Sorry but sometimes I find it stupid, well contradictive, and funny at the same time when we fight for “equal”. Like, “oh, this is racism, this is wrong” when it happens to a non-white person. However have it happen to a white person, people will say they are not oppressed and stuff but the bottom line is, it. Is. Racism. They same goes for when some feminist fight for equality and well, when I hear men are pigs, etc. We sort of start to generalize guys…just like, I get what you’re going for but think of other people who are tied into your opinions
I think we need to have a conversation about institutionalized oppression and how it is different than simply “prejudiced” behavior.
You can not be racist against white people because there is no systematic scaffolding that enforces that oppression on a societal scale towards white people. One person’s prejudiced feelings towards white people does not have the same impact or affect that institutionalized racism does.
The same is true about sexism towards cis men. And “heterophobia” towards heterosexuals. Systematic oppression towards privileged groups, by definition, does not exist.
Comparing it to marginalized minorities generalizing about privileged groups is inherently flawed.
The anger of the oppressed can not be compared to the violence of the oppressor.

Why Guys Like Asian Girls - Anna Akana
Everyone needs to watch this video. Now.
100% on point especially about men thinking that having “yellow fever” is a compliment and we’re supposed to be flattered by it. It’s the #1 way to parade around your blatant racism.
Like, it’s totally okay if you’re not equipped to handle the issues of race and racism and colonialism and all the fuckery that follows from white supremacy and your (hopefully unintentional) place benefiting from it.
I respect your right to not have the spoons to handle shit. I respect the wisdom to realize you don’t know shit and should probably sit back and learn instead of trying to come in guns blazing, trying to take over the conversation.
No one can have a stake on every fight. No one can take each fight personally.
But don’t fucking throw us under the bus. And don’t fucking barricade yourself against criticism by flaunting your oppression credentials. Being autistic or OCD or depressed is not a fucking free pass to be a goddamn bag of racist shit. Being gay or trans or bi or poly or asexual or whatever you identify with doesn’t mean you’re automatically excused from being called out if you decide to show your racist ass in public.
I don’t care how fucking oppressed you are.
You don’t fix your oppression by shitting on a different group.
There’s no identity you can claim that gives you a free pass to be racist.
Why is this so hard to fucking understand and why are white people so fucking quick to bring up their struggles when they get called out on this shit? No one’s denying your struggles, we’re just asking you to not add to ours, you fucking jerk.
This is real shit right here
Dove has always been good at promoting body-image positivity, but they’ve got a new ad. Every time I go to the cinema I get to watch this magnificence in the pre-movie trailers and every time the entire audience gasps. Just watch it ok?
Placebo for the win!
I LOVE THIS!
Four for you Dove!The amount of self-loathing we internalize based upon physical differences is astounding. We’re taught to hate ourselves because we look a particular way, when we should be loving our differences instead. Good job Dove.
This is absolutely disgusting! Instead of spending that money to help homeless people, you know some of the weakest members of our society who need the protection the most, they’re installing fucking spikes!? (That btw, you paid for.) And you have to pay to sit on a fucking bench? I’m guessing that money will also go to another horrible idea… I would almost get a load of old couches and dump them everywhere those stupid spikes are.
The thing is, we could solve the homelessness problem, but no, no, we have to terrorize them because showing compassion would only be humane and that is something humanity outgrew ages ago.
