Aw fuck it, I’mma say it.
White feminists need to understand that not all men are sexualized in a way that wholly benefits them. That is something exclusive to white men point blank period.
Because MOC are sexualized in ways that remove their agency and their humanity, and most times this is perpetrated by both white women and white men.
So when you’re talking about the sexualization of men giving men power, you need to be specific about which group of men you’re talking about.

"If you blame Native American communities for their poverty, remember that the entire continent was stolen from them.
If you blame Black American communities for their relative poverty, remember that Black Americans were stolen from a continent, trafficked, and enslaved for nearly 300 years.
Tell me again about how your family ‘started from nothing’ when they immigrated. Didn’t they start from whiteness? Seems like a pretty good start.
The American Dream required dual genocides, but tell me again about fairness and equal opportunity. Tell me about democracy, modeled after the Iroquois Confederacy. Tell me your proud heritage, and I will show you the violence that made it so."

Keynote Speaker for LGBTQ History Month at Dartmouth, on September 30, 2013, where quote is from.
Important. Especially the phrase “dual genocides.” Because clearly using Black bodies as tools to rebuild stolen and settled land from Native people who are dehumanized and killed via genocide as rationalized by the State makes the relationship between dehumanized stolen bodies without structural power on stolen land a different one from White bodies with structural power occupying land that is not theirs.

why you don't see a lot of "nice" SJ bloggers: →
- people take advantage of your niceness to exploit you as a “source” of information - bombarding you with questions/requests with no respect for your boundaries/limitations
- give you backhanded compliments on your niceness at the expense of less nice “unreasonable”…
"I don’t hate any race of people, and it pains me to wake up to other young people being misled to believe I do. I am for unity and equality."

Not to mention she raps with an American Southern accent and uses AAVE and she’s an Australian.
Did Facebook's Graffiti Artist Admit To Sexual Assault On His Podcast? →
Trigger warning for rape and sexual assault.
David Choe jokingly admits to being a “successful rapist”.
"It’s dangerous and it’s super self destructive. I’m at a place and there’s potential for a lawsuit…and she has given me no signs that she’s into me or that this is appropriate behavior. In my head I go "Do you care if I jerk off right now?" and it sounds so creepy in my head that I go I can’t say that out loud … So I go back to the chill method of you never ask first, you just do it, get in trouble and then pay the price later."
"…So I just start jerking off. So then her hands gets off my leg and she just stops … I go "Look I’m sorry I can’t help myself — can you just pretend like I’m not doing this and you continue with the massage?" And she’s like "All right" and she does … I’m like "Can I touch your butt?" and I reach out and touch her butt and she pulls away. She doesn’t want me to touch her butt."
"… I say "Kiss it a little," she says "No, all the massage oil is on it" and I take the back of her head and I push it down on my d**k and she doesn’t do it. And I say "Open your mouth, open your mouth," and she does it and I start facef**king her."
Rape culture is literally admitting to raping somebody and publicizing it online because you’re that sure nothing will happen to you — and nothing does.
And since he was around his peers they won’t call him out on it. Plus, he’s misogynistic about Korean women.
