Because gay isn’t only 17 year old white kids that come from middle to upper class homes.

White women need to deal with the fact that most of you voted for Trump. It’s the not the job of black women or any marginalised and oppressed person to take responsibility for the actions of their oppressor or to educate their oppressor.
If you are not black, then you cannot tell black people what it is like to be black. It’s that simple. You are not an expert on black people. You do not know more about being black than black people do.
I’m seeing calls for people to defend Taylor swift and again seeing Taylor swift used to degrade other women who don’t fit the respectable feminist image. As a black woman I don’t owe her shit nor does anyone else in the name of feminism.
