-Canticle of Threnodies 8:13 (source)
This lady is walking her dog and the dog has a water dish in its mouth. The dog drops the dish, drinks for a second, the picks up the dish and keeps walking.
I still buy bottled water. This dog has its shit more together than I do.
the reason I’ve stopped saying “most men/some white people/many straight people do X oppressive activity” is because if you’re a member of those groups, I want you to sit there and think, “do I do X? am I a part of that? am I an active part of the problem?”
if I say that only most or some people in those groups participates in X, that’s letting you off the hook! that means that you’re not asked to think about your actions and choices!
and besides, even if you yourself aren’t doing X, chances are you know at least five people who do. and I want you to think about them too.
