I’ll respect your opinion as long as your opinion doesn’t disrespect my existence.
THIS PHRASE SHOULD BE WRITTEN EVERYWHERE AROUND THE WORLD
Yato’s wish is to sing with Beyonce though
Sry Yato your wish is destined never to be true.
this guy pulled out his dick in front of like 5 billion feminist protestors holy shit
Some context for the idiots claiming the women are overreacting:
This occurred at a Slut Walk. For those not familiar with it, the Slut Walk is basically a peaceful protest seeking to eliminate the rape apologism so prevalent in society. The basis is that no woman is “asking for it,” with “it” being rape. It’s not a feminist protest; it’s a human rights protest.
Many of the protesters, as you can probably imagine, have dealt with sexual harassment or rape in their own lives. Many of them have structured their daily activities to avoid being raped. The gathering is supposed to be a place for them to feel empowered and able to recover in the company of those who understand what they’ve been through or who will not blame them.
Nobody at a Slut Walk will tell a survivor that it’s her fault. They will not ask what she was wearing to provoke her attacker. Nobody will say she had too much to drink. Nobody will tell the men in the group that they are inherently rapists themselves, and nobody will tell a male survivor that his experience “wasn’t really rape.”
Then, this fellow comes along. He sees this gathering of survivors and their supporters, and to him, it’s a joke. He sees feminazis. He sees girls who are taking “a bit of fun” too seriously. And what does he do? He exposes himself to this group of survivors and supporters - some of whom are, in fact, underage.
He sexually harasses literally hundreds of women in one act. Aside from public indecency, there was cruel intent in his actions. He wanted to make them uncomfortable. He wanted to “put them in their place.” Other photos from this event show him flipping the protesters off and laughing at their anger.
And there are still people defending his actions. There are those who still feel like these women were asking for itand that they deserved to be harassed for trying to claim they weren’t. There are those who feel that women should be taught a lesson this way, and they applaud this man’s actions.
So no, he didn’t pull out his dick in front of feminist protesters. He harassed dozens - if not hundreds - of rape survivors. The reaction to his actions alone outline the purpose of the Slut Walk.
For those of you still doubting whether what he did was wrong (and I do wonder if there’s something wrong with you, if you have doubts), let me give you an analogous situation. Imagine a gathering of black civil rights activists. Imagine Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and all their colleagues gathered together to demonstrate that being black did not make them lesser people. That being black and living in the South did not mean they were “asking” to be the target of hate crimes.
And at this gathering, a white man decides he should teach them a lesson by pointedly hanging a noose from the nearest tree and laughing at their anger. And other white men, laughing along with him, commend him for taking these activists down a peg.
That’s what happened here. It’s not an “OMG, I can’t believe he did that!” moment. It’s an “OMG, there are people who think this is okay” moment. And the fact is, it’s not. It never will be. And that’s the take home message of this ridiculous rant I’ve written up.
And this is why we still need feminism.
this made me cry holy shit
That was hands down one of the most well-written and beautiful responses I have had the pleasure to read. Thank you
We use language in various forms from the moment we’re born until the moment we die. To pretend or argue that it has no power, that it can’t be used to marginalize and oppress, that it can’t be violent, that it can’t be used to murder, is either immensely disingenuous, or completely naive.
"Words only have power if you let them!" "They’re just words!" OK then let’s see you get by for an entire month without using them, if they’re so arbitrary and ultimately meaningless. And you can’t use sign language or written words, either, since that’s still language. No words. None for an entire month. They don’t really mean anything unless you let them, after all, so I’m sure you’ll do fine.
Such an accepting community we live in. I always feel comfortable sharing my opinions in the judgement free environment of tumblr dot com, yep it sure doesn’t get much more open minded than this
lol abuse apologism isn’t an opinion, it’s just you being trash
Also, I can’t talk for any other social justice-inclined bloggers, but I also feel nervous about speaking up on this site. I go to reblog a post about some social justice topic, or I start to make a post about something, and I start to get second thoughts. “Will this make someone angry? Are my followers annoyed by seeing this stuff all the time? Could I lose a friend over this?” I’ve seen all the anti-SJ hate that gets flung around this site, just because people dare to speak up about things that negatively affect their lives and dare to be angry about the society we live in.
So it’s not like the “SJWs” are some all-powerful elite who rule over tumblr with an iron fist. We get shit on, too, by people who’d rather we didn’t talk about this stuff. There are actual neo-Nazis on this site. I saw one just two days ago. They have just as much of a presence here as we do, even if you don’t see them on your dash, and to be honest, they’re the ones causing real harm, not the so-called SJWs.
my friend Pete literally makes me cry with his snap stories
this is me, i am pete, love me
zuko/katara parallels - picking cover names
Ugh plz like Zuko and Katara are the only two who ever picked dorky-ass cover names. Aang (“The name’s Bonzu! Pippinpadilopsikopolis… the Third!”) and Sokka (“Fire! Wang Fire! And this is my wife, Sapphire!”) did the exact same thing.
DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.
