men don’t get to decide what is misogynistic

straight people don’t get to decide what it homophobic

cis people don’t get to decide what is transphobic

white people don’t get to decide what is racist

people in positions of power

don’t get to decide what is considered oppression

that’s how we move backwards, not forwards

I also want to add that any one example of any disprivileged class doesn’t get to decide what is or is not oppressive for their entire whole— especially intersectionally.

One “black friend” doesn’t get to validate a comment as “not racist.”

Cis gay people don’t get to define what’s “not homophobic” for trans gay people.

One neurodivergent person seeming “normal” doesn’t mean that others should be expected to come across in a way that NT people find agreeable.

A bisexual man doesn’t get to co-opt a discussion primarily about problems bisexual women face.

One girl being okay with being called a slut doesn’t mean slut shaming isn’t a thing.

One disabled person talking about “overcoming” their condition doesn’t make the ongoing struggle of other disabled people to fit into an ableist society less valid.

Trans men don’t get to ignore transmisogyny in favor of general “transphobia” when trans women are concerned.

These are ongoing discussions, with multiple communities involved, and we’re not weapons against each other, just as people with more privilege can’t invalidate the whole thing with their power.

hey what if someone invented a machine that allowed women to transfer their pregnancies to men and then the government passed a law that if a woman didn’t want to have a baby the biological father was required to carry it how fast do you think birth control would stop being an issue
