While I have problems with your discussion of race, I'll focus on misogyny because you're complaining that no one is. I'm a woman, so let's get that out of the way. I take issue with the fact that you use words like "bitch" and "fuck" but claim to be a feminist. Those words are almost as demeaning to women as the n word is to black people (not on the same level I realize but still). If you don't believe that's true, then that is another issue. But really, you seem hypocritical and callous.
I wasn’t complaining that no one was focusing on it. I was laughing over the fact that it’s apparently okay for me to point out homophobia and misogyny, but pointing out racism is worthy of all kinds of harassment. And I’m a woman… I’m allowed to reclaim “bitch” if I would like to, but I apologize for offending you. Just as I’m allowed to reclaim the n word, as a Black person (specifically, a Black cis female.)
And I’m not a feminist. I never said I was a feminist. In fact, what I’ve said before is fuck feminism. Because the lack of intersectionality within feminist circles, the transphobia, and the very clear erasure and appropriation of the struggles of women who are also of color, makes me sick. But that’s another topic for another day.
Also, I’m failing to see how “fuck” is offensive in regards to feminism.
On the “hypocritical and callous.” Because I get tired of dealing with ignorant people throwing shit at me and stop being nice about it? You should be familiar with this concept: I’m not going to be nice to people who insist on shitting on me. If someone continuously kicks you in the face, you don’t get to be surprised or offended or take issue when they finally take a swing at you to defend themselves.
If that makes me callous to you, then that’s on you~ But until you deal with the bullshit from anons that I deal with, you might wanna try refraining from telling me how callous I am. Because fuck being nice to anons who will continually deny their privilege while saying privileged, offensive shit.
And how am I hypocritical? Because I said white people and non-Black PoC can’t use the n-word? Because I swear to god, if that’s the reason, then don’t even bother trying to have this dialogue with me. :|
Edit: Actually, no. I take back that apology for offending you with the word “bitch” and “fuck.” You don’t get to dictate how I fight back against my oppression. And if I hurt your feelings, you’ll forgive me, because I’m busy trying to fight off white supremacist assholes who are trying to manipulate my emotions.
