It’s good to know that we weren’t the only ones driven crazy by people who “axe” questions.

Okay, see, we talked about this linguisitic phenomenon in my grammar class. I don’t remember what it’s called, but it happens with other words, too - my professor used an example of “uncomfortable.” When you say it out loud, most likely, it sounds more like “un-comf-ter-ble,” thus mixing up the position of the r and the t, like how the k and the s are mixed in this speech pattern. However, not many people are out here acting high and mighty because someone said “uncomfterble” like they are with “ax,” and that has absolutely everything to do with academic biases - because “ax” is associated mostly with Black people (and occasionally lower-class whites), it’s viewed as “improper” speech, whereas most people, even middle & upper class white people who are thought to speak the most ~proper~ version of English, say “uncomfterble.”
And a quick Google search yields that even Chaucer used “axe” to mean “ask” within his writing. (Source) (Source)
tl;dr actually caring about whether someone says “ask” ~”correctly”~~ is rooted in racist & classist biases of language so, consider, not. 

Most linguistic pedantry is inherently racist in nature.

Actually the difference is that “uncomfortable” is a fairly large complex word, and so messing up the pronunciation is both common and fairly difficult to pick out, messing up 1 syllable out of 5, whereas Ask is a short, simple word, so mispronunciation is not as common and is very easy to notice, it’s like the difference between mispelling ‘cat’ and mispelling ‘predicament’ , one is simply more acceptable as it is particularly easy to get wrong

No, human excellence.

Let’s talk about set theory! In mathematical logic, we have a subfield called “set theory” where we study how items are collected into groups.
Providing a sort of logical bedrock, set theory informs foundational mathematics and computer science, among other fields, and continues to be a topic of mathematical research.
Sound too esoteric? Okay, you’re familiar with Venn diagrams, right? Venn diagrams are an example of basic set theory.

And you know how all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares? There we go, more set theory.
So, Black people are group within the larger group humans, i.e. all Black people are humans, BUT not all humans are Black people.
As you can see in the photograph above, Keven Stonewall, the Chicago teen who may cure colon cancer, is Black. Keven Stonewall’s membership in other groups such as humans, Chicagoans and teenagers occurs simultaneously; consider “Chicago teen.”
Why do we say “square” when we could say “rectangle”? Because “square” conveys useful information, including “rectangle”—as well as a refinement.
When we say Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence, we mean Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence.

So would people be completely justified in saying that Steven Hawking is an example of White excellence?

you can't forget "internalized", poppy!

depends which body part is internalising what 

I internalised my own penis once.. it ended in a hospital trip due to a urinary prolapse.

Do you believe that all PIV is rape?

im gonna answer this genuinely bc it’s an interesting topic rather than give you a smart ass answer like i normally would

but yeah all PIV is essentially political coersion. we have noooo idea whether or not we are truly consenting to sex because the circumstances under which we are giving that yes are very very compromised. compulsory heterosexuality is so widespread a lot of women don’t realise they are gay until after they’ve been married and had kids. i’m sure there are women who were gay who died without ever realising they were.

like we are taught to think plain ass white boys like urself are the epitome of attractiveness, but in reality are you? do we all really wanna fuck you or are we all just being told that we want to fuck you? how are we ever supposed to examine whether or not we want to fuck you without tearing down a system that tells us you’re what we want and replace it with a system that actually gives us autonomy.

so yeah while i could go have PIV with a guy and enjoy it, i’ve still been politically coerced into doing so and we can pretty much assume i have until that system is gone and i’m free to make my own decisions without anyone elses influence.

So you’re saying that women are too stupid to make their own choices, but men aren’t?

That’s pretty sexist tbh

Like I’m not even being a smartass either

to be honest like.. if that’s what you got out of that then you’re really fucking stupid mate maybe try reading again or thinking with your brain and not your dick for once in your life!!

What SHOULD I have taken from that? That society helps mold us as people? Well yeah that’s true but that doesn’t mean that women are suddenly incapable of seeing through that and deciding for themselves whether or not they want to have sex with someone. By your logic, NOTHING we do in life is consensual because external factors always play a role in everything we do.

Did you wear those pants because they’re stylish? Then you just got raped by your pants! See how easy this is?

Unlike you, I believe that men and women have agency, and while social factors affect our actions, they don’t diminish our ability to think for ourselves. I’ve never raped anybody because the women I’ve been with are smart enough to know that they want me. I’m sorry you’re too dumb to think on that level.

Omg feminists keep shocking me more and more with their stupidity
