So, having saved oh you know THE ENTIRE GALAXY AND SHIT FOR THE SECOND FUCKING TIME in Mass Effect 2, I’ve picked this back up. Still in Detroit. And, having just done this, my immediate thought was, of course, “HOLY SWEARWORD YOU GUISE I’VE GOTTA MEMEGENERATOR THAT EFF.”
I’ve been a bit ill this week and may be a teeny bit stir crazy going out of my fucking mind.
Yeah, so Adam Jensen is a meme now…
OK, this is getting unhealthy. Last one.
I could do this all night…
Y’know what? Fuck it; I gots teh rage.
Privilege Denying Dude was shut down for ‘copyright infringement’ after a mass of complaints from angry people on Tumblr recently. The iconic visual of the smug white man crossing his arms was replaced by a photograph from a reader before the meme generator template was restored.
It makes me absolutely wild with glee that so many misogynists, racists, and other online scum were trolled to the point of kicking and screaming for Tumblr to save them.
March on, PDD.
Because the opposition and backlash against this meme seems to suggest that even worse than the fact that people have privilege and use it against others is the fact that marginalized people sometimes feel like commenting on that fact. This is what lead George Bush to look back upon eight years of torture, extraordinary rendition, shitty foreign and domestic policy, stunted economic growth, cronyism and class warfare against the poor and complain that Kanye West hurt his feelings.
I am a white, well-educated man in his early thirties from the UK. But, yes, those using the Privilege Denying Dude meme are correct. Those who have a problem with PDD most likely are PDD. And those who whine and moan about this so hard that the image has to be changed are PDDs who need to harden the fuck up.
Not one of mine, but I just had to repost.
