How to keep a relationship.

Communicate: Talk about things, the good and bad. Build trusts. Be honest. Be faithful. Be there for one another. Make time for one another. Leave the past to the past, which include ex’s. Know that having arguments are normal. Know that you won’t always be happy. Don’t expect change. Appreciate the flaws. Appreciate each other. Become best friends. Lastly, love each other unconditionally.

I am so incredibly sick of that ‘hate breeds more hate, stop being angry’ talk that seems to hang over tumblr like a dark cloud, often framing tumblr as a hostile space.

Hate does not breed more hate. That is a simplified pithy saccharine sentiment that totally erases absolutely everybody’s situation and is a veiled form of ‘shut up, you scare me.’ 

Hate does not breed more hate. Dominant forces in society (and people who intersect with them) are scared and intimidated when subdued demographics rightly resent the way they have been treated, or speak out their frustrations. As a result, they tell people who have rightful reasons to be angry that that anger is hatred and just as bad as what’s hurt them. This is, of course, total horse shit.

This is the same exact horrible talk that tells harassed kids not to confront bullies, or even not to speak out about being harassed to authority figures for fear of ‘snitching’ on their harasser. This is the exact shitty talk that gets the kid who is beaten in the hallway suspended with just as long a term as the kid who beat them.

Saying you’re mad at something that treats you poorly doesn’t make that something treat you worse. That would be what ‘hate breeding hate’ would imply. No. This has literally never happened. Hate doesn’t breed hate. Hate breeds anger, and expressed anger makes privileged people scared.

And of course, there are going to be foolish people. That’s not up for debate. But before we point to the few foolish people who may be inexperienced, unbalanced, or out-of-touch, we should point to the legion of people who prompted a few sad, offensive reactions in the first place, the people who enjoy their awful behavior normalized in our society.

Being quiet about hatred and your feelings just lets others continue beating on you, because their hate isn’t going to stop. Hate doesn’t breed hate. Apathy and ignorance lets hatred continue, and not every expression of frustration or anger is hatred.

Just because someone else’s speech makes you feel kinda sad or scared, doesn’t mean it comes with a self-perpetuating structure of power.

Only the status-quo enforcing ‘hate breeds hate’ crap comes with something as powerful as that.

"Evil is a good man who does nothing" should be the answer to "hate breeds hate".

This is such a good post I am so fond of you.

“Episode 4 saw the words Bad Wolf appear for the first time. I just made it up on a whim, cos I liked the idea of the TARDIS being graffiti’d. But then I spent the rest of the episode idly wondering who that kid was, why he wrote those odd words. And, having dismissed notions of Evil Super Villain Kid, a plan began to form, in mid-production. Knowing that Rose would become the Time Goddess at the end of the series, I wondered if a Time Goddess would imprint herself on the universe, creating things in her image, like the face of Jesus in a bagel. Better still, these signs would actually summon her into existence. That’s the sort of thing you think about in this job, late at night. And then I worked backwards, inserting Bad Wolf references into almost every script. Funnily enough, I never told anyone what I was doing, in case it didn’t work, but the design department picked up on it—they didn’t even ask what it meant, they just offered to stencil it on Captain Jack’s bomb, in German. The idea spread without anyone knowing what it meant. Which is very Bad Wolf in itself.”

“My body is not a sinful temptation that needs to be hidden. My body is not your personal, sexual object. My body does not overshadow my character. My body is not any more sexual than a man’s body. My body is not here to look “hot” for you.”

“One of the most disturbing scenes in Disney’s “Aladdin” is when Jasmine must pretend to seduce Jaffar in order to distract him. The clothing that the animators chose to put her in, complete with the shackles, are all a white, colonial wet dream. And she’s the only Disney princess who’s had to use her body in this way to distract someone. Then there’s this scene in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” where Esmeralda is shimmying her hips and breasts and basically ends with a pole-dance sequence: a far cry from the delicate waltzes and pirouettes that Belle and Aurora dance. The simultaneous fascination and revulsion that Whiteness has for WOC bodies are unmistakably evident in Disney’s posturing of Jasmine and Esmeralda.”

A perfect example of “desert flower” fetishization/exotification. Women of color are always shown as “others”, they’re seen as women who have to use their sexuality to save themselves (or worse, as people who are just inherently sexual by their mere existence).

We’re putting these sexualized images of women of color into cartoons meant for children, essentially brainwashing them to grow into adults who fetishize non-white women. Gross.
