"Join HYDRA, it’s a really good idea." — loads of totally normal people, apparently.
i imagine both steve and bucky like to come up with different ways to poke fun at sam every time they pass him during jogging
because they are shitheads
(the first one is a print you can get here)
i fucking hate tumblr so much seriously
you guys are always like “i want equality!” except gay people are better than straight people and women are better than men and poc are better than white people and trans people are better than cis people
if you claim you want equality, but put someone down because they’re privileged, that doesn’t make you an advocate for equality, it makes you an asshole
The thing is, you’re looking at these posts with the wrong expectation. Basically, there are two types.
The first type is not meant for you to read (the straight white cis men, not necessarily OP), merely as a release for the person writing it and others reading it. This may come as a shock, but oppression sucks. In a tough situation where there is no one concrete culprit, humans tend to focus their anger on a group of people because it’s more satisfying than to be angry at an abstract system of injustice. We do this all the time when we rage against the president, or our boss, or a teacher. Its just a way to deal with the anger. It’s nothing personal, these people would not actually shout at you if they knew you (unless you’re actually an asshole, which is entirely possible).
And sometimes, oppressed groups need to tell themselves they’re better than their oppressor, because they’ve been told their whole lives that they are lesser, that they are nothing, or deluded, or don’t exist.
The second type IS meant for you, and its purpose is to make you recognize when you commit microaggressions and rectify them on future occasions. This is understandably uncomfortable for you, and it may make you feel persecuted. You need to understand that this momentary discomfort is absolutely nothing compared to years of daily aggression. And when you see a post like “straight white cis dudes always be doing this one thing” your reaction should not be “BUT I’M NOT LIKE THAT, WE’RE NOT ALL LIKE THAT” it should be “Do I do that? Do my friends do that? I should watch out for that.”
"WHO are you making out with," james will demand seventh year, loudly, betrayed bc sirius has not told him and there are HICKEYS on his NECK. "i keep looking on the map but all i ever see u do is hanging out while remus studies in that empty transfiguration class room, what the heck man."
When watching a show I don’t think ‘Well politically correctly there should be two more minorities’
I’m thinking ‘This is suffocating, this isn’t what life is like, why do i not exist, why do my friends not exist, what the fuck is with this idealisation of one type of person?’
