Fan-fuckin-tastic. Now because Elliot Rogers, an aspergers kid, killed 7 women because he can’t deal with rejection, there are a group of conservative idiots trying to put all people with aspergers in mental asylums.

Two women and four men, actually. But sure, we can just make up whatever victims are convenient to our agenda this week. And what’s the proposed alternative, just letting him kill people?

I swear, Tumblr lives in a padded cell with a sign on the door “No Rational Logic Allowed.”

#YesAllWomen because many people are more offended by this hashtag than they are by the prevalence of violence against women

Men are several times as likely as women to be murdered [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1635092]. The recent Santa Barbara shootings that inspired this hashtag actually have twice as many male victims as female victims.

Without having a male present and I just want to do my daily jog without having to worry about why that truck suddenly slowed down and pulled over.

I’m a woman and I feel safe going on daily jogs. Don’t assume that your personal issues are something every woman faces, just because you face them and you are a woman.

#YesAllWomen because ‘I have a boyfriend’ is more effective than ‘I’m not interested’—men respect other men more than my right to say no

Because I’ve already rehearsed “Take whatever you want, just don’t hurt me.” #YesAllWomen

#YesAllWomen because every time I try to say that I want gender equality I have to explain that I don’t hate men.

Men’s greatest fear is that women will laugh at them, while women’s greatest fear is that men will kill them. -Margaret Atwood #YesAllWomen

Because in about 30 states, rapists whose victims choose to keep the baby can get parental rights, like weekend visitation. WTF #YesAllWomen

#yesallwomen because apparently the clothes I wear is a more valid form of consent than the words I say

I repeat: the fact that there are male victims isn’t proof it’s not misogyny. It’s evidence that misogyny hurts men too. #YesAllWomen

The Power Of #YesAllWomen

Sorry, I couldn’t resist (I’m a girl so the language is a bit clumsy but I’m sorry this entire hashtag is so fucking stupid I can’t resist):

#YesAllMen because ‘I have a girlfriend’ is more effective than ‘I’m not interested’ - women respect other women more than a man’s right to say no.

Because men already rehearse “Take whatever you want don’t hurt me.” #YesAllMen (this is one particularly ridiculous because as a demographic men are roughly three times as likely to be murdered.)

#YesAllMen because every time I say I support men’s rights I have to explain that I don’t hate women.

Women’s greatest fear is that men will laugh at them, a man’s greatest fear is that they will be killed. (Again, twice as likely, here’s a source http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1635092 )

Because in every state, rapists whose victim is male has no say in whether the baby is kept, and is often charged with child support payments in addition to being raped. And that’s of course disregarding the social stigma against a grown man reporting being raped by any woman, leading to inflated female-to-male reported victimization which only enforces this trend.

#yesallmen because apparently the fact that men have an erection is a more valid form of consent than the words they say.

I repeat: The fact that there are female victims isn’t proof that male victimization must also be misogyny, any more than racism against Africans means that all racism is directed against Africans, and that Asians or Hispanics are just hurt by anti-African racism as well.

Aaanyway, my point wasn’t some stupid “blah blah men’s rights women’s rights blah blah hashtag activism,” it was how stupid it was to make teenage girl generalizations like this. Every month I swear to god internet activism sinks to a new level of juvenile idiocy. Whether it’s for men or for women. People being rude assholes to you is a people-being-rude-assholes issue, not a gendered issue.

I think a lot of people could learn from Steve Rogers. He’s an upstanding man who probably would hate to see what SJW’s are doing to people. In fact, he wouldn’t stand for it.

And I think a lot more people need to be like Steve. Not Captain America. But Steve Rogers.

TBH tumblr social justice and all the “angry gays” on tumblr make me hate being queer more than any homophobic comment, and dumb joke any thing someone who doesn’t really understand says.

I wish I were hetero so I could not be part of that group, not even close, I don’t want them fight for my rights or represent me.. it kinda makes me sick…

I know more feeling like that… ugh

I’m a lesbian who feels safer in a Southern Baptist chapel as the pastor preaches about gays ruining America than I do on the mostly pro-gay social blogging website Tumblr.

So basically, social justice bloggers (and most of the “anti sj” crowd as well) are once again reaffirmed to be in violation of Tumblr guidelines.

Really though, if everybody just started reporting the rabid SJs, anti-SJs, and the trolls on both sides indistinguishable from the sincere believers, I think Tumblr could calm down fairly rapidly. Instead of feeding the fires by starting flame wars and giant rants instead of just calmly clicking “report abuse.”

A lot of this blog is directly in violation of these guidelines, as well. I regret many phases of my life.

The vast array of Assorted Privileges (tm) that Tumblr throws around, and what it does with them, are comedy gold.

You have internet access, a personal computer, and leisure time. Probably live with your parents, too, statistically speaking (i.e. no bills or stuff.) I really don’t think you’re in a place to experience much personal oppression.

Tell me about the last time you were homeless and unemployed in an unfamiliar and high-crime city, then get back to lecturing me on my thin girl white privilege or whatever’s trendy this week. I tell you one thing, I was not doing much Tumblr whining and victimization when I was in that position. I was primarily concerned with being neither robbed nor killed nor raped, and trying to end my homelessness while I did that if I could. Sleep was a luxury. Whining about what some twelve year old said on her blog wasn’t even remotely on the table.

Tumblr is just a bunch of spoiled middle-class girls who are so unfamiliar with actual hardships that they’ve actually cooked up “being a middle-class girl” as a way to be oppressed. Do you know how many people in this world, even in America, would kill for the amount of privilege you have in your sheltered, pampered little life? Do you really want to walk up to a grey-haired homeless man in a wheelchair, fighting alcoholism and dementia and so forth, and tell him that it must be hard for someone in his position of privilege to see the oppressions faced by trust-fund sorority girls?

Honest question, but had Robin Thicke performed exactly the same song but been a black woman instead of a white man, would Tumblr have sang songs of adoration and sex-positivity?

I just feel like Tumblr only gets mad when things are done by white people. For instance, let’s look at rap, a predominately black genre (in popular spotlight artists, at least). Rape is frequently glorified, as well as hardcore drug use (we’re talking coke, meth, etc. here, not just a 420 blaze) and murder, but I’ve never seen a social justice blogger criticize a black rapper for the same. Perhaps they’re afraid of being criticized for racism, as if a black man had a right to rape a white woman?

For instance, B.I.G.’s [a black artist] song “Beef”:

Pretty explicit. “I will kidnap you, rape you, and kill you.” But somehow it was a mediocre vocalist saying “I can give you pleasurable sex if you say yes” that exemplifies rape.

I mean this was not hard. I literally googled “Rap song rape” and the second result was this song. A major artist with a major song. Honest question, do you think a significant percentage of SJ bloggers think that black men aren’t serious about rape (even though they commit rape at roughly 2-3 times the rate of white men as a demographic, if we’re really going to bring out-of-context and misleading statistics into this) or that they will be called racist for accusing a black man of rape culture? Or is Tumblr just so sheltered that many of the bloggers legitimately have zero experience with primarily low-income-targeted music such as rap, and are completely unaware that it even exists? I mean, for every time ‘Blurred Lines’ plays on the radio, I guarantee you five rap stations will play a song that says something along the lines of “I’m going to rape somebody / Rape is cool.”
