All gay people regardless of political opinion, economic or social standing are allies in the great effort to bring about a more inclusive society, except gay white men, they’re not nearly as marginal enough and only want to take the system for themselves.

There are some truly insane (and I’m using that vvord literally, friends) folks on tumblr, and poking their bee hive is fun.
Hi, would you mind dying? Thanks!
*pokes your beehive*
Btw, you really should try a trade school because you are not going to be able to finish your degree with your brain. :)
Riley displays another great example for allies: making fun of someone for attending a, shall we say, less that prestigious school is A-OK if you’re really mad at someone for righteous reasons. Even if it’s hypocritical, and the blogger in question isn’t attending the highfalutinist of learning institutions, it’s still A-OK.

Accusing someone of gaslighting is totally not tone policing. It’s just a way of monitoring someone’s speech. Very different.

If you’re going to write fiction, remember the Great Social Justice Paradox:
1. If your writing doesn’t include PoCs, you’re whitewashing.
2. If your writing does include PoCs, you’re appropriating.
But whatever you do, don’t regard this paradox as a Zen koan, because that would totally be culture theft.

“Neoliberal” is the kind of term that has far outgrown its outdated dictionary definition. Did you know that anything perpetuated by leftists that disagrees with your revolutionary lifestyle is neoliberalism? It’s true (because I want it to be)!
