The funniest thing about Whedon being so anti-GG is the fact that he created Firefly, which starred Adam Baldwin as Jayne Cobb. AKA, the man who started the gamergate hashtag.

Him being against GG, I have no problem with in the sense that I don’t feel rage, only sadness. Lots of people are because of the biased stories about it and they think since it’s the news, it isn’t a lie. Him comparing a fucking internet battle to the goddamn KKK and completely ignoring minorities in GG, I take issue with.

I don’t care if you wanna speak out about something you think is wrong, just do it in an intelligent way that doesn’t do either of the following:

a) assume only a stereotype of what you’re mad about is all that exists

b) erase or ignore those who don’t fit the stereotype because it’s inconvenient for you

c) compare something that has not once led to the dehumanization or oppression of a people to one of the biggest groups who have done that, what the fuck is wrong with you, your mother needs to wash your mouth out with soap and make you write an essay on what and who the KKK is and why they are not even in the same universe as GG.

This Gamergate = KKK narritive is nothing new really.

Seems to be a lot of people’s go to for discrediting the movement.

It’s frankly fucking disgusting, both in terms of the comparrison itself, but it devalues the fact that we HAVE minorities with us and it’s insulting to them. Not to mention the KKK was a more serious issue.

That’s dumb. People are dumb. Why are they so fucking dumb?

Because most people refuse to take the extra step and look up things themselves. You do not make statement you can’t back up and expect people to be okay with it.

People do that all the time, though, and they’re not only getting away with it, but getting others to believe it.

self diagnosing is so hard because everytime you’re like “maybe I am mentally ill” theres also a big part of you going “nah you’re probably just a naturally lazy/nasty/disgusting/useless person trying to find an excuse for your behavior” because of the institutionalized ableism that runs through everything

So go to the doctor and get an actual diagnosis?

Why don’t poor people just buy more money?

Tumblr: where being disabled is a fashion statement and getting your feels validated online is more important then getting specialised treatment and all disabled people who are legally diagnosed are just privileged classist pieces of shit and none of this is ableism in any way
