Social Wustice
So, an Indian activist group (of mainly women) took the ALS ice bucket challenge and made a rice bucket challenge for hungry people in India. Upon seeing a post about it, I thought it was pretty cool. But the comments were what you could expect. "Beautiful Indian women!" "This I could get behind" "so much better than that stupid white people thing". Like 1. You sound like gross fetishists. Stop. 2. You can support this group while still recognizing the the original campaign is important.

This just in: only white people get ALS.

Oooo, fun game! Let me try!

Haha, look at all those dudes!
(Seriously, the first critical videos I remember taking off were narrated by women.)

Wasn’t slam poetry associated with black people at some point? Now it seems to be associated with white women complaining about Little Mermaid dolls and bragging about writing Potterotica. How appropriative.

Tumblr Law: The moment something becomes inexplicably popular, Tumblr will find a reason to call it problematic, even if they have to make shit up.

This is more likely to happen if we’re dealing with something created by white men, but I think white women are just as likely to get thrown under the bus.

"Cancer/mental illness/disability affects rich and poor alike."

Uh, no, it doesn’t. Rich people can afford the treatments and accommodations for those things. Poor people cannot. Get the fuck outta here with that classist shit.

Not to mention a higher proportion of disabled people are in poverty and people in manual jobs are more likely to become disabled, there is a class element to disability that cannot be ignored.

THANK YOU.

Yeah, all that class privilege really, really, really helped out Robin Williams, didn’t it? 

Just like it helped out Marilyn Monroe, Sylvia Plath, Zelda Fitzgerald, Alexander McQueen, Isabella Blow

Or any of the people I know who personally suffer from depression, self-harm and suicidal thoughts the same way I do, despite coming from far more affluent background then I do.

Terminal cancer is terminal cancer moron: didn’t see Patrick Swayze being able to buy his way out of it.  Or Superman being able to buy himself a new spine. 

Shut the fuck up. 

Sorry if posts show up a million times; I’m having an issue with XKit/my computer mouse, but probably mostly the latter. I’ll deal with it soon.

Now I lay me down to sleep; it’s exhausting calling out cis sheep and that is what I’ve done all day, so deliver me, O Lord, I pray, from any stupid cishet man who claims I hurt those who’re trans*— I’m not cis, don’t mislabel me, my gender’s defined by my anatomy.

in case anyone was wondering, this is the definition of cis. 

Holy crap
