#NotYourShield, Donald Trump Edition

Wait, did I say #NotYourShield? I meant the complete opposite of that.

I ran across this #TotallyYourShield meme featuring Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson on Twitter today.

Did Pierson choose to be used in this meme? No. Did Trump hire her so he could use her as a “shield?” Doubtful. He likely chose Pierson — a Muslim-hating provocateur who once wore a necklace made of bullets for a TV appearance — because she’s as obnoxiously untethered as he is.

But the Trump fan who posted this meme is happy enough to use her, utterly unapologetically, as a shield.

Funny how that works.

#Totallyusingherasexpendableshield

Speaking of which the ex breitbart reporter got some death threats from some repeat offenders. Fortunately the man was arrested.

OT: but good video from a good channel that reminded me a lot of the flaws in the terrible evo-psych that is often ridiculed here.

Oh hey, it turns out evolution not only turns out stuff that’s inconsistent with 50s gender roles, sometimes they’re turned on their head.

Protip: “I’m not sexist, I have a mother!” is never going to work. Every misogynist has women in their lives. Some of them are women.

“I’m not racist, I have [PoC] friends!” Your ‘[PoC] friends’ don’t speak for all black people just because they agree with you.

“I’m not homophobic, I have [LGBT] friends!” Your ‘[LGBT] friends’ don’t speak for all LGBT people just because they’re friends with you.

Saying “I love/support/have [minority] friends!” doesn’t excuse you from being bigoted. They are not your Get out of Bigotry Free card. They are not your shield from criticism, nor are they above criticism themselves.

That bullet necklace sounds really cool actually. A Chloe Price asethtic.

Yes, she’s okay right now, but if she puts a toe out of line, they’ll crucify her the same as they’ve done with other women who fallen from grace (so to speak).

Seahorses are amazing! My Pokémon headcanon for Seadra/Kingdra is… interesting to say the least
And yet, ‘Men’s Superiority Enthusiasts’ (I’m trying a thing) lose their shit, when expected to take even a minimal amount of care for the children they coproduce *grumble*

*Sigh* This excuse is so threadbare, I’m actually surprised anyone actually believes this is a solid argument.

What’s ‘not a conservative ‘ doing on that list? Who’s saying he’s not a conservative? Not the same people upset about his bigotry, I’ll warrant.

@Me I guess the real point is that biology isn’t morality. Can’t get too gung-ho about examples in the video because this is also a thing:

Biology is so very messy, trying to draw morals from it doesn’t work.

That’s basically how #Notyourshield is used. As a shield. They’re not MY shield. Or YOUR shield. They’re GnosticGimli’s shield. Or whatever other hate group decides to use it.

For Americans of nearly every race, gender, political persuasion and location, disdain for Donald Trump runs deep, saddling the Republican front-runner with unprecedented unpopularity as he tries to overcome recent campaign setbacks.

Weird! I thought that Milo said that “Daddy” would take care of everything! I thought that white supremacists had thrown their mighty support behind Drumpf!

Next will come the weeping and wailing and vows of revenge. The howls of “stabbed in the back.” They’re so tedious. And so dangerous.

If you want to draw conclusions about God from Nature, you end up with the following:

The Creator would appear as endowed with a passion for stars, on the one hand, and for beetles on the other, for the simple reason that there are nearly 300,000 species of beetle known, and perhaps more, as compared with somewhat less than 9,000 species of birds and a little over 10,000 species of mammals. Beetles are actually more numerous than the species of any other insect order. That kind of thing is characteristic of nature.

#notyourshield is still the most confusing hashtag to me. I mean, I understand what they think it means but it really makes no sense at all. It’s basically the “I have black friends, so I can’t be racist.” of hashtags.

Out of Topic but…
Reddit had extend the feature allowing to block people from private message to post in forums.
The posts of blocked people become invisible to you.
In other words : Ostrich head in the sand.
“You are annoyed to hear and see racism everywhere ? Tadam ! With MagicBAEP Blindfold And EarPlug, the racism disappears of your life !”
Switch racim with whatever you like, the MagicBAEP is multipurpose.

First, it is impossible to block all the ranters (there are too many and the blocade is solely based on the alias). Second, you may even miss potential dangerous rants (e.g. doxxing). Definitively, Steve Huffman knows pretty well who is the core and the support of the fora.

Occasional Reader:

Such a feature does have a use, but I agree it’s not a substitute for actual moderation (ie, disabling abusive accounts). It would be more applicable for cases of haranguing, where the user just doesn’t want to deal with some conspiracy theorist, for instance. An “I can’t see you” option, in that case, leaves the ranter shouting at a blank wall.

@chippywillbethere:

It’s that plus a smattering of “a person of color (or lgbt person, or woman, or person with disabilities) said this or agreed with this or supports this position” so therefore it’s also not racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic/biphobic/ableist etc.

Wait, what? You seem to be saying it’s wrong to mute or block harassers, and that targets of harassment should be forced to see it all? I really hope I’m misinterpreting you.

Ocasional reader, I’ve been seeing a lot of people happy they can block people who stalk their post to argue with them. Sadly it seems you can only block people who have replied to you.

And the dark avenger
Maybe the crate just likes beteals. Or maybe they set up a universe with evolution and then let that play out on its own (my belief )

#NewYamSchool

I’ve never seen anybody use the hashtag other than #GooberGloopers pretending to be women and other marginalized groups. Could it be they are using them as a shield? Gee, who would have thought. Their ridiculousness and hypocrisy knows no bounds. If only we can harness that kind of disgusting energy into an actual fuel source.

I do not say it is bad to have the possibility to block incoming posts and/or messages. It is just sad that harassed persons have to do that just because the administrators and moderators do not really want to enforce respectuous policies. Ah, maybe i am to old for all this.
