Ask me anything
You cannot be racist to white people
just like you can’t fire your boss
because you don’t have that power
See, this is a great analogy because an employee can say the same words to their boss and it would have a completely different effect as their boss saying those words to them. A boss tells the employee: “You’re fired.” and what happens? The employee is fired. An employee tells the boss: “You’re fired.” and what happens? The employee will either not be taken seriously and laughed at, or more likely, will be reprimanded for overstepping their role and punished or fired. Such is how PoC are treated in relation to white people. Whites saying discriminatory statements about or to people of color has real world effects; they are taken seriously, they are believed, and those statements effect the treatment of people of color. But PoC saying those same exact statements to white people are either laughed at or, more likely, considered to be overstepping their bounds and are punished, because they lack the backing of a kyriarchal power structure that reinforces racial supremacy.
yeah i’m actually a huge fan of people being treated like they’re human
the fact women are viewed as being more sexy at 15 than 40 is the creepiest thing in the world
when i was 12 years old my health teacher told us all that he thought girls were the most beautiful at age 14-15 and we would never be that beautiful again for the rest of our lives
back then it scared me that i wouldnt stay pretty
once i got older it scared me that he found no shame in saying that, and neither do countless other men
No I think it’s due to the societal demand that women be sexually repressed.
