Because apparently comics are too high-tech for most of you people.

"but white people-" "but straight people-" "but men-"

But no.

Fun fact: “member of a majority” doesn’t mean “racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, sexist, douchebag!”

Bonus:

“Member of a majority” also doesn’t mean the average person in said majority is oppressing you.

Anonymous asked: I'm in the industrial tech area of my college. Let me tell you I've been treated nicer by the men in that department than I was use to. I'm sick of people generalizing that those kind of fields are just old boy's clubs. I'm sure some work environments in this field are like that but that has not been my experience. The reason I work well with my counterparts is because I don't have that feminist "have to be a tough as a man" act. I go in, I'm polite, and I'm pleasant.

Ahh! I keep forgetting to post this one.

Really, it’s amazing how far you get in life if you act like a decent human being, isn’t it? If you’re polite and respectful of people around you, realize that, hey, these are people too! They tend to treat you in kind, polite and respectful.

Amazing!

graham-bunny asked: Your behavior is quite worrying and nonsense. I hope you get therapy for your mental instability.

Quit talkin to people while lookin in a mirror, kid. Go back to your suburban parents and church.

EDIT: Also this is ableist. Imagine if a dearly loved relative were a drafted veteran and came home with PTSD. Would you continue to deride those with mental ailments after seeing their torment? I have a very close and dear friend who saved me once from a very dangerous situation, and who also struggles with schizophrenia. And who also is a pacifist who embraces ethnic, gender and sexual diversity, and is a loving parent and an amazing person. I also have a relative with low functioning autism who got all the good-looks genes, is a spacial relations prodigy (and I lack those, too-bad depth perception due to vision issues), and has an amazing ear for good music, as well as being just a great relative (the only one that’s still alive)

Point is, by villifying a broad demographic, we villify some of our most amazing and precious. Also, by sanctifying one, we allow the sanctified to rob us of our power and even personhood. This began as me making an “only-six-faces-in-animation” joke compounded on poking holes in the phrase I’m always told, how all member of my ethnicity supposedly look the same-a meme generated by the elite to rob us of our personhood. Then MRAs jumped in. However, most likely, they’re all white, cishet and hence well off and don’t struggle. And when one of their demographic does something wrong, that person is a “lone wolf bad egg.” And we miss out on a lot of potential danger,.

Point is, I’m putting this out there to show what priveledge looks like. Isn’t this ugly and vile? Will this user shun an older relative should they develop Alzheimers? Could this person have been friends with the MRA, who denies cishet male priveledge while the rest of us are trampled on in broad daylight while the nation is watching? Likely, now that I think of it. Ugly, revolting, filthy hearts.

And we need to realise that many of our inter-minority wars are planted by the elites. A good example being Asian vs. black American. Listen to what the racists on each side say about the other. Came straight from 19th century white dogma. I’m a geek of 19th and 20th century history, and this post is long, but think about it. Gay vs. Bi/Trans? Poor white vs. poor Black? All from the elite class. And we buy into it and eat out of their hands. When if we could just band together, we could take our rightful place as equals in society. On a larger scale, wars would be harder to start. The moneyed interest would remain, but selling it to the public would range from difficult to impossible (looking at all US wars after WWII, which is its own can of worms and America antagonised Japan first b/c Japan was conquering China)

And considering ableist douchebag above’s name…did they even WATCH the show!?

Hey, at least it gave me a starting point to post. This is what I do on my Japanese blog (minus the douches) all the time.

In respect of anibunny’s privacy, all I’ll say is that she is WELL entitled to speak on mental disease. Both anibunny and I suffer from mental illness, so you can take your entitlement and insistence on some supposed privilege and shove it right up your ass.

Anibunny was showing actual empathy towards you, because you do indeed to be incredibly unstable, and in need of some serious help.

..whoops, I forgot their URL isn’t anibunny anymore. Anyway.

The majority of your post is completely unrelated nonsense. I don’t care how many people you know with mental illness and disability. If you said you had a mental illness, that’s enough to illustrate your point, which in itself is bizarre.

And seemingly because you’ve run out of things to whine about, you decided to use the ‘fake geek girl’ argument about graham-bunny watching Gundam? First, what does that even have to do with anything? Second, you’re just an asshole trying to use an ad-hominem attack to justify your despicable behavior.

Protip: Attacking a person for any assumed personal qualities in the middle of a debate does not lend your argument any credibility. It makes you look like an asshole who can’t come up with any legitimate argument.

(and for your information, graham-bunny has indeed watched all of Gundam, so again, take your idiotic assumptions and shove them up your ass)

To come back to your original point: This is not in any way ableist. How the HELL do you think what graham-bunny said is AT ALL criticizing of mentally ill or disable people? They are expressing legitimate concern for you, because you do appear to be unstable.

Personally, I’m content to just call you an asshole and an idiot, but I’m not nearly as nice as graham-bunny.

In fact, you’re the one being ableist. You’re insisting that graham-bunny is mentally unstable and you’re using that as an insult. Good job. You’re also using suburban parents as an insult? What? That’s completely nonsensical and yet another ad-hominem attack based on your (entirely false) assumptions.

I’ve never seen someone be so wrong about everything. It’s like you’re trying to lower the bar for human behavior.

White ppl. Even in anime, they all look the same.

It’s a joke bc I’m Asian and fucking everyone tells me all of us look the same. To the person that was hurt by my joke, now you know how I feel about casual racism to Asians. Shown your priveledge.

EDIT: Now MRAs have jumped on me joking about how Asians in white countries are treated IRL as if we’re as human as an anime character. WAAAH reverse racism! WAAH poor cishet white ppl who have cheat codes for life WAAH look at me!!!

BEHOLD THE NUTTERY THAT IS MRA AND WHITE SUPREMACY

I mean the latest whiner’s name is “feminism is insane” . OBVS so scared to lose all that precious priveledge. So scared that someone who fucking grew up in Japan might be chosen for work in Japanese over the white cishet god that studied our language for four years safe in an American classroom away from us waaaaacky freeeeeeaks that everyone from 48 hours to the fucking BBC likes to make up/exaggerate/pull shit covered stories out their ass about us-no you study for four years and you know more than we do about us and get chosen over someone who translated for grandparents since age nine for a fucking TRANSLATION JOB!!

(So I’m trying to get a translation position. In case you’re curious, come battle/chat/chill with me in Japanese: http://byoudouimasugu.blogspot.com/

(I haven’t done anything there since Blog4Peace day, so sorry. Also, the Arabic in the background is wrong. That’s what happens when you just study a language for a couple of years. But if I was white, I could apply to and score a job translating Arabic!)

Seriously, I should screencap and post to failblog…

First, please note that this person didn’t reblog my reply (which is here) presumably in an attempt to avoid my notice.

Second, I’m not an MRA. This is just the first assumption you’ve made that makes you look like an asshole.

I’m also not heterosexual, nor is anibunny. Since you assume that I am, you haven’t read my bio, which means you’re AGAIN assuming that I’m a cisgendered male, which, again, make. you an asshole. …along with the rest of your post, but I’m getting to that.

Your race has nothing to do with this discussion. Neither is your story about translating? I’ve translated works to and from French, but that doesn’t somehow make it okay for me to make snide racist comments.

I really have no idea what you’re trying to say. I never questioned your race, so I don’t know why you’re trying to prove that you’re Asian. Especially because it’s irrelevant to this discussion.

So, to sum up your post, there is racism against Asians, and since you’re Asian, that makes it okay for you to be a racist.

Sorry, but that’s not how it works. You’re a racist, no matter how you try to justify it, you’re still a bigoted asshole. “Reverse” racism is a bullshit term made up by non-white people to try and justify their racism.

Is there racial discrimination in the workforce? Sure. Does it suck? Absolutely. But that is not justification for your racism.

I work in a female-dominated field. I’ve gotten looks and comments because I’m a man working in this field. Does that somehow make it okay for me to be sexist towards my coworkers?

Does the fact that men are discriminated in certain circumstances make it okay for any man to be sexist towards women?

NO. Your racism is not justified by the existence of racism or discrimination towards any group you belong to. You cannot justify racism, you’re either a racist or you’re not.

It’s clear that you didn’t even bother looking at my blog before you decided to whine about me. And you decided to not reblog my post, I guess hoping I wouldn’t see your childish whining. If you had, you’d realize that a) I have a bio page b) I have a page that explains what this blog is and c) that I am quite clearly not an MRA, nor really display any affiliation to any of the movements.

Since you’re either too stupid or lazy to open my blog, I’ll give you the short version. I don’t make fun of feminism. I make fun of stupid assholes like you that call themselves feminists but spew racism, sexism, and hate. Which, if you knew anything at all about feminism, you’d realize that you are, in fact, a stupid, ignorant asshole.

Thanks for playing, better luck next time.

White ppl. Even in anime, they all look the same.

All races look the same if you’re ignorant or racist enough!

Let me take this moment to explain something about cartoons.  In anime, most characters look similar (regardless of a character’s race) because that is the style of anime.  Anime focuses on features people tend to find attractive…eyes, hair, and clothing are what is exaggerated while other features are left to be simpler.  The anime style idolizes these features.  Variations of this occur for specific reasons from time to time, but it isn’t that common.  Exceptions to this trend does occur like in the anime One Piece.

Western style cartoons (with the exception of western comics like Marvel) tend to focus on expression.  This allows cartoonists to create a multitude of characters all with a variety of shapes and appearances.  Exaggerations in movement and expression is what is important.

This is why it is incredibly silly to try and claim one style is better than the other.  You might as well argue over whether Expressionism or Impressionism is better.

I don’t take too kindly to some hateful, ignorant, and bigoted person commenting on my posts like this.

It’s a joke bc I’m Asian and fucking everyone tells me all of us look the same. To the person that was hurt by my joke, now you know how I feel about casual racism to Asians. Shown your priveledge.

Uh huh.

What privilege is it you believe that anibunny has? You don’t have any idea who they are, or know anything at all about them. Unless you can magically see through your computer screen or something. For all you know, anibunny is Asian, which makes your comment about being Asian even more irrelevant than it already is.

Besides, even if you knew anything about anibunny, which you don’t and physically cannot,what sort of “privilege” is being displayed here? You made a racist comment, and everyone has the right to feel offended by that.

I’m not offended by the racism, but that’s mostly because I’m offended at your utter stupidity. How you can even coordinate walking and breathing at the same time is a mystery for the ages.

Please, tell me how what you said is a “joke”. And elaborate on how the fact that you’re Asian somehow makes that okay?

Spoiler alert: That’s not a joke, and your ethnicity does not make it okay and, in fact, is not at all relevant.

You don’t get to engage in casual racism just because you’re a minority. That’s stupid. It’s racism. I don’t care if you’re Asian, black, Hispanic, whatever, you’re still a racist, and you’re still a bigoted asshole, and I’d put good money on you being an idiot in general.

So good job on being a complete piece of trash.

.

Oh, and by the way, I had to edit anibunny’s response back into this post, I assume because su0823 doesn’t have an actual argument, and doesn’t want to be seen for the imbecile they are, but still felt the need to get the last word in.

graham-bunny:

I absolutely hate how often people on this website make assumptions of other people during arguments, debates, and discussions.

Worse when some of these people use their assumptions as a silencing tactic.  They can’t defend their position and so they resort to dismissive tactics.  Good job.

Feminist-a person who supports feminism.

Feminism-the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

Can I tell this to every woman I’ve ever met who says that she isn’t a feminist, but supports equality?

Ladies, don’t be afraid to call yourself a feminist. If someone judges you off of that alone, they are a person of poor character.

How about not judging people because they don’t call themselves feminist, hm?

Ladies, gents, and everyone, because you believe in equality doesn’t magically make you a feminist.

And not only women can be feminist.

How can you claim your movement is for equality when you think only women can be a part of it?

Cis People

wtfdoumean:

I am writing this to let you know that as a trans person I am embarrassed to be lumped in (merely because they are trans) with people who attack you verbally and wish you bodily harm. I hope you realize that this trend on Tumblr is not indicative of all trans people. I can’t speak for everyone, but I know there are numerous trans bloggers out there who find this trend to be problematic. I’m sure you’re a wonderful person. If you’re not, I’m sure it has little to do with you being cis.



P. S. thank you for continuing to support trans issues even if you’ve had these encounters.

Life hack: if someone makes a racist/sexist joke, say, with total seriousness, “I don’t get it, can you explain it”

Then watch them crash and burn

Alright then.

"Why don’t women have penises? So they can stand closer to the oven!"

'I don't get it, can you explain it'

"Well, in the last century, women were told they had to be homemakers. They had to do the cooking, cleaning, and raise the children while the ‘man of the house’ was working. This has become a stereotype, but in this century it’s not even remotely close to accurate."

'…..'

"You see, stereotypes can be funny. For instance, the false stereotype that all black people like watermelon and kool-aid. That’s an absurd thing to think. It’s easy to make fun of."

'*blank stare*'

"In the same way that the watermelon stereotype is patently absurd, the ‘woman in the kitchen’ stereotype is absurd and inaccurate. There are people who still believe these stereotypes, but the fact that they exist is so ridiculous and perplexing that the only thing we have to do is laugh at it."

'but- but- i—'

"You see, by making these "sexist" *air quotes* jokes about decades-old, stereotypes, we’re recognizing that these stereotypes are dead"

'bu-'

"Furthermore, joking about terrible things is just another way for individual people— and society at large to come to terms with terrible, vast problems like racism and sexism."

'you—'

"By making these jokes, we, as a society, are recognizing these terrible things and trying to deal with them. Making these issues less of a boogey-man makes them easier for the public to deal with. It’s easier to think about a problem when it’s not being held over your head like the sword of Damocles."

'I-'

"So you see, by laughing about issues like sexism, we’re trying to make them into less of a Huge Fucking Deal then they are currently. That is, we’re not devaluing  the issue, but instead making it less scary. If we can have a dialogue about sexism without making it out to be the end of the world, it’s easier to get the attention of the general public.”

'*sputters*'

"There’s a nutjob on every streetcorner screaming about the end of the world. There’s people screaming that this or that natural disaster is the work of God who is angry at some progressive thing their narrow worldview can’t handle. There’s just so much of this noise that we’ve all tuned it out like the bullshit it is. So when people talk about sexism the same way people talk about huricanes being caused by gay marriage, it gets tuned out."

'well—'

"If we remove the idea that sexism is the end of the world, people will start listening. If we make it less of a huge deal, make it less scary and apocalyptic, people will be more likely to listen, to think about it and come up with solutions. With a whole country listening and thinking, we could solve any problem."

'But you're making fun of sexism!'

"Yes, I am. You’re standing there, giving me grief about it. Why?"

'Because sexism is a big, important issue and you're devaluing it!!'

"By making light of sexism, I’m trying to turn it into a problem we can deal with. You, however, are spending time and energy deriding me for what is, at minimum, a harmless joke. Time and energy that could otherwise be used for fixing sexism and inequality."

why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that

uh 

because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”

and not the slang word for the female genital region?

literally no one else knows this. nobody. 

Even if this is true (I don’t feel like looking up etymology rn), it no longer applies.

Sorry but the word has changed, as words do. It does, in fact refer to female genitals. ‘Pussy’ is used in the same way that calling another man a girl is an insult. In fact, they are used interchangeably. Ask any man and they will tell you the same thing.

The thing that pedants seem to not understand about language is that technical definitions and etymology aren’t fixed things. Words change. Some get dropped from common usage, some are redefined, and new words are created to replace old ones. 

A perfect example of this is the word ‘ironic’. Absolutely no one uses ‘ironic’ according to the technical definition. Here’s the definition of irony:

  1. A statement that, when taken in context, may actually mean something different from, or the opposite of, what is written literally; the use of words expressing something other than their literal intention, often in a humorous context.
  2. Dramatic irony: a theatrical effect in which the meaning of a situation, or some incongruity in the plot, is understood by the audience, but not by the characters in the play.
  3. Ignorance feigned for the purpose of confounding or provoking an antagonist; Socratic irony.
  4. (informal, sometimes proscribed)[1][2] Contradiction between circumstances and expectations; condition contrary to what might be expected. [from the 1640s]

No one uses the word like that anymore. In popular usage, ‘irony’ has come to mean something like a coincidence that is amusing in the right context. You know how irony is used popularly, I don’t really need to explain it.

Language changes. ‘pussy’, like ‘irony’ has changed in meaning and usage. No one knows or cares what the proper definition and etymology of any particular word is (unless you’re a linguist or just a pedant), they are really only aware and interested in its modern usage.

The public vernacular is not a dictionary. It’s fluid. Do you remember when we finally admitted that ‘ain’t’ is a real word? It had been in usage for decades before Webster begrudgingly added it to the dictionary in the 90’s (or was it the 2000’s?). Now it is a legit modern English word.

So there you have it. You’re wrong and here’s seven paragraphs explaining why.
