Why do you do it? No, really, why? Why do you insist on asking people’s opinion of something and then completely dismissing them when they tell you that you are being a white, colonizing, privileged, male asshole? Why do you do it every time? What makes you think that acting like a patriarchal shit and then ending your posts with a heart is going to win you any slack whatsoever?
Oh, and don’t get me started on your comment, “any time I’m being oppressive, you have my permission to call me on it.”
Fuck you! Yeah, fuck you in the eye! I don’t need your permission to tell you that you’re being an oppressive, entitled piece of shit. What you need is permission from yourself to shut your fucking mouth and listen to what people are telling you. Especially when you asked for their opinion! You didn’t like what they told you so you are just going to do what you wanted to anyway.
So why ask the question at all? Was it just to get people to reply so you could patronize them? Or is it because it was two women telling you that you were being a gentrifying fuck that you decided to dismiss their concerns?
I’m sure the POC in the neighborhood you work in will be really appreciative of the white savior riding to their rescue and cleaning up the blight in their neighborhood with your “Adopt a Block” program, run by your boss who wouldn’t even have a business in that neighborhood if it wasn’t becoming the next white hipster mecca.
Yeah, I said it, fuck you and the white stallion you rode in on, savior boy.
