Did you just comapre gay with being "girly"...

I highly doubt it, considering that I’m a firm believer that homosexuality does not actually affect your personality in any way, shape, or form, and that it’s a preference about as important as whether or not you like ketchup or mustard.

Though if you wanna specify the post you’re referring to instead of being vague, you could also do that.

“It’s Monday. I’m going home at 6pm and a middle aged man and a teenage boy are the only people left on the bus with me. I consider the fact that because the driver is also a man I am the only person left on the bus with the correct genetic makeup for boobs. I’m automatically scared, scared because of my own anatomy. I wonder how old I was when I realized that my own body was going to be the cause of the constant anxiety and fear I feel in situations like this. I get off at the last stop and the older man smiles at me while following me up the street. His smile drips, drips, drips and my heart is pounding, pounding, pounding. He turns off down another road, but I run the rest of the way home. Not all men. I’m at home on a Tuesday, beginning to plan the travels I want to go on next year. I dream of wandering the streets and meeting strangers. I just can’t wait to escape the city I’ve lived in for 17 long years. But… my mum is hesitant. She’s forever worried about the danger that being a young girl traveling alone can bring. I’ll be alone and she’s scared. Surely I’m invincible. I feel invincible. But I know, I know this danger is real and I can’t help but think to myself, if I feel unsafe in my own city, how am i going to feel in a strange place with strange men who don’t speak the same language as me? If I was my brother planning this, I would probably just be wondering if European girls are going to be hot. Not all men. Wednesday is a beautiful sunny day but I’ve always been told that I don’t have a “nice enough body” to wear a bikini on the beach. Ever since I was 6 years old I’ve thought that having tummy fat was ugly. That skin that doesn’t have a perfectly golden glow is undesirable. I amble to a clear patch of sand in my one piece and I can feel pairs of eyes latching onto me. Hairy men in speedos who I don’t look twice at eat into my body with their stares. I’m a piece of meat. I am a piece of meat? I am here for their amusement. Please don’t let me be eaten alive. Not all men. Thursday night two friends and I are walking to our god damn school dance when we hear “Jesus look at you! You sluts heading to a pole?” These words snarl out of the mouth of a respectably dressed man and we stop in horror. Shivers roll up my back in fear. It’s dark. We are alone. What. Do. We. Do??? One of us pulls the finger back. I can never be sure how quickly a sexist man can get angry so we walk quickly away. We’re angry, so so angry. But also so… deflated. I wonder if we deserve this shame. Not all men. Sitting on the internet, Friday night and scrolling down my Facebook newsfeed: “Haha, good job at the game today bro. You RAPED them!” “Damn with tits like that, you’re asking for it :P” Another sexist comment… Another sexist comment… Another sexist comment… I’m shrinking and shrinking and shrinking and I want to CRY because these boys don’t realize how small they make me feel with just pressing a few keys. I see these boys on the streets, I talk to these boys, I laugh with these boys. Dear GOD, dear GOD i hope these boys don’t think actions speak louder than words… Not all men. Three rules that have been drilled into me since I was young run through my mind at 1.30am on a Satur… Sunday Morning: -Don’t ever talk to strange men -Don’t ever be alone at night in a strange place -Don’t ever get into a car with a stranger I break all 3 of these laws as I pull open the taxi door. Making light conversation with the driver, he doesn’t see my sweaty hand clutching the small pocket knife I keep hidden on me at all times. He doesn’t even realize the fear I feel at his mere presence. He cannot comprehend it, he never will. How easy would this 15 minute car ride be if I was born a boy? Not all men. It comes to Sunday, another snoozy, sleepy, Sunday and someone has the AUDACITY to tell me not all men are rapists. I say nothing. I’m a 17 year old girl. When I am walking alone and it’s dark, it’s all men. When I am in a car with a man I don’t know well, it’s all men. When men drunkenly leer at me on the streets, it’s all men. When a boy won’t leave me alone at a party, it’s all men. Not all men are rapists. But for a young girl like me? Every one of them has the potential to be. Not. All. Men.”

— a piece i wrote for an english assignment about my personal experiences with rape culture, in particular with the saying “not all men” which i know has been makin a lot of controversy on the internet recently! idk just wanted to share (via trueho)

So to prove your point that all men are potentially rapists, you tell six or seven different stories about you interacting with a bunch of men who didn’t rape you?

Oh wait, right, one of them SMILED at you, the horror.

Well tumblrfems, you’ve created a whole generation of paranoid girls and women who are scared of their own shadow. Tell me again how your ideology empowers people.

DO NOT BUY THE NEXT MIRRORS EDGE GAME

DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE PURCHASING ANY EA GAME IN THE NEAR FUTURE

EA HAS HIRED ANITA SARKEESIAN TO WORK ON MIRRORS EDGE

DO NOT SUPPORT ANITA UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES

SHE NEEDS TO BE RUN THE FUCK OUT OF THE GAMING INDUSTRY

imageNo, she should not be allowed anywhere near games! 

HOLY SHIT a woman who voices popular opinions on Female roles in video games was hired to work on a video game with a female protagonist???? I can’t believe this shit how did we let this happen, it’s almost like game developers WANT to make sure about strong, developed roles. God, the nerve of some people.

Nice strawman, that’s totally why people are mad.

No, it’s because Anita’s a toxic person with toxic ideals. She cherry-picks and falsely represents her examples, steals people’s artwork without their permission and proceeds to not pay for it, blatantly lies about her interests (which is fucking important when you’re trying to make a point about said interest), and pretty much uses the feminist platform to cheat people out of their money.

Not to mention that she claimed to have won an award as the first woman to do so, when the ACTUAL first woman who won that award was the person giving it to her.

At this point, I’m pretty sure she’s just a professional troll who’s using people’s gullibility to make money. And holy goddamn is she good at it.

Honest to the deity above, that whitepeoplestealingculture Tumblr scares me. It is page by page pictures of white folks, photographed around people of other races and little comments on the bottom saying: "Look at that scum trying to be friends with an actual human being". For some reason, people don't see anything wrong with that and consider it "justice".

Welcome to the “Us vs. Them” Mentality gone to absolute shit. You’ll see it with hardcore Christians towards gay/non-christian people, democrats vs republicans, and yes, even racism on both sides.

There’s a reason I haven’t posted much lately. I firmly believe that surrounding yourself in this type of stuff will jade you. Really, really hard. If all you do is spend your time looking for these kinds of blogs, your brain will start to trivialize actual instances of it, and you’ll even react to little things relevant to the subject where the person talking about it is actually valid.

There’s a psychiatric term for it, but I can’t recall what it is. It’s relevant to confirmation bias, but it’s not quite that.

On average, you have a 1 in 18,989 chance of being murdered

A trans person has a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered

The average life span of a cis person is about 75-90 

The average life expectancy of a trans person is 23-30 years old

75% of people killed in anti LGBT hate crimes are poc

Think about this the next time you go crying over “cisphobia” and “reverse racism”

Okay, let’s assume they’re talking about the US. There are 700k trans people, so if 1 in 12 are murdered, that’s 58k murders. There are ~350M non-trans people in the US. If 1 in 18,989 of cis people are murdered, that’s 18k cis murders.

So, if these stats are true, 3 out of every 4 murders in the US is a trans person. That is obviously untrue, so we have shown these statistics are a lie.

No one is crying over cisphobia or reverse racism. Mostly because that second one doesn’t exist, it’s just called racism. Even if it doesn’t make a fundamental impact on society, you’re still a shitbag for hating someone for traits they have no control over.

destroyingenjoying sent a submission of a photoset white people created to whine how they’re not oppressed, so I added some commentary in red.

Here we have some racist idiot on Tumblr trying their absolute hardest to explain away the fact that most reasonable people, even the ones that they label as PoC and Oppressed, don’t actually care about trivial bullshit made up by whiny teenagers and college kids who think they know or understand anything substantial about the world around them.

Hey there, my name is Neil and I am a white, cisgendered, straight male "shitlord". But, I am really passionate about social justice! I wanna participate in activism and make a difference in the world! But I am afraid others will either see me as A.) A hard-core oppressor, who is talking over the oppressed or B.) An insane SJW and not take me seriously. :(. You seem like a reasonable person. Do you have any advice on what makes a good activist, compared to a bad one? Thanks in advance.

Easiest way to go about it is participating in actual activism. Y’know, donate money to various organizations that exist to actually better the lives of various gender/sexual/racial minorities, have actual valid, reasoned discussions about these topics that don’t resort to ad hominem and stupid logic, have patience with people who don’t understand instead of screaming at them, and calmly explain what it is you are trying to say. If you have actual, valid points, and even if they go away from it disagreeing with you, they will still have doubt, and you will have allowed them to, at the very least, try and think a little differently about the subject in the future.

Do what sounds right to you. You don’t have to go on a gigantic rant about privilege and how every white person is born a racist shitlord to be an activist. Be what you know to be a decent person, and you can accomplish a hell of a lot more in bettering the lives of anyone than some whiny tumblrite who thinks that getting a bunch of notes on an image about “male gaze” is somehow helping anything.

The misinformation you have about Sociology is literally baffling. May Neil Degrasse Tyson have mercy on your ignorant soul.

I’m fairly sure this is sarcasm, considering I pretty much never bring up sociology. So I’ll just chuckle to myself and nod at your quip.

oh my gooood that article about the white boy getting beat up was obviously fake holy shit you people are so gullible i love it

I wasn’t responding to the validity of the article, I was responding to the idea that Googling racism would merit any result other than the actual definition of racism, that being prejudice/discrimination based on race.

I would try reading what the person says before responding to it, it usually results in less stupid comments like this one.

The last three Disney films that starred POC were the Emperor’s New Groove in 2000, Brother Bear in 2003 and Princess and the Frog in 2009.

What did they have in common?

Exactly.

Exactly, what? No other field would allow you to just present innocuous…

You’re literally going off about a post that points out the inequalities of PoC in disney movies….. do you have a life or nah?

You’re also literally going off on my random complaints, doing the exact same thing. Nice job with the hypocrisy.

Also, I didn’t realize that spending five minutes laughing at some idiot on the internet was “Not having a life.” Actually, now that I think about it, I don’t think I’ve actually met anyone who tried to use the “HURR DUR NO LIFE” comment since my Freshman year of High School way back when.

Are you fourteen? I hope so, for your sake.

Why does my age matter?? Plus you literally spent 5 minutes of your life trying to prove them wrong for something that already has the receipts to prove you wrong. Also, now that I think about it, thank you for calling me 14! That just proves something that I’ve thought for a long time

Your age matters because fourteen year old teenagers are notorious for their lack of proper judgement, as well as trying to say idiotic things like “YOU DUN HAVE A LIFE CAUSE YOU SAID A THING.” Why? Their brains are literally not developed yet. That is a biological fact that you can’t ignore.

I didn’t say that anyone was worth less because of their age. But when someone comes in and says something THAT stupid, and the largest demographic of people who believe that to be an insult are stupid teenagers.. it’s a simple process of elimination.

Also, you’re going to have to show me that proof you speak of, because so far you’re just kind of yapping without evidence. I have given mine, why don’t you give yours?

Unless of course, you don’t have any. Which I don’t doubt.
