Anonymous asked: to me, the problem is that gymnastike LINKED to the pictures which is the distribution of child pornography.

Yeah, that’s what people had been saying was bad but others were asking if just posting the article itself was bad. Links or not.

Personally posting the article at all was bad. USA gymnastics let them go to all their meets and coaches trusted them to be in their gym and posting that article like an hour after the story broke showed that they had no respect for the gymnasts or USA gymnastics and would throw them completely under the bus to make some money off of a gross story.

The fact that they actually linked to the child porn and then took over a week to write an apology, and only did so because usag kicked them to the curb, makes it even worse.

Honestly, I think that I cheer on anybody who is living their life on their own terms and wearing what they want to wear and representing what they want to represent. I think that no other female artist should be able to tell me to wear less clothes and I’m not gonna tell any other female artist to wear more clothes. You know what I’m saying? As long as it’s their idea, and they’re expressing their sexuality or they’re expressing their strength or it makes them feel like a woman to perform a certain way or dress a certain way. I just think that as long as it’s coming from them and they’re living their life on their own terms, I cheer them on. Honestly.

i dont get offended at white people jokes even though im white because: 

  1. i can recognize white people as a whole have systemically oppressed POC in america, which is where i live 
  2. most people when they make white people jokes only mean the shitty white people and i am not a shitty white person 
  3. im not a pissbaby
