Ra’s rape face

ARE THEY REDOING THE THING WHERE ONE TIME BLACK CANARY DATED RA’S CUZ SHE THOUGHT HE WAS JUST SOME RICH HOT OLDER DUDE AND HE ASKED HER TO MARRY HIM AND CONFESSED WHO HE WAS AND SHE WAS LIKE FUUUUCK BUT THEN HE DROPPED HER ASS INTO A LAZARUS PIT AND SHE GOT HER CANARY CRY BACK?

BECAUSE I WOULD READ THAT THING IT WAS FUCKING NUTS

One thing that’s driving me a little crazy in the New 52 is that it’s developing a habit of taking women’s control over their powers away. At the moment, it’s only two - Canary and Power Girl - but that’s still the start of a pattern.

The current arc in Birds, with Starling’s sudden betrayal and Kurt Lance’s return, is by far the worse of the two. A wonderful bisexual female hero who I believe is original to the New 52, Starling, betrays her teammates for little explained reason and vanishes from the book for months, and Dinah’s lost husband turns out to be alive, taking her control of her powers away and drawing her, as well, toward betrayal of her friends.

Birds writers… you had a GREAT CAST at the start. Starling was wonderful, you actually had a handle on writing Canary and Ivy, and Katana was straight-up awesome. I get that casts on team books change… but two betrayals in a short time (one by a character whose betrayal wasn’t foreshadowed, and whose chemistry with Dinah was one of the best things in those early issues) is a terrible way to change cast members.

And Birds really should be an all-female team, so the bird dude needs to come out of the book - especially since he felt introduce just to wreck possible Canary/Starling and Canary/Batgirl ships.

Ugh, the weirdest part of the last 5 or so years for me, has been slowly losing every bit of my respect for all of the people I used to look up to.

Finding out just how pervasive trans hate is in comedy was a big one. I lost Stewart, Oswalt, and tons of others just from that.

And, I bought…

Sometimes, when you look at the world through opened eyes, you’ll see things that hurt. You’ll see people in ways that lead to understanding that they are doing things to hurt you.

Most (not all, but most) of the people you listed in your post are well-meaning individuals who, when their deeds are tallied in the end (I gathered from your post that you’re an atheist; I’m not, my worldview is defined by the fact that I’m not, and I can’t think of another way to put this; please take it as metaphorical), will come up as having done more good than bad… but that doesn’t help the people who they wronged much, does it?

And they’re powerful, in the small ways that privilege makes people powerful and in the big ways that fame and wealth and cultural influence make people powerful. They don’t have to listen when they’re told they’re wrong about things - so they take the very human route of NOT listening.

Many of them do have valuable things to say, but they’re also fatally flawed, and one must, if one reads or listens to them and takes their words as having merit, take into account their flaws and watch for when those flaws are influencing their work. It’s harder, more demanding, and, most notably, profoundly UNFAIR that we have to be the ones skewered on our heroes’ flailing blades… but such is the fate of the minority, the unprivileged, and the enlightened.

I still haven’t quite figured out how to live with that - how to avoid denying myself the undeniable richness that people like Jon Stewart, David Wong, and Jerry Lawler (I’m a wrestling fan! Don’t judge!) have added to my life while simultaneously not supporting the hurt they often inadvertantly cause others - and while not being hurt myself. Maybe there is no good answer.

I hate that thought.

Huh. I’ve met/talked to a few other trans women who are wrestling fans. It seems surprisingly common. (I watched it some when I was a kid, in the late 90’s/early 2000’s. But, not since then.)

Umm, I guess I’ve been pretty much over my disillusionment with those people/communities for a while. That post was meant to be less about their flaws, and more about how shitty I feel for at one point in my life nodding along with what they were saying.

For instance, I had really bought into the idea Wong espouses that men were more interested in sex than women. And that ~our~ sex drives were these great burdens on ~us~ that women could never understand.

I sorta suspect that my views were colored by some form of dysphoria and that a testosterone-based sex drive was emotionally painful for me or something? I dunno for sure, but I was really looking forward to losing my sex drive when I started HRT. And it did go down a lot, but only for about a year. Then it just grew into this so much harder to manage thing that was insatiable. ~Taking care of things myself~ became so much less effective, and I craaaaaved a partner whereas I never really wanted one before. (I was literally 26 the first time I actually wanted to—instead of feeling obligated to—have sex with another person.) 

But regardless of that, I no longer see it as any sort of burden. I’m mostly at peace with it. Which I pretty much credit to finally having the right hormones in me. (also, I secretly suspect that David Wong is a horribly closeted trans woman)

The point of that tangent, I guess, was that reality hit me really hard in the lady-junk for having those wrong and crappy views. And so many other similarly crappy views on other things. (I should note that I wasn’t exactly an MRA dude-bro that would excuse sexual assault or feel entitled to sex with people or anything, I just occasionally had some really shitty views.)

I’m just glad that I’ve been given the opportunity to grow a lot. And that things in my life—like my transition—have helped to foster that growth.

As far as problems with people I currently look up to letting me down, I’m not really 100% sure what to do, either. I’ve just really toned down the hero-worship, and have pretty much braced myself for the worst with them. I’ve also been trying to be more forgiving, but only when they make an effort to try to learn from their mistakes, and don’t act like total assholes about it for days and weeks. 

Yeah… Wong in particular has some really… troubling… views. I’ve avoided the Cracked forums like the plague, which appear to be the where the worst of his stuff shows up, but I’ve seen it more than hinted at in the articles.

He runs a website that is basically built on merging education and comedy, and does a really good job at that on the whole, and the idea is important and worthwhile, but when he deals with, in particular, gender and sex-related issues, he tends to do very badly - and his forum behavior indicates that he doesn’t intend to be educated on why he’s doing it badly or how to stop. Not to mention that he’s a white guy who uses a non-white pseudonym, which is its own sort of problematic.

Emily Yoffe - Prudence, from Slate.com’s advice columns - also tends to let her privilege run her over on occasion, but when I’ve contacted her about it, she’s always been respectful and polite, and has at least visibly taken what I said in mind even if her opinion didn’t change.

Trans Community =/= The Gay Community...unless...

chrysalisamidst:

First of all, I want to say that I’m sorry if I’ve been super obnoxious with my posts today. I don’t really honestly think that people understand how much it hurts me, as a trans woman that is supportive of gay rights, to see so many gay men come out…

The LGB community, and in particular the segment of white cis gay men who hold the most privilege and power in it and who are most likely to have a voice in media, shows many of the same problems that any other privileged group does.

It’s never a big deal unless it’s them getting hurt, it’s the responsibility of those they offend to stop being offended rather than the responsibility of those offending to stop offending, and their having friends in the communities they’re offending somehow makes everything better.

And most glaringly, they never, never, NEVER seem to see the painful, brutal IRONY of it.

I think the LGBT community is a thing - but I think the community of the oppressed should be a thing, because to my mind all of it - sex, race, disability, religion, orientation, gender identity, poverty, things I’ve forgotten to list here because of my own privilege and the fact that I’m sleepy - is the same fight against the same forces. We all should be fighting, together, against the blinding power of our own personal privilege and the basic institutions that make it easier to get through life the more traits from the Privilege List (white, male, straight, cisgender, Christian/standard nonreligious, … I don’t know the proper non-othering term for non-disabled people but put it here in your mind and please educate me my privilege is showing because I’ve never needed that word before and that BOTHERS me, born to at least some wealth) on the backs of those who have less traits from that list. Because nearly everyone - MYSELF INCLUDED - is varying degrees of part of the problem, and the majority of the population is varying degrees of hurt by the problem, and we’ll ALL be richer if we can WIN that fight.

ADS THAT SUDDENLY TAKE UP THE WHOLE PAGE AND PLAY MUSIC

What about ads that play music, but you can’t find them anywhere on the page?

I default my adblock to off. After all, most of what I do online is paid for by ads, and if they want to load a gif or two and a couple of hyperlinks, who am I to say no? I’m using their content.

But the moment an ad makes noise? That site’s adblocked for a week. It does so again? The block’s permanent.

I personally think the Internet as a whole needs to adopt this policy. Encourage good ads!
