I love it when cats have this reaction to things, it’s just like, “HUMAN, EXPLAIN THIS BULLSHIT.”

WHOOPS WHAT HAPPENED
And in fact, saying something like that erases the oppression she is actually experiencing, right now.
It compounds it.
It prevents anything from being done about it.
It says, “this is just an *isolated incident*, it could happen to *anyone*.”
It erases the fact that gay people, especially gay youth, are being systematically discriminated against.
In fact, saying “I don’t see you as gay” is victim-blaming, because it implies that there’s something wrong with this girl specifically, because otherwise, why would she be treated like this? You know, other than overwhelming hate for gay people supported by institutions, like education (she was expelled) AND law enforcement (charged with a felony), which was INSTIGATED by the individual PREJUDICE of her girlfriend’s parents?
I think it’s fairly easy to see that when this young white girl is experiencing systematic oppression because she is gay, erasing her identity HARMS instead of HELPING.
So, can someone please tell me WHY this is not understood when people of color, especially Black people, face systematic oppression, persecution, beatings, false arrests, and murder from police, face discrimination and devaluation in the job market and higher education, financial disenfranchisement, school closures, housing discrimination, hate crimes, and imprisonment at an alarming level?
Why then, is it NEVER about race?
Why is it always ANYTHING BUT their race?
Why is it that this high school student, who was ALSO expelled and charged with a felony (for doing a science experiment), has had HER race constantly erased from media coverage of the situation? From the story:
Kiera Wilmot’s story raises a series of troubling questions. This could happen to any student. Classmates, the Principal and the student herself clarified this was no act of malevolence, but school administrators and law enforcement pursued charges to ensure “safety and security”. Have this nation’s schools become such mindless, bureaucratic prisons that all reason is forfeit?
Happily, the charges were dropped after internet outrage and shaming for the school and law enforcement in that area made it clear that trying to charge a 16 year old doing a science experiment AS AN ADULT is unacceptable.
But it “has nothing to do with race?”
In 2009, 64 percent of juveniles statewide prosecuted as adults were African Americans, nearly double the 2001 level of 36 percent. Black youth make up 15 percent of the state’s population between 10 and 17 that falls under the jurisdiction of juvenile courts.
Missouri has been prosecuting an increasingly disproportionate number of African-American juveniles in adult courts, despite an unusual state law that requires judges to consider racial disparity when deciding whether to transfer such cases.
Removing someone’s marginalized status from articles, media coverage, and discussion compounds and perpetuates their oppression.
It prevents anything from being DONE about it.
It erases people’s experiences and invalidates their frustration and pain.
“We’re all human” doesn’t make oppression go away.
It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
I mean, it’s just true.
i really like that people are drawing these now, and this one was really creeping me out.
it sorta looks like something you’d see in the Shin Megami Tensei series
