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

I don’t want it; I don’t need it.

this scene is even more creepy when you realize Spirited Away was a metaphor for the sex industry in Japan

oh

oh

OH FOR FUCK’S SAKE!

NO IT WASN’T, YOU JACKASSES!

"Totoro’s about dead girls!"

"Spirited Away is about sex!"

You know what I hear?

"Maybe if I make up something that sounds smart, people will think I’m smart, even if it’s a complete fucking lie!

Hayao Miyazaki is a man of values. He’s a man who believes in the innocence of childhood and has a wonderful imagination. He believes in simplicity, kindness, the beauty of nature, and the old ways. He draws on these beliefs and his personal experiences when he makes movies.

Spirited Away was made for some friends of Miyazaki’s. Specifically, the ten-year-old daughters of some friends he invited to stay at his vacation home. It’s fairly common for Miyazaki to decide that he’s going to make movies targeted at a specific age group. Ponyo is for five-year-olds. Spirited Away is meant for ten-year-old girls, but enjoyed by a much wider audience.

I repeat, SPIRITED AWAY WAS MADE FOR TEN-YEAR-OLD GIRLS.

The bathhouse? Not a brothel. Based on a bathhouse in his home town, which he thought was a place of mystery and wonder when he was a kid. That scene where the bathhouse staff has to clean the polluted river spirit? Based on Miyazaki’s own experiences of a town coming together to clean up a river. This scene? It’s about Chihiro not being greedy, because Chihiro is a positive role-model for ten-year-old girls.

The themes of Spirited Away are courage, strength of character, and individuality. ESPECIALLY individuality. That thing where Yubaba takes away peoples’ names and changes their species? That’s her taking away their individuality. Chihiro’s parents are now pigs, not people. Haku’s name has been shortened so he forgets who he is. When Yubaba changes Chihiro’s name, the only Kanji she leaves spell out “Sen”, the Japanese word for “one thousand”, meaning Chihiro is just another pawn of Yubaba’s, not her own person.

You want to seem cool and intelligent? Talk about the movie’s actual themes. Don’t make up this shock-value bullshit for attention.

You stupid motherfuckers.

FUCKING THANK YOU.  I get so fucking sick of this shit, stupid motherfuckers trying to pervert movies by claiming there’s dark twisted themes in films where they don’t exist.  How about discussing how Chihiro was offered gold and turned it down because she needed to help Haku instead?  She turned down a ton of gold to save a friend.  THAT’S SOME PRETTY NOBLE SHIT RIGHT THERE, instead of the fucking brothel lies.

you can preach about slut-shaming all you want, but you can’t deny there’s something very wrong with 13 and 14-year old girls going out in skirts and dresses so short they barely cover their asses and shirts with necklines so low they show off cleave they haven’t got yet, drinking and even smoking and hooking up with guys before they even have a substantial knowledge of how sex and sexual relationships work.

Yes, there is something wrong with it.  No, you are not better than said girls.  And no, it is STILL NOT AN EXCUSE TO SLUT SHAME.  Not even 13 year olds with “dresses so short they barely cover their asses”.

There IS a reason why very young girls engage in these types of behaviors, and at the fragile age of 13, it’s not because they are conscientiously reclaiming their sexuality and their body.  It’s because they’ve already had their sexual power taken away from them.  At 13, they’ve already learned that their sole value as young women is their ability to be sexually desirable to men.  It’s a form of self-objectification and it is caused by (not a JUSTIFICATION FOR) sexism.

This has everything to do with the same dysfunctional culture about sexuality that allows people to think slut shame is *~totes cool cuz those girls are dumb hoes~*.  People need to STOP revictimizing these young women who are ONLY ACTING ON WHAT THEY’VE LEARNED.  Instead of looking down on them and continuing the cycle of telling them that they’re worthless, they need to know that they’re WORTHWHILE.  Not just because they are attractive and desirable, but because they’re also strong, smart, funny, interesting, kind, talented, and any number of other traits that someone who is learning to see themselves as an object might not immediately recognize.

Shit like this just really pisses me off.
