My biggest personal problem with everything that’s come out of gamergate is the fact that suddenly it’s a bad thing to be a gamer. I keep seeing posts like “if you introduce yourself to me as a gamer I will sanitize the hand you just shook” and “if you’re a gamer you’re dead to me.”

Excuse me? I’m a gamer. I consume video games as my primary form of entertainment, there’s not exactly another term for it. Furthermore, I have spent the better part of my 24 years on this planet struggling to be accepted as a gamer, simply because of my gender. Now, something that I have embraced as a positive aspect of my personality (when others have seen it as negative because it’s “unfeminine,”) has been labelled negative by my primary online community and many of my friends. 

"But River!" you cry, "You’re a woman, we’re not talking about you! We’re talking about those asshat neckbeards from reddit and 8chan!" I DON’T CARE. I don’t care. Whatever the original intent was behind it, feminist gamers like myself, who have been working for years to break down the stereotype of the "fake geek girl" and promoting games that positively portray women, have gotten caught in the crossfire. Kindly stop that shit.

I’ll probably start saying spook just to piss people off. They might call me a self hating racist lol

Sppook spook spook spook

Spook, Spooky Spooky Skeletons.

Spook is a racial slur, I don’t…

Slurs are not oppressive because they are offensive, they are oppressive  because slurs by nature of being slurs draw upon certain power dynamics  to remind their target of his/her/their vulnerability in a certain relation to power and as an extension of that, to threaten violence and exploitation of that vulnerability.

Sp**k is still a racial slur, no matter how you portray the definition as. 

Fine but I sure as fuck hope you start boycotting stores that have products with spooky themes and the word plastered on it.That way I never have to meet sensitive as fuck people like you.

also, “fuckboy”, you best be boycotting that word as well, love-helens  :/

spook  (spimagek)

n.
1. Informal A ghost; a specter.
2. Slang A secret agent; a spy.
3. Offensive Slang Used as a disparaging term for a Black person.

okay, yes, and…? how does this refute my response in any way?

~Vanellope

The definitions are listed in the order of popular use. I haven’t heard someone call a black person a spook since the 1970s, and the fact that a lot of white people don’t realize that it was once used as a racial slur shows its overall disuse as a racial slur in like 30 years. Quit whining about it, being used for its correct meaning and insisting it’s a racial slur, and nobody will ever use it as a racial slur again. Keep bringing it up and you’ll breathe new life into it.

man u know when ppl are like “intelligence is sexy :))))” they mean “ppl w learning and/or speech disabilities are undesirable, as are people who are not up to my standards of white middle-class diction and interests :))))”

fuck off w that tbh

@ sapiosexuals

um, no?? That’s not it at all??

I’m at home today, please don’t make me hit the bottle, it’s not even 3 o clock.

Sooo… people with learning and/or speech disabilities can’t be intelligent?  And there’s more than one kind of intelligence: you have your learned intelligence sure, but you can be smart without having graduated high school.  Pretty sure one wouldn’t say David Karp is unintelligent, for example, despite him dropping out of school at 15.  Even people who aren’t wildly successful can be smart without having graduated high school or gone to college.

But I’m just gonna repeat that first point because I feel it’s the most important: OP is saying that people with learning and/or speech disabilities can’t be intelligent.  That’s some fucked up ableism right there.

Wow, that’s a pretty disgusting statement there OP. Like really, my developmental disabilities means I’m unintelligent? Like I don’t already feel that way about myself and how others see me without you telling me that people think and feel that?

Fuck you and your ableism OP, you’re not making some grand statement calling out ableism, you’re perpetuating it.

This is what I’m talking about when I say that conflating stupidity with disability by turning them into disability-specific slurs when they aren’t is in itself ableist.

If you follow me, you’ve seen this little guy’s (maybe gal’s) story. I’ve gone through a lot with this tiel over the last couple days. He’s been at the Petco almost this entire year and it’s clearly taken a toll on him. I’ve been talking with mangers at the store and blogging about it and after much thought, I want to bring Skeeter home.
I ask that you help me in this task. I have just moved to a new job and I’m getting back on my feet. While I can afford to care for Skeeter after he’s purchased, the initial cost of buying him and toys (I already have a cage and other supplies) is a bit much right now. 
I am asking $175. Skeeter is $105, but the rest will help cover tax, any GoFundMe fees and buy him a few new toys. Check out my posts about him on my blog (this all just happened so it’s all the first posts) and if you can please donate to my GoFundMe and/or signal boost. Thank you.

Most accurate description of Tumblr. EVER.

- The Creole Drunk

This is a horrible strawman and you should be ashamed

Originally by plebcomics, reblogged via fuckyouicantseestraight.
#drawing one side as an angel and the other as a screaming heathen does not make for a legitimate argument #usually both sides are pretty shitty so don’t make it out like you’re superior

Except that this sort of thing actually happens. I’ve personally seen a SJW treat someone politely suggesting they try not yelling like they were saying to shut up entirely. They literally couldn’t imagine any sort of advocacy that didn’t involve wharrgarbl. In fact, many SJWs treat these sort of suggestions like the person - who they often assume is a white cis het male - is trying to silence them entirely.

This isn’t a strawman. It’s quite accurate.

Just because you don’t see it happening in front of you, doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen.
