hey, i understand not caring about tumblr's "DONT SAY STUPID!! ITS ABLEIST!" thing because i dont care about it either, but you shouldnt say retarded. that is actually ableist.

the-bigender-bee answered:

I don’t view retarded as ableist because I don’t see people who are “mentally retarded” as retarded. I see stupid people as retarded. I don’t associate people with disabilities as retarded. I use retarded as a synonym for stupid, not an insult to people who are called “mentally retarded” (Which I think was changed because it’s an outdated term)

okay but that doesnt change the fact that its been used very commonly in the past against neuroatypical people. the fact that YOU dont see it as that doesnt mean shit. this is something ive literally watched happen before (i mean this word being used against people), so i can say with 100% certainty that it happens. 

you say you hate closed-minded people, but youre literally saying something isnt offensive because you dont see it that way

Alright, I see your point there

I say restarted all the time refuring stupid people all the time and i am mentality disabled so who the fuck cares let her say what she wants saying that doesn’t make u a better more caring person

What are your thoughts on rape culture? Do you believe it exists? There's this girl I'm following that doesn't believe in it and she's super illiterate so I don't know what she's saying half the time. Can you explain why some people think it doesn't exist?

miss-andrea answered:

"Rape culture" implies a society wherein rape is condoned, encouraged, or just not looked down upon. Most, if not all, first world countries fit into none of those categories when it comes to male-on-female rape. Prison sentences for rapists are harsh and rapists are treated terribly in prison (except for prison rapists but we’ll get to that later). Furthermore, we (Americans, at least) live in a society where a woman can say "He raped me!" about any man she wants and her word will be taken as gospel. This man’s face will be plastered all over the local papers, he’ll lose his job, his friends, and he’ll be disowned by his family. This is true even if he’s acquitted because he was in a different country at the time she claimed he raped her. The word was still out there, and everyone already sees him as a rapist. Best case scenario, his life is ruined. Now he has to move to another state and hope that nobody does it again. If we lived in a society where rape culture were real, would this be possible? Could innocent men have their entire lives destroyed at the drop of a hat? No. If rape culture were real, all claims of rape would be dismissed.

On the other hand, female-on-male rape culture is very real. “Men can’t get raped!” and “Women can’t rape men!” are very common phrases to hear. Take, for example, the woman that repeatedly raped an 8 year old boy. She got a slap on the wrists as a punishment. Feminists claimed that boys can’t get raped. They said he enjoyed it so it wasn’t really rape. What if the roles were reversed? If a grown adult man repeatedly had sex with an 8 year old girl that enjoyed it, he’s still a rapist. Nobody would say “she enjoyed it so it wasn’t rape” or “oh he’s really sorry so don’t punish him that much.” He would get a prison sentence of 600 years and wouldn’t make it the first week before he got gutted by 3 men in front of a completely indifferent prison guard. Those 3 men would get out of prison for good behavior by the end of the month. So, clearly, male-on-female rape culture does not exist, while female-on-male rape culture is alive and well. When a man says “I got raped” the usual responses are “nice” and “good job” but when a woman gets raped there’s a witch hunt and people are probably beheaded in the streets.

On the third hand, "rape culture" comes from prison. Male prison. The place where rape is so common you’re less likely to stub your toe than get a dick in your butt. People get traded like property. I’m sure I don’t need to explain to you all the details of prison rape and the issues of prison rape, because you probably already have an idea of what goes on in there. What you don’t realize is that it’s almost certainly much, much worse than you imagine. Feminists took the term and applied it to the real world because their victim complex wasn’t sufficiently large. Despite men and women being raped at same rates outside of prison, they still have the gall to claim that rape is a woman’s issue and 90% of rapists are men. In reality, only 60% of rapists are men. Men and women get raped in almost identical amounts outside of prison, and when you factor in prison, men are raped a lot more than women are.

Really, I shouldn’t have to explain any of these things. Anyone with half a brain can see that we don’t actually condone rape in first world countries when the victim is a woman. Anyone with half a brain can see that nobody gives a shit about punishing female rapists or caring for male rape victims. Anyone with half a brain can see that feminists are all heartless harpies hellbent on playing the victim at every possible opportunity, even when they have the upper hand.

And before you say it, no, rape jokes are not “rape culture.” They’re making light of an otherwise terrible crime. That doesn’t encourage rape, it tries to make it less grim. People joke about dark things all the time. Murder jokes, holocaust jokes, 9/11 jokes, whatever. Sure a lot of them are in bad taste and sometimes are wildly inappropriate, but it’s not like anyone is encouraging murder or genocide. It’s just a coping mechanism to try and get ourselves away from how impossibly shitty the world is.

As long as it isn’t a saftey hazard, I don’t see why we can’t have them. And yeah, if the tattoo is inappropriate or if your plugs have something inappropriate on them, then I can see why they would want them covered up it taken out. But if you have blue hair and the store or whatever wont hire you because of that, fuck them. I like your blue hair, I’ll hire you.
