zoe quinn cheated on her boyfriend, which she defines as rape, has sexually harassed some guy, has outed an underaged trans girl and has allegedly made transphobic remarks at a party, where she knew a trans woman could hear her, and people still support her

I hadn’t heard about the transphobic statements and actions. I’ll have to do some research

I know nothing about the top situation, only that her boyfriend sicked 4chan on her which resulted in Gamer’s Gate earlier this month, but yeah the stuff on the last bit is why The Young Capitalists refuse to work with her and why they were like “yo this is unnacceptable behavior towards her, but she’s kind of an asshole”

It’s new, it’s blue - it’s Flarping.com!

Are you a roleplayer? Do you like roleplaying with people? If you’re interested in any kind of online Homestuck-based RPing, this is the place for you.

Overdramatic sales pitch aside:

What is Flarping? I’m glad you asked, me!

It’s a dedicated roleplay network, with a layout comparable to some kind of conglomerate Facebook, Blogspot, and forum site.

What do we have to offer? We have statuses, moods, tags, groups, forums, journals, achievements, a blocking feature that actually works, and a shitload of room for people to interact and talk to one another as the character they choose to be.

Afraid of overlords? Our staff is hella fuckin’ friendly.

Hell, need a place to get back in the groove of roleplaying? Come and ask for advice from fellow roleplayers. Many are willing to help!

Like what you see? Check out under the cut for some more sweet details.

people are actually replying to my question on the hitler post and their responses are even more repulsive omfg.

Okay, so I’m one of the few (that I can find) people that responded to your part of that post in particular. Let’s start a discussion. What about my response was repulsive? What would you propose as an alternate solution?

Fine.

1. Literally everything.

Okay, see, that’s not how a discussion works. You don’t get to say “literally everything” I said was offensive and then not cite how or why it was. 

2. Stop being concerned that Nazis are being used as representations of evil

I think you’re confused here. I’m not concerned that Nazis themselves are being used as representations of evil. I’m fine with that. Nazis were one of the most evil, mass-spread groups of recent memory, and their influence still plagues us today. No argument there. 

What I’m concerned about is when people start moralizing dehumanization because “they did it first” or “they did really awful things”. Both of those facts may be true, but that does not take away from the fact that dehumanization is inherently evil, and has directly led to the same kind of behavior that made genocides “morally acceptable” in the first place.

and focus on eliminating past and present antisemitism that dehumanizes and incites others to harm Jewish people.

I’m not an activist. I make no claims to be. I’m some queer with a blog that occasionally posts things on the internet. I don’t spend all my time devoted to defending Nazis on the internet or some shit, not that I’m saying you ever claimed I did, because I just don’t have time for that. 

I address inequality, racism, homophobia and other anti-queer attitudes as I see them and as I feel qualified to address them. I addressed what I saw as a harmful and potentially dangerous attitude on a public forum, I cited my reasons why I thought it was potentially dangerous, and why I believe that people should fight against dehumanization in all forms. 

And honestly, if you think that dehumanizing any group is okay, you honestly make me nervous.

"Mother Gothel’s design makes me uncomfortable. Her dark, thick, curly hair, her sharp nose, and the way her features are generally perceived as more "ethnic" in comparison to all the other human characters in Tangled—it all reminds me of an archetype for Jewish women"

Interesting fact: The stereotypical witch found in fairy tales was usually portrayed as the stereotypical Jew in order to spread anti Semitic propaganda.
This is also where we get the “greedy Jew” stereotype, as goblins, hobgoblins, gnomes and dwarves were also portrayed as the harmful Jewish archetype.
In the middle ages, it was a sin for a Christian to hoard or handle large amounts of money, which left the profitable banking industry open to Jews. It’s ridiculous that Christians created the stereotype to avoid a sin, and this stereotype is still portrayed and spread today

I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THIS FOR MONTHS especially since if mother gothel looks like a nazi propaganda-esque jewish woman, and she steals the most aryan-looking baby in the kingdom to use its essence in a ceremony…like does that smell like blood libel or am i paranoid

oh shit

There’s an issue here with this post, and that’s that it ignores the fact that more than just Jewish people stereotypically have these traits. Greek, Italian, and Romani people also tend to have a lot of these physical features. But that aside…My friend saw this post and responded with something I thought was interesting. He’s Jewish, and he said “there shouldn’t be a thing that prevents villains from being coded Jewish. That’s stupid.”Mother Gothel isn’t an offensive stereotype or caricature. She is a powerful character with her own agency, goals, and ideals, who happens to be extremely manipulative, emotionally abusive, and kind of a dick. The byline is not “She’s evil cause she may or may not be jewish”, the thing is that “she’s evil because she’s manipulative, emotionally abusive, and a dick”TL;drMore than just Semitic Jews have those physical traits, and even if coded Jewish, if the reasons for her being the villain aren’t her being Jewish, than there’s no reason she can’t be.
