Equality is fighting for EVERYONE’S rights, together. See, you’re all missing the point. You shouldn’t try to make people love your group of people or take notice/precaution to your individual sensitivities. The point is people shouldn’t care what your sexual orientation, gender, colour, religion, etc. is. They should just see a human being.
Fighting for gay rights because you are gay is not equality.
Fighting for women’s rights because you are a woman is not equality.
Fighting for trans rights because you’re trans is not equality.
Not would it be for anyone to selfishly say, “my people have been through this, therefore WE deserve this!”
That’s the mentality that got us here. And here’s the thing, we have ALL suffered, we have ALL been through rough times. Fighting alone for your own cause, or even with those with the same cause never gets anywhere (see any history text).
Fighting together, for HUMAN rights, in ALL areas is the only way to fix things
This one at a time bullshit doesn’t work.
But if everyone, whether you’re gay straight, bi, trans, black, white, Asian, Jewish, Muslim, Christian, pagan, atheist, whatever. We’re all people, and we’re all living through a rough and problematic time.
Gay people are no more oppressed than a Cuban child forced to work in a factory.
Trans people are no more oppressed than the Jewish.
You get the idea. We’ve all been oppressed (yes even the “straight white boy” saying this). But it’s not the oppression you should focus on, but the PROGRESSION.
WE CAN MOVE FOWARD
but It will only happen when we move forward together, at a steady pace. It might seem slow at first, trying to tackle multiple problems. But it’s better than everyone fighting for themselves. Those who preach about their oppression, and expect some sort of good karma in life for going through something bad, are not going to change anything. Those who hate all men, or all gays, because of an oppressive matter that happened to them, are never going to see true equality.
Like I said, you’re not the only hand in the crowd, raising your fist for “freedom” or “human rights” or “a better life” or “peace” or “fair wages”.
We’re all fighting for something.
Why not help someone else fight for their cause, rather than only focus on your own? That’s the kind of compassion and acceptance the world needs to move forward.
Apparently I’m a misogynist because I believe women and men (and any other person within the gender spectrum) should have equal rights.
Welcome to Tumblr. Where 13-20 year old girls resort to nazi-feminism to unleash their hormonal rage against all the boys in their school that didn’t ask them to dance or some shit and then start saying that these boys (who are in high school or college) and who have nothing to do with “how the world works” but yet they’re the problem because EQUALITY MEANS BUMPING UP ONLY THE SHIT YOU BELIEVE IN WHILST HAMMERING DOWN ON ANYTHING THAT MIGHT BE CONSIDERED TO BE LESS OPPRESSED THAN YOUR CAUSE.

This girl means the world to me. No, the entire cosmos to me. She’s everything I’ve always wanted. She’s not only the best girlfriend for being her amazing self, but also the best friend anyone could ask for. She constantly selflessly puts up with me and my constant negativity, and helps me every day without ever expecting anything in return. She gives me all the love I need and more, but yet I have failed to show my appreciation of that love through my lack of trust, and constant worrying, stressing, and being overly attached and obsessive towards her. I’ve been less than a perfect boyfriend to say the least. But it’s time I stop. Because the only other option is losing the one girl I love more than life itself. The one girl who’s loved me, despite all my problems. I won’t lost her. I will get better, not just for her, but for myself. For the both of us. For our love. For our future. I know she’s the one for me, I want to become the right one for her. I want to be the boyfriend, fiancé, and husband that this girl deserves. And it’s all going to start now. No more fucking around. It’s do or die. And I won’t lose this time I love you Mel, with all my heart. @melxrosex13
"However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you”
I will. Always.Played 477 times.
I will get better. For the both of us. I’ll keep fighting, for us. For our love. I’ll keep trying harder than ever before, to better myself every day. I will stay. I will fight. I will beat this.
