By the time you see the tentacles, it's far too late.
I have that problem sometimes at the coffee shop :p
Because it implies that if your disability isn’t “visible” then it doesn’t count
how about just “disabled”
can we do that
i’m tired of hearing it
it’s become a buzzword with no meaning used by teenagers who want to “make a statement” when all they’re doing is blowing hot air
if you want to criticize institutionalized hierarchies of privilege and oppression, do that
but protip, reblogging a post that says “cishets poop their diapers!! lol!” does nothing except make you look like a petulant child
it also shows that you have nothing useful to say and can only parrot slang other people have made popular
criticize cissexist biass in things like gov’t paperwork
criticize heteronormative representation in media
type out the big kid words you want to use don’t just toss around “cishet”
saying “cishet” alienates heterosexual trans people and cisgendered queer people
specify, clarify, and write something you ACTUALLY THOUGHT ABOUT instead of a ~trendy edgy tumblr post~ that perpetuates spite and says nothing valuable
fun fact: in germany if you’re a neo nazi or own nazi regalia they arrest the absolute fuck out of you
fun fact: guess what we should do in america
Free speech is not just “speech that doesn’t bother me is okay,” people. In order for it to be actually free, you have to let everyone say what they want to, when they want to (within reason and I realize the law is flawed but that’s the gist of it). You can arrest the absolute fuck out of people with nazi regalia but that doesn’t stop them from being neo nazi. Fun fact: it doesn’t stop people in Germany from being neo nazis either, they’re just quieter about it.
If this is about the shootings, then I would like to point out that while being a nazi sympathizer is legal, killing people still isn’t. You can quietly hate a race of people all you want but actually acting on it is frowned on in pretty much every state.
Anyway, if you arrest nazis in the US because you don’t agree with their views (and I’m not saying I agree with their bullshit dumb gross views either), where does it end? Lots of people don’t agree with Christian views either, but we don’t arrest them just for being Christian.
The argument goes further, but that’s the bare bones of it.
I told her to get to bed and she was like “oh god Jaydee, WHATEVER,” after which I told her if she didn’t change her tone with me I wasn’t going to let her go to the mall.
