Pardon that is sudden, but if you don't want to hear a rant, I suggest you don't read this journal.
I've taken a hiatus from the internet, and I haven't been keeping up on my accounts, but this morning I found myself browsing tumblr, when I rolled across an ask.
The ask read, and I quote; "ACTUALLY, social justice warriors are just trying to do what you white cis fucks have been doing to us for thousands of years so we have a right to be aggressive to you."
I'm not sure if any of you remember tumblr, three years ago. Back before all of the changes in layout and tos, back when there wasn't so much hate, but I remember that it used to be such a friendly place, where no matter who you are, you could make friends and be accepted.
I've noticed that as the community has grown, so has the hate. Segregation continues, and I see people that used to get along hurting eachother. I remember when the amount of hate on tumblr was "OH, JamJars did..." or "Ugh, she runs a hipster blog and I run an anime blog."
What happened? Everyone thinks the world is taking steps in the right direction, but are we? While we continue to pass laws legalizing, we're making social laws that are ruining such great progress, when I read that ask I was appauled. It was as if an African American treated you like shit and called you scum because "You did it to my ancestors for years."
Yeah, yeah we did. We as a nation, and as a world, have exciled and mistreated people of other colors, and races, but is that not entirely in the past? Have you not been forgiven hundreds of times, have laws not been passed to protect you???
Just because something happened in the past that's absolutely no reason to use it as a reason to fight in the future. If you want to see the world move on to bigger and better things, people are going to have to change.
You can't abuse CIS gendered people just as much as you can't abuse a Trans* gendered person. Because, they're both people. You don't abuse people. People are equal and everyone should see that, just because someone is proud of having a vagina, and a boyfriend doesn't mean you can harass them daily. What are you doing?
Are you taking out your hatred because some CIS person once was disgusted by yourself and your gay lover? It sucked didn't it. It make you hurt, it made you doubt the true love you indeed felt.
You know you're making them feel the same way? By telling them why they deserve it you're making it even worse.
I'm disgusted by what the internet has turned into, it's the people who are bullied in real life that come home and take an anonymous face on the internet, the ones that release the anger they have for everyone else on someone who truly doesn't deserve it.
I'm sorry that this is a new trend that I do not, and will not follow. My friends who are CIS are just as loving and caring as all of my friends who aren't. Because unlike some people, I'm moving on from the past. I'm embracing the future. And in the future, we're all the same.
