Reblogging? Don’t you mean APPROPRIATING?
I initially thought this post about why John Lennon was problematic was by Your Fave is Problematic, but it’s actually by The Rouge Feminist. I’m posting about it anyway because it’s pretty laughable and a good example of just why I can’t stand YFIP style posts.
First of all, there actually are a lot of solid points in the post:
All shitty things and worth talking about. But I guess that wasn’t enough, so now TRF had to move on to pulling shit out of her ass like
Oh no! The feels!
Oh my God. What’s the point of making a post of this if you aren’t going to bother seeing if a song’s a cover or not?
…You can’t appropriate instruments. That’s not how music works. By that logic, only white people can play pianos.
Seriously, the post should have ended a long time ago. I don’t understand the point of listing out every tiny, perceived crime a person has committed, especially when there are inarguably fucked up things that they’ve done.
I find the tag “tatertunes” really cute.
It was either that or “Potatunes.” It was a tough call.
I just figured I’d make my random musical posts easier for people to find/ignore since they’re usually pretty irrelevant. I don’t want this blog to be super depressing at all times so tatertunes.
Because complaining about words is easier than researching ADA laws….

Well done, you have correctly identified ableist language.
Now can you please call out welfare “reforms”, scrounger rhetoric and disabled hate crime as ableist too, or would that require actual compassion and effort?
I kind of feel like apologizing for not writing any of my more in depth posts in a while, but I scarcely feel that guilty about it. I just feel a bit bad about it because writing’s my thing, but my focus isn’t super great right now. I’m trying to line up a lot of appointments that I keep putting off and I just find the whole thing super frustrating.
I think I’ll be with it again soon. Or at least I hope so because this shit is boring.
