and I was so fucking pleased by the ignorance of their statement that I started laughing. And I just kept laughing. Bulged-eyes laughter. Uneven savage laughter. I tried to explain the difference between racism and prejudiced thinking but I was too fucking amused. They should know better by now.
Then another one of my roommates was like, “hey man racism refers to systematic oppression. You just mean she’s prejudiced and biased.”
And I said, “I don’t trust white people or men as a whole. The people who get all the power are inherently gonna be dicks.”
And just…get the fuck outta my face. The day I can systematically oppress a guy who argues that the way a girl’s ass looks is a reason to holla at her and make her feel unsafe, I am going to do it. Just for a day so he can see what it’s like.
