Social Wustice

Hm, I left off Wikipedia’s own list of disability related terms with negative connotations when surveying ableist language lists. OK, so by the logic of people who insist that once a word is on a list like that, it’s off limits to everyone no matter how it’s used, these words are out:

  • Crank (Only the word “handle” is acceptable, shitlord!)
  • Epileptic
  • Disabled
  • Patient (What do you mean “Love is patient?” Fuck off with that language!)

What do you mean, some words are only slurs if you use them like that? That’s not how it works!

Waiting for someone to decide that the anime term “super deformed” is ableist.

I simultaneously am tired of receipt blogs, even for obvious jerks, and wish there was such a blog for fuckingrapeculture.

C’est la vie.

In light of what’s happened with SR:

stoppity:

It’s come to my attention that it’s looking less and less likely at Rapunzel was involved in what happened with StopR. While we’d all love to jump to conclusions with her, it’s looking like she genuinely didn’t intend to get involved, nor was she trying to get her hurt.

So in light of everything, I think we all need to back off of her for the time being. It’s becoming more clear that she isn’t responsible for what happened.

I generally assume stories like this are Münchausen by Internet. I’ve been wrong a couple of times, although it’s mostly been because I’ve taken made up stuff at face value as opposed to the other way around. So…yeah, I was skeptical of this story right away, no matter who was involved.

Students who still have a lot ahead of them. Students like me, who still have dreams, goals, and students who still aim for achievements. But because of this tragedy, it all faded away. 

I bow and salute to the brave students who saved the lives of others and sacrificed themselves. They are heroes. They are people who deserves a lot better than awards. They deserve to be in Heaven, a place full of happiness and there will be no more sufferings. I also pray for the lives of the family and the people involved in this accident and specially the souls of these heroes.

I hope that the students who were saved by these mighty students will live their lives to the fullest, achieve their dreams and goals and love their family more. I also wish that they will live being inspired by the heroes who saved their lives. Please do so.

And for the captain, my middle finger salutes you. Live well. In guilt. Thank you.

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

imageOh 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.

So…anyone have experience getting septum piercings?
