The bomb is dropped
The kittens sort of soften the blow.
this is the shittiest post ever. please unfollow me if you agree with this post also shame on OP for using cute kittens for this garbage post
not sure what it is exactly that makes this post so shitty? Because it’s promoting actual equality? instead of saying that you can call everyone else shit because you are part of an oppressed party you can say you are equal to them doesn’t exactly sound like a shitty idea to me.
"promoting actual equality" no, its literally a post silencing the voices of the oppressed speaking out against their oppressors. anyone that thinks a tumblr post talking about how men are scum or how cis ppl are horrible is equivalent to the subordination and oppression of marginalized groups is fucking ridiculous. you are just further silencing us and making shit about you. not bout it
the person who created this post is a Nazi. a literal Nazi, just so you guys know
Time to scare off all them followers I just got. (For all those followers, I tag these long posts with "Kuurant" - feel free to block it if it’s not your thang)
FIRST OFF: Way to give us a perfect textbook example of ad hominem, last poster. Who the poster is and what he’s done before has no bearing on the validity of the statement made here. I don’t care who wrote it - the message stands on its own merits. It’s not a quote. You’re attacking the person, not the content of the message. So that’s right out.
Secondly: I was actually hoping this post would come up again, because I came up with a great response to the refutations when I was going to sleep.
No. Just no! No, this is not “silencing the voices of the oppressed speaking out against their oppressors.” If the oppressed can’t say anything other than “we are literally better people than every single person of the group that has oppressed us”, then that oppressed person has lost the right to expect to be respected.
Every person has a voice, yes even the oppressed. And no, I am not silencing your voice by suggesting you stop telling everybody who doesn’t agree with you (and many people who do, because fuck, allies don’t actually exist right? Nobody can TRULY understand and thus they’re all ignorant chimps) that they’re all ignorant chimps and need to shut the fuck up and let the oppressed people basically just run rampant and do and say whatever the hell they want! Lemme say that again more clearly because that was kinda rambling.
I am not silencing oppressed voices by suggesting the oppressed USE those voices constructively, not destructively.
A voice is a terribly important thing, and it’s a tragedy to waste, and guess what? You are doing just that with the kind of statements this post is denouncing. You are WASTING your voice, you are declaring to the rational, sensible world, I AM NOT WORTH LISTENING TO, BECAUSE I HATE EVERYTHING THAT ISN’T ME.
Men can understand women. White people can understand racism. Straight people can understand homosexuality. Cis people can understand transgendered. No, we haven’t LIVED it, and thus we do not have as intimate a grasp with it as you. You are correct in that. But we are human beings. We are capable of abstract thought. Any GOOD person will be able to empathize with a feeling of isolation, with a feeling of unfairness, with a feeling of an innate sense of not belonging. We are capable of that.
So stop spitting on everybody that isn’t your flavor of oppressed minority and invalidating every word they try to say - words that sometimes are aimed at HELPING you and your cause.
