I’m bitter I know but it’s prob due to the lack of sexual activity in my life
Social Justice Blurb!
I’m really tired of hearing people inside and outside of the internet say things like “it’s been 100 years, like get over it, that stuff didn’t happen to you” or “I’m being ‘punished’ for something my ancestors did” or “that doesn’t happen now”. To me that’s an abuser telling their victim to ‘get over’ the abuse. The oppressors don’t get to decided whether or not the oppressed feel oppressed or when they can stop being oppressed. Because it’s not some big conspiracy. Chances are if a person makes a statement about feeling oppressed, or being the victim of racism or sexism they aren’t making it up to get attention. So instead of turning the situation on to yourself and making yourself the victim try listening for once and respecting that what you do and say has consequences. Respect goes both ways and while you may not have personally done something to harm another person your refusal to acknowledge that person’s experiences makes you just as culpable.
