When a self proclaimed ‘realist’ tries to call me an ‘idealist’ they are trying to decouple my claim to legitimacy by marginalizing it as utopian. If this ever happens to you, know this:
What the person you are speaking to is really saying is 'I do not believe people…
Interesting how this graphic pits two marginalized and oppressed groups against each other.
This is a common MRM tactic that is less than effective at shifting the understanding of oppression.
These are two completely different situations and people.
Banks, falsely accused of rape which is an outrage. But this graphic is trying to play up the commonality of false rape allegations. This is an incredibly rare occurrence. Interestingly enough, the person who falsely accused him now owes almost 3 million dollars and Banks is now an advocate, activist and successful human.
Sarkeesian is an outspoken feminist, anti-MRA activist and a woman. Which obviously makes her a bad person, right? She speaks out against the sexualization of video game characters and the perpetuation of female oppression and rape culture. Advocating for ALL rape victims who just so happen to be overwhelmingly female.
The funding difference here is not because Sarkeesian is female and Banks is male. The difference here is because Sarkeesian is white and Banks is a black male. She is also maintains a high level of internet infamy whereas Banks does not.
This is also the first time i have EVER seen an MRA graphic advocate for a male POC. But guess what?! It didn’t advocate for him, it used him as a platform to attack another oppressed person.
So here’s what the graphic did:
- Pit two marginalized people against each other.
- Attacked Sarkeesian because she speaks out against your bull shit movement
- Demonstrated your apparent lack of understanding of social and political oppression of BOTH of these people
- it showed how little you people actually care for black men in your movement, showing that they are only political pedestals on which you can spew your anti equality sentiments
In conclusion, this graphic is misleading, biased, false, misogynistic and racist.
Well played MRAs.
Hope you’re proud of yourselves.
