talking to very republican teenagers is so surreal
It must be strange for you to see teenagers who don’t blindly follow their liberal parents, or their liberal teachers, or the liberal media, or liberal celebrities, or liberal musicians, or liberals on the internet.
Isn’t being conservative all about unquestioningly following social norms that have been enforced throughout most of history?
One of these days, some poor depressed cishet kid is going get tired of being abused on this site for something that they has absolutely no control over- his or her gender identity and sexual preference - and they will commit suicide. Because lord knows most of you won’t reach out to stop them.
And if your reaction to this post is “Good” or “lol”, you need to seriously look at your state of mind. You know, the one thing you actually CAN control.
meanwhile actual lgbt people are committing suicide and being attacked
but yh carry on feeling sorry about hypothetical cishets
People usually commit suicide because they can’t escape their problems. If a cishet person is being “bullied” online, they could easily just block those people, ignore social justice related tags, or log off. And that’s if they’re actually being bullied. A few people saying that they hate cishet people without saying “some” every single time or a few people refusing to give cookies to cishet allies is not bullying. A cishet person committing suicide because of cisphobia or heterophobia online is just as likely as someone committing suicide because they watched a TV show and didn’t like it.
LGBT+ people are being murdered, beat up at school, abused by their parents, etc, and they can’t escape that by just logging off. But you’re more worried about the slightest possibility of a single cishet person committing suicide from a few bad words being said in a place where they’re not forced to listen than about actual bullying of LGBT+ people.
Step 1: Comment on a woman’s attractiveness on every single occasion in every single venue no matter how irrelevant it is. Build up a dating culture entirely dependent on a female’s beauty. Teach children that only attractive women will ever get anywhere in life, will ever be praised, will ever find love and have a family, will ever have a chance at happiness, are worth knowing, are worth being.
Step 2: Mock women for caring about how they look. Call them shallow.
Step 3: Complain when some women are sometimes able to use their attractiveness to get what they want.
1) somebody submits a sexist post about men
2) somebody retaliates with a sexist post about women, basically rephrasing the first one
3) tumblr gets mad about the idea of treating women in such a way, whilst happily managing to ignore the whole point
*goes back on hiatus, even if it means relapsing cutting, because even that is better for my mental health than this fucking bullshit*
The first submission did not involve hurting all men. It only involved hurting men who rape and try to justify it by saying that their victims provoked them by how they dressed.
i was talking about rape precautions women take when they’re walking alone in the streets and my male friend asked, “why do women always focus on the worst possible outcome?”
and i realized that for men, a woman being raped is the worst possible outcome. but for women, the threat of being raped is so commonplace and prevalent that we never even think twice about the ingrained precautions we take.
Women focus on the worst possible outcome because THEY’RE FUCKING BLAMED FOR IT IF THEY DIDN’T DO EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER TO PREVENT IT!
