One thing I really despise is when someone straightens my hair, covers me with every type of makeup they can find, and puts me in really feminine clothing and then tells me, “Oh wow, you really clean up nicely.”

I don’t mind a bit of dress up, but when you erase everything that makes me comfortable in my own skin and then say you’re surprised I look nice?

Well damn.

That fucking hurts.

Filed under personal the only group that really does this to me is you guessed it white people

Anonymous asked: why is "hate breeds more hate" a bad thing to say?


Oh so many reasons.

1) it equates the anger of the oppressed to the hate of their oppressors.
2) it blames oppressed groups for their oppression. Bigotry doesn’t exist because people hate bigots. It exists because oppressed people oppose it. It exists because of bigots and because of privileged folks being complicit or tacitly condoning systems of oppression.
3) it’s fundamentally untrue. Hatred of oppression doesn’t lead to more hatred; it leads to progress.
4) it is used to attack any attempt by oppressed people to obtain liberation. Point out that something or someone is repulsively racist and all of a sudden you’re “breeding more hate”.

It’s a fundamental misrepresentation of reality that blames victims and excuses fucked up behavior.
