(via Condescending Wonka)
Dear Mr. Wheaton
As a black bisexual woman I’m going to have to kindly ask you to STFU and worry about your own privileges, before calling anybody else out on their shit.
You have this Condescending Wonka joke on here and totally disregard all Black and other POC LGBT people and their families that are fighting hard for marriage equality and paying the price for it. You think this shit is funny? You consider this a fact? Yet where is your outrage at the many Black LGBT voices that are silenced in the LGBT community? I don’t seem to recall you using your voice to bring attention to Cece McDonald, I doubt you even know who she is.
How about, instead of reblogging asshole memes that are geared towards causing frictions between two oppressed groups while ignoring the intersections between them, you instead sit down and work out your own issues that you have with race, sex and class so you can become a well informed ally of these people. Because if this is how you plan to continue showing your support for marriage equality, I as both a bisexual and a black person do NOT want you speaking for me.
homophobia is bad, but this is such a red herring issue being used to throw focus away from the lobbying groups and groups with power, resources and leverage to actually get these discriminatory legislation on the ballot across the country. Institutional discrimination is always going to be fueled by those with power & privilege. always.
that awkward moment when the face of substantive anti-equality legislation and bigotry is overwhelmingly white but instead of focusing on dismantling power structures this dude would rather pit marginalized people against each other and erase queer black people in the process
keeping this on my dash
