WHEN PEOPLE SAY YOU HAVE PRIVILEGE THEY ARE NOT SAYING THAT YOU DON’T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS
THEY ARE SAYING YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SPECIFIC PROBLEMS THAT COME FROM OPPRESSION
THIS IS NOT A DIFFICULT CONCEPT
My education book is keepin it real
“I didn’t expect it would be all women and it was a small classroom and about 40 women were sort of sitting in a semicircle and the thought of spending two hours every week sitting there for the next four months was overwhelming.”
Male expects special accommodation because he doesn’t want to be around women, and then sues for discrimination. Amazing.
homeboy never heard of dropping??
So…he was stuck into the same situation that many women in STEM fields are stuck in but it’s different because it scared his little man feelings?
An actual shy person wouldn’t go to court over this. All that exposure and scrutiny? No thanks.
No, because see, he’s love shy which is a chronic inability to deal with women because they might not want to date you.
He went to a women’s studies class expecting men
HE WENT TO A WOMEN’S STUDIES CLASS EXPECTING MEN
I have -1920% sympathy for this douche.
lol attendance and participation were only 15% of the grade. it would have been possible to pass without ever attending if his work wasn’t shit.
He wasn’t stuck in the same situation as women in STEM fields (as said above) because this was only ONE single class. Women in STEM fields experience being outnumbered and ostracized for their entire academic career. NOT ONE PUNY LITTLE SEMESTER LONG CLASS.
I hope the judge laughs him out of the courtroom.
“I believe if you want to attract more males to these courses, you have to work with them. My request for accommodation was reasonable.”
Get the fuck out. How much more accommodation do men need??
From all the trans and cis women who are in male dominated fields, all I have to say is welcome to our world dudebro and consider yourself lucky you only have go through it for one semester. Seriously, ridiculous.
In one women’s studies class I took there were maybe 3 guys in a class of about 40-50. One guy I remember came to every class and sometimes participated, and was usually very respectful. We had one class where we were talking about menstruation and images of menstruation in pop culture (the whole course was on images of women in pop culture), and he left at the very beginning of that class and we never saw him again.
"If white people are so privileged why is there a Black Entertainment Network and no White Entertainment Network?"
"Men don’t have privilege, there are women’s only gyms!"
"Why isn’t there a campus centre for straight/cis people!?"
SAME REASONS WHY IN MARIO KART YOU DON’T GET BLUE SHELLS OR LIGHTNING BOLTS WHEN YOU’RE ALREADY IN FIRST PLACE, ASSBAG.
- calling the legitimate anger of oppressed people “drama” or “hate”
- referring to allocation of human rights as simply “politics”
- referring to basic human empathy as “political correctness”
- the childlike refusal to admit mistakes and throwing a literal tantrum
- "it’s just my opinion"
Reminder that whilst you are under no obligation to educate people, telling them to google the issue they want to know about is not incredibly helpful or ideal.
Since 2009, Google have amended their search algorithm software for all users to personalise results as per data Google can collect from that user- adsense data, previous searches and content of a Google user account if existent.
This means that not everybody sees the same search results as everybody else and the negative aspect of this personalisation is that when someone is looking for info on social issues, ESPECIALLY controversial ones with large amounts of conflicting content produced, Google turns into one giant confirmation bias machine.
So saying “this is on the first page when you search [topic]” isn’t very helpful because all that proves is it was on the first page for YOU; and if the person trying to educate themself is trying to break out of an entrenched bigoted opinion it’s likely less favourable content was on the first page for THEM.
tl;dr: Google does not show users content that conflicts with their existing beliefs because its designers consider that bad customer service.
An “egalitarian” is someone who, realizing that a scale is imbalanced because there are six pounds on one side and twelve on the other, seeks to correct the imbalance by adding six pounds to both sides.
well that was the best damn explanation I’ve seen.
oh no! oppressed groups are calling out problematic behaviour! its almost like theyre exercising that ‘free speech’ thing everyone keeps talking about. how dare they. thats only for offensive jokes and NORMAL people
