homophobia is not an opinion. transphobia is not an opinion. ableism is not an opinion. racism is not an opinion. these things just make you a bad person and you can’t defend them at all. i don’t want to talk to you if you think these things are okay, and i don’t care about your feelings if you’re upset that i’m mad at you for these things, because you obviously don’t care about the feelings of the people effected by it.

  #yes    #this    #internet  

Dear Therapists, Doctors and Counselors everywhere: I regret to inform you, but the Internet is real.

Yes, friendships on the internet are real. Bonds are formed. Common interests are explored. Support is mutually given and recieved.

Romance on the internet is real. People meet through any forum from Eharmony to World of Warcraft. Then, for whatever reason, the relationship blossoms and they decide to fly half way around the world and get married.

The bullying, harassment and terrorism is also real. When we recieve messages that tell us to go kill ourselves, we genuinely feel sad and bad because those messages are real. When we recieve threats that someone is going to rape us or burn our house down, we feel the amount of stress and fear that is appropriate for recieving those threats face-to-face.

The internet is real. As technology becomes integrated with our lives, it will only become ever more real. No, we can’t just “quit the internet” to focus on our “real lives” because, sadly, the internet is real. As employers increasingly ask us to put our resumes online, as jobs require us to have smartphones and email contact 24/7, as universities offer correspondance courses, and goods and services are paid for with Paypal or Bitcoin, the internet has proven itself to be a very real form of interaction.

The Internet is like real life, with good people and bad people and job opportunities and scams all rolled into one very new form of communication!

Please stop telling us to “just quit the internet” to solve our problems.

Thanks,
Young People Everywhere

Steve Rogers did not go to war so he could be close to Bucky what the actual hell. Steve Rogers did love Peggy, and did not think that Bucky was somehow better than her. For that matter, Bucky Barnes actually has things going on in his life other than the care and feeding of Steve.

If you have to erase everything about two characters to make them some generic, preconceived couple, there’s something wrong.

fuckallies:

On average, you have a 1 in 18,989 chance of being murdered

A trans person has a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered

The average life span of a cis person is about 75-90 

The average life expectancy of a trans person is 23-30 years old

75% of people killed in anti LGBT hate crimes are poc

Think about this the next time you go crying over “cisphobia” and “reverse racism”

In the instances when POC say shit like ‘Oh I can’t stand white folk’ or ‘Damn white people’, they aren’t saying ‘Oh I think they are inferior, I want to humiliate them, abuse them, enslave them and wipe out their people!’, they’re saying ‘Damn, after a couple hundred years of white people thinking I’m inferior, humiliating me, abusing me, enslaving me, and trying to wipe out my people, I don’t wanna deal with them.’ The context is completely different.

"guess we cant have different opinions on tumblr"

nah son. an opinion is like “orange juice is nasty” or “fall out boy is overrated”

"your gender identity is ridiculous and you dont deserve to have it respected" is straight up bullshit and you should be called out on it

you don’t have to write about sex in your fanfic. it’s not a requirement, don’t let anyone tell you it is. your ship doesn’t have to be physical to be intimate. if you want to write fluffy one shots, you make those fangirls squeal. if you want to write angsty heart breakers, bring on the tears. write what you love and what you’re comfortable with. but never let those comments people make, about how T and G rated fics aren’t worth their time, sway your inspiration.

There’s a difference between enjoying something that’s problematic and excusing something that’s problematic because you enjoy it.

BUT WHY THIS LADY AND NOT THAT LADY??

don’t even do that Marvel fandom

don’t even start with that

pitting the ladies against one another because one has received media recognition another has not yet received is no way to support them

instead you should be asking, why not both ladies

why not all the ladies

why does it have to be a competition

ALL of Marvel’s ladies are equally deserving of getting their own shows or movies or action figures or what have you, so let’s just be glad that one of them actually did manage to get the media recognition she deserves, because you know what

that means she has the opportunity to open up doorways for other lady faves to get exclusive media too

so don’t start on that Peggy versus Sif versus Natasha nonsense, because petty bickering doesn’t get funding for future similar projects

full-throttle support gets funding for future similar projects

GET IT PEGGY

a joke is still made with words that can mean really disgusting hurtful things lol and if no one can tell your jokes apart from hate speech or general jackassery the problem isnt with the people who dont get your “jokes”. because they get your jokes. they get that you think its a joke. but the reality of the situation is if you put together a vile and and repulsive string of words people are totally justified in telling you that
