Anonymous said: You can't just treat women like they're all equally oppressed. Some women have it worse than others and their needs take priority. You're comment was like if someone got pissed off at a doctor because they decided to treat someone who had been shot in the torso before treating someone who had their legs broken. I really don't understand the issue here, giving attention to the women who's needs are most dire has never had any negative effect on women that aren't as bad off.

Well that’s a really stupid analogy because you can die from a broken leg pretty quickly actually. And some gun wounds may only be flesh wounds I.e. to the torso depending on where it is.
I’m not going to argue with everyone over this. I can have my own opinion. We’re talking about in sci fi number one which is presumably western most likely. So my striving for all women to be treated equally does not diminish this. I don’t need to throw labels around constantly and this is the end of it. I won’t reply to anything else.

Okay then: if I’m not allowed to comment on other people’s posts now here’s my own goddamn post if it appeases you.

I would like to see more women in sci fi as a whole. Women who are bot stereotypes, who are not scantily clad all the time, oversexualised and constantly damsels. All women. I don’t care if they’re black or Asian or trans or asexual, bisexual, mixed race. I want all of them to be there whatever. I want the same to happen to guys. I don’t care what they look like or who they like I want well rounded characters whose sexuality or race isn’t their principle characteristic. They’re just people at the end of the day and should all be treated the same in my eyes: as humans. From an anthropological prospective I want it to be an accurate proportionate number of people to reality if you’re going for realism. Don’t sensationalise everyone’s sexuality and have token characters. That’s so much worse.

Feel free to change my post however you want for your opinion. Because at the end of the day, you can add to it if it’s on your blog and I won’t care. I’m not part of a club about anything. Nothing is exclusive or intellectual property. I’m using my knowledge of my own degree so I’m not going to argue about it either. I’m sorry for apparently offending everyone by commenting on someone else’s post. Here’s my post you wanted me to write instead.
Awesome. End of. No more arguing.

more trans women in sci-fi. more black women in sci-fi. more disabled women in sci-fi.

How about just more women who aren’t stereotypes or scantily clad or sexualised in sci fi.

How about people stop taking this fucking post away from the women it…

When you post on tumblr you run the risk of people joining their message to yours. I don’t see how there’s an issue with also wanting good female representation which would encompass these people too? Stop being so aggressive. Inclusively is not something you should be against. I’m not editing your post. I’m saying I would like that AND for the women already in as well as those representations of disabled, trans, black etc women to also not be over sexualised. Which I actually think can happen sometimes more with those demographics. Tbh I don’t care if you’re annoyed I have my own opinion but chill out a bit. Don’t attack me for agreeing with you and adding to it. As an asexual I was also mentioning less sexualisation for that sake as well. You may not like it but it isn’t those people exclusively that suffer and I think everyone should be treated equally. So yeah when I say women I don’t need to add trans or black or disabled. Because they’re women. I want every type of woman in sci fi. And I don’t want to label her when I’m saying it. I’m sorry if you’re annoyed by this but I am merely voicing my agreement with you so don’t jump on me over specifics. Chill.

No no no see I don’t give a shit if you think i’m being too aggressive. I’m tired of people trying to make posts about specific marginilized groups into some kind of free-for-all. When you do that, you might think you’re helping but you’re not. You’re drowning out marginilized voices. This post was not about all women. This post was about black, trans, and disabled women.

"I am merely voicing my agreement with you so don’t jump on my back about specifics."

No. No you’re not. If you merely agreed, you wouldn’t feel the need to add on to this post with some bullshit about all women. And the specifics are what made this post important.

"You may not like it but it isn’t those people exclusively that suffer and I think everyone should be treated equally."

At what point did I say other women didn’t suffer?? I am aware that not only black, trans, and disabled women are oppressed. My point is:

this post

was not

about them.

Do not take something meant for a certain demographic and make it about everyone.

Do not do that.

It is an asshole thing to do.

I still think I should be able to say what I like and really it’s unfair to think people shouldn’t comment on your posts. I’m an anthropologist and the thing that most commonly comes up is that these people want to be accepted without being separated. But fair if that’s what you think I apologise but I’m not being an asshole.

And yet you’re missing the point.

Stop tone policing.

This post was NOT about “ALL” women, it was about TRANS WOMEN, BLACK WOMEN and DISABLED WOMEN.

If you want a post about “ALL” women in scifi, MAKE YOUR OWN POST.

I’m not missing the point. I can comment on literally whatever I like. You’re the one policing things if you think about it.

The huge amount of pressure on young girls to let their boyfriends get away with everything and not to stand up for themselves, lest they stop being a ‘chill girlfriend’ and instead become a horrible, controlling harpy is such bullshit.

Stop teaching young girls that demanding to be treated with respect and courtesy makes them shrill, over-emotional, or unworthy of listening to.
