HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!!!
i need help
Look at all these pasty cisgendered ultrahetero penis-havers:
And this is just a fraction of our diverse group - in fact women and other minorities far outnumber the cis white men. We have every POC, gender, and sexuality possible in our ranks. So yeah, if you all could stop erasing our identities because it’s convenient for you, that would be great, thanks
i live for this.
Theres only one white mod on this blog and they’re a woman.
no you are all white because the social justice warriors said you’re white ok guys
Lesson: most Anti SJW/RJs are minorities. So if they’re rejecting your “activism”, then there’s a BIG problem.
Don’t Be That MRA
I dig this.
OH MY GOD YES
YES YES SKLFUYDSIJYES
this is actually really great because we need more MRA’s calling bullshit within the movement instead of getting all sooky when people say ‘UGH I HATE MRA’S.’
I want to post this everywhere omg omg
The Keystone pipeline not being approved would be worse for the environment and opposition to it is irrational. The lucrative tar sands oil being extracted in Canada will go to market no matter what, everyone accepts that fact.
If the oil doesn’t get transported via keystone it will either go to the US market transported by railroad, or go to the Chinese market transported by ship. Either option would be worse for the environment, because transporting oil by rail causes more CO2 emissions than pipelines and also causes more accidents than pipelines, and transporting the oil by boat to China would also cause more CO2 emissions and additionally China doesn’t refine oil as cleanly as the US so that would create even more CO2 emissions on top of that.
Large scale green power won’t be realistically feasible for decades and opposition to the keystone pipeline shows there is a large part to the modern environmental movement that is irrational and unrealistic.
Not all of us are. I’m Egalitarian, for example. And there’s nothing erong with a feminist, as long as you aren’t rude about it.

cutting myself with all that edgy, anon.
-the italian one
I don’t expect white feminist to be anything more than white feminist thats their place I don’t expect every celebrity to have an excess of knowledge on global politics i don’t expect the average person to have taken a socio-political theory class I don’t expect them to know what systematic oppression is I don’t expect them to know what the A is LGBTQIA stands for I just live life and hope I can help teach someone something rather than get angry they don’t know everything
i noticed this too. the worst part is that in both scenes, they’re having to argue with their captain to do their job. A+ characterization of kirk right there ugh
How nice that you all are ignoring context. Wonderful.
Uhura is asking this after they’ve been shot at multiple times by Klingons who are clearly bent on killing the lot of them, and have just been cornered by them. Kirk is afraid that they are going to kill her on sight without letting her have the chance to do her job. Before this point, he had every intention of letting her do her job (“Lieutenant, how’s your Klingon?” “It’s rusty, but it’s good.” “Good, you’re coming too.”). He does not want to risk her life on the off-chance that the Klingons will listen. He is doing his duty as captain and attempting to keep everyone safe, as well as being his usual stubborn protective self (which he does for EVERYONE he cares about). He is being very Jim Kirk in this scene.
You are also ignoring the context of the conversation itself.
Uhura: They are ordering us to land. Captain, they’re gonna wanna know why we’re here. And they’re gonna torture us, question us, and they’re gonna kill us.
Kirk: So we come out shooting.
[Uhura rises from her seat and goes over to Kirk]
Uhura: We are outnumbered, outgunned. There’s no way we survive if we attack first. You brought me here because I speak Klingon, then let me speak Klingon.
You are deliberately manipulating us into believing that Kirk is shutting down Uhura’s agency and that she is pleading with him to regain it. This is not true. Jim does not want to risk the life of a valued crew-member and one of his dear friends on the off-chance that the Klingons won’t kill them on sight. This has nothing to do with sexism, and cutting out the context of this scene is a shitty and manipulative thing to do.
As for Carol’s scene, she is not actually addressing Kirk directly, but Bones. This is the scene where Bones’ arm got stuck in that torpedo. Kirk is not even physically there.
Kirk: Dr. Marcus, can you disarm it?Carol: I’m trying. I’m trying.
Bones: Jim, get her the hell out of here!
Carol: No. If you beam me back, he dies! Just let me do it!
[Carol quickly works to deactivate the torpedo]
Kirk is in no way trying to keep Carol from doing her job. She is attempting to save Bones’ life, and Kirk is very willing to let her do it. He is trusting that she will be able to deactivate the rocket. He is placing his best friend’s life into her hands: if that’s not agency, I don’t know what is.
So shut the hell up and stop being deliberately manipulative and trying to force victimization and a lack of agency on two very talented, very capable women who were not belittled or looked down on, and by no means did either occur at the hands of Jim Kirk.
Sometimes it seems like those type of people only dedicate half their brain to actually paying attention to what’s going on around them while the other half is constantly brainstorming creative new ways to get offended over nothing.
This is probably the last time I’m willing to talk about social justice issues on this site since honestly I am getting tired of it. I thought tumblr had a queer community accepting people of all sexualities/genders. But honestly whenever I try to reach or communicate with the trans or non binary people here on tumblr I just get comforted with bigotry. If no one hates cis people because of their gender identity then how can you excuse this? I know cis people aren’t discriminated for being cisgender in real life and transphobia and hate crimes against trans people is a real serious thing but really? I understand people that are frustrated because they have to deal with cis people that are assholes, but being an asshole has nothing to do with your gender or sexuality. What you are doing is a fucking broad uncalled generalization.
Why is it so hard not to judge each other for their sexuality/gender?Why do you invalidate someone’s struggles purely because they’re cis? Fucking dare to tell my friends to suck up parental abuse because cishets have nothing to complain about and aren’t allowed to be offended or feel hurt.What would your family feel about you because they are probably cis scum in your eyes?
You are fighting fire with fire, you aren’t accomplishing anything for trans/queer acceptance. You’re not fighting for rights or understanding of queer people. You’re all just making yourself look like a close-minded ass. To be honest? You failed me, as a trans person to feel comfortable in your queer-friendly safe space.
This is my general opinion I want to give out to the public. I’m probably going to get hate out of this but this is what had bothered me for so long.
