Autistic Self Advocacy Network, a non-profit organization run by Autistic people to advocate for autistic people, created a set of badges meant for autistic people to wear to public events like concerts and conventions Bronycon recently announced it will be handing them out to any con attendee that wants them. If this were any other convention there would only be praise, but since bronies are involved there apparently must be ulterior motives.
The justification for this statement is that other cons are not using the badges . They have only existed for 5 months. This isn’t the first time Jesu Otaku has done something like this back when McDonalds stopped calling their toys “girls toys” or “boy’s toys” and the My Little Pony toys were the “girl’s toys” at the time she said it must be about bronies throwing hissy fits. You’d think with dozens of anti-brony blogs we’d have heard about such a hissy fit. This is what triggered the policy change.
She’s far from the only one with this attitude. It’s hard to count how often I’ve seen someone criticize safe search wrap up or any brony charity as a publicity stunt. Can bronies ever do anything good?
On the one hand, yeah, the continued skepticism bothers me. On the other hand, the fact that such skepticism exists is somewhat indicative of how dumb the lunatic fringe has tended to be, no?
boys will complain forever about girls liking yaoi on that post about how shitty yuri by/for dudes is but they won’t take half a second to think about the power relations and structural misogyny that make those two situations not equivalent
I think you mean “the bullshit excuse we created in order to justify why it’s okay when WE do it”.
Your hypocrisy is repulsive.
"Power relations" and "structural misogyny" are just codes for "I want to shame somebody for something I do" or "I want to tell people what they do is wrong but I don’t want to be wrong when I do it".
This is the whole mentality behind the “power plus” argument for shit like racism or sexism. And it is bullshit and hypocritial.

Those people are fucking idiots.
Not only does that stance reveal INCREDIBLE insecurity, showing that they can’t enjoy something for children and need it to be ‘mature’ in the most shallow, edgy way possible to stroke their shitty ego.
It’s even worse because it stills shit from kids. Whenever someone grimdarks up some children’s property all I can think is ‘wow great, some assholes are so greedy they don’t want, y’know, new kids to have this and want to steal it’. Cape comics have already been hamstrung by this shit for years.
Sometimes I want to say ‘Silent Hill is a good franchise”.
Then I remember Silent Hill has been terrible for THREE TIMES LONGER THAN IT WAS GOOD.

absolutely. as men. as members of a class that benefit from my oppression. however i am able to love them as people. very rarely though.
I feel sorry for every man in her life and her pussywhipped beta of a boyfriend needs to grow a pair, and let this neurotic harpy die alone like she deserves
