honestly, tumblr is so quick to discuss oppressions and then turn right around and make jokes about other marginalized groups and say it’s not a big deal. this is particularly evident in jokes about the south, where it’s okay to make jokes about southern people being uneducated and poor, or even make jokes about incest with regards to the south, and use ignorance of some southerners as an excuse. it’s gross and ridiculous.

I think you’ve talked about this before… if so do you have links to the posts it would be okay to reblog or remember the tag you put them in and I can look myself?

i have posted about this a few times but i don’t think i tagged it with anything and have no idea how to find the posts again. i’m glad though that my legacy is “angry southern blogger”

oh sorry owen, i didn’t mean to say i think of you that way. i just asked because if you know where the posts were your words would be way more well-said and like… relevant to you than mine. thank you for responding anyways owen

I’m calling this crap out. How is this a fair standard to hold people to? Counselors are licensed professionals who spend years studying psychology, not kids online trying to maintain positive attitudes, often against REALLY difficult circumstances. How are sad teens supposed to know how to approach this kind of thing?

Maybe this is just a joke but it’s tiring watching grown-ass adults complain about kids trying to look out for each other. Cringe all you want but grow up about it and keep your petty grouchiness to yourselves

Friends who reblogged this - you can do better

It has been brought to my attention that “Gay Rights” is limiting the scope of this community. I meant to say LGBTQ+ Rights. Where you see “Gay Rights” in my Marina Silva post please substitute “LGBTQ+ Rights”

Thanks

I can’t believe this is still going around. But somewhere along the line, someone took out the link to buy it, which I guess is why they stopped selling. This shirt is actually available for sale, and buying it gives me money, so you should do that. For America.

Our ability to judge is not for us to raise our chins and look down on others as we ignore our own faults.

Our ability to judge is for us to recognize when others need help and to offer a warm hand for them if they were to ever look for someone who treats them as a human regardless of their mistakes.

When someone is abandoned for their flaws, how do you expect them to change?
Look at every single stranger kindly. Remind them of their Humanity.

Listening to the timbre of the conversations at the Dane County Farmers Market, one of the largest in the country, you’d think the topic was vaccination or Gaza. “What exactly is in this scone?” “Are your emus happy? How much space do they have to roam free?” “When you say ‘flour’ on the label, what kind of flour is that?”

Yet food pantries remain full of the same canned pumpkin and expired boxed meals they always have. Obese people are shamed and told what to eat, while people deemed skinny enough to have an eating disorder are also shamed for not taking care of their “health.” There is a serious disconnect here that should tell anyone who’s paying attention that this is not about justice or health in any form––it is about vanity.

When asking the server how the animal being served was prepared, no one seems to wonder whether that server has basic health insurance or whether that server is affected by the fact that the restaurant industry has one of the highest rates of sexual harassment and lowest rates of pay. When waxing poetic about the “salt of the Earth” farmers from which they buy their unpasteurized milk, no one seems to worry that an estimated 10 percent of American farm workers are children. When pearl-clutching over the things we “don’t know” about GMOs, as Kavin pointed out, no one seems to be concerned about their presence in groceries found at Price Rite––only products sold at Whole Foods.

If you are not as concerned about the people handing you your food in the restaurant as you are about the pigs on the farm where it was grown, your approach is classist….If you start telling someone all about your new trendy diet or asking them about theirs without knowing if they have an eating disorder that may be triggered by your prattle, your approach is ableist. If you tsk-tsk at people who are overweight for what they are eating and claim you’re concerned about their health, yet you’re not actively campaigning to make healthy food more accessible and affordable, your approach is sickening and I don’t want you in my activism. —Skepchick | Food is for White Liberals What Sex Is For The Religious Right (via brutereason)

people say ‘I love you’ in a lot of different ways

'eat something'

'buckle up'

'get some sleep'

'here have my fries'

'Im gonna draw you something'

'it's okay, I'll pay'
