Anonymous asked: Whenever I hear "hate breeds more hate" thing said to oppressed people, my first response is generally "NO FUCKING SHIT, SHERLOCK." Like, you can't spend centuries kicking someone - metaphorically or literally - and expect them to not hate your guts.

Those jackasses are hardly Sherlock, though.

Well, you know…shit.

why would you pay someone for 26-51 weeks for doing nothing

you have a very, very odd definition of “doing nothing”.

Living as a woman in the USA in a nutshell:
If you don’t have sex, you’re a prude and a bitch.
If you have sex outside of marriage and use birth control to avoid getting pregnant, you’re a slut (whether you’ve had sex twice every day or twice in a year).
If you have sex outside of marriage, but don’t use protection and get pregnant, you’re a slut AND you’re stupid 
If you’re single and get an abortion because you can’t afford to take time off work to push a baby the size of a melon out of your cooch, you’re a slut, stupid, AND a murderer. 
If you’re single but don’t get an abortion, but need extra governmental help to assist in raising your child you were pressured to keep because of someone else’s moral code, you’re a slut, stupid, a leech on the back of society, AND shit out of luck.
AND THE HOOOOME OF THEEEEE BRAAAAAVE

What the hell?! Is this true?! How can you not pay maternity leave?!?! What the hell is wrong with you?!

A lot.

The one thing that is better in America is we are slightly cleaner than people in most European countries but that isn’t even that great since we’re TOO clean and it’s starting to hurt us

Cleaner? That sounds absolutely fuxking racist and unfounded.

Anonymous asked: why is "hate breeds more hate" a bad thing to say?

closettrolls:

Oh so many reasons.

1) it equates the anger of the oppressed to the hate of their oppressors.
2) it blames oppressed groups for their oppression. Bigotry doesn’t exist because people hate bigots. It exists because oppressed people oppose it. It exists because of bigots and because of privileged folks being complicit or tacitly condoning systems of oppression.
3) it’s fundamentally untrue. Hatred of oppression doesn’t lead to more hatred; it leads to progress.
4) it is used to attack any attempt by oppressed people to obtain liberation. Point out that something or someone is repulsively racist and all of a sudden you’re “breeding more hate”.

It’s a fundamental misrepresentation of reality that blames victims and excuses fucked up behavior.

I literally only ever saw this as people that live a life filled with hate will pass said hate onto their offspring. A child’s views are very often taken on from their parents and their environments. Literally BREEDING hate….. But I guess I’m wrong?

I think in this context: it’s okay. But I’ve seen it lately mostly among folks trying to shame oppressed peoples foe being angry at the people and institutions that create their oppression.

It’s part of a larger narrative that says that oppressed people ought to be willing to basically be martyrs. Some people just think that if oppressed folks are polite or civil enough that the violence they face will go away because the hearts of bigots will grow three sizes or whatever. It’s a noble thought, I suppose. But it does little for those experiencing that violence, delegitimizes important tactics to end that oppression, and even tries to silence oppressed folks who are justifiably upset about the forces working against them.

I have literally never heard “hate breeds more hate” being levied at ANY oppressive people, just at the very angry oppressed individuals who lash out at them.

Also very much this.

It gets under your skin and lives inside you, and you can’t run from it, you can’t hide. It finds you, and traps you, it grows over your soul like an encasing vine and it stays with you, you can’t get away from it. It’s like being in a room with 30 radios going all at once, on full volume, and you can’t turn them off, nothing stops it.

Anon asks:

Anon, please. My friend thinks it’s okay to joke about rape. He says as a society we should be able to joke about everything. I told him that certain things shouldn’t be joked about but he just dismissed me. What do? I hate listening to his shit but he’s a good friend. Not a good guy, a good friend.

Why would you be good friends with a bad guy though?  Also, yes, people should be allowed to make a (tactful, upwardly punching) joke about anything.  But rape survivors should ALSO be able to walk through the world without hearing one of the most traumatic experiences in their lives joked about and trivialized.  And if he thinks the right to make “jokes” overrides a survivor’s right to feel safe and untriggered, he’s a shithead who needs to lose friends over this issue.

Fucking seriously. If this person’s desire to make rape jokes is more valuable to them than your friendship: do you want this jackass anywhere near you?

Thank you you’re one of the few smart people on my inbox XO :-)

I mean, sexually harassing someone, misgendering them, calling them a “psycho path,” and shaming their body totally count as “opinions” right? If your opinion is that transness doesn’t matter and that you are entitled to control the bodies of other people, expect some fucking backlash because your “opinions” do harm to others - specifically marginalized minorities. Nice ableism, too.

You can stop sending messages to yourself. You look tragic.

Are you done? k :-)

why the fuck did you even bother to add that comment, you crusty little shit? wow totes sassy and edgy. irreverence as refutation. this is performance art.

"this is perfomance art" i didn’t know we were in art class

that wasn’t even sassy or edgy. you’re a bad performance artist.

*Mariah Carey Voice* boy why you so obssesed with meee

this is becoming a common theme. when people get called out on being sexist, transmisogynists, and ableists, they claim everyone is so “obsessed” with them.

nah gurl. nobody cares about you. but everyone cares about the fact that you harass and abuse young trans people. delete yourself you’re so messy.

In addition to the 8 million other shit things going on here: the anon seriously pulled the “HATING BIGOTS MAKES YOU JUST AS BAD AS THEY ARE” bullshit. Nearly word for word.

“Stop Talking About It”

racismschool:

The Morgan Freeman quote about the best way to end racism is an oft trotted out weapon of racists but never do we hear this more than during Black History Month. In fact, I’d say it may be second only to “If there was a white history month it would be called racist.” (This was supposed to be posted last month, sorry)

Usually, when people dissect this quote to show it’s ignorance, they make comparisons. I’m sure most of us have heard someone talk about this and facetiously say something like, “The best way to end cancer is to stop talking about it.” This is usually followed by three or four more comments just like it.

Well, it’s a good point. Great point even. The idea that not talking about something will magically make it disappear is non-sense at it’s finest.

While I both enjoy and agree with that tact, I’d like to give a different perspective here. First off, the quote in question, was taken out of context. Don’t get me wrong, Morgan Freeman stands proud on the side of white supremacy but this quote, at least the way it’s used, is taken completely out of it’s contextual point.

The point here is not and was not to “Stop talking about it” but instead to stop making it a “Special” conversation. If the discussion about racism was part of our every day lives, really a part of it, a part of the national conversation- in school, at work, everywhere. It wouldn’t be “Special.” When we saw racism, we would call it out, the person would make the decision to apologize and change or choose to continue to be racist but the “Call out” or the “Talking about” wouldn’t be dirty, wrong or “Political.” It would simply be Wednesday.

When racism comes up, it’s “Special.” Sure you hear about it a lot on sites like Tumblr but this site is really it’s own environment. It’s not reflective of the world at large.

If racism, in all it’s forms was a regular, every day discussion, something that could be discussed as freely as today’s school lunch, there would never, ever be a requirement for the “Special” conversation and we would no longer have to “Talk about it” in specially marked rooms with “Race theory” written on the door.

Finally, just to state the obvious, the people who’ve read this far and are looking for something more concise to say the next time they hear someone spout off the “Stop talking about it” stuff, simply say this:

In order to talk about racism, racism would have to first exist. I can’t “Point it out” if there’s nothing to point to. Stop asking me to change the effect when you have no interest in first changing the cause.
