The DLCC sent us their Worst of the Worst site today. It’s their compendium of all the things that Republican state legislators have said since March 2013, when the GOP released their Autopsy Report, which promised less offensive rhetoric. We all know…

why is "hate breeds more hate" a bad thing to say?

Oh so many reasons.

1) it equates the anger of the oppressed to the hate of their oppressors.
2) it blames oppressed groups for their oppression. Bigotry doesn’t exist because people hate bigots. It exists because oppressed people oppose it. It exists because of bigots and because of privileged folks being complicit or tacitly condoning systems of oppression.
3) it’s fundamentally untrue. Hatred of oppression doesn’t lead to more hatred; it leads to progress.
4) it is used to attack any attempt by oppressed people to obtain liberation. Point out that something or someone is repulsively racist and all of a sudden you’re “breeding more hate”.

It’s a fundamental misrepresentation of reality that blames victims and excuses fucked up behavior.

I have literally never heard “hate breeds more hate” being levied at ANY oppressive people, just at the very angry oppressed individuals who lash out at them.

Also very much this.

• “At least you’re not dying!”
• “You’re only disabled if you let yourself be.”
• “You need to tell yourself you’re going to get better, else you won’t.”
• “But you can’t be in pain ALL the time, don’t exaggerate.”
• “You don’t LOOK ill.”
• “There’s so many people worse off than you.”
• “I’m sure you don’t REALLY need help.”
• “Sometimes it’s easier to just give up.”
• “Stop being so negative.”

- “disabled is a state of mind”
- “stop letting your physical limitations hold you back”

I have actually been told these things.

Please don’t mock people who do not understand sarcasm even if you feel it is extremely obvious it is sarcasm. Not everyone has the same set of social abilities as you and it’s ableist to assume anything other then that.

Catching subtleties is not my strong suit.
