this is literally the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen
I have to assume that most of these notes are calling the image out on its ridiculous, moronic bullshit because otherwise … whattttt the fuck
that’s racism and that’s sexism because when you enslave or marginalise or oppress a group of people throughout the entirety of human history because of their race or because of their gender … it’s because of their race or their gender
it’s not “being unkind” when white people tell black people that they’re worthless it’s part of a pattern that has been going on for like thousands of years where white people decided that black people were an entirely other species that they could enslave and kill and rape because they basically thought they WEREN’T human beings and woah guess what, that kind of shit doesn’t just go away, the effects of racism are still everywhere you look
you don’t get to suddenly decide that racism and sexism are over when they’re very clearly not over
… as demonstrated by this image promoting racism and sexism
What this is trying to convey, and what you are saying, are two different things. What it’s trying to say, is that it shouldn’t be okay to talk to anyone like that. We need to stop thinking of people of different race as different. They are just as human as we are. That is half the problem when it comes to racism, we get overly defensive. If I tell you, as a white female, my ‘opinion’ on you, it wouldn’t be considered a massive problem. However, if I’m male and you’re black, now it’s a problem? For me to say the exact same thing I said before? Whether I’m the same or different shouldn’t matter. If I say something insulting, you should find it insulting. It’s like, the majority’s not allowed to say anything mean to the minority. But the minority can say all the crap about the majority they want, because what? they deserve it? I don’t understand
The second image, of a boy saying girls are stupid, an a girl saying boys are stupid. Well, if they really meant it as an insult, they’re both being sexist. But if they’re just joking around about how, yes, they are different, and they find that funny (perhaps a better way of putting it is “heh, girls are weird”) that, needs to be a case by case assessment. But the point is, it shouldn’t matter if a girl says it to a boy, or if a boy says it to a girl, It should be just as insulting/not either way.
yes, it sucks that we did treat people differently, and still often do because they are ‘different’, and that is exactly what this is trying to say. In an ideal world maybe we will treat everyone in the same way we treat every other human being.
just a thought, maybe read it, and read the image again, and think.
