"Satire is meant to ridicule power. If you are laughing at people who are hurting, it's not satire, it's bullying."
- Terry Pratchett

To everyone faving and boosting this: We're glad you like it, but that's only half the message. You gotta act on it.

When someone "jokes" about a marginalized group or groups in a way that punches them instead of the system oppressing them, speak up & make sure they understand that that's not okay.

If your "jokes" about trans people are making fun of our existence instead of the system that oppresses our existence, they're not jokes. You're just being a bully.
