I almost cried when I saw this part. This is what you do. You don’t continue on your way because it doesn’t involve you.
Look at the way she shields the stranger WITH HER OWN BODY.
This is what needs to happen when you see someone being bullied or harassed.
I just completely bawled watching the video and her reaction. Goddamn.
Priceless- a must watch for everyone
I feel really uneasy about this idea that anyone that is LGBT has to identify as a feminist because they should be allies in everything, because the two movements have a nasty history with one another.
Like, the whole idea that gay men are inherently misogynistic and that trans folk are either a) betraying their gender because of internalised misogyny or b) trying to hijack feminist spaces all spawned from feminist theory.
That’s not even mentioning; political lesbianism, continued hijacking the term homophobia to make it into something about straight women is mainly from feminists (thereby absolving women of it full stop), gay activists being beaten by feminists in Canada, feminist anti-porn activists cutting off resources for LGBT teens, everything about TERFs in general and even the term bihet is frequently used by radical feminists (used to attack bisexuals in opposite sex relationships using feminist theory).
And even ex members of feminist groups that have talked about the way certain members act towards LGBT folk behind closed doors (it basically amounts to them not actually caring and how the LGBT cause is convenient and popular).
LGBT people have to deal with radical queers bullshit all the time and you can see plenty of LGBT people dealing with that head on, so why can’t feminists do the same thing with the radical feminists that do this sort of thing?
I know it’s not the majority but, there’s more than enough history here to make people feel uneasy about identifying themselves that way. I know there are plenty of people who want to be more inclusive of LGBT issues but y’know just slapping together a slogan via photoshop and not attacking the problem head-on doesn’t really achieve all that much.
I’ve tried bringing this to create a dialogue about these issues but I was just verbally attacked (twice, one IRL & once online). I’d like us to all get along but, I’m actually scared of having to deal with that again.
HOW IN THE FUCK IS THIS AN UNPOPULAR OPINION
THIS IS EXACTLY WHY IT BLOWS MY MIND WHEN I SEE GAY BI OR TRANS MEN AND WOMEN DEFENDING FEMINISM.
Most people don’t romanticize the past for its general lack of civil rights or for some desire to call people “coloreds” or something, most of them want to see cool cars and clothes and etc so how about you dismount the ten foot pole of indignation that you’ve so obviously crammed up your ass
holy fuck you are all whiners
While babysitting my 9 year old little sister last night she asked me about “that swimming show” I watch all the time, so I quickly pulled up my RAWs and decided to show her Episode 7 just for kicks.
She cannot read nor understand a lick of Japanese, so these reactions are totally on the spot, right off the top of her precious little head.
I think her favorite character is Fish Master.
OH MY FUCKING GOD. Getting angry or frustrated or sad anytime you see a certain word/phrase/post, etc., is not what being “triggered” means. If that were the case, EVERY SINGLE MINUTE I SPEND ON TUMBLR, I’M SPENDING BEING TRIGGERED. Which is flat out stupid beyond belief. If EVERYTHING is a trigger for you - if getting mildly upset at something is a definition of “trigger” for you, how in the ever-living fuck do you survive in the real world? Seriously. Holy shit.
This really pisses me off, because I was legitimately triggered just a few days ago, and it is an absolutely terrible experience. I was pretty much sucked back in time to one of the worst moments of my life, and the memory of it was enough to make me suicidal for a time. I completely lost my fucking head. I couldn’t breathe. I was weeping uncontrollably. All I could think about was, “How can I make this stop?”
Being triggered isn’t being mildly annoyed or frustrated or even just a little sad. Being triggered isn’t, “I don’t like this, so I am going to rant about it, then continue on with my day normally.”
Being triggered is fucking awful, and it’s something you need to work on throughout your life. I’ve managed to cope with a lot of my triggers. I’m still anxious and a little paranoid. Certain jokes still make me uncomfortable. I’m wary around strangers, and I don’t like going out alone. But y’know what? I’m working on all of that, because I have to be able to function in the real world, and I refuse to let what happened to me turn me into a fear-mongering victim. The world isn’t going to coddle me. The world is harsh, the world is cruel, and the world isn’t a safe space wrapped in trigger warnings—nor should it be.
Having a trigger—or multiple—is a struggle. A trigger is not something you want to have, but the users of tumblr are desperate to possess as many as they possibly can. They invalidate those of us who have been abused, who have seen the horrors of the world, who have been hurt and beaten and trod upon, and they appropriate our struggle for themselves. They invalidate war veterans. They invalidate rape survivors. They invalidate victims of abuse.
But, hey, when has tumblr ever actually cared about us, right? As long as they’re ahead in the Oppression Olympics, they don’t give even a fraction of a fuck about the people whose pain and suffering they’re invalidating.
Fuck off, OP.
THE GOLDEN RULE OF TUMBLR
