The Proud- This bigot is most likely to call their hate an opinion and talk about how everyone is entitled to their own. They will continue by speaking of their misguided understanding of Freedom of Speech. The important thing to remember when dealing with “The Proud” bigot is that it is only their opinion and their Freedom of Speech that they believe should be protected. Those that oppose them are somehow anti-freedom. Those that oppose them are not using Freedom of Speech but are in fact trying to squelch it.
The Enlightened- This bigot calls for peace. The problem is, their call for peace is only directed at the victim of hate. Rarely, if ever, is this “Call for peace” directed at the person who has caused the pain. They are anti-retaliation but not so much anti-attack. This bigot will talk of Ghandi or quote “An eye for an eye…” They’ll say, “Whatever the hate fueled person did was bad BUT…” All the while stepping directly on the hurt person and remaining completely silent in the face of the person who has caused the harm. They will often go on a faux peace rant, end it with an incorrect use of Nameste and be completely shocked that everyone doesn’t immediately fall at their feet and start singing We are the World.
The Troll- The troll is more common to internet life. Most people have either encountered a troll or have at least seen others dealing with one. Trolls are the most temperamental of all the bigots. They are “Trolls” in the first place because they like control. The only problem with The Troll is that they only like having control, not being controlled. In most cases, the thing that makes a troll sit in a ball and cry is doing nothing. These are weak willed people. They are incapable of human discourse so they’ve found a way of convincing themselves that what they are doing is for “Entertainment” purposes and if you get upset, it’s because YOU don’t have a strong constitution. Those that have shut a troll down, know that The Troll is by far the most likely to cry and pander for others to attack than any other bigot.
The Teacher- This bigot is perhaps the most dangerous to the weak minded. The Teacher is a person who spews “Facts” but each and every fact will actually be something they heard or something they’ve conjured up in their own mind. You see an influx of this sort of thing around time when people are trying to get money for college. They’ll talk of who get’s scholarships and be 100% factually incorrect. Often, they’ll even make up percentages that never seem to be linked or backed up in any way. These people are dangerous to those that don’t do their own research, those that don’t ask questions and those that believe anything they are told. Unfortunately, those that are most likely to be susceptible to “The Teacher” are also those most likely to become “The Teacher.”
The Almost- The Almost is likely your favorite if you have studied in whatever field they claim to be an expert in! “The Almost” is the person who gives information that was at one time considered factually correct. One ongoing example is: The Science Expert! You’ll see “The Almost” talk about how one race is inferior to another based on skull shape. The problem is, this theory has been disproved several times, over several years by several different well known scientist. However, it was considered true AT ONE TIME, so this person will use something that was ONCE considered true, ignore all current data that disproves the theory and justify their reasoning for their bigoted views.
The Comedian- This is the “It was just a joke” bigot. No matter what they said, what they did or who they hurt, in their feeble minds, it should all be allowed, encouraged and completely acceptable as long as they say “It was a joke.” The Comedian is second only to The Troll in over sensitivity. As a matter of fact, one of the favorite tools of The Comedian is to say that they were “Just trolling” when then have reached a point when they no longer can think of anything better to say to justify their ignorance. It’s often a last ditch effort. They will say, do and be horrible in every way but when called on their ignorance will cry and say that EVERYONE ELSE is overreacting. This person will also often use the line “Stop being offended by everything” or “Everyone is offended by something. People need to calm down.” All the while, crying about how mean everyone is to them.
The Magician- This bigot is the emotional terrorist of the group. Though all forms of the bigot will attack you on an emotional level, “The Magician” makes it an art form. The magician spews hate, then once this bigot is either called on their crap or proven factually incorrect, they claim that they have a mental illness. Yes, it magically appears! This illness can rarely, if ever, be truly proven. This is used as a quick turn-of-events playing card. The Magician will attack at will. Then, when they see that they are losing the battle, they invoke an illness that you previously knew nothing about. Next, this illness becomes the reason that YOU, not them, but YOU are wrong for “Attacking” them. It’s clever but certainly a vile move. Only those who live in the depths of sub-humanism are capable of this sort of action.
It’s still bigotry
you can be a racist without ever burning a cross
you can be a sexist without ever sexually harassing
you can be transphobic without ever assaulting someone who is trans*
you can be homophobic without ever queer bashing
you can be ableist without ever making fun of someone who is not able-bodied
you can be discriminatory without ever doing a physical action
it’s your words. your words.
Unless you are poor, brown, female, Jewish, or gay.
I’m not gonna tag this Disney cuz that’s rude, but I’m not into the Walt Disney worship I see here on Tumblr, or in real life. The man was a racist and sexist bigot who designed Disney Land as a tribute to a pastoral version of America that never existed. He placed it in Anaheim, where minorities who were too poor and marginalized in Southern California to, by and large, afford cars could not get to it, and instructed admissions employees to discourage them from coming. He refused to hire black or brown people except one woman who was forced to perform in near-minstrel capacity as Aunt Jemima in the Aunt Jemima Pancake House on Orleans Street. He also was a public supporter of some of the most vile anti-Semites in America.
You can talk about modern Disney and all the progress its made from these frankly nauseating beginnings, but holding Walt Disney up as some champion of individuality, self-expression, and self-esteem is a damn lie. He only wanted you to be yourself if you were white and middle class.
Quite a guy, old Uncle Walt
(he also sold out a bunch of his striking employees to Joseph McCarthy)
While the Disney Company has progressed from when Walt Disney ran it, its not all that progressive. The company is still incredibly racist, sexist, etc.
Please stop tagging your posts with ‘feminism’, it’s really bothersome to have to continually see you enforcing society’s misogynistic and bigoted norms, when there are people utilizing the feminism tag to better the world and bring about equality
I am a feminist, so I will continue to tag as a feminist and to promote feminism.
LOL you’re as feminist as a a meat eater is vegan.
A few choice quotes from your blog:
“Sodomy is their [gay people’s] sin.”
“Clearly men cannot do what they want with their penis when they force it on a woman who does not want sex. Just like a woman cannot force death on a child who wants life and purpose in the world, just because she owns her uterus!”
“I love Sarah Palin, she was almost the first Vice President of the United States…I don’t believe in killing babies. I don’t believe in promiscuous sex. Condoms and contraceptives are used to promote an unhealthy, promiscuous, sex life. SEX according to GOD is not supposed to be like that. Not to mention that most feminists, actually I’d say ALL modern day feminists believe in desecrating marriage by allowing people to wed OUTSIDE of Christian churches and allowing it to be between anyone other than a man and a woman… Sarah Palin was a persecuted woman who stood up for her beliefs and almost became the HIGHEST ranking female politician.”
“Gays can be saved, the just have to repent for their sins.”
Being pro-life and being a feminist are two incompatible positions.
Being homophobic and being a feminist are two incompatible positions.
Being a slut-shaming bigot and being a feminist are two incompatible positions.
Comparing rape to abortion is incompatible with being a feminist.
You are not a feminist. You clearly use this word to describe yourself a lot, but it doesn’t mean what you think it means.
Feminism explained (by Battlefield315)
I am disgusted: this video is TAME when it comes to misleading, bigoted, sexist videos talking shit about feminism. When it comes to dickheads gathering together and badmouthing straw-manned feminism, Youtube’s the place. I’m so sick of it.
