one thing I don’t think people realize is that in arguments about human rights, it’s not about trying to persuade the other party. it’s not about them at all. they’ve already made up their mind.

it’s about persuading the audience.

if I call out my teacher on being homophobic I’m not trying to change his opinion. I’m trying to convince any closeted kids in the room that they’re not the monsters he’s made them out to be.

if I argue with my aunt about how racist she’s being it’s not because I expect to change her mind. it’s because I’m hoping to god my cousin’s kids hear and learn that maybe skin color doesn’t mean what she says it means.

people will try to hush you and say “they’re not going to change their minds, don’t bother” but it’s not about them. it was never about them.

also, its possible to plant one of the seeds that changes someones mind way later

theasexualityblog:

Active libido doesn’t negate asexuality. Pass it on. 

You can be asexual and masturbate. Pass it on.

You can be asexual and have/enjoy sex. Pass it on. 

Asexuality means you don’t experience sexual attraction. Pass it on.

Seriously, reblog the crap out of this because there is someone gatekeeping asexuality and upsetting aces who do have libido/masturbate/have sex.

"I don't support it in real life"

antielricest:

Then stop normalizing it
Then stop romanticizing it
Then stop pretending it’s “hot”
Then stop pretending it’s “cute”

will you ever understand that fiction is NOT reality

umm?? hunty we all know that. but when me, (a abuse victim to many things, such as being raped as a child and abuse) see’s somebody being like “Oh!!!11111!!! this ship is sooooo~ cute! who cares if they hate eachother?? and they also abuse eachother?? lol XDDDD” and when someone calls them out, they go “but its not real!!!!1!!” the scene from 13 reasons why where the girl slits her wrists isnt real, but it still can hurt many people. in fact, it can cause panic attacks, flashbacks, immense trauma and discomfort. do you want to be the cause of one of those things? no? then step the fuck up and stop shipping abusive and pedophilic ships. what you are doing is NOT okay. i repeat, NOT okay. love ya!~

I’ve been sexually abused MANY times as well (the first time when I was 10), but it doesn’t mean other people have to take care of my trauma and stop enjoying stuff just because it makes me uncomfortable (and, believe me, there a lot of things that triggers me. a lot).
and also I don’t have to describe in detail my traumas to be taken seriously, because a) I don’t have to, it hurts me and it’s shitty af to pretend it. actually, it’s DISGUSTING to force people to do it so that you can give them the permission to do something or so that you give actual weight to their words lmao b) my sexual abuse(s) doesn’t make my statements automatically more valid.

I know it may be shocking to you, but you have AGENCY. You can decide what to see and what not! You can blacklist things and block users! You CAN AVOID what makes you uncomfortable if you REALLY want it. But y'all prefer going through the tags of things you hate and visiting the blogs that post things you hate and then complaining because they triggered you lol

Don’t like, don’t read/watch/see. It’s that simple.

1) Like, I see this type of discussions and I have flashbacks of when I was a teen, freshly abused, and TRIGGER WARNINGS DIDN’T EXIST. Tagging on the fandom was a mess, everything was exposed, people had no concept of “does it count as rape”, most fandom production of homosexual orientation was with rape romanticized in it. I loathed that stuff. Noncon and dubcon still triggers me.

I’m also aware it is FICTION. And I WAS THEN. I had friends jerking off to stuff that made me puke at the time (before therapy), should have I judge them? Maybe they would have found offence in the porn I liked (eg cishet women frienda dn me liking wlw porn). It’s fiction, it’s meant for shipping or for funny lower floor moments, let’s not pretend it’s high literature we read to send our spirits through Kantian Metaphysical reflections. Or activism. PLS.

You have TRIGGER WARNINGS and LABELS now. I promise you if I survived over a decade scrolling an internet where my trauma and triggers were everywhere, y’all can find the mental strength to download tumblr savior. IT’S A TOOL FOR SURVIVORS AND PRETENDING IT IS NOT AN OPTION HURTS SURVIVORS WHO MAY NEED IT.

2) The psychology and sexology ignorance is strong in this one.

Do you know between which groups are rape fantasies and the consumption of rape porn more common? Women. Secondly? Bottom gay men. 

It’s a passive fantasy of lack of control, dude. Not my cup of tea, but if y’all need to pretend it’s produced by horrible predators for other predators or that it’s an “active” fantasy, you may need to check some text books about this shit. Like, just saying. Funny thing, the same groups seem to enjoy gang bang porn which instead result rarely liked by the active counter part.

Another fun fact, you know which categories of women are more driven towards these rape fantasies?

  • RAPE VICTIMS, who try to cope with their fucking trauma in fucking peace without your judgement 
  • ABUSIVE HOUSEHOLD VICTIMS, who had extremely puritan, emotionally distant and sexually repressive parents that made the teens feel guilty about their rising sexual urges to the point people watch it to “not feel guilty about wanting it”.

So, yeah, you are shitting on abuse victims. Just fiy.

2b) Kinks are not formed from the moral compass. Kinks tell us about way different things like re-elaboration of childhood experiences, relationships with parents and peers and issues with one selves. 

Kink-shaming is useless (and puerile and puritan) because kinks are not dependent on our will, on our judgment or things one would approve or not approve of irl or outside the bedroom or without consent. A rapist can enjoy the most missionary sex and porn (mine didn’t even watch porn ^_^ he thought it was dirty) and some of the most bad-wrong shippers I know are also the first to fight for women and gay rights and the importance of consent. Kinks are not our rational part and we do ACT based on the rational part irl (or if depending on kinks we do ask for consent and make sure we have it).

Asking people to stop enjoying a kink in fiction is more or less the correspondant of saying someone to stop enjoying chocolate icecream.

A person can eat chocolate ice cream all they want, they can share it with someone who also enjoys it and like it. The important is they don’t force someone who dislikes or is allergic to chocolate or icecream to be in contact with it.

And guess what!!! Shippers don’t force you!!! We tag stuff!!! You can blacklist it!!!! And a communty side (icecream shop) has all the right to have ALL the tastes. You are the one with the agency not to order or consume something you don’t like or are allergic to.

3) “it still can hurt many people. in fact, it can cause panic attacks, flashbacks, immense trauma and discomfort. “

ANNNNND another funny example of using the DISCOMFORT as any kind of argumentation. Arguments have to be rational, otherwise, you sound like a shrieking Amish who just witnessed the telephone and called it witchcraft.

  • If you know a show has a topic that could trigger you, don’t watch it. Dot. You can live without 13rw. Fiction caters to tastes in themes and styles and communicates often with different target audiences, it’s not supposed to be for everyone. LOTR is not obscene or morally grey but you wouldn’t read it to a 3 years old. If at 12 yo you grab Montalbàn or Miller and read the most lewd sex scene, this doesn’t mean the authors were evilllll, it means you are not ready for reading that or have not a taste for it.
  • If your trigger panic attacks are particularly strong, the solution is not solely to avoid the triggering material; if they are that bad you need medical controls with a therapist. They exist to help. Tumblr exists for fun. Don’t confuse the two. Please, do not deny yourself professional help just because you are on a purity crusade.
  • “it can provoke panic attacks or discomfort” is not immediately a reason for something being bad. A bitch in my class said “gay people made her puke” (and it did) multiple times, that seeing gays kissing was to her “discomfort” and made her feel bad and “offended”. Just because you’re offended by something doesn’t mean it’s bad. And if IT IS bad, then find a better argumentation point than “it can trigger people”. IRL pedopornograph/a is not bad because it’s “offensive” to the watcher BUT it is because exploits children and they get raped for it. It’s about irl children who get hurt not about someone not being able to close a fucking window on the internet where the thing is not happening to them.

4)  I am a bit amazed to how a big chunk of this site does not seem to have had a normal and healthy development out of their early childhood self-centrism, which says a lot about your educational system or repressive households, but given I am not into victim blaming, since you all seem to lack this information you should have got at 5/6, I’ll give you a resume:

  • The world does not revolve around you. There are many different people, who may disagree with you even while still being good people;
  • Not all toys are your toys. Just because you don’t like something doesn’t mean it sucks and you shouldn’t break it just because it’s not yours or not as you want it to be.
  • Art psychology and Psychological approach to the arts is a serious matter for which there are university courses and people study to be prepared for it. You are formally invited to stop pretending to have a preparation in a branch of studies you clearly have no preparation whatsoever in. 

There are FOUR YEARS OLD MORE MATURE ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE REALITY FICTION THAN YOU ALL. It’s embarrassing, educationally speaking.

@notconfusedanymore I’m sorry you seem to keep dealing with shit heads :( *hugs* You don’t need to give details of your trauma to these idiots.

anyway I suppose the next time I see pseudo-political discourse I should go on op’s blog and see whether they’re a teen before replying. If they are or don’t state their age, then I can ignore whatever they said lol

20:51

tumblr political discourse is 398590405984309840598 times cringier than the superwholock, homestuck, steven universe, hamilton and undertale fandoms combined and I want all of those things back in exchange for “you can’t headcanon this female character as ace because that’s homophobic” and all that other trash i see kids on here spew. i don’t want it, delete it, just give us back the teens having harmless fun with harmless shows

why is white supposed to be a ‘pure’ color? you know what’s white? crack cocaine. you know what else is white? 230+ years of systematic oppression 

i lost like 8 followers because of this lol bye

I gotta reblog every time I see it lol.

You know what’s not white? Non-albino humans. And even that is not all forms of albinism.

White symbolism has nothing to do with race, it is associated with purity, spirituality, and sometimes death in many cultures across Europe (and derivatives), Asia, and Africa. In other words, it was not white people who came up with that in the first place (actually, in Western tradition it was reinforced by Catholic Church, which got the idea from Rome, and as we all at least should know Ancient Rome was inhabited by people who wouldn’t be considered white if judged according to the modern American standards)

Ancient Egyptians did consider white the colour of purity and spirituality. That’s one of the oldest cultures in the world. The association is much older than our modern, race-based wank.

Btw, speaking of Ancient Egyptians, black also had good associations in their culture, most likely due to how the fertile muds of Nile were this colour it was connected to the meanings of regeneration and life.

So yeah, white=pure is more widespread than black=evil. The latter is often associated with night, unknown, age/maturity, and/or death. Even in Western cultures (and cinematography) the black-evil association is not that clear (or absolute), it is also associated with elegance and power.

@tenitchyfingers, you’d like this.

“you know what else is white? 230+ years of systematic oppression”

hey i need you to open a history book and read up on the Armenian genocide, the rape of Nanjing, the oppression of Japan’s native Ainu population by the people we currently call “Japanese”, the genocide in Rwanda (perpetrated by black people against other black people and yes, it was genocide), the Barbary slave trade (and by the way, African people enslaved other African people too, and did so way before the more famous slave trade was even a thing) and the Mongolian occupation of Asia, which was an empire way bigger than the Roman empire, and a lot more oppressive considering Romans didn’t wipe out the cultures in the lands they ended up owning, they integrated them in the Roman system instead. Oh, and who’s oppressing the population of North Korea? Their own president, who’s also North Korean. Same for Maduro. Same for Erdogan in Turkey. So like, go fuck yourself and read a fucking book.

THIS is what everyone is so pissed about??? lmao!!! i love it!!!

You do know this is transphobic ect. ?

you do know this is making fun of dumbasses who witch hunt radical feminists and say we kill 50,000 transwomen every day with no sources etc. ?

Did you know that radfems get rape threats regurlary!! how many people tell them to die and how they should get hurt?

lol I love how the book says “human biology” because if you look into actual biology from updated books and if you talk to actual biologists, they’ll all reject your notion that sex and gender are binaries, but have fun with your cognitive dissonance, malevolence and willful ignorance!

Points of interest: unproportional number of victims died in Italy. I do not have an explanation for this. @tenitchyfingers?
Also, surprising number of victims had origins in Latin America, many were homeless and/sex workers.
The alarming thing is that the number and frequency of murders seem to be on the rise.

This is a topic I admittedly don’t know much about. I suppose it’s extreme machismo and transphobia, gay panics, a lack of legislation to protect LGBT people specifically… idk, @robb-greyjoy, would you feel like taking over?

I’m tired of seeing “exclusionists” constantly coddling asexies and adding that “but of course aces are still valid and are discriminated against uwu” shit to their otherwise good posts and even ‘calling out’ those who don’t because that’s Problematic. ace identity is not valid or important (unless it literally means attracted to no one ever and not dating or having sex with anyone but even then, pick a new label because this one is unsalvageable), all ace rethoric is stupid, having low libido or a complicated relationship to sex is not an orientation or a modifier to it, “ace lesbian” or “aro gay” is split attraction model and stupid and unnecessary, I hate all aces, shut up.

“I hate all aces” finally someone admitting it.
