i get concerned when western south asian ppl tend to gloss over patriarchal standards in our culture just to avoid racism/stereotypes against us from other westerners.
yes, it is frustrating to deal with these people who think that their country is more ~progressive~ & how they look at us as inferior, but…? completely dismissing misogyny and putting women who suffer in the global south and in our own families in the front lines? i think it is very inconsiderate, so please let’s not. :( i think there are better ways to approach/handle this issue.
