Yo neckbeardsBefore you spout off that science fiction is a "man's" genre, as someone literally just did to me an hour ago, you might want to educate yourself on the genre's actual history.
Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein and The Last Man all the way back in the 1800's, effectively inventing our modern concept of "mad science" and the "post apocalypse" subgenre, respectively. It was her success that sparked an explosion of fantastical literature with scientific and technological themes, later dubbed "science fiction."
Later, Charlotte Perkins Gilman's wildly successful "The Yellow Wallpaper," hailed as a groundbreaking work of feminism, sparked its own wave of "weird horror" and is cited by H.P. Lovecraft as one of his biggest inspirations, his very writing style practically lifted from Gilman's.
The trends kicked off by Mary Shelley and her imitators eventually grew directly into the pulp science fiction boom of the 1930's, and a great deal of those authors were also women. Nobody kn
Devious Journal EntryIf you believe "men's rights" are a legitimate movement, that men suffer any sort of oppression or discrimination comparable to that of women and that feminism does more harm than good or is some sort of evil anti-man movement, please don't fucking follow me, comment on anything I make, or message me because you're fucking garbage. The media hasn't emphasized hard enough that the "MRA" movement is the driving force behind Elliot Rodger. He didn't kill because he was "mentally ill," he killed because he felt entitled to sex and resented both women for not worshiping him and men for "stealing" women he believed were rightfully his.Devious Journal Entry1 year ago in Personal More Like This
That is the logical conclusion of the "men's rights" mantra. That is what it teaches people. Every single person who identifies as an anti-feminist men's activist contributes to the subculture that created him and was already responsible for innumerable cases of rape.
People with "mental disorders" are not actually more likely to commit crimes. At all. They ne
Why 'reality is liberal'A lot of crazier people in America are thoroughly convinced that there's a "liberal bias" in the media. Because our news and entertainment is filled with cultural diversity, secularism, environmentalism, a growing acceptance of diverse sexual orientations and other things certain people just don't like, the only conclusion that makes sense in their mind is that there's a "bias" going on. That a small number of "liberals" happen to control the media industry and deliberately insert these attitudes to brainwash the public towards their agenda.Why 'reality is liberal'2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If anything, however, the media falls quite a bit behind the progress of the American public as a whole. Sexism, homophobia, racism and xenophobia are less evident now in our media than they were decades ago, but still a constant underlying presence, especially the way corporate sponsors still control a great deal of content and choose to appeal to the lowest, safest common denominator.

I don't think people realize how serious a problem these types are. They're tolerated all over DA under the notion that what they choose to believe and express deserves the same freedom as what everyone else believes and expresses, which is like saying that a murderer or a rapist deserve to be "tolerated" for their own cruel and harmful choices.
These people whine that they're being oppressed, that they're being met with intolerance, that their rights are being infringed when they're silenced, as if it somehow doesn't matter that

What do all of these things have in common?
They're all symptoms of the same petty defiance disorder and gross misunderstanding of the scientific world.

-Trayvon Martin was unarmed, had no history of violence, and was walking home with snacks. We have no evidence that he threatened or harmed George Zimmerman except for Zimmerman's own claims, which occured after Zimmerman defied 911 operators and continued to stalk and harass this boy he did not know, who exhibited no criminal activity. Zimmerman, meanwhile, has a history of violence and domestic abuse, including threatening an ex wife with a gun.
-No evidence demonstrates that Mike Brown commited a crime.

So, here's ten of the things I hear most often about vaccines, why they're wrong, and some relevant links.
"There's MERCURY in them!"
The claim that vaccines are dangerous because they "contain mercury" is a deliberate misunderstanding of chemistry designed to mislead the public.
Mercury is an element in the organic compound, thimerosal, in much the same way that deadly, toxic chlorine is an element in the compound sodium-chloride, otherwise known as salt - the same salt you put on your food.
Raw elements can be dangerous in their pure form, but help build entirely harmless and even strictly beneficial compounds.
Thimerosal is used as a preservative agent preventing a vaccine from becoming contaminat

Some of you, even some of my best friends, disagree with most or all of the following list and still identify yourselves as "republicans" or "conservatives." I just have to ask why? Why keep clinging to labels so inexorably entrenched in discrimination, willful ignorance and outrageous displays of villainy straight out of a derivative cartoon? The majority of so-called "right wing" Americans, including virtually all of those with any political or social power, very vocally hold at least one of the following sentiments.

art theft, copyright garbage, idfk lolart theft, copyright garbage, idfk lol1 year ago in Personal More Like This
(trigger warning. that's all i can give you since there's no blacklist system built into dA, so just a heads up.)
I just wanted to say that being on deviantart has taught me that the artist community cares a whole lot more about copyright laws than they do, say: rape, hate speech, the well-being of children, uh, being a good person, etc. and it's bothersome to me to see these ever-present delusions within the community. I've been on this site for a little while (Since 2006) and I've seen the same thing going on for years. Where this gross sense of entitlement comes from, I don't really know. I'm guessing it's just something that continuously feeds unto itself. There are few things that deviantart users care more passionately about than art theft.
Example. I recently had someone tell me that they were leaving dA for furaffinity because of the whole Realitysquared tracing debacle (which was the dumbest shit I've ever

Not only does this idiot accuse people of being pedophiles for liking smaller tits, he also mentions that big tits = woman.
Here's an excerpt from the stamp:
That's right, if you prefer smaller boobs than bigger ones, then chances are, you're a pedophile, why? Because girls have flat-chests at an early age so that's why if you like flat-chests than bigger breasts, then you're a pedophile, and you should feel bad for it.
Any woman/girl who has a flat-chest is probably jailbait so why would even be attracted to their body? You should be disgusted by it and should feel bad for even being attracted to a flat-chest body, it's best to like big tits, because bigger is better, and bigger tits makes a woman look more like a woman.
Probably jailbait? That's fucked up that you would judge people by their bodies, this stamp is not only sexist, but it's also body-shaming, transphobic and ageist.

What Freedom of Speech actually means.In America, "Freedom of Expression" and "Free Speech" refers to a constitutional right to express your opinions without being silenced or prosecuted by the government or police.What Freedom of Speech actually means.3 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is a legal protection in place so that the people can criticize the behavior of authority figures on equal grounds.
For some inexplicable reason, many people believe "Free Speech" extends further to civilian interactions. People claim their "freedom" is being violated when a website like Deviantart takes down their work, or when they experience harsh backlash for their opinions and beliefs.
In other words, call someone out on even the most vile, aggressive hate speech and they'll almost invariably fall back on some rant about their "freedom" to "express" themselves.
Unfortunately for the racists, misogynists, transphobes, homophobes and other anthropomorphic sewage, the right to free speech simultaneously means that others have the right to speak against you, and yes, police your words in their own spaces.
