"all opinions are valid" only applies to subjective shit like ice cream flavours, when it come to whether or not certain types of people are allowed to live safe and comfortable lives, I’d say objectivity was pretty fucking important.

or that people have never asked you.
cis people who state that they are cis in their bio=epic
cis people who do not complain about cisphobia because they know it doesnt exist=fuck yes
cis people who call out transphobia when they see it instead of just calling themselves an ally and sitting on their ass doing nothing=good job
cis people who dont victimize themselves or say theyre being “bullied” after saying something bigoted=hell yeah
one time a boy tried to pull my hijab off
i punched him in the face
closed fist, short swing, right in the jaw
there is a point where you stop trying to educate people and start making the consequences of their racist bullshit real fuckin clear.
Fuck yeah you do
Anonymous asked:Commonsensemedia.org has a movie review section that I use to find out more about movies if I’m worried about being triggered. I guess it could stand to say that some of the reviews may be triggering depending on the person. For ex, you may find out why the movie is considered violent/bloody (in a very concise manner as far as I’ve seen) if you read on in the description. It is really nice if you are not a parent/guardian and has a discussion part along with the review.realsocialskills said:Thank you, that sounds like a really useful resource.
That’s good, especially considering the problems MovieTriggers has had. They’re trying to take care of it, though.
The other problem with Movie Triggers is that it’s mostly oriented towards identifying movies that *contain* triggers. That’s helpful if you want a heads up about a particular film, but not necessarily if you’re actively looking for something safe to watch. Commonsense Media is oriented towards finding suitable things to watch as well as avoiding unsuitable things, so it can be more helpful.
