I keep seeing SWM types going “I thought the USA was better.”
Well it is in many ways, but it it is privilege that blinds people to how much the USA shits on people who are further away from the apex of SWM privilege.
Many men still don’t really get the point of #yesallwomen.
Many white people don’t understand the history related to #blacklivesmatter.
Many straight people don’t understand what it’s like to denied the right to love.
And so on for the other privileges.
If you do not understand how much it sucks to be treated poorly for being nonSWM, then you probably are surprised by how awful the USA can be. But seeing the risk to your own privileged asses may wake you up to the dangers.
How the mighty treat the less powerful, that is how they want to treat you.
