*makes heterophobic text post*
It’s a metaphor, see? You make a mean text post, but you don’t back it with thousands of years of violently-upheld institutional power, so it doesn’t have the power to actually hurt anyone.
egalitarianism is the deliberate, and oftentimes benign, silencing of an oppressed group in order to maintain the social hegemony
egalitarianism is being cognizant of the fact that there are social inequities and choosing to aid both sides with the same vigor
egalitarianism is an ideology that perpetuates oppression by doing nothing to reduce the chasm that lies between two social groups
no justice no peace launch cops into the sun space fuck fuck the police
I hope people are aware that this is not a real image produced by the Black Panthers. It was created by the FBI as part of a coloring book made to look like the Black Panthers created it. They sent out several copies of this coloring book to several supporters (mostly the white ones) of the Black Panther Party hoping to put a damper on the growing number of supporters they amassed at the time.
This was part of the efforts carried out by the U.S. government to actively disrupt, infiltrate, and sometimes totally destroy political movements, which it continues to do to this day. Look up COINTELPRO; it’s all there.
The NYPD tried to start a hashtag outpouring of positive memories with their police force.
If this were ever a bad idea, it was probably the worst idea for arguably the most corrupt police force in America.
What the person running the Twitter account probably failed to realize is that most people’s interactions with the cops fall into a few categories:
1. You are talking to them to get help after you or someone you knew was robbed, beaten, murdered, or sexually assaulted.
2. You are getting arrested.
3. You are getting beaten by the police.
In category 1, you are probably not going to be like, “Oh, let me take a selfie with you fine officers so I can remember this moment,” and the other two categories are not things that the NYPD would like people on social media talking about. Additionally, the people who use Twitter a lot (and who aren’t Sonic the Hedgehog roleplayers) are the type who love fucking with authority figures. In any case, #myNYPD quickly became a trending topic in the United States, largely because people were tweeting and retweeting horrific images of police brutality perpetrated by New York City cops.

and this popular athletic straight boy sittin in front of me turned around super slow and looked at me and went “no… hetero?” in the TINIEST MOST BROKEN VOICE IMAGINABLE like he looked and sounded so timid and confused and he was looking at me like his whole life has been a lie because he realized he might be sitting near a queer person
