Just your daily reminders:

  • Racists are a problem
  • White people are not
  • Homophobes are a problem
  • Straight people are not
  • Transphobes are a problem
  • Cis people are not
  • Sexists are a problem
  • Men are not

And most importantly,

  • Hating an innocent person solely because of their race, sexuality, or gender makes you a fucking asshole

Okay, I can only speak for myself, but as a cis, straight, white person, I understand that you may have been hurt by cis, straight, and/or white people in the past, and it’s okay if you don’t trust me or people like me right away.

With the amount of racism, homophobia, transphobia, and sexism in the world, how do you know which cis, straight, white men to trust?? It doesn’t make you a “fucking asshole.” It makes you conscious about your own safety, and that’s okay.

People of Tumblr: Should I attempt NCIS NOLA??

I’m a big fan of NCIS LA, but I haven’t watched NCIS the original series in years.

The opening shot is literally just an old white guy. I’ll give it ten more seconds.

Oh good, a jazz(?)…

Wow. Feel the stupid.

Seriously, this girl/woman gave up on NCIS: New Orleans because of the gender and race of the leads.

How SJW of her…

An intelligent judgment would’ve been if the show was actually good.

Eg. Charmed had three female leads, but it was pretty damn bad. And from season 5 onwards, pretty damn unwatchable.

But I have a feeling this girl would down that shit and say it’s gold just because it has three female leads.

But the three girl were white, so she might find it racist…

Charmed is actually my favorite show on television. But it did go downhill after season 5.

As for NCIS NOLA, IT TAKES PLACE IN NEW ORLEANS. Television needs more diversity, so I assumed a television show based in a predominantly African America part of the country would have a predominantly African America cast, which was the only reason I was interested in watching it. When it didn’t have what I was looking for, I turned it off.

I watch plenty of shows starring straight white men, and it gets pretty boring after a while. As a viewer, I have the power to decide what I want to watch on TV. NCIS NOLA is not something I want to watch.
