Be Less Of A Dick



Seriously, Richard. You’re an intelligent, educated man of science. It would take so little for you to pull your head out of your ass.

Prejudice against white people can be real, but it’s not racism. Prejudice against men can be real, but it’s not sexism. Racism and sexism include elements of systemic or institutionalized oppression, and the dominant cultural group is, by definition, not oppressed.

The concepts of cultural hegemony and systemic oppression really aren’t all that complicated, but they do require that you acknowledge the existence of both white and male privilege without being sarcastic.

It’s not that big a deal to wrap your head around these ideas, and given your sharp mind, I’m hopeful that one day you’ll have a legitimate epiphany about this stuff and stop acting like such a smug prick.
