Only on tumblr are things like "dead men don't catcall" acceptable but "don't bully cis people" is problematic. From a non binary person, thank you for what you do.
And on tumblr, somehow these messages aren’t promoting violence or hatred and are totally acceptable because it’s is just ‘venting’:
(A IMAGE CLEARLY SHOWING A BLOODY KNIFE WITH THE PHRASE ‘KILL ALL MEN’ IF THIS DOESN’T PROMOTE HATE OR VIOLENCE I DON’T KNOW WHAT DOES’)
But this somehow promotes hate crimes by cis people against trans people because it dares to say not to bully someone over how they were born and identify themselves, there is no implication on who the ‘assholes’ are. Are they fucking implying that trans people are the ‘assholes’? I’m in awe. These people are so backwards as all hell.
And this somehow implies ‘violence against feminists’:
What it literally is saying is ‘real feminists don’t hate men’. NOTHING ELSE. REAL feminists who want equality don’t resort to misandry like the examples above. And to the people saying I’m not allowed to tell women how to think of men, I have lived as a woman for my entire life, even though I don’t identify as one and is not able to live differently. But that doesn’t mean my experiences as a woman don’t count. Also, the dog has blood in his mouth, to show that it is not afraid to fight back against misandry or bigoted hatred. (and in this case, men) Nowhere is it implied that it killed a feminist or whatever, maybe it just got in a fight, who knows, it is all interpretations people imagine.
Could they have been worded better? Maybe, but all the people who are telling me it promotes violence, are look past the fucking picture, because none of that is fucking outright displayed. People twisted my message to promote equality as a response to the ‘kill all men’ bullshit pastel graphics I have been seeing. And it has pissed me off.
