The frightening thing is that, like most of their other campaigns against women, they see themselves as just warriors fighting for what’s right. This is primarily because they firmly believe that any woman who speaks up on women’s issues is completely disingenuous and only doing it for the purposes of self-promotion, and that any man who does is looking to get laid, because they actually cannot possibly imagine a scenario in which someone would genuinely give a shit about women.
 
Members of this board, as well as “Men’s Rights Activists” in general, tend to go apoplectic at even the most mild implications that women might be human beings. For them, this is simply “not allowed” and must be punished swiftly and severely, as they appear to believe that feminism is the one obstacle in the way of all these pathetic neckbeards getting their pick of supermodel girlfriends who obey their every whim. The goal is to make it as uncomfortable to speak out about misogyny and women’s issues as possible, which is why they go to the wall in terms of harassing women like Emma Watson. At the end of the day, this is the crux of it. It would be sad if it weren’t so vile.

Pop culture criticism is always conducted with live ammunition. Watch where you’re aiming. 

Comfort the afflicted. Afflict the comfortable.

It’s no less true for critics and academics than for journalists.

To be fair, I would describe academia as the opposite of a live fire exercise. 

It shouldn’t be, though.

Then what should it be?

It should be an exchange of complex ideas and worldviews, from multiple perspectives, shared with sincerity and honest and without engaging in bullying or being deliberately obtuse, with the ultimate goal of synthesizing a “gestalt” perspective on the world - a perspective that better reflects the lived experiences of real, individual human beings from all walks of life and circumstances.

Yeah, I can live with that.

honestly this idea that “they’re criticizing moffat, not you, so it doesn’t affect you personally and it isn’t harmful!” is disgusting

there’s certainly a point to be made that when you call my favorite writer trash, when you say that he’s absolutely meritless and how he ruined an amazing show, the show that i love, it honestly sounds like you’re saying that i’m trash, that i don’t know what i’m talking about, that because i like him i’m a bad fan, a bad feminist

and then it gets worse, when you say that river song is an awful character and a terrible role model and absolutely worthless, because i couldn’t comfortably identify with my current secuality without her, and she made me not so scared of growing older because she was an example of how youth =/= beauty

and then you say that amy and clara are sluts for wearing short skirts and i pull my own down self-consciously because if they’re sluts then what am i, and you berate amy for not being “normal” enough and i shrink back into myself because i’m not “normal” either and i already struggle with that enough being an artist and being fat and being depressed and being introverted, and i wonder when my worth became dependent on who can relate to me

and then you say that amy isn’t real and that no one can relate to her and i remember again that i am no one, and then you say the same for clara and i remember that it’s wrong to be scared and i feel myself mattering less and less to the conversation even though by rights no man should tell me that i’m a bad feminist and no straight person should tell me how to feel about a bisexual character, someone like me, the only fictional character i’ve ever found like me

and then you tell me that criticism does not equal hate, and if i just read these metas i would understand, and how we must not be watching the same show and how i’m not being a good feminist or a good fan or a good bisexual or a good anything, and again and again i am wrong and ignorant and problematic and harmful to the cause and deserve to be assaulted, deserve to be harmed, deserve to be dead because you don’t like that i like someone you don’t, day after day after day for over a year and then i start to believe you

i’m not sure when we started to think that criticism was above critique of its own and that you can never ever be problematic if you’re doing something “in the name of feminism” and how even questioning these people makes you wrong but when you say that it doesn’t affect me personally i want you to go into my inbox and think about why anon is off
