Will somebody please tell goddamazon that encouraging people to kill themself is not okay?
Regardless of what you think of what I said, this is fucked up.
Fucking CLASSY response there.
Since you’re urging people who weren’t in the conversation to begin with to be telling off people…
Nope. Not okay to tell anybody to kill themselves. But how’s about you stay the heck out of her ask if you don’t want to hear what she has to say?
You’re policing her life and her religion in HER askbox, and you were getting pretty damn high and mighty about it too, without even knowing what words mean. And then YOU have the nerve to get pissy when she reacts with angry-sounding words when YOU butted into HER space lecturing HER about HER life.
If she’d looked you up on your blog and told you to kill yourself, yeah, then I’d be taking issue, but you pushed your nose into her ask with a patronising and incorrect lecture on what shit means to her, when you should know damn well that she knows that better than you.
And now you go whining to your friends to come to your aid because someone told you off for being obnoxious.
Yeah, what if you’d been triggered by this? Yeah, what if? Clearly you weren’t or you wouldn’t have kept posting to her ask nor would you be whining like this using it as leverage to get people to gang up on the woman your white-privileged self just talked down to. If you were at risk of being triggered by angry words, then maybe you shouldn’t go police other people’s lives and doings and completely ignoring what they tell you, thinking you know them and their lives better than they do themselves. See, that kind of behaviour does tend to cause angry words to be said - and with good reason.
And this trigger excuse. Yeah, I have triggers myself, but you know what? I am sick and fucking tired of seeing my fellow white women using triggers as a get-out-of-being-called-on-your-privileged-shit-free card. Triggers are real, as I’m sure you know, they’re not a damn “what if I had them”-thing. So if you insist on using triggers in a what-if-capacity, how about next time you feel like lecturing a person of colour on their life, their choices, their religion, the meaning of the words they choose to describe themselves, you stop and think “what if that person will be triggered by my patronising attitude?” and then you don’t do/say whatever it is you were going to.
Right now you’re just pulling a classic example of how the white woman’s feelings are the only ones that should be cared for. Where was your concern for people’s feelings when you were being an ass to the goddamazon? Hm? Nowhere? That’s what I thought.
And if you insist on holding a pity party - at least do it without the whole “please help me gang up on this person who was mean to me because I was being condescending to them” it tends to work better that way.
I just found this. Ha.
