Seriously nothing pisses me off more than seeing this shit all over tumblr. Get over it and let people support whatever they want, regardless of who they are.
(I really hate drawing comics)
Okay, but all this person did was make a really insulting comic depicting oppressed people in an unflattering and superficial manner, while displaying the allies as pristine.
I mean, if the artist of the comic thinks they’re an “ally” they might want to try again.
Plus, the reason oppressed people don’t always trust their allies to speak for them is because they do just that. They speak for us (over us). They don’t give us a place in which to speak for ourselves. In addition to that, apparently they believe they’re entitled to our safe spaces.
Well, I don’t really want an “ally” who thinks they’re entitled to my space, or who wants credit for treating me like a human being. Or who’s so insecure about their position within activist movements, that they have to make an entire comic whining about Tumblr, the one place where their voices maybe aren’t idolized so much.
Wipe your tears on your fucking sleeves, and get over yourselves.
