“Many of us crucify ourselves between two thieves - regret for the past and fear of the future.”

…thinking that as I submit n00dz, both on a personal and social level, haha.
oh my goodness gracious. *fans himself*
You always speak the truth.
you keep saying “we’re all human” but all i hear is “i want to completely ignore institutionalised oppression and shut my eyes and pretend everyone is treated equally to escape the guilt of the numerous privileges i’m afforded”
Whenever I hear dudes say that feminists don’t want equality they want a matriarchy im just like wow so what you’re saying is that having a society ruled by one sex is a bad thing?
“…Christianity is big in the African American community, but there are no presentations of us. I took it upon myself to include people of color in these classic scenarios.”

If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones. — Jane Espenson (from interview with Advocate.com)

An even bigger issue is that if people think social justice is about niceness, it means they have fundamentally misunderstood privilege. Privilege does not mean you live in a world where people are nice to you and never insult you. It means you live in a world in which you, and people like you, are given systematic advantages over other people. Being marginalised does not mean people are always nasty to you, it means you live in a world in which many aspects of the cultural, social and economic systems are stacked against people like you. Some very privileged people have had awful experiences in life, but it does not erase their privilege. —

When people think being mean is oppressive, they just show they have no concept of what oppression is.
