here we go around in circles again.
waah white women don’t understand.
waah WOC are always pointing out the negatives.
waah women. waah men.
notice a pattern? there’s a lot of exclusion and a lot of complaining.
where’s the dialogue? you can make however many documentaries as you want, but the fact of the matter is, no one is really getting it. the language is distorted and lost among a ton of other things.
and that’s my main issue with feminism.
it’s overwhelming. there are a shit ton of issues to address and everyone’s trying to do it in their own way.
on the flipside, progress is being made in small sectors.
but… when is it all going to come together?
i’m really tired of hearing about beauty standards. really tired of it.
CAN WE STEP OUTSIDE OF OUR BODIES, PLEASE?
also, can we recognize the fact that for many “white”/white women, this whole concept of ” ‘white’ ‘woman’ as ‘beauty’ standard” “specified characteristics most commonly found in ‘white’ ‘women’” is a new concept for A LOT of people? WOC AND white women (AND MEN AND EVERYONE INBETWEEN) are coming to terms with their shit every day. it’s a process. a slow one. an individual one.
so before you go making claims that “white” “women” (as a whole? really?) aren’t “getting it” please realize that the battle is simultaneous and on-going and everychanging.
not everyone has been taught to “see”/”recognize”/challenge/understand in the same way.
i’m one of those people who has taken a step back from this whole ideology because i realized i was following a specific mindset. in taking a step back, i’ve noticed a lot of patterns that leave a bad taste in my mouth — finger pointing and really aggressive language that tends to put people on the defensive way before they can even piece together thoughts or articulate an opinion.
i’m tired of being divided.
“white” “women” are just as justified in creating/consuming/analyzing documentaries on beauty standards as anyone else. once that has happened, we can talk about privilege. there’s a whole list. and they intersect.
instead of harping on what one “race” or group is NOT doing or what they are doing WRONG, let’s focus that energy inward and question what it is inside of us and about our prescribed/chosen identities that triggers the bad taste in our mouths.
work in progress, eh? we can’t do everything at once. not everyone can be serviced or satisfied by the movements or the ideology.
you know what happens when you throw terms like “universal standard” “privilege” “oppression” “intersectionality” “colonialism” and the like at people who have NO fucking idea what they mean? they shut down and the buck stops there.
take a moment to explain. take a moment to dialogue.
dialogue =/= debate
back to grading these vocabulary exams. bye.
Look at the white woman make her self the victim after silencing WOC
Look at this bitch really want to talk about “dialogue” when she wasn’t listening in the first place
Look at the white woman making her self out to be a fucking Marty after throwing WOC under the bus and getting called out for it
” i’ve noticed a lot of patterns that leave a bad taste in my mouth” SHE doesn’t like what we’re saying so WE’RE the ones who are wrong
We’re interpreting our own lives wrong because some white bitch don’t like what we’re saying
“waah WOC are always pointing out the negatives.”
” there’s a lot of exclusion and a lot of complaining. “
A white woman talking about a movement for all women being dominated by white women and then has the audacity to talk about exclusion.
Why are WOC being “abrasive” after YET AGAIN, being silence by white women and then told we’re talking about our own lives in the wrong way because it leaves a bad taste in her mouth.
This bitch is talking about fucking “dialogue” when WOC made our selves VERY CLEAR but because we’re saying things that leaves a “bad taste” in her mouth, we’re wrong
She’s minimised our lives to “complaining”
Bitch didn’t listen to anything we said and has the gall to talk about US “take a minute to dialogue.” Fuck off
You make my stomach turn. Reasons why white feminist are the scum of the Earth
oh goodness me! how dare we call white folks white and want to talk about myself once in a while instead of their problems all the fucking time! how dare we not be willing to put things affecting us on the back burner YET AGAIN for a greater good that is neither great nor good for us at all!
how dare we not sit around and wait for other folks’ consciousness and ability to see us as human beings! it’s not like we haven’t been waiting for that shit for centuries already or something!
yeah okay. talk that “divisive” shit if you want to. we’re only dividied as long as you fail to recognize my humanity, which you clearly do, hunty
