Not to be like a total hipster but unless you’re new here, you gotta admit that being “anti-SJW” became cool/popular/edgy at some point. And now you have a near-equal amount of self-righteous fucking morons and sheepy/parroty little shits on this side of the debates.

boo.

Found a site called rationalhub. Yay.

They have a tumblr that posts nice quotes, largely. Yay.

Read the tumblog’s sidebar and a few articles on the main site. Apparently it’s a typical ‘Social Justice’ disaster.

So conflicted rn.

Not that anyone cares about white European countries but

We do have our own tensions between different ethnic groups, and the related privileges and discrimination and so on. The dynamics are a little different than they are between racial groups in USA and so on, but it’s still an actual thing and it’s more relevant to us than the concept and issues around “white privilege”, because obviously we’re all white here, being “white” is basically meaningless.

I don’t know what it means to be an ethnic minority where I live but my neighbors do. What do I got? ‘Ethnic majority privilege’? I’ll accept that, I do. But it’s significantly different from having ‘white privilege’ in the US.

(I’M JUST SAYING, OKAY, in case anyone wants to broaden their horizons. But I think it’s okay to be USA-centric in your SJ conversations if you’re US-ian or from a similar multi-racial country. I’m not criticizing anyone here.)

If you’re ever puzzled by the “this is not a social justice blog!!” lines.

White Americans have as much of a right to speak on behalf of Europeans as African-Americans have to speak on behalf of Africans

That is, absolutely fucking none

NEWSFLASH: D.I.D. ISN’T SYNONYMOUS WITH INTENSE ROLEPLAYING

At some point it becomes acceptable to punch people for pulling this kind of bullshit, right?

http://the-roulette-system.tumblr.com/tagged/Headmate

"Hello, there. my name is meaghan. i suffer from d.i.d: Dissociative Identity Disorder. I have a system of eight personalities in my head other than my own."

http://saptarishi-mandalam-system.tumblr.com/tagged/Headmate

"My name is Jenna. I suffer from D.I.D or Dissociative Identity Disorder. We are a system. A human with seven different personalities."

Both proceed to post FULL CHARACTER PROFILES of their “alters”, complete with anime-style illustrations and “typing quirks” and other fancy bullshit. Apparently all of the three listed headmates are also otherkin (two foxes and a panther).

THIS ISN’T DID, THIS IS ROLEPLAYING. YOU PEOPLE ARE DISGUSTING.

Huh

It’s funny, at least a handful of people who reblogged the “Pretending You’re Oppressed” link said something along the lines of, “Great article, except for the part about demisexuality.” More than one accused the author of saying that demisexuality isn’t real — when the article didn’t actually say that at all. Learn to read, omg. And don’t even nod along to the article when you yourself are the problem. Holy shit, people don’t care about the specifics and nuances of your sex drive, that’s not oppression.

Something to consider: people aren’t supportive of the LGB and T because they (the supporters) are like super-interested in other people’s sex lives. They’re supportive because they’re decent people and the LGB and T actually need more widespread support. (Because apparently it’s still news to so many people that same-sex couples are okay, and that some people want to get sex changes and that it’s okay — and that it’s not okay to get violent and discriminatory about it.) Don’t try to hi-jack that support to bring attention to yourself, no one gives a fuck about what EXACTLY it takes to make you wet. Christ.

Mate, white bread is our “bread”.

Then what do you call the “dark bread”? Lemme guess, “bread”?

You guys are lame. Bread and white bread are totally different and deserve separate words.

the grass is always more privileged on the other side of the fence

Ten bucks says cruelyouth deleted her Tumblr to make it look like Tumblr staff are huge racists. Or something.

I’m guessing because of how quickly the url was reoccupied. (Banned users’ deleted blogs remain occupied, it’s not possible to re-register them.)

THE INTERNET STILL REMEMBERS THE SHIT YOU SAID.

Nice archive you have there.

Although for the record, not all banned accounts get their URLs disabled. I have been banned before, and had no issue reclaiming this very same URL of mine.

Interesting. I went to the create new blog page and tested a few urls that got suspended very recently, they were occupied though the blogs don’t exist.

It’s possible tumblr has made some changes to this stuff recently. Because I no longer see urls like ‘username69xx-deactivated20100506’ around (on old asks and such things).

choice quotes from the big martyr

"but there’s like a 99.99999% probability Tumblr will delete my blog after I stood up for myself" [no one believes this, not even hir]

"kill yourself, you ableist asshole"

"…I’m just going to tell everybody who’s been harassing me non-stop and Riley non-stop to go kill themselves (and I sincerely think they should…they tell us to all the time, just not as explicitly as I’m doing it to them).” (^emphasis mine)

"Anybody who doesn’t know what being facetious is needs to go die."

"I’d rather be suspended for trying to get these fuckers off of me than to keep reporting to Tumblr and keep being harassed for standing up to them and for trying to help out a friend"

"No seriously, ridding all of you from society would be very beneficial. Go into the kitchen, get a knife, and start carving."

(Note: I do not support the reporting/deletion of ANY blogs over personal or political bickerings/so-called “harassment”.)
