i despise the term “social justice.”
it makes the issue sound abstract.
it makes it sound like talking about oppression and inequality is a hobby. like something we do in our spare time for kicks but forget about completely when we’re not blogging.
there is nothing fucking abstract about these topics.
when i talk about the oppression of women, of the queer community, of PoC - that’s not me blowing hot air about academic topics that i view objectively. i am talking about shit that directly affects me every fucking day irl. i am talking about the inescapable truths that i face every day and they are sucky and dangerous and upsetting and scary and VERY, VERY REAL.
what you guys refer to as “social justice” with a smirk and a scoff are issues that shape and affect my fucking life. “social justice” does not stop when i get off tumblr for the night and go out with my friends or go to class or go to see a movie or watch tv. this isn’t about fucking blogging. it’s about discussing and fighting against a real, concrete system that is specifically engineered to make the world scary and dangerous for me and people like me.
there is absolutely nothing abstract about that.
THANK THE FUCKING LORD SOMEONE ACTUALLY SAID THIS.
