Ask me anything
Pictures and videos people take or share in private are NOT a free-for-all to be shared. The fact that someone stole them is a crime. It is harassment and we should not tolerate it. Peoples private sex lives are no one of your god damned business and you are NOT ENTITLED to see anyone’s body if they did not consent to it. Full stop.
Busy weekend. Gotten a lot done. Played a lot of Diablo 3 as well.
It’s fun to play games again with a video card that can handle them being pretty as well as fun.
“ If you deliberately seek out any of these images, you are directly participating in the violation not just of numerous women’s privacy but also of their bodies. These images - which I have not seen and which I will not look for - are intimate, private moments belonging only to the people who appear in them and who they have invited to see them. To have those moments stolen and broadcast to the world is an egregious act of psychic violence which constitutes a form of assault.
The people sharing these images are perpetuating an ongoing assault. The people gleefully looking at them are witnessing and enjoying an ongoing assault. When you have been asked by victims of a crime like this not to exacerbate the pain of that crime and you continue to do so anyway, you are consciously deciding that your enjoyment, your rights and perhaps even just your curiosity are more important than the safety and dignity of the people you’re exploiting. ”
Jabroni guy here, hope y’all are having a good time making fun of a mentally ill kid for… for what, exactly? making a few joke posts on a forum that came out harsher than expected? Being a little too aspie to strictly realize when something i’m typing is ridiculous or not? I’m not even doing any damage, sit down and concentrate on more important shit than one fucking assburger, smh.
Oh for christ’s sake. Again, mental illness does not = everyone has to put up with your bratty, god awful behavior. It is not carte blanche to be an asshole to everyone. And waving around your mental illness flag every time someone takes issue with your bullshit does nothing but actually harm mentally ill people because it suggests we can’t control ourselves or our behavior.
So for that, fuck you.
Edit: Wait, why are we treating autism like it’s a mental illness on par with, say, schizophrenia or bipolar disorder or something?
These five people have many things in common. They all, for example, are mammals, Americans, eaters of food, breathers of air, and giant abnosome dorks in the best possible way. But there are three specific things they have in common that are the reason for this post:
1. They are all considered “black” (despite three of them being of mixed race).
2. They are all my friends.
3. In being 1 and 2, they do not represent a fucking “get out of racism free” card for me, and in fact, mean that I must hold myself to a HIGHER standard in awareness of privilege, awareness of how I am affected by and affect institutionalized racism, and mean that I am obligated to actively push back against the things in our society that aren’t just abstracts, but fucking hurt my friends!
Friends are not fucking trading cards. Collecting 10 PoC does not grant you Absolute Immunity to accusations of <+9 Racism.
If they’re not trading cards, why are you posting their pictures as if they were? “Hey, guys, I have black friends! Look at my black friends! Aren’t they so cool?”
More importantly, you should not be using your friends to show how Enlightened you are as a White Person who is Aware of Privilege. There is nothing factually incorrect about point three, but look at what you are saying:
- A person who has black friends may still be racist. Yes, good. But then…
- Because you specifically have black friends, you hold yourself to a higher standard, blah blah blah, look at how great you are.
- Your black friends mean that society’s racism is real for you, not an abstract concept like it is for all those other white people.
So even as you’re claiming not to engage in tokenism, you’re engaging in tokenism. Even as you’re telling us how wrong it is to use “I have a black friend!” to deflect accusations of racism, you’re using it for tumblr street cred. Furthermore, much like your assertion that you totally feel LGBTQIA people’s pain, despite identifying as cis and straight, you are implying that having black friends gives you a special understanding of racism. And you’re purporting to educate your readers by doing all of this. That doesn’t seem very aware to me.
The timing of this post, on the other hand, does make you seem “aware”…but not in the way that you’d like. It’s extremely disingenuous to post about how you’re Not Like Other White People while something like Ferguson is going on, Andy. This is not okay.
Projects projects. I don’t want to do too much, but hey, I have finances in order so why not work on something else.
Re-arranged bedroom furniture, washing clothing and all that. Planning on folding everything and putting it away accordingly. This has been a productive weekend so far.
