Question reblogged from (hell, yeah) Scarleteen with 30,883 notes

Anonymous said: Towards the whole "pronouns hurt people's feelings" topic. Am I REALLY the only person on the planet that thinks people are becoming far to sensative? Nearly to the point that they shouldn't leave their little home bubbles in the case that a bird chirps next to them in a way that sounds like a mean word. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, we're becoming a little TOO coddling and people need to learn to deal with simplistic shit like words. And yes, I've been insulted and made fun of. I got over it. So can you.

thefrogman:

Supposedly invented by the Chinese, there is an ancient form of torture that is nothing more than cold, tiny drops falling upon a person’s forehead. 

On its own, a single drop is nothing. It falls upon the brow making a tiny splash. It doesn’t hurt. No real harm comes from it. 

In multitudes, the drops are still fairly harmless. Other than a damp forehead, there really is no cause for concern. 

The key to the torture is being restrained. You cannot move. You must feel each drop. You have lost all control over stopping these drops of water from splashing on your forehead. 

It still doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But person after person, time and time again—would completely unravel psychologically. They all had a breaking point where each drop turned into a horror. Building and building until all sense of sanity was completely lost. 

"It was just a joke, quite being so sensitive."

"They used the wrong pronoun, big deal."

"So your parents don’t understand, it could be worse."

Day after day. Drop after drop. It builds up. A single instance on its own is no big deal. A few drops, not a problem. But when you are restrained, when you cannot escape the drops, when it is unending—these drops can be agony. 

People aren’t sensitive because they can’t take a joke. Because they can’t take being misgendered one time. Because they lack a thick skin. 

People are sensitive because the drops are unending and they have no escape from them. 

You are only seeing the tiny, harmless, single drop hitting these so-called “sensitive” people. You are failing to see the thousands of drops endured before that. You are failing to see the restraints that make them inescapable.

vampmissedith:

When I was a freshman, my sister was in eighth grade. There was a boy in two of her periods who would ask her out every single day. (Third and seventh period, if I remember correctly.) All day during third and seventh she would repeatedly tell him no. She didn’t beat around the bush, she didn’t lie and say she was taken—she just said no.

One day, in third period, after being rejected several times, he said; “I have a gun in my locker. If you don’t say yes, I am going to shoot you in seventh.”

“I didn’t expect it would be all women and it was a small classroom and about 40 women were sort of sitting in a semicircle and the thought of spending two hours every week sitting there for the next four months was overwhelming.”

Male expects special accommodation because he doesn’t want to be around women, and then sues for discrimination. Amazing.

homeboy never heard of dropping??

So…he was stuck into the same situation that many women in STEM fields are stuck in but it’s different because it scared his little man feelings?

An actual shy person wouldn’t go to court over this. All that exposure and scrutiny? No thanks.

No, because see, he’s love shy which is a chronic inability to deal with women because they might not want to date you.

He went to a women’s studies class expecting men


HE WENT TO A WOMEN’S STUDIES CLASS EXPECTING MEN

I have -1920% sympathy for this douche.

lol attendance and participation were only 15% of the grade. it would have been possible to pass without ever attending if his work wasn’t shit.

He wasn’t stuck in the same situation as women in STEM fields (as said above) because this was only ONE single class.  Women in STEM fields experience being outnumbered and ostracized for their entire academic career.  NOT ONE PUNY LITTLE SEMESTER LONG CLASS.

I hope the judge laughs him out of the courtroom.

Already done — the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal dismissed this case on summary review, which means they officially found his petition to be so utterly devoid of merit that they didn’t even need to investigate.
