I will write a thread about this soon but for now I’m too enraged to say more: every white American woman watching the war vs Christine Blasey Ford must understand that all the white & blonde privilege you have - and I don’t care how you vote - will not save you from patriarchy.
You cannot be a more “perfect victim” than Christine Blasey Ford and still they will do all they can to destroy her. Imagine if she was Black. Or poor. Or disabled. Or so many other things.
And don’t send me #NotAllWhiteWomen. Where the fuck have you all been?Trump made you angry?Where the fuck were you before?You’re angry now?White women think their anger is a revolution when in fact they’re just catching up with the revolution of rage the rest of us began ages ago

I lost over 100 followers this week standing up for WOC being attacked by white women.
I'm sorry to have lost them because it means those folks missed the point.
White people have an obligation to POC in America because of the damage #racism inflicts even if we aren't #racist.
The hardest words in any language are "I'm sorry."
Acknowledging our flaws goes against ego.
But it's essential.
I know I am a strong person with strong Socialist politics.
I know I can be intense.
But I am a fiundamentally kind person who doesn't want to hurt people.
At times I know I <have> hurt people--we all have.
And that is my point: If people tell you you have hurt them, listen.
I don't mean casual snark, but hurt.
Say you are sorry.
Repentance is under-utilized and under-valued, and that's not just my Catholicism talking.

THIS is key. All these 911 calls have been @ DISCOMFORT, not actual fear. And white ppl in general don’t like to feel uncomfortable, but WW especially feel it’s an absolute right. Asking for managers, bursting out in tears, calling 911... this is all @ them not feeling centered.
Somewhere along the lines WW became the self-appointed arbiters of public behavior (woman sleeping in common area). They insert themselves in situations that don’t involve them (the men BBQ’ing LEGALLY), ignore personal space & agency (BW didn’t smile, IM didn’t answer questions)
It is their job, somehow, to ensure that life is functioning by their very specific sets of rules & parameters.
Call them on overstepping, victimizing, bullying, harrassing, and they immediately become victims. You ever see how a middle aged WW acts when police show up for HER?
