appropriate white culture. dance offbeat at the club. scream at your barista when she doesn’t put enough splenda in your latte. clap at the movie theater when the credits roll. put your child on a leash.

prefer to be called caucasian even if you’re not from the caucus region. only empathize with animals and yourself. write prolific dissertations on hunger games characters being oppressed then ignore oppression in real life.

Here’s the thing about trolling in regards to racism/misogyny/etc.:
It’s not a joke. It’s not fake. It’s just hate.
I try and make it very clear that this blog is satire. I try and make it crystal fuckin clear that the beliefs expressed are ridiculous and why. I am not pretending to be anyone, as deliberately thick headed as some MRAs and so called “egalitarians” can be. Just read a couple of my entries, and you can see I am not trying to fool anyone into ACTUALLY believing I am a MRA
But there are people who troll, who deliberately try and get a rise out of people by saying racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic/etc. things. And they think that this is badass or hilarious or whatever. It’s a “joke”. It’s “ironic”.
Except that it isn’t. When you are part if a privileged group, like men, and you genuinely blog misogynistic things, it’s not trolling. It’s not “just getting a rise out of feminists”. It’s actual misogyny. That sandwich joke doesn’t have some magical other intent when you tell it to some woman you don’t know on the internet because she happened to exist in the same comment thread as you. We’re not going to suddenly all join in on your laughter and call you a “scamp” or whatever the fuck it is you’re hoping for.
Because if you’re a white person posting racist shit and POC get upset, there is no difference between you and one of the white nationalists posting the same shit around here. The effect is the same on the people you’re hurting, and you are essentially writing off that pain with a wave of your hand and an exclamation of “I was only trolling.”
And if you can do that to someone, you’re lacking one of the fundamental tools an ally needs to help marginalized groups: empathy. It’s impossible for privileged groups to ever know what it’s like to be on the other side of their privilege, but you can at least look at someone and say, “holy shit, this is causing them a lot of pain. How can I help to stop this pain?” And listen to what they need from you, from people willing to talk about it. And if you can deliberately cause that kind of pain in some twisted ass hipster version of “comedy”, you’re essentially saying that you do not care about the pain you cause, that people need to just “get over” a kind of pain you’ve never experienced. It’s like a person who has never broken a bone telling a person with a broken leg to “walk it off”. You’re just a dick.
And if your point is to be a dick, if you ACTUALLY WANT to cause that pain for people from marginalized groups, if that’s your goal… Please fucking tell me how that DOESN’T make you a racist, misogynist, or whatever, because that takes some SERIOUS hate to want to CAUSE someone pain like that.

Does anyone else ever forget how good Sherlock is, or Martin or Benedict? Like you’re obsessed with it but then you rewatch it and you’re just baffled by the amazingness even though you’ve seen it 1000 times before

Congratulations to the Sherlock team! The show won 7 awards and is the biggest winner of the Emmys 2014!

graceebooks:

why is it that sherlock, a FOREIGN show, was the top emmy winner of 2014 and yet in fandom you have to like constantly apologize for liking it and do like 20 caveats about how you know it’s bad before you mention it at all

Hi um could you please explain the thing about mycroft dying? Also why is he nex to moriarty? I'm sorry if i've missed anything you posted and thank you for your time!!

don-gately:

anigrrrl2:

Of course, nonnie, it’s my pleasure!

Well, I don’t think Mycroft is going to die. Or at least, I hope not. But there is a definite trope in literature about parental figures having to die to sort of clear the way for the protagonist to grow up/mature/come into their own. Since Sherlock is clearly growing past Mycroft’s leadership, especially with the character development of last series, it would make sense that Mycroft has to get gone in order for Sherlock to come fully into his own. don-gately may want to expound on that idea a bit.

The scenes with Mycroft and Moriarty were rumoured by TPTB to be fake, a ruse, but now…with Moriarty back…a lot of us, myself included, believe they’re from a real scene. I believe LSiT talks about that scene in her M Theory, and it certainly seems that Mycroft and Moriarty are in on something together, god knows what. 

*barges in*

This is all personal and I’m not predicting anything! Also, we need to take into account that this show does not have a lot of time available for the making of a major character’s death… I just think that

  • Mycroft was conspicuously left out of the whole Mary thing.
  • So, if shit goes down with Mary, and Mary is actually Moran (in the name of coherence and thrilling plot please make that happen), and Mycroft was involved with Moriarty (an idea I like more and more, especially considering the above-mentioned Mary thing), Mycroft is going to be dragged into it and no one (meaning by that “normal non-frame-dissecting-folks) wille expect it.
  • I think the  Mycroft figure we have now, presented as both all powerful and “where the fuck were you when all that heartbreaking stuff happened” is now at a dead-end and cannot be kept in a statu-quo. They don’t let their characters stagnate, as a general rule (Sherlock got tremendous character development, we as viewers got to witness John being told that he may want to want to be normal but he’ll never be that normal bloke with the boring job and the kids and the wife in a suburb home, Molly got character development, even freakin’ Anderson).
  • So. Seeing as Mycroft also seems to know What Is Going On between our two favorite idiots, I think you would kill a flock of ostriches with one single stone by using Mycroft to make the situation MOVE FORWARD with them, Moriarty, Mary, everyone.
  • If you think Mycroft wouldn’t offer his life for Sherlock’s, given the choice… Well.

That was a lot of rambling. But something needs to be set in motion with Mycroft.
