Tea Leaves and Tantrums

I'm a little teapot.

A Voice For Men (MRA website) founder Paul Elam would rather see a male rapist walk the street freely than charged for his crime.

He admits that he would never convict a rapist, even one who is unequivocally guilty.  He claims it’s because the “system is rigged” (ironically, it is, but not in favor of the victim), but it’s obvious that he would really do this because he doesn’t think rape should be a crime.

Manslation (of Elam): I care so little about victims of sexual assault that I have openly made it my personal mission and enlisted my personal army to ensure that none of them can receive justice or feel safe again. I know I’ve claimed to care about male victims, but I truly don’t give a damn about them, either, otherwise I wouldn’t be working to create a system where no victims are taken seriously. I’m apparently racist as well as a misogynist fuckhead because instead of using my status, time, and energy to do something about the blatant injustices men of color face literally every day from the police and the courts, I’m using it to do everything I can to harm sexual assault victims in a deep and lasting way. I am a harrowing nightmare of a person. Someone please construct a catapult that will fling me into the sun.

Not when you are laying around the house, not when you go to the grocery store, not when you sit in a classroom, not when you go to the gym. You are never obligated to get dressed up just so you are pretty for others.

Pretty is not the rent you pay to exist in the world as a woman. 

I didn’t know this was exclusive to women

A dozen part-time UPS workers in Minneapolis took protest action on the job August 22, after discovering ties between Missouri law enforcement and a company, Law Enforcement Targets, whose shipments we handle each day.

Some of us removed the company’s packages from trucks that would deliver them to law enforcement. Others, in solidarity, refused to ferry these packages to their intended trailers.

Others posed with a sign reading “#handsupdontship.” The phrase “hands up, don’t shoot” has come to symbolize protest over the police shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed, black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri.

We decided we could not be silent while our work was contributing to the militarized violence that police are directing at Ferguson residents in the aftermath of Brown’s death.

This is high-stakes activism. These workers are at risk losing their jobs for this. Well done, UPS folks, for sticking to your principles.

When will they learn

This shit ain’t funny at all. I don’t know why these white dudes think it’s okay to walk up to people, blatantly insult them, then think nothing should happen. Then people look at the Black folks in the vids like THEY’RE wrong.

Not only do we have to worry about the police coming into our neighborhoods and killing us but we have to deal with shit like this too. 

The more things change the more they stay the same. White people have been doing this shit for years only in the old days it was a trap and usually ended up with lynching. 

Shit like this is the reason gangs exist - to keep idiots like this out of the neighborhood and keep peace. 

These fucking clowns deserve to get stomped. 

If blacks and browns went into rich white areas and did this they would be in prison for a few years and couldn’t just yell out shit like “this is a social experiment, officers”

Let’s also not forget that this asshole is making light of real fucking tragedies in black and brown communities that ruin and end the lives of real fucking people yeah why don’t you, a white dude, who benefits from the dehumanization of black and brown bodies, walk into black and brown communities and make fun of the fact that a society dominated by you sees them as second-class citizens

fucking white people sometimes I cannot

I cannot get over the arrogance of straight white boys that they think they can wander into neighbourhoods largely populated by black and brown people and laugh at their expense, and face no repercussions? 

Make a “joke” about date raping a woman?
Make racist “jokes” of black people to black people?
"Joke" by pretending to syphon petrol off of people?

They do it because they want to get a reaction. Because the reaction of the black and brown people they’re harassing might fit a stereotype they’re so desperate to fill.

If you came up to me and told me a sexist joke, or a homophobic joke, or pretended to date rape someone, or stole petrol from my car that I had bought with my own money I would kick your sorry arse from here to the next life. Of COURSE these people are angry. OF COURSE they’ll lash out. Hoe fucking dare they use their pain and anger as entertainment? Fucking scum.

Can everyone stop fucking encouraging them to harass marginalised groups, please. Those people have enough to deal with without adding white cishet dudebros and their shit “pranks” to the list. It’s cruel, it’s tacky and most importantly it’s totally fucking racist.

"Reverse racism is real! When I go into those neighborhoods, I feel like I’m in hostile territory!”

Yeah, and it’s hostile territory that YOU created, asshat.
