“I’m all for women standing up and fighting back when they’ve actually been raped or assaulted, but what’s going on in the #metoo thing, and with black lives matter, and all the PC Fascists out there isn’t about standing up and fighting. It’s gone too far. You know how many times I’ve been fucked where half way through I’m like…I don’t want this anymore. I want to go home and eat pizza, but I’m stuck, this asshole is back there going at it, so I suck it up. I don’t accuse him of rape later because I had to live with my choices. The other thing, I’m a gay man, I know what it means to be oppressed. Stop acting like just cus you’re black or brown or trans or whatever, you own oppression. Plenty of white guys have struggled with oppression. What did we do? We fought back. We changed things.”
This from a cis-gendered white man in his 20’s.
One thought on “I DON’T CARE IF THIS PISSES YOU OFF: BEING A WHITE CIS-MAN IN THE AGE OF #METOO, BLACK LIVES MATTER, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND ALL THE WAYS THE WORLD OPPRESSES SOME WHILE SUPPORTING OTHERS”
I agree with everything you said here. Thank you for taking the time to express your thoughts, ideas and opinions. I believe you say what a lot of us are afraid to say. And by reading your words, I feel a little more empowered to speak my truth as well. Thank you!!
