Take a fucking bow, folks.
I’m all for speaking truth to power but I don’t understand screaming your version of someone else’s reality into their face while they categorically deny it & profess support for your cause until you break them down. What I’ve seen here is nothing short of bullying. And no, it doesn’t make it right because he was on a TV show once.
Don’t @ me. Or do; I know where the block button is & mine’s wired to mew like a kitten… it’s just the cutest 🐈
@Laurelai I do follow you, along with over a thousand other people, so I see a tiny fraction of what happens when I scroll through my timelines (which I do a couple of times a day if I can find the time to). I don’t think any of us can be expected to see/comment on everything about everyone we follow. I completely get your point and I try to be a good ally but I don’t understand how expressing your opposition to one injustice implies supporting other ones.
@aral Because people only seem outraged when this happens to white cis men and nobody does anything when it happens to trans women, poc, the disabled etc. This has been an ongoing problem on all social media sites since forever.
Also it was trans women who had a problem with this guy, and cis women because of the things hes done to hurt us and his defending of an abuser.
Do i like that it had to come to this? No. I dont. Id prefer this never happen to anyone. However when people run out of peaceful options for justice this sort of thing is going to happen. If you want to prevent it, ensure justice is done.
@aral By the way? Happened to me again. Right after Wheaton. Hardly anyone cared. From some of the same people who went after him. Hardly anyone cared. I think this proves my point that people see it and most of them dont care unless its a white cis man with money
I think it's about wether you're fame or not.
yet I have seen in this case see more non-queer/... to queer/... people that have spoken up then usual. This I asmue comes from the fact that their communities simply didn't got effected by wil's behaviour.
when your point is, such is largly done/happening by/to white cis males, thought it's true, but missing the nuance, making it difficult to parse your message.
