Derailing for Dummies and The Privilege of Politeness

Here are two great articles:

1. Derailing for Dummies.

2. The Privilige of Politeness.

Thanks to subtlecluster for making me aware of these articles and for their succinct explanation of them.

“read them. not that i agree 100% with all therein, but they’re important pieces.

some insight into why people in marginalized groups might not want to hold your hand, be nice, coddle you, and educate you about all the ways in which they are fucked over when you make an insensitive comment, hold a fucked up view, or whatever.

hint: sometimes WE ARE JUST FUCKING TIRED OF DEALING WITH THAT SHIT CONSTANTLY.”
