"i wish stupid people didn’t reproduce" is how the liberal expresses their yearning for eugenics in a socially acceptable way and it’s not cool to ever let them off the hook for that
Implying that it isn’t already socially acceptable to be open about those things. The USA doesn’t just forcibly sterilize tens of thousands of Americans up until WWII — when, oops, turns out the Nazis were citing studies in California that said “eugenics is humane” and used our model — and then suddenly see the error of its way. The eugenics movement just infiltrates other movements, and then doesn’t get called out.
For example: people openly are pro-eugenics in the debate about abortion in the USA today. Of all the reasons to fight for bodily autonomy, it speaks volumes that the USA chooses eugenics as its narrative over ethics or human rights. I’m pro-choice, but it disturbs me when I see people say things like “You would be pro-choice if your fetus was gay” to conservatives, to emphasize with them that abortion should be legal for the sole sake of purging inferior fetuses — gay is inferior, treatable conditions are inferior, anything can be inferior to these people; if you’re not wealthy, Christian white straight and able of mind and body then good luck.
Also, eugenics is considered a progressive movement. Progressive doesn’t always mean liberal, since it fluctuates throughout time. Plus, conservatives say shit like that all the time too. No one gets let off.
I forgot I even asked for compliments last night cause I was so tired, so when I logged on and saw 5 asks I went ”oh no what did I do” and clicked and now I can’t stop smiling because 1) I’m a goofball with a short memory span that shouldn’t be allowed on tumblr at 5 AM and 2) you are all the sweetest people ever bwuhhh
