the reason oppressed groups say “___ are awful” instead of “some ___ are awful” is because including the word “some” allows individuals of that group to detach themselves from the problem and shuck the blame off and say “well they arent really talking about me so i can ignore their opinions”, whereas stating that an entire group of oppressors is awful makes the individual think whether or not theyre included in the awfulness of that group and makes them consider their actions so thats why people say “men are awful” or “white people are awful” and if you take it personally you’re getting angry at the wrong people
no, it’s because the people who say all of group x is awful because of whatever reason ARE part of the problem. they are the thing they claim to hate so much, blindly discriminating against an entire group of people based on either the actions of a few people, a single individual, or the ever-popular i saw/read/heard somewhere that someone did a thing.
it makes them literally no better than the people they claim to be fighting against. they are prejudiced liars.
You wouldn’t, would you?

That what you get when you put ya nose in places that it doesn’t belong. Haha!

"And what do we say to death?"
Not Iambic….Do Not Accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
- Macklemore, “Thrift Shoppe”
*Crying with laughter*
ITS IN IAMBIC PENTAMETER. SWEET JESUS THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE THING.
THIS IS THE MOST BRILLIANT POSY I HAVE EVER SEEN.
Guys, that’s not only Iambic, that’s a fucking sonnet. *claps*
Grammatically correct for the period and a couple of references to Shakespeare’s actual works.
I’m sincerely impressed.
JUST A REMINDER THAT SHAKESPEARE DIDNT ONLY WRITE IN IAMBIC PENTAMETER BUT THAT ASIDE HOLY CRAP THERE ARE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE HOW AMAZING THIS IS
