Wow, you clearly don't know any Tumblr feminists other than me.

"tumblrina" is the name for the extremist variety of tumblr social justice keyboard warriors, that or "radflake". real feminists used to fight for gender equality. nowadays, the only way to be able to call oneself a "feminist" without radical backlash is to tattoo "misandry" on your forehead. which is wrong, obviously. if you look in the "worst of social justice" thread you'll see what i'm getting at.

oh, and blue is for sarcasm, because as a guy, i'm not about to say stupid shit like that. i may be crazy, but i'm not a hypocrite.

Um, in the 2nd example, they're both sexist.

Also not sure what to think about the use of white as the default.
Well those are just stick figures so white is the default. You can make a black and white stick figures and unless you make some stick figures different (like in the upper example) there is no way of knowing if the "regular" ones are supposed to be white or just default that way.

Besides, the point is that people have a double standard where the same message is seen sexist/racist depending on the victim. Yes, both of the examples about sexism were examples of sexism but some people believe that only women can be victims of sexism (check your privilege etc.) Meanwhile in the upper example the same insult, which makes no implications about the other persons race, is seen as racist only when the victim is black. The fact that we have no proof that they are being insulted BECAUSE they are black might not matter to some people.

Double standards.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

All left in the dust by total non-suicide firearm homicides and automobile deaths each by nearly an order of magnitude.

I hate to say it, but if you want to prioritize holding the police accountable for killing people, the probability of getting killed by them isn't the best argument to use.

That would depend on whom they are serving and protecting. The wealthy have always enjoyed the privilege of using police as a tool to their own ends.

It's no big surprise that certain socioeconomic demographics who make the wealthy uncomfortable are the target of more police brutality.

I don't think it's a probability argument, it's a "something is not working properly" argument. The implication is that police killings are so common that something is fucked up (and therefore we have an opportunity for fixing it and saving ~1000 lives a year).

Or maybe not. I mean, that's the point I would be making if I were sending that message, but I'm not the person who made the pic.

I read it as pro cop. They kill people almost 10 times better than everything else on that list combined!

I don't think anything substantial will change for the Palestinians until Israeli leaders are held accountable for violating international law.

You can promote dialogue all you want but, as the vastly more powerful and well-funded colonizers, Israel has no incentive to change its ways.
