But seriously can abled people stop trying to pathologise bigotry, violence and hate
When somebody kills people, why do you suddenly deem them ‘psychotic’?
When somebody ignores the feelings of the oppressed why do you label them ‘sociopathic’?
Why when somebody is a disgusting MRA do you call them ‘autistic’?
It’s because you have to distance yourself from these people and pretend that it’s not abled folk who often do this, you have to claim that anyone awful is mentally disabled, because that’s what you think of disabled people. That we are violent, that we are the problem in society, the cause of all hatred.
Mentally ill people are not your fucking scapegoats, stop treating us as such
I thought you were supposed to be an anarchist.
I am, but I recognize a distinction between a nation and its government.
"I am an ‘anarchist’ [market liberal] and I believe in the eternal existence and legitimacy of nation-states"
So far, I have been enjoying the Adventures of Business Cat a great deal, possibly more than is appropriate for an adult human. (All of these are from the webcomic Happy Jar)
UPDATE: Now with more Business.
YES ALL THE BUSINESS CAT STRIPS IN ONE PLACE
A white supremacist charged with killing three people near two Jewish community facilities in suburban Kansas City this week posted more than 12,000 messages on a racist website which carries the slogan “No Jews, Just Right,” according to an organization that tracks hate groups.
The online activity by Frazier Glenn Cross follows a trend in which prolific posters on hate online forums are becoming “disproportionately responsible” for racist murders and mass killings, according to a report released on Thursday by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a non-profit civil rights organization.
The report said nearly 100 people in the last five years have been murdered by frequent users of one white supremacist website, Stormfront. The site describes itself as a community of “White Nationalists” and “the voice of the new, embattled White minority.”
“It has been a magnet for the deadly and deranged,” said Heidi Beirich, author of the report.
This is part of what gets me about the whole anti-SJW thing, because one of their big talking points is that “reverse racism is just as bad! heterophobia is just as bad!” etc. So if we’re supposedly as bad as literal Nazis, then why aren’t TumblrInAction et al antagonizing, say, Stormfront members? Because they realize on some level that an angry trans person saying “I hate cis people” poses 0 actual threat to them, whereas pissing off a neo-Nazi could get them killed.
Meanwhile, POC, Jewish people, and queer people piss off neo-Nazis just by existing. But “anti-SJWs” who are supposedly for “real justice” won’t stand up against that. Apparently “real justice” can be carried out without any risk of consequences to one’s self.
the people who downplay the internet’s positive impact on the way we interact and get the word out tend to be the same ones that prefer shit to stay the same.
