  • Cisgender people aren’t automatically transphobic just because they’re cis.
  • White people aren’t automatically racist because they’re white.
  • Men aren’t automatically misogynistic, rapists or abusers, just because they’re men.
  • Everyone can be racist to everyone else of a different race. Reverse racism doesn’t exist, it’s just racism, everyone is capable of it.
  • Anyone who lies about rape accusations should receive prison time.
  • Everyone is entitled to a proper course of justice in the court of law.
  • Transgender men should be put in men’s prisons, transgender women should be put in women’s prisons.
  • Women can be abusive to their partners. Do not automatically victimise women or say “this motive means that the man deserved it” are you fucked in the head?
  • People who are incapable of looking after their child should not receive custody over the other parent.
  • Feminism is great. Everyone deserves equality, and the proper precautions should be put in place at demonstrations. However, extreme feminism is not great. It gives feminism a bad name. If you go out there shouting “MEN ARE PIGS!” “MEN DESERVE TO DIE!” and all that bullshit, you’re a fucking moron.
  • Transpecies and transrace are not things. You cannot be cat, or a horse or a fucking bunny rabbit. You cannot be black, or Asian or anything else to the race you were born. I’m sorry, but it’s true. Go ahead and call me transphobic (even though I’m not)
  • The amount of genders and sexualities that Tumblr is creating is fucking ridiculous. “Angeligender– A gender found only among angels, that is hard to describe to non-angels. For godkin and angelkin only.” “Lichtgender- A gender represented by a ball of light.” “Zodiacgender– A catch-all gender term that is used to describe when one’s gender is related to a (or their specific) zodiac sign.” I’m sorry, what?? What the fuck? No.
  • There is not 76 fucking genders. Fuck off.
  • If you are transgender male and deliberately present as female, or transgender female and deliberately present as male, and then complain that someone misgendered you, that’s your fault, nobody else’s.
  • NON-BINARY, GENDERFLUID AND AGENDER PEOPLE ARE ENTITLED TO HAVE THEY/THEM PRONOUNS USED TO IDENTIFY THEM.
  • If you are 13 and your boyfriend is 20, I’m sorry, but he’s a paedophile. “Age is just a number” yeah, then prison is just a room.
  • Stalking celebrities to a point where you find out where they live is NOT okay. Stop being a creepy little weirdo and play outside or some shit.
  • You are not edgy because you hate people. You are not edgy for self-diagnosing mental health issues. You are not edgy for self-diagnosing other medical issues. You’re a twat.

they took the hair on our legs and decided it was a shameful, disgusting thing

they said nothing about their own leg hair

they took our genitals and decided it was an ugly, disgusting and shameful thing, only good enough for them to use for their pleasure

they praised their own genitals and drew them on every corner of this planet

they took our bodies and decided they have to be fragile, small and easy to objectify, or we aren’t worth as human beings anymore

they keep their human value no matter what they look like

they took our periods, neglecting they were all born from them, and decided they were gross and shameful thing, not even to be mentioned in their presence

all pain they have to go through is over-dramatized and talked about constantly

they took our clothes and made it uncomfortable, see through, impractical, revealing, objectifying

then they accused us of distracting them when we wear it, accused us of asking for unwanted touch and abuse when they feel entitled to our bodies

they set us up in a trap then laughed at us for suffering inside of it

they never intended to acknowledge our pain

what’s been done to us is “life”, according to them

what they do to each other is “our fault”, according to them

we’ve been used as scapegoats for their own faults

we’ve been used as toys for their pleasure and satisfaction

we’ve been used as trophies for them to show off their importance

it was enough

I had enough.

I feel like some of the hatred for Dany goes too far. Like yes, I can understand hating her storyline( and as a woc I don’t like some of the white imperialistic tones in her story either, but that’s more the fault of how her story is written than the actual character), but some of the accusations like “she’s spoiled and entitled”, and “she hasn’t suffered enough” are weird because she spent the first thirteen years of her life on the run, kicked out of the only home she ever had at five, with an abusive older brother who hated her for something she wasn’t able to control (their mother’s death from childbirth) who then sold her like an animal to a man that then raped her repeatedly until she gained some autonomy in the marriage. She, a thirteen (sixteen in the show) year old child was forced into a culture she didn’t want, a marriage she didn’t want, and that doesn’t qualify as “ enough suffering” to some of y'all? That’s being spoiled?

Oh and she’s “entitled ”, well Scoobert, that’s to be expected when her older brother whispered into her ear since she was a baby that the Targaryens was robbed of their throne by “the usurpers and their dogs” and that they were the rightful rulers and that they must take what is theirs with “fire and blood”. In her mind, she is the rightful heir to the throne because she was told from birth it was stolen from her.

And she’s a “terrible queen”, well no shit Scoob that’s to be expected when she spent thirteen years of her life on the run and raised as only a consort to her brother, and only had true agency when she was fifteen and rid of both brother and husband. She’s not going to be an amazing queen out of nowhere with no experience and no lessons taught on how to rule until she had Jorah, Barristan, and Tyrion(show) as advisors.

She’s learning, she’s growing, calm down on a sixteen year old girl who’s still learning how to rule compared to several of your middle-aged male faves who are experienced and should know better.

“I’d rather go shack up with a grounder than sleep in close proximity to this drama queen,” Murphy snapped at Bellamy whilst staring you dead in the eye. You glanced at Bellamy, who simply rose his eyebrows in response.

Maintaining your composure, you stood up straighter and took a deep breath. “If anyone’s the drama queen around here, it’s you,” you retorted, earning a playful glare from Murphy. You’d never been the kind to snap back like that, mostly because no one’s ever had a reason to snap at you in the first place. Bellamy smiled, but dropped it as soon as he saw the determination in your eyes. The look was so foreign on your face that it even put him on edge.

Remember all the "the haters were wrong" 9/10 reviews DmC got? That was another case of entitlement accusations, except all the journalists could not articulate their points well enough and it the sales show it.

I think a lot of journo’s reputation died that day and never recovered because of DmC. It’s almost bizarre that they all died and continued to double down on well after release for DONTE DA DEMON KILLAH

I’m laughing cause ada’s mom accused me of being entitled??? Except, I literally spent the whole vacation over stressing my body until it hurt, ignoring my pain signals, not complaining about hurting, so that I wouldn’t ruin anyone else’s vacation by being disabled. I didn’t buy any souvenirs except for a fucking fidget spinner for 3 dollars. I specifically bought food that wasn’t expensive and didn’t eat the snacks until the last few days there because I didn’t want her to have to spend more money than she already did. but ok. I’m entitled, yep.

This is Wrestling

And in wrestling,nothings lasts long. It dosen’t matter if we talk about champions,wrestlers, title reigns, heels,baby faces,gimmicks, theme songs,etc. Times will always change. But if I have to name ONE thing that will never change in WWE, It will be..

The fans.

WWE fans that can never be pleased. Not all of them,of course,just some of them. The same fans who,for some DUMBASS reason,believe that they are entitled to accuse wrestlers of beign ‘not good enough’ or 'they don’t deserve __(insert everything you want here) .

But,here comes my option.

Who in the name of hell do we think we are?! Who are we to decided who deserves something and who dosen’t? Because I’m sorry honey, but last time I checked neither of us could do HALF of what WWE wrestlers do. Of course,is it OKAY TO have a different opinion on who should’ve won,as long as you don’t attack the other wrestler ,degrading him or her,just to get your point across.

And we ALSO have to realize that:

The WWE wrestlers are not in any kind of control of what happens in the creative team/room. The WRITERS are the ones that decide for them,so if you’re going to bash on a wrestler for doing their job,then remember that they.are.just.doing.their.job. They can’t decide!

And now,let’s disscus about Enzo and Cass.

I love both of them,and I couldn’t be more proud of them. Enzo is a great smack talker,but he still needs training in NXT. However, I would hate to see him leave before beign a champion.

Cass proved that he’s amazing on the mic as well,and his abilities in the ring are also good,but again,he still needs some practice. However,they’ve been in WWE for 5 years, so he and Enzo still have time.

And now,and l have left to say is..

Get over it!

Yes,they broke up. Yes,they were amazing together. Yes,their split broke our hearts and it hurt to see them both of them like this.

However, people need to chill about Cass. CASS didn’t broke our hearts,THE CREATIVE TEAM AND THE WRITERS did. Stop calling him names or sending him hate just because you’re 'defending ’ Enzo. It’s just a storyline who is meant to make them improve.

Yes,I agree it was a stupid idea to split them before WWE made them champions, but you have to understand that more opportunities are coming in their way. I honestly believe Enzo will be drafted to Smack Down where he will become a champion or stay to RAW and form a Tag Team with Big Show and they’ll be Tag Team Champions. Whatever it is,we should be happy for both of them. Not only for ONE of them,because excuse me honey,but if you loved Cass when he was with Enzo,then you can love him when he’s solo too.

This is World Wrestling Entertainment. Not World Friendship Entertainment.

Friendships break!

Relationships break too!

Hell,even Family don’t mean shit sometimes!

This is Wrestling.

And in wrestling, sometimes,brothers, family, sisters, etc,don’t mean shit.


'Oh,but Tag Teams can succed if they are tight enough!’

Bull.shit.

It’s bullshit,tho!

You can say what you want,but you can see that WWE (at least RAW) don’t give a fuck about your friendships

If they would,Enzo and Cass,JeriKO, and the other infinite of tag teams that broke up would be together today!

Of course,there are teams who got back together after a time.

The Bella Twins.

The Hardy Boys.

The Nexus.

And many others.

But,the trust will not ever be the same.

I don’t know about you,but I’d rather see Enzo alone than see him always in distress because Cass might turn on him again.

This is just my silly personal opinion. Feel free to disagree and we’ll talk about it!

marril96  asked:

I love your anti descriptions. Can you describe an entitled anti who harasses and accuses the show and its creators and cast of queerbaiting when their ship (of two straight men) doesn't become canon?

Certainly! Some antis believe that creators are obliged to cater to their desires - a trait common in most species.

Thank you for your support!

Proof that “rape culture” is a feminist myth

The nation’s largest and most influential anti-sexual-violence organization is rejecting the idea that culture - as opposed to the actions of individuals - is responsible for rape.

“Rape is as American as apple pie,” says blogger Jessica Valenti. She and her sisters-in-arms describe our society as a “rape culture” where violence against women is so normal, it’s almost invisible. Films, magazines, fashion, books, music, humor, even Barbie - according to the feminist activists - cooperate in conveying the message that women are there to be used, abused and exploited. Recently, rape-culture theory has migrated from the lonely corners of the feminist blogosphere into the mainstream. The White House asserted that we need to combat campus rape by “[changing] a culture of passivity and tolerance in this country, which too often allows this type of violence to persist.”

Tolerance for rape? Rape is a horrific crime, and rapists are despised and put in prison. We have strict laws that Americans want to see enforced. Though rape is certainly a serious problem, there’s no evidence that it’s considered a cultural norm. Twenty-first century America does not have a rape culture; what we have is an out-of-control lobby leading the public and our educational and political leaders down the wrong path. Rape-culture theory is doing little to help victims, but its power to poison the minds of young women and lead to hostile environments for innocent males is immense.

On college campuses, obsession with eliminating “rape culture” has led to censorship and infantile hysteria. At Boston University, student activists launched a petition demanding the cancellation of a Robin Thicke concert because the lyrics of his hit song “Blurred Lines” allegedly celebrate “systemic patriarchy and sexual oppression.” (The lyrics may not exactly be pleasant to many women, but song lyrics don’t turn men into rapists. Yet, ludicrously, the song was banned at more than 20 British universities.) Activists at Wellesley recently demanded that administrators remove a statue of a sleepwalking man: The image of a male in his underwear could “trigger” memories of sexual assault for victims. At Harvard Law School, feminist students demanded that their professors must not teach any laws concerning rape or sexual assault. Works such as The Great Gatsby, Metamorphoses and Mrs Dalloway have all been banned from university reading lists simply because some self-absorbed students find the content emotionally challenging. 

Meanwhile, a growing number of young men find themselves accused of rape, named publicly and brought before campus judicial panels informed by rape-culture theory. In such kangaroo courts, due process is practically nonexistent: guilty because accused. They are not allowed to know who has made the accusation against them, they are not entitled to any defense. Yet many of these cases eventually turn out to prove that the male student is innocent but by then it is too late, his life has already been ruined and he will continue to face the stigma of a rapist. 

Rape-culture theorists dismiss critics who bring up examples of hysteria and false accusations as “rape denialists” and “rape apologists.” To even suggest that false accusations occur, according to feminists, is to engage in “victim blaming.” But now, rape culturalists are confronting a formidable critic that even they will find hard to dismiss.

RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) is America’s largest and most influential anti-sexual-violence organization. It’s the leading voice for sexual-assault victim advocacy. Indeed, rape-culture activists routinely cite the authority of RAINN to make their case. But in RAINN’s recent recommendations to the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault, it repudiates the rhetoric of the anti–“rape culture” movement:

In the last few years, there has been an unfortunate trend towards blaming “rape culture” for the extensive problem of sexual violence on campus. While it is helpful to point out the systemic barriers to addressing the problem, it is important not to lose sight of a simple fact: Rape is caused not by cultural factors but by the conscious decisions, of a small percentage of the community, to commit a violent crime.

RAINN urges the White House to “remain focused on the true cause of the problem” and suggests a three-pronged approach for combating rape: empowering community members through bystander intervention education, using “risk-reduction messaging” to encourage students to increase their personal safety and promoting clearer education on “where the ‘consent line’ is.” It also asserts that we should treat rape like the serious crime it is by giving power to trained law enforcement rather than internal campus judicial boards.

RAINN is especially critical of the idea that we need to focus on teaching men not to rape - the hallmark of feminist activism. Since rape exists because our culture condones and normalizes it, feminists say, we can end the epidemic of sexual violence only by teaching boys not to rape.

No one would deny that we should teach boys to respect women. But by and large, this is already happening. By the time men reach college, RAINN explains, “most students have been exposed to 18 years of prevention messages, in one form or another.” The vast majority of men absorb these messages and view rape as the horrific crime that it is. So efforts to address rape need to focus on the very small portion of the population that “has proven itself immune to years of prevention messages.” They should not vilify the average guy.

By blaming so-called rape culture, we implicate all men in a social atrocity, trivialize the experiences of survivors, and deflect blame from the rapists truly responsible for sexual violence. RAINN explains that the trend of focusing on rape culture “has the paradoxical effect of making it harder to stop sexual violence, since it removes the focus from the individual at fault, and seemingly mitigates personal responsibility for his or her own actions.”

Moral panic over “rape culture” helps no one - least of all, survivors of sexual assault. College leaders, women’s groups and the White House have a choice. They can side with the thought police of the feminist blogosphere who are declaring war on music, magazines, statues and children’s dolls. Or they can listen to the sane counsel of RAINN, as they don’t listen to anyone else.

Nice try, but ...

The WestAllen shippers don’t need to stop anything. The first mistake in that phony olive branch of a post – and sign of insincerity, to be honest – was claiming that there are two fandoms: One for the legitimate leading couple and another for the other the ship that never was. There is one show, “The Flash,” and different ships within that fandom. I can’t account for whatever show certain people thought they were watching, I just know that I watch “The Flash.” And in that universe, WestAllen is the romance

As long as I’ve been watching the fandom operate, mostly from the sidelines through S1 and a little closer in S2, it’s been the SB supporters who have antagonized those who acknowledged and supported the real leading couple, and the undisputed leading lady. It’s been the Snowbarry fans who have insulted the leading lady at every opportunity (one of the most incredulous – a photo manip with the entire cast, except the leading lady, and Caitlyn embracing The Flash/Barry).

The above was a juvenile waste of time, hardly worth mentioning until the animosity took a deranged turn with people making overtly racist remarks about Candice and accusing her of – I can barely write it – granting sexual favors to the producers to get the role?!?!

Listen up kids: We live in a rape culture, whether we want to acknowledge it or not. Hollywood happens to be the profession, aside from porn and prostitution, where it’s acceptable to professionally value women for their sexual attractiveness to straight white men. No two ways about it, even in 2016. It’s an environment where you had better believe that smart, driven, respectable and beautiful women including Candice Patton, Nicole Beharie, Kylie Bunberry, and Meagan Good have had to deal with brazen, sleazy come-ons from rich and powerful white men. Can we even deny this, in light of what we’ve heard even about Bill Cosby’s predatory behavior? It’s tough enough for white actresses like Rose McGowan, who recently came forward with claims of having been raped earlier in her career. Where do you think that leaves Black actresses? To be preyed on at parties, molested on the set or sexually assaulted at someone’s office or home? And with less of a fanbase and power network behind her to protect her? 

The Snowbarry shippers’ cowardly, anonymous, poison-pen posts and their vile, racist, fever-brained accusations contribute to an atmosphere that entitles rich men to sexually prey on young women who are just trying to earn a living while practicing their craft. The racial dynamic has most certainly given influential white men a pass to engage in this weird Thomas Jefferson/Sally Hemmings power play. In light of the revelations about the boastful and predatory behavior of the Republican nominee – how can you accuse Candice of something like that? It wasn’t funny. 

Keep your olive branch. Better yet, keep all of your opinions to yourself. There is no going back from the deranged Tweets, photo manips, the name-calling and the rumors at this point. Even if you didn’t personally contribute to the toxic atmosphere, if you failed to disavow and refute these things as Candice got dragged, then you were just as bad. Don’t try to cover your butts now. You’ve shown the producers, the American entertainment press and – thanks to Candice and Grant’s global appeal – the world what a real Ugly American backside looks like. And you lost.
