I've let myself get involved in too many keyboard wars this week, trying to explain racism and sexism and ableism. It hasn't done much but piss me off and give me a chance to air some memes. . My general life philosophy: Don't be a dick. If someone from an oppressed class (minorities, women, LGBTQ+ people, disabled people, etc.) tells you that your actions harm them, why is it so hard to listen and self-critique? Why can't you stop and say, "I hear you and I'll do my best not to be a dick." . Of course you have to convince white people that racism exists in the first place. You have to convince men that they actually do have advantages over women. You have to convince typical/neurotypical people that taking a moment to be inclusive won't harm them, but will make a world of difference to those with a disability. . I know that, as a straight white woman, I have a LOT of privilege. And if I'm fatigued just from arguing with other white people on the internet, how much more exhausting must it be for someone like a queer black woman to have to constantly justify her existence? . Get outside of your own head for a second, stretch your empathy muscle, and, of course, DON'T BE A DICK. . . . #privilege #intersectionalfeminism #intersectionality #feminist #feminism #lgbtqia #lgbtq #ableism #sexism #racism #womenwhowrite #womenwriters #writerslife #writersofig #writerscommunity #igwriters #instawriters #creativewriting #creativenonfiction #cbus #columbusohio

THIS IS WAY TOO TRUE! People always talk to people with accents as if they're stupid and it really bugs me. My mum speaks 100% fluent english and has no foreign accent at all, yet people still come up to her and talk to her like this just because she looks Asian. Our school has some exchange students over at the moment, and this girl in my class talked to this Japanese student suuuuper slowly as if she had the IQ of a box of crayons. It was honestly painful to watch. e.g instead of saying "Hey there, would you like a pen?" she'd say "Yooouuuuuu..... Peeeeeennnn???" Like she would speak in the slowest broken english to the Japanese student. Wonder why so many immigrants have trouble learning english? Cause people like that won't even speak to them properly. How are people supposed to learn English if you don't show them how? Even then, don't automatically assume someone can't speak english before speaking to them just because they're not white.- Mischa - - - - - #asia #asian #asianactivist #asianactivism #activist #activism #appreciation #appreciasian #feminist #feminism #intersectionality #intersectional #intersectionalfeminist #intersectionalfeminism #intersectionalitymatters #accent #foreign #immigrant #immigrants #english

Itโ€™s a tangible and intentional demand to devalue the existence of black people and uphold their personal interest. โ€ข This dynamic piece by @damemagazine lays out the history of this type of behavior by white women who in the midst of their own oppression find anyway to feel โ€œon topโ€. โ€ข Link to full article in my bio.
