What has caused you to hate men so much?

Funny you should ask! I’ll let you in on my origin story if you like?

Well, once upon a time I was your average, man-loving, non-opinionated, quiet, submissive, totally sexually available young woman. I loved the dudes. I can’t tell you how much I worshipped those blokes. I couldn’t even open a jar back then. Ah, the memories. I shied from the colour blue. I refused to step into a room that contained power tools. Football frightened me into week long seclusions. Don’t get me started on the horror beer brought on. 

And then, one night, I left my window open. It was hot, y’know? I probably shouldn’t have done it. 

But in flew the Misandry Fairy. She was magnificent. As she fluttered into my room she left a trail of glittering misogynist tears that sparkled like diamonds. She wore blood red especially smeary lipstick, the type that scares guys and makes them afraid of kissing you, to ward them off. She had beautifully hairy legs, hairy arms, and wore high waisted shorts (which we all know is the 2014 trend men hate). It wasn’t 2014 at the time, you understand, but she’s a fairy so I assume she looked into the future to find inspiration for her particular misandric look. She was also a lesbian. Because we all know how those lesbians hate men, right? 

"Claudia," she said to me. "It’s time to face your destiny. Inside of you is a burning misandric rage unlike anything the world has ever seen. When you wake up tomorrow, I want you opening jars left right and centre. Open so many jars that the men get jealous. Open so many jars that you and everyone around you are in danger of drowning in the contents. Keep on opening them. No matter what. Never give up." 

I was so shocked that I did not answer. It was the middle of the night and I was unaccustomed to being visited by such wise and noble beings. 

Before she left, she turned around in the air, her fluttering rainbow wings shining in the moonlight, and whispered: “Also, you’re queer. The Coming Out fairy was busy so I took his shift. Have a nice day.” 

The next morning I awoke and began to carry out my purpose. From that day on, men have trembled to see me. Occasionally they whimper “don’t let her near any jars for the love of God”, but most of the time they merely scatter as I enter any vicinity I please. 

I owe her everything. Without her, I would not be the woman I am today. 

This story is 100% true. You can quote me on it and everything. Never let anyone tell you fairies don’t exist. They do. And they’re raging misandrists. 





Would it be out of line for me to call Javik hate ableist?

It’s heavily hinted at that he has PTSD of some sort, he just went through an extremely traumatic event that he will likely never recover from, and he really doesn’t have much of a future that doesn’t involve being gawked at. If he’s allowed to remember all his past, he actually DOES commit suicide

Because the fact that people expect him to let go of his people’s culture and the internalized racism that came with said imperialistic society and again, the fact that he’s obviously NOT (rightfully so) in an emotionally stable state by any means, to put on a big smile for Shepard and be a pal just REALLY rubs me the wrong way.

Whenever i read javik hate all i can think of is the the ableist hate and slurs I’ve seen over the years, especially when it comes to Liara.

Growing up I used to hear about how dangerous certain people were for their mentalities and for their disabilities. Like gossip of oh I bet he hits her I heard he’s bipolar and other really gross shit. Javik is in another time and another place and if he hadn’t had the ability to sense out into other beings and learn their language he probably would have been put down for having violent outbursts. The fact he can understand things is phenomenal given the circumstances.

So he’s a bit mouthy and violence loving but that’s the most tame thing to possibly come out of all this. He could be secretly killing and disposing bodies of people he doesn’t trust or suspects for something but he doesn’t. He could be rejecting all food at all times but he has a little give. He could’ve gunned himself down for any given reason because he’s literally alone in the universe. Everyone who thought and lived like him is dead. So yeah, his mind works differently than to how we could ever hope or understand. It would be like having something different with you and you’re literally the only one ever to have it and everyone shits on you for being different and not like them.

Huh, people shitting on someone for having their mind wired in a way differently than what’s considered normal and ignoring any possible other trauma the person endured because of it.

Sounds like ableism to me.
