STOP WHITE PEOPLE 2K14
Aw fuck it, I’mma say it.
White feminists need to understand that not all men are sexualized in a way that wholly benefits them. That is something exclusive to white men point blank period.

So when you’re talking about the sexualization of men giving men power, you need to be specific about which group of men you’re talking about.

Me: No, a preference is preferring broccoli to asparagus. You can say that because asparagus will always taste the same, even when prepared differently.
Me: And we’re not always the same at all. There are hundreds of millions of us and we’re each completely different from the next. If an employer said not hiring Black people was a preference would you agree?
Him: No, but that’s based on stereotypes.
Me: … And what is yours based on, facts?"
Oh, bitch. Read down!
