Incidentally, I don’t mind being verbally abused on Tumblr. For one thing, the people abusing me are idiots; secondly, they’re on fucking Tumblr; and finally, they’ve misinterpreted my own statements in the exact manner I suspected they would, which I find more amusing than offensive.

I try to tell people they’re poisoning themselves with their hate, and they turn right around and tell me that it’s all okay because the people they hate actually deserve it. There’s really no appropriate response to obstinacy and stupidity of that magnitude, other than derisive laughter.

Anonymous asked: so what youre saying is that you support cis people? after all theyve done to oppress you as a "queer" individual?

stoppity:

Yes. I do support cis people. Just in the same way that I would support anyone else. If you are born cis, you cannot help that fact. You aren’t born into hatred. Being cis isn’t wrong. At all.

Have I been oppressed by cishet individuals? Absolutely. I’ve had the shit beat out of me all through high school because of my sexuality. I’ve been beaten, abused, held down, denied employment, and raped for who I am. By cisgendered, heterosexual people. But that doesn’t change the fact that my father is cis. My mother is, too. My friends are. My classmates. My roommate. My girlfriend, for fuck’s sake, is cis.

Just because I have been wronged by some, does not give me the right to hate all. I hate some. Not, by any means, all.

I hate those that have wronged me as individuals. As specific people, who have done specific wrong to me. My rapist was cisgendered. But, so is my eight-year-old niece. 

In short, Anon, yes. I absolutely support cis persons. Why? Because being born with uncontrollable traits is not grounds for hatred, under any circumstances. 

Two of the three boys that beat the shit out of me in high school, consistently, were black. Does that give me the right to hate all black men? Absolutely not. Do you see where I’m going with this, Anon?

No matter the circumstances, hating an entire group of people based on immutable traits is wrong. When you do harbor these prejudices, you are no better than those you claim to be fighting.

I got shat on for saying the exact same thing. Apparently, as a cisgendered person, I have to wait for a non-cis person to step up and say what I want to say.

Prejudice is prejudice and bigotry is bigotry. It is a poisonous, soul-killing pattern of thought, and it does NOT become fucking acceptable by mere virtue of being directed at someone with fewer disadvantages than yourself. By doing so, you are only adopting exactly the same tactics which you believe to be used by the people you hate.

It’s like you guys want to be outraged and offended.


Given that they’re apparently willing to just MAKE SHIT UP to support their viewpoints, that ought to be obvious.

Six Foot Boy: On "Social Justice," Privilege and Other Inane Bullshit

spruebox:

puncturedproof:

This recent spat with the whole social justice scene on tumblr is not my first rodeo. Without going into explicit details, I have offended the sensibilities of a couple of people affiliated with a male privilege tumblr.

I’d like to take the following post to explain why this whole “movement” is…

Really good read.  It’s a bit long, so I left it as a link.

And I’m sure I’ve offended someone who was going on about white privilege today (not white male privilege…  white privilege, mind you).  And it was the same thing this person mention, which I’ll quote, because it really stood out to me while reading this:

And this is what irks me about these social justice bloggers. They simply identify themselves with an oppressed (or what they feel to be oppressed) group and then make the forces which they feel are oppressing them explicitly other. They are overly concerned with people’s membership in various racial or gendered groups and not who they are as individuals. And that is a fatal flaw of all these “privilege” blogs—they assume that forces of oppression affect people in the same way because they belong to a group that isn’t the great white male oppressor. And that just simply isn’t true. 

Basically they make idiotic blanket statements and piss off everyone in the group they’re ragging on about, which to me defeats their entire point, because then no one likes them except their fellow SJ bloggers and who gives a crap about them?

The social justice movement online has turned into a disgusting mutual-appreciation society for those who want to feel more virtuous than the rest of the world.

WildStar added body sliders to CC

If you were on the fence about this game before then now you really shouldn’t be. This dev team listens to fucking ALL feedback and actually makes changes accordingly.

HALLELUJAH AND ALL THE LOPPS SING

OH SHIT SONNNNNNNNNN

WHAT

WHAT

WHAT

I’m going to throw all my money at this game.

(I’m consistently impressed by how responsive the WildStar dev team generally is.)

My problem with WildStar is that it’s Guild Wars 2’s combat system and WoW’s everything else, which is not exactly an appealing combo to me.

That is the most hilariously inaccurate description of WildStar I’ve ever seen, and that’s coming from someone who played both GW2 and WoW.

Oh my god the devs are listening. At one point they said they weren’t adding anything more to character creation before launch, so I’d resigned myself to what we had.

Also…new hairstyles already??? Ugggh I wish I could log on and see the changes 

Not to rain on anyone’s parade, but the devs never said there were sliders; what they said was “multiple body types”, to be exact. So you’re probably going to get the skinny, muscular, chunky, etc. choices. Pretty old-hat stuff, but holy shit — it’s a huge improvement just to have options available.

As one dev said on Reddit, right after he replied to a post saying that the body sliders weren’t technically possible in the timeframe they had, somebody on the team went to work finding a way around the technical impossibility.
