My (male) friend was recently raped and nearly everyone he knew either said it was his fault or he wasn’t actually raped. I can’t convince him that not all people think like this. Please reblog if you know that men can be raped just like women.
Thank you for being alive today. Thank you for continuing to try. Thank you for breathing the same air I do, and I hope you have wonderful dreams when you sleep because you deserve them.
Let’s try to hit 25k by Christmas, because holy shit the holidays are so stressful for everyone ever.
someone fucking said it
He dislikes playing Minecraft anymore, which is understandable, since almost everything he says is thrown back in his face as racist, sexist, ableist, etc, so he probably figures it’s best to just not say anything.
Wouldn’t you start to hate your job too if someone insulted you about the way you did your job every single day? Multiply that by a hundred or so. What if there were an entire tumblr account dedicated to pointing out the flaws in your personality (and the personalities of your peers as well). Some of the RT/AH crew can handle it better than others, but none of them are perfect.
The critical people in this fandom need to realize, that even though they are entertainers, and even though most of them emphasize their antics and shenanigans more than they normally would in their day to day lives, THEY ARE STILL PEOPLE. YOUR WORDS CAN STILL HURT THEM. Why in the world are you attacking them? Because you are hurt by something they said in a video seen by millions of people, you decide to attack them personally? Why retaliate with hatred?
Have you ever tried to change who you are for someone? Because I can tell you from personal experience, it does not work. So please stop tearing them down for making jokes you don’t think are funny. Stop ripping them apart because they don’t share your views. They are just doing their job, and they are still entertaining hundreds of thousands of people, no matter how offended YOU are.
If you find yourself offended on more than one occasion, instead of wasting your energy being mad at the source of that negative feeling, kindly and calmly excuse yourself and find something you can enjoy, instead of spouting nonsense and preaching anger that poisons the entire fanbase,
This post is obviously directed toward specific people, as I mentioned above: “The critical people in this fandom”. There are many many many people who support RT/AH in everything they do, and you, my friend, are awesome. Keep doing what you are doing, maybe send a little love Ray’s way.
i have been personally hurt by rt. i have been personally triggered by rt. the point is, that we should not have to leave a fandom because of our illnesses/traumas, etc. he SHOULD change. he SHOULD stop being the way he is. right now he is. he is cruel. he is cruel and he does not care that people are hurt by his words. its not okay what he says and i dont give even half a fuck that thats who he is because its WRONG it is NOT okay to make jokes about rape, abuse, or race. it is NOT okay to trigger people and then MAKE FUN OF THEM FOR IT. HE IS THE ONE WHO SHOULD CHANGE NOT THE FANS WHO ARE BEING TRIGGERED AND HURT
You honestly believe someone you have most likely never met should change who they are to make you happy?
(inb4 “I met him at a con once” or something, you know what I’m saying.)
I strongly believe that if you have been hurt or triggered, then you SHOULD leave. No one is forcing you to, no one is telling you what to do, but really, how smart is it to stick around after you have been hurt?
They are a company that entertains almost 2 million subscribers on their Lets Play channel alone and have been viewed over 200 MILLION times. You truly and honestly think they should change their business model and their personal opinions to suit your needs?
I’m not trying to disrespect you or the fact that you’ve been triggered, but you need be real here. They are not going to change for you, and if you cannot handle it, it is probably in your best interest to find something that you can find joy in.
the fucking fact is im not the only one. people with mental illnesses, trauma, and people who would otherwise be offended by jokes that ARE NOT FUNNY AND MAKE FUN OF PEOPLE’S PAIN. it is not that i think he should change to make me happy, it is that he should change 1.) because right now he is a terrible fucking person who does terrible fucking things and hurts a lot of people, and 2.) because people should not feel fucking persecuted and targeted and made fun of because they have triggers. he is the one wrong here. he is the one who should leave if he can’t handle it. he put himself in the public eye here. he’s the one spouting horrible awful toxic shit and he is the one who keeps fucking egging people on like he doesn’t even care that these people have feelings. i told him how my ptsd comes from being raped as a kid and he never even responded. how is that a person that deserves to be in the public eye? how is that a person who should not change? how is that fucking okay? i dont care that its a popular company id ont fucking care because it being popular means more people like me will see it and more people like me will feel isolated and ignored because we fucking made the mistake of having illnesses. that is not okay. we should not have to leave. he should change, or leave. there is no buts or anything here. he is a toxic human being who is spreading pain. its not about being pc or wanting everybody to be like me. it’s about stopping somebody from hurting people who have already been hurt too much.
I never said you were the only one. In fact, you are not the only one in this 2 person conversation who has had trauma in their past. I understand triggers more than people think. Why don’t people think I have my own problems? Because I don’t shout them off the top of Mount Tumblr and expect people to feel sorry for me or change their ways to accommodate me. I don’t use my mental state or any of my diagnosed problems as excuses, and I don’t let them define who I am or how I expect other people to act.
1.) because right now he is a terrible fucking person who does terrible fucking things and hurts a lot of people
He’s not a “terrible fucking person” and he has not done “terrible fucking things”, he’s a normal person (with FEELINGS, Oh my lord!) who has made a few shitty jokes. You can’t please everyone, and not everyone is going to think you are funny, but there are more people who ARE entertained by him than there are people who take words too seriously.
2.) because people should not feel fucking persecuted and targeted and made fun of because they have triggers.
No one is being targeted. The closest thing I can possibly think of with them targeting ANYONE is when they mention a celebrity, who is not you.
They are not actively TRYING to hurt anyone. If you had a neighbor dude-bro who had a few friends over playing xbox, you would hear the same jokes, the same shit coming out of their mouths. Have you ever played a game online with your headset on? AH’s humor doesn’t even come close to some of the shit said online. They are normal human beings, just like you and me, who just have a different sense of humor.
i told him how my ptsd comes from being raped as a kid and he never even responded. how is that a person that deserves to be in the public eye? how is that a person who should not change? how is that fucking okay?
Honestly? How do you really expect ANYONE to respond to that? I don’t even have a response for that, am I a bad person because of it? No.
If something is such a horrible part of your life, why are you telling the entire world about it?
we should not have to leave. he should change, or leave.
In your aggressiveness, you’ve turned into a hypocrite.
With each of my responses, I’ve tried to be calm and civil about the entire thing, as I’ve said way too many times already, I really honestly do understand what its like to have triggers, to be emotional, to have traumas, but it would be stupid of me to tell someone else how to live their life because they offended me.
I know you are probably mad at me, and thats okay. I still hope you are able to find something that entertains you, regardless of whether or not you choose to keep watching something that continues to offend you. I hope you find something that makes you happy. And that will be my last word on this subject tonight.
Ever get hit with one of these?
Wait staff deal with this shit CONSTANTLY. Scumbags leave them folded up on the table instead of leaving tips. The best part is how hypocritical it is—you know who gets the most excited about an unexpected $20 entering their life? THE STRUGGLING POOR. Oh so greedy!
“And I say unto you, go from this place and glue a silver coin to a paving-stone, that you may watch the lepers scramble to try and pick it up, in My mercy.” Douchebagelus 13:13
I was personally handed one of these at a mall when I was poor, struggling and drowning in depression. Some dude came up and just handed me $20, like God had personally sent him to help me out. I still feel stupid for thanking him as much as I did before I looked, and for just walking away in stunned shame when I realized I’d been pranked. O my tiny naive self, how I wish I were as much of a dick as I am now!
I haven’t seen this shit since then, but let me pass on to you my perfect Samaritan Shaming Strategy, for use anytime you ever find yourself in the same situation:
- Fake total wonderment and make sure your hands shake visibly when you accept the tract. Do not open it! Put it safely in your pocket as reverently as you can manage.
- Hug the stranger and thank him frantically. You don’t know who he is, but you know who sent him because you’ve been praying for help and now here he is! Bursting into tears is a good idea.
- It is your 5 year old son or daughter’s birthday (or maybe it’s closer to Christmas, whatever) and you couldn’t even afford to buy him/her new shoes.
- Tell the missionary you will remember his kindness and generosity forever.
- Leave as quickly as you can, knowing that you’ve just ruined the nice man’s day.
wearing a hoodie with no shirt underneth is a unique sensation
