Anonymous asked: Jennifer Lawrence has said some pretty shitty stuff regarding mental illness, homosexuality, etc. People don't hate her for being white and blonde. We hate her for being a shitty person.
I’m willing to bet that you yourself, anon, has said shitty stuff about mental illness and homosexuality as well. Every single person has, because we’ve all been raised by the same shitty society that says these shitty things are okay to say.
And then you learn that saying that you’re “OCD” instead of saying you’re very organized is actually insulting to mental illness. You learn that saying you have a “girl crush,” as a hetereosexual woman, is offensive to homosexual people. You learn that there are people who don’t consider themselves a man or a woman, and there’s a whole different language you have to learn in regards to sexuality, identity, etc.
And god forbid you don’t learn it fast, otherwise you’re going to be labeled ignorant or a bigot or, in this case, a shitty person.
I’m not trying to stand here and defend Jennifer Lawrence as some embodiment of perfection, I don’t fucking know her. Maybe she is a shitty person. But I’m so sick of seeing Tumblr fucking tear a person apart because they don’t have this infinite wisdom of social issues and what is and is not okay to say and wow, how dare you not understand what a fucking trigger is, let me verbally berate you for ten minutes instead of calmly explaining to you why this is offensive.
I forgot getting a job means you have to leave the house.
