Carefully notice the lack of logical thinking here. She’s not even following the line of questioning.
When privilege is in question, no matter how ignorant or intelligent a person is, they tend to retreat to illogical arguments that are easily refuted and they kinda resemble toddlers, except I actually like toddlers and toddlers make more sense.
And honestly, many White women would not tolerate such ridiculous arguments, lack of empathy and self-centeredness ("why bring up race if it’s not a problem for you?") if the question was gender and a White man posed this foolishness to them. They wouldn’t tolerate it. They would easily expose the ignorance. But magically when privilege (in this case White privilege) is in question, all bets are off.
The last GIF explains my life in so many ways… *rolls eyes*
The weirdest thing is that though this is from a satirical show (The Daily Show) and meant to discuss racism with humor, these are the real answers that most Whites give daily, so I couldn’t really laugh this time. I just felt tired.
the perils of trying to communicate this to white people in debates. in the many debates I’ve had the chance of witnessing, race comes up about 80% of the time, when discussing this in a diverse setting. and for whites, sometimes their mindset is ‘oh, why are they pulling the race card.’ but for blacks it’s, ‘understand that purely based off of what I look like, I will experience something totally different, give me the chance to explain.’
this always makes me cringe

so yeah this is where all the magic happens

"go suck a dick" is the dumbest line of negativity because I see nothing negative about sucking a dick
You’re clearly a guy

"oh, hey what are you reading?"

"what’s it about?"
A woman is only vulnerable when her nail polish is drying, and even then she can still pull a trigger.
why does this make me feel mad
Because he’s considered powerful, and she’s considered a whore.
growing up is watching your younger sibling get taller and taller until they finally surpass you until you’re left a diminished pride and memories of when you were the supreme sibling

I’m about to cry. My 60 year old mother watched a netflix documentary and only just now found out she’s asexual. I’ve been trying to figure out how to bring up this idea to her for years. I am so glad to hear her, she’s so happy and saying “there really is nothing wrong with me!” I didn’t realize it wore on her like that. God bless the internet.
