expression of their moral*

Posted at

Have you lived in a bubble? All trashtalk is made this way.

Ableist and sexist slurs are made that way. Just because you are using it, does not mean its good. And even then "trash talk" can be used and interpreted in different ways(you have sassy gay "you slut!" and you have a furious female slut-shaming "YOu slut!", for example). 

 

Just because people think its okay to call someone "retarded" it does not mean that they are suddenly absolved from the fact that they are being utterly ableist about a person they know nothing about.  

 

No, being called a player is NOT awesome. It might be in the society of so called "pretty boys", but in any other context, it is just as bad, because it implies the exact same.

Even if it implies EXACT SAME THING, in this current sexist society its a positive term.  

If i was a vegetarian who thought of eating meat as murder, expression my moral towards it, would be an attempt to meat-shame(just as valid) the person eating the meat into not. . .

And if you were a female and did not cover your face you would be stoned to death in some eastern countries.  

There's a very simple line one has to not cross:

Everyone should keep each other's morals to themselves and allow a free independent thought and speech. 

One's morals apply to HIMSELF, you or anyone does NOT own anyone else and thus can NOT force their own set of morals upon them.

as opposed to female version. And that's exactly the problem. Why should it be positive or negative? Why put those people into a stereotype, defining them with one word that has gender-role implications? THAT is sexism.

No it isn't. . .In certain VERY limited groups, it is, but generally it isn't. . .

You know I can't believe a dumb ass tweet from Julie Plec turned into a 5 page discussion of sexism. She called the girl drunk off her ass, if that's sexist then I'll just let my brain explode

The way she did it was sexist, though.She assembled a couple of sexist stereotypes assigned to drunk women into i t.

How else would she have phrased that? "drunk girl"(is because women can't get drunk? In my experience they can) is the one that's kicking you off i assume. If it is, is it a stereotype because a lot of people think a lot of girls are drunk? 

 

 

I wouldn't call that tweet sexist in a million years. . .

Thisss seriously. All she did was say "girl gets so drunk she can't remember her name" And what if it was a guy she was talking about? Or maybe you're just so bothered by the obvious sexism she's written on the show, that automatically anything she says is offensive....lol.

"a drunk girl recognised Paul Wesley despite being drunk" works good.

 

But she jsut had to run her mouth and assign stuff like "Can't spell her own name" and stuff that ARE a sexist stereotypes of a drunk woman.

You said something about sexist slurs on first page. . . Is it a sexist slur to say that a person can't stand? Or that she doesn't know her own name? 

 

 

You see, it's probably because, when people are very drunk, standing up can face quite a challenge. The thing with the name,(and probably them both) are just an exaggeration to promote understanding, because even though i have been very drunk a lot, i have never forgotten my own name, so i would assume that that one would be an exaggeration so paint a picture of how drunk this girl is.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
