Community, Cute, and Definitely: Slate Slate @Slate Looking for a book to help resist Trump? Try this gay immigrant Muslim furry romance: slate.me/2im19UK 1/13/17, 6:05 PM 1,452 RETWEETS 1,460 LIKES practicalityinpraxis: 7uigi: practicalityinpraxis: moonbian: benepla: c-bassmeow: This is real @scarred-and-purrfect Oh yeah, let’s ignore an indie, queer graphic novel featuring muslim immigrants and the struggle of existing queerly in a heteronormative society, because it has cheetah people.Because shitting all over queer and immigrant stories is definitely leading edge revolutionary thinking in this era of increasing anti-queer, anti-immigrant violence.It’s not like furries are literally, on a lowball estimate that doesn’t even factor in gender identity, 90% queer or anything. It’s not like there’s an enormous crossover between “people who are attacked for their identity” and “people who take solace in escapist fiction that features societies where these horrible problems can be addressed at a distance because they are so visibly fantastic.” Oh wait.Fuck off.“Not liking furries” doesn’t make shitting all over stories that feature queer immigrants revolutionary.It just means you’ve found a cute, funny way to make your bigotry look cool and funny. @practicalityinpraxis Is this reply satire or not Someone points out that you’re using jokes that stopped being funny in 2004 as a veil to unduly criticize queer, Muslim, immigrant stories published by queer authors independently while literal fascists take power on a global level. And you take the criticism so poorly that you assume it must be joke. But, then, you are a child who has likely not experienced this sort of climate before. No, it’s not satire, and if you have any respect for queer people, immigrants, etc you will not use humour to attack them. Humour is best used punching up, at people in power, not punching down, at queer subcultures you find funny. Now, go away because I have no interest in talking further with a child that finds mocking queer authors and subcultures to be a good time. I dont want to get involved in your little debate because I dont find this revolutionary at all but just to be clear I posted this not to make fun of any community muslims, furry, etc. but because the headline is so ridiculous. This will do nothing to fight trump. Its performative, identity politics hogwash to think reading a furry erotica will dismantle or even aide in the fight against trump. The headline is nonsense with that logic any erotica that isnt straight is revolutionary. No.
