why is "hate breeds more hate" a bad thing to say?

lookatthisfuckingoppressor:

Oh so many reasons.

1) it equates the anger of the oppressed to the hate of their oppressors.
2) it blames oppressed groups for their oppression. Bigotry doesn’t exist because people hate bigots. It exists because oppressed people oppose it. It exists because of bigots and because of privileged folks being complicit or tacitly condoning systems of oppression.
3) it’s fundamentally untrue. Hatred of oppression doesn’t lead to more hatred; it leads to progress.
4) it is used to attack any attempt by oppressed people to obtain liberation. Point out that something or someone is repulsively racist and all of a sudden you’re “breeding more hate”.

It’s a fundamental misrepresentation of reality that blames victims and excuses fucked up behavior.

Can we all agree that Avatar had one of the worst movie adaptations of all time.

Listen to the sound of wikipedia

This is a way to listen to changes to wikipedia. You are literally listening to knowledge being added to the world.

Pluck sounds are an addition, strings are subtractions, and the pitch says how how big the edit is. My heart shudders at this I love it so much.

Chills.

Super relaxing tbh.

artist guilt

kinomatika:

when you want to draw but youre too stressed to do well on commissions and too guilt laden about the commissions thing to draw personal art so you just become an ouroboros of procrastination and anxiety

so i’ve seen a couple of posts lately discussing what is and isn’t abuse and what issues should be handled privately vs what constitutes a call-out post

but no one actually defined what abuse is, and that worries me, because one of the most dangerous aspects of abuse is how both victims and abusers can convince themselves that what’s going on isn’t abuse

in general abuse is a pattern of behavior used by someone to maintain control or power over someone else. this can be via violence, intimidation, scare tactics, undermining self confidence, attempting to pin someone against their friends / cut them off, making them feel dependent or forcing their dependence on the abuser, blaming their abusive behavior on you, denying rights to privacy, shaming, etc

so if you want to draw the line between someone who is abusive and someone who is just a dick, i suppose that would be whether or not:

  • you feel like you have any control over the situation
  • you feel like you have a voice
  • you feel safe leaving this person 
  • you feel like your other friendships / relationships are being threatened or attacked by this person
  • you feel like you trust yourself less than you used to because of this person

i could think of more probably but generally if you’re asking yourself these questions and don’t like how you’re answering them, then you’re not dealing with someone who’s just kind of a jerk, you’re dealing with an abuser.

Help Me Get A Wheelchair

lgbtadvocate:

24 days left and I’ve raised about a quarter of the funds I need.

It feels hopeless. My family abandoned me, I have no real friends and even strangers on the internet have stopped wanting to help me. It’s getting more and more difficult to motivate myself to try and get this out there. This, on top of the fact I haven’t been getting enough food to eat and I don’t have weather-appropriate clothing to wear, I simply just don’t have the money to help myself.

Please share this. I need your help. I’ve tried every other avenue and I’ve been denied. I really don’t know what else to do anymore. If it doesn’t pan out, I will literally spend the rest of my very short life confined to my home.

I wish i could help, but im in the exact same situation. signalboost.

Signal boost please! Donate if you are able!

I made a comic about what it feels like (to me) to cope with having an invisible illness and the judgements and accusations that sometimes come with invisible illnesses.

I did it in green ‘cause that’s the color of the Celiac Awareness ribbon Celiac is one of the “imaginary” “all in your head” “stupid” “hypochondriac” invisible illnesses I live with.

So here. Be nice to people in general, because it’s the right thing to do, but if you can’t at least do that then please don’t be an asshole when someone tells you that they have Lupus or Celiac or Fibromyalgia or any of the other things that we live with every day that you can’t see on the surface.

Cheers.

praise! this is a perfect comic for explaining what it’s like for new friends :D

Artists uses Disney princes to highlight domestic abuse’s least visible victims

Follow micdotcom

There needs to be more of this.  Too many people think domestic violence is only against women.

it makes me mad that this has waaaay less notes than the female version

its tumblr

The posts that say we need feminism because girls are literally demonised for liking pumpkin spice are going to get more notes then anything to do with male victims of rape or domestic violence 

Yeah, great post, great message, but blimey can we stop with the whole ‘if this was a female version it would have way more notes nobody cares about male victims bla bla bla’. 

Because let me tell you right now that it’s feminism and feminists that are campaigning for an end to gender roles and Patriarchy, WHICH IS THE THING THAT MAKES PEOPLE THINK MALE VICTIMS SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN AS SERIOUSLY AS FEMALE ONES. 

It’s just such a weak and backhanded crappy statement. This is a post about men that suffer from domestic violence. But you still have to derail it to get in a little point about how tumblr feminists are bad and evil. 

Grow up. This is serious stuff. 

You care about male victims of domestic violence? You fight against gender roles and the patriarchy. You don’t use this important post as an opportunity to get at feminists on tumblr. If you cared about male victims, let’s face it, you wouldn’t do that.

Bolded for importance.
