I want to thank you for all that you post. I have learned a lot about other viewpoints from reading your posts. I'm a cishet white man, and as I've gotten older I've decided to unlearn all the toxic attitudes society has taught me, and you've been a great resource for that. You put yourself out there, and that makes you a target for angry people, which sucks, but I think you're amazing. You are helping people.

Thank you. :)  That I’m helping makes it all worth it.

tw sexual assault : ami how do you deal with such horrible people (the people victim blaming you for your rape). I really admire you for how awsome you are and its horrible that you had to hear such things from those douchebags. I want to send you a digital hug because you don't desearve such treatment

I deal with it generally by not being around them anymore if I can (sometimes I can’t :\ ) and talking to friends who will tell me they’re wrong.  But it’s not fun, because I have a lot of doubts myself and tend to blame myself so it ends up poking at those doubts and making me worry it was my fault, even if I know it wasn’t, and if it happened to somebody else I would 100% with total certainty say it wasn’t. :\  thank you for the digital hugs and stuff :)

Girl: *Wears a t-shirt that says “Rape Me” on it*
Girl: *Gets raped*
Feminists: She still wasn’t asking for it!

You know, if a guy was wearing a shirt that said “punch me” and you walked up and clocked him in the face, you can still be charged with assault right?

If a guy was wearing a shirt that said “murder me!” and you shot him point blank in the head, you’d still go to prison. 

Amazingly, clothing has absolutely nothing to do with being the victim of a violent assault.

What the fuck is wrong with you?

I was wearing a sweater that said “Don’t Touch” on it the night I was raped (it was a play on Von Dutch) and some people said that I was asking for it because the sweater was clearly teasing/taunting the guy to touch me.

    Ah, anniversary jokes are so funny. Because chicks always hate it when you don't remember anniversaries! A plus gold very original

  • Male Writer:

    Mother in laws amirite?

  • Male Writer:

    My male character who is an author insert of myself pines after a woman I used to pine after in high school. Then they have sex. This is good literature.

  • Male Writer:

    Ugh female books are so romance filled

  • Male Writer:

    And girl fanfics, so mary suey

  • Male Writer:

    Now listen about this original middle aged man who is an expert in everything, suffers from ennui, looks like me, acts like me, and gets all the girls i want.

  • Male Writer:

    She was sexy in an alluring, boring way, filled with purple prose and riddled with objectification

  • Male Writer:

    If i make a female character parrot my misogynistic views, they cease to be misogynistic! Are you saying you don't respect my fake female characters opinions, feminists?

  • Male Writer:

    a good action girl is one who looks hot at all times

  • Male Writer:

    If the female main character got in an asskicking line, my work is Feminist with a capital F and no one can criticize me

  • Specifically White Male Writer:

    Heroic tropes are so overdone. I'm going to create a boring white guy with stubble to be a completely original antihero no one has ever seen before TM.

  • Same Guy:

    It's original because he is a jerk who gets away with bad behavior, just like I wish i could.

  • Another Specifically White Male Writer:

    It's in my universe to only have white men do things in my book. I mean, don't you care about historical accuracy

  • Same Guy:

    I mean, it's a generic fantasy verse with no real life time period equivalent and i haven't done any research, but i'm SURE that it's historically accurate. To that dark mideval dragon fighting europe period

  • Same Guy:

    Where in Europe? Who cares!

  • Male Writer:

    There is no better way to introduce a female character to a male character than by him saving her.

  • Male Writer:

    Characters hating each other is good sexual tension!

  • Male Writer:

    One female character and five male characters is a good team balance

  • Male Writer:

    If my female character chooses to act in a sexist tropey way, it's not sexist. In fact, because she CHOSE to do it, it is Feminist.

  • Male Writer:

    I am original

I love how after Jabba had his organization taken from him briefly by a force user who lightsabered everybody, he was like “hmmm, better do something about that” and all he came up with is a trapdoor to a monster that force users have killed before.  And then after Luke got out of that, he’s like, oh well, let’s just kill him in a long and drawn out wa- oh crap, the lightsaber, riiiight this is how I lost my organization the first time.

I love how Darth Maul is all like ‘You do not have the vision to understand my deep and complicated Sith plan to take over the criminal underworld.” to Pre Vizsla, but his plan is to march up to the heads of the underworld organizations kill everybody with a lightsaber and force them to work for him or they get lightsabered.  The subtleties of the Sith, indeed. >_>
