#people are sending this person death and rape threats and misgendering them on purpose#if u dont agree with the comic thats fine#but calm down u dickweeds#tbh i kind of agree with this; tumblr arguements boil down to#ur a cishet scum lmao die#but what u said was really problematic?? plus i actually am trans#truscum go die lmao#but then theres like#when people fear/hate assholes and vent u have no right to tell them they are wrong#unless its a death threat those arent cool aT ALL EVER
the fact that this person is getting those threats just proves the comic.

Aiya Van Kooten everyone
When Aiya Van Kooten stood face-to-face with a burglar in her bedroom, her left eye twitched, then she went into “predator mode”.
“I screamed at him… jumped off my chair, leaped over my bed and sprinted after him down the stairs,” she said.
This is the best story of my life
“Although she was the only one home, Van Kooten said she had no regard for her safety - instead, she said she was just overwhelmed with “rage“….. ummmmm Hero!!!
Haha, badass Muslim woman. Love it!!!
This lady is so awesome. She lives with her grandma and was studying and had a towel on her head and no shoes but she chased them out of her garden, kicked one up the arse as he climbed a fence, they dropped a camera and laptop, she flagged down a passing driver to help her continue the pursuit, and it turned out he was ex-military, and they finally caught one of them in a park and pinned him as the police arrived. Now she’s going to visit the burglar in prison for the next few months to help with his rehabilitation.
So in summary:
This lady doesn’t just defend her home and loved ones, she will hunt you down, team up with other skilled individuals, get you put away, and then teach you the consequences of your actions until you’re a valuable member of society once more.
Seriously she’s a frigging superhero.
but tell me again about how muslim women who cover can’t possibly be strong or empowered.
I can’t remember if I’ve reblogged this before and I don’t really care.

This is the best birthday present I have ever had.
I’m just going to leave these here.
GUYS. ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS. ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS RIGHT NOW. YOU’RE GOING TO STOOP TO TELLING PEOPLE TO KILL THEMSELVES? JUST BECAUSE THEY AREN’T LIKE YOU? THE LAST ONE, “chose to be straight AND cis” EXCUSE ME BUT LAST TIME I CHECKED, YOUR GENDER AND SEXUALITY WERE NOT EXACTLY A CHOICE. IF THEY WERE, GOD KNOWS HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD ‘CHOOSE’ TO BE STRAIGHT. WOULD ‘CHOOSE’ TO BE CIS. BECAUSE BEING QUEER AND BEING TRANS*, FROM WHAT I’VE EXPERIENCED AND WHAT I’VE HEARD, IT’S NO FUCKING PICNIC. IT’S NOT FUN. I’M PRETTY SURE IF EVERYONE COULD CHOOSE, THEY WOULD ALL CHOOSE TO BE CIS AND STRAIGHT. AND I SEE YOU SECOND SCREENSHOT, CALLING ON ALL “white cishets” TO DIE. OK SO NOW WE’RE GOING TO TELL PEOPLE THEY NEED TO DIE BECAUSE THEY AREN’T PEOPLE OF COLOR? BECAUSE THEY WERE LITERALLY BORN AND THEY HAVE LIGHT SKIN? BECAUSE THEY CANNOT CHOOSE TO BE WHITE, THEY CANNOT CHOOSE TO BE CIS, THEY CANNOT CHOOSE TO BE HETEROSEXUAL ANYMORE THAN YOU CAN CHOOSE TO BE A PERSON OF COLOR WHO IS TRANS* AND QUEER. THERE IS NO CHOICE, AND YOU ARE LITERALLY TELLING PEOPLE TO DIE FOR WHO THEY ARE, AND THAT’S NOT OK. YOU CAN TELL PEOPLE THEIR ACTIONS ARE WRONG AND NOT OK AND EDUCATE THEM ON THEIR PRIVILEGES, BUT WHEN YOU START TELLING PEOPLE TO DIE AND TO KILL THEMSELVES THAT’S WHEN YOUR ACTIONS AND YOUR WORDS ARE NO LONGER OK AND I DON’T SUPPORT BULLYING PEOPLE INTO ACCEPTANCE.
Up until the point you tell people to die for being born a certain way, you have every right to be angry, to get mad at them. But nothing will ever give ANYONE the right to tell a person to die. NOTHING. It doesn’t matter if you’re part of an oppressed minority: telling someone to die because of the happenstance of their birth makes you a hateful person.
So don’t be surprised when people don’t like you, when they stop associating with you. You can tell yourself it’s because they’re being transphobic/homophobic/sexist/racist, that they’re oppressing you, but don’t kid yourself. It’s because you wish death on a person for being born a certain way. It’s for lowering yourself to the very level that you wish to change, that you rail against so desperately.
Anger is one thing. Wishing death on someone is entirely different.
