Things I Find Idiotic: Anti-feminists, “(group of people)-phobics”, and other hateful bigots

I was going to say “you know who you are”, but you actually don’t. You’re so immersed in your own privilege that you don’t realize that you ARE the problem.

If you want to be a part of a community, treat the other community members like human beings. All of them. Ask, listen, think.

Or demand, ignore, and continue in your willful ignorance. And lose community members or be rejected from the community yourself.

You’re free to make that choice. And others are entirely free to remind you of your privilege, call you out on your bad behaviour, and yes, even outright reject you from their community. Your actions are not without consequence. Act wisely.
