love it when privileged folks screech “HOW ABOUT WE JUST BE NICE TO EVERYONE???”
as if we haven’t tried “nice”
as if we haven’t spent our entire lives bowing our heads, stepping out of the way, biting our tongues
as if we haven’t laughed at jokes that bit at us like sharp edges bc we didn’t want anyone there to stop liking us, because we wanted to be agreeable and pleasant and fun and nice
as if we haven’t taken hundreds of blows with our lips pressed together because to speak up, to say “you’re hurting me, please stop,” wouldn’t be polite or reasonable
as if we haven’t fucking tried nice
That’s why you’re the keeper, Ron.
Keep yapping. You don’t know how to fly this broom.
With Love, for Wizarding Wednesday. :)
Now, there have been a ton of posts on this, and if you’re interested you should definitely check out: stfu-moffat.tumblr.com . It’s an excellent resource including many of his quotes and brilliant commentaries on his era. I’m not here to brand Moffat as a sexist, but take a look at the evidence and make of that what you will.
This isn’t going to be a mere list of sexist events in Moffat’s era. More a personal explanation of why I take such offence at what has happened to Doctor Who since Moffat took over. I get a lot of asks about it, so I thought it may be helpful to finally motivate myself and put my reasoning out there.
Do people who complain about everything being “too PC” realize that they’re the ones going out of their way to be offended by everything? You’re literally getting offended by people trying to not be assholes to each other and consider other people’s feelings…….
Do not even dare appropriate their struggles because it gives you faulty jab at vegans. This has been an issue people have been trying to bring awareness to for decades. I literally never see white people talking about it outside of trying to argue against vegans. POC and their struggles are not props to use at your convenience when it benefits you.
Who do you think slaughters your food animals? Who do you think picks their food? Who do you think raises these animals? Good read on how horribly oppressed and abused slaughter house workers are. You are no better. If you truly care about these people so much, and have the finances and health to do so, why would you continue to eat meat and dairy? Why would you throw money towards corporations who abuse and oppress them? Why would you not do anything you could to help reduce their oppression?
The argument also fails because it misunderstands what veganism is about. It’s about reducing cruelty as far as practical and possible. It’s not about being perfect, it can’t be. We know it isn’t cruelty free, we know migrant workers are oppressed picking our (and your) plants. The best I can do in this situation is not support animal agriculture so that I’m not supporting as many people being oppressed, buy locally when possible, and grow my own food when possible.
Tattoo this to my face.
Patriarchy backfiring on men is not sexism against men.
