If you’ve decided your healing is dependent on other people acknowledging their faults you’ll still be waiting in your grave.
Don't let academic language fool you into thinking people are saying anything of worth.
I identify as exhausted
The fixation with your identity limits your identity.
The difference between those who are constantly offended and those who are never offended, is not ‘privilege and power’ but dignity and detachment.
People think to be radical is to be confrontational, hostile, and angry when what is truly counterculture is understanding, curiosity, self-discipline, a backbone, combined with spiritual and emotional depth.
Never until anti-racism became mainstream have I experienced so many white people so eager to tell me which ways I am oppressed, and how they will always be innately more “privileged” and powerful than me.
The days of tarnishing everyone you disagree with as a racist, bigot, and phobic are numbered, soon enough you’ll have to appeal to people’s logic instead of exploiting people’s need to be liked.
People need a day to experience the utopias they are so hell-bent on creating so they can finally see that you can’t politicise your way out of the human condition.

When disagreeing with someone, if you have a point instead of a grudge, you make a counterargument not a character assassination.
Have the discernment to know the difference between hate speech and speech you hate.
Your care for ‘vulnerable groups’ becomes suspicious when the entire scope of your work focuses on how they are doomed and never how they can overcome.
We also live in an age of fragility because victimhood is the only thing that protects you from critique, responsibility, and the expectation to be reasonable.
I respect people who don’t give into the pressure of looking like a good person, and work privately on being a better person.
I don’t consider my position to be left nor right. I am merely cautious about anything I perceive to hinder curiosity, discussion, compassion, self-awareness, dignity, and respect.
