The leading cause of deaths of white males are stupid pranks gone wrong

it’s true though, shit like this is why the death rate for males between the ages of 18-30whatever is so high, they’re most likely to die of accidents, drug deaths, and violence 

and I’m pretty sure this is a multi-category pile of bullshit

I’m white, I’m not privileged, I’m not racist, and I don’t care what people do with their lives as long as they don’t hurt or slander anyone, much less entire groups of people, because some of this people are racist? I haven’t murdered any oppressed groups? I haven’t said anything about anyone. Yes, hate breeds hate. All of this is going to have everyone running in circles in a fucking hate fest. This is not how you are going to achieve peace or equality, it’s just going to keep everyone as divided as possible, keep a war going on. No one should feel bad for their skin color or sexuality, when they haven’t done anything to deserve it. Hating entire groups of people knocks out the possibility of /any/ good individual in that group. I don’t not hate my cis friends or straight friends. They haven’t done anything to me. The only person I’ve met so far that made me feel bad about being trans was gay. But it’s okay, right? Because he’s gay? Or not because he’s white? It doesn’t make any sense and it’s not achieving anything but arguments such as this one.

the concept of privilege in certain areas directly deals with that area. because you are white, you are not subjected to certain disadvantages that a person of colour would be. you aren’t going to be followed around a store because of stereotypes put in place because of your race in the same way a black person would be. you aren’t receiving disproportionate pay at work in the same way a latin@ person is. therefore, you are privileged in terms of your race. not any other area that i know of, but your race specifically.

even if i were to not discuss why the hate breeds hate ideology is harmful, that isn’t going to stop me from being affected by racism, or fatphobia, or transphobia. my silence isn’t going to dismantle oppressive systems. as for the equality bit, i’m gonna quote fran here:

marginalized people aren’t fighting for equality‏. we are not fighting to be equal to the classes that oppress us‏. we are not fighting to attain the same power as them, we are not fighting to be able to oppress and hurt like they are able to‏. the real equality we are fighting for is separation from that‏.

generalizing/hating entire groups is more of a survival tactic. for example, my fellow people of colour do tend to have an aversion to associating with white people because they know that race will be an issue. they know that they will be subjected to racist ideologies - which white people don’t know they have, and they do because they are conditioned to ignore and perpetuate racism. racism is subconscious, which is why it’s easy for any white person to say that they aren’t racist - that will take a toll on their mental health. because we aren’t afforded the luxury of being judged person to person by racism as an institution before it affects us, we are under no obligation to judge each of our oppressors person to person before we develop an aversion to them.

it’s great that your friends haven’t done anything for you to hate them or the groups to which they belong. it’s fantastic, even. but you can’t apply the same situation to other people. i’ve had white friends who have perpetuated racism despite knowing that i’m affected by it. i’ve had straight friends who have perpetuated homophobia despite knowing that i’m affected by it.

you can’t assume that every marginalized person that hates their oppressors has no reason to do so because you don’t know their situation.

The Little Mermaid TV Series: Gabriella

Remember when Disney had a cute, disabled, poc mermaid?

When i was younger, one of my best friends was a deaf guyanese girl, and her fave princess was Ariel, mainly bc she related to her living without a voice (and her love of swimming)

When this episode aired, she cried and squawked and made sounds that were almost understandable… She saw herself as a mermaid, on tv, with her favourite character of all time

Representation matters, always, no matter what
