Bad, Community, and Feminism: CALL-OUT CULTURE AS RITUAL DISPOSABILITY Feminist/queer spaces are more willing to criticize people than abusive systems because they want to reserve the right to use those systems for their own purposes. At least attacking people can be politically viable, especially in a token system where vou benefit directly by their absence, or where your status as a good feminist is dependent on constantly rooting out evil When the bounty system calls for the ears of evil people, well, most people have a fucking ear. When I used to curate games, I was approached by people in that abusive community who pressured me not to cover a game by a trans woman. Their reasoning was blatant jealousy, disguised under the thin, nauseating film of pretext that covers nearly everything people say about trans people. When I rejected their reasoning and covered the game, the targeting reticule of disposability turned toward me. What can we learn from this? Besides "lofty processes in queer/feminist spaces are nearly always about some embarrassingly petty shit," it's about the ritual nature of disposability, which has nothing to do with "deserving" it. Disposability has to happen on a regular basis, like forest fires keeping nature in balance. So when people write all those apologist articles about call-out culture and other instruments of violence in feminism, I don't think they understand that the people who most deserve those things can usually shrug off the effects, and the normalization of that violence inevitably trickles down and affects the weak. It is predictable as water. Criminal justice applies punishment under the conceit of blind justice, but we see the results: Prisons are flooded with the most vulnerable, and the rich can buy their way out of any problem In activist communities, these processes follow a similar pragmatism Punishment is not something that happens to bad people. It happens to those who cannot stop it from happening. It is laundered pain, not a balancing of scales. beachdeath:https://thenewinquiry.com/hot-allostatic-load/
Bad, Community, and Feminism: CALL-OUT CULTURE AS RITUAL DISPOSABILITY
 Feminist/queer spaces are more willing to criticize people than
 abusive systems because they want to reserve the right to use those
 systems for their own purposes. At least attacking people can be
 politically viable, especially in a token system where vou benefit
 directly by their absence, or where your status as a good feminist is
 dependent on constantly rooting out evil
 When the bounty system calls for the ears of evil people, well, most
 people have a fucking ear.
 When I used to curate games, I was approached by people in that
 abusive community who pressured me not to cover a game by a
 trans woman. Their reasoning was blatant jealousy, disguised under
 the thin, nauseating film of pretext that covers nearly everything
 people say about trans people.

 When I rejected their reasoning and covered the game, the targeting
 reticule of disposability turned toward me. What can we learn from
 this? Besides "lofty processes in queer/feminist spaces are nearly
 always about some embarrassingly petty shit," it's about the ritual
 nature of disposability, which has nothing to do with "deserving" it.
 Disposability has to happen on a regular basis, like forest fires
 keeping nature in balance.
 So when people write all those apologist articles about call-out
 culture and other instruments of violence in feminism, I don't think
 they understand that the people who most deserve those things can
 usually shrug off the effects, and the normalization of that violence
 inevitably trickles down and affects the weak. It is predictable as
 water. Criminal justice applies punishment under the conceit of

 most vulnerable, and the rich can buy their way out of any problem

 Punishment is not something that happens to bad people. It
 happens to those who cannot stop it from happening. It is
 laundered pain, not a balancing of scales.

Christmas, Dad, and Dude: Uch re Me M a ainst the MR and won e jwst beuse it OPFENDS you what is the wond Comig ? you cawt fof dl jdlu ISTM SALE HERE Um いve MERRY qsy-complains-a-lot: dollsahoy: nirtonic: lordofdarkshadows: chocolatesprinklesroyale: cannibalcoalition: leebradford: Flashbacks from The War.  I’m reblogging this because I just saw someone use the word ‘globalist’ in the comments, so it looks like I’m pissing off the right people.  It isn’t a war on Christmas if you’re still allowed to celebrate it. Just remember that your religion isn’t the only one celebrating a holiday. I think the war is on saying merry Christmas as there are some people that want to do away with the word, including replacing Christmas vacation with holiday break, merry Christmas with Happy Holidays and so on. there’s even an ad that pops up, once in a while, on youtube that covers this. . There is no war dude. Christianity is not the only religion with a holiday at this time of the year. Christians are not the only people on the us. There is no harm in folks taking a step back from this christian hyperfocus, litterally 0 harm. My Dad, living in an intensely Christian area, would say Happy Holidays, and when people would protest, he’d gleefully say “What about New Year?” to point out that even Christians celebrate multiple holidays this time of year. We’ve been saying Happy Holidays for decades in France just to cover Christmas and the New Year, so as far as I’m concerned this is a complete non-issue.
