how do other white people manage to feel so persecuted on tumblr that they need to make a fucking half-assed photoset about it on the daily like the worst i’ve ever seen is ‘why can’t white people handle spicy food’ and i just read it like ‘yeah. yeah you’re right. i’m white and i buy mild salsa. you got me’
Hey, I just saw your post where you seemed to criticize the social justice side of tumblr and I think that's a little unfair. Of course, some people on tumblr can be hypocritical and you can call them out on it. But now it kind of feels like you're generalizing the whole social justice side of tumblr (a side that I consider to be a part of because social justice is very important to me). Just because there are some bad apples, doesn't mean none of us have something good to say C:
"But now it kind of feels like you’re generalizing the whole social justice side of tumblr"
Yep. I’m doing the exact same thing they do to us. Generalising and stereotyping. That was exactly the point. Giving them a taste of their own medicine.
According to those bad apples, I should delete my blog/commit suicide/just die because I’m CIS. Because according to them, ALL cis people are evil. ALL heterosexual people have to die. ALL men are pigs.
That’s just fucked up and I speak up about it. I have nothing against the social justice bloggers who actually fight for their cause with dignity and respect towards others.
But the kind of social justice bloggers I was talking about, the ones that personally attacked me in my inbox in the past, can rot in a trash can for all I care.
I don’t think it’s hardly fair to call those people social justice bloggers and generalize. Those kind of social justice bloggers that you got in your inbox are hardly represental and I don’t understand why you’re doing this. Fighting fire with fire, seems like an unnecessary evil to me.
Those cunts are unfortunately the ONLY type of social justice bloggers I have ever come across. I see so many contradictions in the goals that SJ bloggers want to achieve, it makes me a bit mad. I’m all for equality and all them other rights, but it’s getting harder and harder to stay nice when all I see is negativity towards what I identify as.
And I’m aware that’s what the oppressed people go through every single day, but they should know by now that a LOT of people on tumblr are accepting and they should trust us.
I don’t want to butt into a conversation that isn’t mine, but I thought I’d do it anyway. Ignore me if this topic is closed to you.
I get what you’re saying, batched, I really do. The people coming to your inbox sending those messages DO suck, that’s just not something you do. I’ve never had that before and I don’t want to. However, I don’t think it’s fair to generalize all sj-bloggers. I think of the sj-bloggers in your inbox as those who don’t think transgender women are ‘real’ women. They’re here to make a scene, to get just the reaction that you gave them, to cause more of a shitstorm.
People telling you that you should die, just because you’re cis suck. I hope you realize that (and I’m not trying to be condescending, really) when you see a post saying cis-scum or white people, it’s not about you (or me, or jimmotherfuckingmoriarty), it’s about people who DO do the bad stuff, who DO think being gay is wrong, who DO think that you’re less of a human being because of your skin. YOU don’t do that, I know, your followers know, people who’ve met you IRL know. Those are the people that matter, those are the people worth listening to. I can’t imagine what it’s like to get those messages, but all I can say is, try to turn your back, don’t listen to them. YOU are not the cis-scum, but you ARE part of the privileged group. Use that. Every time you see a post like that, think ‘hey, this isn’t about me’ or ‘well, damn, I DO do that, I should change that’.
ok but can you imagine in age of ultron bruce accidentally hulking out and everyone’s completely silent, no one moves a muscle and suddenly tony goes “alright can we talk about the elephant in the room” and everyone turns very slowly to look at bruce and then tony says “barton, whAT THE HELL ARE YOU WEARING”
Then you ought not to love this video of him and fellow performer trying to perform as they eat progressively hotter peppers. You can see they’re clearly in pain but my god I laughed until I kind of hurt. (It starts at 1:40)
I drew visuals for what we know so far about the naughty dwarf calender based off of this post. I also may actually make this into a real calender once we get more info about the other months!
I’ve also tweeted this to the respective cast members but they haven’t seen it yet because they were probably over flooded with notifications from hobbitcon because I have the worst timing OTL please help me get them to notice these drawings by retweeting them from here!
