I got called “harsh” today because I wasn’t being patient with a homophobic, rape sympathising, sexist, ableist, awful awful human being. Like i’m not here to molly coddle your ignorance even after i’ve rationally and calmly presented a bunch of facts.
I just don’t understand. Oppressors don’t need defending, so why are people so quick to do it? Do they think the oppressed, want to be discriminated against?
