When people think being mean is oppressive, they just show they have no concept of what oppression is.
unlearning problematic behavior is a long ass process
you will fuck up
handle it gracefully.
If you think that representation doesn’t matter, that’s probably because you’re already represented.
Your professor will not be happy with you if he says the Stanford Prison Experiment shows human nature and you say it shows the nature of white middle class college-aged boys.

Google’s Doodles a way that the search giant use to celebrate, commemorate events and people, and at the same time a great way to get attention, press coverage and create fans.
A decision to feature Cesar Chavez today instead of anything related to Easter have created controversy and uproar, going to even accuse Google Jewish founders of war on Christianity, others accused Google of mainly choosing Jewish people for top managing positions and thus the company as being a Jewish company.
With this huge quantity of antisemitic and other absurd accusation, many have decided to defend Google by asking when did the search engine become a calendar for Christian holidays.
Imagine what it would be like not living in a society where everyone felt compelled to recognize and honor your holidays….oh, wait!
What shape are you?
privilege in a simple cartoon
no but seriously does it work
if you pretend patriarchy does not exist, will they promote you, will they give you the same pay? will saying “we’re all people” stop men from harassing and assaulting you? if you say your sex doesn’t affect your position in society, will male politicians in your male-dominated government support your rights? if you think we’re equal, will men stop fetishising your degradation and humiliation and quit joking about it?
and most importantly, EVEN IF YOU’RE PRIVILEGED ENOUGH TO PRETEND SO, WILL THAT STOP MEN FROM TREATING OTHER WOMEN LIKE SHIT? WILL THAT STOP THEM FROM KILLING US? DOES YOUR LUCKY SITUATION ERASE THE FACT THAT WOMEN DO MOST OF THE WORLD’S UNPAID LABOUR? IF YOU THINK OBJECTIFICATION IS NOT A PROBLEM, DOES THAT MEAN WOMEN WILL NO LONGER BE FORCED TO ENTER PROSTITUTION? IF YOU DON’T MIND RAPE JOKES, DOES THAT MEAN MEN WON’T RAPE ANYMORE?
