You find yourself in a group of people standing next to a cliff.
Suddenly, someone pushes another person, sending them over the edge. Thankfully, the victim is able to hold on to the edge rather than fall to their death, but nobody makes a move to help them or stop the perpetrator. Everyone, including yourself, simply stands there watching.
Angry that they’ve been pushed, angry that nobody is helping them as they struggle not to fall, the victim screams, ‘Is anybody going to fucking help me??’
That gets everyone’s attention. ‘Why are you mad at me?’ one person asks. ‘I didn’t push you.’
'Nobody is going to want to help you with an attitude like that.'
'You're just as bad as him.'
Nobody makes a move to help.
The victim screams in frustration, their fingers slipping. ‘You’ve got to be fucking joking!’ they shout as they lose their grip.
'You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.' You say as you walk away.
Welcome to the anti-sj/’real justice’ movement."
some of the anti sj will step on that person’s fingers too because they think they’re being “too harsh”
J. R. R. Tolkien on escapism in “The Lord of the Rings” (x)
“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape?…If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”

DO NOT DISMISS A SOMETHING A CHILD IS PROUD OF. LOOK AT IT. POINT SOMETHING OUT AND TELL THEM YOU LOVE IT. IF A CHILD DRAWS YOU A RAINBOW, TELL THEM YOU LOVE HOW IT HAS RED. THEY WILL THINK “WOW. IT DOES HAVE RED. THEY LOVE HOW I PUT RED IN IT. I PUT RED IN IT. AND THEY NOTICED.” MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD KNOWS YOU ARE PROUD OF THEM.
somebody doesn’t have to look completely androgynous in order to identify as genderqueer or nonbinary. somebody doesn’t have to look masculine or butch in order to identify as male. somebody doesn’t have to look feminine at all in order to identify as female. you can wear a dress and makeup everyday and still ID as male. gender expression is not the same as gender identity
Slurs are violent. They enact violence. They bring up violence. Slurs are used to dehumanize people, against their will.
Jesus fucking christ, It’s a fantasy novel; key word FANTASYy’all need to calm the fuck down. I try to ignore this BS as much as I can but this post is pissing me off. Allow me to clarify; I have yet to…
Shut up. It’s a book; he can quite literally whatever the fuck he wants.
Stop getting offended over nothing. End of story.
Whoops, I guess I forgot the third aspect of “you need to shut up”, which is apparently, “getting offended over nothing”.
Because the rules of life state quite clearly: if something is in a book, no one is allowed to form their own thoughts about it. Nope. No thoughts. You must accept everything that is in a book without any semblance of engagement.
Also, apparently one of the most popular fantasy franchises that exists in multiple formats=”nothing”.
You do realize that I was responding to someone who has neither read the books OR seen the show? But still took the time to write out a few paragraphs telling ME to shut up…? So technically it was brother-mouse who was truly “getting offended over nothing”?
Well, it just goes to show that this is what happens without fail when someone rather specifically asks me what I think about something. A resounding chorus of “it doesn’t really matter WHY, you just need to shut up.”
all i wanna do is *gunshot* *gunshot* *cash register noise* and overthrow the capitalist hegemony bringing about a glorious communist utopia
