I’m so tired of people who are a minority hurting their oppressors back as retaliation. Your hurtful actions against your oppressor are not justified, even if you are being oppressed. You’re just becoming the same kind of person they are. So stop.
Umm…OP is right. Stop trying to punish white people for their privilege, and focus on instead giving those privileges to the minorities. Movements only lose credibility when they vilify other groups. Feminism has a bad connotation now because so many extremists want to punish men, or cast them as evil and oppressive. This alienates men who might otherwise be allies.
White people can’t focus on giving privilege to PoC if the majority of them not only refuse to acknowledge that they’re privileged, but claim that they’re being victimized by PoC. And it doesn’t help that there are PoC validating their petty complaints and defending them at every turn. *side-eye and dramatic pause* Also, I don’t know how many times I’ve said this: people who think women are superior to men aren’t feminists. The only thing giving feminism a bad name is the clustermess of idiots that keep associating feminism with a group that has nothing to do with feminism (no offense). As for the men who feel alienated by feminism for the actions of people that aren’t feminists, who needs allies that can’t even be bothered to research a cause that they wanted to be part of in the first place?
