Pretty much everything we get told about the famine when growing up here in Britain paints it as an unavoidable tragedy, with any mistakes being on the part of the Irish, and with Britain as the charitable saviour.
This is not true. The Great Famine, as with many other “natural” disasters, was a political issue, with the ruling classes at fault. Britain may not have had any control over the blight, but it certainly had a hand in creating the conditions that made it such a disaster.(via runofthemillsocialist)
"but women have sex organs on their chests! I don’t walk around with my pants off!"
I think what you mean to say is “women have secondary sex characteristics on their chests”, not sex organs
in which case let me remind you that your facial hair and enlarged adam’s apple are also secondary sex characteristics
if secondary sex characteristics bother you and you feel they should be covered up in public, please feel free to shove your entire head in a bag at any time

"Absolute power corrupts absolutely"
-the Polish one
First of all, SJWs don’t dream of a world without straight white males, they look for a world where straight white males, amongst every other social grouping, recognises and understands the concept of privilege and uses that to better the lives of those who are oppressed. Nobody gives a fuck if you fall into those three categories if you actively work to disengage the power of those categories. Which links exactly into ‘absolute power corrupts absolutely’.
The point of SJ is to create a balance that is deliberately knocked off by power dynamics. If a black woman was in power who was actively discriminating against the LGBT community and was refusing rights to disabled people, it would be just as deplorable. The reason the straight white male tag is thrown around is because they happen to be the biggest beneficiaries of the power imbalance which exists in our society and also tend to be the ones shooing away the idea of that power imbalance. They’re an example, not the be all and end all of the fight for social justice.
C’mon now, this is fierce infantile analysis if ever I saw it.
