yeah i mean??? sentiments like that totally ignore the fact that misogyny and misandry - as well as all the other things they list - are not the same and don’t have the same impact???
let’s say someone’s been hitting me with a stick
and finally i get fed up and i rip out a handful of grass and throw it at them
“OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD. HOW COULD YOU? HOW CAN YOU SAY YOU WANT EQUALITY. WHY WOULD YOU THROW GRASS AT ME IF YOU WANT ME TO TREAT YOU NICELY AND GIVE YOU HUMAN RIGHTS.”
“well i mean you …. you’ve been beating me with a stick??? you’re beating me right now, actually, and i know throwing grass doesn’t actually do anything but it makes me feel better about the situation and it’s kind of funny and it makes it more bearab-“
“BUT WHEN YOU THROW GRASS AT ME, IT IS JUST AS BAD AS ME HITTING YOU WITH THIS STICK. IF YOU WANT TO BE EQUAL YOU HAVE TO TREAT ME EQUAL”
a beautiful metaphor.
