Yeah, i don’t normally make shit like this, but I feel like this needed to be said.
Because why is it okay to hate the majority on this website, but the minute someone says something about a minority (which is just as wrong), they’re bombarded by so much hate that they often delete their blogs?
Let’s look at ourselves, guys. Hating an entire group for the actions of a few, or for something that they literally cannot help (i.e. the color of their skin), isn’t helping anything, and is pushing away the equality that we often say we want so desperately.
I’m going to reblog this everyday
What I’ve been trying to say all along.
Oh my fucking god. Are you serious? What don’t you people get about this? Being mistrustful of a certain group of people based on oppression you’ve suffered WILL NEVER BE on the same level as oppression. If you can really blame someone who’s been abused for hating their abuser, you need to fuck off immediately. So you “reblog this everyday” if you want to, but it doesn’t justify you being a butthurt walking privilege.
This is what I got from this:
"Waahh, I’m too lazy and stupid to see that there’s a difference between individuals and a group! Clearly an entire group of people with traits they have no control over all want to get me! Waaahh!"
Jesus Christ, grow the fuck up. You know what would be “hating their abuser?” HATING THE SPECIFIC PEOPLE WHO ABUSED THEM, NOT SOMEONE WHO KINDA LOOKS LIKE/HAS VAGUELY SIMILAR TRAITS.
Guess what, I’m gay and POC, I’ve been the target of plenty of homophobia and racism. I’ve had white people tell me all kinds of fucked up stuff, I’ve been punched in the face for being gay and called a stupid little faggot.
You know what I did? I hated the fuck out of them. I hated the fuck out of the people who did those things to me. I didn’t go, “Oh hey, the person who just punched me for my sexuality is straight, CLEARLY ALL STRAIGHT PEOPLE HATE GAYS OLOLOLOL,” I made a goddamn distinction, because that’s what people with any level of intelligence would do.
I will absolutely blame someone for being that stupid, especially if they’re old enough to think for themselves. I have zero sympathy for assholes, regardless of what happened to them or their motivations. Whether or not it was because something happened to you, you are still making the conscious decision to be a fuckhead to someone who did nothing to deserve it other than be born a certain way.
