my school put me in charge of the posters for LGBTQ acceptance and i kind of just
great job, you just alienated every LGBTQ kid in your school who doesn’t give a crap about your shitty fandoms just so you could make a fucking tumblr post
hope you feel proud of yourself for indulging in your fandom rather than actually making posters that everyone rather than a select few people will actually understand!
No. Stop. Stop insulting someone’s efforts to aid the LGBTQ community. Shut your fucking mouth and think for a minute.
When I was in high school, I was the president of our Gay-Straight Alliance. We tried everything to get new members and to gain support for years, but even in my senior year, we were still referred to “the gay club” and received no support from the school whatsoever.
To run a school club, you need support.
Harry Potter happens to be an extremely popular series. Pitch Perfect as well. Every time my club advertised, we would try to include everyone, suggesting that people visit, maybe even once. But by using popular media like that, you not only emphasize your point in a way people will enjoy, you do it in a way people will understand.
In no way is this a form of alienation. Not at all. You’re not saying “If you don’t like this fandom, you can’t join our club.”
FOR THE LOVE OF CHEESE, THEY’RE SAYING “DON’T BE AN ASSHAT BY NOT ACCEPTING PEOPLE WHO ARE DIFFERENT.”
So please, refrain from demonizing someone who was doing all they can to support the LGBTQ community.

"Fear me. I’ve killed all of them [time lords]. Yep, you’ve defeated us. Me, my lovely friends here. And last—but definitely not least—the TARDIS matrix herself. A living consciousness you ripped out of this very control room and locked up into a human body. And look at her. […] It’s never enough. You’ve forced the TARDIS into a body so she’d burn out safely, a very long way away from this control room. A flesh body can’t hold the TARDIS matrix and live. Look at her body, House. […] I think you should be very very careful about what you let back into this control room. You took her from her home. And now she’s back in her box again. And she’s free. Look at my girl. Look at her go. Bigger on the inside! See, House. That’s your problem. Size of a planet but inside you are just so small. Finish him off, girl.”
Looks like all our chances for survival rest with you, Mr. Haddock. You and that little book.
I won’t leave the forge to kill a dragon, honest.
Just gonna leave this here…
dont forget in the states :
100% of men can be drafted
0% of women can be drafted.
just gonna leave these here for you guys who are getting pissy over my ‘white privilege’ post
Now, I’m not all anti-social justice, but you certainly can’t ignore these facts.
But let’s take a guess as to why women generally are prohibited from serving on the front lines in warzones, and why they are discouraged from working in the industrial sector? Patriarchal expectations of appropriate roles for men and women based on gender.
Who commits the majority of homicides? Men.
Why are men more likely to commit suicide instead of seeking help for their problems? It’s those pesky patriarchal gender roles again, equating emotions with femininity and therefore weakness, which discourages men from talking about their problems.
As for the custody thing, the majority of custody decisions are agreements made between both parents, which again, are probably overdetermined by patriarchal assumptions about gender that paint women as being more nurturing and therefore better parents than men.
So, although the person who made this clearly wanted to argue that male privilege doesn’t exist, what they actually did was make a pretty good graphic illustrating the ways in which patriarchal expectations and structures within a society hurt men as well as women, which, since feminism is actually aimed at dismantling the patriarchy is why men also need feminism.
