Why are there so many people who find any reason they can to hate on filthy frank, idubbz, jontron, jacksfilms, pewdiepie, and so many other youtubers who really did nothing wrong except make jokes or have a difference of opinion from some people? It’s stupid to hate them or call them homophobic/transphobic/racist just because they don’t do exactly what you want. Also, too many times do these people try to make other people stop watching who they want just because they don’t like it,often calling them homophobic/transphobic/racist for just liking something. They throw around these terms so much that it just makes real acts of homophobia, trabsphobia, and racism seem less significant.
So last night, some poor intern at Yahoo probably lost their job with this tweet.
Learn to proofread, Beth! Anyway, Black Twitter was not bout to just let that slide and the GOLD going down in the #NiggerNavy hashtag has me crying. Now, I know some of my white friends/readers are slightly uncomfortable reading that hashtag, and that just means you were raised right. But Black America has enacted a brief – very brief – reprieve where you can read and even chuckle about the n-word without collapsing into a puddle of guilt. Note, this reprieve is not extended to speaking or typing, so I bet not see none of y’all’s handles on Twitter trynna participate. I already know Buzzfeed is probably finding one of their many Black folks to compile a list and blur out the i-g-g in each tweet so they can post it and catch those clicks real quick.
And tell your Trumpublican cousins to stay out of our hashtag with their whining about how racist it is that we can say it and they can’t.
Edit: I don’t check for Buzzfeed so I was wrong. I mean, yes, they already made a post, but they didn’t blur anything.
Cancer men fascinate me, honestly, a sign that is so incredibly sensitive living in a society that shames men for showing their true feelings, being even slightly feminine, crying, anything that can be related to being a “girl” or a “baby”. As a result they put up a shield or a fake persona most of the time, and deal with their feelings in poor ways, this is why most people can’t deal with them. They are sensitive, moody beings and just need help with being okay with that. I live with a cancer man, my brother, and even though his moon is in aquarius, he’s very sensitive. But he feels as though he has to hide this for some reason. They’re usually known to the public as “fuckboys” or players because they push others away, are quick with relationships and avoid getting really deep with another person because of this fear of their own emotions and judgement/rejection. A lot of people describe them as high maintenance, clingy, needy, etc., especially men with moon in cancer, but usually because they deal with fluctuations regarding their stability or home life that they really need actual stability in their lives. They can be hard to deal with, they’re fragile, and expect you to read their minds and when you can’t, you’re the worst person in the world, inconsiderate, whatever. Cancer men need to learn that feelings are okay. That they’re human beings who are just more sensitive than some. That it’s okay to be this way and that they are not their own worst enemy
I adore how people are just so salty about the nick tmnt. It’s getting to the point to where it’s funny. Like the kind that’s stupid. That kinda funny.
Like god forbid people actually enjoy the damn cartoon for once. Shit.
i really, dont get why people are like “ohh they’re only just a poor 15 year old :( they did not know what they were doing”. that just, does not make sense. abuse and stuff can be as present as elementary age. being a minor does not excuse you from being like that. they’re 15, that’s hardly a poor young child. that’s someone who isn’t, but is very close to being an adult. they can use their brain to rationalize decent behaviour. justifying this kind of abuse and everything is not good, and does not help.
You’re allowed to be angry about bad representation or lack of representation.
People who say “It’s a waste of energy” or “There are more important things to be angry about” or “It’s like you want to feel offended” are most likely people who are already well represented in media. It often sounds somewhat like “I’ve never lacked food in my life, so why do poor people not simply go and buy food? It’s like they want to be hungry!”.
But change occurs when people stand up. And sending a complaint to a tv channel who is handling lgbt+ representation badly (and similar actions) are not a waste of energy, they’re exactly that: It’s us standing up for our rights.
