Can we have a moment of silence for all the actors of colour who have been made to act along with stupidly racist scripts, women who have had to smile and make a joke out of the director’s misogyny, lgbt actors who must act like a stereotype to get a laugh out of an audience, all because they need this job and there isn’t anything better out there. Can we just acknowledge how hard it must be to bite their tongues and say “why yes you can make a crude joke out of who I am, because I need to eat tonight”.

basically, woc or trans women saying “i’m not really a feminist” bc they’ve been alienated by mainstream feminism is different from a str8 white boy saying “i disagree with feminism” bc he doesn’t think women are people

Listen again, none offensive, BUT did you see the kind of people who were at the Nazi marches? More than 50% of them were probably in their 20s-30s. Almost half of the American political discourse consists of baby boomers vs millennial as and it’s fucking hilarious because those were your millennial peers that were at that march. Almost every statistic shows that white millennial haven’t gotten any more racially sensitive or tolerant, this idea that they have and it’s old men who will literally keep over and die any second are the ones leading these fascist marches and not 30 year olds who are literally some think tank publishers, parts of the media class or tech giants lol

PLEASE STOP TRYING TO VIEW YOUTH AS SYNONYMOUS TO RADICAL ACTION OR LEFT WING POLITICS‼️‼️‼️

One of the major issues with the “That could’ve been my mother, sister, daughter” response to women’s murder and abuse is that it relies on respectability politics. No one has that response to sex workers, trans + gay women, homeless women, etc. when they are killed; despite actually being the most common targets. There are women you probably wouldn’t consider family, they deserve life, too.

That is why it’s necessary to assert women’s right to live solely because they are human, not because of their hypothetical relation to you. This is emphasized for black women.
