"Any story dealing, however seriously, with homosexual love is taken to be a story about homosexuality while stories dealing with heterosexual love are seen as stories about the individual people they portray. This is as much a problem today for American filmmakers who cannot conceive of the presence of gay characters in a film unless the specific subject of the film is homosexuality. Lesbians and gay men are thereby classified as purely sexual creatures, people defined solely by their sexual urges."

"You think relationships are difficult? Try friendships. Try courting someone in order to convince them to join you in some nameless, shapeless Platonic complication — forever. Convince an adult stranger that you are worth a healthy slice of their limited time and energy without the prize of sex or romance."

So let me tell you why this is bullshit.

That “cure” everyone is talking about? It isn’t a cure. It’s a drug that hadn’t even been tested on humans before we gave it to those two Americans (who were white, yes, but were also in a missionary group trying to improve the lives of African children it’s not like they were fucking tourists or something). They could have both fucking died on the spot. The only reason they even gave this unfinished, untested drug to them is because the mortality rate for ebola is like 90% anyway so they thought why the fuck not. 

Now let’s have a little thought experiment for you dipshits who seriously don’t understand the situation. Imagine we gave this “cure” to every single person in Nigeria, Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia (yeah, it’s pretty fucking ignorant to just call them all “Africans”) infected with ebola (getting around the fact that it would be just about impossible to diagnose and treat every single one of them in time)… and they all died anyway. The “cure” didn’t work. 

You same fuckwads would lose your shit over that. “AMERICAN DRUG KILLS AFRICANS”, you would say. It would be all over Tumblr: “WHY DIDN’T THEY TEST THIS MORE BEFORE GIVING IT OUT OMG” and “USING AFRICANS AS TEST RATS FOR EBOLA DRUG SO WHITE PEOPLE DONT HAVE TO #RACISM”. 

You can’t really be so ignorant that you seriously think it would be a good idea to ship crates of this hitherto-unknown, untested drug to West Africa and just hope for the best.

While I would hesitate to co-sign that line about missionaries being oh so helpful in Africa. The rest of this is spot on. 

Yeah, that serum they’re using is basically like giving someone with a viral infection antibiotics. They won’t get rid of the virus. They’ll just keep you from getting sick with something else while your body is fighting off the virus.

Thanks for shutting down the racial conspiracy theorists

glad to finally see others saying it.

But when you look at the history of this country, 

DO YOU BLAME BLACK PEOPLE for thinking something more sinister is afoot, here? 

Like, what the fuck is all the ‘thanks for shutting down the racial conspiracy theorists’? 

BLACK PEOPLE LIVING IN AMERICA HAVE EVERY RIGHT to see a racial issue where there isn’t one, 

Because 9.9 times outta fucking 10, 

THERE’S A RACIAL COMPONENT AT PLAY, even as white folks try to deny it. 

THIS ONE fucking time, it’s not really *race*, and y’all are all “FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT!”

SIT DOWN with that bullshit and stop disrespecting Black folks.

anybody who says racial conspiracy theorist can kiss my whole ass
