I’m literally hiding out in my bathroom so I don’t have to deal with this moodiness oh my GOD
White people get mad over things like the picture of one direction walking on abbey road, or wearing a band t shirt when you don’t listen to the music, calling it “disrespectful” but when it comes to cultural appropriation and stealing marginalized people’s most sacred traditions, they’re like “oh, we’re just appreciating your culture, stop getting so angry” while throwing paint at each other and prancing around in cheap, craft store, feather headdresses
Oh. So that post is getting momentum. Kaaaaaayyyyyy.
tumblrcon would be such a bad idea it would be like 75% scary superwholocks probably

what the fuck
The arrest of a Dutch teenager didn’t dissuade copycats. It created a noxious meme.
Almost 21 years old and I already hate the fuck out of teenagers.
I’ve hated them since I was a teenager.
Seriously? They arrested a girl for a very very very very very bad joke and people got angry. That’s normal. These kids are just trying to show how ridiculous the arrest was/piss off the people who did it/ show solidarity. Yes, the joke was racist and bad. No, it was not worth an arrest. And people realized that and got mad.
It’s not because the joke was racist, it’s because YOU DON’T JOKE ABOUT BOMBS ON AIRPLANES.
IT’S NOT FUNNY. IT’S NOT WITTY. IT’S NOT CUTE.
Airlines can’t take shit like that lightly, especially because, I don’t know, planes have been blown up or used in terrorist activities how many times now?
WAIT. REALLY? IF YOU ASK ME, SHE SHOULD BE CRUCIFIED.
You idiots need an example of exactly what NOT to joke about. It was totally worth the arrest. Threats like bombs on airplanes do not get taken lightly because they are very real. She wasted the time and resources of hundreds of people trying to determine if the threats were true. And what if a bomb did happen to go off? How fucking shitty would that be? I have no sympathy for her.
I not only have no sympathy for her, but no sympathy for anyone who gets in any sort of trouble for doing stupid shit like this.
If you think this stuff is normal or acceptable you can fuck yourself.
Youth are just too out of control.
Can we just acknowledge that if this were a non-white POC who made the same joke (which would still be discriminatory/display inter-racial prejudice) and were arrested, there would be no Internet vigilantism to show ‘solidarity’ and ‘support’ for them?
Can we acknowledge that her being a young, white European girl helps her be shown as an ‘innocent victim’ of her own naivete?
Let’s not play dumb right now that these copycats are equally disturbed and none of this is funny, cool, a show of the power of the Internet community, or anything other than racist.
