I believe we still need social justice but I hate most of tumblr’s Social Justice Warriors.
I have mostly held this opinion to myself but here I go…
What I meant in that first sentance (the opinion) is:
I realize gay people do deserve the same rights (i.e. marriage, health care, other things) and they really do. I believe in it strongly. But here on tumblr the LGBTQ+s act better than straight cis people. You’re not and trying to get justice in society shouldn’t be about acting better than to the majority.
I realize racism is still a thing and POC still do not get treated equally as white people are. But just because you’re a minority doesn’t mean you can act like you are better than the majority. (Also I believe “reverse racism” is not a real thing but racism against whites are because not only is racism defined by the belief you are better than a certain race and white is a race but also in some other countries white isn’t even the majority).
I consider myself a feminist (yes i know, I know). There is still slut shaming and sexism against females both in the work place and in society but that doesn’t mean we are better than men because we are oppressed. (Also not all men are sexist and slut shamers. I am not a MRA I’m just pointing this out.)
I will admit now I do follow social justice warrior blogs but that’s because the person who posts those also posts things of my ships and I have reblogged some “social justice” things from them but definitly not the posts where they are acting better. I just reblog the normal posts about social justice.
This is probably very confusing because I controdicted myself many times but the point is I believe in Social Justice but I hate tumblr’s Social Justice Warriors and refuse to refer to myself as one because they act like they are better than anyone differant than them.
