I’m not a fan of Animal Crossing.
I’m beyond that stage.
I’m a part of the game, and it is a part of me.
We are one.
lets all say it together
- white people arent the problem
- cis people arent the problem
- straight people arent the problem
- men arent the problem
- shitty people are the problem
- intolerant people are the problem
- just because youre a white, cis, straight male or ANY combination of these things doesnt mean youre bad
- just because youre not straight/not cis doesnt make you an angel
- stop blaming one group of people for your opression
I can fucking smell the rank condescension that is coming from this post days after I get a whiff of it
white/cis/straight/men aren’t the problem?
at the root of every racist institution is a white person, now of course this white person may not be you, but that still makes white people collectively the common component of oppression towards minorities. If someone, who has , their entire life most likely, had to suffer the slings and arrows of major or minor racist acts, most of which the majority of white people have no clue about at all, says “white people are the problem”, if youre not part of the problem they probably don’t mean you!! they aren’t writing off every single white person ever as problematic, theyre commenting that most white people are (and we are, don’t lie to yourself).
if you took a poll of a thousand cis people who don’t use this website, “do you know what the word ‘cis’ means?” 99% of everyone in that poll is going to have no clue. trans issues are still in the dark to a lot of people, awareness is still in its beginning phases. so many people will look at someone who is trans and purposefully misgender them, refuse to use their preferred pronouns, degrade them, KILL THEM, trans suicide rates and homicide rates are the highest of any population in America. there is plenty of evidence to suggest that cis people are the problem.
every single person who has ever called me a name, talked about me, used slurs that I hate specifically to get a reaction out of me has been straight. now of course, I have stated that “straight people are a problem” in the past, and of course I don’t mean the people who I know aren’t. im not disowning all of my straight friends forever because theyre straight, but every single awful homophobic person ive ever had to deal with is straight. its statistically almost certain that homophobes are straight. therefore straight people as a whole are the problem.
at this point im just rehashing all of my previous points, you get it.
shitty and intolerant people ARE the problem, it just happens to be that straight/white/cis men are more than 85% of the time shitty and intolerant, whether they mean to be or not, and because these singular groups are the majorities, and are in power, that makes their actions against minorities OPPRESSIVE. one group is responsible for these oppressions, and youre damn right im gonna blame them, since you know, they are at fault. and of course being any combination of those things does not make you awful automatically, just like being a minority doesn’t automatically make you a saint, not every generalization is a personal attack, but hopefully when you see a generalization you stop and think “huh… is that me? do I do that? let me educate myself”
but don’t you dare tell people theyre ridiculous for blaming their oppressors for some of their hardships, because they undoubtedly have a right to.
This weekend, activists in Uganda - a country where homosexuality is punishable by death - held their first Pride.
This is the epitome of courage. I have no other words.
really because according to that post I shouldn’t be blaming straight people for my oppression
that 73k note post tells me that straight people aren’t my oppressors
