-You cannot be sexist toward men. Sexism is based on a system of oppression. You CAN be discriminatory, rude, inconsiderate, and/or prejudiced against men but you CANNOT be sexist toward them.

-You cannot be racist towards white people. Racism is based on a system of oppression. You CAN be discriminatory, rude, inconsiderate, and/or prejudiced against white people but you CANNOT be racist toward them.

This is not difficult.

I have a question for caffeinatedfeminist or anyone else who cares.

I should be applying the principle of charity here, but I fail even then, because when I apply the strong definitions of sexism I know, the first sentence is false. Discrimination against men based on their gender is possible. Just ineffective. And by effectiveness, I mean broad in reach or impact: The careers of women have frequently been cut short because they were women. Men frequently are discouraged from entering female toilets. I’d say these are some common instances people in the anglophone world can turn to. Ohnomens the searing injustice. 

A belief that one gender is inherently superior ignores the niggling distinction between the obvious categories of comparison. Saying women are better than men is possible. Just not qualifiable for most of the time. So on and so forth for other well-defined sexisms.

I don’t like using weakly defined sexisms or single-use definitions because then I can’t form a logical argument and those are nice after years of being shouted down by unassuming misogynists who found a single counter-example and think that reason enough to ignore feminism. My issue with the second paragraph is analogous.

But caffeinatedfeminist is pretty smart and probably knew this but chose not to cave in to the pedantic part of her brain where evil little unaesthetic unpoetic sprites like me live, so I’m wondering what definition she used, or, what her reasoning was — was it to create a quotable post emphasising ~message~ over fact to get a point across? tia

As it is I’m just parsing it as “You cannot effectively be racist towards white people. The whole fucking world is built around them. You can mildly inconvenience them and make them feel an unwanted twinge of guilt if they forget to ignore you, but if they go out of hearing distance from you suddenly they’re in a big planet-shaped safe space full of mechanisms, memes and hierarchies designed to remind them they’re on top. They really appreciate not ever having to acknowledge this and it is holding the whole of humanity back.”.

This is difficult for me. #autisticprivilege #whitemansburden
