Tell me what to say and I will say it to you.

 

I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express. - Randall Munroe, XKCD

3 Modern Satirists Screwed by People Who Didn’t Get the Joke

#3. Stephen Colbert Gets Attacked by a Hashtag Activist Who’s Wrong About Everything
In [an interview, Suey Park] describes how she “saw the hashtag as a way to critique white liberals who use forms of racial humor to mock more blatant forms of racism.” I read the interview several times, reading all the poorly chosen, unconvincing words. And maybe I’m wrong, but, quite simply, despite the loads of verbiage, I’m pretty sure Park simply feels that there are certain no-no words, bad words that can never be used to prove any point or be justified by any context.
I reject that out of hand, as should anyone with an active mind. Park’s lack of faith is not with Colbert, of whom she claims to be a fan, but the rest of society. She does not believe people can hear uncomfortable or provocative jokes in any context that would justify their use without adding fuel to the fire of racism.

I was just on your blog and like a week ago someone said you're anti-sj. if you're anti-sj, what are you pro? (this is a legitimate question).

Anti-sj is kind of a term that sounds more extreme than it is and probably also doesn’t cover what most anti-sj blogs or people that agree with it are about. 

We’re not anti social justice, or against help and equality or anything like that. We’re anti the aggressive counterproductive “pseudo helping” attitude that sometimes runs rampant on tumblr under the guise of social justice. It just became kind of easy to call the people against that anti-sj and most blogs ran with it.

So for the record, I’m not against social justice itself, I’m against the toxic and stupid tumblr brand. Let’s see if I can find a few examples real quick.

Or that time that people running a blog all about how white people food is shit and stupid accidentally made fun of asian food on there and quickly apologized because you can’t insult asian food it was only garbage if it was white.

Or that time death treats were sent towards a innocent tumblr blogger who posted a photo of herself in a kimono because she was “culturally appropriating” despite if being a gift from her host family abroad.

Or that time that there was a news report about the death of a white 9 year old boy over racial bullying and people responded with “cry more white tears”

Or every single time when someone claims to be offended and it’s used as a excuse to bully or threaten everyone who opposes them. And then saying that you are silencing and tone policing if people object to hostile bullying behavior. 

Or absolutely annihilating anyone over something offensive they’ve said in the past and deeming people problematic and trash because god nobody ever makes a mistake or says something wrong ever in their lives, right?

Basically the toxic attitude that isn’t helping anyone and has driven people away from good causes. No room for debate, questioning things isn’t allowed. Hiding behind social justice as a shield of immunity in general and abusing that. Seeking problems behind everything and using it as an excuse for abuse, aggression, restricting and bullying.

That is what I am against.

new video babes!  i went to the woods to confess to one of my biggest sexual secrets: i used to fake orgasm.  FOR 6 FREAKING YEARS.  let’s talk about:

✔ faking orgasm
✔ why people do it
✔ why you probably shouldn’t

(NEW SEX+: FAKING ORGASM…)

This is sex positive feminism. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. 

?????  how da fuq does “hey communication is great and you deserve pleasure” translate to “damned if you do damned if you don’t”?  talk about acrobatics of logic.

tbh im getting sick of feminists on tumblr willfully distorting the only movement fighting for healthy sexuality.  we get enough of that shit from the mainstream/basically everyone

i don’t like talking with people about emotional stuff because then they learn things about me and get to know me and can defeat me
