medievalpoc:

[TW: harassment, threats, stalking, violence, slurs, racism]

So, someone decided to post this submission with a link to medievalpoc to a subreddit called “Tumblr In Action” this morning.

I’ve posted about this before.

Let’s stop pretending we have no idea where this comes from:

And can we stop pretending as if these supposed “rules” actually mean anything, or are ever actually enforced:

Medievalpoc has received tens of thousands of hits from this particular subreddit from more than 60 separate threads, some of which have hundreds of derogatory comments, using slurs, threats, and racist ‘jokes’.

And it is somehow a “coincidence” that I have had to speak to police four times and make official reports due to threats, stalking, harassment, and other nastiness? That people have followed me around in person without my knowledge or consent because of this? People have circumvented the “ignore” function by creating accounts just to send racial slurs and threats.

The rest of this is going under a cut, because it is truly horrific. Please proceed with caution.

"BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MEN?!" - Is Feminism Sexist? (x)

Guess what? Feminism is beneficial for men. But even if it wasn’t, empowering women shouldn’t be limited or defined by what men think is important.

If you’re Christian I hope you don’t believe asexuality exists because you are implying you and/or others are immune from sinful lust, which is applying divine properties to humans and therefore defying crucial theological principles.

It’s just in asexuals are actually have divine properties 

lmao oh my goodness

finally the recognition i deserve, the godly kind

No, I got that part when you screamed it in the tags. And it’s not just a coke bottle. It’s a microaggression and those build up. Quickly.

[Cross-posted from “The Comment Section" on Asexuality Archive]

Examples:

  • Another label for the collectivists to place onto the scales of social justice?
  • oh for gods sake, enough with the labels. good grief
  • I don’t really see any problems with any of this but the need to define and put names on things seems kind of compulsive.

Why these comments are a problem:

Words are important.  They’re how we describe concepts.  They’re how we communicate.  I can say that I’m tall, and you understand something about me instantly.  You take that word away, and I have to fumble around for something of equivalent meaning.  “I’m greater than average height”?  Well, what’s “average height”?  And how much greater?  Not to mention that four letters has become four words.

On top of that, many identity terms are personal.  When someone says that they’re Jewish or Australian, that word is part of who they are.  It’s often deeply ingrained in how they relate to the world.  It’s a complex package of meaning in a deceptively simple container.

“Asexual” is a word that I need.  It’s a word that many others need.  For years, I had no idea what I was, what was wrong with me.  And then, one day, I found a word.  A word that described me.  A word where I belonged.  A word that meant I wasn’t broken.  If you take that away, I am lost and broken again.  Without that word, I am invisible.

To be clear, these comments aren’t people saying, “I wish we didn’t have to have labels.  I wish we could all just be ourselves.”  These are people saying “You do not need that word.  You can’t have it.”  They are attempting to dismiss and delegitimize us.

How to respond:

  • Let the person know how important it is to have a word that describes how you feel.
  • Explain that although they may not see the need for the word themselves, you, personally, need that word.
  • Explain that words are important for communication of abstract concepts.  (This response is often best delivered in full-on snark mode.)

Bryan Fuller on Hannigram shippers (x)

This fandom is the best fandom.

Amidst the waves of fandom vs. creator hate gushing over Tumblr right now, I think we should take a moment to appreciate the real fandom-loving creator.
He ships Hannigram, adores fanart, gave the actors flower crowns after seeing the edits, embraces ‘swiggity swag the nightmare stag’ and even gave a fan’s suggested name to one of the dogs in the show! He loves his fans and even encourages them to view the show however they please and go as far as they want to.
Thank you, lovely Bryan Fuller, you are the best!

He does it right.
