Half of the women I spoke to said , would he admit that’s he’s bit of a sexist, misogynistic — he sees women only in sexual terms? (x)
This is it, this is how I’m going to explain privilege to the next one.
THOSE LAST TWO GIF THOUGH. MALE FEMINISTS, PLEASE TAKE NOTE. I KNOW YOU DON’T WANNA BE SEXIST BUT PLEASE LISTEN TO WOMEN IF THEY TRY TO EXPLAIN HOW SOMETHING YOU SAID/DID IS PROBLEMATIC AND TAKE IT TO HEART, THANK YOU!
I agree with him. If you think I’m being sexist, let me know and I’ll work on it. I won’t get mad, promise.
honestly this mindset works for any kind of privilege - if someone from an oppressed group calls you out, don’t argue. Fix it.
Maybe I’m not clever enough to understand, but just because someone is from an oppressed group doesn’t necessarily make them correct right?
Some people will take offence to something that another person from that same group wouldn’t.
Just because you a part of what we perceive as a ‘group of people’ be it based on sex or race or whatever doesn’t mean you’re suddenly a spokesperson for that entire group. You know how YOU feel about something, it would be silly to think that you could know how ALL the other people feel about it.
There’s nothing I love more than stupid tumblr activists being all “SIGNAL BOOST THE MEDIA DOESN’T SHOW ANY OF THIS” and then i like walk past the news and it’s like one of the top stories.
Like, maybe if you actually took your head out of your ass for a few minutes and WATCHED the news you’d see it was there the whole time.
