Anonymous asked: To be honest, most of the people who call themselves social justice warriors are people that make me want to murder someone, because they literally have no fucking idea what they're saying and don't actually do anything. For example, I've had an "SJW" try to tell me that pansexuality is just an excuse to be a whore and since I'm dating a guy, I'm obviously straight. That's not to say there aren't good people who go under the title of social justice warriors, most of them are just dickheads.

This. Especially this.

I run a social justice blog and I hate the social justice warriors. A lot of them are young teenage kids who think the whole world works like in America. I’ve been accused of being white because I dont share the typical anti white sentiment. I’ve seen people argue with a girl in Hong Kong, trying to tell her that white people have white privilege in China. That is how stupid and uneducated they can get.

So why are Bronies* the only ones attacked ad hominem?

(Ad hominem = “to the person,” ie. insulting a person for their characteristics in a way that isn’t focusing on their opinions, which is what the subject of the argument is)

Yeah, Bronies* are a shitty bunch of human scum for their personal beliefs and entitlement toward a little girl’s show, but you can’t get through a rant about them without hearing the following words and phrases:

  • Neckbeard
  • Fedora
  • MRA
  • meme-loving
  • Friend Zone
  • Brony Friendzoni
  • Cheeto-stained
  • Mom’s Basement
  • and in some extreme cases, fat-shaming and body-shaming

See all these? These aren’t insults toward (some of, but not all of) their awful views on women, safe places for children, greedy entitlement toward the MLP brand, and their homophobic/racist/transphobic/female fat-shaming views. They are attacks on their hygiene, living conditions, and appearance. These insults get thrown at them rapid-fire. In fact, they’re clumped up together to create the stereotype of the most unwanted type of male in Tumblr’s fandom side. So the question is:

"Why aren’t other shitty fans attacked ad hominem too?"

Seriously, there are other fandoms with (definitely not as much) shitty fans, yet I hardly ever see them being attacked for their characteristics, and when they are attacked. And sometimes, I notice that any attack on them (as seen through anon hate within the Dangan Ronpa tag, for starters) results in the one answering to claim their statement is very sexist/racist/ableist or anything of the sort, or tell them that ‘attacking me for who I am is an unfounded argument,’ or something of the sorts. It’s kind of unnerving, in my opinion, to see that, despite probably deserving every insult they can get, Bronies* are attacked for how they look like rather than the bullshit they do. And with the lack of body-positive posts aimed for men, it feels as if ‘ugly’ men are less desirable by ‘ugly’ women (and by ‘ugly,’ I mean those considered ugly by the vein people in the mainstream; I personally believe everyone is beautiful as long as they’re not shitty on the inside). I mean, it’s definitely understandable that Bronies* shame others they don’t like for asinine reasons, but don’t you think that you’re stooping to their level when you’re trying to show that you’re the better person?

…Also, for fun: try to genderflip these statements to if they were insulting a woman or non-identifying person. Wouldn’t it seem misogynist and sexist to call out a cishet female fan of Sherlock or Free! as a ‘feminazi landwhale with no job who fetishizes queer people?’

The point of the argument is simple: Talk shit about Bronies* for what goes on in their sick minds, not for their outward attributes. Don’t stoop to their level. Be the better fan.

*by Bronies*, I’m talking about the misogynistic entitled Bronies that corrupted the MLP fandom, and not all male-identifying fans who like the series.

Genius Duke project calls out the offensive phrases we say every day

The normalization of homophobic and misogynistic language, especially among young people, is nothing new. But while there may be a growing awareness of the problem, there haven’t been many organized initiatives dedicated to eradicate these types of problematic expressions — until now. Enter Duke University’s campaign “You Don’t Say,” which is an effort to remind students that language is powerful, and that word choice has consequences. 

The Duke project uses photos to show how casual slurs like “no homo,” “tranny,” “that’s so gay” and “you’re such a pussy” target women and the LGBT community. In the series, Blue Devils students explain why they have adjusted their language.

I don’t about how anyone else feels, but I felt like drawing my own. I feel like this more often than I want to, and I’m currently on the brink of just giving up altogether…it hurts like hell feeling left out of things or not being included, or just the feeling of being forgotten or ignored in general…I really want to just throw in the towel and abandon all ties to some people so I never have to feel this way…but I still have a small spark of hope somewhere that won’t let me quit no matter how much I’d really like to…so…I guess I’ll just wait and see..

Man, if this isn’t an accurate description of my life, I don’t know what is..

Thank you for your efforts in drawing how I feel a lot of my life. I appreciate getting the chance to experience some of the same feelings with you all.
