Anonymous said: i've followed you for a while and i love how you call out bad anti sj people now. some anti sj people seem to think that talking more about sexism and racism or other -isms and recognizing them as legitimate problems is "becoming a sjw." a lot of anti sj people are just as bad as the social justice warriors they hate so passionately, and a lot of them are legitimately racist or misogynistic (see logicd, cap.) thank you for being a voice of reason among the insanity

imperialfloraldivision:

thank you for the kind message!

i only follow anti-sj blogs that are run by excellent people (such as (but not limited to!) cosmopolitanspook, social-darwin-awards, and logiciskawaii) precisely because so many are either backwards, ill-informed, or respond to certain social injustices in the ways you’ve described above.

when i chose to step away from the label, it was both because it’s really hard to convince people of your viewpoint when the first thing they hear from you is “anti [x]”, and my growing dislike of repetitive social justice jokes that just missed the mark and headed south.

most anti-sj blog i follow were around during my stint as an anti-sj blog and are still good, though the people who run them have since become everything-but-i-still-talk-about-sj-topics blogs (much like my own); the others i’ve followed after quite a bit of scrolling and background checks. 

While I appreciate the sentiment, I am not an anti-SJ blog either.

Quote 17 Sep 4 notes
This is no day for the rabble-rouser, whether he be Negro or white.We must realize that we are grappling with the most weighty social problem of this nation, and in grappling with such a complex problem there is no place for misguided emotionalism. We must work passionately and unrelentingly for the goal of freedom, but we must be sure that our hands are clean in the struggle. We must never struggle with falsehood, hate, or malice. We must never become bitter. I know how we feel sometime. There is the danger that those of us who have been forced so long to stand amid the tragic midnight of oppression—those of us who have been trampled over, those of us who have been kicked about—there is the danger that we will become bitter. But if we will become bitter and indulge in hate campaigns, the new order which is emerging will be nothing but a duplication of the old order.
— Martin Luther King Jr., Give Us the Ballot, 1957 (via hatey-mchaterson)
Quote 17 Sep 10 notes
In the past, yes, I have made sweeping indictments of all white people. I will never be guilty of that again — as I know now that some white people are truly sincere, that some truly are capable of being brotherly toward a black man. The true Islam has shown me that a blanket indictment of all white people is as wrong as when whites make blanket indictments against blacks.
— As quoted in Malcolm X: The Seeker of Justice (2003)

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).

Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.

Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.

Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?

People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.

Feminist: What, so women are just objects of male desire now? We have no autonomy for ourselves, we’re just a prop you can use to throw at…
