since some have forgotten

biyuti:

how this whole oppression thing actually works

the default for white people is racist

the default for cis people is transmisogynist

the default for men is sexist

the default for able people is ableist

I’m sure you are seeing the pattern by now

these defaults are what happen when you grow up in a society with
institutional oppression. the are literally unavoidable.

we must all unlearn these things

(the difference between people who experience an oppression vs. those who
do not experience it is the target: self or other.)

do not now or ever again ask for proof that a white person is racist.

you want me to think they aren’t racist?

show me the proof that they are anti-racist
