USEFUL UNSOLICITED ADVICE 101

Image result for useful advice"


- Language is one of the most potent tools that the human race has. Use it judicially. Sometimes in dissidence, we tend to use the same language that the oppression has, for instance, sexist language in feminist protests or casteist/communal language in social protests.

- Practice as you preach. Those of us who have had the privilege of education and awareness must use our misery/discrimination if any to raise awareness. If you hide it under the garb of "happy pictures" you are feeding the monster called patriarchy.

-Stop fake news and information.Before you press that forward/share button introspect, ALWAYS INDICATE SOURCE.

-Understand terminology. Mental health terms must not be used to describe criminal behavior. Poverty or discrimination must not be glorified in even art or poetry.

-Write/speak against the grain responsibly. Argue responsibly. Having ideological differences is alright, using those to demean the other personally never is remember that.

-Do not perpetuate myths/cliches that are discriminatory- look at this misery(Pain pornography), Disability is bravery(Inspiration porn), hashtags like #couplegoals #momisgreat and #happilyeverafter that perpetuate gender stereotypes.

-Respect CONSENT both online and offline. Do not pester people to add you or interact with you. As much as it is your right to approach them once it is their right to say NO or not react at all.

-Don't follow herds, if in a large group be a well-informed crowd.
