what the hell are you actually talking about other anon? They were showing how the stupid "non-existent racism against white people" claim was bogus. And let's be honest here, you bet when most people talk about sexism, they only acknowledge misogyny, right? and op is one such 'misandry ain't real' person?? And bunch of reblogs added "misandry too!!"?? so yes, relevant. But It's bashing feminism to prove generic assholes wrong? what's your problem lol. -- moderate feminist side-eyeing you hard

No, when most feminists talk about sexism, they either think it doesn’t exist towards men or that it doesn’t happen as much. Along with abuse and rape. Why? Well you can think the radicals in your movement for that. Saying that misandry isn’t institutionalized so it doesn’t exist (except it is institutionalized). That or the Duluth model which erases violence against men.
Honestly, like I’ve stated before, moderate feminists just let the radicals do their bad things and then get mad when people call out the fact the feminists in general are doing a disservice towards men.

Did I just fucking hear them say that one of her tests was to pull 105 lbs simulating an injured soldier out of a tank hatch? This is just insanely stupid because an injured soldier is going to be dead weight and by no means weighs 105 lbs plus the weight of their gear. Hey, why don’t we just cut corners and lower the requirements to a child’s ability while we’re at it? 

The average weight of a man in the United States is 189 lbs. A soldier’s body armor weighs 30 lbs and their load out is generally around 87 to 127 lbs. Well you might say to just leave the gear behind but you can’t just do that. Try telling your squad leader you left another soldier’s shit behind because you were too weak to carry it. I’m sure they’ll totally understand. 

Doesn’t anybody remember the lies they told about Jessica Lynch being a fucking hero when she wasn’t just so they could paint her up like G.I. Jane? She didn’t even fire one round. Female recruits in the Marines can’t even do 3 pull-ups and they’re lowering the standards for what, some false sense of equality?

Upside-Down Ads Reveal The Subtlety Of Depression

Singapore-based suicide prevention organisation Samaritans of Singapore recently ran a series of ads which cleverly uses ambigrams to highlight the difficulty in understanding and identifying depression. The print ads feature images showing a positive message.

However, when the ad is inverted, a sadder, more depressing message is revealed.

The advertisement’s tagline “The signs are there if you read them” is printed upside-down so that readers will know to flip the ads over.

It also reinforces the message that it is easy to miss the warning signs of depression.

[via]

These are some very clever ads.

you know what bums me out? people not examining past transphobic behavior when they’re called out.

This anon never specified when he was transphobic; all they said was “go to hell” as if that even helps anything at all.

instead of defending yourself so quickly,

Why should somebody not defend themselves against something like this? Look, if you wanna criticize the dude, that’s one thing, but simply sending him messages that make him feel bad for the sake of making him feel bad, is FUCKED UP.

think about how you’ve been hurting marginalized groups,

Give an example.

what you can do to stop problematic behavior,

Give an example.

and how you can help. thanks

Give an example as to how he’s done wrong.

And before you say it, no, I DON’T think John’s some perfect human being. I believe I know the circumstances you are referring to, when he’s supposedly said things that could be hurtful (and mind you, if they’re what I think, I really don’t agree), but the thing is, I have no fucking clue what you’re referring to because, guess what, you never gave an example.

You want to call people out? Be constructive, and informative. Don’t be snotty and passive aggressive. Thanks.

i’m not required to cater to cishet white men on the internet. i absolutely refuse to be the perfect trans person who tells you about my struggles with a smile. john green prides himself on being educated, so i’m sure he can spare a day reading up on trans issues.

Oh, it’s certainly true that you are not in any way at all required to explain your past, history, or personal struggles to anyone. That is very much your prerogative.

However, context and detail are very important parts of communication. If you’re going to accuse another person of maligning a marginalised group - and you very much have here - then the onus is on you to explain the context. It would be patently ridiculous, and in fact incredibly transphobic, for a cisgender person to simply assume they understood the nuance and detail of what entails any specific case of transphobia. If you want people to take your criticisms seriously, then, you have to be prepared to back them up.

It’s not as if you’re being asked to somehow disadvantage yourself here; you are the authority on this subject matter, accorded by having put forwards the claim that a person has done something transphobic. Thus, as the only one who has spotted this, it becomes your responsibility to inform people of the specifics.

Because otherwise this simply becomes he-said-she-said, where one side says “That’s transphobic and I don’t have to explain why!” and the other side says “No it’s not” and nothing gets accomplished. You can’t expect people to change behaviour that they’re unaware requires changing, and a vague accusation of “You did something wrong!” gives absolutely zero contextual or specific information regarding what, exactly, was wrong.

It might seem obvious to you (I’m quite certain it does), but then, you have the background and the understanding of trans* issues that comes from being immersed in them as a part of your everyday life. Cis people? Don’t.

It sucks having to explain something that seems clear as day, I know, it’s incredibly frustrating; but if you aren’t willing to, then you’re going to make absolutely zero progress. In fact, quite counter to that, you end up making everyone else you’re trying to represent look bad. Whether you want it to or not, speaking up about discrimination places you in the role of a supposed authority on the topic, and as an authority figure there are inherent expectations to your behaviour. If you face those expectations with a cry of “FUCK YOU GUYS I DON’T OWE YOU SHIT!” and a steadfast refusal to engage in any further communication, everyone else looking on will assume you’re a petulant child with no actual understanding of the situation at hand, and as a perceived authority figure that perception will extend to everyone else under that group.

It sucks, it’s unfair, the world is a terrible place; suck it up. You voiced your opinion, so you have to see it through. If you can’t do that, feel free to sit down and let more mature people take the spotlight, but don’t think you can get away with acting like a whiny, entitled brat in a public space when engaging actual, relevant social issues as a discussion topic.

-Pete

you know what is actually being entitled?

Acting like your own views and experiences are so self-evident across the spectrum of humanity that it’s sheer willful ignorance to imagine that anybody could ever possibly not be exactly like you or immediately assume everything you say is correct without question?

expecting to constantly be educated by others.

Oh, you mean the entire basis for the concept of ‘education’. I mean, there’s this thing called ‘teacher-student relations’ - it’s not necessarily exclusive to educational institutions (shocking I know) - wherein a person with a greater professed understanding of a topic is generally expected to explain said topic if they want to hold claim to the authority derived from experience, as you seem to insist on doing.

nobody ever educated me about anything

Colour me surprised. I do feel sorry for your parents and teachers, then.

and i had to learn about these issues by myself. if i get called out i go out and learn about the issue instead of expecting those around me to patiently explain to me.

So you’re a self-professed expert autodidact. I somehow doubt this, as your assumptions of accuracy are purely coming from yourself, especially so given that actual autodidacts tend to understand that other people are not in fact capable of doing the same.

More likely you’ve just come to a preconceived conclusion regarding specific topics then selected information that you sourced yourself which corroborated your already-decided answers and assumed that this makes you an authority on the topic. Fun fact: It doesn’t.

but i’m totally the whiny, entitled brat for being angry about transphobia and cis people expecting full explanations for why they’re being transphobic at the drop of a hat.

No, you’re the whiny, entitled brat for having the sheer temerity to throw accusations of gross bigotry towards others then staunchly refuse to actually explain or in any way justify your claims.

You are the person who comes into stores demanding 50% off your purchases because “I saw an ad!”.

You are the person who is demanding that everybody else acquiesce to your personal viewpoint without regard for justification or reasoning.

You, in fact, are acting like a spoiled and uneducated child. You are behaving in a petulant and, yes, incredibly entitled manner by insisting that you alone amongst all the world need not support your claims in any way. That it is not, in fact, your responsibility to back up what you say. You are standing up and making proclamations against others’ character, then demanding that they prove you wrong if they disagree. Except that you accept no standard of proof beyond your own opinion, and any contradictory points are automatically rejected.

You are willfully ignorant, you are selfish, and quite frankly I can understand why nobody would take what you say seriously. You’ve been asked, politely in the first instance, to show the basis for your beliefs. You have refused and claimed the expectation that you should have reason for your beliefs is somehow self-evident as proof of your stance. You have been asked again, with explanations as to why this is necessary, and you have yet again refused in a childish and insulting manner.

And so your opinion, in short, isn’t worth shit. Back it up if you can, but at this point I’d be genuinely surprised if you have any basis for this other than a personal distaste for the author in question and a desire to undermine his works. Am I wrong? Show me why. Please, go ahead. But I’m sure both I, and everyone else reading, already have a solid expectation that you will simply come back to this with yet more unsubstantiated whining.

Get the fuck over yourself.

-Pete

you told me i responded to you in a childish and insulting manner, but then called me bratty, whiny, and entitled, which sure seems to me to be responding in a childish and insulting manner. i also have to be extremely explicit, so i will clarify that i was never educated by other people on social justice issues. i worked very hard to educate myself and still do to this day. i see no reason why fully grown men cannot do the same.

i have also recently answered an ask on the subject of john green’s transphobia.

So let’s look into this, shall we? I went through to your other ask, and found that you’d linked to someone else’s post that apparently includes an explanation of why you think John Green is transphobic.

In that post there was, out of several points, one section relating to supposed transphobia with multiple linked sources.

Of those linked sources, only ONE actually contained any text from John Green. The rest of them linked to the same blog at different times making claims that John Green is transphobic without citing any sources themselves. That’s not how ‘sources’ work, just as a quick F.Y.I. for future reference; someone else agreeing with you isn’t actually proof that a third party did something objectionable.

But, hey, there actually was one single source that can be reliably attributed to John Green. I am impressed. It’s scant and negligible for the extent to which you seem to be claiming this is supported, but ok, let’s examine it.

Apparently, John Green defended someone who was receiving death threats and had her personal information datamined.

As this is the only citation referencing back to anything John Green has actually said, rather than simply making the claim that other people’s unsubstantiated assertions are proof that your own unsubstantiated assertions are therefore factually supported, this is the only part that can actually be assessed as transphobic or not.

And the line that has all of these people up in arms? The very essence of Mr. Green’s supposed rampant transphobia, bigotry, and apparent desire to subjugate an entire minority group for their gender identity?

I am pissed off because Laci Green, one of the most promising young content creators on YouTube, has been forced off the Internet by death threats—apparently driven by her casual use of the word “tranny” in a video she made more than three years ago. (She apologized and even took down the video.)

The pertinent part of that paragraph being

fishingboatproceeds:

There is so much of this stuff in my ask box, and most of it not even anonymous, but I don’t want to call out any particular user because I know they’ll then get a lot of hateful asks and the cycle will just continue.

First off, there’s a comma splice in your ask. I just have to let you know that, on account of how I’m a pretentious prick.

I hope that I’m not transphobic. I’ve been public and vocal in my support for the rights of trans people for years, and I’ve tried over the years to amplify trans voices rather than pretending to be able to speak for them. 

Look, I am a person, and I am not a particularly good one. I am screwed up and make a lot of mistakes. But I am not a piece of trash. I would imagine that you are also screwed up and make a lot of mistakes, but you aren’t a piece of trash either.

But it is still hurtful—very hurtful—to hear people call me a piece of trash. It just makes me sad to hear, the way I think it would make most people sad to hear. The certainty and lack of nuance in that characterization reflects a broader lack of nuance in online discourse these days that just bums me out. 

her casual use of the word “tranny” in a video she made

Oh. Oh, it’s a direct quote. As in, he’s quoting something someone else said as important context. As in, this is not, in fact, something John Green himself said.

Do you understand how quotations work? That they’re necessarily attributed to the original source rather than the person quoting them?

Hence that this supposed ‘transphobia’ you are railing about is not actually in any way indicative of John Green’s beliefs or opinions?

Incidentally, pointing out that someone is acting like a child is hardly childish in and of itself. Though hey, well done on actually kind of almost answering the original point in a separate ask almost 24 hours later. Which I had to dig up myself and sort through in order to even find the source you were purporting was the origin of your argument - I am, of course, giving you the benefit of the doubt here; I’d hate to think an accomplished autodidact as yourself who clearly strenuously educates themself on social issues would have leapt to an erroneous conclusion out of some half-assed research and a complete lack of comprehension regarding literary standards for reporting on direct quotation within text.

In short, you’ve provided the source for your claim (finally, in a ridiculously roundabout manner) and it can clearly be seen to not support you.

You are wrong. Congratulations. Perhaps your vaunted self-education needs something of a thorough re-examining.

Or maybe you should just accept you don’t know as much as you think you do, you aren’t as smart as you claim to be, and in future try not to expose your cognitive deficiencies in public.

fucknointernetignorance:

I’m going to do a full, complete fucking debunk of anything that has to do with John Green as it is presented to me. This is going to be the first stop on what’ll probably be a long journey.

So, without further ado.

strawberreli:

I guess it’s kind of difficult to figure out how my tags work (hint: strawberreli.tumblr.com/tagged/John+Green)

but I digress.

Explain. How was a Muslim character written in an annoying fashion, racism? Also, using a word from another language isn’t racism.

Deleted link.

John Green has stated many times that the point of his book is to DEBUNK manic pixie girl.

Also, anything by Anita is garbage, but still.

Another also, how is a girl teaching a guy how to loosen up, fucking sexist? I still don’t get that.

  • He’s racist. (If someone could get me links to his fat-shaming, I’ll include that here.)

Deleted link, also, in his “fat shaming”, all he did was call himself fat and said he needed to lose weight. That ain’t fat shamng.

He’s problematic for trying to help but having privilege? Wow. This is fucking hilarious. Dude, BECAUSE he has privilege, he SHOULD be trying to do what he’s doing! Good lord.

An anon ask proof does not make. Annnnd another deleted link.

This is the only time where I can kiiiinda agree but at the same time I don’t consider this sexism so much as ignorance at the time. Mind you; this was back in 2009, and I know he’s become more educated in recent years.

But. On the chance this is still how he looks at things, regarding girls that aren’t nerds, I’d say that’s shallow and yeah, a little sexist.

Also, simply saying nerd girls are cooler for x reason doesn’t seem sexist to me, though. But hey, maybe I’m wrong on this one.

So?

  •  [x]

So he expressed an opinion, he NEVER SAID “YOU MUST HEED ME FOR I AM A WHITE MAN!!!” unlike what you seem to think.

I completely agree with him in this. Hahaha.

He makes an EXCELLENT point here AND ALSO SAYS HE DISAGREES WITH LACI! He’s simply defending the fact she’s getting DEATH THREATS.

This is another one of those things where basically you say “HE’S RIGHT BUT THAT’S BAD BECAUSE PRIVILEGE” wow.

HE WAS QUOTING HER.

How is that a flimsy defense?

Sigh. I’ll do that one later.

That’s about it. Also all I have the energy to gather for yr grey face

You have piss poor “proof” and ae ultimately calling the guy and ass because he’s a white male who happens to get attention and doesn’t think death threats are okay.

Save your energy, and get a hobby.

I don't really understand all the hate John Green is getting. Is it just from the "cigarette is a metaphor" thing? Or is it just backlash of someone getting a bit more famous because of the movie?

disneyvillainsforjustice:

the hate is because of a highly pretentious line, that is almost completely unnecessary, and honestly the silliest thing I have ever read :D but i love all the memes popping up everywhere! they are really creative!!!

~Madam Mim

I read somewhere that the line was supposed to be over-the-top pretentious. There was even an excerpt from the book provided in which the character who’s POV the book is from talks about how ridiculously pretentious this person is (something about how they probably can’t take a shit without pondering the deeper, cosmic meanings of it). It was actually kind of funny, and if I were able to find the post I would link to it.

On a side note, I agree with Mim; there are some absolutely hilarious memes out there about it.

You know how SJW are always bitching about Cultural appropriation being violent and harmful. Is there any science out there to back this up? I've looked and found nothing.

Cultural appropriation can indeed be harmful, especially when it bastardize a highly religious/spiritual thing, but it really depends from person to person, just like some people are offended by “African-American” some people could care less, but the only ways its truly harmful to a culture is if people really encroach upon it and end up used to oppress those people
