Apparently, Bad, and Books: Sierra Marie @cochinita69 My family has gifted me 3 tazers, 4 pepper sprays, 2 pocket knives, and 1 bat over the years to protect me from men that want to hurt me.

No, RAPISTS know what consent is and they don’t care. Exactly. The overwhelming majority of men would never rape anyone. The tiny minority that would know full damn well it’s wrong, they just give a fuck because they’re scum. We don’t live in a rape culture. Some people just don’t care about what is and isn’t culturally acceptable. 31.7% of college men would rape a woman if there were no legal consequences.  31.7% is not a small minority. when some 1/3 of young men state that they would rape a woman if they knew they could get away with it, how is that not a rape culture? “The study was conducted by academics at the University of North Dakota and the North Dakota State University. Its sample size was 86 people.” Stop. 86 people isn’t even a majority of people at my high school. Fuck off. @gender-has-failed-us They’re really trying huh Also apparently a quarter of a person said yes… still trotting out stock “teach men not to rape” discourse in [current year] “86 people isn’t even a majority of people at my high school. Fuck off.” 86 people wasn’t even a majority of people in my year in high school. In 2004. We just gonna gloss over that quarter of a person bit? Yeah the math on that was definitely off, but I was more distracted by the fact the independent had the audacity to publish such a bullshit article based on the biggest joke of a “research survey” I’ve seen in a while. “We got about 25 people in fucking North Dakota to say that they might do a bad thing in a hypothetical universe where no cause and effect existed and this means that a third of male college students would rape a woman” holy shit.

Bad, Children, and Chill: * Watch Dra Cuddy:Mother Gothel by Aveku-chan-Kataang Customization /Wallpaper/ People / Females @2011-2016 Aveku-chan-Kataang YES! C'MON! 8DDD galotheshroom: ava-burton-writing: dragonenby: writingwithcolor: so-many-miles-to-go: aworldinneedofmagic: the-independent-jew: so-many-miles-to-go: smol-mother-rose: so-many-miles-to-go: Yeah, there’s a reason for that. It’s called: antisemitic caricature. I don’t understand what’s Jewish about mother gothel… she has a typical Disney face doesn’t she? Is it the curly hair..? I mean her nose and everything else seem normal? I’m sorry, I’m just trying to figure it out, you don’t have to answer if you don’t want to. dark curly hair - long hooked nose - darker complexion than the blond blue eyed heroine 9and really the rest of the cast - portrayed as greedy and evil. Lisa Edelstein is Jewish.  As are Idina Menzel and Amy Winehouse, both of whom I have seen compared in looks to Gothel.  Gothel’s design is a pretty clear caricature of ethnically Jewish women.   This is a pretty good contrast between Rapunzel and Gothel.  Rapunzel has the “typical Disney face”: Here’s a more close up look at her features. The hooked nose becomes even more pronounced as she becomes “eviler.” If you wanted to claim that there was noting out of the ordinary for Disney animation when it came to Gothel’s features, you would have to find at least one Disney princess or heroine with similar characteristics (long hooked nose and dark curly hair, etc). But here is what we have is - small noses that turn up at the end: wide, flatter noses (though cheers to Disney for not putting button noses on their characters of color, although Esmerelda’s clothing design deserves another essay on Rromani stereotypes and there are some major issues with Pocahontas as well) And then a few misc noses (again, props for Jasmine’s nose not being a button): Apart from just the design of Gothel, there’s also the whole: “obviously ‘other’ (read Jewish) woman kidnaps the pretty blonde (read: gentile) kid to use her for ritualistic/magical purposes” Like that right there on top of the aesthetic Jewish-coding is what pushed the antisemitic caricature over the top for me.  It harkens back to antisemitic blood libel that claimed that Jews stole gentile children for all manner of nefarious reasons. Even when Gothel is in “mother” role to Rapunzel, she’s is shown as nagging and passive aggressive, both antisemitic stereotypes of Jewish women. There is no one thing that makes her an antisemitic caricature, but the design, plus the storyline she plays out, plus her characterization cement the overall character as antisemitic.   Jew-coding a villain is not in itself always antisemitic when there are also Jewish coded heroes. Rapunzel does not have that. Having a villain steal a baby for magical/ritualistic reasons is not always antisemitic as long as the villain is not Jew-coded.  Rapunzel fails this as well. Having a nagging and passive aggressive mother character is not antisemitic provided that she is not, again, coded as Jewish.  Rapunzel fails once again. Hope this helps. EDIT: @ariminak pointed out that some of my wording made it sound like Gothel’s features only stereotypically caricatured Ashkenazi women when in fact that is not the case.  I changed the language to remove that phrasing and make it clear that any ethnically Jewish women can be affected by this type of aesthetic trope. If you reblogged the old version, could you please delete it and reblog this one instead. Spread this version so people recognize that this stuff harms all Jewish women. omfg can y’all chill the fuck out, any race can be portrayed as hero or villain, it’s a fucking kids movie not a political statement So I’m guessing you’re white and a gentile. As such, you’ve more than likely grown up looking at tv and movies and fairytales and seeing your face in those of the heroes. Jewish people don’t get that.  When we are portrayed in live action, our characters are more often than not whitewashed and in other media, our features are used and caricaturized to create “evil looking” villains. You don’t see it because you’ve been ingrained with the idea that “ethnic” features are just “how you make a character look evil.”  You don’t look at Gothel and see your mother.  You don’t see yourself and your people.  You don’t see decades of propaganda aimed at fostering hate against you and ultimately seeking to destroy you.   But seeing how you also seem to think that saying you’re not attracted to an entire race of people ISN’T racist, you really don’t get any say on any of this. So really, you need to chill the fuck out and stop telling marginalized people to stop talking about the tools of our own marginalization. Let’s play a game I like to call: Movie Villain or Antisemitic Propaganda: Many “evil witch” tropes were built on European antisemitic stereotypes, not just in appearance but in the storylines they play out as well. Greediness, stealing children, killing children, hunger for power, etc.  Every time a movie villain design uses stereotyped Jewish features to communicate “evilness” to an audience, they perpetuate the marginalization of the people they are using.  One big issue I have is that Gothel’s didn’t start out as the antisemitic caricature that made it to screen.  Much of the early concept art has a more dark romanticism feel.   They changed the original design. Presumably to make Gothel more “other” from the good characters in the movie.  At some point, a decision was made that dark curly hair and a hooked nose wound better convey their villain. It really doesn’t matter if any of this was intentional, I’d actually bet that it wasn’t.  However, antisemitic tropes are so engrained in our societies that people like you, even when confronted with a step by step break down of what it is, feel comfortable thinking that there’s nothing wrong with it and mocking those calling it out as if we are overreacting. You seem to have completely ignored the majority of my post.  It is the character design, plus the characterization, plus the story line that mirrors blood libel that makes Gothel an antisemitic character.  It’s not just about someone of a certain race or ethnicity being a villain.  It’s about how stereotypes of a certain ethnic group are understood as “villainous” due to villains being repeatedly coded as Jewish over decades of film and tv. And contrary to your naive belief, all media is political to some extent. Every time a historically present minority is not included in film (ex: lily-white Harlem in Fantastical Beasts) or when a minority character is whitewashed, or when the “ethnic” features of a minority are used almost universally to portray bad guys, it is a political and social issue.  When you never see yourselves as the people who play the hero or even see your people existing in a portrayal of a place where they should be, it is not benign. Reblogging again for these additions. I’m not Jewish, but I can imagine seeing yourself villanized again and again must wear on you so hard (like queer coded villains do on me). The stereotypes are so insidious, I didn’t even realize she was Jewish coded until I saw this post for the first time, and since then I’ve been able to pick up on more anti-semitic media. Stay cognizant! This is a writing blog so fellow writers! Please take a good look at your villains— even if they’re not Jewish, it can be antisemitic. Thanks. - A Jew™️ I feel like you guys want to be offended. its called shape theory and character design. I haven’t met a single Jew that has a hooked nose and jews are not the only the only ethnicity with lightish brown skin and curly black hair. for example, ME I’m Mexican and have those features I have met a woman for MADRID who looks EXACTLY like the woman above. and her accent sounds a lot more Spanish than Jewish (which would make sense because Rapunzel takes place in Germany and Spain is pretty damn close by. Also she just straight up does not have a hooked nose. Not anything like those caricatures anyway. In the shot where she’s in profile it doesn’t look hooked at all.

Adam Driver, Anaconda, and Apparently: Sean T.

Not to mention Adam Driver. He’s still getting crapped on. People complained that he was playing a Jewish guy infiltrating the Klan in a historical Spike Lee movie, even though he isn’t Jewish, which is apparently Not Allowed. These are popular franchises. If a fraction of a percent of their fans are knob-ends who harass people, that would seem overwhelming to the person on the receiving end. Not to mention Rey’s a Mary Sure now and everyone called it. You do remember that I disagree with the majority opinion, right? Also, people were calling her a Mary Sue from the first movie. Sometimes based on things that literally didn’t happen, like “being a better pilot than Han”. On a ship she had literally never seen before in her life until she could pilot it BETTER than someone who’s had it forever.That’s bullshit. On a ship she had literally never seen before in her life You mean the ship that she explicitly called “junk”? The one she says she advised against certain modifications for? The one owned by the Quarter Portion guy, who used to be her guardian, as we see in the flashback? How does Rey fly the ship better than Han? Please, I haven’t seen a single piece of evidence for this in over two and a half years, but it’s treated as gospel.  Heck, he didn’t even “have it forever”, he lost it years, maybe decades ago. Better than Han is less important than outflying two Ties on her first attempt. Only due to home ground advantage, vs. two fighters designed mainly for space combat with horrible aerodynamics, and even then, she got Finn’s turret shot. Also, she’s all-but-explicitly shown to be using The Force. The dialogue draws attention to the fact that she’s flying better than she expects. ‘somebody did a thing that is entirely understandable given the context of the prior movies and the actual text of the movie at hand. But for some reason I missed these obvious things so yarrr!’ No I fully accept the explanations for it. I still think it was poorly done and added to Rey’s perception as a Mary Sue who faces no real challenges and succeeds at everything. That there’s an explanation for what she’s doing and how she’s doing it doesn’t change that I and many people think she shouldn’t be doing it in the first place. So, shedloads of people apparently ignored or missed the clear on-screen evidence to complain about this aspect of the movie, but it’s still the movie’s fault that they’re wrong, even when they’re making claims which they could not have reasonably arrived at (EG Rey’s a better pilot than Han.), and the only possible explanation is “fandom misconceptions”? just because she succeeded (lived) doesn’t mean Rey herself experienced these things as ‘easy’. how many movies out there does the hero do something unexpectedly and benefit from the results? like maybe all of them? movies would be boring if characters are powerless the entire time until the exact one moment they need to win. they need to succeed and stumble a little bit along the way. little wins and little losses until the end. if she got her arm cut off, would that remove people’s mary sue label? Thing is, people ignore the actual struggles she went through just because they have a Narrative. She didn’t just beat Kylo, he knocked her out pretty much instantly, and then Fin bought her time, and then she temporarily forced Ben back (IIRC, the book says she tapped into the Dark Side). We don’t even know if he would’ve been able to win if he got up, or even if he could get up. And this was while Kylo was bleeding out from a high-powered weapon, which the movie takes pain to remind us of. But the fanbase acts like Rey apparently beat Ben with one hand tied behind her back, wearing a blindfold, while suffering from some hideous space-combination of Avian Flu and Ebola Zaire. I’m so glad I’m not crazy. I thought I was the only one in the more conservative camp that doesn’t agree that Rey is a Mary Sue. There is lots of in-text explanation for why she excels at certain things as well as the time honored “because the Force“ answer which has applied to a lot of characters besides her. And she absolutely does have struggles even if they are primarily in emotional conflict and wrestling with her untapped strength and insecurities about her origins. These are what make the character. Calling the whole character a Mary Sue because “she fight too good“ is kind of asinine. And don’t get me started on how they bitch about her beating Kylo and forget that he was mortally wounded at the time, and bitch about her knowing something about the Millennium Falcon and mechanical engineering despite the fact that she was A PROFESSIONAL JUNKER and the ship had been on her planet probably most of her life giving her plenty of time to explore it. But yeah pretending that only the minority actors/actresses get harrassed is bullshit. Rey is 100% a Mary Sue. No training yet managed to beat Kylo Ren, flew a ship across space despite no experience, etc. @rockyrz did you read literally one word from the post above you or are you just gonna keep shouting “she’s a Mary Sue!“ and ignore all evidence to the contrary?“Managed to beat Kylo Ren”BECAUSE HE WAS FUCKING MORTALLY WOUNDED.“flew a ship across space”BECAUSE SHE HAD JUST STATED SHE WAS A PILOT.Like seriously it’s fine if you don’t like the movie but you seem kind of dumb if you just straight up ignore the evidence even it’s right in front of your face so you can keep saying the same thing over and over.

They’re picking out things that <i>could be</i> Jewish features or stereotypes and then saying that they are. </p> <p>“She’s greedy and evil” and so are pretty much all other Disney Villains. Ya know… gotta be evil to be a villain. Dr. Faciler, Gaston, The Evil Queen, Maleficent, Jafar, Scar… need I list more villains? Being evil and greedy =/= being jewish coded because evil and greedy are common traits of villains, <i>even within </i><br/></p> <p>“She has dark curly hair” so does Esmeralda and Moana. <br/></p> <p>“Hooked nose.” her nose isn’t even hooked. It’s flat, similar to Maleficent’s. Anytime someone’s head is bent or leaning forward, naturally, their nose will appear more hooked. that’s just anatomy. That happens to <i>everyone</i>.

If we’re going this loosely based on stereotypes, you can even argue that Queen Eleanor is “Jewish-coded” because she is nagging, protective, and motherly. Ya know, the Jewish mother/wife stereotype. </p> <p>So you have two arguably Jewish-coded heroines and protags yet no one can see the Jewish stereotypes in them because they are <i>the good guys</i>. Or because they don’t have <i>certain</i> Jewish stereotypes.</p> <p>The thing is, stereotypes, are not all inherently bad, or rather, not all stereotypes are negative. Not all stereotypes originate from oppressors or people that are anti-semitic, racist, etc. Some stereotypes are often used as stock characters by people of a race or culture. Not every stereotype is exclusive to Jewish people either or even originates with anti-semitism. </p> <p>If you can <i>only</i> see yourself in villains then maybe it’s you rather than the creators or characters.

Women were raped and crucified, people had horseshoes nailed to their feet as they were marched through the streets. Unspeakable atrocities were perpetrated. Yet almost no-one in the Islamic world, and too few in the West will acknowledge it even happened.</h2> <p>As the world continues to look on in dismay at the barbaric atrocities committed against Christian minorities by the Islamic State – the self-proclaimed new “caliphate” – today, April 24, marks the genocide of Armenian and other Christian minorities by Turkey’s Islamic Ottoman Empire, the last caliphate.</p> <p>Most <a href="http://www.anca.org/genocide/denial.php">American historians</a> who have examined the question agree that what the Armenians experienced was a deliberate, calculated genocide:</p> <p>More than one million Armenians perished as the result of execution, starvation, disease, the harsh environment, and physical abuse. A people who lived in eastern Turkey for nearly 3,000 years [that is, 2,500 years before the Islamic Turks invaded and occupied Anatolia, now known as “Turkey”] lost its homeland and was profoundly decimated in the first large-scale genocide of the twentieth century. At the beginning of 1915 there were some two million Armenians within Turkey; today there are fewer than 60,000.</p> <p>One-and-a-half million Armenians were eradicated. If early 20<sup>th</sup> century Turkey had had the apparatuses and technology to execute in mass – such as 1940s Germany’s gas chambers – the entire Armenian population could well have been annihilated.</p> <p>The atrocities suffered by Armenian and other Christian minorities are too long to list. As occurs under the current caliphate – the Islamic State – the Muslims of the Ottoman caliphate abducted, raped, and slaughtered or sold countless Christian women and children on the Muslim slave markets.</p> <p>Armenian Christians were also sadistically tortured – as Christians are today under the Islamic State.</p> <p>On <a href="http://www.frontpagemag.com/2015/lloyd-billingsley/the-islamic-state-then-and-now/">FrontPage Magazine</a>, Lloyd Billingsley writes:</p> <p>Torture squads would apply red-hot irons, tear off flesh with hot pincers, then pour boiled butter into the wounds. The soles of the feet would be beaten, slashed, and laced with salt. Dr. Mehmed Reshid tortured Armenians by nailing horseshoes to their feet and marching them through the streets. He also crucified them on makeshift crosses.</p> <p>The Muslims hacked Armenians to pieces and dashed infants on the rocks before their mothers. They burned bodies not for sanitary reasons but in search of gold coins they believed the Armenians had swallowed. The Muslims also tore apart the victims’ feces in the search for gold. U.S. consul Leslie Davis, a former attorney and journalist, documented the Islamic zeal.</p> <p>“We could all hear them piously calling upon Allah to bless them in their efforts to kill the hated Christians,” Davis wrote. “Night after night this same chant went up to heaven and day after day these Turks carried on their bloody work.” Around Lake Goeljik, Davis wrote, “thousands and thousands of Armenians, mostly innocent and helpless women and children, were butchered on its shores and barbarously mutilated.”</p> <p>In her memoir, Ravished Armenia, <a href="http://www.genocide-museum.am/eng/online_exhibition_6.php">Aurora Mardiganian</a> described being raped and thrown into a harem – <a href="http://www.raymondibrahim.com/islam/muhammad-and-islams-sex-slaves/">akin to the experiences of today’s non-Muslims under Islamic State authority</a>.</p> <p>Unlike thousands of other Armenian girls who were killed after being defiled, she managed to escape. She recalls seeing <a href="http://books.google.com/books?id=r_O_lkCGHOsC&amp;pg=PA107&amp;lpg=PA107&amp;dq=%E2%80%9CEach+girl+had+been+nailed+alive+upon+her+cross,+spikes+through+her+feet+and+hands,%E2%80%9D&amp;source=bl&amp;ots=610-sOzCgq&amp;sig=3Na9l_6_2Bci2ulLu7HOFVxsYD0&amp;hl=en&amp;sa=X&amp;ei=cAp4UYyRIqXriwK0rYGICw&amp;ved=0CEAQ6AEwAg#v=onepage&amp;q=%E2%80%9CEach%20girl%20had%20been%20nailed%20alive%20upon%20her%20cross%2C%20spikes%20through%20her%20feet%20and%20hands%2C%E2%80%9D&amp;f=false">16 Christian girls crucified</a> in Malatia: “Each girl had been nailed alive upon her cross, spikes through her feet and hands, only their hair blown by the wind, covered their bodies.”</p> <p>Because there is no dearth of evidence concerning the historical reality of the Armenian Genocide, 44 U.S. States have recognized it. South Dakota, which recently joined the list, <a href="http://armenianweekly.com/2015/02/26/south-dakota/">passed a resolution</a> in February 2015 calling on</p> <p>Congress and the president of the United States to formally and consistently recognize and reaffirm the historical truth that the atrocities committed against the Armenian, Greek, and other Christians living in their historical homelands in Anatolia constituted genocide and to work towards equitable, stable, and durable Armenian-Turkish relations.</p> <p>Turkey, of course, continues to deny that its forbears ever committed any genocide. As a group of American academics <a href="http://www.anca.org/assets/pdf/armenian_genocide_reference/professionalethics_lifton.pdf">wrote back in 1995</a>,</p> <p>Despite the vast amount of evidence that points to the historical reality of the Armenian Genocide – eyewitness accounts, official archives, photographic evidence, the reports of diplomats, and the testimony of survivors – denial of the Armenian Genocide by successive regimes in Turkey has gone on from 1915 to the present.</p> <p>Nor is the Islamic government of Turkey alone in denying the genocide. President Obama still refuses to acknowledge it – even though when he was running for office in 2008 <a href="https://web.archive.org/web/20081117033141/http:/www.barackobama.com/2008/01/19/barack_obama_on_the_importance.php">he professed his</a>:</p> <p>firmly held conviction that the Armenian Genocide is not an allegation, a personal opinion, or a point of view, but rather a widely documented fact supported by an overwhelming body of historical evidence. The facts are undeniable….  [A]s President I will recognize the Armenian Genocide….  America deserves a leader who speaks truthfully about the Armenian Genocide and responds forcefully to all genocides. I intend to be that president.</p> <p>Since taking office, Obama has refused to stand by his word. On Tuesday, April 21, the White House announced that it would again, for the seventh year since Obama’s pledge, not use the word “genocide,” thereby disappointing many human rights activists.</p> <p>Writes the <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/22/world/europe/white-house-acknowledges-armenian-genocide-but-avoids-the-term.html?_r=0">New York Times</a>:</p> <p>The president’s continued resistance to the word stood in contrast to a stance by Pope Francis, who recently called the massacres “the first genocide of the 20th century” and equated them to mass killings by the Nazis and Soviets. The European Parliament, which first recognized the genocide in 1987, passed a resolution last week calling on Turkey to “come to terms with its past.”</p> <p>The Armenian National Committee of America responded by saying: “The president’s surrender represents a national disgrace. It is a betrayal of the truth, and it is a betrayal of trust.”  The Armenian Assembly of America said “His failure to use the term genocide represents a major blow for human rights advocates.”</p> <p>But the president’s actions are consistent in other ways. Put differently, it is no marvel that Obama denies the genocide of Armenian and other Christian minorities at the hands of Muslims from a century ago, when one considers that he denies the rampant Muslim persecution of Christians taking place under – <a href="http://www.raymondibrahim.com/muslim-persecution-of-christians/confirmed-u-s-chief-facilitator-of-christian-persecution/">and often partly because of</a> – his leadership today.</p> <p>Raymond Ibrahim, a regular contributor to <a href="http://www.thecommentator.com/">The Commentator</a>, is author of <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1621570258/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=1621570258&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=uhurnetw-20">Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians</a></p> </blockquote> <p> “You care about getting people to believe as you do or die for refusing.” <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mmzaZqAtysnVR1iZrVV8erw">@impulsebyimpulse</a> I’m pretty sure that’s what the Caliphate did to the Armenians and what IS is doing now to their own enemies; are you really convinced this tumblr post is calling for the death of people who deny the Muslim involvement in these genocides and terror attacks?

Those who do good for the sake of justice are a cowed minority. The same can be said of doctors nurses, and teachers. <br/></p> <p> <b>The color of your clothes is not a race.

Asian, Club, and Doctor: avatarik Why l feel Doctor Who is not about equality anymore I have been a fan since I was 12. Back then it never mattered to me if some characters were black or allen or gay because the show made it seem normal. The show treated everyone equally regardless of their appearances and it didn't even occur to me that that may not be everyday behaviour. As I became older I grew to admire the series ability to normalize all sorts of difterent characters However, the newest episodes are just too much. My problem lies within the writers' eageness to show how progressive and including they are. They try as hard as they can not only to have as many gay and black characters as possible but also to shove them in the audience's faces until it becomes blatantly obvious what they're trying to pull Of. The only thing they achieve that way is to make the audience pay attention to things they normally wouldn't care for For example when I first saw the new companion-Bill, I wouldn't have batted an eyelash at her for being both black and gay if it weren't for her constantly reminding the audience of it. There isn't an episode passing by without her mentioning slavery, her sexual orientation, how poor she is and how cruel everyone is. It's come to the point where I believe the only personaity traits written under her character in the script were "queer, "easily offended and 'a person of colour. Is this really the way to go? How would you normalize something by purposely pointing it out all the time? I just watched the first 20 minutes of episode 4 so I'm gonna give an example from it Mine went greypacking on the Great Wall Of China with his boyfriend Here this guy talks abot his grandpa who's gay and I consider this just a harmless fleeting comment if not a weird one because - grandpa? cmon It's just, Itend to go for giris, usually, sO... Here we have Bill turn down this guy Paul and that's perfectly fine because she has every right to do so. What drew my attention was that in 10 minutes they mentioned gays twice without it being relevant to the plot in any way. (maybe just a little relevant because we need to know Paul's into girls so that other girl who's supposed to be into him could say he's expendable without us judging her later. JK still Irrelevant) But those are some minor things compared to this one There are 6 people living it one house- Bill, an Indian girl, an Asian gir, a guy named Pavel so I'm assuming he represents the Slavic minority, a guy that keeps stuttering so I'm guessing he represents people with anxiety issues and Paul a basic tall blond guy. When they hear a strange noise they are too afraid to go investigate so the shorter guy suggests Paul go since he's of the heaviest build. And then this girl adds: Really? So everyone is equaly important unless you're a white cis male? I guess what I'm trying to say is -don't try to tun everything into SJW propaganda. Doctor Who was fighting for equallity long before SJWs were even born and it doesn't need to adopt their hateful ways. I feel like it's stirring things up more than peacefully promoting equality <p><a href="http://laughoutloud-club.tumblr.com/post/162602491157/why-i-fell-doctor-who-is-not-about-equality" class="tumblr_blog">laughoutloud-club</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Why I fell Doctor Who is not about equality anymore</p></blockquote>

Baseball, Donald Trump, and Energy: J L Tierney Jan 28 at 11:23pm G The people who sheltered Jews in hidden rooms and attics and basements during the Holocaust were breaking the law. The people who smuggled 7,000 Jews out of Denmark were breaking the law. Schindler was breaking the law. The Underground Railroad broke the law. Harriet Tubman broke the law. MLK broke the law. Hell, the fucking Boston Tea Party broke the law. If saving friends and family and innocent people is breaking the law, break the law. If standing up for truth and justice is breaking the law, break the law. The law is unjust. The law is morally wrong. Break the fucking law. <p><a href="http://friendly-neighborhood-patriarch.tumblr.com/post/162404410187/lieber-tot-als-rot-onsomekingggshit" class="tumblr_blog">friendly-neighborhood-patriarch</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="http://lieber-tot-als-rot.tumblr.com/post/162404370808/onsomekingggshit-lieber-tot-als-rot" class="tumblr_blog">lieber-tot-als-rot</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://onsomekingggshit.tumblr.com/post/162404087920/lieber-tot-als-rot-rackletang-resist-at" class="tumblr_blog">onsomekingggshit</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://lieber-tot-als-rot.tumblr.com/post/162259872963/rackletang-resist-at-tacoma-washington" class="tumblr_blog">lieber-tot-als-rot</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://rackletang.tumblr.com/post/156619696916/resist-at-tacoma-washington" class="tumblr_blog">rackletang</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>#resist (at Tacoma, Washington)</p></blockquote> <p>Yeah, the difference between the hiding Jews from holocaust and modern “resistance” is that the people hiding Jews didn’t smash windows of innocent shop owners, and assault people who had nothing to do with or even support the Ruling regime </p> <p>Also, nothing going on in the west is comparable to slavery or the holocaust, and comparing trump to such is frankly offensive to those who suffered through those things.</p> </blockquote> <p>Still, though, the radical evangelical terrorism in politics, rolling back discrimination laws, EPA regulations being stripped, minorities getting killed and it being okay..
