    Actual answer: Who cares?

    Unless it’s kids, don’t waste your time second-guessing what gets you wet.

    You’ve got an inalienable right to get turned on. This conversation lowers us both.

    What the fuck though. Your “right to get turned on” does not supersede the rights of WoC (and MoC) to not be dehumanized, sexualised and objectified. 

    -c

    lol a band full of white people has no right to talk about this.

    was thinking about giving you guys a listen, but i guess now.

    Very convincing argument. Please never listen to us. 

    patrick is fucking scum. why the hell do people still support this band? why do people dismiss this dude as “pretty weird and interesting but his band is good” fuck off. asian women are regularly raped and murdered because of the ideas promoted in super fetishized asian porn and such. the assaulters are known to give reasons like “oh this is just what asian women want/this is how they act” based on this weird fucked up porn culture. yet patrick’s right to be turned on is more important than that. fuck off.

    I want you as a listener. Mailing you a shirt. 

    This is fucking disgusting.  Do you think that as an asian woman, I am okay with my existence making you wet? We aren’t these docile sex objects made to get you off. Do you even know how many times I’ve been to shows where people think its okay to lift up my skirt or grab me?  Do you think that’s something I or other woc want? Do you even realize that by you reiterating these ideas that you are supporting the sexual assault of woc? There are real people telling you that this is offensive and actually dangerous and you’re making jokes. How awful is that.  Just because you don’t think its an issue, because you’ve never experienced it, doesn’t make it a overeaction to write off as casual and non-problematic.

    Your reading skills are really poor. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t listen. Mailing you a record, new fan. 

    Basically what you said was that as long as your fetish is not for kids, sexualizing an entire race is just fine.  You also totally belittle the issue by saying “Who cares”.  ”Who cares” about the sexual harassment of woc due to the common conception that its okay to fetishize skin colour and race.   So nah, you all just fail to understand the problem is in what you said. The right thing to do would be to step back analyze the issue and apologize for reinforcing the terrible idea.  You have a following and have the potential to reach out to people on these issues when asked about them in yet you chose to say something totally incorrect and feel like you were in the right cause you have some totally off based fans backing you up. Stop trying to make a joke of issues that actually affect peoples lives in a really hurtful way.

    Got your DM. Sending that record/shirt bundle ASAP. 

    I enjoy the use of “colour” over “color”. They just ignored that red squiggle and hit the post button anyway. Connecticut must still be a British colony.

    Lol are you for real gunna try and come at me with that? Like you so dense you cant fathom the possibility that my mother had learned english outside of america and that my dad was the first generation to be born here so grew up writing in the french canadian way of spelling becuse his parents taught him to and that because of all this, this is how I was taught too? Get the fuck out of here with that ethnocentrism.

    So wait, you didn’t attend school in America? How many papers did you turn in with that ‘u’ in there.

  13. Happiness starts with removing toxic people from your life. I don’t often post personal things on here, but I feel it necessary to remind myself and anyone this from time to time. Regardless, you should never let anyone make you feel like shit. Whether it’s about your appearance or what you enjoy doing, no one should have the ability to control how you feel. That should be something only you can control. 

    I’m guilty of it often, I let my past control my future. I lived as someone’s ex, or the former member of that band, or even as someone’s son, when I should just be living as myself.

    Well, here’s to hoping that I can start to take control my own life.

No, no and no. REBLOG this please, this shouldn’t be allowed and we need to spread the word to everybody about this injustice!
The actual news article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2726219/Yasmin-Thomas-victim-disgusted-walked-free.html

"But womenz are so oppressed! "

You realize that he probably instigated her? People dont just do these things. You just like to hear the one side of the story that you want to.

And if a woman instigated a man who then glasses her in the face? You’d be singing a different song then.

You’re just throwing in probably. This is exactly what I saw people do over Michael Brown being murdered. They just go “Oh, he must’ve attacked the cop.” or “Oh, the cop must’ve been trying to defend himself!” Even though there was seriously nothing suggesting that, and we later had mountains of evidence showing it was cold blooded murder.
No, I don’t know the reason she did that. Maybe he did attack her, maybe he didn’t. I’m not going to just assume anything though. Stop looking at this as a way to shoot people down, and look at it through facts.
Edit: Oh shit, didn’t see that first comment. Also, fuck you anti-feminist-rayquaza. This doesn’t eliminate the fact that women are more oppressed than men in every way.

This woman also had 17 previous convictions of assault.  That means this is the 18th time she has physically assaulted someone.  The majority of human beings on this planet, regardless of gender identity, will likely go through their entire lives without even accumulating ONE.
Funny how the people who claim to be against “victim-blaming” are the first ones to do it to anyone that doesn’t fit their narrow criteria of what it means to be a victim.  They’re also quick to hide behind a little of that “patriarchy” when it’s convenient for them to do so.  If it works in their favor, they’re all for those outdated gender roles that they claim to be trying so hard to disassemble.  If today’s excuse for “feminism” was truly about gender equality, then they would suck it up, and admit that there’s more to that term than just money and “privilege” (not even getting into the fact that women are already a lot more privileged in this country than they’d care to admit).  There’s also the matter of accepting the same level of punishment for committing the same crimes.  Women in general have gotten away with some pretty goddamn horrifying shit simply because of their gender.  People will fall all over themselves trying to excuse when a woman commits assault or cold-blooded murder, because we’re still stuck in this obsolete notion that women aren’t as capable of wrongdoing as men.  More women commit child abuse than men (and don’t give me any of that shit about “But women are usually the ones taking care of the kids!”, because THAT ISN’T AN EXCUSE, NOR JUSTIFICATION, FOR HARMING OR KILLING THEM).  Children are more likely to be killed by their mothers than their fathers, and when it comes to the murder of spouses, 41% of the killers are women.
Women are not perfect angels incapable of perpetrating evil, and the sooner that “feminists” finally admit this, the closer we’ll be to ACTUAL gender equality, and the closer we’ll be to seeing all human beings as equals, no matter HOW they identify.
