Hey everyone, this used to be my writing tumblr. But then the people of this site became COMPLETE HYPOCRITICAL MORONS so now it's filled with fandom puke and debunking SJWank bullshit.

"constructive criticism or dislike towards a female character is sexist no matter what context"

https://31.media.tumblr.com/18d3b685dbdd782abeff4c86197ef611/tumblr_inline_mubms7y24S1r456rw.gif

so I guess the people who hate  Ragyo is just sexist

~the black one need to watch Kill la Kill but heard quite a bit on Ragyo 

Apparently hating a molester is sexist if it’s a woman. 

She fucking molested her three daughters, tortured one and had her hanging in a cage for a month and fucking threw away the second one because she couldn’t do what she wanted her too. Yeah, those totally aren’t reasons to hate her fucking guts

Wait, what?! I mean, I’m 8 episodes away from finishing the anime myself and I may find Ragyo to be one fine specimen of a woman, but I can still acknowledge the fact that she’s a terrible person who people need to remember is an evil character.

Geez, it’s like the whole ‘woobification’ of Loki but worse since tumblr is bringing 'misogyny' into the mix to dissuade people disliking or criticizing a literal villain.

Have you ever been to earth?
On earth, we use the word “burrito” to describe a tortilla filled with things you eat. Pretty simple stuff, and I’m surprised you at least got that part right. My burrito was, in fact, filled with food. In this, you and I agree and are friends. But this is also where my lifelong hatred begins for you and anyone else whose brain has been repeatedly scrubbed with the same mixture of bleach and Pop Rocks as yours has. Because that should have killed you, but left you around long enough to do what you did to me today. Let me explain:
You’re an idiot.
Let me further explain:
Burritos are eaten from one end to the other. So that means when you assemble a burrito with motherfucking ZONES of ingredients going that direction, you create a disgusting experience for the burrito’s end user. When you make a burrito, you should put the ingredients in layerslengthwise. That way, every bite has AT LEAST A FUCKING CHANCE of getting at least two types of ingredients, and there is little chance of becoming almost hopelessly trapped in a goddamned cilantro cavern.
Have you ever eaten one of the things you make all fucking day? You should try one. They are pretty good WHEN YOU ARE NOT WILLING YOURSELF THROUGH THE FUCKING EMPIRE OF SOUR CREAM ONLY TO END UP IN LETTUCE COUNTRY.
When you eat a burrito, you don’t stand it up and bite down on it lengthwise like a fucking Rancor. Humans can’t usually dislocate their jaws, and I’m not a fucking pelican. But you must think that’s how it’s done, since that would be THE ONLY FUCKING WAY to take a bite of your crapstrosity and have it taste like a burrito.
And guess what else, player? You probably can’t guess anything, because I’m pretty sure you’re just a mop with a hat on it that fell over and spilled some shit into a tortilla, but just in case, here’s what:
Humans also don’t eat burritos like fucking corn on the cob. Like a fucking typewriter from one end to the other a little at a time and then DING next line. But today I wish I had tried that. Because at least THEN I would be able to eat some rice, then beans, then be all like HEY BEANS I’LL BE RIGHT BACK JUST GOING OVER HERE TO THE GUACAMOLE FOR A SECOND.
Nope.
My experience was more like HEY BEANS IT’S JUST GOING TO BE YOU AND I FOR A MINUTE UNTIL I CAN FUCKING EXCAVATE THE RICE FROM BENEATH YOU BUT BY THEN YOU WILL BE A FADING MEMORY OH HEY I WAS WRONG I’M IN THE FUCKING CHEESEOSPHERE NOW RICE MUST BE NEXT I HOPE IT’S NOT ANOTHER FUCKING SALSA POCKET.
You built this thing like a fucking pack of LifeSavers.
And don’t even fucking think I’m about to open this shit up and re-engineer your nonsense 90 degrees. I ALREADY PUT A HOLE IN IT WITH MY FUCKING MOUTH. YEAH. THAT’S HOW I DISCOVERED YOU FUCKING SUCK AT LOOKING AT THINGS. I AM NOT GOING TO DO FUCKING TORTILLA ORIGAMI TO GET THIS SHIT BACK TOGETHER, ONLY TO END UP WITH A BURRITO THAT’S BEEN SHOT IN THE GUT AND IS BLEEDING YOUR INEPTITUDE.
What’s that? I should ask you to mix it up first next time? IS THIS JAMBA JUICE? I DON’T WANT TO DRINK MY FUCKING BURRITO THROUGH A BENDY STRAW, AND I DON’T WANT A PILE OF BURRITO SOUP IN A FLOUR CAN.
I just want a burrito.
In conclusion:
You’re the worst thing that has ever happened to the universe, you owe everyone everywhere an apology for this burritobomination, and I hope your babies look like monkeys.



UPDATE FOR EVERYONE WHO SAID “JUST EAT IT WITH A FORK”:
A fucking fork?
I DIDN’T ORDER THE FUCKING COBBURRITO SALAD.
If anyone ever handed me a burrito with a fork, THEY WOULD BE WEARING A BRAND NEW BURRITO HAT FROM MY FALL COLLECTION TEN SECONDS LATER.
That’s like buying a car and having them hand you a fucking wrench with the keys. Like YEAH WE KNOW THIS MOTHERFUCKER’S GOING TO EXPLODE AND BE SPREAD ACROSS EIGHT LANES AS SOON AS YOU HIT THE GAS, BUT SHIT, WE GAVE YOU A WRENCH, SO BE COOL.
Jesus already gave me two burrito forks. One at the end of each arm. They’re called fucking HANDS.
A fork. My god. I haven’t cried since I was six, but I’m fucking sobbing now.
People eat burritos with forks?
God is sorry he made us.

Anonymous sent: On the SJW/Fandom post... The Welcome to Night Vale fandom here on Tumblr is CRAWLING with SJWs, like to the point where the entire fandom will rally against one particular artist/fan/ whathaveyou if their views are even a speck different. Hell, it's even considered racist if you don't see a particular character as the race the fandom portrays them as. So... Yeah. Homestuck isn't too bad, though... Unless you count the people who rant on about how sexist Hussie is or whatevs.

Thank you for the extra information anon! On the topic on homestuck however, I have heard and saw some posts regarding about now certain characters are sexist, such as Dualscar or even Caliborn. Can some of the mods of Trolls For Justice help us with this information?

-Taiwan

*violently shudders* Seriously, beloved SJHetalia mods, don’t ever go into the Welcome to Night Vale tag. We have artists and writers and cosplayers actually defecting back to the likes of deviantart and livejournal just to get away from the minefield that that fandom has become…

God, I hate twerking… But Blobby is the only exception I will make for it.

poison--pen sent: could you please explain male privilege in light of the women who only got two years in prison for raping an eight year old fifty times?

Could you please explain to me what the hell that has to do with anything?

The implication of your question seems to be that male privilege does not exist because a woman got a light sentence for a horrible crime.

What a shocker: that the American Justice system is not perfect and people who commit terrible crimes sometime get away with it. Would you like counter-examples of men getting a lack of punishment for rape? Because there are plenty of examples of those, too.

I’d also point out that this question is an attempt to belittle the reblog I made earlier about the need for feminism. I notice your question does not challenge any of those points. Instead, you tried to redirect the conversation towards making feminists look like hypocrites or that men are the true victims or something stupid like that. In fact, the link you provided me in a follow-up private ask (I do thank you for that, since I did not know of the story you were referring to, said link is here for those curious: http://ponyprincessesforjustice.tumblr.com/post/80581193523/theapatheticranter-her-legal-defense-was-funded), has commentary on how “feminism provided for her legal defense” and “feminism spent money to spin the local media” as if Feminism is some big organization that we all belong to and are on the payroll of, or perhaps some kind of clubhouse with a secret decoder ring.

Newsflash: feminism is not one monolithic entity that, if unchallenged, will absorb you with its evil, gooey tendrils of women’s rights. Feminism is a philosophical concept, with many varied waves, interpretations, and arguments concerning how the Patriarchy can be fought, what is an example of sexism or an example of agency, or how to spread equality to as many people throughout the world with very different cultural norms than in the United States.

But then again, YOU are not interested in having discussions about that.

Poison—pen, the last thing you sent me was another attempt, like this one, to try to say something bad about feminism (that would be THIS post, if you’re curious: http://atopfourthwall.tumblr.com/post/78491565955). Considering I saw no reblog or comment from you on that one, it makes me curious if you actually even read my tumblr or even know who the hell I am, but instead are simply interested in finding feminists and attacking them. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong in that regard, but I would have thought my position from last time was made perfectly clear, especially in how I feel about Asks like this.

If I’m wrong, feel free to correct me in an ask, private or public, and we’ll continue on our merry way. But as it stands, I see no reason to acknowledge any future asks from you on this subject, since you seem to be the one here who is uninterested in learning anything about feminism.

I’d like to know how his question doesn’t have to do with anything.  He presented you with an inquiry, and rather than provide any direct answer, you instead chose to play “I’ll see your privilege, and raise you a dollar!”.  If this is your idea of practicing “feminism”, I’d rather you called it something else entirely, because you’re certainly not encouraging anyone’s cooperation, let alone even making anyone want to take you seriously as an activist.

You see, you’re openly disregarding the situation presented to you in favor of citing examples that suit your side of the debate, which wasn’t what was asked.  This is one of the largest problems I, as a woman, have found with today’s brand of “feminism” - the idea that it is somehow above criticism, and the way it is being treated as a self-serving system that refuses to take into account legitimate injustice unless it is in regards to their own interests.  For every instance of a rapist getting a lighter sentence, there’s a woman that has received similar for unapologetic murder.  But, of course, since this reflects poorly on women, it’s never mentioned, nor is it ever noted that much of what is circulated regarding instances of domestic violence and abuse are either greatly exaggerated, or just plain falseViolence against spouses and children isn’t just “man’s domain”, and neglecting to point out the injustice when it’s a woman as the perpetrator only supports the same kind of gender inequality that is the very foundation of the problems that feminism originally sought to correct.

There are undeniably major problems with today’s “feminism”.

For starters, it has a nasty little habit of circulating outright lies.  The “One in four women will become victims of rape” statistic has long since been proven false, due to being conducted with a clear bias from the beginning.  There is also the matter of the old "equal work for equal pay" myth failing to take into account that it means precisely what it says - equal WORK, i.e., work that matches the output of others across the board, regardless of gender.  The same amount of hours put into a job does not automatically equate to equal work being accomplished in that time frame.  Of course, these aren’t the only lies being perpetuated in the name of “activism”.  This also doesn’t account for acts of violence, disruption, and harassment taken part in under that same guise of “promoting equality”.

I have seen the face of today’s feminism.  I came to Tumblr proud to don that label, because I thought it was only concerned with standing for what is just.  Unfortunately, I came to see that it has been irreversibly stained by a corrupt mindset less concerned with equality between the sexes on a global scale, and more concerned with their own personal space bubble, trying to police how we express ourselves (not sure if you’re aware, but many victims of rape and molestation use humor as a coping mechanism to take what happened to them, and strip it of the fear and power it holds over them), and blame crimes such as rape on anything but the rapist.  Humor is not the Devil’s hand - it is not impacting upon behavior, but reflective of it.  If you’d like, I also have this 220-page thesis about that particular topic.  Even women scholars have contested the idea of “rape culture”, as in this thesis by a specialist in contemporary moral theory.  Meanwhile, I have yet to see a single “feminist” even acknowledge the fact that recorded instances of rape have actually decreased by over 80% since 1979 (that is, unless they immediately follow that statement by either outright denying it, or trying to imply that unreported cases of rape could ever even come close to bridging such a tremendous gap).  There are reasons why sayings exist such as “The road to Hell is paved with good intentions”.  Even the best laid plans of mice and [wo]men can turn sour, and end up exploiting the very people they claim to be helping, such as the situation exposed in this 2005 documentary.

And so, with this in mind, I ask you - how legitimate is a movement when it has become associated with a self-serving attitude of free-floating hostility that believes itself above questioning?  As far as I can see, not very.  It is with deep regret that I have discarded the label of “feminist”, as the stigma attached to it is not a cross I care to bear.  I would rather wear a nice, clean pair of pants than to remain in a pair that has been gracelessly shat upon, and has festered and molded, because no one is willing to take a stand to correct its flawed execution.

I kind of hope you manage a decent debate here because I really respect Linkara and don’t want to see him turn into a SJW.

^My sentiment exactly. Geez, this is not what I wanted to log back into tumblr and see…

Yeah, it’s like more and more of the TGWTG people are getting roped in and it’s disheartening because I idolized these people as content producerd as a kid for not only being awesome reviewers but being good people with decent morals and real compassion for people outside of work as well. 

I hate to see them fall because they were all already socially progressive  and good people in their own right without falling into SJW bullshit.  

I can’t even begin to fathom how much Spoony’s, Doug’s, and Lewis’s video’s got me though as a teen. I still look back on “FMV Hell” fondly as the thing that nurtured my obsession with old, obscure, and weird games.   

Ja, exactly! I’ve already lost faith in a lot of producers and reviewers because they seem to want to split into two categories: SJW-mindset or ‘God, I hate this thing, I hate the fans of this thing, but in order to keep views and money up, I’ll half-ass a video on it’. TGWTG seemed to be a place outside of that. Yeah, I acknowledge that some producers may have their own beliefs, but not when they believe and promote movements that, in current incarnations (Third-Wave feminism) are not doing anything but hurting people and seeking a swap out of the status-quo under the guise of ‘Equality’. 

Hey, I want men and women to be equal! I don’t want a woman’s expected place to be in the kitchen. However, I also don’t want men to be demoted to walking, talking sperm-banks as many Third-Wave feminists think they should be.

*sigh* Sorry about that, I just… I just really like Linkara’s work. And between this and JesuOtaku giving me more reason to groan at her work after I had started to give her the benefit of the doubt a few months ago, I just don’t like how things are going…

I started losing about the time Doug put up a half-assed defense for Anita(with all she’s done and all her failures to research) and bitched about Samus’s High Heels on Facebook.

Jesu didn’t surprise me because I was hanging around Tvtropes doing some editing the day she waged war on them a few months back. 

and yeah, I’m in this place where I kind of wish Tumblr never existed because it’s done a lot to close the gap between the toxic part of the net and nicer half and make them almost interchangeable in some areas.    

Ew… Doug, why?

I mean (and this also goes to my followers) I don’t think that anyone should get rape or death threats… However, I will not suger-coat my reactions to Ms. Sarkeesian borderline conning people out of thousands of dollars for promoting biased information.

I mean, I like to think that there was a time where tumblr was good: Things were divided between the hipsters, the fandoms, and the professionals who used this place to advertise art, graphic design, and writing but… Maybe I’m just being naive?

Ah! I’m sorry, you’ve probably been wanting this conversation to end a few posts ago! It’s just odd to have a decent conversation on this site anymore.

Feminism is a philosophical concept, with many varied waves, interpretations, and arguments concerning how the Patriarchy can be fought, what is an example of sexism or an example of agency, or how to spread equality to as many people throughout the world with very different cultural norms than in the United States.

But then again, YOU are not interested in having discussions about that.

Poison—pen, the last thing you sent me was another attempt, like this one, to try to say something bad about feminism (that would be THIS post, if you’re curious: http://atopfourthwall.tumblr.com/post/78491565955). Considering I saw no reblog or comment from you on that one, it makes me curious if you actually even read my tumblr or even know who the hell I am, but instead are simply interested in finding feminists and attacking them. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong in that regard, but I would have thought my position from last time was made perfectly clear, especially in how I feel about Asks like this.

If I’m wrong, feel free to correct me in an ask, private or public, and we’ll continue on our merry way. But as it stands, I see no reason to acknowledge any future asks from you on this subject, since you seem to be the one here who is uninterested in learning anything about feminism.

I’d like to know how his question doesn’t have to do with anything.  He presented you with an inquiry, and rather than provide any direct answer, you instead chose to play “I’ll see your privilege, and raise you a dollar!”.  If this is your idea of practicing “feminism”, I’d rather you called it something else entirely, because you’re certainly not encouraging anyone’s cooperation, let alone even making anyone want to take you seriously as an activist.

You see, you’re openly disregarding the situation presented to you in favor of citing examples that suit your side of the debate, which wasn’t what was asked.  This is one of the largest problems I, as a woman, have found with today’s brand of “feminism” - the idea that it is somehow above criticism, and the way it is being treated as a self-serving system that refuses to take into account legitimate injustice unless it is in regards to their own interests.  For every instance of a rapist getting a lighter sentence, there’s a woman that has received similar for unapologetic murder.  But, of course, since this reflects poorly on women, it’s never mentioned, nor is it ever noted that much of what is circulated regarding instances of domestic violence and abuse are either greatly exaggerated, or just plain falseViolence against spouses and children isn’t just “man’s domain”, and neglecting to point out the injustice when it’s a woman as the perpetrator only supports the same kind of gender inequality that is the very foundation of the problems that feminism originally sought to correct.

There are undeniably major problems with today’s “feminism”.

For starters, it has a nasty little habit of circulating outright lies.  The “One in four women will become victims of rape” statistic has long since been proven false, due to being conducted with a clear bias from the beginning.  There is also the matter of the old "equal work for equal pay" myth failing to take into account that it means precisely what it says - equal WORK, i.e., work that matches the output of others across the board, regardless of gender.  The same amount of hours put into a job does not automatically equate to equal work being accomplished in that time frame.  Of course, these aren’t the only lies being perpetuated in the name of “activism”.  This also doesn’t account for acts of violence, disruption, and harassment taken part in under that same guise of “promoting equality”.

I have seen the face of today’s feminism.  I came to Tumblr proud to don that label, because I thought it was only concerned with standing for what is just.  Unfortunately, I came to see that it has been irreversibly stained by a corrupt mindset less concerned with equality between the sexes on a global scale, and more concerned with their own personal space bubble, trying to police how we express ourselves (not sure if you’re aware, but many victims of rape and molestation use humor as a coping mechanism to take what happened to them, and strip it of the fear and power it holds over them), and blame crimes such as rape on anything but the rapist.  Humor is not the Devil’s hand - it is not impacting upon behavior, but reflective of it.  If you’d like, I also have this 220-page thesis about that particular topic.  Even women scholars have contested the idea of “rape culture”, as in this thesis by a specialist in contemporary moral theory.  Meanwhile, I have yet to see a single “feminist” even acknowledge the fact that recorded instances of rape have actually decreased by over 80% since 1979 (that is, unless they immediately follow that statement by either outright denying it, or trying to imply that unreported cases of rape could ever even come close to bridging such a tremendous gap).  There are reasons why sayings exist such as “The road to Hell is paved with good intentions”.  Even the best laid plans of mice and [wo]men can turn sour, and end up exploiting the very people they claim to be helping, such as the situation exposed in this 2005 documentary.

And so, with this in mind, I ask you - how legitimate is a movement when it has become associated with a self-serving attitude of free-floating hostility that believes itself above questioning?  As far as I can see, not very.  It is with deep regret that I have discarded the label of “feminist”, as the stigma attached to it is not a cross I care to bear.  I would rather wear a nice, clean pair of pants than to remain in a pair that has been gracelessly shat upon, and has festered and molded, because no one is willing to take a stand to correct its flawed execution.

I kind of hope you manage a decent debate here because I really respect Linkara and don’t want to see him turn into a SJW.

^My sentiment exactly. Geez, this is not what I wanted to log back into tumblr and see…
