add any I may have missed

I feel like if Tumblr was a tv show it’d be Friends because you’ve got the science side, Ross who’s kinda silly and corrects and helps people. Plus dinosaurs man.

The aesthetic bloggers are like Rachael who want things to look good (fashionable), have high followers and they usually don’t follow back, then get confused (the ones I’ve talked to) if you didn’t automatically gain a bajillion followers.

The funny, stupid ones that make a lot of puns are Chandler, obviously.

Monica get’s to be the blogs who give advice and post personal stuff and tries desperately to gain followers because she has to win, but she is really nice even if she’s very much about things going her way.

Joey is lovely and friendly, he’s the blogs that probably aren’t having the best time but is always there. Bubbly and kind and friendly, they probably reblog a lot.

Phoebe is the social justice bloggers who seem really nice and want equality but will shout at you if you don’t believe the same thing as them, they’re not bad people though

The rest of us… are Gunther. Hoping to gain attention from the main 6 who are popular and cool while we just sort of derp around.

hey weaponized femininity is cool and all but don’t forget about the women who are pressured to conform to patriarchal cissexist eurocentric beauty standards don’t forget about all the girls who get told that they’ll never find a job unless they start wearing makeup don’t forget how “using your looks as a weapon” is a centuries old sexist trope that emphasises a woman’s appearance as the most valuable thing about her you know what i take it back weaponized femininity is not cool at all

i like thinking about animorphs set in modern day because

  • rachel in modern indie hipster fashion. high waisted shorts, the works
  • cassie is DEFINITELY a social justice blogger
  • ax discovering memes
  • “IM NOT SURE ABOUT THIS MARCO” “DO IT FOR THE VINE AX
