making fun of privileged groups becoming the cool counter-culture thing to do. Like there’s this perception that if we make fun of or bash white, straight, male, cis, etc. people, we’re railing against the mainstream that has institutionalized that privilege. And we do need to call out bullshit when we see it. But how we use language is important. When we say ‘this group of people sucks’ we’re ignoring all the allies of maligned groups that are in that group.
Even though no one who is part of a privilege group is 100% innocent, there are still people within those groups who are trying to make things better for underprivileged groups. Anger at injustice is important and valid and I certainly don’t want to censor anyone. But making people with privilege into the enemy through the wording we choose to use is not going help unite people, it will only divide.
I say this as someone belonging to both privileged and underprivileged groups, but this is mostly in response to hearing people bash entire groups that I am not part of, but have loved ones who are part of (particularly men and millennials). These are just some thoughts, if you think I’m an idiot for saying this, please inform me on why. I’m totally open to learning.
