in which Totoro boops Mana Ashida on the head.
Japanese child actress Mana was embarrassed that she couldn’t pronounce Guillermo Del Toro’s name so he gave her special permission to call him “Totoro-san” instead.
this video is entitled “tumblr feminists” and i prepared myself to get angry before watching it but damn if it isn’t spot on
"What they are really saying is that they hate women. They hate women with opinions who are honest and angry."
was trying to think of the negative meaning of Tumblr feminist that i think of and felt that she missed it. Though I doubt my version of Tumblr Feminists is the same as the Fedora Armies which piss me off as well. Then came to the conclusion/realisation that the types of Tumble Feminists which annoy the hell out of me and bring the title down a notch are the same types of people that piss me off in any area of life.
People that are generally bad at arguing a point, turn disagreements into childish name calling, hate speech, and make it nearly impossible to have a civil discussion about an issue, being more focuses on shaming and pushing the other person away to prove themselves correct instead of solving the problem and working through differences. And usually those people are going to be a significant portion of any issue/cause. Not everyone is going to be a debate champion with books on logic and rhetoric. And sometimes those voices out number the fair minded well reasoned speakers and start giving their valiant effort a bad name.
when i was thinking about this, Cops came to mind. I generally dont like Cops. I like the effort they make to serve and protect people. But people are also usually bad at dealing with new found power and abuse it. Reports and Videos come out about people being spied on, harassed, abused, wrongly profiled, beaten, shot, killed, unequal justice and enforcement of the law…. and sooner or later Mr.WhiteKnight Police Officer isnt going to be greeted with a wave and a smile. Instead they are looked down on as bullies, tarnishing the valiant effort they have sworn to uphold.
In my mind at least, thats is what has happened to Tumblr Feminists. Can’t count the number of times I’ve agreed with the point/argument, but was extremely disappointed in the person giving it, for how they delivered it.
