I, for one, want to see a Straight Pride parade just to see what would be in it. I imagine it looking like a traffic jam with flags.
Since when did “Donate” buttons become fixtures on peoples blogs? This isn’t your dreams where you get paid to reblog color-corrected pictures of hipsters doing stupid shit.
UCSB shooter’s manifesto, who, although the son of a British father and Asian mother, identified only as white because he “looked normal”. His anger was fueled by ideas that as a white male, he was denied his birthright: meaning “beautiful blonde white women”.
In the last 20 years, all but one school shooting were committed by white men, to shed some light on why gun control is ignored in this country.
That last line is outright bullshit. One thing that I can’t stand, regardless of the topic, is the spread of misinformation.
“At Penn State University in 1996, 19-year-old Jillian Spencer, who was trained in the Army Reserve as a sharpshooter, opened fire on random students. Latina Williams, a 23-year-old nursing student at Louisiana Technical Institute, killed two classmates in 2008. Finally, in 2010, Professor Amy Bishop shot six colleagues in the biology department at the University of Alabama.”
The article lists several cases of non-white-male shooters and concludes saying “This brief review has included 20 school shooters who were not white males (22, if Jason Hoffman and Robert Flores were of Latino descent). White male shooters may be more common than those who are neither white nor male, but we should not let this become a stereotype. For one thing, it is inaccurate and fails to take account of a significant percentage of school shooters. Most importantly, however, if we think that the only people who commit rampage attacks at schools are white males, we will be blind to those at risk of massive violence who do not fit the profile in our minds. And that could be tragic.”
I think the thing people don’t realize with that bullshit “well not all guys are dangerous, you should give them a chance” or what the fuck ever is like
if i had a plate of cookies and i was like yeah, a few of them have laxatives in them and one’s got cyanide in there, BUT THEY’RE NOT ALL LIKE THAT
you’re probably not gonna take a fucking cookie
There is no need to mince words here; this is a fucking awful analogy.
If you equate not profiling men with eating cyanide cookies, I feel sorry for you.
I don’t even use this site anymore and I’ve unfollowed like a dozen people over this shooting thing.
Leeching off of a mass shooting to further your political opinion doesn’t make you some kind of activist - it makes you a fucking scumbag.
I’m on tumblr and I’m commenting about how I don’t care about the Superbowl like the special snowflake I am.
