Okay so with the update came a lot of people on tumblr making silly jokes about Kankri’s giant wall of text. Well I, for one, actually want to know what he says, and I’m going to get to the bottom of this.
Okay, so there’s the original. First, let’s select juuust the text…
Yeah, something like that. Now let’s enlarge that!
Hmm, still not quite enough. Alright, we’ll select just a portion this time.
Yeah, that section right in the middle ought to work. Now let’s enlarge that.
“I further apologize if your orientation precludes the possibility, as a pale aromantic, panquadrant demiromantic, something in the gray palesexual department or such, and hopefully you are not triggered by such presumptuous concillianormative language”
And hopefully we all remember the infamous ‘not a homosexual’ thing, in which Karkat revealed that he doesn’t know what a homosexual is.
And at some point Kankri mentioned that he studied human culture.
I like to think that none of these terms were actually used in troll culture, and Kankri just adopted them in order to have more issues to defend.
sounds about right
and it’s probably the same with cisblooded and otherbloods/blood-multiples. probably issues that never actually existed on alternia or beforeus, but were made up in order to have more to talk about.
Look, these people, they’re fucking retarded. Rape can’t cause pregnancy? Breast milk cures homosexuality? I caused a hurricane by challenging creationism? Who can possibly take these people seriously anymore?
It used to be Republicans didn’t believe in global warming or evolution. That was bad enough. Now they don’t even believe in egg + sperm = baby. Where does Todd Akin think babies come from? Does he think there are separate storks for people who were raped and people who weren’t?
Hey look at me! I’m the rape stork. I drop off all my babies directly at the orphanage.
He’s a fucking idiot. Just a plain fucking idiot. I’m sorry - I don’t say that word very often - but it happens to fit in this case. He’s just a fucking idiot.

remember this when you write your fanfics or draw your fanarts
remember this when you make your opinion posts and your AUs
you CAN take all of these topics SERIOUSLY
you CAN do the research and apply them
but what you MUST remember is that just because these are fictional characters, you are dealing with REAL issues that REAL people have to deal with every second of every day and if someone comes to you saying you offended them, instead of being an asshole how about taking a step back and really THINKING about what you just said
it’s perfectly okay to say “i’m sorry i hurt you, but i disagree” THAT IS FINE
YOU’RE ALLOWED TO DISAGREE
but that doesn’t mean you haven’t hurt someone and that doesn’t mean you don’t have to say you’re sorry. and even if you DO disagree, please TAG YOUR POST so you don’t look like a gigantic, insensitive dickwad.
