Feminism is about equality.
Not just for women, but for people of different races, classes, religions, disabilities, genders, sexes, and sexual identities.
I’m a white, queer, cis woman. But I can’t say all of that if I want to feel safe on this website or on many other websites. To feel safe, I…
Lol reverse discrimination.
What’s so funny about that?
It’s not real. It’s like “reverse racism” or “misandry”. You can’t be oppressive to your oppressors. And tumblr is literally the only place POC, especially Queer POC, can actually express their emotions. But your feelings are hurt so we should just stop saying such mean things sorry sorry. Your feelings > POC expressing emotions. I forget sometimes haha my bad
Thank you for being a shining example of what I was trying to point out with this post.
So, just because I’m white, I deserve to receive death threats? Just because I’m white, my feelings don’t matter when someone tells me I should die? Just because I’m white, I don’t have a right to feel safe?
I know that white people have done horrible, unforgivable things to PoC throughout history and even during the present and that’s horrible, disgusting. I’m ashamed of the terrible things my race has done to so many other races around the world; even our own. Like the Irish, for example; white people who have suffered discrimination and abuse from other white people to the point of mass killing and an uncaring government that let them starve.
But why does that mean I deserve to be attacked? PoC have done terrible things too, you know- definitely not to the degree of whites, but there’s still plenty. No race out there is innocent.
And it’s terrifying. No PoC should fear for their life because of their skin colour and neither should I.
When someone does something wrong, call them out on it. Make sure they know exactly what they did wrong and educate them so that they can be less of a shitbag. But don’t attack random white people just because they’re white.
There are white people who are in the wrong, and white people who are innocent. There are PoC who are in the wrong, and PoC people who are innocent. Innocent people shouldn’t get attacked.
