of course we can’t do that. and i’ve been thinking a lot lately, so i’ll put down my thoughts:
social justice bloggers aren’t a problem at all until they become verbally violent. for example, in my experience, i’ve seen social justice bloggers describe killing trans men (specifically trans men) in very gruesome ways, just because they’re men and apparently trans men have the same privileges as cis men. sjb have gotten to the point where they’re toxic within their own community.
the problem isn’t the occasional “i hate cis people” or “i hate white people” or whatever. it’s the doxxing, death threats, suicide baiting, and the like towards people who openly disagree with them. and usually sjb never have a rebuttal for people that disagree with them, they just go straight to harassment.
here’s some notable examples of
- cisphobia (as much as i hate calling it that because what cis people face on here is nothing compared to what trans people face irl, but i’m just using cisphobia as a blanket term for when people are harassed for being cis. cisphobia isn’t real outside of social justice tumblr.)
- heterophobia (same thing applies)
- general doxxing
- general death wishes
- and more
even if these are vents, there are more ways to vent than by telling people to die. no one should be told to die. which is where that old post comes in (“majorities aren’t the problem; bigots are the problem”).
now, don’t get me wrong, a simple “i hate it when men do this” or “why do men always do that” kind of post isn’t bad. those kinds of posts can actually be helpful to men (in this case) in being less sexist or whatever. but telling people to kill themselves helps no one. do not tell people to kill themselves jfc
to be honest, i would consider myself a social justice blogger if other sjbs weren’t so toxic
