Ironically, there are few words that adequately describe the feeling that comes with dreaming up a perfect idea for writing.
A SJS said this to me after I said I was scared for a family members life due to a recent increase in the killings of white farmers in the area where they live combined with a prominent figure encouraging violence and singing ‘kill the boer’.
These people make me sad sometimes.
So, it appears that on a couple of the more extreme blogs, the treatment white people get has now extended to mixed race people with one white parent. Slurs such as ‘redbone’ and ‘mulatto’ are being casually thrown around, and interracial people’s perspectives are being dismissed as “whining”.
I’m guessing the logic behind this goes something like “Half white= half white privilege= 50% more privilege than me= oppressor!= I can be as much of a dick to you as I like”.
This, despite the fact that interracial people experience racism just as much as any other visible minority, sometimes at higher rates than their monoracial counterparts.
Annnnnnnnd that’s all folks. Once you start discriminating against mixed race people simply because they’re part white, you’ve officially stopped being able to claim any measure of “Social Justice” for yourself. You’re now just a group of bigoted racial extremists, essentially just the Klu Klux Klan, but reversed.
I-I just… What?
The stupidity of some Sallies has reached a whole new level. How is supporting Polyamory being “Demiphobic” or prejudiced against “Demis?” Since when were Demis such an oppressed group like gays? Futhermore, how is being Poly going against Demisexuality? Newsflash: Just because you love and have sex with more than one person doesn’t mean you’re not romantic and don’t have feelings for them!
Of all the many groups of people and persons for whom Social Justice Warriors fight, Demisexuals are Easily the least oppressed and least oppress-able.
For the most part people don’t know about Demisexuality, but regardless of if they do or don’t, they’re pretty much guaranteed not to care at all.
But… that’s also mostly because you’re just going to get lumped in with whatever you’re romantic orientation is, so…
They weren’t invented by anyone, hence the term “logical fallacy”.
Yep, not wonky character development or disharmonious story threads. Sexism is the only explanation.
Brave was good but it just wasn’t Pixar quality. It really felt like two different stories had been awkwardly stitched together (and you can practically see the seams). And that’s not even addressing how awkward the conclusion was in the context of the rest of the film’s development.
