Are there any coroners in media that AREN’T portrayed as eccentric shut in creeps? Wait, I know that there have been more “normal” ones but it seems like they’re either like that or they’re the weird kind. I want a super girly girl coroner who drives a pink beetle with earrings shaped like internal organs and kicks ass at her job and likes to have dates at the Death Museum and who says the only downside to her dream job is that she can’t have super fancy colorful bedazzled nails or wear a nice brooch to work since it’ll get splattered with blood and other gross fluids.
I’d been waiting for this one. Not just because I really wanted to hear it, but also because… on Tumblr usually what I see is critiques of white people for their Islamophobia, defense of the hijab, and people mocking FEMEN.
I find it really worthwhile to have a look at the other side — the people who do feel Islam is oppressive, not because of any nefarious imperialist designs or latent racism, but because they’ve left it.
I’m glad I took the time to listen to this, it was really informative to hear about these things from actual ex-Muslims who could offer valuable insight. The point about the word “Islamophobia” being sort of wrong in meaning/usage and that versus Muslimophobia was really important too, I think a lot of people around here need to hear that. I hadn’t even made that distinction and the guy explains it really well. Because there are tons of posts around here criticizing a lot of ideologies and things in Christianity but people here are rarely ever called hatefully ignorantly prejudiced towards Christians as a people for pointing out that something in the Bible is hypocritical/sexist/ableist/just plain unfair and illogical. The second anyone here, even if they are Muslim, intelligently criticizes something in Islam, the SJWs jump in and shout ISLAMOPHOBE! YOU HATE MUSLIMS! And it’s just like… wat. x_x
I think it’s almost important to remember that a lot of people tend to judge on the extremes and then only use those extremes to paint their views on other religions. We know that there are extreme ones who will murder in the name of God whether because someone is gay, left the religion, or bought food that goes against the religion, etc. But we also know that there are good Muslims and good Christians. The thing I see with the really intense bad SJWs around here who like to publicly accuse others of being straight up islamophobes, transphobes, racists, sexists, is that they don’t seem to have the ability to understand that… nothing in the world is just one way or black and white. Everything is very nuanced. Every person is very nuanced.
All they seem to see are those extremes. They’re like 17 (and sadly older) and they think they’ve got the world figured out just because they’ve been made aware of social issues that harm people (and for some reason they think bullying is okay and it’s like—I’m friends with people who are friends with these bullies and I’m just kinda baffled by it, sigh, but as always I try not to judge and I try to keep an open mind because unless it gets REALLY bad, it’s not my style to go “hey so you’re friends with someone that is really nasty to my friends…”) but the thing is, they’re capslock shouting around here about problematic things and none of the stuff they’re raging about is actually 100% applicable to the things they’re trying to apply it to IN REAL LIFE and frankly, it’s insulting to the movement, whether it’s equality or awareness or whatever. That’s it. It’s just insulting.
They literally do not understand how the world actually works. They think that they’re higher functioning and evolved for understanding problematic things and then instead of actually having intelligent and critical conversations or debates to spread awareness about why the issue is an issue, EVEN IF THEY ARE ANGRY (IT’S OKAY TO BE ANGRY) to make even a small difference or point something out, they go on a total rampage, for example, accusing an artist who drew Megatron spanking Starscream of “downplaying abuse” and “infantalizing” him and “making abuse cute and funny.”
I’m blown away. But… hopefully these kids will grow up about it and learn that the way they’re going about social justice is incredibly hypocritical and toxic and harmful and just wrong.
(Disclaimer: Should kinda go without saying that I’m totally fine with my religious friends and when I criticize an ideology, I’m not saying U R BAD PERSON FOR UR RELIGION BE ASHAMED. I love you all and even though I’m not really religious myself, I think it’s a really cool thing that can inspire and guide people.)
There’s a time and place for everything.
But now is not the time.
