Anonymous said: Your comparison of men to black people in that "gradually prove" post isn't right. If anything, it's racist to make the comparison. The only reason the black crime stereotype holds up is socio-economically. Statistically though, men in ANY bracket on the economic ladder can be sexist because sexism transcends the stereotypes of race. In other words, what you basically said is, "Not all men." You've become one of those guys. And frankly, your response is bullshit.
I don’t understand how distrusting men because some men are rapists is different than distrusting black people because some black people are criminals. I’m not trying to be snarky, I just genuinely do not get it.
I am perfectly willing to try to understand. It’s something that’s always bothered me. Do racism and sexism come from completely separate sources? Are they perpetuated by completely different ideas? Because they both seem to be the same kind of ignorance: the suggestion that one race is inherently better than another sounds pretty similar to the suggestion that one sex is inherently better than another. Are those sources and the problems they create so different that it is completely okay to say “I don’t like men” but completely not okay to say “I don’t like black men”?
I genuinely am interested in the answer to these questions, because I am honestly interested in understanding. No bullshit. So if you have an explanation for me, send it in! I’d love to hear it.
Black people suffer constantly from stereotypes about them. Socially, politically, intellectually, economically, and mortally.
I don’t see that that is true of men. Sporadically? Sure thing. Systemically? No.
But then your argument is not “don’t stereotype people because stereotyping is wrong”, it’s “stereotype some people as long as the stereotypes aren’t that bad”.
Or maybe your argument is “don’t stereotype people who aren’t well off”. You’d be absolutely correct in saying that the average black person has it way worse than the average white person in this country. But what about an Asian-American? They’re among the most successful people in America; is it okay to stereotype them, but not okay to stereotype black people or latino people because the latter demographics have it worse?
Or maybe your argument is “don’t stereotype people who aren’t in power”. I will definitely agree that white people have most of the power in this country…but not all of it. Is it okay to stereotype Obama? He’s doing pretty damn well for himself, leader of the free world and all…would it be okay to stereotype him? If Clinton becomes president, would it be okay to stereotype her?
Or maybe your argument is “don’t stereotype people who have had a tougher history”. Does that mean that stereotyping those who are underprivileged today will become okay as soon as they get a little privilege for themselves? If we create a perfectly equal society (let your imagination run wild), will it be okay to stereotype everyone? Or no one?
Is it really acceptible to distrust a black man for being a man but not for being black? What if the particular stereotype in question is specifically about black men? Is it okay because it’s a “man” stereotype or not okay because it’s a “black” stereotype?
My point with all of this (I swear I have one) is that discrimination gets really confusing if you make some of it okay but some of not not okay. And it gets even more confusing if you can sometimes discriminate and also claim the moral high ground. If I saw more posts like “yeah I discriminate, I know you don’t like it and I know it makes me evil, but fuck it, I’m going to do it anyway because I feel that it is a necessary evil, and here is why” I would honestly be proud. But I never see that.

It’s literally always dudes that look like this. Really grossly overweight and awkward wearing dumb video game related clothing
Nice generalities, friend :-)
There are a lot of people that consider themselves anti-feminist. It’d be great if silly people such as yourself didn’t generalize an entire demographic of people :-)
