y’all making these posts on here like they can see them



I won’t preface or clarify any statement I make with “some men” instead of “men”.

It’s too many men, and it’s not enough men, but it’s always men.

I don’t need to explain or justify myself, because those people of quality I hope to reach know and understand who I am talking about. I’m not worried about male readers reading this post and thinking I’m “attacking” them.

If a man follows my blog and wants to educate himself, he will either A.) Understand that he does not personally do those things, but will recognize the importance of the issue, or B.) He’ll realize he has participated in these subtle but sure acts of violence, and will hopefully begin to rethink/change his ways.

I want men to read my blog, but I won’t coddle the privileged. I won’t ignore the problem in hopes of “playing nice” and being a “friendly feminist”.

Note: For the white man who will inevitably ask me how I feel when PoC say “White people” instead of “Some white people”, I say: I feel great about it. Because it is white people.

Speaking out does not equal hate.

Refusing to be attacked does not make one an instigator.
