Fighting fire with fire, becoming the percieved enemy in order to defeat them, doing onto others what they have unjustifiably done onto you — it is the very definition of hypocrisy. It impies not that you think what they’re doing is wrong, but that you pnly think it’s wrong when done to you specifically — and that only makes you selfish.
If sexism is wrong, it shouldn’t matter what sex is doing it. If racism is wrong, it doesn’t matter what race is doing it.
Its as simple as that.
If you whine about kids getting participation trophies in school for games they didn’t win, realize that Confederate statues are just really big participation trophies for a war you fucking lost.
If you need to run away to a safe space when something someone says “triggers” you, think twice before you point your finger at those who want to build a big, dumb wall to beef up their illusions of a nationwide “safe space” because immigrants trigger them.
If you believe in a patriarchy and that men are inherently toxic and oppress women, who should now lead the way for the species and push down the dong-bearing, at the very least don’t pretend that you’re fighting for equality. Be self aware. You’re a sexist, plain and simple.
The aim should be empathy and fairness and respect for individual liberty. And if you fight, you fight on that basis and don’t sacrifice your fucking principals.
Anything less and your percieved enemy has won the war by means of something akin to spirit possession. And given the state of the political climate, I’d say we, as a population, are largely possessed.
