One of the many, many problems with tumblr social justice culture 

burntumbre:

is the way it tends to take good, well-intentioned ideas and turn them into a silencing tool that encourages the opinions of the least constructive people.

For instance, the very valid idea that oppressed people do not always have to be nice or educational towards their oppressors because the requirement that the oppressed must be polite to be taken seriously is a tool of silencing.  This is true.  Unfortunately, tumblr seems to understand this as "if you’re right, you can be as rude and dismissive as you want."  Go on, bully anyone who doesn’t agree with you.  Claim they’re guilty of being some sort of *ist or *phobic and therefore no one has to listen to anything they have to say.

Everyone thinks they’re right and this sort of attitude encourages a stubborn and extremely self-interested mindset where no one learns anything.  No one expects you to put up with blatant prejudiced hatred but that’s almost never what’s actually occurring.  It’s just to shut down people who step out of line (see: the xkit guy).

If you’re right and someone else is wrong for not agreeing 100%, you don’t have to listen.

If you’re right and someone else is less educated or disagrees with you on a social justice issue, you don’t have to listen.

How could this result in anything BUT a proliferation of the most extreme viewpoints from people who are desperately trying to hold onto their own voice and credibility?

If you fuck up, no one listens to you so the only people left to claim “authority” are the True Warriors of social justice, because it is so, so easy to (unfoundedly) accuse someone of some social justice transgression, and then they are Wrong and their opinion is Invalid and they deserve all the abuse you can throw at them.  Because being racist, or sexist, or transphobic IS bad, ad we all know that, and that’s why calling someone that is a really great way to ensure that no one will defend them.  The more accusations you can lump on a single person, no matter how unsubstantiated, the better you look!  I cannot tell you how many posts I have seen that go “if you don’t believe very specific X, you are TRASH and SCUM and LEAVE MY BLOG” as if this is helpful to anyone at all and isn’t just self-masturbatory bullshit on the part of the poster.

Of course, none of it is about real people with real struggles anymore.  It’s about who’s got the most cred and who gets to have their opinions heard and who can find the newest and most extreme opinion to have.  Who can bully who and be justified in it.  Which opinions are the correct ones and which you have to be silent about.  You can be as self righteous as you want about it but it turns out there’s a difference between being right and creating an atmosphere that doesn’t SUCK to exist in.
