A silly comic about a silly thing. Go to high res view if it’s difficult to read, sorry about that!
Social Justice Fighter 9/Barbarian 1/Holy Liberator 10.
I have been called a “Social Justice Warrior” as an insult a few times. So from now on, I would prefer you all use the term “Social Justice Time Lord.”
And you can all be my “Social Justice Companions.”
And together with our water pistols we shall fight the forces of sexism, misogyny, Daleks, and Cybermen.
Thank you, this has been an announcement.
Can’t decide if I’d rather be a Social Justice Time Lady, Social Justice Queen of Westeros, or Social Justice Lady Knight. WHOOP
Not a social justice queen, a social justice Khaleesi.
I’m not posting this to respond to the ironically self-righteous asshole, but to comment on how anonymous hate functions as a method to silence women on the internet. Let’s break this comment down really quickly.
First, there is the attempt to call me a “Social Justice Warrior” as an insult. Second, there is the attempt to insult me by calling me a “young girl,” with the intent to make me feel diminished and immature and the implication that young girls are stupid, self-righteous, and too full of themselves. Finally, there is the attempt to belittle my work by saying that it is inconsequential and full of shit.
I could rebut all of these points. I choose to call myself a SJW with a bit of humor, and I don’t see it as an insult. I’m most definitely not a young girl; I just graduated college and I work a full time job, which is why I haven’t been posting a lot lately. Furthermore, I find that young girls make some of the most insightful comments about feminism and Doctor Who, and their input has influenced the posts I write for this blog. This person’s attempt to call me a “young girl” would only insult me if I bought into their misogynistic opinions about the intelligence and assertiveness of young girls. Finally, I could remind this person that my work has been published and funded by grants, and that 14,000+ people follow this blog, so I know that others have recognized my work is good and that it is influencing others. Personally, I don’t really care if this doesn’t change the world in big dramatic ways. I’m just happy if it starts a discussion.
But that won’t change this person’s mind or stop them from sending me anonymous hate, because this isn’t really about me or my work. They are not engaging or criticizing any particular thing that I’ve discussed on my blog. They just want me to shut up.
You’re not important. You’re stupid and self-involved and too confident in yourself. Your work is shit and won’t change anything.
That’s not something someone says when they just disagree with you and want to criticize your work. That’s someone who hates the fact that you exist and you’re talking, and they just want to insult you and make you feel bad so that you shut up.
So, ladies, if you get anonymous hate messages like this, remember that it’s not really about you or your work. It’s a silencing tactic. Don’t let them silence you.

Shhhh, that’s too much self-reflection for your average troll. You’ll hurt their poor little heads.

See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.
He knows men are like that
his father was like that to his mother
he has experienced the pain firsthand, of what it’s like when men are like that
and he never wants men to be like that again and he fights tooth and nail against the men who are still like that
And moreover, he acknowledges his privilege [as an older white male who is famous/well known] and uses it to speak up. He knows what he is, and he never has to say he’s not like those men he fights against—he never says it, his actions speak loud enough for everyone else to see it.
Sir Patrick Stewart, everyone.
