this is why cultural appropriation is fucking horrible. You take our culture, you take our labor, you take our spirituality BUT you don’t want us, our brown bodies.
fuck you, you don’t deserve anything.
No, you are not appreciating my culture when at the same time You are deporting us and oppressing us.
A guy who says “not all men” actually provides a very good microcosm of patriarchy. The discussion is not about him (by his own explicit admission!) but because it is not about him, he (as a man who has been raised to believe everything is/should be about him) interjects and makes it about him.
PSA: Big corporations putting feel good feminist messages in their advertisements wont result in women’s liberation as much as it will result in goading liberal minded folks to buy more shampoo or whatever. There’s no point in fawning over these commercials.
