I am absolutely sick and tired of the assertion that the human mind is not capable of deliberate malicious action unless its abilities are compromised.

Really? That’s interesting. Because I am sick and tired of the assertion that mental illness means that one’s mental abilities are compromised.

He might look cute and all, but when you’re finished he’ll tear your heart out.

ok so anahita just helped me understand something that i didn’t know before so thank u for that and i’m posting it cause it’s important!

This is also very wrong.We have a term that we use to describe the racism experienced by poc.  That term is “institutionalized racism”. This is important, because it also reminds people that the racism occurs at a systemic level, as opposed to just a personal one. This means that a poc can go their entire life without meeting a single racist person and still suffer from and experience racism. It also means that personal education is not enough to dismantle the oppression that poc experience, we must also change policies and laws and our social institutions.Now I’ve seen this argument a couple of times, and it’s always left a bad taste in my mouth. White people CAN experience racism. They can meet racist people. They CANNOT experience institutionalized racism. They cannot be the victims of societal institutions that work to oppress them. Literally nothing is gained by dropping the “institutionalized” from the phrase, all it does is confuse and anger people and get them to argue over shit they’d most likely agree on otherwise.So please stop spreading misinformation. I know that that isn’t your intention, but it’s what you are effectively doing, and it isn’t helping.

Y’all can understand why the mutants in x-men hate the humans but can’t get why black people hate whites

You mean the bad guys in the X-Men? Are you literally comparing black people to the brotherhood of evil mutants? Because that is the funniest shit I’ve heard in months.

Hey guys (It’s Jenn!)

I don’t know if any of you have noticed, but I’m preeeetty much handing this blog over to Jared. (Dunno if it’s permanent or not yet, but for a while at least, this will be his blog.) Soooo, mostly it’s because I’ve started an animal crossing blog that I like a lot more than this one. If you want, you can start following me over there, but I really mostly post AC stuff, so if you don’t like cute animals and happiness, I wouldn’t! 

Thanks!

I guess I’m just really disappointed in tumblr? Like this is the community that prides itself on taking stands and fighting injustice, and a website full of actual pedophiles and rape fetishists marches right up to fuck with us and the response is to just ignore it? You guys will…

4chan has bullied teenagers until they committed suicide. They’ve attacked rape victims, they’ve doxxed and outed trans folk, and they spread child porn, rape porn, and hate crime footage. Most people don’t know about this shit because it doesn’t get picked up by news organizations, because the media doesnt give a shit about a website full of psychopaths. I genuinely believed that we could change that.

As for just wanting it to go away, I’m certain that it will. I’m positive that they’ll lose interest in tumblr, and then go off to a different community that isn’t as supportive and spread their shit there. Is that better? They need to be shut down, and I thought this was a community that would be interested in taking that challenge. Apparently I was wrong, ergo disappointment.

Except that something like 4Chan isn’t gonna be brought down by a flame war. It’s fine be brought down by changing the culture that creates it- through educating people on why the stuff they do is wrong, rallying to increase awareness of these issues, and creating scrutiny. All of these are things that tumblr does.

Nothing good will come off a head to head fight. Change comes from fighting the systems in place, not just bombarding the perpetrators with spam. Again, instead of shaming the victims of their attack, use this as a chance to highlight what’s wrong with the system.

I didn’t say flame war? I specifically mentioned writing to lawmakers and staging demonstrations? And I’m all for changing the culture that facilitates hate, but occasionally hate groups also need to be dealt with. 4chan needs to be dealt with. It’s honestly surprising to me that notch hasn’t been arrested yet.

Re the 4chan “attacks”

I guess I’m just really disappointed in tumblr? Like this is the community that prides itself on taking stands and fighting injustice, and a website full of actual pedophiles and rape fetishists marches right up to fuck with us and the response is to just ignore it? You guys will write to senators and hold demonstrations over the use of the phrase “both genders”, but you won’t even investigate this shit? That’s a little pathetic.

4chan vs tumblr

One questions the tact of using this gif when there is actual fucking baby porn on 4chan.

Is that not common knowledge? Because it really should be. 4chan has had entire threads devoted to baby porn. I honestly cannot stress this enough.
