DONE

Posted by DeeVee , in BZPower, Musings, Life Aug 16 2013 · 368 views

Fed up with this NO MORE MR ANGRY EYES
Here are a few things people need to know if they are going to continue with their blogging, replying to blogs, and interactions with BZPower in general.
 
Because I am DONE WITH THIS.
  • You do not get to "disagree" with who someone is. Someone's identity or sexuality are not up for debate. They are what they are, and you do not have the right to tell them they are wrong. And if you have the urge to do so? Congratulations, you are what's wrong.
  • You do not get to insult and dehumanize someone. This should go without saying, but apparently it needs to be said.
  • Tolerance DOES NOT MEAN that those who are being INTOLERANT get to say "THIS ISN'T FAIR, I'M NOT BEING TOLERATED!!". It means that those who have been VICTIMIZED, INSULTED, DEHUMANIZED, MARGINALIZED, OPPRESSED, HARASSED, BEATEN, ABUSED, EXPLOITED, and been on the receiving end of SYSTEMATIC, INSTITUTIONAL, and PERSONAL INJUSTICE are able to EXPRESS THEMSELVES EQUALLY and FAIRLY. Because THAT IS EQUALITY.
  • You're a member of the majority who has been allowed to benefit and exploit others because your race/gender/orientation/religion/political preferences have been the majority view for most of modern society and feel like you're suddenly "UNDER ATTACK"? You're not losing your rights to free expression when people call you out on your impropriety, you're not being oppressed- you're being a ###### and society is finally more tolerant of others admitting it. Non-hetero-normative orientations and ideas don't oppress you. But the opposite? Yeah, heteronormative expression oppresses them. And that's BAD.
  • You do not get to belittle and insult the mental health of someone. Psychiatrists are trained SCIENTISTS. Therapists are trained professionals. Not a single person on this site to my knowledge is either (I'm frustratingly close to being the latter, but it'll be a bit still). Psychology is a science. It is not some "feel-good" thing that exists to baby someone. And depression? It is a devastating and life-altering illness that deserves to be treated the same as cancer and the flu. It is an illness and just because you can't see someone bleeding, doesn't mean it's not real.
  • All of this discussion WILL STOP PERMANENTLY. I am NOT saying that members who are transgendered or homosexual must stop discussing their problems with society or the hardships they face. I am saying that any discussion that centers around the legitimacy of their claims or ridiculous arguments against their "lifestyle" will no longer be even remotely tolerated. This is not a discussion that is going to happen again.
So here's the rub:
 
If I see anyone on this site express any of those thoughts in these blogs, from here on out, it is an automatic proto drop. I WILL send Hahli Husky or Makaru or Windrider after you. I am absolutely positively DONE with this UTTER DISRESPECTFUL NONSENSE. People deserve to feel SAFE BEING WHO THEY ARE. They do NOT DESERVE to deal with ignorance and hatred on what is supposed to be a safe place.

And once again, no, if you "disagree" with homosexuality or transgendered identities or other things, you are not being oppressed.

NOT BEING ALLOWED TO EXPRESS OPPRESIVE VIEWPOINTS IS NOT THE SAME THING AS BEING OPPRESSED. BEING DENIED THE ABILITY TO OPPRESS OTHERS IS NOT THE SAME THING AS BEING OPPRESSED. DO NOT BEGIN TO CONFLATE THE TWO. I WILL SUFFER NO MARTYR COMPLEXES.
 
This has been an official blog leader response.
