there’s this idea that cisgender white males aren’t appreciated by tumblr but people here literally call david karp “daddy” and john green is considered one of the site’s authority figures and one of the most popular blogs is the frogman and nearly all of the celebrities who people on this site idolize fit the above description so
Override’s page is full of speed racer stuff
Ramjet has no page and it is all truth
Backstreet just has a bunch of Backstreet boys lyrics
and wheelie say we must rhyme today
We do not need to be reminded that
- not all cis people are bad
- not all hetero people are bad
- not all men are misogynists
- not all white people are racist
We do need to be reminded that
- trans people need to be protected at all costs
- LGBTQIAP+ people are killed and raped for their sexuality so no, heteros do not need to be in queer only spaces
- Women are not equal to men in society and that’s what intersectional feminism is trying to change
- Whitewashing is a huge problem in both education and the media and supporting/ignoring/excusing that fact is supporting racism
Anonymous asked: Wario, what's your opinion about Anita Sarkeesian stealing artwork? cowkitty[.]net/post/78808973663/you-stole-my-artwork-an-open-letter-to-anita
Wario thinks the most important thing in this situation is that Anita reaches out to resolve the situation with the artist privately; which according to the artist, she has contacted her and it working on a resolution. The artist has also stated that she would not like this to turn into a witchhunt, and that she wants discussion of the topic to remain civil. But those updates are being left out by many in favor of a narrative where Anita is a master thief, silently sneaking into museums to steal artwork from purehearted artists for her evil feminist videos.
Wario likes to imagine Anita is used to googling assets and using images with the assumption they are official art and/or liable for Fair Use; not a good assumption to make when you’re making something of a high quality with a sizable budget like Tropes vs Women, but everyone makes mistakes. Hopefully Anita will take greater care in the future to make sure content is fair use.
It’s always a little disappointing to see someone with a controversial message like Anita make a mistake like this, since it will inevitably get blown several orders of magnitude out of proportion and be used to justify the hate against her. If this same situation involved a male content creator with controversial videos about gaming, it would not even register for most people as a blip on their radar.
Woman arrested for videotaping speed trap while waiting for bus.
Abie, who was referred to by the arresting officers as “The Nigerian Nightmare”, was dragged by her hair to a squad car, but not before suffering bruises that would keep her out of school for a week. Her bike was confiscated, along with her school books and computer.
Once inside the police car, Ikhinmwin said the officer warned her that she would not see any of her belongings, should she press charges against him. Ikhinmwin did anyway.
