The Week In Aggressions, Because Some of Them Are Pretty Macro

October 27, 2014

When someone posts a rape threat to your blog because they don’t like the facts you posted or the opinion you posted or the fact that they can’t use their internet penis to scare you off the internet.

That happened to me in the past seven days. And on average about once a week.

When someone on Facebook specifically tags you in a post and requests that you prove that “The Talk” that all people of Color, especially males get from those parents who are responsible. In this specific case it was to seek proof that a mother who told her son “don’t run from the cops or they’ll shoot you wasn’t “just being paranoid.

That happened to me in the past seven days.

When a male posts his opinion of Jian Ghomeshi’s firing which includes the sentence “if Gomeshi’s personal sexual life is the whole reason behind this, CBC deserves to lose this 50 million dollar lawsuit,” but responds to women posting the accusers side of the story with “I refuse to speculate.”

That happened to me today..

When in the course of that same conversation a commenter brings up BDSM and goes out of his way to mention blackmail and “misunderstandings.”

That happened today too.

When people think a Ray Rice jersey and a female doll made up to look beaten is a clever Halloween costume.

When a white couple dresses up in black face as Ray Rice and Janay Palmer.

That happened to the whole damn world this week.

Happened to all of us too.

No, I’m not going to go point by point and explain why demeaning the pain and fear that PoC labor under every day as “being paranoid” is racist and makes it clear that you have a serious compassion problem.

I am further not going to help someone who appears intelligent define the word IF or the word SPECULATION or explain how using one means you’re doing the other.

And if you can’t figure out why domestic violence and black face aren’t funny you are lost and need to back away from my blog right now.

I can’t with this shit anymore.

STOP BEING HORRIBLE PEOPLE. I don’t have time to explain this over and over again.

Why is this complicated?
