Dear tumblr consider this

Tim sees a racist slur being used in the youtube comments section. He ignores it, and moves on with his life. Tim watches a bulletin on the news about a transwoman violently assaulted in her home. He ignores it, and moves on with his life. 


Tim hears an employee at work using homophobic language at a gay co-worker. He ignores it, and moves on with his life. 


Tim sees a woman getting verbally harassed by a group of men on the street on his way to work. He ignores it, and moves on with his life. Tim can ignore it because his life isn’t dominated by things like racism, sexism, homophobia or transphobia. 
Silence. Is. Compliance. 

Fuck you Tim.
You can try to make the world a better place.

It’s funny because people who say that don’t think it’s reasonable to get offended by rape jokes or transphobic jokes but then will have tantrums over jokes about white men.

I’m glad someone addressed this.

well that escalated quickly. 
lots of slippage here between “offense” and “inequality and/or violence.” 
Category A: if it JUST offends you, like someone’s taste in tsatskes might offend you, make like Elsa and let it go. 
Category B: if it is actively perpetuating harm, particularly to minoritized populations, say something. 
people who get pissed about “SJWs” think B things are A things, are just personal taste things, and therefore that people who react as if they are B things are overreacting. that’s a problem. and maybe that’s what this post was about, saying A but actually what they were talking about is B.
but what it looks like in the reblog chain is taking an A thing and treating it like a B thing. and that causes problems of its own (though less severe, obviously, in the grand scheme of things).
