I would just like to point out that usually, the people going on about how trans men need to be killed and the suicide baiters are usually the people posing as being for sj while also trying to make it look bad? Like, yeah, we've probably got a few assholes who honestly think that, but a lot of these, I've noticed, is /meant/ to cause drama and to discredit social justice entirely. This is just my PoV here, though, of course.
Just an addendum- sorry if it sounds like I’m automatically saying you’re wrong and that you haven’t seen actual sj bloggers posting that sort of thing. I’d just like to add in that I’ve seen a lot of times where the person posting that sort of bullshit is going about it just to antagonize people and work them into a frenzy. If that makes any sense?
This seems to be the case a lot of the time, though while I’d prefer not to namedrop, some very influential people in the “trans community” or whatever you’d call it have legitimately suicide baited trans men as a group (I can’t recall suicide baiting a specific person, but it seems likely). I remember one of them saying awhile ago that they would try to stop doing that, though, so I guess that’s a plus.
I’d honestly prefer not to make this into some sort of opinionated blog (because voicing opinions isn’t really my thing), so all I’m going to say is that social justice is fine until someone says something that has a good chance of harming someone else.

WHAT DO YOU WANT US TO DO, WEED OUT EVERY RACIST/SEXIST/HOMOPHOBE? Dont be such a fucking pissbaby?! Theres bigger problems thAn social justtice bloggers tbh

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

(note: i don’t check activity on this blog, so if you have a reply, send it in an ask)

really i won’t hate anyone who disagrees with what i said but like? at least tell me why you disagree if you’re gonna bother sending a message like i really do not care if you respect me as a human or not

i’m not the original owner of this url, but i’ll add my two cents…

the person who wrote that post isn’t necessarily wrong, but they’re missing the point. the reason social justice bloggers say “all x are bad” is to get people’s attention because enough of them are bad and they don’t want anyone ignoring a message by saying “not all x are bad though! i’m certainly not a bad x!” because there are just some things you can’t avoid when you’re in a majority group. no one hates you because of how you were born, but when someone calls out something x tend to do, please listen. if it doesn’t apply to you, then great. and if it does, correct what you were doing and live on. please
