Y’know what? I’m still not keeping quiet. I don’t have enough time in my life to be quiet. chescaleigh letting people have it on Twitter reminded me that I can’t keep quiet about my own people.

Yes! I’m slow hopping on CC videos, but https://captiontube.appspot.com is a great resource to get started if people don’t know how. I’ve decided to just invest and pay to get all my videos captioned through https://www.zencaptions.com

I’ve been meaning to work on this for a while. I don’t know why I haven’t! Laziness, of course.  I know I shouldn’t be so lazy about it. My brother is autistic and uses CC because he says people talk to fast in movies, and I’m pretty sure he uses it on YT sometimes.

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

Wow

The frightening thing is that, like most of their other campaigns against women, they see themselves as just warriors fighting for what’s right. This is primarily because they firmly believe that any woman who speaks up on women’s issues is completely disingenuous and only doing it for the purposes of self-promotion, and that any man who does is looking to get laid, because they actually cannot possibly imagine a scenario in which someone would genuinely give a shit about women.
 
Members of this board, as well as “Men’s Rights Activists” in general, tend to go apoplectic at even the most mild implications that women might be human beings. For them, this is simply “not allowed” and must be punished swiftly and severely, as they appear to believe that feminism is the one obstacle in the way of all these pathetic neckbeards getting their pick of supermodel girlfriends who obey their every whim. The goal is to make it as uncomfortable to speak out about misogyny and women’s issues as possible, which is why they go to the wall in terms of harassing women like Emma Watson. At the end of the day, this is the crux of it. It would be sad if it weren’t so vile.
