Tumbles in the Aether
Yes, having a narrative without any LGBTQIAP+ characters in it is queerphobic.

fandomsandfeminism:

Presenting a universe in which LGBTQIAP+ people do not exist is heteronormative and queerphobic. Every time. It is a problem. 

It is a flaw. 

It would be if you were presenting a universe like that, except you’re not actually presenting the whole universe when you write a story, you’re presenting just a fragment of the setting.

Any story can include any person or thing, but to actually be a complete story that you can write down it has to have a beginning, middle, and end, in a finite period of time. So it can only have a finite number of people and things. Definitionally, it must exclude an infinite number of things just to exist as a complete story.

If I have a story about a tongan cis bisexual and her black genderfluid friend that’s mostly into guys, and they play chess all afternoon and talk about interesting things then they go to make a blueberry pie but the materials aren’t in the kitchen so they have to try cooking with alternate materials and it’s tense because they don’t know if it’ll work out or not. Is that a transphobic story? No, there just aren’t any trans people in the story. Is it a story that’s harmful to autistic people (which doesn’t really have a specific word as far as I know)? No, there are just no autistic people in the story. Is it a story that denies the existence of the schizophrenic, the dysthymic, the bulemic, the anorexic? No on all counts. It’s just a story that is about two people I know and that is not about any of the other six people that I know. They’re all real people and they all deserve to have stories told about them, but not every story is actually about all of them. That alone doesn’t make any of the stories flawed.

There has only been five female characters comfirmed playable compared to fifteen male characters.

I’m amazed at those exact numbers because 33% is the point where men will start thinking there’s a majority of women in a group.

In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to enter and complete the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry. She registered under the gender-neutral name of “K.V. Switzer”. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” however, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire Marathon. These photographs taken of the incident made world headlines.

Social Justice Warriors[SJWs] are the new cancer of the internet. They’re a bunch of college-age, American-centric, special snowflakes, who feel the need to dictate anything and everything like self-entitled asshole’s.
Who gave you the position of being the internet police?Who gave you the right to decide what words are acceptable or unacceptable to use?
Who gave you the right to judge someone’s comedy or content as bad and take it away?
Who gave you the right to constrict someone’s creativity(writing, art), because you think that it’s “problematic”?
To add to that, sjws are the most racist shitholes I’ve ever seen.
You complain about racism all the time, yet you’re the one’s who look at nothing but skin color. It doesn’t matter if a character is intelligent, strong-willed, kind, or helpful. If they’re white you automatically peg them as the devil. Lupita Nyong’o won an oscar for best supporting actress and ALL I saw was people being “so happy that a woman of color won the award”. Because it didn’t matter if Lupita was incredibly talented and nailed the shit out of that role, all you assholes focused on was her skin color.
You reduce everyone down to their sexuality or race or gender, without giving a crap about someone’s actual personality or character.
You lump everyone who isn’t white into a single category(POC).
I’d rather be identified by my race, and along with that it’s heritage, and culture, rather than be called 3 ambiguous letters or words. Do you know how ridiculously offensive it is to call a person someone “of color”? Like we’re somehow different from people who are white? Like we need our own tag to segregate us from white people? YOU ARE MOVING SOCIETY BACKWARDS WITH THIS KIND OF SHIT. 
Racism against white people exists; not in the West, but in other parts of the world. White people are not the majority everywhere. You think the world evolves around America? You think every place is as diverse as America? 
Go to Africa. Go to the Middle East. Fuck, go to parts of Asia. Open a history book maybe. SJW’s are actually trying to call Irish people POC, when they are WHITE AS SNOW because they can’t stand the fact that white people have been oppressed in history.
POC’s can be racist against other POC’s. My Arabian boss hates Asians. My black grandfather doesn’t like Mexicans. 
White people are not Satan reincarnated. POC’s are not angels. Get that through your fucking head.
And stop STOP STOP speaking for other races! You’re only making yourself look stupid and like your suffering from an extreme case of white guilt.
Stop trying to pick apart every TV show/song/movie and look for thing you might deem “problematic”.
Go outside.
Get some air.
Stay off the internet.
Talk to actual people. Because most of you have barely any real-world experience and you will be eaten alive with your ridiculous ideologies.
And before anyone says “Well not all sjw’s are like that”, I am going off of the majority of sjws on tumblr. And if I’ve learned anything from sjw’s, it’s that it’s totally fine to judge and generalize the majority. 
( The fact that I have to say that I am a black girl to avoid getting bombarded with comments like “white cishet” just shows how appalling your “movement” has become. )

I don’t think anyone can effectively argue against this person.

That last part though….

The Kickstarter Needs You

Sorry to reblog from the source, but I thought the chain of comments was rather unnecessary. All that needs to be said is that this documentary examines gender inequality and how patriarchy contributes negatively to our society.

This is a feminist issue.

And anyone on Tumblr who’s too close-minded to recognize it as such due to a nonsensical blanketed hatred of men’s issues need to re-evaluate their motives.

THESE ARE REAL AND HORRIBLE MALE ISSUES CAUSED BY THE PATRIARCHY. IF YOURE FEMINIST, THESE SHOULD ANGER YOU. IF YOU’RE NOT, HERES ANOTHER REASON TO SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT. 

have I already reblogged this? don’t give a fuck.

The patriarchy hurts everyone.

I WANNA MENTION THIS BECAUSE EVERY TIME SOMEONE MENTIONS THIS THING ABOUT SUICIDE I FEEL I SHOULD BUT IN

MORE WOMEN ATTEMPT SUICIDE

MORE MEN SUCCEED

Women are more likely to use non-lethal methods such as pills while men tend to use firearms.

Something to keep in mind.

I need feminism because the father of my children thinks his depression is invalid because he is male.

The patriarchy hurts everybody.

I figured most of my Facebook friends would miss out on some of Martin Luther King, Jr’s quotes that are less palatable for complacent America. So I made some aggressive and hard-to-ignore photos to bomb their feed with for today.
