you care about how other people feel? you fucking sjw piece of shit

Yeah, really. It couldn’t possibly be because so many of them have sent hateful messages and death threats to people and have told people to kill themselves. It couldn’t possibly be because so many generalize and demonize entire groups of people all because they’re either a part of a certain fan base or because they happen to be white or straight or a male or even simply because the person disagreed with their opinion. Nope. No siree. It has nothing to do with them caring about how other people feel. It’s because some of them are fucking assholes.
  • irrelevant and evasive to my point
  • ignores the fact that “sjws” are commonly told to die themselves, and that their anger is mostly justified
  • ignores the fact that every member of a group in power still benefits from being in that group, and still holds privilege over someone in an oppressed group
  • who gives a fuck about fan bases? that has absolutely nothing to do with what i said
  • stop posting
When you post things on the internet, people are going to see it and some might disagree with you and they might add comments. Telling me to stop posting isn’t going to make me stop posting and you really don’t have any authority to make me stop. I will apologize for my first comment, though. There was no excuse for me being as rude as I was. But I don’t see how anything I said in that response was irrelevant. It sounded to me like you were trying to imply that people have some kind of negative opinion on SJWs for no apparent reason other than “they care about how other people feel,” which isn’t the case, and I pointed out the kind of things that I’ve been seeing from some of them. How is that irrelevant? I don’t see how I’m being evasive either. If what you mean is that I didn’t acknowledge people who aren’t SJWs for doing these things, I know and I’m not excusing them either. Being a part of a privileged group doesn’t make a person any less of a human being and it doesn’t excuse bad behavior from someone just because they’re a part of an oppressed group. It’s still bad behavior. And what about the people from privileged groups that actually sympathize with you and your cause? Making posts that generalize or mock certain people alienates the people of those groups who are trying to understand your point-of-view, which doesn’t help things at all. And I agree, sending messages like that is wrong no matter who it’s from or who it’s being sent to. I know that not every SJW has engaged in that kind of behavior. My point is that there are people who have and are somehow surprised when they and their opinions aren’t taken seriously. Supporting equality is a great thing, but a person can’t look past bad behavior from one group of people and say it’s justified, then go on to point out bad behavior from another, especially when there are people from both parties that are guilty of doing the exact same thing. It doesn’t work that way.

Update State of Emergency Declared for Toledo and Surrounding Areas—Signal Boost This

tenderagender:

As you hopefully know if you live in Toledo or the areas surrounding Toledo (including parts of Michigan), the water supply has been contaminated by microcystin. It has been advised that you DO NOT ingest the water, use it to brush your teeth, use it to wash your dishes, give it to your pets, or even eat foods that have come into contact with the water. Boiling the water will only make it worse.

Recently, however, the mayor has stated that it is okay to bathe with the water if you are a healthy adult. I would just like to give warning that if you have sensitive skin, DO NOT touch the water. A friend of mine’s  sister washed her hands a short while after hearing the water was safe to bathe in, and her hands broke out in a rash.

There is no estimate as to how long this will last, but a state of emergency has been declared, and the national guard is coming to pass out more water.

13ABC is attempting to keep people updated on where to get water, considering most stores are running out.

I would also advise against going to any restaurants that might still be open, as they’ve been advised to close, and they pose a health risk due to not being able to wash their dishes or their hands unless they’re using the contaminated water.

Remember to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of juice and bottled water, and stay safe.
