It’s not rude, don’t worry.
I don’t bash people for TALKING about sexism, racism, any of that shit. Having a discussion is fine. It’s when they start making absurd claims, or say things that are just blatantly stupid, without thought, or overtly hostile that I enjoy laughing at them for.
Things like, “ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE RACIST PIECES OF SHIT” Which I’ve seen plenty of. Most of them don’t even see the irony and hypocrisy of the sentence.
Thing is, I remember what it was like to be a kid. Most of them are overconfident, think they’re the only one with problems, and have very little worldy experience to actually have a good discussion on it. Is it okay for them to look into it? Yeah, no shit. But here on Tumblr, there’s very little that actually gets them to look at other perspectives. Unlike real life, where ridicule and differing opinions are a thing, they can pretty much just bounce stupidity off each other without any consequence or anyone challenging them.
If they don’t want to hear an opinion, they can LITERALLY block it. Straight up. That’s toxic as fuck, and anyone with half a brain knows this.
I don’t say things to random kids talking about important issues. Just the fucking morons screaming at the top of their lungs that their parents are misogynists and sexists for not letting their 14 year old kid go to some party filled with drinking adults.
