Michelle Bachman (“the gay community is bullying the American people”) is a quintessential example of a privileged group asserting that they are in, fact, the ones suffering from oppression after those who are marginalized, dismissed, and ignored begin to claim the rights they have been denied.
This trope is old; too familiar. And while it has been tried many times, it has never been, and will never be, acceptable to declare yourself a victim of groups who have been systematically, intentionally harmed.
Uhh, just in 1942? I’m pretty sure this is still the case…
If you’re against feminism as a movement because of it’s tendencies to exclude trans* women and WOC, that’s totally legitimate.
But if you’re against it because you think it’s wrong to focus on women’s equality because it “ignores the men” then you let me come live in your universe where men are in need of having their rights protected because I’d like to see that shit.
I love the truth that lives on tumblr.
