[puts on eye goggles, walks behind glass shield] what's something that falls under your definition of actually mean, seebs?

the-real-seebs:

A couple of distinctions are at issue. First, I think that mere lack of empathy or consideration counts for less than genuine awareness. If you aren’t thinking of people as people, that’s maybe-bad, but it also means you’re not really being as cruel as it might seem. If you carefully and systematically crush an opponent in a video game, but it’s an AI that has no emotional state, it’s not the same thing as doing it to a person. Malice is a significant distinction.

Mostly, the stuff that passes for mean on tumblr is just so impersonal and generic. I mean, yeah, it can hurt people, and it’s frequently totally out of line, but at the same time, it’s so utterly generic. Even if it’s very insulting in principle, that’s muted quite a bit by the fact that it’s generally addressed to “… or current resident”.

When you take the time to get to know people, and know their fears and dreams, and then specifically exploit the openings, build up hope so you can tear it down and so on, that’s actually mean. Most people won’t do that. Which is probably just as well.

cisselfs:

why is it that now everyone is suddenly listing every single thing about them on here, its no longer gender identity and age its all like 

  • gender identity
  • what you were born as
  • pronouns
  • age
  • location
  • ablebodied or not
  • ableminded or not
  • white or not
  • bra size
  • what colour underwear im wearing
  • how often i go to the bathroom

why WHY

Social Justice Warriors[SJWs] are the new cancer of the internet. They’re a bunch of college-age, American-centric, special snowflakes, who feel the need to dictate anything and everything like self-entitled asshole’s.

Who gave you the position of being the internet police?
Who gave you the right to decide what words are acceptable or unacceptable to use?

Who gave you the right to judge someone’s comedy or content as bad and take it away?

Who gave you the right to constrict someone’s creativity(writing, art), because you think that it’s “problematic”?

To add to that, sjws are the most racist shitholes I’ve ever seen.

You complain about racism all the time, yet you’re the one’s who look at nothing but skin color. It doesn’t matter if a character is intelligent, strong-willed, kind, or helpful. If they’re white you automatically peg them as the devil. Lupita Nyong’o won an oscar for best supporting actress and ALL I saw was people being “so happy that a woman of color won the award”. Because it didn’t matter if Lupita was incredibly talented and nailed the shit out of that role, all you assholes focused on was her skin color.

You reduce everyone down to their sexuality or race or gender, without giving a crap about someone’s actual personality or character.

You lump everyone who isn’t white into a single category(POC).

I’d rather be identified by my race, and along with that it’s heritage, and culture, rather than be called 3 ambiguous letters or words. Do you know how ridiculously offensive it is to call a person someone “of color”? Like we’re somehow different from people who are white? Like we need our own tag to segregate us from white people? YOU ARE MOVING SOCIETY BACKWARDS WITH THIS KIND OF SHIT. 

Racism against white people exists; not in the West, but in other parts of the world. White people are not the majority everywhere. You think the world evolves around America? You think every place is as diverse as America? 

Go to Africa. Go to the Middle East. Fuck, go to parts of Asia. Open a history book maybe. SJW’s are actually trying to call Irish people POC, when they are WHITE AS SNOW because they can’t stand the fact that white people have been oppressed in history.

POC’s can be racist against other POC’s. My Arabian boss hates Asians. My black grandfather doesn’t like Mexicans. 

White people are not Satan reincarnated. POC’s are not angels. Get that through your fucking head.

And stop STOP STOP speaking for other races! You’re only making yourself look stupid and like your suffering from an extreme case of white guilt.

Stop trying to pick apart every TV show/song/movie and look for thing you might deem “problematic”.

Go outside.

Get some air.

Stay off the internet.

Talk to actual people. Because most of you have barely any real-world experience and you will be eaten alive with your ridiculous ideologies.

And before anyone says “Well not all sjw’s are like that”, I am going off of the majority of sjws on tumblr. And if I’ve learned anything from sjw’s, it’s that it’s totally fine to judge and generalize the majority. 

( The fact that I have to say that I am a black girl to avoid getting bombarded with comments like “white cishet” just shows how appalling your “movement” has become. )

I don’t think anyone can effectively argue against this person.

That last part though….
