I will write about the following, leave one in my ask box.
Dear person I hate,
Dear person I like,
Dear ex boyfriend,
Dear ex girlfriend,
Dear ex bestfriend,
Dear future me,
Dear past me,
Dear person I’m jealous of,
Dear person I had a crush on,
Dear significant other,
there are literally lesbians saying “kill all bisexuals” and referring to us as the most vile gendered slurs on their anonymous message boards and people are still going to act like monosexual queers aren’t an enormous part of the problem
Every time a community of minorities becomes fractured from within, the system grows more entrenched. Every time a minority group comes to hate another minority group, the system grows more secure.
But really, it’s ok. You don’t need allies. You don’t need anyone to like you. It’s OK to hate. Go right ahead emulating those who would impose their views on you. That’ll show ‘em.
*white guy shoots up jewish community center*
*kills 3 men*
*member of the kkk*
*yells ‘heil hitler’ before being apprehended by police*
"were still unclear on a motive for the suspect"
"he was a troubled teenager and an outsider"
OK, I need to make a point here, because otherwise people are going to go on spreading this nonsense.
White anti-semitic neo-nazi ex-KKK leader shoots up Jewish community center. When asked for a motive immediately after the event, the police HAVE TO SAY THEY ARE UNCLEAR.
"He was an anti-Semite!" is not a motive. He’s been an anti-Semite for DECADES and never shot up a Jewish community center. Ditto for "member of the KKK". It’s entirely possible that nobody on scene knew this about the guy before he was, you know, IDENTIFIED. Yes, all the heilng of Hitler was probably a good tip. However, it is NOT up to the Police to charge someone with a Hate Crime, or make the determination that the crime was motivated by hate. That’s up to the DA, when they file charges. Which, you know, they DID. The very next day.
So yes. They were, and last I heard still are, unclear on exactly what motivated this asshole to go kill people In That Place, At That Time. They do know now he was motivated by HATE. Something that a lot of people on Tumblr are intimately familiar with. And hate is not the whole story.
Ironically, the three people he killed were all Christian. Perhaps he killed them because he saw them as “race traitors” or some bigoted bullshit. I don’t know. I hope I never do. I hope I never hear of this guy again, because he’s quietly locked into a small cage until he dies, with no fanfare and no-one to remember his name.
