The most dangerous thing society teaches boys and men, especially white boys and men, is that their emotions are objective logic and reason and that anyone who disagrees is being irrational.

Playboy’s catcall flowchart.
I’m reblogging Playboy. Somebody stop me.
No. Don’t stop. This is perfect
the cat one though
"Have you both [agreed] to shout sexually suggestive comments to each other in public"
It never has.
This is a concept most of tumblr can’t wrap their head around.
Yeaha, no, you ain’t getting it. This post perpetuates the idea that victims and survivors should remain silent to the systemic issues of the world/cultures. What people are perceiving as hatred when they reblog this load of shit is generally speaking and majority speaking, people hating on the negative reactions to systemic power and injustices.
Lets go over some basic fucking examples of why you need to stop sharing this post as if it fucking means anything.
A black person saying “fuck white cops! Fuckin’ pigs!” is not the same as a white person hating on a black person. Why? Because cops have been proven time and time again of racism that ends lives in a manner in which white people do not face.
Nicki Minaj saying in her latest song, Anaconda, "Fuck the skinny bitches, Fuck the skinny bitches in the club" is absolutely nothing since you can literally turn off that song, open any magazine, look at any billboard or walk into any mainstream fashion store and see thin is idolised, and “fat” is looked down upon. Skinny shaming does happen and it isn’t cool, but don’t pretend it is on par or systemic. Just like hating on whites, hating on skinny people ain’t nothin’ compared to the systemic hatred of fat or overweight people.
A Woman or girl saying ”Egh, I got cat called again on my way to school this morning, I fucking hate men.” is not on par with the cat calling itself or the manner in which women are hated upon, caused by the patriarchy. So don’t act like it is even in the same ball park.
A lesbian saying “fuck straight people, constantly fucking invading gay clubs, fuck off!” is not on par with a straight person hating on a lesbian, gay man, or any other sexual orientation because it does not hold systemic power. Gay clubs exist because they were safe spaces. As straight people, you literally have 99% of the rest of the planet to kiss, dance, and hook up without gay people attacking you purely for your sexual orientation. So cut that bullshit.
Hate towards cis people is quite literally “fuck those cis people, they are the FUCKING REASON WE DIE.” I shouldn’t have to expand further on this. Quit your whining because some trans person called you a fucking cis-gender fuckwit. As if that’s even close to the systemic hatred trans people face daily.
Yes, hate won’t end hate. No shit, Sherlock. But the hate you’re fucking complaining about is most often venting and retaliation to actual, system ingrained, life-in-danger hatred. If you’re on the receiving end of someone going off at you it is because you’ve done or said something that encourages, or promotes power in the system wide hatred of these groups of people and that person has finally had enough and is biting the fuck back.
Don’t act as if getting murdered, lynched, raped, beaten, bullied, threatened like the other groups of people have had to face and on GOVERNMENT LEVEL is anything like the hatred you think you’re getting for being white, skinny, male, straight, or cis.
Hate won’t end hate, but talking nicely to your oppressors sure hasn’t worked throughout history. Stop acting as if getting offended sometimes is the same as systemic oppression. It ain’t.

I was angry until i read the tweets
Many white people may never truly understand why incidents like the Michael Brown shooting infuriate blacks and other people of color — even when it’s clear that race plays a large, looming role in how the situation snowballed to the 18-year-old’s death.
This is in part because white people can move through daily life without constantly thinking about how their race will be perceived. Part of having white privilege is the freedom from worrying about racism, a freedom their black counterparts have never known. But it gives black people a unique yet challenging perspective by which they navigate the world.
