officers, i’m afraid you can’t arrest me for murder. when i murdered that guy, i was only doing it to highlight how ridiculous and wrong is to murder someone. it was actually quite anti-murder if you think about it. i understand how you might make that mistake, but next time i hope you don’t take my actions out of context :^)
ANTI-SJS BE LIKEEEEEEEEEEE
like if you love robots, reply if you love robots, reblog if you love robots, ignore if you are former president george w. bush
george w. bush stares in confusion and horror at his tumblr dashboard. his hand trembles over the reblog button. behind him, thousands of figurines line the walls. gundams, evas, wall-e, c-3po. r2d2 stares at him expectantly.
which part of his identity will he deny
What men don’t understand is that women are FIERCELY PROTECTIVE of underage girls because we remember when we were young and some adult man made us uncomfortable or manipulated us or was inappropriate with us and we were powerless.
… except not all of us are, because of internalized misogyny
… and also because if we hold underage girls responsible for what adult men do to them then we can argue that we were also responsible for what adult men did to us when we were underage, which means we were not and are not victims, oh no, we weren’t powerless, we were in control swear to god
let’s not forget how hard it is for a lot of women to admit that what men have done to them wasn’t okay
I agree with the Sibyl up there (although I do feel fiercely protective of girls, personally) and I’ll toss in my usual bit about how it’s so fucking convenient that somehow we have developed this idea that being a victim is bad and a moral failing, and how we now use the word in place of other words, such as “whiny,” “lazy,” or “incompetent.” Gosh, isn’t it so fucking convenient that one of the most powerful words we had to describe exactly what people with more power do to people with less power has been manipulated and twisted into a nasty name. Isn’t it so fucking convenient that now we have to have been “strong” through our abuse (or our disability, or our systemic oppression, etc.), and always be “rising above” it or “recovering from” it, rather than being allowed to admit that it has hurt us and is still hurting us and that maybe we’re not sure what to do about that. We can’t simply be injured, and we’re not allowed to be truly helpless, because that’s “being a victim,” which apparently is now a moral position rather than a position which deserves kindness and empathy. If you’re “just being a victim,” apparently you retroactively deserve whatever the fuck happened to you in the first place.
It’s almost like language is manipulated by oppressors to make sure that marginalized people have no language with which to name the crimes that have been perpetrated against them! Well I’ll be damned!
Remember kids, a “victim” is someone who has been victimised! And by definition, someone had to do that to the victim!
i unironically believe that the only thing you should need to do to access medical or legal transition is ask.
oppressors paint famous radicals as soft pacifists because they know quiet rebellion (read: quiet acceptance of the system) won’t get us anywhere. if you manage to convince someone that their hero was peaceful and kind even in the face of oppression, you manage to squash rebellion before it can rise up.
