baffling how much of this site is just conservative protestantism with a gay hat

you know what i’m in just enough of a bad mood that i’m ready to nail my grievances to the church door so let’s fucking go

  • black and white morality wherein anyone who doesn’t believe/think/live exactly as I do is a dirty sinner Problematic and probably a predatory monster
  • everyone is a sinner Problematic but true believers people who activist the right way according to my worldview are still better than everyone else, and I will act in accordance to this belief in my own superiority to let everyone else know I’m better than them because I found Jesus am the most woke
  • casual and fucking omnipresent equations of womanhood with softness/goodness/purity/nurturing to remind every woman who isn’t/doesn’t want to be any of those things that they’re doing it wrong
  • aggressive desexualization (particularly of women’s sexuality, to the point where it may as well not exist at all) accompanied by pastels [not a criticism directed ace ppl having a right to sex-free content and spaces but specifically targeted at a wider problem resulting from the previous point]
  • YOU’RE VALID AND JESUS LOVES YOU and neither of these platitudes achieves a goddamn thing
  • historical context is for people who care about nuance and we don’t have time for either (see: black and white morality)
  • lots of slogans and quotes and nice little soundbites to memorize but does anybody actually study the source material with a critical eye to make their own informed analysis
  • the answer is no
  • I’ve been to bible study groups don’t @ me I know what the fuck I’m talking about
  • Good Christians™ Nice Gays™ don’t fraternize with/let themselves be influenced by non-Christians those terrible queers
  • all the media one consumes must be ideologically pure or it will surely harm the children
  • it is Our Sacred Duty to protect the children from Everything, thus ensuring their innocence/purity/etc until such time as they are idk probably 25 years old
  • literally just “think of the children” moral panic y’all can fuckin miss me with that
  • people who don’t conform to the dominant thinking WILL be excommunicated/driven from the social group, and any wrong treatment they suffer will be seen as a justified consequence of their wrong thinking
  • I Saw Goody Proctor With The Devil And She Had A Bad Steven Universe Headcanon

Thank you for breaking it down like that because so many of us have been saying it but to see a play by play breakdown comparison is just…Thank you.

  • sipping tea and judging people as a group bonding activity

oh, man, speaking as a queer Christian who gets regular tumblr flashbacks to my childhood in the Bible Belt, YES

-belief that small snippets of text can be analyzed out context to understand the whole work/ judge the whole person
-Desire for moral choices to be easy/ black-and-white leads to belief that it is possible to find a one-size-fits all answer to every situation
-Literal, rather than literary analysis, with weird fixation on etymological roots that have nothing to do with source material
-Belief that there is “one true interpretation” that is self-evident and will be understood by everyone encountering the same material regardless of background
-Overwhelming, internalized sense of culpability for other people’s actions/integrity/souls
-Overwhelming, internalized sense of personal guilt
-Pressure to evangelize aggressively
-Tendency to value broad ideals before individual needs
-Hostility towards coexistence/tolerance/neutrality
-Hostility towards lack of consensus in viewpoint
-Knowledge as contamination
-Guilt/contamination by proximity
-Fixation on the sexual as uniquely dirty/sinful
-Belief in “thought crimes”
-Argumentation via appeal to higher authority/feelings of revulsion rather than internal, verbalizeable logic
-“conversations” that are actually stealth soapboxes because one side isn’t actually interested in listening
-“polite requests” that are actually commands because “no” is not considered an acceptable answer
-in-group language
-virtue-signaling and hostility towards the outgroup
-gatekeeping
-communities strongly built around the idea of being the world’s underdog
-appropriation of other people’s persecution/victimization
-treating the concept of oppression like a trophy
-glorification/fetishization of victimhood

Trailblazer Firearms LifeCard .22 LR

A compact folding single shot pistol designed to be as discrete as possible for concealed carry. It’s an interesting little gun but it already has its share of critics. Considering it is a single-shot only .22 LR, it’s already outgunned by a 2-shot derringer, even more so by your traditional carry options like a snub-nosed revolver or sub-compact semi-auto. You can check out the specs and manual in the link; MSRP is about $399. (GRH)

I would like it for like 200$

You know, not everyone operates on the assumption that oppression is some exclusive club that everyone is trying to get into.

Gatekeeping oppression is a weird phenomenon.

The people who say this unironically are doing so because they want to down play someone else’s problems as not oppression or not important so that they can keep hegemony over the victim hierarchy. 

Legal Immigration Under Attack

thespectacularspider-girl:

catoinstitute:

The RAISE Act would slash the number of immigrants by about 50 percent over the next decade by eliminating several categories of legal immigration…

Earlier this week, Senators Tom Cotton (R-AK) and David Perdue (R-GA) joined President Trump at the White House to promote their new immigration bill.

The senators claim that the RAISE Act would restore legal immigration levels to their historical norms. This statement is so misleading that it borders on outright deception.

The RAISE Act would reduce the per capita rate of immigration to the lowest amount since just after the Great Depression. Immigration would fall to a rate three times less than the historical average and 11 times less than the historical high.

The purpose of the RAISE Act is to restrict low-skilled immigration in order to raise the wages of American workers. The Cotton-Perdue bill not only will not do that, it also would not create a skills-based immigration system and is not a credible bargaining chip in any future negotiations in Congress.

… so what’s the problem here?  They’re specifically trying to increase the working class’ income through legal means.  Wage suppression only helps the 1%.

This is why twitter is garbage for meaningful discussion and why tumblr users get away with taking one bit out of context to virtue masturbate with lol


The initial tweet is part of a series of tweets where the dude is REFLECTING on his own personal views and feelings of inadequacy despite knowing full well a man’s masculine worth should never be measured with violence. Lamenting that, despite knowing it’s wrong, the question still arrives in his mind. He FLAT OUT SAYS that he knows he’s wrong, that the feelings are wrong and that he doesn’t want any of it.

This Lana Del Dumbass took that, someone’s genuine thought and feeling and twisted it into.. whatever the fuck kind of virtue signaling bullshit this is. Using examples of shit where the vast majority is never ever going to be in the situation of, as if anyone reblogging this would leap up and do something about it were they in that situation. This easily digestible but ultimately empty and generic “Ugh, PATRIARCHY/MEN, mirite?”

Like, does anyone reblogging this even get what’s going on? Do they know the context, even know who he is? Or are they just going “well I dunno, but fuck the patriarchy, REBLOG”? Do any of them even understand the supposed connection?

Like good fucking god, that’s the problem here

Someone had a thought, shared it

and now this post, with over 10,000 notes, is celebrating taking PART of that thought and mocking it for existing, for not just being the same empty, approved “correct thought”

People always say we should be critical, we should always re-evaluate ourselves

but after seeing someone being critical and re-evaluating themselves the response is to rip it from context and call it wrong

SAN FRANCISCO—In an effort to reduce the number of unprovoked hostile communications on the social media platform, Twitter announced Monday that it had added a red X-mark feature verifying users who are in fact perfectly okay to harass. “This new verification system offers users a simple, efficient way to determine which accounts belong to total pieces of shit whom you should have no qualms about tormenting to your heart’s desire,” said spokesperson Elizabeth James, adding that the small red symbol signifies that Twitter has officially confirmed the identity of a loathsome person who deserves the worst abuse imaginable and who will deliberately have their Mute, Block, and Report options disabled. “When a user sees this symbol, they know they’re dealing with a real asshole who has richly earned whatever mistreatment they receive, including profanity, body-shaming, leaking of personal information, and relentless goading to commit suicide. It’s really just a helpful way of saying to our users, ‘This fuck has it coming, so do your worst with a clear conscience and without fear of having your account suspended.’” At press time, Twitter reassuredly clarified that the red X was just a suggestion and that all users could still be bullied with as little recourse as they are now.

Y’know, I wouldn’t even be surprised at this point.  Onion or no, this could be a real thing.

what a beautiful day to remember that bisexual women in relationships with men + bisexual men in relationships with women have every right to attend pride events with their significant other and the concept of ‘straight passing privilege’ should be left in the trash where it belongs

“straight passing privilege” is a lot of word wastage when you can just say “closet privilege”

imagine being worth two and a half million dollars and thinking ‘eat the rich’-type posts are relatable

To be fair, most people’s grandparents who have saved/invested even halfway competently are worth 2-3M

What fucking grandparents do you have my man

Hey man. If I’m gonna eat the rich, I’m starting a hell of a lot higher than the single digit millionaires.

A million is nowhere near as much as a billion lmao hes wealthy but he’s not disgustingly rich

listen. I don’t think y'all can comprehend how much MORE a billion is than a million. A billion is a THOUSAND times more than a million. That makes billionaires THOUSANDS of times richer than millionaires. I agree with buckyayo50. If I’m gonna eat the rich as sure as hell am not going after some 2.5 million dollar man first thing. There’s MUCH bigger fish to fry.

dude 2.5 million dollars is more than enough for me to live on for the rest of my life

are you just gonna give him a pass cause he says the right things or fucking what?

2.5 mil is pretty disgustingly rich for a dude whose claim to fame is being an irritating cunt on a 90s sci-fi show and utterly irritating gobshite the rest of his life.

2.5 million puts Wil Wheaton within the top 5% of Americans.

The guy is well within the top 5% of wealth in the nation.  He has no fucking right to talk about ‘eating the rich’.

A Form of Rape That Isn't Rape, by David Futrelle.

You know, earlier today I heard that John the Other didn’t care about female rape victims, something which I found terrible. (It seemed like he was trying to say that feminists had pissed him off so much that he finds it hard to sympathize with feminist issues.) And now there’s this…

Finding it hard to sympathise with female rape victims because their existence is used as a figurative blunt object to beat you into psychological submission with by a bunch of politically empowered nutjobs over a period of decades isn’t the same thing as not caring about male rape victims on any given Tuesday just because you’re awake.
