So ok…First of all; I’ve always been a hothead about my beliefs, I’ve always been strong-minded about equality -for everyone, in every way- but as of late, I’m getting really tired of people who belong to groups that are opressed behaving like opressors.
I’m in if you wanna call out racists, misogynists, homophobes, transphobes, etc… But white shaming, cys shaming, “male” shaming?…c’mon!!!!!!
Yes, I’m white. Yes, I’m cis. SO WHAT? You just assume I’m a racist, a homophobe and a transphobe??? Do you know me to make those assumptions? No? SO STOP.
Yes, I acknowledge white people “rule” the world and it’s not fair, and there is a lot of racism in everyday life and they are a lot of people like that, actually, but that doesnt mean you get to judge me by my race…Cause that’s racism.
Yes, I acknowledge there are a lot of misogynistic bastards, and there is a lot of sexism in everyday life, but I won’t stand by and watch you male shame my boyfriend or my many male friends because of their gender…Cause that’s sexism.
Yes, I acknowledge there is homophobia and transphobia in every corner, but I won’t shut up and allow you to shame me because I’m cisgender and straight…Cause that’s cisphobia.
If, for example,
1. Racism is assuming because you are black you play basketball or because you are asian you are good at math
2. Sexism is assuming because you are a woman you are weak
3. Homophobia is assuming you are “girly” (gays) or a butch (lesbians)
4. Transphobia is assuming you want to change your gender cause you were abused as a child
Then I’m sorry, but if you ASSUME that because I’m white and cis I’m a racist and a homophobic and a transphobic, you just became the same thing you are fighting.
And if because I’m white and cis you assume that I don’t care about racism, homophobia and transphobia…You just don’t know me at all.
