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.

politics-junkie: vox: Why this black Bernie Sanders delegate says he doesn’t have the luxury of going “Bernie or Bust.” Every night of the Democratic National Convention, Pastor Ray Shawn McKinnon and his friend Sebastian stayed up talking well past 3 am in their Holiday Inn hotel room. The two met last summer volunteering for Bernie Sanders in North Carolina, and soon became close friends. McKinnon, who is black and 6'1, calls Sebastian, who is white and 5'2, his “pint-sized conscience.” Over 14 months, they were inseparable allies: canvassing, phone-banking, and organizing for a common cause. But now they’re at odds — and trying to make sense of it. Sebastian says he can’t bring himself to vote for Hillary Clinton. But McKinnon can’t believe that his onetime allies, including Sebastian, hate Clinton so much that they would risk a presidency McKinnon thinks would be a catastrophe for minorities — including his four black sons. “If Donald Trump wins, he’s more likely to appoint judges who oppose Black Lives Matter and criminal justice reform, and who think that police officers — who can kill black people without being charged — already don’t have enough power. That means if my kids get shot, the officers who did it would become less likely to be charged,” he says. “This isn’t theory for us. It’s reality.” It’s only a risk unless you live in a swing state.Why are people baffled when others don’t share the same viewpoints as them?  “Trying to make sense of it”?  Really? This is what happens when neo-liberals use the language of identity politics. This notion that a black person or any POC HAS to like Clinton or that being a leftist and a POC are in direct conflict is so condescending, and it really irks me. It erases agency from POC and is more harmful than good.: Bernie 2016 I SUPPORT PALESTINIAN H UM AN RIGHTS politics-junkie: vox: Why this black Bernie Sanders delegate says he doesn’t have the luxury of going “Bernie or Bust.” Every night of the Democratic National Convention, Pastor Ray Shawn McKinnon and his friend Sebastian stayed up talking well past 3 am in their Holiday Inn hotel room.
